    You need to stop with trying to encourage others to not speak up when they have been wronged here as I have been. You also need to stop encouraging people to not apologize, as marhig refused to do.

    Now correct your friend marhig and tell her about how Jesus is God.
    You need to learn that just because you read someone to not be in agreement with you that it is not the same as being wronged by them.

    I find apologies are most sincere if and when both parties admit some level of error.

    I tried; I'm not going to go round and round. You know that.

    Let it go so we can discuss with one another as opposed to over one another. Or do not. Your true motive will be shown either way.

    No, YOU need to learn that she didn't just oppose me---she said something and denied it, and then accused me of not reading properly.

    Now you have done all this before in the past and you do it again.

    Debate scriptures and doctrines and stop trying to tell me about myself, because you are wrong about me.
    Oh how I love the Word of God!

    Do not just read the word do it.

    Is the Bible the only sacred texts and why or why not.

    Now back to the topic of this thread.

    The Bible is the only sacred texts.

    Why is because salvation is from the Jews and those texts in the Holy Bible are from the Jews.
    Oh how I love the Word of God!

    Do not just read the word do it.

    "Believe me," said Jesus, "the time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem.

    You worship One of whom you know nothing. We worship One whom we know; for salvation comes from the Jews.

    I thought salvation was from GOD.

    how is it not until the Jew that one could be saved.

    Was Enoch a Jew?

    Abraham?

    Excuse my ignorance please; could you please give me the reference for the scripture you just shared? I recall it, but cannot locate it.

    John 4:21, and 22.

    I have given it to you before.

    Too bad more good things are not retained for you.

    You even said the exact same thing before about excusing you.

    How many times should you keep being excused when you have been shown?

    There are people in certain areas of the world who are a specific ethnicity.

    A Jew is one from a certain area of the world, and one who obeys God's commands.

    God loved Abraham and promised that from his descendants would come the Savior.

    God says not all from Israel are Israel, and the new Covenant tells us we are Jews and Israel if we have faith.

    If you have books with teachings from different people and different places, and even from different planets, as some teach, then it is not the same God and Jesus that salvation comes, and you have then mixed the cup of the Lord with the cup of demons.

    I know it sounds scary and tough, but it is the truth.

    1 Corinthians 10:21 You cannot drink the Lord's cup and the cup of demons: you cannot be joint-partakers both in the table of the Lord and in the table of demons.

    The Holy Bible is finished. We cannot add to it. You cannot add teaching from other people and places. You cannot take things out of the Bible that you don't agree with, and you cannot add things from other people and places.

    You cannot add books and writings and call them Holy Texts.
    Oh how I love the Word of God!

    Arrow salvation is from 'God'........

    Quote Originally Posted by God's Truth View Post

    Now back to the topic of this thread.

    The Bible is the only sacred texts.
    The Bible is one religious book compiled by a particular nation or culture of the earth at a particular point in time, including a stream of different time periods therefrom within that same cultural-context. Jews and Christians make up only about 1/3 of our planet's population, and is one of at least 5 other major religious denominations in the world.

    Below is just a rough draft generalized estimate from some surveys I collected for an idea of religious populations from various sources. Interestingly some predict Islam growing beyond Christianity at a steady pace currently and near and far future -

    Religious group populations on Earth:

    1) Christianity (32%)
    2) Muslim (24%)
    3) Hinduism (15%)
    4) Buddhism (7%)
    5) Chinese Folk Religions/traditions (6%)
    6) Other ( ---- %)
    7) Unaffiliated [secular, non-religious, agnostic/atheist] (16%)

    Why is because salvation is from the Jews and those texts in the Holy Bible are from the Jews.
    Only John puts that claim in Jesus mouth, per that writer's agenda of that particular gospel of course, for his thesis must have Judaism as its root to give the particular messianic branch of his own denomination some credential. John has also been redacted.

    Again, we're back to all this being included/con-cluded within a given cult-ural context, one you've choosen to accept as being 'exlcusively' God's own. On this point my original commentaries here and elsewhere hold, and we can also draw inspiration and insight from other religious texts as well, as the template and fullness of truth, knowledge and revelation is NOT limited to one religious cult or tradition. The Infinite Spirit by nature and dimension is uncontainable.

    2/3 of the world's population probably share a different opinion than you about the exclusivity, innerrancy or sacredness of the Bible alone, since they have their own 'sacred texts' as well. Those more eclectic, liberal and inclusive...will of course accept God's revelation within all religious traditions.

    Firstly, you have to DEMEAN the HOLY BIBLE to DEFEND your falseness. You claim John said something wrong. No, you are the one saying wrong things.

    You must know that you are in error when you have to demean the Holy Bible, as if God cannot preserve His written Word.

    All need to convert to the Holy Bible and give up their false teachings.

    You cannot add and subtract to the Holy Bible and make your own god as if it is the one and only God.
    Oh how I love the Word of God!

    So everytime someone asks me if I'm Mary, and I say I am, does that make me God? Of course not! Everyone says I am, what else was Jesus supposed to say when they asked him if he is the Christ the son of God? The only thing he could have said is I am. He couldn't say I was, or I will be, because he is the son of God so he said I am.

    Nothing in the verses that you quote where Jesus says I AM, have him saying he is God, he only ever says that he is the son of God, and that's who he says he is from the beginning, and according to him and his apostles that's what we are to believe to be saved. We are to believe in Jesus and believe that he is the son of God, and that is also the revelation that Peter received from the father, that Jesus is the Christ the son of the living God, not that Jesus is God.

    You shouldn't call people lost and not in Christ who believe that Jesus is the son of God yet don't believe that he is God. Because that's what we are told to believe in the Bible.
    You shouldn't assume the Jews were as ignorant of I AM as you apparently are. Let's watch you distort yourself explaining this one 'Mary'.


    John 8:58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.

    Ms. Mary is free to speak on whatever she chooses here, in this thread. GT, and you and everyone else are also afforded the same.

    There is a tie that binds each of us here; and that tie is that we are all self proclaimed Christian's.
    The Koran doesn't says Jesus is God and says he isn't.

    As far as your thread direction? Just saying it is off-track. Your thread.
    My New Years Resolution: 1 Peter 3:15
    Omniscient without man's qualification. John 1:3 "Nothing"

    Mighty, ALL mighty (omnipotent). Revelation 1:8
    No possible limitation Isaiah 40:25 Joshua 24:15

    Is Calvinism okay? Yep

    Now to Him who is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think... Amen. -Ephesians 3:20 & 21

    1Co 13:11 ... when I became an adult, I set aside childish ways. Titus 3:10 Ephesians 4:29-32; 5:11
