    The same Dispensationalists that say that nothing written in the epistle to the Hebrews applies to the body of Christ also are strong supporters for Once Saved Always Saved and claim that a person can be the worst sinner in the world after being saved and they will never lose their salvation.
    Learn to read what is written.

    The people who are supposed to be experts and who claim to understand the science are precisely the people who are blind to the evidence.

    Since going to church is only a very small part of the Christian life, I don't think we should put to much emphasis on our church. Christ didn't spend any time preaching about going to church but he spent a lot of time teaching about how we should care for each other. We should spend far more time in service to our fellow humans than anything else. Not judging them, simply meeting them where they are going from there.
    Galatians 5:22-23 (New International Version)

    But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

    What are my fruits today?

    "Moral standards" are a lot like lighthouses: they exist to help us stay on course as we sail through life. But we have to steer BY them, but not directly AT them. Lest we end up marooned on the shoals of perpetual self-righteousness.

    That was a question for those of the dispensation-list opinion referenced by Genuine. If I must translate, I was being sarcastic at the idea that spiritual truth applicable to one person was not truth applied to another person.

    25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
    26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
    27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.
    Indeed... "the day approaching" refers to the judgment of Israel in the great tribulation.
