      If believing the gospel is so easy, why would it be so hard for you to turn your back on your religion, give up, and trust the LORD?

      Yeah. It's not that easy, is it.

        -like no work?

        -you are what you do

        -isn't that work?

        -don't call it work

        -what do you call it?

        -what you do
        Chrys, which specific works do you participate in that makes you a Christian?
        TRUST
        is a fragile thing.

        Easy to break, Easy to lose
        and one of the hardest things to
        ever get back.

            What works, specifically do you do that would allow you to label yourself as a Christian?

            You ARE what you believe. Why do works if they do not correspond with your beliefs?

              Sounds good, but..

              -what I do are works
              -and
              -I will be judged on my works
              -not on my beliefs
              Then your belief doesn't actually define you, does it?
              You aren't what you eat, but you're always what you swallow.

                  Jesus said we will be judged by what we have done.




                  weren't you paying attention?
                  Jesus says we will be judged by what we have done.

                  • judged, yes

                    but not judged unto salvation


                    salvation is judged on faith alone

                      convenient reasoning.

                        You ARE what you believe. Why do works if they do not correspond with your beliefs?
                        these are very good questions and I appreciate the opportunity to answer them
                        -but
                        -you must understand that I cannot take the time or space to answer them completely
                        1.)I believe Jesus died for all mankind making it possible for us to be saved
                        2.)works that might label me as a christian are not limited to
                        -going to church on sunday
                        -eating fish on fridays during lent
                        -a cross on my porch
                        3.)works do not always correspond with beliefs and that is called sin, something that we do everyday but we always repent and try to do better

                              -they are not sure of their beliefs

                              -why?

                              -so many do not believe it

                              -it is easy to be threatened by the beliefs of others

                              -test them

                              -how?

                              -with reason, logic, source, numbers, and time

                              -that's a lot of testing

                              -better get started

                                That's what I thought. You'll have to convince OD though.

                                That was my understanding of your position. It's an interesting difference between us. I think what we do reflects us...or mostly what matters to us. I doubt God will be overly cross with whoever has it wrong, considering.

                                Anyway, just watched Bridge of Spies with the whole family. It's good that they still make movies about things that matter.
