    What Would Be The Essential Components of Ensuring Eternal Life in Heaven.

    No. What did you think, that it's been 48 hours and so I'd forget that I've already responded to this idiocy and that I told you that I wouldn't answer any further until you respond directly to what I've already said? In short, I'm not stupid enough to allow you to bait me into accepting your...

    There are not two standards of righteousness. We've not been given a new set of rules by which to live... Galatians 3:21 Is the law then against the promises of God? Certainly not! For if there had been a law given which could have given life, truly righteousness would have been by the law...

    He also spent his entire ministry telling people not to ever allow themselves to be placed under the law. It isn't about following the rules. You can live by a list of rules or you can live by the Spirit. Not both. Romans 7:6 But now we have been delivered from the law, having died to what we...

    As I said, you seem not to understand what it means to love your neighbor! It certainly has nothing to do with paying their bills for them (duh!) Regardless, to teach conditional blessing is to teach law, which Jesus did, most especially in Matthew 5 which begins with the so called...

    @Jefferson, Do you know of a reading list that Bob ever compiled? If so, can you get it and send it to me?

    What Would Be The Essential Components of Ensuring Eternal Life in Heaven.

    I actually wrote a rather lengthy open letter to Standford one time and discovered that he had passed away before I was even finished with it. I still have it around in some box somewhere. I never sent it because I figured no one in his organization was going to be convinced that he wasn't being...

    Any "good deeds" done out of obligation are of your flesh and will profit you nothing. There's no uncertainty on my part aside from figuring out what your motives are.

    That's false, Idolater! It isn't that ambiguous at all. It isn't difficult to understand what the Greek's were talking about when they used "logos" any more than it is to figure out what the word, "agape" meant or any other Greek word. No it didn't and yes, I've already given you the biblical...

    No. Not until you respond to what I've already said with something more than one or two sentences. I doubt very much that you have any idea what loving your neighbor even means and its becoming pretty obvious that you're one of those who aren't here to have a real discussion anyway. You're a...

    Jesus taught the Law, Jenkins. He taught the law to Jews who were under the law. If you think you're a Christian because you obey God's commandments, you've been deceived. Understandably so but deceived nonetheless. Being a de-facto Messianic Jew MIGHT be just enough to get you saved but it is...

    Our Moral God

    The bible is not the only place in history where the Greek word "logos" is used so we have just a tad bit more than that, like the whole of extant Greek literature and history.

    Paying my neighbors bills would be the opposite of love. What sort of mental gymnastics are you performing that tells you that relieving someone of their responsibilities is a loving thing to do? Do you want people to pay your debts? If you do then you're a fool and deserve the poverty life...

    If you love your neighbor because there's a rule that says to do so then your doing so will profit you nothing. Such works will be burned up on Judgment Day.

    This isn't correct. The fact remains that we have the bible in the original language in which it was written. No translation is more authoritative than the original language and we do not have to guess as to the meaning of such common Greek words as "logos". It's the word the Greeks used to...

    Saying it doesn't make it so. So says you. The opening post is an opening post in a web forum. It it is not a book length treatise on the ancient Greek etymology of a single Greek word. You want to complain about my "longwindedness" in one breath and then pretend like I have to present...

    I don't care how Jerome translated it. It DOES NOT mean word - period. That isn't my opinion, its a fact of history. Deal with it. What are you even doing here? If you have nothing of substance to offer then just go away and waste someone else's time.

    Why wouldn't it? Do what? The second command? Look, I'm done trying to read your mind. The next time you post something cryptic or nonsensical, I'll ignore it. If you persist, I'll ignore you altogether. Clete

    What are you talking about? I assume you meant Stanford rather than Sanderson but you asked whether I thought he was in error and I said "No" not even knowing exactly what it was you were referring to. In other words, I was being flippant because your question is unanswerable with any substance...

    It would be nice if there were a place where you could put a note that explains why you've put someone on ignore. I took Hoping off ignore and it lasted less than 48 hours before he said something that reminded me of his cult teaching nonsense about believing that he is sinless. What degree of...

    WAIT! You're the idiot that believes he doesn't ever sin! What the Hell am I doing even talking to you at all? Do not respond to any of my other posts. I won't read it. You aren't a Christian at all. You belong to a cult. You will go to Hell if you do not repent. Every breath you take...
