One has a choice to agree or not, to admit ones inability to save themselves or not. There is a choice and the options are not synonyms.
Believing in isn't neglecting.
Admittance and acceptance are not the same as refusal and having a stiff neck.

[MENTION=14521]God's Truth[/MENTION], @pospthebuilder, [MENTION=5582]Jacob[/MENTION] you're still in the Gospel of Works given to the Jews and EXCLUSIVELY to the Jews.
Being that I am assuming that the three of you are NOT Jews by lineage, you need to hear the RISEN Lord's Gospel of Salvation given face-to-face first-hand account to Paul to give to you.
Rejecting the Gospel of Salvation and remitting yourselves to the Gospel of Works given to the Jews EXCLUSIVELY (that you believe it or not is irrelevant) you are REJECTING the RISEN Lord's salvation.
Israel is under condemnation as a whole, ONLY individual Jews can be SAVED by believing the RISEN Lord's Gospel of Salvation given to the Apostle Paul to give to EVERYBODY else from that revelation on of how an INDIVIDUAL can be saved.
The opportunity for ISRAEL AS A WHOLE to be saved was last rejected when Stephen was stoned to death and the Lord sat down again on His throne, even though He was standing expecting Israel as a WHOLE to accept Him and what they had SEEN FIRST HAND, had they accepted Stephen's Gospel, the Lord would have come to establish His Kingdom at that moment, being that they stoned Stephen, they REJECTED God's plea for them to accept WHO He is and WHAT He did, being that they REJECTED God's plea, then the Lord sat down again and REVEALED to Paul God's Gospel of Salvation to the whole world (Jews and Gentiles).
Now, you guys want to stay on the Gospel of Works given EXCLUSIVELY to the Jews and EXCLUSIVELY to the Jews and that are no longer in force, hey, go have at it.
Yes is is GOD.Yes, they are God.
How much obeying....when one chooses to abide by the Spirit and actually accepts the free gift of Faith then one is to do something with said life and potential; not for one's own sake, and GOD forbid to boast; but for the sake of all and the glory of ONE. Not accepting said free gift and using such as if one did receive it is indeed a choice too, and knowingly going against what is written in the word and written in the hearts and minds of the believer. Is one obeying when they hear and follow?How much obeying is in what you said?
1John 5:7 (AKJV/PCE)(5:7) For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
Jacob;You are welcome.
No one enters that grace unless they are ready to submit to God their whole life and do exactly as he says.How much obeying in John 3:16 - For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever BELIEVETH in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
or maybe your false doctrine bible says in John 3:16 - For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever OBEYETH in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
How about when Jesus said:
John 6:35 - And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that BELIEVETH on me shall never thirst.
or maybe your false doctrine bible says in
John 6:35 - And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that OBEYETH on me shall never thirst.
I have just concluded that you, gt, are a hyper-Calvinist in reverse.
The Holy Spirit is not a proxy.Especially Jesus saying that Jesus is NOT God the Father with a physical body as you peddle your false doctrine.
