Oh, and of course, I've got all me family friends on SA, who have been such an encouragement to me over the years.

G'day Dave, I been really poorly today, and forgot to listen to your audio-mail, just had a listen. Oh my, great to hear Webby, even in hospital, and in such a dire position. But hey, it's the voice of a saint, one born again by the will of God, and indwelt by the Spirit of Jesus himself, thusly my dear brother in Christ, who has been washed clean in the blood of the Saviour, and shortly to meet him who saved him from eternal death and separation from God. Give Dave2 my best wishes, I sure wish I was there to be with him and you. Ongoing prayers that the Lord will bless him mightily and make the passage easy, to reach the glories of heaven with much joy and assurance of faith, as he enters the celestial city to be with God forever. Amen.

My sister was saved after an alter call.If people are getting saved what is the problem?Let us trust the Holy Spirit to do His work.What God has started He will complete.
It is good to hear of your sister being saved, Andrea. Neither my late parents nor brother nor two sisters are saved, and they show no sign of the Spirit working in their hearts, so I am very much alone in the world, except that I have Father, Son and Holy Ghost for my constant companions, the Almighty God, the Holy Trinity, the Great Creator, the Saviour of The World. Praise the Lord for his wonderful grace and mercy.

Hi John,bless you too brother!In Greece the official language is Greek,however English is spoken everywhere as Greece has so much tourism.There is no problem being understood and Greeks are very friendly.You mention Patmos,our Bible study group is thinking of going there in September.We shall see.You are welcome to join us!!Blessings to you
Hi Andrea, and bless you for such a warm invitation. To see Patmos will be a great experience for your group, and be where John wrote the last book of the Bible, and was dictated letters to seven churches by the Lord himself. Wow, what an experience! Bible Studies on Patmos.

Yes you are right John Uk my problem is not that he asked, but how he asked and why did he ask in that way without making it clear? But maybe he didn't do it for the reason I believe he did it. So if not then yes it is not ever foolish to ask and sorry John 4 J it is not my place to examine your heart but Gods and yours.
That's okay Kev, and thanks for your best wishes, I have a migraine today.

Yes, in defense of J4, he did mention in an earlier post, that because he has debated his points many times here on the threads, he imagined that there was no-one who did not know his belief structure and where he was coming from. But he did not allow for the many recent additions to the forums, who have never come across him yet.

By all means engage him and talk to him about his heterodox beliefs. It is God who makes use of words to shine the light into all our hearts and conform us to both the character of Jesus and to the truth of scripture. I am a long way off both, but with a willing heart, I am hopeful of ongoing sanctification and improvement.

John UK I'm thankful you told him the same thing I was trying to tell him. The only reason I am such a sucker answering these questions is the hope of helping someone Allie I know it is foolish though.
Matthew 28:19
19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Could you really substitute Spirit baptism where Jesus clearly COMMANDS his disciples to go baptize?
Like the old Puritan writers said stay on the "old path", if you find yourself on some new exciting path no one is on John 4 J then the chances are you are on the wrong path. Narrow is the path and straight is the gate so I hope you find it.
Hi Kev, Lord bless

J4J has answers for all your biblical points, none answers of which are orthodox, but he really believes them. It behoves us to be concerned for him, and show Christian concern.

All,
You are free to continue back and forth with john 4 Jesus, but why? He persists in heresy. John 4 Jesus is really for baptism. Pray for folks like him instead of listening to him twist scripture over and over. What is their to gain? This is not questioning but platforming of baptismal salvation. Enjoy your holiday weekend.
Allie, reread J4's comments again, and this time cease thinking about water baptism. John does not believe water baptism is for today, so he does not believe in baptismal regeneration. All his references to baptism is to the Spirit's work of baptising us into Christ. Thank you.

One Lord (Jesus Christ)
One faith (in Jesus Christ)
One baptism (by the Spirit into Christ, spiritually, through faith)

Hey Andrea, Lord bless sister.

Say, is there anywhere in Greece or in the islands like Patmos where the main language is English? You seem to speak English very well, as well as Greek.

Well, Graham approach is an ecumenical mess, new Calvinism is a mess of a different sort

But anyway, Palau is a Latin American Billy Graham.

Jim, the point I am trying to make, and which you missed, is that it is very easy to observe what others are doing to promote their own version of Christianity, and condemn them out of hand. But what are the Christians doing to promote Christianity in Cuba? Hmmm?

Now I'm only going by what the article says. If there are some flower power people in Cuba doing a sterling work there, then I will rejoice in that, rather than grumbling about others who are doing things contrary to my own belief structure.

It's so easy to censure others while all the time doing nothing for the truth ourselves.

The problem J4 has is this:

"I believe that a sinner repents and believes, therefore God then elects them unto salvation, then God baptises them with the Holy Ghost."

Now please note, folks, that this statement goes contrary to the word of God, and it makes God subservient to the whims of a "freewill" sinner, who can choose or reject Christ any time he wants, it is all down to him.

Grace, on the other hand, is most wonderful, and shows God in all his love and wonder.

I don't understand that comment John? Luis Palau has nothing to do with old or new Calvinism , he is closely related to Billy Graham and his theology, q.v., Billy Graham Believes Catholic Doctrine of Salvation Without Bible, Gospel, or Name of Christ but of course it is just better to see the article that I have put up about Luis, himself in my original comment. if Luis had any theological orientation, it is Arminian.
Well Jim, so the result of such skewed thinking is..........?

Well of course neo-calvinism in the main has gone over to hyperpredestinationism which has as its motto, "God will do everything". Therefore, regarding Cuba, we must never attempt to get over there and train up the pastors in what we regard as the right way, because God himself will do that.

And the result of such skewed thinking is....?

John 4, why don't you just tell people you are not referring to water baptism? Or is it just some little game you're playing? Lurker has already chastised you, as I did earlier today. Now come on and cease being a child.

Hinduism, another religion of peace? Nah

But if there are any of God's elect ensconced in that false religion, Jesus will be sure to save them and get them out by the providence of God and mighty power of his Spirit.

John for JESUS wrote:
Obviously Calvinism stifles outreach! However, the Holy Spirit overcomes it and still brings people to repentance and faith. Two things I see going on here. One, God is still seeking the lost and Calvinism can't stop Him from that, but the world is becoming more and more hostile toward God and believers. They have the opportunity to believe and won't. That's their fault, not Calvinisms fault! Two, less converts mean less baptisms, but the rate of baptism has always been one per believer and that has not and will not change. Unless one is baptised, they are not saved, for "baptism saves" (1 Peter 3:21).
John, you've never believed the doctrines of grace, so you don't yet comprehend the great encouragement to evangelise that calvinistic theology presents to the Christian. You see, we believe in irresistible grace and effectual calling, whereby God guarantees to save souls (he gives the increase). It is not down to us, and our sales talk, but the power of God in his elect. So instead of being stifled, we go forth seeking to save that which is lost.

As for baptism, you don't believe in water baptism, but only Spirit baptism, regeneration, new birth, whatever. Hey Ho.

Observer wrote:
Intellectual assent can be called belief, and many stop there as though this were genuine faith. Faith is more than such belief. It is the heart dependently clinging onto what God says, and such a faith has life changing implications.
Amen bro, well put, thank you. I think the theologians call it a "lively faith", not in the sense of being bouncy, but a faith born of spiritual life which comes from God, a sort of "faith in action", which is never alone, but always accompanied by a complete change of mind in regard to sin, a healthy fear of the Lord, and a determined leaning entirely on the Lord Jesus Christ for this world and the next, seeing oneself as unworthy but rejoicing in Christ our Passover and the grace of God by which we are saved, having all sins forgiven and washed away, justified freely by the grace of God, and having an ongoing sanctification whereby God may chastise us for needless faults and failings, all of which is bound up in his great love for his elect, chosen in Christ before the foundation of the world, and destined for the eternal worship of him who deserves such worship, our Great Creator Spirit.

"I repented, believed and was born again without any understanding of the doctrines of grace. I have spoken to countless others for whom this is also true. Let God be God and let's do what is commanded us." (Observer)

This is true of myself as well. (ladybug)

This is also true of myself as well.

It is for this reason that every believer needs to recall the way in which the Lord called us by the gospel, where the word quickened us, bringing us to life with the Spirit, and setting the Lord Jesus Christ before our eyes as God's perfect Son, crucified for us, raised again, and ascended, reigning as King over all the earth, bringing many sons to glory through his intercession and by sending angels as ministering spirits to them that shall be heirs of salvation, the Spirit going where he wills and to whom he wills and when he wills, bringing sinners to new birth in God's purposes through whichever preacher he chooses, even if they be arminist or pentecostal, thusly the glory shall be God's not any one denomination or creedal statement, but God working in his way in his time, to bring souls to faith in Jesus Christ who loved them and gave himself for them. Praise the Lord! Gotta turn in. Nite.

Between half-past ten o’clock, when I entered that chapel, and half-past twelve o’clock, when I was back again at home, what a change had taken place in me! ***Simply*** by looking to Jesus I had been delivered from despair, and I was brought into such a joyous state of mind that, when they saw me at home, they said to me, "Something wonderful has happened to you," and I was eager to tell them all about it. Oh! there was joy in the household that day, when all heard that the eldest son had found the Saviour and knew himself to be forgiven.

Spurgeon Testimony

If strong meat is for the mature in Christ, and milk is for babes in Christ, guess what the sinner needs.

Oh, I know, he needs the Great Spirit to make a way of salvation which will cost him the death of his Son in the agony of the cross. The sinner will need a preacher to show him the way of salvation, that he can do nothing to save himself but must only look to the one who has done so much for him. There is much effort involved in all this. Some seem to dislike that the sinner must not make effort but simply receive eternal life as a free gift, looking unto Jesus. But that is the **simplicity** of it.

The big guns are become like little children, scowling and throwing a tantrum because they lost the referendum. Of course, they had a strategy in place if they lost, and are now implementing it, hoping to gain another referendum. And they'll keep on doing that until they get their way. It don't bother me none, I'm focussed on Jesus and have the joy of the Lord. I might have to live here for a while, but I'm actually a citizen of heaven.

My interest lies in heavenly things, not earthly things. Oh, that reminds me:

As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him...
(Colossians 2:6 KJV)

Receiving Christ is believing in him: faith is the eye of the soul, that sees the beauty, glory, fulness, and suitableness of Christ; the foot that goes to him, and the hand that takes hold on him, and the arm that receives and embraces him. John Gill

Anyone else round here received Christ and embraced him?
