I see you have backtracked from your ridiculous "few" comment. But, now that you have lost your argument you are trying to bait me with palpably stupid loaded questions. Sounds more like the technique of a DPRK agent, rather than the spiritual conduct expected of a supposed Christian.
Biblically speaking human nature is the same the world over, irrespective of the government you are under. If you are a Christian, study your bible.

There are other reasons. You are ignoring the immense power of spontaneous mass hysteria and also deliberately projected mass hypnosis, not to mention the influence of spiritual principalities and powers.
The example of "normal nations" with the mass hysteria at the time of the deaths of Diana the self-confessed adulteress and Jackson the maker of out of court settlements to little boys who had shared his bed are NOT instructive to North Koreans in this matter.
Those involved in such hysteria were not "stupid" either. That IS instructive.

No more than I care to reckon with balls of glass instead of the true pearls, which being so rare, as the Lord would define, that such are in reserve for when the Holy bread and communion needs to be resupplied. There will be no paying of pearls for the common and polluted bread of communion currently on offer.

I think this rappin' reprobate needs to be let go. We could pile on all the Scripture we want and unless the Holy Spirit moves upon him, there will be no change of heart. We must in the end, let him smoke his weed, rap his, uh, rap and be who he wants/needs to be and God will hold him in accountability. He can write as much as he wants with his so called edumacated tones, but his immaturity and rebellious attitudes shine through quite well. Will you, rhythm-rapper offer Jesus Christ a drag when He returns? Will you go before Him on Judgment Day and offer to rap the 23rd Psalm before He continues with His judgment? Somehow, I just don't think so.
I would say someone needs to get this Revival N Reformation guy a beat, for he's ready to go! but alas, this fellow just needs and go have a deep re-reading of the Holy Bible (which is always God's will, guarenteed), self-examination, and putting his mouth in the dust if so there may be hope.

A reply to this will be, "Molly, get a life," which will prove my point. I'm just sad about this, but you will see it is true if you lurk around these sermonaudio news comments. A great percentage of them are sarcastic in tone. No wonder I went away (It wasn't just Tony's comment about my being demon possessed, which I am not).

2. The 40 plus KJV translators translated translated it "by faith" in more than one occasion. I tend to trust --(EMBELISH-good point Doc) 3. At least I am theologically honest to admit that both faith and grace (and blood) are all equal grounds for justification. What you are proposing is that someone who is elect but does not necessarily have faith can be justified. A faithless elect?
Sorry but now your talking about me What you are proposing is that someone who is elect but does not necessarily have faith
ME, Didn't have a clue for 48 years
not necessarily have faith can be justified
Same, someone in the Bible said He is the author and finisher of salvation, or did I miss read.

Wow, you the man I pray for such an individual that he will be saved will be saved will be saved If I do not pray, then their is a big chance that he would never be saved. never be saved never be saved never be saved
So,went right over the head,or Jago you know more than you think (or both)
I do not know any more than you do who God will draw to Himself
Amen Why must anyone know unless its pride Doc is it pride your full of, or what Why must you know who God calls for Himself, or better yet, why must the saved person even be concerned about being elect. Is not His Grace sufficiant for you?

Good verses, quite vain of you to use them, unless you meant me, then thank you. joke-Abi, laugh, do you ever laugh (I know, at my comments.)
Abi, did anyone say anything about hating you? (verses out of context)
People are praying for you, did you not read anything. Don't sound like a crowd that hates you.
What did you come to SA for to see Abi
Matthew 11: 18 For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He hath a devil.
19 The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children
Matthew 11:8 But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kings' houses
Matthew 9 17Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.

Maybe you should do like that pope did dig him up, and punish him.

Spoken like a true SINNER The Bible says none of that.
Abigail you quote: In the Sermon on the Mount Jesus Christ taught us what perfection is and He said, "Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect."
But then the Bible says 1 John 1 7But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin
8If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us 1 John 2 9He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now Matthew 22 36Master, which is the great commandment in the law? 37Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38This is the first and great commandment 39And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
Galatians 5:14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
