This recently happened to the Atlanta Fire Marshall too. Apparently if someone believes homosexuality is a sin, that is a firable offence. Remember when homosexuals just wanted tolerance? I guess it's just one sided!

Almost converting isn't good enough. So what is the point? There is nothing to get excited about if Hitchens almost believed.

Those words about baptism were quoted from scripture, I didn't make them up. It says very clearly that baptism saves. Some try to follow tradition by saying that there are two baptisms and others resort to saying that baptism is a type and shadow of what happens at salvation. You are missing the point that baptism actually saves because it is in baptism that one is placed in Christ.

Baptism...identifies you as a Christ follower. It does not save you, the Holy Spirit does not become activated afterwards, therefore, I'd say, wait a bit...
There is also an antitype which now saves us—baptism (not the removal of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God), through the resurrection of Jesus Christ,
I Peter 3:21 NKJV

He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.
Mark 16:16 NKJV

Baptism saves people!

Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Acts 2:38 NKJV

For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
Galatians 3:27 NKJV

The Holy Spirit is received or "activated" at baptism and it is at baptism that one puts on Christ and is therefore saved.

I don't get why supposed Christians support Trump. He owns casinos with strip clubs in them, has had multiple wives, has bragged about committing adultery, and then pretends to be Christian. Has gambling, prostitution, fornication, adultery, a false witness, and bankruptcy all become Christian values?

John Yurich...

Andy Stanley does teach an embracing of Jesus, but I don't know if he believes one must repent of their sins. If you watch his sermon "When Gracy met Truthy", he seems to think grace trumps over a openly sinful lifestyle. He seems accusatory toward God as if He is unfair and acts contradictory. He even tells a story how a gay couple was serving at North Point church and was told to stop, not because of their homosexuality, but because one of the men were still married. His ministry is a big red flag to me.

I've attended Northpoint before when invited by some acquaintances. Once was enough for me and my wife! Between the way to loud rock music, Andy Stanley's stick, and my gaydar going off constantly, I couldn't imagine being a member of that church. A few things really stood out. One, I was invited to come hear Andy Stanley preach and he wasn't even there. I mean, I heard him preach, and watched him preaching, but it was on a movie screen! He has a couple satellite churches and goes around preaching to those and broadcast the sermons live at his other churches. It just seemed like I was going to church to watch tv. It also made church feel like a McDonald's franchise to me. Also, there seemed like an over abundance of effeminate guys running around. I believe my kid's Sunday school teachers may have been gay. They just came across that way, so much so that my wife made a comment to some people who asked if we would be interested in joining the church. If a pastor called to talk to us about joining, she wanted to know their stance on homosexuality. We never got called, lol.

The affront to reason comes from those who believe in Darwinism without any evidence for it. I'm still waiting for the "missing link".

And if Christ is not risen, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins! Then also those who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men the most pitiable.

I Corinthians 15:17-19 NKJV

Jim Lincoln from Nebraska writes:
I can think of 4 reasons that a Christian might not support Trump, and also anyone else who expects a contract to be honored and those reasons are: Melania Trump - ?Ivana Trump - ?Ivanka Trump - ?Marla Maples.

Matthew 19: 7 They said to him, “Why then did Moses command one to give a certificate of divorce and to send her away?” 8 He said to them, “Because of your hardness of heart Moses allowed you to divorce your wives, but from the beginning it was not so. 9 And I say to you: whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery.”

1 Corinthians 6:9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, 10 nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.---ESV

I would add to that:

He goes around claiming to be of Christ and doesn't seem to know much about Christianity.

He ran a casino.

He has filed for bankruptcy. We don't need someone in office that is poor with money and makes bad decisions. America is almost bankrupt as it is.

Dorcas...
I get that people here don't like the Catholic church but isn't the real problem that the state of MA is saying they must hire a gay person? If they do that to them, they will be doing that to other churches also. Whatever happened to freedom of religion?!

Wow, here the state is denying religious liberty and all folks want to do is crack Catholic jokes about pedophilia! Truth be told, there have been more pedophiles in schools and other places than Catholic schools and churches. People just like piling on.

Faith comes by hearing, but not all hear. Only those whom the Lord opens the understanding will hear.

But I say, have they not heard? Yes indeed: “Their sound has gone out to all the earth, And their words to the ends of the world.”
Romans 10:18

They all hear, the don't all choose to believe.

And he went into the synagogue and spoke boldly for three months, reasoning and persuading concerning the things of the kingdom of God.
Acts 19:8

If they couldn't understand Paul's preaching, I wonder why he would use reason and persuasion techniques?

For indeed the gospel was preached to us as well as to them; but the word which they heard did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in those who heard it.
Hebrews 4:2

The gospel doesn't profit some because it wasn't "mixed with faith in those who heard it." It doesn't say it didn't profit them because they didn't understand.

Lurker...

But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness...
Romans 4:5-8

I believed in Him who justifies the ungodly and my faith was accounted for righteousness.

If I qout from scripture, why do you find fault with that?

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”
Romans 1:16-17

...the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe.
Romans 3:21-22 NKJV

You mock me for stating that I have been made righteous, but the righteousness is of God through faith and not my own.

for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.
Romans 3:23-24, 26

One final time, where does faith come from, free will, which is tainted by sin? {see Jeremiah 17:9}
-------
Yes!

For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, “ Lord , who has believed our report?” So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Romans 10:10, 13-14, 16-17

Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. But they have not all obeyed the gospel. With the heart one believes unto righteousness. It says "unto righteousness" because before they believed their heart was wicked.

You dance well.
Of course Abraham believed first. The point is "it" was imputed to him for righteousness. What was "it"? His faith...... his act of believing. So here it is again, applied to you, according to your theology:
'I, J4J, believed Jesus of my own free will and "it" was credited to my account for righteousness.'
Don't be ashamed to proclaim your righteousness from the rooftops, J4J. Make your boast and be proud of it.
But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness, just as David also describes the blessedness of the man to whom God imputes righteousness apart from works: “Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, And whose sins are covered; Blessed is the man to whom the Lord shall not impute sin.”
Romans 4:5-8

I believed in Him who justified the ungodly and my faith was accounted for righteousness.

fiver...

“O house of Israel, can I not do with you as this potter?” says the Lord . “Look, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are you in My hand, O house of Israel! The instant I speak concerning a nation and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, to pull down, and to destroy it, if that nation against whom I have spoken turns from its evil, I will relent of the disaster that I thought to bring upon it.
Jeremiah 18:6-8

He makes vessels of dishonor unless they repent. If they repent, He will relent. He does as He pleaded. He saves those who repent and believes.

For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Hebrews 4:12

Obviously it has pierced a few here who now have resorted to lies.

GSMontana...
If I had contradicted myself, you would have been more than willing to point it out with examples.

F Berringe...
God is sovereign and I never suggested different. Scripture teaches over and over again that God has people choose who they will serve or tells them what they must do to be saved or receive His blessing. He has chosen to give people choices. The choices are dependent on God granting them to people and not on the people doing the choosing.

just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will,
Ephesians 1:4-5

God chose that those in Him (Jesus) would be without blame because He predestined to adopt them. How and when are Believers in Him?!

How is it they all of a sudden understand, whereas others do not?
2. True, so if Christ opens or keeps shut the understanding, then it isn't based on your free will.
3. "whose heart the Lord opened". Now, it isn't based on her 'hearing'. Many worship God and die and go to hell, so being a 'worshiper' does not mean one is saved.
4. Neither I nor that verse implied such.
5. "Then opened he their understanding".
1) God sends preaching for people to understand. Some don't want to believe, therefore they don't understand. Others who understand still don't want to believe.
2) It was based off of their free will. They previously would not believe so God didn't allow them to when He was here on earth.
3)Apart from hearing, how else would she believe? To say Lydia was a Gentile worshiper meant she believed in God. She had not yet received the gospel message.
4) In a dream, in a vision of the night, When deep sleep falls upon men, While slumbering on their beds, Then He opens the ears of men, And seals their instruction.
Job 33:15-16
5) "Then He said to them, “Thus it is written," Luke 24:46
He showed them from scripture so that they understood those things that were prophesied about Him and how He fulfilled those prophecies.
