A good word to preach & to share with others in a spirit of love & humility, as I am what, I am, but only by the mere mercies of Christ Grace Alone; G-Godâ€™s, R-Righteousness-A-At-C-Christ- E-Expense!
Pro 1:7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, But fools despise wisdom & instruction.
Pro 9:10 â€śThe fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, & the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
Here is a good example in this recent, open air college campus preaching, of some saints, I know. How the unregenerate, are willing to lie, as the camera is recording, as they hate the truth. That apart from Christ Alone, we arenâ€™t good, or will ever achieve a self-righteous, by our best efforts. As we are ever so a fallen unregenerate sinner, who needs a new spiritual heart of flesh. That being lead & called to the Narrow Way, comes with a great cost of counting the cost, of being a lover & a follower of Christ!
As the girl in the Pink shirt, who had no issues with lying, & didnâ€™t like the Biblical truth,, that people were called sinners!
Gal 4:16 Have I therefore become your enemy because I tell you the truth?
God is ever so justified in being angry with whomever He choose to be with, since we arenâ€™ born into a state of neutrality; Eph 2:1-3!
A worthwhile read in God loving the sinner but hating his sin;!https://www.the-highway.com/lovesinner_Gerstner.html
From the Article; What leads almost everyone to believe that God loves the sinner is that God does the sinner so much good. He bestows so many favors including letting him continue to live. How can God let the sinner live & give him so many blessings,unless He loves him? There is a kind of love between God & sinners. We call it the â€ślove of benevolence.â€ť That means the love of good will. Benevolens willing well. Doing well. God can do well to the sinner without loving him with the other kind of love. â€śComplacent love,â€ť a pleasure in, affection for, admiration of. It exists in perfection between the Father & the Son, â€śin whom I am well pleasedâ€ť (Mat 3:17; Mk.1:11).
God is perfectly displeased with the sinner. The sinner hates God, disobeys God, is ungrateful to God for all His favors, would kill God if he could. He is dead in trespasses and sins. (Eph.2:1) â€śThe thoughts and intents of his heart are only evil continually.â€ť (Gen.6:5) He is the slave of sin (John 8:34), the servant of the devil, (Eph.2:2).
Spurgeon; Repentance is the inseparable companion of faith. All the while that we walk by faith and not by sight, the fear of repentance glitters in the eye of faith. That is not true repentance which does not come of faith in Jesus; and that is not true faith in Jesus which is not tinctured with repentance. Faith and repentance, like the Siamese twins, are vitally joined together. Faith and repentance are but two spokes in the same wheel, two handles of the same plow. Repentance has been well described as a heart broken for sin and from sin, and it may equally well be spoken of as turning and returning. It is a change of mind of the most thorough and radical sort, and it is attended with sorrow for the past and a resolve of amendment in the future. Repentance of sin and faith in divine pardon are the ways and woof of the fabric of real conversion.
Bro John UK; A worthwhile read that you will enjoy if you havenâ€™t read already before!
Him God has exalted to His right hand to be Prince and Savior, to give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins. And we are His witnesses to these things, and so also is the Holy Spirit whom God has given to those who obey Him.â€ť Acts 5:31-32
Bro; Unprofitable Servant; Itâ€™s liken to one saying the Word Trinity isnâ€™t found in the Bible, but as you were stating the concept is ever so taught from scriptures.
Double G; The Bible clearly teaches one, that salvation is of the Lord alone; Jonah 2:9.
True saving faith is always accompanied by repentance from your sins. You canâ€™t say that you believe in God & Jesus Christ if you continue in all of your sins. Thatâ€™s why salvation has to start & end with God, if nâ€™t Heaven has none then. For their is none who are righteous or will ever be righteous, without the imputed righteousness of Christ, that is a saving Gift from Christ Alone.
Jesus commanded us to Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand; Mat 4:17!
Without Christ, their is no saving faith, as a gift nor of repentance, or love, or obedience without the grace of God. Working those things into ones heart & life. As Jesus says, apart from me you can do nothing; Jhn 15:5.
Amen; John UK, as some say that isnâ€™t fair, but if one truly wants fairness, that would be a bad thing for us all, as we all are worthy to be under His wrath in falling short of His sinless perfection!
Praise God that He saves many & nâ€™t any!, as no one knows who the elect are outside of the Eternal Godhead!
Eph 1:3-6 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, 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, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.
God clearly commands all men to repent, as that isnâ€™t a mere suggestion for one; Acts 17:30. As saving repentance is a gift from Up Above Alone, than the fallen sinner doesnâ€™t posses of their own-self, Acts 11:18, Tim 2:25, Phil 1:29, Ezk 36:26:27.
In order to believe how utterly dependent the fallen sinner who becomes regenerate is utterly dependent on the Eternal Godhead; Jhn 1:12-13!
Steven Anderson has an issue with the Bible, by his twisting of it. Out of context, as he tries to spin verses like Jonah 3:10, fit into his bad theology.
LK 24:47 and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
Mat 3:1-2 In those days John the Baptist came preaching in the wilderness of Judea, and saying, â€śRepent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!â€ť
Saving repentance leads to a change of affections loathing sin that was once beloved, as ones hope is in the imputed righteousness of Christ Alone, as none are seeking or righteousness outside of Christ Alone amen.
Your Roman Road conversion Jim, is of utter fiction!
Ronald Regan; I've noticed that everyone who is for abortion has already been born.
More Black babies are murdered in the womb, than being born alive in NYC, how wicked & how sad at the same time!
Spurgeon; Another proof of the conquest of a soul for Christ will be found in a real change of life. If the man does not live differently from what he did before, both at home and abroad, his repentance needs repented of, and his conversion is a fiction.
Col 3:1-3 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.
Hopefully some Born Again Christians, who know how to share & the defend the faith will show up regularly to this location, & proclaim, truth. That their is no King but Christ Alone amen!
State Rep.Brain Sims; Saying in the video that the Planned Parenthood does great amount of work for civil rights, what a lie that is. Taking the life of a baby away,at the rate of 332,757 babies murder by Planned Parenthood annually in 2017.
& that is protecting & promoting life & Civil rights, what twisted lies. & the truth of scriptures coming into play of a depraved heart & mind, that this man has! To state that one is being intolerant & unloving to be out front of Planned Parenthood, is lol. When his fallen Worldview canâ€™t even account for right & wrong. How intolerant & judgemental of him to impose his judgemental opinions on another, shame on him!!
From your posting Jim; Hypocrites;Michael Cappetta and Ben Collins wrote: Rashad Robinson, president of Color of Change, which advocates for civil rights, said Facebookâ€™s latest bans were not about alleged anti-conservative bias, which he said does not exist.
â€śThese people are white supremacists who spread dangerous and untrue conspiracies that incite violence against Black communities, and have done so without consequence for years,â€ť Robinson said on Twitter.
As the number 1 killer in Black & Hispanic Minority neighborhoods, is death by Abortion! & the facts support that, ever so sadly!!
Thatâ€™s Raciest & purely wicked, as itâ€™s no coincidence, that Planned Parenthood where purposely established in minority neighborhoods!!!
Some good info to equip oneself about who & how the CAIR group operates with. Benâ€™t deceived by many with in the media who want to play Spinderella, by trying so hard to portray this Hamas founded group in a positive prospective!
The real Kamala Harris; Harris holds 100 percent pro-abortion ratings with Planned Parenthood and NARAL, and as the former Attorney General of California she played a key role in defending the abortion giant over its baby-parts scandal and instead targeting the Center for Medical Progressâ€™ pro-life investigators who exposed it.
As a Senate candidate, she bragged about forcing religiously-owned companies and pro-life pregnancy centers to violate their consciences. Most recently, she joined every other Democrat senator running for president in voting against legislation that would have required abortionists to transfer living newborns to hospitals after failed abortions. In follow-up comments to the Daily Caller, Harris refused to say whether abortion is ever immoral, declaring simply that â€śitâ€™s up to a woman to make that decision, and I will always stand by that.â€ť
Regardless of how much one wants to repate too themselves their is no absolute truths, they are just double minded & self-deceived.
Some good Examples here; @KamalaHarris on gun control: â€śWe cannot tolerate a society and live in a country with any level of pride when our babies are being slaughtered." Also Kamala Harris: Votes against a bill to protect babies born ALIVE during an abortion attempt on their life
There is a long tradition of prominent Democrats, such as former President Barack Obama, speaking similarly about a moral imperative to take sweeping government action against gun violence in the name of childrenâ€™s lives, while at the same time supporting violence against children in the form of abortion.
Sadly the most dangerous place for a minority to be in, is inside of the mother Womb. Nâ€™t taking away from life taken away by gang violence. But the number 1 killer in minority neighborhoods is death by Abortion. In which is no accident either as the Murder Mills have been purposely set up in minority neighborhoods, as the roots & track record exposes, the Raciest foundations of Planned Parenthood!
Utterly wicked Jim & any supportter weither it be Democratic or Republican, or any other in between!
Real men stand up for life, for Fatherhood & declaring to one, donâ€™t be self-deceived. One who is outside of Christ needs a new relationship with Him, nâ€™t as Foe but as Friend!
Jim; Remember all sin goes up Vertically First before it affects the Horizontal aspect. You have far greater need of worry than a Tax Return!
Heb 9:27 And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment,
Jhn 3:18-20 â€śHe who believes in Him isnâ€™t condemned; but he who doesnâ€™t believe is condemned already, because he hasnâ€™t believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and doesnâ€™t come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.
