Further, how DARE you correct a MAN, and a Senior Pastor. You would be wise to watch yourself in these forums, since you are still unsaved trash.

I will pray for your soul.

I am... so deeply sorry, I swear on my soul I am no gypsy scum.

But thank you, for your prayer, even after what I've done, I apologize from the bottom of my heart.

I think this site will be a perfect companion as I get more familiar with learning prophecies. My friend is right! It’s not enough that we believe in short and simple things we hear

Absolutely beautiful.

This has only confirmed and strengthened my beliefs that a life with GOD isn't a life worth living!

Hi, Mary!

Why not start an introduction thread of your own and tell us about yourself, your church, and how you came to find Jesus?

Yours in Him,

Pastor Ed

Lightbulb I am new. Glory unto the Lord and not to the prideful.

Hi Bob and other's. My name is Johnathan. I do not like to be called John as I have not yet earned the right to be called this Godly name.

I fear God. I have always strived to be a Christian but it is only recently that I have come to see Our Lord in all of his mighty glory. To Fear God was not taught in my church, (which is Grace Baptist in Parkersburg, WV under the pastorship of William P. Oldaker) so I am hear to better understand God's true purpose for me. I used to think it was enough to Praise Him but the punishments God has delivered unto me recently have been a message received loud and clear. I have been a weak Christian. I am repentant and fearful.

I have prayed for forgiveness and thus have been lead here. I don't know why I have been punished but I believe I have been lead here not just to grown as a Christian but for a specific purpose. While the old me would have prayed and been repentant for my sins, I know now I must do more. Please help me find out what that is. I have been reading this message board thoroughly after God had me stumble upon it. I was researching sinful acts of the flesh such as body piercings and tattoos when I found you. I want to know how other Christians are handling this plight. I cannot find a wife when all of the whores are covered in this filth. May God forgive my weakness, it is not in His name.

To make myself the center of this post would be ungodly, therefore I will let more information about me be made available organically. While I am unworthy of God, I am worthy of His word, which speaks to me the loudest is as follows: "For if we go on sinning deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful expectation of judgment, and a fury of fire that will consume the adversaries. Anyone who has set aside the law of Moses dies without mercy on the evidence of two or three witnesses. How much worse punishment, do you think, will be deserved by the one who has spurned the Son of God, and has profaned the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and has outraged the Spirit of grace? For we know him who said, “Vengeance is mine; I will repay.” And again, “The Lord will judge his people.” ..." Hebrews 10:21-36

This is wonderful news, but I'm not entirely convinced. It would be more convincing if you went to the Introduction forum and introduced yourself there.

Hello,

I'd like to put this out there, and at the end I'd appreciate it if anyone could remember my question. "Does regeneration precede faith?"

And I am just curious... are you saying that man has autonomous free will? I personally do not believe that it is in the ability of man to believe or reject the gospel freely (in the libertarian sense). Man has no libertarian free will to choose any redemptive good, since his affections are entirely in bondage to sin (until Christ sets him free) and cannot choose otherwise. Scripture defines freedom, not as libertarians do, but as the freedom from the bondage to sin, since we are slaves of sin until the Son sets us free (John 8; Rom 6). Biblical freedom is the freedom to do what is pleasing to God (John 8:34-36; Rom 6:15-23; 2 Cor 3:17) and this freedom from sin is granted in the redemptive work of Christ. Yet the Scripture nowhere says anything about the freedom to choose either contrary or apart from our desires. We either desire and love Christ or we despise him, and if we choose Him, this is the result of sovereign grace giving us a heart of flesh, not a result of nature itself (John 1:13; Rom 9:16).

Man is indeed responsible for the choices he makes, yet deny that the Bible teaches that man has a free will since it is no where taught in the pages of Scripture. The Bible teaches, rather, that God ordains all things that come to pass (Eph 1:11) and it also teaches that man is culpable for his choices (Ezek 18:20, Matt 12:37, John 9:41). Since the Scripture is our ultimate authority and highest presuppsosition, the multitude of clear scriptural declarations on this matter outweigh all unaided human logic.

I don't mean to overly emphasize some point you had not meant, but I am only attempting to get a feel about what everyone here believes, that is, whether there are divisive issues that people side apart from or against. Now back to the question?

No. If the Bible says it, we believe it, that settles it.

My apology Mary. When I walked away from the computer after making that post I had that thought that I could be misconstrued of having picked a fight. I'm not here to argue, school or convert people over to my system of belief. Actually, I'm looking for a little relief, a place to kick back and have some laughs after debating elsewhere on the internet. I like what you say, I am here to join the chorus in praising Jesus!

God bless, Mary.
