    Jesus is BOTH fully Human fully God. Hypostatic union.

    Jesus experienced fear in the garden and was tempted in the desert (God does not experience fear and God cannot be tempted)

    Jesus often referred to Himself as “the son of man” seems counterintuitive right? Why does a man who claims to be “the Son of God” keep referring to Himself as “the son of man”? That’s because His divine nature is speaking.

    Jesus, fully human, fully man, 2 natures, one human one divine. Become a Catholic, the depth of the faith and the depth of understanding of the scriptures is unparalleled.

    Don’t you get tired of “hard verses” and “hard teachings” and qestions that can’t be answered? Join the church that Jesus Christ established, become a Catholic.

    God Bless

    @pastorsteve

    “-no, it is not possible for such a person to truly be a Christian. Not a “Murdering Christian” a “Pedophile Christian” etc etc etc”

    Amen brother,

    1 John 2:3
    We know that we have come to know Him IF we KEEP HIS COMMANDS

    Many people believe that salvation is by faith alone apart from obedience to Gods word but you are right on target Pastor Steve, scripture is VERY clear,

    James 2:24
    You see that a person IS MADE RIGHTEOUS BY WHAT THEY DO and NOT by FAITH ALONE.

    Gal 5:19-21
    The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

    Eph 5:5-7
    For of this you can be sure, no immoral, impure or greedy person—such a person is an idolater—HAS ANY INERITANCE IN THE KINGDOM OF CHRIST AND OF GOD. Let no one DECEIVE you with empty words, for because of such things God’s wrath comes on those who are DISOBEDIENT

    1 John 3:6
    NO ONE WHO LIVES IN HIM KEEPS ON SINNING. NO ONE WHO CONTINUES TO SIN HAS EITHER SEEN HIM OR KNOWN HIM.

    1 John 3:9
    NO ONE who is BORN OF GOD will CONTINUE TO SIN, because God’s seed remains in them; they CANNOT go on sinning, because they have been born of God

    God Bless

    P.S.

    Not a single writing in the Bible (not even in the New Testament) claims to be inspired by God or the word of God and the Bible does not list which writings belong in the Bible which s why a council of Catholic Bishops delared which writings were truly inspired in 400AD. So your (cut and pasted) argument that the those books do not claim to be inspired is true for the entire Bible incliding the New Testament and still does not answer the question, if those books are not inspired why were they included in EVERY SINGLE BIBBLE including the KJV until 1666?

    Lastly not a sngle writing in the New Testament quotes the New Testament so according to your principles used to remove the Apocrypha you should also remove EVERY New Testament book which does not claim to be inspired and/or is not quoted from in the NT. Hint the NT wasnt written yet so there is no way the Apostles could have quoted from it or referred to it. Which makes you arguments ludicris.

    Read the documented history of Christianity and the Bible not just tracts that support your beliefs. The truth will set you free. Seek the truth and you will find it.

    Gods grace be upon you.

    CAVEAT:

    @jimbo et al,

    You ask me where in the Apocrhrypha it teaches that sodomy is approved of. You seem to have assumed that I am arguing in favor of homosexuality which I am not. The Bible is clear that both sex and marriage are only acceptable between one man and one woman.

    I am simply pointing out that you and scarebear83 started your posts by criticizing the Methodist church and this Pastor for not following the Bible and claimed that the churches of Christ follow do follow the Bible when in fact (truth) scarebear83 admits that some of your churches “teach error”.

    So it is hypocritical to claim that your church which “teaches error” and does not follow the Bible in all things and insread follows the false teachings of the Pastor or elders is THE TRUE church of Christ but this other church and Pastor which does the same thing is a false church/Pastor, make sense?

    Also if you agree that removing the 7 books of the “Apocrypha” from the Bible was the right thing to do where in the Bible does it say that anyone can remove anything from the Bible? Those books were in EVERY Bible including the KJV until 1666 when Protestants made the decision to remove them.

    You only “follow the Bible” after removing the parts you dont like and even then you admit to still teaching error.

    God Bless

  • July 13, 2014 at 1:20pm

    6. You admit that you have no knowledge regarding Saint Jeromes translation of the Bible into Latin (the Vulgate) or the history of the Bible or who strted the “churches of Christ” when your church was started (what year) or why the churches of Christ were started yet at the same time you are convinced that this church that you know very little abo follows the Bible which you know even less about.

    7. So both you and Jimbo are in here making claims that dont stand up to biblical or historical scrutiny and at the same time accusing this church and this Pastor of the same thing.

    I would just encourage both of you to study the actual history of Christianity as written by the early church martyrs (Cyprian, Polycarp, Clement, Ignatius, Irenaeus, Augustine etc) and the actual history of the Bible AND the actual history of your “undenomination” (who started it and when and why). If/when you have done this your eyes will be open to the facts (the truth)

    The ONLY reason to not learn the facts (the truth) is if you are afraid that you will discover that your church, the churches of Christ, is not “His church” which will leave you with only 2 options,

    1. Admit that a church can teach error and not according to the Bible and still be “His” (Jesus) church ( which utterly collapses you and Jimbos original criticisms and claims made at the beginning of this blog)

    or

    2. Leave the “churches of Christ” and enter Jesus church.

    God Bless

    @scarebear83

    Again thank you for being honest. Your arguments however are circular and self defeating. You have actually made my point precisely.

    You wrote the following,

    “there are some congregations that teach error”

    AND

    “we call ourselves the church of Christ because it’s His.”

    1. Jesus (God) is perfect and without error so any “church” that teaches error cannot be “His church”

    2. You say that the Bible is the only creed that the churches of Christ follow but then in the same breath you say that not all churches of Christ follow the Bible and they teach error. So the logical question is, if they teach error and do not follow the Bible what exactly is it that makes them a church of Christ church?

    3. What makes a church that teaches error and does not follow the Bible “His church” or a “church of Christ”? If they are not following Jesus teachings in the Bible whose teachings are the following? (according to you they are following the teachings of their Pastor or elder)

    4. If a church is not following Jesus teachings in the Bible and instead following the false teachings of men how is that church a church of Christ?

    5. Both you and Jimbo began your posts by telling people that the Methodist church and this Pastor do not follow the Bible and therefore are not a true church and that the churches of Christ do follow the Bible and are Jesus true church but your own arguments prove you wrong.

    @scarebear83

    Thank you for sharing more about what you and some of the churches of Christ believe. You yourself admit that some churches of Christ allow divorce but some do not but then in the same breath you say that ALL churches of Christ follow the Bible but both statements contrdict eachother. If you read through your post carefully and imagine that someone else is explaining what their church believes you cant miss the obvious contradictions. I dont mean this in an uncharitable way I am just being very honest. The churches of Christ have different beliefs about what is and is not “biblical”, what is and is not acceptable to God and what is and is not essential for salvation. Which makes the churches of Christ just one more of 35,000 or more churches that claim to “follow the Bible” but your churches dont agree with eachother about what the Bible says. I do appreciate your being honest though.

    I still havent received any answers to my two questions above regarding the original KJV and the Latin Vulgate?

    Lastly do you know who started the churches of Christ, when the church was started and why it was started?

    Again, thank you for being very honest, may God Bless and keep you.

    When she left The View she said,

    “Seven in the Bible is the number of God’s completion. I’ve been here seven years, and my time at the view is complete”

    I really cant blame her though, she has been taught the health and wealth, name it and claim it, Jesus is your homeboy, nothing you do or dont do can keep you from going to heaven, repeat after me and you are “saved” gospel.

    I think she sincerely believes that God cares about all of her career/ fiancial choices and guides her to make the right career choices but when it comes to honoring the marriage covenant that her and her husband made with God or honoring the vow that her and her husband made to care of this child that they had brought into the world God is not concerned about that. She has been taught that she is a “saint” and all saints “deserve” health and prosperity.

    Is this why Jesus suffered and died for us? Will we be judged according to how wealthy and successful we were or how well we utilized the Bible to make savvy business decisions?

    I pray that they both of them have a change of heart and reconcile and raise this baby together but sadly today many Christians view both marriage and children as disposable items.

    @freemeagain

    “There is no way you can glorify God(our sole purpose) by permanently marking the skin He created, this would be putting yourself above Him.”

    What about Christians who pay to have surgery to sterilize themselves so that they can’t get pregnant or so they cant get a woman pregnant?

    God Bless

  • [1] July 7, 2014 at 1:39am

    Artificial conception (IVF, surrogacy), artificial CONTRA-ception, surgical sterilization and abortion, are all intrinsicly evil and Christians should have no part in them.

    Many hearts have grown cold and are blinded to the truth. Children are not objects for our amusement and entertainment, that we can create or kill according to our will.

    There are lots of orphans in the world waiting to be adopted, just imagine if every Christian couple in the world who cannot conceive naturally adopted just one orphaned child.

    “If babies had fur it would be illegal to kill them”

    @jglll

    Again thank you for sharing your perspective I can appreciate your desire to share your personal interpretations but once again It seems that we have wandered away from the original question that I asked regarding ( 1 Peter 3:21-22) which explicitly says that Baptism “saves”and it says “saves” not just once but twice.

    If you would rather not answer the question I respect that. Keep in mind for the better part of my life I believed what you believe so no need to keep repeating Protestant theology, I am very familiar with the beliefs and all of the “reasoning” behind those doctrines. :)

    Are there any other Protestants out there who can answer the question directly (not just tell me more of what you believe)?

    1 Peter 3:21-22
    “and this water symbolizes baptism that now saves you also—not the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of a clear conscience toward God. It saves you by the resurrection of Jesus Christ, who has gone into heaven and is at God’s right hand—with angels, authorities and powers in submission to him.”

    Are there any Protestants out there who can answer the question? Do you accept or reject the words in scripture (1 Peter 3:21-22) that say

    “Baptism now saves you” ?

  • July 5, 2014 at 7:15pm

    “but gets saved by the Apostle Paul”

    What do you mean when you say that Paul “saved” him?

    God Bless

    Also, can you give an exampe of this other species or group of people y

  • July 5, 2014 at 2:45pm

    @jglll

    LoL, if what you are saying is true and the “water” spoken of refers to the water in your mothers womb and not the water of Baptism then water should not be used for Baptism. What is this symbolic dry Baptism you speak of and where is it testified to in scripture?

    Lets focus on the verse below that explicitly refutes Martin Luthers invented doctrine that Baptism is merely “symbolic” ritual that has no effect on salvation.

    1 Peter 3:21-22

    Do you reject this verse? How about (Acts 2:38) ?

    How do you reconcile (not explain away) this verse with Martin Luthers doctrine that Baptism is symbolic ritual that is not even necessary?

    1 Peter 3:21-22
    “this water symbolizes BAPTISM which now SAVES you”

    P.S.

    Not sure why the blaze wraps my posts when I u7se the samsung tablet? grrrrrrrrrr ):(

  • July 5, 2014 at 3:28am

    @jglll

    You say that the water spoken of in (John 3:5) symbolizes our physical birth but scripture explicitly refutes this interpretation.

    1 Peter 3:21-22
    “and this water symbolizes baptism that now saves you also—not the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of a clear conscience toward God.e It saves you by the resurrection of Jesus Christ, who has gone into heaven and is at God’s right hand—with angels, authorities and powers in submission to him.”

    So according to the Bible the “water” Jesus is referring to does not symbolize ambiotic fluid it symbolizes the water of Baptism…..which saves us.

    Do you really believe that Jesus was saying that your mothers ambiotic fluid contributes to your salvation but the water of baptism does absolutely nothing?

    Thank you for your reply. Only took 2 of the kids to see the fireworks tonight as one our sons is special needs and does not like loud noises so the wife stayed home with him and our 2 infants.

    Thank you for your kind words.

    Gods blessing upon you and your family.

    You say that you beleive that the water spoken of is our first birth or our physical birth but scripture tells us in ( 1 Peter 3:21-22)

    1 Peter 3:21-22

  • July 4, 2014 at 6:07pm

    So I will close my comment with this final question,

    Who is more likely a Christian the one who loves God and neighbor but gets a tattoo which affects them on the outside or the one who claims Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and savior but uses drugs or surgery to make themself sterile so that God cannot create an eternal soul (a human life) through them?

    One alters the way the body looks and the other alters (and actually reverses) the way the body works and prevents God from creating more souls to spend eternity glorifying Him in Heaven.

    God Bless.

  • July 4, 2014 at 5:46pm

    Cont’d from above

    So while its true that nothing can ever make my children no longer be my biological offspspring they still have the free will to choose to go their own way and spend the rest of their lives without me.

    The same is true with God but scripture tells us the choice we make in this life (while still in the flesh) determines where we live our eternal lives and God loves us and allows us to make this choice of our own free will. God wills that ALL love Him back and choose eternal life with Him instead of sin which leads to eternal death (etenity without Him) but again the choice is ours to make while still in the flesh.

    Jesus is God and scripture tells us that Jesus is the source of eternal salvation for all who OBEY Him (Hebrews 5:9)

    2. With regard to being born again in (John 3:5) Jesus said that only those who are born of water and the spirit will enter the kingdom of heaven.

    The scriptures are also clear that those who are born again of water and spirit will no longer live their fomer life of sin sowing to satisfy the flesh but will live to satisfy the spirit (God) and those who sow to please the spirit will reap the spirit (God).

    Many today believe in “repeat after me” salvation apart from loving God and they deny batism is necessary to enter the kingdom of heaven. I do not share this belief.

    To be born again we must repent and be baptised and truly FOLLOW Jesus Christ.

    God Bless :) Happy 4th of July :)

  • July 4, 2014 at 5:06pm

    @jglll

    1. There is nothing my children could ever do to make me stop loving them but I cannot make them love me back. Are you tracking? If they choose to leave my home, my care and my protecti and live in live a life of sin and rebellion they have chosen to leave which is different than me casting them out.

    When we choose sin and rebellion over love of God we dont “lose” salvation we REJECT salvation. God gives us free wil and will never force us to be in His presence.

    So when we choose sin we are turning our backs on God and choosing to not be with Him and He loves us and will let us go wherever we choose. God does not cast us out we choose to not be with him.

    It seems you are conflating Gods love for us with our free will to choose sin and therfore reject that love.

    We cannot serve 2 masters.

    God Bless
