    “None are righteous”

    Luke 1:6
    Both of them were righteous in the sight of God, observing all the Lord’s commands and decrees blamelessly.

    Those are just 2 who are blameless and righteous, there are more, should I keep going?

    The “none are righteous” teaching is a distortion of Paul quoting the old testament

    Heb 12:14
    Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be HOLY; without holiness no one will see the Lord

    Proverbs 10:16
    The wages of the RIGHTEOUS is LIFE but the earnings of the wicked are sin and death.

    Proverbs 10:29
    The way of the LORD is a refuge for the BLAMELESS, but it is the ruin of those who do evil

    Proverbs 15:9
    The Lord DETESTS the way of the wicked, but He LOVES those who pursue RIGHTEOUSNESS

    God is perfectly just, if ALL sins were equal God would not have singled out 10 specific sins and COMMANDED us to NEVER commit them and Gods word would not tell us to be righteous, innocent, perfect, blameless, godly and holy.

    All sin is not equal, there is sin that brings death and sin that does not bring death (1 John 5:16). Jesus Himself also said there is such a thing as “greater” sin. (John 19:11)

    1 John 5:15-16
    If you see any brother or sister commit a sin that does not lead to death, you should pray and God will give them life. I refer to those whose sin does not lead to death. There is a sin that leads to death. I am not saying that you should pray about that. All wrongdoing is sin, and there is sin that does not lead to death.

    John 19:1
    “…..Therefore the one who handed me over to you is guilty of a greater sin.”

    God Bless

    “I say we all sin and fall short of the glory of God…..”

    Absolutely. The problem you are having is that you are confusing being upright, innocent, perfect, blameless, righteous, godly or holy with being SINLESS.

    This is a stumbling block for you because you have also been taught that ALL sins are the same in God’s eyes (which is not biblical) and that “none are righteous no not one” which is also not biblical.

    Luke 1:6
    BOTH OF THEM WERE RIGHTEOUS IN THE SIGHT OF GOD, OBSERVING ALL THE LORD’S COMMANDS AND DECREES BLAMELESSLY.

    Luke 2:25
    Now there was a man in Jerusalem called Simeon, who was RIGHTEOUS and devout.

    Matt 5:48
    BE PERFECT, therefore, even as your heavenly Father is perfect.

    Matt 5:20
    For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you certainly WILL NOT ENTER THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.

    Eph 4:23-24
    You were taught, with regard to your FORMER way of life, to PUT OFF your old self, which is being CORRUPTED by its deceitful desires; to be MADE NEW in the attitude of your minds; and to PUT ON the new self, created to be LIKE GOD in true RIGHTEOUSNESS and HOLINESS.

    “Jesus was the one who loved the ones who loved him”

    Absolutely, the question is……..is your definition of “love” the same as Jesus definition of “love”? Is your definition of making Jesus your Lord the same as Jesus definition in the Bible? Lets see what Jesus Himself tells us in the Bible,

    1 John 5:3
    In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands and his commandments are not burdensome

    2 John 1:6
    And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands……

    John 14:15
    If you love me, keep my commands

    John 15:14
    You are my friends if you do what I command

    John 14:23
    Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.

    Matt 7:21
    Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, BUT ONLY the one who DOES the will of my Father who is in heaven

    Psalm 18:20-25
    The Lord has dealt with me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands He has rewarded me. For I have KEPT the ways of the Lord; I am not guilty of turning from my God. All His laws are before me; I have not turned away from His decrees. I have been blameless before Him and have KEPT MYSELF FROM SIN. The Lord has rewarded me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in His sight. To the faithful you show yourself faithful, to the blameless you show yourself blameless,

    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.

    God does not “play on word usage” I am sincerely sorry If you cannot accept the whole counsel of God but that really is between you and God.

    if what you believe is biblically sound then nothing in scripture should cause you distress, nothing in scripture should contradict what you believe. That is the whole counsel of God.

    If your doctrines are loosely bound together by isolated verses that are contradicted by other verses then your doctrines are not “biblical” because God cannot contradict himself.

    If you find yourself seeking verses to cancel out verses so that you can cling to man made traditions then you are playing with word usage and pitting God against .Himself.

    I pray you will consider the whole counsel of God and make what you believe fit scripture instead of trying to make scripture fit what you
    believe.

    “If you want to enter life, keep the commandments”
    -Jesus

    You are confusing being sinless (never having sinned) with turning from sin and living the rest of your life IN Christ.

    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 3:7
    Dear children, do not let anyone lead you astray. The one who DOES what is right is RIGHTEOUS, just as He is righteous.

    1 John 3:8
    The one who DOES what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s
    work

    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

    I pray you read the Bible and discover the truth, you can become a new creation in Christ. Gods grace is more powerful than any temptation (1 Cor 10:13) resist the Devil and he will flee from you. He is a liar and wants you comfortable in your sins so that you will perish.

    God Bless

    Romans 8:13 For IF you are living according to the flesh, you must die; but IF by the Spirit you are putting to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.

    You cite Galatians 2:16 and ignore the following,

    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.

    Gal 6:7-8
    Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap DESTRUCTION; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap ETERNAL LIFE.

    You cite Titus 3:5 and ignore the following

    Titus 1:1
    Paul, a servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ to further the faith of God’s elect and their knowledge of the truth that leads to GODLINESS

    Titus 2:11-14
    For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people.  It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age,  while we wait for the blessed hope-…”

    So yes I agree, you should stop isolating verses to prove man made doctrines and consider the WHOLE counsel of God.

    “If you want to enter life, keep the commandments”

    -Jesus

    @ CaptMickeyd

    ‘Try preaching the “Whole counsel of God.”’

    Yes why don’t you? For each of the verses you cite I will show how you cherry pick verses ignoring what is said before and after in order to prove your false man made doctrines.

    You cite

    Ephesians 2:8-9 but ignore the following,

    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 therefore do not be partners with them

    You cite

    Romans 4:2 and ignore the following,

    Rom 2:6 -8
    GOD WILL REPAY EACH PERSON ACCORDING TO WHAT THEY HAVE DONE. TO THOSE WHO BY PERSISTENCE IN DOING GOOD SEEK GLORY, HONOR AND IMMORTALITY, HE WILL GIVE ETERNAL LIFE.

    Rom 2:13
    For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God’s sight, but it is those who obey the law who will be declared righteous

    Rom 6:16
    Do you not know that if you yield yourselves to anyone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience which leads to righteousness?

    Rom 6:22 But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the benefit you reap LEADS TO HOLINESS, and the result is ETERNAL LIFE.

    2 Peter 2:20
    If they have escaped the corruption of the world by KNOWING our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ but are AGAIN ENTANGLED in it and are overcome, they are WORSE OFF at the end than they were at the beginning

    Heb 6:4-6
    It is IMPOSSIBLE for those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the Heavenly gift, who have SHARED IN THE HOLY SPIRIT, and who have FALLEN AWAY, to be brought back to repentance. To their loss they are crucifying the Son of God all over again and subjecting Him to public disgrace.

  • [1] January 26, 2015 at 5:47pm

    “You can’t truly know God, or know Jesus, and just stop believing in him, or you never truly knew him.”

    Actually the Bible says we can know Jesus and share in the Holy Spirit and fall away. Satan himself knew God and fell away.

    2 Peter 2:4-10
    For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but CAST THEM INTO HELL and committed them to pits of darkness, reserved for judgment; and did not spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah, a preacher of righteousness, with seven others, when He brought a flood upon the world of the ungodly; and if He condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to destruction by reducing them to ashes, having made them an example to THOSE WHO WOULD LIVE UNGODLY LIVES THEREAFTER; and if He rescued righteous Lot, oppressed by the sensual conduct of unprincipled men (for by what he saw and heard that righteous man, while living among them, felt his righteous soul tormented day after day by their lawless deeds), then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from temptation, and TO KEEP THE UNRIGHTEOUS UNDER PUNISHMENT FOR THE DAY OF JUDGMENT, and especially those who indulge the flesh in its corrupt desires and despise authority.

    2 Peter 2:20
    If they have escaped the corruption of the world by KNOWING our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ but are AGAIN ENTANGLED in it and are overcome, they are WORSE OFF at the end than they were at the beginning

    There are over 30,000 different Protestant faiths with different doctrines and there is a distinct (and eternal) difference between claiming Jesus as Lord and making Jesus your Lord (obeying all of Gods commands)

    The Bible says that anyone who says I know him and continues to sin is a liar and the truth is not in him.

    What did your church teach was necessary to “make Jesus your Lord” and did they teach that having Jesus as Lord was “important” or “essential” for salvation?

    Many churches “emphasize” having Christ as Lord but they also teach that it’s not “required” for salvation.

  • [4] January 26, 2015 at 4:25pm

    Of what profit is turning to a “Christianity” that teaches the false doctrines of justification by faith alone without obeying God and once saved always saved? They can learn that from Beyonce, Justin Beiber and all of the other musicians who claim to be born again and “saved”.

  • [10] January 26, 2015 at 4:20pm

    Free will precludes God from “making” us into something we sin-cerely do not want to be.

    John Calvins doctrine of “irresistible grace” is not biblical. We must cooperate with Gods grace daily if we want to grow in holiness for without holiness (Hebrews 12:14) no one will see God.

    Of course he became an atheist. His only understanding of God and Christianity was the false Evangelical “carnal christian” doctrine which teaches that you can claim Jesus Christ as Savior without making him Lord of your life. The carnal christian doctrine teaches that salvation is by faith alone and once you claim Christ as your Savior making Him Lord of your life is optional.

    The carnal christian doctrine has grown very popular in America becuase the idea that we can disobey God and still go to heaven is very appealing to our sinful nature (just as it was to Adam and Eve)

    The carnal christian doctrine also teaches that once you claim Christ as your Savior all of your future sins are forgiven and no matter what you do (even turn and fall from grace) God MUST admit you into heaven.

    The carnal christian doctrine is leading many sin-cere people to turn from God and even completely leave the faith.

    You are bearing false witness regarding the word of God. I prayerfully encourage you to read my reply to you above and to study scripture. Don’t take for granted what people tell you and/or what you read in tracts and on websites, trust in the word of God not man made teachings.

    @WorkPlayPayTaxes

    You wrote,

    “The word ‘deed’ shows up only twice in the Holy Bible. And it doesn’t refer to “good deeds of people.” 

    You should add “ReadScripture” to your name. You are either ignorant of scripture or intentionally bearing false witness in order to spread a false Gospel.

    The word deeds occurs 408 times in the Bible.

    The Greek word for “deeds” or “works” is ERGON and occurs 174 times in the New Testament (almost exclusively by Jesus in Matt,Mark,Luke and John)

    ERGON: work

    Original Word: ἔργον, ου, τό
    Part of Speech: Noun, Neuter
    Transliteration: ergon
    Phonetic Spelling: (er’-gon)
    Short Definition: work, labor, action, deed
    Definition: work, task, employment; a deed, action; that which is wrought or made, a work.

    The Hebrew or Aramaic word for “deeds” or “works” is MASSEH and occurs 234 times in the Old Testament.

    MASSEH: a deed, work

    Original Word: מַעֲשֶׂה
    Part of Speech: Noun Masculine
    Transliteration: maaseh
    Phonetic Spelling: (mah-as-eh’)
    Short Definition: work, deed

    http://biblehub.com/greek/strongs_2041.html

    James 2:24
    You see that a man is made righteous by what he does (ERGON) and not by faith alone

    I pray you stop spreading false information.

    Revelation 14:12 - Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus

    Justification is by faith + obedience

    James 2:24
    You see a man is justified by what he does and NOT by faith alone

    p.s. Do you use the ORIGINAL 1611 KJV bible or the modern/secular version that has 7 books removed? You do know that those 7 books were in Jesus Bible (the Septuagint) the Codex, the Latin Vulgate, the Geneva Bible, the Guttenberg Bible and EVERY single Bible published priormto 1666?

    p.s.s The NWT is not an accurate rendering.

    There is only ONE name that is necessary to pronounce correctly, there is only ONE name that brings salvation and there is only ONE King and his name is not James it is JESUS CHRIST.

    God Bless

  • [1] January 26, 2015 at 11:10am

    You seem to be missing the point fang.
    Its not about pronunciation.

    Charles Taze Russell adopted a catholic monks rendering of YHWH and ADONAI in the 13th century.

    I am simply asking why?

    How would I pronounce Gods name? Jesus Christ.

    Jesus said “before Abraham was born I AM”

    You deny that Jesus Christ is God incarnate yes/no?
