    “Jesus told him what he LACKED, following Messiah.”

    Those are your words not the words of Jesus found in scripture. Jesus told him,

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

    Following Jesus and obeying God are not 2 different things, they are one in the same. You cannot “follow” Jesus while rebelling against Gods commandments. To obey God IS to follow Jesus. It’s not possible to hate the Father and follow the Son, the two are one.

    Romans 8:6-8
    For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace, because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not SUBJECT ITSELF to THE LAW OF GOD, for it is not even able to do so, and those who are in the flesh CANNOT PLEASE GOD.

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

    Your definition of “following” God is not biblical. You believe that to “follow” God simply means accepting His Son Jesus as your Savior while ignoring His Fathers commandments.

    Because you live in rebellion teaching that obedience to God is not required you do not benefit from the indwelling of the Holy Spirit which leads to all truth. If you truly loved God you would love His commandments. You cannot hate Gods commandments and love Him. Repent and obey the Gospel, the kingdom of God is at hand.

    Jeremiah 23:13-22
    And among the prophets of Jerusalem. I have seen something horrible: They commit adultery and live a lie.
    They strengthen the hands of evildoers, so that not one of them turns from their wickedness.They are all like Sodom to me;
    the people of Jerusalem are like Gomorrah.” Therefore this is what the Lord Almighty says concerning the prophets:
    “I will make them eat bitter food and drink poisoned water, because from the prophets of Jerusalem ungodliness has spread throughout the land.”

    This is what the Lord Almighty says: “Do not listen to what the prophets are prophesying to you; they fill you with false hopes.
    They speak visions from their own minds, not from the mouth of the Lord. They keep saying to those who despise me, ‘The Lord says: You will have peace.’ And to all who follow the stubbornness of their hearts they say, ‘No harm will come to you.’ But which of them has stood in the council of the Lord to see or to hear his word? Who has listened and heard his word?

    See, the storm of the Lord will burst out in wrath, a whirlwind swirling down on the heads of the wicked.The anger of the Lord will not turn back until he fully accomplishes the purposes of his heart. In days to come you will understand it clearly.
    I did not send these prophets, yet they have run with their message; I did not speak to them, yet they have prophesied.
    But if they had stood in my council, they would have proclaimed my words to my people and would have turned them from their evil ways and from their evil deeds.

    Deut 18:20
    But a prophet who presumes to speak in my name anything I have not commanded, or a prophet who speaks in the name of other gods, is to be put to death.

    Excellent point christos, Al Qaeda and ISIS terrorists are committing genocide burning, beheading, torturing, raping and murdering Christian women and children all over the globe and you are here to report that the real (hidden) threat is the Catholic church building hospitals and universities. That’s rich.

    You’re right, silly me. What am I thinking?

    In the Bible when God tells us that Elizabeth conceived a “son” God actually meant to say that she conceived a “blob of tissue” and when God tells us that the “child” lept in Elizabeths womb God should have said the “blob of tissue” lept in her womb.

    God does not create a soul when (and because) WE conceive a child.

    We conceive a child when (and because) GOD creates a new soul.

    Throughout salvation history Gods people have always understood that conception is the result (not the cause) of God creating a human life. Which is why life begins at conception, conception cannot occur PRIOR to a soul existing, it is the result of the creation of a soul and not the cause…..

    You should check out the Documentary “Going Clear” about the Church of Scientology.

    Your 2 step interview process for approving people into the church is reminiscent of Sea Orgs audits…..

    “First comes the interview – lifestyle clearly a reason to deny membership…….Welcome yes, full membership no…… but possibly on the right track”

    Where is any of that in the Bible? If a person believes in Jesus Christ why do they need the approval of a Pastor or a board?

    Where in the Bible is John the Baptist screening people prior to Baptizing them or telling them to come back when they have a better lifestyle?

    Not questioning your logic but where is any example of that in the Bible?

    “I sought out a Bible believing church that would give it to me straight.”

    As a sinner, how did you determine what a “bible believing church” was and how did you know that they were giving it to you “straight”?

    “He also told me that while that was taking place, I would not be considered a member, babtized [sic] or be invited to serve in the church.”

    Where in the Bible is there any example of someone not being allowed Baptism until the Pastor thinks they are cleaned up enough for Jesus free gift of salvation?

    You believe that you are saved by faith in Jesus Christ and yet you let another sinner tell you when you could and could not be Baptized and enter the church? When this Pastor finally did allow you to be Baptized what was the reason he gave?

    @roseboomboom

    “If you want to talk about man made doctrines…….”

    Even if you could prove to me that every single catholic doctrine is false that would not make a single Protestant doctrine true and biblical.

    Using scripture alone (and remember in doing so you are using books that the catholic church declared to be scripture) prove to me that Sola Fide and/or Sola Scriptura and/or Once Saved Always Saved are biblical.

    Which Bible will you use? Will you use the original 1611 KJV? The original Geneva? The original Guttenberg? Or will you use one of the newer modern KJV bibles that have 7 books missing that were in Jesus Bible?

    “You can interpret Sola Fide however you like”

    That would make me a Protestant

    ….”I work out my salvation with fear and trembling which by no means excludes obedience to God…….. not under my own power but that of the Holy Spirit. I am grieved by any Church that teaches otherwise.”

    Go figure, your understanding of justification is not the Protestant understanding as taught by Martin Luther it’s actually the catholic churches definition almost verbatim.

  • [2] April 13, 2015 at 4:58pm

    I see that the Protestant church has brainwashed you into thinking that you can disobey God and still enter into eternal life.

    The Bible says that justification is NOT by faith alone.

    James 2:24
    You see that a man is justified by works and NOT by faith alone.

    When asked what a person must DO to have eternal life Jesus replied “Keep the Commandments”

    Matt 19:17
    If you want to enter . life keep the commandments

    Simple theology, not heard from Protestant pulpits…

    ……”This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world”

    -Jesus

    Martin Luther (Protestant reformation leader)

    NOT

    Martin Luther King (Civil Rights leader)

    If you read scripture with the same attention to detail as you read my post I highly encourage you to go back and reread scripture as you may have misunderstood some things….

    @athrillofhope

    “NO BAPTISM.”

    Where in the Bible is anyone ever denied Baptism for being a sinner? Where in the Bible does it say not to Baptize sinners?

    “why would any church in compliance with Christ NOT mandate KNOWN sinful lifestyle be given up before the church conducts a baptism”

    I agree, our church has a 2 year discernment process before someone can receive the Sacrament of Baptism and will not allow anyone to join the church who is actively living a sinful lifestyle.

    In the Bible Jesus says that anyone who divorces and marries another is an adulterer. Does your church Baptize adulterers? Does your church marry adulterers?

    If the answer to either of these questions is yes then you should ask yourself why your church caters to heterosexual sinners but discriminates against homosexual sinners.

    One possibility is that your church “has no clue who God is” …….just keeping it real

  • [1] April 13, 2015 at 4:19pm

    “lifestyle clearly is a reason to say we won’t baptize you”

    What if a guy admits that he’s been married and divorced do you ask him why he divorced his wife? The Bible says if it wasn’t for Pornea he is living in adultery.

    What if a guy admits that he is addicted to pornography?

    If ALL sins are the same in Gods eyes who in your church decides which lifestyle behaviors are ACCEPTABLE or UNACCEPTABLE in order to be Baptized?

    Is the person saved by stopping those behaviors or by faith in Jesus Christ?

    Is the person saved by Baptism or by faith in Jesus Christ?

    I was Evangelical for about 30 years of my life and my understanding of Sola Fide comes directly from the writings of the man who declared the doctrine….Martin Luther.

    If your understanding of Sola Fide is different than Martin Luther’s then logically your “understanding lacks understanding”

    Which raises a 3rd and possibly even bigger (ground shaking) question

    1. If a married gay couple presents themselves to a church and claim to be “born again” and wanting to be Baptized what is the answer?

    2. Does your church welcome them with open arms and Baptize them?

    3. Is abstaining from sin (being sinless) a requirement for Baptism?

    4. If your church would Baptize them would your church also marry them? If not why not?

    If your church affirms Sola Fide but will not Baptize and or Marry practicing homosexuals that is hypocrisy.

    Martin Luther’s doctrine of Sola Fide (salvation by FAITH ALONE without obeying God) also known as the “Carnal Christian” doctrine, teaches that NOTHING a person does (including adultery and fornication) has any effect on their relationship with God once they believe in Jesus Christ. This doctrine falsely teaches that a believers sins are “hidden from God” by Jesus.

    Sola Fide has created a major dilemma for Protestant churches when it comes to marriage and divorce. If salvation TRULY is by faith ALONE then Pastors cannot deny people the right to divorce and remarry. Pastors can SUGGEST not getting divorced but they cannot “burden the conscience” of anyone who is already “saved” by believing in Jesus Christ.

    The result of this manmade doctrine (over the past 500+ years) is that today very few if any Protestant churches consider Marriage and/or Baptism a sacrament (a sacred institution ordained by God)

    If Marriage and Baptism are not ordained by God , the how, when, where and why of both becomes insignificant – because these actions have no bearing on salvation.

    Which raises 2 questions (for Protestants and anyone else who believes in Sola Fide)

    1. If marriage is not a sacrament instituted by God then why can’t homosexuals marry?

    2. If Baptism does NOTHING and was not instituted by God then what is wrong with Baptizing children?

    “The Old Testament Law commanded the Israelite’s NOT TO ENGAGE in interracial marriages (Deut 7:3-4). ”

    Don’t Protestants believe that everything in the Old Testament is pre-resurrection (Old Covenant) and therefore not binding on “Christians”?

    At least you are aware that the catholic church canonized scripture. I’ve talked to people who say “I don’t believe that” as if it’s not a historical fact.
