    Amen! 'Here is a trustworthy saying, that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners- of whom I am the worst' (1 Tim. 1:15).

    "It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners" (Mark 2:17).

    Oh looky, now I have Craigbythesea just all of a sudden randomly going to my posts everywhere and giving them 'dumbs'. I cannot recall if I've ever had a conversation with the guy.

    He gave me a 'dumb' for my response in the other thread, too. So I guess he, too, believes God saves good people. FYI, if they are good in God's sight, they were already saved to begin with. So to save the saved is redundant. To save those with pure hearts is useless.

    I don't mind getting a dumb here and there specifically if they bring an argument as to why. This isn't that. It's simply randomly finding my posts and doing it. I take it that he is in disagreement with the video and preacher in it and what is said as well. God does save bad people, that is the only crop out there, though some think they are pretty good.

    They're not.

    How can a person think they are pretty good? An encounter with Christ, a true encounter will dispel that false notion. :)

    People are not as good as they think they are, Brother. You hear someone say that another person is a good person. I understand what they mean, but in accordance to the bible, they are not good, and if they're an unconverted person, they're not good, but evil to the core. I once used Jeremiah 17:9 and was confronted with the question 'You don't even know your own heart?' I'd say no one truly knows their heart. What I do know is that He saved me and gave me a new heart and Spirit, but to truly know my heart is left up to Him. The more I know myself in light of what I read in the bible, the more I loathe myself.

    Welp, time to get dressed and go to church. May He bless you Brother IT and everyone on here with a wonderful service.

    Here is another one from Romans... Is there any good people here?... Brother Glen

    Romans 5:6 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.

    5:7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.

    5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

    I just discovered him by listening to Todd Friel's radio program Wretched Radio. He's a great preacher!

    Not a pretty picture but we don't want to leave it there!

    I Corinthians 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

    6:10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

    6:11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God... AMEN!
    ... Brother Glen
