    The purpose and point of this thread is to discuss
    and to learn and to teach the commandments of Jesus Christ
    to those who want to read and participate. I will go through the new testament and take them one by one.


    We will start with this.

    John, Chapter 14, 15: If ye love me, keep my commandments.

    John, Chapter 14, 21: He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

    John, Chapter 15, 10: If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.

    If you do not keep the commandments of Jesus Christ,
    you do not love, Jesus Christ.

    Ah .... methinks you have been here before.

    Yes or no? :flower:

    It's really an elementary question.

    We don't just preach here on the internet.
    We also go to the baptists churches.
    And talk to people there face to face about
    the exact same things we preach here.

    We walk our talk.

    If you will note the context of each text you plucked them out of you will see three contextual facts:

    1. He is addressing believers not the lost
    2. Obedience is the consequence not the cause of salvation
    3. Love is evidential that obtains temperal blessings of fellowswhip


    If you examine the overall Biblical context these five facts are also indisputable:

    1. We do not obtain or sustain justification by obedience - Rom. 4:1-12
    2. No such thing as sinless perfection or living above sin - 1 Jn. 1:8-10
    3. Disobedience by true children of God does not lose salvation but does lose future rewards, personal assurance, joy, fellowship, blessings - 1 Cor. 3:11-15
    4. Repudiation of Christ manifests false professors - 1 Jn. 2:19
    5. Absolute absence of good works manifests false professors and thus a "dead" faith - James 2

    The ONLY way anyone, can abide in the love of Jesus Christ, is to keep the Commandments of Jesus Christ, as Jesus Christ kept the commandments of God, His Father.

    True or false?

    Posting scriptures from the bible, such as the commandments of Jesus Christ on every Christian forum on the internet is not spamming. It is preaching the gospel.

    Mark, Chapter 16, 15: And he said unto them,
    Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

    Jesus is talking about the manifestation of the Holy Ghost, in fact these 3 Chapters are Jesus exhortation to his apostles before his being crucified, he refers much to the Holy Spirit when he is talking to the apostles.

    mainly the verses you have posted are stressing the importance of obedience if we are to have communion and fellowship with the Holy Spirit, which thus will result in power for the Gospel. (Acts 1:8)

    The Gospel of Jesus Christ is not contained in verses that you posted.

    The Gospel of Jesus Christ is to repent of your sin and turn to him by faith for salvation.

    Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace are ye saved through faith, and not of yourselves, it is the gift of God, not of works lest any man should boast.

    It says if you keep his commandments you will abide in his love, so i guess by logic if you don't keep his commandments than you are not abiding in his love.

    So I would say true.

    The gospel of Jesus Christ is his commandments.

    When you repent you are to what?

    OBEY HIS COMMANDMENTS

    Spamming is right. Right along with his "seven spirits" thread

    Every first post is the same on each board, every second post is the same on each board, every third post the same.....


    I'd say the guy should be shown the door

    None. I don't think anyone said anything about evil done to anyone.

    But the stringing of our posts has a very familiar ring to it.

    First, insist that everybody play by your set of rules for who can come to "your" thread. The pepper everybody with questions, be as ambiguous as you can with answers, all the while insisting that this is preaching the gospel or teaching truth - all of which nobody else seems to have a grasp of.

    Then the question of "what evil have I done to you?"
    just tops it off

    I've seen enough. Thanks
