Is salvation conditional on choosing to believe and follow Gods Word?
Hi all, I am not Arminian or Calvinist. I only believe and follow God's Word.
I was just wanting to hear your thoughts, as I have been reading some scriptures of late all through the OLD and NEW Testament that suggest that the fruit of our faith in God's Word determines if we have saving faith or not. These scriptures suggect that salvation and God's promises are condtional on both BELIEVING what God says and following...
OK, we went thru a whole thread, & still have no Scriptural authority for the office of pope, proving it's a man-made hoax. So, let's move on to the next RCC fraud, apostolic succession.
Can you RCs provide any Scriptural authority for apostolic succession ?
Why the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is not for Today
Understanding the Baptism with the Holy Spirit in Acts is difficult. But I found the keys are the Ethiopian Eunuch Acts 8:27 and the Samarians Acts 8:5. In essence, all had the Holy Spirit but only the Samarians had the Baptism with the Holy Spirit.
These received the gift of the Holy Spirit according to Peter in Acts 2:28 just as we do today. But the Samarians also received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit through the apostle’s hands which...
I had bought the black pacific pearls from a vendor in Nuka Hiva, French Polynesia for around $20. The pearls were great but the necklace rope itself was of poor quality and eventually broke. I bought a Catholic, "Gunmetal Military Rosary - WWI Service Combat Rosary" on EBay and had a local jeweler recreate the necklace. Turned out real nice! I am real pleased!

I thought I would put my perspective in one condensed corner. This so, my post are not all scattered and all may get the full picture of God's Song given me . Take what is put upon my heart as food for thought. My brothers will affirm what I say when God brings them forth -The Two Witnesses. They will come forth as this testimony grows to its fullness.
As always , I am not promoting a denomination, simply...
A comparatively recent development in Bible translation is the oral translation. The idea is that when a people group does not have a written language, a translation is produced which sidesteps that problem by making the translation oral only. The Christians of the people group then do not need a written Bible to know God's Word, but can learn of the Lord by simply hearing the Word.
The traditional way is: learn the language from the people group members, analyzing the phonemes (smallest...
The traditional arguments for the "existence" for God effectively deny God's fundamental identity.
Uncaused existence is the fundamental identity of God. God being the fundamental self evident truth by which all other self evident truths are self evident.
God is the uncaused existence. To deny God is to deny that, God is God, and is irrational. It is tantamount to saying there is no existence. God is the uncaused existence in which anything that exists must exist in. God being omnipresent.

And before we proceed any farther,
I shall just point out:

Have you wondered what God's intended message was when He talked about "conscience." We know that salvation restores our conscience, and that by the practice of sin we can defile our conscience. If we have splashed mud upon the window of our soul that lets God's light in, how do we scrub it clean? Has God provided something like Windex?
If we consider an action, say to misrepresent others, why would the light of God shining through our conscience not dissuade us?
