    Yes, homosexuality is one of the worst sins. In fact, all the death penalty sins from the Old Testament would rank pretty high up on the list, although among those, some would still be considered...

    Later in the chapter it says that Moses couldn't see God's face. So either the verse you cited is a figure of speech, or else it is talking about something different from what happens later in the...

    Exodus 33 and the surrounding chapters seem to show the Father descending on Mount Sinai.

    Ezekiel 1 seems to include all three persons traveling and meeting Ezekiel near the river. Notably, one...

    "God" refers to all three put together. So that verse doesn't really contradict what I said.

    Jesus is material. And he is localized.
    The Father is localized, but is not material.
    The Holy Spirit is neither localized nor material.

    Yes. Are you saying that you want to stand for the whole sermon, or are you saying that you want all the Bible quotes to be crammed into one section and stood for?

    Or they'll make you "Stand for the reading of God's word" at the beginning (which is stupid), then read a passage of several verses to you, and then you'll sit down and that'll be the end of the...

    "Us" refers to the apostles, not Christians as a...

    "Us" refers to the apostles, not Christians as a whole. (See 1 John 1:1-3). It isn't saying necessarily that these heretics never had faith. It is just saying that they hung out with the apostles,...
  9. Jesus's harshness or gentleness in Matthew 14...

    Jesus's harshness or gentleness in Matthew 14 made no difference. Either way, Peter began to sink when he lost his assurance. The story illustrates that assurance is an essential part of faith.

    I...

    I really couldn't care less what all these other thinkers believe. Let's focus on what is true, not on what other people say.

    Matthew 6:19-21

    19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth,...
  11. It is obvious that you believe salvation is only...

    It is obvious that you believe salvation is only kept by GENERALLY abstaining from sin, not abstaining from it completely. It's the same basic concept that Catholics believe.
  12. The book also says that all liars are sent to...

    The book also says that all liars are sent to hell. Yet the new creation in Christ is sinless, so this doesn't apply.

    1 John 3:9

    Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed...

    That sure is reading a lot into a vague verse. As it just so happens, reading things into vague verses is a common pastime of works-salvationists. How about find something a little more clear to...

    You stated that someone could have a false assurance. I stated that someone could have a false assurance only if that assurance was based on something other than Jesus.



    No, I don't think so....

    Strictly speaking, there is nothing in that passage about laying hold on anything, or confessing "allegiance."



    You can contend for whatever you want. But to lack assurance is to lack faith. To...
  16. "Present salvational uncertainty" is just a fancy...

    "Present salvational uncertainty" is just a fancy term for unbelief. Whether you want to call faith "subjective" or objective makes no difference. If you doubt whether he has saved you, then you are...
  17. You cannot believe in Christ for salvation while...

    You cannot believe in Christ for salvation while doubting his disposition to save. That is a contradiction. It does not make any sense. And all the examples you cite involve doubt in his disposition...
  18. I still don't think you get my point: If you are...

    I still don't think you get my point: If you are worried about going to hell, then you CANNOT live a life that pleases God. The passage teaches that assurance of salvation is core to the gospel. You...

    Yes, that "faith" is not genuine because it does not meet the definition of faith. Faith, according to Hebrews 11, is basically confidence in God's existence and in his willingness to reward. To...

    Well, isn't that clever.

    A lot of people claim to believe in "grace," yet don't. A lot of people even claim to believe in salvation by faith alone, yet don't. It is called inconsistency. Or you might even want to call it...
  22. No, they don't.

    No, they don't.

    Either Paul was lying, or you are wrong on every single one of those points.

    What is more realistic — that Paul didn't know what the Hebrew text says, or that you don't know what it says?
  25. The context doesn't have anything to do with...

    The context doesn't have anything to do with "faithfulness." It has to do with believing in the vision. The vision is a message of hope.

    Romans 8:24

    For we are saved by hope: but hope that is...
