  1. 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...
  2. I really couldn't care less what all these other...

    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,...
  3. 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.
  4. 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...
  5. That sure is reading a lot into a vague verse. As...

    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...
  6. You stated that someone could have a false...

    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....
  7. Strictly speaking, there is nothing in that...

    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...
  8. "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...
  9. 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...
  10. 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...
  11. Yes, that "faith" is not genuine because it does...

    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...
  12. Well, isn't that clever.

    Well, isn't that clever.
  13. A lot of people claim to believe in "grace," yet...

    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...
  14. No, they don't.

    No, they don't.
  15. Either Paul was lying, or you are wrong on every...

    Either Paul was lying, or you are wrong on every single one of those points.
  16. What is more realistic — that Paul didn't know...

    What is more realistic — that Paul didn't know what the Hebrew text says, or that you don't know what it says?
  17. 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...
  18. It doesn't really matter who is speaking, but in...

    It doesn't really matter who is speaking, but in context God is speaking. God is saying that despite all the horrific things that are going to happen, as shown in the vision, the end of the vision...
  19. What is your actual point? Posting two...

    What is your actual point? Posting two contradictory translations of the same verse is supposed to show me something?



    Are you unable to read? The answer to your question is yes.
  20. Okay. Then you are refusing to admit what Paul...

    Okay. Then you are refusing to admit what Paul plainly does. If walking in the Spirit were the same as living in the Spirit, Paul would not distinguish them.



    Then maybe God has hardened your...
  21. You are admitting that someone alive in the...

    You are admitting that someone alive in the Spirit CAN FAIL to walk in the Spirit. You are admitting that the person has to be commanded, meaning it is not automatic. That possibility of failure...
  22. As usual, you show zero ability to read the...

    As usual, you show zero ability to read the context of a passage.



    Just quoting a passage from Galatians isn't an argument. Galatians teaches free grace theology, as I already showed. Living in...
  23. You can't have "fidelity" to a vision. Instead, a...

    You can't have "fidelity" to a vision. Instead, a person has faith in a vision. The context clearly shows that it is talking about faith.

    Habakkuk 2:2-4

    2 And the Lord answered me, and said,...
  24. You haven't done anything to interpret the...

    You haven't done anything to interpret the ambiguous verse that you recite, or to show that the "topic" in Philippians 2 is the same topic as Ephesians 2.
  25. Faith means to accept that God has given you...

    Faith means to accept that God has given you eternal life via Jesus Christ.

    1 John 5:10-11

    10 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath...
