Perhaps they don't like their foundations shaken?

I think the TRUE answer is they are afraid of TRUTH?!

Mat 15: 8-9 comes to mind.
At least she hasn't accused me of being a devil follower yet as the Adventists usually do.

Most people I ask challenging and thought provoking questions usually get abusive and accuses me of following the devil, and then try to lie to sidestep having to answer me.

But I can tell she is not willfully like that. She has a good heart, I can tell

Yeah, i like that verse, but what does that have to do with what i posted?

Question 1. NO i work out my salvation daily/ god must show me what is in the depths of my heart so that i can repent and become free from sin.. i hope and pray that i may become free. as may all of us...
Question 2. NO As above god has yet to show me all of my sin therefore i must wait on him daily so that he can show me and i cant become free of sin.
Question 3. No sin can enter into the kingdom of heaven.
Question 4.You must be sinless to enter the kingdom of heaven
Question 1 was if you believed that you were without sin. To which you answered no. So you are still a sinner ...

So if what you answered to question 4 is true in the way that you seem to imply, that one must be without sin to enter into the kingdom of Heaven, then you have not yet entered into the kingdom of heaven.

Right ... ?

Name the one's who have done so. I've never done it so your statement makes it out like all do--that makes the statement false.

you seemed to have deleted a post with four questions that u asked me earlier in the thread.. which i answered with honesty. If you didnt understand what i wrote then i cannot explain it. only god can show you the truth.. and perhaps then will you fiind peaace .

with Jesus my saviour i will BECOME free from sin as i work out my salvation daily with him.
only a clean heart can enter into the kingdom of heaven.

GOD BLESS YOU
Peace
I didnt delete anything. Maybe an admin deleted my post?

Secondly,do you really fear God? I myself cannot fear God because He is beautiful, loving and gracious. How would you feel if your own children told their friends that they feared you?
