Is it not wonderful that ALL WILL BE RESURRECTED from DEATH TO LIFE through the Spirit of Truth!

I couldn't help but notice, CM and CW2L, that neither of you got back to us on that other thread about asking God why He instructed us to love our enemies and turn the other cheek if He refuses to do that Himself. Did you ask Him? Did you get an answer?

The choir sings both, sacred and secular; serving their own religious purpose.

They have that covered, BHFT . . . "does the clay ask the potter . . ." and assorted nonsense. ::Sigh:: They refuse to think about these issues and ask meaningful questions sincerely . . . they simply spout their rote indoctrinations and what they have been told are supporting scripture in blind faith that they are right. Any of us who disagree MUST be of satanic origin.

And many don't realize all of us lumps of clay are being molded by God and then we'll be put in the kiln and fired to become pottery, vessels uniquely made by the Potter.

They also say they are turning the other cheek when they haven't got an answer.

Happy is the man who realizes he may be mistaken. He doesn't need to turn the other cheek, he just simpy humbly accepts he was wrong in his conception of God and thanks God that He made himself known to him in a new light.

How wrong i have been in my misconception of him throughout the years, and never once did He condemn me for it.

Genesis 3:3
"but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden,
and you must not touch it, or you will die.’ ”

Then Satan's universal love message:
Genesis 3:1,4
“Did God really say,.....?" “You will not surely die,”
THE RESULT: universalism failed
Genesis 8:21
“Never again will I curse the ground because of man, even though every inclination of his heart is evil from childhood.

Ezekiel 18:20
The soul who sins is the one who will die.

Romans 1:20
so that men are without excuse.

>>>>>>>>>> \\\\\\\\\ and for the future ........//////<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
Ezekiel 18:20
The righteousness of the righteous man will be credited to him,
and the wickedness of the wicked will be charged against him.

Ezekiel 3:20
“Again, when arighteous man turns from his righteousness and does evil,
and I put a stumbling block before him, he will die...he will die for his sin.
The righteous things he did will not be remembered,
Then Jesus will fulfill Ezekiel 18:20 saying ............Matthew 25:32,33
"to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father;
take your inheritance,
the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world.' "

"to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.' "

THE RESULT: universalism will fail
Jesus will fulfill Ezekiel 18:20
Jesus will fulfill Matthew 25:32,33

"As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him." John 17.2

The Father has placed all flesh in Jesus' hands. And He won't lose even one that the Father has given him.

Read Romans 5.12-21. Paul lays it all out very clearly. Adam's sin: condemnation for all. Jesus' obedience: justification for all.
Jesus is the "new" Adam.


Even if you or anyone else don't like it.


Blessings,
brian

Finn_Jarber, will those people that are not saved be able to sin?
