My brother Fundy . . . whatever interpretation brings you to Jesus and causes you to follow his example . . . is right for YOU. The most important thing is following Jesus and his example . . . not WHY you do.

He has said...

Well, which one is it?
He means he will not openly profess the faith of Christ Jesus to the nation, which means that he is denying Christ and the faith to which he claims he adheres to.

Unless you repent and have faith is the most important. Are you saying, 15 people could have 15 interpretations of salvation and they are all right?

No . . . those are only the means to the end . . . repentance and remorse are the motivation to correct your life . . . faith in Jesus is the guarantee that it will be worth it . . . actually working to know Jesus personally and feel him in your consciousness correcting your stray thoughts and feelings and bringing them in tune with God and the holy spirit is what is most important.

I am yet to see that verse, however repentance and faith is all over the bible then the Holy Spirit dwells inside of you.

I asked you a question 15 people with 15 interpretations of salvation. Are they all right?

In quite another context. Are you that torn?

In need to talk to someone, personally? Without fear? Trust?

???

Not really you see I based the word of God off scripture, you however base it off feelings, whatever feels right? (Jeremiah 17:9) "The heart is more deceitful than all else And is desperately sick; Who can understand it?

(1 Timothy 4) 1Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

How do you know you have the right spirit without scripture telling you?
