I am not the one who is professing to be right and everybody else wrong. This is not my thread. I merely asked under what authority do you come by your deduction? If no authority then no one is right rendering this thread moot.

I can't imagine that the Apostle Paul would involve himself with endless debates with those who pervert sound doctrine.

He would however, eventually turn thier body over to satan for the destuction of the flesh, for the protection of the Church and in an effort to help the false teachers to repent and be saved.

Those who proclaim a false gospel, should repent, before it is to late.

"Hey, you know all you have to do is say a little prayer, and your ticket to heaven is assured?" REALLY, I CAN GO TO HEAVEN, AND HAVE MY BEST LIFE NOW??

Give me some prayer, declare me saved,,,shoot declare everyone saved. Then we can all have our cookie now, and eat it. Do I need to do anything after this prayer? Really? Ask for anyything and it will be given to me? Golly gee, pastor. It is all just glorious news isn't it, this god of yours?? I want a god like that too!



This is NOT the God of the Bible. The God of the Bible desires everyone to call upon Him and the Name of the Only Begotten Son. He desires that you submit to Him, as King of all. He desires that you repent of your evil ways, so that a New Creation can be formed in you, by the working of the Holy Spirit. He desires it SO MUCH that He sent His Son here as a ransom for ALL. To save us from ourselves and our filth. Now that is LOVE! If you choose to deny this, or to live your best lives now, then how can we claim to follow Him who said that the WORLD will HATE us, because they know not the One who sent the Son?

This is the God I serve. If it is not yours, then I wonder what your god looks like.

What makes me right? I take at face value what the Scriptures say. If they say "God will have all mankind to be saved for Christ gave Himself a ransom for all" (1 Tim.2:4-6) I believe it. The JW's & Mormons don't, and you, being like them, explain away these truths.

The really bad thing about any ism and shism is that they all come with their own self-serving set of rules and regulations! Why not just Love Him for who He is? You know, I've never heard the word universalism before I came here?

Do you not know that when we stand before Him, we will be stripped to our bare essentials, that NOT ONE "label" will do us any good? Having a relationship with our Lord and Saviour is so much more rewarding! Try it! Forget the "labels" people!

Well, until we get there and stripped bare, there is work to be done that goes beyond our own feelings about it.
