Grace is the fact that missing the mark does not damn you forever.

Yes, Grace (APPROVAL) would mean that your no longer missing the mark or damned forever.

Well I can see you have no grace as you are unaccepting of others who do not believe like you.

So be it.

No....it really isn't.

What I'm bothered by is people that are perverting the gospel of Christ with nonsensical teachings. This is supposed to be a Christianity forum...but everything else is welcomed in here. True Christianity is shouted down in lieu of garbage.

If you're going to teach non-biblical, non-Christian things...then don't call yourself a Christian. Why do people insist on being called what they're not?

Grace is an unmerited favor from God,something we didn't earn on our own,such as our salvation. Jesus paid the price.

Well kd, I'll give you the name of the person who told me when I asked what denomination we are when I first heard about Divine Love. You can then ask him why we are DL Christians. Or maybe the president of the church. Either one is fine with me.
If you would read what my religion is about, you would then understand that Jesus takes from the bible the stuff that is true and explains why the other stuff isn't true.
Just because I don't agree with you where the bible is concerned, doesn't mean I am less of a christian. I gave you the definition of a christian. You still want to argue that you are right when clearly I gave you the truth of christianity.
Stop being petty about who is what when in fact we are all children of the same God who could care less about religion. It's people like you who should really take a good hard look in the mirror and see just what it is your portraying to others. Seems to me you forgot what the teachings of Jesus truely are.

Its theoretical. I agree, nobody will be damned forever. I'm saying if there was no ability to receive Grace. Thankfully everyone will receive it in time.
