You said:
"Even common sense would tell anybody that you cannot co-exist with sin and unless there is a change of heart and a pure heart that person cannot Inherit the Kingdom of God."

I agree! Did I say anything different? If you had read my post you would see I said as much. Perhaps the problem you have is you think Jesus can not change a person's heart unless that person "allows" it.

It seems you would rather damn me to hell for believing God is powerful enough to save all people. By the way I believe Christ is my Lord and savior and that is the only way to salvation. And you think I am going to hell because I think Jesus can save all humanity? Unbelievable. That is ok though, one day you will understand God's love. One day we will all be before Him and will rejoice and praise Him and see His amazing plan for humanity.
You are right, I did make a mistake and took someone else's post and thought it was you. So sorry, like I said I am a bit tired.

Just PM me later and we will get this sorted out. Lol, I don't know who believes in what anymore.

Accepted. We all make mistakes. I too apologize for speaking badly on you. Only God knows the heart.

GOD BLESS!!!

BTW: I hope things get better for you and your brother.

I had to write something here. My brother and I became estranged in 1981, he's into weird stuff out of the isle of the Phillippines (sorry). Anyway at that time we have agreed to disagree, but there comes a point for those of us who know the Biblical truth, not to hide that message under a bushel. I was chastised by him for posting scripture on Face book that proclaim the diety of Christ. He said that if I didn't stop he would have to argue with me, and that I should stop. So, according to him, I have no right of religion, no right of speech, and I have to do what he says. He's 3 years younger than I am and we're in our 60's!!!!

I wrote him and said, I won't argue and we have brother sister love here. Yeah right! he Hid my Profile and that's that. What we all have as believers is prayer... so I continue to pray for him.

Sorry ConnieJoe,

I am all too acquainted with the turmoil and suffering caused by family members. In fact I am the only believer out of four kids. My sister (who has teminal cancer) is the only one who doesn't argue with me about Christianity but she doesn't talk about it either.

My brother in prison did the same thing as your brother did, but I stood up to him. I actually talk about Jesus everytime he talks about talking to the dead and everyone going to heaven. I figure if he can talk about his belief then so can I.. The only difference is... he doesn't have an instruction manual and I do so he has nothing to base his faith on.. He doesn't believe in sin or the Bible.

It is frustrating and all one can do is pray and proclaim the Truth.. You have a right to say whatever you want to day on Facebook, espescially on your profile. If he doesn't like it then he doesn't have to visit your site...

Anyway, God Bless and I will be thinking about you and your brother.

Peace in Jesus
