If God could save one soul from one sin by mere generosity, He could save all souls from sin by generosity and the death of Christ thus becomes the greatest possible divine blunder.

Romans 11:32 disagrees with you.

God is reconciling all through Christ so how can Christ death and resurrection be a blunder? --- if Christ was NOT raised NOBODY would be saved........

by generosity do you mean Gods mercy and grace?

No, actually it doesn't, just did a study on Romans . . . and go back and read Chap 11 in it's entirety . . . remember we cannot take a verse out, without having all the fence posts line up . . . otherwise the meaning will be out of context . . . and Paul was speaking of Israel/Jews

Christs is our mediator . . . the accuser, is accusing brethren day and night the bible says . . . . Christ is mediator to those who put their faith in him . . . , you must believe that Jesus is the son of God, and that he lived, was crucified and was resurrected . . you must have faith . . . . . that is the continuing theme, message . . . Faith in Christ . . . eternal life.

We MUST, MUST, MUST have all of our fence posts lined up. You are right!

Think about this for a sec. Are our New Testaments in order chronologically ?

From the book, "Pagan Christianity": "The Bible has been transformed into a series of isolated, disjointed, fragmented sentences."

For it is written "But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin." (I John 1:7). Notice that cleansing for sin is conditioned upon fellowship with God, and that fellowship is conditioned upon walking in the light. If the blood of Christ is not cleansing us from all sin, it is impossible to be in a relationship with God! Fellowship and relationship are inseparable from the saving work of Christ.

Sparrow, the big picture is A Saviour will Save . . .but what does Jesus teach . . .it does not matter what I, you, a pastor, a denomination teaches . . . the old testament if filled with prophecies regarding our Saviour that was fulfilled in Jesus . . . . and the entire bible and Christ's teachings . . . sum up he is a Saviour to all who believe, have faith . . it's just one teaching upon another . . .reap what your sow, the man who built his house on sand . . . the tare and the wheat . . . there are so many parables that Jesus taught and they all sayd this:


Eternal Salvation = Faith in the Saviur Jesus Christ . . . . it is really that simple.

I am not talking about chronologically here when I say fence posts . . .

I am trying to state . . . what is Jesus message . . . in all that he taught . . he was a teacher, teaching a message . . . and his message on how to gain eternal life . . . was clear . . . . and if you didn't understand, he spoke in parables . . . . I wish he preached on UR . . . that all will have eternal life forever, regardless of their faith . . . . what did Jesus teach????
