  1. The Father is masculine but I doubt He's "male" unless he has a male spiritual reproductive organ, which I cannot even type with a straight face. Male and female denote biological function, which applies to organic material/flesh, neither of which the Father is of (He is a spirit). The Messiah was the only one to have seen the Father, and he calls Him "Father," so there is a pretty good hint towards His character.
  2. I was told that I was required to work today and I called in and said that I would not work because I guard the 10 commandments. I live in an "at will" state and have a high probability of being fired for doing this, but I believe that I have done the right thing at this time. If I have not done the right thing, why is this so and where can it be found in scripture? My interpretation of what Jesus spoke against was not the law of Moses, but against the ridiculous additions that were made to it by the scribes and Pharisees. I also know that the Sabbath day (or seventh day) was created before the law of Moses. The Sabbath day appears to be a gift from the most high to mankind for rest and for learning about God (Jesus taught in the tabernacle on the Sabbath day routinely, and this is why I want to learn about the Sabbath day now), and it feels wrong to deny a gift from God.
  3. What? God preordains prophets and seers; not those whom are saved. Just because one knows the result of something doesn't mean one caused it to happen. Your verses do not imply at all what your post is implying. John 3:20 KJV "For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved." [lest his deeds should be reproved] If man is dead in sin, then he can believe in God and come unto repentance... As described in John 3:17-18 KJV (Oh, and notice the word "might," just a fun tidbit) and John 3:35-36 KJV And I see it is so common for Calvinists to claim that if God's will is delayed by men, then that makes God a respecter of persons... It is so blatantly obvious in 2 Peter 3:9 KJV that God is not a respecter of men, but a respecter of His own promise.
  4. Men can delay God's promises. This I have no doubt.
  5. Go read Romans 11 KJV and tell me that you cannot lose salvation. You MUST hold onto your salvation or you WILL be snipped from the olive tree. I am honestly just trying to save you and many others from this "once saved always saved" doctrine and I know that it will lead billions into their own destruction.
  6. @Calvarystudy So when several lists are given of the types of people who will not be saved, and someone who was once saved becomes those types of people, you would say what? Or when Christ himself said that he that endures until the end, the same shall be saved, he really meant he that endures until they are saved at X years old during church champ, the same shall be saved? I'm not sure I understand your interpretation of this doctrine.
  7. Well as you know, I did say that the Holy Spirit was predominantly masculine; the implication I've made is that He does have feminine attributes. The attribute that aids me happens to be feminine and so I used lowercase "she" (1 Corinthians 12:8 KJV) It is, of course, to no surprise that God has feminine attributes. After all, male and female were both made in the image of the trinity through the Spirit whom hovered the waters. While the proverb in chapter 3 does say "find wisdom," the prior chapter makes it known that it is given by God. "If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures; Then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God. For the Lord giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding. He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly. He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of his saints." Proverbs 2:4-8 KJV It is said in these verses that wisdom from God reveals hidden (like treasures) knowledge from God. Similar to 1 Corinthians 2:10 KJV: "But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God." I must ask why it is that many believe they do not hold fast to the Holy Spirit, because I've not heard teachings from a congregation in many years and I've only read the bible alone; having started a few months ago, and I've found scripture that states otherwise.
  8. How fearful you should be to be in your old age to not understand the simple words that I speak. Anyone can roam your website and see that you are full of blasphemies; your mind is bound in chains and you will not adhere to verse. You claim Satan and his demons give wisdom, understanding to all who will walk alongside, increase your length of days, bring peace to those in distress and help grant entry unto the tree of life? Your words are abominable. I presuppose that my words are from the Holy Spirit? From which else shall I seek the authority that my words come from? If they were of mine own then I would say that I am unsure.
  9. I said "she" rather than She, because the Holy Spirit has predominantly masculine attributes, but the attributes which guide me are clearly feminine. I will back up what I say through the word as usual. Proverbs 3:13-18 KJV The Holy Spirit gives wisdom and understanding to all who will walk alongside. The Holy Spirit increases one's length of days, brings peace to those in distress and helps grant entry unto the tree of life in the kingdom. I am pounced upon like prey over little things as though the words I've been led towards by the Holy Spirit are so offensive that they must be killed, but I've never not backed my statements with verse.
  10. Niccolo Machiavelli or camouflaged nihilism to be more accurate.
  11. You renounce Jesus' commandment which was to preach baptism at the end of Matthew. I hope you do not say that any of Jesus' commandments are not necessary for salvation in the future. Revelation 22:14-15 KJV As for salvation; you must endure and hold onto it. You can let go and lose it. Matthew 24:13 KJV I do not need superfluous paragraphs to back up what has been said in the Bible. The Holy Spirit is my helper; she guides me.
  12. I am compiling a list. Add or clarify if you have certainty. Revelation 22:14-15 KJV Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 KJV Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. Galatians 5:19-21 KJV Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. Ephesians 5:3-5 KJV But fornications, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Hebrews 12:14-17 KJV Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled; Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright. For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears.
  13. Well it is quite obvious that one can lose their salvation and that one does need to be baptized... I am not even of their sect but after carefully reading the NT this is very basic.
  14. Im at work so I cannot read the whole post, but I will say beforehand that if I were to choose a denomonation it would be the Church of Christ. All but one of the most brilliant local Christians I have come across have been members of the Church of Christ.
