“Could I be WRONG? – 101” …Blog
*** (Matthew 22:29) Jesus answered and said to them, You ERR, not knowing the Scriptures nor the power of God.
*** (Acts 17:11) And these were more noble = than those of Thessalonica, = in that they received = the Word = with all readiness of mind = and = searched the Scriptures = “DAILY” = to see if those things were so [or Not].
*** (John 17:17) Sanctify them through Your Truth. Your Word is Truth.
*** (1Thessaloninans 5:21) Prove ALL things: hold fast to the good.
*** (2Peter 3:15-16) And think of the long-suffering of our Lord as salvation as our beloved brother Paul also has written to you according to the wisdom given to him
(2Pet 3:16) as also in all his letters, = speaking in them of these things; = in which are some things hard to be understood, = which the unlearned and unstable = Pervert, = as also they Do the rest of the = SCRIPTURES, = to their own destruction [Damnation].
May I ask You a Question…? Honestly, have You ever asked yourself, “Could I be WRONG”…? Apparently the Jews of Jesus’ day, did Not think so. But in “Matthew 22:29”, He, Christ Jesus: flat told them, “You are WRONG!” The above Scriptures and many more validate this “FACT!” We are all born Ignorant [Un–Informed]; that is without any knowledge of any sort. We as babies, learn to communicate in a foreign language. We go to school to learn knowledge. We readily accept most of what we are taught, without question. We believe the News & Social Media, without question. But, have You: Personally, ever asked yourself… “Could I be WRONG”…? And that without knowing, “1John 5:19”…!
*** (Hebrews 5:11-to-14) We have much to say about this, but it is difficult to explain because you have become too lazy to understand.
(Heb 5:12) In fact, though by now you should be teachers, you still need someone to teach you the basic truths of God's word. You have become people who need milk instead of solid food.
(Heb 5:13) For everyone who lives on milk is still a baby and is inexperienced in the message of righteousness.
(Heb 5:14) But solid food is for mature people, whose minds are trained by practice to distinguish good from evil.
*** (Matthew 11:27-to-30) All things have been entrusted to me by my Father. No one fully knows the Son except the Father, and no one fully knows the Father except the Son and the person to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.
(Matt 11:28) "Come to me, all of you who are weary and loaded down with burdens, and I will give you rest.
(Matt 11:29) Place my yoke on you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
(Matt 11:30) For my yoke is pleasant, and my burden is light."
*** (2Corinthains 4:16) For this cause we do not faint; but though our outward man perishes, yet the inward man is being renewed = day by day. [John 15:1-2-3]
*** (2Timothy 2:15-16) Study earnestly to present yourself approved to God; a workman that does not need to be ashamed; rightly dividing the Word of Truth.
(2Tim 2:16) But shun profane, vain babblings, for they will increase to more ungodliness.
Do You ever disagree… with another ‘Brother or Sister’ in Christ…? Has one of them, presented to You: Scripture; and then You disagreed with them…? Did You, then go to the Scriptures in prayer: and asked Christ Jesus: What is the Truth about this topic…? Please answer, “Yes or No”…? Or did You automatically, “Count them WRONG?” If You did not answer them with Scripture, then… “You are WRONG”…! Many ‘Pick & Choose scriptures: “Without the Totality of the Scriptures!” Have You ever had someone tell You, “You are Wrong” and then NOT Present an alternative thought or reasoning…? Most have been ‘Brainwashed’ by their Church or Denomination about Doctrine. Does Water Baptism, bring about Salvation…? Please answer, “Yes or No”…?
“Pick & Choose ‘Christian’s’? – 101”
QUESTION…? Ephesians 4:5 One LORD, One Faith, One “BAPTISM”….!
Is that One “BAPTISM”… The Holy Spirit Baptism, “1Corithains 12:13”…?
Or is it SIMPLY: Water Baptism: which ONLY gets one Wet…? Please Answer…?
*** (1Corinthains 12:13) For also by one Spirit we are all baptized [1Corinthians 12:13] into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether bond or free, even all were made to drink into one Spirit. [John 7:38-39 & Acts 15:8-9]
*** (Titus 3:5) NOT by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit,
*** (1Corinthains 1:17) For Christ did ‘NOT’ send me [Paul] to Baptize; but to Preach the gospel; not in wisdom of words; lest the cross of Christ should be made of no effect.
*** (Romans 11:6) But if by grace, then it is no more of works; otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it is of works, then it is no more of grace; otherwise work is no more work.
Water Baptism and Salvation – 101 Blog.
What about “Salvation”… can “One Lose IT or NOT”…? Don’t You think it is important enough to, “Find Out what the Scriptures Teach”…? There are two main camps, ‘Those who think they ‘Can’ & those who know [Romans 8:9]: they ‘Cannot’. Shouldn’t You really know: “What the Scriptures Teach?” But have You ‘First’: Prayerfully gone to the Scriptures and “Fully Tested Bible Doctrine [teaching]…? Many, “Pick & Choose”, without allowing the Scriptures, the Holy Word of God: to teach “You!” It goes something like this. What do You Believe? I believe what my Church believes. What does your Church believe? My Pastor teaches us, what to believe: from the Bible. Well, what does your Pastor, believe? We all believe the, ‘Same Thing!’ Did You know the “Church of Christ Denomination”… wrongly believes & teaches, that one Cannot be saved, without water baptism: [Galatians 1:8-9 to their Damnation]. They purposely Omit, the ‘Thief on the Cross’ and the above Bible verses & discussions. They become Legalist, with their Church teachings!
“MANY”… miss that the Holy Spirit... “John 7:38-39”... and the Spiritual Baptism... “1Corinthians 12:13 & Ephesians 4:5”... is a “Divine Transaction”: Done by “GOD ALONE!” Did ‘You’ purposely miss.... “Acts 15:8-9”... where GOD sees their “Hearts”... and HE ‘Only’... gives them: His Holy Spirit… “Ephesians 4:30 & Romans 8:9 & 2Corinthains 1:21-22”!
*** (Romans 8:9) You, however, are not of the flesh but under the control of the Spirit; since God's [Holy] Spirit lives in you. And if Anyone: ‘does not’ have the Spirit of Christ, he does = ‘NOT’ = belong to Him.
*** (Galatians 2:16) Knowing that a man is “Not Justified”: -> by works of the Law: -> but through Faith in Jesus Christ; even we believed in Jesus Christ: -> that we might be Justified by the faith in Christ: -> and ‘Not’ by works of the Law. For ALL flesh -> will ‘Not’ be justified: ->by works. of law.
*** (Galatians 3:11) Now it is obvious that no one is justified in the sight of God by the law, because "The righteous [Justified] will live by FAITH."

*** (Hebrews 5:8-9) though being a Son, yet He learned obedience by the things which He suffered.
(Heb 5:9) And being perfected, [Jesus] He became the Author of ETERNAL SALVATION: to all those who obey Him, [John 7:38-39]
*** (Ephesians 4:30) And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God: by Whom you are “SEALED”… until the day of redemption.

*** (Luke 24:44-to-49) And He [Jesus] said to them, These are the Words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that ALL things must be Fulfilled: which were written in the Law of Moses and in the Prophets and in the Psalms about Me [Jesus].
(Luke 24:45) And He opened their mind to understand the Scriptures.
(Luke 24:46) And He [Jesus] said to them, So it is written, and so it behooved “Christ” to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day, [here Jesus called Himself, Christ –> Messiah!]
(Luke 24:47) and that repentance and remission of sins should be proclaimed in His name among ALL nations, beginning at Jerusalem. [Acts 17:30-31 & 2Peter 3:9]
(Luke 24:48) And you are witnesses of these things.
(Luke 24:49) And behold, I send the PROMISE [John 7:38-39] of My Father [God] on you. But you sit in the city of Jerusalem until you are clothed with power from on high.
*** (1Jn 2:21) I have not written to you because you do not know the Truth; but because you know it; and know that -> ‘No Lie’ is of -> the Truth.
“Where do Christians go ‘Wrong?’ – 101” …Blog.
Please allow me to ask You a question…? Can You take your Bible and “Defend what You Believe” about Christ Jesus & Salvation…? What happens when someone presents to You: an alternative “Reason & Scriptures?” Do You automatically count them Wrong…? Or do You “Prayerfully ‘Search’ the Scriptures” till You know for sure? Of course You know; that we shall ALL stand before the Judgment seat of Christ, both the “Sinner & Saint?” Of course, You know; that He, Christ Jesus: will judge us with ONLY His Holy Word and NOT with “Church or Denomination” teaching! Will you answer be, “Lord, I ONLY: believed my Church…! Will HE accept that, “Yes or NO”…? Sorry, NO…!
*** (John 12:48) He who rejects Me [Jesus] and does not receive My Words; has One who judges him; the Word that I have spoken; the same shall ‘Judge’ him in the “Last Day”.
*** (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14) Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter. Fear God; and keep His commandments. For this is the whole duty of man.
(Eccl 12:14) For God shall bring every work into judgment; with ‘every’ secret thing; ‘whether’ it is Good; or ‘whether’ Evil.
*** (1Corinthians 3:11-to-15) For any other foundation can no one lay than the one being laid, who is Jesus Christ.
(1Cor 3:12) And if anyone builds on this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble,
(1Cor 3:13) each one's work shall be revealed. For the Day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try each one's work as to what kind it is.
(1Cor 3:14) If anyone's work which he built remains, he shall receive a reward.
(1Cor 3:15) If anyone's work shall be burned up, he shall suffer loss. But he shall be saved, yet so as by fire.
