Re: OSAS vs Losing Salvation

Have you guys ever thought about the phrase "I AM" to have no time reference? Yet where the term is used the word "before" is also used. Definitely can make your brain hurt if you let it. :-D

Re: Is Benny Hinn having a change of heart?

But i as a lad learned you never ever speak against God's Ministers.Never. Good advice for all of us. If we don't have the opportunity to go to the person personally if we have a problem with them it is best to keep quiet, especially ministers of the gospel that are obviously called by God and anoi...

Re: OSAS vs Losing Salvation

My thought is that time must somehow emanate from God in a manner similar to how light radiates from the sun. So long as God has existed, time must exist. And, since God has always existed, time has always existed. A lack of existence of time would indicate a lack of existence of God. And, if time ...

Re: Is Benny Hinn having a change of heart?

One thing we can be sure of from God's word, false repentance and repentance to man is nothing unless repentance from a pure heart to God from a true change brings forth that action. Anything else is a waste of breath. Read about Judas Iscariot's fate who repented to a group of men and did not get r...

Re: OSAS vs Losing Salvation

Time has to have a beginning. If there were an infinite number of days prior to today then today would never have arrived. That is an interesting hypothesis. However, to me this sounds like a denial of the very concept of eternity: time without beginning or end. I will not take the "time" to explai...

Re: Saved by faith

Indeed we are saved BY GRACE that is appropriated THRU FAITH and even appropriated faith IS A GIFT of God. Eph 2:8,9 Sharing some questions based on the premise you made above. You state that even appropriated faith is a gift of God. From that statement it would seem that you take the word "it" in ...

Re: Saved by faith

So, what puzzles me is why people believe it is their actions that keep them saved? It is not even their actions and their assumption that grace makes up the difference. It is by His grace alone. It is by His grace that one's actions appear to be good, to begin with. I see your point in this yet no...

Re: OSAS vs Losing Salvation

So, for God to be unchanging, the same, "time" must be different than our current understanding of past, present, future. It is one of the mysteries that we cannot fully grasp this side of eternity. It is something we view through a glass darkly. I tend to agree with this. I don't think the amount ...

Re: OSAS vs Losing Salvation

Time has to have a beginning. I would state that time does not have to have a beginning. An assumption to such does not make it truth. Only what you know as time is something measured or a reference of measurement by which you determine a period. God gave those reference points (measurements) to us...
