      LOL, run to Rome for your salvation and let the Bible continue to get dusty. Too bad you consider God's word to be poison while you drink down the poison of your church tradition.

      Satan wants you dead in him...
      Christ wants you to Live in Him...

      Sin is the pivot...
      Repentance from sin saves...
      Because God Saves those who are repenting...

      Salvation is a matter of life and death...
      Life in Christ...
      Or...
      Death in Satan's dominion...

      The choice is yours alone...
      Repentance is your means...
      The cross of repentance your Joy...
      Union with Christ your Destination...

      The Mystical Marriage of the Lamb...

      This is a great Mystery:
      but I am speaking
      concerning Christ and the Church.

      They aren't the same, but every sin estranges us from God. So they have the same effect, even though they are different in various other ways.

      I already said that they are different. But any sin is destructive to our relationship with God. It is not as though God, who by nature is perfect, is okay with SOME sin so long as its "not like all that bad, man."

      "Those who see themselves as little sinners will embrace a little savior."

      "Those who see themselves not needing saving won't accept a savior."
      We are justified by works - just not our own.

      It's such fun ... all this endless fighting ... a theological war without end ... it is like those video games ... see who can blow up an enemy first always knowing that there'll be another enemy and then another ad infinitum



      Of course, the subject matter for this war of words is serious.

      Which makes the 'game' dangerous

      For one's immortal soul

      But you all seem intent on the battle

      I'm going to watch some videos from HALO ...

      a battle game where The Covenant battles against Earth

      to decide if all life will be exterminated to end an infection of The Flood using the rings as the extermination weapons.

      Let's hope that your battle is as ineffective in reality as the one in the game.
      Saint Jude, author of the new testament letter.

      He is the patron of impossible causes because the scriptural Letter of St. Jude, which he authored, urges Christians to persevere in difficult times.

      No need....

      Couldn't be more simple....

      The word literally means to fall short, to miss the target.

      And the Bible clearly says what that target is: To be the equal of God in righteousness, holiness and love.

      And that the consequences of sin is death - physical, spiritual and etermal.

      Simple.


      But one of Satan's lies is that we ain't so bad..... because he can convince us that we don't really need a SAVIOR (just a little help from a friend) then we are his.



      Back to the topic....
      We are justified by works - just not our own.
