"Larry, this is conversion theology presented as an alternative to "working your way to heaven."
Although mention is made of Christ's "one payment for sins", a new birth is curiously missing from all parts of this…"
"Thanks so much Marna! I'm a lover of audio teachings,and I love to teach in audio format myself.Writing short articles was an experiment on my part.I wasn't shure if God could use me to encourage others in this way.Thanks for your…"
"Hey Larry, I enjoyed your entry so much. I had to leave it on my screen while I was working on something else; and keep going back to it, one sentence at a time in order to truly absorb it fully. Why do we forget this? In our…"
"It is the desire(s) of the flesh that "always falls short of the glory of God". We know that Christ came in full human flesh, and did overcome the flesh and the works of the Adversary. Why any longer be a victim of the desires of your…"
"Hi Marna.Thanks for this post.My heart cries out to you.The fact that the lost cannot see or hear that which we can see and hear is a witness in itself to the lost of the unseen Holy Spirit within us.All the world has is our testimony.All the world…"
hey eric...thanks for the response,and your encouraging comment! I'm at loss for words,I guess that's a first.As far as how I've been, I've been great,thanks to christ!.My only regret is that I wasted so much time focusing on the knowledge of god's grace,rather than being excited about the content ,which of course puffed me up,as if I needed any help in that department.You were without a doubt my best friend,and it's crystal clear to me now that it was me and my galationism which seperated us as close friends.My behavior towards you as far as i'm concerned was one of my greatest sins.Anyways didn't mean to get mushy on you,but I just wanted you to know that words cant describe how sorry I am.I didn't think you'd ever talk to me again.I kept thinking that at least we could talk to each other in heaven and I could apologize then..I searched for you on the web and thats how I discovered simplechurch as well,and I got twice blessed! I'm absolutely amazed at the paradox of faith...That the more I kiss my life goodby and just let christ live His life in my experience the more awesome of a life I have! Anyways I better stop talking....what am I writing a book?.Your friend and brother in christ larry.
Welcome Larry....Don't feel regret...you are among many here..who focused on the knowledge moreso then the LIFE...."Religion verses Relationship"....All is good... He got us where we need to be ... PRAISE GOD! So glad He finishes what He starts...
