Discussion for Deuteronomy 28

  • Lu2677
    Bruce, did you answer my question about what verse says Christ is "born" in someone, as you said?
    Eph. 2:8 I believe this verse, do you? (My salvation is great, a gift from God by His grace, through faith.) Are you going to continue to rebuke me concerning "words" "day, date"? As you said the date is not important. If you want to continue in your slanderous post go ahead, for me; Case closed.
  • Bruce
    Lu2677:Some People that are Born Again have no idea of The Day or even The Month. They know there was That "Day",They don't have a "Date" not Important. But They Wil Boast of Their Savior, The Chance in Their Life. But it's not Boasting like you say: It's a "Testimony" of what Christ has done! The blind,lame,sick are Healed:They Told Everyone! You say that Day is not important to you. What Fruit?
  • Lu2677
    Bruce,the day one is saved and the date one is saved is the same day,yet you make a distinction. I am so glad God has you to make such a judgement about me,just because I don't agree with you on this matter.You are arguing over words, and He tells us not to do that.Can you give us verse that shows anyone in his word that was saved, gloried in the day, later; Boasting.

    "If you Love me Keep my commandments" Jesus is thee only one that's sited at the right hand of the father:

  • Bruce
    Lu2677: I never said Exact Date. But The Day of Salvation,there's no other Day Like it. The Day a Person does a 180, Total Life Change. Your testimony says this has not happened to you.
  • Lu2677
    Bruce,I see the problem,I hope this puts an end to it.Christ dwells in the saved person,as scripture you quoted tells us.But you said Christ is "born" in me. I don't know any scripture that says it.John 3:3;a person cannot enter God's kingdom unless he is reborn,so this makes salvation very important.But I still say the exact date a person is saved is not important,endure til the end, is.
