    To Bruce - I was baptized in Jesus' name in '73 and I speak in tongues. It's wonderful, isn't it.
  • Bruce
    Irene: The Bible is "The Word"of God. The Word is Jesus! The Bread of Life! The One "you" need "Faith" in for Salvation. Only by The Blood of The Lamb is there Salvation. His sacrificed paid it all! Call on Him while He is near! Tomorrow May be too late! Eternity's coming! He will change your life,you will speak with a new tongue. The world ( lost people) will not understand! "The Beginning"----?
  • Irene123
    There was a comment on the back pgs. of this chapter about the distinction between 'faith' and 'the faith', but it wasn't completely followed through. In the book of James he talks a lot about 'faith'; this is the faith we have, our belief in God and His Word - it's a verb. Jude speaks of 'the faith ' once delivered to the saints - this is a noun. 'The faith' is the word of God, the Bible.

    For by grace are we saved through faith--.Ephesians 2:8/But without faith it is impossible to please him:--.Hebrews11:6/No light switch need that takes too long. "YOU" will know your a lost sinner,when The Father calls:John6:44, no special words needed,He sees your Heart. Just ask forgiveness:1John 1:9./ You will be Baptized with the Holy Ghost and Fire:Matthew 3:11/ you will know:2Corinthians5:17
  • Stephende
    Many, many Christians fall into the trap from Pauls letters that being "saved" is easy as turning on a light switch, that all you need is faith to earn the favor if God, and what they do and think and feel in this world in inconsequential. In truth many preachers in our time fain righteousness while walking in sin.

    Praise God we are not under the law anymore but under grace
