Discussion for Hebrews 10

  • Wesley
    IN ORDER TO BE SAVED YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE THAT JESUS WHO WAS GOD'S ONLY BEGOTTEN SON THAT HE CAME INTO THE WORLD TO DIE FOR YOUR SINS WAS BURIED AND ROSE FROM THE DEAD 3 DAYS LATER.YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE THAT HE DID THAT FOR YOU.YOU CANNOT ADD WORKS TO THE GOSPEL.IT NEVER WAS BASED ON YOUR PERFORMANCE AND IT NEVER WILL.FOR IT IS A FREE GIFT.IF SALVATION IS NOT OF WORKS THEN YOU CAN'T JUDGE BY WORKS.
  • A disciple
    The Law is for teaching us the character of love for God and our neighbor; and the sacrifices done under the Priesthood of the sons of Aaron, to teach us the things contained in the great and perfect work of Christ our atonement and our Redeemer. What was done for bringing sins to remembrance, were not done for them to continue in sins; but to remember God's promised salvation from the beginning.
  • Stephende
    We have gone astray and will continue to stray because God requires of us to hear him and obey him, a little by little, precept by precept. Most Christians' worship amounts to idolatry, in that they worship the image and neglect the teaching of God, which Jesus taught in the Temple and to his disciples. We remain in sin without the knowledge God himself has imparted to us thru the Prophets.
  • Irene123
    "Not forsaking the assembling of yourselves together as the manner of some is ..... "; 'forsaking' does not mean being ill, or injured and HAVING to stay home or in hosp. It means 'willfully' not attending. Many only attend church on Christmas, lent, Resurrection Sunday,, christenings, etc. And all churches have more services than that a year.
  • Steve morrow
    Hebrews 10:36 for you have need of patience that after you have done the will of GOD you might receive the promise 10:38 now the just shall live by faith but if any man draw back MY soul shall have no pleasure in him 10:39 but we are not of them that who draw back into perdition but of them that believe to the saving of the soul
  • G Dlamini
    Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God.To me this verse talks about us that after we have received Him as Lord and Savior, We should then seek His face by reading the word of God, what our assignment is in this world and perform it.
