Discussion for John 1

  • A disciple
    Thank you Rene! It seems very terrible to me how with the times so bad, and the end of all things being literally "at hand;" that so many still set themselves to defiantly oppose and contradict, and carry on as if they weren't about to stand before the Judge! "Then truly by there fruits you shall know them." Let us all the more hold fast to Jesus and His Words and wholly follow Him no matter what!
  • Rene Crispin
    I agree so much with your comments faith by works
  • A disciple
    We are saved from our sins by the death burial and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ; and made clean by the Word which He has spoken to us. There is no salvation in any other; for there is no other name given among men whereby we must be saved. BUT, NOT EVERYONE WHO SAYS TO ME, LORD, LORD, SHALL ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN; BUT HE THAT DOES THE WILL OF MY FATHER! Faith is known by works!
  • Mild Bill
    A disciple, To enter heaven by your own work is not of grace.Jesus did not simply make a down payment and you installments.You err in soteriology.You work, and so God owes you,or so you believe. Sadly I think of you and the multitudes working their way to heaven,misguided in pride. This format is not for personal discussion,henceforth,I will no longer respond to your messages.
