Discussion for John 11

  • A disciple
    This is an open invitation to everyone on this site, who believes they have a strong knowledge of the Bible: Where is it written, that we are to only accept Jesus as our personal Saviour, and ask Him to come into our lives? I say that this a false teaching, not based on the Glad Tidings preached by Jesus, the prophets or apostles; but one made up by modern impostors in the churches. Please answer!
  • Walter
    I see a few comments I find a little confusing concerning baptism and salvation. One receives the Holy Spirit at the moment of conversion, not baptism. Also, simply "believing" in Jesus is not salvation. Remember that the devil and his angels believe! It is repentance towards God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ..amen!
  • Zeingoff
    Jesus spoke of the Spirit concerning Laz. Therefore he let the death of the body occur. What! But he knew a demonstration of the power of God was necessary. It became a political tipping point as the High priests plotted his sacrifice to save their position in the Roman state
    Jesus certainly knew his fate and also knew he the Father who would stage these events for the sake of all the doubters
  • Irene123
    V. 10 - is yet another prophesy of Acts 2:38 - the receiving of the 'light' (Holy Ghost, after being baptized using the NAME of Jesus); altho' it is common to receive His spirit before water baptism, but water baptism has to be in there.
  • David Teer
    Why do men fear other men? We should fear who can judge our souls not humans. We must fear the grave as we fear the bed.
  • Irene123
    E. Ijioma - I wish you had given the scripture for the plan of salvation.
