Discussion for John 19

  • Noel
    Judas betrayed Jesus Peter did not. Judas had a divided heart.
    Peter did not .
  • A disciple
    Jeff (cont. 2); Besides, every true Christian wants everyone to come to repentance, and find the mercy and grace of salvation: we want everyone to know the Lord Jesus like we know Him, and be blessed. But we have to be realistic; just like God is realistic: at a certain point even God has to let men have what they really want; and when they DON'T WANT JESUS OR HIS SPIRIT; then they are damned!
  • A disciple
    Jeff (cont.); You start out nice in your last post, but what don't you agree with? Can't you see a difference in the kinds of sins that men do? Jesus even said, that "ALL MANNER OF SINS SHALL BE FORGIVEN TO THE SONS OF MEN; BUT THE BLASPHEMY OF THE SPIRIT SHALL NEVER BE FORGIVEN: NEITHER IN THIS WORLD OR THE NEXT!" My view is that Judas' sin was against the Spirit, and he was rejected!
  • A disciple
    Jeff; I wasn't offended, Brother! I'm glad if I could help. As there aren't many who like to talk about such dreadful things as falling into sin, and outright betrayal of Christ; and what are the differences in sins, that like the Apostle John says; some we pray for and some we do not; some are unto death and some are not! Considering the matter of Peter and Judas is very important for all of us.
  • Jeff Berry
    Disciple, I think I understand now. I did not intend to offend you or disrespect Peter. But I don't think we are going to agree on this one. For that reason this will be my last post on this particular subject. I believe that we all are guilty of crucifying our Lord because "all have sinned...". (You, me, Peter and Judas). I want everyone to know via repentance, they too can enjoy God's grace!
  • A disciple
    Jeff; Blessings to you too! I'm so grateful for this chance to talk about the things of the Lord. Whether we are discussing points of doctrine, or meanings of words; or if we run into disagreements or false teachings; it causes us to sharpen our understanding and skill in the Word of God; and thereby examining and confirming ourselves and each other, growing in grace and the knowledge of Jesus.
