Discussion for John 19

  • 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.
  • A disciple
    Dear Jeff; I read again several times our little back and forth, and its simply about comparing Peter to Judas Iscariot. You said that they were going down the same path; I said that they were not at all, but completely different kind of men with completely different kind of hearts and characters. It is very important to know the differences for our business of saving with fear or with compassion.
