Discussion for John 3

  • Barbara Gaytan
    I believe that god gave his son to save us from sin and he died on that rugged cross to save us from hell! That's how much he loved us to die for us so why do we not live for him? I love him with all my heart soul body mind and spirit! He's my best friend that never left me when my earthly friends did. He's my everything!
  • A disciple
    Stand a man; you wrote: "What sins each of us may or may not be guilty of is irrelevant..." That is completely contrary to all that God teaches and commands us, to REPENT of sins and forsake idols! Jesus has broken the chains that held us under bondage to sin, and gives us the light of life and His Spirit to grow in grace and knowledge of Him. Sin is MOST RELEVANT for it will deceive and destroy!
  • Alex
    Dis. All johns disciples had to be rebaptised with the H.G. IN ACTS 17 JESUS DISCIPLES HAD TO SHOW JOHNS DISCIPLES A MORE PERFECT WAY, John himself asked jesus saying I have NEED to be BAPTISED of YOU .John said behold the lamb of God that taketh away the sins of the world. not h20.All of the disciples had been water baptised but jesus tells them if i wash thee not you will have no part with me.
  • A disciple
    Stand a man; if as you say, everyone who doesn't believe in Jesus is evil; what does that make the one who tells the unbeliever or unclean, "Stand by yourself, away from me; for I am holier than thou!" The difference between the one who comes to the light, and those who don't; is that our deeds may be manifest; that we give an honest accounting to God, like Abel; and show God our trust in Christ!
  • A disciple
    Alex; There is no competition between Baptism and the Cross! Neither Jesus nor any of the Apostles ever told anyone that had been Baptized by John, that they were in danger of forfeiting the benefits of His Redemptive Sufferings! If we are not Baptized into Christ, and into the Father, and into the Spirit; then we are none of His; and in no wise in a condition to be Baptized with fire and Spirit!
  • A disciple
    Stand a man; I understand very much your enthusiasm; but you will find as you go on with the Lord, that there are some serious and important inconsistencies in your thinking just now. Jesus said to the disciple; those who forsook all and were following Him, and loved Him; If you then BEING EVIL know how to give good things to your children..." If we say we have no sin we deceive ourselves. HONESTY
