Discussion for John 8

  • A disciple
    Eric (cont.); If you accept something that you have been offered, you say yes to it or agree to take it. If you accept a plan or an intended action, you agree to it and allow it to happen. The problem however arises from the lazy and self-centered T.V. watching mentality of our modern generation, that makes us view everything in a merely passive NON-participatory state of mind; while we MUST act!
  • A disciple
    Dear Eric; I understand very well your reference Scripture, and how we MUST "receive" Jesus. But I strongly DISAGREE with the ultra popular contemporary notion which directs people to "Accept" Jesus into their darkened and alienated by nature lives, with absolutely NO mention or even a basic teaching about repentance and CONVERSION. We have to follow the Lord's own teaching about what we must do.
  • Eric
    Rev 3:20. Accepting Jesus into your heart IS scriptural. Please, everyone, be careful what you claim is scriptural or not. Read John 5:39. Of course we need to repent to have salvation, but sometimes we need Jesus in our hearts to do so. "Neither do I condemn you, go and sin no more". First Jesus does not condemn, THEN, tells her to repent.
  • BSP
    Verse 29: Jesus always did what was pleasing to his father even when it was difficult for him.
  • A disciple
    (continuing) "Accepting Jesus into your heart" IS NOT REPENTANCE! It started with being afraid to hurt peoples' feelings or get them mad; it started with a cowardly watering down of the Word of the cross of Christ in order to supposedly bring people to the Lord "easier:" but it is a false gospel about another Jesus! It is God's way to first convict of sin and THEREBY lead to repent and convert!
  • A disciple
    (continuing) "When we come to Jesus in the first place; isn't it because we are scared and ashamed because of our sins, and we are looking for Jesus to rescue us from ourselves?" Here then we have to ask, How did you come to Jesus? What did you pray? or rather, How were you led to pray? Words DO matter! The very popular, but UNSCRIPTURAL, "Accepting Jesus into your heart" IS NOT REPENTANCE!
