Discussion for Luke 12

  • Stephende
    This is the truth on steroids. God is a heart knower. He kniws that all are in sin. Christians misconstrue that Jesus exonerated us on the cross. Do you really think that he died so as to prevent us from striving against the Devil. He has forewarned us that all must watch which means we must search our own hearts for the evil therein. Judge for yourself the times. Our leader is an evil liar

    To Lew on Lk. 12:42-47 -- The 'servant' is the pastor/minister of a church. The house is the church/people. These vs. are similar to Rev. 1:20 where the "angels' of the 7 churches are the pastors.
  • Bruce
    Lew:Hebrews 10:10-15,v:12-- offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God;--John 6:44 No man can come to me, except the Father--draw him:--1John 1:9 ask forgiveness--Matthew 3:11 baptized with fire:--2nd Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature old things are passed away;behold all things are become new. You will know!
    Sin again 1John1:9

    to Lew - not sure what you're asking, did JESUS die for our/your/my sin? His sacrifice was only a sin offering as in Leviticus, to cleanse us of our sin before the LORD, opening the way for all of us to salvation, grace is the LORD's gift, you are given a choice then, forward or back. However, there will still be a reckoning, we must each of us present ourselves to the LORD, just my opinion.

    IM ASSURE THAT THAT THE RAVEN IS A NASTY BIRD AND THAT GOD WILL PROVIDE FOR US IF WE JUST HOLD ON AND TRUST HIM BECAUSE HE LOVES US I LOVE THE GOD HE IS MY FATHER AND GOD LOOKS AT US BETTER THEN FOWLS AND WE NEED TO HAVE FAITH IN UDERSTANDING FOR HIS LOVE FOR US TO HES A ONTIME GOD.
