Discussion for Mark 9

  • A disciple
    Bruce; you said not too long ago, "No One comes to Christ until The Father Calls." Is there a time when God does not call; that men could excuse themselves for continuing in sins? Psalm 50:1 says, "The mighty God, even the LORD, hath spoken, and called the earth from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof." All they who are of the truth will hear Jesus' voice, through the WORD preached!
  • A disciple
    The word translated into the English, 'fool,' is literally 'moron' in the Greek. Jesus called the hypocrites, morons and blind. Jesus warned us all, that if we heard His words and didn't do them, we would be likened to a stupid man who without a foundation built his house on the sand. There is a right usage of words and names and the kinds of actions people take, and the things they believe.
  • Bruce
    I Believe The Father will Call Everyone at least once or some more. Why do you speak Evil of The Way of Salvation, and Calling People Morons? John 6:44 Says No One Comes to Christ until The Father Calls (a Tug on The Heart) You call that a False Gospel. The Pharisees also spoke Evil. Your Post say you know The Bible but need Salvation. Most are Saved by The Foolishness of Preaching. Last Call?
  • A disciple
    Bruce; Last Call! If any preach ANY OTHER gospel let him be accursed! The Lord Jesus Christ said, "Not every one that says unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that does the will of my Father which is in heaven." And then He goes on to say, that it is in the doing of "THESE MY WORDS" that prove us to be wise unto salvation, or morons who lose everything and perish!
  • A disciple
    How does one know the Scriptures, and teach the meaning of our Salvation in Jesus Christ having come in the flesh, according to the Scriptures; and not be saved and have the Holy Spirit? No one can say Jesus is Lord without the Holy Spirit. He that is not against us, is on our part. But there is no hope of salvation, or true foundation in Christ without knowing and obeying "ALL THESE HIS WORDS."
  • Bruce
    Many know The Bible,they can post many Scriptures. Preachers NOT Knowing The Savior,preach all through The Bible and don't know how to be Saved. Most in his flock follow him down a dark road. / How long will it take for one to be Saved studying The Bible, Days,Weeks,Months? Telling The Lost How to be Saved,The Father Calls,they can ask forgiveness not Knowing One Word of The Bible. Is He Tugging?
