    Why does every Christian not being taught the Gospel
  • Gigi - in Reply on Matthew 7
    Boniface,

    God did work a wonder in bringing forth our country. Our country offers an individual the greatest freedoms of any country in the history of the world. We should hope to preserve it and make it better than what it has regressed to become.

    I am dismayed by the hatred aimed against our country and the strong and good foundations on which it was built. I pray tat God can bring revival to our country and set it aright once again to be a shining beacon of hope (the gospel) and "light" (of Christ) to the world. I remember President Ronald Reagan well the way he uplifted the view of our country in a positive and helpful way. May God raise up a President for us who will be led by righteous principles and faith in God.

    Our country was created by much blood, sweat, and tears. It has been preserved by much blood, sweat, and tears. It may need to be restored by much blood, sweat, and tears, as well. Let us labor in prayer for our country.
  • Boniface on Matthew 7
    Do not give away what is most precious to those who would destroy it.

    Our country is precious to us, so let's not give it away to those who hate it and want it destroyed.

    If we do, they will end up tearing us and our civilization apart.

    Tell this to all those liberal "Christians" who support open borders!

    Sheila you are wrong water baptisim does not save, only the blood

    of jesus christ. col 1-14 in whom we have redemtion through his

    blood even the forgiveness of sins, not water but the blood saves sinners, the thief

    on the cross did not need water he needed the blood of jesus christ to forgive

    him, once you have been born again spiritually you will want to obey gods

    commands of baptisim but it does not save you from hell, repent and believe the

    gospel saves the sinner, churches are teaching you false teaching you are either

    oneness heresy or church of christ heresy. repent of this lie. heb 9-22 without the shedding

    of blood there is no forgiveness of sins.
  • Sheila Middleton on Matthew 7
    To be born again you have to be baptized.first believing that Jesus is the Son of God.then baptized in Holy Spirit in water.then you will be added to the Churchill teaches that in the book of Acts chapter2

    Hi Sarah.

    Lets put this verse in context.

    In the previous verses the Lord is speaking of false teachers and how to identify them. -

    Matthew 7:15-21. Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

    Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

    Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

    A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

    Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

    Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

    Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

    In verse 22 he gives the contrast of the deceptive vain works of those mentioned.

    If you noticed the Lord never challenged them in their proclaimed works

    The Emphasis is being deceived!

    He said I NEVER knew you.

    You see in the scripture unbelievers prophesying.

    EXAMPLE: John 11:49-51. And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all,

    Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.

    And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation;

    This group in verse 22 was NEVER saved!

    Jesus says I NEVER new you.

    It's not what you know, It's who you know and who knows you!

    John 10:26-28. But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.

    ( MY SHEEP HEAR MY VOICE, AND I KNOW THEM, and they follow me:)

    And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

    Your fruit reflects what has been changed on the inside.

    God bless.

    Thank you for helping me. I am a born again believer and trying to understand more of God's word so that I can grow and be in His will.
  • Sarah Wilson - in Reply on Matthew 7
    Thank you so much. I went back to Matthew 7 and reread verse 22 and I see it now. This will trach me to slow down and notice what I am reading a lot closer. I appreciate that you answered so quickly.
  • Fred Scanlan - in Reply on Matthew 7
    "Casting out Satan" . A witness who loves Christ and His words will do much more than cast out satan. You are not of the world, if you are a true believer in the gospel, you will cast out even demons! Unaware you may be of these things, you are bringing a soul closer to His redeemer! Opening the eyes, that live in darkness! You are a child of God!

    God Bless you Sarah!
  • English Sacha - in Reply on Matthew 7
    If you read carefully ,Jesus is saying that that is what those people say they have done . Just because they say that they have done those things doesn't mean that they have done those things . They claim that they have cast out devil's and done marvelous works . Jesus obviously knows better .
  • Sarah Wilson on Matthew 7
    Matthew

    22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

    How can a person cast out devils in Jesus name and be sinful ?

    Matthew 7.23

    Jesus knows those that follow him and obey his voice now and forever .

    Unfortunately there are many that follow a different Jesus and they do not find out until Matthew 7.23

    Don't be fooled by them or there claims , just do what Jesus of the bible says and do not make a show of it like Pharisees.

    Replying to The User name "Jesus knows"

    Regarding Matthew 7

    Good scripture to ponder...

    John 3:16,17 this scripture reaches.

    Jehovah is glad Psalms 83:18. In Harmony with

    the well thought out scripture at Matthew 7

    Thanks for sharing with us

    AG Peterson The person playing with a full deck is Jesus Christ all others are cheating, and the only way to know Him is through Gods Word, He is the True Shepherd, John 10:9+10 The thief cometh not but for to steal and to kill and to destroy I am come that they might have life and have it more abundantly. In Gospel of John 17:17 Sanctify them through thy word, thy word is truth. There's no other source for truth Gods Word makes known Christ. God Bless

    Hi AG Peterson.

    Throw those cards in the trash!! They will be harmful to you!!

    1 Timothy 2:5. For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

    AG Peterson Angel cards Throw them out!
  • Sacha - in Reply on Matthew 7
    Please destroy them and throw them away . They can be a terrible temptation to you or any one who finds them . I don't really want to go into details but feel I owe you an explanation for my strong reaction . I know that God is King , His rule is supreme . I also know that I can't even pick up a deck of ordinary playing cards and I know things about people that they have never told me . That's as far as I'm going with this except to say , please , destroy them and throw them away now . Never have anything to do with any one who says they are psychic or a medium or spiritualist .

    Connie,

    This comes from Matthew chapter 7. Jesus said in Verse 24, "Whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and does them, (notice the emphasis is hearing the sayings of Jesus), He says the sayings of Mine; and does them, I will liken him to a wise man that built his house upon a rock."

    And by the way the word rock used here is the word (PETRA), the same thing that Jesus told Peter, and we see that in Chapter 16 where Jesus says "Upon this rock I will build my church."

    It wasn't Peter! Peter is (PETROS). PETRA is a completely different word which refers to Christ. He is the PETRA. It is the designation for Christ and His word in scripture. So Jesus says that everybody that hears these saying of mine and does them will be like a wise man that built his house upon a rock and when the storm comes (which is judgment), his house will stand.

    In Verses 26 and 27, Jesus is saying everybody that hears these words of mine. Jesus is making Himself the authority. He didn't say to them, I just gave you a commentary on the law. He says, everybody that listens to these words of mine, and does them. But He tells them that those who do not do them, their house is going to fall. Oh my goodness, that is not going to sit too well with the religious people who are listening to Him speak!

    Matthew 7

    24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

    25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

    26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the SAND:

    27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
  • Ronny on Matthew 7:22
    What's important is doing the will of the father is my take on this .

    Many going about doing things their way . They had no connection to God what so ever , deceived and deceiving. There was no cure for them . So beware they do not follow Gods instructions. Seek to be wise and follow , remember most are on the wide and broad way that leads to destruction.

    TLDR ? What is that please ?
  • John J - in Reply on Matthew 7:2
    I am of the opinion that there is one crime, I welcome the discussion.

    Theft/stealing

    No other gods: theft of attention.

    No other idols: attention.

    No vain use of God's name: no theft of God's invocation, ceremonious only.

    No work or direct theft of services on Sabbath.

    Honor your parents or your land and life will be stolen.

    Do not murder: theft of life.

    Adultery is theft of Love/exchange of Love for lust.

    No stealing: see above and below

    No false witness: stealing another's opportunity to have the truth heard

    No covet: falls back on adultery, idols and gods.

    The further commandments and can also be reduced to either greed which is the motivation for theft.

    theft is bad.

    TLDR: Theft is the only sin.
