that makes sense actually.. its not much of a disdain but i just like to hear from  people... its all personal opinions is all...
esp  after hearing everyone tell me  to look in the dictionary for a definition at home. I just want an opinion or a simple answer and that my friend if i may call you that is a simple answer
If you are referring to this response from memyself :" We must confess with our mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe with all our hearts that God raised Him from the dead to be saved" then that is not quite correct.

That is a very simplistic form that is not entirely Biblical and ignore large swathes of the Bible.

Peace and All Good

 Actually its entirely Biblical.
In Him I live and move and have my being.

My determined purpose is that I may know Him - that I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him, perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of His Person more strongly and more clearly."

It is by Grace we have been saved though Faith and not by works so that no one can boast.

LOL!  Thank you!  I was thinking to myself...how is it NOT entirely biblical, when it IS the word? Romans 10:9 after all! 

Here are the verses that surround it as well

 8 But what does it say? “The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,

After all, all that the thief on the cross did was to believe that Jesus was a King with a kingdom, and he asked that Jesus would remember Him when he came into His kingdom, and he was saved!!!(I just LOVE that story) Sometimes humans like to add things that just arent needed or even in the Bible.

Faith without action still results in Death.

So exactly what kind of ministry do you perform to further God's Kingdom?
I wanna die like grandpa, peacefully and in my sleep; not like the passengers in his car...they were all screaming and panicking.

Still *results* in death (as in the wages of sin kind of death?) or faith without works *is* dead? (as in a dead faith, unable to please God?)


If one is living in the light of "whatever you do, do it for the glory of God"...THAT is ministry and has potential to further the Kingdom.
Have you been cursed in line at a grocery store, but blessed in return?  Kingdom potential
Are you someone who is quick to encourage others? Kingdom potential
Do you clean toilets after everyone else is gone from Church? Kingdom potential

Just because we can string some text together does not mean that our conclusions are Biblical.

 True..but that is not what happened.  I shared THE WORD, not my own thoughts.   ???

Assuming that what a particular passage says on the surface equates to the Word of God isn't Biblical either. Something is only Biblical when it lines up with all of Scripture in an intelligent and supportive way.

why does it have to be the word... why can't it be your thoughts every so often.  The word is a good one I agree the message is pure.  but why does the word have to be your only answer to anything?  I am sure for you it is the only answer but seems like the wizard of oz hiding behind his curtain.  I believe in god and know he is out there and he has some sort of reason for putting us here.  I just think that we will never truly hear his words...just what was interpreted to be his words.  I have read a passage or two of the bible and it comes off as some adventure story.  I was a big fan of the "left behind" book series which dealt with revelations and the glorious appearing, but mostly I liked it because the stories were entertaining more than anything to me.

I don't see any way the passage from Romans can be taken in any way other than what it says.  I DO see it lining up with the rest of scripture...

Salvation is for any who call upon the name of Christ and believe in all His claims about Himself.  He is the only way to the Father...
everything else (baptism, repentance, works) is to glorify God.

At least that's my conviction.

What are you talking about?  Every so often?  Most of what I have posted to you has been my own thoughts, so that makes NO sense at all!

 The word is a good one I agree the message is pure.  but why does the word have to be your only answer to anything?

The reason I said I had shared THE WORD was because it was called "not entirely biblical".  As to the rest of this, I'm not gonna defend any more than already have

 I am sure for you it is the only answer but seems like the wizard of oz hiding behind his curtain.  

Ok.

I believe in god and know he is out there and he has some sort of reason for putting us here.  I just think that we will never truly hear his words...just what was interpreted to be his words.  

Ok.

 I have read a passage or two of the bible and it comes off as some adventure story.  I was a big fan of the "left behind" book series which dealt with revelations and the glorious appearing, but mostly I liked it because the stories were entertaining more than anything to me.

if I took that out of context I am sorry. but it seems that as my wife says that all answers are given with scripture passages and some answers even seem to ignore issues.

OK. My only observation was that pasting passages does not by itself equate to "Biblical."

That's all.

So, when someone says "that's not Biblical" after you paste a passage, they're saying that they don't believe that you have adequately exegeted the passage from the whole of the Scriptural corpus. In the case of the recent discussion on this thread, I suspect Tradition would also be introduced as a shaping resource for understanding the topic.
