"And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful. Opponents must be gently instructed, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth,  and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will". (2 Tim. 2:24-26)

Hey, wait a second. Let me read that again. You mean if God doesn't "grant" repentance they won't come to their senses?  But that sounds like PURE GRACE--if repentance is something that is "granted by God", that would mean God is the author and finisher of our faith.

Oh, wait a minute, the Bible does say that.   ::smile::

So you are trying to say Peter denying Christ was not a sin and therefore Peter would not be lost, even if he spent the rest of his life denying that He knew Christ, which was a lie?

You CANNOT take what is written and annex it and annotate it with a bunch of hypothetical scenarios, what if's and maybe's based on human wisdom and still believe it is the same Gospel of Christ!

THERE IS NO "WHAT IF" PETER CONTINUED TO DENY JESUS HIS ENTIRE LIFE!

THAT DIDN'T HAPPEN, IT ISN'T WRITTEN

WHAT HAPPENED IS JESUS LOVED HIM BACK INTO THE FOLD

BY HAVING HIM PROFESS HIS LOVE FOR JESUS

Changing the ending into a what if game of logic is

nothing but dumb human reasoning twisting God's word to fit into human understanding



So you are trying to say Peter denying Christ was not a sin and therefore Peter would not be lost, even if he spent the rest of his life denying that He knew Christ, which was a lie?

Why do you refuse to answer simple 'yes' or 'no' questions I ask?  If you really believe in ES then you would answer "yes".  Are you afraid to answer 'yes'?

Because your questions are based on Gomer's logic ...NOT THE WORD
