Re: Making Your Calling and Election Sure

No sooner did I finish this thought than I myself had a spiritual experience that was more profound than any other I had ever received to that point in my life. My heart was on fire! The intensity of this sensation had me crouch over and reach for that burning area. It did not hurt but truly was an...

Re: Making Your Calling and Election Sure

Isn't this an ordinance? IMHO having your C&E made sure is not something you seek after. I believe it's as literal as this verse: Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ, and endure to the end, behold, thus saith the Father: Ye shall have eternal life . We can see...

I think from what I've quoted we can agree that he has made it about simply asking for this. While they never suggest that you 'sit on your behind and arrogantly demand it' there is no suggestion that maybe you have not qualified for this in your life yet. I'm just quoting them, I haven't paraphras...

Re: Making Your Calling and Election Sure

Making one's calling and election sure is not something you decide to simply ask for and continue to ask until you get an answer. Amonhi's step 3 shows that he would absolutely agree with you on this. Maybe I've overlooked something, since I'm not one of his followers and haven't read a lot of his ...

you are the one that will suffer the consequences for not keeping the confidences that the Lord has entrusted you with, not me. This is called "begging the question." Are you privy to what God commands those who have had theirs? Are you sure that's what He's telling them? Nothing you've s...

It strikes me as quite strange to hear someone say that we shouldn't seek after and talk about what we were literally born to this earth to do.

If that's not bad enough, this is coming out now from former Planned Parenthood employees that they had abortion quotas. Exceeding them earned them rewards: pizza parties, paid time off, lunches with upper management.
