Mat 7:21 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.
Mat 7:22 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?
Mat 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Because I believe that I am saved and cannot lose my salvation, after taking him to many verses about eternal security, salvation by grace, and the purity of Gods word, he offered me a beer and laughed saying "I'll bet you think that's wrong of me too"
I summed up his beliefs for him and asked his name at which point he told me he was marvelous mike. My summary of his faith and sadly the faith of so many who stain* (oops i mean claim) the name of Christ is simple.
The verses and doctrines from the Bible that make sense to me, that I agree with, and like are considered "gods word" but everything else is not inspired, not important, or not true, the verses that I misuse* (oops I mean use) to "prove" my point couldn't be taken out of context by me, but rather you preacher are the one taking Gods word (which I only believe parts of) out of context. Don't you dare use the bible to show me my error or prove your point because that makes me feel dumb, I will pick and chose what I want out of the bible, I will take some and leave some, and don't you dare challenge my "Christian" life @@refer to my post "quotation mark Christians"@@@
Sadly this is not uncommon in today's America, we pervert the bible on a regular basis to fit our own fleshly desires and we call it "christian". What every true Bible believing Christian in America needs to do today is get off the couch and into the streets proclaiming the TRUTH from Gods word the King James Bible, and perhaps, just maybe people will run into less "marvelous mikes" and more True Christians.
