Leave the explaining of my beliefs to me for accuracy. Next, since you consider me your enemy, all the more reason why you should be loving. Not doing so, and calling yourself a Christian at the same time, is the complete opposite of what it means to be a follower of The Lord. Yet, you say I'm the fake Christian...Claire wrote:As far as loving other Christians, I do. Claire has demonstrated to me that she is not a Christian at all. She is totally unable to give testimony to her conversion and new birth that Jesus, Himself, said is necessary for salvation. Her beliefs are in direct opposition to doctrine of salvation by grace. She believes Jesus' sacrifice at Calvary was insufficient to purchase our salvation. She believe people also have to do certain works to be saved. She also rejects the principle that to be saved a person has to accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. She thinks if a person loves others, that God will let them waltz right down the street of gold. Her beliefs are unscriptural and Hellish. So she is not my sister in Christ. She is promoting a false gospel and in doing so, she is my adversary.
"But I say to you, love your enemies" (Matthew 5:44)
"And if you love them that love you, what thanks are to you? for sinners also love those that love them. And if you do good to them who do good to you, what thanks are to you? for sinners also do this. And if you lend to them of whom you hope to receive, what thanks are to you? for sinners also lend to sinners, for to receive as much. But love ye your enemies: do good, and lend, hoping for nothing thereby: and your reward shall be great, and you shall be the sons of the Highest; for he is kind to the unthankful, and to the evil. Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful." (Luke 6:32-36)
"Dearly beloved, let us love one another, for charity is of God. And every one that loveth, is born of God, and knoweth God." (1 John 4:7)
