This may be hard for you to understand, so ponder before replying.

1Jn 3:9-10 KJV
(9) Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth
in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
(10) In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the
devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that
loveth not his brother.

Jas 1:27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To

I do not add it too "true religion". True religion stands on its own. It is
God ordained, and it operates solely from Love, at least to those that
truly love God. It cannot be tied into any organizations in such a way as
to declare themselves righteous in any fashion.

You might declare something I say as a heresy to your understandings but

I oppose their heresies, all of which the Bible addresses.

Nope. Any religion that would want to appear Godly would glom onto "true
religion" in order to appear as an angel of light. The mormon's would
appear to be the best at following it on the surface. Yet I'd bet there are
more hypocrites to their doctrines in their temples than most any other
religion/cult.

The Believer is called to have a relationship direct with God the Father
through Jesus Christ His Son. A direct and personal relationship. Each
individual as if they were the only one that existed is how deeply He cares
for us.

Yet I would far rather seem to be naive and follow Him for when I am weak,
then am I strong.

Jam 1:27a Pure religion and undefiled before our God and

So, if I not only visit, but also assist the fatherless and widows
in their affliction

Yet, I am not "born again", am I a part or one of the "true religion"?


Jam 1:27c and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.

What defines that by which one is "spotted" by the world?

If I also, am *not* "born again", yet am unspotted by the
world, am I a part or one of the "true religion"?


You claim above that "true religion" stands on it's own.
Thus, it is not required that one is "born again", nor even
that needs to believe in your "Jesus" character.

Can I be a part of the "true religion", and reject your
"Jesus" character as well as not be "born again"?


And let's not forget:

Jam 1:25 But he that looketh into the perfect law, the law
of liberty, and so continueth, being not a hearer that forgetteth
but a *doer that worketh,* this man shall be blessed in his doing.

Jam 1:26 If any man thinketh himself to be religious, while he
bridleth not his tongue but deceiveth his heart, this man's religion
is vain.

I would suggest you take verse 26 to heart. For you have a
little work to do in that regard.

James makes no such stipulation that one *must* also
be "born again".

I know many people who say they "believe", who are
clearly not "born again", but *do* James 1:27.

And I, do not fault them.

You are attributing anyone doing James 1:27 ***without***
being "born again", as doing it *for* themselves.

You are an idiot.

You *clearly* add the stipulation that it is *only* the
"true religion" for those "born again".

However, I am not sure you are able to honest enough,
with even yourself, as to admit as much. Let alone to
be honest enough to admit it to others.

Like having a beer? Ewwww, da boogey-man's

So, dropping a quarter in a jukebox or a pinball
machine, that one must be spotted by the world!!!

LMFAO!

Hell! We all know those pinball machines are

So, you are indeed stipulating, adding or tagging on that
it is not the true religion unless you are also "born again".

And no! Unlike you, I would be resting upon shabat.

And *again*, you prove my point. That it is *not* the
"true religion" unless one *also* meets the criteria that
you are adding or tagging on to it.

So, in order to be a part of the "true religion", you have
stipulated two "tags".

Nope. Any religion that would want to appear Godly would
glom onto "true religion" in order to appear as an angel of light.

Not at all. Yet, you did indeed "glom" onto it. And you

The mormon's would appear to be the best at following it on
the surface. Yet I'd bet there are more hypocrites to their
doctrines in their temples than most any other religion/cult.
I don't see them as any better, nor any worse.
I have a lot of friends who are hard core, and other who are
so-so because their families always were that. Friday nights
you can see a steady stream of cars leaving Salt Lake heading
west to Vegas, or Heading north to the Indian reservations.
Sunday they all poor back in town, and they were not on
missionary trips either. LOL
Some "sins" are obvious. But those which really should
worry you, are the ones that are not obvious to you. Some

The Believer is called to have a relationship direct with God
the Father through Jesus Christ His Son. A direct and personal
relationship.
So, the "true religion", requires more than simply James 1:27.
You are saying as much here. Thus, like I said, you also
tag things unto it.
So, must I also be "born again", to be part of the "true religion"?
To receive any reward in the next life for it you do.
LMFAO!!! There you go again. Proving, that you add
or tag unto it. You are adding an *imperative* stipulation
to it. Anything less, than your perception, and the imperative
stipulation that you also include with it, is not a "true religion".

To have faith one must be a believer. To be born again one must have been
given faith by God. In order for rewards to be heavenly one must be born
again and do the works of God.

Anyone can do the works for works sake and they would receive rewards for
them in this life, and if they end up in hell just how could they claim a
heavenly reward if there were any?

No, I added nothing, this is what is taught in the NT, just like "This day
I set before you a blessing and a curse" from the beginnings of the works
of the law. It is a spiritual happening. Has not one thing to do with me, I
cannot add nor subtract from Gods will and His promises unto us.

True religion stands on its own. It is God ordained,
and it operates solely from Love, at least to those
that truly love God. It cannot be tied into any
organizations in such a way as to declare themselves
righteous in any fashion.
Jam 1:27a Pure religion and undefiled before our God
and Father is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in
their affliction
So, if I not only visit, but also assist the fatherless and
widows in their affliction
Yet, I am not "born again", am I a part or one of the
"true religion"?
You are doing the things of "true religion". If you do it for
yourself then that is your reward.
James makes no such stipulation that one *must* also
be "born again".
I know many people who say they "believe", who are
clearly not "born again", but *do* James 1:27.
And I, do not fault them.
No one can play both sides of the street, there is a way that seems
righteous to a man, but the end thereof is death. If one is not told and
they fall into death and you held the key to eternal life would you not
share some of the blame? Freely received, freely give. I am also faulting
the belief systems of some. They didn't make it up but they sure were
conned into believing whatever it was.

When the world unites under on religion, I will be one of the ones you

Jam 1:27c and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.
What defines that by which one is "spotted" by the world?
One that partakes of worldly things on occasion, trying to
be one of the fellows when helping out.
Like what. Be specific.
Like having a beer? Ewwww, da boogey-man's
in da "spirits" o de alcohol.
So, dropping a quarter in a jukebox or a pinball
machine, that one must be spotted by the world!!!
LMFAO!
Hell! We all know those pinball machines are
really demon possessed! And those "jukeboxes"
making the sound of a human voice. Gee, ain't
no person in that box, it must be witchcraft!!!
You better burn that there thing son!!!
Ludicrious? Perhaps.
Yet, there are many who have thought as much.
That you would even think such a thing shows where your head is at.

You'd be no different that the typical RCC'er that followed
their rites and rituals, confessing on Sun and sinning Mon
thru Sat.
So, you are indeed stipulating, adding or tagging on that
it is not the true religion unless you are also "born again".
And no! Unlike you, I would be resting upon shabat.
"As God did from His" [cf Heb 4:10].
Fine for you, but what has that to do with me? Every day is unto the Lord.
When one works, employed, do it as unto the Lord. I can rest from my works,
since not one work that I do can add to the righteousness of God imputed to
me. Now I can focus on what He tells me to do. I need to listen best I can,
to him. He will work in me both to want and to do His will.

You claim above that "true religion" stands on it's own.
Thus, it is not required that one is "born again", nor even
that needs to believe in your "Jesus" character.
Can I be a part of the "true religion", and reject your
"Jesus" character as well as not be "born again"?
Anyone can be a pretender
LMFAO!!!
And *again*, you prove my point. That it is *not* the
"true religion" unless one *also* meets the criteria that
you are adding or tagging on to it.
So, in order to be a part of the "true religion", you have
stipulated two "tags".

Doing means little or a lot, depending on the state of
the heart.
Yet, there are those who are "pure of heart", who indeed
do as much, who believe in your "Jesus", but are not
"born again" per your definition / understanding.
Born Again is an understanding of God and His will. Jesus said "you must be
born again". Look at all the ways people try to make that happen, but they
cannot. It is not of works lest any man boast, and anyone who wants to get
in by doing it there way is seeking to control the situation. Look at you,
right now you are living life your way. Not Gods, and by denying that there
is no God does not release you from your responsibility to yourself and
God. Nothing you can do will earn you points of rewards in Heaven if you
had any idea of covering your bets. All mans works are as filty rags,
period. Let that man not deceive himself and thing he will receive of God
for any works.

Any atheist who follows "true religions" is a true goody, goody.

No, because my heart and soul are with God, and pleasing him. I am being

The gifts of the spirit is one area that they squashed and in

I see more as I grow, what is to fault with that? Some grow in certain
areas faster than others. God deals with us as individuals, we are not
clones of each other even if there are broad similarities. One a foot, one

any other reason. You sure aren't doing it for God, and
you aren't doing it out of a loving nature.
LMFAO!!!

Ah, so, assuming that *perhaps* I do so, and who knows,
given my unloving nature, I may not do so.

But assuming, that I do so, what do I get out of it?

Nothing. I am just a little poorer, or I have a little less.

What reward do I get?

Is God going to bless and reward an unloving atheist?

Oh, and BTW: I have *never* taken a tax credit
for donations. Now, does that mean that I have
never donated, or that I have never taken advantage
of or used such.

You *clearly* add the stipulation that it is *only* the
"true religion" for those "born again".
However, I am not sure you are able to honest enough,
with even yourself, as to admit as much. Let alone to
be honest enough to admit it to others.
I understand it at a far different level than yourself.
Well, hopefully, you might reach my level someday!

Judaism was a true religion, ordained by God with an
expected outcome. How can you in any way relate the
two?
Who is the "root"? Who was grafted into what?

That you go as far as you do, to divorce yourself
from the root, only leaves you in the cold.

So, if Judaism was a "true religion", then the widow
who offered the mite, without being "born again",
demonstrates that lack of adding the stipulation of
being "born again" to it. Just as the "Samaritan",
loved his neighbor, even though Samaritans were
considered as "profane", not unlike that manner in
which you see me.

What defines that by which one is "spotted" by the world?
One that partakes of worldly things on occasion, trying to
be one of the fellows when helping out.
Like what. Be specific.

So, dropping a quarter in a jukebox or a pinball
machine, that one must be spotted by the world!!!

Anything can be taken to an excess. Like eating. The only
reason I wouldn't be doing any of those things would be if
it offended you.
I am not your "brother", but I am your "neighbor".

And yes, your eating of that which is tame' I find to
be offensive. As either an atheist, or when I was a
"believer". But, you didn't care enough when I was
a "brother / believer", thus, did you cause me to
stumble and fall?

I find your anomia to also be highly offensive for one
that claims to be a "born again" "believer". Again, I
found such offensive, as both a "brother / believer",
and as an atheist.

Not at all.

you can't, or won't see that you do, is your issue.

You claim that your "Bible" elsewhere states you *must*

Yeah, that sounds like a mere "goody, goody".
Not a man moved of true compassion for his

Speaking of which, as an atheist, am I not in need
of true and pure "spiritual" food? Yet, you have

not offered me real food or drink.

Nor, have you offered to pay for my care, but rather,
you have judged that I am "unloving", and thus not
worthy of your care.

You are acting in the same manner as those who passed

(No "good Samaritan" you! No doubt you'd have been one to cross the street to avoid helping the poor beaten man in Luke 10:33-37 because he didn't believe as you do.) So it sounds likely you don't feel you have to help anyone because you make it very clear here that you think you're the only one with the Holy Spirit (which is proof positive you've never received it). You attempt to exalt yourself and debase others with nearly every post. No one will ever accuse you of being "humble".

I was never a part of her.
Where do you think the English versions of the Bible came from? The RCC
translated the Septuagint and NT Greek texts into Latin.
This is typical of you. Has nothing to do with the bibles I read.
Then your bibles are not valid.
Neither are yours according to those standards.
My guys canonized the original. Throw your kjv away and get you a good
bible.

Even though your guys are still making up bibles, and have many conflicting
versions you have your faith misplaced. Your guys pretended to canonized.

The Tyndale Bible generally refers to the body of biblical translations by
William Tyndale. Tyndale’s Bible is credited with being the first English
translation to work directly from Hebrew and Greek texts. Furthermore it was
the first English biblical translation that was mass-produced as a result of
new advances in the art of printing. The term Tyndale's Bible is not
strictly correct, because Tyndale never published a complete Bible. Prior to
his execution Tyndale had only finished translating the entire New Testament
and roughly half of the Old Testament. Of the latter, the Pentateuch, Jonah
and a revised version of the book of Genesis were published during his
lifetime. His other Old Testament works were first used in the creation of
the Matthew Bible and also heavily influenced every major English
translation of the Bible that followed.

This is true up until the other versions within the last 150 years or so.
Now with all the paraphrased and hybrid versions coming out almost daily
one needs to be wise.

Anything after the Original 1611 KJV/With Apocrypha has been altered to
accommodate some particular
Daughter of Rome's [Protestant Denomination] Pet slant on "Men's"
Doctrines.
Rome has a fondness for their hacked to pieces version of the KJ Bible, in
any deviated version, the Douay–Rheims Bible.

(No "good Samaritan" you!
Ahh, you beat me to it. I was going to respond using
that to one of his points. But, I shall use it in response
anyway. As well as a few things that you have already
stated. Call it a "second" witness.

I was a sinner, you are a sinner my your own
admission. Go back and read it again. The Bible,
the Word of God Trumps ALL religions.
But it doesn't trump "verbal". You yourself indicated
that verbal is greater than "Scripture".

And I quote:

"Verbal > scripture"
[/quote]

verbal, is greater than, Scripture.

Even your choice of capitalization is indicative.
And no, it is *not* because it is the beginning
of a sentence, for your previous sentence, was
not capitalized.

I heard "God" say that the "Jesus" you follow was
a charlatan. Thus, if "verbal > Scripture", that
trumps anything you say.

Tis dangerous ground ...

Well, you definitely buggered that one up real good.
You took it out of context, I looked because I know that is not something I
do. All said of God must not contradict His word, the Bible.

The same way I always do, I ask Him. He answered.
Verbally? Via "Scripture"? Casting lots?

I ask noted First, His answer method?
He never negates His word.

Did I? Was your answer to my question clear,
or was it vague, and left open to "interpretation".

When you give me a vague answer, I am going
to do the same with it *every* time.

So, would you care to share verbatim the last

Are you asking me a question regarding your
own answer?

So, when you provide such a vague response,
to one so, what did you say ... one so spiritually
blinded as myself. What do you expect.

Besides, "greater than" is a viable reading
of that which you wrote. Given that you
did not elaborate to make your answer
clear in the first place.
Post by Pete
He never negates His word.
Does He now? So, how come you keep making
claims that you can not substantiate regarding His
Word.

If He never negates His Word, what excuse
do you have for not submitting to it. For not
upholding the law.

Why do you yourself, make His Word void.

I ask you for an answer, you gave me some vague
response. Of which, based upon the overall of that
which I have read from you, the manner in which I
have taken it, was not out of line from my perspective.

Besides, you should know by now, that I shall take
your statements and "overstate" them, to make a point.

devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that

No sin.
And in order to not sin, one does not transgress the law.
For those who sin, also transgress the law.

Your own "Jesus" character, consistently affirmed to
uphold the law. As did Paul, in the simple statement:

Romans 3:31 Do we then nullify the law by this faith?
Not at all! Rather, we uphold the law.

My father beat his wife, and taught me, that is true love.
And that if I truly loved my wife, I would likewise beat her.

What is "love"? What defines "love"?


What is there about your life, by which one would know by
your life and lifestyle, your love for your "God". Something
by which they would know you love your "God", which is
does not fall under, nor is covered, by love your neighbor?
