Christ4EverYou are quite right aaroncam85. Sometimes either the thread has dissolved into two untenable positions that all that is left one to do, is to see if they can have the other person stop replying This becomes especially true when…..should I even bring it up?.........why not……when the subject is salvation by grace, works or both! Yikes! If scripture were bullets, we’d all be dead!
Yes Christ4Ever that is often the case.
Talk Jesus is an amazing ministry, reaching out worldwide to the saved and the unsaved...the aim should always be to write posts prayerfully to only ever glorify the name of the Lord, to proclaim His great love and mercy and the wonders of His grace and to share the unfailing promises found in His Word.
It is when puffed up self comes in that things go wrong.
Posts can become dominated with the proud 'I' rather than Christ.
(I'm not referring to prayer requests etc where 'I' is used)
We are nothing without Him
Less self more Jesus
Christ, only Christ, no idle word e'er falling,
Christ, only Christ, no needless bustling sound;
Christ, only Christ, no self-importance bearing,
Christ, only Christ, no trace of I be found.
Oh, to be saved from myself, dear Lord,
Oh, to be lost in Thee,
Oh, that it may be no more I,
But Christ that lives in me*
For no other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ
1 Corinthians 3:11
