Host: Wesley Simons - Elizabethton, TN
Panel: Tim Phillips - Dean Of Instructors at the TCSOP & CD

E-Mail Question - Hi, I think that if anyone has been saved by the grace of God they will never be unsaved. Please read read Hebrews 6 and verse 4. Also, if a person is back out in sin after making a profession, then I believe they never got it to begin with. Fallen from grace, they never reached out and got a hold of it in the fiorst place. Also, I believe the rich man when saying "Father Abraham" was only in the natural realm just as Jesus was of David. The rich man and Lazarus was under the Law. And we know that under the Law, it didn't forgiven sins but rolled them back a year. Also, when Jesus told Nicodemus a man must be born of water and of the spirit, He was speaking of Himself, read John 19:34, not in the natural since of water baptism of saving a person. All scritures was given by inspiration which is through the Spirit and has to be understood the same way. I hope this will help with seeing the truth in these things, ...Signed

Letter - Hey Wesley, This is just a short note of apology for any iscommunication the other day on Arise To Truth. The call I was reffering to was the one where you called and referred to my e-mail as arrogant, but I did not perceieve it as an add homomine attack. As the conversation flowed you did tell me you think I am going to hell, but you admitted that on the air last week. Thought I don't agree with your ideas I can respect them. For to do otherwise would be dishonest since I respect all ideas as long as they do not bring harm to those emotionally, psychological or physically. It was not my intention to misrepent your views in anyway and I hope that you will continue to accept my right-hand of fellowship. I appreciate your candor and convictions to present the truth as you believe it on your radio program.

E-Mail Question - Dear Wesley Got a few questions for you today! 1, Who is to be the leader of the house once the husband passes/away? I know in the Old Testament that the husband's brother would be responable for her, and he was the one that would take athority over the house, but what about the New Testement? 2, If the wife has a son isn't he the one to take care of her, and take athority over the house or can any of her daughters run the house as they see fit? My mother is 75 years old and lets her drunken daughter run over her. I am wondering is this bibical because my mother does not want to condemn her for running over her and the rest of the people in the house. 3, Does this drunken daughter have any bibical authority to say or do this? 4, What is a son or other relatives do in this case? 5, What is the bibical answer? Can you give me some advice please? Can you deal with this on todays broadcast please? ... Love your program! If you have any questtions then you can write me through my facebook profile! Look forward to hearing from you on this subject! Think you! Let me jusst ask this question as well. What is every one else's responence be?

E-Mail Question - This is a quote from an article. I personally witnessed years ago a minister wrestle with a teen in a baptistry for over five minutes to get every inch of him wet. This teen had a terror of water and when he would go under he would grap the side of the baptistry and hold on. They practically whipped the water into a foam to get all of him wet. I know the intentions of this preacher was good but it seems to me that perhaps somewhere along the way he had failed to perceive the true purpose of immersion and i had become a sacrament which must be preformed with legal exactness before salvation could be confirmed. What are the chances that this baptism candidate did not have the right attitude by sins contacting the blood of Christ during this experience. I would say slim to none. He was concentrating on his on fear of the water. And according to your theology he did not truly get saved and is destined to hell because he did not get over his fear of water and have the proper mindset in water baptism.
Caller - What happens today if a person cannot get to water are they lost?
Caller - What the Bible says about baptism is absolutly right, and makes comments about baptism and Mark 16:16.

E-Mail Question in Consideration - Well Wesley, After about two years of hearing your false teaching on the radio I am through listening to it. Over the past time period I have discovered several false doctrines which you vehemently defend as God's Truth. Some of those false teachings are listed below for the benefit of your listening audience. 1) You deny "Faith Alone" for Salvation, even though you say you do believe in "Faith Alone". You just simply refuse to take Ephesians 2:8-9 literally and within context. You try, in essence, to use other Scripture to "prove" Ephesians 2:8-9 is wrong. 2) You deny "Once Saved, Always Saved". John 10:27-30 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. I and my Father are one. Key words:"I give", NOT "I will give", & "My Father which GAVE them me..."; NOT "which shall give them me". What about 1 John 5:11-13 And this is the record, that, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; , and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. Notice specifically: "God hath given to us eternal life", PAST TENSE, And "that ye may know that ye have eternal life" PAST TENSE. We have Eternal Life immediately at Salvation. 3) You deny that we are all born Sinners when you teach that new born babies are not sinners. Psalm 51:5, Psalm 58:3, Isaiah 48:8, & Romans 5:12. By the way, where is your "Book, Chapter, & Verse" proof texts that all people are born innocent????? 4) You deny that eternal life begins at the moment a person is Saved. Acts 13:48, & John 5:24 ("hath" is past tense, meaning it has already happened the moment a person is Saved; also "...is passed from death unto life." means it has already happened.) 5) You deny that the Holy Ghost permanently Indwells every believer from the moment of Salvation. This is truly the one Baptism referred to in Ephesians 4:5. You gloss over this by saying that God and Christ are also referred to as "being in us", however, the Bible specifically referes to the Holy Spirit as the person of the Trinity who actually Indwells every believer. Your claim that John 14, 15, & 16 is only referring to the Apostles being Indwelt by the Holy Spirit is totally wrong; other verses, such as 1st Corinthians 12:13, Romans 8:9-11 taken in proper, logical context, et al make it perfectly clear that ALL believers are permanently Indwelt by the Holy Spirit. Hebrews 2:3-4 make it perfectly clear that the signs and wonders given by the Holy Spirit was truly for the Apostles only, but as Scripture validates, the Baptism ("one Baptism") of the Holy Spirit is performed upon every believer at the moment of Salvation. We are not "commanded" to be Baptised by the Holy Spirit because, as Scripture teaches, the Baptism is performed instantly at Salvation. 6) You deny that there is a literal 1000 year reign of Jesus Christ here on Earth after His Second Coming. Revelation Chapter 20 proves you WRONG Wesley. 7) You deny that churches should have "Pastors", yet Ephesians 4:11 clearly mentions "pastors". 8) You falsely teach that "communion" should be taken every Sunday. First Corinthians 11:24-25 clearly does not specify a timetable. 9) You teach a "works based Salvation" which is totally contrary to the Bible. You take all the verses you use to support "works to keep your Salvation" totally out of the context within which they are found, as well as out of context with what the Bible has to say collectively regarding Salvation. WORKS ARE EVIDENCE TO THE WORLD THAT WE ARE SAVED, NOT TO PROVE TO GOD THAT WE ARE WORTHY OF HIS FORGIVENESS, Ephesians 2:10 "For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.". Our good works are part of our desire to be found well pleasing unto God, not to earn our Salvation. We continue to sin against God, and that's why God commands us to confess and repent when we do sin against Him, 1st John 1:9. I'm sure you will find a way to twist this letter around just like you do all the others. "...let God be true, but every man a liar;..", Romans 3:4. Sincerely in Christ;
Caller - What does it say about the church when an atheist is doing more than the church?;
Caller - The atheists friend is doing it for praise of men but not for the glory of God;
Caller - If a person has been baptized is a person saved when going to a denominational church.

Our good works are part of our desire to be found well pleasing unto God, not to earn our Salvation. We continue to sin against God, and that's why God commands us to confess and repent when we do sin against Him, 1st John 1:9. I'm sure you will find a way to twist this letter around just like you do all the others. "...let God be true, but every man a liar;..", Romans 3:4. Sincerely in Christ.

E-Mail Question - The Catholic Church believe that they are the one true church so does the Church of Christ. Wouldn't it be great if they would have a debate?;
A quick noite of commendation to Tim for; 1.) Not appearing to be as combative be over emphasizing words by duration and tone of voice. This makes him a more respectable apologist and 2.) For reaching the same conclusion in Acts 10 that the Scripture reaches that Peter commanded them to be baptized and did not command them to be baptized in order to contact the blood of Christ or receive remission of sins.
E-Mail Question in Consideration - Well Wesley, After about two years of hearing your false teaching on the radio I am through listening to it. Over the past time period I have discovered several false doctrines which you vehemently defend as God's Truth. Some of those false teachings are listed below for the benefit of your listening audience. 1) You deny "Faith Alone" for Salvation, even though you say you do believe in "Faith Alone". You just simply refuse to take Ephesians 2:8-9 literally and within context. You try, in essence, to use other Scripture to "prove" Ephesians 2:8-9 is wrong. 2) You deny "Once Saved, Always Saved". John 10:27-30 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. I and my Father are one. Key words:"I give", NOT "I will give", & "My Father which GAVE them me..."; NOT "which shall give them me". What about 1 John 5:11-13 And this is the record, that, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; , and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. Notice specifically: "God hath given to us eternal life", PAST TENSE, And "that ye may know that ye have eternal life" PAST TENSE. We have Eternal Life immediately at Salvation. 3) You deny that we are all born Sinners when you teach that new born babies are not sinners. Psalm 51:5, Psalm 58:3, Isaiah 48:8, & Romans 5:12. By the way, where is your "Book, Chapter, & Verse" proof texts that all people are born innocent????? 4) You deny that eternal life begins at the moment a person is Saved. Acts 13:48, & John 5:24 ("hath" is past tense, meaning it has already happened the moment a person is Saved; also "...is passed from death unto life." means it has already happened.) 5) You deny that the Holy Ghost permanently Indwells every believer from the moment of Salvation. This is truly the one Baptism referred to in Ephesians 4:5. You gloss over this by saying that God and Christ are also referred to as "being in us", however, the Bible specifically referes to the Holy Spirit as the person of the Trinity who actually Indwells every believer. Your claim that John 14, 15, & 16 is only referring to the Apostles being Indwelt by the Holy Spirit is totally wrong; other verses, such as 1st Corinthians 12:13, Romans 8:9-11 taken in proper, logical context, et al make it perfectly clear that ALL believers are permanently Indwelt by the Holy Spirit. Hebrews 2:3-4 make it perfectly clear that the signs and wonders given by the Holy Spirit was truly for the Apostles only, but as Scripture validates, the Baptism ("one Baptism") of the Holy Spirit is performed upon every believer at the moment of Salvation. We are not "commanded" to be Baptised by the Holy Spirit because, as Scripture teaches, the Baptism is performed instantly at Salvation. 6) You deny that there is a literal 1000 year reign of Jesus Christ here on Earth after His Second Coming. Revelation Chapter 20 proves you WRONG Wesley. 7) You deny that churches should have "Pastors", yet Ephesians 4:11 clearly mentions "pastors". 8) You falsely teach that "communion" should be taken every Sunday. First Corinthians 11:24-25 clearly does not specify a timetable. 9) You teach a "works based Salvation" which is totally contrary to the Bible. You take all the verses you use to support "works to keep your Salvation" totally out of the context within which they are found, as well as out of context with what the Bible has to say collectively regarding Salvation. WORKS ARE EVIDENCE TO THE WORLD THAT WE ARE SAVED, NOT TO PROVE TO GOD THAT WE ARE WORTHY OF HIS FORGIVENESS, Ephesians 2:10 "For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.".

E-Mail Question - Wesley, I don't recall ever hearing you explain Philippians 1:6. That verse clearly explains "once Saved always Saved". Christ begins His work in us at the moment of Salvation, and Christ will continue that work in us until His return. Read the verse without your comments, that's what the verse is saying. Salvation is ALL of Christ Wesley. We desire to please Christ after we are Saved, but when we sin we don't lose our Salvation, and it's impossible to "change masters" as you so often say. Just take this verse and explain what it is saying. I offer the following verses because they support what this verse is saying, but I would like to hear your explanation of what this verse is saying: Ephesians 2:10 says basically the same thing. We are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus. No room to "change masters" here. Ephesians 1:13-14 also says essentially the same thing; we are sealed until the day of our redemption. The seal cannot be broken by us, we are sealed by the Holy Ghost. We are sealed until the day of our redemption. We are Christ's purchased possession; we cannot "change masters". John 10:27-30 says very clearly that we cannot lose our Salvation. The statement that: Neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand or my Fathers hand makes it crystal clear that we are eternally Saved Wesley. No man would include any Saved person as being unable to renounce his Salvation, or "change masters" as you like to say. Hebrews 13:5 says Christ will never leave nor forsake us. It does not say, or even imply, that He will never leave us nor forsake us as long as we don't "change masters". Sincerely in Christ.

E-Mail Question - Wesley, Thank you so much for addressing my e-mail of 7-10-12 on your program today. I'm very grateful for the time and effort you expended on my behalf. I've been concerned about my situation for some time and I sincerely appreciate your honesty and wisdom relating to the Lord's commandments on this subject. I also appreciate the compassion and caring you, Tim and Tony all expressed towards me and my lady friend in your approach to my questions. The answer to whether or not she would be qualified to remarry since she had committed the sin before becomong a member of the Lord's church was underscored when Tony emphasized the word "whosoever" in the Scriptures reguarding adultery. I'd previously missed that distinction, so thank you for that insight. One area that I still have a question about which you did not have time to touch upon much was is it sinful to date this woman? Is is forbidden, for example for us to go on a movie or dinner dates or for me to take her and her child to church with me? For several months we have discussed the likelihood that she might not every be able to remarry. But what of our platonic relationship. Thank you again for all yo do in the serice of the Lord. Everyone on your program is much loved and appreciated, Sincerely...;

E-Mail Question - Dear Wesley, I'm listening to your July 10th 2012 broadcast on marriage, divorce and remarriage. I've been dating a divorced woman for a year.She was the guilty party in an adulterous relationship and my question relates to the so-called "unforgiveable sin" angle that some might have contended to be the case. While participating in the adulterous relationship this woman was not a member of the Lord's church. She is now learning the truth and is going to be baptized. My question is: After being made a member of the Lord's church and receiving forgiveness for her sins would she then be able to remarry. I think I know how you will answer; that she would be forgiven but not be authorized to remarry. However, I don't understand how that could be an unforgiveable sin in that respect since she would still be sufering the consequences of something she did before she was saved? For example, many people fornicate before marriage, yet they are forgiven after being baptized and then can marry. This seems to be a contadiction or a double standard. Either fornication dooms you forever or it does not. If adultery can be forgiven among single people, adultery meaning sleeping with a married person who is not your spouse to the degree that they are ffree to marry, then why wouldn't this woman be allowed to remarry especially since she committed the sin in a lost state. Like reprobate Mormons, one soul would appear to be safer if they don't even join the institution of marriage in the first place. Another thought; if this woman is therefore still tied to her ex-husband in the eyes of the Lord, and if the ex-husband chose to remarry would this not make him married to more than one woman. Also, is sinful for me to be dating her or taking her and her child to church with me? If so, then why? Has one transgression condemned her to remain alone the rest of her life? That doesn't seem just! Thank you for your program. I know you will tell it like it is and I appreciate that, Sincerely ...
Caller -A woman cheats on her husband and he puts her away, and he remarries, can she wait until he dies and she is free to remarry again?, The same woman is put away because of adultery and he dies before she remarries is she free to remarry again?.

E-Mail Question - Dear Wesley, Blessings from the Girls Youth, Lakeland FLorida. This is a copy of the email that we tried to send you earlier. Dear Wesley, Hope you are doing well! We've got a few questions, after hearing your broadcast on marriage devorce and remarriage. We know of a "REV" who was married, and his wife past/away. He then gets remarried. However, he divorces his new wife because: 1, His oldest daughter didn't like his new wife's family, and 2. He didn't get along with his new wife's family. Question, 1, Sence this "REV" has been divorce without cause of adultory is this person able to preach in the Church again? Read if you will (1 Timothy 3:1 8 and following. Also read if you will (Titus 2) About the qualifications of being a leader in the Lord's Church. Question, 2, Where does the daughter get Bible to come between her dad, and his new wife? When a Dad is letting his daughter make the decisions about who her Dad can marry and cannot marry, isn't this crossing the line? Don't you think? Couls you deal with these questions on Tuesday's Broadcast? BACK TO THE ORIGINAL TEXT Since we're going to deal with this topic then we think their is a few questions that need to be answered! Questions that most churches won't deal with. Sorry to say even in the Lord's church. The questions are above. Can you deal with them please! ... Girls Youth Director, Blessings;

E-Mail Question - Wesley, You said on your Tuesday, 7/3/2012, radio broadcast that Faith itself was a "work". You were reading from John 6:28-29 when you made that statement. Ephesians 2:8-9 clearly says that "faith" is not a work, but rather that it is a gift of God. You intentionally twisted what the Bible says to go along with your false teaching. Sincerely in Christ,

E-Mail Question - Dear Wesley, Blessings from The Girls Youth Lakeland Fl. Hope your doing well today. Got a question after listening to the broadcast online about the girls friend who's parents worshiped the moon a question was raised in the group disscustion. 1, Is it your belief that "the full moon" has anything to do with "mude changes"? "Saying "the full moon" makes me hateful so that is not my problem." "Saying well the moon changes my fillings." These statements are like saying "the devell made me do it." So if we blow up at you because you don't read our email first or do what we think you should do., WHY! We can't be held accountable because "the full moon" made us do it. How rediculus my friend! These people we think have a lack of Spirituality. what do you think! So should a murder be set free, or get a lighter sentence because "the full moon" made them do it? Can you see where this faulty thinking will lead to! These people just don't want to take responsablity for the're own actions. Can you briefly comment on these statements on Tuesdays broadcast. Consider doing a program in the future about the "full moon" and witchcraft.. Oh by the way did you get our last email dealing with "marriage devorce and remarriage. If not just let us know and wie'll send it again. Blessings from the Girls youth Lakeland Florida, ... Girls Youth Director,
E-Mail Question - Wesley, I would like to hear your explanation of Romans Chapter 4, especially verses 1-5. This Chapter makes it quite clear that Salvation is totally by God's Grace, and by Faith alone. The book of James simply refers to "works" as giving proof to mankind that we are Saved, not that we must work to get, or, to keep our Salvation. Romans 4:1-5, & James 2:17-26 are both basically saying the same thing as Ephesians 2:8-10; we are Saved by Grace, through Faith, NOT OF WORKS, LEST ANY MAN SHOULD BOAST; the desire to do good works mentioned in Ephesians 2:10 is because OF our Salvation, not a requirement to get, or to keep our Salvation. I know you will twist the meaning of Romans Chapter Four completely out of context, but it will be interesting to hear how you do it. I venture to say also that your famous statement, "This is one of our favorite chapters." will be made regarding this chapter. You will probably also drag in bits and pieces of Sam Morris' Tract, but if his complete Tract were available, and read in it's ENTIRETY without comment, it would prove to be Biblically correct. Sincerely in Christ,

E-Mail Question - I've the speakers on this program afirm that the church today should be like the one we find in the New Testament. This is a vague statement. I want to ask a specific question and the respomse will determine my followup. Should the church today pattern itself after the church found in Acts chapters 2 through 7? The reason I mention the aforgoing statement to be vague is that I do not see a consist pattern throughout Acts or the church Epistles. Since many consider the church that existed after the first Pentecost following Jesus' resurrection to be the beginning of the church. This is a very logical question to ask of anyone seeking a pattern to follow. It would seem that the first church pattern would be the goal of anyone determined to find a true pattern to adhere to. I look forward to your response;

For example, something is alright one day but the next day it is wrong. They claim that the Parents claim that it's all in the moon. Can you give some Scripture to deal with this? If they are basing their fillings upon the moon isn't this "Witch craft". Thank you for your time.

E-Mail Question - Wesley, Your statement about the blood of Christ on your Tuesday 5 June 2012 program is just one more facet of your false teaching. You falsely said that the blood of Christ was just like anyone else's blood. Check out this attached website. It explains Christ's blood and how it differs from the blood of mankind. http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/BTP/Dr_MR_DeHaan/Chemistry/04.htm You also quickly slipped in a comment to the effect that everyone was born innocent. This is totally false Wesley. Adam and Eve were the only two innocent people who ever lived, Christ excepted. Adam and Eve's sin introduced sin to all mankind beginning at birth. Romans 5:12-21 makes this point quite clear. Sincerely im Christ,

E-Mail Question - Dear Wesley, Got just a few questions, First we are members of the "church of Christ" that does not use instrumental music in warship to God. Are you a member of this same church? Or do you just play the Acappela singing on your broadcast? Where do you get the music you play on the air? Just wanting to know. Blessings from the Girls Youth Group of Lakelyn FL.
E-Mail Questions - Wesley, Your deception never ceases. You always twist and distort Scripture to support your false teaching. How ludicrous to suggest that Matthew 3:11 was meant only for the Apostles, and "possibly Cornelius and his household". You blatantly insult the intelligence of you listening audience by teaching such such a twisted interpretation. Any fifth grader could read that passage and come up with the correct meaning. The parallel Scriptures: Mark 1:1-8, Luke 3:7-17, & John 1:15-36 ALL support the obvious fact that Matthew 3:11 is referring to ALL Saved people. Mark 1:5 specifically says ALL, referring to ALL who were baptised in water, Luke 3:16 specifically says ALL; that means every Saved person Wesley! All four passages are obviously referring to ALL Saved people; not just the Apostles. You won't read these passages, or this letter in it's entirety, over the airwaves because they destroy your false teaching about Matthew 3:11. Hebrews 2:3-4 makes it clear that the signs, and wonders, and miracles, accompanying the Holy Ghost baptism would cease with the passing of the Apostles, but it is definitely not saying that the Baptism of the Holy Ghost will cease. Yes, Scripture does use terms like "Christ in you", and "God in you", but Scripture clearly identifies the Holy Ghost as the one who permanently indwells Every Saved person since Christ's ascension. You KNOW the Scripture verses that teach this Wesley, so please don't go off ranting about "Show me Book, Chapter, and Verse!". I will list four passages just so you don't get too upset: John 7:37-39, 1 Corinthians 6:19, 1 Corinthians 12:13 and 1 John 4:4. I know that you know these, and all the other verses as well. These verses can only be referring to all Saved people. That's the ONE BAPTISM of Ephesians 4:5 Wesley. Twist it however you will. I just want you to know, that I know, what a deceiver you are, and I learn more and more from each program how to combat your deception. Praise God for that. Sincerely in Christ.

The fraise "Abortion on demand" means the following. Note to your listeners the following statement is a direct Quote from "Plan Parenthood" of the greater Fort Myers area" ""Abortion on demandis: ""Abortion at any age, at any time and for any reason. Even to the any time meaning even up to and including the last hour before birth is given. Doctors Counselers or anyone in the clinick cannot and must not try to talk the girl out of the abortion no matter how dangerous it mean the abortion may be to the girl's health. It is not about the girl's health or what she may, or may not want. rather it is all about the money. Abortion on demand is to be directed taword girls between 11 and 17 old. Abortions are to be preformed with out any questions ask no matter how young the girl may be. Remember you are killing a baby, but you cannot and must not let the girl know that.""

E-Mail Questions - Wesley, This is the THIRD, count them, THIRD e-mail referencing the e-mails which are attached. Since you are talking about the Holy Ghost maybe you can squeeze them in now, but I doubt you will. You don't want to discuss the Bible verses which make it perfectly clear that EVERY Saved person since Christ's ascension is permanently indwelt by the Holy Ghost; SEALED by the Holy Ghost UNTIL the day of redemption, Ephesians 1:13-14. Sealed "UNTIL THE DAY OF REDEMPTION" MEANS JUST WHAT IT SAYS; IT DOES NOT MEAN UNTIL GOD DECIDES TO BREAK THE SEAL, OR UNTIL A PERSON DECIDES TO BREAK THE SEAL; IT MEANS "UNTIL THE DAY OF REDEMPTION" JUST LIKE IT SAYS. Your program today (1/24/2012) makes it clear that you are AFRAID to address these verses because they destroy your False Teaching which alleges that Saved people can lose their Salvation. Read these attached e-mails carefully again. Sincerely in Christ,
E-Mail Question - Wesley, The phrase I used in th below e-mail ("UNTIL THE DAY OF REDEMPTION") is obviously a paraphrase of what Ephesians 1:14 is actually saying. Just wanted to make that perfectly clear. Sincerely in Christ,

E-Mail Question - Paul always greets the congregation which he is writing to as "saints", regardless of their spiritual condition. This is what we call the "standing of the one who is in Christ." Have you or do you ever think of you or others as "saints?" We are, regardless of our state which is ever-changing. You know the line in the song, "well sometimes I'm and sometimes I'm down, coming for to carry me home." It has to have religious people scratching their heads when Paul refers to the church at Corinth as sanctified, enriched, confined unto the end that ye may be blameless, etc. It would do preachers and teachers well if we practice what Paul did when dealing with the saints of the church and first remind them of their standing before we expose and seek to correct their state. I would hope that your denomination accepts these two characteristics of the regenerate person as plainly portrayed by scripture. Let us all do things the way they are done in the Bible and give the proper respect to the flock of God.

It's obvious you and I will never agree on this issue either. You continue to misrepresent what I mean when I say you are 99 & 44/100% right. I MEAN THAT YOU ARE TOTALLY WRONG! IT'S THE 56/100% LIES AND FALSE TEACHING THAT YOU SUBTILLY MIX WITH THE TRUTH OF GOD'S WORD THAT MAKES YOUR TEACHING FALSE! That is what I mean when I refer to 99 & 44/100% Wesley. You know what I really mean but you can't resist twisting even that truth and changing it into a LIE. That is just one more proof that you truly are a False Teacher. Sincerely in Christ,;
