A l l  T o  B e  S a v e d  Q u e s t i o n s

-If our salvation is assured in Christ, why does Paul warn us about being sure to continue in the faith?.Colossians 1:23 "If you continue in the faith grounded and settled and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which you have heard and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven, whereof I Paul am made a minister."

Verse 23 is better translated, rather than as a warning, but as what it is, an observation by Paul of their faith:.'Seeing that you are continuing in the faith and have not moved away from the hope of the gospel.....'.

They were sometime alienated, but not now:.Colossians 1:2,4,8,21."To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ which are at Colosse: Grace be unto you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Emmanuel the Christ. Since we heard of your faith in Christ Emmanuel and of the love which you have to all the saints, who also declared unto us your love in the Spirit. And you that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled."

Your salvation is assured in Christ. One's reward however, is dependent upon other things such as actions which show compassion and love

-If all are to be saved, what about the remant spoken about in Romans 9:27 "Esaias.(Isaiah).also cries concerning Israel.(who is 'Israel' today?), Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved".and.1Corinthians 3:17 "If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy, for the temple of God is holy, which temple you are"?.Key here is 'the temple you are'. Since you are now equal with the Infinite Intelligence of the universe and consequently, possess powers of creation and resurrection as God himself, those thoughts you have chosen which dominate you, will either lift you up or destroy you.(*). Do you think negative, entertaining selfish, greedy, angry and anxious states of mind or have you decided to be in all areas of life, the very best human you can be, emulating the kindness of Christ?

Re: Romans 9:27:.Romans 11:25,26 "For I would not, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own conceits, that blindness in part is happened to Israel,.until.the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. ...And so all Israel shall be saved....."

Re: 1Corinthians 3:17; Paul is talking about the danger inherent in laying a different foundation apart from Christ in you:.1Corinthians 3:10,11 "According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation and another builds thereon. But let every man take heed how he builds thereupon. For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Emmanuel the Christ."

Paul is saying that to be on the lookout for those who present an alternate message, intending to undermine the church back then:.1Corinthians 11:19 "For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you." 1John 2:19 "They went out from us, but they were not of us. For if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us. But they went out, that they might be made manifest that they all were not of us."

Emmanuel said:.Matthew 15:9-20 "But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. And he called the multitude and said unto them, Hear and understand: Not that which goes into the mouth defiles a man, but that which comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man. Then came his disciples and said unto him, Know you that the Pharisees were offended after they heard this saying? But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father has not planted, shall be rooted up. Let them alone. They be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch. Then answered Peter and said unto him, Declare unto us this parable. And Emmanuel said, Are you also yet without understanding? Do not you yet understand that whatsoever enters in at the mouth goes into the belly and is cast out into the draught.(toilet)? But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart and they defile the man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies. These are the things which defile a man. But to eat with unwashen hands defiles not a man." Mark 7:20-23 "And he said, That which comes out of the man, that defiles the man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within and defile the man."

James said:.James 3:6 "And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. So is the tongue among our members, that it defiles the whole body and sets on fire the course of nature.(toward negativity and depression) and it is set on fire of hell.(or, the tongue causes trials in our lives, causing 'all hell' to come into them)."

Matthew 12:34 "O generation of vipers, how can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.".(*)
