John and Doves,
there is good news and good news.
good news is that any argument that you come up with from the Bible
The other good news (or more properly, Good
News) is something that you are already aware of.
by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is
the gift of God,
works, lest anyone should boast.
are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared
beforehand that we should walk in them." Ephesians
all we who are saved [and are yet to be saved] are "His
responsibility is the LORD's to save whom He will.
need to do is obey Him: do what He says to do, say what He says to
are the "good works, which God prepared beforehand."
this end, Susan, I claim the following verse on your life, by faith in Christ
"...[I]t is God who works in you both
to will and to do for His good pleasure."

Hi all Doves
Please help me to
answer this CA (Candidate Attorney). My e-mail to him and his
response. How do I make him see that he needs a saviour, Jesus in his

and through Jesus Christ do I pray. It is just interesting to note how the God
who created us as we are is taken by people and made out to be this vengeful
being who shall come down upon his creatures with wrath dare they neglect
accepting Jesus Christ. I do not believe that He shall do so. God is not
stupid: He knows what he made.
My example is this: say you are an
Engineer and you create a car. The car is designed in such a way that its top
speed is 40km/hr. Will you then be angry when you accelerate and all the car
can achieve is a maximum speed of 40km/hr? Will you be angry at the car if,
due to environmental features, the car’s efficiency decreases and its maximum
speed becomes 20km/hr? I think God is aware more than you or I or any other
preacher, of who we are, our nature, our susceptibility to earthly things, our
weaknesses etc. He is aware. He made us to be the best we could, to cope as
much as we could, each according to our unique character and mindset. He gave
us individual minds to think, to assess, to judge.
my statement: what am I being saved for? If for my sins, where do they come
from? If from my human nature, who gave me that nature? If God, then why would
He go through the process of making something that He thinks I need saving
from? Would God create what He abhors? And then condemn it for its abhorrent
If the human nature springs from Satan, who created Satan?
If God, did God know Satan was evil? If yes, then why didn’t God defend us
against Satan by giving us a natural resistance against Satan in our human
nature? Are you saying God left us at the mercies of Satan and then sent his
son to die so that we could believe in the son that died and gain freedom from
Satan? But how and why? If God is all powerful and all seeing, surely a beast
like satan would not be a problem? If you had children that you loved dearly
and you saw a man coming and you knew that that man was a great manipulator
and would probably manipulate your kids into doing bad things, would you let
the man lead your kids astray? Or would you protect them as much as you could
from the man? Meaning you would stop that man while he was still far and send
him away, or kill him, or do whatever it takes to keep him away from your
God loves us, madam Waigwa, and we should love
ourselves too because we were worthy enough to be created by him, with our
faults. We try all we can in this earth that has joy, pain, sorrow, laughter,
mourning, celebration, tears and pleasure.. God appreciates us for that. That
is what I believe, and that is the God I pray to: the one who loves

the wages of Sin is Death but the free gift of God is Life thru Christ
Brian, What shall it profit a man
if he GAINS the whole world and loses his own soul?
Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins be blotted
For God, so loved the world (man)
that He gave His only Son, that WHOEVER believes in Him (Jesus) may not perish
but have everlasting life.
As you said, our lives
originate from God, therefore we belong to Him, as His creation, but He wants
to have a relationship with Him as sons and daughters, based on our willingly
giving our lives to Him thru His son Jesus Christ..
Bible says that “there has not been given any other name, in Heaven or on
earth by which we may be saved, but the name of Jesus
It is true that one day we will die, unless Jesus
comes for those who trust in Him during the Rapture, and then we shall face
judgement. God will not judge us on our wealth, fame or any good
works. Like the days of old, God had to see the blood of the lambs that
had been sacrificed, before He could forgive those people. God has to
see the Blood of Jesus, over your life and in your life, for Him to forgive
you and I of our sins.
We cannot gain eternal life thru any other
way other than what God has given us. Salvation is by Jesus Christ
