A) I am trying to make a point. The law is still there, but when you become true Christian, you are not under the law but under grace. If the speed limit is 70 and you are person that don't like driving fast, you aren't worried about breaking the law because you are in agreement with the law. The person who is lawless always going 90miles/hr is the one worried.a) I have interest in alcohol but I don't drink and drive. That doesn't mean DUI law means nothing. That's not how it works. The laws are there regardless of whether you break the law or not.
b) "When genuine Christians die, we become perfect as God is perfect." And who evaluates whether someone is a "genuine Christian"? That wouldn't the person we send the $100/week to, would it?
c) What about people who have never been exposed to Christianity? Remote tribes and such. Or people in other parts of the world throughout history. Or people who lived before the days of JC? None of them were or are allowed everlasting life? Why would God fail to inform these people of the opportunity?
d) Not sure how this one is an actual response to what I said.
e) Ah. So God likes cheerful givers. But what about the even more cheerful takers from those givers? So, if I can corral 100,000 cheerful givers into cheerfully giving me $100/week each... let's see... that's a cool $10 mil a week. So, God will be perfectly happy when I purchase my spanking brand new Gulfstream X? Isn't debt a sin too? So, he'll be okay if I just pay all cash up front for the Gulfstream? And what about if I spend most of the year on an extended vacation visiting all the extra homes I've been buying with that money? I'll also be paying cash for those. Is he going to expect me to preach or can I just occasionally give him a wave and say, "I'm still believin' in ya, bro!" And it's all tax free too, right?
I mean, if all this is correct, heck! Sign me up! I get to be a perfectly horrible human being, take millions from poor people, live a lifestyle of the rich and famous... AND I get the live forever.
B) God knows genuine Christians. But when one is born again, he receives the holy spirit. The holy spirit dwells in every true believer. The same spirit that raised Jesus up from the dead. Gods spirit witnesses with our spirit that we are the children of God. We don't become perfect on our own. God makes us perfect.
C) A person doesn't go to hell because he has not heard the gospel. He goes to hell because he is a sinner. All of us have sinned against our creator. Now there are levels of hell just like there are levels of sin. Unless you come to believe in Jesus Christ, your punishment will be way way worse than the person that never heard the gospel. At this point, you are trampling underfoot the son of the living God and calling his blood an unclean thing..
The people before Christ are saved the same way the people are saved now. The lamb was slain before the foundation of the world. They looked forward to the coming messiah and believed. The bible from Genesis to the revelation is all about Jesus Christ. "Lo I come in the volume of the book, it is written of me." All the sacrifices, rituals, the law, Noah's Ark, Jonah and the whale.. and so many others were pictures, pictures, pictures of the coming messiah...
D) No when you truly believe you cannot do whatever, because you are not the same person you were before. The apostle Paul has made that clear in Roman's 6. "Shall we continue in sin so grace might abound, by no means. How can we who are dead to sin still live in it?" Genuine born again Christians are given new nature. A Nature that wants to please God. We still sin, but we dont live in sin..
E) if you are truly born again Christian, you read your bible daily. You eventually will discern the fake. Above all, you have the holy spirit that dwells in you directing your steps.
In most cases, The people that are victims of the false TV Pastors are not victims. They want the same thing their Pastor wants. These people have itching ears that accumilate teachers to tell them what they want to hear. They dont want God but only the blessings that come from God. They want to hear how God is going to get them house, money, marriage all the temporal vanity..
