Quote from: Michael
So, Jesus is your savior, only if you deny yourself and follow Him. That sounds good.

And I can gather from your other posts that He saves you by way of His preaching/teaching you through scriptures, how you can save yourself, that is, by your obedience and keeping of all God's commandments/Laws and by humbling yourself.

I posted what the Christ teaches Michael. I never said, implied, suggested in any way that I save myself and you know it. This is just another in a long line of falsehoods you preach. But hey, if you don't think lying is a sin, then to you it isn't sin, right?

"save myself"!!! Why don't you answer a question. If I'm drowning and Jesus hold's His hand out to me and says "Take My Hand" and I obey Him and "DO" as He instructs, did I save myself or did Jesus save me?

Of course you will not answer.

Of course I will answer. We are different in this aspect.

That's good, now that you cleared that up here. So you are not saying that you save yourself. I thought you are saying that, as per what I gather in your posts. But that is clear now to me. And I will take note of that. Though, your "drowning" example there seems to say otherwise.

You asked "if you don't think lying is a sin, then to you it isn't sin, right?" NO. Lying is sin, as murder is sin, whether you know it is or not.

You asked "If I'm drowning and Jesus hold's His hand out to me and says "Take My Hand" and I obey Him and "DO" as He instructs, did I save myself or did Jesus save me?"

Jesus did. But then, that is not even close to the salvation of God. Consider this instead. If you are drowning, you in all likelihood is in panic, and naturally is disoriented and are not in control and cannot control what it is you do as you drown. You are very very much naturally busy trying to get some air in every which way you can, that you wouldn't and co...
