BTW, one cannot “have Jesus” and still be hell-bound. Hence, the charge of “universalism”. If everyone “has Jesus living in them” as you have claimed in your very first post, they are all Heaven-bound, which we know is not true from Scripture. Only the believers have Christ. This IS Scriptural. Somewhere along the line you have confused the term “light” with “Jesus” or the “Holy Spirit” and are in error. Scripture does not teach that everyone has Jesus. Scripture teaches that all NEED Jesus for salvation. If they already have Him, what need to go any further? Everyone’s already saved! (This view is a type of “universalism”, by the way, and is completely anathema to the Scriptural view.)

I have shown you in Scriptures where mankind is completely inherently sinful. You have chosen to believe otherwise - which you have stated in one of your posts —which is your “right”, but do not expect those who rest on the authority of God’s Word to agree with you on it because that notion is not Scriptural.

One last post from me on this too. No hard feelings ok.

Of course God is Spirit, and nothing is more Holy than He. Christ is also Spirit, who by scripture we learn that he laid the foundation that EVERYONE builds on. (See to it you build well) we are warned.

Lastly, the Holy Spirit by the definition of Jesus is a Counsolor or as sometimes refered a Comforter. It is this aspect of the Holy Spirit that brings one to the Light of all truth.

Deny the Scriptures at your own peril.

If I have offended you then please forgive me, it was not my intention. If you feel I was crying wolf, then likewise I apologize. The only person that can upset me, anger or frustrate me, is me, myself and I.

You are not responsible for anything I say or feel, okay.

I pray that you can find it in your heart to look to examine your own faith and belief system.

For I have shown you where damned or not damned, Christ will indeed draw all to him.

Let’s look at I Tim. 4:9-10 in any context you wish:

“This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation. For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, Who IS THE SAVIOUR OF ALL MEN, specially of those that believe.

Specially those that believe, which means of course the ‘all’ means those that DO NOT.

A faithful and true saying, believe what you will. I trust in The Lord my God and Father whose words I just quoted.
