Hi Guys

Interesting page.

Just a question on your eight steps of repentance. What if you committed a sin you weren’t aware of how would you go through all of the 8 steps?  if I have done a sin I am not aware of does that mean I have not completed proper repentance?

Regards

Paul

Paul, it’s not about dotting all the “I’s” and crossing all the “t’s”. It’s all about motive and attitude. If you seek the Lord to do His will, He’ll surely cause you to know all you need to know. He’ll convict you of any sin and give you the gift of repentance to turn from it.

Believe and obey; it’s for your life, His Eternal Life He gives to those who believe on Him. Jesus Christ is Lord.

Paul, Paul Cohen here. You have the cart in front of the horse. Those 8 elements follow the repentance that comes from God. In other words, when those elements are present, we know that God is doing a miraculous work of salvation in the person. And when any of those elements are absent, we know that God isn’t doing the work. 

And, O man, the one judging those who do such things, and practice them, do you think this, that you shall escape the judgment of God? Or do you despise the riches of His kindness, and the forbearance and long-suffering, not knowing that the kindness of God leads you to repentance?” (Romans 2:3-4 MKJV)

“When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, ‘Then God has also granted to the Gentiles repentance to life!’” 

(Acts 11:18 WEB)

Do you really believe deluded liars would heed your pleading, if that’s what we are? On the other hand, did the Lord Jesus Christ or did His apostles ask false teachers to “please” stop spreading their lies? Never. It was always (and still is) the false teachers and their followers who asked or demanded the Lord’s servants to shut up: 1 Thessalonians 2:14-16 MKJV (14) For you, brothers, became imitators of the churches of God which are in Judea in Christ Jesus. For you also have suffered these things by your own countrymen, even as they also by the Jews; (15) who both killed the Lord Jesus and their own prophets, also driving us out and they do not please God and being contrary to all men, (16) forbidding us to speak to the nations that they might be saved, to fill up their sins always; but the wrath has come upon them to the uttermost. “What shall we do to these men? For that indeed a notable miracle has been done by t...

I understand that those dead in Christ are dead to this world . Can you explain to me Revelation 20:4-6 . I appreciate you getting back to me . Thank you for this. Chris From: Paul Cohen To: Chris Cc: Victor Hafichuk Sent: Thursday, February 11, 2016 8:28 AM Subject: Re[1]: Diabolical Doctrine: “Soul Sleep” (The Dead in Christ Are Unconscious) No, we’re not saying that when someone dies they immediately go to heaven. Heaven is a spiritual state and isn’t accessed by means of physical death but by living faith.  “Some Pharisees asked Jesus when the Kingdom of God would come. His answer was, ‘The Kingdom of God does not come in such a way as to be seen. No one will say, Look, here it is! or, There it is!; because the Kingdom of God is within you’” (Luke 17:20-21 GNB). Hell is also within.  You ask about these verses:  Revelation 20:4-6 MKJV (4)  And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was given to them. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the witness of Jesus and for the Word of God, and who had not worshiped the beast nor his image, nor had received his mark on their ...
No ConfíES en Tus Sentimientos 
English - Spanish De: Tonya Para: Paul Cohen Enviado: Sábado 23 de Enero, 2016 12:27 AM Asunto: Hola, ¿me puedes dar tu consejo?  Hola, mi nombre es Tonya, tengo 35 años y crecí sin conocer a Dios en una casa con 6 niños y mi papá era divorciado y mis 2 hermanos y yo estábamos con él cuando conoció a una novia que tenía 3 hijos y ellos estuvieron juntos por 13 años. Ambos permanecieron juntos muy infelices, excepto por nosotros los niños. Hacia el final, ambos al mismo tiempo, conocieron a otras personas en línea y se separaron y durante los últimos 15 años ambos han estado muy felices ahora. Siento que esto ha jugado un papel en mi vida ya que estoy en la misma situación, como también lo están mis otros hermanos y hermana que están en relaciones. Es triste cómo eso sucede y yo no quiero esto para mis hijos. Yo conocí a mi esposo a los 19 años, ningunos de nosotros conocíamos a Dios. Terminamos casándonos 2 años después y tuve nuestro primer hijo justo antes de casarnos. Él se unió al ejército por 4 años. Tenemos 3 hijos y hemos estado juntos 16 años, casados por 14.  Hemos tenidos muchos problemas durante estos años comenzando después de que nuestro primer hijo nació. Empeoraron y él hizo algunas cosas mientras estaba fuera del país; luego se volvió adicto a los juegos. El siempre ha jugado juegos desde el principio, pero las cosas empeoraron. Recientemente, él gasto más de 2000 en 2 meses en su juego que juega sin parar. Eso es muy malo y le ha quitado la vida y n...
