Agreed, and how I yearn to know that Truth ... Love ... in the power of His resurrection ... and the fellowship of His suffering.

Some people can't/won't extend grace and love to christians. How can they extend grace and love to others that do not have the truth?

It is easier to fight with the ones you love than a stranger.

HERE we are contending there we are converting I hope same message different approach. I do not dislike or hate anyone on this forum. I hate what they say sometimes but never them. Postions not persons are in the sword fight. Although I confess sometimes it is hard to distinquish the two.

Yes...look at the Jews. They were arrogant about where they came from. They said "Look, Abraham is our father".....they said "Look Moses gave US the law"....they said "Look, we are doctors and scribes, don't tell US about the law"

What's wrong with loving that message?
That's not what I got out of it. It seems he was saying SOME Of us do and that was infact what Jeff Arnold said and I agree For some folks all they know is Acts 2:38 and Standards and nothing more when there is so much more. He was not saying it's wrong to love Acts 2:38, but there is so much more in the word beyond Acts 2:38

Consider what Hebrews says
Heb 6:1 Therefore, having left the discourse of the beginning of Christ, let us go on to full growth, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,

Heb 6:2 of the baptisms, of doctrine, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.

Heb 6:3 And this we will do, if God permits.
