Hello, I am needing advice/input on a situation and I'm not sure how or where to post? I've never joined a forum before. Thank you

I sincerely accept your apology, Mark. Thank you for taking this initiative. I've started a conversation with you giving more details. Oz
Sorry for the insult. I do want to hear from you. And regarding your condition, I'm with you in spirit.
Hi WIP. In keeping with the recent alert I received, would you be interested in a one on one on "infant baptism" ? No offense, just asking.BTW, are you able to send me a step by step on how to get a one on one started.

I apologize. I regret to admit but at 86 and alzheimers unless I do something very regularly I forget. Would it be possible for you to send me alist step by step how to set a one one on up. I'll stick it up and follow it if there is a next time.
Hi WIP--am I doing something wrong in trying to start a new one on one?
Hi WIP==Free Grace and I have reached an agreement for the one on one. The title should be "justification by faith". Will you please set us up? I"m not sure I remember the steps so I may need some help.
Thank you and God bless
Very well I shall contact WIP. However, I've never asked you to negate anything you believe.
If you believe that as much as you say you do then all you have to do is negate what I'm saying on the one on one. I really think you are afraid of what others will have on record to read.
Why would I say what I don't believe? Who does that? And I've already negated what you've said. But I thought you were going to set up a one-on-one. Are you?
The core of scripture on faith is that faith first must DO something before it justifies. I will affirm that if you will negate. If not, why don't you affirm your position and I will negate it?
Please provide any verse that "faith first must DO something before it justifies.
In fact, it is God that does the justifying, not our faith. So you're rather confused.
We are justified on the basis of faith, not on faith itself.
I will affirm: The scriptures teach we are justified by faith when faith works. Please note EVERY WORD IN THAT AFFIRMATION IS FOUND IN THE SCRIPTURE.
Actually, Rom 5:1 doesn't have the words "when faith works". So your affirmation is not found in Scripture. We are justified by faith, period.
The only way the Bible speaks of whether faith works or not is in regard to works, in James 2.
Regarding my last post what are the words you don't like?? Make a suggestion for other words. BTW, I'm been wondering the same thing about you.
What specifically have you been wondering about me?? I told you specifically what words I didn't like.
How about something like this: Rom.5:1, but before faith justifies faith must act?
Like I previously said, I don't agree with your use of words. Do you really want a one-on-one, or just keep commenting on my profile page?
I haven't actually changed issues. You can , I'm sure make an argument on what you believe it means in Jn.3:16. When I say that the Bible teachesthat faith must first act before God blesses or accepts that faith, how much clearer can that be?? Will God bless my faith before my faith acts? Yes or no? I believe God WILL NOT. If you agree He does NOT then you and I both agree.
What I don't agree with is your use of words, such as "faith must act", or "bless my faith". I don't find those words in Scripture.
