    Are all people infected by sin?

    Why don't you do a word study of the use of heresy in NT?

    Are all people infected by sin?

    Justin Martyr's writings are sometimes helpful, but not God-breathed. So you know better than he. And that's because.....??????? These verses do not state baptized into Christ Jesus = baptized into His death = water baptism for salvation. I do not disagree w Paul's statement. I disagree w...

    Tob, What is the biblical definition of heresy? Oz

    Are all people infected by sin?

    Tob, Where does the Bible state baptismal regeneration is heresy? What is difference between heresy & false teaching? Oz

    Are all people infected by sin?

    Not one of these biblical texts equates baptism into Christ with water baptism. Not one. Justin Martyr's writings are sometimes helpful, but not God-breathed.

    Are all people infected by sin?

    I've provided biblical evidence on regeneration that contradicts the Orthodox Church teaching on baptismal regeneration. I'm not going to repeat it.

    I gave you the biblical basis, providing evidence. You continue with your opinions.

    Are all people infected by sin?

    jason, The above is your answer to my question: "Who decides which laws are right for a nation? What measurement should a country use?" You didn't tell me in this post how a nation decides which laws are right to legislate? How does the govt. determine right and wrong behaviour for its laws? Oz

    Are all people infected by sin?

    Jim, I've never ever suggested that we do away with all laws. That's not my belief. Someone else on this forum discussed laws against illicit drugs that do not stop drug abuse. My comments related to that view. I support all the laws of Australia, except those that disagree with God's laws...

    Are all people infected by sin?

    I know that's your Orthodox Church's position and your belief. It's not mine because I know that when we are united with Christ, we are reconciled by His blood sacrifice and so we experience regeneration at the time of salvation through repentance and faith. When we are 'in Christ', we...

    Are all people infected by sin?

    Jim, Quoting these 2 verses still does not answer my question: Your referring to Rom 6:1-2 doesn't solve the problem of lawlessness for unbelievers. Oz

    Are all people infected by sin?

    Jim, I've read those 2 chapters many times in my Christian life. I'm still uncertain of your understanding of the meaning of 'dead in their transgressions and sins' (Eph 2:1-2). How are people 'dead in their transgressions'? Does that mean it's impossible for them to come alive in Christ...

    Are all people infected by sin?

    Jason, My question to you, then, is should we do away with all laws (since all people won't obey them) and legislate the policies of The Libertarian Party? Oz

    Are all people infected by sin?

    Jim, How do you understand Eph 2:1-2 (NIV): 'As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient'. How do you...
