    This is what I said -

    Please point out to me, how this scripture is now "my view" , as if scripture is somehow my opinion.

    • eternal life to those who by patient continuance in doing good seek for glory, honor, and immortality; Romans 2:7

    God, who “will render to each one according to his deeds”: eternal life to those who by patient continuance in doing good seek for glory, honor, and immortality; but to those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness—indignation and wrath, Romans 2:6-8


    I didn't explain anything.

    From post 31 -


    Here are those who will receive eternal life.

    • eternal life to those who by patient continuance in doing good seek for glory, honor, and immortality; Romans 2:7

    Is this passage the truth or a lie?


    God, who “will render to each one according to his deeds”: eternal life to those who by patient continuance in doing good seek for glory, honor, and immortality; but to those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness—indignation and wrath, Romans 2:6-8

    You asked "do you believe...." in other words, you are asking me what I think is the meaning of the text. This is my whole point. Of course I believe those verses to be true. But they don't even begin to lay out the whole case for what I believe is the correct biblical position. You can't get there without using your own words and understanding to work out the meaning of the text. In doing so, you could get it right but you also could get it wrong.

    You want to focus on one verse? It's easy. Is Romans 2:7 true? Yes. I believe that God gives eternal life to those who by patient continuance in doing good seek for glory, honor and immortality.

    There. But now someone will eventually ask me what I think that verse means or how it ties together with other verses in Scripture. Once I start using my own words, I'm no longer quoting Scripture but I'm explaining my personal view.

    That's what's done on this forum all day long: people give their personal views of a variety of matters.

    It's hard to follow the reply. You have to remember not to reply within the quotes of the previous poster. The + icon above the text box is for adding a portion of the text to which you can reply. Hope that makes sense

    When you reply to someone, their part will show up with "quote" in brackets. It's like this: [quoote] reply text here [/quoote]

    I misspelled "quote" but it won't show up if I spell it correctly. Don't include our reply within the bracketed quote.

    You're reply should come after this: [/quoote]

    That will show both the first post and your reply to it but they will be separated. It will look like this.

    when you reply outside of it, yours show like this.

    You don't have to put your reply in the quote brackets. Just type your reply

    Yes, you did it! This is the way it should look. There is more you can do but this is enough for now.
