    Faith Is A Simple Test: To Find Out If You Are Teachable?

    If it turns out that you are not teachable, then obviously you
    know more than God knows and there will be no place for you
    in God's Heaven. Heaven can only have one Supreme Being.
    A Supreme Being that will never consent to become a student
    to be taught wisdom and truths by one of His creatures.

    Jesus said, "Have faith in God." {Mark 11:22}
    And you say? :
    (1) I will.
    or
    {2) I will not.

    __________



    Agree?
    Disagree?
    Thoughts?

    That was the purpose of Jesus' Ministry, seeking out the 'Teachable.'

    “No man can come to me unless the Father, who sent me, draws him.” (John 6:44) God, who searches the heart, will reward those who are teachable and act on what they learn. (Jer. 17:10; John 6:45) There are those who have the privilege of being his fellow workers in searching for meek ones who yearn for a new world devoid of the pervasive evil that we now experience ​—Ps. 37:11; 1 Cor. 3:9.

    Yes, Jesus described his disciples as “fishers of men.” (Matt. 4:19)

    Based on your posting history (that I have read) you would DEARLY LOVE his book. Ya'll are bothers.
    Aren't you about ready to forever tell God goodbye?
    And just go ahead and resign yourself to whatever you think might be waiting for you out there?

    You ask..."Agree, disagree, thoughts?" but as soon as I say anything your FANGS come out

    All I am pointing out is since you are asking which people are "teachable", WHO do you feel is the one that should do the teaching? Who has the correct, or most correct teaching? Is it YOU? Is that what you are implying?

    I have faith in man. In gods, devils, demons, angels, Easter Bunnies, and honest politicians, not so much.

    Man is the only animal intelligent enough to create gods and frightened enough to need to.

    Mosh Pit!: Petition to ban Knight

    I say we do the same for Knight.

    It's very obvious that he is a troll; half of his posts are flinging insults while the other half are the https://thepoliticsforums.com/thread...ilies/rofl.gifemoji. He doesn't add anything beneficial in discussions and I think he would be more welcome on another forum. All in agreement, please "thank" this post.
