A Religious Liberal Blog

This site hopefully can provide some vehicle by which I can comment, complain, and once in a while praise the state of religion in this country and around the world from a liberal protestant perspective.

Greatful for support of domestic partnerships


I’m writing to express appreciation to the Sheridan Press and to Sheridan’s legislative delegation in their support of HB 168, which would have recognized domestic partnerships in Wyoming. This legislation would have extended important legal rights and responsibilities to gay and lesbians and their families. It would have insured that such families were not legal strangers to each other on important matters from medical care decisions to parental rights. While I’m disappointed that it failed to pass the state house, the fact that in Sheridan, it was supported sends a wider signal of welcome to all people and it gives me hope that the Equality state will, sooner rather than later, live up to its motto.

Liberal religion is a religious tradition which embraces the theological diversity of a congregation rather than a single creed, authority, or writing. Thank you for sharing!

CAN MEN, TODAY, BE SAVED LIKE ENOCH?

Did you ever notice that the hydrophobic believers in Jesus want to be saved like the thief on the cross? Their argument is the thief was not baptized in water, and was still saved. Thief proponents fail to mention that the thief was also saved without being born of the Spirit. The Holy Spirit of promise had not been given at that time. So the logical conclusion would be that men, today, can be saved without being born of water and the Spirit. (John 3:5 Jesus answered and said to him, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.")

The question is why do men, today, not petition to be saved like Enoch?

Genesis 5:24 Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him.

1.Enoch did not believe Jesus was the Son of God. Was Enoch saved? YES.
2. Enoch did not confess that God raised Jesus from the dead. Was Enoch saved? YES.
3. Enoch was not baptized in water. He was not immersed for the forgiveness of sins. Was Enoch saved? YES.
4. Enoch did not believe that Jesus shed His blood on the cross so he could have his sins washed away. Was Enoch saved? YES.
5. Was Enoch born of the Spirit? No. The Holy Spirit of promise was not given until the Day of Pentecost. Was Enoch saved? YES.

WAS ENOCH SAVED? YES.

Can men, today, be saved like Enoch? ABSOLUTELY NOT.
Men, today, can only be saved by meeting the terms for pardon under the New Covenant; also know as the New Testament, the New Will, the New Agreement, the New Promise.

THE THIEF ON THE CROSS

Luke 23:39-43...And He said to him, :Truly I say to you, today you shall be with Me in Paradise."

1. The thief believed Jesus was the Christ. Was the thief saved?YES.
2. The thief repented. (He turn from sin and turned toward God). Was the thief saved? YES.
3. The thief did not confess that God had raised Jesus from the dead. Was the thief saved? YES.
4. The thief was not immersed in water for the forgiveness of his sins. Was the thief saved? YES.
5. The thief was not born of the Spirit? The thief did not receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. Was the thief saved? YES.

WAS THE THIEF SAVED? YES.

Can men, today, be saved like the thief on the cross?ABSOLUTELY NOT. Men, today, can only be saved by meeting the terms of pardon under the New Covenant.

The New Covenant came into effect after the death of Jesus, on the Day of Pentecost.

Hebrews 9:16-17 For where a covenant is, there must of necessity be the death of the one who made it. 17 For a covenant is valid only when men are dead, for it is never in force while the one who made it lives.

MEN,TODAY, CANNOT BE SAVED LIKE ENOCH NOR SAVED LIKE THE THIEF ON THE CROSS. ENOCH AND THE THIEF WERE NOT SAVED UNDER THE NEW COVENANT.

Note: The book of Acts contains several conversions that took place under the New Covenant. There is no record of anyone saying.
A. I do not have to believe that Jesus is the Son of God.
B. I do not have to be born of water and the Spirit.
C. I do not have to confess that Jesus was resurrected from the grave by God in order to be saved.
D. I do not have to be immersed in water in order to be saved.
E. I do not have to repent, (Turn from sin and turn to God), in order to be saved.

IN ORDER TO BE SAVED UNDER THE NEW COVENANT; WHICH STARTED ON THE DAY OF PENTECOST. YOU NEED TO MEET THE TERMS FOR PARDON.

FAITH: John 3:16
REPENTANCE: Acts 2:38
CONFESSION: Romans 10:9-10
BAPTISM: Acts 2:38, 1 Peter 3:21, Mark 16:16

YOU CANNOT BE SAVED LIKE ENOCH!

The problem is that most people don't understand why our country is in the financial shape it is now. Without understanding you can't fix the problem. See: http://canonicalthoughts.blogspot.com/ for insights into our countries finances, economics, trade, and the future of our nation. I'm trying to change that.

I don't know if you're still working with this blog, but here goes. I am also a UCC minister/pastoral counselor in NY. I've written a novel about Moses that I think reflects progressive theology. If interested, check it out at entospress.com. It seems difficult to publicize religious fiction that is not based in conservative Christian beliefs. This one certainly is not. You can contact me at office@entospress.com if you want more info beyond that in the website.
