Not much to say

A quiet day to  day so far.  I think it may be warmer, but I would not bet money on it.  We got a little rain but need lots more.  They were talking  about possibly today coming in today.  We think our neighbors have 2 dogs.  A large one and possibly a little rat terrier or some one that looks like one. Wonder of wonders, Joe just got up and it is only 7:40. so this  is a surprise.   I wish I didn’t have time to wait.  I am wanting it over.  Have not fallen asleep for about 5 days.  We watched Country Music awards last night.  They were good.  Let me tell you, the older ones like George Joes, Merle Haggard,Loretta Lynn and so many others are looking and acting their age or dead.  They may have made a lot of money but as far as ageing we are keepng up with them on age.  Clouding up like we will get rain.  I hope so. We need it desperately.  I need to get out there and pull up some to that crud that is spreading, in the yard.  Must go.

Yep, as long as you are having birthdays you are better off than many who would have given a fortune for just one more day, week or year. But Life just ain't like that. A fortune will not bring back life nor add one day.
So yep we are glad to keep up and surpass many.

We got your rain it seems, it was a rainy night in Georgia.
Well we are in South Carolina, just outside Georgia..

It has been raining here all morning with thunder and lightning. When I see how some of them have aged, and I thought hard work did that. Ha. I really don't worry about getting older as much as getting unable to do for myself and Grover. Um, you might could call that getting older, lol. Take care, Jean

Is it possible to be saved without having your sins forgiven? Was Saul saved by faith alone before his sins were forgiven?

If Saul was saved on the road to Damascus, then he was saved without having his sins forgiven.

Saul believed in Jesus on the road Damascus, but his sins were forgiven three days later in Damascus
Act 9:1-19......9 And he was three days without sight, and neither ate nor drank....

Saul sins were forgiven in Damascus, three days later, not on the road to Damascus.
Acts 22:1-16.....10 And I said, 'What shall I do Lord?' And the Lord said to me, 'Get up and go into Damascus, and there you will be told of all that has been appointed for you to do.'.......16 Now why do you delay? Get up and be baptized, and wash away your sins,calling on His name!

Saul was not saved by faith only. Saul was saved by believing and being baptized in water.

Jesus did not establish faith only salvation on the road to Damascus. Jesus confirmed what He already had said "He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved"... (Mark 16:16)

You cannot be saved unless your sins have been forgiven.

In order to support the doctrine of faith only men have offered many reasons why the Scriptures cannot be trusted.
1. The Bible is not the inerrant word of God, it has many errors and contradictions.
2. You have to be a Greek scholar to understand the Bible. If you understand the original Greek language, then you would know water baptism is not essential for forgiveness of sins.
3. You need to use extra-Biblical writings to understand the plan of salvation.
4. The Bible has been mistranslated, therefore men are saved by faith only and not the way it is presented in the Bible.

If God is not smart enough to give men an accurate translation of His plan for salvation and Christian living, then why would anyone trust in Him for salvation or for anything else.

God has given us His plan of salvation in many translations, in different languages. You do not have to know Greek.You do not have to have a Greek dictionary. You do have to be Greek. If men had to be able to read and understand original Greek to understand the Bible, then all Bibles would be in Greek.


Men are not saved by faith only and there is no verse of Scripture that states men are saved by faith only. Men are saved by faith, but not by faith only.

Lucy we are having bad rain and
it not as warm as usually.
I cannot believe how fast this
day has passed. The older I get the
faster the days go. Tell Spunky
to be careful going out if the dogs
next door are out, don't want him to get hurt again.

I missed the awards too and I like to watch them. We've had some much needed rain too. In fact I don't know how much we can get around at the ranch tomorrow. Good for the grass so John can stop burning pare.


Glad you got to enjoy the Country Music Awards. Always puts a smile on your face, I'm sure.
