Recently I was watching a show on television in which one of the character stated that his father was a homosexual preacher. Immediately, my curiosity was peaked. If God blesses people with the gift of preaching/ teaching His Word, can that gift be lost because of our sin? I think about Peter, one of Jesus' disciples, who appeared to have an issue with his temper; David had an issue with adultery; or Moses the murder, we're all used by God to accomplish his purpose. I believe that once God gives you a gift, it is always there regardless of your relationship with our Savior. What do you think?

You r rt "not using the gifts given!" GOD will hold u accountable for WORD is there for ALL to STUDY but don't!
We are "sealed" (II Cor 1:22) IF "in Christ" but 1 MUST be "IN CHRIST" filled w/the HS! The ONLY WAY 1 can be "IN CHRIST!"
God is love and all truths about you hang on this: 2 The Pharisees and the teachers of the Law are experts in the Law of Moses. 3 So obey everything they teach you, but don’t do as they do. After all, they say one thing and do something else.
What is wrong w/u? Do u not know we r no longer under the law (Gal 4)? Matt, Mk, Lk & Jn under LAW!
The HS "leads & guides" us under NC!
WOW! Why don't u STUDY instead of "trying" to throw rocks while hiding hand?
U CAN'T WITHSTAND GOD "FO
Pharisee. You do not know love and so you cannot know God.
I CERTAINLY DO NOT KNOW "YOUR DEFINITION" OF LOVE WHICH IS NOT GOD'S! UNLESS ONE IS "IN CHRIST," ONE ONLY LIVES BY MAN'S DEFINITION OF LOVE & THAT PLAYS OUT (AS WE CAN SEE)!
TRUTH IS LOVE, LOVE IS GOD, GOD IS WORD!
The word law is a bad translation to English. Teachings would be closer to "torah" and no the teachings of God never go away. You shall not murder, hate, steal etc. the covenant with Christ doesn't nullify God's teachings. He lived God's teachings.
I don't think the spiritual gifts are something we learn in school or from our parents. When I all of a sudden can do something I never did before or trained for, that is a spiritual gift from God. It will be verified by other like minded.
AGAIN, I ASK, CAN "u" OUT "do" GOD (HS)? WHAT DO U THK HS WAS SENT FOR (JN 14:26;16:13)? IS HE NOT "HELPER?" HE MUST "HELP," OR WORD WOULDN'T HAVE SAID (RE:GRACE aka HS aka JESUS) "NOT OF "WORKS" (BUT "GIFT"), LEST ANY MAN SHOULD "BOAST" (EPH 2:9)!
Would u feed a one month old baby meat or would you give the baby milk? See I Cor 3. Use your weapon (Word) appropriately. Maybe you heard the saying you catch more bees with honey than you do with flies.
NOT TRYING TO "CATCH BEES" RATHER GIVE "TRUTH" IN HIS WORD SOMETHING "RELIGION" HAS NOT DONE BUT "TWISTED" (NICENE COUNCIL)! MAN MUST LRN TO "WALK IN THE SPIRIT" (GAL 5:16) BLV & HAVE FAITH FOR MANIFESTATION OF "WORKS" via THE HOLY SPIRIT! HARD?N
Pro 15:17 Better a small serving of vegetables with love than a fattened calf with hatred.
TRUTH IS LOVE! WHAT IS UR DEF? IF U LOVE ONE DON'T U TELL THEM TRUTH? WHAT PART OF WORD IS NOT "TRUE?" IS THAT NOT WHAT I GIVE? DID GAL 5:16 NOT SAY "WALK IN THE SPIRIT?" DID RM 8:8 NOT SAY "THOSE "IN FLESH" CANNOT PLS GOD?"
NO JN 4:24=LOST!
You cannot walk in His spirit when you want to keep what is deceiving you. You cannot know what word to give when you are not listening. You cannot speak of spiritual things when you are knotted up your own flesh. knees, repent, receive.
IT SOUNDS LIKE U R PREACHING TO YOURSELF! HAVE U NOTICED? STOP TALKING SO MUCH & GO & "STUDY" IN PRAYER "ASKING FOR REVELATION" W/ (KEY) "A PURE HEART!"
IF U KNEW THE OT IS "JESUS CONCEALED," VS THE NT "JESUS REVEALED," U'D UNDERSTAND DEUT! NOTHING "LITERAL" PETE! "WHORING" IS SERVING OTHER gods!
ANTICHRIST=JESUS IS "NOT" FM GOD (1 SPIRIT;I COR 12) OR 1 DOESN'T BLV I TIM 3:16 "IN THE WRLD "TODAY!"
Better to follow the Anti Christ then Christ, the Anti christ gave us the great roman Empire, Democracy, age of enlightment, indusrial revolution. Christ gave us, dark ages, crusades, inquisition
'"THE WORLD" DOES FOLLOW THE ANTI CHRIST! WHY I'M ON HP!
UNFORTUNATELY, U WILL NEVER KNOW THE SPIRIT (POWER) OF GOD "IF" U KEEP "LOOKING" @ MATERIAL THINGS V SPIRITUAL!
"IF" U COULD "MATURE" TO THAT REALM (SPIRITUAL), "OPINION" WOULD CHANGE!
Christ is a false god, who deliver us to the dark ages. And forbid the people from doing anything to end the black plague, letting this horrible disease killing most of Europe's population, without Christ, we would have found a cure for it.
IF SO, FURNISH ANOTHER BK WITH "AS MANY ACCURATE "FULFILLED PROPHECIES" AS THE BIBLE, THEN WE CAN TALK!
I COR 2:14 "BUT THE "NATURAL MAN" RECVTH NOT THE THGS OF THE SPIRIT OF GOD: FOR THEY ARE "FOOLISHNESS" UNTO HIM.."
"GROW UP" (SPIRITUALLY)!
[BUT THE "NATURAL MAN" RECVTH NOT THE THGS OF THE SPIRIT OF GOD: FOR THEY ARE "FOOLISHNESS" UNTO HIM.] Christ = dark ages, anti christ=age of enlightment, it sound like it is those who follow christ, who are foolish
AS "MAN" HAS (BE NICE, ME) A "BEHIND," SO DOES HE HAVE "AN OPINION" BUT IS NOT TRUE OR THE "WORD OF GOD!"
THEREFORE, ACCORDING TO "MY BELIEF," YOU BELIEVE "FOOLISHNESS!"
Big talk for some guy living in a world of advancement, freedom, safety and prosperity given u by the antichrist, not living in the horror of dark ages, given by christ
ACCORDING TO "MY BELIEF," "small talk" FOR SOMEONE ENJOYING A "WORLDLY LIFE" CHRIST HAS GIVEN KNOWLEDGE TO "man" TO CREATE!
TO EACH HIS OWN BUT IF NOT ACCORDING TO "WORD," THE INEVITABLE WILL TELL - WON'T IT?
ALL U HAVE IS LUCK SINCE U DON'T BLV!
Really? Age of Enlightment= anti christ, science = anti christ, human right = anti christ, equality = anti christ. inqusition = christ, destroying bible contradicting knowledge (eg earth is over 5000 years old) = christ, killing scientists = christ.
GOOD FOR YOU!
SATAN'S BELIEF! HE'S WAITING FOR YOU!
Peter I have met some in my day. But I have never met a person that really agonized over 500 year old deaths. Good for you. Now about rectifying that?
I do not think we can for you. My prayers go out to your anguish. Wish I could take the blame.
ERIC: YOUR BELIEF TOO?
I KNEW YOU WERE SATAN ALSO BECAUSE BIRDS OF A FEATHER FLOCK TOGETHER (PS 119:63)!!
"GOOD FOR YOU ERIC!" NOW THE WORLD KNOWS WHO YOU REALLY ARE!!
HIS FATHER IS WAITING FOR YOU TOO (JN 8:44)!!
There is only one true liar and that is Christ, who teach lies such as earth is only 5000 years old. The anti christ open our eyes to the truth, through the age of enlightment
THE "AGE OF ENLIGHTENMENT" IS OF THE WORLD AS YOU - SATAN!
THIS IS A "SPIRITUAL" (HOLY) NOT A SATANIC (NON SPIRITUAL, WORLDLY) MOVEMENT!
IF U DO NOT "CONFESS THAT JESUS CHRIST HAS COME IN THE FLESH FM GOD" U R "ANTICHRIST" OR "SATAN!"
IT IS WRITTEN!
Christ is an evil liar that teach earth is only 5000 years old and execute people for presenting fact that contradict him. The anti christ is the one and only true god
Peter are you OK? You sound a bit under the weather. Can someone help you. Christ does not say anything you say he does. Is there something we can do to help you?
Prove that Anti Christ is the real god https://www.openbible.info/topics/antichrist
Prove that Christ is evil/false god
What happen to the spirit you waited for? It is not there, the hate, calling names, finger pointing, all attributes of darkness. So yes you can lose something you may have had. Once saved always saved, I think not Calvin. He is an if then God.
You've only been "taught" the "love" of GOD. HE has another side for those who r not "IN CHRIST!" Tore up Temple (not in Christ), Scribes & Pharisee called hypocrites (not in Christ), against WORD (Gal 3:1="FOOLS;" not in Christ)! Not taught that
I am aware of God, His Son and the Holy Spirit, God has sent to be with us. Peter was chosen by Christ the Son of God not God. You don't have the basics down yet attempt to speak of spiritual things? You have a spirit of deception. Call no one fool.
If WORD (GOD) calls one FOOL, who am I? Do u ever READ? If so, I Cor 12 tells us it's not a dad & lil boy but "ONE SPIRIT!"
"IF" u would READ, u could see WORD says "ONE SPIRIT" which is OMNIPRESENT but WHO CARES, Nicene Council (man) has spoken
You called people fools. Cutting and pasting out of context stuff is not God. That spirit of deception is showing it's ugly head again.
"IF" u continue NOT TO READ WORD, I will call u a FOOL again (II Tim 2:15) because u disobey WORD!
U call it "spirit of deception" when asked to STUDY WORD? I call it a FOOL!
Matt 23 "2 The Pharisees and the teachers of the Law are experts in the Law of Moses. 3 So obey everything they teach you, but don’t do as they do. After all, they say one thing and do something else."
WHY DON'T U GO SOMEWHERE & "STUDY" (II TIM 2:15) THE BIBLE FOR YOU SOUND "IGNORANT" (I THESS 4:13-18)!
God is love. My view if Christ may be different than your view based upon my relationship and knowledge of Him. We do not have to convince another believer that my way is the right way. State your position and trust that the Holy Spirit will teach
THAT VIEW MAKES WORD A LIE! EPH 4:4-6 SAYS "ONE BODY" & "ONE SPIRIT!" DOES YOUR "ONE BODY" HAVE DIFF "VIEWS?" IF SO, SICK! "IF" WE'D FOLLOW EX OF 1ST CHURCH, WE'D SEE "WITH "ONE" ACCORD" (ACTS 2:1)! IT IS WRITTEN! WHY MOST DON'T FOLLOW, I DON'T
The "God is love" statement is normally not denied. But we are to be disciples of Christ and that Journey will make us Christ like. Trying to define something we only see slightly is hard. Love will be our finished product, not excuse.
RICH, U CONT TO "DENY THE "POWER" OF GOD" (ACTS 1:8)! DO U REALLY THK UR power ("works/do") CAN WITHSTAND GOD'S? GOD HAS SENT U A "HELPER" (HS) & U THROW "GIFT" BACK N HIS FACE! HOW'D U FEEL IF SOMEONE THREW A GIFT U'D GIVEN BACK IN UR FACE?
You continue to sound like a gong where no one really cares anymore what you say. The fairy tale about the boy that cried wolf should be at the top of your reading list. You are truly a mean spirited person.
HEB 4:12 "CUTS" BUT TRUE!
HOW'D U FEEL? TELL ME!
AND U DO "JESUS" LIKE THIS?
WHO'S "MEAN SPIRITED?"
STOP WORKING FOR HE (JESUS aka HS) WORKS BETTER!
WE CAN'T KEEP NEW YR'S RESOLUTIONS LET ALONE THE WORD OF GOD! U KNOW THIS!
USE THE "GIFT!"
A deceiving mean spirited gong is not a gift from God it is the work of your flesh. Something has taken your comprehension, I'd be mad if I were you, maybe that's why you are so ugly and nasty to everyone.
IT'S HARD BECAUSE OF THE "HARDNESS OF UR HEART" TO GET U TO "STUDY" BCUZ "RELIGION" (NICENE COUNCIL) HAS INSTILLED PRECONCVD IDEAS N U!
ALL I ASKED U TO DO IS "STUDY" W/AN "OPEN MIND" (ACTS 17:11) & U REFUSE TO GIVE JESUS AN OPPORTUNITY 2 REVEAL
The wise of heart is called discerning, and sweetness of speech increases persuasiveness.
AGAIN, I GIVE "WORD!" HEB 4:12 SAYS "CUTS!" ESPECIALLY WHEN NOT IN AGRMNT W/1'S BELIEF! "SWEETNESS" WHEN IT "CUTS?" STOP LOOKING @ MSGR & LOOK "IN THE SPIRIT" @ HIS WORD FOR THAT'S THE "ONLY THING" THAT CAN "SAVE" YOU!
Norine, perhaps no one is saying this truthfully to you. Your style is repulsing people. You are driving them away from what you want them to know because of how you are doing it. If your goal is to attract then you need to act attractive.
You do not give word you give letters and numbers shouted at people with anger. Your responses shows you don't listen. Two ears one mouth, you would think you have two mouths and one ear. Your gong is so loud you can hear nothing anyone else says.
SEE WHAT RELIGION HAS DONE! NOT TRUTH BUT "SYRUPY SWEET" LIES IS ALL U WANT TO HEAR! THAT'S WHY WORD SAYS "STUDY" WHEN TOLD SOMETHING DIFF FM UR BELIEF! DID THEY NOT IN SCRIPTURE (ACTS 17:11)! WE "GROW" IN CHRIST; NOT "COMPLACENT" (II COR 3:18)!
Norine I am just not seeing that what you say is reason to be obnoxious and rude. You do know for instance that on the internet all caps is yelling?
ERIC: EVEN IN CAPS, DO YOU REALLY KNOW WHAT I AM SAYING? IF SO, TELL ME WHAT I'M TRYING TO TELL ALL WHAT WORD SAYS "SPECIFICALLY?"
I forgot you worship a different Jesus, you think He is God. When you figure out He is the Son of God that would be a good first step, until then every thing from your keyboard is shrouded in darkness. May you come to know God's only begotten Son.
Norine, you got me there, even after all your screaming I do not get your point. To me it sounds like ranting and raving of lunacy. But that is just me. Yelling "WORD" all the time sounds like an Eastern mantra except they would speak it softly.
R: U call Scripture a LIE (I Cor 12)? ONE SPIRIT! If so, then there's not a Son but One who came into world who is less than Father who NEVER has! U lrn to "Worship in Spirit" (Jn 4:24) then we can communicate!
E: I Cor 2:14!
You worship a different Jesus. Jesus will say I never knew you. You can't know anything of His spirit cause you deny the Son of God. No one comes to the Father except by His Son Jesus. Receive Him today.
U'RE SO "SPIRITUALLY" SHALLOW! DO U REALLY THINK THERE IS ANYTHING "SPIRITUAL" OR "SUPERNATURAL" ABOUT A DADDY (FATHER) & HIS LITTLE BOY (SON)? DID U READ JN 4:24? HE TRIED TO GET ON MAN'S LVL! U "WORSHIP" LITERALLY-NOT A "TRUE WORSHIPER"
Thank you, I knew you didn't believe or know what you are talking about, now everyone else does also, by your own keyboard. How dark is the darkness to make fun of God and His Son.
Whew that is off the charts strange. Norine, what are you talking about? "Daddy"? You have really lost it.
R: LEARN TO "WALK IN THE SPIRIT" (GAL 5:16) IS THE "KEY" (WHICH DOESN'T MEAN "WALK" DOWN SIDEWALK, "LITERALLY")!
NOW, "IF" U CAN DO THAT, & "LOOK" @ WORD IN THAT REALM, U "MIGHT" UNDERSTAND (U SHOULD'VE "WAITED!") THERE IS NOT A DADDY & LIL
Why would u throw rock & hide hand @ the expense of ur knowledge of WORD? Makes u sound IGNORANT (I Cor 12:28;Eph4:11)!
Once "IN CHRIST" (after "WAITING" for HS), we r "righteous by faith" (Rm 3:22;5:1) unless "WILLFUL" after "KNOWING" (Heb 10:2
If you remain in Him He will remain in you. So it is not a once you, light switch thing. You are a perfect example. There is no example in scripture of a person filled with the spirit acting like you do. We are righteous because we do what he says.
HS ("IF" HE DWELLS IN U) "leads & guides" u & u have no desire to do anything "unrighteous!" Again, not about me! STOP! Telling TRUTH is throughout WORD!We don't "DO,"HS does it better!DId u read Rm2:22;5:1?"Righteous by FAITH!" Eph 2:9 No
Your actions are your actions don't blame the Holy Spirit. If you don't stop sinning the HS is going to do it for you. You are righteous because you DO righteous things. You can look at people that claim one thing and see another then the claim false
U should ALWAYS go by WORD not a person's actions (II Tim 2:15=STUDY)! I Sam 16:7!
If in WORD, TRUE, not "sinning!"
Why GOD "looks @ heart" & not like u (Thank GOD)!
Now, it's time u LOOK @ WORD & not me!
I pray for Norine. And I feel that she is a testament. Of what Christians should not do. And she testifies so well. God is good and He loves her. Man is kind and he tolerates her.
You'd better READ WORD to see if it's Norine or GOD (Acts 17:11)!
You are not God and you are not the word. We are to be doers of the word, commandment of Christ. So if we don't see you being a doer of the word, what are people to think? You do have responsibility before God and man. The I'm not responsible card?
Good for you some preacher convinced you that you speak for God. Or you came up with it on your own and that might be scarier. In either event you scare people -- tell me you do not have the wherewithall to track IP addresses to actual ones- please
When ANYONE uses GOD'S WORD, they are GOD (for "the WORD is GOD" (Jn 1:1), "remember?")! HS makes us "doers!" No one CAN "do" better! NOPE! The WORD "card!"
Eric: Lol! U're "funny!" Got ur attention though, didn't I? HS knows how to do ALL!
When we walk away do we take the gift with us?or so we leave the gift?
I don't think we take the gift with us, the gift is Him. I don't know why you would want to leave after learning of Christ doesn't sound right to me, but Israel walked away from God many times over history.
KNOW: WERE U WAITING FOR ME?
IF WE WERE "IN CHRIST," WE TAKE IT (I TIM 4:14-16) BUT II PET 2:21 WHICH SOUNDS LIKE HEB 10:26!
STAY "ROOTED & GROUNDED" IN HIS WORD!
WHY I CONT TO SAY "STUDY"(II TIM 2:15)FOR "GROWTH"(II COR 3:18)
Another possibility is that many people may never have had what ever gift they claim to have or had. So maybe the answer is no you don't loose it if you really got it from God and not something man has created. Just a different perspective
WHY DON'T U READ INSTEAD OF VOICING "YOUR PERSPECTIVE" WHICH DOESN'T MOUNT TO A HEEL OF BEANS!
READ I COR 12! IT'S IN THE BIBLE! WE "ALL" R GIVEN "SPIRITUAL GIFTS," BUT I GUESS NOT IF NEVER "IN CHRIST!" U'VE MADE THAT "PLAIN!"
CONT 2 SHOW WHO U R!
