    Is it right to try to save someone when they have already been saved by Jesus Christ?

    I have someone hounding me because I do not prescribe to their "Church" teachings and they are saying bad things about me.  This is not only here but they are spreading their filth in other places.  They tell me that they are trying to "SAVE" me.  I have already been "SAVED".  What makes it their business to go around "SAVING" people?

    Why should anyone have to "save" anyone but themselves? Live and let live.  It's nobodies place to tell anyone else how to live, especially people you do not know etc.  We are all here to walk our own path.  People need to fix themselves first before "worrying" about everyone else.  I tend to find those who need to "save" others - are the ones who are masters of avoidance and facing their own shortcomings.

    Yes because you know the saying, every little bit helps.

    They're not trying to "save you". They're trying to "recruit you".
    A lot of these smaller churches in particular encourage their members to bring new blood into the organization. More members means more income for the church, and more income means more political clout in the community.

      Oh no, she said that she didn't hate me she was just trying to "SAVE" me.Speaking bad about a person will never get them on your side...ever.  Instead of learning and understanding she professes that I am UN-SAVED and that I don't know what I am talk

      I never said she hated you. Clearly (she likes you) and thinks you ought to be a member of (her church). By "recruiting" I meant the members are out to enlarge the membership of (their) church by recruiting "quality people".

      LOL I guess she feels put off because I don't want to be a member of her church. LOL!

    Nothing could be 'right' enforced by religious notion in 'churching' game promoting " salvation " which is a personal business between Jesus and a person itself, especially if it  comes as a judgmental accusation based upon an author's article.
    In my case I would leave those comments untouched, heaving them exposed to the publick reaction.

      When I wrote that I liked someones hub I was pounced on by a number of those ppl.  No one can to my defence.  The hubber who wrote the hub deleted one of the comments or HP did bcuz many reported that one. I am NOT to be believed, period, they say

      Is there need for a 'defense ' when a person is right, standing on absolute truth? Living ordinary life arguments arise in pursuing the ultimate truth and that takes courage to be involved in  maintaining  courteousness, tolerance and mutual respect.

      debra-- based on the false doctrines I have seen you espouse on here I would say she is using her discernment and is correct.

    They are the ones whose souls are in danger. By danger I mean they will be creating Karma for themselves. I don't believe in the Biblical hell. I think we create our own hells right here on earth, and part of those is putting up with do-gooders. I have to put up with my best friend telling me that she's glad that I was baptized in the Baptist Church when I was a kid because "once saved, always saved". This is none of my business, Debra, but have you been baptized? If so, tell them you've been baptized and if it's good enough for Jesus, it's good enough for you. It's none of their business either, but maybe it will shut them up if you can't avoid them.

      I thought that was clear in my answer.  Yes, I have been baptised.  I was baptised in the Baptist church when I was 16 years old.  That is all they need to know.

      But being baptized does not make you automatically saved.  It's what is in your heart.

      Well if that be ture then you have not been saved by your fruit and actions and you horrible thoughts of others.  Holier Than Thou does not cut it with me.  Jesus never said to put oneself on a pedestal and order others around.
