  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.

As a church we have to be devoted to teaching the truth

    It is important for us to preach the truth

    Maybe God will accept those who taught wrong if they really believed it may be right if they have works but I am not sure we have to assume you need to teach the truth therefore we have to teach others to turn from teaching false teachings to be saved some think works are evidence of salvation that if you really accepted Christ you would seek to do works that God can prepare for you to follow they may think you are not justified by works whether you did enough works that Christ can show you but evidence of salvation is that you will be seeking to do works when it especially seems required to

    Maybe they think if you have true faith then you will do works because you will seek to do works naturally as God shows you or you would have a heart to seek out God will. I don’t know if it is true but if one is always seeking to do works he may be accepted. Maybe the true teaching is you need to be seeking the will of God and to do works but if one did not know he can still do works I think but if one purposely delayed for however long time it could be harder for them if it is infact almost too late. But I don’t know works could be just what one ought to do when you see that someone is in need.
    People can not judge a person if he does not seem to be doing works because we do not earn salvation because we did a good thing because when we do we should not let our left hand know what our right hand is doing and some people know others are helping others and they also think it is best to sometimes help others in secret yet when there is an occasion in real life they are still doing works as Jesus said let your light shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.

    I believe the oil of the virgins is to truly receive one need for Christ and to not merely do good deeds but do good deeds for the sake of Christ because one truly loves others and wants them to be saved so if they believed someone was in need spiritually they would want to help them. They had deeds of love for others
