Words of wisdom for today

No dialogue/No fellowship with darkness

I have no desire to know what other religions believe, that means do not go trying to share with me what you believe. This means all those who are not born again Christians are forever lost, unless they also turn to the Lord Jesus Christ. This means I do not open dialogue with muslims, catholics and whatever else is wandering around out there. Without salvation by grace alone there is no salvation. Whenever, some kind of work is added to faith it negates faith, because it ceases to be faith if works is added note especially verse 6 there is a huge chasm that exists between faith and works each negates the other:

But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal.
(Rom 11:4)

Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.
(Rom 11:5)

And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.
(Rom 11:6)

What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded
(Rom 11:7)

(According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.
(Rom 11:8)
I have chosen to follow the Lord Jesus Christ and in so doing to follow God in my beliefs and every day practice, it is completely of grace and I owe it all to my savior Jesus Christ. This means I give reproof to all religions out side of the Christian faith, if they practice some type of idol worship or worship of human design then they are not saved. This includes the muslim and the catholic, for both of these practice idolatry. All words that come from an unbeliever are to be suspected of being lies. I consider the present practice of having dialogs with different faiths as evidence of a lack of faith for the Christian that attempts this. We are taught in the book of Ephesians to have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but to rather reprove them, this word fellowship can be translated dialog.

Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;
(Eph 5:1)

And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.
(Eph 5:2)

But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;
(Eph 5:3)

Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.
(Eph 5:4)

For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.
(Eph 5:5)

Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.
(Eph 5:6)

Be not ye therefore partakers with them.
(Eph 5:7)

For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:
(Eph 5:8)

(For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)
(Eph 5:9)

Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.
(Eph 5:10)

And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
(Eph 5:11)

For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.
(Eph 5:12)

But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.
(Eph 5:13)

Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.
(Eph 5:14)

See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,
(Eph 5:15)

Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
(Eph 5:16)

Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.
(Eph 5:17)
