Conversion & Salvation

Conversion & Salvation
just wanna add a few things

Quote:The word know is a key here, it not only denotes head knowledge, but heart knowledge, experiential knowledge, knowing not just about someone, but knowing God.

Exactly ! It's an EXPERIENTAL KNOWLEDGE. Meeting Jesus has to be experiental, not merely a thought or feeling we have. It has to HAPPEN.
Quote:There is more than one witness that confirms the New Birth in us. The Word of God, the Scriptures come first. We know we can trust God to mean what he says, when he promises to receive us. When you're truly born of God the witness of the Holy Spirit is the second witness, who confirms, that you belong to him.

hmm... you talk about the witnesses who are present when salvation takes place. Acording to my views the Holy Spirit is always with you convicting of sin, then, when the road ends, you meet Christ that offers what the Father has , God's love. The entire Trinity is present, it makes perfect sense, for that is why God manifested Himself as a Trinity, to save us. What purpose would the Trinity have if salvation was merely an act of thought (faith as they call it).

Quote:The Greek word know has a deeper meaning, (including intimate knowledge of), not just limited to the knowledge of the mind:
ohh man, it's like i'm watching a sheepie looking at a bomb going off at the WTC saying "yeah, the arabs did it". I don't mean that in an offensive way, but rather, the truth is right in front of you ! Salvation is an experiental, literal, and intimate process, only you and God know about it when it takes place.
Matthew 7:14
Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
