    It's not about you. It's about Jesus and the Grace of God.

    Does God have "Grace" .. Does God glide across the dancefloor with "grace and style" ? and what about Jesus .. does Jesus not have Grace .. or does he have more grace than the the Father ?

    Not meant to be humorous .. Why are you avoiding the the question .. how do you know God has "Grace" - and does Jesus have comparable Grace .. and if not the ability to glide gracefully across a room - what do you mean by "Grace" .. what characteristic are you ascribing to God ?

    I'm not avoiding the question, I'm letting you off the hook easy. Or would you rather I lambaste you for asking such a basic question as if I'm the one who doesn't know the answer?

    Nothing basic about it - and did not infer that you did not know the answer - but given this is the second time you have wiggle out of an explanation - perhaps that is the case.

    A) how do you now that God has Characteristics such as "Grace"
    B) Does Jesus share this characteristic.

    Suppose you were talking to someone who grew up in an Indian Village and knows only Hindoo .. how would they know about Grace ?

    I have a question for you: what "gift" do you think you have?

    There are dozens of mentions of Grace from Genesis to the end of the Bible.

    Jesus is God

    I dont speak Hindi but I am sure Hindus have a concept of Grace.

    Now for the "basic" part - "Amazing Grace How Sweet The Sound That Saved a Wretch Like Me" - sound familiar?

    Happy now?

    And as far as me "wiggling out" of answering questions, the more inane your questions are the more likely I am to suspect that you are really not looking for an answer.

    I have a gift for sensing BS :) Your answer was pathetic - and you now it - just another attempt to wiggle out of coherent thought on the topic of Grace .. "Its in the Bible" is not a coherent answer - and in this case the Hindoo is interested in your concept of what Grace is ... not the Hindoo concept -which has zero to do with the Protestant concept.

    Your gift betrays you, you conjured up a truckload of BS in this ^ post. If you wanted to learn about God and Jesus where else would you look other than the Bible? What is "incoherent" about that? This answer is probably too coherent for you.

    Welcome to ignoreville.

    I asked you a question - you avoided the question saying "its in the Bible" - which is abject nonsense on steroids - like posting a link without quoting something from that link.. hence why such is against forum policy.

    You don't even state what it is in the Bible one is looking for - now leave this trail of BS - and back up your claim - that a Characteristic of God is Grace .. and state if Jesus shares this Characteristic .. - how " a wretch like you" is saved by this grace.. claimed by the Idol Martin that you worship.

    Go find a concordance, Strong's is a good one. They can be found online. Look up "grace". You will see several dozen Bible verses with the word "Grace" in them. Since Jesus is God he also has the attribute of Grace.

    This doesn't take long and it's easy to do, I'm not going to spoon feed it to you because if you can't be bothered to look for yourself then you dont want to know, you just want to pester me.

    Personally, I think you present the appearance of someone who is terribly ignorant but wants to give me a hard time with ridiculous arguments.

    I think a credit rating of over 740 and proof of at least $500 donated post election to the “stop the steal” Trump movement would be a darn good start!

    You are the one made claims in relation to the Grace of God .. the only thing that is " terribly Ignorant" is you claiming something and then asking others to back up your claims - that is laughable nonsense mate :)

    Jesus did not teach salvation by Grace. For someone who makes such bold claims about God - you don't seem to know much about the Bible - at least the teachings of Jesus..

    And for someone who doesn't know much about anything you have no right telling me me what I know and what I dont know.

    I wouldn't argue against that.

    However, Jesus did point out that there is another required element.

    In Matthew 25:31 or so to the end of the chapter Matthew quotes Jesus as stating requirements that HIS FOLLOWERS must follow if they don't want to end up in hell right along side of Satan.
