    Who are the called and who are the few chosen
    from the the called?

    What is the criteria that Jesus the Christ
    will use to chose the few from the called
    to dwell with Him upon the new earth?

    I know the answer to all these questions.
    I just want to see if any of you know of them.

    KJV Micah 6
    8 He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?

    To walk with God you have to be holy.

    He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly in holiness with thy God?

    What is required of you by God to be holy?

    While I agree that we ought to walk in holiness, I contend against your inserting words into texts that do not have it. What God has said He has said. You could have quoted simmering else, like " be ye holy even as my Father in heaven is holy", or
    KJV Romans 6
    22 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.

    What you are doing is removing the context of the original scripture.

    It does not matter what you contend about what I have stated
    unless God judges in your favor against me.

    God will never deny the truth.

    I am safe with what I have stated to you.

    Salvation is by grace through repentance and faith in the blood and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

    No works. Works are for rewards after being born again.

    Please explain it to me
    without any errors or contradictions
    within your explanation.

    Start with this first;
    Salvation is by grace through repentance

    What you stated was correct. I said I agreed with your statement that we are required to be holy. I simply added that I dislike the way you added a word to a text which removes somewhat the meaning and intent of the original text. If God is going to judge me for that opinion, so be it.

    If you cannot explain it to me
    without any errors or contradictions
    that would mean you are not one of the chosen
    from the called.

    Truth is truth in any context.
    And it never changes in any context.

    Truth can be distorted and twisted to mean anything of the context is manipulated or tainted, such as Romans 1:25

    Give me an example
    how you can distort and twist the truth
    to mean anything of the context
    it is in in any form in any book.

    Let me see if it is the truth?

    Salvation comes as a gift from God subject to repentance of our sins to God.

    Easy. Walk contrary to the Commandments of God and your testimony turns your profession of truth into a lie. Walk pride and arrogance and your testimony of keeping the commandments is turned into a lie. May seem to be truth to you, but in reality it is a lie. Keeping Gods commandments is a truth. Yet in the minds of others if your life doesn't measure up, that truth turns into a lie and they live accordingly because your example sent them astray.

    Does that include all your sins at all time?

    How many times a day
    do you think you walk contrary to the commandments of God?

    Now you should know because you are required
    by commandment to confess all your sins.

    Of I put others down and accused them of error in theology based on what they did not say, but on what you thought they might say, I would confess my pride.

    Yes.

    Romans 8 makes a crystal clear.

    Otherwise, one is not saved or continually being nailed back on the cross.

    Do you think I am more or less prideful than you?
    Which is it?
