My Favorite Chopped Salad

As part of my commitment to eat cleaner and get more veggies in me in addition to losing weight, I've began having a salad for lunch every day. It's homemade, chopped, and delicious. I actually make enough for four to five servings of this salad to store in the refrigerator. The avocado combined with the olive oil give it a wonderful flavor, and the protein source I tend to stick with (turkey salami or deli ham or turkey breast) have enough sodium in them so there really is no need to use a salad dressing or salt. The olive oil also prevents the salad from getting soggy. It's a very healthy make-ahead meal. Win/win!

· 2 cups fresh baby spinach
· 1/4 to 1/2 cup raw broccoli, florets only
· 1/4 to 1/2 cup raw cauliflower, florets only
· 1/8 to 1/4 cup raw red bell pepper, diced
· 1/8 cup raw corn, fresh from the cob
· 1/8 cip tomato, diced
· 1/4 cup diced cucumber, raw with peel
· 1/4 a medium haas avocado, cubed
· 1 tsp 100% pure extra virgin olive oil
· protein source (I love turkey cotto salami!)
· 1 hard-boiled egg white, chopped
· 1/2 oz reduced-fat feta or grated parmesan cheese
· coarsely ground black pepper

Chop all vegetables and combine together. Drizzle with the olive oil and stir well to combine. Seal and store in the refrigerator until ready to eat.

To serve: Give the salad a good stir. Add however much you want to a plate or bowl. Top with your protein, hard-boiled egg white, cheese, and black pepper. Stir well to combine the flavors. Enjoy. (=

    Is it possible to be saved without having your sins forgiven? Was Saul saved by faith alone before his sins were forgiven?

    If Saul was saved on the road to Damascus, then he was saved without having his sins forgiven.

    Saul believed in Jesus on the road Damascus, but his sins were forgiven three days later in Damascus
    Act 9:1-19......9 And he was three days without sight, and neither ate nor drank....

    Saul sins were forgiven in Damascus, three days later, not on the road to Damascus.
    Acts 22:1-16.....10 And I said, 'What shall I do Lord?' And the Lord said to me, 'Get up and go into Damascus, and there you will be told of all that has been appointed for you to do.'.......16 Now why do you delay? Get up and be baptized, and wash away your sins,calling on His name!

    Saul was not saved by faith only. Saul was saved by believing and being baptized in water.

    Jesus did not establish faith only salvation on the road to Damascus. Jesus confirmed what He already had said "He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved"... (Mark 16:16)

    You cannot be saved unless your sins have been forgiven.

    In order to support the doctrine of faith only men have offered many reasons why the Scriptures cannot be trusted.
    1. The Bible is not the inerrant word of God, it has many errors and contradictions.
    2. You have to be a Greek scholar to understand the Bible. If you understand the original Greek language, then you would know water baptism is not essential for forgiveness of sins.
    3. You need to use extra-Biblical writings to understand the plan of salvation.
    4. The Bible has been mistranslated, therefore men are saved by faith only and not the way it is presented in the Bible.

    If God is not smart enough to give men an accurate translation of His plan for salvation and Christian living, then why would anyone trust in Him for salvation or for anything else.

    God has given us His plan of salvation in many translations, in different languages. You do not have to know Greek.You do not have to have a Greek dictionary. You do have to be Greek. If men had to be able to read and understand original Greek to understand the Bible, then all Bibles would be in Greek.


    Men are not saved by faith only and there is no verse of Scripture that states men are saved by faith only. Men are saved by faith, but not by faith only.
