The moderators DID indeed remove contributions here in the past - questions and, sometimes, just individual answers.

Some contributions bring Christianity into disrepute and those are the ones which should never see the light of day or, if they slip through, should be removed a.s.a.p. afterwards.

You wrote: It would be a good thing if this question were to be removed i.m.o. because it seems to be inciting hatred amongst some users.

If the moderators removed every single topic where people got involved in mud-slinging, etc., there would be virtually no topics left! There are some people who have nothing better to do than shove their own personal theological agendas down everyone else's throats, hijacking one blog after another for the same purpose, and/or calling anyone names or worse if they don't agree with those agendas. It's best to just speak to such people calmly and factually, or just ignore them.

Rita,
If they were to remove the blog for the reasons you give, you might have to remove all of those Lawrence puts down what he does. And every blog he has answered, it has always been to condemn Trinitarians. With no proof. It's true, no body knows everything, but when we have something to say, we should support it with some Biblical passages. Agape
---Luke on 8/25/14


God gives discernment to some Christians but not to others. That does not give people here the right to accuse others of having Satan speak through them. When one does that another is going to retaliate and that is not Christlike.

It would be a good thing if this question were to be removed i.m.o. because it seems to be inciting hatred amongst some users.
---Rita_H on 8/24/14




Lawrence:

Funny, when I read Revelation 17:4-6 (which you mention over and over again), I don't see any mention of "trinity churches". You must be reading between the lines. Also funny how you condemn those who read between the lines of the Bible and see "trinity" when it isn't actually written anywhere. If you want to condemn others for jumping to erroneous conclusions based on personal opinions of things that aren't actually written there, you should refrain from doing exactly the same thing.

==As well as through Cluny.
---Jed on 8/21/14==

Where have I denied that Jesus Christ is God Incarnate?

Where have I denied that He was crucified, died, rose from the dead, and ascended into heaven?

Where have I denied that Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are three separate Persons, but one God? This is something that Lawrence denies all the time.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 8/23/14



Look at the doctrine being taught.

For example, the devil speaks through Lawrence all the time.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Dear barb,
Thank you for your answer. You are right concerning the blog question. I thought you were responding to what we wrote. I am sorry. And glad you believe in the Trinity. We have a few things in common. Agape
---Luke on 8/15/14




Matthew 22:40 "On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets."
Love towards God and neighbour.
John 3:19 "And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil."

barb, I do not see any wrong in what you stated on 8/13/14.
---Nana on 8/15/14


Luke, not sure how I took the passages out of context but will try to explain. The blog question is "How do you know if the devil is speaking through someone"?. My answer was if a person is not speaking according to the law and the prophets there is no light in them and I meant to show that is how one knows whether the speaker's source is of God (Light) or of Satan (darkness). I read the question and answered it not realizing it had gone off track..I guess.

Yes, I believe in the Trinity, three persons in One. The Holy Spirit and the Son came forth from the God the Father.
---barb on 8/14/14


Dear barb,
I see you do not answer all the time, but here you say,

//If a person is not speaking according to the law and the testimony (prophets) there is no light in him/her, therefore you can know they are speaking out of darkness, not Light. Isaiah 8:20, John 8:12.//

you gave these passages out of context, and did not explain if you were upset at the answers given here, and trying to make a point, but didn't say what your point is. I already know you do not believe in the whole Word of God, Scripture, but do you believe in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit? In other words are you a believer in the Trinity? It's ok if you are not. I just wanted to know where you are coming from, and why you stated what you did. Agape

Luke
Yes Im happy with joy in The Acts Church of The Living God. The which Christians were first called in Antioch. The Straight n Narrow way. Which are few.
---Lawrence on 8/13/14


//Luke
Respond to compromise, No thank God. Because I do Not desire to be in the family body of believers of The ABOMINATINS OF THE EARTH, Rev. 17 vs 4 - 6. Which Are many.//

Lawence,
I was not inviting you to anything, or anyplace, I was responding to what you say only. You can consider yourself a heretic, an enemy of Christianity if you want, in fact you can be what you want. We were not complaining about what you are, only what you keep saying without facts. That was all, I still say, have a happy life, agape

---Lawrence on 8/12/14


Lawrence,
You can stand on whatever you desire. I do not mind. But please stop calling others mockers. In our minds you are the mocker. Can we change you? No, of course not. We can only respond to your deliberate remarks. If you wanted to reason together, it would have been great, but you really only come on to throw stones at others. With the same judgment you will be judged. No matter if you believe in the Trinity or not.
---Luke on 8/12/14


Luke n others.
You's can go ahead n stand for the Rev. 17 vs 4-6 trinity churches which Are many. The wide gate.

I'l stand with The Acts Church of The Living God. Which Are few. The straight Narrow way.
Matt. 7 vs 13 - 14.
---Lawrence on 8/11/14


Dear Lawrence,
The Trinity is Scriptural, you just do not see it. If you had read the Bible you would know that the Three distinct Persons of the Trinity, is the same God in their Divine nature. But you cannot see spiritual matters. So you give Acts 2:38 which really does not proof anything in your case. Peter said,
"Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit."
All believers after they are saved by grace, receive the Person of the Holy Spirit in His divine nature, who will change and teach and seal the believer.
---Luke on 8/11/14

When ministers speak n is Not scriptural, trinity is Not scriptural, No where to be found.

Acts 2 v 38 Is scriptural.

Glory to God n Father which who Is Jesus Christ. Colo. 2 v 9, Him who? Jesus Christ.
---Lawrence on 8/10/14


The voice of the Father is the voice of edification, peace, comfort, strength, and love. Anything outside of the parameters of His name (nature) is not of Him and must be the enemy.
---Linda6563 on 3/27/08


Satan is not omnipresent which means he cannot be in a million places at one time. He can only be in one place at one time. Most of the time it's our own flesh that is speaking, we are wicked by nature.

However it is true that demons can speak through a person (Acts 19:15) and it is true that Satan can possess a person (Luke 22:3).

You will know if Satan is speaking through someone by their fruits.

It is impossible to know, unless you are walking very close to God.

I tend to gear more toward "what is not God" instead of "what is the devil". The devil is defeated. We are to resist him and give him no place. There are a lot of thoughts, attitudes, and motives of the carnal mind that may sound good but are "not God". When it comes to the enemy talking, the first thing I notice is accusation and condemnation. Another thing is fear. Fear is not of God.
---Linda6563 on 8/12/07


Jack, he may be able to deceive someone into thinking that their good things are God, but he cannot imitate God. I guess you could say that is where true intimacy with the Father comes in.
---Linda6563 on 9/18/06


Jack, I think I may be able to answer your question. The devil lies and people choose to believe his lies over God's word. That's how he gets to people. They forget "he is a liar and the father of lies" so when he lies, they choose to believe them. Sad, but true, huh?
---Donna9759 on 9/18/06


** "If the devil can appear as an angel of light, then it stands to reason that his utterances can imitate edification, peace, comfort, strength, and love."

If you say so Jack.**

You mean the devil CAN'T imitate these good things? If he couldn't how could people be led astray by his counterfeits?

First, KNOW that Satan can quote God's word. Second, know that God has to honor His word regardless of who speaks it. Third, know that God is NOT always loveydovey in His ways. The best way to know Satan is by using the Bible as a Filter. What goes in the front and exits the back is pure GOD. Anything less is the other guy...

The best way to know when the devil is speaking through someone is to know what the bible says about a certain subject.
---mima on 9/16/06


You know if the Devil is speaking through someone, when it is not in scripture. Some would have you believe the Holy Spirit works independently from the WORD of God. The Trinity is all working together in one accord.
Anything else is a cult. They believe that they are three separate diety's.

Fear, confusion, delayed hope, envy, etc. are all the opposite of who Father God is. His sheep know His voice and a stranger they will not follow.

---Linda6563 on 9/15/06


Test the spirits and see if they are of God -- "Has Jesus Christ come in the flesh?" -- The devil will never say yes to that. Also what is being spoken will in no way line up with the word of God. For example, someone said to me last year that they felt it very strong on them to "go to the 'so and so' Bank" - that was meant for me and I knew that I knew it was not God. The person is not saved and I had not even prayed about that.
---Helen_5378 on 9/15/06


When the devil is literally speaking through someone, The person is either blank and other worldly.
The Devil's favorite's are apathy and hatred. This is possesion's portrait. A demon only wants to devour and destroy even if it's only a thought at a time. Thank God for Angels.

When the Devil is influencing a person their speech is without hope. Apathy is the devil's launching pad, and fear is his trigger.

**The voice of the Father is the voice of edification, peace, comfort, strength, and love.**

If the devil can appear as an angel of light, then it stands to reason that his utterances can imitate edification, peace, comfort, strength, and love.

Otherwise, we would not be told to TEST the spirits.
