Yet notice that when Jesus was asked to pay his taxes, he could have self-righteously and legitmately said "I would rather die than pay a penny to support a cruel, covetous, murdering, tyrannical, adulterous and idolatrous Caesar who breaks every one of the ten commandments every day". Yet he did not do so. He said "Render unto Caesar that which is Caesars, and unto God that which is God's".

So I guess this means that you interpret Romans 13:1-7 as saying "Be subject unto the higher powers - unless you happen to disagree with them"?
---StrongAxe on 6/22/09

Even MY Lord was under subjection to the higher powers....fulfilling in his physical body role.
His mind an spirit never were. They will kneel and know.
Some have laws written in their heart and mind. These speak when the time is upon them. Heb 8:10
They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.
So kill me.
John 16:1-3

Acts 23:5 Then said Paul, I wist not, brethren, that he was the high priest: for it is written, Thou shalt not speak evil of the ruler of thy people
Titus 3:2 To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, [but] gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men
2 Peter 2:10 But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous [are they], selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.
Jude 1:8 Likewise also these [filthy] dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.
Romans 12:14 Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.
Matthew 5:44a But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you,

Also, from your veiled reference to our new President, God must also have put him there for some good reason of his, and whether or not you see it or agree with it, there it is.
---StrongAxe on 6/11/09

Easy to see.

GOD did not PUT/PLACE him there. You/yours did. GOD allowed it.

Pharoah jr, symbolizes clearly the fact that we have more voters of a foolish ungodly character in America who "Chose" by vote.
Trav....the other day.

Here's you one showing that the same thing has happened previously...with disaster following.

4They have set up kings, but not by me: they have made princes, and I knew it not: of their silver and their gold have they made them idols, that they may be cut off.

---StrongAxe on 6/11/09

Easy to see.

GOD did not PUT/PLACE him there. You and yours did. GOD allowed it.

Pharoah jr, symbolizes clearly the fact that we have more voters of a foolish ungodly character in America who "Chose" by vote.

It does not relieve responsibility of the apathetic/compacent/blind who done nothing, who did not vote, or work/pray against this reject of our blessings from GOD.
For the leaders of this people cause them to err, they that are led of them are destroyed.

How convenient to read a passage that says one thing, then interpret that "to those who understand" it means the exact opposite.

Of course there have been evil rulers. But God put them there for a reason. In some cases, to punish people. In this case, as you point out, Pharoah's reason was to show God's power through Moses - which was to happen at a time and place of God's choosing. It would have been inappropriate for anyone else to defy him (or for Moses to have defied him previous to that point).

Also, from your veiled reference to our new President, God must also have put him there for some good reason of his, and whether or not you see it or agree with it, there it is.

Perhaps you should review Romans 13:1-7 commands us to be subject to the Higher Powers.
God put Pharoah there in the first place.
---StrongAxe on 6/10/09

To those that understand this means "GODLY" authority's.
Many, Many breakers of ungodly law. Daniel n the Lions den ring a bell. Shadrach, Meshach, Abedigo.

GOD raised pharaoh for one purpose...below.
Exodus 9:16
in very deed for this cause have I raised thee up, to shew in thee my power, that my name may be declared throughout all earth.

Exodus 5:2
Pharaoh said, Who is LORD, that I should obey his voice to let Israel go? I know not the LORD, neither will I let Israel go.

Reminds one of new illegit pharaoh...

For the most part, everyone on earth has been brainwashed to believe that "Higher Powers" includes "earthly rulers" (the moneychangers want us to believe that), and according to FREEWILL, everyone has the option to continue to believe that.

I made the PERSONAL choice not to let "earthly rulers" of any kind to NOT LET earthly rulers to have ANYTHING to do with my soul. JESUS ONLY is (to me) my ONLY hero.

Do as you wish (how God feels about that is another issue).
---more_excellent_way on 6/11/09


There is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING in the scriptures saying that the Bereans had any interest in being "Paul followers". Quite to the contrary - rather than believing him, they first checked to make sure that what he was saying was in accord with the scriptures that they already had. As such, their belief was in the scriptures first, and Paul only second, and only inasmuch as his teachings agreed with the scriptures.

As I mentioned to trav in another blog: perhaps you should review Romans 13:1-7 that commands us to be subject to the Higher Powers (such as earthly rulers).
---StrongAxe on 6/11/09

Treated as AUTHORITIES?....JESUS said...

"All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me". be FOLLOWED?...ONLY Jesus should be followed.

There is only one hero in Christianity. The Bereans wanted the fame of being a "Paul follower". Christians today also want the fame of being a follower of "this pastor" or "that pastor" (one part of the "STRONG delusion").

The Bereans did what they did...Paul simply "acknowledged" what they did, he did not actually PRAISE them. The modern day moneychangers want us to believe that he approved of and praised them so that we will be in the habit of following and praising the modern moneychanger also.
---more_excellent_way on 6/10/09


So I am confused: do you think that Paul's words in the Bible should be treated as authorities to be followed, or not? If not, why not just rip out a bunch of the new testament and save ourselves a lot of printing costs. But if so, why are you imply that Paul's praise of the Bereans was misplaced?
---StrongAxe on 6/10/09

God is no respecter of persons (this is expressed clearly in the KJV). Neither should we be a "respecter" that gives a person special status, regard/honor (especially when it comes to our devotion).

The brethren do not want to accept this (since we all want to feel MORE DESERVING and have MORE status than unbelievers)...just like the prodigal son's brother didn't want to, but The Lord tells us that we should show no partiality while keeping the faith (the brethren in Christ should not be given any special treatment over the unbelieving population)...

(these verses are from the RSV).
1 Timothy 5:21
"doing nothing from partiality".

James 2:1
"no partiality as you hold the faith".
---more_excellent_way on 6/9/09


While Paul should not be worshipped, he should be respected. Even Jesus, whenever confronted by the Pharisees and Satan himself, generally confounded their arguments by quoting scripture verbatim, saying "it is written".
---StrongAxe on 6/8/09

God does not want us (who we are, our identity) to be defined by "the book".

The Bereans and ancient peoples (Jews, Greeks, Romans, Ethiopians, etc.) chose to "be defined by the book". These primitive cultures tended to develop many bad habits (whether they worshipped God or not), but as modern civilized people, we should understand that the only way each of us can have a MUTUAL and PERSONAL relationship with God is for us to realize that the bible should not be used to prevent our own thinking.

Regardless of whether someone else knows how to repeat words that God spoke/wrote, we should be caring ONLY about OUR relationship/devotion with GOD.

Paul had a good devotion, but he should NOT be revered.

One part of the nature of Truth is that it is consistent, and not self-contradictory. If we hear something new that may or may not be true, one way we can find out easily enough is to see if it is consistent with what we already know to be true. If the new "truth" contradicts what we already know, then it can't be true.

This is why we always use the term "scriptural" - anything new MUST pass the test of being consistent with what the scriptures already reveal, otherwise, it CANNOT be right.

It's not simply acknowledging Christ as savior that will yield ETERNAL LIFE (the ultimate goal), there are other requirements that need to be met ("they REFUSED to love the truth AND SO BE SAVED", 2 Thessalonians 2:10).

When someone says something, we shouldn't be concerned with the "sound" so we can COMPARE what it's "LIKE"/resembles. It's not only critical/judgemental and disrespectful, but we're also disregarding the truth of what they did say. Even if we disagree with their understanding, we have to be "eager" to HEAR/understand exactly what is being said (make their words meaningful to us) so we can address (and maybe learn) "TRUTH" (HEARING the exact truth of what they are saying).
---more_excellent_way on 6/5/09


While that may be true, it was unfortunate for the Bereans that Jesus himself never went to Berea. As such, the only way that they could hear about him was from a third party - in this case, Paul.

Now, if a total stranger came into your town telling marvellous tales about some new Messiah, would you accept such stories blindly? Or would you first check to make sure that these stories were in accordance to scriptures that you already knew and trusted?

Paul praised them for their diligence in this. Or perhaps you think that Paul was not a good spokesman for Christ?
---StrongAxe on 6/5/09

Amand. dont you mean somle scriptures apparently contradict rather the contradict?
---andy3996 on 6/5/09

I agree. I think it is wrong. How does this man know what Jesus would say? Even if he goes based on the Bible, the Bible is missing many years from Jesus' life.

Some verses also contradict one another, so how does this man know what Jesus would say?

More Excellent Way, it sounds like you are against people examining scripture to see if what is being said is true, Acts 17:11.

---Rob on 6/4/09

The women at the well thought she knew who she was worshiping ,but jesus let her know she didnt know God.Remember jesus said God is a spirit and those who worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.God is the God of the living not the dead.Man without being set free from the bondage of sin is spiritually dead an when people are spiritually dead they dont know God and to know God is life eternal.this life is brought about by the quickening power of the spirit of God which is christ Jesus the hope and glory.
---laverne on 6/4/09

The woman at the well didn't have to search any scriptures, she was sincere in her worship and was already waiting for the Messiah. The Bereans were not sincere in worship, they were "Academics" (more concerned with studying/analyzing scripture than knowing the Messiah). The traditional teaching today is the same (that we should be "academics" that analyze scripture).

The Bereans did not die on the cross.
Paul did not die on the cross.
The bible did not die on the cross.

The MESSIAH ONLY died on the cross.

....(and God is a jealous God).

Jesus is God in ENTIRETY and should be our ONLY spiritual source (Colossians 2:9).
---more_excellent_way on 6/4/09


It sounds like you are disapproving of the Bereans for not thinking God's word was good enough, although Paul had nothing but praise for them. There was a good reason why the Bereans wanted Paul's words - the scriptures that they searched daily were the Old Testament, since the new hadn't been written yet, so when Paul came to them with the Gospel of Christ, they made sure that his teachings were in line with the scriptures that they already had. When any new preacher comes to us with some new teachings, we would be prudent to do likewise.

Philippians 1:15 Some indeed preach Christ even of envy and strife, and some also of good will:
1:16 The one preach Christ of contention, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my bonds:
1:18 What then? notwithstanding, every way, whether in pretence, or in truth, Christ is preached, and I therein do rejoice, yea, and will rejoice.
4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things [are] honest, whatsoever things [are] just, whatsoever things [are] pure, whatsoever things [are] lovely, whatsoever things [are] of good report, if [there be] any virtue, and if [there be] any praise, think on these things.
The key is discernment.

Today's generation of those who claim Christ as savior are going to have to be much more wise in avoiding scams.

Many antichrists will appear as "teachers"/prophets and use good sounding words to mislead this generation.

Whatever "excuse" for using the name "Jesus", it is an EXCUSE, not a legitimate REASON (there is no legitimate reason).

Many people want to imitate the Bereans.

The Bereans already had God's word from their scriptures, but they weren't satisfied with that, so they felt a need to verify what PAUL said (they wanted PAUL'S WORD because they felt that GOD'S WORD wasn't good enough for them) also today, this generation will look for other "spiritual" sources.

I cannot comment on it personally, since I haven't actually heard the show myself.

However, from what I've read about it, it's seems to be a show in which an actor portrays Jesus and dispenses advice about listener's problems as he expects that Jesus would do - based on Jesus's teachings and parables. In this light, such a portrayal would be little different than an actor portraying Jesus in a passion play, for example.
---StrongAxe on 6/3/09

I wouldn't do it, but I'd might listen for a little bit to see what things they say, to see if they were capable of saying really beneficial things while doing that. Even if you are pushing a wrong opinion, the wrong spirit of this can effect you emotionally in a bad way. So, I understand if they are doing what is wrong, they can't be putting out really worthwhile stuff, at the same time.
---Bill_bila5659 on 6/3/09

Is that show a Christian show? Its title suggests it might be. If it is, I think it is quite inappropriate for the host to call himself Jesus

If it is not a Christian show, it's intention would appear to be to ridicule Christ & Christians, and so is blasphemous
---alan8566_of_uk on 6/3/09

Things like this are just a sign of the end-times. Jesus said in the last days that many would come claiming to be Christ, but are false christs. He also said that many would mock Him and true believers. Know that the radio show, it's host, and the callers are Blaspheming God, and are NOT true followers of Christ, but of the Devil.
