Where To Find God's Word

As a believer, who recently sold out to Jesus I am saddened to discover that many churches and tv ministries no longer finds the Bible relevant. Where does one go nowaday to hear the word of GOD preached?

I tried to follow the dialogue between Shonda nd AKA, but somehow you guys lost me. so let me ask:
What ya'll talking bout?
---francis on 5/26/10


aka joseph

i needed to quote scripture?

you mean to tell my you have NO UNDERSTANDING that Christ IS The Word?
---Rhonda on 5/26/10


[don't know how this got in another blog, but...]
...ONLY scripture contains truth ...so if one is not quoting scripture [as a whole and in context] or is offended by those who do [not then then WHICH TRUTH do they serve? Jesus refuted A LOT of Scripture that was misused or misquoted. There are too many to list, so I will start with Jesus' temptation in the desert Mat 4:1-11.

Now, that brings me to my last point: isn't saying "Jesus' temptation in the desert" the same thing as quoting "Mat 4:1-11?"
---aka_joseph on 5/8/10
---aka_joseph on 5/9/10


Rhonda,

I did not say that quoting Scripture is not good, I keep saying that:

1) The purpose of use is to glorify God and not doctrines of men. (Mat 15:9)
2) motive and purpose are key (Matthew 7:22)
3) verses should be written in full and kept in context (not directly in the Bible, but anarchy would exist if we did not have 'logical' thoughts based on logos.)

BTW, Rhonda, are quoting yourself, your opinions, your idea's ABOUT scripture? There is not one verse quoted in your last post... (to be contd)
---aka_joseph on 5/8/10


Quoting Scripture or other miraculous deeds will not save us. I wonder how much Scripure was being discussed when Jesus was talking to the thief on the cross?
******

if you're not quoting scripture than you have ONLY one other option - you are quoting yourself, your opinions, your idea's ABOUT scripture

ONLY scripture contains truth ...so if one is not quoting scripture or is offended by those who do then then WHICH TRUTH do they serve?

further seeing Christ WAS THE WORD and scripture is THE WORD of God than the Thief had direct access to scripture

Today we have direct access to Christ as the Thief did by his WORD in scripture
---Rhonda on 5/7/10




If i am quoting scripture I am not tooting my own horn. LOL

I have a very fast computer.

the thief on the cross what did he know.

1: He knew who Jesus was
2: He knew that Jesus would some day inherit a kingdom
3: He knew that Jesus was God/ and the son of God
4: He knew that Jesus was able to forgive his sin
5: he knew that Jesus could save him

But i am waiting to AKAJOSEPH to start a post asking:
WHAT DID THE THIEF ON THE CROSS KNOW, and WAS HE POSSIBLY BAPTIZED IN JOHN'S BAPTISM?
---francis on 5/7/10


Francis, I admit that you do quote a lot of scripture. (BTW How do you post so many consecutive responses before a refresh?)

Anyway, if you keep tooting your own horn, you may miss the trumpet blast.
Matthew 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

Matthew 7:20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

Quoting Scripture or other miraculous deeds will not save us. I wonder how much Scripure was being discussed when Jesus was talking to the thief on the cross?

Remember, it is Friday, and almost sundowm.
---aka_joseph on 5/7/10


Well, in the bible when does it call men to worship. OT, NT and new heaven and new earth?

It is always easy to just give an answer. I find it best to just quote the scriptures.

I am a true beliveer in an UNCHANGING GOD.

Here is what the problem is:
Many people cannot deal with what I post, because what they are taught is contrary to what is posted.

By the way am I posting from scripture?
And WHEN does the scripture say is a day set aside by God for worship?
OT, NT, New heaven, and New earth?
---francis on 5/6/10


Where does one go nowaday to hear the word of GOD preached?

Acts 15:21 For Moses of old time hath in every city them that preach him, being read in the synagogues every sabbath day.

Acts 13:42 And when the Jews were gone out of the synagogue, the Gentiles besought that these words might be preached to them the next sabbath.

Acts 13:44 And the next sabbath day came almost the whole city together to hear the word of God.

Ezekiel 46:3 Likewise the people of the land shall worship at the door of this gate before the LORD in the sabbaths ..

Isaiah 66:22-23

ANY BETTER BIBLICAL ANSWERS?
---francis on 5/6/10


HMMM interesting.
Here in this blog we are taling about where to find the word of God. - francis

"In all times OT or NT, God's word can be heard every sabbath:"
"The sabbath cannot change, because creation is over."
"Will we be under the law when we keep every sabbath...
"God in his vast wisdom, never spoke about a sabbath day's journey."
All quotes from francis (not exhaustive).

Elder:
"Frances [sic] your post is a perfect example of the blind leading the blind. ...They are so hung up on 7th day worship (Saturday) they don't even keep the Sabbath themselves."

By implication, one day you will see everything under the sun points to Jesus:

Mark 2:27-28.
---aka_joseph on 5/6/10




The blog question is: Where does one go nowaday to hear the word of GOD preached?

I could say Adventist, Baptist, Catholic, any of the alphabet soup of christianity.

But most people are only interested in what the BIBLE has to say.

So what does the bible says about where to hear the word of God.

The answer of where would be synagogue, or temple no denominational name given.

On the question of WHEN do we hear his word. The bible answrer is: on the sabbath. No denominational name given, no other time sanctified by God.

Exeikel 46 1-5
Acts 13:42-44
Acts 15:21
Isaiah 66:22-23
Revelation 1:10 with isaiah 58 13
---francis on 5/6/10


From OT, NT, new heavens, new earth: the word of God is taught every sabbath.

Acts 13:42
Acts 13:44 And the next sabbath day came almost the whole city together to hear the word of God.

Acts 15:21 For Moses of old time hath in every city them that preach him, being read in the synagogues every sabbath day.

Isaiah 66:22 For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, so shall your seed and your name remain.

Isaiah 66:23 And it shall come to pass, [that] from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD.
---francis on 5/6/10


Which leads me to the Sabbath. Jesus is the Sabbath. He is also 24/7. I take my rest in Him, and I am not limited...
---aka_joseph on 5/6/10

HMMM interesting.
Here in this blog we are taling about where to find the word of God.
In all of the word of God, where do we find a verse that says JESUS IS THE SABBATH?
---francis on 5/6/10


God has already done this and sanctified it:

Ezekiel 46:1 The gate of the inner court that looketh toward the east shall be shut the six working days, but on the sabbath it shall be opened, and in the day of the new moon it shall be opened.

Ezekiel 46:3 Likewise the people of the land shall worship at the door of this gate before the LORD in the sabbaths and in the new moons.

Isaiah 66:22 For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain.

Isaiah 66:23 And it shall come to pass, [that] from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD.

In spite of our disagrements let us all exalst the Bible as the true Word of GOD.
---Samuel on 5/6/10
Amen, brother...Well said!


Pt 2 If you want to block of a time for worship and justify it by Scripture, than I do not expect to see a blog from you for roughly a twenty four hour period from Friday evening to Saturday evening. Or, if you prefer Roman time, from 12 am to 11:59 on Sunday.

But, will this never ending debate on these two issues ever stop. Save the milk for the babies, and let's enjoy steak and veggies!
---aka_joseph on 5/6/10


Well Joseph we can agree with the Bible that Faith without works is dead.

The sad truth of the opening statment is that many churches have little or just a surface reading of the Bible. It is being attacked from outside the church which is understandble. But the fact those who are in churches are attacking and putting down the bible also reminds me of these words of JESUS.

Luk 18:8 ... Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?

In spite of our disagrements let us all exalst the Bible as the true Word of GOD.
---Samuel on 5/6/10

Pt 1 Inevitably, every blog turns into some kind of argument about either salvation/works or the Sabbath.

I do not care how you want to slice it, the Holy Spirit's breathed word says that salvation without works is dead. This means not that we are saved by works, but we are saved by grace, and works/fruit are a spiritual result of this grace. People can go to "church" and sip on their chocolate latts, but if they do not produce works/fruit, they are the walking dead or white washed sepluchers.

Which leads me to the Sabbath. Jesus is the Sabbath. He is also 24/7. I take my rest in Him, and I am not limited...
---aka_joseph on 5/6/10


How will you know what day is the sabbath to worship God in?.. or does Isa 66:23 mean 'continually'?
---micha9344 on 5/5/10

The new moon is the new month, and is associated with the tree of life giving a new fruit every month.

The sabbath cannot change, because creation is over.

Genesis 2:1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.

Genesis 2:2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made, and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.

It is a memorial of God as creator, and that cannot change. God will always be thecreator of this earth.
---francis on 5/6/10


Rom 6:14-15 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.
Galatians 5:18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
Gal 3:2-3 This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?
Isa 60:20 Thy sun shall no more go down, neither shall thy moon withdraw itself: for the LORD shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended.

Was God under the law when he rested after creation?

Genesis 2:2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made, and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.

Will we be under the law when we keep every sabbath in the new heavens and new earth?

Isaiah 66:22 For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain.

Isaiah 66:23 And it shall come to pass, [that] from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD

Sabbath day's journey is man made, and did not come from God. No one is exactly sure how long a sabbath day's journey is.

It is purely man made.

What is not man made is that God commanded all his followers to rest, and gather to worship on the seventh day.

That is commanded by God in this loife, and in the new heavens and new earth.

Ezekiel 46:1 Thus saith the Lord GOD, The gate of the inner court that looketh toward the east shall be shut the six working days, but on the sabbath it shall be opened, and in the day of the new moon it shall be opened.

made made, and not God commanded.

As to jesus being condemed for doing anything on the sabbath. Keep in mind that MEN condemded Jesus for breaking man made rules.
---francis on 4/29/10


Frances and Samuel, maybe you can put your vast knowledge together with your "other sources" and tell us what a Sabbath day journey is.
It is easy for you to say there is no such thing in the Bible when you should say I've not seen that.
There was to be no work on the Sabbeth. Jesus was condemned for plucking an ear of corn off of a stalk. Do you remember that?
---Elder on 4/28/10


Dear Elder

We have always gone by the bible above all other sources. True we listen to others. But the final authority in all matters is the Bible.

In the Bible there is no law about going a certain distance on Sabbath. That was a regulation added by Traditionalists who placed traditions above scripture.

We do believe all scripture is valid for doctrine. We must rightly divide the Word in our understanding. Context and not contridicting other scripture is foundational.
---Samuel on 4/28/10


Frances your post is a perfect example of the blind leading the blind. Next when did the SDA start using Gods Word alone in their teaching. They never have. They are so hung up on 7th day worship (Saturday) they don't even keep the Sabbath themselves. You know if you travel over 1/2 mile or drive a car you have violated the Sabbath law. I guess then you gotta go to Ellen White to get her permission, huh?
The confusion and misunderstanding in some of the answers here really show the delima the church is in.

Elder there is only ONE doctrine unique to SDA, and that is the entirety of the sanctuary doctrine.
While we do share some of our sanctuary doctrine with other denominations, the judgment portion is unique to SDA.

All other doctrines including the sabbath is held in common with other denominations.

The dietary laws are not unique to SDA.
Dead being really dead isnot unique to SDA.
Hell not laasting forever is not unique.

If you have doubts see what the RCC is saying about the SDA church and other protestants.

I will recommend the Seventh day Adventist church as a good Bible teaching church. I know also many Baptist churches do teach a good amount about the Bible and uphold it. I cannot say all of either group will always have a good preacher.

But from teaching good doctrine alone the SDA to me is the best.

" I say that because my father (Greek Orthodox) has been telling me that since I was baptised in an evangelical church. But he is not any type of expert" (peter3539)

Many Eastern Orthodox Christians DO have a Anti-Catholic/Protestant/Oriental attitude. Sorry, but your father doesn't speak for the entire Church, and there is no dogmatic teaching within the Eastern Orthodox Church that say all non-Orthodox Christians are not saved. As far as my parish and myself, we do not question the salvation of heterodox.

I know many Orthodox believe that there no grace outside of the Church, and that the Sacraments performed by Catholics/Protestants are not valid, but this is not the official teaching of the Church.

My husband puts it like this. Going to church is like going to a restaurant. I like Mexican food. If he takes me to an italian restaurant, I will be fed, but I wont enjoy the food as much as I would at the Mexican restaurant.
So it is with church 'style'. Find a church home that preaches/teaches the Word of God. All the other stuff is just seasoning. :)

We do not attend a church. We home church with out 5 children and have a weekly supper on sunday nights where a few families from our neighborhood come and eat. We fellowship, the children play, and everyone is filled and spirits are lifted.
---Leah on 12/27/09


Do not go to any denominational "church." They are detrimental to the maturing christian. Do an online KJV bible seach for "one another," "each other," and "encourag" because living a christian life is a 24/7 lifestyle - not a once a week pep talk dished out by denominational "churches."

Where does one go? Anywhere there are two or more who are gathered in Jesus' name whether at a park, on the street corner, sipping your favorite drink at the local cafe, or breaking bread in your home. This is fellowship.

And remember, you know God by helping others.

The Bible is a good place to go, but try to find a church that is devout to the word, it doesn't matter if they seem weird or not, in fact, that is the higher of the different churches, and pray on it too, b/c God's opinion is the only opinion you need.

"But after hearing these experiences explained I realize that it was not God that gave them the experience.
But these experiences are so strong as to literally blind the mind of those who had the experience." (Mima)

While that is true, what happened when these experiences brings one closer to the unoriginate Father, His Only-Begotten Son, and His All-Holy and good and life-creating Spirit (by studying Holy Scriptures more, praying more, fasting more, etc)?

If this is the case, then the experiences can't be demonic in orgin. Of course, peoples experiences should not be a reason why you join a church. I shouldn't put my experiences in my former posts.

" These may turn a person's heart toward things of God, but those things are feelings with can take the place of a living relationship with a living personal God." (Rod)

Actually, for me, it is the opposite. I got a closer [living] relationship with God when I converted to Eastern Orthodoxy. I got closer at Church and at home, studying Holy Scriptures, the Holy Fathers/Saints, reading the Lives of the Saints, reading the writings and lives of the Early desert Fathers and Mothers, etc.

Mima, nothing you said is error. Study Scriptures and what the Early Church (1st-11th centuries) believed and proclaimed. Of course, what is "false" is based on YOUR interpretation of Scriptures.

Bloomie, the best place to go is right to the Bible. You cannot find a better place anywhere on earth that has the real Truth. Pray before you start. Ask the Spirit to bring light to His Word. Be honest and open hearted when you read. No matter what religion or denomination you are in, never put those believes before the Word of God. Do not put your own meaning on any passage. Compare what you read with the Nature and attributes of God, if the passage contradicts who God is, you have interpreted wrong. Use "Sola Scriptura" where Scripture interpret Scripture.
All man are capable of making mistakes. When you hear a person speak about a topic, always compare it with Scripture no matter who the person is.

Bill-bela, that was good advice you gave and worth mentioning again. When the real Truth from God goes out, it will have the effect that God intends it to have, on whom He intends it to be for. It never returns void. Only the real Truth has that effect. And He knows where He wants it to go and for what purpose.

. It shall not return to Me void,

Concerning Eastern Othodox Church,although what I have to say isn't proof that the church has major error, however, I couldn't help but notice some comments promoting the church. The person said they never "felt more alive spiritually." They also said, "I feel the presence of the Holy Spirit there." Yikes, I can create a "feeling" by having soft music, subdued lights, candles, incense, colored windows, high steeples, high ceilings, and other physical attributes. Plato taught this 2500 years ago. These may turn a person's heart toward things of God, but those things are feelings with can take the place of a living relationship with a living personal God. What happens when this person leaves the church atmosphere?
---Rod4Him on 10/5/09


Concerning the Eastern Orthodox Church,
They do not believe Scripture and Scripture alone is enough. Here are some differences
1-Orthodoxy argues that the Holy Scriptures (as interpreted and defined by church teaching in the first seven ecumenical councils) along with Holy Tradition are of equal value and importance.
2-- Orthodox Christians believe baptism is the initiator of the salvation experience. The Orthodox Church practices baptism by full immersion(at least they believe in full immersion).
The Eucharist is the center of worship in the Orthodox Church. Eastern Orthodox Christians believe that during the Eucharist believers partake mystically of Christ's body and blood and through it receive his life and strength.

You will find The Holy Truth being preached unaltered in the Eastern Orthodox Church. Our worship is fully biblically sound, and more than half of our service [s] have either direct or indirect inferences to Holy Scriptures. We cherish the Holy Bible and venerate it.

I have never felt more alive spiritually than in a Canonical Eastern Orthodox Church. The Divine Liturgy is soul lifting. I feel the presence of the Holy Spirit there. I will suggest you find a Canonical Eastern (or Western rite) Orthodox Church in your area and visit one.

You can't mention any TV minisry that won't be picked apart by some Christians...let alone non-Christians.

Trish's suggestion is a good one. And
"Evangelical" churches are not the only ones that preach the Word of God. Some liturgical churches actually teach the Word more, though their sermons are shorter and their rituals may be hard for the uninitiated to follow.

The only way to find a good church is to visit services.(I usually visit at least twice). Beside what YOU get from the preaching of the Word, what is the attutude of the congregants? How do they respond to each other and to you.
A couple of visits may not tell the whole story, but you will get an idea how much they really live out what they are taught.

One thing to watch for is when you first visit a church and they are "pushing" the most recent book out about what some man thinks you should do. If the preacher uses more than one scripture in his sermon that is a good clue that you are seeing a Bible-believing preacher.
