I repeat, you cannot love whom you don't know. ELENA is not the first poster I've said this to.

OTOH, God knows us completely and loves us anyway.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 1/27/13


Cluny, sister Elena is genuine. You say,

"ELENA, how can you love me when you really know nothing about me?"

In her heart she has accepted you as a brother without knowing you. How can you not appriciate that love? I use to call everyone brother in the beginning, until I was reminded by a another brother that many are not my brothers. God put enmity between the children of God and the children of satan. They are not brothers to each other. So I am very careful who I call a brother.
Elena shows something wonderful in her heart, a love for everyone. Not once has she said anything bad to anyone, plus her love for Christ is displayed everywhere even in her tribulations.
---Mark_V. on 1/27/13


elena, you better be aware of cluny, he corrects everyone not with truth but with whatever he feels on a particular day. he thinks he is well educated and knows everything so I just want him to keep being a know-it-all. some can see right thru.
---shira4368 on 1/27/13


Cluny, I know nothing about your lifestyle other than your chronic ignorance of scripture and life in general that you display on these blogs. YOU were the one who said Satan is not bothered by your prayers, not me.
---Jed on 1/27/13


\\Cluny, perhaps Satan is not bothered by your lifestyle or your prayers.\\

Tell me everything you actually know about my lifestyles and my prayers.

\\ But Satan really hates people who truly serve the Lord,\\

And where did you get the idea that you truly served the Lord, or that your prayers brought honor to God?

**you know we love you as our brother,**

ELENA, how can you love me when you really know nothing about me?

For all you actually know, "Cluny" is a collective pseudonym for several people.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 1/26/13




\\I am unable to lend to creedalism the harmlessness you ascribe. They have been used by Satan to kill and destroy. \\

Please give specific examples of this from history, Phil, giving dates, places, and names.

\\That they affirm truth is false.\\

Then you think that saying there is one God, that Jesus Christ is Lord and that He was born of a Virgin and rose from the dead and ascended into heaven and will return as judge--are you saying that these propositions contained in the Apostles' and Nicene Creeds are false?

Please explain yourself.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

aka, I used the words pick and pry because that is what some are trying to do. please don't worry about my salvation because I have been saved for many years and yes I do have a great church. I hope you are saved too.
---shira4368 on 1/26/13


//ada, legends, you can pick and pry but the point is I wasn't clear// ---shira4368

i agree

and pick and pry are an interesting use of words if the message was not clear.

//women can speak...// that is not what it says in the church of corinth.

but, as i said earlier in the other post, you are not in the church of corinth and it is important to understand the scriptures are made available to us, but they are all not necessarily written directly to us.

as char said...IF you are covered properly...but keep in mind few and many and who jesus recognizes. there are so many who claimed to be covered and so few that actually are.

why would anyone ask if satan hears our prayers. people of God don't really care what satan hears. he can't do anything about it anyway. I pray out loud or to myself and satan gets mad.
---shira4368 on 1/26/13


Phil, from the time I first heard you speak, you believed in the salvation of the elect. Then you believed in the salvation of everyone. Then you believed that satan is deity, but that Jesus is not deity. Then you believed that there is no hell. Now you say people are not responsible for their sin. They can sin all they want because they are not responsible and, in the end God is going to save them anyway, that Jesus sacrifice covers everyone's sins. That God is not everlasting because the word was translated wrong, so everlasting, or forever does not mean forever, the writers of Scripture made mistakes. Then you give a long story as to what you believe and no Scripture to support what you say.
---Mark_V. on 1/25/13

\\Jew were murdered,... all because of refusing to confess a "creed" publicly.\\

Can you give the names of any actual Jews or women who were killed because they would not say the standard Creeds? (Bet you can't!)

Am I to assume that you do NOT believe what the Nicene and Apostles's Creeds say?

That, among other things, you do NOT believe in one God? That you do NOT believe in Jesus Christ? That you do NOT believe in the Holy Spirit? That you do NOT believe in the forgiveness of sins, the world to come, or life everlasting?

Remember that these are summaries of faith for believers, not non-believers. So why should a believer not say them?

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 1/24/13


---Mark_V. on 1/24/13

In order to appreciate God's glory, understanding that He is Creator of both good and evil is important. He is responsible.

Sin is a temporary excrescence in His creation. He has made allowance for it, and will save all men.

A murderer will give an account to God. If alive, God holds man responsible for his judgment. The purpose is justice. He may "pay" for his crime, but is still accountable to God for his actions.

As I said, show me where it says in scripture that God holds man responsible for his sins.

I will show where he does not any longer because of the Perfect Sacrifice, and that God conciliated with all men everywhere, no matter what their sins are.
---Phil on 1/24/13


Phil, you said a lot. And some I agree, but here you say,

"Man is not responsible for sin. Scripture makes no such claim. It is false doctrine."

So if you kill someone, you are not responsible, God is? If you rape someone, you are not responsible, God is? You are like Adam, blaming God for giving him Eve. You are not only responsible, but you are accountable for those sins.
In your theory we might as well do as we want, we are not responsible anyway. Come on Phil, do you not know how you sound?
---Mark_V. on 1/24/13


---Mark_V. on 1/23/13

"But to us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things"

"even so is the man by the woman, but all things are of God."

Everything is out of God. Nothings exists, nothing came into being, apart from the Creator, and nothing remains without His power keeping it so.

Man is not responsible for sin. Scripture makes no such claim. It is false doctrine.

God has taken complete responsibility for His creation. He has made provision for sin, at a great cost and sacrifice.

We are accountable [Ro 14:12], not responsible, for sin. Mt 12:36-37

Everything is out of God.

Believing this, that all things are out of God, secures peace and ends debates.
---Phil on 1/23/13

Phil, you say creeds were made by satan to destroy and kill. You make it look like he (satan) is in control of all things, and he is not. God is. Creeds were put together every time heretics twisted the words of Scripture, the visible church had to make the Truth clear to expose the false doctrines, and judge them as false teachers. Also, since man is not perfect many times they used the creeds to bring their own traditions. You give credit to satan, when it's sinful man who sin. You make is sound as if man was not responsible for his actions, like:
"I'm innocent, the devil made me do it" Or "The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I ate"
blaming God for giving him the woman.
---Mark_V. on 1/23/13


---StrongAxe on 1/21/13

Jew were murdered, believers slaughtered, women burned to death and drowned, all because of refusing to confess a "creed" publicly. Those who formed the creeds will be accountable for concealing truth for gain.

Books and blogs are off the mark. A straw man, as it were.

God is assembling a body for His Son. In these last days, the "delusion" will only get stronger, especially among the sects.

Those seeking affirmation of men for support will have their reward. Those who have relied on the living God, the Saviour of all men, will have their glory as well.

Unity of the spirit is a reality. Keeping it requires love and steadfastness to truth revealed, not concealed.
---Phil on 1/22/13


Phil:

Every single one of the things you ascribe to false creeds can also be said about Christian books, and Christian blogs. Would you therefore advocate closing of Christian bookstores and web sites and blogs because some of them sometimes get some things wrong too?
---StrongAxe on 1/21/13


---StrongAxe on 1/20/13

I am unable to lend to creedalism the harmlessness you ascribe. They have been used by Satan to kill and destroy.

Creeds hold men in darkness and ignorance of the truth by enshrining men's words above the word of God. Often creeds are used to dismiss truth and obfuscate what God is seeking to reveal.

That they affirm truth is false. That they affirm the teachings of men above the word of God, by using His words as support, is apparent in such words as "substance, trinity, true God of true God", and other unscriptural phrases.

All sectarianism is rooted in creeds. They are divisive and have been the source of all that is evil in the body of Christ.

Phil,
I never claimed that the creeds are inspired. What I did say is that they AFFIRMED.


\\Creeds came forth from contention and strife. This alone disqualifies them as sources of truth.\\
---Phil

As do your words, Phil.
---James_L on 1/21/13


Phil:

The Creeds are attempts to distil a complicated set of beliefs into a concise, simple form easy to remember. Yes, this is human interpretation. But the same can be said of virtually everything that one reads in any Christian book, or any Christian blog. Our discussions here attempt to clarify things by posting small summaries (necessarily small ones, due to the 125-word limit). Such summaries are also human opinions, but if one discounts the Creeds because they are human opinion editing God's words, one might as well shut down the blogs too, and go home, for exactly the same reason.

Even though Genesis writes about Babel, it was written long afterwards, in Hebrew, which like all other languages, post-Babel.
---StrongAxe on 1/20/13


James_L on 1/19/13

The creeds are not inspired by God. God's word is in no need of men defining what He has already recorded.

Creeds came forth from contention and strife. This alone disqualifies them as sources of truth.

To allude to them as inspired indicates a lack of scriptural knowledge of what God has spoken.

Phil don't u understand? God does have many names and since God and Jesus are 1, guess they both have many names.
---Shira4368 on 1/17/13

"And I have given them the glory which Thou has given Me, that they may be one, according as We are One." Jn 17:22

Logic would dictate that if your position is true, then all who are one with God are God and entitled to His names, us included.

In this case, the Lord prays to His Father that the disciple would be one, as the Lord and His God.

The oneness Jesus has with the Father is not "substance", it is purpose.

I understand full well what the Holy Spirit is saying. There is only One God, the Father, out of Whom are all things.

---Phil on 1/18/13


Angels do have ears so they can indeed hear our prayers.

There are two types of prayers: one, we may cry out to the Lord and, two, we speak in tongues in our closets which comes from the heart. Let them who understand know.

Phil:
You said: The Supreme Deity has no name.
and: The deity the OT people came into contact with was Christ Jesus, the Logos. He is the deity who is named with names, not the Father.

Where do you get this stuff? The Old Testament God said You shall have no other gods before me. I.e. any Jew who proclaimed a different God than that of the Old Testament broke the first commandment.

But you just said that Jesus was proclaiming a different God than the one the Old Testament taught, and since Jesus was the God of the Old Testament, he was breaking HIS OWN LAW by preaching a different God.

Does anyone else see just how totally confused and inconsistent this would be if it were actually true?

---StrongAxe on 1/16/13

The scriptures are clear. There is only One God, the Father, out of whom all is.

From beginning to end, One One One.

He has created an image He uses to communicate, mediate with men, the Logos, the Word, His only-begotten Son.

God of Jesus Christ cannot be seen or heard. We have no faculties built for that. We need Jesus.

The deity the OT people came into contact with was Christ Jesus, the Logos. He is the deity who is named with names, not the Father.

It is the glory of the Lord to do only His Father's will, and point the way to His God.

There is only One God, and this is the Truth. It is Satan's job to confuse the issue. He has done well.
---Phil on 1/17/13


Phil:

You said: The Supreme Deity has no name.

While Cecil B. De Mille's "The Ten Commandments" speaks of the Hebrews' "God with no name", the Old Testament on which it's based has a decidedly different perspective. God is constantly calling himself "Jehovah" (although the King James
normally renders this as LORD or GOD - in all capital letters).

That name is used in every single Old Testament book, with the single exception of Esther.

The Supreme Deity has no name.

Jesus called Him Father. We do, too.

The Logos, or Expression, of God, Jesus Christ, has many names and titles, according to His assumptions. Christ, El-Shaddai, Jehovah, etc. Due to His relationship as Mediator between God and man, He has been given names according to the circumstances.

He now has The Name above all names in heaven and earth.

God the Father cannot, and has not, appeared to anyone, ever.

It is impossible for God to be the thing He creates, to be visible and needing a name to identify Himself.

There is no point to having a name, when everything is out of yourself to begin with.

His Son, the visible Image of the invisible God, has names and titles.

Phil, God has many names. I do believe there are over 300 names for God. one name is lilly of the valley. prince of peace, bright and morning star. the list goes on and on.

Phil, there was alot of talk there and nothing to proof from Scripture that what you are saying is true about God. Anyone can say, he is god and that one is god or he is not God. Were the writer of Scripture who were inspired were in co-hoods with God to make it difficult for us to understand His name? If so what writer? Do you think God fooled us all by disquising His name? How can you claim satan is God and not Jesus? What passages did you find in favor of satan that does not go in favor of Christ? Can you explain your answers with Scripture?

---aaron on 1/6/13

All these scriptures provide examples of the sense of the word theos. God, the English translation for theos, is not a name.

It is a title. It implies deity, or the Deity.

There is One Supreme theos, the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Being begotten of Holy Spirit, Christ shares in that deity. He is not "the" one true deity. He is deity, nonetheless.

1C 8:5 For even if so be that there are those being termed gods, whether in heaven or on earth, even as there are many gods and many lords.

Scripture is clear. Creeds and tradition prevent clear thinking.

God the Father has never appeared or spoken to men. He has always used His Word, the Logos, to represent Him and speak for Him. God cannot be seen or heard, He is Spirit.

His Image, His Logos, the Christ, is Yahweh Elohim. All contact with men in the OT was Christ pre-incarnate.

The Lord always points the way to the Father, never Himself. He has ever spoken for His Father, not Himself. His will is to do the will of God only, and not His own. He worships His Father.

There is only one God.

Jesus Christ is God to us. He is the Image of the invisible God, the Firstborn of all creation.

Satan is the Prince of the Air. (Eph 2:22) 1 Cor 8:5-7 "Even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as indeed there are many gods and many lords), yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live. James 2:19, You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that and shudder. Phil 2:5-7, Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped. John 10:34-36, Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your Law, I have said you are gods? If he called them gods, to whom the word of God came and the Scripture cannot be broken what about the one whom the Father set apart?

"Yahweh, He is God in heaven above and on the earth below, there is no other." Deuteronomy 4:39

Phil, your problem as I can see is that you do not know who is the True God of Scripture. I say this to others and they get angry, but they speak just like you in many ways. You must have studied more on satan then you did on God. Start from the beginning, "In the beginning God.." (Gen. 1:1) Get your bearings correct. There is only One Omnipotent God. You just argued on another blog that Jesus is not God, yet here you claim satan is God. You rather give the title of God to satan then to Jesus who is Lord, and Creator of all things. Your beliefs are very twisted and probably the reason you have so many passages wrong. Start at the beginning with God, and you will have a great starting point and never go wrong.

How can anyone think satan is deity? He was a rebellious angel that got thrown out if heaven.
---Shira4368 on 12/31/12

How? By belieiving God's word and not the myths of men, which the "rebellious angel" story is. It is not found in the Writings, and was fabricated by theologians.

2C 4:4 clearly states Satan is deity.
en hois ho theos [G2316] tou aionos
in whom the god of-the eon

G2316 a deity, especially (with G3588) the supreme Divinity,

Theos is not a name, it is a title. God has no name.

I am in good company, I agree with Holy Spirit. Scripture confirms Satan is deity.

Geraldine, satan is not deity, please do not believe that garbbish. Only God is Deity. Gordon is correct. Satan cannot even read your thoughts. He cannot be in more places then one.

Satan does not have the attributes of God. In fact God uses him when He wants to.
If satan had read Jesus mind, he would have known that Jesus came to die for our sins. Instead of enticing those who killed Jesus, he would have made sure Jesus didn't die.

I'm sure that Satan does not hear our silent prayers. Whether or not he can hear our prayers spoken out loud I don't know but I don't give him the opportunity to do so nor do I give anyone else the opportunity to hear my prayers either. My prayers are for God to hear and Him alone.

In the past I've heard people criticise the sincere prayers of others spoken out loud in church and decided to never let them hear mine.

The only time I pray out loud is if someone asks me to pray for/with them.

To criticise the prayers of another is not only intimidating but can also be destructive.

Strongaxe, you are right, the serpent is never mentioned in Genesis as satan.
But we know he is satan from the Word of God. The serpent is the manifestation of satan,
"but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer. So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of Old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world, he was cast to earth, and his angels were cast down with him" ( Rev. 12:8,9). Also (Rev. 20:2) refers to the Devil (satan) of Old, reference to Satan's first appearence in the Garden of Eden. And Paul in (2 Cor. 11:3) speaks of the serpent.

\\Another thing to be concerned about is that Satan can be the one who has you praying what you pray . . . no matter how loud or soft .\\

We have libraries to show what real literature is like.

And we have the classic prayer books to teach us what real prayer is like.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Geraldine:

To be precise, Eve was not having a conversation with Satan. She was having a conversation with a serpent, which is an ordinary creature. In fact, Genesis does not anywhere identify the serpent with Satan. (I used to think it did, and I looked for it, and couldn't find it.)

Another thing to be concerned about is that Satan can be the one who has you praying what you pray . . . no matter how loud or soft . . .

So, in this case, he does not only "hear" what you are praying!

"Test all things, hold fast what is good." (1 Thessalonians 5:21)

God makes us able to test reliably (Philippians 1:9, Hebrews 5:12-14, 12:4-11). Make sure you can tell the difference between what God has you thinking and praying, versus what Satan has you thinking and praying and wanting.

\\Many times when I pray to God for help, new roadblocks appear, and I thought it was Satan's doing, not coincidence or God.
---Geraldine on 1/18/12\\

Geraldine, are you vain you think you mean that much to Satan? Do you? Do you? Do you?

More likely these are coincidences--or maybe God saying, "No," or "Not yet."

\\Cluny, since Eve conversed with Satan about eating from the forbidden tree, I assumed Satan can speak and hear speech. But I couldn't find reference to Satan reading our minds.

Geraldine, prayer is talking with God--be it mentally or out loud.

Where did you get the idea that Satan could eavesdrop on our prayers, however they are sent? It's nothing but superstition to believe that he can do so.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Geraldine, please remember that Satan is a created spiritual being of God. He does not exist outside of God's will and purpose. He is not like God. Satan existence has a Holy purpose from God and that's to fulfill the Scripture proclaimed by Solomon in Proverbs 16:4,

"The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil."

Satan is the embodiment of what evil is. And if God did not create evil, how else can He demonstrate His power over evil? How else do we even know what is evil if God doesn't create evil? Some will even say, then God is evil. But that is an impossibility, that's because God is Holy. Nothing can corrupt or change His perfect being of Holiness.

no...you think he needs to be that busy to trip us up?

Satan has enough birds, dirt, and thorns. so that when we get the word, he can separate us from the Word.

we need to be concerned with our prayers to God and how He 'hears' them.

where do you think He gets those prayers of the saints to burn for incense in Revelation?

do you think maybe that MOST prayer is received but MOST are not exactly in line with His will and finally used for some good reason?

I would say he can, but it depends on if God sees fit. Also, make sure we trust that God is able to take care of our prayers, whether Satan hears them or not. Do not believe that Satan can do whatsoever he pleases with our prayer info, but trust God to control what Satan is allowed to know and do. And make sure you know the prayer of Jesus > John chapter seventeen > and be blessed with all He has claimed for us in this prayer. Oh, yes, be careful what you pray for, so that you then do not accept how Satan would counterfeit an answer > "Test all things, hold fast what is good." (1 Thessalonians 5:21) God will do better than you hope in prayer.

I would have to say yes. The spiritual battle between God and Satan is a very tough battle. Satan will lose of course but Satan is very smart and cunning. Reference Job, Satan obviously new Job was righteous and God-fearing man through his prayers and worship. Jesus told Peter that Satan wanted to test him because Satan knew that Peter would be or wanted to be the leader. Satan is that voice in your head trying to compromise you or get you to stumble so when you put up your defenses with prayer Satan trys to attack harder and harder. This is my 1 minute thought/opinion so if you have other evidence glad to hear it.

Where did you get the idea he could hear ANY of our prayers to God, silent or spoken?
