What Is True Worship
  
And the most condemnation falls upon those who have read James 2:18, and do not follow it, or judge harshly those that do.
---Monk_Brendan on 4/28/16

You apparently haven't read 3:1
Don't many aspire to be teachers, knowing we shall receive a stricter judgment


BTW, in 2:14 the question must be asked...save him from what?


The Sons Of God
  
As Trav has already quoted, it is the sons who will receive an inheritance.

The power to become a son of God is the Holy Spirit, as michael e. stated.

This is what Paul was referring to in Romans 2:6-7

To those who by doing good seek honor and glory and immortality. ..then he went on to say we have all sinned and dallen short of this glory. But in Christ we can obtain this glory. Hebrews 2:9-10 He is bringing many sons to glory


Are There 11 Commandments
  
"...the Ten Commandments, at the very least, are God's Laws and are of sufficient importance to Him that He wrote them himself in the permanency of stone...."
---jerry6593

Permanency?
Where are the tablets now?


"...But these 10 you claim to not be binding while concluding that others are. Strange!"
---jerry6593

It is strange. Along the same lines, scripture never dices the law into categories like moral, cermonial, blah blah blah

The Law is the whole law. So....

when was the last time you put a booth on your rooftop?


Soul Before Birth
  
"...The first soul was Fathers creation. "The LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and adam became a living soul." Each subsequent soul is a result of that creation, brought forth through the process of childbearing. Which is why the woman was called Eve."
---josef on 4/8/16

Scripture doesn't support Traducianism. Only our body comes through procreation. Our spirit comes from God.

Zechariah 12:1
The Lord, who stretches out the heavens and forms the spirit of man within him


Belief In The Trinity
  
"....God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Three Persons, one God. What is so hard?"
---Monk_Brendan on 4/7/16

What is so hard is that nobody can come up with a satisfactory definition of "Person"

I've asked here before. So tell me what 1 Person is, and I'll tell you if I think there are 3 of them

3 beings?
3 personalities?
3 modes?

3....what?


The Sons Of God
  
The "power" is the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.

Romans 8:14 says explicitly that those who are led by the Holy Spirit are the sons of God.

Child is "teknon" in Greek
Son is "huios"

Son denotes maturity

We are all children through faith, we become sons through suffering our will to His

Not every child will grow to maturity


New Covenant On Heart
  
luke: "But the commandments had a beginning."

"And when was that luke? Doesn't that mean that some people were judged by a different standard than others?"
---jerry6593 on 4/1/16


You were already told. 430 yrs after Abraham received the promise.

Now go on pretending you haven't been told

And if someone was judged differently, who are you to judge God?

If you studied scripture you'd know


Belief In The Trinity
  
I have a hard time calling myself a Trinitarian because I haven't run into anyone who will define "Person"

As soon as someone cares to tell me what 1 "Person" is, I'll tell you if I think there are 3 of "Them"


New Covenant On Heart
  
"Because everyone born is condemned already, they are born in sin..."
---Luke on 3/26/16
That's a silly assumption

Philosophical Christianity at its worst


Our Free Will
  
"...your argument fail to take in to acount that the issue is the 2 Natures (the predestine and the reprobate.)

"Because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God, for it does not subject itself ...."

Rom 8:7-8
---john9346 on 3/16/16


Scripture never speaks of any supposed "2 natures" as though there might be an angel and a demon living in us.

Paul said THE MIND is set on either the sinful body or the righteous spirit.


New Covenant On Heart
  
Jerry, you can philosophize and pontificate all you want, but until you say something that can ve supported with the same exact wording in scripture, it's merely opinion.

Hebrews 7:11-12 plainly says that on the basis of the priesthood the people received the Law.

The priesthood came first.

And Galatians 3:17 says the Law came 430 years after the promise to Abraham. Romans 4 says he was circumcised before the Law.

Argue with God about Cain's unjust conviction. I'm not interested in pseudo-Christian philosophy


New Covenant On Heart
  
"James L: "the Law came through the priesthood"

See the blog question. You have defined the Law as the Levitical priesthood sacrificial system."
---jerry6593 on 3/14/16
I did no such thing. I didn't say the Law is the priesthood, I said the Law came through the priesthood.

The priesthood was established before the Law.

All you have to do is read Hebrews 7-10 which absolutely, unequivocally joins the priesthood, the sacrifices, the rituals, the Law, the whole shebang.

Without the breaking of the commandments, what would the sacrifices mean?


New Covenant On Heart
  
"Read Wesley, Martin Luther and Calvin all saying the Ten Commandments are for Christians...."
---Samuelbb7 on 3/8/16

Yet Paul said the Law is the ministry of death, and the writer of Hebrews stated plainly that the Law came through the priesthood, that a change in priesthood necessarily brought a change in the Law.

So are you going to believe scriptures or Luther, Calvin and Wesley?


Eternal Son Of God
  
When Jesus was on earth, Jesus said, "God is a Spirit"- Jo.4:24.

So was Jesus flesh? Or was he "spirit"?

---David8318 on 2/19/16


Both.

I'm curious why does it seem you are not able to fathom a spirit and a body enjoined?

Or can you truly fathom it, and only pretend there is no dichotomy of being?


Explain 1 John 3:9
  
Trey had the only correct answer so far, on 10/19

There is a distinction between the inner man and the body of death.

The inner man has been cleansed, washed, regenerated, and has become the righteousness of God. A new creation, born again. Not able to sin.

But the sinful flesh is raging with selfishness.

And they both are influencing our psyche, our soul.

Jesus is the only man to perfect conquer the flesh, because He is God


Perceived Wrongs Of Protestants
  
Darlene,
Why do you say you go by what the bible says, then insist that tongues is THE evidence?

why do you say the Holy Ghost comes WITH tongues?

Why, when scripture nowhere says the same?


Perceived Wrongs Of Protestants
  
"....just like a Baby must be shown How to start walking a person must be shown the Spiritual attitude one must be in to receive such a special Gift from God..."
---Darlene_1 on 10/24/15


Ummm,
If a baby started walking by the power of the Holy Spirit, nobody would have to show him how to.

When Lazarus was raised, who showed him how to come back to life?


What Is Tithing
  
......take your words at FACE VALUE which means Abraham didn't have any biological sons....
---Nicole_Lacey

Face value? I simply noted what is expressly stated in scripture.

It's not my fault that Westerners define "son" different from scripture.

It's up to you to study, or ask.



Just admit you didn't clarify yourself enough instead of telling me something I already knew....

---Nicole_Lacey

Of course I didn't clarify myself. Are you mad at God too? He saw fit to inspire the same statement, without clarifying.


What Is Tithing
  
Nicole,
In Hebrews 11:17 Isaac is called the "monogenes" of Abraham. It's translated "only son" because Isaac was called his only son in Genesis.

In John 3:16 Jesus is called the "monogenes" of God. Also translated "only son"

Looking at Genesis 15:1-4 when God first promised to Abraham about descendants and reward, Abraham's concern was...."what will you give me, seeing I have no heir?"

Abraham had numerous children, but only one son - heir
