What Is Apophtatic Theology
Do we determine Gods words by "Original" manuscripts. Languages or scholars?
Is final authority, degrees, professors or seminaries?
No scholar has more authority than you. You have the manifold wisdom of God! Eph 3:10
Scripture is able to make you wise - 2 Tim 3:15
Study the Word "rightly divided"

What Is Apophtatic Theology
Apparently, there are some here that have "copies" of the originals, that are "fairly" accurate. Could you share these "copies"?
The secret that most know but no one talks about is that there is not a single original writing from any apostle, prophet, or tablet of stone exists today. How many times have the "copies been copied?

What Is Apophtatic Theology
Few things have caused more damage in churches than when pastors say things like:
In the originals, the word here really means_____
The Greek word for this is______
A better rending of the originals would be_____
Churchgoers have heard these sayings for so long they have now become calloused to it! This is a real problem.

There are no originals, to compare your Bible to.
When the pastor says, in the originals, What he said was misleading.

Doctrine Of Immaculate Conception
A false view is Jesus was sinless because of the virgin birth, Jesus was always sinless. It doesn't glorify Mary. Luke 1:28-30, 2nd-3rd century Christianity elevated Mary
It does teach Gods involvement in Jesus birth and salvation Mat 1:23
A sign of the divinity of Christ Mat 1:23, also John 1:13 A sign of the sinlessness of Christ Heb 4:15, 1 Pet 2:22, 1 John 3:5, 2 Cor 5:21 A picture of Gods grace John 1:13
The second Adam doctrine 1 Cor 15:47, Rom 5:12

\\!. How did God lead you?
2. What did you study?\\

1.When I was stumbling around in denominations, I was lead through a friend to a Bible study based on dispensations, which I disagreed with, even though I had no idea what it was about.
2.I started to study Rom-Phil. to see where I stood in Christ

Bound By Ten Commandments
Many teach the law not knowing the lesson it was supposed to teach.
1 Tim 1:7 Desiring to be teachers of the law, understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.
The lesson of the law is found in Rom 3:19. The purpose of the law was never to make us holy. It was to bring us to Christ (Gal 3:24).
Gal 3:25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.
Christ did for us what the law could not (Rom 8:3-4). Our identity as Christians depends on our position in Christ by faith not by our obedience to the law. Liberty from the law, not bondage by the Law, will help you advance in your knowledge of Gods will.

//1. It was God who led me to Christ's Holy Orthodox Church.
2. My own study, ,guided by the Holy Spirit Himself, led me to this conclusion.

You may not like my answer, but there it is.

Christ is risen!

My young friend asked,
//1. Who does the "right dividing"?//
Our apostle Paul
//1. Which recension of the KJV do you base your faith in God upon?//
What difference does it make which "edition' I use? You don't actually think burned or bernt effects your salvation do you?
// Could these questions scare you?//
My curious young friend, at my age, there is absolutely nothing you could do or say that could scare me.
Question for you,
1. who enticed you into orthodoxy religion, God or man.
2. How was introduced to you?

Without right division, sincere people face a dilemma.
They remain ignorant about Gods will not knowing which verse to follow, which is tantamount to never receiving Gods will.
They can reject part of Gods revelation claiming in one passage it's not what God meant, not translated correctly.
The advantage of right division is that it allows us to understand Gods will and believe every word in the Bible at the same time.
The advantage of every man has always been to believe the Bible. The advantage of the boC today is believing the Bible, rightly divided.

Favorite Translation Of Bible
Judge a book by reading the inspired words in it and making a determination about who is speaking, to whom they are speaking, and whether the audience is the church, the Body of Christ.
It is not degrees and lifetimes of seeking that is required to discover
spiritual truth, it is faith in God and his word rightly divided.
There are simple truths that God has revealed in the Bible that the wise of the world are still trying to discover in their natural faithless mind.
Let God be true and every man a liar and you will grow in
knowledge and understanding.

The Power Of The Law
But now, we are not under the law which was contrary to us Col 2:10-14. Observing days is weak and beggarly, as is the law Gal 4:9-11, Rom 14:1-7.

Favorite Translation Of Bible
Shouldnt we be teaching belief in God and his words not doubt? What good is it to stand in doubt of the Bible you study when the very words of eternal life and peace with God are only beneficial if they are first believed?
There is a good reason that I believe my King James Bible. My faith in God depends upon it. (Roma 10:17)
Most importantly, it is an offense to my Lord if I continue in unbelief. It is not a matter of probability that Gods words are preserved. Neither is it a matter of mans capability. It is a matter of Gods responsibility.(Rom 4:21)

Why Easter And Christmas
Religious holy week ends with the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ, but the ministry of the church begins with the revelation of the gospel of the grace of God not revealed until after that week.

Religions will repeat the events of Jesus earthly ministry and mourn his death as the biggest mistake humanity ever made, in the same ignorance as the disciples as to why he had to suffer and die.
Meanwhile, the stewards of the mysteries of Christ should continue preaching the glory of the cross of Christ as the best news the world has ever received.

Normal Christian Lifestyle
There are so-called Christians who judge salvation by a persons lifestyle (Titus 3:5). They are wrong to do so.
There are saved people who justify their own sinful behavior with liberty (1 Cor 6:12, Rom 6:15). They are wrong to do so.
There are "Christians" everywhere who participate in ministries but deny the gospel of the grace of God (2 Cor 11:13). They are wrong to do so.
Find out for yourself. You might be surprised at what some so-called Christians believe.
Do the work of an evangelist. This would be the right thing to do. (2 Tim 4:5)
Paul gives some commands, few follow (1 Cor 11:1, Phil 3:17)

Is everyone who calls themselves a Christian actually a Christian? If so, what kind? When you believe the Holy Bible, its expected that atheists will attack your biblical beliefs. Sadly, many so-called Christians will do the same.

Favorite Translation Of Bible
Consider that King James Bible has been published for 400 years. If we had no other manuscript evidence we can be confident in the preservation of scriptures for 1/4 of Biblical history using only this one book. It has not changed.
We can go even further into the history of preservation using only other English translations which match the King James Bible.
Changing the reading of the Bible every 15 years is a recent invention by faithless Bible translators.
If you want a Bible still published that does not change, there is only one. If you want a Bible that is perfectly preserved throughout history, understood by the majority of English speaking people, and used by the greatest spiritual minds in history, there is only one.

Ten Commandments Historical
The law of God is holy, just, and good. It is perfect, a reflection of Gods holiness. Yet, it is the last thing you want in front of you at the final judgment.
The purpose of the law is to expose sin. Sin deserves death and that means you lose at the judgment. Being subject to it will only hurt you not help you because you are part of sinful humanity.
Gal 3:10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.

Normal Christian Lifestyle
The essentials of salvation are things necessary to save a soul. The gospel is simple, but some things are required.
There is no salvation without the fullness of the Godhead in Jesus Christ, his death and resurrection provided freely by grace through faith.
Salvation does not come by the name of Allah, Buddha, Joseph Smith, Moses, or Pope Francis. You are not saved by trusting the church, your confession, prayers, or tithing. Faith is required. Faith in nothing is unbelief. Faith in the wrong thing is vanity.
There are essentials to salvation. You cannot be truly Christian without them.

Ten Commandments Historical
Law teaching is holding Christians back a grade. In Gods plan we live in the time of graduation. The law was useful in its function as a schoolmaster, but only as it helps us to graduate into Christ.(Rom 8:3-4).
Our identity as Christians depends on our position in Christ by faith not by our obedience to the law. Liberty from the law is not good for building funds and pastors paychecks, but it will help you advance in your knowledge of Gods will. It is about time we grew up and saw real change in our spiritual growth.

If you are under a law schoolmaster in your church, then show your diploma of the cross and walk the aisle.
