How To Read The Bible
  
Teaching that there is no division between prophecy and mystery undermines the understanding of salvation and Gods will for the church.
While most Bible students make the most important division in the Bible to be between Israel and the Church or the Old and New Testaments, True Bible study teaches the most important distinction in your Bible to be the right division between Gods Mystery purpose, kept secret since the world began, and Gods Prophecy purpose, which had been spoken since the world began (Acts 3:19-21 vs. Rom 16:25).


How Can I Believe In Jesus
  
I am not trying to be cruel or mean, but simply honest. It would be negligence if I encouraged you to believe you were saved if actually you were not.
What you need to know is the gospel of Christ.
The gospel that saves provides the knowledge of salvation. If you do not know you are saved, then you do not know the gospel that saves.
I declare unto you the gospel By which also ye are saved how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures, And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures. 1 Cor 15:1-4


Who's The Elect
  
God makes the Gospel available to all, its our responsibility to accept or reject
Psalm 98:2 The LORD hath made known his salvation: his righteousness hath he openly shewed in the sight of the heathen.
John 1:9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
John 12:32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.
Romans 1:19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them, for God hath shewed it unto them.
Titus 2:11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,


How To Read The Bible
  
Paul separates the Bible into three divisions in Eph 2, time past, but now and ages to come.Where do you fit?
Read Paul's letters then read them again. (Rom 10:17)
You can't know God or his words without reading them.
Compare similar verses. (1 Cor 2:13)
Search for related words.
Compare scripture with scripture.
Determine the application. (Neh 8:8)
This is right division. Not every verse in the Bible was written to you. You must determine who is speaking and where it fits in Gods purpose. Was it for Israel? Is it for the Church today? You must be persuaded in your own mind (Romans 14:5).


Who's The Elect
  
It is mans responsibility to choose.
God gave man a choice in the garden when Adam chose to rebel and suffered death. Later all but eight chose to ignore the warnings of Noah and died in a worldwide flood. The whole earth with one voice chose not God at the tower of Babel, and later God separated only one man and his family from the idolatrous world.
We are ambassadors representing God and his message of reconciliation to a majority that long ago chose not to accept him.


Who's The Elect
  
I found election to be a Bible doctrine, but Calvinism was not.
Biblical election concerns God choosing Christ to die for the sins responsible to mans account. God chose to create man. Man chose to reject God. God chose to die for man. It is now mans responsibility to choose.


Commandments From Jesus
  
Right division explains a lot
1 Corinthians 14:37 If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.


How Can I Believe In Jesus
  
Belief is created when the word of God works in us, not because of an evangelistic method which tricks our mind into thinking we are saved.
Without faith we are blind.
It is our job to make all men see (Eph 3:9).
How do men see the truth? By first hearing the truth. How do they hear it?
Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God (Rom 10:17).
It is the message of Gods word that changes people.


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.

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.
