Follow The Word Or Tradition

The Apostles backed all their teachings on the word of the Prophets and revelation knowledge by the Holy Spirit. Is the foundation of what you believe based on the Apostles and Prophets or your opinion?

There are they who say 'Faith only' and there are those who say 'Only Scripture'. I say search out the truth about anything and you will end up with only one book that tells the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. If faith is not rooted in the Word, then it will not show the works that are the fruit of the true Vine.

Where is the Resurrection in the Old Testament?
---Jack on 4/4/08

I try to do the same as the Apostles. I want my opinion to be truth. Actually, I've never met anyone who didn't want to be teaching the truth. I see that the Apostles even had some differences of opinion and it caused difficulty but the work of the Lord still went on.

Stick to the Susan Powder spiritual diet;

"If it didn't grow that way, dont eat it".

Most of the spiritual diets on the market today are unhealthy..full of artificial sweeteners, and who knows what. Just as babies don't have taste buds formed yet, many new Christians will eat anything. I cannot tell you how many times the Lord had to stick His finger down my throat and make me throw up. Fast food causes high cholesterol too. It affects the heart and the brain.

If you read your bible you will find that Jesus did and said and taught many more things than were written in it. Thats what the Church is for, the rest of the stuff he taught and put into motion.
---Hoss on 6/29/06

My beliefs are based on the foundation upon which the church is built, revelation knowledge directly from the Father. With the writings of the apostles and prophets to ground me and Christ Jesus as the corner stone.

"Follow The Word Or Tradition"?

If by word you mean the written word, Paul said the written word IS Tradition.

Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle. 2 Thes 2:15
---augusta on 6/28/06

Exzuc,opinions are another word for traditions.There are no opinions in Gods word only truth, spiritual truth. Jesus told pilate on the day of his crucifiction his kingdom was not of this world, that he came as a witness of the truth.opinions are why we have the denominations we have today in the church.there are many false teachings today.jeus is truth its not hard to see his truth, love God with all your heart,strength,and mind, and love each other as I have loved you. we forget what spiritual love is.
---tom2 on 6/28/06

Its hard in this world today so many lies and insinuations and issues that affect every nation .opinions are every where about anything you can think of.But just as it was on the day they crucified our lord, men don,t want to know or hear the truth, especially when it affects their lives in a way that their flesh doesn,t like.Now that just my opinion.
---tom2 on 6/28/06

exzuc, I have no opinions when it comes to Gods word.NONE I have for nearly 30 years been a follower of jesus and only his opinions matter to me, cause his are spiritual truth.In this world there is truth, and then then the rest, some out and out lies some halfs truths as satan uses.But the whole truth came from one man and his name was jesus.

1John 2:26 These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you.
1John 2:27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
1John 2:28 And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming.

' Very " true exzucuh. Thanks!
---Leon on 6/11/06

The Living Word, Jesus Christ. Leads us into all truth. It is not an intellectual knowledge of the word, although intelect is involved. Praise Jesus, He brings to light the things hidden in darkness in my own mind/my opinions. We take captive every vain imagination and make it obedient to Christ.
---christina on 6/11/06

You forgot only one thingthat they taught was the teachings and subsequent death and ressurection of christ and that he died for the sins of the world.if all the denominations taught as the apostles did man the signs and wonders would amaze the secular world. JUST AS THEY DID THEN.but the church has strayed from it,s first love.
---tom2 on 6/10/06

neither. I believe the commands and words of Jesus Christ.

SAme for me, Helen.

Of course, the Church existed before the Bible, so what went into the Bible was determined on the basis of if it fit what the Church believed.

John 13:20 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever I send receiveth me; and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.
---Exzucuh on 6/10/06

What I believe is founded on the whole of the counsel of God's Word.

Peter being influenced by educated Jews fell back into the law of circumcision,which is the word of God,But it did not line up with the teaching of Jesus and Paul confronted Peter and these others to remind them of the new covenant and the fact circumcision made faith void. The word they were teaching even though it was the word of God would have destroyed everything jesus did and return to Judaism.

The point I am trying to make is without revelation of scripture you can make any doctrine you want,use the word for you own purpose, what we teach must line up with what is taught in the teachings we already have by Jesus and the Apostles and Prophets and these three must bear witness as one. because they are one.

Acts 2:17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: Peter used the prophecy of Joel 2:28 to explain what was happening at pentecost and saying it would not stopbut continue in believers

1 Corinthians 14:21 In the law it is written, With men of other tongues and other lips will I speak unto this people; and yet for all that will they not hear me, saith the Lord.
Paul used Isaiah 28:11 to teach about the gift of tongues but Isaiah was prophesing about the captivity of Isreal,by revelation Paul saw this in this prophecy and justified speaking in tongues as of God.

All Christians should not just believe the prophets & apostles; but, the God of those holy men thru whom He gave (by unction of the Holy Spirit) His word (the Bible).

What I believe is not based on the apostles, prophets, nor my opinions. What I believe is based on the God's inspired word, the Bible only . What about you?
---Leon on 6/10/06

Traditions; either man's or those of any church can only lead to destruction(Hell). What can not be found in the WORD disregard.
---mima on 6/10/06
