GOD provides nourishment to the individual believer on the level of understanding the believer is at. LITTLE CHILDREN KNOW their sins are forgiven...THE MILK. Many verses may go over ones head, but ARE PLANTED for the time of the next LEVEL, YOUNG MEN WHO have overcome the evil one. When in spiritual warfare the Lord brings back these verses..aka LIVING WORD OF GOD at the right time is teaching us how to put on the WHOLE ARMOUR of God. Next level...FATHERS, eating personally STRONG MEAT who are the most mature of all, able to teach others. YES The Lord personally brings us from babyhood to adulthood through FAITH IN the LIVING WORD of God. 2 Peter 1 and 1st John. And James 1.

We all have the right to interpret the Bible But will we always be right. That is another story. We should listen to others and consider what they say. But we are not to let others tell us what to think. That is what cult leaders do.

We are to follow Jesus.
---Samuelbb7 on 1/1/20


The Lord teaches us how to pray in (Matthew 6: 9-13). In that prayer, the Lord teaches us daily confession of sin before God. But many people reject this teaching, claiming after Jesus died, they dont need to confess their sin before God.

Why do they, or why do you, reject this teaching?

//Isa 28:13 But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, and there a little, that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken. //

Please tell me how this means the Bible interprets itself.

Christ is born! Glorify Him!
---Cluny on 12/26/19


cluny: "That's not what the Bible itself actually says."

I quoted what the Bible says. It seems you have difficulty simply believing the Bible, preferring the word of some guru instead. The Bible also says:

Isa 28:13 But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, and there a little, that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.

and:

Jer 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

and:

Mat 15:9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

Does anyone here besides myself know what the Ethiopian eunuch said to Philip the Deacon?

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 12/21/19

Cluny, that is improper grammer. I'm surprised you don't know this. The above should read, " Does anyone here besides me".....not myself.

Look it up if you don't believe me.

Yes I know what the Eunuch said, or rather asked Philip.

That's not what the Bible itself actually says.

Where does the Bible say that some individual or church has the right to interpret it for others on his/its own authority--and will always be right?

My Bible says that it interprets itself.

Isa 8:20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

//A Majorities beliefs have no relevance, in the revelation of fact,....or of fiction.//

This is very true. But, in Christ's Church, She is in the Majority

//You used the Majority as your source of confirmation, of what you believe.//

I don't think that's was what Cluny was saying.

Authority not Majority.

//And I merely warn you against using this, as a way of deciding what is true or false.---David on 11/28/19

You can't, but refusing to take an Authority given from Jesus is very dangerous.

Numbers 12:2

A majority of Christians believe that the Bible, in some way or other, is the word of God. According to your own logic, that doesn't really matter.

---David on 11/28/19


We will each stand before GOD. To have a single ruler decide what is right for us. That is not correct. We are responsible to GOD for our decisions.

The two basics of being a Christians are easy. You will love the Lord your GOD. You will love your neighbor. If you get some points of doctrine wrong but live for Jesus and these two points. I believe you will be in heaven. But if you live in hate. You will be lost. No matter your doctrine.

David* Ruben
Jesus, die on the cross?

Speaking of the cross, Jesus said in Jhn 6:51 " if any one eats of this bread, he will live forever, and the bread which I shall give for the life of the world IS MY FLESH."

Was it symbolic or his real body on the cross?


David* The very fact, Jesus used bread and wine as a substitute for his body and blood, showed it to be symbolic.

The very fact when the Jews asked " How can this man gives us his flesh to eat " v52 and his response v53-58 was " For my Flesh is food indeed and my blood is drink indeed."v55
Nothing in those verse about being symbolic.

Again, as I said who determines whose interpretation is correct?

David, the Greek word "symbolon" means to bring together to realities: in this case, the bread and wine with the Body and Blood of Christ.

The word you're looking for is "emblem," which means an empty sign.

But that's not what the vast majority of Christians over they ages has believed.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Jesus says in John 6:54-55 " He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life....For my flesh is is food indeed, and my blood is drink indeed." You believe he is speaking symbolic while I don't, whose interpretation is correct and why?---Ruben

Ruben
Did the Lords disciples eat him at the last supper, or did Jesus, die on the cross?
The very fact, Jesus used bread and wine as a substitute for his body and blood, showed it to be symbolic.

Symbolic of what? Symbolic of a sacrifice, symbolic with one exception. The blood of a sacrifice was sprinkled, where we are to drink the blood of Christ. Why internally and not externally? (Matthew 23:26)
---David on 11/26/19


Simply Measure what they say to be the Truth, with what Jesus taught. Dont be surprised, when you discover, most salvation teachings are the direct opposite of what Jesus taught.
---David on 11/25/19

Again who determines what Jesus taught is actually what you say? Example:

Jesus says in John 6:54-55 " He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life....For my flesh is is food indeed, and my blood is drink indeed." You believe he is speaking symbolic while I don't, whose interpretation is correct and why?

Jesus said that when the Holy Spirit comes He will guide you into all truth. No man interprets correctly without His guidance. aka exegesis = correct.

Peter spoke against those who interpreted on their own. aka eisegesis = error.

\\The Sanhedrin ordered certain beliefs to be held. \\

OTOH, the leadership of the SDA never does that, right?

Each person must answer to GOD. Each person will be asked what and why did you follow Jesus or not. In all matters.

So how does someone else get to be the person who tells them what to do. The Sanhedrin ordered certain beliefs to be held.

Now each denomination can and should uphold their belief system. But no one but GOD will judge us in the end.

It is okay to dis-fellowship a person. But to murder them is not okay.
