The New Testament Books
God chose the Israelites to spread the word of God throughout the world, to declare His glory among all nations, His wonders among all peoples. They failed thinking it was only for them. The same mistake christians today make.

Sola Scriptura - according to whose interpretation?

It's been two thousand years and the written words of God has gone through many interpretations as even the language today. Even today interpreting the original hebrew, and greek, is very difficult. How Many bible interpretations are there in the world? This is why God sent out the apostles without any written material, but rely only upon the Holy Spirit for guidance. The written word is for our benefit for instruction, but when is it time to go from the word to the Holy Spirit?

As for eating meats:

1 Timothy 4:1-5
Genesis 9:17
Acts 10:1015
Mark 7:14-23
1 Thessalonians 5:18
1 Thessalonians 5:18

The New Testament Books
Everything written in the NT came from the OT. All things taught in the NT came from the OT. Jesus and the apostles referenced the OT many times. The main difference between the OT and the NT is that the OT was of a physical nature and the NT is of a spiritual nature.

The "books" of the NT are simply journals and letters written by a few men. There are tens of thousands of other journals and letters written by thousands of other people about Jesus and what he did which can be found in three of the largest libraries in eastern Europe and Egypt. Even the Romans were very meticulous in keeping records especially regarding science, business, and court trials.

The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is a loving God. He is also a just God. He will judge those who did not rise at the first resurrection (those who believed in Jesus) according to their works.

Why waste time having a second judgement when all those in Christ were already judged/resurrected the first time?

There are two resurrections:

The first is upon the second return of Jesus when the dead in Christ shall rise and the living shall be caught up with the dead. This is at the beginning of the thousand year reign of Christ.

The second is at the end of the thousand year reign of Christ when all the other dead throughout all history shall rise and be judged from the book of life according to their works - some to everlasting death, some to everlasting life.

Blessed are those that rise in the first resurrection.

God is a righteous judge and judge those that are good at heart. James 1:27

What about the people who don't believe in Jesus or God, but still does God's will?

Christ Baptist Church
How does one know the thoughts of God if he has or hasn't chosen people before the foundations of the world?

Revelation 1:8
Matthew 20:16
Revelation 17:14
1 Peter 2:4,9
2 Thessalonians 2:13
Ephesians 1:4
Acts 9:15
Mark 13:20
Haggai 2:23
John 15:16

Can Religion Save Me
Pure religion and undefiled before God the Father is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

If you love God, obey his commandments.

The only gospel that Jesus and the apostles taught is the coming Kingdom of God. That's it. Nothing more, nothing less. Of course, they also taught about how to get there.

Christ Baptist Church
kathr4453 wrote: ...FAITH is used two different ways in scripture."

Only one faith and that is in God to do what he promised. Why complicate God's word.

Christ Baptist Church
There are many warnings about falling away from the faith and one must have faith to begin with in order to fall away, eh?

When a person endured unto the end of his or her life, they are still saved for it is written that upon the return of Jesus, the dead in Christ shall rise and the living in Christ shall be caught up with the dead.

The ONLY gospel, the good news, is the coming of the Kingdom of God. That's it. Nothing more. The gospel OF Jesus is not ABOUT Jesus, but it is the coming Kingdom of God. And, of course, it was taught HOW to get there.

Can Criminals Change With God
Long-time sinners change, do they not?

Explain Matthew 5:16
There are other scriptures besides the one written in Revelation that say 'one should not add or take away from the words of God.'

What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it. Deuteronomy 4:2

"Add thou not unto His words, lest He reprove thee, and thou be found a liar." Proverbs 30:6

1 Corinthians 4:6 In today's language it means: 'not to think beyond what is written.'

Every word of God is pure, he is a shield to those who put their trust in Him. Proverbs 30:5-6

The entirety of Your word is truth. Psalms 119: 160

Living Christian Lifestyle
Mark_Eaton wrote: "Fourth, is this another query from the Steveng bag of intellectual tricks?"

Tricks? You assume way too much. Do you usually falsely accuse people like a few others on this site? Remember two of the six things that the Lord strongly dislikes: a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers. And possibly a third: a heart that devises wicked plans,

So, what evil lurks within your heart to make such an accusation?

Did Paul Replace Judas
There are those who don't believe that will also have eternal life.

Did Paul Replace Judas
Once saved, always saved is a false doctrine. Many verses warn christians about falling away from the faith (one must have faith to begin with in order to fall away).

Gospel? The coming Kingdom of God.

The gospel of Jesus? The coming Kingdom of God.

The gospel of _______? The coming Kingdom of God.

The bible also shows us how to get there: love, as in the verb form.

There was no replacement for Judas. Anyone can become an apostle (one sent on a mission) even the christians of today. 1 Corinthians 12:28, Ephesians 4:11

Qualifications? One must believe with all his mind, body and soul.

Why do christians make living a christian lifestyle so complicated?

Should We Pay Taxes
Nicole_Lacey: "...HE established ONLY THE CHURCH!"

God established government and nations. Jesus established the church. Even Moses was told to form a "government." Who takes presedence, God or Jesus?

As for taxes:

The tax code is unjust and very complicated. An investigative reporter sent out 30 tax forms a few years ago to be reviewed each having the exact information (a family of four, same wages, etc), ten to IRS agents, ten to accountants and ten to tax preparers. All 30 came back widely different.

Scriptures Of The Early Church
Mark_Eaton: "The truth..., it is a who. Jesus is the Truth. Jesus is the Word."

Most people, including christians, misunderstand the bible because of semantics. Most use today's knowledge to understand the meaning of what was written 2,000 years ago.

Mark_Eaton: "[Jesus] taught as no one ever taught before... was totally new. His commandments were also new..."

God word is nothing new. It was since the beginning, is, and ever shall be.

Mark_Eaton: "...and His yoke is indeed easy..."

Why do today's christians vainly think that they are any different than all the christians of all history?

Why do today's christians make living a christian lifestyle so complicated.
