Christians Without Bibles
  
II Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

If you have no Bible, how will you learn good doctrine or be instructed in righteousness.

You cannot trust the person preaching. I am a preacher, and I say do not trust me--check what I say out in your Bible!

In Acts 17:11, the people did not even trust the apostles. They went back and searched the scriptures.


Do You Go To Church Of Christ
  
CofC does not believe in worshipping with music, because they say it is not mentioned in the New Testament.

In Revelation 14, the elders sing around the throne of God in Heaven using harps (musical instruments).

This is not the only problem with the CofC, but I would not discount them as brethren.


UFO At Chicago O'Hare Airport
  
Juan, you have the right idea. Noted Christian apologist, the late Walter Martin saw a UFO, and he stated what you just did. Chuck Missler and Dr. Mark Eastman have a book called "Alien Encounters" that looks at this from a Biblical perspective.

These "aliens" are not interplanetary but interdimensional. They are demons and can, do, and have throughout history manifested themselves in our space-time.


What Is A Fundmentalist
  
Eloy, do you believe the fundamentals of the Christian faith? Christ the only way to Heaven, Bible the Word of God, etc.?

Then you are a fundamentalist. It is not the leaven of Pharisaism. Now certain fundamentalists will tack on extra commandments from their own hearts (which is legalism), but I have seen this in many denominations, so please do not generalize.


Is Psychotherapy A Todays Cult
  
The brain is the conduit of the soul, but like any other organ, it can get sick and need medication.

I said "medication" not therapy.

Psychology is a corrupt fruit from an ungodly seed. Its basic tenets are contradictory to scripture. (I have degrees in both psychology and theology).

Why is psychotherapy now being questioned by the ungodly with psychology degrees who have practiced it for years yet accepted by God's church?


Is Psychotherapy A Todays Cult
  
Past issues? Philippians 3:13 -- "Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,"

All past issues are is the fruit of unforgiveness.

...I should know. I beat severe depression without medication or "therapy."


Preach 10 Commandments
  
The Pharisees were not "strict in observing Mosaic Law" as one of you said. Jesus said they weren't in Matthew 23:23. They added their own commandments to the Law (Rabbinical writings) along with their own traditions (Mark 7:13).

The Law shows as all that we are sinners. It was not done away with by the New Covenant. Much of the Mosaic Law is repeated in the NT. Come on, people. STUDY.


Reactions Of Spirit-Filled Person
  
Evidence of the Spirit's filling is the fruit of the Spirit, not fulfilling the lusts of the flesh.

But longsuffering does not mean you put up with error. Jesus was not "P.C" when He twice dumped over the tables in the temple and called the Pharisees sons of snakes and good-looking gravestones. Yet, He and the Spirit are both God. Could it be that we have a skewed view of what it means to be spirit-filled and Christ-like?


Reactions Of Spirit-Filled Person
  
Yes, there is such a thing as a non-Spirit-filled Christian. Galatians 5:16 says to "Walk IN the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh." The Holy Spirit is to flow through you (Galatians 4:6, John 7:38.)

"IN" means engulfed with and surrounded by, and this happens from the inside out. Many have the Spirit welling within but quench him.

Plus, if one is acting in the flesh with its many lusts, you are not filled with the Spirit and need to repent.


Is This Prophetess Of God
  

If the prophet's prophecies fail, they have spoken presumptuously, and while we no longer can stone them, you are to close your ears and eyes to them. The Bible says that false prophets will come in the last days and will deceive many.

Many people yelling "touch not mine anointed" are not anointed by God! Trickery Broadcasting Network, the false prophecy channel, yells it all the time (or at least used to when I used to watch) whenever someone tries to lovingly correct them.

Proverbs 13:13-14 Whoso despiseth the word shall be destroyed: but he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded. The law of the wise is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.

Luke 8:15 (Christs Words) But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the WORD, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.

HEARING THE WORD BRINGS FAITH Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

THE WORD SANCTIFIES AND CLEANSES Ephesians 5:26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it (context-the church) with the washing of water by the word,

YOU GROW THROUGH THE WORD -- I Peter 2:2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:


Tithe To Church Only
  
Thus saith the Lord -- Matthew 23:23 -- "Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone."

I repeat, not to leave the other (tithing) undone. That's New Testament.


Is Body Piercing Wrong
  
Our bodies belong to God, and there is a scripture in Leviticus speaking of putting marks on your body.

Christ fulfilled the Law; He did not do away with it. We do not sacrifice, because Christ is the sacrifice, but we still need to discern between what is good and what is evil. When one tattoos or pierces the body, s/he is saying, "This is mine, and I can do whatever I want with it." This is not true. (I Cor. 6:19-20).

Body piercing comes of pagan ritual.
