Jehovah Witness Bible Differences
  
If you were witnessing to a Satanist, or a witch, would you need to know what was in their book of spells or 'bible'?
It's not necessary to get down in the gutter, become drunk to pull the drunk out of the bar, or the pull the addict up.
If you're short on time, be in season, use the Word of God.


Jehovah Witness And The Trinity
  
All you need to know is what a Christian believes. The Holy Spirit can deliver this person from error. If you are sincere, why not fast and pray for their spiritual eyes to be opened to the Truth? We have all witnessed that denominational arguments rarely change a mindset. Prayer and fasting.

Daniel, I'm quoting your words, but they they apply here as well. You've said it well.

I think you need to focus on what BEING a Christian means from the Scriptures rather than how some particular church's doctrine differs from any others! ONCE a person has been truly saved by God, which may include ANYONE who really wants to know Him and follow His words (even if they happen to be in a church teaching FALSE doctrine), they'll find other Believers they can discuss the truth with.

"For those who've yet to be saved (though they may be seeking answers) or are vehemently opposed to the truth of Scripture ), it may be necessary to point out errors in their comments or even debate them about heretical teachings, but doing so rarely, if ever, removes the blinders from their eyes; only the Spirit can do that, so we pray for Him to work in their lives."

Daniel, you are correct. Bruce, you are too.

An endless cycle of words will not convince anyone of anything. Only the Holy Spirit can remove blinders from eyes. Thank you, gentlemen. Getting caught up in a whirlwind of words will spin your wheels, and leave you back where you started. Right at the beginning of 3,222 posts. Thanks again, I appreciate your wisdom.

The personal 'contexts' taken from library books, literature could be used as a secret tactic to get the 'enemy' to talk. Forced to sit in a room and read them for months; an endless dripping on your head. Brainwashing. They're not healthy for your brain or head. I won't be reading anymore of them, not if I can help it.


Once Saved Always Saved
  
If I never, ever, hear the term, "people just don't understand the context of scripture" one more time, from someone who uses William Shakespeare to interpret the Bible; it will be one time too many.

If I never hear "I'm the only one using Scripture", and "you must understand the context, OSAS", ever again, it will be too soon.

I wouldn't walk 20 feet to hear anyone talk about their private context ever again.


What God Can't Do
  
I am convinced that the Bible is the only infallible authority.

I do not want interpretations from library books or literature or someone else's head.

I will run from those claiming to have private interpretation that comes from man.

Forever, O Lord, Thy Word is settled in heaven.

2 Peter 1:20,21

Knowing this first, that

no prophecy of Scripture

is of any private interpretation,

for prophecy never came

by the will of man,

but holy men of God

spoke as they were moved

by the Holy Spirit.


Jesus Teen Years
  
A man that has friends must show himself friendly; and there is a Friend that sticks closer than a brother.

Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.

O Lord, art a shield for me; my Glory, and the lifter up of mine head.

For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is perfect toward Him.


Jesus Teen Years
  
The Lord your God which goes before you, He shall fight for you, according to all that He did for you in Egypt before your eyes.

The Lord is faithful, who shall establish you, and keep you from evil.

For you have been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.

For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous,His ears are open to their prayers; but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.
Who is he that will harm you, if you be followers of that which is good?


Jesus Teen Years
  
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
to an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fades not away, reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the Scripture is of any private interpretation.
For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man; but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.

Jesus Teen Years
  
And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
If the Son therefore shall make you free, you shall be free indeed.

For the law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus has made us free from the law of sin and death.

Now the Lord is that Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is Liberty.

For You have broken the yoke of his burden and the staff of his shoulder,
The rod of his oppressor,
as in the day of Midian.


Jesus Teen Years
  
Believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God;
many false prophets are gone out into the world.

This is the message which we have heard of Him, declare unto you, that God is Light, and in Him is no darkness at all.
If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:
But if we walk in the Light, as He is in the Light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.


Someone Commits Suicide
  
Catherine, do you have any scriptures to back up these thoughts of yours?


Is Slain In The Spirit Fake
  
OSAS is not the topic, but it is the only message you have to give.

Without the Holy Spirit backing up false doctrines, you don't have a message.

God gives us His Word, when we are faithful to deliver His Word, there is always a message.

OSAS cannot move away from the grind. They cannot stay on topic. The only topic they keeping grinding away on - is OSAS.

Every topic becomes OSAS, their minds are consumed with OSAS.
There is no other topic for them.
