My Second Amendment
//We need more of the BOC who have godly character and spiritual wisdom to get involved in the lives of others. Our "throw money at it" Christianity is failing.
---Mark_Eaton on 3/8/18//
You are right on.
As a shooter for years, military and civilian, I have used real assault weapons, unlike an AR. Gun control is not the answer. I believe if we allowed God back in our establiisments, we would see less violence

My Second Amendment
Why would one think new laws attempting to control firearms in the hands of law abiding would help?
Did we forget the "fast and furious gun walking debacle"
Those were real assault weapons unlike ARs.
It is not law or weapon choice.
Bad things happen as a result of mans rebellion in Adam. Good things happen as a result of Gods grace in Jesus Christ.

We are saved from sin and death when we trust in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross and his bodily resurrection. His shed blood pays for our sins,(Heb 9:22) earns forgiveness, and gives us eternal life.
Salvation is not a product of water baptism. good works, commandments,
church membership, mass or the Lords Supper
Salvation is free to the ungodly who will put their faith(Heb 11:6) in the death, blood, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ for their sins (Rom 4:5, Roms 4:24-25, 1 Cor 15:1-4).

How To Follow Jesus
Anyone trying to follow Jesus pattern to Israel in Matthew-John has missed the revelation of the mystery of Christ given later to Paul (Eph 3:1-4).
Anyone who thinks that by observing the laws of abstinence and fasting in Catholic Canon law keeps them on the straight and narrow path to salvation have missed their complete position in Christs body.
if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances,Touch not, taste not, handle not, Col 2:20
Our spiritual standing is not determined by the restrictions we put on our flesh, but by our membership in the body of Christ (Rom 5:2).

My Second Amendment
many, many laws against drugs,
drug use and overdoses are at all time high, maybe another law would help. Laws against drunk driving worked out well.
In a fatherless society, we need more men to follow the Bible pattern. A good mother bears the truth with gentleness, affection, and labors night and day to see their children grow up in Gods will.

Lack Of A Healing
The lame man was healed without faith.
Acts 3:2 And a certain man lame from his mother's womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple, 3 Who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple asked an alms.
4 And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us. 5 And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them. 6 Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none, but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.
7 And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.

The New Testament Books
Gospels according to Matt-Jn is the kingdom gospel.
All four of them contain the same gospel: the gospel of the kingdom. The gospel of the kingdom declared the fulfillment of the prophetic kingdom to the nation Israel.
If Paul taught the same gospel as those before him, then why did he call it my gospel three times?
when Paul mentions my gospel it shows that he had a unique message.
Pauls gospel made no distinction between Jew or Gentile. All are counted in unbelief as sinners, and are judged by God without respect of persons whether given the law or not.
Paul says "In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel. Romans 2:16

The New Testament Books
//Paul clearly lays out and uses ABRAHAM AS ITS FOUNDATION. ..//
1 Cor 3:11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
//THAT IS THE CENTRAL TEACHING OF THE CROSS, not just Jesus dying and rising again.//
The resurrection of Christ is central to Pauls gospel and message. It is not a secondary issue or an afterthought.
1 Cor 15: 13-14
But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen: And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.

The New Testament Books
All four "gospels" contain the same gospel: The gospel of the kingdom, declaring the fulfillment of the prophetic kingdom to the nation Israel.
What isn't there is the gospel of the cross for salvation. Christs death, burial, and resurrection don't occur until the final chapters.
Paul's gospel is the death, burial and resurrection of Christ as the means of salvation and sanctification for ALL humanity as a new creature, the BoC.
Pauls gospel message was entirely of Christ, and "him crucified"
Paul stands alone in calling it the gospel of Christ and Christs gospel, but calling it my gospel can only be explained by the fact that Christ gave it first to Paul exclusively.
Peter didn't preach Paul's gospel.

The New Testament Books
The most important thing to learn in discerning Gods will in the Bible is to rightly identify and divide the mystery of Christ from what was spoken to the prophets concerning Christ.
What God had spoken of by the mouth of His prophets since the world began is not what God kept secret since the world began (Acts 3:21 vs. Rom 16:25).
Mixing mystery truth with the message prophesied to Israel has led to many doctrinal heresies and confusions.
Without understanding the mystery Christ revealed to Paul we cannot be faithful stewards of those mysteries, nor faithful ministers of Christ.

The New Testament Books
John, preached "baptism of repentance for the remission of sins. (Mark 1:40)
Jesus tells of His death and resurrection. The twelve didn't understand. (Luke 18:31-34)
Peter said, Repent and be baptized... for the remission of sins..." (Acts 2:38)
Peters message to Israel repeated Johns message,
While he preaches the death of Christ,(Acts 3:14,15) Peter condemns Israel for killing Christ and doesn't preach the cross as their glory (Acts 5:28, Acts 10:39). Killing their This is not preaching the cross as good news.
Pauls gospel in 1 Cor 15.
Paul, was the first to preach the gospel of salvation as the glory of the cross (Gal 6:14, 1 Cor 1:18).
Paul is our pattern for preaching the gospel of Christ(1 Tim 1:16)

The forgiveness of sins is made possible by the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. By his grace God offers forgiveness of all sins to any man in Christ.
This does not mean everyone is already forgiven, for not all men are in Christ. Not all men have faith.
The benefits of the gospel of Christ, including benefits of the blood, are only given to those that first trust the gospel (Eph 1:13).

The New Testament Books
OT doctrine is for our learning(Rom 15:4) not our doctrine
Jesus instructed men to offer sacrifices (Matt 8:4), taught the law of Moses (Matt 19:17, Matt 23:1-2), frequented the Jewish temple, separated from Gentiles (Matt 10:5, Matt 15:24)
The subject of Jesus earthly ministry in Matt-Jn is not the subject of His heavenly ministry given to Paul. Learn the two-fold ministry that Jesus has for both the heaven and the earth.
Pauls gospel gives the full explanation as to the purpose of Christs death and resurrection, which was hidden since the world began, but had been appointed to Paul to preach.

The New Testament Books
Since the majority of Matt-John and Jesus entire earthly ministry occurred before his death then no doubt these four books are still in the context of the Old Covenant.
This explains why Paul wrote Jesus was a minister of the circumcision to confirm the promises made unto the Fathers (Rom 15:8).
This also explains why Jesus operated according to the Old Testament:
He was circumcised (Luke 2:27) water Baptized (Matt 3:15) taught Conditional forgiveness (Matt 6:14) taught Levitical Sacrifice for Healing (Matt 8:4) Follow the commandments (Mark 10:17-19)
Obey the Pharisees (Matt 23:2-3) Observed feast days (Matt 26:17)

The New Testament Books
The Bible is clear that Jesus was born under the old testament.
when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law Gal 4:4
This explains why, he was circumcised and sacrifices were offered according to the law (Luke 2:21-24).
While on earth Jesus ministered under the OT. The scripture is clear (Heb 9:15-17)
For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth. (Heb 9:17)
A testament is of force only after men are dead, this means the NT couldn't begin until after His death. Jesus died in the very end of his earthly ministry recorded in Matt 27:50, Mark 15:37, Luke 23:46, and John 19:30.

What Is The Condition Of Church
2 Chron 7:14
The land belonged to Israel (2 Chron 6:25). The church the Body of Christ does not have one square inch of land promised to them by God. This is why we are called ambassadors and given a heavenly position (2 Cor 5:20, Phil 3:20).
