I Want To Serve God
Mike that is not the meaning of Colossians 2. You fail to grasp it's meaning because you don't understand the whole chapter. That part IS SUMMARIZING the verses before. BUT THE BODY IS OF you a clue. Start with Colossians Chapter 1 and slowly read exactly WHAT and WHO make up the body of Christ....and WHY the CHURCH is not under law....KINGDOM LAW the 1000 year reign of Christ AKA A SHADDOW OF THINGS TO COME. We are not under LAW OR KINGDOM LAW . Why is that hard for you to understand? Because you don't want to understand it, or because your not IN CHRIST AKA THE BODY OF CHRIST?

Leftist Hatred Tearing USA
I don't believe socialist countries allow demonstrations. Neither do communist countries. So that reasoning is off the chain. And it's more than just one person getting murdered by a policeman. Again, sounds like someone is trying to rewrite history .

I guess the Boston Tea Party antics was socialism in the making too. Since then, according to Jerry, we began as a socialistic country.

ven, I'm saved and I know I'm saved. You too can KNOW YOU HAVE ETERNAL LIFE, AKA SAVED.... ****1John 5:13.**** If God said we can KNOW WE HAVE ETERNAL LIFE, who is man to cause you to doubt your salvation? Believe God and His word, and not man.

Just ask the Lord...HOW CAN I KNOW I HAVE ETERNAL LIFE? If you are saved, believe me God WILL give you that assurance, by 1) giving you the Holy Spirit
2) baptizing you into CHRIST'S Death and raising you up together with Him A NEW CREATURE. PHIL 3 "THAT I MAY KNOW HIM, AND THE POWER OF HIS RESURRECTION" is another witness to our salvation.

If you have never experienced this CHANGE in your life....that is why you don't know, and just may not be saved.

Leftist Hatred Tearing USA
So that cop that murdered an unarmed man....well two lately, one here in GA are leftist cops?..WOW, I wasn't aware that part of their politics was revealed. Thanks for that interesting update Jerry .

I SEE more love coming from democrats than republicans. Trump running to the fire with more gasoline isn't helping. Even other republicans are calling him out on that.

So is this ANTIFA who jumped in and trashed these peaceful demonstrations leftists? Really? You say the democrats support them ? I thought they were just a renegade group of anti-establishment morons having no real agenda then to create anarchy ....just for the heck of it.

President Trump Twitter Facts
Who's freedom, Trumps or Twitter's? Trump doesn't have a leg to stand on. He's a baby having a tantrum, brags he's the most powerful person in the World, and got humiliated and needed to make his grand stand to try to save face.

There should not be two sets of rules, one for Politicians and another for the rest. And it's not just Trump who is getting flagged. So it's not some personal issue ..Trump always claiming it's about paranoid.

Trump and his executive orders are becoming a joke. His executive order has no teeth. Trump has no power over private corporations. The poor guy just has no clue about the constitution. And he's bringing to light just how ignorant he is on the rule of law.

I Want To Serve God
Adegoke, I believe Romans 12:1-2 tell us what God wants from us....and I know if you obey those verses, the Lord will live and work through you. God wants to work through you. First you need a transformed mind to even know the Will of God, and exactly what pleases him. Then God will work in you to will and to do of His good pleasure. Where or what the Lord may call you to may be different than what He may call another to. He will give you a GIFT OF THE SPIRIT, for the work of the ministry. Ephesians 4.....will explain.

What Is Your Truth
The law applies to our sinful FLESH. GRACE applies to out NEW MAN IN CHRIST, where we are no longer in the flesh but in the spirit. 2Corinthians 5:16 and Romans 8:9.

God no longer sees those SAVED in the flesh, nor are we positionaly still in our sinful flesh once we are born of the spirit. We are crucified with Christ where our flesh was crucified with Christ...Galatians 5:22-25, Romans 6:1-18.

Why is this so hard to understand. It's explained so simply in scripture....even Colossians 2 reiterate. 1 Cor 15 again more fully explains. Yet you guys harp on two verses pulled out of context and ignore all the rest...WHY

And in heaven ETERNAL, we are NOT IN THE FLESH.

What Is Your Truth
Mike, there's no sun or moon in the new heaven and earth. How will the sabbath be kept? Rev 21:23, Rev 22:5. The shadow of things TO COME is the restoration of the kingdom to Israel, the one Peter asked about in Acts 1:6-7. Yes when that happens during the 1000 years, KINGDOM LAW will be in effect. But we're not there yet, and the Church is NOT ISRAEL, nor are we under KINGDOM LAW. Jesus will have returned to earth setting up His kingdom, before all is then delivered up to the Father 1 Corinthians 15.

Great verses Linda. Paul didn't start the doctrine of justification by faith, God did all the way back to Abel, as Hebrews 11 show us. Heb 11 not once mention law keeping as a condition of faith or vice versa as David insists.

****If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and His love is perfected in us.****

IF I get in my car and drive to the store and buy eggs , I am a consumer and contributing to commerce.

These are statement restating a FACT not a condition of IF YOU WILL THEN I WILL.


If I break my arm the Dr will put it into a cast and assure it will heal safely.

Hebrews 4:1-3
Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it. For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it. For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world. ...

This TRUTH shows the works of Creation the 7th day pointed to Jesus Death and resurrection. Only the Holy Spirit can enlighten you here. Only those who have ENTERED HIS REST understand that entering HIS REST is salvation.

This is what God has given us. Hopefully those who understand scripture know this doesn't mean wood bleeds.

Colossians 1:20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself, by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.

21 And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled

22 In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:

What Is Your Truth
"The Grace for Grace" in John 1 is not saying God will give you Grace in exchange for your grace. David just made that up without any other scripture to back up. Romans 5 also say where sin abounds GRACE MUCH MORE ABOUNDS. Some Bibles say GRACE UPON GRACE, which would back up Romans 5.

BUT AGAIN...the NT GRACE is refering to SALVATION. No amount of your grace can save you.

Titus 2:11For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,

Hebrews 2:9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour, that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.

What Is Your Truth
1 John, "we love Him because He first loved us". Romans 5 also state the Love of God is shed abroad in our heart by the Holy Spirit. John 3:16....FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD HE GAVE....

We are told of Gods love for all sinners through His Word. God took the initiative to call out to Adam and Eve after they sinned. Gods love made a way for man back to Him through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. No one can come to the Father except through His Son.

The Gospel of Grace vs Law is shown in Romans 10. I think it's beneficial to start with verse 1.

Grace is THE CROSS. There is no salvation of Grace apart from THE CROSS. Read Ephesians 1,2,3,4,5 and 6 very carefully and slowly. It's an amazing letter.

Deuteronomy 6:5
5 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.

Jesus reiterates this again in matthew. To say only LOVE is commanded in the NC and is easier to keep makes no sense. We See many OT Saints as Job for instance, Noah, who LOVED GOD way before any NC came into being.

The difference between the NC AND OC is under the old blessings were based on IF YOU WILL THEN I WILL.
Under the NC the promises are I WILL. it's an unconditional covenant. Hebrews 13:20-21. Ezekiel 36. 2Cor 3. Just to name a few places reiterating this fact.

Steveng, the WORD OF GOD is not based on conspiracy theories, but HIS WORD.

Seeing the Holy Spirit enlightens us by HIS WORD, and a strangers voice we do not hear, being tossed to and fro with every theory out there where folks have ruined their lives believing them is not of God. It's you steveng who will take the mark because you have put your faith in men. REPENT.

Mike, Strongaxe was quoting scripture Paul wrote to CHRISTIANS. Paul was not addressing the pagan world.

In the OT no one was HOLY AS HE IS HOLY. 1Peter 1:14. The law addressed sinful man ...and a DAY was considered HOLY.

TODAY those IN CHRIST ARE HOLY, because we are IN THE HOLY ONE. We ENTER INTO HIS REST, Hebrews 3-4 aka entering IN CHRIST, so now we are called to be Holy as He is Holy.

Why is this do hard to understand. Paul did not write Hebrews or Peter? So we have MORE witnesses here stating the SABBATH is not a day, but a LIFE. read Hebrews 10. And James never says we must keep the sabbath. Job never kept any sabbath.

These are dangerous times we are in today. I see how easily the apostate Christian is so easily led by these wolves in SHEEPS clothing filling their heads with so much nonsense in the name of God and Country, not being able to distinguish between the two. There is no Gospel of America folks ....but underneath it all that is what drives you. It's the selfish right wing driven by false prophets who don't care about social distancing and selfishly demand their own ways at the expense of others and our healthcare workers and EMT's Police etc. And it's all being driven by our President throwing meat to his base who claim to be the Christian of this nation. NO THEY ARE NOT. THEY ARE THE IGNORANT OF THIS NATION BEING LED BY WOLVES.

What Is Your Truth
David teaches you have to do something to earn Gods love...his use of John 14:21. Then says those who have first earned Gods love then are showered with His Grace. ...whereby then we are saved ...WRONG.

Not even the Law makes such a statement. Also this same John wrote 1 John 4:19 still doesn't teach what David teaches.

You cannot earn Gods love. John 14 Jesus is speaking to his disciples who already showed their faith in Jesus first.

Now John 6 where Jesus states those who eat his flesh and drink his blood WILL BE RAISED UP .AKA RESURRECTED . That is what salvation is. Hebrews 6 shows one can taste of the Spirit of God and still reject Him. Heb 10 say one can insult the SPIRIT IF GRACE.

What Is Your Truth
David uses the Calvinism definition of GRACE. With that faulty definition David then promotes a faulty definition of the Law. By Grace we are saved through FAITH . Please see Paul's definition of GRACE IN EPHESIANS 2:1-10. PAUL is telling us those crucified together with Christ are saved by GRACE. GRACE IN THE NT IS THE CROSS. Galatians 2:20-21 also reiterate. Nothing about God's unmerited favor. God does not snatch anyone unaware and crucify them with Christ against their will. We are to OBEY Romans 16:25-27 which is this mystery.

This is the Gospel David Rejects.

What Is Your Truth
What it means Mike is shown clearly in Galatians 5:22-27. Why is it so hard to understand. Grace in the NT is CHRIST IN YOU, via being crucified with Christ..also stated in Galatians 2:20-21. Now with Christ in you, the Holy Spirit brings forth fruit ..the fruit of the spirit, where keeping the law never could...Romans 7.

Walking in the spirit brings forth fruit
Walking in the flesh under the law, brings forth death, because no one can perfectly keep the law. It shows us how weak we are and that it's impossible to keep. That's why THE LAW is a schoolmaster bringing us to Christ, where we now live by faith IN CHRIST...GAL 2:20-21. The law IS NOT OF FAITH.
