Explain Matthew 6:1-2
  
Cluny, instead of telling someone they are wrong, why don't you explain WHY?


Explain Matthew 6:1-2
  
Tell me, cluny, how did you know that you were a sinner?


Explain Matthew 6:1-2
  
Before one is baptized, one must repent of their sins. Before one can repent of their sins, one must have knowledge that they are sinners. And that comes from the hearing of God's word. Babies and infants have no knowledge or understanding of God, Jesus, salvation, repenting, the gospel, sinning, etc. How can an infant repent if he does not have knowledge or understanding?


Explain Matthew 6:1-2
  
The OT was more of a physical nature. The NT is more spiritual nature. Same laws, different use.

Case in point: In the OT, it was a sin to physically murder someone, but in the NT even if you THINK of murdering someone it's a sin.

As for faith and works: faith without works is dead faith.

All laws are still given for it is written "...not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished." Remember that the NT was not written when Jesus and the apostles were here. All scripture is God breathed.
---
Love is found even in those who don't believe in Christ.

Once saved always saved is a false doctrine for it is written that in the end days many shall fall away from t he faith.

kathr wrote: "...Gospel of the Grace of God..."

There is only one meaning of "gospel" and that means the good new about the soon to come Kingdom of God. Nothing more. Nothing less. The gospel IS the Kingdom of God.

Grace/mercy is what God showed upon his creation. God showed his mercy throughout the entire bible. The same grace/mercy that a parent sometimes shows upon the child.


Explain Matthew 6:1-2
  
There are two resurrections.

The first is upon the return of Jesus when the dead in Christ shall rise and the living in Christ shall be caught up with the dead.

The second resurrection is at the end of the thousand year reign of Christ when all the other dead shall rise and be judged from the book of life ACCORDING TO THEIR WORKS.


Christian Symbolism Matrix
  
There are christian and santanic symbolism in everything we read, see, hear, smell, taste, and feel - subtle they may be. Movies and novels may seem to be right biblically, but Satan has a way to turn something that looks good into something evil. Timothy says something to the affect do not give heed to these movies or novels (actually he states fables, but that's what they are) that questions sound doctrine, rather than godly edifying which is in faith.


Baptism In The Epistles
  
cluny,

The word "lord" was/is a title to someone having authority. In the OT, they said, "Lord God." They also acknowledged kings and other people having authority as "Lord." In the NT, the word "Lord" is a title used for God and for Jesus, but they were two different entities. Scriptures also separated God and Jesus as God the Father and Jesus the Son. The son cannot be the father and the father cannot be the son. God's "word" became flesh not God became flesh. It's the same as an earthly father teaching his son his words and training the son in the way he should go. Jesus, and the christians, are heirs to the coming kingdom. God cannot be a heir to himself.

It sounds like all denominational "churches" for each "church" places a burden on each of their members which include each denomination's rituals, traditions, ways of living and interpretations of the bible.

Christians today make living a christian lifestyle complicated. Can a person be a christian without being a member of a denominational "church?"

Love, as in the verb form and from the heart, is the ultimate commandment spoken of by Jesus. Unfortunately, love has practically evaporated form the face of this world.

Why even study the scriptures if God's word and his laws change all the time?

Chria, please read the entire chapter of Hebrews7. Read it slowly.


Correct Bible Interpretation
  
The Fourth Commandment begins with the word "Remember."

This tells that this commandment was given BEFORE the Ten Commandments was given by Moses. Which was given on the seventh day of creation.


Baptism In The Epistles
  
Cluny, no contradiction. There are verses that are very explicit, like quotes, and other verse that are metaphors - and the meaning of words. The meaning of metaphors are completely different today than it was two thousand years ago. Be careful of what the vast majority of christians believe.

There are other verses that show Jesus in NOT God:

John 8:42

As for which Mary, read the entire chapter of John 20. It tells of which Mary. You always ask for BCV, but it seems you always take it out of context.

All of scripture is relevant. God's laws never change. God's word never changes. When Jesus and the apostles were teaching, from what scriptures were they teaching from since the NT was not written yet. The difference between the OT and the NT is that the OT was more of a physical nature, but the NT is of a spiritual nature. Same laws different use.

For instance, in the OT if a person murdered someone, that was a sin. In the NT, even if you THINK about murdering someone it's a sin. That's coming from the heart.

God is looking within the heart of man to populate the soon-to-come kingdom of God.


Correct Bible Interpretation
  
Why do you people make living a christian lifestyle so complicated?

LOVE, as in the verb form from the heart, is the ultimate commandment spoken of by Jesus. The entire bible is full of examples of HOW to love one another and HOW to love God.

Denominational "churches" put a heavy burden unto its members with their own rituals, traditions, ways of living and interpretations of the bible. You people seem to nitpick about what is right.

Here's an example of interpretation: One person would say "I love helping people" while another would say "I love killing people."

I know Satan can out bible every christian in the world - put together.

Cluny wrote: "Since Jesus Himself said that only the Father knows when He will return, where did you get the idea that you would know?"

Because the bible says so.


Baptism In The Epistles
  
Cluny,
We, in today's world, will never know the true meaning of what was written two thousand years ago.

Again:
Jesus is not God, but let's reason this out.

Why would Jesus clearly state to Mary "...I ascend unto my Father and your Father, my God and your God. And...

If Jesus was God, having the same mind, wouldn't he know of his return, but he doesn't. Matthew 24:35-37, Mark 13:32, Acts 1:7

Before one is baptized, one must repent of their sins. Before one can repent of their sins, one must have knowledge that they are sinners. And that comes from the hearing of God's word. Babies and infants have no knowledge or understanding of God, Jesus, salvation, repenting, the gospel, sinning, etc.

Are christians to do all that Jesus did? Even to be baptised?

kathr4453 wrote: "...Once IN CHRIST we are never separated from God..."

So, you believe in OSAS (Once Saves Always Saved) doctrine.

How do you explain the end time prophesy of "there will be a great falling away from the faith. One must have faith to begin with in order to fall away, eh?


Trump Protect Religious Freedom
  
Kathr4453, all eight of Obama White House's official holiday cards reads "Happy Holidays." Remember that muslims are allowed to lie to infidels to reach a certain agenda - that includes pretending to be a christian.


Cluny, Satan has only a short time left before Jesus returns and is destroying as much of God's creation as he can especially the Jews and the christians. The LGBTQ and the Leftists hate christians because they consider the bible as hate against their groups.

joseph wrote: "Steven what make you think the 10 commandments were "given to all mankind"? What is the statement based on?"

My statement is based upon the Word of God.

God chose the Israelites to bring his word to the world. They failed in their task thinking it was only for them.

Be like the Bereans and search the scriptures yourself. By searching the scriptures yourself, you will learn a whole lot more than if I just handed you verses on a silver platter. Ninty-nine percent of the christians would not dig deeper in God's word or even consult with the Holy Spirit. They would just read the verses and leave it at that.
