1 Corinthians 15:5-8

 And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve:

 6  After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.

 7  After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles.

 8  And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time.

Paul differentiated himself and named himself as separate from "the twelve". Judas Iscariot didn't see the risen Christ, but he was seen by "the twelve" and seen lastly by Paul.

Genevanpreacher,

As I taught very clearly, and as the scriptures very clearly state, Paul was an Apostle and as the scripture clearly state there are only twelve apostles.

Also, as you very well know, I closed this study on Titus as I was finished, and the comments that you wrote are not worthy of consideration. If you would like to publicly admit your mistakes and apologize for your erroneous beliefs, than I would accept those comments from you; nothing else.

No Nicolaitans and Wearywarrior,

Thank you very much for your comments and scriptural integrity. I do appreciate your posts very much.

Recent OnLine Baptist Brethren,

If some of the newer brethren here on OnIine Baptist have comments they have to make on Titus, then I would enjoy hearing them.

Oh good grief. I quoted it, highlighted it and referred to it twice. Do you not even know what you are saying when you spit this nonsense out?

And blasphemy? Really? Blasphemy? I interpret a scripture different than you do, not even scripture about doctrine, and you pull out "blasphemy"?!? You must be a real blessing behind a pulpit.

That's the GP I've come know, though. Sometimes you are like talking to a Mormon woman, with some of the weirdest mixture of the most feminine and circular logic imaginable.

I think I'm gonna move on for a while. You're getting me a short, and I don't want go there. It's not worth it.

Well here's another great 'christian' attitude.

You are of course allowed  to have your own opinion.

I just wish you weren't so high and lifted up on this site. Then people might be able to really learn. Instead they get a little learning mixt up with a little trash.

Your vanity has been much magnified this day Alan, and that surprises me not one iota. 

Paul the 12th apostle? What a joke.

Thanks NN.

Exactly!

Except the Bible says it is "The Acts of The Apostles". 

And look at all the 'acts' ...

Philip was not an Apostle.

Barnabas was not an Apostle.

Stephen was not an Apostle.

Or were they?

Yes, but not of the 12.

Brethren,

As Rebecca mentioned, the subject matter of the Apostles was concluded in this thread and continued in another thread. Also, the subject matter on the matter of tithing (giving), that StandingfirminChrist mentioned is also a closed matter. The subject of tithing (giving) has been throughly discussed in other threads.

There have been new members on OnLine Baptist that have not had an opportunity to discuss the other subjects in the book of Titus. I would like answer any questions, or clarify what I said, to those brethren who would like to ask questions, give us your thoughts, or maybe even add a testimony that would help our understanding of a passage. 

Looking forward to any new discussions that will help our understanding of the book of Titus or the Christian life.

In Christ,

Alan

Brother, can we expound some more on Truth and Godliness. It seems that such an important topic should have some more.

"Paul, a servant of God, and an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the faith of God's elect, and the accknowledging of the truth which is after godliness." Titus 1:1

On ‎2015‎年‎8‎月‎24‎日 at 3:58 PM, Alan said:

"... that ye might be partakes of the divine nature ..." 2 Peter 1:3

After salvation, through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, the believer is partaker of the, "... the divine nature..."

The nature of God is Truth in all matters; absolute truth with no admixture of error. Godliness in the part of the believer, is an acceptance of the truth of the scriptures in all matters of faith and practice. 

Any further thoughts, from anybody, on Truth and Godliness?

      Why isn't it "word" capitalized in Acts 6:2?  Is the word of God given to men less than the Word sitting in Heaven? If so, how? Both are perfect, and infallible. Is the Bible a dead book?

      "Remember, Remember, the fifth of November!"
      Guy Fawkes, Gunpowder and The Bible
      While the U.S. has its Fourth of July, complete with fireworks and revelry, England also has November 5 and it appears their celebration outdoes ours. All over the country “bonfire societies” field multiple parades complete with massive firework displays. .
      So, what is so special about November 5? It’s Guy Fawkes Day!
      Those who know the history of the holiday, know the significance of the “gunpowder plot” that got Fawkes and some of his buddies executed. But, if Fawkes had succeeded in igniting the fuse to 36 barrels of gunpowder, you and I might have a very different Bible to read today.
      The year was 1605, just 6 years before the publication of the King James Bible that became the standard English scriptures for some 400 years. King James had been petitioned by the Puritans to authorize the translation of a “new and completely accurate” English Bible. He immediately commissioned over 50 scholars from Oxford and Cambridge to begin the work. The men chosen were the most learned of their day not only in linguistics but biblical theology. Many of them were fluent in up to 14 languages.
      All this was happening in the middle of a pitched battle between the leaders of the Reformation and the Vatican. And the Bible was the prize in that war. For over 100 years the Reformers had fought to print the Bible in the language of the people. The Vatican had commissioned the Jesuits and the Dominicans with the task of destroying those Bibles. Politics had become one of the battlefields with the rulers of England alternating between Protestant and Catholic.
      At this point, King James was Protestant and almost literally had a bull’s eye on his back. Jesuit agents cooked the “gunpowder plot” to tunnel under the Parliament building and set off a massive explosive while it was in session. Their hope was to kill King James and as many of the Members of Parliament as possible.
      Guy Fawkes was enlisted by the pope to carry out the plan. He and about half-a-dozen other men started the tunnel and eventually positioned 36 barrels of gunpowder in place. In their attempt to carry out their plan, they met one problem after another so that, looking back, the Lord was surely toying with their little plan. During the digging, they hit an unexpected wall underground. But a cellar was discovered that gave them the required access. Next, Parliament delayed meeting for several months and the powder got wet and had to be replaced. Finally one of the men wrote a letter warning a Catholic friend to stay away from the building on a certain date. The letter ended up in the hands of the king who discovered the scheme just hours before the targeted meeting.
      November 5 was legislated a national day of thanksgiving for deliverance from “papists.” Today, it is celebrated as a fun festival with few recognizing the continued dangers of Roman Catholicism. But had the pope not lost that battle, you and I might be reading a Roman Catholic Bible, if we were even allowed to possess one.
      But the story of the war waged by the Vatican to stop God’s word for the common people is not over. Today gunpowder is not the weapon of choice, it is ecumenism and polluted bibles.
