    Whats for Supper...

    We met up with a young man whom we've known since birth (in Indiana). He lives here in the state now, and this is the second time we've been able to get together. He lives about 3 hours away, but he's just over an hour away this week doing some training for the job he has lined up when he is mustered out of the army next month. He came to Sequim, and we met at the Black Bear Diner. Good food. My hubs had pot roast and I had chicken. I pretty much filled up with my salad and onion rings, so hub is munching on my leftover chicken right now. The food was good and spending some time with Joe was great.

    Indeed...all temporal things shall be burnt; however, God's word isn't temporal and is settled forever in heaven. If this is just a case of word-play, then I will bow out. I have no desire to debate such things such as this.

    (Isaiah 40:8) The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever. (1 Peter 1:25) But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.

    Matthew 24:35 and several other similar: Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. Christ is the Word and the Word is Christ. If you know His Word, you know Him as you know yourself. This cannot be achieved by men's published books, it can only be achieved by saturation in God's Word. You must consume yourself with listening to Him just like most the professing consume themselves in temporal, self-interests.

    Hey Jordan, I hope you are satisfied with the answers to part 2 of this question? As far as Part 1 is concerned: Mar 16:15-20 (15) And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. (16) He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. (17) And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; (18) They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. (19) So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. (20) And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen. This passage gives the purpose for the gifts: (20) And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen. The purpose of the signs was to "confirm the Word with signs". Since the Word is the completion of that which is "in part", and no longer needs such confirmation - because we KNOW it is the Word of God, the signs are no longer needed. This is hardly watertight Jordan, but it is another indicator, and maybe a passage that you can investigate further in regard to this matter.

    Bzzzz - wrong. The subject of the passage is knowledge and understanding. The "Body of Christ" is nowhere mentioned in this passage(1 Cor 13), and for you to apply it to this has absolutely no justification, and your application of the phrase "perfect man" to somehow relate to the "body of Christ" also has no justification.

    I didn't quote your whole post brother but agree with every word and was about to write/ask something similar.

    At the completion of the canon of scripture, the Book of Revelation, the church was not a child but a mature adult. As an adult, the church did not need the prophecies of the New Testament prophets as recorded in the book of Acts, the gift of biblical tongues, languages, and the knowledge that the prophets had. All of these gifts ceased at the completion of the New Testament canon of scriptures. All, may I repeat all, of the apostles, prophets, and the so-called "tongues" gifts in our age are false. The church, the body of Christ, is mature and not a child. The written scriptures are the only, may I repeat, the only body of knowledge and prophecies that the church needs. A child needs to lead by the hand by a tutor; an adult does not. The prophets and the 12 apostles (please note I said 12 Apostles), were the tutors of the early church. The "early" church was the church in the child stage. The sign gifts: Prophesies, Knowledge and the gift of tongues were childish things. The mature Christian, a mature church, does not need these "childish things" that are recorded in 1 Corinthians 13:8-11 1 Corinthians 13:8 is explained by Paul in verses 10 and 11 Marilyn, In connection to your above post, in order to fully know your statement, please answer the following three questions. 1. Do you still believe that there are apostles in the world today? 2. Do you consider yourself an apostle? 3. Does the church that you attend have "apostles?" The scriptures, not a Greek dictionary, defined an Apostle as an disciple who was personally, and audibly, called, and chose, by the Lord Jesus Christ face to face. "And when it was day, he called unto him his disciples: and of them he chose twelve, whom also he named apostles." Luke 6:13 The twelve apostles were audibly, personably, and in the presence of the Lord Jesus, called, and chosen, to be an apostle. After the death of John the apostle the office of the Apostle ceased to exist. Alan
