  1. 2Co 4:1 Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not; 2Co 4:2 But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God. 2Co 4:3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: This is what happens when things are taken out of context. The verse has nothing to with "withholding evidence" nor not speaking your entire mind and keeping some things to your self. It has to do with th
  2. Pro_29:11 A fool uttereth all his mind: but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards.
  3. Rom_10:14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? Should answer the original question. The 12 apostles were annonted by the Holy Spirit to teach, preach and spread the Word. During this period many besides the 12 were also annointed to do so and led by the Spirit. We have the Word. It is complete and we are each individually commanded to study the Word to show ourselves approved. 2Ti 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth
  4. Yes, agreed. It is a glorious continuity. Some just have a hang up with the word "dispensation" and the moment someone uses that word they are regarded as heretics etc. Call it what you will, covenant, ages, dispensations - they are just words meant to describe the same thing - that God dealt with mankind differently during the "glorious continuity" of His interaction with us. Just like the word "rapture" - try find that in the bible. We are not raptured, we are taken up. But that's another debate for the contentous. Haven't been here for a year and I see not much has changed. Still arguing ab
  5. You are wasting your time. Many here do not believe that God dealt differently with man - ie - dispensations/ages or whatever you want to call it. Ironic as there is a huge difference between OT works and NT grace just to name two examples. Never mind how God dealt with man pre flood and post flood before the Law came into effect. Haven't seen many sacrificing goats and sheep at the temple lately have you? A lot to read, yet the truth is right in there if one bothers to read it. Act 15:1 And certain men which came down from Judaea taught the brethren, and said, Except ye be circumcise
  6. In other words nothing extra than what you are allready wearing? Makes sense. Didn't think of it that way. Thanks all.
  7. Mar 6:7 And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits; Mar 6:8 And commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, save a staff only; no scrip, no bread, no money in their purse: Mar 6:9 But be shod with sandals; and not put on two coats. Mar 6:10 And he said unto them, In what place soever ye enter into an house, there abide till ye depart from that place. Mar 6:11 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against
  8. I assume that you mean that I am leading others to believe that the MP's are ok to be used as "commentaries"? A commentary being another persons take on God's Word, which in a sense is exactly what the MP's are - other idiots take with important parts missing of God's Word. There is always two sides to a coin - you say they can be led astray - I say they can make one AWARE of the false doctrines being taught. I am wary of people that place an honorific before there name and then always try and keep people from doing our God given right and HIS command to test the spirits, seek the truth and q
  9. The faith OF Christ imparted UNTO all them that believe and then take very carefull note how it is changed in all the new versions to a faith that we excersise in our own strength. Did you bother to read???
  10. The only reason I can see the bible using sheap as an example of believers is because of the true "shepard/sheep' relationship as an example of the relationship we should have with Christ as one of simple trust, everywhere else in the Word we are told to seek, test, judge, study and try the spirits - this is not the behaviour of sheep! Christians are NOT sheep!!! And it is a mistake to teach that we should behave as sheep in relation to the world when we are told to be as meek as doves yet as wise as snakes. Sheep again refers to the responsibility a pastor as towards his flock, not our at
  11. No, I am saying that it is not our faith that saves us but rather the faith of Jesus Christ the man who in faith trusted His father and went to the cross on our behalf. we are dead in sin so how can we have a faith that saves? Hebrews 12:2 - Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of [our] faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. Galatians 2:16 - Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that
  12. God gives grace to the humble and resists the proud. It is NOT our faith that saves us but the faith of Christ on the cross - it's our humility that saves us through His faith - think about this.
  13. What you forget is that because of Adams sin, all have sin. Adam brought sin into the world. So any who might have been born in the garden would have been guilty of sin through Adams sin. Just as we are, though through no fault of ours. Through one man sin came and through another sin is taken away.
  14. What you all seem to have NOT noticed is that in the OT God dealt with mankind as individual nations (or family) groups - the sins of the father (patriach/leader/king) passed onto the children and so forth down the line - i don't have time here to quote scriptures here but if you look them up under this understanding of how God dealt with those under the LAW in the OT you will see that when ever a nation was living in sin the entire nation was dealt with, regardless of the innocent living amongst them - possibly guilty through association maybe. An example was the exodus of the Jews, the child
  15. Sadly too true, myself included most days.
  16. I have tatoos. Many of them.I wasn't stupid enough to tatoo on my arms etc but I wear a shirt mostly all the time. I also did tatoos for a few years and can state that they in no way glorify God or His Word, but must also state that any believer that does decide to get "chopped" is an "imature" believer but still and alway will be under God's grace. I have and always will advise against them though. Even the so called "christian" tatoo artists.
  17. Ahh! Now I see what "copies" you were refering to - those same ones Jesus read from.
  18. So you would apply this statement to the MV's? The Message for example?
  19. In the end it's faith. Do you trust that God preserved His Word? We can never know the original meaning nor why the translators chose that particular meaning - but we do know God promised to preserve His Word and even though He did do just that we still read it wrong sometimes and come up with our own translation to suit our own ends from His preserved Word. Must take dogs and wife to beach - will continue later.
  20. Every Saturday - oh how my flesh cringed - led more to the Lord in that short period than in my whole life. Had the pleasure of meeting Dr Peacock when he visited South Africa and hearing him preach in the flesh was a blessing - very unnassuming and humble man.
  21. Wilchbla - agreed, excelent school but far more focused on teaching how to preach and rightly divide the Word than on "theology". More a focus on hands on than head knowledge. And though I have no problem using Hebrew and Greek and the studies of other great men - I will never take my doctrine or understanding of God's Word from them - this comes from His preserved Word - the KJB. I know the Baptist college here in SA no longer teaches that we are to be taken up and some of the other founding doctrines. But then a lot of the baptists lost the plot years ago.
  22. I studied for a while through TBDI (http://www.tbdi.org/)and I know they are a KJB only college yet I can't remember ever been told catergoriaclly not to. I personnally will not use a dictionary or lexicon to get the meaning of a paasage or behind a word as I beleieve the context of the passage will always supply the required meaning - this is plain understanding of english - if the meaning is not immediatly obvious a little digging in the chapter will reveal it every time. I will however use them to get a little historical background to the author or setting for some deeper understanding if r
  23. You can delete your face book account, the trick is to NOT log in for 30 days. Try it, it worked for me. When you delete the account the small print says that if you log in before 30 days are over it will be reactivated.
