  1. Doctrine Reproof Correction Instruction in righteousness (attributes of God)
  2. Thanks for your comments, but due to the "culture" of that area, I don't doubt that they simply were not aware that they were "sinning" (as hard as that is for us to believe). It seems to me that they were simply "feeding the flesh" (and lusts thereof). To me, there is an obvious omission by the Holy Spirit of the word "backslide/backslider" in the entire New Testament. Now, there is a "command" doctrine of "walking in the Holy Spirit" which, in 45 years in IFB, I have never heard a single "peep" coming from the pulpit on this "doctrine". It's not at all unusual for O.T. (Hebrew) "
  3. A concordance search will reveal that the "doctrine" of "backsliding" is nowhere found in the New Testament. This is yet another example of "replacement theology", where a doctrine that applies to Israel is misapplied to the Body of Christ. Hosea 11:7 And my people [Israel] are bent to backsliding from me: though they called them to the most High, none at all would exalt him. Hosea 4:16 For Israel slideth back as a backsliding heifer: now the LORD will feed them as a lamb in a large place. Jeremiah 8:5 Why then is this people of Jerusalem slidden back by a perp
  4. Matthew 13:18-23 Kingdom Parable: Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower. When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side. But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it; Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended. He also that received seed among the thorns is he th
  5. [on the road to Emmaus, Jesus speaking] Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory? And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself. Luke 24:25-27
  6. This section of Hebrews deals with a comparison between Mount Sinai (12:18-21) and Heavenly Jerusalem (12:22-24). Written to "To the general assembly and church of the firstborn", which I would consider to be strictly a Hebrew group (including the Patriarchs). I would consider vs. 22-24 to be a yet future event (and destination) -- a "reunion" of sorts -- as the "general assembly" is panēgyris which is a festal assembly and celebration. vs. 18: For ye are not come unto the mount [Sinai] that might be touched, and that burne
  7. Perhaps you could elucidate on Matthew 25:1-15 "The Parable of the Ten Virgins" as it applies to the Body of Christ? I wasn't aware that Paul knew all the parables and used all the parables in his teaching (Romans - Philemon).
  8. A lot of Christian "cults" (heresies) have been formed by taking the parables literally and applying them to the Body of Christ. IFB "Baptist briders" come to mind. Was Jesus speaking to the Body of Christ when he spoke in parables? 1. Doctrine, 2. Reproof, 3. Correction, are all separate "categories". As to the "Instruction in righteousness", well that could be understood to be the entire Bible. Break the verse down into its elements.
  9. And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him. Genesis 17:19 Abraham "believed God" that Isaac would "have seed" (ie: children, descendants). So, Abraham also believed in the resurrection, had Isaac died. In obedience he "offered up" his ONLY son (btw: technically he had "another son" - Ishmael). Bits and pieces, but no mention of "Jesus" or that he would die for the sins of the whole world, be buried and be raised ag
  10. What "criteria" do you use to determine which "parables" apply directly to the Body of Christ, or do you apply all parables directly to the Body of Christ?
  11. What if Abraham had not actually committed to slitting his son's throat when Isaac was on the woodpile? What if Abraham had just acknowledged that that is what God wanted him to do, and thus "understood" the "sacrifice of an ONLY son" but not acted on it? Would Abraham have been "justified" by simply "believing"?
  12. Harvesting will occur during the Tribulation. The "end of the world" could be expressed as the "end of this age" or "end of this current world", as the Millennium will be a "new world". Separation of the "sheep from the goats" will determine who enters the Millennial Kingdom, and who is cast out. I see no application in this "parable" for the Body of Christ.
  13. By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise: For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God. Hebrews 11:8-10
  14. Back to the OP: All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD: and all the kindreds of the nations [Gentiles] shall worship before thee. For the kingdom is the LORD'S: and he is the governor among the nations. Psalm 22:27-28
  15. And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law; 1 Cor 9:20 To a strictly "Jewish" audience, Paul would of course pursuaded them that the "Kingdom" (on earth) was still available to them as a Nation, and opened up the Old Testament to them.
