  1. This topic is not to say one should not rebuke, reprove and exhort. It is the manner in which one goes about doing it whether tears someone down or lifts them up.
  2. Yes. My groans usually lead to crying though. :-( So when I'm that deep in despair that is what it means the HS intercedes? Awesome!
  3. Ok...I'm wrapping my head around it. What does it mean when the Spirit groans with words that can't be expressed"? (Paraphrasing)
  4. Yeah...the charismatics refer to praying in the HS as speaking in tongues. I'm trying to figure out the correct application.
  5. How so? I'm just curious as I am still learning this. Thanks.
  6. Can anyone enlighten me as to what exactly does that mean?
  7. I was corrected regarding the KJV. Steve Schwenke lovingly shared scripture and respectfully asked me to consider. I could tell he really cared and now I am a KJV believer. I will share with others in the same way he shared with me.
  8. I agree. People have stood by the "correcting, refuting, rebuking" scripture to justify proving themselves right rather than trying to help someone.
  9. Christians can use scripture to correct for instruction and doctrine but there is a proper way and the reason for this thread. Instruct, don't argue. Correct, don't criticize. I am including myself as I have allowed myself to argue. The person doing the correcting needs to remember their own shortcomings.
  10. I want to be clear as to my intentions for posting this thread. It is not because of what happened in one particular thread or between particular people but multiple threads and multiple people I have been involved with and in and some I have not. In the short time I've been on this forum, several threads had to be locked. I think we all need this post as a reminder that we are having discussions with other brothers and sisters and we should treat them as such.
  11. My goal is not to win. I posted this thread for myself so I can be in the right attitude when discussing topics. I'm sorry but some people do make personal assaults on others on this forum so how do you not take that personally?
  12. For anyone reading this and may have read the thread on alcohol, which is now locked, can honestly say I was promoting alcohol? I said I don't drink nor did I condone getting drunk. Anyway, this thread is not about alcohol so I will not speak on that anymore.
  13. Peter was being a hypocrite and trying to gain public approval rather than stand for what he believes.
  14. Sadly, SFIC you were not correcting me but criticizing and making false accusations. I am going to prove to you my Christianity and character by not getting sucked into that again.
  15. I'm kind of looking for something that covers the whole Bible so that while I'm reading, I can go to the commentary if I don't quite understand the passage and need some deeper insight. Does that make sense? For instance, I was reading about praying in the Holy Spirit...well, I wanted a more in depth understanding of what that means.
  16. Attitude is important. Ephesians 4:32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you. Speak the truth in love. Ephesians 4:15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: Galatians 6:1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. Do not have a critical spirit. Galatians 5:14-15 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another. Keep the spirit of unity. Ephesians 4:3 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. Judge rightly. John 7:24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment. Only God judges accurately. James 4:11-12 Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge. 12 There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another? Do not be legalistic. Colossians 2:20-23 Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances, 21 (Touch not; taste not; handle not; Do not pass judgment on disputable matters. Romans 14:1 Him that is weak in the faith receive ye, but not to doubtful disputations. Do not judge God's servants. Romans 14:4 Who art thou that judgest another man's servant? to his own master he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be holden up: for God is able to make him stand. Romans 14:10 But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.
  17. I suppose you're the epitome of all wisdom but you lack charity and compassion.
  18. Don't tell me I'm lost. Now you're saying I'm causing people to drink? You're not "Standing Firm in Christ." You're standing firm in yourself.
  19. I tried that. I told myself I would not read any other writings except the Bible and let the HS teach me but I think I've come to realize that God uses people to help other people.
  20. Stop saying I'm promoting. Where did I say that in any of my posts?
  21. I totally and completely understand why you are against alcohol because of some of the things you shared with me that happened to you.
  22. Are you saying I'm lost because I went to a banquet for charity where there was no alcohol?
