Questions, answers, and topics aside, I've seen no evidence of vs22-25. I see knowledge being tossed around, and a lot of pride, but haven't seen an ounce of the love, and ways of Christ. I see a large chunk of the equation missing, by the very same who want to teach, but are missing very key elements that would gain them the respect they need to be effacatious. I don't see people being treated as God commands, so whoever is guilty of defying God by dismissing His call to being humble, meek, patient, and kind, etc., while believing they're on some higher spiritual plane, then woe to you. You can strive for obediance, knowledge, holiness, and purity, but without the love that should come natural as a new creature, you're human efforts are nothing but a clanging symbol...a lot of noise.
Excellent thoughts Bro. Christopher.May we by His Grace always endeavor to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
Also wanted to give an update on our great g-child whom I asked for prayer months ago...
Lurker wrote: "To my mind..."? Okay John. You've made it abundantly clear that you will not engage legitimate biblical questions but will ever practice deflection and diversion.... So be it. Have a great rest of the day. . . . June, You can ask me about my beliefs if you want. I don't bite. The answer is NO, I'm not Arminian. John just can't get over the fact that his version of original sin isn't biblical and he can't convince me otherwise. That's why he falsely accuses me of such things as humanist, cultish, mysticism, etc, etc. to which I won't even dignify with an objection. It doesn't bother me. God knows my heart. John and I have been on the comment board for around 13 years and have discussed about everything there is to discuss. There are a few here who know both of us well and our beliefs and if they had a mind to speak up I believe would say that I'm none of the things John accuses me of.
I can attest to that Bro. Lurker. You and Bro. James have been misrepresented, slandered, and gossiped about for days on this thread, while you both have been patient and gracious in your comments.
Between the continual romanist dung that is considered ‚Äúnews worthy‚ÄĚ and seems to be dominating this forum, and the biting and devouring of ‚Äúsome‚ÄĚ who feel the ‚Äúcalling‚ÄĚ of straightening out everyone‚Äôs doings or not doing this site is a joke and a complete waste of time.
I wish you well and God‚Äôs blessing be upon you as you grow in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour.
Great Sermon! Thank you bro.Ken for always preaching and exhalting our Lord Jesus Christ.
Our condolences on your loss, and we are remembering you and yours at this difficult season.
Finally the Truth! Thank you for preaching the truth about this pagan Roman Catholic Cult festival that Christendom has embraced into their idolatrous religious clubhouses every December 25th.
Lovely to hear the Gospel preached in all its Glory.
Great Sermon! Another helpful exposition.
One of the very few preachers of the Gospel who always points His sheep to their Shepherd.
Thank you brother for always exalting and giving all the Glory to our Lord Jesus Christ.
