Colin, you bore false witness against me. I posted one comment on this thread, and spoke ‚Äúdown‚ÄĚ to no one. This is a news forum not a gathered worship and teaching service of the church so we can ALL give our views and opinions on the various subjects. Btw I never referred to C.H. Spurgeon as a heretic, another false accusation. You need to do some reflection and mind your table manners, sir.
Acts 20:21. ‚ÄúTestifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ‚ÄĚ. Clear what repentance in the Scripture is. What is promoted by most religious people is RC penance. Synergistic man made methodology, not the free and sovereign grace gospel.
‚ÄúIf we allow Priscilla to have contributed towards the instruction of Apollos, as doubtless we may, It is certain it was only in private discourse; which being enjoined with a meek and humble behaviour, might be very effectual for the conversion of souls, 1 Pet.3-1,2. Thus Timothy was indebted for his knowledge in the things of God to his mother and grandmother, 2Tim.1:5. But otherwise it is not lawful for a woman to teach‚ÄĚ.1Tim.2:11,12. ... Matthew Poole 1624-1679, Biblical commentator.
Acts 18 wrote: 24 And a certain Jew named hApollos, born at Alexandria, an eloquent man, and mighty in the scriptures, came to Ephesus. 25 This man was instructed in the way of the Lord; and being fervent in the spirit, he spake and taught diligently the things of the Lord, knowing only the baptism of John. 26 And he began to speak boldly in the synagogue: whom when Aquila and Priscilla had heard, THEY took him unto them, and expounded unto him the way of God more perfectly.
Priscilla was under the spiritual headship of Aquila and was teaching along with him to Apollos, not solo,as Jen Hatmaker is doing.

A blessed soul indeed, whom Christ shall find, not having our own righteousness (Phil 3:9), but having our robes washed and made white in the blood of the Lamb. (Rev 7:14). Great encouragement and hope for the true children of GOD.
Stevenr wrote: Matthew 5:19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. I can‚Äôt judge anyone‚Äôs heart or intentions. I have no clue if the woman is a child of God‚ÄĒjust saying that if she is, she is up for a rude awakening. But then again, how many on here are in the same boat? It may not be homosexuality they are ‚Äúpromoting,‚ÄĚ but what about pride? An uncaring and unloving heart? What are we promoting that makes Christ want to spew?
Refreshing to read a post where someone actually isn‚Äôt trying to judge and condemn another sinner and refer to them in a condescending derogatory manner and consign them to the lake of fire.
John UK, I see your Diotrephes spirit has been awakened again. I do not not answer to you or any man but my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and my husband, so keep that ‚Äėordering‚Äô around speech and evangelical feminist nonsense tripe to yourself.True to form for you,if you can‚Äôt win the argument, you abuse the opposition.
A few things need addressed after reading comments from John UK.
JMac was not referred to as a heretic. His teaching on LSS was called heresy. (easily verified, by scrolling through the comments.) Gary Shepard‚Äôs e-mail was provided for you to address him personally concerning his teaching, instead you decide to post here on how in error he is, and provide your opinion and other men‚Äôs opinion on the matter, and then go off into rabbit trails...again. ... If this statement from JMac doesn‚Äôt send chills down a true child of God‚Äôs spine, I fear for you, and him. ‚ÄúThe only validation you will ever have of your salvation is a life of obedience‚ÄĚ.ūüė≥ Sounds like romanist speak, not the good news of the Gospel. ‚úÖ
Well, sister lb the second half of the duo has arrived to bolster up his counterparts lectures, so before this thread is shutdown or continues on with the false rants, I‚Äôll be taking my leave. Thanks for posting up the links on JMac. they speak volumes.
Just reread this article again. It is a wonderful blessing to have Gospel rest in the Lord Jesus Christ. Hopefully, she will continue to always rest and look to the finished work of Christ for His people and never give heed to the voices of the legalistic religion she grew up in.
Perhaps those who think Pastor Shepard ‚Äúneeds to investigate his subject more thoroughly‚ÄĚ and give their opinion that he is biblically in error on the matter, should e-mail him and voice their concern. [email protected]
