Doctrinal teaching with weakest Biblical support

Doctrinal teaching with weakest Biblical support
Posted by in Facebook's Pentecostal Theology Group View the Original Post

Terry Wiles Interesting that the poll is shaded to not include the Old Testament as part of “all” scripture.  That’s pretty standard today.  Let’s just rip it out of the Bible.  🙂
Tom Torbeyns That’s Marcionism
Marc Jackson Terry Wiles This poll is designed to show ppls’ secret sins 🙂 You may notice we are 2 for 5 right now
Ricky Grimsley Lol
Ricky Grimsley I can some of you right now  “ oh the church needs some money. Better dust of Malachi and preach a sermon” completely out of context.
Ricky Grimsley Yes you have reveled our secret sins to be cheerful givers instead of Pharisees living by a law that was fulfilled and breaking all the other ones that don’t con people into giving more than they can.
Terry Wiles Hum.   Most cheerfully give to everything but the advancement of the Kingdom of God.   Credit card companies keep great records for a coming payday.
Ricky Grimsley You have to mishandle the Bible to prove tithing. IMO
Terry Wiles IMO, you have to mishandle the Bible to reject tithing.
Ricky Grimsley What other parts of the Old Testament do you live by?
Ricky Grimsley If your preaching the sermon…what texts will you use. Also can you provide any other example of tithes not being food other that than Abraham who gave the other 90 percent to the pagan kings?
A.J. Bible Ricky Grimsley you can’t use Abraham or Issac or Jacob to disapprove tithing. They were not under the old testament law.
Ricky Grimsley I’m just looking for one scripture where tithes is about money besides Abraham
Marc Jackson So you keep your money to yourself?
Ricky Grimsley Lol. I give to my church. It’s actually more than 10 percent. But I’m not obligated by the Bible to ten percent.
Marc Jackson Matthew 22:21 Jesus said “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s; and to God the things that are God’s.
Ricky Grimsley That was talking about tAxes not tithes. There’s no way you would preach that as proof.
A.J. Bible Tithing is not under the law. Tithing predates the Mosaic Law.
Ricky Grimsley Tithing is also only about food.
Marc Jackson Matthew 22:21 Jesus said “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s; and to God the things that are God’s. was all about cash but many chose to ignore it
Ricky Grimsley It’s about taxes. It’s pretty simple.
A.J. Bible Tithing is about wealth. Giving to God of your increase.
Ricky Grimsley Of food…..every time but Abraham
Ricky Grimsley Show me one time it was money?
Marc Jackson What was Matthew 22:21 Jesus said “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s; and to God the things that are God’s.  about? Certainly not about some fish 🙂
Ricky Grimsley Lol there is no tithing here. It’s about taxes.
Ricky Grimsley It actually says that
Joshua A. Humphries I disagree with Ricky on the food point, but he’s right that Matthew 22:21 is a pretty bad basis for New Testament justification of tithing. I can think of other justifications that I see as eisegeses, but even they have better text justification.
Ricky Grimsley I’m still waiting for a non- food related tithe verse. Besides Abraham anyway where he gave the other 90 to the pagan king
Joshua A. Humphries Deuteronomy 14:22-27 makes it clear that people in the agricultural society of the time should give a tenth of the gains they have in food (to support the priests and others involved in the operation of the temple); or if they live too far to get the food to the temple, they should sell their agricultural products to get money to go buy food to give to the people of the temple. By the time of Jesus, plenty of people didn’t farm and the interpretation was that they would use ten percent of their income to feed the people of the temple.
Timothy K. Wiebe Tithing isn’t NT. Giving everything is. Not ten percent, 100 💯
Terry Wiles And of course every good believer gives 100%?  Lol.   If those who called themselves Christians would simply tithe their local work for the kingdom of God would advance.  But they, instead, use higher percentages on their own lusts which in many cases means their worship of some “media ministry” so called.
Ricky Grimsley Joshua A. Humphries they had money.
Joshua A. Humphries Yes, which you would have seen if you actually read what I said. Since you didn’t, I’m finished with talking to you about it.
Marc Jackson Ricky Grimsley knows how to talk people out of talking 🙂
Ricky Grimsley Yeah talking here usually doesn’t do much good. Joshua humpries just made up some stuff and then gets offended when I don’t accept it. My point was that tithes was always food even though they also always had money.
Ricky Grimsley Troy Day only Charles page is better than you at that.
Joshua A. Humphries Troy, I’ll just repeat what I said earlier since some folks have trouble reading. 😂Deuteronomy 14:22-27 makes it clear that people in the agricultural society of the time should give a tenth of the gains they have in food (to support the priests and others involved in the operation of the temple); or if they live too far to get the food to the temple, they should sell their agricultural products to get money to go buy food to give to the people of the temple. By the time of Jesus, plenty of people didn’t farm and the interpretation was that they would use ten percent of their income to feed the people of the temple.
Marc Jackson Ricky Grimsley you just dont accept Pentecostal theology 🙂 You got your own thing going on like Charles Page
Ricky Grimsley Lol
Ricky Grimsley What about the fatherless, the widow and the stranger. Does he live with your pastor at the church with the offerings you only take up every three years or do we just leave that out. Just throw your bible away if you are gonna misuse it like that.
Jerome Herrick Weymouth Folks argue all the time on tithing…not enough teaching on divorce. Remember God hates divorce… People who have been saved over 30 years and have been divorced 3 times!
Junior Beasley New testament tithing…lol new testament teaches missions…New Testament Added Missions, tithing has never changed, never read where Jesus death on the cross removed tithing..Tithing isn’t under the curse of the Law. Offerings for sin is under the curse of the Law..what bible.do you ppl read? Smh
Jerome Herrick Weymouth Jr., I’m a tither my point was that more people are divorcing and seeking reconciliation and healing in this are…I work at TBN and I hear several prayers requests a day on marriages going through divorces….I think there’s a lack of teaching in the church.
Jerome Herrick Weymouth P.s. Missions started with the book of Acts and on the day of the resurrection!
Marc Jackson Ricky Grimsley secret sins revealed while NO one thinks sanctification has weak Bible support Now there’s something
Link Hudson Not enough explanation.  I went with the first two.  But there still needs to be clarification.  I think first century Jewish Christians tithed in ‘New Testament times’, but that the priestly temple system received the tithes.  They were zealous for the law, not later allegorical interpretations of it.  Abstinence for alcohol was required of Nazarites.  There is good support for that.  The poll doesn’t specify exactly in what context it is referring to abstinence, but the American Bible belt doctrine that any non-medicinal moderate consumption of alcohol is sinful is not Biblical.What about divorce and remarriage?  The idea that it is allowed?  The current loseness of interpretation?  The previous practice of trying to adhere more closely to Biblical standards?What about Holiness Sanctification?  We should all believe in being holy and being sanctified?  Is this about the idea that one has to have one specific experience of being entirely sanctified as a discrete ‘step’ before one can be baptized with the Holy Ghost.
Marc Jackson I would say this 1 things – according to this POLL the TRINITY is ROCK SOLID I dont care what Ricky Grimsley says 🙂
Ricky Grimsley I’m trinitarian. Lol
Marc Jackson All Trinitarians believe the church fathers 🙂
Ricky Grimsley Really so you believe in transubstantiation?
Marc Jackson not too sure on that one but I certainly dont believe His Body and His Blood are just symbols
Ricky Grimsley There’s only too choices. It’s just like baptism. Either it saves you or it don’t.
Jerome Herrick Weymouth Getting wet in the tank doesn’t save you…that teaching was started in the 3rd. Century by Cyripian. He also started the “no salvation outside of the church doctrine.”
Ricky Grimsley The teaching on divorce is rock solid too
Marc Jackson wondering why you feel like pointing it out
Ricky Grimsley Because it’s biblically clear.
Marc Jackson one clear to some is another clear to others
Ricky Grimsley There is at least some New Testament scriptures to talk about. Tithing…..not so much.
Marc Jackson yes thanks – Jared Cheshire just messed the Trinity score 🙂 it all downhill from here
Ricky Grimsley Well Jared should just read all the salutations of Paul and John 1 :1-18
Jared Cheshire Well Ricky Grimsley, should just understand the salutations of John and Paul.
Ricky Grimsley 1 Thessalonians 1:1 KJVS[1] Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, unto the church of the Thessalonians which is in God the Father and in the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ?
Jared Cheshire There are no commas in the Greek. It is also the Hebraic form to use poetic parallelism in descriptions.
Ricky Grimsley So Silva and Timotheus are other names for Paul. I got cha.
Jevan Little How come those salutation only call the Father “God”?
Ricky Grimsley Doesn’t matter. It establishes more than one. We can establish deity of Chris from other passages.
Jevan Little But maybe the distinction there isn’t personal
Ricky Grimsley You don’t think Paul and Silvanus are different persons. Jk.
Ricky Grimsley There are two somethings greeting you. Not titles either.
Ricky Grimsley There would be no conjunction.
Ricky Grimsley There are at least two wills greeting you. I’m uncomfortable with persons too but the facts remains it’s more than one.
Jevan Little But only one is called God. The other is Lord. Peter said he was made both Lord and  Christ.Could the distinction be about Jesus being human? He is God imcarnate..God in human form
Jevan Little Orthodox Trinity teaches teaches Christ has 2 wills
Ricky Grimsley He doesn’t anymore since the resurrection
Jevan Little Which will doesn’t he have?
Ricky Grimsley I’m not really orthodox though. I see the trinity as body soul and spirit. Three wills in one body
Ricky Grimsley Christ no longer has a human will
Jevan Little Really? You’re a Trinitarian?
Ricky Grimsley Yep. I work with two upci pastors and we are pretty close to the same but I see distinctions they don’t see. Plus I don’t believe Jesus was just a plan in the mind of the father. The Godhead has always been.
Jevan Little Father, Son and Spirit are distinct but if he no longer has a human will, how is he still out mediator or high priest?
Jevan Little Jesus wasn’t just a plan. He was/is God
Ricky Grimsley Jevan Little will we have human wills after we are resurrected?
Marc Jackson From the POLL – looks like people want to drink and re-marry while keeping their money from God. Little care toward Trinitarian holiness
Ricky Grimsley Or people just don’t add to the text like others do
Marc Jackson Solid teachings are under fire today. Then we ask why a next generation has gone liberal It is our fault Terry Wiles
Ricky Grimsley Tithing isn’t solid
Marc Jackson Tithing isn’t solid for stingy people out there
Ricky Grimsley It’s not solid because you can’t make a case for it from scripture
Terry Wiles No.  It’s the select the scripture we want to apply to me members of this group who are at fault.   Just saying…”all scripture….”
Junior Beasley New testament tithing…lol new testament teaches missions…New Testament Added Missions, tithing has never changed, never read where Jesus death on the cross removed tithing..Tithing isn’t under the curse of the Law. Offerings for sin is under the curse of the Law..what bible.do you ppl read? Smh
Ricky Grimsley Again where is tithes ever about money
Scotty Searan The Bible doesn’t teach total abstinence from Alcohol, but it does teach about being drunk.  It does teach about wine being a mocker.  It does teach not to be deceived by the wine.You never know the deceitfulness of alcohol till you have been an alcoholic, or lived with one.Now if we as Christians are part of the priesthood, how we can we approach the Holy Of Holies drinking wine. If Jesus Christ is our sacrifice and our high priest, how can we offer our bodies a holy sacrifice drinking wine.Leviticus 10:9 “Do not drink wine nor strong drink, thou, nor thy sons with thee, when ye go into the tabernacle of the congregation, lest ye die: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations:”Romans 14:21 “It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor any thing whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or is made weak.”This is the responsibility of all.
Ricky Grimsley Well said Scotty. It would be nice if there were more comments like that.
Melvin Shomo The divorce and remarriage You cannot stop your spouse from fornication and then they up and leave you.. The act of formication is supposed to give one the right to marry another.Plus under the old covenant it was an abomination to even accept your spouse back in your life again once they had played the harlet.But regardless we serve a forgiving God.King David took his wife back by force from another man.He lusted after another man’s wife and set him up to be killed in battle so he could keep it a secret.In a sense both women David should of left go but he could not undo the wrong he already done,, and to turn both women away would of been the greater sin.The only thing King David had left was to ask for forgiveness and repent within his 💓 heart
Marc Jackson Shomo I read to about lines 4-5-6 and have a few questions1. where does the Bible say you cant stop your spouce – dont it say love  your wife love your husband?2. where does the Bible say “act of formication is supposed to give one the right to marry another.” Says right to leave not re-marry3. where does the Bible say “King David took his wife back by force from another man.” Dont it say he took another man’s wife using his royal pull? Where is the BIBLE in these sayings of yours? Book, chapter and verse please
Jevan Little Bunch of drunks
Melvin Shomo Troy Day can you stop your son from taking your gun from behind your back to shoot the people, do you have eyes in the back of your head?The part that you cannot keep your spouse from doing their own thing behind your back. You have no control of. We all have been given the choice to either do good, or do evil. If your spouse does not love the Lord, how are you going to control her, or his freedom to choose good or evil..You don’t need a Bible verse to prove this, common sense explains it for you..Not only this, you could have a job that takes you away from your home weeks at a time. How are you going to keep your spouse from temptation..Where in the scripture does it say that you have to stay celibate because your spouse has chosen to be with another. And where does it say that your marriage is an unparden sin.King David would of had a lot of unpardened sins. Repentance and forgiveness is highly misunderstood by many..King David taken his wife back by force after King Saul gave Michal his daughter to another man to sleep with and to marry..2 Samuel 3:14 And David sent messengers to Ishbosheth Saul’s son, saying, Deliver me my wife Michal, which I espoused to me for an hundred foreskins of the Philistines.15 And Ishbosheth sent, and took her from her husband, even from Phaltiel the son of Laish. You have to remember when Jesus walked the Earth it was not uncommon for a man to have a few wives..Where it mentions a decon having one wife is a literal statement because some had more then one wife back then. Except for fornication dealing with divorce. Mathew 19:9 And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery. As for it being an abomination to take your spouse back again after they have been with another it is in one of the smaller books of the Bible. Right now I can’t think of a word that goes with the verse to find it.
Marc Jackson So you built your doctrine on a single verse – OK Jesus speaks similar words in Matthew 5:32:“I say to you that anyone who divorces his wife, except on the ground of unchastity, causes her to commit adultery; and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.”
Melvin Shomo Troy Day is this act an unpardonable sin.Can you prove where it will send a person to hell.Then surely King David is in hell right now
Marc Jackson Melvin Shomo  I have not made any statements to prove Just asking you a few questions
Melvin Shomo How about a couple that is together that have been married for the forth time in both their lives.. Both find new life in Christ. Are they supposed to put one another away now to make a certain church feel better about their doctrines.The woman at the well is a prime example concerning the Grace of God and forgiveness through Christ our Lord.Now if a Christian goes against the Word of God in rebellion. Like a certain Minister that I know of. He could very well be weighed in the balances.
Junior Beasley Nope it’s not a unpardonable sin but it is still living in sin.
Melvin Shomo Michal’s new husband followed behind her crying while she was being taken away from him. Michal had hard feelings towards David afterwards. The scriptures does not tell of it but it shows in her attitude towards David
Jerome Herrick Weymouth What about a man I knew that been remarried 3 times after he got saved.
Melvin Shomo So tell me Junior Beasley if a person comes to Christ being married four times does he or she have to divorce to fulfill the whole law or have they been pardoned?
Melvin Shomo Jerome Herrick Weymouth that man will have to answer to God.My guess is he most likely uses foul language from time to time.
Melvin Shomo Here we are going to go back to where it said, For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Let’s take a man that has bipolar, or a chemical imbalance. How can we consider this person sane?This is where Grace comes in.The Pentecostal movement anymore is lacking in Deliverance to set the captives free,..
Junior Beasley No sir, that’s where healing and deliverance comes in…this man should be set free. That’s where Pentecost is lacking.
Melvin Shomo As we grow in the Lord, the Lord gives more of himself to us. We then become accountable for what He has given us.  For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: Luke 12:48If a Christian willingly and deliberately forsakes the commandments of the Lord after he has given them much. They are weighed in the balances to see if they are truly found wanting..
Marc Jackson http://www.christianitytoday.com/…/bill-hybels…
Melvin Shomo Troy Day we had a youth Pastor in our area that fell in love with then 15 year old, it wasn’t exposed until she was 16.He had three kids and was going to try and marry this sixteen year old after he divorced his wife. His wife brought it to the attention of the main Pastor that then called the authorities. The youth Pastor is now in prison. To me this is where the Gifts of the Holy Spirit should be encouraged by all church members to desire after, especially the gift of Prophesy that reveals the secrets of men’s hearts.The way I understand it this affair with this youth Pastor went on for a little over a year
Jerome Herrick Weymouth Melvin Shomo yes he did when he was alive.
Jerome Herrick Weymouth Melvin Shomo  see what adultery does for you.
Link Hudson The Bible talks about not accepting back a remarried and redivorced or widowed spouse not a regular adultress spouse. Of course if there were a death penalty for adultery there might be fewer cases where this applies.
Melvin Shomo Link just look at King David and how God had used him to show forth his Mercy and Grace. We have people today condemning those that are remarried by saying that the Grace and forgiveness of God was better under the Old Covenant then it is under the New Covenant.Christ said that he didn’t come to change the law, but to fulfill the law. Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree
Melvin Shomo King David was wrong for taking his ex-wife Michal back after she had been with another man. David was wrong when he had lusted after Bathsheba, and then had taken her as his own. Once you mess up you can’t undo the wrong, or you only make matters worse. You can only ask for forgiveness with a a repentive heart and go on with your life. Today there are all sourts coming to Christ that had done much worse then what King David had done.The Assemblies of God had had it for years where there decons have only been married one time.I have seen remaried people in love with the Lord more then the decons with one wife.And they know the Word of God so much more.And as the scripture has said those who have been forgiven of much, love even more.  The Assemblies where I attend has lifted the one spouse rule. Which they all should. Back in the Apostles day it was a common practice to have more then one wife. And many came to Christ that had more then one wife.
Don Watson All of these have strong support in the Bible. DEW
Ricky Grimsley The point of the poll was to ask what option had the weakest biblical support. The bottom three are explicitly taught. We could all make the case for abstinence of alcohol but we all know deep down it ain’t required or the Bible would just say that. When it comes to tithes you guys really have to hermeneutical gymnastics. You don’t use the same formula to get the other doctrines you live by. Just be honest with yourselves. Quit begging and guilting people to give.
Jerome Herrick Weymouth Folks hollering about alcohol, IGnor “be sober” scriptures which according to some means “Be free from the influence”
Ricky Grimsley I don’t even drink. I just use the Bible correctly.
Melvin Shomo Concerning AlcoholIt all depends on how the one that is supposed to be a reflection of Christ conducts thenselves. Do they choose to be Holy as he is Holy, or do they choose to be just like the rest of the world.  Woe unto him that giveth his neighbour drink, that puttest thy bottle to him, and makest him drunken also, that thou mayest look on their nakedness! Thou art filled with shame for glory: drink thou also, and let thy foreskin be uncovered: the cup of the LORD’s right hand shall be turned unto thee, and shameful spewing shall be on thy glory. Habakkuk 2:15-16
Marc Jackson Ricky your using the Bible has little Biblical support 🙂

      A big problem is the fear of GOD is gone, who told you that your quote. “repentance and turning away from sin, as a condition of saving faith/justification/ being born again/ regeneration has the weakest Biblical support”. The HOLY Scriptures never said what you said. Again denominations straight from hell. JESUS said obey my commandments if you love me. No love from your quote.

      Philip Williams Repentance is a fruit of believing, for believers (and compulsory for believers to earn rewards in the Millennium); not a condition of believing for unbelievers.

      Philip Williams Acts 26:20. Paul then defines the geographical sphere of his activity. His stress on “works befitting repentance” emphasizes God’s concern for righteousness. He always wants everyone—whether believers or unbelievers—to do right and grants no one (not even non-believers) permission to sin. The fact that people do not always do the right thing points out their need for forgiveness—one that only comes about by faith in Christ (rather than by good works). In this way salvation comes by faith alone (without any works whatsoever) and yet God, as loving and righteous, still desires right behavior from everyone.

      Philip Williams Acts 2:38 Repentance is PREPARATION for Palestine Jews to believe; not CONDITION of believing. Repentance provided the answer to their dilemma. They needed to reestablish their relationship with the Messiah they had just believed in. Peter does not here require additional conditions for eternal life. Belief in Jesus counts as the singular condition for guaranteed eternal life in both the OT and the NT. Apparently in the case of those who had had the privilege of seeing Jesus’ earthly ministry (cf. v 22), and yet disbelieved both Him and John (cf. Luke 7:31-35), God required a public identification with Jesus by baptism (and a corresponding rescinding of participation in the sin of that generation). Much like the way God requires confession of sins in order for Christians to maintain and enjoy fellowship with Him, in these unique cases God required repentance and baptism for the initiation of the Christian life.
      The Gentile Cornelius and those in his household who believed received the Holy Spirit before their baptism (10:43-48; 11:15-18). Palestinian Jews, however, believed in Jesus and received eternal life before receiving the Holy Spirit (2:37-39). The initial Samaritans who believed—after the Crucifixion—also received the Holy Spirit after their baptism as well as the laying on of hands by the apostles Peter and John (cf. 8:14-17). Repentance, although required for fellowship, did not constitute a condition for eternal life, since Peter recommended it to believers in Jesus already. Likewise, baptism was not a condition for eternal life.

      Philip Williams Matthew 4:17 Jesus’ message, “Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand,” is the same message John had preached regarding the imminent coming of God’s earthly kingdom as foretold in the OT (3:2). Israel’s response would determine whether that kingdom would come. Though their response was one of rejection, the kingdom offer made by Jesus was a genuine offer. Preparation for Ko G, not condition of believing in Jesus as personal Savior.

      Philip Williams Acts 17:30 Paul explains that God did not immediately judge the Gentiles (though He retained His standards of righteousness). Furthermore the apostle said their religious notions were expressions of ignorance. Now, however, God commanded “all men everywhere to repent.” The repentance here refers to forsaking the polytheistic and idolatrous pagan notions of God and seeking a vital and real relationship with the true God. The message here mirrors what Paul and Barnabas exhorted the idolatrous worshipers at Lystra to do (cf. 14:15). While this is not a condition of eternal life, the unbeliever who repents places himself in the proper sphere to understand the saving message (cf. v 27; 10:35).

    GOD, who is JESUS gave us the HOLY SCRIPTURES, to obey them. We all should understand the Scriptures as HE JESUS wrote them, Not to have a different theology or opinions. JESUS said on this rock HE JESUS made the NT church. So we should believe the same, obey Acts 2:38 the same so on so forth. GOD has the only true doctrine. Denominations have their way the doctrine of men. which is the devil’s way.

      Nelson Banuchi Mark 1:14-15 Repentance is PREPARATION for Palestine Jews to believe; not CONDITION of believing.

      The command to “repent and believe in the gospel” can be understood in three ways.

      First, it might be a command to turn from one’s sins and believe the saving message in order to have eternal life. However, the gospel here is the gospel (good news) that the kingdom of God has drawn near (v 14).

      Second, repentance might be understood as a synonym of faith. To change one’s mind about Christ is to believe in Him. Therefore in this change-of-mind view Jesus is saying, “Change your mind, that is, believe the gospel.” However, the gospel of the kingdom of God is not the message of John 3:16 or Eph 2:8-9. And in order for the kingdom to come for Israel, national repentance had to occur. Repentance, while always having a change of mind aspect to it, concerns a decision to turn from one’s sins (cf. Mark 1:3-5).

      Third, and preferable, is the view that Jesus, like His forerunner (cf. Mark 1:4-5), is calling the nation to turn from their sins and to believe the good news that He is the Messiah who is offering that generation the long-awaited kingdom.

      Nelson Banuchi Luke 13:5; Luke 13:6 Repentance is a fruit of believing, for believers; not a condition of believing for unbelievers. Jesus affirms that their sin did not exceed that of others in Jerusalem despite a tower falling on them and killing them. He then repeats the warning of v 3. Both true-to-life illustrations make the same point: persistence in sin leads to physical death. In the Jewish War of 66-70 some would die from directly inflicted wounds and others would perish by accident.

      13:6. A parable highlighting God’s mercy to Israel follows the warning about repentance. This parable focuses on the positive results or fruit (of repentance) that God expected from the “fig tree,” a figure for the nation of Israel. The activity of “seeking fruit” refers to God’s first century visitation to Israel to fulfill His promises to them.

      RichardAnna Boyce Let me just say, it seems you request is confusing as I took it – “repentance and turning away from sin, is a CONDITION of saving faith/justification/ being born again/ regeneration” – to mean you were asking where in the Bible repentance is the condition for salvation, not where is repentance a condition for faith.

      Let me quickly say, repentance is neither a condition for faith nor a fruit of faith, but an aspect and characteristic (not a synonym) of faith; genuine repentance is faith at work. Admittedly, one can perform an act of repentance without faith, although it can be defined more as remorse rather than repentance; however, one cannot exercise genuine faith without repentance, for repentance necessarily involves a change in thinking and behavior from self-pursuits to pursuing God in Christ.

      Time does not allow me to further elaborate.

No more celebrating christmas, trunk or treat, valentines day, Etc. No more baal worship or for some of you pagan holidays. No one can serve baal the devil and JESUS, it is one or the other. You preach dresses or skirts down to the feet, long sleeves to the hand. For men lose fitting pants or slacks long sleeve shirt or long sleeve polo shirt even long sleeve T-shirts. No jewelry on men or women No makeup. No second or third spouse if the first one still is alive. I am stopping here there is much more. If you say that is being a legalist, you are in a devil’s church. A legalist is someone that does not obey the commandment of our LORD JESUS.

      The word of God teaches us that bare arms and bare legs is nakedness;

      Our Lord Jesus was clothed with a garments that went down to his feet [Rev 1:13 a]

      “And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot,”

      Again: Why is it, that in some Apostolic assemblies they teach that the men and women are to wear long sleeves and cover their arms, like the bible teaches in [Gen. 3:21];

      That is good modesty teaching, yet the women are wearing mini skirts, with their bare legs, and [Isa. 47:1-3] teaches us that bare legs is nakedness;

      Do men wear shorts to church? Why the double standard?

      Women’s dresses and skirts are meant to be long and relatively spacious, not so tight as to hinder their manner of walking [Isa. 3:16] and are essential for feminine modesty and dignity:

      Isa 3:16 Moreover the Lord saith, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched forth necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing [H2952] as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet:

      H2952 apparently to trip (with short steps) coquettishly: – mince.

      The same word is used to describe the robes of the priests, which reached to the foot.

      Meaning to clothe; the shoulder (proper, that is, upper end of the arm; as being the spot where the garments hang); figuratively side piece or lateral projection or anything: – [arm], corner, shoulder (-piece), side, undersetter.

      Isa 47:1 Come down, and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon, sit on the ground: there is no throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for thou shalt no more be called tender and delicate.

      Isa 47:3 Thy nakedness shall be uncovered, yea, thy shame shall be seen: I will take vengeance, and I will not meet thee as a man.

      “make bare the leg, uncover the thigh” [AND YOU SAY: “WELL MY THIGH IS [NOT] UNCOVERED]”

    9 And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.

    Romans 7:3 (KJV)
    3 So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man.

    Hebrews 13:4 (KJV)
    4 Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.

    Here is an example in the book, chapter, and verse on women preachers, women bishops, deaconess, all lie from hell.
    1 Timothy 3:1-5 (KJV)
    3 This is a true saying, if a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.

    2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;

    3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;

    4 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;

    5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)

    John 3:32-34 (KJV)
    32 And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony.

    33 He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true.

    34 For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.

    1 Timothy 5:2 (KJV)
    2 The elder women as mothers; the younger as sisters, with all purity.

    1 Timothy 2:12-14 (KJV)
    12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.

    13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve.

    14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.

    1 Corinthians 11:3 (KJV)
    3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.

    Numbers 27:15-17 (KJV)
    15 And Moses spake unto the Lord, saying,

    16 Let the Lord, the God of the spirits of all flesh, set a man over the congregation,

    17 Which may go out before them, and which may go in before them, and which may lead them out, and which may bring them in; that the congregation of the Lord be not as sheep which have no shepherd.

    Isaiah 3:12 (KJV)
    12 As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.

    Isaiah 9:16-17 (KJV)
    16 For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed.

    17 Therefore the Lord shall have no joy in their young men, neither shall have mercy on their fatherless and widows: for every one is an hypocrite and an evildoer, and every mouth speaketh folly. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.

    Who are they allowed to teach…

    Titus 2:1-5 (KJV)
    2 But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine:

    2 That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience.

    3 The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;

    4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,

    5 To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

    NOTICE: *[HE PREACHED]
    Mar_1:39 And HE PREACHED in their synagogues throughout all Galilee, and cast out devils.
    Mar_2:2 And straightway many were gathered together, insomuch that there was no room to receive them, no, not so much as about the door: and HE PREACHED the word unto them.
    Luk_4:44 And HE PREACHED in the synagogues of Galilee.
    Act_8:40 But Philip was found at Azotus: and passing through HE PREACHED in all the cities, till he came to Caesarea.
    Act_9:20 And straightway HE PREACHED Christ in the synagogues, that he is the Son of God.
    Act_17:18 Then certain philosophers of the Epicureans, and of the Stoicks, encountered him. And some said, What will this babbler say? other some, He seemeth to be a setter forth of strange gods: because HE PREACHED unto them Jesus, and the resurrection.

    Philip Williams James 2:18-19 James anticipates his readers’ excuse by introducing the words of an imaginary objector. Such alleged objectors were a common stock-in-trade for writers on morals in James’s day, and here he employs this well-known literary foil. The entirety of vv 18-19 belong to this hypothetical speaker.
    The exact extent and meaning of the objector’s words have long been a problem to commentators. The NKJV follows a common understanding in its punctuation of vv 18-19. The words, “You have faith and I have works,” are enclosed in quotation marks by the NKJV and this signals that these words alone are taken as the words of an objector. (What they are an objection to has puzzled many commentators.) The remaining words of v 18 and those of v 19 are taken by the NKJV as the reply of James, though it is by no means clear how they answer the words attributed to the objector. But all punctuation in our English Bibles is the work of editors, since the original manuscript of James would probably have had little or none. But the text is only correctly understood when the entirety of vv 18-19 (starting with, You have faith…) is assigned to the objector and none of it assigned to James.
    In vv 18-19 the specific literary format James uses was familiar from the Greek diatribe, which was a learned and argumentative form of discourse. The form employed in vv 18-20 might be called the “objection/reply format.” Words such as James’s “but someone will say” (v 18) are used to introduce the objection and, when the objection has been stated, a sharp rejoinder is begun with words like James’s “but do you want to know, O foolish man” (v 20). This same format used by James also occurs in Rom 9:19-20 and 1 Cor 15:35-36. The view of many writers that James’s reply has to begin at v 18 b ignores the manifest structural signals of James’s text., These writers have failed to produce any comparable text in the relevant literature. This writer regards it as certain that the objector’s words extend to the end of v 19.
    But what does the objection mean? Since most Greek manuscripts read the word “by” (ek) in place of the familiar word “without” (chœris) in v 18, the reading “by” is preferred here. The objector’s statement may then be given as follows, retaining the Greek word order more exactly than does the NKJV:
    But someone will say: “You have faith and I have works. Show me your faith from [ek] your works, and I will show you, from [ek] my works, my faith. You believe that there is one God; you do well. The demons also believe, and tremble” (vv 18-19, author’s translation).
    The argument which these words express appears to be a reductio ad absurdum (reducing someone’s claims to absurdity). It is heavy with irony. “It is absurd,” says the objector, “to see a close connection between faith and works. For the sake of argument, let’s say you have faith and I have works. Let’s start there. You can no more start with what you believe and show it to me in your works, than I can start with my works and demonstrate what it is that I believe.” The objector is confident that both tasks are impossible. The impossibility of showing one’s faith from one’s works is now demonstrated (so the objector thinks) by this illustration: “Men and demons both believe the same truth (that there is one God), but their faith does not produce the same response. Although this article of faith may move a human being to ‘do well,’ it never moves the demons to ‘do well.’ All they can do is tremble. Faith and works, therefore, have no built-in connection at all. The same creed may produce entirely different kinds of conduct. Faith cannot be made visible in works!” With this supposedly unanswerable claim, the objector rests his case.
    No doubt James and his readers had heard this argument before. It was precisely the kind of defensive approach people might take when their orthodoxy was not supported by good deeds. They might say, “Faith and works are not really related to each other in the way you say they are, James. So don’t criticize the vitality of my faith because I don’t do such and such a thing.”

    Philip Williams 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 Paul points the Corinthians to fact that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God. The word unrighteous has no definite article in the Greek, unlike v 1 where the same word appears. This serves to emphasize character rather than position. It can describe both believer and unbeliever who lack godly character. Unbelievers will neither inherit nor enter the kingdom. Unrighteous believers will enter but not inherit.

    Some think Paul is referring to believers who because of the practice of unrighteous deeds lose their salvation. Others say it is referring to those who prove they were never true believers in the first place. Both positions equate inheriting the kingdom of God with entering God’s kingdom. However, in the near context Paul is talking to believers who would suffer loss at the Bema (cf. 3:13-15), but not the impossible loss of eternal salvation. They have eternal life that can never be lost.

    Yet these believers will not inherit the kingdom of God because of their practice of unrighteousness. The word inherit (kl¢ronomeœ) is often used in the OT to express the wider meaning of entering into full possession of a family inheritance. In other words inheriting the kingdom of God is not equivalent to entering God’s kingdom. To inherit simply means to possess and it includes ruling with Christ (cf. 1 Cor 4:8; 2 Tim 2:12). Both the OT and NT illustrate the possibility that some believers may lose their inheritance (Gen 22:15-18; 27:38-40; 2 Tim 2:12; Heb 12:16-17). Therefore Paul informs the Corinthians that they could renounce their inheritance privilege by their sinful lifestyles. They could live in the future kingdom but not possess it if they continued to live in their sins.

    He told them not to be deceived about those who are fornicators (a general term describing one who practices sexual immorality), idolaters (idolatry is the committing of unlawful deeds related to an idol), adulterers (sexual sins related to marriage), homosexuals (men who allow themselves to be misused homosexually), sodomites (male homosexuals). Neither should they be deceived concerning those who practice sins against others: thieves, covetous, drunkards, revilers, extortioners. Believers who fail to live for God will not possess the kingdom of God.
