Christian Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

    Why We Can’t Unhitch from the Old Testament

    Why are you quoting an Old Testament verse of Joel? Did you not read and understand that you are blinded in the reading of the Old Testament(2 Corinthians 3:14)? Then why are you still quoting it? Yes. the New Covenant was instituted when our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ was crucified, buried and rose again. If you do not understand this, then you do not know, or have never seen Christ(1 John 3:6 KJV). You should study to see who God really is. Actually, it is very simple what was accomplished at the cross- If there is no law then there is no sin...Period, end of the sentence, it is finished. "Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.".Romans 6:18-23(KJV) Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. 1 John 3:9(KJV) So, who is born of God- everyone(study to show thyself approved)!. You may find the answer in the same epistle.

    Why We Can’t Unhitch from the Old Testament

    Yes, it does refer to the laws of Moses. For the law was given by Moses(in whom you trust)-John 1:17(KJV) "For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.". You and everyone else are also blinded in the reading of the Old Testament.- 2 Corinthians 3:13-15(KJV)13 "And not as Moses, which put a veil over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished: 14 But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ.15 But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart." There is a reason why you and many others have such a difficult time understanding and wrestle with the word of God. Jesus Christ did do away with the Old Testament and established the New Testament- Hebrews 10:9(KJV) "Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second." This is the New Covenant(New Testament)-Hebrews 10:16-17(KJV) "16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; 17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more." God does forget(He remembers no more) where we do not sometimes. Even in the verse that you quoted it's said that he did away with the Old Testament-Hebrews 8:13(KJV) " In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away." You see it and read it, but you do not believe it. And yes, it has all been fulfilled. Mark 1:15(KJV) " And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel." Luke 16:16(KJV) "The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it."

    Why We Can’t Unhitch from the Old Testament

    The Old Testament has been done away with, for we are not under the law of the Old Testament, but the grace of the New Testament. Romans 6;14 KJV- " For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law but under grace." You are also blinded in the reading of the Old Testament- 2 Corinthians 3:13-15 King James Version (KJV) 13 And not as Moses, which put a veil over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished: 14 But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ. 15 But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart. For the law was given by Moses(in whom you trust). John 1:17 King James Version (KJV) "For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ." Jesus Christ also abolished(formally put an end to (a system, practice, or institution) the law of commandments. Ephesians 2:15 King James Version (KJV) "Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;" Jesus Christ also blotted them out Colossians 2:14-15 King James Version (KJV)-"Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;" There is also a disannulling of the commandments-Hebrews 7:18 King James Version (KJV) "For there is verily a disannulling of the commandment going before for the weakness and unprofitableness thereof."

    Gospel of Batholomew and Apocrypha

    That was not a personal attack, just a question that one should ask their self. For if one is a sinner they have never seen nor known Christ- 1 John 3:6 that they are of the devil- 1 John 3:8. Sinners are self condemned- Titus 3:11.

    Gospel of Batholomew and Apocrypha

    Brother, are you a sinner? If you are then that will answer why you have such a hard time understanding God's word.

    Gospel of Batholomew and Apocrypha

    Just because a book is not in the canon, does not mean that it is not scriptural, or the information therein is not useful to further your understanding of God. "And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written." John 21:25 KJV. How many books were in the King James Version of the Bible prior to the 1880's (83), how many there today(66). Do you think they were taken out to keep us ignorant? Here is a list of the books that were taken out of the canon in the 1880's; Tobit; Judith; 1/2/3/4 Maccabees; Additions to Ester; 1/2 Esdras(Ezra); Letter of Jeremiah; Prayer of Azariah and the Song of the three Jews; Susanna; Bel and the Dragon; Prayer of Manasseh; Psalm 151; Wisdom of Solomon; Sirach(Ecclesiasticus), and Baruch. Don't worry I have a 1854 King James Version of the Bible with these now so called Apocrypha books in it. Yes, Beliar/Belial is the name of the anti-Christ, you may find the name in 2 Corinthians 6:15 (or Christ with anti-Christ, or a believer with an unbeliever), and Moses is the man of sin. If you want an example of an pseudepigraphal book in the canon look to Romans. Still, the name of the anti-Christ is in the NT, so is: "now that the dead are raised", "the gospel which ye have heard and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven", "In the last day", "the graves where opened"; "and he died for ALL"; Yeah, I have nothing, but the inspired word of God to back up my claims. "For he is before all things and by him all things consist". Have a blessed day, brother.

    Study for yourself. Read the Gospel of Bartholomew and second Corinthians.

    Gospel of Batholomew and Apocrypha

    Okay, remain ignorant. That still does not change the fact that the name of the anti-Christ is in the NT, now does it?
  10. RedneckOne

    Gospel of Batholomew and Apocrypha

    You can find it by reading the Gospel of Bartholomew and then reading 2 Corinthians. Study to show thyself approved, brother.

    Hear that sound?

    LOL: have you not seen all of the warnings: that this product has been known to cause cancer in the state of California. Have a blessed day, brother.

    Destiny?

    Yeah, it can be used to say anything you want it to say, until you take the whole gospel of the NT into consideration. Which Tertius summed up in the verse of Romans 5:18. Which the KJV tells us: "Therefore by the offense of one(Adam) judgement came upon all men to condemnation, even so by the righteousness of one(Jesus Christ) the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life." Pretty simple in that what Adam had done in the garden of Eden, Jesus Christ undone on the cross at Calvary; this verse is very hard to take out of context. Another verse that is hard to take out of context would be Hebrews 10:10 which states(KJV): "By the which will(of God) we are sanctified(made Holy) through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all." Have a blessed day, brother.
