    Need your prayers. Just an ear to hear.

    Also remember it isn't that you could or need to be above human but that God sees you as more than just a mere body of flesh. And even better through His Holy Spirit we can be renewed and tap into the same mind of Jesus and the Father as the Spirit knows the mind of God. We can begin to see...

    WHY DO WE HAVE SO MANY BIBLE TRANSLATIONS?

    We study the interlinear and compare and contrast the methods used to interpret the verse. I prepared this for a group that I lead and teach so that they may understand the foundation to translations. To give them the basics to trust their Bible or dig deeper to decide which translation or...

    WHY DO WE HAVE SO MANY BIBLE TRANSLATIONS?

    I actually see multiple translations as a good thing, as in like a checks and balances type of deal. Good works will be promoted by scholars and the people who know the Word, while other translations will be spoken against and left to gather dust. In this freedom, we have an environment that...

    WHY DO WE HAVE SO MANY BIBLE TRANSLATIONS?

    WHY DO WE HAVE SO MANY BIBLE TRANSLATIONS? Why are there so many Bible translations, and which is the best? [2:43] Old Testament: The Old Testament is less debated due to the extreme painstaking care of the Hebrew Scribes and the Hebrew people to protect their Holy Scriptures. Most, if...

    Contradiction or Harmony?

    Are prophecies also laws? Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets. He came not to abolish the law or the Prophets, but to fulfill. So Paul's abolish had to be speaking to the hostility between Jew, Gentile, and the inner human nature that could never keep the whole law.

    Do you consider the burden of keeping the law a hostility between human nature and what the laws require in perfection?

    Contradiction or Harmony?

    Yes there was hostility, verse 15 explains this, Ephesians 2:15-16 ESV 15 by abolishing the law of commandments expressed in ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace, 16 and might reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross, thereby...

    Contradiction or Harmony?

    Judicially guilty within the Jewish government but the moral laws were just as active then as they are now. They were still guilty of lusting with one's eyes as a sin even before Jesus spoke it. But yes I agree there is a law written in our hearts as to why they are called thought sins. The...

    Contradiction or Harmony?

    I'm asking a question with no anterior motive. So please explain. I believe I have an understanding but I like to see what others believe.

    Contradiction or Harmony?

    I have heard it put this way, Paul is saying that the hostility to the law is what was abolished. Jesus fulfilled the law, set us free, the hostility has been abolished and we are now free to learn from God's holy commands without the hostility and burden it once was. You agree? Or is there...

    Church planting?

    Paul literally planted many churches including putting Timothy in charge of one. Discipleship carries the implication to multiply. If people multiply they grow beyond the walls of a home. A church should be like a hospital for the sinners where evangelism should be like the ambulance. Once we...

    Contradiction or Harmony?

    Is this a contradiction? Or in context do we have harmony? Matthew 5:17-18 ESV 17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18 For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will...

    Darkness shall not prevail

    I found out today the pastor friend I have met with consistently for years has been cheating on his wife for at least a year. It really testifies that we all should be on guard as any one of us could fall or turn to sin if we are not 24/7 diligently on guard. I believe he has cut ties with me...

    Darkness shall not prevail

    Thank you, that was a very euphoric place. I felt a sense of great peace and wish I could go back to spend time in prayer and meditation alone.
