Re: How do you experience the Cross?

Actually, there is more than enough evidence that Lee considered himself God's oracle on earth way back to the early days in Taiwan. He was hiring and firing elders and even...

Re: Does the Bible say we are Sinners?

Re: "Church" is not in the Bible!

Maybe you can find the original Aramaic in the same place where the original papyrus manuscripts containing the Greek word ekklesia? Good luck.:)

Re: "Church" is not in the Bible!

Sons to Glory! Why are you substituting the word "lodoth" for your preferred word of "ekklesia"? Are you denying that Jesus spoke these words in Aramaic? Why are you skipping ahead and going with the...

Re: Does the Bible say we are Sinners?

I don't think I could do better than Raptor here. If we sin, it's because we are a sinner.

If we repent of our sins and believe in the Lord Jesus, that he died for our sins and rose again on the...

Re: "Church" is not in the Bible!

This is akin to saying "Presbyteros sure didn't mean elder back in the first century!" Well, it most certainly did, just as church is the English equivalent to the Greek Ekklesia. The fact that this...
