Re: Finding Biblical Context For Women 'Are More Easily Deceived'

Bushnell believes the verses should be punctuated and translated as follows: (She's a Greek and Hebrew scholar so she's probably qualified!)

Re: Finding Biblical Context For Women 'Are More Easily Deceived'

Here is what Witness Lee had to say about Rahab in the life study of Matthew #3:
K. Rahab
We proceed to Rahab (v. 5). Rahab was a harlot in Jericho (Josh. 2:1), a place cursed by God for eternity....

Re: The main problem with the LC

To me, the "main problem" with the Local Church is ignoring what Jesus said about "the church". Firstly, he didn't say "the church". He said "my church".

Matt. 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That...

Re: Christ Living through His Believers as the Best ____?

Nothing wrong with your comment. Maybe grammatically “Christ in me helps me to be the best husband” is a bit clearer, but that’s a stretch. I think you’re being “snookered”.

I’ve noticed lately a...

Trapped,

This also is the gospel:

Re: The Shunning

For me, it wasn’t so personal as what you’ve described. “Things” actually got a little better after a period of time, but it was never the same. I could never trust these people again. Eventually I...

Re: A Corona Virus Great Awakening?

You implied. Regardless of your wordsmithing, you implied that I followed John Piper. I don’t. You’re free to accept this or not.

Re: A Corona Virus Great Awakening?

You didn’t “assume”. You implied. And as I said, I made no lateral moves to John Piper.



So I’ll repeat my point: Look up! Wake up! We don’t know. We probably shouldn’t take comfort in...

Re: A Corona Virus Great Awakening?

StG/JoS,

Here’s what I have to say:

I don’t follow Piper, never have, and I don’t know enough about him to have an opinion. My point wasn’t Piper.
Jo S: I have made no such “lateral move” to...

Re: Lack of An Increase

The scary part would be to find yourself opposing what God himself is doing.

Acts 5:39 but if it is of God, you will not be able to overthrow them. You might even be found opposing God!” So they...

Re: A Corona Virus Great Awakening?

Ohio,

Yep. Seems pretty simple to me. Isn’t the purpose of a “great awakening” to first: WAKE UP??

No one knows the truth of what God is, or isn’t, doing in 2020. Speculate, explain, minimize,...

Listen to your critics. The fruit doesn't lie.

An inquiry into the lack of increase in ANY assembly of God's people should begin here:
Matt. 7:20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

And there's this:
