Re: Poor poor Christianity

What you posted does not reflect the whole of Lee's teachings on the subject. I recall a specific life study or was it a training or conference where it was mentioned about how God has used...

Re: Christ or faith the Savior?

2 Cor 11:4 is in contradiction with 1 Cor 8:6 only if 2 Cor 11:4 means there is more than one Jesus. The only way to resolve this contradiction is to re-interpret 2 Cor 11:4 or 1 Cor 8:6, and I...

Re: Judas Iscariot - Brings salvation to the world?

I disagree. Jesus could still have gone to the cross without Judas. All Judas did was make it easier for them to arrest him. Judas did not provide any testimony about Jesus's crimes for conviction,...

Re: Poor poor Christianity

The true religion established by Christ was called "the way". The Christianity that was started in the 2nd century adopted many pagan practices such as Easter. Hence the word "Catholic" means "the...

Re: Christ or faith the Savior?

Scripture does not say there are many Jesus's. It says there is only one:

1 Cor 8:6 But we know that there is only one God, the Father, who created everything, and we live for him. And there is...

Re: Christ or faith the Savior?

What else could you have meant other than calling in the recovery is chanting because of one example you gave. If you meant to say "calling may be chanting if it is done vainly" why not just say that?

Re: Making Guns safe for society

What about ZNP arent they assertive too?

How so? I am familiar with tax, insurance and gun laws. I know that insurance does not cover intentional or criminal acts which is why this is unworkable...

Re: Christ or faith the Savior?

If you look back a few you were the one who used one instance of calling to discredit the practice of calling on the name of the Lord.

Re: Christ or faith the Savior?

You must be speaking from personal experience re:vain prayer. If it is vain...who is being vain if not yourself? No one forced you to pray vainly.

Re: Christ or faith the Savior?

The difference? We call on the name of the Lord Jesus. They don't. Perhaps the name of Jesus is 'just another name' like Hare Krishna to you.

You seem to have a lot of manmade rules about...

Re: Poor poor Christianity

Christianity did not begin until the second century. Until that time it was called "the way". It went from being "the Way", to "Catholic" meaning Universal or all-embracing of pagan things and...

Obviously he told us that so we could judge who is vain babbling and who isn't. He certainly could not have meant it for ourselves. Anyone who says that their calling on the Lord in the Recovery was...

Re: Poor poor Christianity

You are thinking about this too objectively. The focus of the recovery is not New Testament model but New Testament condition. There's a difference.

The recovery is needed for this time before...

Re: Poor poor Christianity

I disagree because the early church knew that the whole world needed to be evangelized before Christ returned (Matt 24:14). They were not merely waiting around for Christ to come back.

The early...

Re: Making Guns safe for society

What you propose with gun owners paying insurance to cover a school is really a tax or levy, not an insurance.

The difference is that when you buy car insurance that is for your car, not to cover...

Re: Judas Iscariot - Brings salvation to the world?

The key to understanding Judas and Christ is to understand the tribe of Dan and anti-Christ.

Christ chose each of his disciples, one from each tribe of Israel. Judas was chosen from the tribe of...

Re: Judas Iscariot - Brings salvation to the world?

The view says that Judas was the best disciple and friend of Jesus of all, as he enabled Christ to do God's perfect will. I guess Peter would have been the worst friend, as he tried to prevent Christ...

Re: Christ or faith the Savior?

How can you make a determination that it "was not prayer"? Technically any form of address to a divine higher power is a prayer, and the genuineness of it can only be determined by knowing their...

Re: Christ or faith the Savior?

What you disrespectfully call chanting is prayer, and could be considered an insult to everyone who prays by calling on the name of the Lord.

You are essentially denying prayer as a way to gain...

Re: Christ or faith the Savior?

But a point of this thread is not to do critical examination of those verses about demonic belief vs a Christian's belief. I even inferred to the difference when I wrote about "genuine faith".

Re: Christ or faith the Savior?

You said:

What you do is use one verse and then proceed your own interpretation without having another verse to support that view.

This is a false claim because in my first post I posted 3...

Re: Christ or faith the Savior?

I don't see how you can claim that I am not doing exegesis and you are, given that so far you have quoted only two verses. One in Luke and one in Romans. My posts are full of verses, particularly my...

Re: Latter Rain, Kingdom Now, & the Lord's Recovery

That is only one possible definition. The meaning is a more general one to take something illegally or without authority. It can be by force but doesn't have to be.

In your first paragraph you said "do proper exegesis rather than isolating a verse and making an entire argument from it " and then you proceeded to do the same with a single verse Luke 6:45 and then...

Re: Latter Rain, Kingdom Now, & the Lord's Recovery

The meaning of the word usurp is not "take by force", and so the rest of your assertions are also wrong which are based on this wrong meaning about force.

I know you don't like external references...
