This could be all manners of things, that club members might be interested in, resources, other Bible things to do, or perhaps topics we want to discuss in non-combative terms. We'll just have to see what develops.
Sorry, I never said anything about abandoning God's Word. Just that God lets us have original thoughts and choose a personalized doctrine, as long as it does not conflict with the Spirit of Jesus Christ.
"One man regards a certain day above the others, while someone else considers every day alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind." Romans 14:5
"Accept other believers who are weak in faith, and don’t argue with them about what they think is right or wrong." Romans 14:1
"Now our knowledge is partial and incomplete, and even the gift of prophecy reveals only part of the whole picture!" 1 Corinthians 13:9
"But whoever has doubts is condemned if they eat, because their eating is not from faith; and everything that does not come from faith is sin." Romans 14:23
The Bible is the standard by which I discern all things.
My issue is the assumption that this is coming from a heart of pride or impure motives. Paul says he eagerly awaits his new body. Is he being proud in tbis moment? No. He is rejoicing in a future event. I am merely doing the same thing. Do you I honestly think I feel like deity? I'm powerless in this old tent as the Word describes our body. I am simply stating a future event when we will, In Christ, sit on His throne and rule and reign with Him.
A blaring truth is that Judas never called Jesus LORD. He called him rabbi. All the other apostles did call Jesus LORD . Judas was never enlightened by the Holy Spirit. Judas name was NEVER in the Book Of Life.
SO then put the emphasis ON CHRIST by whom we counted worthy . Not ON US , PUT IT ON HIM . this is what I am trying to show you . WE aint worthy of anything but death,
WE only counted worthy of eternal life , IN CHRIST , BY the grace of GOD . so lets rather focus ON US PLACING those crowns at HIS FEET , and not on HIS THRONE .
I already KNOW where we are seated and will be seated . The facts I don't debate , ITS WHERE your FOCUS is I debate . GET it back on CHRIST ONLY
as one who we will KNEEL before HIS THRONE on HIS DAY .
But we know this . We should focus rather on living holy BY the SPIRIT and being humble and simply focusing on correction . and things that build the body up .
The flesh always wants the spot light , we need to remember the words OF our LORD . He sure did give them and us all the power and promises
BUT made sure to remind TO NOT let that be what we rejoice in , but rather that we are simply sinners saved and changed by grace and our names are wrote above .
So let us focus on that . You do need to be careful . I know you may not realize that , YET , but I am telling you we must simply focus on the fact our names are wrote above
WHILE we operate in whatever gift HE has given us . Don't make the focus or emphasis on what we have received , BE THANKFUL YES , but put the gift to work
TO BUILD up the people . cause I see a serious amount of falsehoods getting taught , BETTER we correct those and do all by the pattern CHRIST and the apostels set .
And their man emphasis , was on be not highminded but fear , always correcting and always reminding . We aint got those crowns yet ,
THOSE be given ON HIS DAY .
