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.
Hi Archangel Thyos,
I'm not at the point where I would call myself a Christian, although I do believe in Jesus and I do feel he sits at the right hand of God - I just don't know what that really means. My advise to you, if you want it, is to spend time in prayer. Ask Jesus what He wants of you. Focus on Him.
If you are outside on a dark night and all you see is a light in the distance then walk towards the light. Don't wrap yourself in fear of what may or may not be in the dark.
Run. God is calling you out of the corrupt episcopalian institution. You will meet a genuine follower of Christ who will encourage you to fellowship with those who edify one another in love and in the truth of God's word without all the pagan trappings that quench these.
Hi War12! Thanks for your reply and comments! It's my understanding that the "old man" (sin nature) being crucified means that it is only being restrained, not eradicated or killed. We are dead to it (Rom 6:2, 11) but it is not dead to us and ever opposes us but to no avail because the believer's death in Christ to it separates him from its guilt (Rom 8:1) and "dominion" (Rom 6:14), not its presence, not its effects (Rom 7:14-25).
Concerning the "flesh," in the NT it is (nearly always) in reference to the sin nature (old man). The body (flesh and bone) itself of a believer is holy and is the temple of God (1 Cor 6:19). The sin is in the nature, not the body.
