  1. Kingdom has come, not the Christ

    Yes, this is one such understanding of v.28
  2. Kingdom has come, not the Christ

    Matthew 16: 27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works. 28 Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom. I think, verse 27 refers to His second coming, and v.28 refers to the event that happened on the day of Pentecost. So, verse 28 has already occurred whereas v.27 is yet to occur.
  3. What should someone who remarried do?

    Specifically from the NT point of view, setting completely for God's work excludes marriage. Otherwise, you are conveniently ignoring the call of Jesus: Luke 14:26 "If anyone comes to Me, and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be My disciple. 27 "Whoever does not carry his own cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple.
  4. What should someone who remarried do?

    Please define 'honor' also. Do you think it is same as 'holy'? Yes, I am married for nearly 48 years to same lady! 1 Corinthians 7:32 But I want you to be free from concern. One who is unmarried is concerned about the things of the Lord, how he may please the Lord; 33 but one who is married is concerned about the things of the world, how he may please his wife, 34 and his interests are divided. The woman who is unmarried, and the virgin, is concerned about the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and spirit; but one who is married is concerned about the things of the world, how she may please her husband. Hope you understand the various of types of love. Agape love is holy
  5. What should someone who remarried do?

    Yes, marriage is not holy but honorable. The holy is not the same as honor. Also yes, Peter might have made arrangements for his wife's sustenance. I am not forbidding marriage.
  6. What should someone who remarried do?

    You have answered your question yourself. Bible says marriage is honorable, not holy in clear cut terms without any ambiguity. Let us not interpret by extrapolation. It is important to consider KJV for 1 Corinthians 9:5.
  7. What should someone who remarried do?

    Please read 1 Corinthians chapter 7 carefully again, especially considering the earnest desire of Paul in verse 1, 6 and 9. Do you think Peter used to take Sabbatical leave one day in every week to be with his wife during the earthly ministry of Jesus? Did he not leave all including his wife (not of course with a divorce) in accordance with the wish of Jesus in Luke 14:26?
  8. What should someone who remarried do?

    That is for married people and for those who are weak and prefer to enter into a wedlock. Paul preferred celibacy over marriage. Peter left his wife to follow Christ. Jesus never married.
  9. What should someone who remarried do?

    The OT standards in letter are superseded by higher spiritual standards of the NT.
  10. What should someone who remarried do?

    Basically according to the NT, marriage is not holy, rather it is celibacy that is holy. No matter how one squeezes the texts and try to defend manly actions, they are, from spiritual point of view, worthless!
  11. The Deception Of Constantine

    Let us not put blame totally on Constantine. After all, he was after power. So he instigated many theories that were against the truth by offering recognition and power to bishops who succumbed to his lure.
  12. Zionism = Nazism?? WHAT??????

    We are expected to love the enemies for their transformation. Not to be happy with their adamant stand all these years. They did not listen to Jesus. We don't expect much from our side too.
  13. Zionism = Nazism?? WHAT??????

    Do you think anti-Christ Jewish people should be treated superior to others with the advent of Christianity? No bias as far as evangelism is concerned whether Jew or Gentile. If Jews continue remain blind and deaf, then it is their funeral. Just God will not show any favors.
  14. Zionism = Nazism?? WHAT??????

    One need not require Jerusalem to find Jesus. He is the way, life and truth. Only biased theology speaks otherwise. The greatest obstacle to evangelism of Jewish is claiming Jesus as God. It applies to Muslims too.
  15. Zionism = Nazism?? WHAT??????

    Agreed. We love for their transformation, not holding on to the same stance.
