  1. How are billions decived .

    Well, it is a good reminder in general, Neighbour, but it has nothing to do with the OP, which is about blindly BELIEVING and submitting to false doctrine. Unless you are promoting the false doctrine of infallibility here....which I don't think is your intent. (I hope?)
  2. How are billions decived .

    Amen....the devil counterfeits the true and we need to guard against throwing the baby out with the bathwater. We can only be at peace as far as it is possible with us. Notice who is most often not at peace with who. It is fleshly and carnal believers who are not at peace with and mistreat those who are following after the truth. We ourselves can do all we can in endeavouring to keep the unity of the spirit in the bond of peace, but we can't control what others do. We just must be careful not to artificially forge a false peace through compromise of the truth. It is the Lord Himself who is our unity by His Spirit......and except He build the house we labour in vain with hands of flesh.
  3. How are billions decived .

    Amen.....let the Spirit of Christ be our teacher and guide us into all truth. It is antichrist to trust in man.....because that is really letting a man or men take the place of Christ. This is why he said even now many antichrists have come, to try and draw the people away after themselves. The church began to "fall away" and move off the foundation as soon as wolves (antichrists) came in after Paul and the other apostles departed, because they were no longer here to deal with it. It culminated in the formation of the RCC under Constantine......which persecuted the true church which was not a visible organization but which was made up of scattered believers and groups whose unity was in the Spirit. The church has been under antichrist attack ever since it's beginnings, to one degree or another, and even the protestant evangelical churches retained an antichrist structure after leaving the Mother church, which fruit is ripening to the full today. All under the watch and rule of Almighty God because the gospel has really always been about the few who find the narrow way to life....and the many who persecute the few is also in His good purposes to refine and purify His true church. He is the Vinedresser who is constantly pruning away in His vineyard. The preposition anti/ante in the Greek means "in the place of" as well as being "against or opposed to" Christ.
  4. Rom 6:11

    Gideon is testifying and encouraging others about how the Lord wonderfully set him free.....and sharing the truth (scripture) that set him free. I don't know about your theology brother, there seem to be many on this board who don't believe God still does such things today........but I can testify also that I have seen the Lord work in such ways and have no problem at all in believing this testimony. That is just a normal day's work for God and the reason Jesus left us His Spirit. The bible says we overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony.......and testifying with your mouth what you believe in your heart is entirely biblical. The Lord never said to cease from doing that in case people take your testimony as having equal weight with the scriptures. Or that in doing so you are giving yourself some office. No, He says in His word that we are to testify. As well as to encourage and built one another up in the Lord generally. This brother is faithfully sharing the good news of what the Lord did in his life, as even the Lord commanded.
  5. Rom 6:11

    All the things that Jesus accomplished on the cross....are true and are imputed to us, praise and thanks be to God!! \o/ This is why even though we are not without fault we can come boldly to the throne of grace. But the thing is that now we also have a race to run in attaining those things which are reserved (imputed) in heaven for us....to apprehend in our life and hearts what He has purchased and accomplished on our behalf. This is what our pilgrimage on earth is for, and all for HIS glory (for this purpose: To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God. Eph 3:10), which pilgrimage/race isn't over until our life on earth is over. The word of God is not a formula, but it is LIFE and revelation when it is ministered to us by and through the Holy Spirit. The washing of the water of the word (TRUTH!) which transforms and re-NEWS our minds, because as a man thinks in his heart, so is he.
  6. The Final Awakening is Beginning....

    We are to be doers of the word and not hearers only.....and if we are sincere in our faith we will have a desire to be pleasing to the Lord, and any area that He brings to light where we come to realize we are falling short, we will sincerely seek Him for His strength and Help to be able to do His will. But it's in how the word is brought that makes it either legalism or ministering life to a person (and sometimes the truth hurts, so we can't just go by our feelings alone on that). The fault is never in God's truth/word itself, but there can flaws in how we bring it.....because God's word comes through our human vessels and whatever is in our vessels that still needs to be overcome can interact with the word that we bring. What is amazing is that for all our human faults and weaknesses, the Lord has promised that the gates of hell will not prevail against His church, and He is able to still work all these things together for the good of those who love Him. And if we love Him we will be sincerely desiring and seeking to please Him.
  7. The Final Awakening is Beginning....

    It doesn't seem that we can really compare one person's experience or battle with that of another, it's like apples and oranges. We are all unique with unique battles, the underlying circumstances of which are known only to God, and that is why He is the only righteous judge. If someone who comes to faith in Christ and is miserable over a besetting sin I would think that is because they know the Lord, not because they don't know Him...if they didn't know the Lord they would be happy in their sin rather than troubled over it. For example, one person's mere willful self-indulgence is another person's deep bondage and need for healing.....even when the behaviour looks the same from outward appearances. Everyone's background is different, eg, life experiences growing up, Godly or ungodly lineage, etc, etc.....infinite number of variables, so nobody can make themself a measure of anything. We each only know in part, often only from the perspective of the part that we are......and if we think we know we do not yet know as we ought, and the word also says if we think we stand we are to take heed lest we fall. These truths serve to keep us humble and looking to the Lord and deter us from carving what we think we know into stone....because the truth of Christ is a living thing....and we are to keep it in spirit, and let it be ministered in spirit, rather than set in cement of the carnal mind so to speak. What I read in scripture that He requires at any given moment, is that we walk according to what we have attained and continue to grow from there. We are to go on to perfection, but that is not something we already instantly attained, otherwise there is no need to go on to something we already have attained the moment we came to faith in Jesus. This is why there are the admonitions and instructions of scripture which were written to His own because we need it to run the race, not because we don't need it. What the Lord wants from us to just to stay in the battle, stay in the race and keep running it. Keep following Him, keep learning, keep fighting, keep growing, keep trusting Him to lead us home. How He grows us is by stretching us.......leading us into battling the things we haven't overcome yet, not the things that we already have overcome. He leads us into situations that require more faith than we currently have....or leads us into circumstances that cause us to have to face an area in our heart that isn't healed yet.....etc.....so that we will seek Him for what we lack and thus we increase and gain more. If we don't keep facing more battles and challenges we won't keep growing. It is these battles and challenges that make us to know our weakness, and so that is when His strength can be made perfect in our weakness, when we know it. Not when we stay in the safety of the status quo and don't know our weakness.....so we are to keep on keeping on, keep following the cloud and fire, not remain camping out forever in our last victory which is when it gets set in cement and loses its life, it's spiritual quality.....because there are always more victories to come as we go from glory to glory, victory to victory, taking more ground for the kingdom of God. Here we all are....here is the mind/attitude we all are to have: Phl 3:12-16 Not that I have already obtained it or have already become perfect, but I press on so that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus. Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Let us therefore, as many as are perfect (mature), have this attitude; and if in anything you have a different attitude, God will reveal that also to you; however, let us keep living by that same standard to which we have attained.

    I have a hunch you two might be misunderstanding each other...? You are talking about loving your neighbour, regardless of religion or creed...which is fine and good. And frienduff is warning against the misguided ecumenical (interfaith) movement...which is essentially about being unequally yoked with unbelievers.....which as followers of Christ we must not do. And we must not accept or pretend or teach that all roads lead to God, because as followers of Christ we know that no man can come to the Father but by Him.

    Then I am sorry, but I can't help but ask, why not just preach what Romans 8 says and that way the rightful Author of it gets the glory....and also we would be giving a more accurate and less interpretative rendition. Give the devil no wiggle room.
  10. Conversation between Teacher & Student

    Actually Not me.....there is a third option......being led by false christs, false spirits. There is true spirituality and false spirituality. I agree we are not to be led by carnal reasoning......but we also need to be careful of false spirits. That's why are to TEST the spirits. The devil is SO deceptive, and it only takes a little tweeked concept sometimes to lead us off the track. Just make sure we are anchored to, nailed to, and grounded in the word of God and not letting our thoughts take flight and ascend above the stars, so to speak. Rather, our thoughts and imaginations need to be brought into CAPTIVITY to the Word of God.
  11. Conversation between Teacher & Student

    That is what I spiritually discerned. Maybe you are over-emphasizing that one scripture at the expense of others...? It is but one truth and needs to be taken in balance with all the others. I can only advise again to please be sure you test everything.
  12. Conversation between Teacher & Student

    Bless you.....and amen.
  13. Why no Christian is Sinless.

    Amen.....it shouldn't be that hard for a born again believer, to not rob a bank, to not punch somebody when we're angry, to not commit adultery, to not swear a blue streak, to not cheat on our taxes.....and so on. There can be times of temptation, and there can be particular bondages/strongholds that need to be broken and brought under the blood, but overall, we should be living by the new nature that we have received, which simply does not practice sin.
  14. Conversation between Teacher & Student

    The trouble is we can't rely on a feeling of peace entirely.....because there is a deceptive peace.....by which many will be destroyed. We still need to test it by the Word and so again I want to stress that it is the word of God that needs to be preached/taught rather than a concept called a "relationship". If we say, well if that's what your relationship with Christ is teaching you then it must be okay, that is misleading and fraught with peril. In all seriousness, that is how I discerned it......in other words, another spirit.
  15. Conversation between Teacher & Student

    A lot of error is due to the person's own heart and trying to justify their flesh, or the lens of their own limited experience, etc, etc.....however it still remains that the word of God is what needs to be taught, not an ephemeral, subjective relationship that is much wider open to anything goes. Because....anything does NOT go.
