  1. Usually Christians quote the scripture where it's said that Christ looks at the heart, while man looks at the outer appearance (1 Samuel 16:7). They generally use it to justify worldly attire, amusements, and other fleshly activities, but that isn't what this verse points toward. The verse tells us that "the Lord seeth not as man seeth" because "man looketh on the outward appearance," while "the Lord looketh on the heart." That sounds as if we are to solely concern ourselves with God's opinions. In part, that's true. At the end of the day, the opinion God has of us will be the deciding factor on our salvation, but while we're still here in the flesh, we are called to be witnesses and a set-aside, holy people shining the Lord's light. How can we do that dressed and behaving as the world? We can't. Notice the verse says that men look at the outward appearance. Because that's said, we know that there is a outer appearance for a Christian man and woman, that signifies to people that said individual is saved. Yes, Christ looking at the heart sees the secrets and intentions of a man. If the outside is right, but the inside is wrong, guess what? It's all for nothing. It's in vain. There are multiple scriptures throughout the Word that deals with an Christian's outward attire. If it were not important, why is it there?
  2. If those changes genuinely take place inwardly, however, it can't help but to show up on the exterior as well. Biblical principles will come into practice.
  3. You're so very right. We are to live by God's holy standard. Once we're obedient to the Scriptures, we'll align with what they say.
  4. Jesus is the fullness of the Godhead bodily (Colossians 2:9). God is a spirit, and Jesus is that very spirit, clothed in human flesh.
  5. I would agree, somewhat. I believe holiness starts with issues of one's heart. What's in the heart will come out, either physically, emotionally, verbally, or in our dress.
  6. I don't necessarily know if this is the place to ask this question or not, but I figured I'd give it a shot. I've been a member of three online Christian forums in total, including this one. I don't mind being a member of them or this one, but I'd like to hopefully initiate starting an online forum centered around the Apostles' doctrine as upheld by Apostolic Pentecostals and both their denominations and independent movements.
  7. As Christians, living a holy (Hebrews 12:14) and separated life (2 Corinthians 6:17) is commanded by Christ and the Word. In saying that, holiness is one of the most debated things among Christians today. What the Word deems as holy and gives us scriptural references for, many today render legalistic or bondage. Holiness is needed in this hour we live in. I believe that holiness starts inward for a new Christian, and once said individual is obedient to convictions and the Bible, that inner holiness will have no choice but to reflect in outward chances. These outer changes will bring a Christian closer to Biblical modesty and holiness, coupled with personal convictions that won't deviate from the Word of God. It's not legalism. It's holiness. What say you?
  8. Have you experienced the Biblical Pentecost experience, as detailed in the second chapter of the Book of Acts?
  9. Speaking in tongues is mentioned in more places than Corinthians. Several other places to be clearer.
  10. We should strive to be filled with the Holy Ghost, the evidence of which is speaking in other tongues. Without the Spirit of the Lord, we are none of His.
  11. If a Christian has been filled with the Holy Ghost, evidenced by speaking in other tongues, then it is quite possible that said individual could have the gift of discernment. This doesn't mean that it "their gift," because I have personally felt something being off with people on a spiritually level, while I wouldn't necessarily classify myself as having the gift of discernment. Does that mean it isn't a gift of the Spirit that God's given me? Of course it doesn't. Will a believer always had said gift? Well, that's quite difficult for me to pinpoint. I'd have to know precisely what you're referring to in terms of "always". Just because God has given a Christian a certain gift doesn't always mean that said individual will always walk in or practice the gift entrusted with them. They might not press forward with said gift out of fear, or it quite simply might not be intended for them to act on.
  12. I wasn't thinking of it derogatorily. Considering I'm not too familiar with forum practices here, I didn't know if "tagged" meant I wouldn't be permitted to post in certain areas of Worthy. Now that you've clarified, I'm not worried at all. I'm perfectly willing to participate in conversations with those that don't have the revelations that I've gotten already. I don't mind sharing any knowledge I have to possibly help lead those seeking for greater Truth that they've already obtained.
  13. Oh, so I'll be marked? I was raised in the Trinitarian church, mostly Baptist and Nazarene. That was all until I saw the Jesus' Name revelation, however. It's not been the same since... to know who He truly is.
  14. Oh, I'm sure this topic has been addressed before, but I have frequented this site in quite some time. Honestly, I don't think I've done any posting here since I initiated my account last year. I assumed that the majority here wouldn't be Oneness. Most online Christian Forums are predominantly Trinitarian. I was actually banned from one for not being Trinitarian. How familiar are you?
