Greek Logic is admired by many.
It can be a prison that locks out the truth of the Spirit.

I do not know if I could figure out that there was but one God from nature itself.
God is eternal, if not someone preceded him, thus he is not God. So did two God begin at the same time? What was before them. Do you need nature to know there is one God @kerwin? No, just simple irrefutable logic that we would all do well to listen to.April 27, 2018 at 9:59 pm #822786
Kerwin…..anything Nick disagrees with he uses his trump card “it’s carnel logic” that tends to give him the advantage of knowing the difference, putting him on high ground, to take pop shots at others, but when he does speak about things he uses simple logic like we all do.
God has given us all minds to reason with, and with his help our reasoning will aline with his, his spirit gives us his intellect to see as he does even in our “carnal” bodies WHICH HE CONSIDERS TEMPLES. The only difference is the secource we are using in our logic, NICK want’s us to believe his source is of GOD, OURS IS NOT, unless it agrees with his logic that is.
In this way he has set himself up as judge of GOD’S people, no one here has “all” knowledge we are all trying to grow in maturity to GOD THE FATHER. WE NEED TO BE CAREFUL we do don’t cause a brother to stumble. YOU SHALL KNOW THEM BY THERE FRUITS, AND FROM THE MOUTH THE HEART SPEAKS LOUD AND CLEAR. IMO

Wow, great analysis. It does appear to be that way and you are not the only one who has noticed. And he use to argue against you regarding Jesus origins, but now is in agreement. While I do not hold that view, it is amazing how you can judge people, then change your own mind, and agree with the one you judge, but then carry on judging.

T8…Are you talking to Nick or me. what makes you think because i have disagreed with Nick, about some things, that some how means i am Judging him?, if you are talking about me, There are lots of things i do agree with him about in fact probably far more then i do with you. But there are things I agree and disagree about with you also.
What is your point, your not trying to cause division between Nick and I are you?, Do i or anyone else, not have a right here, to agree or disagree, with you or anyone here? Thuth is T8, your the one judging here right? IMO

Now I want you to know, brethren, that my circumstances have turned out for the greater progress of the gospel, so that my imprisonment in the cause of Christ has become well known throughout the whole pretorian guard and to everyone else, and that most of the brethren, trusting in the Lord because of my imprisonment, have far more courage to speak the word of God without fear. Some, to be sure, are preaching Christ even from envy and strife, but some also from good will; the latter do it out of love, knowing that I am appointed for the defence of the gospel; the former proclaim Christ out of selfish ambition rather than from pure motives, thinking to cause me distress in my imprisonment. What then? Only that in every way, whether in revenge or in truth, Christ is proclaimed; and in this I rejoice.
Yes and I will rejoice, for I know that this evil will turn out for my deliverance through your prayers and the provision of the Spirit of Jesus Christ, according to my earnest expectation and hope, that I will not be put to shame in anything but that with all boldness, Christ will even now, as always, be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death.
All things work together for good….May 18, 2018 at 8:15 am #826413
The Word should read PRETENSE, not REVENGE.

I was agreeing with you gene. That doesn’t happen very often. But when it happens, I like to say it.
