    Hi GB,
    So lack of intelligence is death to you?
    You would not have to do these fancy dances if only you would accept the truth of scripture.

    Nick….Lack of (TOTAL) intellect is indeed death to anyone, i did not say a partial lack was death to anyone, when are you going to stop putting words in my mouth, if you are quoting me (PLEASE) have the decency to quote me properly without jumping to (YOUR) conclusions, is this what your idea of a Christian is, to misrepresent what other say. You seem possessed with trying to make me and others seem foolish and lacking in knowledge concerning the scriptures. There is no fancy dances it just your lack of understanding that makes it appear that way to you.

    Hi,
    Man loves his ignorant intellect.
    But it is no useful basis for assessing truth.

    Hi GB,
    Personal attacks do not reflect well on anyone.

    God is Spirit.
    Is God to you just an intellect?

    Going to the beach was a bust! The kids got invitations to friends houses and prefered that. Just as well because I need some personal time. :) I”ve been wanting to catch up here for quite some time.

    It seems no matter what thread I pop into….I see this aweful banter going on between Nick and Gene, or Nick and someone else. How sad that your brotherly love for one another has succumbed to exactly what evil would want.

    Bear with one another…..forgive as the Lord has forgiven you. As members of one body we were called to peace. Since we live by the Spirit let us stop provoking and envying each other. I'm sure this sounds familiar?

    Brothers, for the sake of other's who drop by our forum, please stop the banter back and forth – it produces NOTHING. Love covers a multitude of sins, however.

    Hi not3,
    To study truth you need an agreed foundation.
    I live in hope that Gene will confirm this should be scripture, just scripture..

    Gene's foundation is scripture.
    Your foundation is scripture.

    You both have various interpretations of said scriptures. This doesn't mean that you have truth and he doesn't. Or that your foundation is the correct one and his is in error. Does it? If so, why?

    Sorry to post and run, but I do want to get some things done while the kids are gone – my garden is a mess!

    I'll be back tonight. Thanks, Nick.
    :)

    Hi not3,
    I beg to differ.
    He teaches and that is the problem.
    He founds most of his teaching on opinion based on only one scripture.
    Then he accuses and rebukes others as being false because they are alarmed at this approach.

    Scripture is meant to be our true teacher.
    The Spirit reveals what is written by one scripture supporting another.
    Human teachers should only teach in submission to what is written not teach opinion.

    Hi,
    God is love.
    Love is of the heart, not the mind.

    I have been around long enough to witness everyone teaching at one time or another.

    Agreed. However, who is qualified to interpret the scriptures 100% accurately?

    This is one way, sure. However this can also be the downfall of those who love to quilt their own theologies together. You have to admit, some ideas we have heard here are strange. Yet they use scripture – yes sir – they do!

    I think if man were able to do this they would be nearing perfection. I do not know a man who can teach without passion or without inserting his own ideas and beliefs into the mix. I certainly haven't seen any of the teacher's you are talking about here… :;):

    Greetings Nick…..It is the understanding of scripture that will bring about the desired effect…..The under standing is fostered by meaningfull discussion of each others perception of what constitutes truth….It is called a forum(discussion)not a classroom….
