You do not hear the Spirit speaking through him?
The glorious vessel was born at Bethlehem and later named Jesus.

Nick, you have trouble answering yes or no to simple yes / no questions. According to scripture, this is because of collusion with the Evil One.
All you need to say is simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.
Nick, life is too short to play the pride card. Humble thyself and let God exhalt you. Be honest in every question and situation. If conflicts arise, that is an opportunity to become better and iron out the wrinkles. You give yourself great opportunity because you would be shining hte light and exposing that which needs to be better.
But pride will hide your wickedness till Judgement Day or the Day of the LORD, when we all have to stand before him and give an account.
Think of the time we have left as this day. Except, you have a chance to change the outcome which is grace. If you leave it because of pride, then you will give an account where you cannot change anything, not even add a dot to the letter I can you add. Anyone would be sorry that their heart was so hard if they did that. They forgot that it was themself that they hurt.
Those who love are born of God, Nick. This is how you know a person who has been born from above. God is love and they will be like God.January 11, 2018 at 8:31 pm #820745
Judgement is not your appointed role.
Look to yourself.February 12, 2018 at 9:23 am #821203
Great Nick, you do understand about judging others. So why do you judge everyone as lesser than yourself. You act like you are the truth and everyone else needs you. Yet your doctrine is not still but moves. I have no problem with that of course, but you accused people the same back then who had a different view to you of which you also now have a different view. This is the problem I have. Why judge others in this way? Who appointed you the judge? Look at your own post and apply it to yourself. You have the understanding, you just need to judge yourself. When we do that, we lessen judgement from others and God.
But I give scriptures and you can fight them all you like and you can say I am accusing you of disregarding a pet doctrine of yours,. but the scriptures I quote are true and need to be dealt with. You need to take the full counsel because there in is the true overall picture of reality.
Of course it is to yourself to be a better man. But pride and arrogance can get in the way if we let it. A righteous man rejoices when he is corrected right?
What exactly are the scriptures that I quote that you have the most problem with?
The one’s about love being paramount or the ones about Jesus being born the messiah and son of God?February 12, 2018 at 10:12 am #821209
If you knew that scripture focuses on the work of the Spirit you would not be so keen to indulge in carnal warfare.

It is unfortunate that you take things personally and take up the cudgels for others who also may feel attacked by scripture.
It would be better if you could get beyond the human level and hear the words of the Spirit.March 20, 2018 at 9:15 am #821753
This topic demonstrates cleary one thing, Nick can take a topic which has a photo and a Bible verse and start an argument. Nice one Nick. lol.
Further, when I address your off topic point with more scripture, the argument grows.

Nick, I remember listening to Ray Comfort preach in the Christchurch Square. While I admired this guy’s bravery, I certainly wasn’t onboard with all his doctrine. Just saying that, so you don’t start an argument about that.
The point is, he once said to a heckler that he was doing a great job bringing in the crowds so they could hear the gospel. When that heckler left he asked him to come back. Thanks for your service Nick, is what I am saying. lol.March 20, 2018 at 9:22 am #821755
Why do you wage war against the messengers?
