    T8 said elsewhere:

    All you need to say is simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one. There is truth to this. I have found that people who cannot answer yes or no to fair questions when examining their doctrine do so because they have something to hide.

    My question is: Did Jesus answer questions with ‘Yes’ or ‘No’?

    Obviously he did not.

    According to t8’s theory then, Jesus “had something to hide”, or worse!

    “But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.” (Matt 5:37)

    Yea is “Yes” Miia, and Nay is “No”

    Are you suggesting that Jesus is not (according to Miia) referring to answering questions?

    (Matt 26:63-64) 63 And the high priest answered and said unto him,
    I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us
    whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God.

    64 Jesus saith unto him,

    “Thou hast said”

    Like “Yea” – “Thou hast said” means “Yes” Miia

    …will you next be arguing that it doesn’t?

    Matthew 5.37 is taking about oaths only.

    In context please read:

    Oaths

    33“Again you have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not swear falsely, but shall perform to the Lord what you have sworn.’ 34But I say to you, Do not take an oath at all, either by heaven, for it is the throne of God, 35or by the earth, for it is his footstool, or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King. 36And do not take an oath by your head, for you cannot make one hair white or black. 37Let what you say be simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything more than this comes from evil.g

    John 1:21 is one. Is that all you’ve got?

    Jesus rarely answered questions straightforwardly and definitely not with a yes or no.

    Jesus answered and spoke in parables /riddles. Which shows that Matthew 31 is referring to oaths as he plainly said.

    It simply means to be true to your word, and not to swear on anything, such as “I swear to God”, or “I swear on the Bible”, or even “I promise”. Has nothing to do with asking a belief based question and demanding an answer. Otherwise Jesus our teacher, would have answered every question with a ‘Yes’, ‘No’ or ‘I don’t know’!

    And I’m not going to answer your question, Ed (quote “Are you a genius Ed?” – T8 “You said it!” – Ed. What does my answer represent? “Yes” “No” “Something else”? unquote), because it is too distracting.

    BTW, it was the Pharisees and Sadducees who tried to trick Jesus by asking and demanding answers to their questions.

    Jesus spoke in parables to the people, but he spoke plainly to his disciples.

    The disciples came to him and asked, “Why do you speak to the people in parables?”

    He replied, “Because the knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them. 

    If Jesus speaks plainly to us, then who are we to assume you are better than your brother and speak to them like they are an unbeliever. In case there is doubt, the following tells us to alway give an answer.

    But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and be ready always to give an answer to every man who asketh you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear.

    And if anyone here thinks that dodging a fair yes or no question when investigating what they believe and teach, and hide behind the idea that this is acceptable conduct outside of oaths, then such is obviously not promoting honesty. What Jesus taught us was the truth. Let your yes be yes and no be no. This truth was uttered by the Lord when he was talking about oaths. Similarly, if the Lord said repent or you will perish while discussing the tower in Siloam that killed some men, then are we to assume that we do not need to repent because that advice was only pertinent in that situation.

    Always be ready to give an answer to all who ask. Let your yes be yes and no be no. The Devil is often in the long-winded details. Some people use the same tactic as a dodgy lawyer because their hearts are not true. . They think deceiving people using the small print is fine. But such even deceive themselves.

    Miia…..You are right, not every question can be answered with a simple, yes , no, answer.  The yes, no,  thing is a con game that decievers us to corner a person. Much like  T8 uses it in his deception about Jesus being , all ready  anointed at berth.   They pick one scripture out, while ignoring ten, twenty, or thirity, other scriptures that show differently.   They completely shutoff any think that opposes their false views.  

    REMINDS me of a time years ago , when I was the head of a school board , and a very good teacher wanted us to remove a problem student, so a our board meeting  we had the student as well as her parent there, we as about all the ten or so citations she had and her mother began to rant and rave about one of the complants, saying it was not her daughters fault, so we took a closer look and ask the student about it, she said that the other person was the fault, we also ask the teacher,and she told us what she actually saw,  and upon further inquire it could have possible not been the student fault it could go both ways, so we set it aside, and proceed to the other ten or so complants, but the mother kept going back every time to the first complaint , every time we went from one to another, asking the student to explain them , but the mother would jump in and take everything back to the first complaint,  after about an hour of this, I  said to her  “ok” we will through this one out, let’s not talk about that one any more, now what about these other ten or so we have on file . She still tried to talk about the first one , so we simply went into close session and took a vote , and decided to send the student to a school for students who had disipline issues, for a sumester.

    Point is YES, NO, demands can and are used many times for the very purpose of ignoring other possible outcomes. If a subject is introduced, To be fair all revelant  information on that subject needs to be comsidered to make a fair judjement call.  If a yes, no, question is demanded by anyone here, be carefull  it is probably  to trap a person in going alone with the one who ask the question.

    I ask T8…. several times for a yes, no, answer to, “was Jesus anointed “twice”? , He ignored the whole thing, why ?, because  we all certanily know Jesus was baptized and Anointed with the Holy Spirit at the Jordan river, all four GOSPELS AND MANY OTHER SCRIPTURES SAY HE WAS, Jodi went into great detail explaining it over and over,   and what’s the only response “just give us a “yes, no,” answer about what we ask, and completely ignore all the rest of the many, many scriptures that clearly explain when and where Jesus was “ANOINTED” .

    We need to always be careful of false teachers, here and in the world. I can as well as everyone here ask thousands of YES, NO,  questions.  IMO

    Peace and love to you and yours Miia, ………..gene
