|1||unsaved in ministry||1 Cor 12:1||humbledbyhisgrace||227865|
Read All of 1 Corinthians 12
Who gives the spiritual gifts?
Who does He give them to?
What is the purpose of the gifts?
Other things to consider. Of what purpose does an unsaved person serving in any capacity of the body serve (1 Corinthians 12:3)? Another way we may want to ask this and ponder is, what affect on the body does it have when we are so careless to have the unsaved serving the body?
|2||What is God's unconditional love?||Eph 1:3||humbledbyhisgrace||227566|
Many times we think of ourselves as sinners (which we are) and undeserving (which is true) yet He loves us anyway (which is also true). If we only think of it from the point of view He "loves us anyway" I fear we miss the depth of it. If we would also consider His "unconditional love" from where it starts so to speak it seems to me to fully explain it. Or perhaps I should say it gives me a much better understanding of it then I once had. Consider His sovereignty! I think we can safely say that His unconditional love is of His own sovereign will to do so. In that we have security that it is His choice and not based on anything we say or do. His choice not influenced by mankind or anything else! On His own and to His glory He has chosen this. It is to be this way because God Himself has made it so! It should give us confidence that this is not from the heart of man who's heart can change but rather from God's who never changes!
|3||Lying justified?||Josh 2:5||humbledbyhisgrace||225093|
|Greetings Pastor Tim!
Is there a need to lie in the first place? In doing so it seems to me that mankind places faith in their own abilities rather than in God. How sad we are! Truth is we often trust in our self rather than God and in so many ways :-(
How big is a mustard seed anyway?
|4||Lying justified?||Josh 2:5||humbledbyhisgrace||225051|
|Doing okay my brother and hope all is well with everyone here also!
|5||Lying justified?||Josh 2:5||humbledbyhisgrace||225024|
|Yes try reading from 2:17 on to put it in context.
|6||Lying justified?||Josh 2:5||humbledbyhisgrace||225020|
|No I do not believe that it is. I would think a better understanding of this would be that it is her faith that is in view here.
|7||Spiritual gifts?||1 Cor 12:10||humbledbyhisgrace||219320|
Considering the author of the scriptures and the intent of the gifts (i.e. for the body of Christ), why would we ever think something so important would be left out?
|8||Gos Can Speak!||1 Cor 12:3||humbledbyhisgrace||219298|
Please do not do what I think you are about to do. If you are going to try and push that speaking in tongues is the meaning of what Paul is teaching in 1 Corinthians 12:3 your never going to sale that here. That would be a stretch completely ignoring the context and the written word.
True enough one must be in the Spirit, have the Holy Spirit of God dwelling within for him/her to speak in tongues. But the same is true for one to perform any and all of the spiritual gifts.
Before you attempt to push this, if that is indeed what you are about to do, then please answer this question for us. Paul says in 1 Corinthians 12:3b "and no one can say, "Jesus is Lord," except by the Holy Spirit." Are you going to also tell us that if someone is unable to say Jesus is Lord in tongues that they are NOT in the Spirit?
If I am off base on my assumption of what you are about to push regarding this subject please forgive me. I apologize in advance and will do so again if I am in error about what I see coming.
There is nothing in this passage that would lead us to assume he appeared as a man.
Do you understand?
|10||Oneness theology wrong again||2 Cor 13:14||humbledbyhisgrace||218140|
Another good passage that should help you better understand where the teaching comes from.
|11||Oneness theology wrong again||2 Cor 13:14||humbledbyhisgrace||218139|
Are you a Jehovah Witnesses?
They also contradict the biblical teaching of the resurrection of Christ.
You do not seem to be willing to address the passages of scripture offered to you in this discussion for clarification. Why not?
Here is something else for you to consider.
John 2:19 (NASB95) Jesus answered them, "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up."
What is the temple He is speaking of? (See John 2:21). Surely you do not contend that mankind has the ability to destroy the spirit. So what temple is Christ speaking of and therefore, what was raised up in three days?
Hope this helps!
|12||Oneness theology wrong again||2 Cor 13:14||humbledbyhisgrace||218135|
|Greetings Brother John!
I don't post much any more but I still read along from time to time and it always does my heart good to see you and the others remaining so faithful!!!
|13||Oneness theology wrong again||2 Cor 13:14||humbledbyhisgrace||218134|
|Greetings my dear Sister!
Thank you and I miss you too you know!!!
|14||Oneness theology wrong again||2 Cor 13:14||humbledbyhisgrace||218133|
|Hi again jt!
See 1 Corinthians 15:42-44. What is it that is "sown in corruption" and "raised in incorruption" and "sown in dishonour" and "raised in power"?
Our spirit does not die does it?
Go back and read verses 35-37.
We will be transformed to be like Him (Philippians 3:21)
|15||Oneness theology wrong again||2 Cor 13:14||humbledbyhisgrace||218128|
What passage of scripture are you referring to when you say... Christ "went back to being a spirit creature, when the need for a body came to an end".
There are many passages of scripture that would strongly argue for a much different understanding. Here are a few passage of scripture that might help clarify...
Read Matthew 28 1-15. Was Christ only raised spiritually? See Luke 24:3 also!
Did He not eat after His resurrection? Acts 10:41
Did Thomas not place his fingers in Christ wounds suffered during His crucifixion? (See John 20:27)
John 5:28-29 (NASB95)
5:28 "Do not marvel at this; for an hour is coming, in which all who are in the tombs will hear His voice,
5:29 and will come forth; those who did the good deeds to a resurrection of life, those who committed the evil deeds to a resurrection of judgment.
1 Corinthians 15:13-14 (NASB95)
15:13 But if there is no resurrection of the dead, not even Christ has been raised;
15:14 and if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is vain, your faith also is vain.
Read all of 1 Corinthians 15
The resurrection of the dead is not referring to only the spiritual man.
|16||Why do children lie?||Eph 2:3||humbledbyhisgrace||215522|
Welcome to the Study Bible Forum!
The scriptures teach us that by nature we are children of wrath.
Ephesians 2:1-3 (NASB)
2:1 And you were dead in your trespasses and sins,
2:2 in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience.
2:3 Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest.
and that all of us sin
Romans 3:23 (NASB) for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God
A child is no different then an adult regarding their sinful nature. A child will sin because it is their nature to sin. None of us grow up and become sinners. We grow up sinning because it is in our nature to do so. Just like it is with all of us, the child has no hope other then Jesus Christ. For only through Him will anyone be saved (John 3:16, Romans 6:23, John 14:6, Acts 4:12).
|17||MEANING OF ON THE VERGE OF A BREKTHROUGH||2 Tim 2:15||humbledbyhisgrace||215499|
Luke 18:1 (NASB) Now He was telling them a parable to show that at all times they ought to pray and not to lose heart
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NASB95)
5:16 Rejoice always;
5:17 pray without ceasing;
5:18 in everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
We are encouraged by the word of God to pray and not to lose heart!
We also know that if we ask according to His will He hears us and we have the requests which we ask. The key here is that we are asking according to His will. Of course this does not simply mean that we say in our prayer "according to Your will". It means that what we pray must be according to His will.
1 John 5:14-15 (NASB)
5:14 This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.
5:15 And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked from Him.
Although we may know from Scripture many things that is God's will to pray for we find ourselves in need and praying for many things that we do not know what God's will is. A good example of how we should approach these prayers that we do not know for sure can be see in Christ prayer in the garden of Gethsemane. I do not mean to imply any theological points regarding what Christ knew or didn't know regarding God's will in the prayer. The reason I point to this prayer is for you to see how Christ Himself prayed regarding God's will.
Luke 22:41-42 (NASB)
22:41 And He withdrew from them about a stone's throw, and He knelt down and began to pray,
22:42 saying, "Father, if You are willing, remove this cup from Me; yet not My will, but Yours be done."
I would like to encourage you to do some study on prayer. Not only will it help you, but it will also give you the spiritual knowledge on how to explain and teach your son how to approach God in prayer and what he can expect. This may very well help strengthen your sons faith. If he is praying, and for such a long period of time now and has not seen the results as he may well be expecting he could grow weary and begin to doubt. If he has a better understanding of prayer and God, then he is more likely to be stable and able to deal with the doubts brought on by the flesh and/or the enemy.
I will be in prayer for you and your son. That God may grant understanding and wisdom and help you both in this.

Welcome to the Study Bible Forum!
A year is a long time! I can relate as I'm sure many on the forum can as well. Many of us have prayed for things for long periods of time also.
Be encouraged by the word...
Philippians 4:6-7 (NASB) says
4:6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
4:7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Let us all strive to remember who it is that we go to with our prayers and supplication. He understands us and He knows our hearts.
Also let me commend you on persevering and teaching your son the value of coming together and praying to the Lord God! You did not mention your sons age but regardless, the lesson is a valuable one and for him to see you persevering in this may very well strengthen his faith and perseverance.
|19||explanation needed||Acts 8:37||humbledbyhisgrace||215434|
|The Greek aorist participle, epikalesamenos, translated calling on His name refers either to action which is simultaneous with or before that of the main verb. Here Paul’s calling on Christ’s name (for salvation) preceded his water baptism. The participle may be translated, “having called on His name.”—Bible Knowledge Commentary
Acts 8:34-37 (NASB)
8:34 The eunuch answered Philip and said, "Please tell me, of whom does the prophet say this? Of himself or of someone else?"
8:35 Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning from this Scripture he preached Jesus to him.
8:36 As they went along the road they came to some water; and the eunuch said*, "Look! Water! What prevents me from being baptized?"
8:37 [And Philip said, "If you believe with all your heart, you may." And he answered and said, "I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God."]
Note in the above passage that "If you believe with all your heart, you may".
Faith does not come through baptism...
Romans 10:14-17 (NASB)
10:14 How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher?
10:15 How will they preach unless they are sent? Just as it is written, "HOW BEAUTIFUL ARE THE FEET OF THOSE WHO BRING GOOD NEWS OF GOOD THINGS!"
10:16 However, they did not all heed the good news; for Isaiah says, "LORD, WHO HAS BELIEVED OUR REPORT?"
10:17 So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.
Ephesians 2:8-9 (NASB)
2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God;
2:9 not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.
|20||Does God ever turn His back on us?||Rom 8:39||humbledbyhisgrace||215406|
Welcome to the Study Bible Forum!
I think Paul had a much different view then your instructor does. What passage of scripture did your instructor point to as proof of the teaching? See Paul's view below.
Romans 8:28-39 (NASB)
8:28 And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
8:29 For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren;
8:30 and these whom He predestined, He also called; and these whom He called, He also justified; and these whom He justified, He also glorified.
8:31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us?
8:32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things?
8:33 Who will bring a charge against God's elect? God is the one who justifies;
8:34 who is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus is He who died, yes, rather who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us.
8:35 Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
8:36 Just as it is written, "FOR YOUR SAKE WE ARE BEING PUT TO DEATH ALL DAY LONG; WE WERE CONSIDERED AS SHEEP TO BE SLAUGHTERED."
8:37 But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us.
8:38 For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers,
8:39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
