Preachers should be even stricter convicted - so you must never preach if you are unable to live by God's word!
Unfortunately there are those who would misunderstand, attributing my opinions and views that I do not have, or want to be associated with and attributed to such views!
I am not against a single person who is re-married, then as a Christian or not.
Only pointed out that they are not fit to be ministers for God's word and learn!
Has just pointed out that the basis of the word of God, then it is not allowed for them to be preachers or share the word of God publicly.
When they live contrary to God's will for their lives!
Those re-married as believers.
We read about King Hezekiah that would make service which was reserved exclusively for priests, and he was eliminated leprosy as he had to live your whole life with.
Although he was king, he was not worthy to be a priest when he did not belong to the tribe of Levi.
So it is with remarriage, they need not be inferior people they than others.
But they have no right to preach or hold a service in the church of God.
James 3 1 My brethren not many of you become teachers, seeing ye know that we shall receive heavier judgment!
This really is ABC for the Christian life. We should live in accordance with what we believe and preach. And we should not preach something other than what we ourselves live by!
This is the essence of what I have preached regarding ekteksapet. And this very resistance we've had against this ministry.
Note also this, that I've never mentioned anyone other than preachers. Perhaps in passing, there have been something else?
But the main focus has been, and is, that is how those who should preach the word of God lives!
Has written several articles about this topic, lays out three to four article here.
1 article today, and so every day forward so that it is 1:03 to 4:00 article when the accusations against me are false, fabricated and lies!
I have only warned against preachers, not anyone else!
Searchlight 'm afraid that I'll be labeled a heretic because I do not believe in a Triad - God and an eternal hell for the unbeliever !
Arius who would not accept the unbiblical doctrine of the Trinity was called heretic although his teaching was biblical and those who opposed him were unbiblical and false teachers of God. It will go the way of God in this world must always expect resistance , contempt and be called for both the one and the other. Here Arius the God man he was :
From Wikipedia: Arius ' theology is devoid of the sense of God's mystery . His arguments are more philosophical than theological and using a sterile logic , he reached forward to their conclusions about God. First and foremost thought from the Neo-Platonic assumptions , such as that God is eternal and an unknown monad . This understanding of God is the starting point and leads him to the conclusion logically that the Son can not be God like the Father. His basic thesis is then that " what was once his son was not ." A very important passage for him in this respect was Proverbs 8.22 "I was the first Lord brought forth , his first work of old" . In a quote by Arius from approx . 320 ( passed by Athanasius of Alexandria and Epiphanus ) "Therefore, there are three entities ( hypostases ) , the Father , Son and Holy Spirit. And God , which is the cause of all things , is the only one without a beginning ( Anarchos ) , but the Son , which was born with the moment of the Father and created and established before the ages , was not before he was born , but born without too time subject all , he alone existence of the one Father. " Arianism is a theological doctrine that has as background the Alexandrian priest Arius ' teachings. Arius lived approximately 260-336 . According to Arianism , the Son (Jesus Christ ) is a created being , the first and highest of all created beings , but he is not divine. It has been a time when the Son was not yet , a short form of slogans arian organism centerpiece of Christology site. Father ( God) has created the Son of nowhere, and later than the beginning of time. Although the Son is the Father's most perfect works are essentially different , and the Son is called Son only in the same sense as the people called God's people. Likewise, the Holy Spirit is the Father's second most perfect creation. The Father alone is thus the largest and Trinity term can not be applied if God ..
Searchlight by Kjell Andersen writes: Another issue Jan Kåre Christensen also struggling with is that he purely theological in many ways has broken with what most regard as classic evangelical Christianity and that he therefore also be seen as a " heretic " in many contexts .
Jan Kåre Christensen 's " Heavenly blog " has clearly two primary goals nemelig to expose believers human sins in the same spirit that drives the controversial " Amigthywind sect " to publish videos on You Tube that folds out mistakes and sins that were previously members to have committed . The second goal Jan Kåre Christensen has his blog is to proclaim religious message that other Christians regard as heresy. As is well known Bible teacher rejects Christensen et sentraldogmene of the Christian faith teaches that the Bible God has revealed himself as a triune God, Father , Son and Holy Spirit. Jan Kåre Christensen learn about the " Godhead " is not modalistisk or in a " Jesus Only" which in reality is a sort of " funksjonstrinitarisme " but more reminiscent of Jehovah's Witnesses "to- God - learn " where Jesus is " a god under God. " Although Jesus repeatedly identifies himself as one with the Almighty " I am" and thus identify themselves as " powerful " , Jan Kåre in reality ethene made Jesus an inferior God second . This is completely settled ideas taken from Jehovah's Witnesses Bible understanding. While the Christian church teaches that there is a God (one divine being) who has revealed Himself in three persons Only Jesus teaches that the one God has revealed Himself in three functions (or mode) . Thus, one can actually mention " Jesus Only" theology as a " functional Trinitarianism ," while the doctrine of Jan Kåre in reality polytheism with two gods. If one is to believe what Jan Kåre preach the Holy Spirit is certainly not God as classical Christianity teaches and preaches he thus a different gospel . Another classic dogma that Smyrna Assembly Bible teacher rejects the idea that hell is eternal torment. This idea has been embraced by a number of religious movements has in recent years gained increased support especially in liberal theology and in some religious sects . "Christensen spreading blasphemous doctrine, that neither Jesus or the Holy Spirit is God and that hell is everlasting ," the minister Bjorn Johansen Storm in an email to Searchlight . ( end of quote ) .
This is hard outcomes against me and Smyrna Oslo.
But we believe in as . the same as Adventists about the destruction includes , they are then worldwide approx . 20 Million .
We think about Jesus much the same as the Coptic Church , they are X number of Million members. Taking therefore what Adventists and the Coptic Church teaches . There will be an answer well enough Searchlight and Kjell Andersen . Have several articles on these topics both in the blog and website.
Adventists of eternal damnation as Smyrna Oslo shares the same view as:
The wicked will be destroyed instead of being an eternal damnation
What Adventists believe about hell ? Adventists believe in perdition , ie the wages of sin is death . The Bible explains many places death as a dreamless sleep. They reject the idea that God will torment his creatures in times without end , making God a torturer in Fawlty Towers . It is God's enemy , the devil , who is responsible for the disorder . God is not through eternity retain something of the devil's contributions in existence. Adventists believe that sin and people who will not let his salvation , being annihilated in the judgment . Hardly any other doctrine than that of purgatory and eternal punishment of the wicked judge, has created several gudsfornektere , and more despair . SDA stands for a positive and bright view of God . He wants a voluntary and happy people , and not people to be frightened or threatened into heaven. God's actions are not arbitrary and ruthless . He delivers with love and not by force or coercion.
Evangeliekirken in Arendal also teaches right here :
Let me make some scriptures that support what I mean.
Only in 1 Genesis 3:22 And the LORD God said, Behold the man is become as one of us , to know good and evil. Only he did not stretch out his hand and take also of the tree of life , and eat, and live forever. End of quote . Here it is in fact that it was not intended that man should live forever after the fall ! No one would disagree with that?
The next thing I want to see are 1 Book Samuel 28:15 : And Samuel said to Saul , Why have you disturbed me by bringing me up ? End of quote . It shows Samuel us that he " sleeps! Grave. And shall first wakes up in the last day , where all the graves will rise . Then to the final judgment . Fortuneteller But conjured Samuel up early. The same happened with Moses and Elijah. They were upset and were picked up by Jesus. The same also happened with Martha and Mary's brother Lazarus in the tomb . After 4 days in the grave was disturbed and brought Lazarus back to life, but the ordinary had been that he had been in the tomb of the resurrection day. We see that these people were dead and " asleep. " A passage to underline how for example the prophet Samuel and King Saul and his sons were after death. There we read in 1 Samuel 28:19 Samuel said to Saul here , quote : " Tomorrow you and your sons be with me. " End of quote . It says clearly that Samuel was a man the Lord would be with Saul and his sons to the grave . Saul was as an apostate from the Lord . Finally, I will mention Lazarus and the rich man . The story told by Jesus is no salvation history, for it had all the poor admitted to Paradise and all the world as place of torment . So what did Jesus really the story . Then do well to read the Bible teaches January Lillby writes:
A FUTURE LIGHTING
By Jan Lilleby
I could not just let Bullinger article be left without getting into that now must be the reader's next question: If the story of Lazarus and the rich man came real thing " after death " - what was that reason Jesus reviews persons such as actually thought, spoke and acted according to their " death " ? Jesus describes even that it was put one big abyss choose between Lazarus in Abraham's bosom and the rich man who was tortured in hell (v. 26). This sounds really powerful , right ? And the rich man begs that Lazarus had come and cool rich man's tongue with a finger dipped in water ( verse 24) , which perhaps might have been neck hairs to the Jews who heard the story - to rise up in horror !
Well, without further comparison , - let me mention Æsobs Fables , known Greek eventyrlignelser to tell a general truth but with a fictional story . You know - the fox , crow and cheese piece . Or he who cried wolf so many times that when the wolf one day really showed up , no one even bothered to hear - and the wolf turns giving him a free pass. Simple parables or fairy bits used to promote a general truth . Or the story (these stories is the infinite ... right? ) About the "wise " but lazy farmer who would facilitate their work and therefore decided he would rather sit on the branch he was cutting off - iførste place to facilitate their toil, - but that ended up in a tragedy that was the price for being lazy! He fell down by branch and was killed . Instead the farmer would rather cost of a little more tedious method : Buy a ladder and stand on it, leaning to tree trunk , and safely cut of the aforementioned proverbial branch. Laziness cost him his life - but the story as such was fictional . It is therefore not considered to be a lie , for it stated the history caricature of the unfortunate that it is fictional with overlegg.Slik is the rich man caricatured by Jesus , and transferred to the unbelieving Israel and their Pharisees .
Another of the many endless word-pictures that are used frequently, even today , is that "he who digs a pit for others will himself fall into it ." And dear reader : this was what Jesus used " the story of Lazarus " to : To fabricate a given history and issues, - which in itself was a true story - but that would point to a TRUTH ITSELF OUTSIDE THE STORY .
What did Jesus pointed with his " Aesop fable" ? Yes, we find this clearly in his reply , Luke.16 , 31 where Jesus uses Lazarus ` response to the desperate rich man ( here the rich man caricatured / ridiculed ) about his wish that someone had to come back from the dead to warn Israel against falling into perdition : " But he ( Lazarus ) said to him (the rich man ) : if they hear not Moses and the prophets , then they (Israel ) can not be persuaded, though one rose from the dead. "
Jesus used the fable or story to chastise Israel's disobedience in relation to believe Moses and the prophets witness of Christ ! Therefore, it can not be used word for word , as if it were an encyclopedia of life - death - judgment - salvation - damnation . There you have the whole Bible , speak , and it must have voice without that it would be brought in contradiction of stories that Jesus invented to promote a general truth .
You will see from my last article in this article collection, that the false teachings of the Pharisees who ran such of eternal torment for those who did not believe their false doctrine comes from pagan cultures and not from the Jewish - and not Moses and the prophets. The Pharisees used the threat of eternal torment in hell as a force to get people to submit to their evil doctrine, and so could suck money out of people totally unfair ! The Pharisees understood that Jesus was speaking about them - and finally they crucified Jesus. Jesus dotted all their evil false teaching both life and death , so it gjøv for! With the rich man and Lazarus , Jesus turns the Pharisees in the face ... with their own lies and nonsense ! We believe in perdition , ie the wages of sin is death . The Bible explains many places death as a dreamless sleep. We reject the idea that God will torment his creatures in times without end , making God a torturer in Fawlty Towers . It is God's enemy , the devil , who is responsible for the disorder . God is not through eternity retain something of the devil's contributions in existence. We believe that sin and people who will not let his salvation , being annihilated in the judgment . Hardly any other doctrine than that of purgatory and eternal punishment of the wicked judge, has created several gudsfornektere , and more despair . We stand for a positive and bright view of God . He wants a voluntary and happy people , and not people to be frightened or threatened into heaven. God's actions are not arbitrary and ruthless . He delivers with love and not by force or coercion.
What will happen to Satan , the Antichrist , the False Prophet , the fallen angels , demons , all the wicked and unbelieving ? They will be destroyed and annihilated . Annihilate : verb trans . obliterate [' ʉ ː tʃletə ] destroy, remove completely .
Lake of Fire
This will meet all lost in the end , God the Father as a consuming fire !
When it comes to destruction so I get a few things not to vote with the God that I have learned and know . If we include the Old Testament as the sum of hell maybe a little different than we think ?
For one thing, rather I more and more to what Adventists believe that the unsaved eventually die immediately after death! Then I believe that through hell and judgment , the unsaved will be destroyed .
Forexample : if hell had been forever for those who died unsaved , it would have been impossible and bring children into the world! It had been a gamble unparalleled in history! If the majority of humanity is on the way to destruction where there is eternal torment , then it is much better and not be born! When we owe well among many others, including abortion doctors , an apology! They have for years now been removed fetuses that are going to hell . When fetuses being put to death so early, classifies the not to eternal life with fire and brimstone ! Remember that there are only a few who converted to Christ !
As you know, the wand , it's not all men , even of Christian parents , who are being saved . The chance that a person comes to faith is well approx . 10 per cent in Norway . In most countries the percentage is much less . Should people then take the chance to give life to their children, if the chance was 90 percent or more , that they once were to end up in hell with the devil and his demons ? No, I do not think so ! There is not a single place in the Bible that there are risks filled and bring children into the world. On the contrary , it says that God wanted the children would be as numerous as the stars of heaven ... No one in the Old Testament and in the New Testament warns against putting children into the world . Jesus did not, nor the apostles.
Another issue is whether Noa ! God destroyed ca . 2 million people in the flood, but he saved 8 pieces. It resulted in continued sin on earth , and if we want to figure out how many people will go to hell because of this , in the past, present and future , it will be enough number of approx. 15 BILLION people or more . Can you imagine such an amount in hell ? I certainly do not think that God would allow , that this large number was tormented for all eternity. Here it must be wrong with the translation from the Hebrew and Greek Scriptures , and that's it! You can read the front of this piece.
Anyway , it's Jesus we must repent and believe in , even if hell exists or not , and if you want to enter heaven , so we come in there, even though we do not believe in an eternal hell ! But luckily THEN TELL GOD'S WORD In the text because the unsaved to be destroyed , and that is exactly what they want , SO HERE GET BOTH PARTIES TO THEIR ELECTION MET !
Eternal torment , eternal death
The notion of an eternally burning hell where lost human souls writhing in pain and torture through all eternity has created both anguish and problems for many Christians. It should not be ignored that some passages - or rather translations - apparently supports this view. It is difficult to reconcile such an interpretation with biblical account of a just and merciful God who judges people by their deeds. Let us examine the problematic verses .
"Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me , ye cursed , into everlasting fire , prepared for the devil and his angels. . . . And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into eternal life " (Mt 25,41.46 ) . The Greek text ( Textus Receptus ) says : " Then he will say also unto them on the left hand : Depart from me , the cursed , to the eternal fire , prepared for the devil and his angels. . . . And they will go away to these eternal punishment , but the righteous into life eternal . " " The smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever . They have no rest day nor night , who worship the beast and his image , and whosoever receiveth marked with his name "(Revelation 14,11 ) . Basic Text: "And the smoke of their torment rises for ever and forever , and they have no rest day nor night who worship the beast and his image ." "But you who are troubled , he shall rest with us . This will happen when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with his mighty angels. He comes in flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and on them that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus . The punishment they will suffer the eternal damnation away from the Lord and from the glory of his power "(2 Thessalonians 1.7 to 9 ) . Basic Text: "And to you who are aspiring betrengt , rest with us at the revelation of the Lord Jesus from heaven with the angels of his power in flaming fire , giving punishment to those who knowingly God , and to those who do not obey the gospel the Lord our Jesus Christ , who shall suffer punishment , destruction ( destruction ) forever, face away from the Lord and from the glory of his power . " Let's go to these verses in detail .
The first thing we should note is that both Matthew 25 , Revelation . 14 and 2 Thessalonians 1 uses the Greek word " aion " (in different grammatical inflections ) of " forever." This means "long ", " eternal ", " something that never ends ," but also " time-span ", " life ", " generation ". The term " aion " is therefore used both for a limited time and for an unlimited period , " infinity ". The word is used in other words, unconditional on " forever" in the sense of something that never ends . In Revelation . 14,11 used the phrase Aion aionon ( forever and forever ) , and in Revelation . 20,10 used Aion ton aionon ( the eternities forever ) for the right to emphasize that the punishment is eternal. It can not be undone in the eternity of eternities .
It is not really the word "eternal " that creates problems. It is the word " torment" that causes anguish . Let us examine this expression . Matt . 25 , 41.46 - " Eternal fire. . . eternal torment . " In the original Greek text reads as follows: " the eternal fire " (v. 41 ) and "they will go away to these eternal punishment " (v. 46). In the Norwegian Bible says "eternal torment" in v. 46, but in the Greek text reads " kolasis ", which means " center ", " torture ". The word can thus mean " torture " but can also mean " punishment ." Which option best matches the image of a just and merciful God? God tortures people? Revelation . 14.11 : " The smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever ." Basic Text , " the smoke of their torment their ". It uses the Greek word " basanismu " for " torment" . It means " torture ", " torment ", " nuisance ", and according to Greek dictionary it says in Revelation . 14,11 in the sense of " eternal damnation ." 2 Thess. 1.7 to 9 , " eternal damnation ." Greek : " Those who shall suffer punishment , an underpass forever." The word " punishment " is " dike ", which means " right ," " justice ," " judgment ," " the exercise of a judicial decision ." The word " destruction " is " olethron ," which means " destruction ", " destruction ", " doom ". 2 Thess. 1.7-9 is the key to these problematic verses in the Bible: " The punishment they will suffer the eternal damnation . " Paul says here that the wicked will suffer eternal destruction , destruction , destruction - that the punishment they suffer an eternal damnation , eternal death and destruction , not eternal torture. The sound reasonable , and practice non-violence in God's character. It is in this light that we must understand the other verses. It is easy to interpret it difficult . In Matthew 25:46 , it says "eternal torment" , also means " eternal punishment ". This meaning is also consistent with Paul. In Revelation . 14.11 says. " The smoke of their torment ." You used the word to mean " eternal damnation ", which is also consistent with Paul.
« Consumed »
Let 's look at Revelation 20.9 of the wicked : "And they went up over the broad earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city . But fire came down from heaven and devoured them . " Word" consumed "is the Greek " katephagen , "which means" swallow "," consume ". The wicked are simply consumed, destroyed in a fire that destroy both soul and body , as Jesus says .
They lost in the eternal torment. Detail from Michelangelo's decoration of the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican They lost in the eternal torment. Detail from Michelangelo's decoration of the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican And Revelation 20.10 : " And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone , where the beast and the false prophet are . And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever . " Basic Text :" And the devil, the seducing them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and lying prophet . And they will be tormented day and night for ever and ever the eternities . " It says that the devil will be tormented day and night forever and ever . Let us also look at Ezekiel 28,14.18.19 the devil / Satan / Lucifer , and what happens to him in the end : " Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth , and I put on the holy mountain . Thou hast walked among the stones of fire . . . . Upon thy iniquities , by your unjust trade , you profaned your sanctuaries. Therefore will I bring forth a fire from you, and it shall devour you. I bring thee to ashes upon the earth for all them that behold you. . . All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee . A terror , and you're gone - forever. "
It says the Ezekiel plainly that Satan will be consumed and turned into ashes. He is destroyed and disappears , " disappear" forever. The Hebrew word used here for " eat " is " Akal " which means " burning up ", " consume ". As we saw in Matthew 25:41 , they lost people go away " . . . the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. " Since the devil is consumed and turned into ashes , it is reasonable that the lost who go to the same fire, suffering the same fate. They are also consumed and becomes ashes. There is a total destruction , and as we shall see , is also the soul destroyed in this fire . It is neither root nor branch left, says the prophet Malachi : "For behold , the day cometh ! It burns like a furnace . When all the proud and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up , saith the Lord of hosts , that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. . . . And you shall tread down the wicked . They shall be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day when I act, says the Lord of hosts " (Malachi 4,1.3 ) . The wicked will burn up , says Malachi , and there is no root or branch back , ie nothing. They turn into ashes, he says . They will be destroyed.
Sodom / Gomorrah
" Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven. He overthrew those cities and all the plain , all the inhabitants of the cities , and all that grew on the ground . . . . Early morning Abraham went to the place where he had stood before the LORD , and he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah and all the land , and, behold, the smoke rising from the land , like smoke from a furnace. How it happened , when God destroyed the cities of the plain, that God remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of the destruction , when he overthrew the cities in which Lot dwelt in "( Gen. 1 19,24.25,27-29 ) . " . . . Even as Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities around, like in the same way as these fornication, and going after strange flesh , and now is an example of our eyes and suffer the punishment of eternal fire " (Jude 7). Basic Text : " . . . been set up as an example , ilds suffering eternal punishment . " Again , the word " dyke " for " punishment " and means that before mentioned , " right ," " justice ," " judgment ," " the exercise of a judicial decision. " Ancient cities of Sodom and Gomorrah were completely destroyed by fire, an " eternal fire , " says Jude . Again, the Greek word " aionu " ( the root word " aion ") used. What do as apostle with this expression ? Sodom flames are long extinct , and the areas in which these cities were , now lies on the shores of the Dead Sea , or under water. It can not be about "eternal fire" in the sense that it burns forever. But as we have seen, also the word " aion " means a " limited time ." Because the flame is extinguished long ago , is it logical enough to interpret the word in this sense ? The "eternal fire" burn as long as there is nothing to burn . When everything is turned into ash, extinguish the fire .
Jesus "the second death ": " Fear not them which kill the body but can not kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell "( Matt. 10.28 ) . Here Jesus says that both soul and body be destroyed in hell. Jesus does not say that they should suffer for all eternity , but will be destroyed . How much is the back of a human being when both soul and body is destroyed? The Greek word for " destroy " is the " apolesai ," which means " destroy " " destroy ," " perish. " Soul is therefore not immortal, but can perish and be destroyed.
Is God a mega - torturer ?
None of us would choose to serve a God who allows lost people agonize in pain forever for the sins they have committed in a short life here on earth. A man who has lived for 70 years here on earth , in other words tormented anguish and pain in billions of billions and billions of years - forever in eternal hellfire ? How has God's grace , mercy , compassion , justice and love all the way? Is this a joy for the families that have been saved? Will those who believe in eternal torment answer what kind of God we are dealing with ? Imagine if you were on the new earth , while your beloved children , or friends, family, etc. were gone lost. Would it be a joy for you to know that God tortured , tormented and tortured loved ones in hell for all eternity ? Of course not ! Maybe you are having heard the desperate screams their thousands of years , implored God to let them escape . And would God respond when he obviously would not let them escape , but they were lying there in pain through all eternity ? What is this picture of the biblical God so loved the world that he gave his own Son nailed to a cross like a criminal for you and me to be saved? There are many people who have renounced God and would not have anything to do with him because of this terrible heresy . Their logic and common sense told them the image of God, the eternal torment popular preachers served , did not fit properly, so they bade farewell to such a God . But our God is not so. He is a mega - torturer that plagues and torments people through eternity of eternities . Did you find this sound reasonable ? Fortunately this is not the God of the Bible portrays . He is full of compassion for his creatures . How could he give his only begotten Son to save people from sin and damnation , but the torment and torture lost people through all eternity ? God is just. It is then explicitly in the Bible that all may be judged and punished according to their deeds . Is it a just God that plagues and torments people for eternity for what they 've done in a short life ? Do you think this is an accurate picture of the compassionate Jesus who gave his life for you and me ? Of course not .
Is the love of God more than human love? Or is human love greater than the love of God ? The answer is simple enough : God's love is the greatest of all, it surpasses any sense and any description. Just read John 3:16 . Now let me ask a question. If a man had a child who died without having accepted Jesus , the parents would have plagued and tormented this dear child forever ? The desperate screams , pain , suffering through all eternity, without delay - would you give your children such a fate ? And here you will answer Oh no , no, how can you believe such a thing ? But then the love of parents for their children greater than God's love for mankind ! The parents would not do that to their loved ones, but God , whose love for his creatures surpasses all understanding , will thus make it ? Is there something amiss here ? The Bible portrays not our Heavenly Father as a supertorturist , but rather as a merciful and just God , full of mercy and compassion for his creatures . Will the righteous judge a child who has stolen 50 cents to death or to life imprisonment ? Another thing: If the wicked are in hell fire and tormented for eternity , they have the one conscious existence ! They feel pain and despair . Then they have the eternal life! A miserable life is enough , but yet forever ! Is this what the Bible teaches ?
The wages of sin
The horrible doctrine of eternal punishment can be refuted by a single Bible verse : "But the wages of sin is death " (Romans 6:23 ) . Basic Text , "For the wages of sin (s ) death ." Can you see what the wages of sin is for the wicked? death - eternal death , not eternal " torment " and " eternal life" in despair .
But some will argue : It is true that the wages of sin is death , but it's a resurrection from the dead on the Day of Judgment , and then all get their reward - either eternal life or eternal torment. But this has been answered in the above analysis makes it clear that the wicked reward is eternal destruction of both body and soul , that eternal death . This is the ultimate consequence of sin .
Let me summarize it this way:
1 There are few places in the Bible that the wicked are " tormented " forever.
2 But Paul in 2 Thessalonians . 1.7 to 9 gives the right picture the other verses should be interpreted according to. The wicked suffer eternal damnation , he said. The word " torment" can also mean " punishment" THE CASE Greek original text. The punishment is eternal damnation , he said. This is very important to understand.
3 The punishment is eternal , says Paul. But both body and soul is destroyed , ruined , perish , says Jesus. Revelation . 20 says that Satan will be cast into the lake of fire and will be " tormented day and night forever and ever ." But Ezekiel says that Satan will be destroyed and turned into ashes.
4 Thus, it appears that the there are contradictions in the Bible. but it is not. We should however interpret the difficult passages from the simple , and Paul makes it all clear. It is punishment , ie hell is eternal , not the physical suffering. Hell is eternal in the sense that both body and soul to the wicked who perish , are destroyed and there are no more forever. The doctrine of eternal torment is completely out of harmony with the Bible image of God, then is not what the Scripture says , when you go verses in detail , and it must be done in such difficult things. It is strange that parts of Christendom are doing such a terrible heresy and misrepresented God in this way !
5 The wages of sin of the wicked is death and not eternal life in torment and pain of hell fire . "For the Lord is compassionate and merciful " (James 5,11 ) . "The Lord is merciful and gracious , longsuffering, and plenteous in mercy " ( Ps. 103.8 ) . "For I have no pleasure in someone to die , saith the Lord God . So repent ye , and ye shall live "( Ezekiel 18.32 . ) The Christian God is not an eternal torturer , but a just and merciful God.
What the Coptic Church teaches about Jesus:
This is from the newspaper 's Day , written by Tore Hjalmar Sævik : The word Copt simply means Egyptian . - It is a historic national church which relates strongly to Egypt , explains Assistant Professor Peder Solberg at NLA University of Bergen. The correct name of the church is the Coptic Orthodox Church , in other words the " orthodox " Egyptian Church. It leads its roots back to the evangelist Mark, who allegedly founded the church of 40 century AD . During the 100s joined the Egyptians to Christianity at a rapid pace . But just discussing how orthodox or orthodox church really was , meant that it lost touch with the mainstream of Christianity as early as the 400s . New understanding the early Christian centuries was one theological controversies that overshadowed most other : The doctrine of Jesus , in technical terms Christology . How should we understand the relationship between Jesus as true God and true man ?
The claim that Jesus was created and not eternal , and therefore not truly divine, was put forward by the theologian Arius , who actually came from Libya , but kept to the Egyptian ecclesiastical center of Alexandria. He was dismissed as heretic by the first great Council of Nicaea in 325 But all was not told about this. The discussion continued about how Jesus' humanity and divinity hang together, or were separated. Among theologians of Alexandria, it was common to argue that Jesus two natures were fused into one. Hence they were termed as " Monophysites ". This doctrine became prevalent in Egypt. - The Christological questions which was the theme at the time, has been in ecumenical conversations come to no longer relevant . That way they are formally communion with the other Orthodox churches , says Solberg. Church Society is also a member of the WCC . - As with the other Orthodox churches , it has a strong liturgical awareness, adding Solberg . Original Egyptians Road to the Orthodox community , however, has been long.
The 400s were Monophysites condemned as heretics . Neither coercion or compromise led , according to a sartikkel the site kristendom.dk . The result was that the Coptic Church itself increasingly isolated from the rest of Christendom and got his own worship order and used as worship Coptic language. - They have a very strong national ecclesiastical consciousness. Family traditions are strong, and there is a lot of pride in this. They consider themselves the original Egyptians , says Solberg. The reason is that the Copts were in the country before the Muslim Arabs invaded in the 600s . The invasion led eventually to suppression , and a large part of Coptic Christians converted to Islam. In the 800s there were more Muslims than Christians in Egypt , according kristendom.dk .
Final comment :
We live here in Norway in a small " duck -pond " where you think you know everything, but know many times very little. How could such . Jesus having two natures ? It was when he gave up the glory He had with the Father that he could be you and me like . Without that he had given up everything and become a human being like us , he could not become our Savior and Redeemer . It is on the border of arrogance to believe in the Trinity , and the belief that God will burn , harass and torment people who do not believe in eternity is a strong delusion !
I regret nothing! Not to mention what I have preached and held forth as the biblical ideal and pattern!
We are in a spiritual battle in which leprosy is a picture of sin. Jesus' main weapons against the enemy, his purity, the church today are losing the battle when sin is allowed in the church. Gjengiftede preachers are like lepers before God and the church go down to the level Satan desires and wants so that he wins the victory and we as the church!
I look at Christianity in Norway as a major developing countries. Brother Aage Samuelsen had absolutely right when he said that Norway was a spiritually developing countries. Fine, but we have freedom here in Norway to spread the message, which I am very happy and thank God for. That's why I can write freely here and I thank God for.
Jan Aage Torp feel character killed by me
Jan Aage Torp feel character killed by me, but he put on his cap altogether. As I read scripture and what scripture holds that the norm is speaking scripture to be a woman's man, not two as Torp is. This is my conviction, and I'm not ashamed to hold up. It's very narrow-minded it Torp, Hanevold and peers are doing. They expect tolerance and respect, but never give it only if one agrees with them. Only the witnesses against their Christianity that it is hypocritical, unbiblical and not true!
No gjengiftede preachers to be Pastors
When unable to conformed his own house and marriage as the writing falls a colossal judgment of than.
1. Tim. 5. 8 But if any provide not for his own, and most of his household, he hath denied the faith and is worse than an infidel.
Torp write so boldly and unabashedly that he will not lose sleep even if he does not follow God's word and "leper". Yes, audacity knows no boundaries and in the humanistic and socialist Norway, it is very difficult to keep the biblical standard as scripture says we should not even eat with such people as Torp, Hanvold etc.
1. Kor. 5. 9 I wrote unto you in my letter that I should not have sexual relations with adulterers - 10 I did not mean in general adulterer in this world or the covetousness and robbers, or idolaters, or had in the exit of the world, 11 but what I wrote to you, was that I should not have sexual relations with anyone called a brother and an adulterer or an idolater, or havesyk or a railer or a drunkard, or robber, so I do not even eat with him.
Of course "normal" people who are re-married and want to be preachers realize we do not exist. But that would be a brother but that does not comply with the Word of God we will not even share live or communion with the community, we do so we will share in his sin and is involved.
Emanuel Minos is a catalyst for the dark
I have written so much about this several other places, but I'm not embarrassed or ashamed that I have dared and got it to take up the mega cheats Emanuel Minos is opening up for all, including those gjengiftede preachers mentioned. This is because he has so much confidence and influence among the broad strata of the Christian people!
Espen Ottesen a true Israelite
It is wonderful with the Lutherans and Catholics when it comes to Christian ethics and morality, where they lie in the whole, far, far above the Free Church. Yes, many, many notches!
Not least, they dare to hold that God actually requires and demands something of us. All thanks to them for that! That Jan Aage Torp and others do not like them, what do I care jot about, he is a spiritual egotist who only thinks of himself and his own belly as Hanvold and so many other free church gjengiftede preachers do. Let him call the Apostle, and he is sure, but not a true weather you safe.
This is from my commentaries Philip Wiper letter 3 18 I've said it often and have to say it again with tears that there are many live as enemies of the cross of Christ.
It's a pain to see that other believers fall short, like time after time. We are a body, when a member suffers and feels pain spread it over all others. Psalm 119 158 I look with loathing at the faithless, do not keep your word. Unfortunately there are still "Judas" who walks among the believers, who do not have the wedding garment on. But we must distinguish between misleading and being misled. And between cheaters and those which fail to.
19 They end up in hell, they have the stomach to the god and takes pride in what is a shame for them, and they are only concerned with earthly things.
It shows, unfortunately, time and again that there are too many people take so lightly on everything. God is rich enough for all but one have to open up and let him in.. When pleasure and deeds of the flesh can take root even in the believer's heart and mind. This can and will perish if you do not repent again (Ezekiel 33). (End of quote).
Torp get enough under the wide strata of Christians
Torp get enough under the wide strata of the Christian people, not least among the Free Church. I really think that the battle is lost to the Christian people of Norway, the dropout rate has gone too far, I am afraid of ugly. What we can hope and pray and work for a revival of God, but then no gjengiftede ministers who are divorced and re-married as believers stand on the platform, they are "lepers" and will take their illness with them. That's why I wrote that scripture speaks of Torp and peers are lepers when leprosy in the font is a symbol of sin, and sin is transmitted just like when one takes a bit of infected meat and spread there beyond, so is sin and leprosy is contagious and brings death wherever it comes.
Torp sleep too hard to understand the gravity
From my commentaries Ephesians 5 13 But everything comes to light when it is revealed by the light,
Everything, yes everything will come to light. We believe that something is not recorded, but it does in the heavenly computer. How do I know not. But when it all comes out in the light of God will be revealed!
14 and everything that comes to light, is light. Therefore, states: Awake, you who sleep, arise from the dead, and Christ shall give you light.
Spiritual sleep and spiritual death is close to one another. It is very much like to draw down as a believer and one is hard pressed. It is only by being filled with God that will prevail.
15 Be careful, therefore careful how you live, not as foolish persons but as wise,
We have a very easy to make us friends with darkness. There is hardly any family in this country that is not affected by the divorce curse and many other negative things. But it is the word of God which is our guideline about the let down, even in our immediate circle of friends and family.
16 so you buy the right time, because the days are evil.
Sermon on the Mount parts of our Lord as the offense of how we can get hold of the eternal values.
He conveys how we as Christians can prioritize our time just learning to put our trust in God and not be so concerned with what we can provide to get out of our lives to their own advantage, through all our efforts and hustle.
I do not mean by this that we should stop working and get some strange dreamers. No, we will be working and taking care of our belongings. But to guard our hearts for a setting of "much more".
"Gather ye not treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and thieves break in and steal."
"But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and thieves do not break in and steal."
"For where your treasure is, there will your heart be."
"No one can serve two masters. For either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will stick to the one and despise the other. You can not serve both God and mammon."
Mammon is an Aramaic word for money and wealth. So when Jesus says you can not serve mammon, so it does not mean you can not make money, or own wealth, but that we should guard us, no money and wealth own our hearts.
In verse 25 He says: "Therefore I tell you: Do not worry about your life, what ye shall drink, nor for the body, what ye shall clothe you with. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?"
26. "Look at the birds of the air: Do not sow, nor reap they, nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more than they?"
In verse 33 comes as the solution to how to prioritize and still get what we need to make a living, "Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and ye shall receive all this as well!"
Consider the promises we have. But we forget so quickly, and are so easily consumed by that which is here on earth, and often follow this world's values and standards and ways of doing things. And in the midst of all that we forget the real and eternal values.
But then it's important that we remember the words of Jesus: "Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and you will get everything else as well!"
May the Lord help us in this busy time to buy the right time, because the days are evil as the Bible says. But God is good and God is faithful. If we draw near to Him, He will draw near to us. He will not abandon a single one of us!
17 Do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord.
There is an admonition to that is an elaboration of the previous one. "Watch therefore carefully at how you live, not as unwise men but as wise, as you spend your precious time well, because the days are evil. Do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord. "
Again, it is encouraging that the Scripture is estimated that children of light may be wise, even if there are good opportunities for the opposite. Not only that: The Apostle encourages us to use our common sense. "Understanding what the will of the Lord." And here we are in the middle of a neglected topic for many people. They believe, or seem to expect the mind should be on the shelf, at least when it comes to the things of God's kingdom.
Not so in the Bible! "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all thy mind" (Matthew 22.37). Certainly we should not rely on our sense that it says in Proverbs (3.5). But there's not that we should not use it. The apostle has taught us that we should take "every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ" (2 Corinthians 10.5).
How can we use our common sense? To grow in knowledge, yes, but knowledge transformed into practice, to walk to the joy of the Lord. And no one will "understand what the will of the Lord", you leave out the amazing (I do not like this to the commonly used word, but can not find anything better) tool God has given us the Bible: "All Scripture is breathed by God and useful for teaching, reproof, guidance and education in righteousness, so that man of God may be fully equipped for every good work "(2 Tim 3.16 to 17). (End of quote).
It appears more and more to me that Torp sleep and the sleep he and like-minded sleeping is dangerous because it brings both himself and like-minded people to destruction!
Leprosy of sin
Leprosy is a picture of sin when leprosy also infected and destroy, just as sin does.
"Unclean!" A heart-rending cry rang through the air - a cry that only vaguely portrays a tragic human fate. Few can understand the profound pain - yes, gnawing frustration and hopelessness - that lies behind these four letters: flight. Each of the letters describes a concept of the suffering that came with the dreaded disease leprosy - a very common disease in the Middle East in Biblical times.
O outcast - When diagnosed with "leprosy" was set, the victim was excluded from all contact with family and friends. The priest had declared him unclean, and this he had to announce.
R-despised - When the cry "unclean" could be heard, people drew back with horror and disgust. The disease was highly contagious - no one would come near a leper. It was a gruesome sight - the disease literally ate the body and limb for limb was consumed. The air around the poor victims seemed to be plagued.
E-lonely - MPD reality has hit a new victim: No more a loving embrace, not a kiss or even touch. It does not matter if it is a promising young genius, a new mother or a father and dependents who are affected. King or pauper - the verdict is the same, inflexible and hard: Loneliness is from now on their life partner.
Ruthless - It was a little hopeful future for the one who was afflicted with leprosy. The disease was seen as God's wrath and judgment - as punishment for sin and injustice. To show compassion to someone who was affected by the judgment of God, was mildly seen as weakness. As if that was not enough to lose the compassionate support and care, I felt it affected also abandoned and rejected by God. Anxiety and guilt tormented soul. Relentlessly, they were given over to decay and destruction.
In Matthew's gospel, we encounter one of these outcasts. He is equally hated, lonely and bereft of human compassion and grace like other lepers, but a glimmer of hope has penetrated into his troubled soul. He has got wind of a new teacher. This teacher is apparently not as the other religious leaders. He cares for even the outcasts. Rumour has it that he not only preaches a message filled with hope and virtue, but he spirits and lives what he teaches. He is love in action. He bends down to help those who are bottom of the ranking list. He cares for the whole person - physical as well as the spiritual. A strong desire forms in his mind: Oh, if only I could meet this man! But how?
The leper is ordered to stay away from the cities and the beaten track, where he can get in touch with people. He is located in the forests and plains. One day he hears, however, sounds, talking and laughing, as if it is a great human mass moving down from the mountain. He sees the procession in the distance. A hope lit in him: What if it's the new teacher! He included as the crowd comes closer, hoping his growing and confirmed - this is his chance of a lifetime!
The man knows the priest's strict ban on dealings with other people. He knows he has to disclose his condition plagued with the cry, "Unclean!" He knows the "clean" will shudder when they hear the cry, and shrink from this damned soul with horror. However, all precautions and restrictions that are vanished. Embarrassment and shame is forgotten - he has a goal in mind: Jesus.
People scream and shrinks as they are was the leper's presence. But he is calm. He knows the pain, despair - and the growing hope in this outcast figure. He knows that he is hungry for a loving touch. And as faith displaces man's desperation in the pleading cry: "Lord, if You wish, You make me clean." - Jesus reaches out and touches him. "I will," said Jesus with sonorous voice, "Be clean!" Love - so heavenly, compassionate and pure - flows through the man. Soul and body are cleansed.
Jesus asks the man to show himself to the priests, to offer the sacrifice he himself had given orders to centuries past. Jesus had not yet died as the true sacrificial lamb, and the old covenant sacrificial laws still applied. While the people of Israel were in the wilderness, God gave them detailed instructions on various ceremonial sacrifice. Often we read through these sections with boredom. To us it seems like a bloody nightmare - the symbolism gets lost in all the bloodshed. It seems grotesque and absurd.
It was awful - it was bloody ... And it was the intention that they should see it that way. Jesus wanted them to understand the sacrifices ugliness of sin. For sin requires life - "without shedding of blood there is no forgiveness." (Hebrews 9:22). We can praise God for Jesus' blood that is shed "once and for all", so we do not "need to carry out daily sacrifices" (Hebrews 7:27). He came "not with the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood, He went into the holy place, once and for all, having obtained eternal redemption" (Hebrews 9: 12) We can praise God that there has been "a repeal of the former commandment" - a sin offering, peace offerings, blood and pain - and that "a better hope is inserted, and by this we can get close to God" (Hebrews 7: 18-19). We can praise the Lord that we can come directly to Jesus - that we can "reach the throne of grace with boldness, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need." (Hebrews 4: 16) We can thank the Father that "Jesus Christ, His Son cleanses us from all sin." (1 John 1:7).
Leprosy - such a striking image on the ugliness of sin, as we all are affected. "All have sinned, and have lost the glory of God." (Romans 3:23) We all need to be cleaned and carry out a purification sacrifice. Praise the Lord - for the better hope which is entered through the new covenant, we do not shed blood. Yet the Old Testament prototype invaluable lessons for us. Let's get through the bloody surface, and discover the beauty of cleansing the victim of leprosy.
Take me to the 3rd Genesis, the 14th chapter. Here we get a glimpse of cleansing our friend, the leper, went through:
He took with him "to live, clean birds, cedar wood, scarlet yarn and hyssop" to the sanctuary. One bird was killed over "an earthen vessel with living water." The living bird, and the additional items were dipped in the blood, which was then sprinkled on the man seven times. Then the bird let loose in the wild. This was the first part of the ritual.
To complete the purification he should carry out a guilt offering. The minister should fail the blood of sacrificial animals "on the right earlobe," "the right thumb" and "the right big toe." Then the priest lubricating oil on the same body parts.
And what's so beautiful about it?, You might ask. Let's crack the codes symbolism.
The two birds beautifully depicts what Jesus went through for our sake: Death and life are inextricably linked. We see the association through Jesus' blood that brings forgiveness, and His resurrection and the life of our Savior and Redeemer.
"But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities. The punishment was in Him that we might have peace, and by His stripes we are healed. "Isaiah 53:5
"Therefore He is also the power to complete the salvation of those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them." Hebrews 7: 25
Death and life - as inextricably linked. Without Jesus' death, there was no hope of eternal life and glory. Even if it meant pain, joy and immortality were born out of this pain:
"But Jesus answered them by saying:" The hour has come when the Son of Man should be glorified. Verily, verily, I say to you: If the grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it just left alone. But if it dies, it produces much fruit ... And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all tim Me. "Gospel of John 12:23, 24, 32
As Jesus hung dying between heaven and earth, his mission seemed to die out with him - from a human point of view. But from a heavenly perspective, was the seed about to shoot up - the seed from the dead seed that would provide a rich harvest of human souls.
The bird was killed over an earthen vessel with living water. In the Bible, humans are portrayed as earthen vessels in the Master's hand:
"Behold, as the camp is in the potter's hand, so are ye in mine hand," said Jesus (Jeremiah 18: 6).
So who is the living water that will drain in clay pots?
"Lord, thou hope of Israel ... the fountain of living water." Jeremiah 17:3
"Jesus said ... "But whoever drinks of the water that I give him will never thirst. But the water that I give him will become in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life. "Gospel of John 4:14
Jesus wants to be a living reality in our lives - the living water that fills the empty clay pots. Those who are willing to be emptied of self, and let Jesus tax beam out from their lives, taking advantage of the atonement of Jesus blood that flowed for them at Calvary. His death and life becomes a part of their experience:
"But we have this treasure (Jesus' glory) in earthen vessels, that the tremendous power to be of God and not of us ... And always, we bear the Lord Jesus died with us in body, for the life of Jesus may be manifested in our bodies. For we who live are always handed over to death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus may be manifested in our mortal flesh. "2 Corinthians 4:7-11
Cedar wood, scarlet yarn and hyssop were also elements of purification.
After his serious violations, as David himself as unclean - as terminally ill as a leper - and he longed for Jesus' cleansing touch. Note that he draws from the symbolism of cleansing ceremony in his famous prayer in Psalm 51:
"Cleanse me from sin with hyssop, and I am clean. Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. "Psalm 51: 9
Through the prophet Isaiah, Jesus comes with a call to his people on a similar purification:
"Wash yourselves, purify yourselves! Get your evil deeds out of my eyes. Cease to do evil! Learn to do good! ... Come now and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow. If they are red as scarlet, they shall be as wool. "Isaiah 1:16-18
Jesus paints a beautiful picture of those who are willing to accept this purification:
"Blessed is the man that walk not after the wicked advice, and not in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of the scornful, but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and meditate on his law day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in its season, which has leaves that does not wither. And everything he does will succeed. "Psalm 1:1-3
The first sequence of cleansing ceremony ended with the bird that was dipped in blood, was released. Jesus' atoning-blood is the only thing that will set us free from sin's prison:
"If you abide in My word, you are truly My disciples. And ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free ... He who sins is a slave to sin ... if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed. "John 8: 31-36
The second part of the cleansing ritual purification expands on Jesus wants to do in our lives - it's a complete and perfect purification. The bird's blood was sprinkled seven times on the purified lepers. Seven is the number of perfection - there is no partial purification. Blame the victim as follows confirms this: The blood is sprinkled from head to toe.
"Jesus Christ, His Son cleanses us from all sin ... If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." 1 John. 1:7, 9
But it does not end here - when we are cleansed and freed from sin, Jesus fills us with a force that has the power to keep us clean. The oil is a picture of the Holy Spirit (Zechariah 4:1-6). As with blood, was also the oil smeared from head to toe. Jesus wants to fill us completely with His Spirit. Grace not only has the power to purify, but also to keep us clean:
"For God's saving grace to all people is evident and this grace teaches us that we should deny ungodliness and worldly lusts and live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present age, while we await the blessed hope ..." Titus 2: 11 -13
"So have you taken it as belonging to their former conduct, the old man, what is being corrupted by the seductive desires to renew their minds by the Spirit, and you have put on the new man, which after God is created by righteousness and holiness ... do not do God's Holy Spirit, whom you were sealed to the day of redemption. "Ephesians 4: 22-30 (See also Gal. 5:22-25, Rom. 8:1-4)
Jesus is willing to touch us as He touched the leper man. He longs to give us the full purification is described through the cleansing ritual. Beautiful, hidden treasures - the deep lessons - is hidden in these exemplary ceremonies, rituals and sacrifices. Let's look past the bloody surface, and assimilate the lessons - the perfect cleansing Jesus offers. Let us not only to receive purification, but let us live in it. Let us accept the Holy Spirit to a life of victory! If a person repents, it is to get forgiveness, but not before. Scripture teaches clearly that it is re-married living in adultery and must either live single or be reconciled to his first wife. The fact that a preacher does not care about this and other endorsement of such preachers testify that the dropout rate is so prevalent in the church that we have Laodicea church!
Luke 16 18 Whoever separates himself from his wife and marries another woman, he commits adultery, and whoever marries a woman divorced from her husband committeth adultery.
1. Kor. 7. 10 The married I command, yet not I but the Lord, that a wife should not separate herself from her husband, 11 but she is separated from him, then she vedbli to be unmarried or be reconciled herself with her husband - and that a man does not to separate himself from his wife.
A little sin destroys the body Kristis
That does entertain Emanuel Minos do not see the danger here to open up too bad so did the Apostle Paul.
This is from my commentaries from Galatians 5 9 A little leaven leavens the whole batch!
That's when it gets shaken at this fully, in one way or the other context, that it happens that Paul describes here.
It is sometimes an infested limb must be cut off to save the rest of the body. One must be "hard to himself" here, m.a.o. Scripture speaks of taking captive every thought in obedience to Christ, and tear down imaginations and every high that rise up against the knowledge of God.
And then the apostle writes here about this that had come into the Galatian:
"This persuasion did not come from Him who called you." V 8 It is not like what you have learned to know God's salvation!
I have learned to know God, that was like fire to me. And you also, if you live with God today. You know him by law. Could you live with him? He was to life? No, you were depressed, anxious and restless. He was so wrong. One was somehow not on speaking terms with him. He met you only with questions:
"Have you prayed today? Have you read? Have you witnessed to someone? Are you living as a Christian? Do you love me, really? Is your heart right with God? "Etc. on your side wanted to be a Christian, as far as you understood, but he was not happy with it. You should practice! Not only would! You should be obedient!
He was to life? Was it that you ever looked yourself in the Lord? Sure, you could well feel a certain pleasure and satisfaction, the times you thought it had succeeded to some extent, but looking forward to you some time in the Lord? It is the believer's strength! Neh. 8.10. No, you went where so heavy and groaning under all the requirements that were put into you. And the same requirements you lived in, put on your medvandrere.
No, he was certainly not up to life, but he was to death! And wherever you meet this God, who presents to you an unfulfilled law, he takes pleasure from you, giving you death and grief and despair instead! You are under the law! Under the curse! And you have seen that even in freedom, what do you want with this God? What do you expect? Is it not rather so that every time you meet him, as you fly over to the God who has revealed Himself in the Gospel? Some seek God as He reveals Himself in the law and the state of unrest and inner conviction of his sin as the cause. For this is for them to confirm that they live with the Lord, so that they "mourn" their sins. What they do not understand is that they only have the wrath of God to do! The only peace the time they are away from God. They live with God's wrath as it is revealed under the law, this is also the faithful know well, and that causes them to fly into the gospel.
The truth is the fact it, that this act God, who also is the true God, is unable to save you.
10 But the Lord gives me the confidence in you that you will think differently than I do. Anyone who confuses you, will get his judgment, whosoever he be.
That they had received and had the effect of the second example, we read on in chapter two that there was "strong" as brothers also had led the Apostle Peter and shaped applying the son Barnabas. When even such nice brothers could be misled, so can we. 1. Kor. 10. 12 Therefore the person who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall. (End of quote)
The leaven is a picture of sin that the leprosy is, destroy, permeates and brings death on his way, this we are helping to open up by permitted sin in the church. Israel tried that several times, we read about Achan brought defeat to the church. All gjengiftede preachers and all others living in sin as a believer is like Achan the church of God, therefore it is also occult and demonic to allow sin in the church.
The parable of the leaven of the biblical prophecies of the major John F. Walvoord
(Matthew 13.33; Luke 13.20-21)
Christ also used leaven as an illustration when he spoke about this era in his parables: "The kingdom of heaven is like leaven which a woman hid in three measures of meal, everything was imbued" (Matt. 13.33). It was common practice in the Middle East that took some of the dough that was previously fermented and had the new dough, so that fermentation was spreading. Here, Christ used this as an illustration of the heavenly kingdom of nature. Most interpreters, influenced by postmillianismen, a view that dominated so strongly in the latter part of the nineteenth century and early part of the twentieth century, believes that the leaven of the gospel is being spread in the world. But the idea that the leaven is the Gospel, is a captivating misinterpretation, as the Scripture always in connection with the leaven otherwise refers to something that is contrary to holiness. It represents evil. In the Old Testament spoke the unleavened bread of God's holiness, and one should beware of having leaven in it. But when it comes to the professing church (Luke 13.21), the yeast mixed in, as the professing church contains an element of evil. Just as leaven the dough to swell and thus make it bigger than it really is, without adding value, it is a false teacher. It was the Pharisees setting, Sadducees and Herodians unbelieving secularism. All this served to inflate the religion, while in reality it was all about evil powers (Matt. 16.6 to 12; Mark 8.14 to 21). Also in the letters signifying evil leaven (1 Cor 5.6 to 8, Gal 5.7 to 10). The fact that there is no harm in both the true church and in the professing church, is clearly expressed in Scripture and provides the basis for many admonitions and reprimands. It is therefore far better to interpret the leaven that this evil element in the professing church. The evil has permeated the church.
But it is strange to some who live in sin, that the said preachers. They always have to attack someone else or they are gay, or some like me who reveal their sin. Why not get the beam out of his own eye, so that one can be spiritually and mentally normal, and like Jesus?!
