pertaining to judging needs to be addressed properly and we
do this by reading the word of God.
Jan J you often quote from the Kingdom
Gospel which was not written to you but was written for your
learning. Recall Jesus came for the Jews but they turned
against him. Jesus did not come as your king. He sent Paul
and we must follow the teachings of Paul. That does not mean
we don’t follow the risen Lord.
spoke he spoke to the people following him and listening to
him. His audiences were mostly Jewish.
through the below and check me out and study to show
quote 1 Cor 2: 15-16 regarding the mind of Christ. Then you
add your own interpretation by saying quote (So if we have
the mind of Christ, it was Christ who said “Do not judge.”)
1 Cor is not speaking of Christ's mind in this way. Recall
Christ comes to judge the world which is
have the mind of Christ.
“mind” is the seat of consciousness, the faculty of
perception and judgment. To pronounce false what God
reveals to the believer is to pronounce false the
“mind of Christ,” Christ’s perception and judgment.
The believer has the mind of Christ because he has the
Bible, the revelation of
The believer has the capacity to make
judgments about the Bible because he is in tune with
the Word of God.
The believer has the
capacity of understanding inspired books of the Bible
because the Holy Spirit illumines his mind to do so.
The Holy Spirit will guide us into all truth. The
believer must first understand truth before he applies
truth to experience. He has the ability to apply truth
to his experience because he has the “mind of Christ.”
He does not flop around in his convictions but stands
firm on what he believes.
quote from Psalms regarding touching Gods annointed. Psalms 105 verse 15. You also
give an idle threat to Rene to contemplate the verse.
Interesting you use a stern warning. We should NEVER use
this tone on the Brethren. We must act in love.
The lady you are both debating over Is
a false teacher and very much a confused lady to say the
least. I shan’t go into that matter. I have
judged her according to the written word of God.
However, When God spoke of the prophets
not being harmed or touched God was not speaking of so
called (writer does not accept prophets are for today)
modern day prophets. He was referring to the prophets
who came before Christ. It’s not my opinion
or yours that matters; but what God’s Word have to say about
this that really counts? I certainly wish the people
that repeat this phrase would read it in its context, 'the
Lord's anointed', is a reference to the kings of the
nation of Israel (1Sam. 12:3,5; 24:6,10; 26:9,11, 16,23; 2
Sam. 1:14,16; 19:21; Psalm 20:6; Lam. 4:20). The mention
of prophets, is a reference to the patriarchs
(Psalm 105:8-15; 1Chron. 16:15-22). It is used exclusively
in the Old Testament.
THE WORD DOES IT SAY WE MAY JUDGE.
though people will tell us that we should not judge, the
Bible makes it clear
that we should. The following examples show where the
Apostles exposed error:
Paul named and spoke against certain men in 2
Tim. 2:16-17, 2
Tim. 4:14-15 and 1
Paul publicly corrected Peter, a fellow Apostle, in Galatians
Leaders caught in false teaching or immorality are to be
as 1 Tim. 5:20 says.
examples make it clear that we must judge and publicly
expose error and, if
necessary, discipline those who are in sin. The salvation
of souls and purity
of the church depends on this.
you be blessed with this reading.
