  • I think I may write a book on the Trintarian heresy .

    It's beginning and the multitudes of people that lost their lives and the so many people deceived by it .

    I have no sympathy for it .

    When you look at how moronic it is under the Holy Spirits teaching , it just shows how much the devil can blind the minds of men .
  • ERECH CHRIST NIMROD on 1 Corinthians 6:19
    "Your body is the Temple of the Holy Spirit which is in You, which You have of God." You are Healed by God in You. You are Safe in this falling world due to God in You.. Man's inventions such as 5G, or the stock market, or man's corrupt government cannot save You!!! Only God in You can Save You. Do not get caught up in this world's evil distractions. Dive Deeper into God in You. Study. Sending You Father God and Christ's Tough-LOVE. Amen.

    Barbara, the only clear reference we have on this issue, is found in Leviticus 19:28: "Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD." And this was one of the many commands the Lord gave to Israel for living a proper, God-fearing life.

    Some would use that verse against those today who have taken up the 'fashion' of tattooing & piercings, though it wasn't the intention of that command from God as in those days it would have been done for recognition of "the dead" & other occultic purposes (verses 26 & 31). So, whether God looks at the present day markings as sin, only God can declare that.

    However, other issues come into play here for the Christian: as you said, we are no longer our own but now the purchased of God & Temples of the Holy Spirit. As well, whenever we do things, such as these, the clothes we wear, the places we visit, the people we associate with, what we fill our minds with & many more, are matters that every child of God has to seriously consider as we live on this Earth & bear witness to His Name. If the believer is walking in the Spirit, he/she would soon know in his/her spirit, how he/she should live before God & others. Personally, I find it difficult to believe that a Christian could honestly justify tattoos & piercings as of little godly consequence & consider it a thing of beauty before the Lord. It smacks of vanity & desiring to be identified with the crowd. We are to identify ourselves with our Saviour & to walk carefully & humbly before our God (Ephesians 4:17).

  • Paul Ivie on 1 Corinthians 6:7
    Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

    10Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

    11And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

    Praise God we have been washed clean by the precious blood of Jesus and are now totally sanctified, justified & redeemed because of the death, burial & resurrection of Jesus Christ.1 Corinthians 1:29-30 29 so that no one may boast before him. 30 It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God-that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. Galatians 2:20 King James Version (KJV) 20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. That is what Christ has done for us, in us and who we are in Jesus Christ. What Glorious Salvation.

    Yes Paul, Praise the Lord, and to continue please read Matthew 24:11-13.

    11 - And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

    12 - And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

    13 - But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

    Matthew 10:22

    And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

    What does he who endureth to the end mean?

    But he that endureth to the end, the same shall be saved.

    But he who goes through to the end will get salvation.

    But he that has endured to the end, he shall be saved.

    But he that shall endure to the end, the same shall be saved.

    But those who stand firm to the End shall be saved.

    But he who endures to the end, the same will be saved.

    Praise God, Thank You Jesus.

  • Paul Ivie on 1 Corinthians 6:16
    What does 1 Corinthians 6:18 mean?

    In the Greco-Roman, idol-worshiping culture of Paul's day, sex of all kinds had been normalized for nearly everyone. That included prostitution, adultery, pedophilia, homosexuality, and so forth. Growing up in this environment, it's not surprising to think some of the Christians in Corinth had trouble seeing sex outside of marriage as a big deal. Paul has spent this chapter showing why avoiding sexual immorality is so essential for believers.

    Now he gives them a strategy for dealing with it: run. He tells them to flee from sexual immorality. Run away like you are escaping from something that might harm you, because it will. Even if the culture despises you for it, it's better to escape from sexual sin than to be conquered by it (Genesis 39:7-12).

    Paul shows that sexual immorality is different from other kinds of sin because it's a form of self-harm. We might commit other sins with our bodies, but sexual immorality unites us sinfully with another person. This happens on a deeply physical and spiritual level. We will experience the natural consequences of that sin at that deep level, as well.

    It's important to note that Paul did not write that sexual immorality is the worst of all sins, as we sometimes conclude. Instead, he is combatting the casual attitude toward sexual sin carried by some Christians in hyper-sexualized cultures. In addition to hurting others, sexual immorality contributes to our own deep pain. It's no more or less a sin than any other, but human cultures tend to treat it more casually than other errors. Galatians 6:7-16 King James Version (KJV) 7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. Now please know that I believe that every sin is forgiven by God through Jesus Christ & his atoning death on the cross. I John 1:9 KJV

    c. Lastly, on KJV worshippers. Personally, I don't consider myself as such but do admit in taking the KJV translation very seriously simply because of my desire to not err when reading & understanding both the historical & spiritual message of God's Word to mankind. Since this is such an important matter to us: after all we didn't ask to be born, but we're here now & only have threescore & ten years or so to live on this Earth & therefore must be prepared for eternity in a relatively short time, I would hope that each person who believes in the afterlife & accountability to their Creator, would want to ensure that the message to them comes from the most reliable source. And though I'm heavily reliant on those who have studied this matter of the veracity of the many Bible translations we have as well as on those learned folk who've gathered & translated from the original texts, I have to, in all good conscience, accept the translation I deem correct & in harmony with all Scripture. I never implore anyone who reads from another translation to switch to the KJV, but would be prepared to defend the words & truths contained therein. I think in this day & age, when God-consciousness & accountability has been replaced with temporal unsatisfactory worldly offerings, if anyone insists reading from another version, I would be so grateful that he takes that road rather than dwell in ignorance.

    b. Actually, those missionaries involved in Bible Translation work can use the KJV in their projects. I'm familiar with the ministry of Wycliffe Bible Translators knowing a few (now, elderly) folk still involved in some way with their target people group. In many cases, where there is no script for them to work with, these translators have to also develop a script, along with learning the language - no easy task & a work that can go on for decades before the Word is produced in the tribes' language. So, in your example of a people group unfamiliar with 'snow or the feeling of cold', the translators have to develop another word or imagery that conveys the meaning. So, in fact, there would be Bibles produced for such folk that vary markedly from what we have now in English, simply because biblical Truths need to be conveyed to the sacrifice of the original, accurate words. So, Exodus 4:6 "leprous as snow" could be translated "a sickness turning your skin as the colour of the clouds". Or, Proverbs 25:13 "As the cold of snow in the time of harvest" could be translated "as a refreshing drink in summertime".

    Dr. Burgess, thank you for your questions regarding the great value we place of the KJV Bible. As you will understand, I can't give you a full answer here as it would go well beyond the limitations of such a Site as this, but you no doubt, would have already done some other research. As well, we don't get to see your email address which we can personally respond to; you should however, get an alert from KJB Online to your email address that "someone has responded to your comment". So to your questions.

    a. Indeed, the KJV isn't the oldest translation and yes, there were older Manuscripts available at that time. However, when King James commissioned the leading biblical scholars (approx. 47 translators) to translate the Bible at the behest of the Puritans, he wanted them to be accurate & consistent with the original texts, yet to conform to the ecclesiology of the Church of England. Hence, in 1 Timothy 3:1 (& elsewhere), the word for the Gk. 'episkopon' has been given as, Bishop, which should have correctly been translated, Overseer. It was never the intention of Apostle Paul to have such appointments in the Church, but simply, Elders & Deacons. But that aside, these KJV translators had found a number of errors from those 'older' manuscripts (from the Alexandrian text: Textus Vaticanus & Textus Sinaiticus). Even when compared with each other, the Alexandrian texts varied by as much as 3000 separate 'disagreements' just in the Gospels. So the 'later', & deemed more reliable & faithful to the Textus Receptus, (from Erasmus' five manuscripts & to which even later manuscripts gave support to and also from the original Masoretic Text, for the O.T. translation), was the Authorized King James Bible born. We can't consider all the differences between the RSV, NIV, etc. with the KJV, since they are many (e.g. Isaiah 7:14 "virgin"; Luke 2:33 "Joseph"; Acts 20:28 "Blood", are just a few changes or omissions).

    How do we line up to this confession of faith?

    "We believe and confess that God has ordained power & authority, & set them to punish the evil, & protect the good, to govern the world, & maintain countries & cities, with their subjects, in good order & regulation; & that we, therefore, may not despise, revile or resist the same, but must acknowledge & honor them as the ministers of God, & be subject & obedient unto them, yea, ready for all good works, especially in that which is not contrary to the law, will, and commandment of God; also faithfully pay custom, tribute & taxes, & to render unto them dues, even also as the Son of God taught and practiced, & commanded His disciples to do; that we, moreover, must constantly and earnestly for the prosperity of the country, that we may dwell under its protection, earn our livelihood, & lead a quiet, peaceable life, with all godliness & honesty; &, furthermore, that the Lord would recompense unto them, here, & afterwards in eternity, all benefits, liberty, & favor which we enjoy here under their praiseworthy administration."

  • Andy G van den Berg on 1 Corinthians 6:13
    On 1 COR. 6:9

    The Word of God is God (John 1:1) and not for any private interpretation (2 Peter 1:20). If it records in Revelation 12:9 that this whole world has been deceived, it did not speak of a particular country, group of people, person or religion, it meant the whole world.

    For a better understanding and the 'spiritual truth' what it means to repent, and learn how and by whom (2 Corinthians 11:13-15) this whole world has been deceived and what mankind must do to be reunited with the true and living God, we invite you to seek Him according to the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive (Matthew 7:7; John 14:17).

    The word 'Repent' in different forms (repent, repentance, repented, repentest, repenteth, repenting), is mentioned 110 times in the KJV, and there seems to be a great misconception what the true 'spiritual' meaning of the word is. The word 'repent' used in the New Testament was translated from the Greek word "metanoeo", and means to change, transform, to think differently or reconsider.

    Only through Repentance will God be able to reveal Himself, and adopt you as His sons and daughters (Romans 8:15,23; 2 Corinthians 6:18; Galatians 4:5; Ephesians 1:5; Hebr. 12:5; 1 John 3:1) and reveal to you how this whole world has been deceived (Revelation 12:9) and overcome this world (1 John 5:4).

    The word 'Repent' means a lot more than what people by nature have been conditioned to believe. It is the key principle of all the teachings of Jesus Christ and the axiom (basis) of the Word of God and a prerequisite and primary requirement for the salvation of mankind. It means the changing of spirits - to turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18).

    It is only by revelation of God that people will come to know the true Christ (Daniel 12:4,9; Amos 3:7; Matthew 16:17; Luke 2:26; Romans 16:25; 1 Cor. 2:10; Galatians 1:16; Ephesians 3:3,5; Revelation 1:1). It should be remembered that it is a narrow way that leadeth unto 'Life', and few there be that find it (Matthew 7:14).

    On the subject of baptism, must a person be baptized to be saved?
  • BAPTISMS - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 6:13
    John the Baptist performed Water Baptisms as a statement of repentance from the new believers. They were accustomed to animal sacrifices, etc.

    Some people really need or want to be publically water baptised in their Church. It's an occasion for everyone to celebrate.

    It is not a necessary act in order to be saved.

    Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 6:3

    6:1 The unjust - The heathens. A Christian could expect no justice from these. The saints - Who might easily decide these smaller differences in a private and friendly manner.

    6:2 Know ye not - This expression occurs six times in this single chapter, and that with a peculiar force; for the Corinthians knew and gloried in it, but they did not practise. That the saints - After having been judged themselves. Shall judge the world - Shall be assessors with Christ in the judgment wherein he shall condemn all the wicked, as well angels as men, Matthew 19:28 and Revelation 20:4

    6:4
    Them who are of no esteem in the church - That is, heathens, who, as such, could be in no esteem with the Christians.

    6:5 Is there not one among you, who are such admirers of wisdom, that is wise enough to decide such causes?

    People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 6:13

    Commentary:

    Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats. Self-indulgence was also excused, because food and the stomach were made for each other. But these are both perishable.

    Moreover, if "the belly was made for meats",

    the body [is] not for fornication. It was not made for this, but for a nobler purpose--for the Lord. Hence, sensuality cannot be thus justified.

    What happens in a marriage is between the couple.

    For Singles: Paul said it's better to marry than Burn. 1 Corinthians 7

    Everybody else who is unmarried, like me, have the time to be involved in ministry of some kind or another. It doesn't have to always be through a Church. There are many civic organizations, school activities outside. You can google around and see what volunteer activities are going on despite the pandemic scare.

    You'd have to take a short course for it, but suicide prevention centers still need volunteers.

    We're all gifted in many ways.

    It'd be a good time to get your feet shod for taking the gospel of peace. We all know enough about Jesus to tell someone else how to be saved. Think about it :)

    Water baptism isn't a issue really. if they receive Jesus; you can pray for the baptism of the Holy Spirit on the front porch.

    The worst that might happen is they'll say "I have something on the stove", and they don't come back. It's just simply doing what Jesus and his disciples did. Not complicated at all.

    I have a story of a person I knew before he passed on. His neighbor along a fence line came to him angrily that the man's dog had over night killed the angry neighbor's chickens. This man was extremely sorrowful that his neighbor had such a loss and immediately settled with the angry neighbor and the matter was closed. Later that day the man had several memories of his old dog that had died several months back.

    The Body, The Church of believers rightly Baptized by members proving their born again repentance experiences and their peace with God and man will walk faithfully without perversion with the law or with the world in it's earthy ways of handling matters. If we as members choose to walk separately of the Body to handle matters of the world for our own lusts we fail the Body and have lost our place in our Spiritual everlasting habitation like the fallen angels. The Body must be kept pure and the ways have been described in the epistles. Jude warns of "turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness" and he reminds us of the first estate of the angels, "but they left their own habitation". This habitation was the Body. This same Body has been renewed in Christ Jesus as a Bride and this Body will be joined with Him in a marriage that is ever lasting. We as Christians no matter the personal cost must act within the Body to remain Holy and at Peace. In this presentation we will be a light and witness in the great darkness of this world.
  • Carleton - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 6:13
    As a member of the Body of Jesus Christ, Living within this Holy Place there is freedom, a lack of condemnation, love, peace and joy. Members of the body one man and one woman can be married and joined as one. A home. Within this home in the order of God there are liberties. A man and wife in the Lord can please themselves sexually without fear as long as there is no outside influence on their minds. Outside of this Holy Body is lusts and all kinds of pride. One part of the membership of this Holy Body is to guard against outside influences coming within the Body. This starts in a husband's and wife's life and together in their home. They can teach their children to listen to the call to salvation in the Lord while protecting them from outside influences. This can be in the smallest details such as language including cover words. Children will learn from their parents how to back up and say in one's heart they are sorry that they did such in such like raising a voice for example. The Christian home within the Body should be peaceful, separated, holy, undefiled just like the Body which is part of Jesus.

    The speed of moving images in the modern age is unholy and needs to be considered in all things. Fast moving images of the things of man find their way into our minds and hearts and dull the vision of Holy lives. If we are honest we know this is happening and we want deliverance but there is deliverance in self denial of watching such images of mankind.

    Within the Spirit led life of a husband and wife and home there is direction for each matter encountered, therefore hope.

    The Body is a place of rest and hope. It is a gathering of Saints, a washing of Saints, a calling for Saints and this gathering, this Holy Body knows no boundaries no borders no particular race or culture, it only knows Saints that have been once delivered from the bondage of sin outside of this Body.

  • Carleton - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 6:13
    The question of many believers may be: Is this Body of believers visible? I believe the answer is yes, it will likely be found where there a great love of the brethren, possibly including the Holy Kiss, feet washing and for the sake of the Body and the correction of an erring member (by love and for the purpose of restoration) of the Body, discipline under the guidance of the epistles.

    For the vile person will speak villany, and his heart will work iniquity, to practise hypocrisy, and to utter error against the LORD, to make empty the soul of the hungry, and he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail.

  • Onyekachukwu Ogechi Levinus Alaka on 1 Corinthians 6:20
    Paul now concludes his teaching on why it matters that Christians run away from sexual immorality. His final point, begun in the previous verse, is that Christian people do not belong to themselves. We have been purchased by God. We are free in the sense that we have been freed from the law of sin and death (Galatians 3:13), but we are not free in the sense that we are now self-owned and self-determined (1 Corinthians 6:12-13).

    If we are truly in Christ, we are truly not our own. Our lives, including our bodies, belong to God. This gives Him the ultimate authority to tell us what to do and what not to do with our bodies.

    It's important to notice something about this last argument against sexual immorality. It applies only to believers. Only those in Christ have been redeemed by His blood and brought from darkness to light (1 Corinthians 1:12-13). These words are not for those who remain in darkness. Paul is not commanding those outside the church, unbelievers, to live according to God's standards for sexual morality (1 Corinthians 5:12). Their sin is still sin, but one cannot expect them to recognize it as such (1 Corinthians 2:14).

    Rather, it is those who belong to God-and not to themselves-who are commanded to glorify God with their bodies. In fact, only those in Christ have an opportunity to use their bodies to bring glory to God. In fact, that is now the purpose our bodies are designed to serve.
