  • Brianna vs. 23
    Insightful! Some religions teach that you must suffer or hurt your body in order to be pleasing to God, this scripture helps us to reason. It is through an accurate knowledge of God's word that our body can be brought into subject. God's word touches our heart and motivates change. We can fast, mark,deny,ourselves but that may not be necessary. Allow God's word to motivate change, not pain.

    COLOSSIANS 2:8 --- BEWARE --- LEST ANY MAN SPOIL YOU THROUGH PHILOSOPHY AND VAIN DECEIT AFTER THE TRADITION OF MEN AFTER THE RUDIMENTS OF THE WORLD AND NOT AFTER CHRIST 1 THESSALONIANS 3:8 for now we live --- if you stand fast in THE LORD ---
  • A disciple
    BSP; An interesting point is how the Word which was from the beginning ever had to be kept a secret. Understanding the history as recorded in the Scriptures shows that it was the rise of the heathen and Antichrist, which conspired to break the bands asunder and cast away the cords of God with men, that turned the common faith and all the hope of man into something to be concealed from view.
