Discussion for Mark 7

  • Henry Nelson
    Henry: I believe that this is still the gravest difficulty, danger, and difficulty in what makes up the true church and the false church every generation since Christ: Often times those in leadership have set up man made ideas, philosophies, theologies and traditions that actually makes God's Word, Way, and Will to not affect even to those who claim to be part of His disciples!

    And they bring unto him one that was deaf, and had an impediment in his speech and they beseech him to put his hand upon him. I had a impediment of speech until I was about 10 years old. One day riding with my Dad on a large sled with bales of sugarcane, being pulled with our mule. I fell off and a stub or stick sticking up in the ground went into my mouth and split my tongue. N I spoke plain.

    Jesus is God, and makes no mistakes because He Knows All Things! It shows that by healing the gentile woman, God is no respecter of persons...
  • JP
    Jesus Christ came to save the house of Israel to fulfill the law and prophesy first as the Word of God clearly says, but this greek woman was a gentile and Jesus saw her faith in him and he blessed her by answering her prayer. Jesus Christ is God and cannot make a mistake.
  • Obbie Beal
    1-5 we learn of 'customary practices' of /by church-folks; church-folks elevate such 'customary practices' above the COMMANDMENTS OF Jehovah /GOD; GOD is concern with SALVATION plus verse 20, 21, 22, 23; in 2019 the world has proven to GOD they will have nothing other than 20, 21, 22, 23; now the ball is in GOD's hand /court and the world SHALL see what play /move GOD will make (READY or Not).
  • Obbie Beal
    20 And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man. 21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, 22 Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: 23 All these evil things come from within, and defile the man. (Jew or Gentile this verse applies to the heart of both)
