    Irene123 I'm sorry sweetie, but you're wrong when you say that Jehovah translates to Jesus. The ONLY references to the name Jehovah in the Bible appear in the old testament before Christ . It is made clear that Jehovah is GOD'S other name. I'll leave them here in case you or anyone else would care to take a look for yourselves. Genesis 22:14, Exodus 6:3, Exodus 17:15, Judges 6:24, Psalms 83:18, Isaiah 12:2, Isaiah 26:4 I pray that everyone has a blessed day. Thank you Lord God for the wonderful gifts which you have so generously bestowed upon my family and I. Everything that I do is done in your name, for you and to glorify your name.

    Do not presume to begin your comment by telling someone they are wrong. The chapter shows rangling and disputing and such discussions when in truth? It is God's position to correct someone if they are writing words which go against the truth of God's word. Then you will get off on a discussion of who is more knowledgeable or who has had God use them. Let God correct...and every man a liar.

    Dear Brother Steve Morrow; You always post the Scriptures; and we know that there's nothing that can be said or done against the Word. But many; whether through ignorance or misteaching, or through hatred, hostility, opposition and contradiction; put forth everything conceivable INSTEAD OF CHRIST and His Glad Tidings. The LORD grant us good judgment what to say and how to say it as the Lord sees!

    Titus 1:16 They profess that they know God but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate. We will know them by there fruits.
  • Irene123
    V. 7 - " ..... though we be as reprobates." This confused me at first, until I 'reasoned' it out. We who believe the truth of Jesus are 'reprobates' to the Jews (Pharisees, Sadducees, etc.), not reprobates to the truth. To the unbelieving Jews we have left the God of the O.T., but we haven't - Jehovah is Jesus of the N.T. The name Jehovah translates to Jesus, Acts 2:37-38, 4:12.

    We must continue to examine ourselves to make sure we are in the faith. We need to compare our words and actions with God's standards sat out in the Bible and see whether we measure up.
  • Chris
    Your comment sounds dangerously close to a "works for salvation" message. God saves those who trust in His Son to the uttermost. We may wander off the heavenly path, but our faithful Father will seek us out, and never forsake us.
  • Joshua for verse 8
    The truth of the word of God cannot change
  • Anne
    Paul warns the Corinthians of his coming and that they should examine themselves to see if they are living right and displaying the fruits of the Spirit. If they are in right standing with God then they would know where he stands. He encourages them to remain faithful and to believe in themselves even though others may see them otherwise.

    Corinthians changed into christ

    after chapter 13 I have found that to just have faith is not enough . Our bodies must be clean of everything . I still have one more thing to go before my mind and body are ready to be a temple . I know that our savior lives and one day we shall all see him in his glory .

  • Mark V for verse 2
    It says backsliders will be punished! So stay true to your oath you make to the Lord. Yes it takes a lifelong discipline, so keep the faith my brothers and sisters and pray for one another.
  • Ubong Johnnie for verse 5
    Examine yourself if you are truly in the faith. Let me share with us two things on how to know that you are still in the faith 1. The holyspirit of God will undoubtedly prove to you in your heart that you are. You dont need to think am i still in the faith?. If you are, the holyspirit will be glad and will not hesitate to let you know that you are still on the right ground. But if you are not, that 's when you will start to contemplate and ask yourself "am i still in faith????? " 2. The bibles says greater is ye that is in me than ye that is in world. If you are in the faith, nothing can stand befor you as a barrier. Everything including demons and even Satan itself will be afraid of you. This is because they know who you are. I finally pray to God that you do no evil not that you should appear approved, but that you should do that which is honest, though you may appear and others may think you as a reprobate. God bless you.
  • To test whether we are in the faith, we have to measure our conduct in the light of what we learn from the bible. To prove what we ourselves are, we have to evaluate the level of our spirituality, including the sharpness of our perceptive powers and the extent of our works of faith,

    Examine yourselves and see if you are still in faith brother paul adivised.Yes often times we mix up the natural with the spiritual bringing the two together which causes a lot of problems as we are not always in the spirit most of the times we are over taken by the flesh thats why we need to re examine ourselves and return back on track with God 's word. We are also called to be perfect and be at unity and live in peace with one anorher even with holy kiss as brother paul adivised showing we need each other always to run this race no one can stand alone those who are strong need the weak perfecting each other. As we do his will may we graciously continue to run with the word of God in lJN Amen.
  • Mark Rasbury
    Verse 8 We don 't have to defend the truth we should just have to desire to give the gospel to people who needs it. God doesn 't need body guards to prove Himself. His word is complete. If someone doesn 't want to listen they will not listen. We just plant seeds and go on. It should be a passion for Christians to want to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
  • Robert Benson for verse 5
    You try and test judge yourself by JesusChrist who is the living word of God Jesus the mirror to you soul let s you see yourself to be real or an impostor faker God s love through the Holy Ghost reveals your motives So with the mouth the mouth speaks and the heart believes Come who wants to
  • Bro. Bobby R.
    Just wanted to hit on repent(repent here is get saved then follow the LORD in believer's baptism) Baptism can and never has saved anyone.) repentence after we are saved is one thing repenting and changing your mind about the LORD JESUS and calling on him to save you is another 2nd tim 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.A good greek concordance, not mans comentary will simplify repent (love you all in CHRIST)

    II Corinthians 13:5 “Examine yourself, whether ye be in the faith, prove yourself:
    - Do you enjoy spiritual fellowship with God, with Christ, and fellow believers (1 John 1:3, 4). Neglect not assembly.
    - What is your attitude toward the world and its values (1 John 2:15). Love not the world.
    - Are you obedient to the commandments of the scriptures (1 John 2:3-5).
    - We know him because we keep his commandments.
    - Do you have the ability to discern between spiritual truth and error (1 John 4:1-6).
    - Do you live sinless now since you have professed faith in Christ (1 John 3:5, 6).
    - Do you fall to temptation (1 John 1:5-10).
    - Do you believe the basic doctrines of the faith (1 John 5:1). God so love the world. Have you experienced persecution for your Christian faith (John 15:18-20). They hated Jesus.
    - Do you love other believers (1 John 3:14). He that loves not knows not God.
    - Do you have the inner witness of the Holy Spirit (1 John 4:13). Our spirit bears record with his spirit.
    - Have you experienced answered prayers (1 John 3:22).
    - Do you love Jesus and look forward to His coming (1 John 3:2, 3).

    I love this, Repent and be baptized everyone of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of your sins. Acts 2:38 not in the title Matthew 28:19, there is no power in a title, only Jesus’ name.
  • Markg
    Verse 5 tells us to exam ourselves to see if we are on the faith. The faith...that God has all power! The faith in Jesus Christ that He suffered, died for your sins, and is coming back for you.
    Repent and be babtized
    Read Psalms 51...make it your repentive prayer.
