  • 1 TIMOTHY 1 To Bob H on Colossians 1:18
    that thou mightest charge some that they teach no other doctrine,

    Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than GODLY EDIFYING which is in faith: so do.

    Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:

    From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling;

    Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.

    But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully;

    I've been around 7 months; almost every day. Your learned, know many things; but frequently if not daily you display the same arguments. That do not follow with what others are discussing in the room.

    It is centered around exposing, disgust against Jewish worship , hatred of ancient Jewish practices, condemnation, You accuse them regularly for crucifying Jesus regularly, etc.

    Enough. We've heard this every day. It is unedifying for anyone. You are an educated scholar to be sure, BUT I do not perceive the Holy Spirit's approval on this kind of "preaching" every day. I think you could use your knowledge of the Bible to help people that come into this room with real questions about other subjects; about life; how to study the Bible.

    This is NOT how the Holy Spirit teaches. I'd be dead with the wicked dead if it was. The Holy Spirit comes alongside. He CONVICTS the sinner of sin so he is able to repent and pray for forgiveness. Holy Spirit does not bludgeon the sinner into submission! He is the express Love of Jesus Christ. He Teaches mysteries so we can understand why everything that happened with Jesus as

    Happened through prophesies.

    What you teach is not like Jesus. He said to heal the sick, cleanse the leper's, proclaim liberty to captives: preach the GOSPEL.

    You don't do that. Please change. We love you no matter what. I do.

    So who said this and to who was this directed to?

    Bible book of John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

    45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.

    46 Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?

    47 He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.

    48 Then answered the Jews

    Then answered the Jews

    Then answered the Jews

    pretty obvious who Jesus called of their father the DEVIL. Obviously not all of them

    So is Jesus is an antisemite?

    It was Jesus who condemned, not me.
