Discussion for Luke 13

  • The Knight
    Oh ye of little faith, who trust in riches as a reward! Little do you know the apocalypse is at your door and the fox is in the henhouse. You have let him in for your perversions and greed. The evil one cut thru your armor which you trusted in and tear you to pieces. Oh that you were even somewhat conscious of what is to come. Your so called armor won't even save. It will make it easier for.
  • A disciple
    Cross Faith (cont.); Yes! Putting on the WHOLE ARMOR OF GOD means, THE ENTIRE WORD OF GOD! Many fantasize and pretend they have a walk with Jesus because they go to a certain church and parrot their favorite preachers' lingo; thinking that they are serving God, while their responses indicate that the Holy Spirit and sound understanding of the Scriptures is completely foreign to them and a threat.
  • A disciple
    Cross Faith; I'm sorry, I don't understand your comment; are you agreeing with what I wrote, and seek a friendly conversation, or are you assuming something else? If you like to talk about the things of the Lord, that's wonderful; and I hope we can edify each other. But if you're just another one with a churchy-spirit who is full of "another gospel" than the Word of God... How can I help you?
  • Cross Faith
    Hey disciple. I've been reading several of your comments throughout the gospels. Put on the full armor of God everyday is a great thing to do.
  • A disciple
    "Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbers it the ground?" I put these posts in, seeking discussion about the things of the Lord, and when I write to open a discussion with others, its the same; NO REPLY! Our responsiveness to the Spirit of the LORD should be out of a ready mind of love.
  • Arley3
    Romans 7:23 tells us about the law of sin. Romans 10:9-13 tells us how to be delivered (saved) from this law of sin. When you heart desires sin but your mind tells you sin is wrong, call on the name of Jesus. Ask for the experience of Acts 2. This is the deliverance. Acts 2:16
