Discussion for Matthew 22

  • Servant of the Living God
    Does any here understand? Those who were bidden to the wedding were they not evangelicals who could come because they were busy with politics. He without the proper garment was a wolf in sheep clothing. Many are called but those who sanctimoniously claimed to be saved will be outside the gate gnashing their teeth. Woe to those who seek to keep the poor and disenfranchised without a voice. Woe
  • A disciple
    The "foolishness of preaching" WHAT? The cross of Christ! It is foolishness to the "wise" of the world, and weakness to the "mighty" and proud of the world; but to us who are saved; both Jews and Gentiles, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. And it cannot be by anything but the Word that the Spirit convicts men to repent and believe in Jesus: NOT by human wisdom, but by the Spirit!
  • Bruce
    disciple:For the Preaching of The Cross is to them that perish Foolishness but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.it pleased God by The Foolishness of Preaching to Save them that Believe. 1Corinthians1:18-21 People We need to Study His Word,for False teachers will speak evil of The Way of Truth. 2Peter 2:1-2.
  • A disciple
    Steve; All we have to do is walk in truth in Christ, and the light in us will antagonize those who hate the light. They will lie against us, and work against us from out of the Churches; because they know not the Father nor Jesus. They will call us proud and accuse us of every evil thing; while they themselves are still sinning and in gross doctrinal error, that NO ONE can snap them out of it.
  • A disciple
    Faith comes by hearing THE WORD OF GOD! This "tug on your heart" is such a watered down and misrepresenting of the truth! The Holy Spirit CONVICTS men of their sins, because we are unfit for God's presence until we are reconciled, washed and cleansed, and made new men in Christ; BY THE WORD OF GOD, not man's words; and certainly not by the easy kind of spurious OTHER Gospel, which is taught today!
  • Bruce
    disciple: I said a lost person doesn't need to know one Word of The Bible to be Saved. Are you saying they need to be a Bible Scholar? The lost come to Christ by The Foolishness of Preaching. The Holy Spirit will tug on Their Heart. Not Knowing One Word of The Bible They can ask Forgiveness. Is He Tugging on Your Heart?
