Discussion for Matthew 27

    A Disciple - Many of us are like Judas we feel remorse for the evil we have done to others but not repentant towards God. It's the disposition of heart. We will do well to learn from David in Ps 51:4 "Against thee, thee only, have I sinned and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest .." Judas preferred to die for himself he didn't want Jesus to die for Him.

    Lu2677 - Here are some of the essential Christian doctrines: a) The deity of Christ Jh 8:24,58; Ex 3:14; Heb 1:8 b) Salvation by grace Eph 2:8-9; c) The Resurrection of Christ 1Cor 15:14-17 d) The Gospel Jh 1:1,14; Rom 1:16; 1Cor 15:1-4; Gal 1:8-9 e) Monotheism There's only one God Ex 20:3-6 Isa 43:10; 44:6-8. I hope this will help a little.

    Disciple - we go over and over the same scriptures because after a few days this site removes them and 'later' ones on here don't get to see them. There are people on here sincerely looking for answers - and they are getting various answers to the same needs, BUT - it's God will show them His answers, amongst them all.

    What are "fundamental doctrines"?
  • A disciple
    Reading Matthew Henry's Commentary is very edifying. It makes me wonder how hard it is to find, that Christians today can have a meaningful discussion about the things of the Lord. I wonder how much some have us to keep going over and over the same fundamental doctrines of the faith and trying to expound the sense and meaning of the Word! For the lateness of the hour, we ought to be farther along.
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    Thank You Lord for enduring all these for us.
