    Tell ye, what is the Name of Jesus Christ? For his Name shall be called Jesus as he is the Deliverer, sent by God. And he is certainly the Christ, the Son of the living God. Yet, what is the Name of the only begotten Son of God? For how can a man call on the Name of The LORD if he does not know his Name? Or how can a man be saved if he will not confess the NAME of The LORD JESUS CHRIST?
  • A disciple
    Steve M; It is not a wicked heart which has departed from the LORD, who expounds the Scriptures and the Doctrine of God with wisdom of the Spirit teaching! If I speak not according to the Word, show it! But if I do teach what the Teacher has taught me so that I should "feed His lambs and feed His sheep; why does that offend you? Judge righteous judgment and put away envyings and strifes!
  • A disciple
    Steve M; "These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so." What things? The words that the Apostles were proclaiming and teaching in the Name of JESUS CHRIST; which they had not up to then heard nor understood! Except we receive them as a little child we cannot be saved!
