Re: Tithing

Darin, You wrote: Considering the focus on tithing from the pulpit..... I can certainly understand your "jaded view". My experience is the opposite. At the church we have attended for over 25 years I can't recall it ever being mentioned in a sermon. And you wrote: Many churches these days even sugge...

Re: Tithing

I think North should be commended for finding joy in tithing; that is far more than most who claim to be Christians give. Quoting Jesus without attempting an exegesis of what He meant and the circumstances of His statements may be laying a burden on a brother that Jesus never intended. Jesus' statem...

Re: Is Monotheism necessary?

But who is the "first great cause? The one before whom there is no other? And if there are multiple gods who each have their own planet (or solar system), who assigns them to their particular responsibillity? It would seem necessary that there is one who is above all others. When we go beyond script...

Seer You wrote: 1. Sean, I think for this to work for you would have to deny that "Christ and Him crucified" is a spiritual truth. At least not one of importance. I don't know if there are many spiritual truths that are more important - do you? That Christ was crucified is more than a "spiritual tru...

Worship "In Spirit and Truth"

The following is a summary of an argument in a passage in the book "A Gathered People" by John Mark Hicks, et al.: Worship of the Father in the new age will be "in Spirit and Truth". In John 4:20-21, in his discussion with the Samaritan woman, the subject concerned the proper place of worship: (All ...

Re: What is sin?

I do not believe we need any help to commit sin; we can do pretty well on our own. James 1:13-15 (New King James Version) 13. Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone. 14. But each one is tempted when he is drawn aw...

Re: Sermon on the Mount

In my opinion, we make a huge mistake if we take the Sermon on tne Mount as a rigid set of laws that must all be literally obeyed. Some of them are always to be literally obeyed and others are to be obeyed as principles as it is appropriate to do so . Who always prays in a closet? Jesus prayed publi...

Re: 1 Corinthians 2:14

It seems to me that any unbiased mind reading the first nine verses of 1 Corinthians 1 would conclude that those Paul addresses are, in his mind, saved Christians, and the exact same folks he begans chewing out in verse 10 and following. Of course if you have certain ideas that the text must be made...
