The truth is in the Holy Bible. Some people only accept partial truth. Some people become offended at the truth. Some people hate the truth. Both the Old and New Testaments are truth. The truth shall set you free (John, chapter 8). The Lord Jesus said he is the truth, and the life, no man can come to the Father except through me (John, chapter 14). Examples of Truth: be perfect as the Father is perfect (Matthew 5:48), Apostles and prophets are the foundation of the church (Ephesians, chapter 2), The Lord Jesus Christ gave the doctrine of all churches to the apostles (Acts, chapters 2, 3 and 4).
As christians and saints, we should being willing to accept the truth. Be persuaded by your own mind. The truth will liberate you and please God. The Holy Bible says, "If you be willing and obedient, then you shall eat the good of the land. A-men
This is a timely word. People nowadays has divided the Word of Truth like splitting hairs with a sharp blade. God's truth seems to have to compete with everybody's opinion. It seems people think the bible is open to debating and scrutinizing or politics trends. Its become a stadium where every one thinks the TRUTH is what THEY say it is.
I thank God for you. I am Apostle Riley, a servant and officer of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Too many people try to figure out God. Too much theology!!!! God's ways are too high for man. We must learn to accept and obey the Word of God at face-value.
Lastly, there are too many versions of the bible. God only authorized King James to have His Word translated. Watch out for diluted bibles for they are not the Holy Bible. A-men
Too much man's understanding , not enough God's Word took at face value. Im tired of people saying the bible is out dated and we can't apply the Old/New Testament to now. The lying devils. They don't want to apply the word not cause they can't do it. Look at some of the comments from luke warm, watered down Christians on this site, men and women, sounding like bible experts one minute, and the next admiting they not sure what salvation means. How can they run their mouth and don't know what they talking about?
This is a good start to your discussion. Do you reccommend a standard Bible Concordance or any kind of teaching aid?
Sis Deidre is right about some of the comments. People want to put scripture in box or go off what they think its saying. Like God don't know what he meant to say.
tHE bIBLE SAYS SOME OF THEM ARE BLIND LEADERS LEADING BLIND PEOPLE. THEY WILL FALL INTO DITCHES.
TOO MANY DIFFERENT VERSIONS OF THE BIBLE HAS CAUSED ALOT OF CONFUSION. APOSTLES AND PROPHETS MUST START CORRECTING THESE WICKED LEADERS. A-MEN.
YES, I RECOM MEND THE STRONG CONCORDANCE AND THE ORGINAL KING JAMES HOLY BIBLE.
ALL SERMONS SHOULD COME FROM THE HOLY GHOST- NOT FROM BOOKS, INTERNET OR FROM YOURSELF.
Good word, Apostle Riley!
Brothers and Sisters:
We all need to pray that the Holy Spirit bring a fresh wind of revival to the Body of Christ. Saints need to be totally committed to the Gospel in this age and it starts with us cleaning our own houses. Let's call right - right, and sin - sin. Can we all just get back to that too?
Luke 3rd Chapter
Preachers have stopped preaching in fear for the collection plate or displeasing the masses. Treating the Gospel like its an outdated school text book. Some of these popular ministers are too sophisticated and intellectual now, they want to be considered hip, and cool, they want to be acceptable to the media's cameras and microphones. They are saying we can't take the Gospel of Jesus Christ literally no more BECAUSE ITS TOO NARROW MINDED!. Shame on them and us if we don't call this idolatry and harlotry out for what it is. We'll all have to answer to God for not standing up in righteousness. He wants and decrees a church, . . without SPOT OR BLEMISH, . .
If we are members of his body, how can we offer him less than what he commands? Peace to you all and God bless you.
