Or should they call themselves another name as Christ-followers? Especially do to history and the people that first started calling themselves Christians, and what they stood for, (if you know what I mean).
sort by best latest
Amen! Gal 3:28-"..There is neither Jew nor Greek,..for ye are ALL ONE in Christ Jesus."
Have u found the term "Christian" a derogatory phrase used by nonbelievers "in Antioch?"
Yes, disciples (followers) & if anointed to teach; apostles!
ALL DENOMINATIONS ARE AN ABOMINATION. GOD says we are (His children) are to be of ONE ACCORD. Just the opposite of what denominations bring.
Agreed Charlie, I mention denominations ONLY because God has His children in all of them, the 'remnant' hidden in plain sight.
But there is ONLY ONE body of Yeshua believers.
@John: I must agree! Believers r n every denomination but not "studying" prevents 1 fm "Growing" into "Truth!" This Spiritual walk is as n school; PK-1 to PhD depending on 1's x "studying" (sincerity)!
If not AFTER THE CROSS, in vain!(Gal1:6-9)
Thank you John! I tried to understand the question but the bottom line is that Jesus died once for all men and women. It is up to us to accept the free gift of salvation, regardless of race, creed or color.
Galatians 3:28 "There is neither JEW nor Greek...; for we are ALL ONE
in CHRIST JESUS."
Then Acts 2:42 LIED! Disciples of Christ = Apostolic Doctrine = Mature (filled with Holy Spirit w/"understanding" of WORD) = Apostles! (Rev 21:14)
Thank you Charlie! I needed that this mrng! I feel like Paul so many times in II Timothy 4:16 "At my first defense no man stood with me..." But THK U JESUS Jn 15:18 "hate me" = JOY & Jn 16:2 "put u out thking they did GOD a favor!" I'm BLESSED
actually the amen was to Cynthia
Sorry! Thought you agreed w/WORD!
Because it's a "Spiritual" thing & has nothing to do with "man!"
I believe in GOD (aka JESUS) according to His "Rightly Divided" Word which is diff fm "religion!" Opposition of their beliefs displays no "severe form of mind control...."
Actually, all my community has is a strong propensity to submit to authority. Its not a "spiritual" thing, but rather a blatant and vicious deception, using simple psychology. No one can make u believe outright fairytales without your consent.
Getitrite: I very much disagree with your comment. It sounds like you have blinders on and only see in a limited way. Why do I say this? Because prior to my faith I was a science major who loved psychology also. I wasn't duped into faith. I saw God.
Tamara, Like I said, we have a strong propensity to submit to authority. You cannot present any proof of the claim that you have made, therefore, it is clear that you have been directed to believe this on faith...from a perceived authority.
get: "mind control"="humble yourself" by believing & having "faith!" Deny self! I use HIS Word & have been asked on several occasions to stop!Belief="Teach!" Can't stop!
No one can make 1 blv anything, but GOD! Only exposing All to "truth
