    Poly's Post of the Month....

    http://www.theologyonline.com/forums...d.php?t=107020

    Good thread, oatmeal and great way to not only just quote the scripture but then go on to explain it in great detail.

    Pathetic, and not surprising.
    Jesus saves completely. http://www.climatedepot.com/ http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/

    Titus 1

    For there are many insubordinate, both idle talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision, whose mouths must be stopped

    Ephesians 5

    11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret

    Am I missing something? He denies Paul was given a dispensation of grace for us.

    That's pretty much what I got out of it.

    Everyone who has not believed the Gospel of grace is not saved, no matter what else they believe or do.
    By that measure, how many professing Christians are on their way to the Lake of Fire?

    yep! that's what I read.
    2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

    Paul defines the word of truth as the gospel of your salvation (1 Corinthians 15:1-4 KJV, Ephesians 1:13 KJV). Now, study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed by rightly dividing it!

    I thought Poly was a MADist, or at least a Trinitarian.

    He is also a denier of the Trinity. But I didn't see that mentioned in this post; surprisingly.

    I think Poly, being unaware of his track record, did not understand the meaning behind the words and filtered them through her own beliefs, thereby getting something for herself out of it.

    Oatmeal is of Victor Paul Weirville's "Way International" cult.

    In isolated posts, he can come across as 'generic' Christian.
    It would be easy to misunderstand his overall perspective without scrutinizing his post and thread history.

    I can understand this is the case.

    However, this post gives a cultist TOL honors . . Which might be understood by readers unaware of the facts, to be a TOL endorsement of Oatmeal's wrong views.

    Especially, since Poly is an Admin giving out the honor!

    I would highly recommend Poly delete this thread.

    Although, he hasn't been entirely consistent with his anti-trinitarianism.

    Hardly,

    As many times as I have read Ephesians 3:2-6 and referenced it on this website I cannot imagine where and how you got that idea.

    Could you explain how you got there?

    As far as I know you can't get there from where I am.

    Thanks, I always enjoy the free advertising

    Philippians 1:14-18

    Keep it up. As long as Christ is preached. As long as The Way, the lord Jesus Christ is made known.

    Wow, maybe I need to learn a few things about where you are coming from?

    The Judeans and the Gentiles had different backgrounds, in part, and different expectations.

    To win a Judean to Christ would take a different approach, but the same truths, than it would take to win a Gentile to Christ.

    In that sense, there are two different gospels, for the steps to reach one group vs. the other are different.

    I Corinthians 1:21-24

    For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

    22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:

    23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;

    24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

    Note the colors indicating the two different groups, and the unity of preaching Christ

    Have you ever shared the gospel with anyone?

    Are you not aware that tailoring the presentation of truth is a useful tool to reach others?

    You are not going to teach your six year old the same as a retired college professor, nor are you going to teach an athlete the same way as a book worm. The truths do not change, but the presentations may differ.

    Judeans and Gentiles likewise have different backgrounds hence the different starting points to lead them to Christ.

    The Gospel is not to be 'tailored.'
