    Are you a Mormon or Jehovah witness?

    Let's face it, you're hiding a belief system that you
    don't want others to know about. A "True
    Believer" would have NO problem saying what
    church they've been to. However, a cultist would.

    I like to know who I'm posting with? A Mormon, Jewish,
    cultist, Jehovah witness, Catholic etc.

    Do you follow "Paul's Gospel?" (The Grace Message?)

    These days there's too many secretive posters that don't wish
    to divulge or Testify what they believe. That sends up a red flag!

    My experience has been, there's a majority of Nonbelievers and a minority of "True Believers" on TOL, these days.

    The "True Believers" are upfront and honest about their faith. The others, hide,
    give half answers, cryptic answers, get angry if you ask them questions about
    their faith or just ignore the questions altogether.

    ACH, I'll just write you off as being one of those, "Secretive Types" who have
    something to hide.

    or contrary to you?


    Colossians 2:14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;

    Colossians 2:15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

    Colossians 2:16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:

    Colossians 2:17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.

    The only way to reconcile it is to 2 Timothy 2:15 KJV as both of them were TO members of the Body of Christ.
    It does not appear that issue was merely that of the need for Gentiles to abstain from certain meats, rather; for them to abstain from partaking of said meats when in the presence of those that might offend.

    And this is actually the principle, or practice in general, of “Giving no offence in any thing, that the ministry be not blamed:” 2 Cor. 6:3, as applied to this particular issue here.

    Why this issue “that the ministry be not blamed”?

    Note how, in the following, although the freedom is there; so is the concern for another’s conscience, given an issue on the table here, that is of much of greater importance than the Believer’s liberty in such issues when in the presence of others -“that they may be saved” - verses 32-33, below.

    1 Corinthians 10:

    27. If any of them that believe not bid you to a feast, and ye be disposed to go; whatsoever is set before you, eat, asking no question for conscience sake.
    28. But if any man say unto you, This is offered in sacrifice unto idols, eat not for his sake that shewed it, and for conscience sake: for the earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof:
    29. Conscience, I say, not thine own, but of the other: for why is my liberty judged of another man's conscience?
    30. For if I by grace be a partaker, why am I evil spoken of for that for which I give thanks?
    31. Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.
    32. Give none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles, nor to the church of God:
    33. Even as I please all men in all things, not seeking mine own profit, but the profit of many, that they may be saved.

    Verse 28’s first word “But” is in the sense of “rather,” or “in other words.” I know this from the sense of the flow of Paul’s thought throughout, there and in chapter 8.

    I have told you before I have never been associated formally to any churchy buildings or religious organizations. Have I been in them yes. But for weddings and family events, nothing formal. I have not been secretive and I have answered your questions. I am not going to keep playing games when you ask "Are you a JW or are you a mormon?" The answer to them all is NO!

    Yes. It has always been about faith and grace. Since the beginning.

    I am not a liar. I am not involved with any religious organizations and I have never been a part of one. You will have to take my word on it. I have nothing else to offer here other than my word.

    And you define a non-believers as anyone who does not believe like you?
