    Hi and read Gal 3:28 for it also answers those who were " in Christ before Paul as Rom 16:7 says !!

    #1 , First , those in Christ were not in the Body of Christ and THEIR was not yet a Body of Christ and most say REDEMPTIVELY they were in Christ !!

    You would have to say that all saved Jews were then in the Body of Christ and would have to PUT all Jews are in the Body , BUT Gal 3:28 TRUMPS that , for there are no JEWS in the Body !!

    The concept of their being in Christ before Paul is one he often touches on and its idea is always the same - its the idea of the Cross' Two-Fold Redemption - Prophecy and Mystery.

    Theirs is Acts 3, Pre-Romans 11 (BEFORE Israel's Fall), and the Body's is Romans 3, Post-Romans 11 (AFTER Israel's Fall).

    Just as the Body's PHYSICAL Redemption is Romans 11:25, followed by theirs per Romans 11:26 at some point AFTER the Body's.

    Both Spiritual redemptions and both Physical redemptions are made possible IN what Christ accomplished BY the Cross, Acts 3 and Romans 5.

    Is the Vine from the four gospels the Body of Christ?

    There was no hope for old Saul.

    You silly, silly MADs.

    If you would only drop all this divisive man-made dispensationalism and quit majoring on the minors, and realize that the Bible merely contains the word of God but isnt the Word of God, and stop worshipping Paul, Jesus will come back and unite us all in one big happy church so we can go put and kick some heathen butt for the glory of God.

    Quit blocking God's bridges, as a wise man once said!
    "There is one thing worse than going to Hell. That would be going to Hell and having it be a surprise."

    [most will be very surprised]


    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?

    I know, we should be more ecumenical.

    Yes you should. You need to get your head out of those epistles and get back to the parts of the New Testament that Jesus wrote!

    They've always scared me, because I know I cannot follow the red letters. Even as an unlearned child, I knew I could not follow them.

    That's a good deal. Less than I paid John Avanzini.

    2 Timothy 4:8 (KJV)
    What does 2 Timothy 4:8 Have anything to do when Paul was saved? What Day do you think Paul was talking about when he receives his crown? Also at what point of time do you think Paul received the Holy Spirit?

    8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

    It could refer to his appearing(s) to Paul.


    Acts 26
    16 But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee

    I think the day referred to in 2 Timothy 4:8 is the Last Day spoken about throughout the bible. This would be mean from 2 Timothy 4:8 that Paul has not received his crown yet.
