Jesus told the Samaritan woman (and I think we have a similar pattern today) that we worship Him in Spirit and Truth. I'd think, given the current atmosphere, I recognize a few things. 1) Relative truth of our Westernized culture has us reactionary so of course "Truth" is emphasized 2) That I think we do ostracize 'Samaritans' and likely should be a bit more conversant and understanding toward "Spirit (relationship)." The Pharisees, for all Jesus told them they were to be listened to, were no better off, so your value here is a needed call to both of us and all to worship God in Truth AND Spirit. Thanks. -Lon
Not a problem and I will endeavor to explain anything if I use it. Some English words are simply a transliterated loanwords from Greek to English. "Baptiz[O]e is a Greek loanword transliterated (given an English alphabet from closest sound from Greek alphabet) from Greek βαπτίζω
I would like to thank whoever it was that paid for a subscription on my behalf. That was a very kind gesture. I pray it will make some kind of a difference that will encourage me to stay with the forum awhile longer. It is sometimes tough to take. Having said that, I hasten to add that there is none better, irrespective of much untoward freedom of expression that exists. So, thank you to whomever it was who thought I was worth the investment. . . .
Thank you very much for your message, I don't always care to listen to tapes and vids but using the very means and principles spoken about in the message "let the peace of God rule in your heart" I did listen, I'm very glad I did.
I have added it to my TLO comes to TOL thread. We ARE on the same thing, that's what was troubling me, that IS my life style, I DO live by faith of the inner Christ life.
It is that which I am seeking to share on TOL....but I did not earn it, it all is a thing given to me since I was saved. so thank you very much....I am sorry that we have rubbed up wrong...God bless you
Thank you, Cedarbay and likewise to you. re prayers: Please do keep me in your prayers as I will you. For such a time as this we need more brothers and affirmation in His righteousness. Thank you for your friendship. . ))
Thank you. I saw it and smiled.
My argument with you is that you are in denial. The scriptures do not say what you would have them say and yet you persist. I don't understand that kind of closed mentality which borders upon being a worship of doctrine. It is so blatantly irrational of you to make complicated what is not complicated.
