    Yes, and a Prophet also cursed children who were then mauled by bears - that IS scripture. Holy Tradition ought not to be disregarded when it makes us uneasy.

    As for "church history" - when we...

    I was a bit surprised by not observing communion two weeks in a row - it's uncommon for us, but not unheard of I guess. I was just in a place where I felt I needed it. Our presentation form the...

    Just home from seeing 'Joker'. Quite an excellent but disturbing film. Joaquin Phoenix deserves an Oscar for this one.

    Importance of observing Communion

    Headed for service in a few minutes. Due to work commitments I'm unable to attend four weeks at a time (four on-four off). I look forward to returning, anticipating participating in Communion. This...

    I've agreed with you that the Law cannot forgive. However there's disagreement about what the Law actually refers to. The Law points to our sinful nature, and the fact that sin is in the world. We...

    Lamm, we cannot do these things AT ALL! We NEEDED Christ to come, die, and rise again. The Holy Spirit in us enables us to act, however imperfectly.



    I'm sorry you see things this way.

    Hey Josiah! I don't think Lamm and I are as far off with one another as we think. I chopped off a bit of your post above because the last part got to where I was going. Some don't know Christ as 'The...

    And how do you respond to that?



    Not at all. The Gospel of Christ is filled with his example which he left for us, not to fulfill perfectly - he was the only perfect Son of God. But he did send...

    So the command of God Himself to "go and do likewise", what shall we do with that? And it was a command - no conditions were attached to it. No qualifiers. It is true that we CAN'T "do likewise" in...

    And there is grace. The man is not left to find it on his own. Neither is the expert in the law. "Go and do likewise" - where does Christ qualify this with "but you're not able"?

    Being half dead, where is the 'hammer' that Christ used in the parable? Did he call the wounded man a 'viper'? A member of a 'wicked and adulterous generation'? Did he fashion a whip from cords and...
