46  Theology / General Theology / Re:Who Is Your Apostle? on: November 28, 2003, 11:12:33 AM
Amen Ollie and Reba,

"In reading this, then, you will be able to understand my insight into the mystery of Christ, which was not made known to men in other generations as it has now been revealed by the Spirit to God's holy apostles and prophets.
This mystery is that through the gospel the Gentiles are heirs together with Israel, members together of one body, and sharers together in the promise in Christ Jesus."

Anyone claiming to have Paul as his Apostle would not be claiming to have Paul as his Apostle if they really had Paul as his Apostle, because Paul, that is, the Apostle, told us specifically:

"I appeal to you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another so that there may be no divisions among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and thought.
My brothers, some from Chloe's household have informed me that there are quarrels among you.
What I mean is this:

One of you says, I follow Paul; another, I follow Apollos; another, I follow Cephas; still another, I follow Christ. Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Were you baptised into the name of Paul?

There it is in black and white... so to speak.  Wink

Oh, and in case you plan on dumping "volumes" of anti-tongues propaganda into the thread then know this: everything not verified by scripture should be accompanied by a "this is only my view"- kind of comment. All the rest will be automatically classified as garbage.

Any takers?

millions believe like me, I believe the Word of God.

Sort of like a Berean, I suppose?

Small point, but... why does someone who claims to believe the "Word of God" need to cut-and-paste from other peoples theology? Isn't the Word of God enough?

Did the Bereans cut-and-paste? Did they surf the internet to find theology to support what they had already made their minds up to believe? Did they try and defend their church doctrine against this new and controversial teaching. No, they had open minds, but followed up by looking into the Word of God for confirmation.

The good name and reputation of the Bereans is being defiled today because people are using it to justify their own fault-finding attitudes. But the truth of the matter is that these people were not negatively sceptical. They received the message with great eagerness and verified it using the only thing on this planet that is good enough to use - the Word of God.

Cessationism rests on the basis of man-made, extra-biblical theories designed to support denominational doctrine. It is not firmly anchored in the truth but must go outside the Word to support its claims. Quoting a few verses here and there does not make it scripturally sound. It requires human effort to hold it together, and that in itself speaks volumes.



Just by the Word of God (THE BIBLE) No tongues  Smiley

many verses to prove NO TONGUES TODAY.

The question is not what you think of certian charasmatic teachers nor what "millions" believe and there is still not one single verse that proves "no tongues today". Not even one.

Hey guys, can someone pass along a few anti-tongues verses? Verses showing Tongues isnít for today, and things like that.

The real answer to your question is that there are no verses at all that support the idea that tongues are no longer for today.

A Jewish lawyer was troubled by the way his son had turned out, and went to see his Rabbi about it. "I brought him up in the faith, gave him a very expensive bar mitzvah, cost me a fortune to educate him. Then he tells me last week he has decided to be a Christian.
Rabbi, where did I go wrong?"

"Funny you should come to me," said the Rabbi. "Like you, I too brought my boy up in the faith, put him through university, cost me a fortune, then one day he too comes and tells me he has decided to become a Christian."

"What did you do?" asked the lawyer.

"I turned to God for the answer", replied the Rabbi.

"And what did he say?" pressed the lawyer.

God said, 'Funny you should come to me ...' "
