All of the rhetoric, singing, instrument playing and acting is imposing the BURDEN Jesus died to remove.

Said I "said someone was under the influence of Lucifer because they disagreed with me."

I think someone has a reading or bias problem.

I don't think that the owner of the forum pays any attention to the forum.

Most of those who moderate--especially the ones who take liberty to yank your post--and black ball you I would not call liberal. A liberal is a bible student who just doesn't believe it. I think we have denominational preachers who are the moderators and are violently opposed to about anything you post if you post Scripture in context.

It assuredly has no relationship to the Biblical and historic Church of Christ which survived the attack thinking that to be a christian one had to accept everyone. I noticed that a few people have been so attacked by multi-culturism that they are ready to tell people to go home if they don't want to be french.

Of course,if you don't let people infiltrate and divert you into THEIR religious culture you are victimized by lots of RACA words.

If you are blackballed you cannot even READ the magazine. So, I have done a bit of update on my review especially Ephesians 4 which outlaws all of the performing arts and artists and then described the church whose pattern is 'a school of Christ' say the Campbells and all of the Bible.

One of the articles I am not permitted to read is "Jesus Drank Wine." I will do a review on that blasphemy.

The "inclusiveness" gets exclusive when you post the Biblical facts.

You said someone was under the control of Lucifer just because they disagreed with you. Personal attacks like that will just get you permanently banned. Last chance.

Of of course that is a lie.

GCMF promotes: "101 reasons why baptism does not save."

The method is to look up all of the "saved" words and use them to force the Bible and all early history to lie.

1 Pet. 3:20 Which sometime were disobedient,
............ when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah,
............ while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is,
............ eight souls were saved by water.

FAITH means NOT arguing with God! They were saved IN the Ark and saved BY the Water because THAT is how God planned to do it. If Noah had whinned, we would ALL be Cainites or Kenites who DID survive the flood.

Of course, they were saved by GOD but not WITHOUT faith, obedience, getting into the COFFIN (not a boat) covered with blood-red bitumen inside and out, and was high and dry while the OLD MAN OF SIN was drowned. Remember that Peter said SAVE YOURSELVES from this CROOKED GENERATION. That points to the perverted skolion new wineskinners.

They were saved BY the Water because the water DROWNED "sin" and lifted them OUT or ABOVE the waters which drown.

Baptism is like God, the Ark and the Water: it was given POWER by Faith which worked. God's power is always VESTED in something.

Heb 11:7 By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet,
............ moved with fear,
............ prepared an ark to the saving of his house;

............ by the which he condemned the world,
............ and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.

Baptism is "TYPE or a MODEL of FORM intended FOR IMITATION." It involves, God, faith, obedience, being placed IN the coffin, being saved BY water because THAT is how God planned it and since I AM NOT GOD I will not be caught "dead" calling Him a liar.

1 Pet. 3:21 The like figure (Antitupon or Antitype counterpart) whereunto
............ even BAPTISM DOTH ALSO NOW SAVE US
............ (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh,
............ but the answer of [Appeal FOR not PLEDGE] a good conscience toward God,)
............ by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:

............ But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin,
but ye have obeyed from the heart that form (tupos a model for imitation) of doctrine
which was delivered you. Ro 6:17
............ ............ But now being
............ ............ made free from sin, and
............ ............ become servants to God, ye
............ ............ have your fruit unto holiness, and
............ ............ the end everlasting life. Ro 6:22

2 Thess 3:9 Not because we have not power,
............ but to make ourselves an ensample unto you to follow us.

Christ The Spirit appeared to and let Paul hear His voice to equip him to be guided into all truth.
Paul was told to "be baptized and WASH AWAY THY SINS.
How did baptism wash away Paul's sins? It was the Christ-ordained way to "call upon the Name of the Lord." A person who trusts THEIR power to believe something and rejects baptism DOES NOT even want Christ to wash away their sins. That is why OBEDIENCE tampers with a false view of grace and, as I posted the WORDS OF JESUS CHRIST makes one a believeth-not or APISTOS which lowly says "I WILL NOT comply with the Jesus formula that Believeth + Baptism saves. If you deny that promise of Grace, Christ in Isaiah and Jesus in person says you WILL BE DAMNED. That does not call the ANTI-baptism posters under the influece of Lucifer: they are SELF-willed and will not even have Jesus order them about.

How does baptism saves. The Flood, Red Sea, and the pattern of Jesus Christ the PIONEER of our faith were types.

Tupos (g5179) too'-pos; from 5180; a die (as struck), i.e. (by impl.) a stamp or scar; by anal. a shape, i.e. a statue, (fig.) style or resemblance; spec. a sampler ("type"), i.e. a model (for imitation) or instance (for warning): - en- (ex-) ample, fashion, figure, form, manner, pattern, print.

When you OBEY that Form or Type, you do not trust YOUR own faith:

Anti (g473) an-tee'; a prim. particle; opposite, i.e. INSTEAD or because of (rarely in addition to): - for, in the room of. Often used in composition to denote contrast, requital, SUBSTITUTION, correspondence, etc.

1. We are baptized by GRACE instead of having to build an Ark or drown
2. We are baptized by GRACE instead of having to cross the Red Sea or be destroyed by FAITH ONLY when God said "Quit whining, lift up your arm and MOVE into the jaws of death.
3. We are baptized by GRACE instead of having to be pinned on a stake and shed OUR blood.

When you have to EXPLAIN AWAY what the text MAKES CLEAR you may have exhausted God's Grace.

Maybe YOU can be SAVED without the REMISSION OF SINS (connected only to baptism) but I DON'T THINK you can go into the Most Holy Place wearing DIRTY CLOTHES. Paul says we are saved BY FAITH when we are BAPTIZED to be CLOTHED with Christ. Then we have A holy spirit translated into heaven WHEN we are added to the CHURCH which is AFTER we have been baptized.

To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all,
............ and to the Spirits of just men made perfect, Heb 12:23

That is A holy spirit promised after baptism or A good conscience of 1 Peter 3:21.

Ken - This piece is decent but to be honest is a downer compared to other recent ones. Your second best recent message was the one I replied to where you quoted several paragraphs from Homer about worship and music. Fred is interested in reading all there is from Homer. However your best recent piece was another that I replied to about your Biblical message on and connecting Eve's Sexual Seduction, Instrumental Worship and Sacrificial Orgies. That one will be hard for you to top.

Thanks for the compliment but I think it is all blubber!

If you would name the DISTINCTIVES of The Church of Christ you would include.

1. There is ONE God the Father in heaven and Jesus of Nazareth whom God made to be both Lord and Christ. Therefore, all that we know about the Father has been Revealed by the Son and therefore the "fullness of Deity dwelled in Him bodily.

See Alexander Campbell: the Trinitarian System

http://www.piney.com/Trinitarian.System.html

But in the second place, I have an insuperable objection to the Arian and Calvinistic phraseology--

On the doctrine of the first relation existing between the Father and the Saviour of Men, because it confounds things human and divine, and gives new ideas to bible terms unthought of by the inspired writers.

The names Jesus, Christ, or Messiah, Only Begotten Son, Son of God, belong to the Founder of the christian religion, and to none else.

They express not a relation existing before the christian era, but relations which commenced at that time.

To understand the relation betwixt the Saviour and his Father,
which existed before time,
and that relation which began in time,
is impossible on [333] either of these theories.

There was no Jesus, no Messiah, no Christ, no Son of God, no Only Begotten, before the reign of Augustus Cesar.

The relation that was before the christian era, was not that of a son and a father, terms which always imply disparity; but it was that expressed by John in the sentence under consideration.

The relation was that of God, and the "WORD God." This phraseology unfolds a relation quite different from that of a father and a son--a relation perfectly intimate, equal, and glorious.

This naturally leads me to the first sentence of John. And here I must state a few postulata.


On the other hand: The Progressive Church of Christ subscribes to Tritheism which is polytheism.

By denying the ONE GOD the Father in heaven.
And Jesus of Nazareth whom God MADE TO BE both Lord and Christ, they deny this Divine Father-Human Lord and John identifies them as ANTI-Christ.
The chatter answering Jimmy's questions probably was too much for the modulators to tolearte since they are Nicean trinitarians.

2. Consistent with all historic scholarship, the assembly is A School of Christ first defined as The Church of Christ in the wilderness both inclusively and exclusively.

http://www.piney.com/Synagogue1.html

The "Progressive Church of Christ" appeals to the curse of the sacrificial system and the Levite Warrior Musicians making a loud noise during a not-commanded burnt offering to insist that God commanded instrumental praise and you must not disobey. This sees the assembly as a worship service which in the Hebrew is defined as "hard bondage."

See Edward Fudge prophesying the Death of a Distinctive. Of course, the only way the distinctive of NOT using "machines for doing hard work" when Jesus comes to give us REST so we can learn of Him cannot happen with the DEATH of those who have never fallen into this terminal folly.

http://www.piney.com/Fudge.Death.Distinctive.html

Dwayne E. Dunning proposes taking an Axe to the position.

http://www.piney.com/MuDunningDownen.html


3. The Church of Christ is "distinct" that it has never changed from the historic fact that baptism was FOR the remission of sins and those who "believeth not" or "refused to comply" would be damned.

The Progressive Church of Christ denies the prophecy of Christ and the prophecy made more perfect by Jesus Christ that there are as recently demanded "101 reasons why baptism is not necessary to be saved."

The Grace Centered Magazine insists that to use the Apistos or believeth not word to mean people simply refuse to comply and are defined as treacherous is accusing those who differ as under the influence of Lucifer: not so, they are under the influence of their own rebellious nature. I have quoted the PATTERNISM defined by Christ in Isaiah: those who REFUSE to be washed will be DEVOURED: Interesting in that Jesus called the Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites in in Ezekiel 33 named performance preachers, singers and instrument players: that is the ONLY literal meaning of a hypocrite. And the performers DEVOUR the living of widows doing pretense rituals.

http://www.piney.com/GraceCenteredReview.html

That means that the Progressive Church of Christ has no relation to the historic Church of Christ.

4. All historic scholarship and the Church of Christ does not IMPOSE in the services anything which has not been commanded and which does not contribute to the "school of the Bible for DISCIPLES of Christ."

Nothing can raise more wrath than quoting the bible in context. The progressive church by definition has moved beyond "the sacred page" and see visions and hear voices.

All of the rhetoric, singing, instrument playing and acting is imposing the BURDEN Jesus died to remove.

Said I "said someone was under the influence of Lucifer because they disagreed with me."

I think someone has a reading or bias problem.
Grace Centered Magazine says that there is nothing in the New Testament which says

"There is nothing in the NT saying that we must have authorization for everything done in the assemblly or in expessing praise to God. Those who preach that there is, are preaching from Reformation creeds instead of Scripture."

Norton Posted this along with the usual personal attacks therefore I conclude that GCM and its modulators or throttleators simply do NOT want people to spread hate by posting any rebuttal:

I posted and they DEposted while still lying about my posts and mocking all Bible quotes.

* Disciples have obeyed the Gospel and been baptized
* Only Disciples can be called Christians.
* Christians as disciplle will not accept any dogma imposed on them if Jesus Christ has not commanded it.

Mt 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach [didaktikos] all nations,

ma^tht-eu ,
A. to be pupil, tini to one, Plu.2.832c.
II. trans., make a disciple of, INSTRUCT, panta ta ethn Ev.Matt.28.19, cf. Act.Ap.14.21:Pass., Ev.Matt.13.52.


baptizING them in the name [Jesus Christ] of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

And:

TeachING them to observe all things WHATSOEVER I HAVE COMMANDED YOU:
and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world (As Spirit Jesus). Amen. Mt 28:20


You INSTRUCT disciples or students of Christ and do not impose the laded burden of "ceremonialism."

Didasko to teach, instruct, teach riding, teach shooting, taught of a father, Understood by all disciples that in the pagan sense:
WHAT JESUS COMMANDED TO BE TAUGHT (IN AN ASSERTIVE SENSE)

ENTELLO. Enjoin, Commmand, command by WORD OF MOUTH, invest with legal powers, AUTHORIZED to act.

A Disciple as baptized is a Christian: Christians undersand WHO has the authority which is AFTER THE LAW OF MOSES and is therefore not legalism.

Discipulus A learner, scholar, pubil, disciple, a learner in an art or trade, an APPRENTICE, a disciple of Christ.

A disciple is not a WORSHIPER in the "ceremonial legalism sense" which is IMPOSING the Law of David who did not teach the Law of Moses.

A Disciple does nothing as defined by the world as WORSHIP. Worship implies that YOU have something of value to God which appeases Him, pleasures Him or makes sure that He will not turn on you. A Disciple understands that the Direction-of-information-flow is FROM Christ TO His disciples.

Rom. 11:33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God!
......how unsearchable are his judgments,
......and his ways past finding out!
Rom. 11:34 For who hath known the mind of the Lord?
......or who hath been his counseller?
Rom. 11:35 Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?
Rom. 11:36 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.


There is not GRACE and no FURTHER REVELATION which would allow people to lie, cheat and steal church houses of widows and cut you off at the knees if you resist.

Christ in Isaiah 55 gave the FREE water of the Word because HIS thoughts are not OUR THOUGHTS: therefore theree is NO GRACE to people who claim that they can "hear beyond the sacred page" or just don't care what Scripture teaches.

http://www.piney.com/Isaiah.55.Word.Spirit.html

Fact is, I get more readers and less mockers of the posted word at my only place to respond to their lies about my posts.
