Mindy asked her question about Sunday School in 2004. So what took seeds of hope online eight years to show an interest in her question?Mindy email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would like to discuss this issue with you free of the moderators diversion to the truth.
PUT IT ALL TOGETHER IT SPELLS WITCHCRAFTLi'l David play yo harp but can never grasp: that CM does not do can-can't or may-might but "what does Scripture say."
You might sing Fanny Crosby with four-part harmony. You may sing in unison. You MUST never say that Christ's silence or your Centering prayer or Purpose Driven gives you divine AUTHORITY.
Jesus didn't say: get it right, make it pay: His commanded mission was to MAKE DISCIPLES by teaching what HE commanded to be taught. That will produce A spirit able to live in a spiritual kindgom.
As Jesus of Nazareth the Messiah His mission continued that of the Prophets led by the Spirit OF Christ and the prophecies made more certain by Jesus of Nazareth a man fulfilling the Will of God and the left memories of the Apostles who were eye-- and ear--witnesses. The Apostolic message is that any other teaching is left as a MARK of a false teacher following the false prophets under the Laws of the Monarchy.
Ephesians 2:20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
Ephesians 3:5 Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit;
Revelation 18:20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.
Revelation 18:21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.
Revelation 18:22 And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;
Revelation 18:23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.
Revelation 18:24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.
You MAY get your authority from the Levite Soothsayers or the Mother's harpers, musicians, pipers, trumpeters or Craftsmen (Staff).
You MAY NOT say that your authority comes from God.
We MAY say that your authority came from the Babylonian Mother of Harlots. Always an identifiable HER in the changeling churches.
That is God's WAY OF ESCAPE: men writing your own sermons, songs and Bible-Class literature and rejecting the clear COMMANDS, EXAMPLES and necessary inference. This is perfectly clear to those who know the difference between a SCHOOL and a RELIGIOUS TEMPLE COMPLEX. Or for those more interested in Jesus-Speak than preachers speaking about themselves.
Those who deliberately IGNORE the Prophets blaspheme The Holy Spirit because:
1Peter 1:10 Of which salvation the prophets have inquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:
1Peter 1:11 Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.
Revelation 19:9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.
Revelation 19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
No one can name a SINGLE preacher or "scholar" who has or can grasp that simple fact because PRIDE will not let them move outside of their curriculum.
Judging from Mindy's response, it looks like Donnie's answer satisfied her back in 2004, so Racnor need not worry about it now. Besides, we have no idea if, after eight years, Mindy ever saw seeds of hope's invitation to email him/her/it.Good point "B", it just dawned on me what you were saying. Donnie said "For now Im going to respond to your question briefly. Hopefully, Ill be able to expound or elaborate on this issue later on."... Eight years pass... If not for seeds of hope would Mindy ever have her question answered?
"A Disciple never speaks of should or shall but WHAT IS WRITTEN."I apologize in advance if this is not the place to post this question. This post is actually the result of days of searching the internet trying to find the answer. Right now, my family is trying to decide if Sunday School is Biblical and if that is the road we need to take.
I was raised Baptist while my husband was raised Church of Christ. He has always gone to a church that did NOT have Sunday School. Since we have children now, we feel a conviction to teach our children and to become closer to God ourselves. I see that Sunday School is fine but that is based on the way I was raised. I don't have scripture to back me up. He sees that Sunday School is wrong as it is never mentioned in the Bible, is a pretty new thing being less than 200 years old, and seperates the family. He sees that it is a parents job to teach the child, not the church.
He feels that Sunday School would be fine, like a Bible Study, if it were not a part of the worship service. He has agreed to pray on it as have I. Both of us are willing to go in the direction the Bible teaches. The church that we attend now does not have Sunday school and for various reasons is just not united. I have not felt at home there in a few years. I would like to switch churches so we are exploring the next step. Any ideas or scripture you all could find would be most appreciated.
