[color=#0000FF" size="4" face="times]No, CM is a religious discussion forum, and it allows differing beliefs to be expressed.Yes, CM often does whenever someone's belief differs from that of CM. CM does not have a monopoly on Biblical interpretation.
And then.....instead of leaving it alone....we have a two part dissertation on 'Truth in love'Truth in Love has two parts.
The WORD of God
2Cor. 6:7 By the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,
Eph. 1:13 In whom ye also trusted,
<font color="#FFFFFF">.....after that ye heard
.....the word of truth,
.....the gospel of your salvation:
.....in whom also after that ye believed,
.....ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,
Baptism INTO the Word or into the School of Christ is the SEAL that you have A personal holy spirit.
James 1:18 Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.
WORD excludes any personal comments, rhetoric, singing, playing instruments or acting.
The WORD of God is the SEED: it is also that which connects the branches to the Vine. Word is LOGOS as the Regulative Principle which the end-time theologians mock and despise. There is no way to sell your own songs and sermons or musical performance without proving self-love. Paul and the Greek literature defined corrupting the Word or selling learning at retail as prostitution. Their kind of love is not validated by TRUTH (exclusively). Paul denied "unity in diversity" because Jesus does not pray for the world (ecumenical) and said that any performance replacing the WORD is not love but is LYING IN WAIT TO DECEIVE.
This thread encourages posters to have more civil discussions without name-calling. Now the most frequently used name-calling terms on CM seem to be "liar" and "antichrist," and it also seems that those terms are abused much too often. They should only be Scripturally used and not always when someone has a different Scriptural interpretation from the moderators. As examples...And then.....instead of leaving it alone....we have a two part dissertation on 'Truth in love'
Donnie, say what you want and nice play on words, by the way, but beng called antichrist and liar by Sublett is judgmental, and although it is seen in Scripture, when calling someone by those names when we are trying to have a debate is ignorant and unholy. I believe that ignorant and unholy is in the Scriptures. I have used the term evil as a description of this site and the staff's take here on a lot of issues and especially it's condemnation of those they disagree with. Evil is also Scriptural.
Ken, perhaps for you, true love is when Horus scratches your itching ears?This thread is about truth in love.
[color=#0000FF" size="4" face="times]"Nazi Kommandants": mentioned 3 times in one post. Thanks for the name-calling. We're adding that one to the growing list.Yes, we know that the terms "liars" and "antichrists" are in the Bible. We all know, because CM cashes in on that quite frequently. Now since CM believes that it has a monopoly on interpretation of Scripture (i.e., CM believes that its interpretation is THE ONLY CORRECT interpretation), then CM condemns as liars and antichrists all who have different interpretations.
There's been high talk about not resorting to name-calling during discussions. Perhaps CM should re-evaluate its position about welcoming "different" beliefs and Scriptural interpretations. When CM gets on a roll of condemning as a "liar" and "antichrist" anyone with different Scriptural interpretations, the impression may be left that the people running CM are behaving like an arrogant little bunch of stiff-necked, goose-stepping, Nazi Kommandants. Now we certainly don't want anyone to get that kind of impression about CM, and we don't want CM to leave the impression that they are behaving like an arrogant little bunch of stiff-necked, goose-stepping, Nazi Kommandants. No sir, that just would NOT do at all. We couldn't have anything like that, because it would be unacceptable.
On the other hand, if CM persists its name-calling by frequently hurling "liars" and "antichrists" against those with different Scriptural interpretations, then I don't see how people can avoid regarding CM as behaving like an arrogant little bunch of stiff-necked, goose-stepping, Nazi Kommandants.
