    started a blog post I do not need your commentary!

    I do not need your commentary!

    How many times have we ran into someone that says, "I don't need your commentary on commentaries; the Holy Spirit can teach me how to think of them"? Do we "get our explanation" from the commentary, or rather can we see an explanation and weigh it in the balance of Scripture? "I do not need your commentary; the Holy Spirit teaches me", would be a perfectly legitimate response in only the following situation: the person speaking has a direct revelatory connection with God while all others do not. Seeing as that is probably not the case, a person will be listening to his own commentary as he reads. How would he distinguish between his own man-made commentary and the illumination of the Spirit? Further, let's not deny the work of the Spirit in others and thus the benefit of considering their words. Christ gave gifts to the church to guide and teach, so that we will grow in the faith: And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the sain...

    I come from the Baptist evangelical community/path/teaching/theological doctrinal pursuits. I join groups of women's Bible Studies. I read and consult Bible commnetaries if I want to dig deeper on a subject matter about why the writer of the Scripture wrote it that way and who was he directing the words to? Those sort of things I make use of the gift of reasoning God gave us so we can understand what God is doing and saying.
    Since I've taken greater interest in the authorship of the Scriptures, which are written by Hebrews, I've searched more for commentaries who have closest knowledge of the Scripture's culture, history, thoughts and principles in the Hebraic lens and perspective. Because I don't want to have my own personal interpretation of the Scriptures.
    David H. Stern's Complete Jewish Bible and the Jewish New Testament Commentary is one of them that I look at and consult-- removing all my old biases and prejudices when I study.

    Thank you for your blog...

    Reply to Are Tattoos really a sin, and will it prevent entry into Heaven

    "Therefore shall ye observe all My statues, and all My judgments, and do them, I am the Lord." Lev. 19:37 Answering the second part of the topic "Will it (tattoos) prevent entry into Heaven?" not necessarily, but there is a statue of law that if violated does have the penalty of denying every offender of that statue entry into heaven and it is offended by not obeying it.
    "For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God's sight, but it is those who obey the law who will be declared righteous." Rom. 2:13 Don't have the faith to obey that particular statue Paul is referencing: whomever does not obey it is an offender of it and thereby is axiomatically not allowed to enter heaven. There are no exceptions and there is no remediation process available for any offender of this statue of law.

    Then the restriction is on tattooing (and cutting) as part of the cultural ritual of honoring the dead, like the heathen do, and there could be a Christ honoring reason for getting a tattoo (as there is a Christ honoring reason for dressing and cutting our hair a certain way.)

    It is not the act of tattooing that I am eager to defend, but the principle of Romans 14:5-6 [NIV]
    5 One person considers one day more sacred than another; another considers every day alike. Each of them should be fully convinced in their own mind. 6 Whoever regards one day as special does so to the Lord. Whoever eats meat does so to the Lord, for they give thanks to God; and whoever abstains does so to the Lord and gives thanks to God.

    I wish my brothers to retain the freedom to do whatever does not violate the two greatest commandments to the glory of God without being re-yolked under the Law of the Old Covenant.
    You say that a Christian should not embrace the heathen culture...

    I am with you Bliss, and if someone rounds or shapes their hair for the same reasons they tattoo themselves as mentioned in Leviticus then they are guilty of sinning. Don't take upon yourself the way of the surrounding cultures or heathens - that's a reoccurring theme in the OT to Israel.

    God bless,

    LEVITICUS 19:27
    New King James Bible
    ‘You shall not shave around the sides of your head, nor shall you disfigure the edges of your beard.

    ----
    Why do you obey Lev 19:28 and ignore the command immediately before it (assuming you shave and trim the hair on the side of your head)?
    Like you, this is not about sowing discord, it is about understanding what yardstick you are using to pick and choose which laws to obey?

    As for me, I stand on ...

    COLOTIANS 2:11-23
    New King James Bible
    In Him you were also circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the sins of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ, buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead. And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses,...
