    What is a Non Denominational Christian?

    you need to read all of the postings, why should I have to explain what's there already?: _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ atpollard said: So what did Jesus say about the procedure for getting my baby baptized at your church? I don't want to have to rely on the 'theology' of any man, so Jesus perfect answer is important to me. I missed it when I read the Gospels for myself. Will you refuse to give an answer when a brother in Christ asks? and I said: without looking it up, as far as I know the Lord doesn't address the issue does He? now if you are born into a Jewish family then circumcision is to be on the eighth day correct? so if the Lord has no instructions on baptizing a baby then why do you care? unless you want to add to what the Lord says. but this here may be the real issue: Act 10:47 Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we? 48 And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days. take note that when Peter went to the gentiles as instructed by God, that his presumption here is that those who receive the Holy Ghost, are to be baptized with water in the case of the Ministry of Grace. therefore as Peter sets it forth who was given the keys to bind and unbind. also its the Israelite that knows the purpose of the baptism by water in the case of one's relationship to the Lord God Almighty. so if your baby has confessed Christ and is baptized in the Holy Spirit, go for it. it might not be likely, but nothing is imposable with God. at least that's what scriptures says doesn't it? besides if you listen to the text as Peter tells the story:: Act 11:16 Then remembered I the word of the Lord, how that he said, John indeed baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost. note that John the man, baptizes with water but Jesus the Son of God the Word of God, baptizes with the Holy Ghost. and according to the events referred to in Acts the Baptism with the Holy Ghost is first. notice no interpretations no theology of men just what the scripture says. men are always trying to us scripture to justify to other so called believers, but the Truth need no justification. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________ any way according to John Jesus didn't baptize with water anyway: Joh 4:1 When therefore the Lord knew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John, 2 (Though Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples,) if you want get pushy, you should read it all. I do believe even Apostle Paul stated that he himself didn't baptize and left that to others.

    again, that response was to a question of what the Lord had to say.

    how is it that existence of man's opinion has anything at all to do with the Truth of God. no I didn't miss your useless point all you are say is man's opinion exists. so what opinions are like rear-ends every one has one, thing is what does the Lord think? if you seek to be acceptable with a denomination then you better do what they say you ought to do. but they don't have the power to raise your child from the dead do they? if you seek to be acceptable before the Lord then its what He says, isn't it, and if He doesn't say something is required then why are you insisting something is? oh yea because your friends at the church you frequent say so, correct? as far as your love for you child, it doesn't make God chose her does it? you don't get to chose what soul gets saved even if its your child. ask any minister that has lost their children to the ways of the world. Isaac's choice was Esau, but the Lord God said He hated Esau and loved Jacob. and Isaac was a very important part of God's use of Abraham's children wasn't he? and if you don't have respect for God's entitlement to choose who shall be His, then don't expect Him to honor any request on the same matter. Job walked with God, God even declared him righteous. and Job would supplicate and offer for his children's sake, and did that work? no, but Job knew the reality of the situation at hand when it came to his children. God's not obligated to accommodate your whishes, He fulfills His Word therefore if He gives you His Word that your child's soul shall be saved, then He will keep it. so yes, ether you seek the Almighty to grant you the salvation of your child's soul, or you wait it out. either way the water ain't going to do a thing.

    by those who follow theology and theology is of men, not of God.

    Jesus is the Son of God from and in the Presence of God, He is the fulfillment of scripture. there is no comparison what so ever. Jesus is the One who gave the law to Moses, you know Jesus is the Word of God made flesh and Moses heard the Word of God before the Word of God was made flesh. hence He is the Word of God therefore He isn't going to very from the Word of God documented by those He entrusted and revealed Himself being the Word of God, to. He's the same yesterday today and forever, therefore He's not going to say something different other than reveal more of the same of what He is. I suggest you back up and punt, you should reconsider just who and what Jesus is and who and what He said He is.

    William you should observe that I didn't state: were did I state that exactly? theology is of man, is what I stated somewhere but I never said theology is Christ centered that's what men who love their theologies would have you believe. truth of God isn't a theory friend no way no shape and in no form is Jesus a theology. theology is man's view, not God's view, God doesn't theologize Himself. he reveals Himself via His Word. no theory or speculation in that. theologians ponder about a God they don't know, the faithful follow a God they know through His Word. no theologian required. Noah wasn't a theologian Abraham wasn't a theologian King David wasn't a theologian. not even Apostle Paul was a theologian. one theorizes what they haven't experienced, others know what they have experienced. if you know God then you know the fulfillment of His Word in and with you, of which Jesus is the fulfillment of God's Word in man. again known or experienced by the faithful, and theorized by those who know not.

    where in scripture does it say Jesus was a Pharisee? where do you get that assumption at? you are already incorrect. and so what if men use scripture to justify what they want, or want you to believe. how is that not of men? all that proves is men can deceive using scripture it happens all the time. the serpent used what God said to justify the view he wanted Eve to see of God in the garden, didn't he? where do you get these assumptions at? oh yea, here is why you don't see: man's condition doesn't justify anything before God does it? so why are you trying to use man's so called condition of imperfection to justify man's judgment of what biblical truth is. Jesus Justifies buddy get a grip. man is incorrect by his nature alone and before he starts out, because Jesus is correct all the time everywhere. and there is only One Jesus, correct? so anything other then that is incorrect. man's a sinner that justifies his skewed view of things, huh? by your posting you love you world of words according to man of what God meant and said. hey have at it, but save your breath don't try and sell me that bill of no-goods

    What is a Non Denominational Christian?

    its been my experience that non-denomination is simply not adopting denominational theology. I see here already some state "non-denominationalism" like its a theology in and of itself. hey another ism for books eh. the idea is that one doesn't participate in the 'ism" beliefs sectionalized categorized for your conveniences that all are isms. Jesus was of no sect of Jewish beliefs or theology as were the Pharisees and Sadducees or scribes for example. that doesn't make a person that isn't affiliated to any denomination more "Jesus like" its a preferred stance. but socially, saying one is a Christian is enough for those who care to, to clump you into that one basket any way. theology is of man, and Jesus is the only interpretation of God's Word to man that the Almighty is satisfied with. all else is excluded. for example Jesus is the King of the Kingdom of God correct hence a unquestioned sovereign, always correct in all things. therefore anything that is contrary to Him isn't in the Kingdom of God. so what the heck do you need isms for, but for men's pleasures.

    what does the Lord God value?

    . How much does the Lord God value those who listen to His Voice? Consider that there was no one nothing to respond to Lord God’s Voice for a eternity before heaven and earth was made. I don’t know if any of you know solitude but it begins as a calming thing and then it eats at you. If any poor soul happens to be within your range you talk to be heard whether that person cares to hear or not, sometimes blurting out unsolicited information about yourself or your experiences, almost a form of crying out, or outcry. So just how valuable is what would respond to the Voice of the Lord according to His Judgement to His satisfaction?

    The crux of the matter...

    man was given God's place in the earth, and Adam: Luk 3:38 Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God. Adam "lost" that Life of son ship and was left with dust to dust and ashes to ashes. therefore that which is of earth remains in the earth, and that which is of Heaven remains in Heaven. so in God's place in the earth as a son of God, man is to execute God's Judgement, and God's Judgement is Life, which was expressed in His commandment to Adam. its not man's job to judge what is good and evil for God's creation that is God's job. man's job is to discern what is for and against what God's Judgement of what is good and evil for His creation. but they sot to be like gods didn't they? knowing good and evil. and God in His good Judgment has brought that Life back into the world via His Beloved Son the Word of God made flesh our Lord Jesus Christ and requires of use the same thing that lost the Life in the first place which is the same thing that would have kept that Life. belief/trust also known as faith. Adam listened to Eve who listened and believed/trusted the serpent. and if you don't know what honor, fear, and admiration, belief and trust is, then you don't know what worship is.

    Veterans, Not NFL, To Be Focus for Many Fans This Sunday

    I'm originally from Pittsburgh and been to many games when I was still there, but when they refused to come out of the locker room for the national anthem some weeks back I removed all Steeler paraphernalia and haven't watched any NFL at all. if you want to get there attention then don't watch any NFL and avoid buying any sponsorship products like bud and papa johns pizza and stuff of that nature and maybe next year you will here them "them" whole NFL apologize to the country that they receive much success and moneys from. they don't care about anything but your attention, that's the key to their income, just ignore their existence and that will come back to them in terms of money because that is what they respond to. went to Yuma a military town some weeks ago, seen only three nfl shirts, went to phoenix that has Luke air force base during the state fair seen less than ten nfl shirts the whole week end. its for real as far as I can tell. don't know how long it will last but the longer the better.
  13. you can say that all you want but without Christian oriented participation in the making of laws in this country you can forget any regard for your beliefs and or your sensibilities of what is "normal" or acceptable. while everyone was standing around with their teeth in their mouth, they got experts to verify that things like homosexuality is something one is born with and not a choice. we know that's horse dump but they got the courts to accept their so called findings. so now there we are in the mist of hostilities toward the institutions that established this society of freedom and liberties. sexual orientation is a choice not a race or religion or something of that nature that's covered under the constitution. that's where you start with, the courts interpretation thereof.
  14. well William that's a lot of yakity bla on a matter only the faithful know. Abraham had faith alright, like his predecessor Noah he was the tenth gen from Noah as Noah was the tenth from Adam. also Noah was still alive until Abraham was 50, and God came to him and told him to pack his stuff and go to a chosen land. plus all the event that lead to or was before his offering of his son. just what was the works actually? that is the question. men seek to judge the works as if it be of a saint or not don't they? therefore the conquest of the interpretation of works v faith. note that most arguments pit faith against works, whereas its simply one acts on what one believes or trusts. that is the works of Abraham works of Hitler works of the office clerk, so on and so forth. all James is saying is those who believe and trust the Word of God act on the Word of God. those who don't, trust and believe something else. churches love to use this made up controversy to achieve their agendas and programs and influence with the membership. there's a soup kitchen ministry here and I used to go there to see a few friends in Christ, but I tell you this, there have been some there that see this soup kitchen as the works that justify them making them righteous Christians. na, na na na, the state funded by the fed's provided housing food money and full health care for the week and the poor and they have nothing to do with religion or justification b y works so on and so forth. so how is it that they are so special? the principal thing is the fulfillment of God's Word, and that Word to mankind is fulfilled in the faithful, in the case of a friendly relationship with God. which is the Faith of Abraham. and in the case of Jesus Christ He being the Beloved Son of God and the faithful receiving the Life of Christ with the power to become the sons of God, now have the Faith of Christ, which is a son ship with God the Father the same Father of Jesus Christ.

    Have you ever butchered an animal for meat?

    put a little BBQ sauce on it, you'll never know. hay, no matter what is done under the sun by men, some do it in a up-right and just manor and some don't. human nature is what it is, just be glad they would loss money and go to jail if they poisoned you do to some neglect on their part. there will always be the unscrupulous involved with any industry that pays.
