Return To New Testament Rules

“BLESS the Lord, O my soul,
And all that is within me,
Bless His Holy Name.
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And forget not all his benefits.” 
Psalm 103:1-2.

The various groups in Protestantism, developed a way to read the Holy Scripture. These divisions have many different beliefs.  There are many and various interpretations upon how to examine God’s Word. One can attend almost any of the hundreds of churches in the United States and almost all of them differs from the other hundreds, which are in existence.

 

Each among those who have the same or similar names there will be a huge gulf in their practices, approaches, and attitudes toward the meaning of many chapters and verses of the Bible. There is a problem in Scripture interpretation. Many adults cannot civilly discuss the cleavage that divides the mental thoughts of men and women when the Bible is brought up to the vast number who state they are Christians.

 

When talking and deliberating on the remarks of his Word, we must have some basic foundation that both can agree upon. This is doubtful there will ever be a meeting of the minds. As readers, we should agree upon certain aspects of the Bible. The position of this writer is what Peter wrote in II Peter 1:20-21.                    

“Knowing this first, that no prophecy
Of the scripture is of any private interpretation.”

“For the prophecy came not in old time
By the will of man: but Holy Men of God

Spake as they were moved buy the Holy Spirit.”

 

Paul wrote to Timothy in Timothy 3:15-16, these words which establishes the infallibility of the Word of God as the guide for man to believe what was and is written in the New Testament.

“This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all
Acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the
world to save sinners; of whom I am Chief.”

”Howbeit for this cause I attained mercy,
That in my first Jesus Christ might show forth
All long suffering for a pattern to them which should Hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.”

 

When reading this blog, you will often see these words which can be accepted easily.

“Where the Bible speaks, we speak.

Where the Bible is silent, we are silent.

But in all things, intelligent good will.”

 

As you hear men who are supposedly learned in God’s writing by the prophets one wonders if these men are reading the same book. The interpretation is so different. In the next few pages it

will be shown how men will twist, warp, and contort the message which God Almighty has allowed men to write it down so the infallibile remarks of Jehovah are always right before our eyes.

 

It is almost as if Satan has twisted the Perfect Word into a contorted knot.

 

The United States has seen the Democratic Party create the destruction of a sacred writing called the United States Constitution. In the last three years you have observed how Nancy Pelosi, Jerry Nadler and Adam Schiff as well AOC and Charles Schumer made every effort to have the President removed from office by the means of an impeachment before the Senate. The final result was acquittal.  This has been in the making for three years against President Donald Trump.

 

The point is the similarity between twisting the Holy Word and disregarding the basis of the Constitution is obvious. This unjust act should never have happened. Hopefully, the American people will settle the dispute.

 

The final act of the Speaker of the House was to tear up President Trump’s speech at the end – so that people would be persuaded as to how contemptuous Donald Trump is. The Founding Fathers of the Republic would never uphold such a display of arrogance, hateful and demonic manners.

 

The following are some errors which are contrary to the teaching of the New Testament:

First, Christians give such a high and exalted place to the Jews. They do not deserve it. The Bible never calls Abraham a Jew. He was not an Israelite. He was a man of faith. Through him – the patriarch had descendants which were called Israelites 1500 years after his death.

 

Second, you may have heard God’s promise for the Jews is unconditional. The truth is the Jews were/are rebellious and condemned like all sinners who do not accept Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

 

Third, you may have been told that baptism is not essential to salvation.  You are mistaken. One can read where Jesus even commanded baptism which is an immersion of the whole body in water. It is not to be only a pouring or a sprinkling.

 

Fourth, you may have heard the remark of once in grace always is grace. This was never a teaching of the apostles. There has always been that you are to remain faithful until the last breath has gone through your lungs.

 

Fifth, you may have been told the Scripture can be changed at the whims of men.

 

You may have been told that men can be married to men and women can be married to women. OH – NO! This was and is not a teaching of the Holy Scripture.

 

 

Sixth, you may have witnessed fornication and/or adultery which are permissible now. Men have accepted this. God does condemn this act of rebellion. This is stated both in the Old Testament and in the New Testament.

 

Seventh, you have observed that the Church can use any form it desires in the method of Church Leadership. Women can change the position and become a part of certain aspects of the leadership of the body of Christ. One example is the Elderships of the Church.

 

Eighth, Christians as a group are not familiar with the Old Testament. It is here in the writings of Moses that much is explained why Christians are commanded what is performed in the church. Then, the prophets tell us how we are to act. Just to read the New Testament and disregard the Old Testament is not the way that God intends for us to act.

 

A mere person can never understand the full impact of Who the Son of God was.

 

Ninth, the book of Revelation generally is dodged by those who read this final chapter in the existence as we know it on this terrestrial ball that moves in space. Certain aspects of it can be and are disturbing to Christians. John’s remarks as given to him on the isle of Patmos is a method of judging the end. This upsets the readers.

 

Tenth, there is an obvious disconnect between the leadership of the present church and the manner in which the Apostles saw this responsibility.

A former president of the Dallas Christian College told me, his students looked upon the ministers as paid workers of the church. It is a nine to four position which had them working a few hours on Sunday. When we read the life of Paul, this does not describe his life. He worked around the clock – 24/7.

 

The Apostles will not return until the conclusion of this world has unfolded. Yet, there is a fundamental concept which should be adopted by the followers of Jesus Christ. We should remain as close as possible to the original instructions of the Apostles because it was through these men, we are blessed with knowing about Jesus. There is no other place or person who can instruct us what it means to be a Christian.

There are a few people who hold to the position of following the instructions found in the New Testament. These as a group are people who seek to restore the commands and practices of the New Testament. They have a name. They are people of the Restoration Movement.

 

Among men there is the desire to change the rules of conduct. Supposedly it is for improvement of the original purpose. However, whomever believes this is smoking pot or still believes in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy.

 

When a change happens, it will fall into one or more of these categories, to wit:

  • Power,
  • Money,
  • Popularity,
  • Prestige,
  • Control,
  • Destruction of others, and
  • Evil intent.

 

As a lawyer this writer expresses this on a daily basis. “The Federal Rules of Civil Procedure”, always has some context trying to be adapt as a new version now it can be forced on lawyers any time. If the government has complete power over the participants – then the original intent is lost.

 

There is a recent example how damage can lead to confusion, chaos, and clamor. This was the Democratic Party vote in Iowa. About all these people have decided were what the popular vote was. It seems as if the method of the past would have been more appropriate. No, some “bright person” sought a change that appears to have been flawed.

 

The idea to explore other methods for bringing about a faster and more efficient vote count is worthy of consideration. The point must be that the new means should be researched.  Then and only then can it be adapted.  The Democratic Party has a pattern to jump into a new idea without considering the circumstances. Nancy Pelosi was infamous for stating that they first had to be passed so we could read it.

 

This is what was done in the attempt to impeach President Donald Trump. Nancy Pelosi was acclaimed to be such a brilliant Congresswoman, until it became obvious that she was a stupid, evil, and demonic sleazeball.  She was controlled by the four leaders of the socialist group. They are silly, stupid, satanic women – headed by AOC.

 

Article II, section 4, of the United States Constitution states that the President can only be removed for  “… Treason, Bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanor”.  With the exception of Mitt Romney, a turncoat Republican, the Republican Party stood firm against these Marxist’s. What these Socialists did to President Trump and his family was orchestrated by people who were filled with hatred because he won an election against crooked Hillary.

 

The failed attempt was done by a brazen group of ignorant people who did not have the best interests of the people or of the United States.

 

When Nancy Pelosi said the President’s defense team should be disbarred, she must have never heard of Civil Rights, the rule of the law and common decency.

 

Jesus was asked what the greatest commandment in Matthew 22:35-40. His answer fits our life today.

Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked
Him a question, tempting him, and saying,

“Master, which is the great commandment in the law?”

 

“Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord
They God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

 

“This is the first and greatest commandment.

 

“And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love

thy neighbor as thy self.”

 

“On these two commandments hand all the law

and the prophets.”

 

When Nancy Pelosi tore up of the State of the Union speech before the millions of people that were watching the event; it spoke volumes of her character as a person.

Unless there are physical grounds and mental attacks, we are to control our own emotions in a civil manner.  When the President mentioned people who had done great and patriotic actions – the members of the Democratic Party sat motionless. This in itself was a hostile act that brought contempt upon them. The election in November 2020 will tell what the American voters think of these demonic people.

 

Paul in Romans 12:19-21, stated we are to wait for the Son of God to act.

“Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but,

Rather give place unto wrath: for it is written,

Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.”

 

“Therefore, if thine enemy hunger, feed him;
If he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing
Thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.”

 

“Be not overcome from evil – but overcome evil with good.”

       

If it could be humorous, which it is not, when Alan Dershowitz blamed others as acting like Hitler, Stalin or Mussolini. Alan Dershowitz is a Jew. Had he lived in Germany in the 1930’s or 1940’s, he would have been sent to a labor camp to be killed by the Nazis. Nancy Pelosi makes no sense then or now.

 

What we are seeing now is the fulfillment of Romans 1:23-25.

“And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God
Into an image made like to corruptible man, and to
Birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things.”

       

“Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts,

to dishonor their own bodies between themselves.”

 

“Who changed the truth of God into a lie and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator,

who is Blessed for every man.  Amen.”

 

It is an honor to be counted amount those who stand up for truth, justice and the Godly way.

 

We should strive to bring glory to God the Father, Jesus the Son and His Spirit as we walk and live among men. To seek destruction of a person who has only brought greatness to America is wrong. The President has openly stated he is a believer that has taken this on his shoulders to bring greatness back to America.

 

CONCLUSION

  1. Return to the New Testament way,
  2. Change yes, not before, examination,
  3. Condemn evil, and
  4. Actions to be guided by Jesus.

God bless our Republic.

KEEP THE FAITH!
