"Don't blame the Catholics for my issues - mine are taken directly from the teachings of Jesus Christ."
Just not ALL of the teachings of Jesus Christ. Only the ones where he was walking around teaching 12 men on how to preach to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
Which ain't you. And never will be.

You can reject the kingdom of God as preached by the Anointed One if you want. Maybe you can go where Paul is. BTW, I'm not a 'wanna-be-Jew', I desire to be careful to observe what God said to do. You don't.

And who is the lost sheep house of Israel. Does it exist today
#45 Jul 31, 2013
Not one person ever "became righteous" by "obeying the law."
And this includes you.

The 12 tribes of Israel.
Scattered after AD 70 when Rome destroyed Jerusalem.

You reject God when you reject what He said you must do. Have you ever read Psalm 119? No other person in the Bible speaks such evil against the commandments of God as did Paul. Yet you believe Paul, the false apostle, over the mere man through whom the Messiah was to come - as he was a man after God's own heart.
Oh, I forgot, David was a Jew and you hate Jews. Well, so was Y'shua.
Just cross I Cor. 7:19 out of your Bible so you don't have to be reminded of what Paul really thought.

What is the gospel if it is not the gospel of the kingdom of God? And what is the kingdom of God, if not the kingdom of priests dedicated to live their lives in service to the King and who are careful to do His will?
If this King has spoken and given His word, He will be faithful to do as He said to those who refuse to hear Him in any matter. You cannot have the Spirit He gives and reject the very words the Spirit is sent to write upon your heart that you might do His will from your heart. What thing has He said that you don't think true?

Yet you believe Paul, the false apostle, over the mere man through whom the Messiah was to come - as he was a man after God's own heart."
Paul was confirmed by Christ, approved of by Peter, James, and John, and was able to work the signs of an apostle by raising the dead. Luke recorded his travels and Luke had knowledge of all things.
"Oh, I forgot, David was a Jew and you hate Jews. Well, so was Y'shua."
As usual, you come across as a ranting clown with very limited knowledge of the Bible. You are a Wanna-Be Jew who spends his time reading blogs from other Wanna-Be Jews and you have talked yourself into being a Jew because you think the OT Jews were somehow "better" than everyone else. They weren't. And you will never attain the righteousness of God because you reject the very righteousness of God that is being offered through the death of his son. There isn't ONE Jew in all of recorded history who ever became righteous by observing and keeping the law, and it certainly isn't going to be you.
"Just cross I Cor. 7:19 out of your Bible so you don't have to be reminded of what Paul really thought."
You hate Paul, but you quote Paul. Got it now.

"What is the gospel if it is not the gospel of the kingdom of God? And what is the kingdom of God, if not the kingdom of priests dedicated to live their lives in service to the King and who are careful to do His will?"
Circular reasoning leading to a confused mish-mash of gospel truth. The ONLY gospel that will save you, me, or anyone else today is the gospel given by God through the resurrected Christ to the apostle Paul. It is called the gospel of the Grace of God, and it involves faith and trust in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ as the full and complete payment for sin. ALL sin.
God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses against them. Christ's imputed righteousness is your if you trust his sacrifice on your behalf.
"If this King has spoken and given His word, He will be faithful to do as He said to those who refuse to hear Him in any matter. You cannot have the Spirit He gives and reject the very words the Spirit is sent to write upon your heart that you might do His will from your heart. What thing has He said that you don't think true?"
You've got a spirit alright. But it's not the Holy Spirit. If you would trust Christ died for your sins, was buried, and resurrected for your justification, you would be sealed by the Holy Spirit until the day of redemption.
Instead, you want to do something else, and attempt to establish your own righteousness, just like those rebellious Jews who rejected Christ and his merits.
This will end very, very badly for you.

Unless I missed it you still have not provided the name or denomination of the church with which you are affiliated. I can understand the reluctance to provide the actual name of a local church but without the denomination I can only surmise you are church with one member.

At the time of Christ, the 12 tribes were no longer in What is call Palistine. The Biblical name was Judea. this is where the term of jew came from. Judea, Judeans, Jews. The only tribe at this time were 2. Ben (David) and Judah. The 10 had "disappear". When King Solamon died a civil war took place. The nation to the north was Israel (10) the nation to the south was Judea (2). At 70 AD the completion took place to scatter the remaining. The 10 were scattered long before this and God punish them by wiping the memory of who they were, while the jew never forgotten who they were. Jews today are the only people who can prove that they are descendants from the Hebrews. Most folks don't understand that Jews and Hebrews are 2 difference people. Ex:. My parents are from Ireland, came here when they were young kids. I call myself Irish -american. But I am really Irish. No. I go and visit my relative in Ireland and tell them I am Irish, they would kick me in the "rearend" and say I am nothing more then a dame yankee. To them I am American and nothing more. This is the same with all nationaliies who are here. Yes Jesus did tell the "BOYS" to leave the House of Judea and go to the lost House of Israel and tell the Good News. The prophecies also say that the House of Israel and Jude will exist near the "end of days" . After the Civil War, you'll notice the prophets talk about the house of Israel and the House of Judea. Most folks think they are one and the same. NO. that is why Jesus said to leave the house of Judea and go to the House of Israel. If we are in the beginning of the "end of days" then who is the House of Israel and the House of Judea today? Let me know if you need help, I'll tell were to look at.

That would be church, the body of Christ. And it appears that I am the only member on this Topix page.

From that ridiculous website that Barnsweb posted, we find this whopper:
"Also we find the example of the rich young ruler who asked what commandments he must keep to inherit eternal life and Jesus mentions the commandments of God and then in a separate comment discussed what he must do if he wanted to be perfect and have treasures in heaven - to transfer his earthly treasure to heaven for safe keeping. From this example we can see that there are levels of commandments that are basic, increasing levels of righteousness to the level of perfection/perfect."
"Levels" of commandments.
"Increasing levels of righteousness" to the level of perfection/perfect.
What absolute garbage this is. It's all about what YOU do, can do, strive to do, and hope to do. In other words, this false gospel is WORKS and they are works that you can never hope to do because no one in the entire recorded history of mankind has ever done them.
Jesus Christ, and his sacrifice, means NOTHING to the owner of that website and anyone who goes there taking it seriously as some kind of a guide.

That would be an absurd Sola Scriptura answer. So your church has no physical address, no phone number or website so it may be contacted by interested people. Like in Turandot, "...il nome mio nessun saprà!" No one will know my name. Either put up or shut up.

Faith and Works.*
What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him?i
If a brother or sister has nothing to wear and has no food for the day,
and one of you says to them,“Go in peace, keep warm, and eat well,” but you do not give them the necessities of the body, what good is it?j
So also faith of itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
Indeed someone might say,“You have faith and I have works.” Demonstrate your faith to me without works, and I will demonstrate my faith to you from my works.
You believe that God is one. You do well. Even the demons believe that and tremble.
Do you want proof, you ignoramus, that faith without works is useless?
Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered his son Isaac upon the altar?
You see that faith was active along with his works, and faith was completed by the works.
Thus the scripture was fulfilled that says,“Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness,” and he was called “the friend of God.”l
See how a person is justified by works and not by faith alone.
And in the same way, was not Rahab the harlot also justified by works when she welcomed the messengers and sent them out by a different route?m
For just as a body without a spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead.

James knew well what Jesus taught, as we can see from the passage quoted above this post. Then we can also look at what He said throughout Revelation and know that repentance, faith and works are all tied together. If you don't understand what Jesus taught, that's because you have been blinded because you refuse to repent to do the will of God - you've been offended by His words that lead to eternal life and instruct you how to become a disciple.
God isn't mocked by the likes of you, let alone will He stand corrected by either you or Paul.
#59 Aug 2, 2013
Nope, can't see what Church you belong to from your rude replies and thoughtless replies. If CoC, you're one of the most ignorant I've seen to date - is that a 'proof' of your membership?

"If you don't understand what Jesus taught, that's because you have been blinded because you refuse to repent to do the will of God - you've been offended by His words that lead to eternal life and instruct you how to become a disciple."
How's that "repenting" lifestyle working out for you? Have you repented enough to make yourself acceptable to God? How will you even know?
You will NEVER make yourself acceptable to God without Christ's righteousness imputed to you. All the so-called repenting, water baptizing, works, and "holy living" in the world will land you straight into hell. Repentance isn't "cleaning up your flesh", which can never be cleaned up. Find me someone in that Bible who cleaned up their flesh and made themselves acceptable to God. Better yet, find me where God told you that you could clean up your flesh and make it acceptable to him.
Jesus Christ, and what he did for you, just isn't good enough for you. It's always gotta be something else. And THAT is religion.

Which one of the 12 tribes of Israel do you belong to?
#62 Aug 2, 2013
"God isn't mocked by the likes of you, let alone will He stand corrected by either you or Paul."
You sound just like one of the Jews that followed Paul around as he went from town to town preaching the gospel of the grace of God.
Always trying to get people back under the law, while they themselves aren't even able to abide by it to begin with.
That's you and your AENT buddies in a nut-shell.
