tell me Hank, acccording you to and your church(since you follow it and that is where your beleifs come from)what are your qualifications?<quoted text>
God has NOT stopped making DISCIPLES NOT apostles....
No one today qualifies to be an apostle....KayMarie...
so while you are looking, I fouund this link, most of it I am in disagreement wirth since he like you ,is trying to disprove the Word of God.
Special Qualifications: The qualifications of the apostles are given in Acts 1:21-22  Wherefore of these men which have companied with us all the time that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us, Beginning from the baptism of John, unto that same day that he was taken up from us, must one be ordained to be a witness with us of his resurrection.
See All.... They must have been with Jesus during His earthly ministry (v.21), been baptized by John the Baptist (v.22), and been eyewitnesses of the resurrected Christ (v.22).
Paul was given an exemption on the first requirements but greatly emphasized his having been an eyewitness of the resurrected Christ –“And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time”(1Corinthians 15:8And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time.
"last of all he was seen of me"(SEE THAT)
a necessary qualification, you have to have seen Chrsit as Resurrected. I fit that description and my testimony is True(weather it is beleive or not is none of my concern).
also that person has to have been chosen(paul was called a"chosen vessel") at the age of 12, the greats in heaven sent my grandfather back to tell me that God had a job for me to do(THAT IS CHOSEN)AND IS UNIQUE in that ministers to Preach are "called "every day, BUT FEW ARE CHOSEN(WHIHC IS THE CORRECT INTREPRETATION NO MATTER WHAT PEOPLE LIKE MARGE THINKS.
YOU SAY THAT THEY HAVE must have power to lay hands on people and they receive the Holy Ghost. well Hank ,that occurs all of the time if YOU are in the right churches.(AND THAT IS ONE OF THE FEW THINGS THAT GIF AND I COULD AGREE ON).
NOW YOU CAN PROVIDE YOUR ARGUMENTS , LOL
