Are there any on this forum whom can read the following and tell me it teaches that Christ is God????
Php 2:6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
Jesus is God or not,..... will not DRAW A SINNER TO REPENTANCE...
TO THE UNREGENERATED IT IS MOOT...
THEY COULD NOT CARE LESS...
IF YOU ARE A REAL CHRISTIAN...LIVING THE EXAMPLE WHILE
PRESENTING THE WORD OF GOD...
SO THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT CAN (CONVICT THE UN SAVED)...
GIVE THEM THE REVELATION THAT THEY ARE
IN NEED OF SALVATION ...SHOULD THAT NOT BE BE YOUR PRIORITY ?...
Joh_12:32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.
Winning souls that are facing eternal damnation IN HELL..
is of greater importance than your contentions.
Wisdom and meekness.
Men are naturally fond of a reputation for superior understanding and wisdom.
Here, then, is the best way to show the real possession of such superiority;
not by a forward self-consequence
—a self-commendatory, and over-eager desire to dictate to others from the teacher’s chair;
not by a magisterial dogmatism of manner;
not by a lofty and supercilious contempt of other men and their views and modes of instruction;
not by a keen, contentious, overbearing zeal.
No; let the man of “knowledge” and “wisdom”
show his possession of these attributes—
acquaintance with truth, and
sound discretion to direct to the right use of it—
by keeping his station, and studying to adorn it.
Let him, first of all,maintain
“a good conversation”
—or course of conduct,
private and public—
a conversation upright and holy, in full harmony with the genuine influence of Divine truth, and
“let Him show, out of such a conversation, his works”—
the practical results of his knowledge and professed faith.
These “works” consisted in
active conformity to the duties required by Divine precept, in all the various relations of life, more private or more public. And these “works” were to be shown “with meekness of wisdom”—that is, with the meekness by which genuine wisdom is ever distinguished.
Vanity is one of the marks of a weak mind.
Humility and gentleness are the invariable associates of true wisdom.
The two were united, in their respective fulness of perfection,
in the blessed Jesus.
Let the man, then,
who would have a character for true wisdom manifest
in his entire deportment
“the meekness and gentleness of Christ.”(H. Wardlaw, D. D.)
