for ye are not under the law, but under grace—The force of this glorious assurance can only be felt by observing the grounds on which it rests. To be "under the law" is, first, to be under its claim to entire obedience; and so, next under its curse for the breach of these. And as all power to obey can reach the sinner only through Grace, of which the law knows nothing, it follows that to be "under the law" is, finally, to be shut up under an inability to keep it, and consequently to be the helpless slave of sin. On the other hand, to be "under grace," is to be under the glorious canopy and saving effects of that "grace which reigns through righteousness unto eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (see on [2205]Ro 5:20, 21). The curse of the law has been completely lifted from off them; they are made "the righteousness of God in Him"; and they are "alive unto God through Jesus Christ." So that, as when they were "under the law," Sin could not but have dominion over them, so now that they are "under grace," Sin cannot but be subdued under them. If before, Sin resistlessly triumphed, Grace will now be more than conqueror. JFBC.

I must share this with you...

I can't say that god gave a revelation in this event but recently at a ROMAN CATHOLIC

CHURCH near by..... This happened..

One of the congregants received a message that effected the whole church

I am not sure what was transpiring at the time, but a man there received a definite revelation. I realty don't believe it was divinely instigated though...

The sound of the braying of a donkey...was heard.... loudly resounding across the edifice

breaking the solicitude pomp and pride of the whole ritualistic scene......

I guess the parishioners thought for an sec..... that ST JENNY

THE DONKEY ....

THAT WAS SUPPOSED TO HAVE CARRIED MARY

TO BETHLEHEM ,...HAD FINALLY SPOKEN...

..
The revelation was...

that a farmer had forgotten to turn OFF his cell phone ...

You can make suggestion all day long - it don't mean that they are viable.

Books are books and meant to be read. Just because one is read , it doesn't me I worship it.

I suggest you've been so wrapped up within Christianity you failed to recognize this.

FYI - Gnostic texts - as others have labeled them as such, contain alot of information. And if I recall my study - I really don't think that any of them reflect that the Bible or the texts that you suggest (non-canonical)- contain any statements that would direct a person to worship what they read.

Only so-called "Christians" think that they do. Sort of like you are doing.

Hmmmmm.

Oh yeah - one more thing to keep you honest.....

No one knows what or who "God" is, so if you were honest, you wouldn't have stated such a claim that "you know" what "God" is.

Wanna try again?

saying that, I can say honestly, that I have seen people often come and give their life to the Lord after hearing Blessed singers, singing in the Spirit and God Blessing.
so naturally , you will see objections from people that belong to the cults like coc.the devil doesn't want to see people use the talents that God has given them to bring people to God.
the Christian that loves the Lord, wishes to see people come to the Lord, and it doesn't matter if it is me, gif, Blessed singers, or the testimonies of the Church, that God uses.
the ONLY important thing is that People get Saved, by whatever means. and there are no shortcuts. I saw someone speak of a person NOT having to walk the aisle up to the altar to get Saved and this is the Truth. I have seen people get Saved, before they got to the Altar, and they still are in church, the wife got saved. the daughter got saved, her BF got Saved and NOW Pastors a Church in our Denomination.
It is the heart, not your location in the building, nor some horse trough. the heart and the heart only ,that brings a person to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. ROMANS 10.10 proves that the coc is not a church approved by God, since their doctrine doesn't agree with what God says.
No wonder you are "off track"!!!!!

It seems you are trying to prove a negative....
We do not need scriptural approval. Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen....
The hear the Word of God, one needs ears to hear. The act of hearing does not mean that one has faith automatically.
In one case, obedience to the scriptures brings one only so far, but it is repentance, a humble and contrite heart which God honors and bestows the grace of faith....
There is a certain need to be spontaneous in one's faith, which exceeds obedience to scripture as a set of rules. Certainly one learns from scripture and gains greatly from it, but one must live the scriptures, not just follow them....

Damn it....those are sure alot of efforts by a person to do.

You must mean Self, huh?

Maybe you should post the statements by Jesus that reflects what you state above to keep you and others honest enough to admit you are following Jesus and not some "false teacher".

All Christians that have FAITH that the bible is the word of a god, are biblical literalists.
The idea that all religion, including yours, is simple-minded philosophy, doesn't enter, and is not allowed to enter your mentality.
June

Its one thing to have FAITH in the Bible, and another to TRUST in the Bible.

But I would say you are onto something, that biblical literalists have faith in the Bible, which would make them idolaters.

Those who trust in the Bible, do so as an ongoing discovery, and development, which means that it is open to belief.

So I can't agree that religion is simple-minded philosophy. That just doesn't make any sense.

One of the main problems I see is that of the biblical idolaters, and those who have faith in Christ. In such a case, it seems to me, that biblical idolaters do not, or have not known faith in Christ.(Or at least their faith in Christ is very limited, even though they may believe in Christ.)

There's an old saying ... "Too many chiefs, and not enough Indians."
I suggest the same applies to preachers of religion. They all believe they are qualified theologians, and that others should be "followers" of their teachings.
We see that mindset on forums every day.
Ordained preachers of today don't have the respect in their churches as did preachers of old. The members of congregations are often argumentative concerning dogmas.
That is why there is approximately 38,000 Christian denominations, as more and more self-ordained preachers split of into more and more splinter-groups.
And yet as they preach, it seems they don't want to awaken to the idea that what they preach as truth is simply based on philosophy.
Self-perceived leaders aren't willing to be followers. So ... metaphorically stating ... there are too many chiefs and not enough Indians.
*blushing*

Aaawww June - you didn't have to do that.

Daniel 3
4 Then the herald loudly proclaimed,“Nations and peoples of every language, this is what you are commanded to do:
5 <<<As soon as you hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipe and all kinds of music, you must fall down and worship the image of gold that King Nebuchadnezzar has set up.>>>
Kin Nebuchadnezzar has set up and commanded....NOT GOD....
6 ~~~Whoever does not fall down and worship will immediately be thrown into a blazing furnace.”~~~
7 Therefore, as soon as they heard the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp and all kinds of music, all the nations and peoples of every language fell down and worshiped the image of gold that King Nebuchadnezzar had set up.
Look how God protected them because that would fall down to worship what King Nebuchadnezzar had set up....
28 Then Nebuchadnezzar said,“Praise be to the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, who has sent his angel and rescued his servants! <<<They trusted in him and defied the king’s command and were willing to give up their lives rather than serve or worship any god except their own God.>>>
29 Therefore I decree that the people of any nation or language who say anything against the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego be cut into pieces and their houses be turned into piles of rubble, for no other god can save in this way.”
30 Then the king promoted Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego in the province of Babylon.
So this portion of the Bible is a false teaching? I think that it is just a story and has lost its pizzazz as something viable for "truth". Don't you?

Afterall - you don't think you can still be "cut into pieces and their houses be turned into piles of rubble, for no other god can save in this way.”

You sound confused on what "God" inspired and what he didn't.

Why don't you specifically post those texts that "God" has indeed inspired, and then list the ones that "He" didn't? That way we can weed out those books that not guiding others.

You can do this, correct?

God finds a way to work in all of ya. And I'm sure it gets more and more difficult for Him with each passing generation. Hank is a good man who's simply doing what you and everyone before you have done: Taking some of the scriptures and forming a religion based on how you privately interpret it. That doesn't automatically warrant damnation. I'm sure the more truths you learn- but consciously ignore- doesn't factor well as you stand before God though.
You're right on musical instruments and he's recklessly wrong. Its a sin NOT to use ones musical ability for worship. God gave musicians the talent, they are obligated to use it for worship.
No my friend, he isn't right on the instrument use.I want you to truly listen to what you just said as authorization for the use of instruments over scripture, such as, Ephesians 5;19,Colossians 3;16 ,you have just told someone that it's ok to add instruments over the word of God, and here's what you said[,You're right on musical instruments and he's recklessly wrong. Its a sin NOT to use ones musical ability for worship. God gave musicians the talent, they are obligated to use it for worship.] What right do you have over scripture that authorizes singing only for you to blatantly tell someone that it's ok to use instruments , you actually have NONE. It's people like you on why we have thousands and thousands of man made churches come about, because what ever feels good is ok, friend you and others are the cause for false doctrine being used and have caused many, including yourself to be eternally lost by playing God instead of going according to scripture. I gave you scripture, you gave me your feelings ,which one do you really believe to be correct in the eyes of God?

Clay,
Do we consider musical instruments SPIRITUAL???
Of course not!
They are merely physical objects used simply for the outward effect of physical sounds (outward and physical.)
God is looking for the INWARD and SPIRITUAL.
Remember, The New Testament (New Covenant) is a spiritual covenant with spiritual emphasis, as how it relates to God, as in eternal life and salvation from sin.
Give me a break. Playing a instrument before God is a beautiful thing. Its a way to repay Him for the talent you were born with. And is CAN come from the heart.
There is no way around it, Hank. Your personal idea about instruments and worship is ridiculous. Psalm 150 from the word of God is clear. Its completely irresponsible for you to isolate two versus from the NT to undo Psalm 150. The Apostles never outlawed Musical instruments and you know it.
