I dont know the author or the book you have read but it seems to be the cause of this confusion, can I suggest then that this book is not of God?

The condemnation comes form satan the accuser of the bretheren, rebuke satan by quoting the scripture; there is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus. As many times as it takes. Ive said the scripture "all things work for Good to those who love the Lord and are called according to His puposes" thousands of times to myself.

God bless you.

I know what love is .. because God loved me first .
Im not afraid of the bible. Others seem afraid of it though. (perfect love casts out fear, he who fears is not perfected in love)The scriptures are good and holy, they show us our weaknesses, our sin, it guides us daily in the paths of righteousness, holiness, love and is inspired by God himself. What is there to fear in that?

What are we afraid of folks? Are we afraid of being reproved, rebuked, corrected or instructed? Afraid of perfection? Afraid of God and His doctrine?

2Ti 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
2Ti 3:17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

How can a person claim to be perfected in love yet still fear the scriptures?

2Ti 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
2Ti 3:17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.




1 John 2:3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. 4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. 6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked

1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

I like this post - especially the bit about soul ties, I completely agree! Have been a Christian for more than 20 years and only heard this expression fairly recently ....from a friend who did read a lot of Christian books! I am pretty sure this is not a biblical expression either.

I have found I am drawn to more testimony-based Christian writers that encourage - but are sound in scripture.

I think you being led by the Spirit to enjoy the Word and be guided by it is fab, definitely - especially as a newer Christian. And the Holy Spirit can speak to you about it through good teaching (heard I mean) as well - I guess that's pretty biblical as well

So do what any little munchkin would do: Keep your eyes on your Father.

Does x doctrine describe the same Father that Jesus described?

If yes, mull it over.

If no, toss it.

If you don't know, hand it to your Father and don't worry about it. He'll hand it back when you are 'big enough'.

It's a true act of trust to say, "I just don't know", and have faith that the Lord holds you up even still.

As you grow up with your Dad in heaven, you will learn the same discernment that Jesus showed. You will learn to see around spiritual corners like he did, and when a brand-spanking-new doctrine pops up, you'll be able to say, "there is nothing new under the sun!"

God bless, little brother. [/quote]





this has helped me because i am also just a baby in christ. thanks!

Solomon spoke from a fleshy perspective as the "old man" in Ecclesiastes. In Christ all things are new. The new nature on the inside of you brings a perspective Solomon never knew.

Of course you are right when God will show you when someone tries to add something on your God established foundation that does not fit, you will discern it. You must walk closely for this to happen. Even if you fall back somewhat, you'll get a sense that something isn't quite right.

God does still give revelation that is outside what we've currently known, but it does agree with everything that has gone on before. As one prophet pointed out, when John the Baptist came along preaching repentance and baptism for the remission of sins, that was "new" and not the prescription given by Moses. It was new revelation. Who knew you could have your sins forgiven outside of the yearly sacrifice? The religious minded (not relationship minded) opposed the "shift". God has some new shifts for His church as He is still the Head and many changes are coming to the Body. They will not by any means replace the gospel but our unity and worship and the exercise of the anointing will take on a powerful dimension that will seem "new". The latter house glory will exceed for the former one and we should make sure we're relationship minded and not religious so we will not be offended by the changes.

God intends to reveal many surprises to the church and even though we don't have new scripture, God still uses people like He did John and still catches people up to Heaven. God still sends people to make His ways known more perfectly.

But I guess now, this modern age where there are just so many (completely off-track) doctrines that sprang from the Christian faith. This is what I was talking about, the same way Paul talked about the church - a church back in those day at a teacher in the middle with people sitting around in a circle, and it involved dialogue aswell as each person singing their own hymn, praise and song but now when you look at the church in the modern-age it's either a mega complex where we sit in there to get wave after wave with no room for dialogue and sometimes some of us would like to share but we're not allowed unless we have gone through their system and it's sort of like, comparing the then and now. I think the now has gotten off-track as with doctrines but I believe the Holy Spirit works within everything for those who are seeking the Lord and in and amongst congregations, I don't know how the Spirit works but I do know boy, does it work! And eventually God's will prevail always! Oh yeah! Praise the Lord!
You make a great point about how the churches - the brick and mortar type - have changed the form of worship from the early church. That's why it's important to stay grounded in the Word of God, as that is where you will find the purest form of what God wants to tell us.....NOT from any preachers or TV pastors.

Many of them are teaching things that are NOT in God's Word. you are right to be wary of them.

Scripture says "Those who worship (God) must worship Him in Spirit and in Truth"
