    It's not only me with whom you disagree.

    Falls somewhat short of addressing Jesus' words which likewise disagree with you
    big time in the above.

    Non-responsive.

    As I said, if you are unwilling to quote the KJV, we can move on.

    Falls somewhat short of addressing Jesus' words which overwhelmingly show your abuse of
    Galatians 2:7-9.

    Do you realized what you should actually say is I fell "somewhat short of addressing my interpretation of Jesus' words"?

    The words I included in bold is what, if you have an open mind, should be including.

    It is not a matter of choosing. It is a matter that is to be decided by what is written.

    Joshua 24:14-15 (NIV)
    14 “Now fear the Lord and serve him with all faithfulness. Throw away the gods your ancestors worshiped beyond the Euphrates River and in Egypt, and serve the Lord. 15 But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.”

    Great verses! However They have nothing to do with what we are talking about. A given verse says what God intended. We are not to choose what we want but go by what is written if possible

    Good morning. I see what you mean. My thought was that the Passage was relevant. God's intention is for us to choose what He has already fully revealed in His Word, rather than leaning to our own opinions.

    Blessings

    Assertion without Biblical demonstration is assertion without Biblical merit.

    Non-responsive.

    It falls to you to Biblically demonstrate where I am in disagreement with NT teaching.
    This you have not done, and cannot do.

    In order to demonstrate to you, you must first show that you can accept that your view is just one of the many views out there.

    You can explain to others but you cannot understand for others.

    Non sequitur.

    The same can be said of Jesus' statements.
    Non-responsive, again.
