  3. Please note there is a new rule regarding the posting of videos. It reads, "Post a summary of the videos you post . An exception can be made for music videos.". Unless you are simply sharing music, please post a summary, or the gist, of the video you wish to share.
  4. There have been some changes in the Life Stages section involving the following forums: Roaring 20s, Terrific Thirties, Fabulous Forties, and Golden Eagles. They are changed to Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, and Golden Eagles will have a slight change.
  5. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.
  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.
  7. There has been an addition to the announcement regarding unacceptable nick names. The phrase "Let's go Brandon" actually stands for a profanity and will be seen as a violation of the profanity rule in the future.

Hyper Dispensation / Hyper Grace Troubles

    Points To Ponder The Scriptures are the foundation of my faith.

    #1 Paul clearly tells us that others were in the body of Christ before he was. Romans 16:7

    #2 The Apostles were in the Body of Christ. 1 Corinthians 12:27-28

    #3 Paul tells us there is only one Body of Christ. 1 Corinthians 12:12-20

    #4 Jesus not Paul laid the foundation of the Body of Christ and those in the Body are of Christ. 1 Corinthians 3:11

    #5 The mystery was reveled to Paul by Jesus AND to the Apostles and Prophets by the Holy Spirit. Paul was not the only person who had knowledge of the mystery. The Hyper Grace movement always leave that part out of their message. Ephesians 3:5

    Hyper grace followers like to emphasize that Jesus told the 12 Apostles to preach to the Jews. Of course he did. The mystery was not reveled yet. How could Jesus have told the 12 to go forth and preach salvation by faith to both Jew and Gentile before the mystery was reveled?

    The mystery was reveled by the Holy Spirit to the Apostles for a reason. Why? For the same reason Jesus reveled it too Paul. Why would God tell the 12 of the mystery but not have them to preach it? Hyper grace followers like to be selective when they apply WHO, WHAT, WHEN ,WHY and WHERE logic.

    Hyper grace followers demand that you rightly divide the word of truth. Paul gave that command to Timothy in 2 Timothy 2:15. Hyper grace followers demand that we understand WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE and WHY as we read the New Testament. If we take their advise when reading 2 Timothy 2:15 we can clearly see that Paul is telling Timothy (not you and I according to their logic when applied to the Gospels) to rightly divide the word of truth. The fact is that the only thing Timothy could rightly divide was the Old Testament and Pauls letters. Not the epistles of Peter or John or the Gospel of Matthew, Mark, Luke or John because they were not penned or available to Timothy. Paul preached from the Old Testament scriptures that pointed to Jesus and he preached his revelation from Christ.

    Hyper grace followers want you to believe that the Apostle Paul and the 12 Apostles were preaching different doctrine. This of course was the case before the mystery was reveled. Paul was killing Christians and the 12 were preaching the coming Kingdom. Post revelation of the mystery to both Paul and the Apostles everything changed. One needs to study the timeline of when scriptures were written including the epistles of all authors of the New Testament and understand that after the dispensation of grace and the mystery was reveled to them all of them it is absolutely possible that the 12 were spreading the new message of salvation by faith to both Jew and Gentile. Not before it was reveled but after.

    In 1 Corinthians 1:12 Paul is rebuking the church members in Corinth on who they follow. Apollos, Cephas (Peter). Is it not possible that some members of the Church in Corinth were saved by the preaching from Peter? Did some members hear a message from Peter while in another location, Jerusalem possibly? From Apollos? Did Paul tell those who were followers of Peter that they were not saved? I do not see it. In 1 Corinthians 1:14 Paul says that he baptized Gaius. In 3 John 1:1 John mentions Gaius who HE Loves in Truth. I do not think Paul, Peter and John were preaching a different Gospel post revelation of the mystery. Seems to me they were on the same page sometime after the Holy Spirit reveled the mystery to them. Ephesians 3:5.

    The only way the Hyper Grace / Hyper Dispensation movement can add members is by having them rip from their Bibles everything expect the epistles of Paul. I pray that none of my brothers and sisters in Christ fall for this foolish doctrine.

    Christ was the firstborn among many. He will appear a second time to those who look for Him. He is the way the truth and the life. When it’s your time to be visited, that’s when it will happen.

    My understanding of hyper-Dispensationalism is that even the letters of Paul must be “rightly divided” between his Acts ministry and his Prison ministry. During the acts ministry, Paul was going “to the Jew first”. After Israel became Lo Ammi there was a dispensational change of agency, with Paul as the custodian: "….the dispensation of the grace that was given to me for you…"

    And will comment on the above FRIDAY , if I have time .

    Also all have to remember that Israel was set aside in 2 Cor 3:13-15 and Paul says UNTIL THIS DAY a VAIL is upon there heart .
