I'm curious as to why someone would acknowledge that God tells them differently via The Bible, but knowingly disobeys? Why bother to try and have a relationship at all with Jesus? The whole point of having a relationship with the Lord is to please Him and gain eternal life. And yet, this statement totally goes against that. Is the concept that one part of the Bible is more important than others? Curiouser and curiouser.
I never believed there were Christians who held really nutty faux-biblical beliefs until I came to FR.
I, too, would like to know whether some view certain parts as more or less important, timeless, applicable, optional, or something else. For instance, some people actually believe that the words attributed to Jesus are more important than the rest. (I have no reason to suspect that's what we have here, though.)
Thanks for asking the question, and for the ping.
This off-topic section of the thread has gone completely batty. I am not devoting enough time to it (becuase it is not what the article I posted was intended for). Direct me to the woman in church thread and I'll give it my all.
Hopefully for clarity sake:
When I kneel at the throne of God and he judges me, I am confident of my entry into heaven.
I rely on his grace....completely understanding my sinful nature. I do not mock the sacrifice of our Lord Christ.
You should maybe re-read my posts to gain a better understanding of my position concerning women in the church. Beyond that maybe just let it go as an incomplete thread...judgement is Gods not yours.
If you think you got enough info to label me or call into question my faith...have at it. I'll be your dart board. I got big enough shoulders to handle it.
Have you ever mentioned a doctrine or even a lifestyle rule to a person and had them reply with "Don't put God in a box?". I hate it when people do that. What they are doing is inventing their own Gods when they disregard what the bible says and make God be what they want Him to be.
