Welcome back to the Christian Teen Forums. We have been upgrading our forum software and it took a lot longer than originally anticipated. Thank you for your patience.

We are still working to bring some add-on features back, so it will be a continued work-in-progress. If you have any questions, feel free to post and ask away.

  1. This study explains why although anyone is not saved by works, good works are still required to be performed. The study can be found in English here http://www.wisdomofgod.co/2017/07/08/giving-to-the-poor-and-the-necessity-of-good-works-and-bearing-good-fruit/ or in Spanish here http://www.sabiduriadedios.co/2017/07/17/dar-a-los-pobres-y-la-necesidad-de-buenas-obras-y-tener-buena-fruta/ . Let us begin a discussion on these matters.
  2. This study explains the necessity to seek the knowledge of God and to grow in wisdom and understanding. The study can be found in English here http://www.wisdomofgod.co/2017/06/29/the-word-of-god-belief-understanding-wisdom-and-the-full-knowledge-of-god/ or in Spanish here http://www.sabiduriadedios.co/2017/07/03/la-palabra-de-dios-creencia-entendimiento-sabiduria-y-el-completo-conocimiento-de-dios/ . Let us begin a discussion on these matters.
  3. That is not entirely true, because even though Jesus Christ called his mother "woman", "Woman, why do you involve me?" Jesus replied. "My hour has not yet come." (John 2:4 [NIV]) Even Jesus Christ said, He replied, "My mother and brothers are those who hear God's word and put it into practice." (Luke 8:21 [NIV]) So if your actual mother were to be doing the will of God, then she is of your true family in the Lord, to be as a "mother", irrespective of if she were your actual mother, where you would obviously not separate yourself from her since she is not of your true spiritual family. If she weren't, then yes, you must separate yourself from her, and thus fulfill, "hate mother for my sake". Herein is an example of rightly dividing the word of scripture. Someone who lacks understanding, does not understand this, nor understands that we do not drink actual blood when drinking the wine of the communion of the Lord in violation of the command of God, "you must not drink blood".
  4. Tell me, in which case would you break away from mother and father, if mother and father were in the assemblies of God with you helping you to spread the gospel, or if mother and father were unbelievers? The answer to this is the answer to the saying, "hate father and mother".
  5. She received the seven bowls of wrath of Revelation already? Haha, you know nothing, and you are in for a surprise very soon. I will let God be the judge of you, I have nothing further to say, I've already warned you.
  6. Yes, I suspected as much. Let us see how well it goes for you by not leaving her church or affiliation with her, And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. (Revelation 18:4 [NKJV])
  7. Have you never heard of figurative language and metaphors? Jesus Christ also said, unless you hate father and mother you cannot follow me. Is he saying hate your father and mother, or that you must be willing to give up everything, even perhaps father and mother, for the sake of Jesus Christ? Eating the flesh and drinking the blood of Jesus Christ is figurative, not literal, for drinking actual blood is forbidden, hence why this saying was so hard for many to bear, On hearing it, many of his disciples said, "This is a hard teaching. Who can accept it?" (John 6:60 [NIV]) But if you understood the figurative meaning behind it, then you would readily receive this teaching, while also understanding that drinking blood is still forbidden.
  8. Are you so slow to understanding that it is because of the blood that you cannot eat the meat, not because the meat is itself unclean as the scripture was referring to? You must properly drain the meat of all blood, then you may eat it. You, however, are condoning the practice of eating the meat with the blood, which the scriptures have forbidden from even before the Law was given to Moses. It is you who is twisting scripture, and by doing so you are advocating the consumption of blood. Again, shame on you.
  9. I have neither forbidden you to marry, nor told you to abstain from food, so it is you who is mutilating this passage to mean that it is permitted for you to drink blood. This topic is concerning the consumption of blood, which includes blood transfusions. Yet because you are a lawless man, who believes that the Law has been discarded, you readily refuse a simply teaching that it is sin to consume blood, even when this command has existed even before the Law was given to Moses, as a command given to Noah when all animals were given to him as food. Shame on you!
  10. The Roman church was not some separate empire that subjugated the Romans, it came forth from the Romans. To say that they are not related would be like saying that the Sephardi did not come from the Israelites, or that Americans did not come from the European colonies, etc. One came forth from the other, because they are related. There's a reason why its called the ROMAN church, having its history deeply rooted in the ROMAN empire, that then became the ROMAN church. You've made up your own history because you want to willfully not believe that the Roman church is actually the fulfillment of many prophecies in Revelation, because believing so would have shattering implications to what you believe. Are you one of those that are allied and friends with the catholics? Or one of those that regard and believe many of the teachings that had its origin from the catholic church, such as eternal torment in hell, or the teaching of the trinity? Or one of those that believe the entire Law of God has been abolished? Or one of those that disregards all the Jewish festivals in favor for Easter, Sunday worship, Christmas, etc? You have been deceived by the antichrist, and so deep is his deception that you don't even realize it is he, the pope, and believe in a Jesus that is not one taught in the holy scriptures.
  11. That you shouldn't drink blood is somehow heresy? How are you a staff member of a christian forum? Shame on you.
  12. The church conquered the Roman empire? Haha. I can't with this ignorance.
  13. This study explains why it is a sin to eat or drink blood, along with the meat of any animal that still has its blood. The study can be found in English here http://www.wisdomofgod.co/2017/06/15/the-sin-of-the-consumption-of-blood/ or in Spanish here http://www.sabiduriadedios.co/2017/06/15/el-pecado-de-consumir-sangre/ . Let us begin a discussion on these matters.
  14. Have you not read history? Did the catholic church not come from the roman empire? Hello?
  15. You're ignoring the fact that the Roman pope still exists, so the Roman empire is not actually defeated, it is quite active today in a different form. It never ceases to amaze me how people like you will willfully ignore certain parts of history.
