Well that's not true either. Covenant theology is not followed on international lines but on biblical divide. Independent baptists - of which are not one nor in any way equivalent - don't generally follow covenant or replacement theology. That is the domain of protestant churches.
How much more misinformation are you going to push? And despite all you say, without making that link to AD70 you have no basis to push your false doctrine.
Putting it off until later simply allows you to ignore it. Place your foundation and then build - not the other way around. Once again - put up or shut up.
His "understanding of Revelation" is based upon the link to AD70. If he can not establish that link then his entire premise does not stand, and he has no basis to Continue his teaching. Yet he ignores this fact, and ignores the fine post by Scott which totally tore down his assumption, and he continues to "teach" although he has no foundation upon which to build.
He MUST establish this link or else he can not continue this line of teaching.....
I have to say that for someone who is trying not to offend and to portray themselves as "friendly" to say something like the below is interesting. ". I am thinking of Inquisition and also of prophecy about to be fulfilled." I find it very offensive to be likened to the inquisition, especially since I am asking only for reasonable information so that we can discuss from a position of understanding instead of blind.
It just looks more and more like you are Hiding information so that we can not understand the real meaning of your statements. I also find it a worry that someone would come fresh to a website and commence teaching - particularly in light of the fact you are not IFB but presume to use this site as a platform to teach. I would suggest that you find a platform better aligned to your unknown affiliations.
It really is quite simple - if you want to have profitable discussion here, it would help us greatly to know your basis. And every false teacher who comes here with an agenda claims they base on the Scripture. I gave you an example of why I want to know. My mind has been made suspicious because of your evasive actions.
If you have nothing to hide, then for the sake of clarity and understanding, make your affiliation plain.
Why can you not plainly tell us your affiliation? - there are a myriad of statements that could fit this bill including many which you may make in the future. Rather than us having to examine every single statement and ask you to explain every single statement, if you would supply this reasonable and simple information we may KNOW from what point of view you are posting. It is a general thing, not specific.
I am afraid that the more evasive you are about it, the more sinister you appear to be. I don't want to put you into that hole, but it seems like you are desperately trying to hide this information. Why?
If you have nothing to hide, then why are you hiding it?
I do not "feel that way" about you - this is my attitude towards any book, any movie, any information I get. I check to see who the author is and what affiliations he has. A Catholic and a mormon can say exactly the same thing but mean entirely different things by it. And both will mean something different to what I would understand from the statement. If you will give us this basic - and reasonable - information then we can understand what you mean by your various statements. Without that information we may, and most likely will, misunderstand you. So there is no point reading your posts if I am not going to understand your meaning of those phrases. So, let us know your affiliation, and we can put your statements into context.
But to serve as leaders. The problem is they have forgotten the servant part of leadership. For instance, if all the people wanted to legalise murder (for a stupid example), should the representative simply serve the people's will, or should he stand and lead them into a right course?
This is the problem - they have twisted these things around and neither lead NOR serve correctly, for they tend to serve the people's will in unrighteousness and impose their will for their own profit. The men in these positions need to serve the people in righteousness and lead them in righteousness.
But are they not elected to lead the nation? Is that not the form their servanthood takes? I understand what you mean when they have forgotten that they are servants, but their service takes that form. A bit like a pastor, who is the servant but in a place of leadership - AND he is warned not be a "Lord".
It is definitely "out of whack" in the way most national leaders regard their job and are regarded in their job. In this we are in agreement.
When someone is so reticent to share even basic information about themselves, it makes me suspicious of their motives. In truth I have not read the majority of your posts in this thread and will not do so until I have the information to understand your basic position. It is only on that basis that I can know what you mean when you use certain phrases. Without that knowledge it is useless to read such things as you may not intend the meaning to common phrases that I understand of them. Please give us a salvation testimony and maybe the church affiliation you have.
After I know what direction you are posting from I may consider replying. I will point out to you that Satan on occasion correctly quoted Scripture, but he still did it for nefarious cause. The use of Scriptures in itself does not mean that Scripture is properly used.
I'm a funny one - I like to know something about people before I comment much on their posts. Without understanding a bit about their bases it can be easy to misunderstand their meaning. I have found that the same statement made by two different people can carry different meanings. So I will withhold my comments until I understand you a bit better.
I hadn't checked there this morning, but it is not much of an intro. How about letting us know a bit about yourself. Your testimony of salvation for instance, what state you live in maybe, maybe what church you go to??????
I wonder if you would consider heading across to the introduction section and letting us know a bit about yourself? It is the normal thing to do when a person joins a forum, and I am sure people would like to know about how you were saved for instance.
