Invisible Christianity

If you do not believe what the Prophets and Apostles wrote as letters that makes up the Bible then you have no Spiritual understanding of the truth found in those letters. We are not to go by doctrines of man in whatever flavor of church doctrine you are taught, but to study the word of God for what has already been written by the Prophets and Apostles.

2Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
2Timothy 2:16 But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.

1John 2:27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.

None of us can do anything of our own self, but anything we do as a servant of God comes by His power and authority given to us as the Holy Spirit works in us and through us for the purpose of God's ministry.

Of course but they still show us the way to salvation and have care for our souls

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

It's only through the Holy Spirit working through others that teaches us the way to salvation through Christ alone who is our salvation.

I’m not opposing that of course

What is the point of loving God if we can't do anything of ourselves to show it ?
Me, personally, I am not a gold-fish in a tank.

Who is working in those that still commit sin ?

I was talking about salvation through Christ as there is no other way. Also talking about the Holy Spirit that works through others to help teach us.

We've been through the Apostle thing many times, so I will not keep repeating myself with you. If it wasn't for the Apostles witnessing and testifying about Christ with the letters they wrote to the body of Christ we would have no NT.
 
Men don’t have authority to teach?
Hey All,
Doesn't Peter give everybody the authority?

1 Peter 3:15-16 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:
Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.

Keep walking everybody.
May God bless,
Taz

Power and authority is given to us by God's grace and through the power of the Holy Spirit for Gods purpose and his timing in our lives as we serve him daily within his ministry like Peter and all the Apostles. I’m not just talking about a pulpit ministry, but each individual ministry within us all as we reach out to others with the gospel through the works we are to continue in for the Lord to bring glory and honor to his name. The works are simply to feed the hungry, clothe the naked and visit those who are in their own prisons as when we do this we are doing it unto the Lord.​

OK.
I just wince at sayings that deny us the honor, privilege, and pleasure, of serving God with our own free will.

We must still have apostles until Christ returns Matt 28:19 acts 1:8

The teaching of the apostles is the rule of faith of Christians acts 2:42

Hey All,
You are missing the point. Peter says that you, me, everybody who is a believer, needs to have Jesus set apart in our heart. We also need to be ready with an reason for the hope of the gospel of Jesus that we have.

This is not limited to select men; but to all.

Also, I disagree that we have apostles today.
There are twelve, and I believe that to be scriptural.

Revelation 21:14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

Revelation says twelve. That is what I go by.

By the way, Matthew 28:19 does not support additional apostles.

Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

Jesus is not telling the apostles to anoint other apostles. Jesus personally anointed Paul. Paul is the last recorded anointing directly by Jesus.

Keep walking everybody.

How did Peter and the apostles teach the USA? 1776

Jesus converted the fundamentalist Saul that way cos that’s the only possible way

In Pride presumption and arrogance he was persecuting Christ thinking he was acting righteously and doing God’s will!
