Arguing with the God haters on facebook

Q Arguing with the God haters and oneness mockers on facebook… With so much argument on facebook with trinitarians, are we being led into a trap where we are just waiting out time and getting onto argument rather than seeing souls won to the Lord. What’s your opinion? 

A. For my response to this I will repost some notes I listed in  One God Apostolic Pentecostals on facebook entitled: 
The quickest way to shut down Trinitarian arguments on facebook is to refrain from replying. I can’t help but think that most want want likes and replies more than answers and truth…. such is a trend by facebook users who love arguments but have no interest in truth. I’ve seen our brethren quote scripture after scriptures yet still they refuse the truth and continue the argument. Do these guys really want truth, of course not. they want attention, they want to waste your time and make you look crazy. So what’s the best approach, stay away from arguments. Didn’t Paul say that in scriptures? avoid them, I’ve got better things to do haven’t you?

Additional Note: I was a trinitarian, but I got on my knees for six months and sought scriptures I read John and Isaiah over and over again, I asked no man for his ideas and I avoided argument. I wanted truth and found it in scriptures. My point here was any genuine seeker of truth will first go to scriptures not force an argument on facebook

Why Do some Preachers Preach only Acts 238?

Q.Why do some preachers preach only acts 238 every time they post on facebook. Shouldn’t we broaden our knowledge on the gospel and use the many other subjects topics and bible books to expound the gospel?

A.Yes I agree we should and we can and yes of course we should preach Acts 2:38 but there are many who  give us the appearance that they have no knowledge outside of Acts 2:38, To be an effective minister we have to broaden our boundaries. The whole bible reveals the oneness of God and the whole bible reveals the fulness of Gods truth whether that’s in type or shadow substance or parable, prophecy or psalm Preach the gospel as is and share the bible in all its glory and story, the whole book contains the gospel, iAs we expand our “topical how” we. increase our ability to convince and persuade. So stick to acts 238 or the apostles doctrine and BUILD ON that foundation using the whole bible. For example I am doing a mini commentary of Romans and Ephesians based on the apostles doctrine revealing how Paul was really showing the importance of building on this wonderful truth and going further into the knowledge of Christ, ie with his doctrine fo the new creation and justification and redemption. The whole bible unlocks  our foundational truth and we should not fear going deeper into wider paths yet sticking to the narrow way. This is how he he Paul was able to be persuasive and effective as a preacher awning many cultures and peoples. a lesson for us all. Blessings always

Of course we should but the whole bible reveals the oneness of God and the whole bible reveals the fulness of Gods truth whether that’s in type or shadow, substance or parable, prophecy or psalm. Preach the gospel as is and share the bible in all its glory and story 

The whole bible is a  revelation of the oneness of God and contains truth as our gospel message.  Paul told us it was  so for he says in his letter to the Romans, “Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God, (Which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures, Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh (Romans 1;1-3).  So as we go further into the scriptures we are still keeping the truth and still preaching Jesus while at the same time broadening our knowledge and increasing our capacity to influence

As we expand our “topical how” we increase our Capacity and ability to convince and persuade. So stick to acts 2;38 and the apostles doctrine and build on that foundation using the whole bible. For example I am doing a mini commentary of Romans and Ephesians which I discovered is a letter in which, Paul writes to show us as believers, how to move on by building on this apostolic foundation, this is how he was able to be persuasive and effective as a preacher to many cultures and peoples, a lesson for us all. Blessings always

The Hair Issue and The Law

Pastor Nederi Duncan on oneness apostolic pentecostals worldwide on facebook posted this excellent question

Q. All Apostolic one God believers believes a woman should not cut or be shaven her one of our tribes when a family members dies every woman in that family must be shaven to proof that she has no hands in that death as a result of witchcraft.failure to accept to be shaven all fingers point at her and she is rejected !in such situation what does one supposed to do?

A.My response: This is an excellent question my friend. May I answer your question in two parts.

These “non essentials” cannot be applied to every culture or every woman. Paul’s advice was to a certain culture and women living that particular culture. He was not advising the American or British culture or African either. African ladies have short hair from birth there is no way for them to grow their hair long. Now how can Paul’s advice then, apply to them or be applied to them? The difference should always be seen in the differences between the fundamental law of God and the law of Moses . Laws that God gives man and laws that man gives man. A careful study of scriptures will then reveal what laws have been abolished by Christ at his coming in the flesh and Calvary And the law that continues today, ie the ten commandments, God’s laws, which is forever and should be obeyed by all including us today.

Moseslaw was the temporary, ceremonial law of the Old Testament. It regulated the priesthood, sacrifices, rituals, meat and drink offerings, etc., all of which foreshadowed the cross. (2 Chron 35;12). And indeed was abolished by it. Christ became the focus of our worship and praise. He becomes our ceremony we celebrate his everyday. We don’t worship days or holy days rather we worship him the creator of the day and the creator of our new day in him.

Moses law the law contained in ordinances (Ephesians 2;15) and God’s law called the royal law as in (James 2;8 Ex 31;13). For all irrespective of ordinances. Moses law added because of sin (Gal 3;19 Col 2;14) whereas God’s law continues for ever, Existing before sin (Ro 7;7 Ro 3;20) and should be obeyed forever. Finally then to conclude this brief introduction. Any old testament ordinance for man outside the Ten Commandments is fulfilled in Christ. The laws given to Moses ie the Ten Commandments is our guide forever. I Would then conclude that the law of women having long hair is not a law for us as the church today. Therefore it is for the woman to decide not the church how long a woman hair is. the same for a man too.

Why Did Jesus talk to God as if God was his Father and he was a Son

Q Why Did Jesus talk to God as if God was his Father and he was just a Son?

A Of course if he was just a Son we would have too many contradictions like Jesus forgiving sins, yet implying that God alone forgives sins. The pivotal truth of Christianity is God became flesh (1 Timothy 3;16) If he wasn’t God incarnate then Christianity is a fake religion! So why do we have
seemingly have contradictory scriptures where Jesus said “I thirst” and “I hunger” and he “rested a while!” If He was God with us?

Does God hunger does God thirst Does God need rest?  Of course right throughout the Old Testament this same LORD tells  he alone is God, so we have the LORD Jesus, the same LORD the only LORD, in the New Testament talking like a mere man! so why does he talk as a man if he’s

The answer lies in his dual nature. The duality of his being, him being both God and man allow him to suffer yet be our healer. His duality of nature allow him to die yet himself being the resurrection and the life. The duality of his nature allow him to thirst yet himself be the living water, the Holy Ghost that fills us all. The duality of nature allows him to be hungry yet he himself the bread of heaven that comes to every man. The dual nature allows him to be on earth yet speak as from heaven. The duality of nature allows him to be divine as well as human. The duality of nature allows him to be God while speaking as a Son.

Only Jesus can have the dual nature of both God and man


Rhema or Logos?

Q.Is the Logos and rhema two separate words from God?
A. I ask this question because if “rhema” and “logos” are two separate words then we have to deal with a problem, a God problem. John tells that the word was with God and the Word was God. (John 1;1) and this word became flesh and dwelt among us (V14). In the New Testament the Word was the same as the Word in the Old Testament. Revelation 19:3 tells us that “He” is called the Word of God. So the person of God is the Word of God, therefore how can there be a logos and rhema? Isn’t Jesus the one Word? The one of whom it is written about and he that also speaks to us today? (Hebrews 12:25).

Just provoking thought.
