NEW TESTAMENT AUTHORITY (5)

By this time, you may be wondering, well, just how do we ascertain “New Testament Authority,” as there are no commandments? This is true even with the Lord’s Supper, which we will continue to use as an example. There are no commandments: 1) thou should take the Lord’s Supper on the first day of the …

NEW TESTAMENT AUTHORITY (4)

On what day is the Lord’s Supper to be taken, according to NEW TESTAMENT AUTHORITY? Of course, all who read this article will answer: “On the first day of the week.” Now where did you and others get your authority to answer in this manner? Is there a text that says, Christians are to partake …

NEW TESTAMENT AUTHORITY (3)

“I propose that in the Lord’s Supper, that we use cornbread and buttermilk!” Yes, not many would agree to use these two items for the Lord’s Supper, but I ask why? If as Martin Luther proposed, that if the Bible does not forbid it, then, that is authority for it. No where in the New …

NEW TESTAMENT AUTHORITY (2)

“If the New Testament does not forbid it, then, that is authority for it!” Have you ever heard this? Well, think about it for a while; no, really give some thought to it! More than likely you have never heard anyone ask this question. Sometimes it is not put forward in this strong a statement …

NEW TESTAMENT AUTHORITY (1)

Every generation questions those who have gone before them, and how they ascertained authority. In America, it started with those who were seeking the church they read about upon the pages of the New Testament; as there was much division in the denominational world; just as there is today! It needs to be clear in …

LOVE (5)

At times, our words deceive us! What is meant by this? Think about the word “love” under which we are writing. Have you ever heard, or said, “I love my dog?” Then, later you say, “I love God.” This has never seemed to be right to my feeble ears! How about your ears? Let us …

LOVE (4)

How “much” must a husband love his wife? Paul will answer our question, as he wrote: “Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it” (Eph. 5:25). Husbands really need to think deeply, as they study this verse. The love the husband is to have for his wife, …

LOVE (3)

Love does not mean approval nor acceptance! We do not have to look any farther than God himself! The “golden text” expresses this very clearly: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). There is not …

LOVE (2)

In this second article on love, we need to learn what kind of love is more demanding of us! We have looked, ever so briefly, at the three Greek words translated love. Just to refresh your memory, they are: 1) Agape, 2) Philia, AND 3) Storge. There is a fourth Greek word (Eros) translated “love” …
