Dear Ms. Jennifer,
2.This is the second part of my message. For me there are not any divisions in Christianity. I do not divide the Church into different denominational parts. God is big enough to use even a church that was founded on false doctrine. I suppose it's all part of the human conditions; we are naturally defensive with regard to our beliefs. Actually, for me all the Christians in the world are divided into 2 groups (irregardless of what denominations they belong to) : 1) Born of the Spirit or born again Christians (in other words, saved), some would say: elected by God for eternal life, the others would say: those who are written in the Book of Life, -all the same; 2) Born of the flesh (in other words, unsaved), those who will say : ''Lord, Lord, ...'' as written in Matthew 7:22, 23 or those five foolish out of the ten virgins as written in Matthew 25:1-12 .
This is not at all what I am trying to say here. The Bible is full of deeply buried truths waiting to be mined by the spiritually sensitive person with special insight. In fact I am convinced that the single most serious problem people have with the God's Word is not with a lack of understanding but with the fact that they understand most things too well!. Let's see only 2 examples, with such texts as ,,Do everything without grumbling or arguing,, (Phil. 2:14) and ,,This people honors Me with their lips, but their heart is far away from Me. But in vain do they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the precepts of men,, (Matthew 15:8,9) (NASB), the problem is not understanding it but, putting it into practice and into the heart. Our great mistake is not that we fail to prepare our heads but that we don't prepare our hearts. The gospel flows through hearts. God,s Word does not need human wisdom. It does demand the love, the honesty, the lowliness and the cordiality. The heart, not the head, makes God's great preachers.
Yours in YESHUA HAMASHIACH, ilgar
Dear Ms. Jennifer,
1. I am afraid you didn't catch my thoughts properly. In your comments there are some subtle points that are open to misinterpretations. Actually, I am not a SOME, my name is Ilgar. I firmly believe you are not SOME either. I didn't mean to ''point an Accusing finger'' at you or anyone else. You see, I didn't even try to criticize the aforementioned lady- Helen Thomas. My Accusing finger points no at the person(s) but at the RELIGION. The greatest Enemy of True Religion Is Religion Itself. A person doesn't have to look very far to find examples of how modern denominations ignore Jesus' prayer for unity. Many people seem to have no problem with all the contradictory doctrines in the religious realm. Imagine what happens when an intelligent person sees so-called Christians claim that the Bible can be understood hundreds of different ways, and the amazing thing about it, each way is right if religious division is right! In truth, denominationalism has produced more atheism than all the atheists, and false teachers put together. Let me state at the point that it is not my intent to offend or ''bash'' either the Evangelical or Catholic Church. Just as it is impossible to accurately tell the story of the World War II without offending the Germans, Italians and Japanese, it is equally impossible to accurately tell the story of Christianity without unintentionally offending those who continue to revere the Roman Catholic and Anglican Churches. When we speak with the Jews of Messiah we are often forced to use the ancient Greek term of ekklesia instead of the word ''church'' , even the Messianic Jews often prefer to speak of the ''Body of Messiah'', because the word ''church'' has a Gentile ring to our ears, and is associated with the persecution and violence that come out from the medieval period when the Catholic Church was forcing most of the Jews living throughout medieval Europe to convert to Catholics with an act of violence.
