DVM

Where did you grow up? Ohio How did you come to be interested in spiritual things? I was raised in a "traditional" family, church on Sunday sort. It became habit on which I followed through. I am finally taking steps to affirm why I believe the things I believe. Do you have any affiliation to a par...

Re: Fear and Worship

As I have continued in my quest to understand "worship", many of it's uses in the Old Testament seem to separated worship from the acts traditionally thought to be worship. Consider the following verses: Deuteronomy 26:1-10; the firstfruits offering (the sacrifice) is a separate action from worship ...

Re: The second serving of the Lord's supper

This issue has been giving me concerns for a long period of time also. I finally came to realize this issue is not addressed in the scriptures. There are 3 options. (1) it was practiced and was not a sin, (2)it was practiced and was a sin, (3) it was not practiced during the first century. The secon...

Re: Should a confession be made before baptism?

Amen, sister! If the Eunuch in Acts 8:37 is not an approved account of action, then I don't know what is. As for the confession commanded by Jesus, it is simply that; confessing who Jesus is and your belief in Him and His power to save before your fellow man! What newly convicted believer would not ...

Re: what is the real issue?

How can one use the treasury to conduct weddings and funerals, because during the ceremony, "the unbelieving can be exposed to the word and love of God", without also justifying schools, hospitals, and other missions of mixed social and spiritual missions using the same reasoning? ... Ultimately, m...

Re: Fear and Worship

I'm not sure what version of the scriptures that Jesus quoted. It would be interesting to know. However in the Septuagint version of Deuteronomy 6:13, the root word is "Phobeo". Defined by Strong's - to reverence, venerate, to treat with deference or reverential obedience . Either word "yare" in the...

Re: Funerals & Weddings

I agree authority is an absolute. If a congregation decides to build a building, the building's use becomes a matter of stewardship, using God's resources wisely. The major expense in the endeavor has already passed, the cost of construction. If the individual members are authorized to use the build...

Fear and Worship

When Jesus was tempted by Satan as recorded in Matthew 4:1-11, He quoted scripture to refute Satan's attacks. In the last temptation Satan requested Jesus to worship him. Jesus quoted Deuteronomy 6:13, "You shall fear the LORD your God and serve Him...". As recorded by Matthew 4:10, "...You shall wo...
