      Sorry, I do not know how to operate the conversation mail on my profile. I got it on my email.
      Thanks for all your help. Your very smart.

        Thanks but not really, just been at it while. I intend to post something in a little while that might also be helpful. Something I think I just figured out.

        Plus you're very knowledgeable scriptures, I commend you for that. You might work on being a little more succinct.

        Thank you for the Colossians 1:13 scripture. I was not aware of that one.

      You are very sharp on the word of God my friend.
      I highly respect your devotion to the Lord.

        What I've been seeing is that the by grace alone through faith alone participants seem to connect dots to make a hypothesis, and close that hypothesis with a conclusion instead of scripture. I often try to find the best way to express that this method does not suffice to make it Biblical and anything less than a scripture stating what they're saying cannot make it Biblical. It's just eisegesis.

        One example of this method is rrobs' Hebrews hypothesis that baptism with water was no more than a shadow of the baptism with the Holy Spirit to come. He tries to connect dots to make this case, in lieu of scripture which doesn't exist, that actually states what he's saying.

      Hello, are you a Mormon? or are you truly a member of the church of Christ? I am myself a member of the COC. I hope you are doing well.

        I'm not a Mormon, God forbid. I am a member of the International Churches of Christ (ICOC). Not the International Christian Church (ICC). If you belong to the Mainline COC, we may have some subtle differences, but nothing significant in my mind. I am happy for us to work alongside each other. I respect also that you have been civil in your discourses here.

        I'm guessing you mean my thread about the blood touching people.

        Yes. That was my post about asking how the governing body of JW know angels do not appear any more. Were you ever a JW? I was.

        Oh, yeah. I did say good point. I was never a JW, but I've spoken to many. I never knew they believed angels don't visit anymore. Churches of Christ don't usually speak about it, but I don't think we're against the idea of angels still visiting. If someone can make a good case for something in the Bible, I'm open to hearing it.
