    jesus didn't condone proselytizing; whether they were pharisees, or scribes. a scribe was anyone and everyone who interpreted the jewish law. a scribe could be anyone.

    jesus called his followers to serve all, he didn't call them to serve themselves. he even pointed this out about himself.


    Matt 20:28 NIV just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”


    giving one's life to service is selfless.

    Rev 3:20-Rev 3:22 KJV Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

    Sorry, but you are all over the place, especially when you add words to Scripture. I have asked you a number of questions related to your slanderous nonsense and you refuse to answer them.

    So, I will consider this conversation over.

    If you post more lies and egregious myths, I will point them out.

    I honestly don't believe in the version of Satan who is a fallen Angel working in opposition to God. If there is a Satan, I believe that it is a side effect of God's desire for free-will. In that way everyone accidentally serves Satan unintentionally sooner or later. No one is perfect.

    Respectful Question: Does Fundamentalist Christianity believe that anyone who denies Jesus Christ as LORD and savior is a partner with Satan?

    I don't believe in Satan and I'm Episcopalian. I think you are going to get answers all over the place. This is the 21th century. Jews , or some Jews, consider Satan to be an agent of God.

    Some consider Satan to be the impulse in humankind to do bad things.

    "Here is my servant whom I have chosen, the one I love, in whom I delight; I will put my Spirit on him, and he will proclaim justice to the nations.


    looks like to me he calls himself a servant and was sent by god to serve the nations, not just christians

    I cannot speak for all, but I can speak for myself.

    No, though we all can be used and manipulated by him. A Christian is aware of the trap and has tools to defend himself, though it can be difficult at times.

    Others, not knowing of the trap, are more likely to get caught.

    Satans greatest accomplishment is convincing people he doesn´t exist.

    With respect, if you believe satan is not as Christ and the Apostles described him, what other parts of the Bible do you choose to jettison , and why ?

    Although the word "fundamentalist" is used in a negative and derogatory way that is not the original meaning of the word. The root word is fundamental and some synonyms are: essential, basic, vital, and elementary. I believe living in line with the fundamentals of God's word are the only way to be a true servant...

    I’m a fundamentalist…and I hope that all who consider themselves to be biblical Christians would declare that as well. The term, however, is used in a derogatory way by many people today. I don’t know why, other than the fact that many simply don’t like Christianity, especially biblical Christianity. But regardless of what its detractors think, fundamentalism is a very valuable concept.


    Let me give you an illustration from the sports world. During the college and pro football seasons, the teams’ schedules usually include a bye week. That’s a week that has no game scheduled, so it’s dedicated to practice, and the practices rarely involve tricky new plays. Instead, the focus is nearly always on returning to the fundamentals of the sport.


    Throughout the season, players often drift away from fundamental techniques and develop some bad habits that decrease their effectiveness. But sports aside, if one’s fundamentals are wrong in anything, the results aren’t going to be good.

    Lazarus was Jesus boyfriend.. Here's the evidence.

    [video]


    1. Lazarus, not John, was the disciple whom Jesus loved ...
      www.alanrudnick.org/2017/04/13/john-was-not-the-disciple-whom-jesus-loved
      Lazarus
      , not John, was the disciple whom Jesus loved. Traditionally, John the Gospel writer was the disciple whom Jesus loved. However, upon closer study, there is another follower of Jesus that is a stronger candidate that you have likely not considered: Lazarus.

    2. Disciple Jesus Loved Lazarus - Jesus Christ
      https://www.allaboutjesuschrist.org/disciple-jesus-loved-lazarus-faq.htm
      Disciple Jesus Loved Lazarus. Later, Peter and the unnamed disciple enter at “the palace of the high priest” (John 18:15-17), but while Peter leaves after denying Jesus three times, we only see the one “whom Jesus loved” leave after he is given another charge by Jesus -- when he leaves the foot of the cross with Jesus’ mother (John 19:27-29).
