QuoteCurtis regurgitated...QuoteThe problem you are having in accepting truth is in the fact you trust in the arm of the flesh to get your understanding.
That is the same old nonsense that every person holding to Reformed nonsense theology falls back onto. the problem with your attempt is that it is based upon lack of education...and lack of the Spirit. Biblical Hermeneutics is a means of ensuring that what the Spirit has lead someone to believe is in fact what the writings of the Scriptures are teaching...and it works marvelously because the principles therein help to demonstrate where people who hold to false teachings go haywire...
My response in red...it is hard to discern what you are saying because you are not utilizing the forum format very well...with that said...
Hermeneutics, is a method that takes the place of the Holy Spirit. Since man can not figure out what the Word of God is saying so they revert to man made methods to try and make sense of what only the anointing can teach.
Negative, you don't know what you are talking about, but nice try. Hermeneutics does NOT replace the Spirit, it is a tool for us to be able to confirm what the Spirit is telling us, and a tool to demonstrate the fallacies of folks who are teaching false doctrine...such as you are doing.
Hermeneutics initially applied to the interpretation, or exegesis, of scripture. It emerged as a theory of human understanding beginning in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries through the work of Friedrich Schleiermacher and Wilhelm Dilthey. Hermeneutics began early on by Aristotle and Plato. It's name is derived by a Greek god called "Hermes" which means "Messenger of the gods I do not put my trust in any other God but one, and only in his ways of teaching scripture. Anyone who uses this method is not wise.
So you looked up what you never heard of before...I am almost impressed...but your fleshly mental attitude doesn't help very much.QuoteQuoteI NEVER trust in any man made designed philosophy about how to understand scripture. Ever hear of the "anointing"? Hermeneutics, has nothing to do with the Spirit of God or the anointing that teaches us all things.
Like I just said, hermeneutics ensures that what you think the Spirit is telling you is really what the Spirit means in the Scriptures. If you are only thinking that you have the Spirit of God in order to receive the correct intended meaning of the Scriptures, and we apply hermeneutics to your feeble interpretation and find that it is not what the Spirit's intended meaning in the Scriptures are, then we demonstrate that the spirit you are receiving from is NOT the Spirit of God. That is what John tells us to do in testing the spirits of people...whether they are getting their interpretations from Scripture from the Spirit of truth, or the spirit of error...and yours is not coming from the Spirit of truth.
No where in scripture will you find God using "hermeneutics" to teach anyone. It is only a man made formula that has no spiritual value. This is God's method anything else is not worth knowing.
that is almost laughable...God does not need to teach anyone with hermeneutics who has the Spirit indwelling them. Again, you don't know what you are talking about and fighting here because your pet bias is being threatened. If you don't have the Spirit of God in order to teach you the intended meaning of the Scriptures, and you have demonstrated in your posts that you do not, then hermeneutics is a way for me to show you the failings of what you cling to as truth, which is not. In that they have value...you just don't like that because you don't like your bias being kicked at.
1Jn 2:27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him..QuoteYes, and you take this passage out of context again, like everyone who tries to use it to say that what you think you know is truth. In context, John told his audience that those who abide in God have the anointing (the Spirit of God), and those do not need that anyone should teach them...and this is true. The problem is when someone comes around who only thinks he has God's Spirit, teaches nonsense false doctrines to others, and claims to have the Spirit guiding his interpretation when he does not. According to John, such a person is deceived...according to what you have written and demonstrated, you are not receiving from the Spirit of God.
Obviously, you do not have faith in God to provide his only method in teaching his Church by his Spirit, and have need of other man made methods which Paul warned the Church about.
Nice try but you fail again. I have complete faith in God to teach those by His Spirit who have His Spirit...but those who do not have His Spirit because they are not walking in obedience to Him in covenant relationship, but are therefore only THINKING they have His Spirit and believing what comes into their secular minds, need to have help. And that is what I have been trying to do...help you...but you see it as attacking and go on the defensive. If you do not approach the Scriptures with the attitude that you might be wrong, and willing to lay down whatever you have been taught in the past that is false, then you will NEVER come to the knowledge of the truth.
I already gave you the Scriptures that tell you who has and who does not have the indwelling Spirit of God, and if you throw them over your shoulder instead of taking them and applying them to your life, then you will never have the Spirit in order to guide you and teach you what He is saying. The choice is yours...remain in false doctrine that will take you to the lake of fire, or begin a heart search for God's truth.
Col 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.QuoteAgain you demonstrate that you misinterpret the Scriptures. Paul here is addressing Judaism, and here you are trying to apply it to things today, such as education...you are teetering upon disaster. The Spirit is not the one who causes you to do anything, He only gives you the necessary strength to do what you want to do for God, He does NOT cause you to do it. That is more fleshly false teaching of Reformed theology.
You error, Paul is not addressing anything as the Word of God was written by the Holy Spirit not man.
See, you do it again here. The Spirit is writing the Word of God through Paul's hand...that is why it is called "inspiration"...because the Spirit did NOT pick up a pen and paper and write it Himself, now did He? Come on, think like a mature adult and apply your brain here!!!
The Holy Spirit is warning his Church from such individuals who would pervert his Word from what it really says. Since the Holy Spirit is it's author, only he can tell us what he was thinking when he wrote it.
Not true most of the time. That is false Reformed teaching again. When we can read and understand the original language that the apostles wrote the Scriptures in, along with its grammar and historical background...etc...then most of the time we can tell EXACTLY what the Spirit means in the Scriptures. If it was as you claim, no one would be following God today because no one had the Spirit of God BEFORE they were saved. NO ONE.QuoteIn my post I am speaking from the perspective of one who walks in God's presence, who has fellowship with God because I walk in obedience to His commandments of the New Covenant, which you have denied. Therefore, I walk with Christ and in His Spirit who guides and verifies what I have come to believe because I abide in the covenant where the gift of the Spirit of God is given. When you ceased to abide in Christ, you ceased to have the indwelling Spirit of God in order to guide you into all Scriptural truth, that is what the Scriptures clearly and plainly teach...and I listen, rather than cling to the false doctrines that I, like you, was once taught.
I hate to tell you, but I don't believe you. The way, and method you use to speak on this forum is not in how the Wisdom that is from above speaks, and it is evident to all here.
Actually, what is evident to all here is that you can't handle having your bias kicked at, and that by sound interpretational principles. Jesus raised His voice and made a whip of chords when the situation called for it, He didn't speak to everyone in love because some people don't respond to love. I began in love, and your attitude in stiff-necked arrogant pride results in harshness. I don't want it that way...so I will try again.
You, on the other hand, need to stop rebutting out of pride and arrogance that you know it all. I certainly don't know it all, but I know my field of study, and brother you are smack dab in the middle of it. Therefore I think that I know a little more about this than you do, and a wise person would listen to someone who is more educated than himself. Yes, I used the word educated...just like Paul did about himself. Education is NOT antithetical to God's Word, it is an asset.
Let's see what you come back with...shall we start over?
