What Are Your Christian Non-Negotiables?

Post #1

Post by ElCodeMonkey »

To be "saved", what are the absolute non-negotiables? What must you absolutely do, believe, trust, say, etc? Jesus died for sins, Jesus is God, Belief in Trinity, Baptism, etc, etc. What cannot be ignored for salvation?

Could you possibly be mistaking a gift of the spirit for a spot of undigested beef? Timothy had some stomach problems there's absolutely no shame in it.

May the road always come up to meet you, my most sincere regards to you and yours,


Slave of the Most High,

:-k
So you are stating that the only influence in the JW from the Holy Spirit's anointing is on the select few that prepare the propoganda? How sad.

It also implies that if they are led by demonic spirits instead, that influence is propagated throughout the entire denomination without the right to test the spirit behind that teaching. How convenient for the enemy and how against scripture that is. We are commanded to test the spirit behind any teaching. Your saying a JW isn't allowed to test the spirit behind any teaching because it is automatically from Yah to begin with. Again, how sad you are forced into disobedience. So unity of belief trumps truth or the ability to even test the teaching.

Yeshua didn't say He came to bring unity but conflict. Without conflict, you cant test and overcome error. Without overcoming, there is no spiritual growth. Again, how sad.

Do not use your faith as a Spiritual weapon against others on these boards. Accusations of demonic influence against others and their denominations here has not place on a debating site. Pay particular attention to the portion I bolded in the quote. That is personal and crosses the line.

-The real Jesus is not God, the real YHVH is not a monster.

I am inspired by Jesus to worship none but YHVH, and to serve only Him.

Come Lord Jesus.

“Do not give what is holy to dogs nor throw your pearls before swine, so that they may never trample them under their feet and turn around and rip you open." Matt 7:6

"Now I urge you, brothers, to keep your eye on those who create divisions and causes for stumbling contrary to the teaching that you have learned, and avoid them." - Romans 16:17

Detractors say they are here to help others...we know better.

"Everyone who pushes ahead and does not remain in the teaching of the Christ does not have God. The one who does remain in this teaching is the one who has both the Father and the Son. If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your homes or say a greeting to him. For the one who says a greeting to him is a sharer in his wicked works." - 2 John 9[/quote]

And do not use Scripture to rebuke, insult, dismiss, or admonish others. At least not here on this debating site.

Truth from a JW? I just trample on false teaching when and where I find it.

I am allowed to test the spirit behind any teaching (Thank Yah) and find that I will not listen to lying spirits and demonic doctrines.

Your post here contains infractions on many levels. These lines I quote from you are especially inexcusable.

Consider this a heads up for a final warning. Your next infraction could well trigger that final warning.

It's not very nice to call someone "smarmy" either. Not civil. Please refrain.
