Unity or Division

Learn how to “rightly divide” the scriptures…

A Quiet and Peaceable Life

I often think the only way to learn the truth in God’s word, is to step into the past, and see what the old preachers said decades ago.

I Corinthians 1:10 “Now I beseech you brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.”

I looked back to a preacher from the past and I found wisdom and understanding of the scriptures in his sermons.  Albert Sidney Higgins was this preacher’s name.  He began preaching in 1906 in the Church of Christ and he preached into the 1960’s. He published a book in 1961 – “What The Bible Says.”  Albert Higgins always used the King James Version of the Bible.

People believe miracles still happen today.  This is contrary…

    I have received some comments on this post. Telling me there is no proof miracles have ended. I choose not to argue with those who misunderstand God’s word – it is generally unproductive to try to sway most people. I guess you have to know how many religious conflicts I have fought – to understand – Matthew 7:6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

      I have had much the same experience as you have. Some people just want to debate and argue their point…they aren’t interested in listening to reason. In fact they don’t want to listen at all!

      All we can do is present the biblical truth from the word of God. If someone wants to dispute it, they fight with God, not us. It is hard to say what the right thing is to do. However, I take the same approach as you do. I see no advantage to arguing with such people…

      Best to just end your communication with them and leave things up to the Lord.

    miracles still happen today for specific purposes but #1, for the glory of God!

      I tend to agree with the fact that God can make anything better when it is His will. But the point is that people don’t have the miraculous powers to instantly heal people and raise the dead, and so on today.

      Those things were done in the first century as a sign that Christ, the apostles, and some others on whom the apostles laid on their hands were from God. Today we have the bible which is from God and instructs us.

      Tower and Flights shares continuing miracles but not as when Christ walked. But thru God’s continuing manifestations of glory and power. An interesting, thought provoking post, I must say,
