 Is God History?

God is His Word, but when scriptures from the Old Testament are used to show a Truth. Religious leaders want to convice others that they refer to the past, unless they want to use the verse for their own purpose, then it's NOT History.
God is His Word and His Word (ALL of it)applies.
Religion has had thousnds of years to twisted the Word by coming up with doctrines to teach people and the scriptures

WARN 1 John 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."
So why do preachers tell you you need to join a church, could it be they want your money,worship or their just lonely?

Isn't that what you have just done with the scripture you have used?

 Re: Is God History?

GOD is sovereign; and HE writes destiny
and history. HIS Word is HIS testimony
and HIS witness. The scriptures guide
us, counsel us, teach us, and give us
wisdom.
GOD has a place for us, and that place
is in HIS Body, the Church Christ bought
with HIS life and blood. HIS people are
in HIS Church, and HIS Church ministers
and serves by practicing the gospel~!~

 Re:

Hello Earl,

In asking the question, "Is God history?", you might at the same time ask, "Who is God?" When you come to grips with that question, you will most likely be able to answer the first question.

There are lots of good links/resources that comment on this, but perhaps this one concerning The Westerminister Confession of Faith might give you some insight to both questions. Here is the link:

Of course, words alone fall completely short of fully describing who God is, but it is important to focus on this understanding in order to more fully appreciate the message of the Gospel.

God Bless,
Mike

Have you ever read 1Timothy? Titus? These books discuss the qualifications of a bishop, deacon...now why would these offices exist if there would be no people to lead?

This is fine and dandy however Context is King. John was disputing a terrible sect of Gnostic teachers who believed that one must reach some kind of Spiritual enlightenment to be saved and also to teach. John is telling the Christian believers that there is no such enlightenment that endows men special revelation and that all one needs to teach is the Holy Spirit and abiding in Christ Jesus. One of the groups of men Jesus gave to the church according to Paul was teachers (Ephesians 4:11) they are for the building up of the Saints to maturity. So either Paul and John greatly disagreed with how things ought to run showing that one of them wasn't an inspired author of God or your interpretation is incorrect.

Remember friend that Scripture interprets itself a great portion of the time. If you can only find one scripture to back up an argument that just poor exegesis.

God Bless,
Matthew
