  • Hi Mike, I have been reading something you posted on rightly dividing the word. I was made to understand it to be a spiritual dividing as you have brought forth, but have a new friend that says it is dividing of that which belongs to the Jews and that which belongs to the gentiles. He says that... [read more]
  • I don't think Jesus is correcting the Law of Moses when he said 'You have heard that it was said love your neighbors and hate your enemies.' The OT law commanded them to live at peace with their neighbors under Abraham's covenant, the father of our faith. I think Jesus is correcting Essene's teachi... [read more]
  • Mike, Rom 4:16 says: Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all, If the promise is only to those of the Seed who have f...

And Moses commanded them to kill people in an act of judgment, often times those He (God) commanded be killed were those that were worshiping Molech- which required Child Sacrifice.

My question is this. When you read through the laws and concepts of the Old, you always read stuff like: 'You wi... [read more]
  • Hi Mike, I had a question about Matthew chapter 5.  I read your paper the Law of Moses vs. The Law of the Spirit. Thank you for that paper. It was the best I've encountered on that topic. I was hoping you could comment on my below question. I heard a belief that Christ's teachings in Mat 5 were... [read more]
  • Hi Mike, How did people in Genesis know they were sinning against God when the law wasn't added until much later? Sin is the transgression of the law, and when there is no law sin is not imputed, but we even see Job offering sacrifices for sin long before the law ever came at Mount Sinai. Any Though...

  • Hi Mike, I have been having some discussions with my bible study group and I can't agree with their explanation of these verses. 1Ti 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 1Ti 4:2 Spe...
