I read again and I cant find where I elevate man`s understanding above God.
Anyway, instead of putting energy and using Bible quotes on how people shouldn't pray Mary, use it for the right thing: spread the love of God and show how this may make a real difference in our lives. Because, since the last 3-4 pages with yuour multiples Bible quotes, you are using it as a shield, defense mod, also as a weapon. You are the opposite of what a real minister should be. By the way, where are those people who accepted you as a minister ? None of them wrote that here so yes, you are the one who self proclaim it lol You attacked me about a simple affirmation which was, as catholic, we pray Mary.. I would understand in some way if I had try to convert people to this or impose this prayer method as a must be but I never had that pretension.
And for your information, I have not only read the entire Bible many times but I also have some theology degree in University.
You're a man of hypocrisy. This whole time I have been pointing you towards Jesus because you have clearly gone astray. I raised my tone with you when you blatantly disrespected me and other users on this forum by 1) Calling us your "buddies" in a condescending manner. 2) Calling people pathetic. 3) Calling our knowledge, understandings, and opinions inadequate. 4) Saying that born-again Christians are less authoritative. 5) Posting snide comments about irrelevant things like that someone is bad at music. 6) Calling me a parrot, and implying that I am void of the Holy Spirit.
My posts have not been personal attacks but rebukes. I am convicted by the falsehoods you are preaching here and want to be sure that my other Christian brothers are not being misled. This is not some petty conversation about do's and don'ts. It's a matter of idolatry - of elevating someone above Jesus as if he will not suffice. You're the one who has attacked multiple people on here. You're the one who flung Bible quotes around as a weapon, implying through Mt. 7:6 in post #172 that I am unholy and am trampling on truth. I have done nothing
with the verses I have posted but affirm the truths I am sharing, including when you said a born-again Christian doesn't have a place in this conversation. You're the one who has failed to represent Jesus.
And I'm not completely sure if you were serious about having people from my church congregation post here? Yes, let me go gather people from the church I serve to back me up on here...
Either way, for everyone who has witnessed this conversation, know this: All you need is Jesus.1 Timothy 2:5 NIV
For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus.
