Your comment does not make sense to me, sorry. Are you saying Paul contradicted himself, that Titus should have been circumcised to meet the standard of holiness without which no one will see the Lord?
Unprofitable Servant, I appreciate your carefulness in condemning a brother, but defending heresy is not holy. Tell me, have they not time and time again very strongly implied that those who sing songs, celebrate a day, or use the wrong words in a salutation are not saved? This is works salvation, which is very different from keeping the commandments (and these are not commandments) out of love for God.
3 But even Titus, who was with me, was not forced to be circumcised, though he was a Greek. 4 Yet because of false brothers secretly brought in-who slipped in to spy out our freedom that we have in Christ Jesus, so that they might bring us into slavery- 5 to them we did not yield in submission even for a moment, so that the truth of the gospel might be preserved for you. - Galatians 2:3-5 ESV

It is one thing to have a misunderstanding of the gospel, and it is another to propagate vehemently a false gospel. This ‚Äúgospel‚ÄĚ that Sc and John UK are teaching is not good news at all and is therefore not the gospel handed down by Jesus to the apostles. It is based off of works. You must believe in Jesus, but also not celebrate any days. If you do celebrate a day you are not saved. This is false teaching coming from false teachers. I‚Äôd say it is high time that everyone on here who knows the real gospel stop treating these people as brothers. If you also believe that they are false teachers, then you are in disobedience to scripture to treat them as brothers in Christ. Show me if I am wrong, thank you.
Oh boy.. that was a good catch then on your part. From the little I remember, of what I think was him(or her?), these posts seem to be a little more caustic and worse English. That‚Äôs crazy, I hope he is ok.
Hello, Mr. JUK. I just want to apologize for using the phrase ‚Äúfalse teaching‚ÄĚ, which could connote you‚Äôre a false teacher and not saved. I knew the connotation it has when I said it and I do not have the information to make that judgement. I am sorry sir, that is a serious thing.
You just contradicted yourself, sir. With one breath you say we must only sing the literal words of psalms, and then when pressed you say ‚Äúit takes a lot of training‚ÄĚ to be able to sing words that are not the literal word of God. For the well-being of weaker Christians, I kindly ask you to stop spreading false teaching.
For any Christians out there who are reading the posts of all these psalm only commanders (adding to the word of God), and questioning whether they may be right because there are so many of them and very adamant, just know that, yes, they are very wrong. It is highly illogical. Some may call it wiggity whack.
