The church needs to stop "belittling" the Holy Spirit.
The church needs to stop making Laws that are not in the Bible.
Where did the idea ever come from that man is allowed to make commands out of obscure Scripture ?
Can we please begin to realize just how many un-true Laws have been burdened upon innocent people who just want to worship God.
Was the Holy Spirit not "able" to record only the Laws that Jesus
wanted Him to record ?
Does man need to improve upon the Holy Spirit ?
Here's a perfect example;
Don't we have the right to take a believing wife along with us, as do the other apostles and the Lord's brothers and Cephas ?
Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common ? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness ?
People will actually demand that these scriptures command that Christians cannot get married to a non-Christian. They actually have the audacity to belittle the Holy Spirit and claim that the Holy Spirit was not competent enough to write the words;
" Do not marry anyone who is not a believer."
The Holy Spirit was very able to do it here;
1 Corinthians 7:39 A woman is bound to her husband as long as he lives. But if her husband dies she is free to marry anyone she wishes,
" must belong to the Lord ".
There the Holy Spirit was quite well and able to say that a Christian widow
" cannot marry an un-believer ".
So if the Holy Spirit was able to say that there, then why couldn't He say it regarding the purple scriptures above ?
If the Holy Spirit is able to say in Genesis 28:1 and 28:6
" Do not marry a Canaanite woman. "
Then why couldn't He write;
" Do not marry an un-believer. " ? ? ?
Please, will every Christian in the body of Christ please stop making up their own commands or putting words in God's mouth.
Proverbs 30:5 Every word of God is flawless, He is a shield to those who take refuge in him. 6 Do not add to his words or he will rebuke you and prove you a liar.
Revelation 22:18 I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book.
1 Corinthians 4:6 Now, brothers, I have applied these things to myself and Apollos for your benefit, so that you may learn from us the meaning of the saying, "Do not go beyond what is written."
Response to an email from Kelly;
So what is God's NEW Covenant command on a Christian marrying a non-Christian ?
Hi Kelly, If you have a look at 1Cor. 7:39 you can see God's specific New Covenant command for "widows".
1Corinthians 7:39 A woman is bound to her husband as long as he lives. But if her husband dies, she is free to marry anyone she wishes but he must belong to the Lord.
So if God was able to command in this case that the spouse must be a Christian, surely He could have commanded the same if He meant it to be this way for every Christian marriage. Right ?
But He doesn't. Simple fact.
And because the only new covenant commands for marriage are in 1Corinthians 7, you will not find any command that prohibits a Christian from marrying a non-Christian, other than for widows.
And God specifically does say that because of sexual immorality (for those who are prone to commit fornication), to let everyone have their own spouse.
1Corinthians 7:2 But since there is so much immorality, each man should have his own wife, and each woman her own husband.
O.k. but if marriage represents a Covenant between God and His church would He (Jesus) willingly enter into a covenant with someone that is not a believer ?
Kelly it's "impossible" for God to enter into a Covenant with a non-believer. A person has to believe and obey Acts 2:38 in order to enter into God's Covenant.
Our choice to enter into marriage really has nothing to do with God's Covenant with us. Since the Day of Pentecost, God changed His Law regarding marriage and man has made huge mistakes because of not understanding proper Covenant Division. First off, the whole to death do us part thing is ridiculous simply because it's not Law. For two people to remain together, who do not LOVE each other, is insane, if it's not God's Law. If my wife willingly chooses to give her life over to drugs, she has chosen to end the marriage. So for me to think that I need to somehow remain married to her is nonsense. Second, marriage is really only for Christians. It's God's Law for sex. For non-Christians to embrace marriage is really a joke upon them. It might make them feel good, but the truth is, they are really deceiving themselves. For non-Christians to marry, is the exact same thing as pagans in the time of Moses, offering sacrifices. The pagans just stole the Law of offering sacrifices from God's people and started doing it because they believed it had some value. There's no real value in marriage for non-Christians.
I know the whole idea of a man being won over by a gentle and quiet spirit but would it be smart to enter into a relationship with a man that does not belong to the Lord ?
Kelly the only thing it depends on is the character of the man and the age of the woman, if she's under 25 I would encourage her not to, unless she is extremely prone to fornication.
That's why 2-3 years of dating should be mandatory to any wise decision towards marriage.
If the man proves his integrity in these 2-3 years, then the only difference is that the Christian would have God's Spirit in order to help him to do God's will. But because the non-Christian is not interested in doing God's will, the Spirit is of no value to him.
But that doesn't mean that that man would not want a loving family relationship and that he would not work towards such. The world is filled with non-Christian husbands dedicated to their wives.
What would be unwise, is for the woman to place any sort of "pressure" on the man to become a Christian. She married him to have sex and to have a loving relationship with him. NOT to convert him.
If the woman is not interested in having children, then it would be unwise for her to marry him unless he's willing to first get a vasectomy.
What would be unwise is for her to marry him and then not give him her body when he wants her (not advocating the support of sexual addiction, a man needs to understand that sex is something that should not be taken for granted).
What would be unwise is for her to marry him without first getting him to confess that a woman needs romance to survive within a marriage.
If the above is accomplished, then marrying the non-Christian man is NOT unwise.
Remember that most men do not realize that a woman's brain is wired for "romance" in the exact same way that his brain is wired for sex. Until a man realizes this, he will never be able to satisfy his wife.
Now go take on the day ;0)
If you have finally come to realize that someone bound a Law upon you that you now know is absolutely not in God's word please email us and tell us what it was.
Here's some that have been given to us and that need to be
exposed and annihilated immediately !
1. A group of congregations in the eastern U.S. used to strongly coheres its members to give money beyond what was according to their income. Some in that body even told Christians that if they didn't have any money they should put their first day of the week giving onto their Visas or Mastercards . May God reprimand such an EVIL teaching.
2. I was told once by a preacher that it was a sin to go to a public swimming pool.
3. One of our preachers said that God demanded that if our city of 1 million people had more than one congregation, that would be against His 'implied' Law of only one congregation per city. Oh mercy.
4. I was told for years that it was a sin to be wealthy.
5. My friends and I were told that if a person out in the country picked up a Bible and read Acts 2:38 and then had their brother baptize them, that they would not be saved if the baptism wasn't done by a preacher.
6. A friend of mine was told that she could not ride on the back of her friend's motorcycle because that would be an appearance of evil, and he wasn't even her boyfriend.
7. Many more to come, sad to say.
(Keep exposing the lies of the devil, send us your experiences.)
Preachers and Teachers, what Laws are You commanding
that are not in God's Word ?
These are the only "Do Not" Scriptures in God's NEW Covenant.
The voice spoke to him a second time, “DO NOT call anything impure that God has made clean.”
The voice spoke from heaven a second time, ‘ DO NOT call anything impure that God has made clean.’
Therefore DO NOT let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires.
DO NOT offer the parts of your body to sin, as instruments of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God, as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer the parts of your body to him as instruments of righteousness.
But the righteousness that is by faith says: “ DO NOT say in your heart, ‘Who will ascend into heaven?’ “ (that is, to bring Christ down)
DO NOT boast over those branches. If you do, consider this: You do not support the root, but the root supports you.
Granted. But they were broken off because of unbelief, and you stand by faith. DO NOT be arrogant, but be afraid.
DO NOT conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: DO NOT think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you.
Bless those who persecute you; bless and DO NOT curse.
Live in harmony with one another. DO NOT be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited.
DO NOT repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody.
DO NOT take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord.
DO NOT be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and DO NOT think about how to gratify the desires of the sinful nature.
If your brother is distressed because of what you eat, you are no longer acting in love. DO NOT by your eating destroy your brother for whom Christ died.
DO NOT allow what you consider good to be spoken of as evil.
DO NOT destroy the work of God for the sake of food. All food is clean, but it is wrong for a man to eat anything that causes someone else to stumble.
DO NOT deceive yourselves. If any one of you thinks he is wise by the standards of this age, he should become a “fool” so that he may become wise.
Now, brothers, I have applied these things to myself and Apollos for your benefit, so that you may learn from us the meaning of the saying, “ DO NOT go beyond what is written.” Then you will not take pride in one man over against another.
But now I am writing you that you must not associate with anyone who calls himself a brother but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or a slanderer, a drunkard or a swindler. With such a man DO NOT even eat.
Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? DO NOT be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders.
DO NOT deprive each other except by mutual consent and for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. Then come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.
You were bought at a price; DO NOT become slaves of men.
(ONLY Paul’s OPINION, NOT Binding NEW Covenant Law) Are you married ? Do not seek a divorce. Are you Divorced ? Do not look for a wife. But if you do marry you have NOT sinned . . .”
DO NOT be idolaters, as some of them were; as it is written: “The people sat down to eat and drink and got up to indulge in pagan revelry.”
And DO NOT grumble, as some of them did—and were killed by the destroying angel.
No, but the sacrifices of pagans are offered to demons, not to God, and I do not want you to be participants with demons.
But if anyone says to you, “This has been offered in sacrifice,” then DO NOT eat it, both for the sake of the man who told you and for conscience’ sake.
DO NOT cause anyone to stumble, whether Jews, Greeks or the church of God.
Now about spiritual gifts, brothers, I do not want you to be ignorant.
Therefore, my brothers, be eager to prophesy, and DO NOT forbid speaking in tongues.
DO NOT be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.”
We do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about the hardships we suffered in the province of Asia. We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired even of life.
DO NOT be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common ? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness ?
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and DO NOT let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.
You, my brothers, were called to be free. But DO NOT use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature ; rather, serve one another in love.
DO NOT be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.
”In your anger DO NOT sin”: DO NOT let the sun go down while you are still angry.
And DO NOT give the devil a foothold.
DO NOT let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.
And DO NOT grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.
God’s wrath comes on those who are disobedient. 7 Therefore DO NOT be partners with them.
Therefore DO NOT be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.
DO NOT get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit.
Fathers, DO NOT exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.
And masters, treat your slaves in the same way. DO NOT threaten them, since you know that he who is both their Master and yours is in heaven, and there is no favoritism with him.
DO NOT be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
Therefore DO NOT let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day.
DO NOT let anyone who delights in false humility and the worship of angels disqualify you for the prize. Such a person goes into great detail about what he has seen, and his unspiritual mind puffs him up with idle notions.
DO NOT lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices
Husbands, love your wives and DO NOT be harsh with them.
Fathers, DO NOT embitter your children, or they will become discouraged.
DO NOT put out the Spirit’s fire
DO NOT treat prophecies with contempt.
If anyone does not obey our instruction in this letter, take special note of him. DO NOT associate with him, in order that he may feel ashamed.
Yet DO NOT regard him as an enemy, but warn him as a brother.
I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent.
DO NOT neglect your gift, which was given you through a prophetic message when the body of elders laid their hands on you.
DO NOT rebuke an older man harshly, but exhort him as if he were your father. Treat younger men as brothers,
As for younger widows, DO NOT put them on such a list. For when their sensual desires overcome their dedication to Christ, they want to marry.
DO NOT entertain an accusation against an elder unless it is brought by two or three witnesses.
DO NOT be hasty in the laying on of hands, and do not share in the sins of others. Keep yourself pure.
So do not be ashamed to testify about our Lord, or ashamed of me his prisoner. But join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God,
These, then, are the things you should teach. Encourage and rebuke with all authority. DO NOT let anyone despise you.
We must pay more careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we DO NOT drift away.
DO NOT harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion, during the time of testing in the desert,
As has just been said: “Today, if you hear his voice, DO NOT harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion.”
Therefore God again set a certain day, calling it Today, when a long time later he spoke through David, as was said before: “Today, if you hear his voice, DO NOT harden your hearts.”
We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised.

Let us not abandon meeting together, as is the custom of some, but let us encourage one another and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
Greek / English Interlinear
Mh (No) Egkataleipontev (Abandon) Thn (The) Episunagwghn (Assembling)
Eautwn (of Ourselves) Kaqwv (According to) Eqov (the Custom) Tisa (of Some)
mh (No) egkataleiponteV (Abandon) thn (The) episunagwghn (Assembling)
eautwn (of Ourselves) kaqwV (According to) eqoV (the Custom) tisin (of Some)
The Greek word here is abandon.
Which is not the English word for "miss a service".
Abandon means to completely quit attending church.
It does not mean "Don't ever miss a service".
Do you sin ? by preaching that it's a sin to miss a church service ?
If yes then please stop doing so.
Those who preach that it's a sin to miss a gathering are usually the same ones that are wrongly directing their congregation by trying to press their members into a budget, instead of allowing the donations of the congregation to determine spending.

So DO NOT throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.
And you have forgotten that word of encouragement that addresses you as sons: “My son, DO NOT make light of the Lord’s discipline, and DO NOT lose heart when he rebukes you,
See to it that you DO NOT refuse him who speaks. If they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, how much less will we, if we turn away from him who warns us from heaven ?
DO NOT forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it.
DO NOT be carried away by all kinds of strange teachings. It is good for our hearts to be strengthened by grace, not by ceremonial foods, which are of no value to those who eat them.
And DO NOT forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.
DO NOT merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.
For he who said, “Do not commit adultery,” also said, “Do not murder.” If you do not commit adultery but do commit murder, you have become a lawbreaker.
But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, DO NOT boast about it or deny the truth.
Brothers, DO NOT slander one another. Anyone who speaks against his brother or judges him speaks against the law and judges it. When you judge the law, you are not keeping it, but sitting in judgment on it.
Above all, my brothers, DO NOT swear—not by heaven or by earth or by anything else. Let your “Yes” be yes, and your “No,” no, or you will be condemned.
As obedient children, DO NOT conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance.
Live as free men, but DO NOT use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as servants of God.
Like Sarah, who obeyed Abraham and called him her master. You are her daughters if you do what is right and DO NOT give way to fear.
DO NOT repay evil with evil or insult with insult, but with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.
But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. “ DO NOT fear what they fear ; do not be frightened.”
Dear friends, DO NOT be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering, as though something strange were happening to you.
However, if you suffer as a Christian, DO NOT be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name.
But DO NOT forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.
DO NOT love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
Dear children, DO NOT let anyone lead you astray. He who does what is right is righteous, just as he is righteous.
DO NOT be like Cain, who belonged to the evil one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his own actions were evil and his brother’s were righteous.
DO NOT be surprised, my brothers, if the world hates you.
Dear friends, DO NOT believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
2 John 1:8
Watch out that you DO NOT lose what you have worked for, but that you may be rewarded fully.
2 John 1:10
If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, DO NOT take him into your house or welcome him.
3 John 1:11
Dear friend, DO NOT imitate what is evil but what is good. Anyone who does what is good is from God. Anyone who does what is evil has not seen God.
At this I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “Do not do it! I am a fellow servant with you and with your brothers who hold to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”
Then he told me, “Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book, because the time is near.
Please, if you're promoting a law that is not absolutely evident from God's word, please retract it and stop inflicting any further pain upon innocent people. Thanks so much.
Tell your friends now and save them at least ten years of Bible Study.
