Galatians 2

The first word of chapter 2 is then which is a conjunction. I become more convinced that whoever divided the books of the bible into chapters intentionally did it wrong so people would understand that what they did was not done by Godly design. These were educated people and would have understood the basics of grammar and how to start a chapter or a paragraph at least as well as I do and I can see it was not done correctly. So to get the context we need to go back to chapter 1 verse 13 for the context. Galatians 1:13 For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews' religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it: One interesting thing is in verse thirteen and fourteen you have the words Jewish Religion they come from the Greek word ioudaïsmos and these two verses are the only place this word is used in the bible. They come from another Greek word ioudaïzō Which means to accept Jewish customs or rites and is used in 2:14 which we will get…

25 Scriptural issues

This was a letter addressed to members of The Way International but everyone can learn from it.  From John A Lynn
Scriptural Issues About Which The Living Truth Fellowship Differs With The Way International (and other groups who hold to the same doctrine) Revised 07/15/10

I, the founder of The Living Truth Fellowship (John Lynn) was involved in The Way International for nearly 20 years, until 1987. I am extremely thankful for their pointing me to the Word of God (“It is written”) as the only standard for faith and practice, and for the inherent keys to the Word’s interpretation, which in large part came from E.W.

Upon leaving The Way International, I simply applied those keys to all that I had been taught. Though I found that much of it was biblically sound, there were some significant errors that had a very toxic effect on believers’ lives.

Before I get started with this teaching there are a few fundamentals you need to understand. The first would be that all scripture is “God Breathed”. You may wonder why I am starting here, it is because you need to understand this fundamental. 2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
Here we have an explanation of how and why, we got God’s word, by God given revelation (inspiration) so we can be perfect. The “given by inspiration of God” is two Greek words, theos which means God and pneustos which roughly means breathed. So all scripture is “God Breathed” and is profitable for doctrine, reproof, and correction. Every scripture fits into one of these 3 categories. In the Church or Pauline Epistles we have 7 Epistles and each book fits into one of these categories. Romans is doctrine, Corinthians …
