The Law of Two Witnesses

The Law of Two WitnessesThe purpose of this Law is to show the truth behind a doctrine in a “proving manner”.

Here is the verse from which this explanation of the “Law of Two Witnesses” is based.

This is the third time I am coming to you. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.

2 Corinthians 13:1

There must be at least two verses to affirm a doctrine (a teaching). Two which affirm the above verse would be Deuteronomy 17:6 or 19:15.

At the mouth of two witnesses, or three witnesses, shall he that is worthy of death be put to death; but at the mouth of one witness he shall not be put to death.

Deuteronomy 17:6

One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth: at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established.

Deuteronomy 19:15

The purpose is to show the two witnesses are necessary to prove something to be true or false. In this case a teaching from the Bible.

What does the Bible say about Tattoos?

Leviticus 19:28Can you guess what this article is going to be about?! Let me give you a hint, it isn’t about… unicorns or tithing or Christmas. Well, maybe there is a connection with Christ or something like that. :)

For starters, the Bible doesn’t say a whole lot about tattoos. There is one verse and then there are verses which affirm this verse and the validity of it’s position.

So we will start with the one verse:

Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD.

Leviticus 19:28

I would say that is pretty straight forward… strangely enough people like to argue the validity of the verse. I have read a lot about this subject. I have seen lots of peoples opinions about it, most of the time I see them try to explain it away. We will cover a few of those things here.

Breaking down the verse:

Bible Study: What does it mean to take God’s name in vain?

Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. Exodus 20:7This is a follow up article of the last two articles and the reason the previous articles were written. Here is the first and second articles. It is recommended you read those two before this one. Because I think it will get you in the right frame of mind to understand this topic.

Starting with a scripture:

Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

Exodus 20:7

To be most clear, the question posed in this article is the following:

According to Exodus 20:7, what does it mean to take the Lord’s name in vain?

I think to first really understand what this statement means, we must understand the following:

What it means to “Take the Lord’s name”. It takes understanding this before you know what it means to take it in vain, which is the main purpose of this article.

The Wise and Prudent vs Babes

wise and prudent vs babesLast week I mentioned there were three articles I would be writing together. The verses used in these articles build upon each other so it just kind of makes sense for them to all be in this order. Last week was on “The Pride of Life” and some of the hindsight for me is: I could have used a few verses which would have made it better, but we will cover them here because they still work. So, to start this article we will begin with Matthew 11:25.

And at that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and the prudent, and has revealed them unto babes.

Matthew 11:25

Bible Study: The Pride of Life

church I started two other articles the same day I started this one. I kept going backwards because they build upon each other. This one should be the first one of the three. The others will be the next two posted! We will start with the main verse of this article, sound like a plan?

For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

1 John 2:16

The pride of life accounts for one third of all that is in the world. Maybe not in exact quantities, however, it is still one of the three things being part of “all that is in the world”. Obviously, this is a big thing to deal with, being one third of all that is in the world and all. I have a recent personal experience to share with this as well, so I will share that first.

What does the Bible say about Marriage?

church As you might have noticed this post is going to be about what the Bible says about marriage. This is a deep subject… I am not trying to say I know “something” more than anyone else. I only know what God decides to reveal to me and you only know what he decides to reveal to you.

So, I am going to try to write this with all walks of life in mind. Those who may be babies in the word and those who consider themselves eating meat. What food category this is? I consider it all of them, because I feel like I only know the surface of the matter, though I may be eating meat. I am simply recognizing the depth of this particular topic.

So lets dive in!
