Re: Have You Always Been in the Truth?

Re: Discipleship vs Soul Winning

Nice preaching. Thanks for sharing.

I really liked the part that he asked the Lord for some goals and what he got was "go make disciples". Love it.

Re: To Beard or Not to Beard, That is The Question

I heard that Bernard stated that UPCI preachers should stop teaching that wearing a beard is a sin. Quite the opposite.

Re: To Beard or Not to Beard, That is The Question

Beard prohibition as a way of living is not convincing to begin with; however if my Church teaches it, I may roll my eyes or just look for another church, but I won't definitely arm myself and combat...

Re: To Beard or Not to Beard, That is The Question

Brother we are talking about beards, but in general, you would need to distinguish between holiness standards as an application of biblical principles to be practiced 24/7, and the reasonable...

Re: To Beard or Not to Beard, That is The Question

I think the principle of teaching "you should be clean shaved because of separation and you don't want to be taken as a gang member" has two problems:
* I still want to see a scripture where Jesus...

Re: To Beard or Not to Beard, That is The Question

I always thought “standards” are application of biblical principles for clothing and appearance to today’s culture. They are to be kept all the time, 24/7.

Brother, don’t you think asking men to...

Re: To Beard or Not to Beard, That is The Question

I always thought the whole reasoning about shaving because of the Hippies was just an overreaction, like if we today ban the use of rainbows in kids parties because of the gays.

Re: To Beard or Not to Beard, That is The Question

There are principles of holiness wherever you are to keep.
And there is also a thing called being dress appropriately to the occasion.
