Tip of the Day, May 24

24 May

May 24 – John 4:24; “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and truth”.

_____

Sometimes the teachings of the Mormon Church are just outright blasphemous and today’s example is one of these times.  Notice the continual onslaught of heretical teachings in regards to God’s nature.  Ask your Mormon friend what he thinks of the ‘Inspired Version’ of the Bible and the true Holy Bible that has stood the test of time.

_____

“False creeds teach that God is a spirit essence that fills the immensity of space and is everywhere and nowhere in particular present….it is common for apologists to point to the statement in the King James Bible which says, “God is a Spirit”. (John 4:22-24.) The fact is that this passage is mistranslated; instead, the correct statement, quoted in context reads…For unto such hath God promised his Spirit”.  Mormon Doctrine, pg 318.

    “Sometimes the teachings of the Mormon Church are just outright blasphemous…” Yes, indeed! TMT (Typical Mormon Twist).

    Do you believe that all of these “God is” statements from the bible are literally true, or, like me, do you believe that they only talk about different parts of the nature of God?

    (Deuteronomy 4:24.)

    24 For the LORD thy God is a consuming fire…

    Psalms 84:11.)

    11 For the LORD God is a sun . . .

    (Daniel 2:47)

    47 …God is a God of gods…

    (John 4:24.)

    24 God is a Spirit:

    (Hebrews 12:29.)

    29 For our God is a consuming fire.

    My answer is: NEITHER.
    Daniel: here the GOD OF GODS is a statement from King Nebuchanezzar regarding the 3 who lived from fire in the furnace. He had many gods so he made this statement. This was not God’s description of Himself as an attribute.

    I don t have the time to type the rest but you see that God says who he is, what he will do, and yet, offers complete forgiveness to those who believe in His Son’s redemptive work. This is received by us through faith alone and not by keeping the Law.

    The entire Bible has only one point and that is the Biblical Jesus. This is the Blessed Assurance that we Christians have from the Triune God here and now and to eternity.

      When you have time please try to explain away the statement that God is fire.

    God is a refining fire… How do they refine gold? They heat it up and skim off the dross from the top. He refines our hearts and makes us pure. He was the pillar of fire by night and the pillar of cloud by day that lead the Israelites through the wilderness.
    God is not a bird either; Psalm 17:8, Psalm 36:7, Psalm 57:1, Psalm 61:4, Psalm 63:7. There are many human images the writers of both testaments used to describe God. They were descriptions of God that could be understood by man.

    The statement; “God is Spirit” is a Heavenly description that cannot be fully understood by man.
