Yes, there are ads

I have included advertisements on this page because I am extremely poor. If you would help me out by clicking an ad I would be grateful. I have limited the ads to the categories that I believe will interest my readers. I have blocked the smutty categories. I also know that there will be ads that neither you or I agree with.

    I think Mr. Donner brings a very valid point to the discussion. According to Romans 14, verses 13-22 it is clearly (in my opinion) inferred that the "stronger" is to walk in love towards the "weaker" so that the "weaker" is not destroyed by what the "stronger" does or does not do.
    Verse 17 reads "For the Kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit".(ESV)
    Verse 21 then states "It is good not to eat meat or drink wine or do anything that causes your brother to stumble". (ESV)
    I Corinthians 8:21 says "Therefore, if food makes my brother stumble, I will never eat meat, lest I make my brother stumble".
    I think that the spiritually stronger or more mature have a Biblical mandate to live in such a way that the weaker/less mature believers will not be led astray or confused. We probably agree that a bunch of do's and do not's are not the way to address this, but rather a loving and open relationship between/among believers where any issue can be openly discussed. If we can agree to disagree; fine. But, if something, anything, causes a weaker brother to stumble and fall away, I believe firmly that we will be held accountable for causing someone to fall away over our stupid preferences, regardless of those preferences' innate qualities of right or wrong.

    Manfred Nissley: I agree with you. I invite you to look even deeper into the passage. Do you notice how faith is the key and not fear? It is quite powerful when you think about it.

    And what in my post implies fear, other than the fear of being held accountable for causing someone else to sin?

    Didn't say your post did. ;)

    If you are supposedly exposing error, then you need to specify the error, and btw, the stronger is to give way to the weaker, contrary to what you are teaching here.
    What purpose will this serve, since the real conservative Mennonites don't have computers? Seems more like venting than biblical exposition, which is not a very mature thing to do, do you think?

    Manfred Nissley
    Well, next week I will provide an example of some heresy.
    The conservative Menno's that I know do use computers, but they are very afraid of technology.
    As for your point about giving way to the weaker brother, you might want to read the post again.
    :)

    Its als very true among mennonite people that leave the church, they despise and subvert the biblical truths that are scripturly sound. Thus becoming after the way of korah, seeking to take others with them in their open rebellion of the truth

    Manfred Nissley
    That is unfortunately very true. Think about this though, are we so afraid of being one who might err in our doctrine that we restrict ourselves to a group that we know errs?
