Stopping the Mouth of a Gainsayer (Round Two)

September 7, 2011 by: KJVOnly

Wednesday Evening

Round Two Goes to Paul Only!
Titus 1:9-16

Tonight, we look at how our gainsayer tries to make the Sermon on the Mount apply to us today. I had sent him verses that contradict Paul’s teachings as well to show we can not nor does anyone ever try to apply these verses today.

Our gainsayer first challenges me on my not using the word ‘application’ thus I don’t believe all scripture, etc. Then, he denies it himself, but by the time he was done, he then says he does believe it. This is a great example of lousy reasoning – and confusion – all in one paragraph!

As I study his ‘comments’ I am beginning to see that he has three main issues he is missing.

  1. He has no idea what the difference is between the kingdom of heaven (only mentioned in Matthew & never mentioned by Paul) & the kingdom of God (only what Paul taught!)
  2. He uses the same couple of verses to hang all his doctrine on to show the Hebrews to Jude is NOT Tribulational application
  3. His reasoning actually goes against the simple truth of the KJB, as rightly divided.

We look at the times that the Jews spent ‘reasoning’ with Jesus, etc. only to see that Jesus accuses them of ‘perceive ye not yet, neither understand? have ye your heart yet hardened?

Then we look at the few times Paul spent reasoning with the Jews. When the Jews couldn’t handle what Paul taught of the Risen Saviour, they would then reason together – and NEVER get it!

Then, we spent the rest of the evening comparing our gainsayers attempt at applying the Beatitudes to Christians today with what Paul says. We look at Matthew 5:9,10 and 18 tonight. The ‘reasoning’ really makes no sense while Paul’s application is truly the way of God more perfectly!

The gainsayer’s reasoning is almost silly it is so roundabout and senseless.

Very poor video quality as I had to use a webcam for the cam -and lately, the sound isn’t the best, either – still working on those problems!

PS – During the gainsayers series, there will be no notes other than what is on this page. I doubt that any gainsayers would listen to the audio so they would only scan the notes and disagree. This way, if they really want to hear my thoughts and answers, etc. they will have to listen to the actual preaching / teaching and hear all that needs to be said.
