Naj Christian Glasovanje?

Torek, 31. januar, 2012

COGwriter

Štirje možje republikanske stranke so še vedno nekoliko stoji v svojem prizadevanju, da premakne ameriški predsednik Obama in dobil službo.

Obstajata dve katolike , en mormon , in eno Baptist teče za republikansko nominacijo, da bi bila v nasprotju s precej irreligious demokrat Barack Obama (ki trdi tudi krščansko vero).

Naj bi resnični kristjani volili?

Če je demokracija, ki se sankcionira v Bibliji za kristjane, gotovo bi bilo treba sankcionirati v Novi zavezi. Grški in rimski demokratične prakse so znana takrat. Demokracija ni ameriški izum (niti republikanska oblika vladavine).

V Novi zavezi beremo o Jezusu imenovanju apostolov. Pavel piše, da je Bog najprej imenuje apostole, sekundarno preroke, itd za poučno Kristusovo telo (Efežanom 4: 11,12).

Ko Juda je bilo potrebno zamenjati (po njegovi izdaji Jezusa in njegov samomora), apostoli niso imeli na volitvah, so sledila svetopisemski primer iščejo Božjo voljo:

Ti, Gospod, ki vedo, srca vseh, pokaži, kateri od teh dveh Izbrali ste ... In mečejo svoje obrambo. (Apd 1: 24,26).

Obvestilo apostoli ni odločil, da bi bili usposobljeni, da vidi v srcu posameznika.

Nekateri so napisali, da so različne oblike demokracije zdaj sprejemljiva, saj menijo nekateri spisi v knjigi Apostolskih to pomeni. Zdi se, da v zgodbi o Apd 15. v primarnem Verzi Apd 15 veliko apostoli in starešinami zbrali, da bi razpravljali obrezovanju in Gentile vernike. Množica svetovalcev je bila uporabljena, da bi razpravljali o zadevi. Nekateri menijo, da je s pomočjo zagovornika kaže demokracije. Vendar pa je dejstvo, da je bila uporabljena množica svetovalcev ne spreminja Božjo obliko vlade. V Stari zavezi beremo, da ne samo, da je Bog vedno spodbujala to prakso (prov 11:14), smo tudi prebral, da je Bog sam ukvarja z njim (II Chronova 18, 18-21); Tako dejstvo, da so nekateri vodstvom cerkvenega sledijo tej praksi, kaže le, da so bili od Boga vladne prakse iz Stare zaveze, ki se nadaljuje.

Zanimivo je omeniti nekaj drugega, omenjen v knjigi Apostolskih del,

"In zdaj, povem vam, vodijo stran od teh ljudi in jih pustite pri miru; Kajti če je ta načrt ali to delo je moških, bo prišel na nič; ampak, če je od Boga, ga ne morete, da ne bi strmoglavljenje vas bo tudi ugotovljeno, da je boj proti Bogu «(Apostolska dela 5: 38-39)

T cev, ki so glasovali v posvetnih volitvah očitno verjamejo, da vedo vidike načrta Boga, da ne obstaja človeški način, da bi lahko vedel. Pa vendar, poglej, kaj je Bog rekel Samuelu, eno je jasno, imenovane in Boga imenoval, ko je Samuel je mislil, da je vedel, kdo naj bo naslednji kralj nad Izraelom,

Tako je bilo, ko so prišli, da je pogledal Eliabovi in rekel: "Gotovo GOSPOD maziljenca je pred njim." Toda GOSPOD je rekel Samuelu: »Ne glej na njegov videz ali na vrhuncu svoje postave, ker sem so ga zavrnili. Za GOSPOD ne vidi, kakor človek vidi; za moškega pogleda na videzu, vendar GOSPOD gleda v srce «(1 Sam 16: 6-7).

Zanimivo je tudi, da se zavedaš, da je veliko takih, ki verjamejo, da je Nova zaveza sankcije demokracija prav tako menijo, da je Božji prihodnja vladajoča vlado (v Božjem kraljestvu) ne bo demokracija.

Jezus je rekel apostolom, da bi bili vladarji nad dvanajst Izraelovih rodov v svojem kraljestvu (Lk 22:30). Jezus je izbral učence, niso dobili svoje pozicije iz katere koli oblike demokracije (Janez 15:16; 6:70). Bog, ne človek, izbral Davida za kralja nad Izraelom prvotno (Apd 13:22) in se ga je izbral tudi za kralja nad vsem Izraelom v svetu v prihodnjem (Jer 30: 9).

Mimogrede, je Jezus rekel, da je Bog Oče pridržane kdo bo imel določene položaje oblasti v Božje kraljestvo (Mat 20:23). Nagrade v kraljestvu bo Jezus ", da dobimo (Rev 22:12); ne bodo za ljudi, da sprejmejo sami.

Demokracija ne bo Božji oblika vladavine, v njegovem kraljestvu.

Zakaj?

Ena od mnogih problemov glasovanja je, da nobena človeška misli pot Bog ne.

"Za moje misli niso vaše misli, niti niso vaši poti Moja pota", govori Gospod (Je 55: 8).

Ko je bil Jezus na zemlji je razglasil evangelij o Božjem kraljestvu in povedal ljudem, da se pokesajo (Mark 1: 14-15). Jezus ni hotel sodelovati v celo najbolj osnovna vladne odločitve, medtem ko je bil na zemlji (Lk 12: 13-14).

Čeprav Jezus je učil, da smo bili za plačilo davkov (Mat 22: 17-21), je tudi učil, da Njegovo kraljestvo ni od tega sveta (Jn 18:36). Jezus je učil svoje učence, da gredo v svet in oznanite evangelij vsem (Mat 28: 19,20). Jezus je rekel, da so bili njegovi učenci, da je v svetu, vendar ne od (Jn 17:16).

Apostol Peter je to jasno razumeli. Zapisal je, da je del Božjega ljudstva je en del svetega naroda (I Pet 2: 9). Apostol Pavel je zapisal, da je bilo to prisotno svetovno zlo (Gal 1: 4). Sveto pismo svari pred posledicami, ki je del sistemov na svetu in svojim vladam in nam pove, da pridejo ven iz njega in biti ločeni (Rev 18: 2-5).

Poglejte, kaj Biblija uči se bo zgodilo v zadnjih dneh in kaj kristjani storiti glede tega,

Ampak veste, to, da se bo v zadnjih dneh nevarno časi pridejo: Za bodo ljudje lahko ljubitelji sami, ljubitelji denarja, preuzetnici, ponosna, bogokletneže, neposlušni staršem, nehvaležen, brezbožno, neljubeča, neprizanesljiva, obrekovalci, brez samokontrole , brutalne, despisers dobrega, izdajalci, svojeglav, ponosen, ljubitelji užitek in ne ljubitelji Boga, ki imajo obliko pobožnosti, ampak zanikanje svojo moč. In od takih ljudi obrniti stran! (2 Tim 3: 1-5).

Upoštevajte, da Božja beseda ne spodbuja glasovanja kot rešitev.

Paul je dejal, da so kristjani, da so ambasadorji za Kristusa (II Kor 05:20). Ambasadorji pogosto živijo v tujih narodov, od katerih so nekateri očitno sovražni do svojih prepričanj. Ambasadorji, čeprav živijo v drugih družbah, ne sami vključujejo v politiki društev, ki živijo v. Tam je čas za Božje ljudstvo prevzeti vlade tega sveta, vendar pa še ni (Janez 18:36 Dan 7: 17-18). To bo po drugi prihod Jezusa (I Tes 4:16, Rev 11:15).

Kristjanom, Peter je zapisal,

Ampak ti si izvoljeno ljudstvo, kraljevsko duhovništvo, svet narod, ljudstvo, ki pripadajo Bogu, da lahko razglasi hvalnice njega, ki vas je poklical iz teme v svojo čudovito svetlobo. Ko niste bili ljudstvo, zdaj pa ste Božje ljudstvo; ko ni prejela usmiljenja, zdaj pa ste prejeli milost. Dragi prijatelji, pozivam vas, kot tujce in tujci v svetu, naj se vzdržijo grešnih želja, ki vojna proti tvoji duši. Živeti tako dobro življenje med pogani, ki, čeprav so ti obtožujejo delaš narobe, lahko vidijo vaša dobra dela in slavili Boga na dan naju obišče. Predloži sebe zavoljo Gospodovega do vsakega organa, ustanovljenega med moškimi: ali kralju, kot vrhovni organ, ali guvernerji, ki so poslani z njim, da bi kaznovali tiste, ki so storili narobe in pohvaliti tiste, ki so storili prav. Za njim je Božja volja, da s tem dobro morate utišati nevedno govorjenje o nespametnih moških (1 Peter 2: 9-15).

Tujci, seveda, ne glasuje.

Now the Bible does mention one particular vote by the Apostle Paul (while he was still Saul and thus unconverted). Notice what he later said about it:

Indeed, I myself thought I must do many things contrary to the name of Jesus of Nazareth. This I also did in Jerusalem, and many of the saints I shut up in prison, having received authority from the chief priests; and when they were put to death, I cast my vote against them (Acts 26:9-10).

And while the above is not of itself a blanket condemnation of all voting, it is the only time the word “vote” or “voting” is in the Bible. And it does show that even religiously zealous/conservative individuals do not always vote correctly and can do many things contrary to the name of Jesus of Nazareth .

I do not believe that the Bible sanctions Christians voting in carnal elections. Nor do I believe that the upcoming presidential election in the USA or the elections in the other Anglo-descended nations will result in the type of repentance that those nations need.

Nekateri predmeti morda povezano pomena, lahko vključujejo:

Globalni "velesila politika" vrne Mideast

Oba sta nakazala jasen namen, da se prepreči morebitne " sprememba režima "posredovanje v Siriji ; ampak uvajanje Rusije od svojega paradnega letalonosilko in spremstvo do pristanišča Sirije iz Tarza ta mesec narisal starker kot ponavadi črto v pesek ... "Vsakič, West zategne povodec, Peking tiho ki izkoristi stagnacije," pravi Thomas Barnett, nekdanji strateg za ameriške mornarice ...

Sirska opozicija: Rusija, Iran tvegajo odnose s prihodnjo Siriji

Ynetnews - 31. januar 2012

Sirski član Ugovor Fahed Al-Masri povedal libanonski radijsko postajo, da so prizadevanja Rusija in Iran sta odločanja, da bi prihranili režim predsednika Asada se bo odrazilo v prihodnjih odnosih obeh držav s Sirijo. "Rusija bo izgubila svojo zadnjo oporo na Bližnjem vzhodu in v Siriji, "je dejal in dodal, da če se Moskva še naprej nasprotuje stališče mednarodne skupnosti o Siriji ...

Torej tri geografsko največja pooblastila na vzhodu jemljete stojnice v popolnem nasprotju z Zahodom. Sveto pismo na koncu navaja, da bo očitno ruščina vodstvom Eurasian konfederacija prevzame preostalo moči na Zahodu (ki v tem času se bo pod vodstvom Evropske King of the North). In Kitajska in Indija se zdi, da je prerokoval, da podpre ruščina vodstvom konfederacije.

Ampak, da se bo kasneje, tik pred vrnitvijo Jezusa Kristusa (Razodetje 09:16; 16: 12-16).

V tem času East igra nevarno igro, ki je verjetno, da izgubiti, vsaj v diplomatskem smislu.

Ne glede na to, kakšni so njihovi gospodarski interesi so, niti Rusija niti Indija želite Islamska moč, da dvignejo. In kljubuje zahodne sankcije, morda ti narodi menijo, da je delitev islamski svet v Iranu in Siriji, ostalih arabskih narodov, turških narodov, Pakistan, Afganistan, in Indonezije, da se bo ta delitev preprečiti islamskem svetu moč od dviga .

Če menijo, da so v zmoti.

Islamska moč ( kralj na jugu od svetopisemske prerokbe), ki ga arabske oblasti očitno vodstvom, pa se bo dvignil. S podpiranjem Sirijo, kot je bilo, bo Rusija odtujiti arabski svet (je Arabska liga nagibale k varnostno Zahod v zvezi s Sirijo in ni posebej ljubitelj Irana). Sirija ne bo nadaljevalo, kot je Iran lahko nevtraliziramo, vsaj do določene mere.

Katere tri vzhodne pooblastila, so v bistvu počnete, je povedal, arabski svet, da je bolje sodelovati z Evropejci kot z Rusijo, Kitajsko ali Indijo. In sodelovanje med arabskimi in evropskimi svetov je nekaj, bo začasno storiti (Daniel 11:27; Psalm 83: 3-8).

China, itself, is interested in resources like oil and loves to take advantage of buying opportunities that Western sanctions, for example, can provide. Yet China needs the markets of the West more than it actually needs Iranian oil. The same is basically true for India.

Iran and Syria are really not so important to Russia, China, and India that they will back them no matter what (though there will be a future alliance with the Persians/Iranians, but this is for a time after the millennial reign of Christ and is discussed in Ezekiel 38:1-9).

So despite posturing from these three Eastern powers, the reality is that the West will gain the most influence in the Middle East from what is now happening.

Iran will not be the leader of the King of the South and whatever survives in Syria (cf. Isaiah 17:1) will apparently support the coming Arab leader of Daniel 11:40. If those in Russia, China, and India understood biblical prophecy better they would realize that their current stand perhaps should be modified in regards to Iran and Syria.

Europe Agrees to Closer Fiscal Union

Monday, January 30th, 2012

The Europeans somewhat have another agreement for closer fiscal union:

30 January 20122

BY STEPHEN FIDLER,LAURENCE NORMAN AND MATINA STEVIS

BRUSSELS—Leaders of 25 European Union governments agreed Monday night on what some billed as a historic pact to move to closer fiscal union and signed off on the details of a permanent bailout fund for the euro zone—yet Greece's looming debt restructuring threw a shadow over the summit. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970204740904577192253105056954.html

By Julien Toyer and Paul Taylor

BRUSSELS | Mon Jan 30, 2012

(Reuters) – Chancellor Angela Merkel cemented her political ascendancy in Europe on Monday when 25 out of 27 EU states agreed to a German-inspired pact for stricter budget discipline, even as they struggled to rekindle growth from the ashes of austerity.

Only Britain and the Czech Republic refused to sign a fiscal compact in March that will impose quasi-automatic sanctions on countries that breach European Union budget deficit limits and will enshrine balanced budget rules in national law. http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/01/30/us-eu-summit-idUSTRE80S0SR20120130

This is one more step to the fulfillment of biblical prophecies related to the rising up of the final European Beast power.

Those of us in the Living Church of God have long taught that the United Kingdom would not be a real part of the final power that will emerge in Europe. Those in the Czech Republic will almost certainly be part of that final power.

The Bible, in Revelation 17, is clear that the Europeans will still have to reorganize in the future:

12 “The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast. 13 These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast. (Revelation 17:12-13)

Steps towards this happening are continuing as we in the Living Church of God have long taught–and there will be bumps in the road and problems (major civil unrest, or worse, may occur).

Of course, the Bible is clear that the final European Beast power will not actually be highly unified as it will basically be a combination of strong and weak, or as the Bible more literally states, iron and clay:

41 Whereas you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter's clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; yet the strength of the iron shall be in it, just as you saw the iron mixed with ceramic clay. 42 And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly fragile. 43 As you saw iron mixed with ceramic clay, they will mingle with the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, just as iron does not mix with clay. (Daniel 2:41-43)

According to Bible prophecy, a European power, despite its fragility, is destined to temporarily be the most dominant force in the world, ultimately conquer the Anglo-descended nations (it is the USA and its Anglo-allies like the UK that have the strongest fortresses of Daniel 11:39), and later come to its end (Daniel 11:45).

But before it is destroyed (Daniel 11:21-44), the final Beast power must come together and get to the place where it has major economic influence. Tonight's announcement is another sign that Europe intends to move in that direction (though it will likely have more problems before it is the final Beast power).

Nekateri predmeti morda povezano pomena, lahko vključujejo:

Europa, Zver in Razodetje Kje je Evropa dobila ime? Kaj bi Evropa morala storiti z Razodetja? Kaj pa "zver"? Using the Tower of Babel and “Beast” images suggests it is not concerned about its role as being part of the future Babylon of Bible prophecy.

Filipini Glede Closer vojaške vezi ZDA Spet

Ponedeljek, 30 januar, 2012


Mount Apo na otoku Mindanao, Filipini

COGwriter

Filipini razmišlja že v tesnejše vojaško dogovoru z ZDA:

Filipini Tehta povečano ameriško vojaško navzočnost
30. januar 2012
Združene države Amerike in Filipini so razpravljali o povečanju vojaških vezi deloma odgovor na povečanje kitajskega asertivnosti v azijsko-pacifiški regiji. Ker so največje grožnje varnosti na Filipinih že dolgo notranji, Manila ima nekaj najšibkejših zunanjih obrambnih zmogljivosti v jugovzhodni Aziji.
Vendar pa bo Manila uravnoteženje prizadevanj za povečanje teh zmogljivosti zoper potencialnega protiudarec tako na Kitajskem, top trgovinskega partnerja z večjim gospodarskim vplivom, ter od svojih ljudi, za katere povečanje vojaško prisotnost ZDA ostaja sporno vprašanje.

Lansko poletje, predsednik Filipinov, je pokazala, da se ni treba bati Kitajsko (glej Predsednik filipinski je grozi Kitajska ).

Medtem ko se ukvarjajo z ZDA začasno da mesenih smisel, na dolgi rok, sem prepričan, da bo Filipini najverjetneje uskladiti s Kitajsko, vendar bomo videli.

Dnevna Božja Cerkev ima približno 33 kongregacije na Filipinih .

Nekateri predmeti morda povezano pomena, lahko vključujejo:

Islands and Bible Prophecy What's ahead for islands? What's ahead for the Philippines? What does the Bible prophesy about islands?
Asia in Prophecy What is Ahead for Asia? Who are the “Kings of the East”? Kaj se bo zgodilo, da skoraj vse kitajske, Rusov, Indijcev in drugih Azije? Kitajska v prerokbe, kje? Kdo ima 200.000.000 človek vojske v zvezi z Armageddon?
Anglo - Amerika v Prophecy in the Lost Tribes Izraelci so Američani, Kanadčani, angleščina, Škotska, Welsh, Avstralci, Anglo (-nizozemski ne) Južno Afričani in Novozelandci potomci Jožefa? Kje so izgubili deset-plemena Izraela? Kdo so izgubljene plemena Izraela? Kaj se bo zgodilo Jeruzalemu in Judi v Izraelu? Bog bo kaznoval ZDA, Kanada, Velika Britanija in druge anglo narode? Zakaj bi Bog jim bo omogočala najprej kaznovan?

Violent Sports, Violent Endings

Monday, January 30th, 2012

COGwriter

Last night, there was a segment on CBS' 60 Minutes as well as an entire CNN program by Dr. Sanjay Gupta concerning damage done to participants in the most watched violent sport in the USA–American football.

Both programs covered the deaths of various players happening because of concussions and other hits which happen from playing the game. How the brain is damaged from such activity was also covered. The CNN piece covered the claim of one researcher who said that the average high school football player suffered 650 sub-concussion level hits each season. The fruits of that were not good. Violent sports result in violent endings.

In the time of ancient Rome, violent sports were also popular.

Were they viewed by many of those that professed Christ?

It does not appear so.

While we do not seem to have many direct references from those in the Church of God, we do have some written records of those who were at least somewhat familiar with the teachings of Jesus and the practices of the earliest Christians.

Here is something from Theophilus of Antioch (who probably was part of the Church of God) perhaps written about 180 AD:

Premislite torej, ali lahko tisti, ki poučujejo take stvari morebiti živijo brezbrižno, in zmešamo v nezakoniti spolni odnos, ali je večina Bezbožan vse, jesti človeško meso, še posebej, ko smo prepovedano toliko kot priča oddaj gladiatorji, da ne postanemo deležniki in abettors umorov. Ampak ne, lahko vidimo druge spektakle, da ne bi naše oči in ušesa se ​​oskrunila, ki sodelujejo pri izjav tam peli. (Theophilus Antiohije. Za Autolycus, knjige III, poglavja XV. Prevedla Marcus Dods, AM izvleček iz Ante-Nicene očetov, Zvezek 2. Uredil Alexander Roberts & James Donaldson. Ameriška izdaja, 1885. Spletna izdaja)

Torej, pravi kristjani niso verjeli, da so bili, da gledajo nasilne športe tako popularne v drugem stoletju.

Tatian, izpoveduje Christian apologet, je napisal okoli 170 AD:

In za te priče zasesti svojih sedežev, in boksarice sestane v enotnem boju, brez razloga karkoli, niti ne koli pride dol v areni bi pomagal. Ali takih razstav ti redound kredita? On, ki je glavni med vami zbira legijo morilcev krvi obarvajo, sodelovanje za ohranitev; in ti rokovnjačem pošljejo tja z njim, in si sestavite na spektakel, da se sodniki, deloma iz hudobije v ocenjevalec, in delno, da od ljudi, ki sodelujejo v boju. In tisti, ki pogreša morilsko razstavo žalostjo, ker ni bil obsojen, da je gledalec zlobne in neverni in odvratna dejanja (Tatian. Prevedla JE Ryland. Tatian je naslov za Grke, poglavja XXIII. Izvleček iz Ante-Nicene očetov, Volume 2. Uredil Alexander Roberts & James Donaldson. Ameriška izdaja, 1885. Spletna izdaja Avtorske pravice © 2004 K. Knight).

Athenagoras, izpoveduje Christian apologet, je napisal okoli 170 AD:

Kaj je človek zdrav duh, zato bo potrjujeta, medtem kot je naš znak, da smo morilci? ...

Kdo ne računati med stvarmi največjega interesa izpodbija z gladiatorji in divjih zveri, zlasti tistih, ki so podane z vami? Ampak mi, štele, da vidite človeka usmrtili je zelo podobno, kot ga ubili, so zanikale take spektakle (Athenagoras. Prošnja za kristjane, poglavje XXXV. Prevede BP Pratten. Izvleček iz Ante-Nicene očetov, Volume 2 . Uredil Alexander Roberts & James Donaldson. Ameriška izdaja, 1885. Spletna izdaja Copyright © 2004 K. Knight).

Še danes mnogi kristjani zavedajo, da gledajo brutalne dogodke nameri povzroča telesne poškodbe, kot so realno boks, je neprimerno.

Obvestilo, da je to tudi stališče tretjega stoletja katoliški teolog in škof Hipolit, ki dodaja tudi različne poklice, za tiste, ki zavračajo eno od tega, da privrženec Kristusa:

16: 6 Voznik bojnih avto, prav tako, ali tisti, ki sodeluje pri igrah, ali pa tisti, ki gre za igre, se mu preneha ali se mu zavrne 7 Če je nekdo gladiator, ali tisti, ki uči tiste med gladiatorji kako. boriti, ali lovec, ki je v divji zveri kaže v areni, ali javni uslužbenec, ki se ukvarja z gladiatorskih predstav, bodisi mu preneha, ali pa se zavrne. 8 Če je nekdo duhovnik malikov, ali spremljevalec malikov, mu preneha ali pa se zavrne. 9 vojak v organu, ne sme izvršiti moških. Če se mu naloži, je ne sme opravljati. Prav tako ne sme vzeti vojaško prisego. Če noče, mu 10 zavrne. Če je nekdo vojaški guverner, ali vladar mesta, ki nosi vijolično, on preneha ali pa se zavrne. 11 catechumen ali verniki, ki želi postati vojak je treba zavrniti, kajti preziral Bog. (Hipolit. Apostolsko izročilo Hipolit v Rimu. Od dela Bernard botte (La Tradition Apostolique. Vira Chretiennes, 11 bis. Pariz, Editions du Cerf, 1984) in Gregory Dix (Razprava o apostolskega izročila St. Hipolit v Rimu, škof in mučenik Londonu. Alban Press, 1992), kot je prevedla Kevin P. Edgecomb http://www.bombaxo.com/hippolytus.html ogledov 08/06/09)

Torej, tisti, ki izpovedujejo Kristusa v drugem in tretjem stoletju na splošno ni čutiti, da je gledanje ali sodelujejo v nasilnih športih primerno.

V novejšem času, pozno Herbert W. Armstrong je napisal:

Sovražnost proti drugi je greh ... boks na veleposlanika College je definitivno prepovedana. Bog ni ustvariti človeške možgane in glavo, da se pummeled in potrkal nesmiselno jih antagonista.

Kjerkoli igra, v športu vključuje antagonisti-v sovražnem odnosu škodovati drugim in / ali "zaslužiti" od drugega, da bi dobili najboljše iz drugega kot škodljiva, Satanic in zlo odnos vstopi v in šport je zlo, ni dobro ...

Nogomet (ameriški nogomet) je nasilen telo stik šport. To je pogosto igral z odnosom sovražnosti in je nevarno in ga je preobremenjeno s telesno poškodbo. (Plain Truth, julij-avgust 1984)

"Ljubezen ne škodi k sosedu« (Rimljanom 13: 9), a kaj nasilni športi, kot so ameriški nogomet in boks storiti? So tisti, ki sodelujejo sosede za kristjane? Treba ljudi spodbujati, da sodelujejo v nasilnih dejavnosti, ki so dokazano škoduje?

To je nekaj, kar bi morali kristjani, in drugi, da misliti.

Nekateri predmeti morda povezano pomena, lahko vključujejo:

Je Ameriški nogomet Evil? Je najbolj priljubljen gledalec šport v ZDA nekaj, kar bi morali kristjani gledajo? Kaj Sveto pismo in zgodnji spisi kažejo? To je prvič, da sem napovedal ta članek na tej novi strani in vsebuje ne samo svoje poglede, vendar je veliko ponudbe, da kristjani, kot tudi ljudje, ki trdijo, da je treba misliti. Ali res želite vedeti odgovor na vprašanje v naslovu sprašuje? Če ne, zakaj ne?
Vojaška služba in Cerkve Božje:? Ali Real kristjani Sodelujte v Carnal Warfare Tu so trenutne in zgodovinske perspektive o zadevi, ki kažejo prepričanja prave cerkve na vojaškem sodelovanju. Je vojna pravilno za kristjane?

Anne Catherine Emmerich trdil, da Glejte vice

COGwriter

Ali Bog ima načrt za tiste, ki niso imenovani, izbere, in zvesti (Razodetje 17:14), v tej starosti, ki niso incorrigibly zlobne in niso storila "neodpustljiv greh"?

Da.

Obvestilo prehod, da mnogi ne razumejo danes:

20 Nič več se dojenček od tam živijo, ampak nekaj dni, ne starca, ki ni izpolnil svoje dni; Za otroka umrl star sto let, pa da je stara sto let grešnik se preklet. (Izaija 65:20)

In je zgodnje profesorji Kristusa spoznali to moral storiti z Božjim načrtom odrešenja?

Da.

Medtem ko imam članke s številnimi spisi o tej temi (glej, na primer, Universal Ponudba Salvation: Obstaja na stotine verzov v Bibliji Podpora doktrine True Apocatastasis ), začnimo ven z drugo razlago stoletja Izaija ga Ireneja do kažejo, kar se je zdelo, da je skupno znanje v dnevih, ne preveč dolgo po smrti zadnjega od prvotnih apostolov:

Zdaj, da obljube niso bile napovedane za prerokov in samo očetje, ampak Cerkva združili, da bi bili ti narodi, ki jim prav tako izrazi Spirit "otoki" (oboje, ker so ustanovljene sredi pretresov, trpijo Nevihta kletvami, obstajati kot pristanišče varnosti tistih, ki v nevarnosti, in so zatočišče tistim, ki ljubijo višine [nebes], in si prizadevati, da bi se izognili Bythus, da je globina napake), Jeremiah tako izjavlja: " Čujte besedo GOSPODOVO, vi narode, in jo razglaša za otoke daleč; rekli ste, da bo GOSPOD razkropil Izraela, bo On ga zbere, in ga vodijo, kot eno hranjenje svojo čredo ovac ...

In še enkrat, pa je rekel isto stvar: "Glej, naredim Jeruzalem radostno, in moje ljudi [veselje]; za glas joka se v njej ne bo več slišati, niti glas jokati. Prav tako pa ne sme biti obstajajo nezreli [en], niti starec, ki ne izpolnjuje svojega časa: kajti mladinski biti sto let; in grešnik umrl star sto let, vendar se bo preklet. In se gradijo hiše in v njih prebivali sami; in zasajali vinograde in jedli sad njih samih, in piti vino. In ne sme graditi, in drugi naseljujejo; niti se pripravljajo vinograd, in drugi jedo. Kajti, kot so dnevi drevesa življenja biti dnevi ljudi v tebi; za dela svojih rok, se vztrajajo "(Irenej. Adversus haereses, knjiga V, poglavje 34, stihi 2-3,4. Izvleček iz Ante-Nicene očetov, Zvezek 1. Uredil Alexander Roberts & James Donaldson. Ameriška izdaja, 1885 . Online Edition Copyright © 2004 K. Knight).

Drugi, kot Origena Aleksandrija, je tudi zapisal, da je imel Bog načrt ponuditi odrešenje za vse.

Mnogi katoliški in protestantski učenjaki presodilo, da je bil Origen eden največjih zgodnjih piscev teoloških (živel od približno 185-232 AD). Papež Benedikt XVI je javno pohvalil Origen.

Opozoriti protestantski zgodovinar KS Latourette zapisal, da "je bila, seveda, eden od največjih krščanskih glavah." Origen In medtem ko se ne morem strinjati s tem, da je v interesu, upoštevajte, da Latourette opaziti:

Origen je učil, da bodo na koncu vsi duhovi, ki so odpadli od Boga, se ponovno polni harmoniji z njim. To lahko prišlo le z njihovim sodelovanjem, saj imajo svobodo, da sprejme ali zavrne izplačilo kovano v Kristusu. Pred popolno obnovo bodo trpeli kazen, vendar kazen naj bi bilo poučno, da jih očisti od pomanjkljivosti, ki jih njihov greh prinaša. Po koncu te starosti in njenega sveta, bo druga starostna prišel, tako Origen verjel, v katerem so bili ponovno rojen bo še naprej rasla in nepopravljiv bodo dobili dodatna priložnost za spokorjenje (Latourette KS zgodovino krščanstva, Volume 1, Začetki do 1500. Harper Collins, San Francisco, 1975, p.151).

Origen je bil blizu, s tem, da ne bodo vsi pokesali, za tam bo tudi tistim, postavljeno na "večno gnusobo" (Daniel 12: 2, KJV), kar pomeni, da tisti, ki ne bi pravilno pokesali ne bodo prejeli zveličanje-vendar smo v Living Božja Cerkev meni, da ne bo manjšina. Ampak Origen je pravilno, da se bo to le prišlo s sodelovanjem tistih, ki so trenutno shranjen.

Tukaj je nekaj citatov neposredno od Origena:

... Je dober oče ni popolnoma zapuščen, tiste, ki so odpadli od njega (Origen. Komentar Janezovega evangelija (Knjiga I). Izvleček iz Ante-Nicene očetov, Volume 9. Uredil Allan Menzies, DD Ameriška izdaja, 1896 in 1897. Spletna izdaja Copyright © 2004 K. Knight).

Treba je opozoriti, pa so, da so nekateri ljudje, ki so padli proč od tega enega začetka, od katerih smo jih govori, potonila do take globine nevrednosti in hudobije, da se šteje, popolnoma nevredni te usposabljanju in izobraževanju, s katerim Človeška rasa, medtem ko so v mesu, so usposobljeni in naročil s pomočjo nebeških pooblastil; in še naprej, nasprotno, v stanju sovraštva in nasprotovanja tistih, ki prejemajo ta navodila in poučevanje. In zato je, da je celotna tega življenju smrtnika polno bojev in poskusov, ki jih je opozicija in sovraštvom tistih, ki so padli iz boljšem stanju, ne da bi sploh gledam nazaj povzročili, in ki se imenuje hudič in njegovi angeli, in druge naloge zla, ki apostol uvrstijo med nasprotujočima pooblastil. Toda, ali je katera od teh naročil, ki delujejo pod vlado hudiča, in ubogati njegove zlobne ukaze, bo v prihodnjem svetu, se pretvori v pravičnosti zaradi njihovega posedovanja fakultete svobode volje, ali obstojne in trdovratnih hudobija se lahko spremenijo z močjo navade v naravi, je rezultat, ki ga sami, bralec, lahko odobravam, če ne v teh sedanjih svetov, ki so videli in časovne, niti v tistih, ki so nevidna in so večna, ta del je v celoti razlikujejo od Končno enotnost in fitness stvari (Origen. De Principiis, Knjiga I, poglavje 6, verz 3).

... In s tem, skozi številne in neštetih naročilu progresivnih bitij, ki se usklajenih Bogu iz stanja sovraštva, je končno dosegel zadnji sovražnik, ki se imenuje smrt, tako da se mu lahko tudi uniči, in ne sme biti več sovražnik. Ko se je torej vse racionalne duše so se že ponovno v stanju te vrste, potem bo narava tega organa naša opraviti spremembe v slavi duhovnega telesa. Kajti, kot smo jo videli, da ne bo veljalo v primeru racionalnih naravi, da so nekateri od njih živel v stanju propadanja zaradi svojih grehov, medtem ko so drugi poklicani, da stanje sreče na račun svojih zaslug; ampak kot smo videli te iste duše, ki so bile prej grešno, ki prejemajo pomoč, po njihovi pretvorbi in spravo z Bogom, v stanju sreče (Origen. De Principiis, Book III, poglavje 6, verz 6).

Medtem ko smo v LCG ne bi beseda je povsem na ta način, ti citati ne kažejo, da je, da je ideja Boga načrt, ki bo dala nepopravljiv priložnost, ko je to prisotno starost ni nov koncept.

Pravzaprav, nauk o vicah razvila med latinskih katoličanov, ko so začeli obsojati nekaterih Origen idej v šestem stoletju. Ko se je to zgodilo, nauke, povezanih s ponudbo odrešenja za vse (znan kot apocatastasis) so bile tudi nekoliko obsodil. Vendar pa to pusti vrzel v rimski teologije in ideja o vicah nato razvil.

Grški katoličani (zdaj znana kot Eastern Orthodox), vendar pa nikoli ni sprejel latinski idejo o vicah in še danes imajo mnogi, ki verjamejo, da je bog neko vrsto načrta, da ponudijo zveličanje tistim, ki niso namerno zavračajo odrešitev.

Catholic Encyclopedia sama priznava, da je zgodnji kristjani ni učil svoj ​​trenutni koncept njene vice doktrine:

Nekateri poudarjajo, je bil preveč položena na ugovor, da so imeli stari kristjani nimajo jasne predstave o vicah, in da so mislili, da je odstopila duše ostali v negotovosti odrešenja do zadnjega dneva ... Obstaja več odlomki iz Nove zaveze, ki kažejo na Postopek čiščenja po smrti. Tako je Jezus Kristus izjavi (Matej 12:32): "In kdor govori besedo zoper Sina človekovega, se mu bo odpuščeno, kdor pa se govori zoper Svetega Duha, da se ne bo mu odpuščeno ne v ta svet, niti v svetu, da pridejo "... (Hanna, Purgatory. Catholic Encyclopedia).

Ne, v drugem stoletju, je menil, da bi Božji načrt omogoči vsem, ki bodo ponujeni zveličanje, bodisi v tej starosti ali starosti, da pridejo, če jih ni storila "neodpustljiv greh« (Mt 0:32; Mark 10:30 ; Lk 18:30; Apd 3: 17-21; Efežanom 1:21; Hebrejcem 6: 4-6; prim Mt 10:15; 11: 22-24; Mark 06:11; Lk 10: 12-14) .). In Nova zaveza, je zelo jasno, da:

"Vse meso videli Božje zveličanje« (Lk 3: 6).

V trinajstem stoletju je znameniti katoliški teolog Tomaž Akvinski je zapisal naslednje:

Nič je jasno navedeno v pismu o razmerah v vicah, niti ni mogoče ponuditi prepričljive argumente o tem vprašanju ...

Nekateri pravijo, kljub temu, da je kraj vic je v skladu s common law, kjer človek grehi. To se ne zdi verjetno, saj se človek lahko kaznovani hkrati grehov, dodeljenih v različnih krajih. In drugi pravijo, da v skladu s skupnim pravom so kaznovani nad nami, ker so med nami in Bogom, glede na njihovo stanje. Ampak to je brez pomena, kajti niso kaznovani za to, da nad nami, ampak za to, kar je najnižje v njih, sicer sin (Akvinski T. Summa Theologica svetega Tomaža Akvinskega, Dodatek II, členu 1. Drugi in Revidirana izdaja, 1920. Nihil Obstat. F. Innocentius Apap, OP, STM, Censor. Theol. Imprimatur. EDU-ji. Canonicus Surmont, Vicarius eneralis. Westmonasterii. APPROBATIO ORDINIS Nihil Obstat. F. Raphael Moss, OP, STL in F. Leo Moore , OP, STL Imprimatur. F. Beda Jarrett, OP, STL, AM, Prior provincialis Angliæ).

Iz navedenega je jasno, da tudi v srednjem veku, je bila ideja o vicah nejasen, celo med voditelji Cerkve v Rimu.

Purgatory je bila v bistvu sprejeta potem, ko so nekateri nauki, povezani z Origenom obsodil v 6. stoletju:

Od trenutka, kljub temu, da je prevladala anti-Origenism, nauk apokatastasis je definitivno opustili. St. Augustine močneje protesti kot kateri koli drug pisatelj pred napako, da je v nasprotju z doktrino nujnosti milosti ... (Batiffel, Apocatastassis. Catholic Encyclopedia).

Zgodovina kaže, da je bila po apocatastasis obsodil sredi 6. stoletja, nekaj, kar spominja na sodobne koncepte vicah so se izgovarjali rimski škof papeža Gregorja I. okoli 600 AD

Morda bi moral omeniti, da čeprav Anne Emmerich je trdil, da vidite, vice, je prav tako trdil, da je videl "limbo" in sedanji papež je navedeno, da "limbo" ne obstaja. Zato je trditev, da vidim eno mesto, ki ne obstaja, morajo to povedati vse, enak tistemu, ki trdi, da vidim, kaj drugega pa ne pomeni, da ne obstaja niti. Ni mesto, ki ustreza sodobno Roman opis vicah.

Božja Cerkev sprva učil apocatastasis, ne vice. In še vedno to počne danes. Bog je Bog ljubezni in ne imeti milostno načrt odrešenja-in to vključuje pridobivanje evangelij v tej starosti (Opomba: "kratka delo", ki ga Pavel govori v Rimljanom 9:28 in dokončanje Mateju 24:14 bo verjetno vključuje veliko pokrivanje novic o tem, kaj najbolj zvesti jata je poučevanje To seveda ne pomeni, da bi bilo najbolj zvesti sedeti in čakati in ne storiti svoj del-CF John 9:.. 4; Matthew 9: 37- 38-kot prednostna naloga oznanjevanja evangelija ostane). Seveda, bi morali ljudje odzovejo, ko so izvedeli, tisti, ki zavračajo resnico tvegajo kaznivega neodpustljiv greh .

Vendar pa je Bog vedno imel načrt shranjen, in tistimi, ki niso zares nikoli razumel njegov načrt ljubezni, se je pokazala v svetih spisih, in medtem ko je "starosti, da pridejo," to ni isto kot relativno sodobni ideji o vicah.

Nekateri izdelki za nadaljnje preiskave, lahko vključujejo:

Ali Early Church Teach vice? Ali obstaja kraj imenuje vice? Does God have a plan to help those who did not become saints in this life?
What is Limbo? Is There Such a Place as Limbo? What Happens to Babies When They Die? When did Limbo start being taught? What is the truth about dead babies?
Universal Ponudba Salvation: Obstaja na stotine verzov v Bibliji Podpora doktrina True Apocatastasis Menite, kaj Sveto pismo v resnici uči o tem? Bodo vse dobre stvari obnoviti? Ali Božji načrt odrešenja vzeti upor in duhovno slepoto upoštevati?
Upanje na odrešitev: Kako Dnevna Božja Cerkev razlikuje od večine protestantov Kako Dnevna Božja Cerkev razlikuje od mainstream / tradicionalnih protestanti, je morda vprašanje, sem najbolj tisti, vprašal brez Cerkev Boga ozadju.
Should the Church Still Try to Place its Top Priority on Proclaiming the Gospel or Did Herbert W. Armstrong Change that Priority for the Work?

Occupy Oakland Turns Violent, About 300 Arrested

Sunday, January 29th, 2012

COGwriter

About 300 protesters in 'Occupy Oakland got arrested:

29 January 2012

(AP) OAKLAND, Calif. — Dozens of police maintained a late-night guard around City Hall following daylong protests that resulted in 300 arrests. Occupy Oakland demonstrators broke into the historic building and burned a US flag, as officers earlier fired tear gas to disperse people throwing rocks and tearing down fencing at a convention center…

Interim Police Chief Howard Jordan said about 300 arrests were made.

“These demonstrators stated their intention was to provoke officers and engage in illegal activity and that's exactly what has occurred today,” Santana said…

{Oakland Mayor Quan said} “This is not a situation where we had a 1,000 peaceful people and a few violent people. If you look at what's happening today in terms of destructing property, throwing at and charging the police, it's almost like they are begging for attention and hoping that the police will make an error.” http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-201_162-57367945/300-arrested-in-occupy-oakland-protests/

Occupy Oakland protests turned violent Saturday as demonstrators broke into a historic building and burned an American flag, and officers fired tear gas to disperse people throwing rocks and tearing down fencing at a convention center. http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Latest-News-Wires/2012/0129/Occupy-Oakland-protests-bring-300-arrests

Back on October 9, 2011, I posted the following on this news page (see Occupy Wall Street, Occupy Seattle, Occupy Vancouver, etc. ):
I have been writing for a long time that civil unrest and riots will happen in the USA and the other Anglo-descended lands… Some consider this “Occupy” movement simply a political protest, a new “Tea Party,” except for the Left instead of the Right. I suspect that ultimately it will turn violent and the USA and other lands will face riots and civil unrest, and the politicians and pundits who have seemed to support this will later have regrets.

As I reported yesterday, I believe that there will be more violence in the USA. Some in the Occupy Movement and/or some once associated with it will later stir up more violence. Much more than happened in Oakland.

The sorrows and troubles are just beginning (Matthew 24:5-8) and will get much worse (Matthew 24:21-22). I believe that class warfare and other protests will help weaken the USA and other Anglo-nations and may also be a factor in them being vulnerable to real warfare: invasion by the Beast .

Syria Getting More Desperate and Violent

Sunday, January 29th, 2012

Syria's President Bashar al-Assad (Source: Agência Brasil, Wikipedia)
بشار الأسد

COGwriter

Today's news has the following:

Fox News - ‎29 January 2012
BEIRUT – The Syrian military launched an offensive to regain control of suburbs on the eastern edge of Damascus Sunday, storming neighborhoods and clashing with groups of army defectors in fierce fighting that sent residents fleeing.. .

The ten-month uprising against Assad, which began with largely peaceful demonstrations, has become increasingly militarized recently as more frustrated protesters and army defectors have taken up arms against the regime.

The assault on the suburbs seemed to be a sign of the growing presence of dissident soldiers closer to Damascus, and the regime's rising concern about the situation.

Egyptian Gazette - ‎29 January 2012

ISTANBUL – The Gulf Arab states and Turkey, which have spearheaded regional condemnation of the Syrian regime for its deadly crackdown, urged Damascus Saturday to accept an Arab League plan to stop the bloodshed “without delay”.

The Syrian government is getting more desperate and increasingly isolated on the world scene.

Something will have to change.

Notice what the Bible shows will happen to to Syria's capital Damascus:

1 An oracle concerning Damascus:
“See, Damascus will no longer be a city but will become a heap of ruins. 2 The cities of Aroer will be deserted and left to flocks, which will lie down,with no one to make them afraid. 3 The fortified city will disappear from Ephraim,and royal power from Damascus;the remnant of Aram will be like the glory of the Israelites,” declares the LORD Almighty. (Isaiah 17:1-3)

3 Thus says the Lord:
“For three transgressions of Damascus, and for four,
I will not turn away its punishment…5 I will also break the gate bar of Damascus,
And cut off the inhabitant from the Valley of Aven,
And the one who holds the scepter from Beth Eden.
The people of Syria shall go captive to Kir,”
Says the Lord. (Amos 1:3, 5)

Syria's President Assad might decide his personal best option is to more closely support Iran and perhaps be involved in an invasion of Jerusalem and Israel. If so, this might be how Isaiah 17:1 is fulfilled.

And FWIW, perhaps I should mention that technically, Syria is still at war with Israel as it never did sign a peace deal with Israel. So an actual war involving Syria and Israel is quite feasible. If so, Israel may hit back so hard that it might eliminate Damascus as Isaiah 17:1 says will happen.

Much is going on in the Middle East.

As Jesus said in Mark 13:37, we all should watch.

Scientific Doomsday and Bible Prophecy

Saturday, January 28th, 2012

“Orthodox” 16th Century Representation of the “Apocalypse”
COGwriter

A reader send a link to the following today:
Scientific Doomsday: Ways the World Could Actually End
.
So, let's look at several that the article listed–they will be in bold italic type with my comments below them.
.
Asteroid Accident/Comet Collision
.
The Bible indicates that an asteroid or comet (more likely a comet from the Wormwood description in Revelation) will hit the earth and cause major damage–but not enough so the world would actually end (for details see NASA Indirectly Confirms Wormwood Prophecy ).
.
Killer Contagion
.
Jesus spoke of pestilences as part of the “beginning of sorrows” (Matthew 24:1-8). The Book of Revelation also discusses the fourth horseman of death, which likely includes pestilences (for details see Fourth Horseman of the Apocalypse ). But this will not end the world.
.
Solar Slaughter
.
I have written about this many times and consider solar flares a likely way to fulfill Revelation 16:8-9, but there are other risks. (see also NASA Says Peak Solar Flare to be After 2012) . An item in tonight's news is also of interest:
The State Column - ‎29 January 2012
A string of massive solar storms have unleashed their fury on the Earth in the last 48 hours, just the first set of strong solar storms expected to hit our planet in the coming months.

NASA scientists report that the most solar flare — the strongest one to date this year — erupted Friday from the same active region of the sun that triggered a raging solar tempest earlier this week

NASA's Goddard Space Weather Center said the latest coronal mass ejection (CME) was moving at almost 1,553 miles per second, warning that it could cause a number of disruptions.

Solar flare-ups and other factors affecting electricity can and will cause problems, but not the end of the world.
While we are getting closer, the end is NOT yet and none of those items will actually end the earth. We seem to be in the time warned of by Jesus as the beginning of sorrows.
.
World events, however, are aligning with properly understood biblical prophecy. It is interesting that some scientists are agreeing that events consistent with end time biblical prophecy can have serious consequences.

Some articles of related interest may include the following:

Can the Great Tribulation Begin in 2012, 2013, or 2014? Can the Great Tribulation begin today? What happens before in the “beginning of sorrows”? Kaj se zgodi v veliki stiski in Gospodov dan? Ko je prej, da lahko veliki stiski začeti? Kaj je dan Gospodov?

Apostle Paul Popularity

Saturday, January 28th, 2012

COGwriter

So far this month, one of the top ten most popular article at the COGwriter.com website is about the Apostle Paul. Here is how it is listed on the www.cogwriter.com home page:

The Apostle Paul He was a later apostle, but also an early Christian leader.

This particular article has not ever been particularly popular in the past, but thousands have viewed it this month.

Contrary to the assertions of many, Paul was not one who did away with biblical practices such as the Sabbath, Ten Commandments, and the Holy Days.

Actually, near the end of his life he declared:

17 And it came to pass after three days that Paul called the leaders of the Jews together. So when they had come together, he said to them: “Men and brethren, though I have done nothing against our people or the customs of our fathers, yet I was delivered as a prisoner from Jerusalem into the hands of the Romans, 18 who, when they had examined me, wanted to let me go, because there was no cause for putting me to death. 19 But when the Jews spoke against it, I was compelled to appeal to Caesar, not that I had anything of which to accuse my nation (Acts 28:17-19).

Which means he kept the Sabbath, Holy Days, and the Ten Commandments.

The Ten Commandments were alreay discussed, so let's look at the Sabbath:

Notice that the Apostle Paul was inspired to write:

Now we who have believed enter that rest, just as God has said, “So I declared on oath in my anger, 'They shall never enter my rest.'” And yet his work has been finished since the creation of the world. For somewhere he has spoken about the seventh day in these words: “And on the seventh day God rested from all his work.” And again in the passage above he says, “They shall never enter my rest.” It still remains that some will enter that rest, and those who formerly had the gospel preached to them did not go in, because of their disobedience…There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; for anyone who enters God's rest also rests from his own work, just as God did from his. Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will fall by following their example of disobedience (Hebrews 4:3-6,9-11, NIV).

Acts 13:42-44 shows what Paul did,

In the days of unleavened bread Paul , coming down from Galatia, arrived in Asia, considering the repose among the faithful in Smyrna to be a great refreshment in Christ Jesus after his severe toil, and intending afterwards to depart to Jerusalem. So in Smyrna he went to visit Strataeas, who had been his hearer in Pamphylia, being a son of Eunice the daughter of Lois. These are they of whom he makes mention when writing to Timothy, saying; Of the unfeigned faith that is in thee, which dwelt first in thy grandmother Lois and in thy mother Eunice; whence we find that Strataeas was a brother of Timothy. Paul then, entering his house and gathering together the faithful there, speaks to them concerning the Passover and the Pentecost, reminding them of the New Covenant of the offering of bread and the cup; how that they ought most assuredly to celebrate it during the days of unleavened bread, but to hold fast the new mystery of the Passion and Resurrection. For here the Apostle plainly teaches that we ought neither to keep it outside the season of unleavened bread, as the heretics do, especially the Phrygians…but named the days of unleavened bread, the Passover, and the Pentecost, thus ratifying the Gospel (Pionius. Life of Polycarp, Chapter 2. Translated by JB Lightfoot, The Apostolic Fathers, vol. 3.2, 1889, pp.488-506).

Thus, the “apostle to the Gentiles” (Romans 11:13), taught Gentile Christians in Asia Minor to keep the Holy Days. Days many now consider to be Jewish and not Christian–but apparently Paul considered them important for all Christians to keep (see also 1 Corinthians 5:7-8 where he told the Gentiles in Corinth to keep them as well).

Paul also wrote:

Imitate me, just as I also imitate Christ (1 Corinthians 11:1).

Jesus kept the Sabbath , Ten Commandments , and the Feasts . Do you follow the practices of Jesus and Paul?
