“All the men of past ages did whatever they did for themselves and we can learn valuable lessons from their victories and mistakes.” You did not answer my question. As you have stated that the early christian pioneers such as “Athanasius the Great” had valuable victories, these victories must be discussed and learnt as to strengthen ourselves from similar circamstances. We must introduce it as it will only make us stronger in faith. Thoughts please.

This issue has been dealt with in earlier questions. What Athanasius did in his life was his life. What we do today is our life. How much his life can help us we could discuss at length. We prefer to study the men of God found in scripture – that is what will make us stronger. In there we read […]

“Out of interest, would you elaborate which aspects of our theology you have issues with?” That only your church contains the Truth! That people’s dress code is more important than their souls. The many man made rules your charch has. That your church is judgemental…

We respectfully disagree with your statement that only our Church contains the truth. I am not sure where that came from. If you look at our past answers to your questions and others, we explain ourselves clearly. We point to God’s Word as the truth. Your second issue here relates to worldliness. God’s word tells us not to be conformed […]

“We understand that this is not the view of all churches, but it is our position.” Isn’t your position wrong because Jesus does not forbid us from learning more about him? I think reading about people who were close to God could offer advice to help us also. I’m sure Jesus… would want us to learn about Christ from other people’s lives…. It is impossible to think that our God is contained in one book. The creator of everything we have contained in one book. Isn’t the truth contained within us and not given to us by the pastors own interpretation?

The issues you raise here are a little misplaced. Jesus does not forbid us to learn more about Him. He does warn us to be careful of whom we place our trust in. We are comfortable placing our trust in Him and His word. Our Church does not restrict anyone from learning more about Him. If you feel that your […]

“No denomination, institution or “Church” is the Truth or the sole repository of the Truth.” Your theology seems to forget the fact that the scripture says that the ‘Church is the ground and the pillar of Truth,’ It does not say that the scriptures are the ground and the pillar of the truth. Isn’t all truth contained in the Church, including the Bible?

Your state your points clearly enough. Now please point to the scripture that supports what you say. We start with scripture as our reference point in all discussions. Where does it say that today’s “Church is the ground and the pillar of Truth?” Where do we find the scripture that supports your principle that “All truth is contained in the […]

“No denomination, institution or “Church” is the Truth or the sole repository of the Truth.” If you believe this, then are you not calling Christ a liar?

We could have an academic argument over this but that would not be in our interest. Jesus said “I am the way the truth and the life”. He made the point very clear when speaking to the Samaritan woman in John 4:19-26: “The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet. Our fathers worshipped in this […]

“The early Christians met on the first day of the week to do the Lord s supper. That is good enough for us.” – If that is good enough then why don’t you hold onto other practices of the early Christians?

0 in Questions

Your question is a good one. There are many things in scripture that have been given to us to follow. Jesus said that if we love Him, we will obey His commandments. There are many things in the early church that we do not do today and the reasons that we do not do them today is because they were […]

“All the men of past ages did whatever they did for themselves and we can learn valuable lessons from their victories and mistakes.” – So why dont we spend time reading about them at church?

Thanks you for your question. Since you use the expression “our church”, you probably attend the Greek Free Church but the answer below applies in any case. If there is one thing we aim to do from the pulpit of our church it is to spend as much time possible studying the Word of God. In there we read about […]

Which day of the week is your “day of rest” – Saturday or Sunday?

0 in Questions

The day of rest of the Lord’s Day for us in Sunday. The debate in the past and present in some circles is whether it should be the Sabbath, as was held by the Jews. Paul says in Romans 14:5-6 “One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his […]

You have mentioned Saint Athanasius quite positively. Wasn’t he also known to history as the “Father of Orthodoxy”? AND Who was St Athanasius? He sounds like a Greek Orthodox saint to me.

0 in Questions

Yes to both questions. As with many others during that time, he was one of the early pioneers of the faith and stood up for many truths. The result of all his efforts and the efforts of others will one day be revealed and rewarded by the Lord Himself. The real question for us is in whose footsteps are we […]
