The Living God and the God of the Living

Posted by cr0cus ... on Wednesday, April 18, 2012, In : T.E.n.T.makers 

"And regarding your speculation on whether the dead are raised or not, don't you read your Bibles? The grammar is clear: God says, 'I am--not was--the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, the God of Jacob.' The living God defines himself not as the God of dead men, but of the living." (Mat 22:31-32 MSG)

"You call me 'Teacher' and 'Lord,' and rightly so, for that is what I am. Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another's feet. I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.”” (John 13:12-15 NIV)

Posted by cr0cus ... on Wednesday, April 18, 2012, In : T.E.n.T.makers 

"The Pharisees and the teachers of the Law are experts in the Law of Moses. So obey everything they teach you, but don't do as they do. After all, they say one thing and do something else." (Mat 23:2-3 CEV)

The Ultimate Goal of Tentmaking

Posted by cr0cus ... on Wednesday, April 18, 2012, In : T.E.n.T.makers 

"Paul lived and worked with them, for they were tentmakers just as he was. Each Sabbath found Paul at the synagogue, trying to convince the Jews and Greeks alike. And after Silas and Timothy came down from Macedonia, Paul spent his full time preaching and testifying to the Jews, telling them, "The Messiah you are looking for is Jesus."" (Acts 18:3-5 NLT)
