Born in a Stable and He Saved the World

Phil 2:7 “He emptied himself, taking the form of a bondservant and being made in the likeness of men.”

For a very confused world Christmas is here!  For them it is the time for celebration of Santa, elves, reindeer, mistletoe, snow, decoration, gifts, parties, football, TV holiday specials, Christmas songs, holiday cheer, holly, mistletoe, shopping, spending money.

Even though not the real date of Jesus’ birth, such a blessing can be enjoyed by people who view it instead as a time for deep heartfelt thankfulness, when we give honor to the most important, courageous, loving, wise and humble man to have ever lived; the man Christ Jesus, our Savior and Lord.

Listen to a spiritual, worshipful and respectful view of the message of Jesus birth from the Bible Students Christian Questions Radio program.   Simply click here to enjoy.

        Domenic, there are even Methodist, Baptist and different divisions. What you should do is go to each of these groups and speak to them each individually about their beliefs. Here you are dealing with us on this site. I personally don’t speak for another group of Christians, go to each website of these groups. They won’t discuss what we believe here as they probably aren’t really sure. What I am saying is pressing into a mold does no good, deal with us on here and them on their sites and don’t expect us to speak for our neighbor. By BS you think they broke away from an organization, there was no organization until Rutherford tried to push it on these groups so really they broke away from the organization forming at that time now known as Jehovah witnesses. So it seems you should contrast them with the witnesses.
        Dealing with scriptures instead of smokescreens dealing with people and groups will in my estimation be more productive.

      Domenic Wiki is nice for info but it still is not the bible. Attacking groups or people when you have the bible is not productive. I prefer to stick with the bible. If some want to associate with any of the groups mentioned on Wiki, they have that freedom. God gave it to them and who are you or I to judge them. Why even Christ has not begun the judgement yet. Should you or I push ahead of him. He died for them as well as you and I.

    To Domenic;

    You might be interested to know that I researched Brother Russell’s writing and that verse was never touched on by him.

    But you must take into account, he was a very busy person. And at that time the work was gathering the chosen ones who would become future if faithful members of the bride of Christ. So that verse was not needed to do that job.

    But don’t think he made it all wine and roses for those joining the faith. Read this from one of his books. Vol. IV pages 368 and 630. “It is proper, however, that we pause here to notice a difference between such a mere stumbling of the flesh, and a willful fall from grace, after we had tasted the good Word of God and of the powers of the age to come, and become partakers of the holy Spirit, -a fall from which it would be impossible to be recovered.” (Heb. 6:4-6; 10:26.)

    630, (Heb.6:4-6.) “It is fir us to know the fulfillment of these Scriptures, and to have no fellowship with such unfruitful works of darkness, but rather to reprove them, and to withdraw ourselves from the company of those who walk not after the teachings of the Apostle, and who hold not the faith once delivered to the saints, nor its spirit; for all such are on Satan’s side, opponents of the Lord and his plan, of which the Atonement, the Ransom is the center or hub.” 2 Pet. 2:21; 2 Thess. 3:6; Jude 3.

    So I ask you Domenic, does that sound like excommunicate one from fellowship?
    Does that say they few people who were with them as being on Satan’s side?

    I was raised Catholic, alter boy, etc. Went back to Church three Sundays in a row, and have not been back sense. So, no I am not.

    What is a good choice for Domenic now? Learn from Peter quickly is a aggressive study. When you get there, you might be ready for the next step.
