I'm a born-again Christian, active member of the body of Christ, husband and father, and Bible teacher. I love to study Scripture, and firmly believe it is the only credible standard for truth.

Aside from my devotion to God, His people, and His word, I don't really have any loyalty to a particular doctrine or creed.

@user2479 I updated my post to clarify what I meant. Hope that helps.

@user2479 Like I said before, if you have any interest in understanding what I have written or how I (along with most commentators) perceive the problems in Corinth, I would be happy to take the time to explain further. But so far all you have given me is agitated ranting.

comment Are there two different types of “tongues” spoken about in the NT?
@user2479 I haven't said anything about "tongues of angels", nor did the OP, nor does 1 Cor. 14. Nor have I said anything to "denigrate" the spiritual gift of tongues. Paul clearly believed in the gift of tongues, as do I. I am not a cessationist. It seems like you are upset about something that I said, but I'm not sure what exactly. TBH I'm a bit surprised by your reaction to my post, as I would have thought that everything I wrote would be fairly obvious in reading through 1 Cor (as most commentaries have noted.) You seem to either be trolling, misreading me, or biased against my conclusion.

comment Qualifications for deacons and pastors in 1 Timothy 3:1-12
Yes. One point of clarification though: the first part of the passage describes the qualifications for "overseers" (i.e. elders) -- not "pastors".

@user2479 If you would like me to help you understand my answer better (or the text) I would be happy to make time to do that for you. If you are just trolling and want to fight with me I won't waste any more time trying to explain.

@user2479 I think you might be confusing Paul's appreciation for the spiritual gift of tongues with the Corinthians' self-centered abuse of that gift, which Paul pretty clearly was not OK with.
