Repent "Metanoeo" i look on this and i found some interesting study i like to post that .


Metanoia (theology)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
For other uses, see Metanoia (disambiguation).
Merge-arrows.svg
It has been suggested that this article or section be merged with Repentance (theology). (Discuss) Proposed since January 2010.

Metanoeo (from the Greek μετάνοια, metanoia, changing one's mind) in the context of theological discussion, where it is used often, is usually interpreted to mean repentance. However, some people[citation needed] argue that the word should be interpreted more literally to denote changing one's mind, in the sense of embracing thoughts beyond its present limitations or thought patterns (an interpretation which is compatible with the denotative meaning of repentance but replaces its negative connotation with a positive one, focusing on the superior state being approached rather than the inferior prior state being departed from).

[edit] Biblical references

From the Greek μετάνοια—compounded from the preposition μετά (after, with) and the verb νοέω (to perceive, to think, the result of perceiving or observing)—metanoia means "a change of mind". In Christianity, the term refers to spiritual conversion. The word appears often in the Gospels. It is usually translated into English as "repent":

and saying, "The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near; repent, and believe in the good news."
καὶ λέγων ὅτι πεπλήρωται ὁ καιρὸς καὶ ἤγγικεν ἡ βασιλεία τοῦ θεοῦ: μετανοεῖτε καὶ πιστεύετε ἐν τῷ εὐαγγελίῳ.
(Mark [1] )

[edit] Theology

In theology, metanoia is used to refer to the change of mind which is brought about in repentance. Repentance is necessary and valuable because it brings about change of mind or metanoia. This change of mind will result in the altered persona deprecating sin, though replicating good will, benevolence, and integration of self in relation to Universal harmony or deity. The two terms (repentance and metanoia) are often used interchangeably.

However, the prefix "meta-" carries with it other variants that are consistent with the Eastern Greek philosophical mindset, and perhaps is at odds with Western views. "Meta-" is additionally used to imply "beyond" and "outside of." E.g., metamorphosis as a beyond-change; and, metaphysics as outside the limits of physics. "Meta" also means "next to"or "after" as in metaphysics, where the books we call metaphysics were placed next to or after the books on physics.

The Greek term for repentance, metanoia, denotes a change of mind, a reorientation, a fundamental transformation of outlook, of an individual's vision of the world and of her/himself, and a new way of loving others and the Universe. In the words of a second-century text, The Shepherd of Hermas, it implies "great understanding," discernment. It involves, that is, not mere regret of past evil but a recognition by a person of a darkened vision of her/his own condition, in which sin, by separating her/him from Deity, has reduced her/him to a divided, autonomous existence, depriving her/him of both her/his natural glory and freedom. "Repentance," says Basil the Great, "is salvation, but lack of understanding is the death of repentance." Repentance thereby acquires a different dimension to mere dwelling on human sinfulness, and becomes the realization of human insufficiency and limitation. Repentance then should not be accompanied by a paroxysm of guilt but by an awareness of one's estrangement from Deity and one's neighbor.[1]
[edit] Etymology

Metanoia (from the Greek μετάνοια, metanoia, changing one's mind, repentance) has different meanings in different contexts, for other uses see Metanoia (disambiguation).

Now i like to complement this with some i saw on my brother blog I am Spirit


The True Definition of “Repent” – Author Unknown
Published July 18, 2011

originally found here



To repent does not mean what most people think it means. It means to change the way you think..which will thus change one’s actions.

“Repent” is likely the most misunderstood word in the Bible today. A misunderstanding of this word can and does change the true Gospel of Christ. It is used many times in the Bible and a misunderstanding of it will alter the meaning of any passage of scripture where it is used.

First of all let’s understand what it does not mean so that we can grasp the true meaning.

It does not mean to turn away from sin.
It does not mean to quit sinning.
It does not mean to feel sorry for sin.
It does not mean to change your sinful ways before you can be saved.
It does not imply salvation.
It is not the means of forgiveness of sin.
It is not salvation nor does it imply that we should live a sinless life.
It does not imply sin.

To understand its true meaning lets do a bit of history of the Greek language.

There have been many types of Greek in the past most of which are obsolete now but in the days of Alexander the Great a number of Greek languages existed. After Alexander had conquered the known world around 300 BC he had a problem communicating with the many Greeks under his rule. Rather than learn all of the different types of Greek himself Alexander invented a Greek language called “coine” or common Greek. It was common in that all of the Greek speaking world would be required to learn it in order to resolve the communication problem.

This new Greek language was very precise and mathematical in its precision. Every word had a four fold navigational fix. A word could have only one meaning. It could have several applications but only one interpretation. In English, words can have several meanings but not in the coine (pronounced coin-a) Greek. It was one word, one meaning. In other words, there was no doubt about what was being said in this language. Eventually, this language became the dominate language of the New Testament.

If you have looked up “repent” in your handy Bible dictionary you will likely discover that it gives a definition of everything that I said repent is not. Why is this? Dictionaries get their definitions of words from its common usage. Religions and denominations have distorted the gospel for many years and therefore the word repent as well. In other words the writers of a dictionary get the meaning from different religious organizations and give several different meanings of the word in their publication without regards to the original language that it was translated from.

Compound words were very common in the coine Greek and this brings us to our subject

In the New Testament there are two different Greek words which have been translated repent. The word repent is an English word. It is an obsolete old English word and means nothing to us today. It was not even used in the Bible until the King James Bible came along in 1611. It was translated from the compound Greek words Metanoeo and Metamellamai. These two words have completely different meanings and remember in the coine Greek a word can have only one meaning so how can anyone give one definition or numerous definitions to the word repent? There must be two and only two definitions for repent.

1. Metanoeo. This is a compound word. “Meta” means change “noeo” means thinking. This word is derived from “nous” which means mind. So, metanoeo means to “change your mind”

2. Metamellamai. This is also a compound word. “Meta” means change
“mellamai” means emotions. It means to have a “change of emotions”.



Some brilliant mind somewhere along the way added “of sin” to repent and came up with the moronic phrase “repent of your sins” and someone else added “and be saved” and came up with “repent of your sins and be saved.” This is a false gospel because it leaves out two things. Faith and Jesus Christ. People who use the phrase “repent of your sins as a condition preceding salvation or as forgiveness of sin are either ignorant or are intentionally teaching a false gospel. Anywhere metanoeo is translated repent you can substitute “change your mind” and the verse will make sense. If you are thinking “of sins” after you see repent the whole gospel message shifts from accepting the free gift of God to something you have to do as a condition of salvation.

In 2 Corinthians 7 the word metanoeo is used in verse 9 and 10. Read verse 10 carefully. “For Godly sorry WORKETH repentance (metanoeo a change of mind) to salvation”…

Notice that “Godly sorry” is not repentance but rather it works to repentance. In other words a person can become sorrowful of his sinful ways and then repent (change his mind about Christ.) Jesus Christ is always the object of salvation not turning away, refraining, quitting or whatever of sin. In Mark 1:15 Jesus said speaking to unbelievers in Galilee “Repent (metanoeo change your mind) and believe the Gospel.” It tells us right here what we are to change our mind about. The Gospel, not our sins. He was speaking to unbelievers who did not believe the gospel. We are condemned because of unbelief not because of our sins:

John 3:18 “He that believeth on him is not condemned, but he that believeth not is condemned already BECAUSE he has not believed in the name of the uniquely born Son of God.”

Since we are condemned because of unbelief does it not follow that we should turn from our unbelieving mind and not our sins? We are not condemned because of sin. Sins were forgiven the once-for-all sacrifice of Christ (2 Cor. 5:19, Hebrews 10, 1 John2 :2). Changing your mind about Christ is repenting which will lead to salvation.

In Matthew 3:2 John was preaching to unbelievers in the wilderness of Judaea and said “Repent ye: for the kingdom of Heaven is at hand.” If Repent means turn from your sin or feel sorry for your sins John was remiss in his preaching because he failed to mention Jesus Christ and faith. We know from the above verse (John 3:1 that John teaches that believing is salvation and not believing is condemnation. So we can conclude that John was telling the people of Judaea to change their unbelieving mind and believe in Christ thus establishing his meaning of repenting. We have already seen that metanoeo does not indicate sin and sin is not found anywhere in this passage.

Repentance is the act of changing your mind about something. Not necessarily sin or not necessarily anything. So, how do we know what to change our mind about? What we change our mind about is determined by the subject of the passage. For example: We find in the next verse (Matthew 3:3) that the subject is the Lord. “Prepare ye the way of the Lord” In other words John was saying change your unbelieving mind because the Kingdom of Heaven is coming and be prepared for the Lord. John was preaching the gospel and not about sin. So, the subject is the Lord and not sin.

Whenever metamellamai (change emotions) is translated repent it is simply telling us that someone became sorrowful of something he had done. Judas became sorrowful about betraying Jesus in Matthew 27:3 to the extent that he hanged himself. It does not mean that we will be saved if we feel sorry for our sin.

“Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself (metaamellamai, changed emotions) and brought again (returned) the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed innocent blood. And they said, what is that to us? See thou to that. (that is your own business.)

Judas was never saved (Acts 5:37) although he repented of his sin and confessed his sin. Judas was simply sorry that he was responsible for sending an innocent man to his death.

When someone tries to add “repenting of sin” or emotionalism to the free gift of God he is saying that what Jesus Christ did for us is not enough. We cannot do anything about our sin. This is why Jesus Christ had to die on the cross as a substitute for us;

“The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23)

Repenting of sins is a human work as is becoming emotional. Works will not save us because the payment for sin is (spiritual) death. Works are not spiritual death therefore it is not salvation.

If all you have done is to repent of your sins you are not saved. Salvation comes by faith in Christ alone. Believing is a non-meritorious act and requires nothing of us except a change of mind.

“And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses” (Acts 13:39)

“For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: Yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commended his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died (as a substitute) for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood (sacrificial death) we shall be saved from wrath through him. (Romans 5:7-9)

“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God has raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (Romans 10:9-10).

Metanoia (do μετάνοια grego, metanoia, mudar a mente de alguém) no contexto da discussão teológica, onde é usado, muitas vezes, é geralmente interpretado como arrependimento. No entanto, algumas pessoas [carece de fontes?] Argumentam que a palavra deve ser interpretada mais literalmente para denotar mudar a mente, no sentido de abraçar pensamentos para além das suas atuais limitações ou padrões de pensamento (uma interpretação que é compatível com o significado denotativo de arrependimento, mas substitui sua conotação negativa, com uma forma positiva, enfocando o estado superior de ser abordado e não o Estado antes de ser inferior partiram).

Do grego μετάνοια-agravado a partir da preposição μετά (depois de, com) eo νοέω verbo (de perceber, pensar, o resultado de perceber ou observar)-metanoia significa "uma mudança de mente". No cristianismo, o termo refere-se a conversão espiritual. A palavra aparece muitas vezes nos Evangelhos. É geralmente traduzido em Inglês como "arrepender-se":

e dizendo: "O tempo está cumprido, eo reino de Deus está próximo;. fazei penitência e crede na boa notícia"
καὶ λέγων ὅτι πεπλήρωται ὁ καιρὸς καὶ ἤγγικεν ἡ βασιλεία τοῦ θεοῦ: μετανοεῖτε καὶ πιστεύετε ἐν τῷ εὐαγγελίῳ.
(Mark [1])

[Editar] Teologia

Na teologia, metanoia é usado para se referir à mudança de mentalidade que é trazida em arrependimento. O arrependimento é necessária e valiosa porque traz sobre a mudança da mente ou metanoia. Esta mudança de espírito irá resultar no pecado persona alteradas depreciativo, embora replicar boa vontade, benevolência, ea integração do ser em relação à harmonia Universal ou deidade. Os dois termos (arrependimento e metanoia) são muitas vezes usados ​​como sinônimos.

No entanto, o prefixo "meta" traz consigo outras variantes que são consistentes com a mentalidade grega filosófica oriental e, talvez, está em desacordo com vista ocidental. "Meta" é adicionalmente utilizados para atribuir "além" e "fora de". Por exemplo, como uma metamorfose além da mudança-e, a metafísica como fora dos limites da física. "Meta" também significa "ao lado" ou "depois", como na metafísica, onde os livros que chamamos de metafísica foram colocados ao lado ou depois dos livros de física.

O termo grego para o arrependimento, metanóia, denota uma mudança de mentalidade, uma reorientação, uma transformação fundamental de perspectiva, de visão de um indivíduo do mundo e de sua / si mesmo, e um novo modo de amar os outros e do universo. Nas palavras de um texto do século II, O Pastor de Hermas, que implica "grande entendimento", discernimento. Trata-se de, ou seja, não se arrepender do mal mera passado, mas um reconhecimento por uma pessoa de uma visão escurecida do seu / sua própria condição, em que o pecado, separando ela / ele de Deidade, reduziu ela / ele a uma dividida, existência autônoma, privando ela / ele de ambos os her / a sua glória, natural e liberdade. "Arrependimento", diz Basílio, o Grande ", é a salvação, mas a falta de entendimento é a morte de arrependimento." Arrependimento, assim, adquire uma dimensão diferente à residência simples na pecaminosidade humana, e torna-se a realização de insuficiência humanos e limitação. Arrependimento, então não deve ser acompanhado por um paroxismo de culpa, mas por uma consciência da própria alienação da Divindade e ao próximo. [1]

A verdadeira definição de "Arrependei-vos" - Autor Desconhecido
Publicado em 18 de julho de 2011

originalmente encontrada aqui

-

Arrepender-se não significa que a maioria das pessoas acha que isso significa. Isso significa mudar a maneira que você pensa .. o que permitirá alterar as ações de cada um.

"Arrependei-vos" é provavelmente a palavra mais incompreendido na Bíblia hoje. A incompreensão desta palavra pode mudar e muda o verdadeiro Evangelho de Cristo. Ela é usada muitas vezes na Bíblia e um mal-entendido de que irá alterar o significado de uma passagem de escritura onde é usado.

Primeiro de tudo vamos entender o que não significa que possamos compreender o verdadeiro significado.

Isso não significa se afastar do pecado.
Isso não significa parar de pecar.
Isso não significa sentir pena de pecado.
Isso não significa mudar seus modos pecaminosos antes que você possa ser salvo.
Não implica a salvação.
Não é o meio do perdão dos pecados.
Não é a salvação, nem implica que devemos viver uma vida sem pecado.
Não implica pecado.

Para entender seu verdadeiro significado permite fazer um pouco de história da língua grega.

Tem havido muitos tipos de grego na maioria dos últimos dos quais são obsoletos agora, mas nos dias de Alexandre, o um grande número de línguas grega existiu. Depois que Alexandre tinha conquistado o mundo conhecido cerca de 300 aC, ele teve um problema de comunicação com os muitos gregos sob seu domínio. Ao invés de aprender todos os tipos diferentes de si mesmo grego Alexander inventou um idioma grego chamado "coine" ou grego comum. Era comum em que todos os países de língua grega seria necessário para aprendê-la, a fim de resolver o problema de comunicação.

Esta nova linguagem grega foi muito precisa e matemática em sua precisão. Cada palavra tinha um fix quatro vezes de navegação. Uma palavra só pode ter um significado. Poderia ter várias aplicações, mas apenas uma interpretação. Em Inglês, as palavras podem ter vários significados, mas não no coine (pronuncia-se coin-a) grega. Foi uma palavra, um significado. Em outras palavras, não havia dúvida sobre o que estava sendo dito nesta língua. Eventualmente, essa linguagem tornou-se dominar a língua do Novo Testamento.

Se você olhou para cima "arrepender" na sua dicionário bíblico acessível você provavelmente vai descobrir que ele dá uma definição de tudo o que eu disse se arrepender não. Por que isso? Dicionários se suas definições de palavras de seu uso comum. Religiões e denominações têm distorcido o evangelho por muitos anos e, portanto, a palavra se arrepender também. Em outras palavras os autores de um dicionário obter o significado de diferentes organizações religiosas e dar vários significados diferentes da palavra em sua publicação, sem que se refere à língua original que foi traduzido a partir de.

Palavras compostas eram muito comuns no grego coine e isso nos leva ao nosso assunto

No Novo Testamento há duas palavras gregas diferentes que foram traduzidos arrepender. A palavra arrependimento é uma palavra em Inglês. É uma palavra antiga obsoletas Inglês e não significa nada para nós hoje. Não foi ainda usada na Bíblia até a Bíblia King James veio em 1611. Foi traduzido do composto palavras gregas e metanoeo Metamellamai. Estas duas palavras têm significados completamente diferentes e lembre-se na coine uma palavra grega só pode ter um significado assim como pode qualquer um dar uma definição ou várias definições para a palavra arrepender-se? Deve haver duas e apenas duas definições para se arrepender.

1. Metanoeo. Esta é uma palavra composta. "Meta" significa mudança "noeo" significa pensar. Esta palavra é derivada de "nous", que significa mente. Assim, metanoeo significa "mudar de idéia"

2. Metamellamai. Esta é também uma palavra composta. "Meta" significa mudança
"Mellamai" significa emoções. Que significa ter uma "mudança de emoções".



Alguma mente brilhante em algum lugar ao longo do caminho acrescentado "do pecado" arrepender-se e veio com a imbecil frase "arrepender dos seus pecados", e alguém acrescentou: "e ser salvos" e veio com "se arrepender de seus pecados e ser salvos." Este é um falso evangelho, porque deixa de fora duas coisas. Fé e Jesus Cristo. Pessoas que usam a frase se arrepender "de seus pecados como uma salvação condição anterior ou como perdão dos pecados ou são ignorantes ou são intencionalmente ensinando um falso evangelho. Metanoeo qualquer lugar é traduzido arrepender você pode substituir "mudar de idéia" e os versos vai fazer sentido. Se você está pensando "dos pecados" arrepender-se depois de ver a mensagem do evangelho todo turnos de aceitar o dom gratuito de Deus para alguma coisa você tem que fazer, como condição de salvação.

Em 2 Coríntios 7, o metanoeo palavra é usada no versículo 9 e 10. Leia o versículo 10 cuidadosamente. "Para Godly arrependimento opera sorry (metanoeo uma mudança de mente) para a salvação" ...

Note-se que "Godly sorry" não é arrependimento, mas sim que trabalha para o arrependimento. Em outras palavras uma pessoa pode ficar triste de seus caminhos de pecado e depois se arrepender (mudar de idéia a respeito de Cristo.) Jesus Cristo é sempre o objeto da salvação não se afastando, abstendo-se, parar ou o que quer do pecado. Em Marcos 1:15 Jesus disse falando aos descrentes na Galiléia "Arrependei-vos (metanoeo mudar sua mente) e crer no Evangelho." Diz-nos aqui o que estamos a mudar de opinião. O Evangelho não, os nossos pecados. Ele estava falando para os incrédulos que não acreditam no evangelho. Estamos condenados por causa da incredulidade não por causa de nossos pecados:

João 3:18 "Quem crê nele não é condenado, mas quem não crer já está condenado porque não crê no nome do Filho único nascido de Deus."

Uma vez que estamos condenados por causa da incredulidade não se segue que devemos sair da nossa mente incrédula e não os nossos pecados? Não estamos condenados por causa do pecado. Pecados foram perdoados de uma vez por todas, o sacrifício de Cristo (2 Cor 5:19, Hebreus 10, 1 John2:. 2). Mudando sua mente a respeito de Cristo é arrependimento o que levará à salvação.

Em Mateus 3:02 João estava pregando para os incrédulos no deserto da Judéia e disse: "Arrependei-vos:. Para o reino dos Céus está próximo" Se significa Arrependei-vos abandonar seu pecado ou sentir pena por seus pecados John foi negligente na sua pregação porque ele deixou de mencionar Jesus Cristo e da fé. Sabemos que a partir do versículo acima (João 3:1 que João ensina que a salvação é acreditar e não acreditar que é a condenação. Assim, podemos concluir que João estava dizendo ao povo da Judéia para mudar sua mente incrédula e crêem em Cristo, assim, estabelecer seu significado de arrependendo. Nós já vimos que metanoeo não indica o pecado eo pecado não é encontrado em qualquer lugar desta passagem.

Arrependimento é o ato de mudar de idéia sobre alguma coisa. Não necessariamente pecado ou não necessariamente qualquer coisa. Então, como é que sabemos o que mudar nossa mente sobre? O que mudar a nossa mente sobre é determinada pelo sujeito da passagem. Por exemplo: Nós encontramos no versículo seguinte (Mateus 3:3) que o assunto é o Senhor. "Preparai o caminho do Senhor" Em outras palavras John estava dizendo mudar sua mente incrédula, porque o Reino dos Céus está chegando e estar preparado para o Senhor. John estava pregando o evangelho e não sobre o pecado. Então, o assunto é o Senhor e não o pecado.

Sempre que metamellamai (emoções mudança) é traduzida arrepender é simplesmente dizer-nos que alguém ficasse triste de algo que ele tinha feito. Judas tornou-se triste por trair Jesus em Mateus 27:3 na medida em que ele se enforcou. Isso não significa que seremos salvos se sentir pena pelos nossos pecados.

"Então Judas, que o traíra, vendo que ele foi condenado, arrependeu-se (metaamellamai, emoções alteradas) e trouxe novamente (devolvido) as trinta moedas de prata aos sumos sacerdotes e anciãos, dizendo: Pequei, que Eu tenho traído sangue inocente. E eles disseram, o que é isso para nós? Isso é contigo. (Que é o seu próprio negócio.)

Judas nunca foi salvo (Atos 05:37), embora ele se arrependeu de seu pecado e confessou o seu pecado. Judas era simplesmente triste por ter sido responsável pelo envio de um homem inocente à morte.

Quando alguém tenta adicionar "arrepender-se do pecado" emocionalismo ou o dom gratuito de Deus, ele está dizendo que o que Jesus Cristo fez por nós não é suficiente. Nós não podemos fazer nada sobre o nosso pecado. É por isso que Jesus Cristo teve que morrer na cruz como um substituto para nós;

"O salário do pecado é a morte, mas o dom gratuito de Deus é a vida eterna em Cristo Jesus nosso Senhor." (Romanos 6:23)

Arrepender-se dos pecados é uma obra humana, como está se tornando emocional. Obras não vai nos salvar porque o pagamento pelo pecado é (espiritual) a morte. Obras não são a morte espiritual, portanto, não é a salvação.

Se tudo que você tem feito é se arrepender dos seus pecados que não são salvos. A salvação vem pela fé em Cristo. Crer é um ato não-meritório e não exige nada de nós, exceto uma mudança de mente.

"E por ele todos os que crêem são justificados de todas as coisas, de que não pudestes ser justificados pela lei de Moisés" (Atos 13:39)

"Dificilmente um homem justo, alguém morreria: Ainda porventura para um homem bom alguém ouse morrer. Mas Deus prova o seu amor para conosco, em que, quando éramos ainda pecadores, Cristo morreu (como substituto) para nós. Muito mais agora, sendo justificados pelo seu sangue (morte sacrificial) seremos salvos da ira por meio dele. (Romanos 5:7-9)

"Que se tu confessar com a tua boca o Senhor Jesus, e creres no teu coração que Deus o ressuscitou dentre os ás, mortos, será salvo. Porque com o coração se crê para justiça e com a boca se faz confissão para a salvação. (Romanos 10:9-10).

Eu não sou contra a igreja, creio que a igreja é a noiva de Cristo, creio que a igreja não é o edifício também.
Eu acredito que nós somos a igreja, e eu acredito que precisamos se unir em comunhão crescer e viver como família, não importa a sua denominação é um Deus único Espírito, e Ele está vivo em nós,e não pode ser posto em uma caixa, mas para ir para fora da caixa .Quero dizer nao somente onde estamos no domingo mas mover 24 horas em qualquer lugar.
Bem, quando você sai da caixa, o primeiro problema que encontro, (estou falando aqui onde moro nos EUA).
São pessoas feridas pelo sistema de religião e criam paredes de bloqueio, e então nao querem receber o que nós "cristãos" temos para compartilhar boas novas, por quê? Talvez porque em alguns anos estivemos falo Cristoes, empurrando a religião sem conhecer o nosso Deus que e Amor. Bom,como podemos fazer sendo embaixadores de Cristo na terra, representando Céu aqui,e ser efetivo em reverter isso?
É isso que eu estou procurando, não ser a pessoa religiosa trazendo condenacao,ser imagem do meu Rei e andar Nele, sim, eu estou no caminho eu não ando na completa plenitude dele ainda , mas estou no caminho de gloria em gloria e Ele não me deixou sem nada para me equipar para isto o quanto eu ja agarrei e de gloria em gloria.
Quem precisa mudar? Eu, como? Olhando para Ele Cristo é a imagem do Deus incarnado e manifestar sobre Ele ler Colossenses e Romanos 8
Ele é o perfeito o Alfa eo Omega, e Ele vive em nós, cristãos pelo Espírito Santo também não pode lutar apenas dentro das paredes, mas no entanto, ir, porque Ele está vivo dentro de nós e nunca nos deixa ou abandona Hebrews 13.
Eu escrevi falando sobre a igreja versos atrás porque alguns andam dizendo só porque eu faço igreja em casa grupos e eu vou para 2 ou 3 congregações diferentes. Pensam que eu estou lutando contra a igreja, para estas pessoas eu gostaria de dizer e faze las saber que eu amo a igreja e nós somos a igreja. O que eu simplesmente não quero e limitar o que Deus está fazendo, eu o ouco e estou sendo conduzido pelo Seu Espírito que estou fazendo é bíblico e é por Ele em mim João 15. Eu não concordo com o que algumas igrejas ensinam e nao prego divisao, é verdade o que estou falando, porque não ensinam a palavra de Deus,por isto nao tenho e nao quero ter eu comunhão nestes lugares . Eu não estou julgando eles , estou eu a julgar o que eles ensinam, é bíblico. Hebreus 13 nao quer dizer que sou melhor que ninguem tambem posso cometer erros. Nossa identidade está só em Cristo e não nas nossas obras.Se
nós somos bem sucedidos ou falhamos,nós permanecemos na justiça de
Deus em Cristo.quer dizer que as escrituras e quem prevalece.se nos temos ela porque andar fora ?
E isto não vem alterar o meu amor por eles continuo amando eles sao irmaos em Cristo , em seguida, eu oro para eles para que possam ver a plenitude de Deus em Cristo e entender que eles são aqueles que seria suposto manifestar isto aqui com o amor divino. Cristo em vós é a esperança da Glória !!!!!

This is brother Paul Currie note, i like that actually i had desire to write some like this today, and He did with out know what i have in my heart i really like that is reason i repost on my blog please take your time i going translate latter to Portuguese


I have now met several good Christian folk, mostly younger, some students, who have been hurt, and to some degree had been confused about "HOW" they ended up being labelled as dishnouring, divisive or rebellious. They are mostly the listeners or direct subjects of a few ministries that have caught on to a man-made docrine that has become popular, has reached New Zealand and and many other parts of the world, and does more damage to younger Christians by the words or actions it deliberately does not mention during the delivery of it's voiced topics, the craft of insinuation via silent messaging.



What did dishonour look like for Jesus in his day?



Jesus spoke very clearly on the occasion where he was being dishonoured. There was a people group primarily made up of the Pharisees who attempted to trap him with their crafty words. Jesus mention of dishonour is recorded in John 8:49 “I am not possessed by a demon, said Jesus, but I honour my Father and you dishonour me”.



Are such things really happening in churches today?



What degree of dishonour, abuse and carnality is actually occurring in churches today? It is certainly not happening in mine. What about yours? It must be happening somewhere, right?



If so, wherever it is ocurring, I would ask if the leadership of that place is following Matthew 18:15-17. I would also ask if there is an effective discipleship course that teaches newly born’s biblical precepts of conduct. I would also ask if there is a culture in place that promotes 'leading by example', and in that, being effective in promoting the ways of love and respect by offering it to the body in the first place.



If not, what are these ‘other allegedly bad’ behaviours which necessitate some elders of some churches to aggressively and repetitively deliver doctrines in blanket form from a pulpit about honouring, and by doing so, causing many to fear that they are surrounded by or personally involved with dishonouring? The principle of building a culture of honour sounds great, but the underlying methods and many of its applications as seen at large are not being administered in love at all, but with an unspoken accusation that such offence exists.



But wherever such offensive does exist, in the verse I pointed out above Jesus himself set out clear instructions for those who have genuine cases of sin:



Matthew 18:15-17 If your brother sins against you, go and show him his fault, just between the two of you. If he listens to you, you have won your brother over. But if he will not listen, take one or two others along, so that 'every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.' If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church; and if he refuses to listen even to the church, treat him as you would a pagan or a tax collector.



Clearly, if any person in the church believes his brother has sinned against him, by way of alleged dishonour, or by any other way, the above is to be followed.



If Jesus own teaching is not being followed to address offence, and an alternative teaching has arisen to replace it, it is the doctrine of a man. And what disposition or alleged behaviour between members of Christ’s Body does such a man's doctrine seek to control or mediate that Jesus' own teaching didn't sufficiently cover?





So what exactly are these ‘other allegedly sinful’ actions that pastors of today label as ‘dishonourable’? First let's have a brief look at what honour is not.



Honour does NOT mean ‘submission’ to a church elder because of his title, his position, the debt he holds against you, or his knowledge of your past sin.



Honour is NOT ‘obedience’ to what a man says on the basis that others fear to disobey him.



Honour is NOT ‘compromising the truth’ you know exists in the word to agree with the preacher just because others like whatever he is saying.



Honour is NOT allowing man-made doctrines or distortions of the word of God to go unquestioned for the sake of making its cultivators feel honoured or safe.



Honour is NOT ‘sitting quietly’ when you know that something is being taught that is against or does not line up with what Jesus taught and did.



Honour is NOT deliberately ‘failing to defend’ lies or untruths or misleading fabrications just because your pastor or favourite preacher supports them.







Later we will look at what honour is. But first, let’s put some questions up for your own thinking.



Is the practice of confronting an error being described as dishonourable divisive or or rebellious?



Is the practice of confronting mindsets and traditions that keep people in bondage being described as dishonourable divisive or rebellious?



Is the practice of asking questions when you believe that something is being taught that does not line up with what Jesus taught being described as dishonourable divisive or rebellious?



If you say yes to any of these statements, then I believe these pastors are teaching more on an “honour and obey this institution without questioning it’s doctrine” basis.





The repetitive ‘honour and obey’ talk established behavioural precepts reserved primarily for describing relational dynamics for a child toward its parent.



It originated from God through the prophets of old, was confirmed by Jesus' own teaching in his day, and referred to again by the writings of the apostles of his time.



Exodus 20:12 Honour your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.



Deuteronomy 5:16 Honour your father and your mother, as the LORD your God has commanded you, so that you may live long and that it may go well with you in the land the LORD your God is giving you.



Matthew 19:19 honour your father and mother,' and 'love your neighbour as yourself.'



Ephesians 6:2 Honour your father and mother— which is the first commandment with a promise—





All other instructions on how to conduct yourself in relationships refer primarily to the values of respect and love, eg Relationship dynamics brother to brother



Jesus never walked around saying “fear me” or “fear one another” or “honour me”. He didn’t need to. Conversely, he said in John 13:34 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another”.



1 Peter 2:17 Show proper respect to everyone: Love the brotherhood of believers, fear God, honour the king.



Philippians 2:28-30 Therefore I am all the more eager to send him, so that when you see him again you may be glad and I may have less anxiety. Welcome him in the Lord with great joy, and honour men like him, because he almost died for the work of Christ, risking his life to make up for the help you could not give me.



Romans 13:7 Give everyone what you owe him: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honour, then honour.



Romans 13:8 Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for he who loves his fellow-man has fulfilled the law.



Romans 12:10 Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honour one another above yourselves





Relationship dynamics toward elders



1 Timothy 5:17 The elders who direct the affairs of the church well are worthy of double honour, especially those whose work is preaching and teaching.



1 Peter 2:17 Show proper respect to everyone: Love the brotherhood of believers, fear God, honour the king.



Isaiah 26:13 O LORD, our God, other lords besides you have ruled over us, but your name alone do we honour. (It is NOT for a pastor or elder that we should esteem with the honour we reserve for the Lord)



Other relationship dynamics are also made clear in 1 Timothy 5.





Now let’s look for a moment at the basic relationship between a teacher and a student, and then come back to the honour theme from a scriptural perspective.



It is a student’s place to ask questions; it is a teachers role to answer them. A student will usually ask a question to get more clarification on a matter of teaching that he has not grasped, desires to learn more about, has been confused by, or notices that the teachers comments conflict with the information written in the student handbook he's holding.



The relationship of a student and his teacher is completely the same for a disciple and his teacher (or an apostle / prophet / evangelist or pastor of God who teaches)



Disciples are not accusers, they are students, and they ask questions so they can learn from their teachers. Any leader of any church institution who resists or refuses to answer a disciple's questions about doctrine is not fit to be called an apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor or teacher, and are exposing themselves to be in error by labelling their flock as divisive, rebels or accusers.



Coming under, or agreeing with a man made doctrine of honour that is being used as a mechanism to manipulate a group of students into feeling guilty for their act of presenting a question to ‘any given teaching’ will never justify any fear-mongering assertion from any leadership member of any church institution whatsoever claiming dishonour comes in the form of questioning doctrine. If it is deemed dishonourable or divisive to raise questions, cultish behaviour has most certainly given birth.



What might drive a person to act defensively and propogate doctrines which impute error to anyone who questions their beliefs?



For any church elder to go down this path where it has not first been established that there truly exists an outward rebellious carnal behaviour, it is quite likely that he or she either feels inadequate to give answer, unable to understand what they actually just preached, is in fear that his doctrine may just be a bunch of beliefs handed down over the years, or was a bunch of law-based nonsense aimed at controlling finance or loyalty, or perhaps feels offended to be questioned because of his high position, or believes that he lacks the honour he deserves, and none of those positions should justify engaging a weapon of man-made doctrine against disciples to force them to give it to him. If from out of his character were flowing Godly precepts, God himself will assure this man get the honour his actions deserve.





God promises to take care of making sure He himself will honour us if we manifest mature and Godly precepts



John 12:26 Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honour the one who serves me.



Psalm 91:15 He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honour him.



Psalm 84:11 For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favour and honour; no good thing does he withholdfrom those whose walk is blameless.



Proverbs 13:18 He who ignores discipline comes to poverty and shame, but whoever heeds correction is honoured.



Proverbs 29:23 A man's pride brings him low, but a man of lowly spirit gains honour.



Proverbs 15:33 The fear of the LORD teaches a man wisdom, and humility comes before honour.



Proverbs 18:12 Before his downfall a man's heart is proud, but humility comes before honour.



Therefore, unless we are in pride, walking with a low self-esteem, or feel we lack the honour we believe we should expect, we do not ever have a need or directive from God to demand it from man, milk it out of man, or craft a doctrine to force it out of men by falsely accusing them of acting dishonourably toward us.



Moreover, is it not clear from Proverbs 15:33 and 18:12 that anyone professing to serve the Lord should be operating firstly in humility, which the Lord himself says comes BEFORE honour?





He actually warns us that we should NOT seek it for ourselves:



Matthew 6:2 So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honoured by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full.



Proverbs 25:27 It is not good to eat too much honey, nor is it honourable to seek one's own honour.



Habakkuk 1:7 They are a feared and dreaded people; they are a law to themselves and promote their own honour.



John 8:54 Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God:



John 7:18 He who speaks on his own does so to gain honour for himself, but he who works for the honour of the one who sent him is a man of truth; there is nothing false about him.





Are there any consequences for falsely accusing disciples of being divisive or rebellious for asking questions?



If the absence of obedience to conduct church affairs the way Jesus taught in Matthew 18:15-17 leads a pastor down a path of repeatedly addressing an entire congregation with honor and obey talk, without naming an offender, or taking all the other steps Jesus taught, does that person stand at risk of guilt for laying out a blanket accusation against the entire body of Christ present on that day?





Can we not just love one another, which in itself is one of the most comprehensive and all-encompassing commands of our Lord. Out of it will come respect where earned, care, generosity, humility then honor, esteem, gratefulness, gentleness, and every other fruit of love

I have now met several good Christian folk, mostly younger, some students, who have been hurt, and to some degree had been confused about "HOW" they ended up being labelled as dishnouring, divisive or rebellious. They are mostly the listeners or direct subjects of a few ministries that have caught on to a man-made doctrine that has become popular, has reached New Zealand and and many other parts of the world, and does more damage to younger Christians by the words or actions it deliberately does not mention during the delivery of it's voiced topics, the craft of insinuation via silent messaging.



What did dishonor look like for Jesus in his day?



Jesus spoke very clearly on the occasion where he was being dishonored. There was a people group primarily made up of the Pharisees who attempted to trap him with their crafty words. Jesus mention of dishonor is recorded in John 8:49 “I am not possessed by a demon, said Jesus, but I honor my Father and you dishonor me”.



Are such things really happening in churches today?



What degree of dishonor, abuse and carnality is actually occurring in churches today? It is certainly not happening in mine. What about yours? It must be happening somewhere, right?



If so, wherever it is occurring, I would ask if the leadership of that place is following Matthew 18:15-17. I would also ask if there is an effective discipleship course that teaches newly born’s biblical precepts of conduct. I would also ask if there is a culture in place that promotes 'leading by example', and in that, being effective in promoting the ways of love and respect by offering it to the body in the first place.



If not, what are these ‘other allegedly bad’ behaviors which necessitate some elders of some churches to aggressively and repetitively deliver doctrines in blanket form from a pulpit about honoring, and by doing so, causing many to fear that they are surrounded by or personally involved with dishonoring? The principle of building a culture of honor sounds great, but the underlying methods and many of its applications as seen at large are not being administered in love at all, but with an unspoken accusation that such offense exists.



But wherever such offensive does exist, in the verse I pointed out above Jesus himself set out clear instructions for those who have genuine cases of sin:



Matthew 18:15-17 If your brother sins against you, go and show him his fault, just between the two of you. If he listens to you, you have won your brother over. But if he will not listen, take one or two others along, so that 'every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.' If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church; and if he refuses to listen even to the church, treat him as you would a pagan or a tax collector.



Clearly, if any person in the church believes his brother has sinned against him, by way of alleged dishonor, or by any other way, the above is to be followed.



If Jesus own teaching is not being followed to address offense, and an alternative teaching has arisen to replace it, it is the doctrine of a man. And what disposition or alleged behavior between members of Christ’s Body does such a man's doctrine seek to control or mediate that Jesus' own teaching didn't sufficiently cover?





So what exactly are these ‘other allegedly sinful’ actions that pastors of today label as ‘dishonorable’? First let's have a brief look at what honor is not.



Honor does NOT mean ‘submission’ to a church elder because of his title, his position, the debt he holds against you, or his knowledge of your past sin.



Honor is NOT ‘obedience’ to what a man says on the basis that others fear to disobey him.



Honor is NOT ‘compromising the truth’ you know exists in the word to agree with the preacher just because others like whatever he is saying.



Honor is NOT allowing man-made doctrines or distortions of the word of God to go unquestioned for the sake of making its cultivators feel honored or safe.



Honor is NOT ‘sitting quietly’ when you know that something is being taught that is against or does not line up with what Jesus taught and did.



Honor is NOT deliberately ‘failing to defend’ lies or untruths or misleading fabrications just because your pastor or favorite preacher supports them.







Later we will look at what honor is. But first, let’s put some questions up for your own thinking.



Is the practice of confronting an error being described as dishonorable divisive or or rebellious?



Is the practice of confronting mindsets and traditions that keep people in bondage being described as dishonorable divisive or rebellious?



Is the practice of asking questions when you believe that something is being taught that does not line up with what Jesus taught being described as dishonorable divisive or rebellious?



If you say yes to any of these statements, then I believe these pastors are teaching more on an “honor and obey this institution without questioning it’s doctrine” basis.





The repetitive ‘honor and obey’ talk established behavioral precepts reserved primarily for describing relational dynamics for a child toward its parent.



It originated from God through the prophets of old, was confirmed by Jesus' own teaching in his day, and referred to again by the writings of the apostles of his time.



Exodus 20:12 Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.



Deuteronomy 5:16 Honor your father and your mother, as the LORD your God has commanded you, so that you may live long and that it may go well with you in the land the LORD your God is giving you.



Matthew 19:19 honor your father and mother,' and 'love your neighbor as yourself.'



Ephesians 6:2 Honor your father and mother— which is the first commandment with a promise—





All other instructions on how to conduct yourself in relationships refer primarily to the values of respect and love, eg Relationship dynamics brother to brother



Jesus never walked around saying “fear me” or “fear one another” or “honor me”. He didn’t need to. Conversely, he said in John 13:34 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another”.



1 Peter 2:17 Show proper respect to everyone: Love the brotherhood of believers, fear God, honor the king.
