๐Ÿ“–๐Ÿ‘‘ The Teachings Of Jesus

In the controversy over โ€œPauline truth,โ€ not a few Fundamentalists have joined Modernists in attempting to exalt โ€œthe teachings of Jesusโ€ (on earth) above the Word of God through Paul. โ€œWhich,โ€ they ask, โ€œshould bear the greater weight with us, the words of Jesus, or the words of Paul?โ€

But do they ask this because they truly desire toย obeyย these โ€œwords of Jesusโ€ and to see them obeyed? No, for they flagrantly disregard and disobey them, from the Sermon on the Mount to the Great Commission.

With regard to the Sermon on the Mount, they do not subject themselves to the law of Moses (Matt. 5:17-19); they do not bring gifts to altars of sacrifice (5:23,24); they do not give freely to all who ask of them (5:42; 10:8,9); they do not refrain from laying up treasures on earth (6:19,25,26); they do not sell what they have and give alms (Lukeย 6:30;ย 12:33).

And while professing obedience to the so-called โ€œGreat Commissionโ€ as โ€œthe Churchโ€™s marching orders,โ€ they do not proclaim faith and baptism for salvation (Markย 16:16); they do notโ€”theyย cannotโ€”perform miraculous signs (Markย 16:17,18); they do not give the Jew first place in their ministry (Luke 24:47; Acts 1:8), and they certainly do not teach others to observe all things that Messiah on earth commanded (Matt. 28:20 cf. 23:1-3).

They set โ€œthe teachings of Jesusโ€ (on earth) over against โ€œthe teachings of Paul,โ€ not because they are determined to obey Jesus, but because they are determined to minimize that which God has โ€œmagnifiedโ€โ€”the authority of Paul as โ€œthe apostle of the Gentilesโ€ (Rom.ย 11:13).

They seek to exalt the teachings of the earthly Jesus above those of Paul because they have closed their ears to the oft-repeated and Spirit-inspired claims of Paul that theย glorifiedย Lord spokeย againย from heaven, to and through him, committing to him โ€œtheย dispensation of the grace of Godโ€ and the program for the day in which we live (Actsย 20:24; 22:6-10,17-21; 26:12-18; Rom.ย 11:13;ย 15:15,16;ย 16:25,26; I Cor.ย 3:10;ย 11:23; 15:3; II Cor.ย 5:16; Gal. 1:1,11,12; 2:7-9; Eph. 3:1-4,8,9; 6:18-20; Phil. 4:9; Col. 1:23-27; I Thes.ย 4:15; II Thes.ย 3:14; I Tim. 2:5-7; II Tim. 2:7-9; Titus 1:2,3, etc.).

They have forgotten the stern rebuke the Galatians received for failing to recognize Paulโ€™s teachings as a message from the risen, exalted Christ (Gal. 1:6-12). They have taken lightly Paulโ€™s words to the Corinthians:

โ€œโ€ฆif I come again I will not spare: since ye seek a proof of Christ speaking in meโ€ฆโ€ (II Cor. 13:2,3).

They have distorted Paulโ€™s inspired admonition as toย his own writings:

โ€œIf any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness; he is proud, knowing nothingโ€ฆfrom such withdraw thyselfโ€ (I Tim. 6:3-5). source

Verse for 12/15/2017

And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. — Luke 1:30-33
