Matt.7.24 - "Anyone who listens to my teaching and obeys me is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock.

Matt.7.26 - But anyone who hears my teaching and ignores it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand.

Notice there that Jesus Christ said that of those who obey Him, and not of those who obey His apostles or their pastors and Mogs and their church doctrines. undecided

It's right to obey His apostles in the scripture like Paul, Peter, etc. But one must be careful with the ones we have around: too many small and Great Wolves in sheep's clothing.

Anyway, may we get grace to obey Jesus according to the new testament: the narrow way which is not easy to find.

Again , Jesus Christ never said obey my apostles or Paul. Instead His instructions to you were that you obey His teachings and His commandments to you.. Matthew 7 vs 24 - 29. :-
He made this fervently clear in all of His teachings - John 15 vs 14 that it is what He says that you should do. undecided

Friend, you may stop quoting me if you want to argue: you sound argumentative. Not that I know all but I've stopped arguing long time ago. It doesn't help.

Paul, Peter, prophets of old and the present are representatives of Jesus, they speak God's word (not their own) to be obeyed by others who want to please God.

Jesus said:

Luke.10.16 - He who HEARS you hears Me, he who Rejects you rejects Me, and he who rejects Me rejects Him who sent Me."

And Paul said:

2Thess.3.14 - And if anyone DOES NOT OBEY OUR (***we apostles) word in this epistle, note that person and DO NOT keep company with him, that he may be ashamed.

Phil.2.12 - Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have ALWAYS OBEYED, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.

Like Jesus, Paul even said Follow Me (as I follow Christ).

1Cor.4.16 - Wherefore I beseech you, be ye followers of me.

1Cor.11.1 - Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.

And:

Heb.13.7 - Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and IMITATE their faith.

If we are truly of Jesus, we should be a able to say ALL that TOO. I stopped Following many great, well-known Pastors and preachers because I couldn't see them Following the example, that Example of Paul. They might have great gifts, Bible knowledge and all, but when it comes to their attitudes to MONEY AND POPULARITY, they're not like Jesus and Men like Paul. I know few great ones like that online, though: Zac Poonen, bro Gbile Akanni, late Jan boshoof, warningthepeople (youtube), etc.

No problem if you disagree. I've tried to use scriptures for my own convictions. Be free to believe what you want. I don't argue.

Thanks.

Okay... I see we can't possibly understand ourselves as you are not seeing what I've been trying to show you from scriptures, even on the thread about Tithing which appears we have similar Opinion too.

Anyway, thanks for talking to me.

Goodbye.

Unlearn the lies you have ignorantly gobbled up from listening to the doctrines and traditions of men. Open your heart and mind to God's Truth anew and this by hearing the Word of God, Jesus Christ, as He spoke even 2000 years ago. undecided
