    Lecrae does preach Repentance but the part about being spiritual is why
    so many people today don’t follow the Truth! It doesn’t matter how “spiritual”
    people are if they aren’t Biblical they are still lost/headed for hell. Preachers
    need to preach the whole Truth not just part. I meet person after person that
    claims to be Christian then when I dig just a little deeper I find out that their
    lifestyle is no different from a non-Christian. 1 Corinthians 5 and 6 the whole
    chapters and also Luke 13 the whole chapter are what the body of Christ
    needs right now. Luke 13 says that we must have good fruit and that fruit is
    fruit of Repentance not good works because many non-believers do good
    works so we must Repent/have good fruit! Premarital sex,getting drunk,pride,
    gossip,sharp tongues/being mean,gambling,coveting/jealousy,greed are all
    in need of being confronted yet hardly ever get talked about. The wine that
    Jesus made was new wine/diluted/from the fruit of the vine plus the Bible
    also says don’t get drunk on strong wine so people who still get drunk with
    wine are also wrong! All is bad/needs confronted and we all must Repent!

    Jesus is the son of God (Matthew 3:17) and the King of God’s Kingdom (Isaiah 11:1-5).

    The Creator and Almighty God is Jehovah, the Heavenly Father of Jesus as well as of mankind (Matthew 6:9-13; Matthew 23:9; 1 Timothy 2:5; Psalm 83:18).

    It appears that his lyrics cited above erroneously identify Jesus as God and the Creator.

    Fran-In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the
    Word was God! Jesus was not created/is part of the Trinity! You need to
    do some more research plus hell is real and the Bible says it’s real where
    there is weeping and gnashing of teeth. The rich man died and he was in
    agony in hell so hell is very real! When you deny the Trinity and the reality
    of hell you seperate yourself from Biblical Christianity/create a false god/idol
    to suit yourself which is idolatry and no idolater will inherit the kingdom of
    heaven! You can’t take out parts of the Bible just because you don’t agree.

    Karla,

    I have provided you with a plethora of scriptures that disprove the trinity doctrine, including Luke 22:43,44 (Jesus praying to God for strength, not to himself); Matthew 6:8-23 (the Lord’s Prayer to our Heavenly Father, not Jesus); 1 Timothy 2:5 (there is only one true God and one mediator between men and God, Jesus); Mark 13:32 (concerning the end of this era, no one knows, not the angels or the son of God, Jesus, but only the Father); 1Corinthians 11:3 (the head of the Christ is God); Psalms 83:18 (the Most High over all the earth is Jehovah God, not Jesus, who is God’s son)

    Additionally, Colossians 1:13-16 says:

    “Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear SON; (verse 13)

    “In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins; (verse 14)

    “Who is the a IMAGE of the invisible God, the FIRSTBORN of EVERY CREATURE.”

    The dictionary gives us a marvelous definition of “image” as follows:

    “An imitation or representation of a person or thing, drawn, painted, photographed, etc; a type, typical example or symbol.” Webster’s New World College Dictionary, 4th Edition.

    Evidently, Jesus as the son of God, reflects or mirrors the personality of the only true God, his Father, Jehovah. That was why Jesus could say: “…he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, show us the Father?” (John 14:9)

    To confirm that statement, John 1:18 says: “No man hath seen God at any time; the only-begotten SON, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.”

    Are you then denying the scriptures cited at Colossians 1:13-16, including stating that Jesus is the “first-born of EVERY creature”?

    Many persons saw the son of God while he was on earth, healing all types of sickness and disease, even resurrecting the dead like Lazarus (John 11:1-45).

    Jesus himself died as a ransom sacrifice for all sinful mankind, but who resurrected him from the dead?

    Acts 2:32 says: “This Jesus hath GOD raised up, whereof we are all witnesses.”

    It is impossible for Almighty God to die or lie (tell an untruth). However, the son of God did die to fulfill his Father’s will and never his own.

    As Jesus said at John 4:34: “Jesus saith to them, ‘My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish HIS work.”

    My next post to you, Karla, will be about the parable of the rich man and Lazarus found at Luke 16:19-31, discussing 2 different classes of people, the religious leaders of Jesus’ day, as well as the common people in his day.

    Fran-1 Colossians 19 talks about for by Him all things were created
    and also the fullness of God dwelled in Him so you and your whole
    faith need to look up the meaning of preeminence! The Trinity is
    real and you can deny it all you want but the word first born doesn’t
    always pertain to the first born. Other passages in the Bible mention
    first born talking about people that were not the first born of/in their
    family so once again you need to do some more research. Jesus is
    not a created being and hell is real. The Bible is vey clear that hell
    is real. The Trinity can get confusing but I don’t know how you can
    confuse what the Bible says about hell. It says that it would have
    been better if Judas was never born! Why does it say that? It says
    that because hell is real so when the wicked are raised from the
    dead for the Great White Throne judgment they are not sleeping
    but they were in hell which is the holding place for the lake of fire.
    1 Colossians also says He is the image of God and He is before
    all things and in Him all things hold together putting Him equal!
    You have to understand there are different parts of the Trinity
    but they are one in the same just like the Bible says that in the
    beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the
    Word was God! Who is the Word? Jesus is! Bible then says
    the Word became flesh then dwealt among us so once again
    that proves that Jesus was not created but there from the start!

  • Fran

    Karla,

    How can they be one and the same if Jesus died and Jesus does not know when the end of this era will come ???

  • Karla

    Fran-We can just agree to disagree but as I said God the Father
    and Jesus,the Holy Spirit are all part of the Godhead/the Trinity
    with all different functions. The Trinity can get confusing but I still
    don’t know how you can confuse what the Bible says about hell
    so at this point now we can just agree to disagree. Do some more
    research and thanks for the feedback. God bless.

  • Karla

    Fran-Colossians 2:9-For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in
    bodily form so that shows Christ is equal to God/part of the Trinity and
    as I said the Godhead has the three different parts which is the Trinity.

    Fran-Jesus also said before Abraham I Am and what did God say
    to Moses? He said I Am! The Bible also says in Revelation that He
    is coming/Jesus is the first and the last/the beginning and the end
    so once again Jesus says He was there at/from the beginning so
    He was/is not a created being! He is part of the Trinity/Godhead!

  • Fran

    Karla,

    Yes, we will continue to disagree. Thankfully, after the great tribulation and the war of Armageddon, when Jehovah God puts an end to all his enemies, then the truth will be evident to all mankind:

    1. That Jehovah is Almighty God and Universal Sovereign.

    2. That Christ Jesus is the son of God, the first direct creation of Jehovah, through whom everything else was created; and is the King of God’s Kingdom or heavenly government.

    3. That the holy spirit is the active force of Jehovah, which He uses to accomplish his purposes.

    Fran-You need to do some more research because first born refers to rank
    not that Christ was born/created.
