John 8:31-32 “Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
There is a Law continually at work. The Law is a type of “Law of the Universe”. This Law is hidden the word, including the words of the Bible, for us to find. If we understand this Law we begin the process of freedom; freedom from the false laws. When we truly understand this Law, there is no way we will not believe it because it becomes truth to us, and faith in that which is understood will set you free.
Mark 4:11 “And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: ...

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 “What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.”
1Corinthians 7:23 “Ye are bought with a price; be not ye the servants of men.”
Ephesians 6:6 “Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart;”
These scriptures explain that we may think that we are our own, and therefore serve ourselves and our own ideals, however, it says we are to be servants to God not to men or to ourselves for that matter. We can do the will of our selves ...

The two sides of the heart or the “double mind” is another way the Bible describes “our own two eyes” verses the “eye of God”.

They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.”
The eye of the Lord that guides us, spoken ...

The Bible is full of symbolic representations. It uses the concepts in the physical world to represent something in the spirit. Money, treasure, riches, etc. are no different. The Bible uses these as tangible concepts to represent something much more, something deeper into the spirit.
Romans 11:33 ” O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom andknowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!”
Proverbs 23:23 “Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.”
The tangible concepts of the world are an allegory which represents how our mind operates. The mind is compared to the physical world. The riches or money in the world ...

“Ye are Gods”
Genesis 3:22 KJV - And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:
Because of the consciousness we have gained though our understanding and differentiation between light and dark or good and evil; we are a god or “as” God and can also come to live through the “tree of life”. “God” can be seen as just an entity, force, or power that creates both “good” and “evil”.
Isaiah 41:23 “Shew the things that are to come hereafter, that we may know that ye [are] gods: yea, do good, or do evil, that we may be dismayed,...

The scriptures speak of two different types of wisdom; the wisdom of this world and wisdom of God.
1 Corinthians 1:17-24 “For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect. For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased ...

The scriptures give us instructions on how we should think. And if we believe that the scriptures give us good instructions for life, there must a purpose and reason for thinking as instructed.
Philippians 4:8 “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”
The word “think” here is the Greek word logizomai which can also means to calculate or figure or weigh the reasons. Philippians 4 tells us how to think, that we...

Should Women be Silent in Church? September 4, 2009 document REVISED
The following four scripture references talk about women, their relationship, and their required actions towards the church and their husbands.

Proverbs 18:21 “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.”
The tongue has much power.
But what does the tongue have to do with salvation, where salvation is yet to be defined?
Romans 2:12-15 “For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law; (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified. For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also ...
