You’ve avoided my question
Re: Give to Caesar what belongs to him
“What happened to the lauded “sanctuary” my man?”
And what happened to a single question I asked and you couldn’t answered?
I’ve never avoided answering your questions and one single question I asked and you avoid it. Why? Because you were just saying anything and everything for argument sake but not for enlightenment.
“They themselves were living off donations but they did not accumulate any wealth but they gave what they can to the destitute.”
Didn’t I tell you that Jesus sent out his disciples to preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God and instructed them not to take anything with them? But of cause you don’t remember because you are too much into your argument rather than the gospel.
Psalm 96:6: Honour and majesty are before him: strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.
Psalm 134:2: Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless the Lord.
“I did some research (google) and the meaning of “sanctuary” that came up......”refuge or safety from pursuit, persecution, or other danger”
The Bible is spiritually discerned, it cannot be interpreted by google or anyone else unless God Spirit guides them.
But your google search came up with a good meaning of sanctuary.
In our fear and reverence of God we highly honour him.
So anyone that we may go after even the arm of the law when that souls enter the sanctuary of the Lord then that is the end of being pursuit, and that is where the soul that is being pursuit after or in danger find safety and refuge.
That’s the symbol of his presence. and if the destitute don’t run to the sanctuary then they will not find refuge.
And that my man is the answer to your question.
But like I said before, you only asked question so you can correct with what you think is right. because you can never see the spirit in why people do things except to prove your argument.
You yourself said that God had his dwelling in the two temples built by the Jews that were destroyed. But I said God dwells in the temple made without hands.
But you still argued about buildings. All because you are misinterpreting the Bible and like to argue in error.
Now again are you going to answer this question.
“To say that God lives in a Christian church building is not something that should be taken seriously”
And where have you read that? I hope you read that somewhere so you won’t turn out to be another CNN.
