Blogging the truth about the New Kadampa Tradition

The Lord often uses harsh words or striking images to create impact, perhaps like a figure of speech makes an impact in literature. Mature prophets do not assume that stark imagery is literally true, but nor do they discount that it may be. The prophet’s task is to discern the truth being conveyed, and then to communicate that truth as accurately and lovingly as possible. This communication may take a number of forms and will not always be accepted or understood. A wise prophet will seek the Lord for wisdom concerning the details, timing and wording for each situation. He or she may also seek counsel of trusted advisors or more seasoned prophets. This however, provides no guarantee that the message or the prophet will not be criticized or disregarded.

These customs, rituals, practices are inventions and traditions of men -- alone, apart from God.

9 And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition. We see that Jesus and His early disciples warned strongly against any tradition or law that caused any transgression or nullification of God's laws.

Double Portion Inheritance - Truth or Tradition?

In regard to prophets in the Church, the book of Acts confirms what Ephesians and Corinthians state doctrinally, that the Lord selects and specifically calls some men and women to be prophets. Prophets were important in the establishment of the church at Antioch, the first church recorded that was composed of both Jews and Gentiles (Acts 11:27). It was the prophet Agabus who foretold that there would be a severe famine in the Roman world during the reign of Claudius Caesar (Acts 11:28; this famine is documented in secular Roman history). Prophets were vital in getting the revelation from the Lord to set apart Paul and Barnabas and send them on their first missionary journey (Acts 13:1-4). The prophets Judas and Silas are specifically mentioned as exhorting and confirming the disciples in Antioch (Acts 15:32-KJV). It was Agabus the prophet who so graphically portrayed what would happen to Paul in Jerusalem (Acts 21:10 and 11). In fact, the only foretelling in Acts is given either by prophets or by the apostles Peter and Paul. [1]

In the Tyndale Commentary on this verse, Leon Morris says, "that what Paul is referring to is a 'catch' cry familiar to Paul and his readers, directing attention to the need for conformity to Scripture.
