If rajk999 can't correctly determine whether or not I consider the passages from Matthew 5 and 6 to be part of the gospel preached by Jesus during his ministry, I'll agree to admit that I haven't been clear about that
However, if rajk999 can correctly determine it, then you'll agree to admit that you ...[text shortened]... cusations / insinuations in order to side-step actually addressing my assertion.
Are you in?
I think you're complicating the matter much.
Hey ToO, Umm, is that the gospel preached by Jesus too ?
What do you discern is the difference between what Jesus is saying in the two passages?
Is that question an admition then that it is the same gospel preached by Jesus ?
Answer that first, how about ?
Yea, Nada ?
At this point you could simply have said -
"YES same gospel, now what is the difference to you in the two passages?"
Or you could have said that, "NO, they were not the same. What is the difference?"
I could ASSUME that you think Matthew 5 and 6
are the same gospel.
I don't see why you're shy to admit it.
I take it that your tone is "Sonship, OF COURSE they are the same."
Then again, I don't see what the problem was in simply answering me before posing a question to me.
Then we have this from you.
First you created a straw man as a way of side-stepping my assertion.
? ? ?
You lost me here. Comes off like wishful thinking to me.
One part of that Gospel says essentially "Don't show off".
Another part of the Gospel says essentially "Let your good works be seen that the Father may be glorified, Don't hide them."
I ask "Same Gospel ?"
There is not much need to belabor this - there is a time for everything.
You do the right thing at the right time with the right motive in the right way.
Then you claimed that my calling you out for creating a straw man was a red herring and have been hurling other accusations along the same lines.
Sounds like another thread. Now it gets complicated more.
In THIS HERE thread I simply asked at your scolding me with Matthew 6
IF Matthew 5
was ALSO that precious gospel preached by Jesus.
I guess you really didn't want to say so.
So you turn to ie. "What do you think is the difference?"
"What do you think is the difference?" [paraphrased] is not a direct answer to my question.
This stuff ?
To top it off, now you're pretending that you have no idea whether or not I consider the passage you cited from Matthew 5 as being a part of the gospel preached by Jesus during his ministry?
So you're not only continuing to side-step actually addressing my assertion, but you've taken to hurling all manner of inane accusations / insinuations to do it.
Take a deep breath and stop embarrassing yourself.
Comes off as more wishful thinking to me.
Now I have to see a kid to the bus stop and take my morning walk.
