Let those that say they are spiritual confirm that the TRUE Children of the LORD have now thus been armed to face the wicked paradox. The TRUE meaning of adultery, the "judgment of the LORD" in Exodus 21:10, what Paul and Lord Jesus taught on the matter, and even the issue of "ONE WIFE" for elders, bishops, and deacons, are all in absolute Scriptural agreement. No where, including the gospels, epistles, and Book of Revelation, does Scripture demonstrate the wicked, incorrect manmade doctrine that paved the way for the wicked paradox.
As such, the TRUE Children of the LORD are now armed to oppose the Great Deceiver's plot of the wicked paradox. In love and by Scripture, I have given unto those which have an ear to hear the TRUTH with which to be victorious when the Great Deceiver sends his devils to put forth the wicked paradox, the diabolical culmination of the Great Deceiver's evil plot to entrap the Christians who SAY that they believe ALL of Scripture.
What? Do some still question the TRUTH of this matter? I follow my Lord and Saviour's example in John 8:43-47 and thus repeat His superior words (to any I might say by myself):
"Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the TRUTH, because there is no TRUTH in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
"And because I tell you the TRUTH, ye believe me not.
"Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the TRUTH, why do ye not believe me?
"He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because YE ARE NOT OF GOD."
And again, would some still accuse me of evil? Would they think that I have a devil and am mad? Again, in the words of my Saviour Christ Jesus, in John 8:49-50:
"I have not a devil; but I honor my Father, and ye do dishonour me. And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth." Indeed, I am nothing but that which the Father would allow. And all be to His Glory from Whom all the Glory is!
But to the wicked man who would still insist that I "transgress the tradition of the elders" by being the vessel through whom this TRUTH is revealed unto you and brought unto our remembrance by the Holy Ghost, I again follow the example of my Lord Jesus and ask back, "Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?" (Matthew 15:2a,3b.) Indeed, as Christ Jesus said in Mark 7:9b-c: "Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition."
I have brought love, yet the stiffnecked man would return with no love. I have brought Scripture, yet the modern-day Pharisee would return only manmade doctrines. I have armed the TRUE Children of the LORD with the TRUTH, yet the children of the world would return with the plot of the wicked paradox. Yet do I know who it is that is in all these sad souls. To such, thus do I quote my Lord Jesus again in Mark 8:33:
((In the name of my Lord Jesus Christ,)) "Get thee behind me Satan: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but the things that be of men."
But to the TRUE Children of the LORD, I quote after 1_John 4:4: "Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them ((the children of the world)); because GREATER IS HE THAT IS IN YOU, THAN HE THAT IS IN THE WORLD."
