There is no time period between the fall of Jerusalem and the second coming of Christ. They are synchronous events time-wise. ... There is no scriptural basis for extending the second coming of Christ beyond the fall of Judaism. (The Spirit of Prophecy, p.81, 105).In his debate with Gus Nichols, King said:
I affirm the VISIBLE coming of Jesus Christ in the destruction of Jerusalem. And I affirm the ACTUAL coming, and the REAL coming of Jesus Christ in the destruction of Jerusalem (p.48). ... I affirm that Jesus came REALLY and TRULY and ACTUALLY and VISIBLY the second time (p.49)!
It is most likely that in the Apostolic age when there was but "one Lord, one faith, and one baptism," and no differing denominations existed, the baptism of a convert by that very act constituted him a member of the church, and at once endowed him with all the rights and privileges of full membership. In that sense, "baptism was the door into the church." Now, it is different;...This quote is taken from the 1946 edition of The Standard Manual For Baptist Churches, authored by Edward T. Hiscox.
[Editor's Note: We apologize for not printing this article sooner. It was an oversight on my part.]Thanks for all your response to the article, "A Way To Detect A False Teacher," which appeared in the June, 1996 issue. Requests have been so numerous for copies of the questionnaire that we are going to print it in this issue of "Seek The Old Paths." I will, in future issues, deal with some of the erroneous answers we have received in the past. These questions are some we first used with our Bible class teachers and covers a number of false teachings going on in the brotherhood. In order to be successful with the questionnaire, let me urge you to include all questions pertaining to error you are aware of being taught. For example, when you hear of a preacher teaching there are apostles and prophets in the church today or that it is a sin to have florescent lights in the church building, then you need to word a question accordingly. If you hear of a false teacher coming to your area to teach the young people of your area, or coming for a Gospel Meeting, you should check them out on what they are teaching and if it is error, stop their mouths through the use of the Word of God.
"I look forward eagerly for each publication of Seek The
Old Paths. It is a much needed publication among the
brotherhood today. Fortunately, you and a few others are willing to
let everyone know what is happening, where it is happening and who
is teaching error. Unfortunately, there are elders, preachers, and
other people who hold to the view that their only responsibility is
to the local congregation where they attend services, unless they
are directly affected by what is happening in other congregations
or other states. I have not been able to find any scripture that
limits the exposing of false teachers anymore than there is a limit
on fulfilling the Great Commission. Thank you for the good work and
may God continue to bless you. Enclosed is a check" ...Myron
Morris, Elba, AL.
[EDITOR'S NOTE: You have mentioned a good point in saying that many do nothing unless it affects their congregation directly. Sad to say, I fear that many will do nothing about error even when it does invade the local congregation. Usually, by that time, its seeds, roots and tentacles are so deeply implanted in many that correction cannot be made without a church split and souls being eternally lost. Who was it that said, "An once of prevention is worth a pound of cure?" "To be forewarned is to be forearmed." To ignore a medical problem in our physical body until it has gone so far it cannot be reversed, will do no good when our family passes by our casket! "Preventative maintenance" is a norm in the world of mechanics and other industries. Why many brethren refuse to see the Lord's instructions regarding it in the church is beyond my comprehension. "Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle" (2 Thess. 2:15). "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth" (2 Tim. 2:15). "But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear" (1 Peter 3:15). "Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might" (Eph. 6:10). "Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin" (1 Peter 4:1). Will you be forewarned? Don't wait until it's too late!]
