My Take

Marcus Rodgers and Ruslan

  1. What we call things
    • Definition:- Trinity Versus Oneness
      • Is Jesus completely God?
    • Opinion
      • I think Ruslan was bit more edgy than he ought
      • I personally think arriving at a trinitarian view does not happen only through scripture
      • I think it is scriptural fully acceptive through revelation
      • Yet, being open that what if it is not so, I do not want to lose my soul
  2. Marcus Rodgers
    • Brother In Christ
      • Marcus Rodgers feels that he is not fully accepted as a brother in Christ by Ruslan
      • Ruslan responds I accept you as a brother in Christ, but I feel there remains some missed spots in your understanding of the depth of scripture
      • And, those things will show up in your teaching
      • If they do, people who listen to you will be affected
      • And, for that reason, I can not cosign your ministry
    • Marriages
      • Marcus Rodgers fessed I have been divorced twice
      • I left the marriages as I could no longer fully function as me in them
      • Unfortunately to protect those women, I can not be too wet about discussing those relationships
      • Furthermore, the spirit of God should disclose to you the discomfort I still feel going back to that person
  3. Expand
    • Expand the forum to include:-
      • Dante Bowe
      • Lecrae

Jan Markel, Pastor Carey Gordon

  1. I think it is difficult to grow the body of Christ when one calls denominational leaders and pastors “Enemies of The Church
  2. To me some of the differences are doctrinal and associational
  3. Having differences does not always fully equate to someone being an enemy
  4. Some of the cited enemies are:-
    • Andy Stanley
    • Russell Moore
    • Tim Keller
  5. Adversarial Gospel
    • Social Gospel



  1. 1 Thessalonians
    • 1st Thessalonians 4:11 – Living To Please God ( Link )
      • 11 and to aspire to live quietly, to attend to your own matters, and to work with your own hands, as we instructed you.
      • 12 Then you will behave properly toward outsiders, without being dependent on anyone.…
  2. Acts
    • Acts 18:3 – Paul’s Ministry in Corinth ( Link )
      • 2 There he found a Jew named Aquila, a native of Pontus, who had recently come from Italy with his wife Priscilla because Claudius had ordered all the Jews to leave Rome. Paul went to visit them,
        3 and he stayed and worked with them because they were tentmakers by trade, just as he was.
        4 Every Sabbath he reasoned in the synagogue, trying to persuade Jews and Greeks alike.…
  3. Galatians
    • Galatians 6:1 ( Link )
      • Douay-Rheims Bible
        • Brethren, and if a man be overtaken in any fault, you, who are spiritual, instruct such a one in the spirit of meekness, considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.
  4. 1st Corinthians
    • 1st Corinthians 5:12 – Expel the Immoral Brother ( Link )
      • For what have I to do to judge them that are without ? Do not you judge them that are within ?
    • 1st Corinthians 9:12 ( Link )
      • 12 If others have this right to your support, shouldn’t we have it all the more? But we did not exercise this right. Instead, we put up with anything rather than hinder the gospel of Christ.
        13 Do you not know that those who work in the temple eat of its food, and those who serve at the altar partake of its offerings?
        14 In the same way, the Lord has prescribed that those who preach the gospel should receive their living from the gospel.…
  5. 2nd Corinthians
    • 2nd Corinthians 2:5 – Reaffirm Your Love ( Link )
      • 4 For through many tears I wrote you out of great distress and anguish of heart, not to grieve you but to let you know how much I love you.
      • 5 Now if anyone has caused grief, he has not grieved me but all of you— to some degree, not to overstate it.
      • 6 The punishment imposed on him by the majority is sufficient for him.…



Brothers, let us continue “to live quietly, tending to our own matters, working with our own hands“, as we are being instructed.
