    I find it hard to analize 2 Cor.5 16 & 17. Both verses have conjunction “therefore”. Where is it grounded specifically? Any idea on these brothers?

    16 From now on, therefore, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we once regarded Christ according to the flesh, we regard him thus no longer. 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.

    Yes brother, I understand. Because if we will set 10% as the baseline, then we will fall into legalism. Giving from the heart will not be the basis then.

    In the process of evangelism, we have observed that one people are only willing to give a short time to hear the gospel. So the way we present the Gospel to them should be brief and concise. Do you have any suggestion of an outline that we can make as a reference on what we really need to say in evangelism?

    In the Philippines, it is part of the culture to eat blood of animal, like blood of pork or beef. It is called dinugoan, wherein pure animal blood is cooked and seasoned with salt and spices. But in the Old Testament it says in Deuteronomy 12:23
    Only be sure that you do not eat the blood, for the blood is the life, and you shall not eat the life with the flesh. While in the New Testament it says in Matthew 15:11
    it is not what goes into the mouth that defiles a person, but what comes out of the mouth; this defiles a person.”
    Any idea about this?

    I have a follow-up question brother. If we are not commanded to give tithes today, Is it Biblical to say that tithes or 10% of our income is just a minimum of what real christians give to God as a monetary offering? What I’m trying to say is that since the Holy Spirit really lives inside a converted person’s life, then he has become so transformed that the giving of the offering that he once hated to do, now he does cheerfully and joyfully knowing that everything he has even money is not his but God’s.

    @Brent-Karding

    Yes Brother, I am convinced and I believe the doctrine of Perseverance of the saints. Please help me how to share this verse to those who are confused because of it. How am I going to explain to them the phrases: “after they have escaped the defilements of the world”, and “after washing herself” both in 2 Peter 2:20-22, and also the phrase: “you too will be cut off” in Romans 11:22? In these verses, its mentioned that they have escaped the defilements and washed, that could be confusing because it sounds like they have been regenerated. you too will be cut off is a phrase that implies that they were once part of the body or vine and were threatened to be cut off from the body. Please enlighten me about these things brother.
