Christian's Handbook 2

Handbook 2 is about God's original plan and what He is doing now, including His Spirit's departure from the "organized visible church."

Conduct in the Household of God

Handbook 2: Article 32 - Teaching

"I write so that you may know how one ought to conduct himself in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and support of the truth."

1 Timothy 3:15

From 1 Thessalonians 5:11-22:

  • Rejoice always.
  • Pray without ceasing.
  • In everything give thanks, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
  • Do not quench the Spirit.
  • Do not despise prophetic utterances.
  • Examine everything, hold fast to that which is good.
  • Abstain from every form (or appearance) of evil.
  • Encourage (or comfort) one another.
  • Build up one another.
  • Appreciate those who diligently labor among you.
  • Live in peace with one another.
  • Admonish the unruly (or undisciplined).
  • Encourage the fainthearted, help the weak.
  • Be patient with all men.
  • See that no one repays another with evil.
  • Seek that which is good for one another and all men.

From Galatians 6:1-6:

  • If a one is caught in any trespass, you who are spiritual, restore such a one in the spirit of gentleness, looking to yourselves, lest you too be tempted.
  • Bear one another's burdens, and thus fulfill the law of Christ.
  • Let each one examine his own work.

"Be subject to one another in the fear of Christ."

Ephesians 5:21

"Do not speak against one another. He who speaks against a brother or judges his brother, speaks against the law and judges the law; but if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law, but a judge of it."

James 4:11

"When you gather (assemble), each one has a psalm, has a teaching, has revelation, has a tongue, has an interpretation. Let all things be done for edification. If anyone speaks in a tongue, it should be two or at the most three, and each in turn, and let one interpret; but if there is no interpreter, let him keep silent in the church; and let him speak to himself and to God.

And let two or three prophets speak, and let the others pass judgment. But if a revelation is made to one who is seated, let the first keep silent. For you can all prophesy one by one, so that all may learn and be exhorted; and the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets; for God is not a God of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints."

1 Corinthians 14:26-33
