That's a complete rewrite of the passage. "if the commandments of hem we should [guard]" That doesn't say guard the word of God, period. I'm pretty sure what you just did was show how you all don't know him because if you did, you wouldn't be protecting the commandments, you would be keeping them.Guarding the word of God over and against the likes of Mormons.
Yes. You did. Impressive. But also clear evidence that your professors, or whoever you think taught you this, is clueless. The commandments are only a subset of God's word. Therefore, by your statement, you are protecting the commandments from us. But we aren't the ones trying to change them. you guys are. I'd say you guys are doing a horrible job of protecting them.You asked, I answered.
Oh. I have heard and responded. You all are not keeping them or protecting them, you all are abusing them. Wolves among the sheep. Tell me, which commandment do you think you're protecting now?Guard is inclusive of keeping but you still haven't heard that despite telling you twice already.
Yes. You are. You're using the words of a murderer.I've already provided the Greek in the above in a previous post.
Think of it like this. Am I my brother's keeper?
If you're going to keep it, then why change it?Keep in this sense is also like guard or watching over.
Keep this in mind, Cain knew what happened to his brother, didn't he. He knew exactly what happened to his brother because he did it and used that as an excuse to cover his deed. If Abel and died by accident, then it seems likely that Cain could use that statement. This is the same abuse that our critics use on us.
Love one another as Jesus loved us. As you claim to guard the commandments, you break them. Rather than teach the commandments, you claim you are guarding the commandments against us when all I asked, all the OP asked was how does one know if they are keeping/guarding the commandments. Like Cain, you all are not guarding them at all, you all are breaking them. And the question remains unanswered.
And your method of answering leaves a lot to be desired.I believe your method of questioning leaves little to be desired,
