Teach One Another – BT15
Jesus didn’t command us to teach the bible or even the NT writings!

Contrary to so much false teaching, Jesus did NOT command His 11 apostles or anybody else in Matthew 28:20’s Great Commission to “teach disciples everything I’ve taught you,” but instead said: “teaching them to watch/guard/attend to maintain all that I have officially-decreed as commandments (a) you,” but there were only 2 such commandments (a) in the NT combined into a single compound commandment: “having trusting-relying-faith in the name/authority of God’s Son Jesus Christ and/coupled unconditionally-loving one another, just as God has given us [single] commandment” (b). The Holy Spirit would do all the other teaching needed – there was absolutely no need to write down any of Christ’s teachings! When you look at the Spirit’s grace-gifts, it’s very obvious that prophecy was going to be the way the Church would all be “taught by God” (c) by the “anointing for ALL informational gnosis knowledge so that you have absolutely in fact no need that any man teach you” (d). <Notes> a) entole, b) 1 John 3:23, c) John 6:45; 1 Thessalonians 4:9, d) 1 John 2:20, 27.
As Christian musicians, shouldn’t we stick with what the bible really says instead of making it up “on the fly” to justify what we want to do? Can’t we just trust a perfect God to use a perfect Holy Spirit to be able to teach us everything He wants to us to know and do in our personal lives? Why are we holding onto the security blanket of sacred writings that are so generalized that the Jews spent 1000s of years writing more laws to try to make it specific for people? Are we not aware that there are only 2 simple commandments of faith and love in the New Covenant?
