False Friends

Verse Your Answer Correct/Incorrect
“And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.”
(Genesis 2:18)
Contextually, the helpmeet would be somebody that would come alongside and that would help meet. And the first instance is when Eve faced Satan. So I don’t think it’s gardening or laundry; I think the help meet is to help him. Because the phraseology mean helpmeet or one who goes in front of. If she is in front of him, then her first true opportunity to help is Genesis 3:1, and she blew it. Incorrect
“Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.”
(1 Timothy 4:3)
Abstaining from meats would be for the sake of rituals, observing rituals. Back then, there was a religious connotation, like with Peter. The Lord said don’t call unclean what I call clean. So it’s as a religious list of do’s and don’ts. It’s food. Like the Catholic church or the Jews don’t do pork. They thought it would give them a better standing with God. Unclear
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
(2 Timothy 2:15)
I think study is deeper than just what it says on the surface. There has to be a diligence and you have to take the time to slow down. Because verse 14 says you’re putting people in remembrance, strive not about words. So study is incumbent on anyone who uses the Word of God for apologetics. So study is a word that will take you deeper in the words, the context of the Scripture. Incorrect
“And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the Lord be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.”
(1 Kings 18:21)
It means hesitate. Here you had a group of people who were looking at two opinions. Why is this even a context? Why would you not quickly look at God? What has Baal done to make you think he has any credibility? They couldn’t answer because what he said was true. Incorrect
“If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.”
(1 Corinthians 15:19)
We are in a pitiful state. In other words, everything we’re doing has come down to “what are we doing?”
Of course it’s centered around the resurrection and Jesus being the firstfruits from the dead. Miserable is when we’re in the pitiful, depressed, dark state. If this is the most we’re going to get out of it, good grief!, what are we doing this for?
Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set.”
(Proverbs 22:28)
There’s a sister verse that goes with this: “Enter not into the field of the fatherless”. These are boundaries, markers. Our boundaries are only as good as our fathers’: Earthly and Heavenly fathers. There are some things that are givens in our life, and you’re not to fool with those. It’s either taking it away or turning away, and all of a sudden you are taking the ancient landmark and adjusting it, moving it. Or removing is moving to a different location in your life. Correct
“Therefore now, Lord God of Israel, keep with thy servant David my father that thou promisedst him, saying, There shall not fail thee a man in my sight to sit on the throne of Israel; so that thy children take heed to their way, that they walk before me as thou hast walked before me.”
(1 Kings 8:25)
I think the rest of the verse explains it. So that is a bridge; it’s a condition. If they want to keep the dynasty going, it’s incumbent on them that they take heed to their way. It’s a bridge so future generations know you can have this lineage as long as… Correct
“Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only.”
(Philippians 4:15)
It’s just to keep in touch. But it’s more than that because in chapter 2 it talks about how they loved Paul and Paul loved them. It’s not just a letter, it’s distributing. I think the word is distributing because in verse 10 they couldn’t get it to Rome. That’s why Paul said this. That’s why he said “I’ve learned to be content”. And he continued to say “I can do all things through Christ.” Correct
“Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.”
(Matthew 13:21)
I think it’s time. This is found in Mark 7 also, I believe. In Mark, there’s this immediate accepting, this gladness. Jesus said if they hated me, they’ll hate you. It’s just a matter of time until every believer comes to grips with this. This is not a qualification of salvation but of sanctification. Unclear
“These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.”
(John 16:1)
This is coming to the end of the book. I think the risen Lord is getting them ready to understand what Acts is about. The next verse says “they shall put you out of the synagogues”. He is probably telling them this so that in the context of everything going, they would be able to stay out of a position of being offended. Because of the Holy Spirit, they don’t have to be caught in a spirit of offense. If the Spirit is working in the life of a believer, he’s our guide and we should be able to stay out of being offended. Incorrect
