    Default Website question.. what are Associates for Scriptural Knowledge ?

    Hi, rummaging trough online materials I came upon this website : http://www.askelm.com/ . Does anyone know about them, are they kosher, so to speak?
    “My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline, and do not lose heart when he rebukes you, because the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son.” Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children.
    Hebrews 12:5,6,7

    I had a quick skim through four of their articles and so far it doesn't look promising: For example, they say, "We are all destined to be EQUAL with Christ and He will be equal with us. All of us are to become part and parcel to God and to Christ Jesus. We will all then be in them, and they will then be in us" (http://askelm.com/doctrine/d040202.htm). Now it may be that I am reading too much into what they mean there so you'd have to read the context yourself. They deny the personhood of the Holy Spirit. They also seem to believe in universalism (http://www.askelm.com/doctrine/d030601.htm) In another article (http://www.askelm.com/doctrine/d091101.htm) they seem to have an odd view of the resurrection body and also talk about how believers will be "trained" for the first 70-years of the Millennial kingdom. Rather strange.

    Just the title puts my hackles up.

    I really think the best source for knowledge of God is the Bible. A lot can get twisted in people's "interpretation". To learn about the Bible, read the Bible. Don't read what someone else writes on the Bible.

    " I have had an increasing burden to engage in some down and dirty, street evangelism." March 6, 2010

    Isaiah 6:8 I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “ Whom shall I send, And who will go for Us?”

    Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”

    Matthew 22:9 NIV
    'So go to the street corners and invite to the banquet anyone you find.’

    Heretics!

    They deny the Trinity and go on to say basically, we will become gods, kind of mormon like theology.

    There is nothing of value, the tree is diseased, so any fruit would be as well.
    There is One King, and He is not this guy.

    Yeah, beware anyone who says they have to "interpret" scripture for you.

    JW's and Catholics come to mind, although the pope is "allowing" people to read the New Testament for themselves now.

    I don't think you are reading too much into it - if they deny the personhood of the Holy Spirit - that one item alone is enough to negate anything else they have to say.

    This guy is so wrong on so many things it's amazing, even what is considered merely factual things. His heretical doctrine is enough to make us

    Here's just one more, in addition to the above posts, that should be of interest to us:

    The Pre-Tribulation Rapture Theory, however, is a menacing doctrine that perverts the plain language of the text of the New Testament. http://www.askelm.com/essentials/ess025.htm

    I don't know what Bible he's reading, but he's wrong about this too.

    Jesus + something = nothing

    Jesus + nothing = Everything
