BIBLE COLLEGE - BIBLE COURSES

Several people have inquired from time to time whether CWM has a Bible College or any intentions to form one. Thought was to establish one in Brisbane, Australia, but it is too big an undertaking for us at the moment (July 2002).
For those serious about Bible College/Courses we recommend our link with MORIEL - South Africa branch.(www.moriel.co.za)

The College web-site:- http://myweb.absa.co.za/alistair.gordon/ acc.mbc.ecv/Moriel/index.htm (URL may have separated in transit)

Verses which point to a Rapture

Jn 14:1-3    Rom 8:19   I Cor 15:1-53   1 Cor 16:22   Phil 3:20-21   Col 3:4   1 Thess 1:10   1 Thess 5:9   2 Thess 5:23   1 Tim 6:14    2 Tim 4:1   Titus 2:13   Heb 9:28   Jas 5:7-9   1 Pet 1:7,13   1 Jn 2:28-3:2   Jude 21   Rev 2:25   Rev 3:10


How do we know there will be a "Second Coming", separate from the "Rapture"?

Dan 2:44-45   Dan 7:9-14   Dan 12:1-3   Zech 14:1-15   Mt 24:15-31   Mt 26:64   Mk 13:14-27   Mk 14:62    Lk 21:25-28   Acts 1:9-11   Acts 3:19-21   1 Thess 3:13   2 Thess 1:6-10   2 Pet 3:1-14   Jude 14-15   Rev 1:7    Rev 19:11-20:6   Rev 22:7,12,20



CWM teaches that 10% tithing is an Old Testament requirement for Israel, that is NOT taught or required in the New Testament.
It was practiced in Israel as a means to support a theocratic government and parallels our Tax system in most western societies.
All of the various tithes equate to about 23% of an employed man (family) in Israel at the time the law was being practiced.

We do not object to the "tithing" (10%) practice in the Church as a sort of fair means of distribution, but we insist that it is NOT obligatory but entirely voluntary.
The New Testament pattern was to lay aside as the Lord "prospered" and it was to be given cheerfully and without pressure or any obligation. We are totally against the strong emphasis that many churches place on monitory giving.

The only blessing that is promised as a direct result of giving is when we give to the poor and this is the only basis of the idea of planting seeds and reaping "a harvest".
It is more blessed to give than to receive BUT most churches have reversed that to read "IT is more blessed to US to receive than to give."
Apologetics:

CWM is often asked whether we have asection dealing strictly with Apologetics. As we strive to identify & warn you of the practices of some Shepherds, we find that we often do not get time to write our own set of Apologetics statements.
However by using our SEARCH field you can find what we have in this field. A good article to start with is "Escatology"

An excellent witness statement is found HERE...
