Contrasts in Scriptures
- Not Contradictions -


Matthew 10:8
Romans 4:24
Matthew 10:7,8 - And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

Great Commission
Those signs that were to follow them during the Great Commission were given to them 'freely.'

But not following the Great Commission, instead following Paul, we see that these healings, gifts, etc. are not what is given to us 'freely' today.

We also see that in Revelation 21:6; 22:17, we see that the water of life is given freely.  That would be Millennial / Eternity application.

Paul, showing God's way more perfectly, shows us what was given to us 'freely'.

We certainly should see the difference between the OT Gospels and Paul's epistles when it comes to singing the song 'Freely.'

  • Romans 3:24 - Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
Freely gave all things!
  • Romans 8:32 -  He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
We can know what He has given us freely!
  • I Corinthians 2:12 - Furthermore, when I came to Troas to preach Christ's gospel, and a door was opened unto me of the Lord,
Paul's words of preaching, thus the KJB's Epistles.
  • II Corinthians 11:7 - Have I committed an offence in abasing myself that ye might be exalted, because I have preached to you the gospel of God freely?
Word of the Lord have free course!
  • II Thessalonians 3:1 - Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you:
