Was Jesus God In Human Form
  
Ironically, "Gehenna" (or "hell fire" referenced in Mt.5:22, Mr.9:47) was the place spoken of in Jer 7:31-32 where children were sacrificed to the god Moloch in "valley of the son of Hinnom" to the south of Jerusalem (Josh. 15:8, II Kings 23:10, Jer 19:6) (jewish encyclopedia dot com)

aka.joseph does not believe people will burn forever. aka.joseph believes that Jesus was using a comparison to the pain and anguish people who are eternally separated from the Father will feel (Luk 13:28) when they are cast out. This is the pain that children felt when they were sacrificed in literal fire.

In Mat 18:9, Jesus says "gehenna" fire and in the preceding verse, he says "everlating fire."


How To Get Husband Back
  
firstly, i agree with friendly. it gives time for him to sort out what he needs to in order for a proper homecoming.

secondly, to assume it is a trust issue might be missing the mark. the guy might trust her but just simply does not want to live with her. let's face it...people are way out of control nowadays and people are not covering themselves properly. therefore, it makes it nearly impossible to live sometimes. it usually is about control.

my wife, who left also, wants to control everything. as difficult as it is raising three on my own, it is much harder to run a smooth household when she is here.

Gal 5:15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.


Old And New Testament
  
leslie,

i read your response and thought, "is there another joseph in the room?... I am saying exactly what she is...how can I have it all wrong...." Then, I realized that Joseph posed the question.

LOL


Old And New Testament
  
similarity-only one way to salvation and neither can stand alone.

The bible is a series of books that lead up to the full Revelation of Jesus Christ. There are certain man-made divisions that are good help if used properly: verses and division between the OT and NT.

However, I see that more and more with these divisions context can skewed and manipulated. This causes doctrinal divisions which skews the similarity mentioned above.


Used A Structured Settlement
  
Friendly Blogger,

Despite all your great advice...so be it.


Does Satan Go To Church
  
Mat 13:24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:
Mat 13:25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.

What Robyn wrote is not about omnipresence. It is the truth. If she needs to say Satan and his minions, wake up! There are the enemy's tares (Satan) all around.

Scott,

//What exactly do I 'claim' that I am?//

You have claimed that you are a baptist that studies with JWs.

//Your disdain for JWs clouds your objectivity and reasoning ability.//

Please, do not mix my words. I have disdain for the Watchtower Society and its false doctrine. I have no disdain the people that it deceives and uses.

//Are you not a believer?//

Yes, so if you consider this study, let's go back for a second, because I have not heard your view of some things that I studied. Is Jer 7:31 about hellfire or child sacrifice? Did Jesus ever talk about hellfire?


Blood Transfusions Biblical
  
...It's obvious that Warwick posed this question in order to goad David and Scott (JWs)into an argument that he thinks he can win! I doubt that they'll bite!
---1st_cliff on 8/3/10

It's ironic that quite a few of the questions on this blog site are posed to bait Christians into arguments that are designed to introduce doubt.

It's ironic that the issue side-steps sound arguments what is said is twisted or ignored.


Disciples Received The Holy Spirit
  
//the disciples received the Holy Spirit when Jesus breathed on them...// -barb

I didn't know that. scripture please.

//The apostles taught by Jesus left us no account re the Pentecost as recorded in Acts// -barb

Luke, who was an eye witness of Jesus, wrote two letters to Theophilus. One was the Gospel of Luke and one was the book of Acts. Luke was also a traveling companion of Paul. Therefore, Luke was a witness to Paul and his experiences.


Paul Have A Different Message

Blood Transfusions Biblical
  
in the circulatory system, the major organs are the heart, blood vessels and blood. blood and organ transplants are not mentioned in Scripture, but the bible is full of scripture about sacrifice.


Was Jesus God In Human Form
  
scott, i cannot give you one verse that explains the Jesus incarnate is also fully God. But, I can suggest 66 books (chopped up into verses) that do explain it.

As far as Jesus being the 'perfect man'...

A man, who claims to be the Son of God, ("his only begotten Son" -John 3:16), and claims to have a Kingdom that is not of the earth, is either exactly who He says He is, or he is (at bes) a mad-man (and not nearly a perfect man).

Scott, despite what you claim that you are, you will do better to study with Bible believers than Watchtower advocates.

FWIW, "to pnevma" is NEUTER in Greek. ---Cluny on 8/2/10

I really do not know the point you are making, Cluny.

The Greek word for spirit- 'pneuma'- on the other hand is neuter in gender and is properly translated "it". ---David8318 on 7/31/10


What's August 2010 Blog
  
up until this summer, i used to sink like a rock in the pool when i let the air out of my lungs. now, i float air in or air out.

so, i guess what is up is my body fat content :~)


Where Was Jesus After Death
  
"Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise" said

God, the Son (me)

God, the Father (me) and

God, the Holy Spirit (me).

Three 'me's in Thee.

Godliness IS a mystery!


Was Jesus God In Human Form
  
scott, i am not a proselyte, judaizer, or a Judeo-Christian (which is an oxymoron in itself).

Jews do not believe that the "messiah" is divine. To them, God is absolutely different from humans, and their Moshiach would never become a human. to them, their messiah has not returned yet.

i have no idea what they meant with their shema, but to me it was scripture that could not be fully understood until the life, death, and resurrection of my Messiah, Jesus Christ.


Who Is The Holy Spirit
  
I have heard that Jesus does not teach "hell fire". He mentions it various times in Scripture. Mat 18:9(even in ESV).

I have hear Jer 7:31 be used as a verse that speaks out against "hellfire" when it is clearly about child sacrifice.

...now, I hear that the use of 'pneuma' for the word 'spirit' is an 'it'. John 4:24 God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth. The sentence uses "pneuma" (it) yet the is a conjunctive sentence that uses 'him' instead of "it" (ESV)


Who Is The Holy Spirit
  
--John 4:24 God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.

Under the rules according to some here, God is also a(n) "it".

--John 3:8 The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit."

I did not know that ANY PERSON can be birthed by an "it".

--John 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.


Was Jesus God In Human Form
  
1st_cliff, you are right, in a sense, Deu 6:4 does say it all: "Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God (plural-elohiym), the LORD is one.

All in one and one in all.

I know...save your fingertips...polytheistic neo-platonic, man-made...blah, blah, blah...

Anyway, one verse does not say it all. Genesis 1:1 to Rev 22:21 (of credible scripture) says it all.
