\\Interestingly, the Eastern Orthodox Church as an organization isn't mentioned at all in the Bible.\\

Yes, it is.

"Orthodox" is simply a label we wear where others can find us.

Our names to ourselves are Church of Christ, Church of God, Church of the First Born and all the other names you find in the NT.

That's us. Not yours.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

---Cluny on 8/21/14


Any other denomination could make that same claim. But only the Orthodox and catholic churches are so ignorant and Childish to actually do it. Mature Christians realize that the universal body of Christ contains Christians from many denominations, and that the original church had no denomination.

well, jed as basic as it is, Saturday is what people call the sabbath. it is not. observance of sabbath should begin Friday night.
---aka on 8/21/14


People are correct to say that Saturday is the Sabbath. You are also correct that the observance begins on Friday night. This is only contradictory if you assume that days begin and end at midnight. According to the Bible, they begin and end at sunset. This is true for all days, not just the Sabbath. Saturday actually begins at sunset on Friday night and ends at sunset on Saturday night. When sunset arrives on Friday it is no longer Friday, it is now Saturday. So to say that the Saturday is the Sabbath is correct, if you are going by the biblical definition of a day.


Devil Speaking Through Someone
  

Look at the doctrine being taught.

For example, the devil speaks through Lawrence all the time.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

---Cluny on 8/19/14


As well as through Cluny.

Interestingly, the Eastern Orthodox Church as an organization isn't mentioned at all in the Bible. And since the Orthodox church didnt exist until it"s split from the Roman Catholic Church, that only makes sense. In fact, the early Christiams.just simply called themselves Christians or believers or Disciples of Christ. Since all the different organized churches are a redult of splitting from one another, any denomination could claim that they were the original church of the new testament just as easily as the Eatern Orthodox Church could.


Why Is There War
  
War exists because good and evil exists. Because there are bad people who must be fought. As long as this is the case, war will be necessary and will continue to exist.

Jed, I don't call you names so please don't call me names. It's uncouth.
---love.jesus on 8/20/14


When did I call you a name? I never did such a thing. If you think I did, please quote it.


Why Is There War
  

There is war for the same reason there is crime or there is international capitalism. People want things that don't belong to them. All wars are about economics.

---love.jesus on 8/20/14


You seem to not understand simple concepts of economics. Capitalism is all about each person earning their own living and keeping what belongs to them and they worked for. I think you are talking about socialism. Socialism is about taking money you didn't earn from people who have more than you.

The Sabbath begins at sunset Friday night and lasts till sunset on Saturday night. Everyone should know that! That's one of the most basic things.


Forgiveness For An Abortion
  

Jed, you could have fooled me.

---love.jesus on 8/20/14


Yes. It seems you are easily fooled. You liberal ideology is a telltale sign of that.



Forgiveness For An Abortion
  

Jed and Jerry, I know you are obeying Jesus for he commanded, "Love your friends and hate your enemies." Keep up the good work.

---love.jesus on 8/20/14


Thanks. I will keep up the good work. But you're wrong about what Jesus said. He didn't say to hate your enemies. He said to love them, which is what I am doing for you (not that I consider you an enemy). I am loving you by urging you to repent so you can be saved. Do you think it is more loving to tell the lost that they are fine, and let them die in sin? I have said nothing derogatory toward you. I have only preached the gospel to you (which includes repentance) so that you may be saved, and I will continue to do so, out of love.

Blessings.


Why Is There War
  

Many mahometans in the West join jihadistas to be killers, or learn how to bring it elsewhere--especially to the USA.

Without God's intervention, what started in Syria may end in the USA.

Gory to Jesus Christ!

---Cluny on 8/19/14


Wow. First time in a long time I've found something that I actually agree with Cluny on. I would ad that all the Muslims in the west only make up a small amount of the total Muslims in the world.

Jed, I am not in any ttouble. But you are, saying the Bible contradicts itself.

---love.jesus on 8/19/14


I never said such a thing. Your chronic lying is the first sign of your spiritual condition. I only said that verse doesn't mean what you THINK it means. If you take that verse to mean that the all people are saved, the YOU are the one suggesting the Bible contradicts itself because there are far more verses that say the exact opposite. So, the only way that verse could mean all people are saved is if the Bible does contradict itself, which is what YOU are suggesting, not me. I'm clear about what the Bible says about salvation.


Men Of Adultery
  

It does give the qualifications for the executioners, so it relates to capital punishment.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

---Cluny on 8/19/14


So the executioners can't themselves be guilty of the same crime they are executing someone for. So as long as we don't employ convicted murderers as executioners in our prisons, we're fine. I don't think there are currently any convicted murderers working as executioners in the United States.


Christian Man Remarry
  

Of course we are saved. The Bible says so. 1.Tim.4:10

---love.jesus on 8/19/14


I hope you don't think that verse means that all people are saved! There are far more scriptures in the New Testament that prove otherwise. If that is your reason for thinking you are saved, then you are in serious trouble!


Forgiveness For An Abortion
  

Jed, I never said that. ---love.jesus on 8/18/14


Oh really? You haven't been supporting abortion on these blogs?

Do you wish me dead? What kind of Christian are you then?

No, I don't, and I never suggested that. Stop putting words in my mouth. That's the same as lying. I said you would have been better off to be dead than be an abortion supporter and be held responsible for all those abortions if you don't repent. My wish for you is to repent.

Anyway, I wasn't talking to you. Jerry can speak for himself. Thank you.

I wasn't speaking for Jerry. I have as much right to speak on the blogs as anyone else. You don't tell me what I can say and not say to you.


Men Of Adultery
  
Cluny, "let him without sin cast the first stone" really has no relevance to captial punishment. Capital punishment supporters generally aren't murderers and terrorists themselves. Jesus said "let him withoit sin cast the first stone" because her accusers were themselves guilty of adultery and deserved the same punishment, and Jesus was showing their hypocrisy. That's quite different than a mureder victim's family seeking justice for their murdered family member. Now, if someone demanding the death sentence was secretly a murderer themselves, then that would apply here.


Christian Man Remarry
  

Neither my wife nor I were Christians when we got married 48 years ago. I wonder if God thinks that we are truly married? Maybe our marriage isn't God's will after all.

---love.jesus on 8/10/14


Maybe it wasn't. Who knows? Regardless of whether your marriage was or wasn't God's will, what has been done has been done. And now that you are already married, it is most definitely God's will that you remain in your marriage, even if the marriage was not God-ordained. And since 48 years later you remain a non-Christian, you should first focus on becoming a Christian, repenting of your sins, and converting your ungodly marriage into a godly one.

Blessings.


Non Biblical Sayings
  
The Holy written Word of God supersedes anything your priest, or any man, THINKS God is speaking to him. It also supersedes any religious mad-made traditions, such as those expressed by Cluny. Human beings are just that... human. We (and when I say we I mean human beings, Cluny) are subject to emotions, which can lead to delusions. If someone THINKS God is speaking to him, but the message contradicts the inerrant written Word of God, then what he 'prophesies' is NOT from God.


Men Of Adultery
  

the man of John 8 was probably in collusion...not only to frame her but also to challenge Jesus.

---aka on 8/17/14


There is no evidence that the woman was framed at all! The Bible suggests that the woman was indeed guilty of adultery. In fact, after the men left, Jesus told the woman "your sins are forgiven. Go and sin no more". Jesus didn't pardon the woman because he believed she was innocent. He knew she wasn't. He pardoned her because she was guilty, but He was teaching a message about mercy. Jesus could have demanded proof or evidence, but He didn't need it. Instead, he said "let him without sin cast the first stone", because he was showing their hypocrisy.

Kathr, Brown was an 18 year old man. Why do you keep condescendingly calling him a kid? He was a full grown adult.
