1/2 Nicole_Lacey: Perhaps, there are a few things that you might do before making a declamation.
One, use Bible verses in context *1.
Two, study more as there is a considerable amount of discussion about some of these subjects over the Centuries. Reading the different arguments and counter arguments, might be helpful to you. Some of your opinions are not even consistent with the more erudite R.C. position(s). Three, most Evangelicals don't recognize any Council after Chalcedon, least of all Trent. And an argumentum ad Magisterium is a peculiar evidence to give to non Roman Catholics.


Shark Attacks In North Carolina
  
God has on occasion punished people singularly, or collectively, for disobeying Him. Yet, most deaths and injuries are a result of living in a fallen World, rather than being a form of execution. Avoid swimming near fishing peers though. Genesis 2:17, 3:6 (Romans 5:12), Deuteronomy chapters 27-28, 2Kings 1:9-12, Luke 13:1-5, Acts 5:1-10, 12:21-23, 1Corinthians 11:29-30.


Death By Weather Godly
  
Usually weather is a natural phenomenon. Although, God has on occasion controlled it. Also, people have a small influence on some localized areas - deforestation, planting in dry areas, cloud seeding, etc.. Some people question as to whether the U.S. may have technology that can influence the climate as well. Satan was given temporary permission to attack Job, but God is ultimately in charge.
Genesis 6:5-8:14, Exodus 9:22-29, Job 1:16, 19, 2:7, Psalm 135:6-7, Jonah 1:4, Matthew:23-27.

2/2 Four, please consider that there are a few people on the blog, who are trying to help you.
Five, back definitive statements with evidence *2.
Six, when you make a mistake - repent, and then go on to the next point. In example, many of your comments about the Apocrypha are incorrect, but you will not receive correction.
Seven, also, please consider - *a "with meekness and fear".
Proverbs 24:28, Matthew 7:12, 23:4, 1Corinthians 14:33-38, 1Timothy 2:11-15, 2Timothy 2:15-16, 1Peter 3:4, *a 15-16.
*1 *a ("Because Peter"... 6/30) concerns giving testimony about Jesus, not Church polity.
*2 ("Unfortunately...R.C.C." 6/30) Also, Cluny said what?


Tithe Your Money Or Else
  
Abraham gave a 10% kickback on military spoils to Melchizedek. The first tithe concerned only Jews, in Israel, and was of a few types of animals, and some crops, The second Tithe was for the poor, And the third was a party fund. Tithing was prohibited both in the early Church, and the early protestant movement. It is law / not grace! However, being charitable is consistent with having a new nature. Deuteronomy 15:7-11, Romans 12:8, 2Corinthians 8:8, 9:5-7, Galatians 2:10, 1Timothy 5:16-18, 1Peter 4:9, 1John 3:17.

Strong Axe: In Revelations 17:10-11, "and one is" was written in the singular present indicative. Therefore, it was the then present Caesar in Rome, not the future Mufti of Mecca. In the opinion of early Christian, Eastern Orthodox, Papist, and Protestant theologians, the city in question was Rome. Many folk in the R.C. believe that the last Roman (anti) Pope will be the Anti-Christ, 19:20. In 17:18, the city refered to is Rome.
And the Lord did not send an Angel to mislead "his servants", including John about the matter, Revelations 1:1-2.


Husband Never Buys Me Gifts
  
Here are two verses to stop ignoring *1. If she does this *2, and he does this *3, this resolves the situation.
However, for the unmarried: make an honest evaluation of both ones own, and a potential partner's suitability to be a spouse / learn what your responsibilities are - and then do them / have an unjaundiced view of matrimony / Philippians 2:3-5.
*1 Genesis 2:18, Titus 2:3-5.
*2 1Corinthians 11:3-10, 13, 15-16, 14:34-35, Ephesians 5:22-24, 33, Colossians 3:18, 1Timothy 2:11-14, Titus 2:5, 1Peter 3:1-2, 5-6.
*3 1Corinthians 7:33, Ephesians 5:25-29, 31, 33, Colossians 3:19, 1Timothy 5:8, 1Peter 3:7.


Caveman Before Adam
  
Nicole_Lacey 6/20: Cain may very well have imagined that his parents might still have other children. And so, he could have been fearful of his own future mundane descendants (Genesis 4:1-24), and those of Seth *1. If women were fertile for hundreds of years, some folks opine that a billion + people could have been born by the time of the flood, 6:11-13. *1 There are some Jewish writers who supposed that 5:4 is not referring to Adam's 3 sons and 2 (or more) daughters, but more than 50 children. But 6:2 demonstrates that there was intermarriage between only two lines, Seth and Cain.


Legitamate Christian Ministry
  
judy_chapman:
1/2 "Ministry" / therapy programs come and go. They usually cost $$$, but deliver pennies. Talking to someone can be helpful, even more so if he / she comes from a Christian perspective. But there are many worthless therapeutic techniques that are in opposition to a Biblical world view. Heartsync(s) program seems to be a treatment of dissociative disorder. If it has to do with any of the following therapies: "inner healing" / Recovered Memory / Theophostic, it is destructive, heretical, and a quackery.


Tithe Your Money Or Else
  
I hope Derek_W escaped the gloom, Psalm 107:10-11, John 1:5.
Greed: Acts 20:25-35, 1Corinthians 5:9-13, 6:8-11, Galatians 5:15-26, Ephesians 5:1-16, 1Timothy 3:1-16, Titus 1:5-16, Hebrews 12:14-17, 13:5, 1Peter 5:1-3, 2Peter 2:1-22.

Cluny: the ancient enclosed city of Rome is built on seven hills. Had John meant Athens or Jerusalem, there would have been no problem in making it clear, Revelations 11:8. Although, openly mentioning the destruction of Rome was a different matter, Revelations 14:8, 16:19, 17:5, 18:2, 10, 21.
p.s. Mecca was founded in the fourth century.


Helping The Poor
  
aservant: What Bible version do you use? In Hebrews, there is a strong comparison between the Old and New Covenants. Jesus was "made a high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec." But 7:8 is still referring to the Canaanite King (Genesis 14:18), not an offering to the Lord in Heaven. And since 7:18 disannuls the Tithe, where do you see it reinstated? In 8:3, 9:28, the Offering was Jesus himself, not cash. Hebrews 6:20-10:31.


Son In Pink Clothing
  
It works if he is wearing a charcoal colored suit, especially with the right tie. If you are opposed to his wearing roseate footed pajamas though, yours would be the final opinion on the matter. If you do this *1, she does this *2, and you both consider this *3, your family would probably be quite a bright light in your neighborhood.
*1 1Corinthians 7:33, Ephesians 5:25-29, 31, 33, Colossians 3:19, 1Timothy 5:8, 1Peter 3:7.
*2 1Corinthians 11:3-10, 13, 15-16, 14:34-35, Ephesians 5:22-24, 33, Colossians 3:18, 1Timothy 2:11-14, Titus 2:5, 1Peter 3:1-2, 5-6.
*3 Proverbs 22:6, 29:15, 17, Psalm 127:3-5, Ephesians 6:1-4, Colossians 3:20-21, Hebrews 12:9.

2/2 On their website (Welcome to), they narcissistic-eisegete the only three texts given: Luke 4:17-18a (should be 17-21) which is about Jesus, and not about you. Jeremiah 32:39 (should be 37-(40)-44) which is about the Jews, not your little heart aches. Matthew 22:37 (should be 34-40) which is law - short of Heaven we will break these two commandments often. A better treatment would be to study law and grace, Romans 3:9-8:(1)-39, Galatians 3:23-29, James 2:8-12.


Caveman Before Adam
  
No! There are parallel verses in the first and second chapters of Genesis that concern the one and only creation of man, 1:26-31, 2:7,8, 15-25. In 3:20, "And Adam called his wife's name Eve," (H2332 Chavvah lifegiver) "because she was the mother of all living". H2416 khah'ee living here refers to people. And Acts 17:26, ..."one blood all nations of men"...
Note: Hebrew and Greek do not share the same logical
construct, and have different grammatical rules.


Helping The Poor
  
Tithing is not a Christian practice. However, being charitable is consistent with having a new nature *1. Please be careful as to whom you give to as there are quite a few people who abuse charity *2. Yet - remember worthy Elders, 1Timothy 5:16-18.
*1 Deuteronomy 15:7-11, Romans 12:8, 2Corinthians 8:8, 9:5-7, Galatians 2:10, 1Peter 4:9, 1John 3:17.
*2 Ephesians 4:28, 1Thessalonians 4:11-12, 2Thesalonians 3:10-15.

When To Join A Church
  
...A bit of an oxymoron. Should the dead be allowed to vote in Chicago? Can one join a fraternity without an invitation? Would a cheating spouse be faithful to her vows?
The purpose of the Church meeting is for Christian(s) fellowship, to be taught Christian Doctrine, and to do Christian business. Paul knew the difference between the Synagogue, the Areopagus, and a Believers Meeting. In my opinion, we should as well.
Acts 2:46-47, Romans 16:17, 1Corinthians 5:1-13, 2Corinthians 6:14-18, 1Thesalonians 5:5, 1John 1:7, 2John 1::7-11.


Where Did Cluny Go
  
learner2: Jesus is having a discussion with Nicodemus in John 3:1-21. In verse 8, the Lord compares the Holy Spirits effect on a persons life to the movement of wind. Nicodemus could see the winds consequence, even if he did not fully understand the study of Anemology. Here list (G2309 thelo) means desire. Some Bible versions translate the word as desire, pleases, wants to, wills, or wishes.
Cluny: Only 60+ comments to go!
