You constantly violate "Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor"?
---StrongAxe on 9/18/21

Ohhh no. Have been very careful there. You are proud, defending and promoting who you stand and link with.
Eat some scripture to go along with that democratic/ commie whine.

Pro 28:21To have respect of persons is not good: for for a piece of bread that man will transgress.

Bye. Gotta go to work, so canaliens like you can play on computer all day.
---Trav on 9/22/21


Why should I pick one that applies to me? What evidence do you have that ANY of them apply to me, other than your own vile imaginations? Why don't YOU pick one that applies to YOU?

So you support special interests financially right. Which ones? Defund the police?

I support no "special interests" financially. Once again, YOU TOTALLY MAKE UP LIES about other people based on ZERO EVIDENCE. You constantly violate "Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor"? You do that against me in almost every single post!
---StrongAxe on 9/18/21

What "platforms by association" does 1 Cor 6:9 apply to?
---StrongAxe on 9/17/21

Sure its our business. If you want to communicate what a pure and proper 10 commandment Judge an Vessel you and the Democratic platforms are. That you cannot even vote for as a foreigner. But will promote blindly like a SS Corporal.

I asked you to pick one below that fit mr not specific.
1Co 6:9Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

So you support special interests financially right. Which ones? Defund the police?
---Trav on 9/18/21


First you call me a dog, then a wolf, then a weasel? Why so obsessed with calling people animals?

Even though none of your business, I don't march or rally with any special interests. Asked and answered. Now it's your turn.

What "platforms by association" does 1 Cor 6:9 apply to? Say SPECIFICALLY which one.

"Defund the police" means "Instead of having police do EVERYTHING, offload their non-violent responsibilities. Domestic disputes, to counselors trained in psychology, not SWAT teams". You don't need gun-toting cops checking parking meters. When someone calls 911 for a wellness check on grandma, medics help grandma instead of trigger-happy cops accidentally shooting her.
---StrongAxe on 9/17/21

You wrote: I ask yes no questions and you run.
---StrongAxe on 9/15/21

Be specific, be specific. Ha you weasel around and through every topic mr specific.
You be specific what special interest groups do you march with, support, rally with mr specific weasel. Have we seen you on news burning cities down. You wanna defund the police mr specific. We already know you work this site for demo platforms trying to color them and you good. U r a disgusting person to me.
By the way 1Cor 6:9 applies to your platforms by associations it applies to you.
Which part mostly be Specific.
---Trav on 9/17/21


You wrote: I ask yes no questions and you run.

What question, exactly, (excluding personal questions that have no relevance here, and are none of your business), have you asked that I have run from? Be specific.

Jerry outed you because he is a Man

Outed me as what, exactly? Be specific.

You say the Democrats are "the most anti-American group ever assembled in history of the US", but who gets to define WHAT "American" means? Do you think that privilege belongs to you? 7 million MORE Americans voted for Biden than Trump. I would think that the voice of the majority of ACTUAL AMERICANS, with a larger margin than in any election in history, would have a say in that question.
---StrongAxe on 9/15/21

Ok, Dave > you say the priesthood of Christ is different than the Orthodox priesthood because Christ's priesthood is like that of Melchizedek with only one priest, while the Orthodox have many.

But, Dave, we in Jesus are His "royal priesthood" > 1 Peter 2:9. And there are many of us (c:

So, I am saying the number of members in a priesthood alone is not the measure.

So, what do you find, more essential perhaps, that is a difference, please?
---Bill on 9/15/21

It was people like Trav and Jerry..
---StrongAxe on 9/13/21

I ask yes no questions and you run. Because you are a vague fearful lil guy I provoke you for truth and belief you angrily reveal a little and run. Youve revealed enough.
Jerry outed you because he is a Man, who says what he believes to your face. For sure a patriot probably ex military. You a non citizen promote the most anti American group ever assembled in history of the US.

Pro 28:1 The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.
Pro 28:4 They that forsake the law praise the wicked: but such as keep the law contend with them.
Pro 28:5 Evil men understand not judgment: but they that seek the LORD understand all things.
---Trav on 9/14/21


I'm sorry to see you go, but good luck on your journey.

We HAVE had decent discussions here for years - until Certain People started hijacking every single blog discussion into politics and unfounded personal accusations. It wasn't kathr and I that did that. It was people like Trav and Jerry. You see how Trav accuses me of vague things and then refuses to say what those things are.

Also, there were others like the other David (with 4 digits after his name that I can't remember) who hijacked most blogs into a discussion about the deity of Christ, or other topics Jehovah's Witnesses like.
---StrongAxe on 9/13/21

See you in a few months, my friend.
---David on 9/13/21

Understand completely. See you in a few perhaps. May you be blessed in every manner.
Ive dusted my feet of both of em. Just gonna keep posting scripture too GODs flock like yourself. Some will meditate. Some not.
Ya gotta a good heart David. Too clean for the mire.
Psa 69:14Deliver me out of the mire, and let me not sink: let me be delivered from them that hate me, and out of the deep waters.

Understand: My posted scriptures provoke a modern world. As I was provoked 25 yrs ago and set to prove my provoker mislead using scripture. (Didnt happen)

David again bearing false witness before deciding to leave. David is leaving because David was caught in his sin of slander and false doctrine, and couldn't apologize for any of his sin here. Rather then repent and confess his sin, which those who claim to be sinless cannot do, because it would be admitting he's not perfect.

When David and Trav decided to bring these threads to rock bottom, Trav falling in a whole David dug for Strongaxe, calling StrongAxe a FILTHY NAME and pointing this out to him , he called it hateful. Nothing about Trav hateful words to Strongaxe, which I find appalling .

Well David, good riddance to you who's pride refuses to apologize for all the slander and trouble making you posted and caused here.
---kathr4453 on 9/13/21

There is no such word a psychophant. Trav thought he would be funny by changing the spelling and the definition. Sycophant is the correct word, and is not Trav FILTHY definition. It's sad David didn't jump in and correct Trav here, thinking Trav is a saint who can do no wrong.

Because this childish behavior continues, and those who call it out are accused of being hateful, is calling evil good and good evil in my book.

So seeing David and Trav have brought this site to took bottom, I have decided to leave.

God bless you all.
---kathr4453 on 9/13/21

There is no such word as "psychophant". You just made it up
Remove the beam from your own eye before criticizing the speck in others'.
---StrongAxe on 9/11/21

Lol. I regret I didnt and wish I had made up this appropriate word and definition. Found it online and realized how appropriate it fit. Either version.

Remove the beam? Uhhhh like you judging a previous president has broke all ten commandments? But this same sas judge promotes abortion platforms etc.

I could start a liberal Pharisee saw mill and lumber yard with your eyeballs.

Joh 7:24Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.

I have. Your platforms testimonies.
---Trav on 9/12/21

It's been fun over the years, but Kathrine has ruined CN for me and for many others that you don't see here anymore. So I have decided to walk away from CN due to Kathrines scathing hateful posts.

Hopefully you will be wise and do the same. When you and I are gone, Kathrine and StrongAxe will only have each other. And since they are of one mind, they will have no one to argue with and eventually leave CN Then, in a few months, we can have mature, Bible discussions, using multiple witnesses in the Bible.

See you in a few months, my friend. And be easy on StrongAxe..I still think he's a pretty good guy.
---David on 9/13/21

The word sycophant came from early Greek meaning a slanderer. In Early English 1600's also meant slanderer.

So I think we've hit rock bottom here thanks to Trav and David actually being the very thing they have accused another of being.

I find it interesting God wants us all to be of one kind and saying the same thing, and when folks here do, walla, the sinless make not only slanderous accusations, but seem to be upset at Gods will on top of it.

1 Corinthians 1:10 is not in either of their bibles.

How can discussions continue when theirs is void of ...let's say , 1 Corinthians 1:10 for starters? The jealousy of David is so evil, a sycophant fell right in David's sin filled trap. BRAVO.
---kathr4453 on 9/11/21


The dictionary definition of "sycophant" says nothing about mental illness. There is no such word as "psychophant". You just made it up just to insult me, which seems par for the course.

So now, not only are you the world's foremost expert on scriptural interpretation, you are also medically qualified to pronounce diagnoses of mental illness over the internet? You're positively delusional. Look in a mirror. Remove the beam from your own eye before criticizing the speck in others'.

Whatever beliefs I may have like that are not relevant here, because they wouldn't be supported by scripture.

No, I am not "one of Kathrine's sycophants".
---StrongAxe on 9/9/21

Hmmm. Exactly.

Psychophant sai-ko-fant
A person suffering from a mental disorder in which contact with reality is lost or highly distorted, and which is characterized by unembarrassed fawning over the current administration and its lackeys.

Synonyms for sycophant
apple-polisher, bootlicker, fawner, flunky, lickspittle, suck-up, toady.

Neither Catholic or Orthodox priests kill bulls and goats daily. About the only group that I'm aware of that still practices animal sacrifices is Santeria - a strange mixture of Catholicism and Voodoo.
---StrongAxe on 9/10/21

So to conclude the veil that was between the outer and inner sanctuary was a type and shadow of Jesus... His flesh, and Jesus once and for all by his own blood opened the way to God the Father for ALL to be able to come boldly to the throne of Grace. That's what it means that no one can come to the Father except THROUGH HIS SON JESUS CHRIST. So NOW the way into the Holy of Holies is open for ANYONE WHO COMES THROUGH CHRIST. There is no other way to God. But we have to be washed once and for all in the blood of Jesus. And that is BY FAITH, not by some earthly priest claiming he holds the key. It's also what ENTERING INTO HIS REST MEANS AS WELL.
---kathr4453 on 9/10/21

So the actual argument against the Orthodox and RCC priesthood is that they too continually offer Jesus up over and over and over ...

Once was enough.

And seeing scripture does not teach cannibalism, we see even that verse is taken out of context. It actually means to be crucified with Christ. Something the Kingdom now folks never understood. Jesus was alluding to His death and resurrection and our identification with Jesus in death and resurrection life.. also explained in Hebrews 10... WE ENTER THROUGH THE VEIL THAT US TO SAY HIS FLESH. If you study all of Hebrews it will explain...that before Jesus death and resurrection ONLY THE HIGH PRIEST could enter THROUGH THE VEIL, but not without blood. That is OVER.

This is absolutely true David, but you said you asked the question solely hoping I would attack Strongaxe. Seeing Strongaxe is not Orthodox, and does not kill bulls and goats daily for the sins of the people. I didn't think you actually wanted the correct answer.

You see Hebrews 10, having to do with the Blood of Jesus Christ was not just to cover sin. You however treat the Blood of Jesus the same way the OT used the blood of animals, as a temporary covering.

So there is so much more to the Priesthood than you understand.

Every word of Hebrews 10 goes into a deeper understanding that Jesus offered His own blood ONCE AND FOR ALL.
---kathr4453 on 9/10/21

Ahhh...someone who wants to actually wants to have a discussion.

What Priest was Jesus compared to in Hebrews 7?
It was Melchizedek.
Was the order of Melchizedek a priesthood of many priests?
No, the priesthood was changed, the order of Aaron was a priesthood with many priests, much like the Orthodox and Catholic churches we see today.

And those priests truly were many, because they were not suffered to continue by reason of death, but this Man, because He continueth forever, hath an unchangeable priesthood.
(Hebrews 7:23-24)
---David on 9/10/21

David, how do you think Orthodox people's priesthood is like to the Levitical priesthood?

The Orthodox priests minister communion which they consider to be the body and blood of Jesus, but the Levitical priests did not have this.

That alone is a big difference. So, what do you have in mind that makes the Levitical and Orthodox priesthoods similar, please?
---Bill on 9/9/21

David, you have proved over and over your ignorance of scripture and what others believe. Your false accusation prove you have no clue what another believes.

But seeing many do know how to rightly divide the truth, and know that IN THE CHURCH AGE we need not poke out eyes or cut off hands, one can rightly divide that is not GRACE but LAW.

You are free to hack off any part of yourself that continues to sin. Will you 1) cut out your tongue? 2) OT cut off your hands so you will stop posting lies , so you can enter in. Look, I'm not going to stop you. If it keeps you from sinning all means hack away. I'll believe it when YOU do it. If you don't do it, then YOU TOO don't believe or obey EVERY WORD JESUS SAID.

Strongaxe doesn't make Jesus a liar.---kathr4453

After reflection, you are right. You have explained for us the teachings of Jesus Christ are for the 1000 year reign, and are simply not there for you. And I didn't realize, until now, that you spoke for him too. I had always thought he was Orthodox.

When seen in this context, it's not that you don't believe it, it just that it's written for someone else. My apologies again.
---David on 9/9/21

David singling out the Orthodox and excluding the RCC is a dead give away of your motives here.

Are you always so confused with who believe what? It appears so, as 100% of your false accusations are directed to the wrong person. This proves The Holy Spirit is not in you, as the Holy Spirit in you would NEVER make such a mistake OVER AND OVER AND OVER aka continuing to sin. 1John says those who CONTINUE to sin are not born of God.

Aren't your false accusations and slander SIN? Or like Jimmy Swaggart you just call mistakes? redefining sin!

Are you sure YOU aren't a follower of Jimmy Swaggart?
---kathr4453 on 9/9/21

Strongaxe doesn't make Jesus a liar. What right do you have to assault others here this way? I see your jealousy David and that is probably the most egregious sin of all. It's the very sin of hate that crucified our Lord. Yes they hated Him for ENVY. Also Matthew 5:43-44 JESUS SAID to also love your enemy. No no one here is your enemy as you may think, but you have disobeyed this command of Jesus, choosing rather to obey the verses you like. That's so phony David. Your lying about others is not loving your enemy, it's trying to get back at them, called revenge. One thing the Holy Spirit in us does is teach us self control. If you see no progress in that area, bring it to the Lord David. Don't bring it here. Stop bring hate here to this site.
---kathr4453 on 9/8/21


You wrote: You do, but without realizing it, you make the teachings of Jesus Christ a complete lie and Jesus...a liar.

Please state ONE teaching of Jesus Christ that "I make a complete lie". Quote exactly what I said that you think was offensive (and also the date, so it's easy to verify).

Hebrews 12:2
Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

David do you understand this verse? It means HE WHO HAS BEGUN A GOOD WORK IN YOU WILL CONTINUE IT UNTIL THE DAY OF JESUS CHRIST. Philippians 1:6. I'm confident of that too.

But you think you were the one to begin a good work in you and it's up to you to finish it. Totally against scripture. Totally against the New Covenant too.

So how can you make such an accusation? CHRIST IN ME THE HOPE OF GLORY. David in David.... Not going anywhere.
---kathr4453 on 9/8/21

Again David bearing false witness....

Jesus Christ is the ONLY AUTHOR AND FINISHER of Salvation. Yes the finisher too....meaning I BELIEVE IN THE FINISHED WORKS OF CHRIST. I never said my faith is in the finished works of Paul.

David, I know you are lying to try to get me to sin or something. Sorry.....your the one here in bondage to bondage to continually breaking the 9th commandment. Romans 2 have a awful lot to say about folks like yourself. You stick out there like a sore thumb. Romans 2:14-23 is GOD'S WORD AS A WITNESS AGAINST YOU DAVID. I'll pray for you that your punishment won't be so severe. ASK GOD TO DELIVER YOU FROM SIN, rather than trying to deliver yourself. Your efforts are failing miserably.

However, we seem to agree on important fundamentals.---StrongAxe on 9/7/21

You do, but without realizing it, you make the teachings of Jesus Christ a complete lie and Jesus...a liar. And for some reason, that doesn't seem to bother either of you.

Kathrine doesn't even acknowledge Jesus Christ as the Author of Salvation. Paul is her Author.
---David on 9/8/21

Not that I am calling you a liar, but I don't have much faith in the word of those who do not put themselves under the Laws of God.

Note the pharisee irony's. Most recent tell/ mark is his propaganda against the last president repeatedly saying, he broke all Ten commandments. (himself evidently being pure)
Then prostrates hisself before present evil admin. Exposed.
There are no scales unless it favors his hidden purposes.
What makes one angry also exposes and controls. Scripture.

After researching Jimmy Swaggart doctrine...or rather Pentecostal doctrine, David would fit right in. They go by their feelings more than beliefs. They don't believe in OSAS. They are more about having out of body experiences than being grounded by the Word of God.

So I find it even more interesting that David would use this to attack and insult another without any grounds.

It just shows David himself has no clue what others believe and just pulls bullets out of nowhere. Fake bullets can't hurt a flea.

Atleast study what someone teaches and believes before using them as the jawbone of an ass to attack another. Or did David just make himself the jawbone of an ass to attack others? WHATEVER. ITS GETTING OLD.
---kathr4453 on 9/7/21

I just looked up THE JIMMY SWAGGART DOCTRINE. Or rather their statement of faith.

I'd like to know exactly what bullet points David disagrees with and for him to support his rejection with supporting scripture of why he disagrees with what they believe.

Seeing you're the one who brought up Jimmy Swaggart....let's hear it. Maybe then we can get a clearer understanding of what you David do and do not believe.

Let's start with the basics first,

1) Do you believe in the Deity of Christ....YES OR NO.

2) Do you believe Jesus took our sin upon Him and died in our place? YES OR NO
---kathr4453 on 9/7/21


No, I don't follow Swaggart. I think he's a mean self-righteous blowhard nobody should follow.

I'm curious what makes you think I'm Orthodox, or follow Jimmy Swaggart? I never said anything about following either one. Why do you jump to conclusions trying to pigeonhole people?

I don't agree with kathr's opinions on everything. However, we seem to agree on important fundamentals. We also agree that certain people here (you can guess who) have extremist views, and are constantly argumentative, and think they alone seem to possess a monopoly on truth - and that everyone who disagrees with them must be evil, unsaved, apostate, communist, and any number of other pejorative terms that they can come up with without evidence.
---StrongAxe on 9/7/21

What's funny is the Orthodox do put themselves under the laws of God, yet David still bashes them. My goodness, does this person actually go back and read and meditate on some of his baffoonery. No matter what one says, David will move his goal post thinking he's trapped another again in his INQUISITION.

David, tell us, who DO YOU APPROVE OF? What doctrine or church do you approve of besides the Gospel of David preached in the only CHURCH OF DAVID, having no other members except he and his wife.

Other churches have kicked him out, asking him not to come back. Is that because of his doctrine or his stalking? David, have you ever had a restraining order taken out on you ?

David and his overblown self importance of becoming the inquisition.

David, Strongaxe and I don't agree 100% on everything. But I think what you seem to hate, or are maybe jealous of is that we can have respect for one another's differences and that's something you just can't do.

What does Jimmy Swaggart have to do with this conversation? Where do you come up with your ideas? First you hate protestants and accuse me of being a protestant. WRONG.

Then you bring the accusation of being charismatic? A totally different doctrine.

The thing is David, you keep drawing at straws and totally miss the mark.

Why do you insist all but you follow the teachings of man? Aren't YOU A MAN?

Just more bullying.
---kathr4453 on 9/6/21

Well then, my apologies sir, if you are telling the truth. Not that I am calling you a liar, but I don't have much faith in the word of those who do not put themselves under the Laws of God.

Funny how all this time I thought you were. But now that I think about it, you and Kathrine do seem to hold each others hands on every topic pertaining to God. Do you follow the Jimmy Swaggart Doctrine too?
---David on 9/6/21

From your erroneous assumption on the other blog about my "doctrine" involving "many priests", and from your creation of this topic, I presume that you think that I am Orthodox, which I am not, and I have never said that I was. We do have a couple of Orthodox priests who use these blogs (Cluny and Brendan) but they have not posted here since early 2020, as neither one of them currently has internet access where they live.
