Explain Daniel 3:57-88
  
The "Jews" were entrusted with the preservation of the word of God for future generations. Act 7:38 They were specifically instructed "Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you." Deu 4:2 Thus my questions on 4/18/18 which were not answered with Rom 3:2. Resulting in my question on 4/23/18, the facetiousness I was referring to in my last post was in repeatedly asking you questions that I knew you could not answer. If the apocrypha was Gods word, then it should have remained. If it was not, then it should have never been included in the first place.


Explain Daniel 3:57-88
  

"The LordJesus Christ the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity only delights in truth not lies and heresy."
That sounded like an accusation. What about my posts would you considered heresy, or a lie?


Explain Daniel 3:57-88
  
John I was simply being facetious, and it's gone on long enough. My apologies. There were good reasons for the apocrypha omission, reasons that I personally agree with. Be blessed.


Explain Daniel 3:57-88
  
Nicole I think you have misunderstood me. "It is not for me to argue your belief" spawn from the realization that you honestly believed what you were sharing, and it wasn't for me to attempt to convince you otherwise. I had already shared what I believed, and you didn't ask me a question, but rather offered a rebuttal. Which let me know that you were settled in your belief.


Explain Daniel 3:57-88
  
"Sir, the Jews were the ones entrusted with the Scriptures like Paul inspired of the Holy Spirit tells you..." How did that give them the right or authority to change or omit that which did not suit them. And I repeat, The Jews in charge of scripture didn't believe Jesus was the Christ, why should we take their word as concerning what is or is not inspired of the Father?


Explain Daniel 3:57-88
  
"Maybe you take it as a argument because you not happy with the outcome." Actually Nicole, I had no expectancy as concerning outcome. As I have said so often, one convinced against ones will is of the same opinion still. I am more than willing to debate and listen to reason, as long as I receive the same courtesy, and can see a productive exchange of viewpoints without assumptions, redundancy, or offense. I simply share, and like yourself, I believe what I share to be scripturally based, and attempt to document, fully realizing that my understanding is fallible. However, it is shared honestly.


Explain Daniel 3:57-88
  
"Jesus not only corrects them about our marriage status (which is none) in Heaven but people who died are NOT DEAD while Jesus walked on earth and during their conservation stating they were ALIVE as they spoke."
Nicole I have no idea how you received that understanding from that conversation, however It is not for me to argue your belief.


Did Paul Forgive Sins
  
"I think you would agree that such an approach by Christians in life is far from ideal as Christ is our Councillor (Isa 9:6) and there is none better." Yes I would. Since acknowledging Jesus, the Christ, as Lord and Savior, by whose strips believers were healed, there is no other place I would go, personally, for counseling. I simply do not judge, nor would I criticize, those who may not hold that confidence.


Explain Daniel 3:57-88
  
Nicole are the dead called spirits or souls? Verse 86 mentions both.

Luke 20:38 explains Mat. 22:32

"He is not a God of the dead, but of the living: for all live unto him. KJV
"He is the God of the living, not the dead, for they are all alive to him". NLT

"He is not the God of the dead, but of the living, for to him all are alive." NIV

"Now he is not God of the dead, but of the living, for all live to him" RSV

The dead does live, but only in the mind plan and purpose of the Father. Rom 14:8,9


Did Paul Forgive Sins
  
I meant this line to read "Those in Christ should be free from 'guilt'."


Did Paul Forgive Sins
  
But God is ALWAYS willing to forgive. Exactly.
Those in Christ should be free from quilt, knowing He bore our griefs, and carried our sorrow. We know that the chastisement of our peace was upon Him. We also know there is only one mediator between the Father and man, the man Christ Jesus. However I see nothing wrong with speaking with a priest, or pastor about the things that trouble you, if it helps you cope in life.


Explain Daniel 3:57-88
  
"Regarding the Jews see answer in Rom 3:2." How does that answer my question? "Let God be true but every man a liar." Rom 3:4


Did Paul Forgive Sins
  
"The man who caused all the trouble hurt all of you more than he hurt me. Most of you opposed him, and that was punishment enough. Now, however, it is time to forgive and comfort him. So I urge you now to reaffirm your love for him. When you forgive this man, I forgive him, too." Paul was calling for the forgiveness of one man, who caused trouble for them, as opposed to one who sinned against God. Sins against God, can only be forgiven by God. A man is always called to forgive sins committed against himself, for Christ sake, as one under His authority. "So that Satan will not outsmart us." NLT


Explain Daniel 3:57-88
  
"Those who read them in this sense the Jews."
The Jews in charge of scripture didn't believe Jesus was the Christ, why should we take their word as concerning what is or is not inspired of the Father?
"Because it was added later in the time when there were no prophets in Israel." And you know this how?


Explain Daniel 3:57-88
  
"They were understood to be read only for encouragement and fiction, never "Inspired." Understood by whom John? As I stated the verses make for a lovely religious chant or hymn. Question John, according to scholarship, were the verses apart of the manuscripts as being authored by Daniel? If so, why included part of the chapter, and exclude another? Who thought themselves qualified to edit the word of God? If He indeed inspired the verses to be written originally, then they were inspired, and no man had the authority to dismiss them. If they wasn't included in the originals, who do you think had the audacity to add uninspired verses to Gods word? If His word has been altered how can we know truth from fiction?


Explain Daniel 3:57-88
  
"Can you explain how you have found the understanding of Manuscript Evidence" If manuscript evidence is not readily available, it irrelevant to me. I can't comment on something I know nothing about. What I found in the NRSVCE is Dan 3:57-88, which are the verse I was originally inquiring about.


Explain Daniel 3:57-88
  
Never mind John I found what I was looking for in the New revised Standard version Catholic addition. I agree with the verses, all aspects of creation should praise and highly exalt the Creator. To answer the post question, I have no idea, makes for a lovely religious chant or hymn. Nicole how does the verses prove people are aware of their surroundings after death?


Explain Daniel 3:57-88
  
On what bases do you have when you said, "only unfounded conjecture."?? Nothing they said can be verified. They offered no solid documentation. I saw it as the formation or expression of an opinion or theory without sufficient evidence for proof.

Sir, tell us, have you ever heard of manuscripts before I mention it to you? Yes I've heard, but never seen. I have asked those who have mentioned them to point me to them or where they can be found online. So far no one has, perhaps you can and will?

many of the copies have errors and discrepancies. How do you know?


Explain Daniel 3:57-88
  
"Manuscripts are the coppies of the Original Autographs. Since we don't have the Original Autographs we do,however, have coppies upon coppies of the Original Autographs." If we don't have the originals, where did the copies originate? If the copies could be maintained why not the originals?
"For more information, see, Textual Critic Scholars Dr. James White and Dr. Daniel Wallace their lectures you can see on Youtube." I received no viable, as in practicable or workable information from watching these lectures, only unfounded conjecture. Are you sharing what you know of Father's word John or what you think based solely on what you've heard?


Explain Daniel 3:57-88
  
John all of that is beyond my knowledge. Perhaps you can provide those missing verses and where they can be found? What manuscript evidence are you referring to? Stating that there is such without documentation is useless.
