Explain Luke 1:26-28
Simple, she was asking how conceiving a child was possible without sex?

Explain Acts 8:37
Act 8:37 -is included in The Textus Receptus, The Stephanus' edition from 1550. Which one does the Orthodox Church use Cluny?

Explain Acts 8:37
"Is it in your Bible?" Yes. I see no reason to exclude it. Acts 8:37 is backed by Rom 10:9. Should that verse be excluded as well? What version of the bible is the verse not found? How exactly is a sinners prayer defined Nicole?

Living Through Tribulation
"Kathr, Not to nit pick, but the word is spelled BOWLS. Your spelling leads me to think about the large intestine!---Monk_Brendan on 11/7/18" Sound like arrogant, condescending nit picking, to me.

USA Foreign Invasion
Cluny is correct as anyone born on that continent should use that label. I never attempted to argue that point. As as matter of fact, I agreed.
My dad is mixed with African, Natives and Spanish. Thank you Nicole, I just wanted to know if I could identify with you as a sister of my flesh.
'Us' are you Black? Black is the color of my shoes. My skin is more of a carmel color. I've been identified in this society, as a so called black man, "Negro", "colored", "n----". I have recently discovered, through meditating upon scripture, my true identity, and embraced it. All praises to the Father.
"That's why I do not call myself 'African american'." Good for you Nicole.

USA Foreign Invasion
"And you would be wrong" Did you not read my post? I said "If they are natives (belonging by birth to a people regarded as indigenous to a certain place) of Egypt."
"They look like southern Europeans, as were their ancestors, who had been in Egypt for generations." Apparently their ancestors usurped the land and took on the identity of the aboriginal people. Original Egyptians were dark skinned people. "DNA taken from Egyptian mummies has been decoded, producing unexpected results about the true origins of the Egyptian people. These results confirm a controversial theory that traces the First Egyptian Dynasty back to Biblical Ham, as described in the Book of Genesis."

USA Foreign Invasion
slaves are unaware of their true ethnicticity or nationality. This was meant to read slaves are unaware of their true ethnicity or nationality. In other words we are, for the most part, unaware of our origin or original identity.

USA Foreign Invasion
"My priest and his wife were born in Egypt"
I am sure, If they are natives of Egypt, they are dark skinned people.
"If that's not African-American, what is?"
Only citizens of africa who came here here voluntary, and applied for citizenship, can rightly be called "african americans". The dark skinned people brought here on ships as slaves are unaware of their true ethnicticity or nationality. Therefore has accepted whatever label placed upon us.

USA Foreign Invasion
"Because as a Black Hispanic in Alabama"
I curious nicole, which of your parents were so called "black"?

Living Through Tribulation
"Would you recognize that you are living through the tribulation?"
At some point I'm sure that I would:o)

Can I Remarry My Ex
Bukkytex biblically, if your wife departed, remained unmarried, and you did not divorce her, my answer would be yes. But If you put her away, and she left and became another man's, then my answer would be no. For in that scenario, scripture ask, "shall he [the ex-husband] return unto her [the ex-wife] again?" Personally, again, I would say no, "shall not that land be greatly polluted?" I believe it is, based on Deu 24:2-4. Let your conscience be your guide.

What Is The Gospel
The good news announcing the finished works of Jesus and the believers subsequent salvation.

Finished Work On The Cross
"One That when you accept Jesus as your savior. A phrase the Bible nowhere uses." To as many as receive Him, to them He gives the power to become, the sons of God. To receive Him, is to accept Him. The phrase you mentioned is not there, however the concept is. Personally, I prefer the word acknowledge. My problem is with one who thinks themselves able, and professes to make Jesus Lord. To me, that suggest an attempted self effort, putting ones faith in oneself to do... Jesus is Lord, and Savior, It is Finished.

Finished Work On The Cross
The finished work of Christ is simply a reference to Jesus' last words on the cross before He died. His work is finished. Why do you question that?

Release The Last Penny
If you think one's fate is sealed at the time of death."
The way I understand it Nicole, ones fate isn't sealed until one is judged at the "great white throne of judgement".
"Please explain why atonement are made for dead people?" Because all have sinned.

Release The Last Penny
Nicole one last thought concerning purgatory, Jesus offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, [that's what the expiatory sacrifices of the O.T. foreshadowed], then sat down in the complete power and authority of the Father. And If we sin wilfully, through unbelief, after that we have received the knowledge of that truth, there remains no more sacrifice for sins. The only sacrifice remaining is of praise continually, which is the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to Him for what He has done for us as believers. For the believer knows that he was manifested to take away our sins. [Expiation is for the atonement of sins, of both the living and the dead who will believe]. Final payment has been made, the sin debt satisfied.

Release The Last Penny
Please tell me what do you think Expiatory means? Nicole
Webster: Expiatory-able to make atonement, offered by way of expiation.
Expiation-the means by which atonement or reparation is made.
Reparation-the making of amends for wrong or injury done:
Strongs: Atonement-to satisfy a debt, to appease, pardon, or purge sin.
The high priests of the O.T. offered sacrifices every year, for his own sins, and for the people. But Jesus died and rose again that He may be Lord of both the living and the dead. He is the expiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world. [potential believers of every nation, both the living and the dead]. What is your definition, and where did you find it?

Release The Last Penny
"Expiatory sacrifices were ONLY for the dead not the living."
You don't really believe this do you Nicole? If so, why?

Release The Last Penny
Nicole verses 44-46 sums up verses 40-43 better than I ever could. "If he were not expecting the fallen to rise again, it would have been superfluous and foolish to pray for the dead. But if he did this with a view to the splendid reward that awaits those who had gone to rest in godliness, it was a holy and pious thought. Thus he made atonement for the dead that they might be absolved from their sin." The verses, in my view, demonstrates the authors belief in the resurrection, and the possibility that somehow redemption was possible for the sin of those who had died. That possibility was realized through the atoning sacrifice of Jesus. All praises to the Father, for it is a given that all have sinned.
