How To Protect Family
  
Nicole, okay then. No problem..

Nicole, the most accurate translation in Genesis is the one that I posted earlier. Please read it carefully and you will understand about the fat.

... and Abel, he hath brought, he also, from the female firstlings of his flock, even from their fat ones, and Jehovah looketh unto Abel and unto his present, - Genesis 4:4 (Young's Literal Translation)

Kat453, yours is the standard interpretation. And it's okay with me if you want to believe that. You will notice, however, that the word sacrifice is not used. Also later in the Bible when sacrifices were made, people got to eat some of it. But at that time everybody was a vegetarian. So it seems odd to me that God would ask for dead meat.

Nicole, Cluny is not confusing me. If you'd rather that I don't use the word Rome, I won't. I will restate what I said.

The Byzantine Catholic Church is in communion with Pope Francis. You yourself are permitted to attend a Byzantine Catholic mass and receive communion there.

I hope that straightened things out.

I would keep the Sabbath if it was required. The problem is, there are no instructions in the New Testament on how to keep it. And the instructions in the Old Testament require things like not being able to cook or drive a car (i.e., lighting fires is forbidden), and demand the death penalty for non-compliance.

There is nothing in Genesis 4 about Abel offering a blood sacrifice. Blood is not mentioned, and neither is fire.

It does not seem clear in Genesis 4 that Cain's brother Abel killed his offering or burnt it.

...and Abel, he hath brought, he also, from the female firstlings of his flock, even from their fat ones, and Jehovah looketh unto Abel and unto his present... - Genesis 4:4 (Young's Literal Translation)


Spanking Teenage Boys
  
Being hit by my parents just made me afraid of them. My basic response to my parents was always fear. But I guess that's what we're supposed to do, fear our parents and fear God.

Cluny, what's it about? Why you think we should read it?

If a theology states that God knows in advance who is going to lose his soul but He doesn't do anything about it, there is something terribly wrong with that theology.


Famous Quotations Started
  
We're out of the woods

Out of difficulties, danger or trouble, as in We're through the worst of the recession-we're out of the woods now, or That pneumonia was serious, but Charles is finally out of the woods. This expression, alluding to having been lost in a forest, dates from Roman times, it was first recorded in English in 1792.

Why do you pass judgment on your brother? Or you, why do you despise your brother? For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God, for it is written, As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. So then each of us will give an account of himself to God. - Romans 14:10-12

Cluny, oh sorry. I saw it on Amazon.

Nicole, I agree... No one gets a pass...

Cluny, I'm sure it will be fascinating. She has worked so hard against the death penalty all these years.

Cluny, River of Fire looks good. I really do like Sr Helen Prejean.


Correct Bible Interpretation
  
Cluny, everything's cool. No problem.

\\Jesus did not come to save us from hell. He came to save us from our sins.\\

I see no contradiction. They are two parts of the same thing.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 7/9/19

Cluny, so true, hell being what we inflict on each other and ourselves through our sins.
