Correct Bible Interpretation
  
jerry6593:

Use some common sense! Do you work six days each and every week, 52 weeks a year, every year of your life? If you EVER take a day off, a sick day, vacation, or retire, YOU VIOLATE THE SABBATH LAW according to you.

If you can't honestly say you have NEVER done ANY of the above, you are a hypocrite, requiring others to do what you cannot.

Paul said we are not under the law. The Ten Commandments no longer apply to us. The Two Commandments (i.e. Love God and your neighbor) covers 9 of them anyway. The ONLY ONE LEFT is the Sabbath one, which seems THE most important one to you.

Are you smarter than Paul, who said "Let each be persuaded in his own mind"?

mike:

Read ALL Romans 14. It's about making up your OWN MIND and not judging others for making up THEIRS.

2-3. Meat eaters+vegetarians SHOULD NOT JUDGE EACH OTHER.
4. JUDGE NOT another's servant.
5-9. People respect different days. LET EACH BE PERSUADED IN HIS OWN MIND.
10-13. DON'T JUDGE YOUR BROTHER. Let God judge.
14-18,22-23. Things are unclean ONLY IF YOU THINK THEY ARE.

God made the Sabbath holy. Nowhere did he make ANY day UNHOLY. No commandment to WORSHIP on Sabbath. No forbiddence to WORSHIP any other day.

So, per Romans 14:5 and Colossians 2:16, WHY DO YOU JUDGE ME? Your condemnations swallow camels while choking on gnats of the Law.

When moderators are on vacation, the system eats all posts and never posts them.

Pharisees had long memories about people's sins, so once a thief/prostitute, always a thief/prostitute. Evangelicals and Catholics can have long memories too.

The good film that illustrates that is Mass Appeal, about a young seminarian who had "been to Paree" (with both "Parisiettes" and "Parisiens") being thrown by a bishop who couldn't get over the "Parisiens" part, even though the boy had taken a vow of celibacy. As his defender said, "Celibacy is celibacy, even if your thing happens to be - goats!", but the Bishop refused to see that.


My Job Is Harder
  
Nicole_Lacey:

"Leftists" ARE concerned about people who work hard but are paid little for it. If you haven't been hearing the constant cries for raising the minimum wage, you haven't been paying attention. Of course, Congress keeps voting for raising their own pay while voting against raising the minimum wage. Leftists are for raising minimum wage. Rightists are against it. Draw your own conclusions.


Finish It Here June 2019
  
Nicole_Lacey:

Why so medically precise? Invading barbarians (not surgeons with scalpels) would run people through with swords, cutting bellies open, spilling out guts. They weren't particular about just which parts spilled out. Dead is dead.

All of Hosea 13 is NOT about natural consequences of sin, but about God PERSONALLY punishing sin.

What is this about "hot stoves" and getting burned? Half your last message was entirely about that. What "power" did you have make a "stove" not burn me? That whole thing made no sense.

Also, read Businessinsider: "Women could get up to 30 years in prison for having a miscarriage under Georgia's harsh new abortion law"


How To Protect Family
  
Nicole_Lacey:

You wrote: Even teaching children other Faiths at school to their children.

What schools are teaching "other faiths" at school to children? (And I'm not talking about Comparative Religion classes, which are generallly voluntary, and provide an abstract perspective on all religions, but don't specifically teach any of them as "the right one". E.g. Saying "Islam teaches that Muhammed was a prophet" is abstract, while saying "Muhammed was a prophet" is indoctrination.)


Can Demons Talk About Jesus

Nobody has posted on this particular blog for almost 12 years. All of the people who posted on this one are long gone. The only one I personally recognize is mima, and his last post on any blog was in 2011.


Alabama Abortion Law
  
Nicole_Lacey:

God tells Samaria will happen BECAUSE of their attitude. This is a cause-and-effect thing. Pregnant women would be disemboweled - either because of a specific judgment of God made at that time, or as a consequence of natural law God instituted in the beginning. So which is it?

In both cases, their "holy innocent" children would be killed by no fault of their own, and those deaths will be based on decisions God made, either then, or at the beginning of time.

God didn't "allow" children to die in the flood. HE SPECIFICALLY SENT the flood. He COULD have sent a plague that killed only sinners (like he sent to Egypt to target only firstborn), but he didn't.

Nicole_Lacey:

How have I become a "church lady" against you?

I didn't give you a choice between hypocritical Pharisees on one side, and hypocritical "Church Ladies" on the other (which would have implied that you're a hypocrite no matter which one you choose - a bit like the "have you stopped beating your wife?" question).

I gave you a choice between Jesus on one side, and hypocritical Pharisees and "Church Ladies" on the other.


Baptism In The Epistles
  
Cluny:

You wrote: To be more precise, StrongAxe, they believe that sometimes, He is Father, sometimes He is Son, sometimes He is Holy Spirit.

No. Actually they believe he is ALWAYS simultaneously the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Just as Trinitarians have their "mystery" of how Father, Son, and Holy Spirit can all be God and yet not the same as each other, Oneness have their "mystery" of how Father, Son, and Holy Spirit can all be one and the same, even when they're obviously not.

Cluny:

I don't know. I leave biology and medicine to those who are actually trained in those fields. I don't ask a doctor how to pray, nor a priest how to perform an appendectomy.


Nicole_Lacey:

Don't you get it? 50%+ percent of fertilized eggs don't implant TOTALLY INDEPENDENT of womens' actions, without any sharp spears. It's how nature works. This also happens in undeveloped nations without access to birth control.

Regardless of being "holy innocents", God allows AT LEAST HALF of them to die by the laws of nature.

PICK YOUR PARADIGM. If you pick the Bible as your reference, understand God cares less about babies than you do, since he kills half of them. Are you holier than God?


Christian Symbolism Matrix
  
Nicole_Lacey:

I never said ignore sins or crimes. I said look past them and see good. When Pharisees brought Jesus to the woman caught in adultery, they were about to stone her, yet he saw past her sin, and did not condemn her. THAT'S what I'm talking about. Judgmental Pharisees cannot see past the sin.

When he met the woman at the well, he said she had several husbands, and was living with a man not her husband. He didn't condemn her for being a serial adulteress.

He had thieves and prostitutes among his followers. That didn't bother Jesus, but it DID bother the Pharisees who constantly condemned him for allowing such disreputable rabble around him.

Love like Jesus. Don't hate like the Pharisees.


Correct Bible Interpretation
  
jerry6593:

Yes. "REMEMBER the sabbath, and KEEP it holy" does not mention WORSHIP.

"Six days shall thou labor" is not a REQUIREMENT to work - it's PERMISSION to work. Otherwise, everyone who is sick, or takes a vacation, or retires, or is unemployed, or otherwise can't work six days a week, is breaking the sabbath. Do you work 304 days a year?

Let's not go by what you or I believe. Look at Paul who ACTUALLY WROTE SCRIPTURE. He said some hold some days more holy than others, while others hold all days equally holy, and LET EACH BE PERSUADED IN HIS OWN MIND. He also said LET NO ONE JUDGE YOU with respect to sabbaths.

So why do you judge others on the Sabbath, or which days they keep holy?


Alabama Abortion Law
  
Nicole_Lacey:

You wrote: Abortion is a deliberate action. Intentionally seeking to kill a baby.

God DESIGNED laws of nature, and by those very laws 50%+ of fertilized eggs don't implant, so 50%+ of conceived human beings are killed shortly after conception.

I said nothing about Herod. Why did you bring him up?

If a pregnant wife lied and said she didn't commit adultery, she miscarries, and her baby dies. BY LAW, the baby pays the price for the mother's adultery and lying.

Hosea 13:16 curses Samaria for rebelling against God - infants dashed to pieces, pregnant women ripped up.

Also, don't forget the Flood, which, except for 8 adults, killed all men, women (including pregnant ones), and children.

Nicole_Lacey:

Most of them won't repent. However, a small number will, but they will only be given a chance if someone is willing to give them one, by seeing the good in them. Someone who sees only the bad will immediately give up on them and abandon them to prison.

By "Church Lady" I reference the stereotype of sanctimonious pharisaical hypocrites who boast how holy they are, while gossiping and condeming others. The archetypical example is Dana Carvey's "Church Lady" on SNL. Betty Bowers "America's Best Christian" is more modern example.

By no means am I saying that most ladies in church are like that, but the few who are give the rest a bad name.


Baptism In The Epistles
  
Cluny:

Oneness Pentecostals make the mistake of believing Son and Father are one and the same. There are many places where the Son is shown as distinct from the Father, both in person and in attributes:
"The Lord said to My Lord, 'I will make your enemies a footstool'"
The Father sent the Spirit down to Jesus
"Behold my son, in whom I am well pleased"
"Why do you call me good? Only God is good."
"I know not the day and hour. Only the Father knows."
"Take this cup away from me".

10th grade biology doesn't say anything about when a soul enters a body.

Google: fertilized eggs fail to implant

UCSF Medical Center: Conception: How It Works
In nature, 50 percent of all fertilized eggs are lost before a woman's missed menses.

NCBI: Early embryo mortality in natural human reproduction: What the data say:
A recent re-analysis of hCG study data concluded that approximately 40-60% of embryos may be lost between fertilisation and birth

PBS: NOVA: Life's Greatest Miracle
It's estimated that more than 50 percent of all fertilized eggs fail to develop.

Who are you talking to? NOBODY here worships a "sun god". And what does this have to do with the blog topic, or anything being discussed here?


Correct Bible Interpretation
  
mike:

God didn't COMMAND people to worthip on the 7th day either. The sabbath is not a day of WORSHIP. it is a day of REST. The Bible has very clear rules for the sabbath - it prohibits work, commerce, travel, lighting fires. It does NOT COMMAND anything.

People who go to church on Sunday are not worshipping the Sun, any more than people who go to church on Saturday are worshipping Saturn.

Why is this SUCH an important deal for you? Do you not get that some people consider some days more important than others, but others consider all days equally holy - and LET EACH BE PERSUADED IN HIS OWN MIND?

Do you not get that we are NOT TO ALLOW anyone to judge us with respect to food, SABBATHS, or holy days?
