Can I Remarry My Ex
  
\\4 Her former husband, which sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after that she is defiled, for that is abomination before the Lord...\\

This passage clearly does not apply, as the woman left of her own accord. She was not driven away and sent back to her family.

And I really doubt she was given a bill of divorcement.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

//If the Colorado River cut the Grand Canyon, through its erosive powers, as science believes, All Rivers, should be creating Canyons.//


Non sequitur.


\\ If that doesnt sound logical to you, it does to me. ]]

Fortunately, most people do not go by what seems logical to you.

I'm one of them.

Some rivers carve canyons, some don't.

How many canyons do you say were created by floods, and can you give geological evidence for your assertions?

I was brought up to address adults as "ma'am" and "sir."

There was no association with slavery. It was simply considered to be good manners, which can't be legislated.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

I, on the other hand, see the only plausible explanation to the creation of places like the Grand Canyon and sand dunes in the Sahara Desert, to be a great Flood. //

Please give the geological evidence that supports your view, David.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

It is possible that Rosemarie experienced an aura, which some people have before migraines or similar neurological event.

The Sahara was a grassy meadow supporting all kind of fauna after the time of the flood.

The Grand Canyon was carved by the Colorado River.

Unlike you, David, I have no problem with God working through natural processes that He Himself decreed.

Global warming is happening on Mars, but there are no humans there to take the blame.

//My issue is why do translators insist on changing and removing God's name when translating from Hebrew to English.//'

The real question is whether "Jehovah" was God's personal name to start with.

Since it isn't, there is really no difference between using it and using LORD (all in caps) in English.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

I'm willing to do this, David.

If a translation team were to ask me, I would say that for the sake of weaker brethren who would be offended at the omission of Jehovah from the OT, Use either it or YHVH for the Tetragrammaton.

How's that?

Glory to Jesus Christ!

//Afterall, Orthodoxy is simply Catholicism without a Pope.//

If you think that, you clearly know nothing about either church.

Following the precedent set by the KJV, the NKJV in the OT uses LORD all in capitals for YHVH.

You've been told this repeatedly.

Whether this is a good idea can be debated.

FWIW, the form "Jehovah" is from Latin. Curiously YHVH sounds like the other Latin name for the king of the deities, JOVE.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

In the original creation, God drew it from the primordial water.

After the flood, God drew Noah's family and preserved species through the water.

For the establishment of Israel, the Hebrews were drawn through the water twice: the Sea and the Jordan.

And in Baptism, we are drawn from the water.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

David, do you defend the racism and child abuse that exists in the JWs?

You might want to look up these subjects.

Rosemarie, are you taking your proper medications as directed?

On the other hand, changing God's personal name YHWH to adonai as trinitarians Cluny and StrongAxe advocate is a blatant abuse of scripture.//

Jews do it all the time when they read the Tanakh in their services. (Sometimes they might say Elohim or Ha Shem, depending on the context.)

Are they Trinitarians and abusing scripture?

Answer yes or no, and give scripture to back it up.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

// God could have simply opened up a crack in this ring and turned the flood waters into steam. //

And where did this steam go, David?

Did you think you were somehow special because you saw this?

If so, it's spiritual delusion.

Pray that God will deliver you from this satanic snare, as it is clearly leading you into spiritual pride: one of the forerunners of the sin against the Holy Spirit.

I'll bet you can't tell me where ANYTHING like this happened in the Bible.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

//The New King James version has removed God's name completely.//

WRONG AGAIN!

The NKJV renders the Hebrew YHVH as "LORD" all in caps, following the example of the 1611 one.

Doesn't it bother you to tell lies about others?

Or have you simply been misinformed?

FWIW, sometime in the last couple of decades, I saw a Jewish translation of the Hebrew Scriptures into English. Where the Divine Name appeared, it had it in Hebrew, allowing the reader to either say it or use whatever circumlocution desired.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
