Are Christmas Trees Pagan
  
Naulon,
Satan is 'King of the Air' also referred to as
Ephesians 2:2 - in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience.
Why did Herod have to play it safe? Two years is a long time.
The wise men were astrologers, and Herod wanted them to track the star for him. Why does God hate astrologers, or those associated with divination? Matthew2:7-8, Deuteronomy 18:10-12


Witness To A Jehovah Witness
  
StrongAxe-
That is just the point. Yes I've known many and what you say is true, but many others of different denominations go through the motions as well. I just have a hard time when Christians gang up on other Christians. I just think that when new information comes to you, it is worthwhile to look into it if it seems as though there might be some truth to it. I have listed to these people's teachings on different occasions and do see some truth to what they say. I can never pretend to know it all, and I will always seek knowledge, so long as it makes sense. It is called keeping an open mind. That's all.


Are Christmas Trees Pagan
  
"When in Rome to do as the Romans" to save them, yea, but who are you saving by having a Christmas tree?

When you celebrate Christmas, do you recall that Herod had all of those children killed?

The weather was also mild, not wintertime.

Herod's decree went out to children up to 2 years old because Jesus was already born.

Why was the star guiding the wise men to Jesus if they were sent by Herod? And who is the "King of the Air"?


Are Christmas Trees Pagan
  
You can rationalize your good intentions at the use of a tree for Christmas, but it is not having anything to do with Christ's birth- for what does this mean?
Jeremiah 10:2-4

Thus says the Lord: Learn not the way of the nations, nor be dismayed at the signs of the heavens because the nations are dismayed at them, for the customs of the peoples are vanity. A tree from the forest is cut down and worked with an axe by the hands of a craftsman. They decorate it with silver and gold, they fasten it with hammer and nails so that it cannot move.


I Hate My Husband
  
I was married to an abusive person. I do not believe in divorce but I could not have my kids seeing abuse. My current husband does not like to work. He lied about me and got me arrested with the intent of taking my house and kids away from me!I am all my kids have and they need their mommy in one piece. They are my priority - and I do believe that God helps those who help themselves. I do not have all the answers but I do believe God gave my children to me and expects me to love and protect them. I might have to answer for this some day - I kind of feel like it's one of those situations that if you can, work it out, but laws were created for people, not people for laws. Pray,and ask for help. Most of all, believe, it will be alright.


Witness To A Jehovah Witness
  
JW's are only considered a cult in much the same way others in the past were, when they tried to change long standing beliefs and paradigms Think about the concepts of the Earth being flat or round, or it being the center of the universe Vs. the Sun - what do you think those thinkers went through? Arrests? Death? But they were right. As Christians, it is our duty to keep on seeking out new information. Proverbs 2:4 The JW's are very dedicated to their beliefs. For the majority of ones I knew, they didn't go to church and then go home to beat their wives, gamble or get drunk. They have integrity to their beliefs shadowed in their lifestyles. No they are not perfect but you can learn a lot - some of it is not what you may want to hear.


What If Big Bang Is True
  
The big bang does not conflict with the great flood. The big bang might have been the force in which God created the universe- the flood would have occurred after that, when the earth was populated. So it is quite conceivable to have fossils of clams in the desert due to this and the continental drift.


Why Are Todays Kids Mean
  
2Timothy 3,1-5 talks about the Last Days. Children would be disobedient and man would lose his natural affection... Satan was cast out of heaven to the earth, Rev:12:7,9,12, coming down angry knowing he has a short period of time. He tried to spoil the family unit in the Garden of Eden. People have to work 2 jobs to survive and spend less and less time with their children. Our most vulnerable and precious are under attack, and we are so wrapped up in this world, we can't see what's going on...


Is Jesus God
  
Abraham's near sacrifice of his only son, Isaac, in the Old Testament, was fulfilled in New. It was the ultimate test of love. Isaac was substituted by a ram ( Jesus would later be the Lamb) The ultimate sacrifice of God was the sacrifice of his perfect son, Jesus, before he was even known to the sinners he was saving. If God was the same person as Jesus, he didn't need a son figure. If they are the same person, this invalidates a loving God's sacrifice of the one he holds most dear.


Jehovah Witnesses Theology
  
Andrea- I compare the KJV, which is what they used to use. To say the Word is God, means in a general sense, as a characteristic. We are "man", but you and I are women.
Matthew 3, 16-17 "And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water, and lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:
And lo a voice from heaven saying ,This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased..."


Was Jesus Created By God
  
Colossians 1:15 "Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature."(creation)
John 6:38 'For I came down from heaven not to do mine own will, but of him that sent me.' (17:4-5) "I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do... O Father, glorify
me with thine own self with the glory I had with thee before the world was."
Genesis 1:26 "..God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.
