Men Wear Hats In Church
Wearing hats or not by men or women is not essential to ones salvation. If a man is not praying or prophesing, he can wear a covering without shame (Paul does not say it is a sin) I Cor. 11:4. One can wear a covering, man or woman, because there is no practice in the church of God. I Cor. 11:16.

Science And Evolution Conflict
** I'm trying to get people to think. **

I read you just fine. And I repeat. Such comments could cause others to backslide or not come to the faith at all. Please be more careful.

Nuff said.

Did Saddam Get Saved
Jack, Genesis 9:6 was pre-Mosaic law. Its very language indicates that it is universally applicable. Are we not still made in the likeness of God? If we are not, then you can claim I am wrong.

Did Saddam Get Saved
As for your comment on the 613 "Old Testament laws," it was both misleading and simplistic. The 613 laws is a reference to the Mosaic law, which was fulfilled in Christ.

And when I spoke of illegality, I was not referring to Old Testament law but the laws in the Mishna observed during that time, which were supposedly based on the law of Moses.

In addition, executing that woman might have also gotten all the Jews killed as the scepter had departed Judah. Only Rome had the power of execution.

But that's Genesis 49:10. May I have your permission to believe it seeing as how it is Old Testament?

I am not being contentious, but by your posts here and elsewhere, I encourage you to analyze your own self and see if it is you who is the cafeteria Christian here.

Saddem Hussein Was Hung
Hey, Jack. It sounds like you have a quarrel with the saints under the altar in Revelation 6:10. What does their cry for God's judgement say about them?

What does it say about a Jesus that is coming back to smite the nations (i.e. shed their blood)?

What does it say about a God who commanded entire races to be put to death because they were threats to His people? (see I Samuel)

Doubtless, your words, are judgement of the Lord, the martyred saints, and anyone who believes Genesis 9:6.

Science And Evolution Conflict
Jack, you are mistaken. There is no contradiction.

Genesis 1:1-6 show that the heavens and earth WERE made in one day. Everything else on the earth was made in the other five before God rested.

With all due respect, please read more carefully. A babe in Christ who did not know and did not check it out might find their own faith made shipwreck and sinners might not come to faith in Christ because of comments like these.

I also took no pleasure in it. However, I do believe in capital punishment.

Genesis 9:6 -- "Whoso sheddeth mans blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man."

We are still in the image of God. In John 8, the Pharisees tried to put Jesus in a trap between law and mercy. Jesus, being God, could not violate either, so He put the ball back in their court.

In addition, the execution of the woman would have been illegal under Jewish law.

My Wife Is Verbally Abusive
I have been through this! Commit these scriptures to heart.

Proverbs 13:10 -- "Only by pride cometh contention."

James 4:6 -- "God resisteth the proud but giveth grace to the humble."

Matthew 5:25 -- "Agree with thine adversary quickly..." Remember, Jesus was falsely accused and did not defend Himself.

It is hard to fight with someone who will not fight back. It WILL take time, but you WILL see results if you are humble and obedient.

My Wife Is Verbally Abusive
Also, study verbal judo and turn the other cheek using "foggers."

"I'm sorry you feel that way."
"Thank you for sharing."
"Am I all bad?"
"Ouch! Good shot."

I have gone through it and have counseled others. I also have full marriage seminars and a doctorate in theology. I say this only to show that I am qualified to say these things.

And the proof is in the puddin--my wife and I are now happily married.

Can A Woman Be A Pastor
Thus saith the Lord through Paul...

I Timothy 2:11-14 -- "Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp (exercise) authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression."

In the church, women may not pastor, lead, or teach men--only other women or children. Since the reasons go back to Eden, so this is not cultural.

Is Punishment Forever
II Timothy 2:23 -- "But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes."

Romans 5:12 -- "Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:"

Is Punishment Forever
II Peter 1:20 -- "Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation."

John 16:13 -- "Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come."

Benny Hinn Is Selling Statues
Deuteronomy 28:21-22 "But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak,..., even that prophet shall die. And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken? When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him."

Women Not In God's Image
Adam was made in God's direct image. Eve was taken out of Adam. That means that Adam at one time had androgenous personality traits. Follow the logic. Women are made in the image of God.

Besides, God looked at Adam and said "He needs help!" (help-meet. HA!)

Immortality A Gift From God
The fact is that there is truth to what most of you are saying. There are two phases of Hell. There is the current Hell for lost souls, and a future Hell (lake of fire) for them at the resurrection of the damned. Souls do not burn up, and resurrected bodies will constantly regenerate, so they will never be consumed. (Can you imagine that torment?)

Does Luck Exist For Christians
The Rabbis have a saying: "Luck is not a Kosher word." God is in control.

God's Will To Be Sick
Again, context. Isaiah 53:5 -- "But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed." Our transgressions were forgiven, our iniquities cleansed, and we had peace with God at the point when we came to faith. If physical healing were part of the atonement, then logic would have everyone physically healed at salvation. God does heal, but it is not included in Christ's atonement.
