You wrote: I.e. the Apostles state what Christ stated, who fulfilled the prophets. To their brethren Israel.

Yes, that was true, and I NEVER denied that it was true - but it was not the ONLY thing that was true. You totally ignored the other part, as you always seem to do.

For the second time: Romans 1:16
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

Yes, the Gospel was preached to Israel FIRST, as was prophesied. But AFTER that, it was ALSO preached to every other nation, because it's no longer ONLY just to Israel, it's to EVERYBODY.

The 1559 people who found my comments here useful would probably disagree with you - more then 7x as many as found yours useful. YOU were the one who first brought up numbers with Sounds like a long list of people figured this out. Other than you and Jerry, what other "long list of people"? Please name a few, if you can.

First, you trot out "long list" as some kind of proof of your point's legitimacy, but when I show ACTUAL number, you suddenly reverse it with "wide way bad". So are large numbers good, or bad? You can't seem to make up your mind. You just prefer the side that happens to favor you at the moment, and change your position at the drop of a hat.

You wrote: I prefer Truth declared by Prophets, Christ over suppositions.

Unsupported? When discussing the New Covenant, I tend to trust those to whom it was entrusted to speak about it - i.e. the Apostles. The Gospel and the New Covenant was available to ALL, regardless of race:

Galatians 3:28
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

Romans 1:16
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

Also Acts 18:4, 19:10, 19:17, 20:21, Romans 10:12, 1 Corinthians 1:24, Colossians 3:11

jerry6593:

Yet again, you totally miss the point. By "universal", I mean "practiced by every society". Every society has laws against murder, theft, perjury, etc. However it's only Jewish and Christian societies that have laws that require worship of God, forbid making of idols, and enforce the Sabbath.

The United States, for example, very specifically says that congress shall make no law establishing religion, or preventing free exercise thereof. This means that if (say) a Muslim wants to keep Friday holy, and do business on Saturday or Sunday, he's totally free to do so under U.S. law, even if doing so violates the Commandment. Because the Sabbath commandment is NOT universally accepted by all societies.

Who gave YOU the right to decide that? Be VERY specific. Based on your constant hateful and insulting posts, and some outright lies, one could conclude this about you.

Trav wrote: Sounds like a long list of people figured this out.

The above also applies to you. What "long list of people"? Besides you two, I can think of only about two others here.

Since you invoke numbers: 221 people on this site found your posts useful. 28 found john9346's useful. 892 found kathr4453's useful. 1559 found mine useful. My advice is to stay out of the numbers game. You lose hands down.

I personally don't care. It just speaks to why you quote scriptures that may not apply to you.

If YOU "don't know", then by your own logic, YOU might not be a sheep either. Why doesn't this concern you?

I am not BIOLOGICALLY of Israel (that I know of). But that doesn't matter, because "In Christ, there is no male nor female, no Jew nor Greek". Biological descent is not a requirement of the New Covenant.

Blanket vague accusations are meaningless. You constantly condemn what you think I believe. Pick ONE specific subject that you take issue with, and let's discuss it.

Trav:

That may gives you the ability to discern the difference between horses, cows, and dogs. That does not give you the RIGHT to call human beings dogs.

Once again, what possible justification do you have for calling ME a dog?

With regards to Romans 9, you admitted you aren't of Israel, so how is that relevant to you?

Matthew 7:
1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: ...
5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye

You wrote: These scriptures are on point.

How is Psalms 119 relevant to my talking about how to use text fonts?

How is Luke 1 relevant to you not answering my questions?

NONE of these are relevant.

How are your scriptures about "dogs" relevant at all? Presumably you're calling me a dog. You need to say EXACTLY why you feel justified in using such a vile insult. I've asked you this repeatedly, yet you keep refusing to justify it.

You wrote: I have every GOD given right to recognize any animal in the Kingdom of GOD for what it is.

No, YOU DO NOT. Jesus said, "Judge not, lest ye be judged". Yet you totally ignore this, instead taking a power he alone possesses, and presume to pass judgment on others. By doing so, you bring judgment down upon yourself.

I have REPEATEDLY said that I find abortion tragic, and I have REPEATEDLY show alternatives that drastically lower the number of abortions, yet you have NEVER ONCE addressed these.

That I showed ways that reduce abortion yet you ignore them is very telling. It shows your objection is NOT based on saving lives, but rather in condemning the women who have them.


USA Ten Commandments
  
Samuelbb7:

Yes, exactly. Today, we have a name for that: Virtue Signalling. This is when someone spends more time flag-waving and trying to show off to others that they possess some virtue, rather than actually putting that virtue to real use.

This was also happening 2000 years ago. Jesus condemned Pharisees who prayed loudly on street corners, trying to convince people how pious and religious they were - instead of praying earnestly in private.

Today, we have a rich televangelist who own mansions and yachts, but refused to allow his megachurch to be used as temporary shelter for homeless flood victims - because he just got new carpeting put in, and didn't want that to be ruined.


What Was Paul's Gospel
  
Samuel:

Another "gospel" that perverts the message of Christ is the Prosperity Gospel. It turns God into Santa Claus In The Sky. Spirituality is no longer measured by wisdom, but by wealth.Anyone who isn't rich is automatically Doing It Wrong.

It's pushed by mega-evangelists with multiple mansions, luxury cars, yachts, and private jets - paid for by millions of followers who scrape to make ends meet. They encourage followers to go into debt "to prove their faith" by sending them money.

Their hypocrisy is evident. If you need money, they tell YOU to pray and have faith. But if THEY need money, they don't do that - they PREY and whine for their supporters to mail them checks.

john9346:

(Sorry for the much-delayed response. I just now saw this).

You wrote: Your not a Christian sir with love and respect I say this to you...

You also said the same to Cluny and Monk Brendan. Who are YOU to decide who is a Christian and who is not? Your comment just proved my point - you think anyone who doesn't agree with you 100% isn't a Christian. Sorry. That is presumptuous, and that's not your call to make. Making such a call does not come from a place of love, nor respect.

Why should I pick one that applies to me? What evidence do you have that ANY of them apply to me, other than your own vile imaginations? Why don't YOU pick one that applies to YOU?

So you support special interests financially right. Which ones? Defund the police?

I support no "special interests" financially. Once again, YOU TOTALLY MAKE UP LIES about other people based on ZERO EVIDENCE. You constantly violate "Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor"? You do that against me in almost every single post!


How To Rebuke Evil
  
Trav:

I do not presume to have any right do decide who is a dog. But guess what? NEITHER DO YOU.

I have been here for over 10 years. You haven't. So you aren't in any position to tell me what I was or was not able to put together then. Yet more lies.

So who, exactly, does the Bible say "what is a dog"? Be specific.


What Is The Purpose Of Blogs
  
Trav:

If a certain subject is being discussed, scriptures that are related to that subject are on point, and appreciated. However, scriptures that have nothing to do with the subject, but whose sole purpose is to condemn the other person are neither appreciated, nor relevant. Most of the scriptures you post are of the second kind.

Trav:

You wrote: Php 3:2Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision.
Lets see which arrives first at this table.


Yes, but remember that Jesus said, Judge not, lest ye be judged. Nobody gave you the authority (let alone the wisdom) to proclaim that someone else is a dog, or a "grievous wolf".

YOU are the one here who is constantly baring his teeth, attacking people, and accusing people. Look in the mirror.

When I argue with you, it is because I take issue with what you SAY. When you argue with me, you take issue with who and what I AM. These are personal attacks that have no business in any kind of reasoned discussion.


USA Ten Commandments
  
Bill:

Some Commandments are universal (don't kill, steal, bear false witness). No adultery is common, but not universal. Don't covet isn't common.

Have no other gods, Make no graven images, Don't use God's name in vain, and Keep the Sabbath are specific to Judaism/Christianity. Honor your parents is cultural but rarely a law.

It's odd Christians want to post 10C but not Two Commandments or Beatitudes (part of the NT). They scream if other religions wanted their scriptures posted. Church of Satan successfully argued, if Christians can post plaques and statues on government property, so can they.

Exactly! Matthew 5:46: For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?


Orthodox Church Priesthood
  
Trav:

First you call me a dog, then a wolf, then a weasel? Why so obsessed with calling people animals?

Even though none of your business, I don't march or rally with any special interests. Asked and answered. Now it's your turn.

What "platforms by association" does 1 Cor 6:9 apply to? Say SPECIFICALLY which one.

"Defund the police" means "Instead of having police do EVERYTHING, offload their non-violent responsibilities. Domestic disputes, to counselors trained in psychology, not SWAT teams". You don't need gun-toting cops checking parking meters. When someone calls 911 for a wellness check on grandma, medics help grandma instead of trigger-happy cops accidentally shooting her.

You wrote: I ask yes no questions and you run.

What question, exactly, (excluding personal questions that have no relevance here, and are none of your business), have you asked that I have run from? Be specific.

Jerry outed you because he is a Man

Outed me as what, exactly? Be specific.

You say the Democrats are "the most anti-American group ever assembled in history of the US", but who gets to define WHAT "American" means? Do you think that privilege belongs to you? 7 million MORE Americans voted for Biden than Trump. I would think that the voice of the majority of ACTUAL AMERICANS, with a larger margin than in any election in history, would have a say in that question.
