  • Whit witherspoon - in Reply on Deuteronomy 6:18
    I watched my mother die for 5 years and maybe God did that to scare me out of being an undesirable, adulterous, disrespectful, drunken derelectic idiot. I personally don't believe he needed to do that to keep me straight, but I did have the resources then to become a wild and crazy playboy debaucherer. I married a very poor lady with three small boys and helped her raise them they are now very fine men. WE are still married and we love each other very much. So maybe there was a method to GOD's seemingly evil way that he treated my mother. It WORKED !!
  • Nancy lennie on 1 Chronicles 16:30
    what does "poor in spirit" mean? if you are poor why are you blessed.? this beautitide is confusing why would I want to be b poor? and why do poor people want more and we want to give them more. and then they will not be blessed?
  • Kenneth E Brewer Jr on Judges 1
    Judges 1:19 And the LORD was with Judah; and he drave out the inhabitants of the mountain; but could not drive out the inhabitants of the valley, because they had chariots of iron. Could also read: And the LORD was with Judah; and Judah drave out the inhabitants of the mountain; but could not drive out the inhabitants of the valley, because they had chariots of iron. It was Judah who could not drive out the inhabitants of the valley because they lacked faith.

    My comments about was Jesus truly God the son,There are many scriptures that MENTION that Jesus was truly God the son as Hebrews 1 Unto the SON he says thy THRONE O GOD IS FOREVER and Ever. It was God Almighty that made this law that everything has to multiply after its Kind . But we see that Jesus ii able to reproduce after the God kind ( Spirits ). Thats y he is saying that which is born of the spirit is spirit which is the H.G. that is gonna be born in humanity the very multiplication of God, To whom the word came his Seed the living word it made them Gods thus he is able to reproduce God in humanity, He is able to propagate very GOD IN HUMANITY THE WORLD 27 TIMES the prophets saw the world in travail and birth pains all b/c of his seed the word the contents of the book in the fathers right hand. Jesus does not reproduce after flesh & blood , his seed is the living word thus he reproduces after the GOD KIND, THE H.G THE GRANSON THE BEGINNING OF AN ISREAL OF GOD, Christ was just his 1st born of many brethren, Thats y the sower will go forth to sow his precious seed in humanity that a baby Christ wd be born in US sinners The H.G. thats y the new birth is so important, its the beginning of an Israel of God. John baptised you with water but i will baptise you with the H.G and fire a heavenly birth by his seed the WORD. His seed results in a birth, a Child which is the H.G.THAT WHICH IS BORN OF THE SPIRIT IS SPIRIT THATS THE H.G. B/C I HAVE SPOKEN THESE WORDS/SEEDS SORROWS HAVE FILLED YOUR HEARTS A SPRITUAL PREGNANCY, THEN HE TELLS THEM OF A WOMAN IN TRAVAIL N BIRTH PAINS,Which answers to the woman in Revelation 12, her CHILD IS A KINGDOM CHILD,Her Child fulfills the prophecy that Christ wd be multiplied as the stars of heaven, Thats y Isaiah is saying when he saw the Kingdom coming unto US a child is born unto US a son is given, AS Jesus said unless you receive the Kingdom as a lil Child you will in no wise enter there in,Her Child is the Granson th H.G. TH PROMISE CHILD.

    And, are these people only Jews? Or both Jews and gentiles?

    In the Bible there are lots of things that show that abortion is wrong and shouldn't be done for one the Bible teaches that all life is valuable and shouldn't be taken from someone. It also shows that all life is precious all you have to do is look anywhere in the Bible and see these principles taught.

    On Angels not being able to father children what about the fallen angels that followed satan,they left Heaven and found the daughters fair and took them that they wanted that is why there were geber "gaints" that is what the Noah flood was about
  • Mild Bill - in Reply on Psalms 8
    By suggesting God can be multiplied you violate the holiness of God.Scripture always affirms he is unique, whereas, the pride of Satan to declare himself as god, has defiled the creation, and not supplanted God. I know where you learned your erroneous lie.

    why is eunoch now eunuch, are you aware of all the changes to words and scriptures that are taking place almost daily now?
  • Chris - in Reply on Wisdom of Solomon 19
    That's a huge, open-ended question - you will get as many different answers, I would think.

    I think that pastors/elders generally refrain from preaching on topics that are controversial (i.e. where there may be a divided opinion amongst the congregation over an issue). These matters may pop up during the course of a sermon, but I've not heard any clear, focused message on matters such as consumption of alcohol, homosexuality, divorce & re-marriage, God's requirements of governments, Law & Grace, Capital Punishment, dress standards, etc.

    I know in more 'closed' congregations, these subjects are well understood, as the 'leader' over the congregations will have given directions for the people's understanding & acceptance of the Church's position on the matters, but in 'open' congregations, such subjects may be seen as divisive or even unworthy to bring up as a sermon, presuming that they would be of little spiritual exhortation.
  • Chris - in Reply on Colossians 2
    Yes. Romans 11:12-14: "Now if the fall of them (Israel) be the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fulness? For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office: If by any means I may provoke to emulation them which are my flesh (Israel), and might save some of them."

    His primary ministry was to the Gentiles, but that didn't stop Paul for taking opportunities to minister to his own people, the Jews. Also read Acts chapter 13 for an example of his ministry to the Jews also.
  • Susan Callan on Job 22:21
    Thank you Lord for your peace. Help me to accept your peace. Not to fight within myself , just accept. Freely you give, help me to rest in you. In Jesus Name and for your glory. Amen.
  • Chris - in Reply on Zechariah 14:17
    The writer in Hebrews chapter 2 is showing the superiority of Christ over the angels, yet for the purposes of His Incarnation, suffering & death, He was made a little lower than them (v9). Then from verse 10, Christ's Work in seen in His Salvation & Sanctification of those who put their trust in Him.

    But to experience life on Earth & death, he took on the nature of men & not angels (v16). And this death was necessary not only for payment for our sins but a complete identification with us (vv 15, 18). So verse 14 tells us that just as we are 'flesh & blood', so Jesus took on this type of body of flesh, that by dying for us, the power of the Devil might also be destroyed.

    While mankind (Israel) was subservient to the Law, they were required to obey it but had no power to gain deliverance from its penalty & Satan's influence to keep them powerless & bound. Christ's death made full payment for our sins, made us acceptable to God & His Blood & Spirit in us gives us victory over Satan, releasing Satan's power over us. However, as we give into sin, we allow Satan to gain a foothold into our lives. And those supposed 'Christians' who engage in rampant sin, show that they count Jesus' Sacrifice & Power over Satan as naught, & in fact have invited Satan to have control over them rather than having the Power & Efficacy of Jesus' Blood over them.
  • Chris - in Reply on Deuteronomy 6:18
    Whit, no apologies necessary - I don't believe I questioned you sharing your secret - these testimonies speak to all of us of what others have gone through in life & how the Lord has sustained & intervened in some special way.

    However, your comment about God being both good & evil concerned me. Ordinarily, I could pass this off as a person's use of the word 'evil' may not be what I'm thinking of. But that comment triggered in my mind, one of my last conversations with an uncle before he passed away some years after we talked. He too used that phrase about God being both good & evil, yet his was an angry, fist in the air blast against God, because of certain 'evils' that had come to him through his life. Even when talking about this with him, about his accusation against God & that God is not a God of evil nor can He do evil, my uncle was adamant it was so till his death.

    Your Mother's death was long & very painful & heartbreaking to read. My Mother too died, suffering horribly for two years with lung cancer. Even after our family's pleadings with God & cries from me, her 14 yr old son, did not move God's Hand to spare her. Why didn't God listen - is He evil for taking an innocent life? I had to learn early on that God wanted her Home & there would be events in the future that would fall into place - into His bigger Plan.

    All I can share here is that God does allow things to happen to our lives or loved ones for reasons unknown to us - this does not make Him evil, it shows us that He is God alone, our Creator, the One Who is entitled to do what He wants with His creation, & in His Plans He does what is right & best for us. We can't see the end of it all - we just feel the present disappointment & sorrow. But in our ignorance of Him, He requires a complete trust & faith in His Work & that "we (should) know that ALL things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose." (Romans 8:28). The Lord strengthen you.
  • Chris - in Reply on Exodus 9
    Acts 14:11-14 tell us that Paul & Barnabas healed a crippled man at Lystra. This miracle caused some to think that the gods had come to visit them. So they named Paul, Mercurius & Barnabas, Jupiter. And to this Paul & Barnabas were extremely upset as they wanted to point people to the True & Living God, not mythological beings.

    So Mercurius, or Hermes was a god of travel, commerce, communications, eloquence: to which Paul was likened for his speech. And Jupiter, or Zeus was the king god of the sky, thunder, lightning, law & justice.

    Other Greek gods: Hera, Poseidon, Demeter, Athena, Apollo, Artemis, Aphrodite, Hermes, Dionysus, etc. These names I gleaned from the Web. And these gods would also be included in their religious & family practise.

    And to your point: "where I am spiritually, without sin in the present or future, as after salvation I have not sinned". If I could develop that: if 'sinlessness' is indeed your present joyful position, then would you understand if I could describe your spiritual state as that of Adam & Eve before their fall? They were pure, sinless; had they remained that way, they would not have faced spiritual & physical death, as both these are products of sin. They would have lived on eternally in an incorrupt world.

    You are now sinless: would physical death finally overcome you, as it would for us? Of course, the Rapture (though I understand the a-millennial position of the Church of God) might prevent death from happening to you, but in biblical reality, you should as a sinless man never experience death. For the rest of us, death is a sure thing as in spite of our new justified position in Christ, our past sins that have corrupted our nature & our bodies guarantee our physical death.

    If you should say that you would still experience physical death because of the past corruption of the body, then that only shows the Truth of Romans 6:23, that the sin nature is still evident (maybe, not reigning in you), & the end of it must be a physical death; the spiritual death being averted through Jesus Christ. So with the removal of sin & the sin nature, there must of necessity be no further corruption of the physical body leading to physical death.

    David, I see that we are considering the same precious Scriptures yet with a different understanding. Of course, this is not the medium one can use for a detailed exposition of the Scriptures, so we're limited to a proper development of what was written & how we are required to understand it. Suffice to say, in respect of this matter, I see Romans 6:1, "What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?" as the thrust of Paul's discourse. There were those in the Church who had a warped view of God's Grace (for past, present & future sins). Since God's Grace abounded towards them (Romans 5:20, 21), then "why worry about sin, as all sin gets forgiven under God's abounding Grace". Paul had to refute that with Romans 6:1 & following verses. It is from here we disagree, as you understand that our "body of sin destroyed" (6:6), "freed from sin" (6:7), "dead to sin (6:11), etc. are all referring to both past, present & future removal of the sins & the old nature. I understand Paul was referring to the Law that only pointed to the fact of our sin, & that Law was now removed/cancelled by virtue of Jesus' death, thus enabling the believer to stand before God as righteous & justified based on the Perfect Sacrifice & no longer to be a servant of sin (which is of the Law).

    Then in the Romans 7 passage which you believe speaks of Paul's 'previous life' before God, which has merit, except as said before, in verse 25, after all his introspection & abhorrence of the old nature, he exclaims (now, in the present), that through Jesus Christ he serves God (the new Law), but in the flesh (the old nature) he serves the Law of sin (the old Law). For us to include this verse 25 with the preceding verses as Paul's witness of the old life makes this verse meaningless if we're to keep the same 'past tense'.
  • Malakai Qera on Wisdom of Solomon 19
    what is the most ignored message in today's biblical teachings?

    can you elaborate and clarify why?

    thank you
  • I'm not sure what you mean when you say God can be EVIL? One who has truly studied Jesus knows; God may allow evil though he is not evil. He may give Satan or demons permission to do things(as we saw with Saul, Ananias, Paul, Job etc) but it is to be an example, to torment and to bring to righteousness-for His purpose. If God casts someone into hell it's not because He is evil..it's because the person was evil. We should fear him not because he is evil but because he has the ultimate authority to allow evil into our lives based upon our will.

    When I was a very sinful person I experienced horrific things I never wish on anyone. Was it God himself? I don't believe so. I believe God allowed these demons to present themselves due to my sins. With what I saw and felt I can't even contemplate nor even want to imagine what hell would feel like.

    I don't blame God. I don't think God is evil. I'm thankful he has shown me things that have changed my life and brought me closer to Him.

    I hope you are able to change your view or understanding. Telling people God is evil is not using the correct lense.
