    It depends. Where does that originate from? In Genesis the first book of the Bible it reads: 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the Earth. 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God. 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 15:26 But when the Comforter comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceeded from the Father, he shall testify of me. Is this the Trinity you are referring to? The only (trinity) I can find in Gods written word.

    On Matthew 24:36 Chris the Scripture you refer to Matthew 24:36, I thought that was when Jesus comes at the end of the Tribulation & every eye would see him. I was referring to when the rapture of the Church occurs. I guess I phrased my question wrong. The Jews were looking for the Kingdom of God, weren't they, as they didn't know anything about the rapture or tribulation?

    A Christian is someone who is born again by the power of the Holy Ghost. To be born again you must believe the gospel of Jesus Christ, that He died for your sins, He was buried, and He rose on the third day. By believing the gospel God gives you everlasting life. If you have everlasting life how can you die? Your flesh will die because of sin but your soul and spirit are saved because of the righteousness of faith in Christ. Now there are a lot of people who call themselves "christians" but are not born again. Do you know for sure that if you were to die today, you will go to heaven?

    When did Jesus say "For where two or three are gathered together in my Name, there am I in the midst of them", i.e. how many years ago.

    No parts are optional. You follow them all. Culture and society have trampled the Word of God. Women should STILL worship with their heads covered. The reason why they don't ??? Just like Israel did. And look what happened to Israel. God turned His back on them for millenium now. There are left to doing what is right in their own eyes, Just as AmeriKans are. And just as God did with Israel, for turning AWAY from the Lord their God, He is fixing to do the exact same with America and England. Just as a woman shall keep her silence in church 1 Cor 14:34, she should also worship with her head covered. 1 Cor 11:5 tells why.But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven. If a woman worships with her head uncovered, she DISHONORETH her head (husband) and is an embrassment to him. The silence/head covering is designed by God to show a woman humility. Keeps her humble.

    Women are NOT equal. They never were from the beginning.God made woman from a PART of man. Peter calls them the weaker vessel. if you aren't the same strength, then you are unequal. She was made to be a "help meet" , a wife for man; not a ruler, not a soverign, not a CEO, not a soldier, not a cop, but a keeper of the house. Weak men have given up their God given lordship due to feminism, what a shame. God used a woman judge (Deborah) and a housewife (Jael) ONE time in the Bible, in the same event no less, for the specific reason of being an embarrassment to a male king. That's all. Never another woman ruler. God told MEN to go to war, never did he tell WOMEN to go to war. The young girl that "kept the door of the tabernacle" was a one time job, her dad had to go and do a job inside the temple and she was the first person he saw to hold the door. Why is it that these days, women STRIVE to be better than men. What do they have to prove? That they are equal? They break God's law/order

    If the bible says that Jesus forgives us all our sin why does it preach about apostasy
  • Mild Bill - in Reply on Psalms 23:1
    Darrin,you misunderstand. "And he(Lord Jesus) saith unto them,Are ye so without understanding also?Do ye not perceive,that whatsoever thing from without entereth into the man,it cannot defile him"Mark 7:18 The substance of sin comes from the heart of man.

    (From earlier comment). Secondly, God is not asleep or disinterested in what goes on here. And we also need to remember that unlike our view of death (its pain & finality), God's regards it as a transition from this life (which He has given anyway) into the next life (Revelation 21:4). Suffering & death comes to ALL of us because of our sin nature (& that includes innocent children). Had sin not come & been imputed upon all, none would suffer & die. So our humanistic view of life is narrow & clouded - we need to see it from God's perspective. So the death of a little child, the mugging & death of an elderly man just for some loose change, or a young bride's life cut short by cancer; what about all the world tragedies over the centuries - where was God in all these events? Could God have prevented all this? Of course. But that's not what a sin sick world is all about - it's about the need for a Saviour, not a cure for our deserved griefs.

We see the innocent child in death, the aged man getting mugged & killed for spare change, or the young bride diagnosed with cancer, & we ask, 'where is God in all this, could He not have prevented this from happening?" Could He not prevent other world tragedies from taking place over the centuries? Yes He could but He won't - we reap what we sow & even though deserving of Hell, He still gives a Way of escape.

    The other writer (Rei) essentially questioned that a criminal's punishment in this life or hereafter is insufficient to give comfort. Your point (as with his) is that "could not God have stepped in & done something to prevent the crime on the little one?" Well firstly, it's not enough for criminals to only go to their Judge for punishment; they need punishment here on Earth too by the law, which invariably is inadequate & meaningless (I won't go into Capital Punishment).

  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Luke 17:34
    Concerning the Rapture. Matthew 24:40 - Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

    Matthew 24:41 - Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

    Matthew 24:42 - Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

    do you know the WICKED were TAKEN and Noah was LEFT BEHIND at the end of the flood.

    Luke 17:26 - And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.

    The WICKED were TAKEN and Noah was LEFT BEHIND

    Paul in 1 Cor 15:52 - In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the LAST TRUMP: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

    We are changed at the LAST TRUMP and where is this found?

    In REVELATION, the LAST BOOK of the Bible there are 7 trumps and the 7th trump is the LAST ONE and is at the end of the tribulation. Jesus said we had to endure to the end.
  • Chris - in Reply on Matthew 24
    Wow!! Are you saying that Matthew 24:5 speaks about some who come to confirm that Jesus is the Christ, & in saying this are deceiving many? I hope not. Cause if you are, then you've given a classic example of Scripture twisting or an inability to grasp English fully. Also see Matthew 24:24.

    However, if I've misunderstood you & my apologies, then I can't see what your other point is. Clarification please? And the 'two possibilities': no answer, I give up.

    Neil, are you thinking a second major Flood? I would be interested in your understanding of Genesis 9:11-17 & how this might fit in with your understanding of this news article. Thank you.

    Part two comment:

    Was it all a creation experiment that got scrapped and restarted? We know something huge hit the earth and killed all the dinosaurs, everything. All we have left is bone, rock, vegetation evidence and oil. What are people fighting about on earth? Oil, water, elements. What Lucifer/Satan meant for confusion and evil was destroyed by God. God created the solar system: and how is it that only earth supports life? The earth is the Lords and everything in it. Satan no longer has the title deed to this Earth. He lost it at THE CROSS. He does cause the humans much grief though. He does the bad things. He is facing Hell and he knows his time is short! Revelation on earth is going to be beyond brutal. Give your heart, mind and soul to Jesus now!! Quit playing scientist. I'm sure Satan loves it. He's got you... until you decide to Awake Sleeper. And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me. People didn't believe because of the Pharisees.

  • Mishael on John 5:4
    Got up today in prayer about this whole debate about creation vs evolution. All day felt the nearness of the Holy Spirit. This evening He gave some Light on this. It's up to you to listen.

    The Holy Spirit said: If I be lifted up..

    The scripture is John 12:32. (Read John 12:23-50 for continuity)

    In Genesis, GOD CREATED: 2 humans and all kinds of animal creatures. He blessed them and called it VERY good. No mutations. Any of you that believe in your hearts & brains, that God created mistakes and mutations, is not saved. That is an ACCUSATION and you must know who the accuser is (satan). Your mind is blinded. John 12:40.

    All this business of missing links, mutations, DNA similarities is unholy. Satan was thrown to earth by Michael the archangel. That event is recorded in one of the prophetic Books. We don't know how long he was loose on the earth creating his own evil ie: dinosaurs, pre-adamic peoples. We have bones. Did God say EVER that He did that?

    Yes but please, if you use the name Yahweh, be consistent and use the name Yeshua (or is it Yehoshua?).
  • Chris - in Reply on Acts 22
    Yes Erma, a very sad story indeed. How foolish was Jephthah (Judges 11:13-39) in making such a vow. I think, could he not have vowed to the LORD something else, knowing the likelihood of a family member coming through the door? And v 40 confirms her demise, in that "the daughters of Israel went each year to lament (the death) of Jephthah's daughter". Doesn't it speak to us about what we say or affirm to? Just to note: Adah is not mentioned as his daughter in the Bible; you may have picked it up from some extra-biblical source.
  • Chris - in Reply on Acts 22
    David, I think it depends on how you view equality. If through the eyes of the present, then yes, both the Quran & the Bible are out of step with gender equality. Having ministered in an Islamic country, I can state that the Islam does treat women equally, BUT on THEIR terms & understanding of their scriptures. I don't agree with it naturally (from a Christian viewpoint), but they need to abide by its requirements until such time they find their freedom in Christ. For the Christian woman, again if the matter is considered on purely a cultural basis, also the head covering issue, then they can appear offensive. What about a male covering his head? But our Scriptures do give a clear reason & it is not to belittle women in any way: it starts in 1 Cor 11:3; 14:34,35 (specifically): relating the spiritual significance & order of creation. True, many today pay little regard to such verses, but then the question: which parts of the Bible do I choose to practise & which parts are optional?
  • Chris - in Reply on Isaiah 11
    Thank you for your comments, David. This piqued my interest in a part of history that is not easily available to us; at least after my spending much time doing research. My research showed Constantine's rise to power & his 'conversion' & subsequent favour to the persecuted & impoverished Christians living in Rome. On his death bed he was baptized for the security of his soul. But, nothing about what you had written. I then found (in Wikipedia) the following: "In 331 AD, Constantine commissioned Eusebius to deliver 50 Bibles to the Church of Constantinople. Athanasius recorded that about 340 Alexandrian scribes prepared Bibles for Constans. It was speculated that this provided motivation for canon lists & (certain codices) are examples of these Bibles. Together with another codex, these are the earliest extant Christian Bibles". Is this then what you are referring to? If not, then I would be interested to read your source material.
  • David Orren - in Reply on Acts 22
    Hi Chris,

    Thanks for that. I guess this is where Christianity meets Islam. I understand that Muslims are also against women being equal. They try to make it look OK by saying that women are equal 'just in another way'. Is that how Christians see it as well? And in the Jewish religion? Maybe that has something to do with the region and time in history where these three religions succeeded one another?

    In my case my mother, sister and daughter are all better educated and sure are much smarter than me! I guess if we had a church it would be them leading the discussion.

    Do you think maybe Paul was talking about how things were then in the Middle East, 2,000 years ago? Do we ever ask why? Would keeping women down work well today in London or NYC? Could that lead a a lot of very unhappy women? Even unhappy men? Seems unnecessary and I cannot think of a good reason for it..

    David

    Micah 6:8

    "He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?"

    John 14:6

    "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
  • Peter - in Reply on Acts 22
    to David Orren i was just wondering, were the Missing Links on the idea of evolution ever solved. It was discussed in the 1960. The idea was that there is such a big difference in the humans and apes and other animal in for example what we could do compared with other animals, how could the brain of other animals account for that? There is no comparison with animals even if there is just a slight difference in the DNA. Our brains are much bigger, i think; and of course, we have a Mind. I think that all that they have done for the last 4 generation is just teach that it is so. Education is turning out identical clones, everyone thinking the same, U never hear anyone mention the missing links.
