    Ah yes the Babylonian Talmud (mystery babylon?) Talmud mean learning so Babylonian Learning.
    the tradition of the elders Jesus spoke against. Jesus speaking Mark Chapter 7: 7 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
    8 For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.
    9 And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.

  • Fred scanlan on Galatians 5
    Being intimidated by others for your confidence in Christ should be expected, even today as it was then. Faith in christ is found in Him only. We should not judge one another based on a work righteous faith. Paul uses the word biting one another. How many times we offend one another? Being called to liberty in Christ , using this liberty to love one another, while being in Christ causing divisions within the church. It is impossible but offences will come. Some would find any reason to continue against Christ, or believe salvation is without the works of the law, who Paul claimed he was chief of, while leaders in the church still deny him!

    Romans 9:20-24

    20
    Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus?
    21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?
    22 What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction:
    23 And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory,
    24 Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles?

    God has already answered you in the Eternal Scriptures!
  • Maggie Battle-Smith - in Reply on Psalms 91
    I have loved the 91st. Psalms for many , many years. Also I have for many years kept a bible opened at all times in my home displaying this particular chapter! I go back and read it as well especially "For Such A Time As This"!!! God's word is true , it's very comforting & reassuring.... Amen?
  • Adam - in Reply on 1 Thessalonians 1
    Hi Benji, have you read James 2? It says faith without works is dead (17), and even demons believe and have faith (19), so is satan and his demons going to heaven then? Also, if faith was all that is needed for salvation, why did Jesus say otherwise? Jesus said Luke 5:32 He called sinners to repentance. Do you claim that repentance isn't necessary? If so, are we to believe you over Jesus himself? This is reinforced in other scripture too: 1 John 1:9 (says to confess), and Acts 2:38. So, I'm interested in your interpretation of these other powerful verses and why you feel repentance and confession isn't needed to become a Christian? Link

    What's with all the acidic preaching? Jesus did not preach that way. He did speak strongly to Pharisees and Saducees, etc. He spoke to people where they were: farmers, tradesmen, fishermen, etc. Shoot me some examples of Him tearing off arms & legs?

    There is so much good I the world. Christians say God responsible for that. But not for the bad? Then who created the Tsunami? And Plague? Why do you praise God for the good things and let him off the hook for the bad things?
  • David Orren - in Reply on Philippians 4
    Hi T-Bone,

    The Tsunami Covid19 are pretty big... not really micromanagement.

    I feel very privileged to be on this planet and am grateful for everything I have and for the people around me. I want friends who are generous with each other because that is the right thing to do, and because they feel good doing that. Not because they are afraid or are trying to get something in return.

    Why are Christians continually afraid and feel they deserve to be continually punished?

    Most people will do the right thing if they have enough choice to do so. Only a few will only do the right thing out of fear. Do you feel you have to behave properly, out of fear, and in order to get something?
  • Charles Stubbs Sr - in Reply on Deuteronomy 28
    I agree. When did Israel in the bible go back to Egypt in ships? So the original Israelites were black. We are the ones brought to america on ships. No were in the bible it says israel went Egypt in ships.
  • Erech Christ Nimrod - in Reply on John 15
    Question: why do you christians worship jesus christ's "death" instead of his victory over death??? because jesus christ teaches you in Revelation 1:18 "i am he that lives, and was dead; and, behold!!!i am alive for evermore!!! amen; and i have the keys of heall and of death!!!

    can anybody answer that question??? peace.
  • T Bone - in Reply on Philippians 4
    Hello, it sounds like you believe God exists, but somehow assume he's supposed to micromanage everything, and somehow assume you're entitled to Him serving you, as if he's a genie in a bottle? You're lucky you even exist, God didn't have to create you. Look at your heart- absolutely nothing causes it to beat currently, but it does. You could call that a miracle you're even alive. Also He didn't have to give you freewill, but did. You could have been a mindless puppet, but you're not. So, you can use that freewill to slander Him all you want, but that's not going to increase your rewards in the afterlife if you're looking for comfort. No one is entitled to anything.

  • Adam - in Reply on Philippians 4
    David, God created everything and has the power to create or take life, and we don't have that power- you aren't God. Since you're claiming God is 'bad' for random things that happen in the course of nature, do you equally thank God for your life, for food, relationships, making you and giving you each breath of life right now? Or is it just one way, you ignore all the good He's given you, and just want to blame all the 'bad' on Him? I'm sure you know that youre 100% going to die and our time on Earth is just a flicker compared to eternity. Innocent people like children who die go to paradise in heaven. "natural disasters are always the poor" - that's false. Why do you not give God credit for anything good?
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Genesis 1
    Paul in 1 Thess 2:14, 16 - For ye, brethren, became followers of the churches of God which in Judaea are in Christ Jesus: for ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, EVEN AS THEY HAVE OF THE JEWS: WHO BOTH KILLED THE LORD JESUS, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and THEY PLEASE NOT GOD, and are contrary to all men: Forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles that they might be saved, to fill up their sins alway: FOR THE WRATH IS COME UPON THEM TO THE UTTERMOST.
    So is Paul cursed for speaking the truth about those who killed jesus?
  • Fred scanlan on Luke 4
    It is interesting that people waited till evening to bring the sick to be healed. People were afraid of something? Perhaps there was a division between the people the poor and the rich. The rich being those affiliated with the church? Christs words have just enough salt, to convict the guilty. They would rather throw Him off a cliff then to hear anymore His word. The holy spirit describes what happens when the individual is convicted of sin. The power in the true word of God! It is sharper than a two edged sword! It will severe joints from the marrow! It will bring you to your knees! Oh you faithless generation of vipers. How shall you escape so great a God! His kingdom shall have no end.
  • K Laughon on 1 Thessalonians 5
    In Hebrews we learn that God has given us "today". Previously man lived by seasons & times. Remember his will is for us to worship him. He gives us today to receive the gift of eternal life.To come for the fulfilment of abundant living. To enter into his discipleship & commandment of walking in his love. As in any generation, today is our hope and could be answer. He is seeking us always, are we going to submit to him as an individual, nation, or world!? Friend, nothing would please him more than to be your God & to lead us out. John 3:16🕊️

    I do think the Tsunami was a bit of a mistake.. don't you think?

    And what about the Corona Virus?

    And the way that the Church has consistently covered up child abuse? And gotten away with it!

    If God had done all those things on purpose.. well... that would be very hard to forgive. My guess is that God is not bad, he just does take his eye off the ball sometimes. Means we need to learn to think more for ourselves and learn judgement and common sense. I think that is what a good God would want.
  • David Orren - in Reply on Philippians 4
    Adam.. we all make mistakes. Does not mean the vulnerable should die a horrible death. Just learn from our mistakes and hold ourselves accountable for how we behave.

    But who is holding God accountable for the misery he creates for millions of people? Why is it Ok for him to create terror across the land? How does that 'punish' in any sensible way? The people who suffer natural disasters are always the poor, not those who live well at the expense of others. How is that fair? I am sure you agree that does not make sense.
  • David Orren - in Reply on Philippians 4
    It seems to me that being good to other people is just plain common sense.

    We do not need a God to be good. Just need to use common sense.

    Why do Christians need to be afraid of God in order to be good?

    Perhaps many were beaten as children and made to be afraid?

    Children who are not beaten or made to be afraid but treated kindly can and do grow up doing the same for their children. No need to be afraid - or make others afraid - in order to be good.

    Its common sense to be wary of those who would make us be afraid in order to do what they want.

    Common sense and treating other people as one would like others to treat us is sensible. Be with people who treat you with respect.

  • Lisa - in Reply on Daniel 9
    The rod? Have you heard a saying that goes "spare the rod, spoil the child" chastisement
    The staff? That was used as a comfort.. so to speak. Before the Bible was in existence
    To dwell in the house of the Lord?
    As a Christian, we are not perfect, we fall short daily, many times daily. We should live a Christian life, if ya know it's wrong, don't do it. Be ye a separate people. Do not be conformed to the world. Live your life as God was right there with you every second of the day. And pray ask for forgiveness when you mess up.. nobody can walk your walk but you. 😁

    What does the Bible say about worldly virus's that are deadly and an Epeidemic world wide?
  • Adam - in Reply on Philippians 4
    Hi David,

    >Why do I need to be forgiven? For what?!

    Have you ever made a mistake in your life and broke one of the 10 commandments? Have you ever once lied, stolen, dishonored your parents, coveted something, committed adultery, etc? If so, you've violated moral law and the punishment for sinning against God is death (Romans 6:23). Have you ever violated the laws of your city, state, county and had to appear before a judge? Did you accuse the judge of being wrong for punishing you, or did you realize maybe you were the one wrong? What if the judge found you guilty, but instead of you getting the punishment he took it himself for you? That's what Jesus did for you.
  • Mickey on 2 Esdras 1
    As far as burden carrying: there is an escape to burdens. Jesus said to cast those upon Him.
    Read these following scriptures. It's going to help you. Did you know worry is sin? Run to 1 John chapter 1 verses 8-9; 2:1

    Here's the burden scriptures: Matthew 11:28-29. Psalms 62:8. Philippians 4:6 and Galatians 6:5

    I found this to be true that when we are in extreme crushed mode, it's time to fast and pray. Fast from fun and feed on the Word of God. It's more painful than you think. Turn off all media. Emergency calls only. Read the New Testament. Get a pencil and mark some verses that give you peace. Repent as needed. In Church they say fast from food, Feed on the Word of God.
  • David Orren - in Reply on Isaiah 11
    Does it matter? The bible was put together on the initiative of the Roman Emperor as a founding story to unite the tribes of Europe in acceptance of their rule. Its got some useful metaphors and can be used to educate children in some useful moral codes, but needs to be used carefully by adults or their children may grow up believing it literally.
  • David Orren - in Reply on Philippians 4
    Adam says that 'Jesus died for you so you can be forgiven and spend an eternity in paradise if you accept his gift.'
    Why do I need to be forgiven? For what?!

    This suggest that I am guilty of something. What exactly?

    You say that God is all powerful. That he created the heavens and the earth. So God has created the Coronavirus.

    Why do Christians not hold him accountable for this? If he were a man, he would go to prison for spreading Bioterrorism. Why don't Christians hold him accountable?

    Why instead do Christians assume PEOPLE are guilty about something for which we need forgiveness? Why do Christians flip reality and ignore the enormous suffering he has caused?
