    Non believers use to say that the day you have set aside for the worship to be the sabbath so let me ask that.why is it that after creation GOD did not say that,everyone to choose his or her day of worship and keep it holy instead he insist on sabbath which is called saturday nowadays if you cant accept christ teaching they will continue missleading you
  • Anonymous for verse 1
    Instead of believing the truth, accepting the truth, these elders would rather lie and save face not realizing that the truth would come out eventually. Actually, the Truth (Jesus) did come out. Even today, some people would rather tell, and believe a lie instead of accepting the truth. We have to always remember the scriptures (if we will), John 14:6 says Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. 2 Thessalonians 2:7-12, (7) For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. (8) And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of His mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming: (9) Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, (10) And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they; might be saved. (11) And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: (12) That they all might be damned who believe not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
  • I wonder what the last name was of the other Mary, not Mary Magdalene? Or was Mary Magdalene actually both part of her first name?
