    Lest:
    You do understand that just as Brother Snooop1e left his denomination and became RC, there are many who have left Rome and become Protestants? The reasons are very similar to his reasons. I know several pastors of Hispanic churches that have very little good to say about their days as Roman Catholics.

    The term ‘Christian’ was first used in Antioch as recorded in Acts 11. This term literally means ‘Christ in’ as the teachings of Paul and company unfolded the Mystery, which is explained fully in the Church Epistles.

    Acts 1:8 “but ye shall receive power after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.” That is the commission He left us; His parting words ought to be important to remember and act upon I should think.

    The modern nation that calls itself Israel is actually the revived kingdom of Judah, which was made up of Judah, Benjamin and part of Levi. The remaining tribes were scattered all over the map. God does know who is descended from whom, so I would not be too swift to say that none from the US of A don’t qualify as being part of “Israel”.

    Again I have to agree with your assessment; now if we could get the militant atheists to see that ‘sowing and reaping’ (a.k.a. the golden rule) would benefit them as well.

    The book of 2 Timothy displays a 4 step demise of any church, which was manifesting itself even in Paul’s lifetime. 1) the churches turn away from “Paul” namely that they cease to teach and believe what is encompassed in the Church Epistles. 2) because of this, they begin to wrongly divide (understand) the scriptures and begin to teach wrong doctrines; 3) when confronted with this expanding error, they resist those who attempt to correct the wrong practices and doctrines; 4) the end result is they are turned from the Truth to fables. We were warned…

    Just how should we act? Give us an enlightened explanation if you please…

    Psalms declares that we are “awesomely and wondrously made”. I prefer to believe what God has said about me rather than someone who has rejected Him says.

    When a pastor receives ‘honoraria’ for doing a wedding or a funeral, it is not charging for the services. I have never known a pastor who would be so crass as to ask a fee for doing something as emotionally charged as a funeral or memorial service.

    Huff:
    For once a subject on which we agree. Cremation is merely a speeded up version of the decay process that any buried body will endure. Unless the rumors are true (!) about a certain denomination having the bones of various apostles.. all of them are dust by now and there is no recognizable remains of them left. God will have to sort out all those molecules that have dispersed.

    The stuff spewing from your mouth suggests that you should include yourself as one who is “an arbiter of reason and common sense.” Physician heal thyself.

    Freun/friend!
    Please re-read what I posted. I did not say to exclude the crucifixion, but did point out that the emphasis of it rather than the Resurrection is not what the Apostle did. What Paul sez is a subject I would like to discuss but do not have time now as work is calling.

    Are you applying for the position of Poster Boy?

    Bee:
    I am well aware of the historical and spiritual significance of the Crucifixion, but it is to the Resurrection that Peter points to (4 times) in his sermon on Pentecost (Acts 2). The Crucifixion is mentioned to be sure, but the emphasis is on the Resurrection. Paul in his recorded sermons also points to the Resurrection. It is true that without the Crucifixion there could be no Resurrection, but without the Resurrection, the Crucifixion is meaningless.

    As a Christian, I am not offended by this depiction. It’s presence, albeit briefly, on a major college campus is par for the course as far as I am concerned. The pursuit of knowledge for the sake of knowledge (professional students?) is just another form of idolatry.

    Do you ever look outside you own tiny back yard? Just because American Christians aren’t being rounded up and sent to re-education camps here doesn’t mean Christianity elsewhere in the world enjoys the relative peaceful existence it has here in America.

    “Jesus dead on the cross” is a de facto denial of the Resurrection. The Resurrection is central to all of Christianity.

    It was “establishment of a religion” of course! What religion it establishes is open to debate, however. My vote is for that worldly attitude that crucified Him the first time. “The Ways of the World” perhaps?

    Did I miss something in Biology and Genetics? I thought there were only x chromosomes and y chromosomes to determine the sex of a human being. Found that ‘gay’ gene yet Blink ol’ buddy?
