    You know this was inspiring to learn about and watch the video. However, I believe this kid and his group made a big mistake. They gave away their design ‘open sourced’ it. Why? So another company can profit from it? Because their isn’t any private people who are going to have a 3D printer and skills to make one of these. What is wrong with bettering the world with a MUCH more affordable, better product while making a living at it. If a poorer design was fetching $60K and his could be sold at $6K while still making a profit – good on ya!! I think this kid made a big mistake…hearts in the right place, but big mistake.

    That was just great!! What a thrill and one of those moments in life where a mixture of skill and luck meet. Good for him.

    Yeah that is what I was thinking. I think mom may be a bit delusional that her daughters ‘innocence’ was taken away. Sounds like they may be digging for a bit more from Sprint than a new phone…

    This will be my last post :)

    There are 7 ‘Laws’ mentioned by Paul. You won’t hear this teaching in any Christian church.

    1) The Law of God
    Rom 3:31; 7:22-25; 8:7

    2) The Law of Sin
    Rom 7:23-25

    3) The Law of Sin and Death
    Rom 8:2

    4) The Law of The Spirit of Life
    Rom 8:2

    5) The Law of Faith
    Rom 3:27

    6) The Law of Righteousness
    Rom 9:31

    7) The Law of Christ
    1 Cor 9:21

    When this is understood it gives insight that not every time that Paul wrote ‘Law’ or ‘law’ it was translated properly. The translators used one word for many variations of what Paul was writing, which does not do any favors to the reader of today.

    Bottom line is Christians point to Paul to justify their faith that has been handed down through traditions of men not God. The only way the Instructions of God can be dismissed as they are taught by the church is if scripture is twisted and overlooked/ignored. Christ IS important, without Him we’d have nothing yet separating God’s Instructions (Laws) from Christ defies the words of the Father, Messiah, the Prophets and what all the N.T. writers wrote.

    And remember Christ himself told us who He came for “I came for the lost sheep of Israel’ (i.e. the remnant). I enjoyed our discussion and pray that you will test your understanding as the Bereans tested Paul’s writings against the Scriptures (Torah) to make sure they lined up…which they did (Act 17:11) and he passed :)

    Paul was a great man after God’s heart. Yet was Paul conflicted or does 2Peter 3:15-18 ring true? There are more but there isn’t room for them to all fit.

    Pro Law
    Act 25:8 While he answered for himself, Neither against the law of the Jews, neither against the temple, nor yet against Caesar, have I offended anything at all.

    Anti Law
    Rom 6:14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
    (This scripture is not referring to the Torah….it’s referring to the law of sin and death. And by the way, Torah and grace are not exclusive of each other.)

    Pro Law
    Act 24:12-14 And they neither found me in the temple disputing with any man, neither raising up the people, neither in the synagogues, nor in the city: (13) Neither can they prove the things whereof they now accuse me. (14) But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law (Torah) and in the prophets:

    Anti Law
    1Co 9:21 To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law.

    Pro Law
    Rom 3:31 Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.

    Anti Law Gal 2:16
    Pro Law Rom 7:12
    Anti Law Gal 5:8
    Pro Law Php 3:5-6

    Either Paul is putting Scripture in conflict or he is being misunderstood – can’t be both. And one last thing…to follow again.

    Hi again, it’s interesting that you won’t view the video but chances are you’ll sit through a message or video at church, which the the purpose of church is to challenge your understanding and of course that should be tested against scripture. Seems biased and close minded, but alright.

    You say that Jesus came to fulfill what man couldn’t do. First you might want to study the application of the word ‘fulfill’. By mentioning both the Torah(Law) and the Prophets Christ is saying that he has not come to modify or replace God’s Word, the Tanakh. Compare Lk 24:44-45 44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me. 45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures…” My friend have the Prophets been ‘fulfilled’ as you say? No. Has earth and heavens passed away? No. “For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass away from the law, till all things be accomplished.”…has everything been accomplished? No. Christ is part of the plan but not the end of the plan.

    And you are correct the Set Apart Spirit is to make us more like Christ, which He obeyed the Fathers commands (Law) perfectly as our example not so we don’t have to be obedient.

    Running out of room again but look at the following post…

    If you are not opposed to testing your scriptural understanding try this part 1 or 4 videos. Seriously, just go through them as you can fit them in and truly test these to see if they are scripturally in error.

    I’ve had many, many conversations with Christians regarding this very topic and Paul is their go to guy! Consider this; Paul was a Rabbi, spoke highly of the Law so if he was teaching against the Law he puts himself in conflict with scripture and what he wrote. In Acts what was he brought to trial for? He was accused of teaching against the Law. This was a false accusation that he denied. Yet the church still teaches that Paul taught against the Law of God.

    Read 2Peter 3:15 And count the patience of our Lord as salvation, just as our beloved brother Paul also wrote to you according to the wisdom given him, as he does in all his letters when he speaks in them of these matters. There are some things in them that are hard to understand, which the ignorant and unstable twist to their own destruction, as they do the other Scriptures. You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, take care that you are not carried away with the error of lawless people and lose your own stability.

    Look what Peter is saying – there are things that are hard to understand, which the ignorant and unstable twist to their own destruction, as they do the other Scriptures. Followed by ‘…don’t be carried away with the error of lawless people and lose your own stability.” “Lawless people”?? And don’t ‘lose your own stability’ – stability in what, being lawless? No, stability in the Law!

    I challenge you to test your understanding, see next post with link I’ve run out of room….

    Vesties, with all due respect I am thankful you are a believer however sadly the Christian faith that you are following requires a believer to twist what the scriptures say and formulate a different doctrine than what the scriptures teach. Messiah walked out Torah perfectly and we are to walk as He did. Blind faith, that of the simplistic ‘I’m covered by grace’ is only the very tip of the iceberg. Realize that in the following scripture Christ was talking about a believer: Matt 7:21“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ 23And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’
    What ‘does the will of my Father’ mean? Are you a ‘worker of lawlessness’? Something to pray about…or not. ;)

    Hi Vesties,

    Some thing to consider; you mention ‘the spirit’ which I will assume you mean ‘holy spirit’ or a better translation is ‘set apart spirit’. I would challenge you to study what the purpose is of the set apart spirit – it’s to guide you in His righteousness, which again is His instructions. You are confusing the purpose of the Law and Messiah, they serve different purposes yet work together. The two commands you note are Torah Law, the 10 commandments are Torah Law…Christ said Matt 22:40 “On these two commandments depend (or hangs) all the Law and the Prophets.” – twisting the Word you can only come up with these are the only two commandments to do. You are correct that only by Messiah anyone is saved…however, why then did Messiah say “IF you love me you will obey my commands”? Obedience is the fruit of our salvation. Obedience to what? Love? What is ‘Love’ – love is obedience to His Word – what is the ‘Word’? The New Testament, is that the ‘Word’? No, all the N.T. writers when mentioning the “Word’ meant referred to what was important to them ‘Torah’. They are intertwined. It’s not a one way street that you just ‘believe’ and you’re ‘in’. Last point, read Micah 4 and notice what is going to be taught in the 1000 Sabbath, yep Torah! Isaiah 2 echoes the same. So tell me why would a God who doesn’t change give us His instructions, take them away only to bring them back again? That’s not the consistent God I know. So who are you following?

  • [1] January 26, 2015 at 12:13pm

    Hi Vesties,
    Grace is nothing new, read the O.T. You realize that Messiah was our example in all things right? Do you realize that He followed Torah Law (The Fathers Instructions) perfectly? Are we not to ‘walk as He walked’? Remember there has to be a ‘standard’ or ‘bar’ so to speak that showed that Messiah was ‘sinless’ and as John wrote ‘sin is lawlessness’ meaning someone without law. Torah Law is that ‘standard’. What you are claiming is nothing new, this is what was changed by men, more specifically by Constantine. Do you realize that by saying that we are only under ‘grace’ that puts scripture in conflict with itself? The Prophets, Messiah, what all the writers in the N.T. wrote – all of it – in conflict. I realize there is nothing that I can say that will allow you to hear anything differently that what you are set on. However, seek the Father on this and pray for Him to reveal His truth to you, not man’s truth.

  • [1] January 26, 2015 at 11:27am

    The term ‘Spiritual Revival’ is interesting. Since Constantine we have been taught that God’s Instructions (Laws) have been done away with, are ‘bondage’, ‘legalism’ and a ‘yoke’ when scripture states that it’s ‘Freedom’, ‘Righteous’, ‘Good’. Today’s church claims that Messiah taught something different than what was taught in the Old Testament, yet Christ said that He ‘only spoke the words of the Father’ not His own. God and Messiah both stated that they ‘never change’ yet the church teaches that they did.

    Messiah taught that we are to ‘do’ the Law (Matt 23:1-3) because that is what is taught out of the seat of Moses in synagog. So was Messiah only joking? Did he only mean to ‘do’ the Law until he was crucified? Of course not! As Paul says if it weren’t for the Law he would have not know sin (Rom 7:7) – the Law were never intended to ‘save’ anyone but only show us what sin is. Messiah’s purpose as He stated that He only came for the lost sheep of Israel (Matt 15:24) for sin. God knew that His Instructions (Laws) did not conflict with Messiah’s sacrifice – one was for sins and the other told us what sin is. Yet the church teaches differently – deviating the majority away from God’s intent, sounds like the garden all over again. “For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths

    “Should uh, could uh, would uh,,,,every body’s a critic. Hey NAACP teach your precious kids to obey the laws and not carry illegal guns and run from cops.

    Dump coins all together! They’re pretty much worthless and a hassle.

  • [1] January 23, 2015 at 12:37pm

    Let’s be real clear, I’m sure a god did tell him these things…but it sure wasn’t the God of Abraham! People think that satan can’t influence our behavior, the old say, ‘the devil made me do it’ is more correct than people want to think or admit.

    Consider something else where is satan most interested in deceiving people? Church. This is why testing everything that is taught at church must be tested against scripture. Here lies the problem…most people leave the understanding of scripture to the pastor or those who go to seminary. Big mistake. Where do you think satan is teaching his false teachings the most? Yep seminary.

    Easy solution: 3rd Party secure the balls before game. Multiple people holding multiple keys that need each other to open holding pen. Simple.

  • [7] January 22, 2015 at 3:17pm

    I’ve seen women at churches who dress like their going to a night club and think, ‘did you look at yourself before you left the house?’ This woman is dead on in her convictions and those who think she is ‘off’ need to reevaluate what ‘god’ they say they believe in.
