    He doesn’t follow the law. You mean like you and the rest of the Federales? Is Obamacare the law of the land or not? If O’care is the law (and you certainly say it is) why is it not followed as written?

    What an ignoramus.

    Love how NASA scientists like to put out “artists rendering” pictures probably to woo the average reader to further question or have more doubt about creation. You do realize that the NASA obsession with trying to find ET is rooted in an anti-biblical worldview.

    If Obozocare won, I guess that means they think we (the people) lost.

    1) Bible authors said Jesus was God:
    John 1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was with God in the beginning. The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1 NIV)

    2) Jesus said it plainly:
    Very truly I tell you,” Jesus answered, “before Abraham was born, I am!”
    When talking to Philip “he who has seen me, has seen the Father”

    3) Jewish religious leaders understood exactly what Jesus was saying:

    Jesus answered, “I did tell you, but you do not believe. The works I do in my Father’s name testify about me, but you do not believe because you are not my sheep. My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.” Again his Jewish opponents picked up stones to stone him, but Jesus said to them, “I have shown you many good works from the Father. For which of these do you stone me?” We are not stoning you for any good work,” they replied, “but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, CLAIM TO BE GOD” (John 10)

    Many, many more, if only you would see it and believe it because Jesus claimed it often and plainly.

    “You don’t think of the Bible necessarily as a scientifically accurate source of information”. Why not! There is plenty of scientific accuracy in the Sciptures. As a microbiologist for decades I can give good examples.

    Even today incubation time for growth & detection of molds in lab tests, including US Pharmacopeia standards, typically require incubation time up to 7 days at room temperature.

    Now compare that with the Leviticus 14:

    The Lord said to Moses and Aaron, “When you enter the land of Canaan, which I am giving you as your possession, and I put a spreading mold in a house in that land, the owner of the house must go and tell the priest, ‘I have seen something that looks like a defiling mold in my house.’ The priest is to order the house to be emptied before he goes in to examine the mold, so that nothing in the house will be pronounced unclean. After this the priest is to go in and inspect the house. He is to examine the mold on the walls, and if it has greenish or reddish depressions that appear to be deeper than the surface of the wall, the priest shall go out the doorway of the house and close it up for SEVEN days. On the SEVENTH day the priest shall return to inspect the house. If the mold has spread on the walls, he is to order that the contaminated stones be torn out and thrown into an unclean place outside the town.

    Leviticus is very scientific on foods, washing, skin disorders, quarantine, etc. to prevent infection thousands of years be

    Sirhan,
    One question: You like to state over and over that Paul was a murderer and torturer BEFORE he became a Christian. Tell me, what caused him to do a 180, completely change and go on teaching and defending the gospel he used to hate?

    John,
    I am not being dishonest or misleading, just pointing out that those who define faith (in the context of religious faith) as a “belief without any evidence” are themselves being misleading whether intentional or not and I am trying to correct that. My faith is not blind, It is a firm assurance and trust. As Webster says, “a strong belief or trust in someone or something” I have faith that my wife is trustworthy because she has shown it and demonstrated trustworthiness over and over. This same kind of faith is what I have in God because He is trustworthy, He has demonstrated His love, I have experienced His love and forgiveness, and on and on. I cannot prove it to you, but I am certainly not going on blind faith.

    The article by the author uses the word “believe” (aka FAITH) at least three times. The ASU physicist is quoted “our best HOPE”. All that is missing is some LOVE.

    Unfortunately there was no mention of the GREATEST of these three anywhere.

    For all of you who mistakenly define faith as belief without evidence, the scriptures have the best definition. “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the EVIDENCE of things not seen” (Heb 11:1 KJV)

    One of the first applications for this faith is one verse later: “By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible. (Hebrews 11:3 NIV).

    In other words, the universe had a beginning as the “Big Bang” suggests. No wonder many in athiest camp had rejected the Big Bang because of this implication.

    I don’t know for certain of the “Big Bang”, but if that is HOW God spoke the universe into existence, that’s great with me. It doesn’t conflict with God’s Word or my faith in the least.

    As many have said about the reason for the flood in the movie: “As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were riding in Sport Utility Chariots (SUCs), drinking 32 oz sodas and belching CO2, offering sacrifices to volcanoes so that they would erupt, making too many fires, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about effects of climate change until the flood came and took them all away” (GWV translation).

    Han:
    Since you said: There’s no bigger deceiver than Christianity. Jesus is God or a god along side God?! Jesus died for the sins of the world?! God has a begotten son?! Please, give me a break! If that’s not deception I don’t know what is.

    See my post above. No deception, just the facts as the Scripture says. You are denying what is right in front of you.

    Why don’t you read the Scriptures I quoted over and over. Does it not say who Jesus really is?

  • March 10, 2014 at 4:29am

    …and follow Him for who He really is!

  • March 10, 2014 at 4:25am

    Let’s answer this whole “begotten” thing about Jesus as the Son.

    Begotten is not really the best word. That is more a remnant of the KJV. John 3:16 is better stated “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only (i.e. unique) Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

    I other words, Jesus was not “begotten” from God (and Mary) as if He was a new created person that came into existence like us having children. Scripture is very clear in many places that JESUS IS GOD ETERNAL: “before Abraham was, I AM”, or, “I am the alpha and omega the beginning and the end” or, “And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you BEFORE the world began”, and one more: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1:1, 2, 14 NIV)

    Jesus is eternal, one in essence with the Father, the Son in the triune Godhead, as the creed states “Very God of Very God”. I am getting goose bumps writing this!

    To say or think that the scripture teaches anything other than that of Jesus Christ being God Eternal is to be quite ignorant, deceived, or more likely in willful denial.

    BTW: I sincerely hope Sirhan (and others who read this post) will realize who Jesus really is and

    Part of biblical interpretation is to know the culture and times it was written, to whom at for what reason, and how the author meant it to apply, whether universally for all time or not. There are things that are universal regardless of what millennium we live in, for example the command to love one another.

    To abstain from eating uncooked meat and the blood is a good thing if one wants to avoid possible E. coli infection. It would be like us today teaching the congregation at the after-service potluck to abstain from bloody BBQ hamburgers that were only browned at the surface.

    The versus in Acts 15 made good sense, both for their health and possibly for their conscience since they had likely been engrained with these teachings. Acts 15:21 For the law of Moses has been preached in every city from the earliest times and is read in the synagogues on every Sabbath.” (Acts 15:21 NIV). Like the letter in Acts says: you will do well to avoid these things.

    A blood transfusion is a quite safe medical procedure and not in disobedience to the scripture and unfortunately the JWs are not being taught accurately the application of that teaching for our time.

    Begotten is not the right word. That is more a remnant of KJV. John 3:16 is better stated “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only (i.e. unique) Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16 NIV).

    I other words, Jesus was not begotten as a created being. Scripture is clear on this in many places, “before Abraham was, I AM”, or, “I am the alpha and omega the beginning and the end” or, “And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you BEFORE the world began. (John 17:5 NIV)”, and one more “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.

To say or think that the scripture teaches anything other than that of Jesus Christ as being eternal God is to be either pretty dumb, quite ignorant, or most likely in willful denial.

    What idiotic statements. First they say, we’re due for an El Niño, which could help drought and be beneficial, but also kick in global warming and all it’s “horrors”. So what is it, good or bad, or just a way to continue the climate change narrative since warmer temps are coming (e.g. spring and summer tend to be warmer than winter)

  • March 5, 2014 at 2:32am

    No, that word does equate to using the n- word of today. Goyim can be translated as plural for ” nations”. You’re trying to proclaim Jesus as being intentionally insulting and racist which is nonsense. Jesus used the Good Samaritan parable to make a point about who is really being a neighbor. Hardly a story that would denote derogatory attitude toward Samaritans. I’ll leave you with one last thing.

    In Luke 10:30-36, substitute the priest and the Levite for two Muslim leaders, and a Jewish person instead of the Samaritan. The mugging took place in Palestine region. Wouldn’t that Jewish person be your real neighbor? How would you feel about that good neighbor?

  • March 4, 2014 at 2:13am

    I don’t think Jesus was speaking in King James English translation. That came out in 1611 A.D. in case you didn’t know. Of course I am familiar with the passage, but not the racist tone non- sense that you ascribe to it. Jesus was simply telling them not to go to the non-Israelites or Samaritans, but to the people of Israel. If I may use current English.

  • March 3, 2014 at 4:20am

    Hogwash! Pun intended. Jesus was not referring to non-Jews. Dogs and pigs are just used as metaphors to make a point, not some racist or derogatory term as you have obviously been brainwashed or fed to believe.
