    • The beast that goes into Perdition
      I am not riled, I am tired of double standards. Why don't you DEFEND the TRUTH instead of attacking me when I DEFEND not only against personal attacks to my integrity but more importantly to the integrity of a simple biblical declaration being abused in word games huh? WHY? YOU speak English, tell me, What does this say : John 20:17 Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God. Does it say, "God thy God", just being poetic prose, which Therese says it means, whilst saying that I AM TWISTING THE SCRIPTURES like I were a bad character of dubious intentions, or is it Jesus explaining WHERE He is going and to tell Mary to give the SAME message to the Apostles so THEY would know WHERE He was going to BEFORE He came to see them? Please ANSWER.
    • The beast that goes into Perdition
      Is that what Therese was saying? That when God said that a woman should cover her head when praying (as I discern it by your answers?) that "covering" merely means HAIR???? And what, are ANY others agreeing? God forbid. Oh boy .. oh boy .. oh boy .. we might be dealing with freemasons here brother .. or Cabbalists (which is Satanism dressed up), or a cult group of Jesuit teachings, all these are part of their bigger brother's doings  .. the ILLUMINATI. I am being serious too .. I have looked into what's going on in the attack on Christ's word .. ALL these groups are "IN" the churches and "church" groups posing as disciples of Christ for to corrupt and DESTROY God's written word and their followers are what is officially termed as "useless idiots" (not MY descriptive for those ignorant ones who are being used) .. let us be alert to their word games and scripture twisting they so shamelessly practice. If you disagree with THERESE, then I am with you on this, what a shameless display of twisting the scriptures for personal bias. For a woman to cover her head when praying means just that, put a covering over her long hair .. at least YOU and I are speaking ENGLISH here .. I'm positive many here are better at speaking Greek or Hebrew than they are at English, I mean, it is not even subtle, you cant really call what they are doing as simple mistakes, it is outright deception and word twisting at play here .. undoubtedly ulterior motives are at work.  
    • Could America (NYC) be the great harlot...
      Hi WilliamL, Now to the Great Harlot who is in the great city. If, as you say that it is RCC in Rome, then how do these scriptures match up. `Mystery, Babylon the Great, the Mother of Prostitutes & of the Abominations of the earth.`(Rev. 17: 5) Note not just the abominations of the RCC. `And the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth.` (Rev. 17: 18) I don`t think the Moslems would agree that the RCC reigns over them. `And in her was found the blood of prophets & saints, & all who were slain on the earth.`(Rev. 17: 24) And that speaks of people, even before there was a RCC.   Marilyn.
    • Could America (NYC) be the great harlot...
      Hi WilliamL, Here are some excerpts from the International Herald Tribune. You may find them interesting. Unesco intends to put the magic back in Babylon By Jeffrey Gettleman The New York Times
      FRIDAY, APRIL 21, 2006 Babylon. Its name has had a magical ring since time immemorial.    Iraqi leaders and UN officials ........are working assiduously to restore Babylon, home to the Hanging Gardens, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. They want to turn it into a cultural center and possibly even an Iraqi theme park.   No one is saying it is going to happen any time soon, but what makes the Pollyannaish project even conceivable is that the area around Babylon is among the safest in Iraq, a beacon of civilization once again in a land of much chaos.   Ancient Babylon, celebrated as a fount of law, writing and urban living, sits just outside the modern city of Hilla, about 100 kilometers, or 60 miles, south of Baghdad. Hilla is neither haunted by Sunni insurgents nor overwhelmed by Shiite militia and, while it is home to both Shiites and Sunnis, it has not been afflicted by the sectarian violence that has paralyzed so many other parts of Iraq.   Emad Lafta al-Bayati, Hilla's mayor, has big plans for Babylon. "I want restaurants, gift shops, long parking lots," he said. God willing, he added, maybe even a Holiday Inn.     The UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization is pumping millions of dollars into Babylon and a handful of other sites. It has even printed a snazzy brochure to give to wealthy donors. "Cultural tourism could become Iraq's second biggest industry, after oil," explained Philippe Delanghe, a United Nations official helping with the project.     Then Saddam Hussein arrived. And if anyone had big Babylon plans, he did.   He started in 1985 with a project that was part restoration, part new construction and all ego. He imported thousands of Sudanese laborers - Iraqis were tied up with the Iran-Iraq war - to build an ancient-looking palace right on top of Nebuchadnezzar's original one. Walls more than 12 meters high and stamped with Saddam's name replaced the stumpy mounds of biblical-age mud. To be fair, Saddam did shore up Processional Way, a wide boulevard of ancient stones, and the Lion of Babylon, a black rock sculpture about 2,500 years old.   After the first Gulf War, he commissioned a modern palace, again over some ruins, done in the pyramidal style of a Sumerian ziggurat. He called it Saddam Hill. In 2003, he was about to begin construction on a cable car line stretching over Babylon when the U.S. invasion got in the way.   George, who was field director for Babylon in 1986, said he remembered once scraping a few inches beneath the topsoil and unearthing a "wonderful, little plate."    "One day millions of people will visit Babylon," he said. "I'm just not sure anybody knows when."   (Ref. Some excerpts from the International Herald tribune.)   And some of this was 30 years ago!  Note the `Cultural Organisation of the United Nations` is a key player in this scenario. Also it is home to both the Sunni & Shiites factions of Islam, an important point. So I believe, like the city of Dubai `down the road,` in the Persian Gulf, which relies on tourism, Babylon will also be not only an attraction, but the main destination for tourists, traders, bankers, fashion, etc etc. We`ll just have to `watch this space.` Marilyn.    
    • The beast that goes into Perdition
      To all you translation meddlers of God's written word, who are creating confusion and contradictions by your meddlings, saying NO MAN can understand UNLESS he understands the Greek and the Hebrew etc etc .. which is NON BIBLICAL BTW .. and to those STILL able to think for themselves and see the message and not just the messenger, IF you can still think critically meaning undefiled from modern liberal programming and dumbing down through purposely bad & deteriating educating practices, WHAT does this OVERALL MESSAGE SAY : If we have a perfect Bible in English, don't we need one in every other language? No. And I find it interesting that the same people who accuse me of putting God's word under a "linguistic padlock" are the same people who believe that God's inspired word only exists in "original autographs" that decayed into dust centuries ago. The same people who accuse me of being ethnocentric believe that only people who study Greek and Hebrew can possibly know what God "really said." The following is from Sam Gipp's The Answer Book.
      QUESTION: If there is a perfect Bible in English, doesn't there also have to be a perfect Bible in French, and German, and Japanese, etc.? ANSWER: No. God has always given His word to one people in one language to do one job--convert the world. The supposition that there must be a perfect translation in every language is erroneous and inconsistent with God's proven practice. EXPLANATION: This explanation comes in three parts: the Old Testament, the New Testament, the entire Bible. (1) The Old Testament: It is an accepted fact that, with the exception of some portions of Ezra and Daniel, the Old Testament was written in Hebrew. It is also accepted that it was divinely given to the Jews. Thus God initiates His pattern of operation. He gave His words to one people in only one language. God, apparently unintimidated by modern scholarship, did not feel obligated to supply His words in Egyptian, Chaldean, Syrian, Ethiopian, or any other of the languages in use on the earth at the time the Old Testament was written. (2) New Testament: It is also an accepted fact that the New Testament was written in Greek, Koine Greek to be exact. Again, the Lord apparently saw no reason to inspire a perfect original in all of the languages of the world extant at that time. Only this time, instead of giving His Book to a nation, such as Israel, He simply gave it to the Christians who were told to go out and convert the world (Matthew 28:19). His choice of Greek as the language of the New Testament was obvious in that it was the predominant language of the world at the time. (3) The Entire Bible: It is obvious that God now needed to get both His Old Testament and His New Testament welded together in a language that was common to the world. Only English can be considered such a language. The English language had been developing for many centuries until the late sixteenth century. About that time it finally reached a state of excellence that no language on earth has ever attained. It would seem that God did the rest. He chose this perfect language for the consummation of His perfect Book. First England and later the United States swept the globe as the most powerful nations on earth, establishing English in all corners of the globe as either a primary or secondary language. Today nations who do not speak English must still teach English to many of their citizens. Even nations antagonistic to the West such as Russia and Red China must teach English to their business and military personnel. Thus in choosing English in which to combine His two Testaments, God chose the only language which the world would know. Just as He has shown in His choosing only one language for the Old Testament and only one language for the New Testament, He continued that practice by combining those two testaments in only one language. But let us not forget the fact that, by choosing the English language, God has given us a mandate to carry out the great commission. He did not give us a perfect Bible to set placidly on the coffee table in our living room to let our guests know that we are "religious." He did not give it to us to press a flower from our first date, or to have a record of our family tree. He gave it to us to read! And to tuck under our arm and share with the lost world the good news of Jesus' payment for sin that is found inside. Let's get busy! IT says (reading between the lines) that knowing the GREEK & HEBREW is POINTLESS .. you are just going BACKWARDS trying to UNDO what God has done by CONFIRMING His word in a PERFECT (not mongrel) LANGUAGE where all your word games are SEVERLY RESTRICTED  .. in ENGLISH .. since English can be VERY to the POINT and more resilient to the translation games the meddlers play .. THEY HATE THAT FACT immensely .. STOP changing God's word and show some FAITH in His PROMISE that He would PRESERVE HIS WORD which He ONLY released as ONE COMPILED BOOK containing the COMPLETE scriptures of BOTH Old & New Testaments IN ENGLISH. Get over yourselves and stop playing the translation game, God already DID the work, stop trying to CORRECT Him .. just because men say God couldn't do it (preserve His word) you believe them? Really?
