    You became a Christian by being in agreement that the Bible is honest? I am curious....as to where you stand in belief of Christ? Not doubting any of your sincerity....just wish to hear your testimony as to how you came to know Christ as your Savior and believe in Him.

  6. Hippie333 added a post in a topic SONS OF GOD;WHO ARE THEY;JOB 1:6 & GENESIS 6:2   

    Gen 6:1  When man began to multiply on the face of the land and daughters were born to them,
    Gen 6:2  the sons of God saw that the daughters of man were attractive. And they took as their wives any they chose.
    Gen 6:3  Then the LORD said, "My Spirit shall not abide in man forever, for he is flesh: his days shall be 120 years."
    That the (a) sons of God saw the daughters (b) of men that they [were] © fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
    (a) The children of the godly who began to degenerate.
    (b) Those that had wicked parents, as if from Cain.
    © Having more respect for their beauty and worldly considerations than for their manners and godliness.
    The sons of God saw the daughters of men — By the former is meant the family of Seth, who were professedly religious; by the latter, the descendants of apostate Cain. Mixed marriages between parties of opposite principles and practice were necessarily sources of extensive corruption. The women, religious themselves, would as wives and mothers exert an influence fatal to the existence of religion in their household, and consequently the people of that later age sank to the lowest depravity.............
    Genesis 6:4
    There were giants in the earth in those days,.... That is, in the days before the sons of God took the daughters of men for wives, in such a general manner as before declared, or before the declension and apostasy became so universal; even in the times of Jared, as the Arabic writers  understand it, who say that these giants were begotten on the daughters of Cain by the children of Seth, who went down from the mountain to them in the days of Jared, Gen_5:20 the word "Nephilim" comes from a word which signifies to fall; and these might be so called, either because they made their fear to fall upon men, or men, through fear, to fall before them, because of their height and strength; or rather because they fell and rushed on men with great violence, and oppressed them in a cruel and tyrannical manner; or, as some think, because they fell off and were apostates from the true religion, which is much better than to understand them of apostate angels, whom the Targum of Jonathan mentions by name, and calls them Schanchazai and Uziel, who fell from heaven, and were in the earth in those days:
    and also after that, which shows that the preceding clause respects giants in former times:  when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, came into their houses and chambers, and lay with them:   and they bare children unto them, or giants unto them, as may be supplied from the former clause; for the sense is, as there were giants before this general defection, so there were at this time, when there was a mixture of the Cainites and Sethites; which were the offspring of the sons of God, or posterity of Seth, mixing with the daughters of men, or the posterity of Cain; for this is not to be understood after the flood, as Aben Ezra, Ben Melech; and so they are described in the following words:
    the same became mighty men; for tallness and strength, for power and dominion, for tyranny and oppression:    which were of old: like those that were of old before; or who in after times were spoken of, as in the days of old:     men of renown, or "of name"..... whose names were often made mention of, both for their size and for their wickedness; they were much talked of, and extolled for their exploits, and even wicked ones: they were famous men, or rather infamous; for some men get a name in the world, not for their goodness, but for their greatness, and sometimes for their great wickedness; which sense is countenanced by what follows: that there were giants in these early times is confirmed by the testimony of many Heathen writers; such were the Titans that made war against Saturn, begotten by Ouranus, who were not only of bulky bodies, but of invincible strength, as Apollodorus  relates, and Berosus speaks of a city about Lebanon, called Enos, which was a city of giants, who were men of vast bodies, and of great strength, inventors of arms and music, were cannibals, and exceedingly debauched

    Let's please stay on topic and not keep getting personal with each other. Please stay in discussion of the topic, and in kind. The truth can be stated firmly, boldly without making personal jabs at each other.  As a reminder ...these are the reasons threads get locked and closed...I would prefer it not go that route and thru this discussion God's Word be shared.

  10. Hippie333 added a post in a topic So...I was just sayin? ....What do you mean how I said it?   

    the thread is simply the scripture itself.... the title I had a bit of sarcasm in my head when I titled it. ...
    Imagine two people having a conversation...one is calling the other one out on their not so gracious way of addressing someone else...It's a one sided question and reply to one's self ....but I was just sayin! .... What do you mean how I said it? ...we could put in the other side of the conversation with whatever application applies to that person. Bob, you just X, Y and Z'd Susan with what you said..... "But Tom, I was just sayin!".... ... It's not what you said Bob, it was how you said it......... What do you mean how I said it?? ... How I said it in my head with sarcasm...was actually Bob's reply to Tom.. so to speak

    Just an FYI....there is no hidden agenda, message or intent...it applies universally, not specifically to any one person or group in any area. Just to clarify the topic title - It's not always what we say that matters but also how we say it. Truth is the truth yes, but without love, and lifting our brothers and sisters up when we say it ...supporting each other...who listens? Because we are right, and say it wrong....means we are still wrong.
     It was not really something I thought that would be tossed into debate so quickly over the intent, meaning or who it was for....it just was what it was.
    God Bless,
