  3. Q. How did they rule? The early nations chose kings to rule over them. The kings however did not govern God`s way of mercy and justice. They developed their own armies and led the people to war against other nations, killing, looting and taking people captive. (Gen. 14: 1 & 2, 11) People chose to worship idols of creation, (sun, moon, stars, animals etc) and put their trust in them rather than to trust the Creator who made them. `they....changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man and birds and four-footed animals..` (Rom. 1: 18: 25) Thus self seeking, greed and misuse of power prevailed with every man having his own ways of behaviour. Life, was not generally respected, so violence, murder, cruelty and even sacrificing of humans, (often children) was common. (Deut. 12: 31) `...every man doing whatever is right in his own eyes.` (Deut. 12: 8, Rom. 1: 26 – 32) Q. Did God make them accountable? God did bring judgment upon the Nations when evil came to a head and they did not repent. But God also showed mercy to those who humbled themselves before Him. `...the Lord said,....their sin is very grave,...` (Gen. 18: 20) `...the King of Heaven...His ways are just, and He is able to humble those who walk in pride.` (Dan. 4: 27 & 37)
  4. yes it's true the lgbtq made it
  5. Is there really such a Bible or are you kidding??
  6. Hi bonnieschamberger and Kwikphilly I have yet to see "The Passion" i have it but just cant sit still long enough to watch a movie.Ha! .. I think Kari Jobe is great thanks for sharing.. God bless
  7. True, but there are limits, for example "The Queen James Bible", most likely a gender inclusive edition.
  8. Do you need to obey the ten commandments to be saved?~~yes God gave us the ten commandments as a way to know what we had to do to be perfect before him, he accepts nothing less than a totally Holy life to spend eternity with him. He is Holy and only Holy people can spend eternity with him. So if you try and keep the Ten Commandments and fail, you are no longer Holy and are now inedible for heaven. Bible says if you break one of the commandments , you have broken them all. All through history people have been aware that God had standards and they tried to make up for their failure to meet his expectations--- failure means separation from God, no entry into heaven- eternity in hell, they knew instinctively that they failed, but tried to make up for it somehow-- But God would not except their filthy pathetic attempts. God knows we cannot meet his requirements for heaven, How can a loving God have standards so high that no one can meet them?? Is that really Love??? He is sovereign and Holy, he can do as he pleases. The good news is that he pleases Him to help us. He does not lower his standards because to do so would allow sin and he has a clear picture of what it would be like for an eternal being to have to live in sin forever, so what he did instead was to come down to where we live right here on planet earth, get his feet dirty and his hair wet when it rains, tired and hungry just like us. Bible says his name is Emmanuel~~God, with us. Jesus, our Emmanuel lived a perfect life. Dirty feet, wet hair- hungry, tired for 33 years and did not break one of the Ten Commandments- ever- not one. God says if we break a commandment we must die ( The wages of sin is death) Jesus did not break any commandments, he was exempt from death- Jesus could live forever in his earthly body- he did not have to experience the pain and fear of death. God had said that the only way to pay for sin was with perfect blood. The Bible says the Life is in the blood--- to shed Blood means to die. A goat, a bull, a lamb, was not equal to a man, but the animals blood was used to symbolize the fact that perfect blood was coming. When you go into a store and see a sign on an item that says “SOLD” its sold, but it hasn’t been paid for yet—the traditional animal blood sacrifice marked the believer “sold” but not paid for yet. When Jesus Shed his blood- the price was paid. The bible says not one jot or title of the law ( ten commandments) will pass away- that means always the ten commandments where the standard for Gods acceptance. Jesus said “ I come not to abolish the law, but to fulfil it” He meant, I know you can’t keep it, but I am not going to make it go away, but I will keep it for you. How?- here’s a picture- you are old weak and feeble, there is a big snow storm that dumps many inches of snow on your driveway- there is no way you can get rid of the snow. Some one who cares for you comes and shovels your snow away~~~ Jesus care- he shovels away our sin. So, what does this all mean for the pathetic helpless sinner going to hell? It means that God is a loving God, it means there is hope, it means you can be Holy and be with God in heaven. HOW, PLEASE GOD TELL ME HOW. Believe Gods Word, Bible says he shows his love for us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for the ungodly, Jesus perfect life could be credited to us, his shed blood would be the perfect sacrifice to pay for our sin. Christ said, “whoever comes to me I will not cast out”,, “whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved” “the righteous shall live by faith” “And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.”~~~~ for us also, believe God paid for your sin and be a friend of God He will see you as Holy based on what Christ did for us We cannot obey the Ten commandments, but Jesus did it for us , if you trust him and accept the fact that he did-=-- that is the only key to heaven for sinners like us Baptism Church membership Sinners prayer Asking Jesus into your heart Sincerely trying to be good Tithing and charitable acts~~~~~ All tickets to hell, only faith in Gods promise that Jesus lived the commandments for us, and still died and shed his blood as a sacrifice that we could not pay, --- only simple faith in that alone will make you holy enough to see God in heaven
  9. A mature christian would not be bogged down by Bible versions, but would know the history of the early Bible versions and how as the modern era expanded from the horse and buggy to cars and trucks, so the Bible has it's revolution with organisations or publishing houses coming up with versions for people to get a modern day understanding of scripture. How a christian sees that is how he look at the message of the Bible and how it relates to his salvation. Once he sees the criteria for his salvation , then he learns as he goes along, there will always be tares amongst the wheat and it is a life long learning process. If one is being dogmatic about which is God's word, then he learns, so let it be and goes on with his life and not be triggered into hyper ??. Now, when he gets into the pre-destination and OSAS matters ect, then bring out the versions and have some dialogue. Nothing is wrong with that. It's a journey of a lifetime, that never seems end .
  10. This all goes to show, that even if we had the original autographs we would still fight over which translation was the best one.
  11. Yes, many times even though I also stated that no translation is perfect, without error.
  12. oh. never mind then. I can't stand boredom
  13. I can also sit perfectly still in boredom without being strained
  14. That can be a symptom of ADHD - hyper focus

  23. The story about the birthday is not reality concerning this scripture. I've checked it on three programs and asked an acquaintance who worked at JPL if they were correct. The Rev scripture has never happened before.
  24. Thank you
  25. Just one correction from my point of view, the Vine is Jesus, so we are grafted into Christ, not into the bloodline of Jewish people.
