    • I never said that it was made up (although, being raised Catholic, the children might also have heard of other such "appearances of Mary", so perhaps they were influenced by past reports of her appearing) No one living today can verify whether or not the children actually saw or heard anything. I tend to believe they did, however, and that "the miracle of the sun" may have indeed been a real event, but not a miracle of God.
    • You conveniently left out this part of the context... For we did not follow cleverly devised myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty. For when he received honor and glory from God the Father, and the voice was borne to him by the Majestic Glory, "This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased," we ourselves heard this very voice borne from heaven, for we were with him on the holy mountain.
      (2Pe 1:16-18) So Peter is establishing the Apostle's Words as Scripture as much as the Prophets of Old. Thus... 2Peter 1:19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:
    • I have a theory that I want to share and see how everyone feels about this.  On average, it takes about 7 years for every cell in the body to die and be replaced.  It takes 21 years for an infant to become an adult.  During this time period the cells are not only being replaced but they are also being transformed to create an adult.  But after 21 the seven year cycle only replaces dead cells. Now, if you have ever made copies of a copy on a copy machine you will have a loss of picture quality.  If you keep making copies of copies, the picture will eventually be totally unrecognizable.  I believe the spiritual entity we call sin is expressed in all creation as entropy which is the progressive decay of all things.  I believe that the spiritual entity called sin is why we change through aging.  The cycle from 21 to 28 has a slight difference, and we call it a mature look.  Twenty Eight to 35 brings us to middle age and the look changes a little more, but still has that youthful look.  But add another 7 years and keep going we replication is even more off, so much so that when we hit our 70's, 80's and 90's the replication is so far off we have organ failure and natural death. Now here is my theory.  Jesus was born sinless. His cells still died and regrew, otherwise he could not have grown up.  But is it possible that after 21 the cell replication remained perfect? And if so that means, even though he was crucified at the age of 33, his appearance remained that of a 21 year old?  This might be a reason that John, who was a teenager during the Earthly ministry of Christ, was drawn to him. What do you all think?
    • You mean I rewrote pre trib, with absolute pleasure  
    • Man realizes the importance of setting one day aside to worship God. Nevertheless, he has tried to change God's set time and law of Sabbath worship. "And he shall speak great words against the most High...and think to change times and laws..." (Daniel 7:25). This change went into effect on March 7, 321 A.D., by Emperor Constantine of Rome. Constantine, "...enjoined Sunday rest from labor, except agricultural" (Encyclopedia Britannica, Vol. 21, 1945). It is even recorded that Constantine used violence to enforce his new law, because the seventh day Sabbath was still being observed by true servants of God. Now if it would seem blasphemous for people to change their day of worship today, how do you think God felt when man changed his? Satan had caused the second commandment to be ripped out. But he wasn't finished. The leaders changed the fourth one also!

      The change of the fourth commandment was attempted gradually over a period of time so as not to arouse anyone. But the change is a masterpiece of Satan's work.
      Get ready for a shock.

      The following mind-boggling statements were made by church authorities and are documented.

      "Question - Have you any other way of proving that the church (Roman Catholic) has power to institute festivals of precept?

      "Answer - Had she not such power, she could not have done that in which all modern religionists agree with her - she could not have substituted the observance of Sunday, the first day of the week, for the observance of Saturday, the seventh day, a change for which there is no scriptural authority." A Doctrinal Catechism. by Stephen Keenan,pg. 174.
      That's incredible!

      "The Catholic church," declared Cardinal Gibbons, "by virtue of her divine mission changed the day from Saturday to Sunday." Again the question is asked to them:

      Question - Which is the Sabbath day?

      "Answer - Saturday is the Sabbath day.

      "Question - Why do we observe Sunday instead of Saturday?

      "Answer - We observe Sunday instead of Saturday because the
      Catholic Church, in the Council of Laodicea (A.D. 364), transferred the solemnity from Saturday to Sunday." The Convert's Catechism of Catholic Doctrine, pg. 50, 3rd ed.

      What does the fourth commandment actually say? Here it is
      "Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it." Exodus 20:8-11.

      Do church authorities acknowledge that there is no command in the Bible for the sanctification of Sunday?
      They do! Look at this

      The Catholic Cardinal Gibbons, in Faith of Our Fathers. pg. 111, said, "You may read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation and you will not find a single line authorizing the sanctification of Sunday. The Scriptures enforce the religious observance of Saturday, a day which we never sanctify."

      You see, in the Council of Trent (1545 A.D.), the church leaders ruled that "tradition" is of as great authority as the Bible! They believed that God had given them the authority to change the Bible any way they pleased. By "tradition" they meant human teachings.

      Jesus said, "But in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men." Matthew 15:9.
      Just as they had brought images into the church to make it easier for the pagans to come in, they changed the Sabbath of the Bible for the same reason.

      I am being stalked (or trolled).  So I am cutting off all communication for awhile.  [I am somewhat paranoid about privacy.]  I am not leaving Worthy as I consider it HOME, or at the very least an extension of my home.  I consider most people here with the highest respect, whether I agree with them or not.   That doesn't always come across which is my fault.  My postings will be few and far between for awhile.  I have "un-followed" all content, shutoff followers (some time back), and disabled profile visitors.
      Thank you to those who have prayed for my bulging discs at C5, C6 and C7.  Your prayers have been most welcome.

      1 Timothy 4:12-16
      12 Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity. 13 Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine. 14 Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery. 15 Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all. 16 Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.
