  1. False doctrine

    Then you need to read Galatians 3: " But before faith came, we were kept in custody under the law, being shut up to the faith which was later to be revealed. Therefore the Law has become our tutor to lead us to Christ, so that we may be justified by faith. But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a tutor. For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to promise." (Galatians 3:23-29, NASB, emphasis mine)
  2. False doctrine

    Four times: 1) The first set of tablets He gave to Moses 2) The second set He gave to Moses, that Moses had to go carve out of the rock after he smashed the first set 3) When Jesus wrote on the ground, when the crowd brought Him the woman caught in Adultery 4) When He writes His laws on our hearts and upon the hearts of Israel, as Scripture tells us (Romans 2:15, Hebrews 8:10, Hebrews 10:16)
  3. Churches losing members. Why do you suppose?

    Yeah...they would have probably tried to "counsel" Jesus on "how to grow His church"! O.o
  4. Leg Infection

    Leg is progressing very slowly; the doctor wasn't in today, so i have to wait until monday. But if it takes a turn for the worse, I'll visit the ER (or ED as others may call it). Thank you everyone for your prayers; I really appreciate it.
  5. Dietary need for animal products

    I think you grilled the poor man enough there, noone. It's rare for a conversation like this to go on on Worthy, considering the people embroiled in it. But rather than skewer one another in a debate and stew in our own juices, I think it's time for me to depart, as this topic has been "well done".
  6. Dietary need for animal products

    Yes, and with much at steak.....
  7. Why do people hate Paul Washer?

    Ah, gotcha. You're speaking of "cheap grace" then.
  8. Why do people hate Paul Washer?

    So you're saying Christians never sin after they are saved?
  9. Mystery Babylon status rev.17

    I'm not going to turn this into a conspiracy debate; there's enough of those on the board as it stands.. In the interest of keeping this topic on-track, I'm withdrawing from it. -Sojo414 out.

    It is sad, but I do not believe that a conspiracy brought down those buildings. I seek no argument with you, Warriror12; I just do not consider our government to be like that. To the topic at hand: my warning is that when CT theories get going, the truth is not discovered, but rather buried in a mountain of paranoia, half-truths, stories and guesswork. When it comes to "Mystery Babylon" in Revelation 17 (I'm currently in that book and just read that chapter last night, coincidentally), I believe that it's going to be a capitol city that is built as a compromise between all the nations after the Rapture takes place and the Tribulation begins. A "World Capitol" if you will that is not part and parcel to any one nation, but a place that would be able to bring all the remnant of the planet together economically as well as socially and other means.

    "Rothschild dynasty"? Thank you for telling me you're into Conspiracy Theories and FUD ("Fear, Uncertainty and Doom"); it makes it a lot easier to refute nonsense when you know the source of it. Things like: - "Bilderbergers" - "Illuminati" - "Opus Dei" - "Jesuits" - "CFR" (Council on Foreign Relations) - "Tri-Lateral Commission" - "HAARP" - "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion" - Lizard People - "Chemtrails" - "Georgia Stones" - "Blood Libel" - "9-11/ "Truther" - "Sandy Hook / False Flag" - "Barney the Dinosaur" And all the other lovely little "theories" brought to you by such visionary crackpots like David Icke, Alex Jones, Texe Marrs, Mark Dice and the whole raving bunch of whackaloons.
  12. Soul Extraction Machine.

    That's not "having no soul"; Scripture never says that a human soul cam be removed by Satan, a device, or anyone else aside from the Lord. And "sold themselves"? Here's what Scripture says: "Then they made their sons and their daughters pass through the fire, and practiced divination and enchantments, and sold themselves to do evil in the sight of the LORD, provoking Him. " (2 Kings 17:17, NASB, emphasis mine) If you look at 1 Kings 21:20, we see the same phrase here, only used Elijah to describe Ahab: " Ahab said to Elijah, "Have you found me, O my enemy?" And he answered, "I have found you, because you have sold yourself to do evil in the sight of the LORD." (1 Kings 21:20, NASB, emphasis mine) It is a comparison of being entirely devoted to wickedness and evil to "selling ones self into slavery", as worshiping an idol or being consumed by desire has many similarities to slavery. But this is a descriptive warning to those who devote themselves to such wickedness, not a literal practice of "selling one's soul" per se. Satan doesn't give you a bag of gold and in return reach down your gullet and yank it out by the collar, and neither does any machine. What really bothers me here is the whole "No one else can see this, but God bestowed a special gift to me" line of thinking. This tries to make it to where no one can argue with the person who claims this, as "they alone have the gift" and no one can "call them on it". It very much resembles the claim Joseph Smith made when he claimed to see "golden plates" and no one else did. So, with that said: if (just for the sake of argument) such a way or device did exist to remove someone's soul, then you have several large problems: 1) Why wouldn't Satan be using this to remove the souls of believers and thus ridding himself of a lot of trouble? 2) If "the signs are always there", then why did you only see one? You said "Typically, God turns my head", so that confuses understanding a bit, as it implies there were more than one sighting you made. On that note, you forgot the Scriptural reference, so let's look at this in context: " “Now you, son of man, set your face against the daughters of your people who are prophesying from their own inspiration. Prophesy against them and say, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD, “Woe to the women who sew magic bands on all wrists and make veils for the heads of persons of every stature to hunt down lives! Will you hunt down the lives of My people, but preserve the lives of others for yourselves? For handfuls of barley and fragments of bread, you have profaned Me to My people to put to death some who should not die and to keep others alive who should not live, by your lying to My people who listen to lies.”’ (Ezekiel 13:17-19, NASB, emphasis mine) The term "sew pillows to armholes", or more appropriately "sew magic bands on all wrists" is delineated by the Hebrew word ke·sa·to·vt, (3704, Strongs) which means "band or fillet".The Hebrew word used for lives here is ne·fa·sho·vt (5315, Strongs), which means "living being, soul, life, person). It's not talking about "taking a soul from the body", but rather, ensnaring a person. In other words: the practice being used here was the act of "magical" charms or bands being incorporated into veils or clothing in order to lure people. They weren't "ripping souls out of folks". 3) If it were impossible for Satan to do so to believers, then why doesn't Scripture speak of the device/ way to remove a soul specifically in the New Testament as a warning, like Paul does about "running the race" and "being disqualified"? You'd think the Lord would warn us of such a danger if it were that grave, seeing as He warned us through Paul; of other dangers. 4) If someone had the ability to see that a person's soul was removed, then don't you think the next one the forces of Satan would want to go after and perform that same procedure on is whoever had that gift? ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Readers- A person's soul is the "real them"; without it, a person would not exist and the body would simply be a lifeless, empty shell devoid of any capacity to move, breathe, talk, think or anything. And that this idea (as mentioned previously by Morning Glory) came from a Creative Writing site should state the glaringly obvious. I really think this has gone about the limit of what reasonable discussion is capable of, as any further claims are just going to revolve around the insistence that "it really does exist!!". Since no proof exists aside from hearsay and anecdotal stories, there's no real way to confirm it. It's just nonsense folks; please treat it as such. -Sojo414

    I believe I touched on that earlier, as well as the fact that it's a "plot device" used in a Star Wars novel series.

    So, what you're saying here is: we're all stupid but you?

    Funny, Jesus beat you to it about 2000 years ago when He gave john the Revelation. And no, Jesus didn't tell you what no one was to write down; that violates Rev. 22:18. In fact, Revelation is clear that only the Lamb who was slain could open them. Do you think you're the lamb or something? Okay...where did you have your honeymoon? "I saw in the right hand of Him who sat on the throne a book written inside and on the back, sealed up with seven seals. And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the book and to break its seals?” And no one in heaven or on the earth or under the earth was able to open the book or to look into it. Then I began to weep greatly because no one was found worthy to open the book or to look into it; and one of the elders said to me, “Stop weeping; behold, the Lion that is from the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has overcome so as to open the book and its seven seals.”And I saw between the throne (with the four living creatures) and the elders a Lamb standing, as if slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God, sent out into all the earth. And He came and took the book out of the right hand of Him who sat on the throne. When He had taken the book, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each one holding a harp and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. And they sang a new song, saying, Worthy are You to take the book and to break its seals; for You were slain, and purchased for God with Your blood men from every tribe and tongue and people and nation.“You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to our God; and they will reign upon the earth.” Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne and the living creatures and the elders; and the number of them was myriads of myriads, and thousands of thousands, saying with a loud voice, "Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing.”And every created thing which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all things in them, I heard saying, “To Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, be blessing and honor and glory and dominion forever and ever.” And the four living creatures kept saying, “Amen.” And the elders fell down and worshiped." (Revelation Chapter 5, NASB, emphasis mine) Show me here (or in any other chapter) precisely what makes you think we can open any of the seals. Scripture records no one else opening any of the seals, PERIOD. No one else was found worthy to open any of the seals, PERIOD. After reading your previous posts here, I consulted Scripture , and what you have said contradicts it. A true prophet of the Lord will never contradict what the Lord has already spoken in the Bible. Sorry, but you're no prophet, and your words go directly against the Lord's.
