  1. Yeah that's what I figured. Gods people got a new covenant to abide by.
  2. I think you could find salvation, learn what God expects of us in the here and now and win the prize solely with the books of Matthew, mark, Luke and John. BUT why would you want to? Given we are so blessed to have so much resource and tools, especially online to fo such advanced scriptural studies I think its be a real waste to skip over the O T. I think spiritual babies should PRIMARILY be reading through the new testament though for sure.
  3. I wouldn't say it's best to interpret the bible as literally as possible. I always try and figure out whether the scripture I'm reading is intended to be taken literally or figuratively and view it through the lenses I believe God intended. I would even consider the possibility that different portions should be viewed literally at different times in history to.
  4. My current thinking is that the Jews up until christ will go to heaven then the ones alive after Christ should follow his teachings to go to heaven.
  5. This is a new one on me so forgive the misunderstanding. So the focus of this replacement theory is about the Jews and kinda what happens to them after christ came? This sounds like a very big study lol.
  6. I've never heard of replacement theology but I just googled it and it seems more or less right to me. The new covenant replacing the old one. Isn't that what all Christian's believe?
  7. Have you seen that laughing therapy? Talk about laughter as medicine. Kinda freaks me out a bit when I saw it on YouTube though lol
  8. Yeah true that. It's a humour where everyone laughs.
  9. I have already learnt about the jewish festivals and how they relate to those events. I meant as an ongoing thing in more modern times. Like you have been with the 7 years and 50 year cycles we were talking about. I'm not sure we both see divination in the same light. I dont see anything supernatural about trying to predict events based on patterns. So your convictions will only allow you to recognise potential calendar correlations in the past? I love this forum. It amazes me how many different viewpoints and peoples varying perspectives on every aspect of our faith. Yeah the whole universe is expanding and cooling down so they say.
  10. Hey Tzephanyahu. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I think you're right.
  11. I dont think God has that kind of sense of humor. Have you personally experienced success with that method?
  12. Then there's no point telling the joke if he's guaranteed to laugh. That defeats the point lol.
  13. I've come to the conclusion that God has a sense of humor and I think if I were good at telling jokes he would laugh along with me.
  14. You're presuming I'm good at telling jokes.
  15. A brief Google seems to indicate there seems to be a lot of times when laughter is encouraged and then there's that scripture that sais we shouldn't engage in coarse humor somewhere which would seem to encourage non coarse humor. I like to think there are moments of irony and circumstance that are God manifesting his humor sometimes. And yeah animals do appear humorous sometimes. Especially things like sloths that look like they are always smiling.
