  1. Prophesying is simply telling forth God's mind on a matter. Every time you say something is wrong or right and say here's what the Bible, God's Word says, you're prophesying. In my opinion the scriptures don't restrict being a "Jew" on the inside is something restricted to some people who think of themselves as being anointed or not, but allowing one's self to be "circumcised" and "led" by God's word and spirit. Of course these latter are individual claims the judge of which is Jesus as he has been appointed as judge to determine the truth of the matter. It's up to each individual to "work out his own faith with fear and trembling". Being a busybody in the business of others is the business of the presumptuous. If you think someone is wrong about something, don't listen to them. If you think a group is off track and some other group has it better, then go join up w/them. Don't think you can go it alone w/o becoming a caricature of your own individual defects, however because that's what becomes of the isolationist. It's good for you to stick around w/people w/whom you are not in complete agreement. How do you suppose Iron can sharpen Iron w/o friction?
  2. I swear, you simply have to be either asbergers or autistic because analogies appear to be impossible for you to understand.
  3. I accidently happened on these girls and now I keep watching.
  4. Years ago I read Alfred Edersheim's "The Life and Times of Jesus the Messiah". There was a lot of these sorts of things there. I'd classify much of this as biblical spicilegium.
      Hello guest!
  5. This other thing I've been reading suggested a need to research claims made because of the tension then and continuing tension now between Jews and Christians (Christians feeling the bus came and the Jews didn't get on it)

  6. More along the same lines.

    So much for vaccine-generated herd immunity In an Israeli hospital outbreak, 96% vaccination rates (and universal masking) made no difference. And guess who had mild cases? Hint: not the vaccinated.
  7. BTW the apologetic I'm reading has a lot of stuff that's wrong. You can't pick up one of these w/o having someone pump the Jesus is God thing or Hell or the like. I just have to ignore that stuff. I had to do that when I started studying years ago w/the Live Forever book. The pics on pentecost looked silly to me w/the looks on their faces but I told myself "Don't get distracted by the artwork. Focus on the contents." It's hard to do sometimes, but I think it's useful to know what people's arguments are just so long as I understand their intend is to gather and not to scatter. That's the biggest problem I have w/apostates. It's not like they are saying "I found something awesome over here." It's just a bunch of negativism. Even if anything said by a detractor is true, it's spiritual rot to dwell on it. If you turn the same apostate lens on the Bible you burn it all to the ground. And for what? Because people are imperfect? G. K. Chesterton was a Catholic, but I agree w/him (and the sentiments apply to atheists as well as apostates) “We do not admire, we hardly excuse, the fanatic who wrecks this world for love of the other. But what are we to say of the fanatic who wrecks this world out of hatred of the other? He sacrifices the very existence of humanity to the non-existence of God. He offers his victims not to the altar, but merely to assert the idleness of the altar and the emptiness of the throne. He is ready to ruin even that primary ethic by which all things live, for his strange and eternal vengeance upon some one who never lived at all.”― G.K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy
  8. An apologetic isn't associated w/only Christians, and the link cited isn't an apologetic either.
      Hello guest!
    What passage in the link are you having problems with? Nothing struck me as particularly controversial. There certainly weren't any doctrines discussed, simply a biblical trivia investigation. BTW This link is not the apologetic I'm reading. This is:
      Hello guest!
    I read a lot of things. Some of the things I read I agree with in part, sometimes a lot, sometimes very little, and at other times none at all.
  9. I'm still not getting how you're getting this as a conclusion: "So I would not call this an apologetic piece for Christians, I would rather call it a piece written against Christians, to disprove the truth of the new testament. "
  10. I'm not sure I'm following your logic here. All I get was that instead of some weird psychic stuff, Jesus knew that there would probably be a room available w/these guys and he could spot the guy because of the water jar thingy. If it was weird for men to carry water, that would make the guy stand out.
