Good and evil are allowed into our world because of the choices individuals make....to do good or to do evil. As long as one person chooses evil, evil will be manifested in our world. Every person has the freedom to choose, but with the choosing comes the results of our choices. Good blesses and gives life; evil curses and brings death. Evil must be dealt with in truth and with mercy. One wh

Steve, Lucifer is probably the literal Latin translation of "Hay-lale!", "brightness" or "Morning Star" (Hebrew lexicon of Strong's Concordance) in the Vulgate. ...not necessarily an intentional Christian reference to a fallen angel. "Hay-lale!" and "Lucifer" both have the same meaning. There is sort of a parallel passage in Ezekiel 28:12-19 r

Hi Wireloop, Jesus the Christ is the logos. You apparantly do not believe that Jesus said what his disciples said that He did. You have that privilege and choice, but that doesn't mean that your belief is true. In reading the gospels, I see (and let's not obfuscate over what "see" is again...okay...you know what I mean) no reason not believe that His words were not truthfully r

Hi all, To be a forum for open and honest debate, Christianity sure takes its licking...but it keeps on ticking. Was Jesus illegitimate? ...was He an allegory? My opinion is that He is Who He says He is. As to your question: Mary was also of the line of David. To add to the answer: It would be the "seed of the woman" that would bruise the head of the serpent. Genesis 3:14.

Hi Degiem1, The original sin was simple disobedience to the command of the Creator. Genesis 2:16-17 "...the LORD God commanded the man...of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil thou shalt not eat: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die." The occasion of the disobedience was brought about by the deceiver. He first cast doubt upon the Word of God: Genesi

Hi Wireloop, I did some more homework, looking on the internet for an "8300" translation and didn't find one. However, the the "8600" was often attributed to a copyist error. It seems that the Hebrew 3 (sis) could easily be corrupted to 6 (ss). Also, if there was a floating copy of the LXX with "8300", you would probably pick it when translating because the ma

I Corinthians 2:10-12 "Now God has revealed them to us by the Spirit, for the Spirit searches everything, even the deep things of God. For who among men knows the concerns of a man except the spirit of the man that is in him? In the same way, no one knows the concerns of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have not received the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, in ord

Hi Wireloop, Why could it be that you are so much against there being a copy of the Septuagent that reads 8300 instead of 8600? ... ...because that challenge to the inerrancy of Scripture would be meaningless. Having not seen it, doesn't mean it doesn't exist. The copy on the internet would then contain a copying error.... Do you honestly believe that the translators of those Scriptures

Hi Wireloop, Commentary in the NIV says some manuscripts read 8300. The Holman Christian Standard Bible comments that LXX says 8300. Apparantly some copies of the LXX do read 8300. JIm

Hi Wireloop, A man has to love his work to find those discrepancies. Good questions to be sure. To your first link: I believe the Septuagent records 8300 Kohathites. You might check to see if it does. This would solve the math. (Josephus records 23,800 total Levites in that census - I think.) I cannot deny that there is a possible scribal error here. However, that does not make the Word o

Hi Wireloop, You've interested me in reading Philo. I John 1:1-3 gives testimony of intimate fellowship with Jesus. The similarities between the epistle and the gospel of John are enough evidence for me to accept that the apostle was the author of both. The timing of his writing was his concern for his own reasons. Some good scholars are in agreement with this as well. There are capabl

Hi again, I have read most of Josephus, but none of Philo. So that's where you get the theology you espoused earlier - an allegory presented by Philo. He sounds good, and I can see why you like him. Anyway, his interpretations and writings are one among many voices. Not to impugn Philo (whom I haven't read, and whom I think I'd enjoy reading), but another contemporary of his was John, a disc

Hi Wireloop, I understand what you are saying, but I disagree because I think it is incorrect. I am a geologist (4.0 in my last two years of study). I have made a journey through agnosticism, then New Age teachings, to a fundamental Christianity. I do not believe I am "blind" to what others believe, but I need more of a reason than somebody's words to believe. My theology is not base

Hi Akula, I find it hard to believe that God could not live without us, Him being the "Self-Existing One" (I think that is what 'Yah' means), but apparantly He doesn't want to. We are here for His purpose(s), and made in His image. Regards, Jim

Mentioning Chuck's site really was to make available the subject of his presentations which I felt were pertinant to a couple of threads. His site has good teaching, I think.

Bravo, Sunsword! The Bible further affirms that Mary was a virgin. Luke 1:30-35: "Then the angel told her: Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. Now listen: You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you will call His name Jesus.....Mary asked the angel, "How can this be, since I have not been intimate with a man?" The angel replied to her: The Holy

Hi all, FYI I mentioned a website - www.khouse.org - in a post a few days ago. This morning, I noticed that the host, whose background is in engineering/physics/international business, is beginning a study in Genesis. This study is in audio (25 minute programs), is free, and fascinating. Some of you might enjoy listening. Topics include Design, The Illusion of Time, and interpreting the Bib

Hi all, It seems almost everybody wants a definition of God. What definition will any accept? Surely mine. Perhaps He has revealed Himself, and we we are either ignorant of that revelation, or choose to not believe His revelation. The only way anyone can know God is by His revealing Himself. We must accept His revelation on His terms. If we can't put Him in a test tube, does that mean He

A Jewish rabbi, writing several hundred years ago, said that here were three dimensions of space, a fourth dimension of time, and a fifth dimension of spirit. Interesting thought. IF the "natural" world of our space-matter-time continuum is also part of a spiritual continuum, then we are spiritual beings as much as physical beings. Our bodies then would, somehow, be a natural manifes

Brian, My answer to your question may be politically incorrect, but I am persuaded that it is the true one. I'll try to give the short answer. (John 21-29) Jesus, in the Holy Bible, speaks much of the the salvation (saving) of the soul or its destruction. (Matthew 10:28; Matthew 16:21-26) God made all things good at the creation. All things were made by His Word - He "spoke" all

Being "anticlinal", the structure would not be a crater. The circular rings are probably the result of differential cooling as the mass cooled from the outside-inward, the center cooling last. The center should be a more well-developed crystaline mass than the outer "rings". Ahatmoses's definition that it is a magma dome would be my guess too. The size and well-defined c
