Yaa says "40 years later, in jail for domestic violence, booked on 04/04/04,@ 0.04 seconds after midnight, I spent the best "40" days of my life, getting to KNOW our Savior in person!"

"At 0.04 seconds?"
LOL! A NEW detail.
This tale grows and grows.

How many other ways do you think you can work
the "magic 4" into your story?
Maybe you saw the "4 Horsemen" while you were riding in the police car?
Perhaps you were the 4th case on the docket?
The courtroom and your cell BOTH HAD 4 WALLS! Yes! That's it!

The most perfect maxims and examples for regulating your social conduct and domestic economy, as well as the best rules of morality and religion, are to be found in the Bible.... The moral principles and precepts found in the scriptures ought to form the basis of all our civil constitutions and laws. These principles and precepts have truth, immutable truth, for their foundation.... All the evils which men suffer from vice, crime, ambition, injustice, oppression, slavery and war, proceed from their despising or neglecting the precepts contained in the Bible.... For instruction then in social, religious and civil duties resort to the scriptures for the best precepts.
AMEN!
I want to start a movement "Truth in Government"!
IF you work for the government, and caught lying with the intention of deception... Gone, history, No retirement,

What facts do you have to refute creation?
They have never found a missing link(s), each creature is different bone structure birds, the way our organs work, and etc... There are some similarities in certain creatures, but by far way too many gaps to support evolution...
Each creature was designed and created uniquely by God the Devine creator.
The Biblical timeline is one of the major issues. Earth’s age is much older than literal interpretation of the Bible suggests, even if one does not insist that god literally created it in seven days. No human bones have been discovered during the age of the dinosaurs. Well, you get the idea (or maybe not).

At any rate, I have no interest in trying to convince you that your belief that each creature was designed and created uniquely by God is incorrect. Nor do I believe it likely that I could. All I can do is challenge that concept based on Biblical history to offer an occasion for you to reconsider.

Perhaps you might return the favor by helping me understand the authority of Biblical history. Specifically, how do you believe the authors of the books of he bible obtained their history of creation? Did god tell them directly, just as some believe god directly passed a tablet inscribed with the ten commandments to Moses?

I know it's hard for you with your limited knowledge base but Chickens are made by Humans.... We Selected wild fowl and selectively bred them to produce a domesticated animal different in shape, habits from any wild game that came before... Before man domesticated them there were no Chickens.... But there were animals laying eggs for the last 300 to 500 Million years at a minimum...
What you and other do is start with a Belief (God Did It) and anything that supports your preconceived notion is ok, anything that shows those preconceived notions as Balderdash are ignored...
So which came first, The Egg... The egg was a method a organism developed 100's of millions of years ago to deal with environmental conditions and one of those organisms, after 100's of millions of years, became a bird... Then after several 1000 years of Human Breeding some of those birds became Chickens as man acted as a natural selector....
Can you grow a plant without it giving you the seed???
Same with Every other egg laying thing!
You couldn't even have a Human without a Human giving birth!
Pond scum does not give birth... it just is... Pond scum!

Are you inferring that because there were real meeting places among the early catholic communities, the events compiled about Jesus (and probably an overwhelming majority of the OT) are indelibly accurate - just as surely as young George chopped down the cherry tree and threw a silver dollar across the Potomac?
Your point that the world does and has been comprised of countless myriads of both diverse and related cultures and subcultures is duly noted - and is far more likely to be discounted by the average congregation member than by those you choose to debate and deride here.
Thank you for reiterating the exact point lol.

I didn't say Spider-Man disproves the Bible. I said the fact that the Bible has real places names does not prove it's stories are true.
You hear people make the claim all the time. Oh, they dug up some city in the desert that is mentioned in Julio 2:15.
Who cares? Did they dig up a god too? Because that would be impressive.

JERUSALEM, Israel -- Every year Israeli archaeologists dig up more artifacts which shed new light on Bible times. A museum that houses many of those ancient objects has been re-opened to the public.

The Israel Museum in Jerusalem first opened its doors in 1965. Now after three years of renovations, the museum is re-opening its unique treasure of archaeological artifacts, Judaica and fine art to the public.

"We're kind of a crossroads in the world," said James Snyder, the museum's director. "And certainly in ancient times this was so. But even after the western world entered the picture, somehow Jerusalem sits at the center of the universe. So ideally you could create an encyclopedic museum."

Snyder said the museum is the largest, most active museum in Israel's region of the world.

"What we have here in the end indeed is a really rich and strong universal collection of 500,000 objects beginning a million and half years ago and coming to contemporary art today," Snyder added.

Thousands of artifacts on display in the museum help to bring biblical times to life.

"The archaeology wing has a story to tell that you can't get anywhere else in the world," said Michal Dayagi-Mendels, chief curator of archaeology.

The wing focuses on story of the land of Israel through a narrative about man in the country - how he lived, whom he worshipped, and even how he was buried.

"We are trying to emphasize the story of the Bible - the birth of monotheism, the first and second temple periods and the emergence of the three monotheistic religions that you can see in one gallery," Dayagi-Mendels added.

An inscription from the 9th century B.C. is the earliest of archaeological evidence of the dynasty of King David.

Two shrines from the about the 7th to 8th century B.C. were discovered about 30 miles apart. They show the struggle that existed between belief in the one God of the Bible and pagan idol worship at the time.

"We learned a lot about the living from the burials," Dayagi-Mendels continued.

Archaeologists found two silver amulets inside one burial chamber. They both bear verses from the Book of Numbers -- the earliest biblical verses ever found, dating to about 600 B.C. predating the Dead Sea scrolls by 400 years.

Also on display for the first time is a huge crusader period fresco discovered near Gethsemane.

"It's very exciting to have archaeology and make it so clear, so fascinating that for all those thought in the past see something we cannot come close to they will be absorbed into it," Dayagi-Mendels said.

How stupid can you be wrote:

Are there people of other faiths that have been saved?
I have no doubt!
Did Paul shut up in Acts? NO!
So please provide the verse, or verses that says I should shut up, and then we both can get off topix!
I personally think there are people of ALL faiths worthy of "salvation"..INCLUDI NG Catholics.

and no one told any one to shut up, I merely stated the same statement as above, just with different words, to YaA, for acting like Catholics can't hear or something.

Dolt.

REv 7:6
And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel. 5O of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand. 6Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nephthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand.

Are YOU stuck on topix? Do you need help on how to step away from it's dribble? It's not really that difficult....

Ummmm me thinks you are perhaps a bit too cynical-that not ALL the world sits in plot and plan deception, and low-life-CON mode(s), that SOME of us find that very type of thing to be of the utmost nature of VILEness and CONtemptability, equatable to those having no ethics OR true decency per say?

Or is that just your own junk pointing back at ya? lol
