2 Timothy 2:16 ESV /
But avoid irreverent babble, for it will lead people into more and more ungodliness
"faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God" (Rom. 10:17).
Jer 6:10 (NIV) "To whom can I speak and give warning? Who will listen to me? Their ears are closed so they cannot hear. The word of the Lord is offensive to them; they find no pleasure in it."
Mat 13:12-17 (NIV) "Whoever has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him. This is why I speak to them in parables:[from Isa 6:9-11]'Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand.' In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah:'You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving. For this people's heart has become callused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them.' But blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear. For I tell you the truth, many prophets and righteous men longed to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it."
Here's a good one that should make any thinking mind go hm..huh....o0
1 Sam 15:22 (NIV)..."Does the Lord delight in burnt offerings ...as much as in obeying the voice of the Lord? To obey is better than sacrifice..." (Mat 21:28-31)
Psalm 14:1 ESV /
To the choirmaster. Of David. The fool says in his heart,“There is no God.” They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds, there is none who does good.
1 Corinthians 5:12 ESV / 5 helpful votes
For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Is it not those inside the church whom you are to judge?
Psalm 91:1 ESV /
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
Isn't there a verse somewhere in the good book, that clearly infers that people, no matter the denomination, do best NOT to preach at those who do NOT wish to hear it? Bueller, Bueller anyone?
Such common sense within it's pages sometimes, for those who chose to read and hear it!!
None of this is any different than what the Koran says - yet you would find it flawed from that source.
The Bible is self fulfilling, self praising and self supporting. The characters within it profess that their own and each other's statements are unadulterated 'truths'. That cohesion is not the Holy Spirit, it's called "editing."
Yes, there is a verse that says not to preach to those who don't want to hear it. Matt. 7:6. Of course, it's easy for the devout to ignore that. It was just ...what's his name again? Oh, right JESUS, who said it.
Do you actually think that people who do not accept, absorb and regurgitate the fanciful machinations and convolutions invented by the clergy (the real swine) are the ones who:
'Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand.'?

Repentance is more than simply acknowledging wrongdoings. It is a change of mind and heart. It includes turning away from sin
Yes, that makes sense. That said, how can someone who turns away from sin, yet does not have the an accurate knowledge of the truth still be saved from destruction or eternal torture and suffering by God?

I can follow all the rules on how to swim yet I can still be drowned because the rules I read is not accurate enough to prevent it.

How can one have accurate knowledge of the truth when other beliefs claim it is false here on topix forum?

And I've already stated a long time ago, I found what bits and pieces I've read of the Koran to be rather barbaric and dark age sounding.

Said the same thing about the OT in the Bible.

Of "mired under dark age muck" MENTALity.

Good ONLY in application of and for understanding and glimpsing some history in world Civ.

Certainly NOT anything anyone should even begin to base any kind of life of enlightenment on, in my opinion anyway! But then flippin' dark age, ignorance does NOT appeal to me.

I couldn't imagine worshiping an omnipotent being that allowed children to suffer and die in pain. If your god is omnipotent, it is a piece a crap not worth of my attention. Besides, if Heaven is full of people like you, I'd prefer Hell!
I wouldn't worship anything like that either, but in my opinion, people do that kind of thing themselves.

You obviously have no idea who or what my God is, because "it" sure isn't ANYTHING like what you're ranting about.

Thank God...I don't believe in all that using guilt for manipulation type crap.

Intellect is sometimes an elusive quality. You can find competent CPAs who don't know a lug wrench from a paint scraper.
It hardly matters if someone can read the Bible in 4 languages if they are simultaneously noshing metaphysical mumbo-jumbo - or frosted FLAKE dogchit on a stick.

I was inferring that there is no difference whatsoever between:
"The Bible says it, I believe it and that settles it."
and
"The Koran says it, I believe it and that settles it."

Both books claim the "truth" and proclaim that salvation ultimately comes through absolute, unwavering and unquestionable faith of their "truths." Barbaric.

Redundant and nochit.

Nice to see you've actually learned something though.

Yep...archaic, dark age, mired in muck, self serving MENTALity usually is.

Try reading it again, slowly, one word at a time.
Then see if you "get the simple statement".
Nope, still don't see what you're seeing

That's not what I read from MY good book. I find that kind of thing socio-ILLogically dark age, draconian, warped and mired in the MUCK of their OWN unrighteousness, who just grasp at whatever they can to try and twist others to manipulate them to their own warped misperceptions.
But I do agree, Con artists and manipulators that thrive on just trying to start trouble to suit their narccisstic, greedy selves (including the female kind) suck. They oughta be whipped with their own conivings of greed, hatefullness and deceit daily.
Than you do not read the bible of the christians.

So what god do you worship?
The bible is clear about the god of the jews so what new and improved god do you worship? Since you have created a new god to be what you want then you should know that your god is not real to any one except you

With the new testament they created a new and improved god that loves them.
They reject the old testament god unless it justifies their hate and blood lust but the new and improved god they created just loves them all

Makes sense. Their new god went to anger management counseling.

Ha, Christians love to use the "With the Lord a day is like a thousand years" when trying to explain the six creation days. The Old Testament was written thousands of years ago and had crazy laws like marrying your rapist, raping virgins, selling your daughter as a sex slave and all kinds of crazy crap.
To us that was thousands of years ago that God thought that way but to God, that crap was running through his head last weekend.
When you leave the TRUTH and start to rely on your opinion and reflect a form of insanity or was that before you left the TRUTH?

The Hebrew people were ordered by "God" to do these type of crimes. Majority of Christians today still hold the nation of Israel as the sacred chosen people of God today. Yet today the Jews do not obey the commandments of the O.T. of thousands of years ago. It becomes clearer that it is made up by clever writers of that time to serve the thrones of kings. I think the GOP today using CPAC "christian party acting crazy" using religion for the same purpose.
