another example of same text.....
........Q: In Mt 5:17 and Acts 10:10-16, since Jesus said he would not abolish anything in the law, why donít Christians follow the Old Testament dietary laws like Muslims allegedly do?
A: While neither Christians nor Muslims keep the Old Testament dietary laws, Christians do not because they listen to Jesus. Five points to consider in the answer.
At this time, Jesusí followers obeyed the Old Testament dietary laws. Jesus actually said that not one jot or tittle would pass away until all is accomplished.
The fact of Jesusí resurrection fundamentally changed the way God dealt with His children. An angel informed Peter, Jesusí apostle, that God had made all food clean in Acts 10:9-16. Note it does not say these animals were always clean, but rather that God had made them clean.
Even Muslims who bring up this objection, themselves have to agree that some the Old Testament dietary laws are not to be followed. Muslims feel they can eat camel meat (and Mohammed did so), yet Leviticus 11:3-8; Deuteronomy 14:6-8 prohibit eating them.
Listen to Jesus in Matthew 15:10,17-20 and Mark 7:14-15. Jesus said it is what comes out of a man that makes him unclean, not what goes in. Mark 7:19 shows that by this Jesus declared all foods clean. If we call Jesus a prophet, we should listen to His words.
A voice from heaven commanded Peter to eat in Acts 10:10-16, showing him that the dietary laws were only in effect until Jesusí sacrifice, not after. We should obey the voice of Godís angel and Jesusí apostle.
In conclusion, we should not ignore what Godís prophets said, but listen to them
Hey,Thank you for all those points,you were able to answer the question I asked SP,based on your knowledge of Sriptures.
He claims to know the Bible better than we, who try to lead our lives,according to it's teachings.
Let us see how he responds,based on HIS knowledge of Scriptures.
Let us see if he quotes Jesus as one of his sources to validate his response.After all,If Jesus says it,it has to be true,according to SP.
Although,he totally misinterpreted the meaning of the Scripture he quoted,so Jesus would have had to correct him.

<quoted text>Many other Christian denominations along with LDS must be blessed also because they believe, evidence by your bible quote. Why would God blessed them when they denounce your beliefs? Would that mean that Baptist who say Mormons will go to hell-fire will be rewarded in heaven for their beliefs as compared to an atheist?
I believe there are levels in heaven. We attain the level that we earned while on earth. Those that follow Jesus will be in His presence after death.

<quoted text>So you blame man for most disease? I get it now, you just blame man for bad and give god all credit for good even though you have no evidence of the credits.
You said god can change what happens on earth, but when I pointed out bad things happen in nature, you suddenly change your tune. And you wonder why my mind is closed to the claims?
You mention AIDS. How did it begin to afflict man? And how did it spread rapidly?

<quoted text>If "having ears to hear the gospel" means I must forgo my logic and reason, I guess I will never have the ears for it.
But you have yet to answer so many of my questions, I still think blame can be pointed at your lack of trying.
You don't have to forgo those, just your pride.

Ask them again by all means. One at a time. Lets do this again.

Either it evolved or God did it. Any insight as to which is true?

One can then just believe without joining any church according to your answer. Christians that commit horrendous crimes will then be with God too. That may cause some Christians to think crime is no big deal.

I disagree that faith and reason are mutually exclusive. I have faith, but I still try to figure out how it all works out together.
But I have never denied that I have faith rather than proof of anything. I have presented evidence of a miracle. The Bible, Book of Mormon, Koran, and Dead Sea Scrolls are all evidence that Jesus Christ existed and influenced millions.
But please, continue to try to discredit Joseph, Jesus, and Moses, or other prophets. I enjoy the conversation.
This is an aside, but proving that Jesus lived and was influential does not offer any support for the claim that he was divine or rose from the dead.

I'm sort of agnostic on the historicity of Jesus personally. I don't see much compelling reason to believe or disbelieve that such a person lived.

Its the magic parts that I find unbelievable.

I like the way you debate without resorting to tons of scripture to support your views. You are among the few Christians who debate well and defend your faith without coming unglued.

Do you train members of your church to prepare them for their two year ministry?

I'm not one that believes the Bible is inerrant. Men have taken books out of what should have been included in the canon. Men interpreted the scriptures to derive a trinitarian belief. Men interpreted the nature of God as well.
So I believe the Bible so far as it is translated correctly.
There are so many more scriptures that tell us that Jesus and the Father are not the same individual.
I'm still waiting for you to tell us---who decides what is translated correctly and what is not! As far as the trinitarian belief it started with Roman Emporer Constintine in about 300 AD and cannot be supported by the Bible.
Would you like to list the books that have been taken out of what should be included in the canon? And please don't tell me one of them is the book of Moses---I've already been there!

I took a screen shot of your death threat in case Topix erases it. i did report this criminal activity and I will be following up tomorrow with the proper authorities.
A hate crime across the states is a federal crime.
Death threats like this are serious crimes, hope that you get along good with big Bubba

Hate Crime is indeed taken very seriously... So what crime has Anton levey done ? has he murdered you, raped you, physically assaulted you, robbed you? I think you are grasping at straws at best, but if you are willing to invest the time, effort, and $$$ into this , knock yourself out. With that being said, do you actually think the proper authorities will consider this a valid and legit threat that could be acted upon/ in other words, does this person KNOW YOU and know where you live? Do you REALLY FEEL your life is in danger? lol

Oh no. You apparently have not been reading. One must do more than just believe. Faith without works is dead.
