You can believe it all you want, but there is plenty of evidence to the contrary you must ignore in order to believe that.

Sounds pretty desperate to me.

Bubba the atheist learned from Cletus the Satanist who learned from Bobby Joe the Agnostic who had someone's "banned from church for being a scumbag" friend tell him that the bible was a forgery.......man that's some good proof!!!!!!<<<< <<-----I was being sarcastic again....sigh.
You're not very good at it.

But apparently you're a southerner? That would explain a lot.

I've already been saved and sealed but I'm trying to keep you all from the Lake of Fire. Turn from Satan's ways unto the Lord's ways. Call out to Him......ask Jesus to help show you the way..........open up the Holy Bible and start reading it.........pray to God for answers.........."For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved"........
You're wasting your time and being lazy. If you want to do something God will appreciate, go feed people.(But that would mean stepping away from your comfy computer and actually doing something.)

What am I lying about? I don't want anyone to follow me. You need to follow Jesus Christ, cry out to Him, ask Him for guidance, repent to Him for your sins, ask Him into your life, let Him be your personal Lord and Savior.
What makes you think you can change God's plan, Mr. Arrogant?

What makes you think you can "inspire" one person to call on God even one day before God has planned to call that person?

Whatever God's plan is, that is his plan. You can't accelerate it. You just make a fool of yourself.

Plus you turn off 99% of the people you might reach by your bizarrely unChristlike approach. I wouldn't want you to represent my small business, let alone Jesus Christ. You're not qualified for either.

What an unseemly peculiarity.
Do you know of any other verses that speak of Satan being a god?
I found an older version that said "in whom the god of THIS AGE" instead of "this world". I think it was Darby's.
Oh....here's another one, from the Knox Bible: "those whose unbelieving minds have been blinded by the god this world worships,.."
So we've got:
The god of this world.
The god of this age.
The god this world worships.
Oh yeah. It IS obvious, isn't it!
Hey,........ we're agreeing!
After two thousand years of figurin they'r figured the 'god of this world' means stuff like envy, false pride, lust, the love of money and things like that. When it comes to folks like Romans and Preacherman who don't know squat and don't want to know squat it includes things like education, science and intelligence. I bet it wouldn't take much to get preacherman to call long division a 'man made lie'.

The King James Bible mistranslates the passage. The Greek word is 'aeon' which is a very long period of time. Saint Jeromes Vulgate; 'saeculi', which we find in the expression 'saecula saceculorum': forever and ever.

Romans will ignore this error since there is no way to weasel out of it without making a bigger fool of himself than he already has. I bet you don't even think this is possible.

Job 1:6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them.

Isaiah 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning!
Revelation 22:16 I Jesus am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.

In this case "aeon" comes from two non-canonical Jewish texts of the 2nd Temple period called "1 Enoch" and "2 Enoch" which heavily influenced early christians of the Sauline sects.

It's presence and the usage in the text of 2 Corinthians strongly indicates the influence of these texts or, more properly, gnostic writings based upon them upon Saul's thinking. "Aeon" also spelled "Aion" refers to one of the emanations from the divinity.

This is one of the more obscure proofs that Saul was a heretic.

Jesus came to redeem the entire world. Yes he was the Jewish messiah, but as the messiah he was no longer reserved just for the people of Isreal.
That is why the vast majority of Jews converted to Christianity within the first three centuries, explaining its rapid growth. The remnants of those holdouts who refused to except their own Messiah is what is known as rabbinical juadism today.
Obviously they dont accept that Jesus was the Messiah, but even secular scholars acknowledge that most Jews came to accept Christ as the Living God.
The fullfillment of those messianic prophesies are called the "preconfigurations".
This is why Paul (a jew and a highly educated pharaisee who formaly persucuted Christians as Jewish heritics) wrote letters to both the Jews and the Gentiles.
You have no idea what you are talking about. Jesus was NOT the Jewish messiah. The "vast majority of Jews" did NOT convert.

Please expound. Evidence of Paul's Gnosticism is not hard to find but I don't understand the connection to 1 and 2 Enoch.

That's what I was thinking, but didn't feel like looking it up. Wasn't the whole conversion thing not going so well (especially with feeding Christians to the lions being the equivalent of modern day football) until Constantine?(Which then forever corrupted Christianity by combining it with Mithraism/paganism?)
