I must say that I am stunned and quite let down by this. It should be simple. I suppose this is why there are 38000 different denominations and sects within Christianity and growing all from the one bible. And no matter the evidence, you will fail, no utterly refuse to acknowledge the evidence.Do you follow what your pastor or church says, or do you actually study and research to show yourselves approved?
I have to admit I am a little baffled at the opposition as well.When she told you she disagreed she also said you failed to keep her interest talking about Hebrew. It is one thing if people basically are not interested in the history and proper knowledge concerning the Bible that they say holds a very special place in their hearts but what reason would there be to reject the truth or actually argue against it. The answer that because most people have been doing the wrong way and people are more familiar with the wrong way is a strange argument to me. part 1

end of any faken debates
and twisting senses of my posts,and Bible at all
I don't have you on my mind,
somene have your name under scruitny,and someone use human pen and ink to warn you,
that is all
I as pen and ink have nothing to do with you and your mind
attention about you will be expire when you find own phisical body and not existing soul 6 feet down in coffin
Just correct your own mistake,and spend more time on the road to spiritual maturity and
sucess
have nice evening
First of all I rebuke your curse back to teh pit of Sheol where it belongs. Second of all I don't care if anyone, there entire household, their dog, teh rat in their kitchen and the cockroach under their sink have me under scrutiny, still won't stop me from speaking the truth.

Way too bad you do not like it, but I won't make a huge deal of your behavior or else I would only be pretending I didn't know you were always this way. A slithering deceptive and hate filled character that can't stand to be wrong and disagree with any and everyone that even says slightly different from you.

Of course, you will neither admit nor accept this. You are the kind of guy who goes to open forums in the church hall or any other gathering, who is welcome to ask questions but you ask and answer at the same time and confuse the precedings. If you look like a duck and walk like a duck you can rest assured that I won't be calling you a pig. If you don't want to see what I have to say then don't read, but if you read and constantly have problems then I won't apologize to you. I won't be apologizing for the truth. If you have a doctrine to teach and you feel you're not being heard, then i'm sure you can establish another denomination somewhere for yourself.

So I hope you have a nice evening, and hope you also stop having problems with everyone else. I wouldn't be surprised if you didn't like yourself too much but hey, whatever puts the icing on your cake pal, it's not my concern.

Shalom!

Edit Andrew part 2. It is one thing if someone doesnt feel it is as important as others but why argue against something obviously correct? Pride? Some things I just am not going to keep pursuing if someone wants to infer the teachings of Jesus are now what the devil wants or if they want to take like the 5th used definition of fear and even still there are verses like in Matthew that specifically say "be afraid" and not "fear" so to me it is pretty clear. Im not going to water down things as what if we used the 5th definition for repent or forgive or obey or salvation or eternal life? But i know the outcome so im not gonna press. But with Yeshua when one sees how the name went from Jesu to Jesus and just the simple point u made as far as respect what is the argument against calling someone (who we happen to trust in for salvation) by the correct name? Again ppl not thinking its a big deal is one thing but the opposition makes no sense to me (T) PEACE

Meekness and Humility.

God's Cure for Pride, Haughtiness, and Egotism.

Why should people be meek and humble? What problems are caused by pride, arrogance, ego, self-exaltation, haughtiness, and self-will? Should you learn self-assertiveness, or should you learn not to be proud and haughty? What does the Bible teach about meekness, humility, gentleness, and lowliness in contrast to pride, selfishness, self-will, and arrogance?

Introduction:

Two of the greatest characters in the Bible possessed in common the qualities we want to study in this lesson.

Numbers 12:3 - Moses was very meek, above all men on face of the earth.

Matthew 11:29,30 - Jesus said, "I am meek and lowly in heart."

These men were two of the greatest characters who ever lived. Both were chosen by God to be givers of His law. Jesus was the Divine Son of God. Surely we should seek to be like these men.

Other verses emphasize the importance of these qualities

Matthew 5:5 - Blessed are the meek (gentle - NKJV), for they shall inherit the earth. Jesus declares a "blessing" (happiness) on those who are meek.

Galatians 5:22,23 - Meekness is one of the fruits of the Spirit - qualities that we must possess if we are led by the Spirit.

Proverbs 16:18,19 - Pride goes before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall. It is better to be of a humble spirit with the lowly.

If we seek to be happy, to be led by the Spirit, to avoid destruction, and to be like great people such as Moses and Jesus, we need to possess meekness and humility.

It is the purpose of this lesson to study these qualities, what they are, and how they will affect our lives. As we study, we will frequently note Moses and Jesus as examples who teach us about meekness and humility.

Today's Prayer
"These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world" (John 16:33). O dear Father, you know the tribulations I have faced and will face. Thank you for giving me hope in the face of these trials and temptations! Please bring this Scripture to my mind whenever I am feeling down due to whatever may come. I am so happy and thankful that you have overcome the world and given me hope and a future. Because of your power and love and sacrifice, I too can overcome the world! You give me joy and cheer and initiative to keep moving forward. You are my greatest inspiration and encouragement, and I love you. In Jesus' name I come to you, amen.
Prime time with God
Amen.

It's not grace that's new, but the subject to receive grace. Our anointed Savior came not to destroy the law, but to fulfill it. Therefore, the law (shedding of blood), it's purpose (remission of sins), and it's result (forgiveness, reconciliation, and grace),ior came and taught the spiritual applicatiol (and the Gentiles by extension) were releaifice and freed from the penalty of death. Now, all that was to be focused on was learning righteousness without such burdenext time...

I know we have talked about this a few times and I agree, I just was a little lazy in my posting. I probably should have said the shift in our understanding as I agrre with you and the book of Hebrews that the blood Of bulls and goats never forgave sins and it was always the grace of God that was needed and like it says in Isaiah that those who repent their wicked ways and return to him he will have mercy on. forgiveness has always come from God, I agree(T) PEACE

Indeed my friend, but it is rather hard to wipe out years upon years of deception in just 1 day. While some will hearken because they have longed to hear the truth, others will become quite disgruntled because you're disturbing their peace, their acceptable order of things.

Just saying.

LOL...I was thinking the same thing. I understand the point I think he is trying to make as far as maybe better to feel things even if bad then to feel nothing but I remember days in my past where I damn near would have sold my soul to have nothing over grief. I remember sitting on diff couches with my brother as we were both armed to the teeth and strung out and waiting for what we expected to be reprisals over some things and telling him i just want to wake up one day and be bored compared to the constant stress and problems. I used to think ppl lived boring lives and somehow living on the edge was better. But that got old very fast. I will take nothing over grief every day of the week but obviously not at the expense of my spirit or the ability to feel (T) PEACE

Indeed Steve, but here's the doozy. They think it is I who they're opposing. They're not opposing me my friend but they refuse to see it. Classic case of stone the messenger. Case in point; Stephen.

I must say I am quite astonished by you and your 180. I never knew you were this way unless you've always been this way but hid it from us. Please reexamine the post I am responding to and be mindful of the accusations you veil so subtly.

So please, don't create an issue where there should be none.

Shalom Seraphine. It is also my pleasure to meet you. Yes, only the dead do not learn (physically or spiritually dead). So we learn, so that humanity doesn't remain stuck. The truth comes, but there is more to understand of it, so we learn some more. If Adolf Hitler was into learning and not be so arrogant, then he wouldn't have pretty much made the same mistake Napoleon made and get caught in the brutal Russian winter. So too are we, if we refuse to learn, may meet the same fate. I have no problems with someone disagreeing with me, Christian or otherwise, but I would prefer the disagreement be with discussion and intelligence rather than insults and one-upsmanship.
I know very little and still have a whole lot to learn. Some people may know less or more than I do but prefer to remain as a plant stuck in a flower pot and that plant neither grows nor do their roots flourish. It is easy to tell the people based on their reaction(s) to what is being said/presented. There are some that will agree, some disagree with reason and other who prepare to burn you at the stake and then ask you questions after you've been done away with. Of all the advancements of man, the advancement of our spiritual witness and knowledge have been the slowest in all our history.
Shalom m'lady,
Andrew (CS).
Bonsoir mon ami, all of this is true, as stated before I do not know everything but I will share what I do know and together we can all learn from eachother. I am an art restorer I know about that my history has been shaped by numerous factors. Diagreements should be conducted with restraint and reason and a calm spirit I believe. It was my honor ro speak with you again Shalom mon ami!

All of this "you must use this name, in this language", or "you must pray this way", or "I have this knowledge that you don't", etc... does nothing but glorify ones self and brings no glory where it belongs......
So when will you stop doing it ?

Jesus spoke Aramaic and the original Gospel according to Matthew was written in Hebrew. Sadly none of the original documents of the New Testament survived. They are all Greek copies from over 200 years after Jesus, Paul and the Apostles were long dead. The English your Bible is written in didn't exist until 1400 years after Jesus died.

BTW, there is no text at all called "The Gospel of Jesus", He seems to have only written in the sand... and only according to the anonymous author of the "Gospel according to John", a proven blasphemer and fraud.

I agree 100% and especially when you talk of someone's "acceptable order of things". Most people imo reject change, are slow to change, and even fear change simply because they are used to something else. And truth be told in general Im probably one of the worst offenders as I have a hard time changing my ways and get very comfortable in my set ways.I dont know if it is pride or laziness or familiarity or all the above but I will often cling to what I am comfortable with. But Im aware I do this and don't try to justify it or argue against it. I know a lot of times I need to embrace change but do not. But at least knowing that gives me the possibilty of changing for the better.(T) PEACE

...And again...
...the term "fear" found in 2Timothy 1:7 is, actually, more accurately rendered, in English, "cowardice," from the Greek "deilias." This definition is likened to timidity. In essence, Paul was strengthening Timothy, that Timothy not be afraid to use the gifts he had received, nor to share the gospel with others. This particular "fear" has nothing, at all, to do with fear of consequence.
Thank you for your time and consideration, Grace Walker.
Until next time...
