You've hit the nail on the head, and I've been trying, relentlessly, to expose this most troubling issue for years now!
The deceit and lies that plague Christendom began while the apostles and disciples were alive and well, in the first century! John, as recorded at 1John 5, was already attacking the heresy that our anointed Savior wasn't the son of the most High. And that's why it mentions Father, the Word, the Spirit, blood, and water, at 1John 5:7-8. John was explaining that if man's testimony isn't proof enough, then his baptism (1John 5:7) and his crucifixion (1John 5:8) should be, being two events that prove, beyond the shadow of any doubt, that he is, indeed, the son of "God!" And this wasn't the only heresy, lie, and false teaching. Just from a most erroneous and severe misunderstanding of 1John 5:7, we have the infamous doctrine of the so-called "trinity," to further prove my point.
Indeed; you're on the mark with this. the only problem is 1 John 5 is oen of the scriptures that is often called into question by scholars and based on dating, they believe it is highly dubious that it was written by John. I will have to research that more but it does seem to give one a starter-kit in trinitarianism. Not just that, but teh writing style differs from the Gospel of John. I didn't make this up. Anyone can research it for themselves and see if it makes sense or not.

Bonsoir mon ami, I agree with this as well, however I would like to point out that yes there are pharisees but do we as children of God observe their conduct and follow their example? Or do we follow the example of Yeshua/Iesus/Jesus? Sora and I have traveled to Yisrael/Israel many times and it is one of the most beautiful places we have seen. In regards to the hostility my advice would be to negate its influences in your life. Anger and hatred are poison to the human soul. Shalom!
I try my best to follow the example of Yashua Ha-Mashiach (barack be He) but it is a rocky, very narrow, very winding road so it isn't easy, but He told us that His path wouldn't be easy.

Also, it is not easy to negate the negative influences in my life but I would love to. We are surrounded by negative people and negative circumstances all the time, even in this thread. People will be people and each person must play their part. Many can't help being who they are unfortunately.

Or Like giving up their ego, pride and know it all attitude and become humble, gentle in Spirit and admit that they will never be able to do anything to earn their salvation and place ALL their trust in The Saviour of the world??? That is WHY He is called the Saviour..right? IF we could EVER be capable of earning our salvation, then Christ never would have humbled Himself and die for all mankind but somehow this doesnt seem to be enough for some people. they feel that they STILL have to finsih what Jesus Himself has finished and then there are some people who struggle with admitting that and THAT is NOT trusting nor Obeying God. They want to obey everything but this..The obedience of faith. Following the Saviour is Believing WHAT HE FINISHED on the Cross and trusting Him..not themselves and their abilities.

"There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.
Ms. Walker, you are correct, once you are forgiven you are free from teh Law of sin and death until you break the Commandments again and again must ask for forgiveness. Unless you're saying that once you're in "Christ" that you cannot sin. As we all know by now, the "SIN" is the Transgression of the "LAW". people sin daily, christian or otherwise.

The scripture that you quoted explained the Law of the Spirit of Life but does it say the Commandments are voided? Remember James 2:14-26 explains that faith without works is dead. Works are deeds as it Thou Shalt and Thou Shalt Not as seen in the Commandments.

Matthew 5:17-19 (KJV)

17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
********

Fulfill is clearly not destroyed. The Law is Fulfilled (fully accomplished) when salvation is complete. That is, when His people are in His Kingdom. heaven and Earth still exists so His Law hasn't passed away.

In Revelation 22:14-15 (KJV) the Last chapter in the Bible, it says specifically:

14 Blessed are they that do his Commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
********

Verse 14 is key but take not of what verse 15 says. How does it prophet anyone to say that the Commandments are done away with unless they are rebellious?

Not because we have Grace mean we also have Lawlessness, for we are all sinners who have fallen short of His glory. Imagine your city without Laws and the school your children attend without rules? What utter chaos that would be.

Andrew, Its not that I have a problem with Hebrew names. Its the way you accuse others of worshipping false gods if we dont call GOD/ Jesus by their hebrew names. I feel that is nonsense because God knows and see's the heart of people. It seems that something like that could be a stumbling block for others. Bibical Scholors has translated the Hebrew and Greek Words into English so we all can understand Gods Word and I personally feel that we believers should spread the love of God to unbelievers...Tell them about Jesus Christ..If you feel uncomfortable about calling JESUS by the english name them why not simply call Him Our Lord..Our Saviour...Christ...Son of God???????? I believe it was Dr. Shrink that said it best..God is NOT the author of confusion so WHY add confusion?? Jesus is the Good News of Salvation..Why cant we do what God said to do..Spread The Gospel..Not our version of it?? This applies to me also..I admit that I am just as guilty. I can admit to being wrong when I see myself causing confusion. Not everyone is going to understand The Gospel of Grace..God said He would have mercy on whom He wants to have Mercy..Not everyone will understand..We all have different paths to take and different walks to walk but what we all have is BELIEF in The Son of God..We should share that.

I can assure you Andrew there is nothing wrong with me and I'm not joking at all. What I said and posted I meant. Sadly you can't see in yourself what several others are seeing.
And trust me Andrew. It indeed isn't funny at all. And the one without a clear mind sure isn't me, it's you.
I'm not the one preaching to anyone that will listen telling them I have the truth and they don't, and that everyone should be listening to me, accept it, and acknowledging me for it. And I'm not the one who so self righteously pumps up his own ego by saying things like quote: "I seek the Kingdom of the Most High rather than sit on my rump waiting for it to be taught to me in church."
Here's a newsflash Andrew. You're not the only one seeking the Kingdom of God (which by the way myself and countless others have already attained through Jesus Christ).
Why not try climbing down from your self made pulpit that you're preaching your "I have the truth while everyone else is just sitting on their rump being taught lies because their church doesn't have the truth that I do" ego driven message from and try a little humility Andrew!!!

<quoted text>We've been over this before, Doctor REALITY. Do you think my answer will be different?
__________
Matthew 27:28
Then were there two thieves crucified with him, one on the right hand, and another on the left.
Luke 23:39-43
And one of the [thieves] which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us.
But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?
And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss.
And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.
And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.
What do you know about this thief that the scriptures don't reveal? Do you know the type of life this thief lived before he got arrested? Do you know his heart? First, it's written...
Proverbs 6:30
Men do not despise a thief, if he steal to satisfy his soul when he is hungry.
Do you know why this thief stole? Do you know of his other sins, or if he had other sins?
Considering his rebuke toward the other thief, we can, at least, assume that he had some belief toward "God," even if only a little. Again, he asked and said, "Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss." And just after this, he pleaded, "Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom."
Now, from what I know, it's written...
Matthew 10:32-33
Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.
But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
Based on the thief's comments and plea alone, it would seem that even without our knowing how this thief lived, or what was in his heart, that our anointed Savior deemed him worthy enough to be allowed entrance into the kingdom of Glory. However, there's nothing that says that his comment and plea was enough. We know nothing else of this thief other than what's been provided us.
We've no other history of this thief other than this one incident. Nothing you say, or even opt to believe, proves that his rebuke and plea were enough to be saved.

Good Afternoon CS... Adonai and Adonis are simply 'cognates' borrowed from a root word from a certain language... and other languages adopted it but gave a different form of the word or "a name" in their own language... just like spanish, french and italian share some "very similar" words based on latin roots.

Baal means master or lord... "Mr." really means "Master" although we pronounce it "mister"... Now if someone calls you Mr.(your last name)... does that mean that you are Ba'al also? No of course not. So when I say Jesus is Lord I'm not saying Ba'al is Lord.

Some people call you Andrew but shouldn't they be calling you by the original form of Andrew instead of it's english cognate? No of course not... it isn't necessary.

Romans 2:17-24 [17] Now you, if you call yourself a Jew; if you rely on the law and brag about your relationship to God; [18] if you know his will and approve of what is superior because you are instructed by the law; [19] if you are convinced that you are a guide for the blind, a light for those who are in the dark,[20] an instructor of the foolish, a teacher of infants, because you have in the law the embodiment of knowledge and truth--[21] you, then, who teach others, do you not teach yourself? You who preach against stealing, do you steal?[22] You who say that people should not commit adultery, do you commit adultery? You who abhor idols, do you rob temples?[23] You who brag about the law, do you dishonor God by breaking the law?[24] As it is written: "God's name is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you."

Revelation 21:6-8 [6] He said to me: "It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To him who is thirsty I will give to drink "without cost" from the spring of the water of life..

What I don't understand is, why the defense of questionable words relating to many deities? To what does it prophet you?
Would it damage you somehow to say Halleluyah? or Selah >[Which more than likely means "forever" or "Pause and Think of that" or from a root word that means "Hang these words and weigh them"] Selah is often use as a pause or break within a song.
What is the basis of your justifications?
Andrew (CS).
Yes, yes... I already know all of this. For myself, I like going back to the original word (hebrew/greek or other) for the purpose of finding out the meaning of the word so I can get a clearer understanding behind a certain scripture. When I do that it's kind of like turning on the high beams on a lonely stretch of highway in which one can see further. I say few words like Amen (truth), Hallelujah, Praise the Lord, Praise God, Praise Jesus... sometimes Selah because it is part of a holy conversation.

I may say shalom every once in a while... now speaking for myself of course, while it may give some a thrill to throw out hebrew/greek words here and there... for some reason, it doesn't thrill me as much because I rather seek out the meaning of such words. Like it says in I cor 14, I rather speak 10? words in a known language than 10,000 words in an unknown language. While it doesn't necessarily bother me if someone wants to call Jesus "Yeshua" and the like... I can dig it. Sometimes, depending on who I am speaking to, I myself will call Jesus "Yeshua". But for me, if I were to use hebrew all the time (not being able to speak it fluently)... I would feel like some sort of Hebrew Gypsy or something and would simply be showing off if I did that.
