That was like a breath of fresh air.
Thanks.
Forgive me Black Thunder,
I did make a mistake re the 'nation' but!
I do not come from a western European understanding of Life, and therefore am perfectly in tune with such things 'passed on'!

History will always be what has been made of it, but truth will also always survive, Ja? So many suffer re such facts being ignored, but then again, would you believe that even a Christian can be called all these same things... if, they are 'different'???

My people have a way of seeing things in a pure Light, and actually sum it up by saying, "Some people just know".

Nothing changes Truth. Nothing!

Bonsoir mon ami. The original portrait of this child was found in Budapest,Hungary after World War 2, this is a reproduction in painting as the original was faded with age. Judging from the clothing of this girl I believe her family were settled in the city perhaps middle to upper-middle class. More than likely she was a victim of the Porajmos. Many Roma were killed there are no set numbers as they are historically a nomadic and mostly illiterate people. Save for those whom were settled I imagine that this girl had to "Pass" as a Hungarian. Her expression is one of apprehension, very much so and confusion. Or perhaps she was a victim of Josef Mengela, he enjoyed experimenting on Roma children. Interestingly enough, they were deemed Aryan by the

Nazis but tainted through their association with Non-Aryans.
What is the little girl holding in her hands, cannot make it out.

She sure has the look of ' insecurity, no self esteem, feelng alone and lonely.

Jesus wasnt "might be real" he is an historic fact. The Bible says he is God, and foretold his coming. Only God knows the future and has revealed this to his people.

Satan is fighting over borders.

There's no such thing as 'caveman'. when you find one drag him out here and show us the thing. Until then its just textbook fiction.

@BROTHER LEE...Well sure, if you wanna get all technical! Just kidding:) I thought that was an amazing post, very informative. Thx.(T) PEACE
I'm assuming you're referring to my post that answers Grace Walker's question as to what I believe our anointed Savior died for me for?

Thank you, Brother. I became a little frustrated because there was so much more I wanted to include, about the promises to Abraham and the latter. But, oh well.

Did you notice the last two scriptures I had to squeeze in at the end? I, actually, had to remove some of my post to fit them. I think only six spaces were left in my character count! Anyway, I posted them purposely, hoping to show certain people that there are verses that oppose that whole "all sins past, present, and future" business. Here they are again, though.

Romans 3:25
Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God.

2Peter 1:9
But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.

And just so there's no misunderstanding...

New International Version
2Peter 1:9
But if anyone does not have them, he is nearsighted and blind, and has forgotten that he has been cleansed from his past sins.

And I don't know if you've been catching them, or not, but I've composed posts explaining, what I believe to be, the proper interpretation of the verses that Grace Walker quoted a few days ago. So far, I've gotten to Romans 2:14, Romans 3:21-22, and Romans 4:14-16. I'm having issues with the next one, though, because I wrote down "John 1:16." And upon reading it, I can't understand why she would quote that verse to try to validate the "once saved, always saved" doctrine. I'm not sure, but I think I might have written down the wrong verse. I tried to find her post that had those verses, but to no avail. I'm going to skip it, though, and go on to the next verse quoted. And just in case anyone wants to accuse us of not meeting the challenge, I've been recording all the page numbers to where the posts are.

But, yeah. There's quite a bit more I would like to share as to what our anointed Savior accomplished. And again, without knowing the law, especially, we'd never understand! But, uncleanness has a lot to do with it. And by "uncleanness," I mean what we inherited from Adam and not the sins that we've committed, or that we commit. It's so much easier and faster to explain face to face, or on the phone. Here's a quickie...

Why did the high priest have to sacrifice for himself? Were there no people considered righteous, or perfect? What about Job? Was he the only one? What about Enoch? What about Zacharias and Elisabeth, John's parents? So, is it possible that the high priest could have been perfect, even according to the law? Of course! So, why would the high priest, even if he was perfect, still required to sacrifice for himself? Rewind, now, to Adam.

Adam sinned. And because he sinned, he became what? If you said, "Unclean," you're absolutely right! And according to the law, none that was unclean could approach, never mind the temple, but the most High, too. So, even the high priest had to perform the required, ceremonial cleansing laws and offer sacrifice to be considered clean before he ministered unto the Lord and on Israel's behalf.

I'm running out of space. Our anointed Savior is the what? Second Adam. Meaning what? In one sense, he was born without a human father. Therefore, he was born what? Clean! He didn't inherit Adam's uncleanness. And this is why he was able to return to Father and approach Him, to mediate for us! And this is the actual "perfection" that's meant that we receive through him. We were cleansed of Adam's uncleanness! And this was our primary cleansing.

Wow. Imagine how much I talk?

Thanks for your time and consideration, Brother.

Until next time...

They was fine til they stood up, an it was all over! Long time ago, we used ta fill a 2 gallon jar with cherries an fill it with "lightn'n" ...let it set fer a month or so. A handfull would wreck ya too. All of it can be trouble. Ya don't jist give that stuff ta anybody...they'd kill themselves. LOL!

Hello Mary. IMO improvements in medicine, living conditions, and nutrition probably has more to do with average life-span that war but can I ask the correlation you are making between that and believing in God? I am not sure I see how the two things are connected.

It's no surprise about the "hittite" part ta me. Even when Abrum was ordered from what they call UR and was in Jeru salem it was nearly all Hittite. History don't like that either.

Not long ago I made a similar statement...we all believe in something even if it is just in mankind.
I was corrected really quickly that was not the case.
You know...I will just let Karl handle it from here.
I however agree with your statement...IMO we all put our faith into something...even if that something is ourselves. I don't know that I would call it "worship" in all cases as we use that term normally but without belief...what is there?
Just cold hard facts? Maybe that is okay for some...I wouldn't know how "not believing in anything" feels.
I once asked a friend who is atheist how it felt to believe in only yourself...he couldn't answer...he hadn't ever looked at it that way.
When I feel the wind kiss on my face
I am reminded of those gifts of grace
Some never feel the wind on their face
They are busy trying to win an obscure race.
That is my thoughts as the wind kisses my face.

Just a few points to ponder.
There were many forms of Gnosticism.
We only have documents from two allegedly gnostic groups.
Most of what people believe about Gnosticism is based only on what The Roman Catholic Church said about them centuries later.
There is little evidence that they were not monotheists.
The Christian and Jewish Kabbalah are almost identical to the early Gnostics.
The Gospel of John and Revelation are indistinguishable in content from Gnostic texts.
The Gospel of Thomas is indistinguishable in content from the accepted Canonical texts.
Lastly, the Christian doctrines of "Birn Again" and "Guided by the Holy Spirit" are identical to Gnostic doctrines based on what we know from the few Gnostic documents we have.
Gnosticism is still alive and doing well, we just call it Christianity now.
