For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope( Grace) did; by the which we draw near unto God.(Heb. 7:19)

Dont you notice that the law is Opposite of drawing near to God?

Christ came to fulfill the Law in two ways

1) Christ, through his sinless life came to fulfill, or satisfy the righteous demands of the Law on Man's behalf. Christ came to fulfill and provide for Man what the Law demanded and promised but could not provide.

2) Christ, through His incarnation came to fulfill, or declare Himself the embodiment of the types and shadows of the Law as revealed in the Messianic prophecies concerning Him. He was in His person the fulfillment of each prophetic type, shadow, and promise of the coming Messiah (Jn. 4:25-26).

Christ came to fulfill and to provide righteousness for us. Christ became the Just and the Justifier of all those who believe in Him:

1) As the Just, Jesus is the only one who lived and met the standard of righteousness that the Law required.

2) As the Justifier, Jesus is the only one through whom righteousness can be imputed to those who put their trust in him (Acts 3:14; Rom. 3:26).

Your kindness must be due to your faith shrinky...

I can only thank you for sharing a wee bit of that with me.

I now know and have seen what Jesus does in your life...

I am astonished.

I must ask though...are QUIRLS...squirrels with quills?

Not only are you a great spiritual leader shrinky...you are wealth of knowledge also.

Wiktionary says the Quirls (quirle) is the German word for (cooking) beater. Why would you not want me to talk about cooking beaters??? Is it the code name for something that I don't know about?

Quirl is always a great word to know.

Here is a new word for you shrinky dink...

Ignoring? That's an assumption dearest. I know many people have different experiences and beliefs and I respect them and have never been against anyone for that. Prejudice is idiotic. We are not clones and are all different, I can only speak for myself in this but it does not mean that the beliefs of others go unnoticed. The only thing I will not tolerate is evil and its fruits, I have good reasons for that and I'm ok with it, as is the Sky, I asked him earlier <smirk>
Well, if you accept that their gods are real for them, no problem. It's just that your last post really didn't suggest that - but these posts are too small to encapsulate everything and sometimes you just want to get one idea across, so my mistake.

Uhm...why would anyone of us tolerate evil? Unless we were James Bond villains or something.

OK, based on what you say there...
Let me ask you this. In your understanding of enculturation, what would the Christian Religion have to accomplish in another culture, for you to say this is not the result on enculturation, but some other theory or a paradigm of an undiscovered source?
What?

All cultures are encultured, all religions are learned and practiced through the social. Recall that "culture" is a short-hand for an indeterminate set of shared, practiced ways of interacting with the world around us.

In the light of how humans work, your sentence is nonsensical. I'm not especially surprised.
Can you articulate a reasonable outcome to change your view of Christianity and enculturation?
Yes. If Christians grew clones with genetically programmed Christian brains, they would not be encultured, but predetermined.

I don't know that would be enough - we'd have to have positive, functional education systems, educated, scientifically literate politicians (impossible, right!), and a lot more honesty with regards to the treatment of others.

But it would be a nice start.

I'm still surprised that no nation has outlawed the Catholic church for its incredibly immoral policies of protecting pedophiles. I mean, it is the most powerful, organized institution of suppressing victims of molestation - what could be more frightening?

We know they guess because of the many times they change their minds (different to admitting they were wrong) because their own science outsmarts them.
It might help you if you actually learned how basic science works and the kinds of neato stuff we know.

Honestly, a pretty short and easy to write post :)

The person who denied claiming you were obsessed, and then presented her post that claims you are obsessed as evidence that she made no such claim, never responded to me asking her if she had, in fact, read her own post.
