Hosea 4:1-12

1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)


4 A complaint against the people and the priests of Israel.

1 Hear the word of the Lord, ye children of Israel: for the Lord [a]hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land.

2 By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and whoring, they break out, and [b]blood toucheth blood.

3 Therefore shall the land mourn, and everyone that dwelleth therein shall be cut off, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of the heaven, and also the fishes of the sea shall be taken away.

4 Yet [c]let none rebuke, nor reprove another: for thy people are as they that rebuke the Priest.

5 Therefore shalt thou fall in the [d]day, and the Prophet shall fall with thee in the night, and I will destroy thy [e]mother.

6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because [f]thou hast refused knowledge, I will also refuse thee that thou shalt be no Priest to me: and seeing [g]thou hast forgotten the Law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

7 As they were [h]increased, so they sinned against me: therefore will I change their glory into shame.

8 [i]They eat up the sins of my people, and lift up their minds in their iniquity.

9 And there shall be like people like [j]priest: for I will visit their ways upon them, and reward them their deeds.

10 For they shall eat, and not have enough, they shall [k]commit adultery, and shall not increase, because they have left off to take heed to the Lord.

11 [l]Whoredom, and wine, and new wine take away their heart.

12 My [m]people ask counsel at their stocks, and their staff teacheth them: for the [n]spirit of fornications hath caused them to err, and they have gone a whoring from under their God.

Present what you think you have on this subject.
It's right there, in the bible.
The apostles were taking a stroll with Jesus and came across a blind man.
They asked Jesus, "what has this man done to deserve this? Was his blindness due to his own sin or his parents"?
Jesus said 'neither...'
Notice, that Jesus never rebuked or corrected them.

Does Jesus say that gays are born eunuchs? So, basically, the sexual act is a sin, but the state of being born homosexual is basically just a calling to be celibate, or being born as a eunuch?
True thing! Either they somehow get an attraction to the opposite sex and marry one, or as you say stay celibate.

That's if they believe in Jesus and care about their eternal soul. If they don't believe in Jesus or care about a soul, then they should be happy with the same sex.

<quoted text>
You are looking at it in a different way than we do Boooots,
It is seeing an existence without all the woe we have here. Not just personal woes but the woes of others too. Who would not see that as a better life? Does not mean we will off ourselves. The truth be known what ever your circumstance in this life on earth, God makes a better way to live it.
Anyway thatís my 2 cents on it.
HFN
I think you have confirmed what I previously said, and you are not familiarizing me with something I do not understand, as I too believed that for 40 some years, though I certainly never wanted to rush it, except on one day when I was at a real low in a very long depression.

The problem with that approach is it is fine, if, what you believe and do not know, to be true, actually, by some strange supernatural miracle, turns out to be true anyway, but if you are wrong, which I have no reason to not think you are but only a bit of evidence that you are, then you are diminishing the value of what you can enjoy in the living body by thinking it is secondary to what your bodiless spirit might enjoy after the body is dead.

Even if you are right, which neither you nor I know the truth of, I think you are still batting better to maximize the enjoyment of what you know exists now. You know you are alive and you know much of what is out there to appreciate; you do not know if a life exists after death (even if you think and state that you know).

If you KNEW that an afterlife was definitely a proved state then this conversation would not even have got started on this site.

I would be interested in how you have felt the hand of God, and I am sure the world would like to know that too, as it might remove any doubt from 7 billion plus people's minds as to what or who God is, or if He exists.

I am sorry if you feel that participating in a discussion is making fun of your beliefs. I try to be nasty only to people who are promoting hatred by specific bigoted ideas that they attribute to their belief in a god. I have no tolerance for bigotry, and I will not dignify a bigot or his comment by being overly polite to him because I think he is a real problem to our world.

If that seems like bigotry, I do not promote hatred against or discrimination against even devout believers, but I will always stand against those who promote hatred against any group of people. I try very hard to never do that myself, though I am sure that occasionally I unconsciously say something that seems like a put down of certain groups.

I will admit that I have become overly conscious of extremely obese people, because Canada, almost as bad as the USA, has a very large majority of overweight and obese people now, and I not only find them not very attractive to the eye, but also upsetting to my intelligence because I cannot imagine how people would allow themselves to get that obese.

I admit my feelings are not very kind, but I never advocate nor vocalize them to others except my wife, and she and I seem to both be similarly sensitive to seeing these people, possibly because we live in a section of the city where there is an inordinate number of them that show up in our nearby stores and malls. We even had on our floor for a number of years two sisters in separate apartments, who would be two of the heaviest people in the world, I am pretty sure, close to our age. Unfortunately for them, they both died at around 60 to 62 years of age and not very far apart in time either.

I also still have a similar reaction to smokers, but having had to put up with them for 66 years, I keep those feelings to myself also, but just see them as not only being addicts, but if young, not being too bright, because they could not possibly have grown up thinking that smoking was a positive thing to do, not in an environment where smoking has been condemned for several decades, and outlawed indoors for a decade or so.

It is not fashionable, it is just a right that homosexuals have been denied in most societies for a long time, but are finally seeing most of the progressive societies to recognize they have equal rights to all other people. Like all human rights issues it tends to get a lot of media coverage because it is controversial and people enjoy hearing about controversy.

Fortunately for the public we still have lots of bigoted people to keep entertaining them. Fortunately for society as a whole these bigots are the ones that will soon have nowhere to go but to change their thinking or just keep quiet.

Unknown. It is believed to have been compiled around 500BC, but the text and oral traditions are much, much older than that.
It is believed by some that the actual authors of Genesis were Adam, Noah, the sons of Noah, Shem, Ishamel, Isaac, Esau, Jacob and Joseph and it was later composed by Moses. Since Moses predated the compilation by 1,000 years, it's a guesstimate on when the first Torah was composed.
Ok.
I would agree to the compilation of the torah about 500 BCE.
Perhaps slightly earlier.
However, text traditions as you state could not have been written prior to approx. 1,000 BCE.
So then what you actually have is an oral tradition that was in play from the 11th c. BCE to the 20th c. BCE, a span of approx. 1,000 years, dating back to the summoning of Abraham.

A 1,000 years is a long time to not have anything written.
It's complicated enough to have an actual account with writing so to believe a 1,000 year span tradition as factual is totally absurd.

Rumors that certain selected patriarchs were authors of the torah is just as absurd.
Wouldn't you agree?

Experiencing God Day By Day:
The Way
Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.(John 14:6)

If you are walking daily with the Lord, you will not have to find Godís willóyou will already be in it. If you are walking with Him in obedience day by day, you will always be in the will of God. The Holy Spiritís role is to guide you step by step to do Godís will. Walking closely with God each day guarantees that you will be exactly where He wants you to be. You would have to reject all of the Holy Spiritís activity in your life in order to get out of the will of God.
*
The disciples never had to ask Jesus where they should go next. They simply looked to see where Jesus was going and stayed close to Him! Jesus was their ďway.Ē They didnít need a map as long as they had Jesus. Too often, we would prefer a road map of our future rather than a relationship with the Way. It often seems easier to follow a plan than to cultivate a relationship. We can become more concerned with our future than we are with walking intimately with God today.
*
Jesus will never give you a substitute for Himself. He is the only way to the Father. Thatís why it is critical that you clearly know when God is speaking to you (Isa. 30:21). If you are disoriented to how God speaks, you will not understand when He is giving you a new revelation about what He is doing. If you want to know Godís will, take time to cultivate your relationship with Jesus and learn to identify His voice. He is more than willing to show you_the way.

If you're trying to place your opinion of the bible as the right opinion, then you are saying you think you understand the bible better.
It is extremely contradictory to your lack of knowledge in basic spelling and grammar.

So when you claim that you know what the bible says and that the other person is wrong about it, you are lying, for you can't understand it's words if you don't understand the language it is written in.
