if you wouldn't mind, could you explain how a mere man like you and i could atone for the sin of the entire world? and, do you have some scriptual basis for it? thanks!
In the same way a mere goat did for a full year according to Leviticus.

1 goat; Atonement for a year.

1 man; Atonement forever.

For the non-English speaking Jews, do they think "God" is the 'name' of God for Western, English speaking Christians?
Jesus used the name EL, not YHWY according to Mark.

All 'Topix crap' aside, how much do you 'really study' Scriptures ?

One thing I admired and miss about the loss here of posters like X, Senecus and BlindMan is they 'really studied' the Scriptures.

I admit I do not do it as much as I used to; but dang, I find you and others frustrating... and I don't say that in an unkind way.

Thanks to all who passed along their condolences at the passing of my cousin.
Some good news on my aunt. Her and my cousins daughter and her family went out to dinner this afternoon and took her kids to a giant corn maze since the weather was so nice here. I spoke to my aunt a few minutes ago and she sounded so much better. It was good for them to get out and re-charge their batteries (so to speak) in advance of the funeral on Sunday.
Once again thank you to all who have sent their support.
God bless.
May you and your family have comfort and peace in this time of loss.

May God bless you all.

I'm not a linguist or biblical scholar, of course not.

But I dokie that "El" is simply a Hebrew word that means "God". That's why it's written so much in the OT.

Jehovah comes from yahweh which comes from YWHW which translates to LORD (all caps), which is a covenant name of God.

Jesus comes from a Hebrew word, Joshua which comes from Y'shua which translates to Je-Hoshua which means Salvation.

"Je" (closer to "Ha") is a Hebrew prefix that indicates something close to "relating to God". It is not a name of, or for, God.

Put aside the 'belief differences' and you might be surprised that I have something to offer you. You might teach me a thing or too as well.

BTW,

Jesus and Joshua are as closely related as Will and Bill.

Simply variations on the exact same root name.

Hey Skombolis,
I wondered where you were at, on vacation, taking a brake or what. I figured you would show back up when the time was right for you. But it good to see you back in here.
You are right we don’t always realize when God has put someone in our lives for His reasons.:)
All is good and hope it’s good with you too.

Yeah, just decided to take some time off. The length wasn't really planned out, just hadn't thought much about it after being off a bit. I had not planned on returning to post but had stopped in to check something. In doing so I realized I had missed seeing people. And while the amount of posts are down, it would appear a lot of people are looking for a break from the stress as well and it shows in the postings.

With the loss of loved ones, both two and four-legged, health issues, and just life in general it would appear perspective has become the theme. I don't expect Topix to morph into all hand-holding and skipping but it is nice to see the foot come off the gas a little when taking runs at one another. There is enough real things to deal with in life, no reason we can't be a little nicer to one another in an online forum

I have been thinking about God putting people in our lives a lot lately since your post. And that not only it is important to look at people in that potential light but not to take for granted all the people He has already put in our path. The business of life can be challenging at times. But it is well worth the effort. And when considering the handful of things that truly matter, life is very good.

(T) Peace

Question for Christians here: Do you acknowledge/participate in Halloween? I have heard people say it's a pagan thing, and I thought some people would think it's heretical.

On the other hand, it has morphed in our culture into one more holiday to celebrate, and the costumes and graveyard scary/humor make it kind of cool.

So. Halloween, yes or no?

I dreaded Halloween this year. I did not want any dramatic reminder of the Specter of Death facing me at every turn.

It will now be to me a reminder (at least once a year) of the proximity of death... and how precious life is.

That IMHO is neither a Christian nor a pagan belief, merely a human reality.

HALLOWEEN IS OK FOR CHRISTIANS

Halloween isn't being observed in connection with any religious connotations. It is now simply a secular activity mainly centered around children for entertainment

Halloween used to be a Celtic ritual at the end of summer that signified the end of summer and sacrifices to the gods. It was believed spirits would roam the earth and the only way to avoid their wrath was to be disguised as one of them. This took place on November 1st. Now that day is what is known in Catholicism as All Saints Day. Although that was predicated on a belief in what later became known as Purgatory. At the time it was considered Limbo and people would go door-to-door asking for small things (food items) in exchange for saying prayer. The prayers were meant for the souls awaiting entrance into Heaven.

The RCC no longer teaches Purgatory is literal, but rather symbolic of the cleaning process where a person's foundation undergoes a purification. The bad works are burnt away and all that remains is the foundation in Christ (1Corinthians 3:11-15) and because Revelation 21:27 says nothing impure will enter Heaven.

Over the years the only part of this tradition that remained was the idea that was borrowed from the door-to-door exchange. But instead of food for prayers it became trick or treat. And the day was moved to October 31 to further sever any connection to the spiritual origins. It is now simply a secular activity woven into the fabric of Western culture.

So let your kids dress up in costumes and have fun being kids. Go with them to ensure their safety and check the candy to make sure it is safe. It is a completely innocuous activity for kids to enjoy being kids. When you take their mask off and see the huge grin underneath, the answer should be self-evident.

Jesus loved the children. I have no doubt their giggles and squeals of glee when dressing up with their friends and enjoying their time of innocence is a joy their earthy parents and their spiritual Father as well both find pleasure in

I can see why the symbolism could be a little unnerving under the circumstances. Although I'm sure anything that is an annual milestone serves as a reminder both of another year of the gift of life and the inevitable ticking clock. All the more reason to cherish every day

Agreed

The cultural meaning has long been separated from its origins. It simply is what it is now. A day where kids dress up and get candy
