Do you guys ever think about your own doctrine?
Romans 9:16 So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.

9:16 It - The blessing. Therefore is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth - It is not the effect either of the will or the works of man, but of the grace and power of God. The will of man is here opposed to the grace of God, and man's running, to the divine operation. And this general declaration respects not only Isaac and Jacob, and the Israelites in the time of Moses, but likewise all the spiritual children of Abraham, even to the end of the world.- Wesley's Notes

7 And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another,...
8 And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?
9 Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia,
10 Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes,
11 Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.
Did you just edit the Bible, dusty, to force it to service a point you wanted to make? How very "true Christian" of you!

Tell me, class, why did all these disparate people happen to be in Jerusalem at this particular time cited out of context by dusty?

Question just for dusty (again): Do you suppose Jesus and the Pharisees spoke Greek to each other?

We both can agree that your citation bears absolutely no relevance to my question, right?

Silly Christians....

Actually, we as Humans make choices because we, well, make choices. There is no evidence outside of your myth that it is otherwise.
Your judgement day and "his wrath" are merely scare tactics that you apparently have fallen for. Any religious organization that is based on fear defies Logic when the presentation is of a god-being of love and compassion.
The irony continues.
The catholic church is finished!

If your elderly friend, who is now deaf and mostly blind, were shuffling down the driveway into the path of a speeding car, would you tackle him, and risk hurting him, to save his life?
Or would it be more polite and loving to just let him be killed?

Hip writes: the parable of new vs old wineskins.
duststorm: I remember also being taught that it was new wine vs. old wineskins;however, I just looked it up and Matt., Mark, and Luke refer to bottles, and that the new wine broke the old bottles.
I'm sure the old plumber Chuck Colson would get a kick out of
getting the credit for the born again doctrine; but right now he is with Jesus, and there is no awareness of this world for those in the arms of the Savior.
dusty, dusty, still thinking God spoke in Elizabethan English?

Strong's 779 - askos = a wineskin, a leather bottle

No need to scrap that KJV, because it is literately pretty at times, when God's not slaughtering innocents and coming over virgins, but for actual knowledge about the Bible you might at least augment with a newer translation AND a Strong's, at least.

A wrathful God who opened up the earth and swallowed them whole.
A God who said "I will not always strive with man."
A God who will not go against his word.

Wouldn't your time be better served roaming the streets looking for blind, deaf, elderly folk about to walk in front of a car?

Please recruit someone to film you "tackling" them. "Elderly" folks just love being treated "elderly".

Not practiced in the Bible or by me. It wasnt practiced by early Christians either, only by the romanist. There is paganism in Christianity today but not in the Bible as i said. Christianity was not founded out of any paganism - which is condemned in the Bible by God.(Sun worship forbidden -- Ez 8:16,17; Jer 44:17-19 -- Queen of Heaven forbidden) There are many other passages about the practices of the pagans & heathens including one on the obelisk, child sacrifices, and the list goes on. It's pretty long really. Easter is mentioned once in the KJV when the romans were observing this day just before the crucifixion.

The title of the thread implies in and of itself that there's going to be refuting of the bible.
The whack-a-fundie thng is once again brought upon by yourself. Bringing your beliefs on to a thread with this title will probably bring some whacks to fundies don't cha' think??
And it appears your lord hardened their hears...and then wants to destroy them. What kinda wierdo do you worship anyway?

Amusingly, the blind Irish Druid Mogh Roith was there at the time, also.

One tale has him as the Baptizer's executioner.
