Jasher continues the story of Abram: "And it was in the fifteenth year of Abram's dwelling in the
land of Canaan, which is the seventieth year of the life of Abram (the year 1986 B.C.), and the
Lord appeared to Abram in that year and he said to him, I am the Lord who brought thee out
from Ur Chasdim to give thee this land for an inheritance. Now therefore walk before me and be
perfect and keep my commandments ... And thou shalt come to thy fathers in peace and in
good age, and the fourth generation shall return here in this land and INHERIT IT
FOREVER" (Jasher 13:17-19).
Now notice carefully! God told Abram that He would give him the land from the river of Egypt,
the Nile, to the river Euphrates -- and he then told Abram that he would die, peaceably, and in a
good old age -- but notice now! Abram would RETURN in the fourth generation, and inherit the
land FOREVER! This is a prophecy for the FUTURE! In this instance, the fourth "generation"
means 4,000 years, for a full "generation" is a thousand years in fulfillment -- one "day" (II
Pet.3:8-10). Abram was born and lived circa 2,000 B.C. Four "generations" or four thousand
years from that time brings us to circa 2000 A.D.! This is one more astonishing evidence that we
are surely living in the generation of the END TIME!

Yes--the bible IS the word of God--however it is not the "only source of truth" that God chose to transmit His divine infallible word! It can't be because the bible "cannot interpret itself"! That why in I Tim 3:15, Paul calls the Church (not the bible) the pillar, the pinnacle foundation of the TRUTH. You keep arguing that the bible is the only and final authority. However, not only does the Bible "never say that", but the Bible tells us that the (Church) is the final authority. If you want to be faithful to the Bible, then you must be faithful and adhere to the words of Paul in Timothy and follow the TRUE INTERPRETATION of the Bible (only) in Jesus Christs One True Apostolic Catholic Church....... This is exactly why bible only Protestants have "accumulated" an inconsistent, contradicting, and conflicting "hodge-podge" of over 42,000+ Protestant denomination of confusion and chaos in their "self-interpretation, with their own self-appointed 42,000+ popes,(mis-interpreting the bible) that HAVE NEVER, nor WILL EVER agree on ANYTHING accept attacking and condemning Jesus Christs One True Apostolic Catholic Church
Here is why your post is half right hojo.For one the Evangelicals no matter how many names they go by,are solidly one in spirit and in truth.They all believe in the Trinity:Father-Son and Holy Spirit.They all believe that human beings are sinners in need of a Savior,and that the Lord Jesus Christ gave Himself as a ransom for many,on the Cross after brutallity by both the Jewish Sanhedrin and the Roman guard who scourged His Holy Body.

Christians have for centuries put their trust in the LORD,and served with great devotion and love the SON,Who is the epitome of Mercy and GRACE.

The Roman Catholic Church is just O n e church,or organization that serves the Living Christ,and although I believe hojo that the LORD uses all believers,He has some issues with Roman Catholicism,and one of those issues is the century old production of images(statues),the building of edifices that honor and glorify saints especially Mary the Mother of our Lord Jesus.

The RCC has broken the FIRST commandment and continues to do so,so as the only interpreters of the Holy Scriptures,that is with great doubt as they clearly do not understand the First Commandment,and sought to break it forcing many in the past to buy and venerate such things,which the LORD considers part of an Abominable assent from His Commandments.

Rosary beads clearly are also a pagan practice as they follow Eastern pagan religious practices as observed by both the Hindus and Buddhists.As a matter of fact many Catholics who are high in the eschelons of office and Church Society consider being aligned with Buddhism especially as adopting their practices which although may be useful,are all counterfeits of what God want to do with His people,not using pagan elements.

The Buddhists by the way had monasteries and such long before the RCC and Orthodox,that is something which a lot of people do not realize as being a similarity that aligns Catholics with Pagan non Christian ways,taking away the Jewish roots of our faith,and aleinating us far from our Judeo-Christian roots.

The Word of God is discerned and perpetuates spiritual discovery and truth,that alone makes the Word of God,something most precious to the Holy Spirit,and not lacking in the ability to direct and even govern Christian bodies,without the totalitarian efforts of a large religious institution.

Most Protestants have the misunderstanding that whatever a Pope says even if he prefaces it with an opinion is changing the gospel. lol Yet, their ministers very very often say in my opinion, you may disagree etc. Scholarly work is of no importance.

According to at least one protestan source albeit biased against the church the Pope was merely saying that he believed the Angels spoke not sang and that it was believed that their voices were like song. He did not say it never happened nor was it in the gospel. That would be a fair statement, but since I have not seen the exact quote forgive me for not trusting secular and protestant tabloids as we have seen them so accurate so often in here. ROTFL

I somewhat agree with your post. Christianity makes no sense (on the paper).
I mean, how did it survive? If you were Christian for the first 300 yrs, you were imprisoned. If you were a Bishop or Priest, you were killed. It makes no sense that this religion could have spread throughout the world when its origin is a poor homeless man with 12 followers. By all logic (on Paper) it should have ended when this man was put to death and His closest followers ran to the hills during His trial and crucifixion.
Who would ever believe this man was the Son of God? He had nothing (on paper) to offer anyone. No triumph. No land. No wealth. No freedom from Roman Empire. Yet, people believed Him?
And then, the brutal and evil Roman Empire, who'd been killing Christians for centuries, suddenly becomes Christians themselves?
Makes no sense.
The Church He started should have crumbled long ago as well. They are still very much hated. Every tyrant had the Vatican in their scopes and sought to topple it. Napoleon kidnapped the Pope and jailed him!
The sins of the members of the Catholic Church should have crumbled it too. Even the current abuse scandal cant bring it down!
A Pope a thousand yrs ago, had an affair and committed murder. Yet, even he could not bring down the Church!
The Protestant reformation offered a 'hands free' type Christianity, with no apparent authority - other than ones private interpretation of the Bible. Still, they could not topple the Catholic Church.
Ever heard the phrase it's Not Over Til the Paper Works Done.

I don't see anything about singing here. Perhaps you misunderstood Anthony's request.

According to the pope's research, there is also no evidence in the Gospels that the cattle and other animals traditionally pictured gathered around the manger were actually present.
Pope debunks Christmas myths

He also debunks the claim that angels sang at the birth, a staple theme of Christmas carols.

The book, which is being published in multiple languages in time for Christmas, is the third in a series by the pontiff. The previous two volumes dealt with Jesus' adult life and his public ministry.

Alessandro Speciale, Vatican correspondent for the Religion News Service, told CNN the pope was not so much aiming to debunk myths as trying to show that the Jesus depicted in the Gospels is a real historical figure, who walked on earth and talked to people like anyone else.

But while the book points out that the Gospels do not support the presence of animals at Jesus' birth -- a detail apparently added in later centuries -- the pope does not suggest they should be thrown out of the Nativity scene, Speciale said.

"The pope is a traditional man and he doesn't want people at all to change their traditions," Speciale said.

The Vatican quotes Anthony Valle, a professor of theology, as saying the pope has been open to scientific inquiry in his own study of Jesus' life.

"The pope is not against the historical critical method at all, in fact, he uses it, he appreciates it," Valle said.

He sees the pope as using "both faith and reason" in his efforts to bring the life of Jesus closer.

Monsignor Philip Whitmore, who translated the book into English, said the pontiff used his writing to explore "the inner meaning of the infancy narratives, showing how they pick up on Old Testament themes and develop them in new and unexpected ways."

"The pope helps us to understand the world where Jesus was born. Caesar brought peace to the Roman Empire, but this tiny child brought something much more wonderful: God's peace, eternal life, an end to sin and death," Whitmore added.

"Anyone who's wondering why Christmas came to be such a great celebration in the West can find the answer right here. The pope explains how the birth of Jesus changed history forever."

2) Is the bible wrong when Paul says "JAMES THE BROTHER OF THE LORD"

3) Is the bible wrong when it states Jesus FIRST born son of Mary. That means more children.

4) Is it wrong when it says is this not the son of the carpenter and all his brothers are with us.(lol)

5) Brothers are mentioned James, Joseph, Jose, Judas,

Catholics are caught up in this perpetual virginity of mary and the only way they try and save face is to state the BIBLE IS WRONG!

None of these people lived when Jesus supposedly lived. If Jesus lived his entire life a JEW wouldn't the Jews know best? They lived with him.(lol)

I've also read various Protestant commentaries that state there was no actual singing by angels, that the words were spoken.

As Alessandro Speciale said in the CNN piece, the Pope was trying to show that Jesus is a very real historical figure, not some flowery myth. The Pope likes Christmas carols and traditional nativity scenes just as much as anyone else. They're just not biblical.

NONE OF THIS makes you a Christian! Take an example from your wife KayMarie!---As I have told you "repeatedly" she is the ONLY true Christian in your family!
hojo,you may not worhip an idol of a calf,or a god that is foreign to the LORD our God,but any statue of Jesus is clearly breaking the first commandment.Jesus is G O D,is He not?Any image of Him is a false representation of WHO and what He is as being part of the Godhead,and that most of all He is the fulfilment of the Godhead,B O D I L Y.

That even moreso should not allow the people of God to make an image of the Fulfillment of the Godhead Bodily.The RCC has broken the first commandment and continues to do so every time it produces images of Jesus,Mary and anyone else that is connected with faith in God,the ONLY ONE who told His people to never make a graven image of such things or of people that represent the Living God.

I know all the arguments of statues that Catholics attempt to use to validate their breach of the first commandment of God.But that is sad and no matter how many centuries and years have gone by,the RCC still disobeys the LORD,God of Israel with the production and selling of i m a g e s that falsely represent Yeshua,Adonai ha Moshiach.

Hey jethro8,
According to followers of the Catholic Church, Jesus gave them every authority to do whatever they wanted to do and whatever happens to strike their fancy at the time -- and no-one is allowed to question this. They can even torture and murder heretics in Jesus' name if they so desire, because Jesus himself gave the Pope the authority!
-
Imagine that! The Pope AND his ardent followers - can do acts of horror that would most certainly make the Devil proud and claim that Jesus authorized them to! Then they can turn around (sometimes immediately and sometimes years later) and say "OOPS! we made a mistake and the individuals who did *those things* were evil and most certainly non-Catholic."
-
Yet they claim an UNBROKEN chain of popes going back to the time of Peter himself.(And everybody knows that some popes were so evil they would make even the devil blush.)
-
So. In an unbroken chain of popes - how can some be deemed as non-Catholic AFTER they are dead and buried, and yet at the same time, claim that there is an unbroken chain of popes?

Catholicism is nothing but double-think. It has to be. And because the truth is not in them. They can't handle the truth.
the apostles did not have eternal life and either do the popes,why is that? wouldn't it make sense to keep them alive to spread the true meaning of gods word? well the popes couldn't do it,but the apostles could of since they were in jesus' presence,and from 1st pope linus to date,none of them ever spoke to either jesus or one of the apostles.they use some truth,but it is twisted and turned to coincide with paganism.

The pope said the angels were not singing. My bible doesn't say they were singing. Your KJV doesn't say they were singing.
Yes, Sapphira, you are stirring up trouble.

So, it says PRAISING. I did have the wrong paper, however. It was Zionica.

You were stirring up trouble like you always do, in this case, it was mocking the pope when you were ignorant of the facts. When someone is always in the attack mode they tend to have their blinders on. You should pray a little before you toss out the next insult.

I don't see anything about singing here. Perhaps you misunderstood Anthony's request.
According to the pope's research, there is also no evidence in the Gospels that the cattle and other animals traditionally pictured gathered around the manger were actually present.
Pope debunks Christmas myths
He also debunks the claim that angels sang at the birth, a staple theme of Christmas carols.
The book, which is being published in multiple languages in time for Christmas, is the third in a series by the pontiff. The previous two volumes dealt with Jesus' adult life and his public ministry.
Alessandro Speciale, Vatican correspondent for the Religion News Service, told CNN the pope was not so much aiming to debunk myths as trying to show that the Jesus depicted in the Gospels is a real historical figure, who walked on earth and talked to people like anyone else.
But while the book points out that the Gospels do not support the presence of animals at Jesus' birth -- a detail apparently added in later centuries -- the pope does not suggest they should be thrown out of the Nativity scene, Speciale said.
"The pope is a traditional man and he doesn't want people at all to change their traditions," Speciale said.
The Vatican quotes Anthony Valle, a professor of theology, as saying the pope has been open to scientific inquiry in his own study of Jesus' life.
"The pope is not against the historical critical method at all, in fact, he uses it, he appreciates it," Valle said.
He sees the pope as using "both faith and reason" in his efforts to bring the life of Jesus closer.
Monsignor Philip Whitmore, who translated the book into English, said the pontiff used his writing to explore "the inner meaning of the infancy narratives, showing how they pick up on Old Testament themes and develop them in new and unexpected ways."
"The pope helps us to understand the world where Jesus was born. Caesar brought peace to the Roman Empire, but this tiny child brought something much more wonderful: God's peace, eternal life, an end to sin and death," Whitmore added.
"Anyone who's wondering why Christmas came to be such a great celebration in the West can find the answer right here. The pope explains how the birth of Jesus changed history forever."

REGINA M. says......According to the pope's research, there is also no evidence in the Gospels that the cattle and other animals traditionally pictured gathered around the manger were actually present.

What research?? The only writings about the virgin birth are in the gospels. Can't you read them and decifer what they say? No jews, no one from the entire mediteranean, no writers, scribes, statesmen, government officials, soothsayers, or philosophers ever mention the birth of a Jesus.
There is no other sources of information to do "RESEARCH" about the birth of Jesus.

The popes research...(lol)

The whole story about Jesus is just a christian tradition. Much like any other religion that has their action figures and characters and stories about them. Stories that you wouldn't believe, just like your stories that they don't believe.

TRADITION with a lot of fiction.....
