A Christian would answer these questions in less than a nano second...evidently you can't:
Does this verse teach Christ is God: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
Do you agree with the following teaching, that is supported by Scripture???
SBC:
Christ is the eternal Son of God. In His incarnation as Jesus Christ He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. Jesus perfectly revealed and did the will of God, taking upon Himself human nature with its demands and necessities and identifying Himself completely with mankind yet without sin...
And: The Catholics:
Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God...redeemer of the human Race..

I'm getting concerned for you. This 'thought' is in no way related to my post.

I have asked him before..I have no idea what point his,questions,are for.

About Jesus being The Son of God?? Yes He is but not sure what else he wants us to say ..do you know

God kindly gives you the FREE WILL to decide between HIS PLAN, and your own...

Well.....I don't believe that man can supersede Gods will and make that chose. God has to make the first move on a person or he will always be in a lost condition. Jethro8 is correct because salvation is of the Lord, the author and finisher in ones faith. If you claim a right of a free will chose the finishing part of salvation will belong to you. If it belongs to you then you can clearly boast of how by your own free will you have saved yourself. Anyone can be saved but, it will be by the sovereign grace of God and not by ones so called free will.

Salvation is a free gift.

Grace .Faith ..all free

But as with any gift ..it's given..But to have a benefit from that gift ..one must receive it .

The free will comes from the freedom to open the gift or give it back unopened ..

THE GIFT IS MIST DEFINITELY GODS work ..But we are free to throw it right back ...in The trash.

Would insurance companies,even give out information in their clients.
I am sure abuse occurs in any place where adults,are in authority ..including homes..And even some cults c claiming to be Christian.
But something about that report rings less. Than truthful ..imo.
Fir one thing the settings in Protestant churches tend to be more group oriented ..
But hey..even one case is too many in ANY setting. Imo
There is nothing untruthful about it at all. It is facts reported by credible sources.

Notwithstanding the media hysteria over sex abuse in the Catholic Church, priests abuse at a rate far lower than that of other males. While even one case of abuse is too many, approximately only 4% of all active priests between 1950 and 2002 were even ACCUSED of abuse – a rate far lower than that of other males in the general population.

Newsweek magazine, April 7, 2010:

"[B]ased on the surveys and studies conducted by different denominations over the past 30 years, experts who study child abuse say they see little reason to conclude that sexual abuse is mostly a Catholic issue.'We don't see the Catholic Church as a hotbed of this or a place that has a bigger problem than anyone else,' said Ernie Allen, president of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children …

"Experts disagree on the rate of sexual abuse among the general American male population, but Allen says a conservative estimate is one in 10. Margaret Leland Smith, a researcher at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, says her review of the numbers indicates it’s closer to one in 5 …

"Since the mid-1980s, insurance companies have offered sexual misconduct coverage as a rider on liability insurance, and their own studies indicate that Catholic churches are not higher risk than other congregations … It's been that way for decades."

USA Today, June 6, 2010:

"If anyone believes that priests offend at a higher rate than teachers or non-celibate clergy, then they should produce the evidence on which they are basing that conclusion. I know of none. Saying 'everybody knows' does not constitute scientific methodology."
– Dr. Philip Jenkins, Pennsylvania State University. Protestant

Well....it is a gift of grace but only to the ones intended to receive it and they will not reject it. If you believe it can be rejected you believe a falsehood.

It is more like God makes himself available, and men use and abuse His availability, to which you complain....This has been done thought history, and I don't think it will change anytime soon.
Its okay though because God is very patient and forgiving....
You misunderstand me, I don't complain, I'm pointing out facts.

I will never buy a Bible nor will I ever purchase a cross.

I don't think anyone should profit off of Jesus or "God".

IMHO - since "greed" is one of the deadly sins, many so-called "Christians" will find the demise they shun upon others, to be their very own - if one is to believe in this kind of thing.
- Since I don't believe that a loving Father will shun me to my demise, I guess I can't really believe in a "hell" as others do.

Rather naïve of you...(smiles)
I get at least once a month a "renew" your subscription pleading from National Geographic. I wonder why, and where they get the money to print up, and send their mail?
I suppose if I gave them some money they would go away? lol
Nicely said!! LOL!

If there was an ulterior motive by NG, IMO - it would be related to giving the world what Christianity failed to do, reveal a part of Jesus that was rejected by men.

This is a good thing.

I wholeheartedly agree with you on this jealousy issue.
But because it is a vice that expresses a sort of rage and anger, it is a difficult demon to slay. It comes back to life if one is not watching, in many different forms.
I suppose it is more recognizable when one has fought the demon within many times. Its head is PRIDE.
I'll disagree it is difficult.

'If one dwells in love, one will become what one dwells in. If one dwells in evil [many different types and names], on will become what one dwells in.'

It really all depends upon honesty, Self, and and out change toward others. We all have it within us to ward off 'demons'[faults, misgivings, failures], and one can achieve success, if will power is put to the task. Again we speak of Self and the mind.
- If Dave Nelson is reading this, no thinking by the 'heart' is involved. Boo-YAH!!:o)

One just needs to take responsibility for their actions.

No religion required, and for sure, the RCC can't do a darn thing about it either. But low and behold, they think they can.

OOOOOOOOOOOO-OOOOOOOOOO!!!

If there are 'no reliable studies" as you said above, then why on Earth would you imply its more rampant in the CC than other churches?
Are you just guessing?
Btw, there are independent reliable studies. One is the Jon Jay report that the Catholic Church asked to get involved. The Church was very interested in getting to the bottom of the crisis.
I dont know how to explain any better. I told you my concerns about studies of churches. I am aware of the John Jay study.I explained some of the specific factors that have to be accounted for to do a reliable study.I also explained the foundation of my belief that there is more in the Cath church. That is all I can do.

Also do you understand what a HIGH SABBATH is? A high Sabbath can fall on any day of the week. The holy days Israel was ordered to observe etc are all HIGH SABBATH DAYS. They can fall on any day of the week.

I didn't say this.
The Bible should be free. Why pay for "God's word", if it truly was "God's word".
Did "God" charge Moses? Throughout history, did "God" charge anyone to receive "His word"?
- no "He" didn't. Only men have.
**********
Let me suggest that YOU print Bibles and build churches for free. NO ??? Suddenly you realize that it costs someone something.
Perhaps you can get General Motors or Toyota to provide you an automobile for free.
KayMarie
I've done my work with charities. Building/construction has not been one of them.

FYI - General Motors or Toyota don't make products that reflect Jesus or "God".

Unless you have a GM or Toyota "Popemobile". Do you?
- As of yet, no American car company has produced a protective car for the Pope.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Popemobile

Your argument has failed.

BTW - why are you supporting companies to profit off of Jesus and "God"? Are you one of those companies?

Every bible-reader believes he/she reads those words from the viewpoint of "god."
You are simply as deluded as are the others ... but it makes you feel very powerful to believe that you can preach truth and others that disagree with you are "sadly" misguided. Others commit the same folly from their own points of view of how "god" is guiding them.
And so it goes. It's all based on human arrogance ... "I see "god's" truth ... and when you disagree with ME ... YOU are all liars."
Religion is silly stuff in deed!
So what you're saying is that you'd like for all of us that believes to just hush huh about religion period? Be gone thy spirit of Jezebel.

The bible is all over..someone has to pay fir the actual book ...YES.
SO F A R we still live in a buy and sell world ..though it seems fir some reason you think everything should be free.
If no one paid for them...there would be no mire publishing and printing..why don't you get that
I see and understand. You encourage companies to profit off of Jesus and "God".

Most "Christians" are probably with you on this, so I can see how you would promote such deals.

Are you one of those companies?
