Isn't it "fascinating" how one scripture can be used to discount another scripture?

The bible is full of contradictions ... simply because it was compiled by men with contradictory mentalities.

Jer 31:36 If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the LORD, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me for ever.

Your kidding right? JW are EVERY WHERE!!!
.....There is 1 jahova witness for every 276 american citizens. Just over 1 million in the USA, but their numbers are increasing more than 1.5% per year that Hojo said catholics are increasing.

....I have been to a JW funeral several years ago. A friend from work died. The service was in a union type hall, people were friendly, no big deal!, without the plush carpeting, gold chalices,, priceless stained glass windows and expensive oak panneling that you find in any given church setting.

....Over the years many have come to our door. Never an issue or a problem. Everyone is welcome. I chat tell them I am not interested they leave with a smile, and leave me pamphlet

.....I am not like wounded warrior Preston who sits at his front door waiting for them ready to run them off with a shot gun.

The Jews with their one-god-dogma considered their selves to be wise SCRIBES.

They were SO wise that they out-smarted their selves.

The ex-Jew Christians with their crafty theologians in great numbers created a god of their own, and out-smarted the Jews with the following catastrophic results.

When Emich arrived in the town of Worms, the town's Roman Catholic Bishop tried to protect the Jewish population, but the Crusaders overran his palace and slaughtered some 500 people who had taken shelter there. Another 300 were killed over the next two days. The graves of the massacre victims can still be seen at the Jewish Cemetery at Worms.

mar 16 - The Crusades began the massacre of Jews in York, England.The Jewish population of York fled to Clifford's Tower overlooking the rivers Ouse and Foss during an anti-Jewish riot. A crazed friar set fire to the tower and rather than be captured, the inhabitants committed mass suicide.

Whenever I would pick up my KJV bible to study it, my guts would get into a knot. I just knew intuitively that it was a book that would pit me against my neighbors if I allowed my self to believe that I was saved while others deserved eternal hell.
I suggest that such teaching originally stemmed from mental illness, and that is "why" my conscience did not want me to welcome it into my thought-process as being based on universal truth.
You should have been praying for others and trying to help others come to the KNOWLEDGE of the the TRUTH so that they could be saved.......

You have to take it as a whole and it all goes hand in hand. There have been a few times when I would say to some on here now read the rest of that chapter. Reason being it explained it and all of it together made the whole not just one picked out verse.

Of course the Jews would have been angry at the Ex-Jew Christian theologians for writing a lie that the Jews killed Jesus because they were jealous of his love for only Christians.

In earth-"time" THAT would be why the Jews wanted to kill the Christians.

That LIE was a dandy.

A Jew came to earth (the spawn of a Jewish God) and being raised and trained to be a full-fledged Jewish Rabbi (King of the Jews)... suddenly goes off his BEAM and jumps into the river Jordon to be baptized by Saint John into the Christian religion.

Some Christian theologian ought to have CHOKED on that lie it was SO HUGE.

When a pope decides to jump into a river to be baptized as a Protestant ... then I will consider the Jesus-story of him choosing to be baptized as a Christian actually has a ring of truth to it.

But as a Catholic pope will never stoop so low as to choose to be baptized by a Protestant ... I'm safe to make that silly statement.

The claim of the theologians (scribes) was that the god DID speak to them ... but ONLY to them "personally."

His secret was safe with THEM of course ... sarcasm intended. It was just others that the creator denied to give any "knowledge" .. because they were EVIL and not worthy of knowing universal truth.

That was the VAIN story of the theologians (scribes) that held the power over followers with their blatant lies of claiming to know "secret" universal truth.

Jesus spoke in parables, but stated blessed are your ears for they hear and your eyes for they see. In order to understand his words and know what he wants you have to have faith in him and pray for the understanding of the words of God. The Bible was given by divine instruction. It is a great mystery to them who are without, but to them who believe and study it.....it opens up.

I am sorry but that is all I can say about it. Before I got saved it was a parable unto me and I couldn't fully understand it, but when I truly got saved and began to pray for the understanding it began to open unto me and I am amazed at it.

The hatred is based on the jealousy of "How DARE you claim that the creator loves YOU and not ME, when It SAYS right in my religious literature that 'I' am his favorite 'subject?' If you want to be saved, you MUST believe as MY religion TEACHES you to believe."

Michael,
I don't think the Bible teaches us to hate anyone but to love everyone and pray that all should come to the knowledge of the truth. I do not know all things myself I am ever learning as the Bible says. I am not proclaiming any denomination because I love everyone. I have said before I can worship God with anyone who is worshiping him to the best of their ability and following his word and has his love within their hearts....it doesn't matter to me which denomination they are from.
In Revelations it speaks of the seven churches. So in my opinion there is not just one church that will make it to heaven, but any that is doing the will of God.

The religious scribe before writing should have been expected to KNOW universal truth. Otherwise he should have kept his pen to his self, as he had no right to earn his living by promoting gossip of vain-men as being based on universal truth.

Of course if I found an easy living by promoting lies as universal truth, I might just fall prey to my own self-centered will.

After all, being a scribe was an easy living compared to emptying the stinky pots of the religious leaders of kingdoms that sat on thrones in the guise of being chosen as the creator's truth-preaching servants on earth.

As long as the scribes wrote what they were expected to write, they shared in "God's" bounty ... so yes, I probably would have written lies in trade of earthly comforts.

Why NOT jump on the bandwagon with all the other liars???

It makes total sense!

Thomas Aquinas was warned that his abilities as a scribe were not what the pope of the day expected ... so Thomas learned for fear of his own death to write exactly what the creator had dictated via mental telepathy to the pope. Sarcasm intended.

This is the basis of a spiritual law, that I call the “IF” YOU DO “THEN” I WILL DO LAW!
Well then, if that is true, then salvation is NOT a gift of God.
No rational person gives a gift and then says,'Oh BTW, I will take the gift back if you do not do as I say'.
That is neither a gift nor a benevolent position.
It is coercion sir.

Legal definition of coercion:
Coercion generally means to impose one's will on another by means of force or threats. Coercion may be accomplished through physical or psychological means.

Of course you believe universal knowledge is a secret to ME and not to you. Otherwise why are you on a forum wanting to teach me to rise to your ability to KNOW universal spiritual truth.

Idiot!
