try and learn your Bible and dont be so ignorant as that sda cultist is.<quoted text>
You are right. There are mention of harlots in the Bible, and N.T.
Unfortunately, we can only "guess" in the book of Luke, what type of sinner the woman was that put the fragrant oil on Jesus' feet. It always makes for a more "dramatic" effect that she was a harlot, but is not so stated.
And I was wrong in saying there were no harlots in the N.T. But I meant this in reference to Jesus, in the Gospels, and not the whole N.T.
I was just a bit in shock when I saw preston wrote that Mary didn't know Jesus as the Messiah from the beginning....It has something to do with not being able to accept his humanity. And so it makes me wonder a bit on what sort of ideal he has for himself, as a person, women in general, and humanity as a whole....
I will be praying for him some more so that he may understand, repent, and accept Jesus Christ.
this person who used that oil on the feet of Jesus is NOT MARY MAGADELEN, IT IS THE SISTER OF MARTHA AND LAZARUS.and they are always portrayed as FRIENDS of Jesus, NEVER AS A SINNER, LIKE YOU ARE CALLING HER.
AS far as the other mary being portrayed as a prostitute, that name calling rests entirely on the catholic church and its pope, right?
and just to help you out as concening my being Born Again. reference John chapter 7, verses 36-39.
that Experience doesnt come to a person that is unsaved. in fact it has come to very few, since ther are few that walk in the Way of Holiness and you wouldnt undestand that since you are acatholic and depend on your rituals instead of being actually Saved and filled with the Holy Ghost Baptism.
and to help you out(you need it)for Mary to recognize that Jesus was the Messiah is ONE thing, to ACCEPT Him as Her Savior, QUITE ANOTHER. adn if she had His siblings had done that, she wouldnt have been outside lookin in. the fact that she told people to do what He said(at the wedding) didnt and doesnt mean that She had accepted Him as Her Savior.
YOU BEING A CATHOLIC LOOK AT THE CARNALITY OF MARY, I LOOK AT THE SPIRTUAL, BEING A CHRISTIAN.BIG DIFFERENCE !!!!!
