To my knowledge, only Catholics look up the definitions of Greek words, of all places, in the English dictionary!!!!
ophelimos: helpful or serviceable, i.e. advantageous:--
OK.

In English or Greek, it doesn't say "sufficient".

Thanks for the assist.

If your deity "knew" his experiment was destined to fail, and continued with it, knowing the result, he surely "missed the mark". That is the definition of "sin".= an attribute if imperfection.
If God knew the result aforehand, then it's not a "failure", is it, BT?

Thanks.

I haven't ignored your question. This thread moves so fast I couldn't begin to keep up with it, and I can't possibly answer any & all of the posts I'd like to, not even of the ones specifically addressed to me.
Anyhow, I'll try to answer now, although I'm sure you won't hesitate to split hairs on the meaning of every syllable.
The Jews are now, as they always have been, the Lord's special people, set apart by Himself to be His people.
Exodus 19:5 "Out of all nations you will be My treasured possession. Although the whole earth is mine, 6 you will be for Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation."
But He gives the right to be His children to any & all people who call on Him as Lord and Savior.
John 1:12 Yet to all who did receive Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God.
That's my perspective.
I don't need to split hairs.

If the one god that exists favored the Jews, then all of the offshoots of Judaism (members of Catholicism, Islam, and Protestantism) were and are the ones splitting hairs. You are all trying in vain to steal the affections of the one god away FROM the Jews ... and that is not nice behavior.

Within the theology, if the god was faithful to his Jews, you should all be practicing Judaism ... period ... end of the one-god story!

And if the one-god is NOT faithful to his Jews, then he won't be faithful to either Catholics, Muslims, or Protestants, as fickle gods simply can't be trusted.

However ... religion is all silly stuff indeed, as fantasy travels wherever and whenever it pleases ... gathering nothing but fluff.

<quoted text>And are you aware that if a Christian invokes the name of Christ,it can make a devil impotent? Now that's power.
Many people that needed mental help were exorcised again and again of supposed demons by superstitious members of religion.

To have mental problems to begin with and then to be told that the self is full of demons is cruel and inhumane.

People should be taught that mental illness is nothing of which to be ashamed ... that it is a normal disease that can be treated with medication.

NO, I am not incorrect.

If you have faith that Jesus saves, and you believe in Jesus, then you will have complete faith that you are saved.

To say that you will have to wait until judgment day to find out if your investment in faith paid off, is to show doubt that just maybe it won't pay off.

You can't have it both ways.

The lost chapter to Alice in Wonderland.
The Hatter was very mad indeed Alice thought as she ran through the woods.
She was sooo,sooo,hungery as the tea party broke up so suddenly.
She smelled somthing so good,she stopped and saw a hollow tree! And inside it was a window.And inside the window was a nice elderly lady baking pies!
"Hello my dear! Do you want a slice of pie?" she asked.
"Why yes mam,my name is Alice." she replied
"Hello my dear I am the pie lady June The Loon!"
As she came closer Alice saw the vacant far away look in the crazy woman's eyes.
"No thank you mam,I must be going." Alice sputterd.
"No,no have some pie before you die! You have nowhere to go! Up or down there's no Heaven or hell to be found!"
And the old woman quickly gobbled down a whole pie in front of Alice!
Are you sure you are not a reincarnation of the same men that wrote scriptures???

Luther NEVER INTENDED "creating another church of his own."
Then he shouldn't have.

Luther wanted to get married, and the pope wouldn't allow it, so ex-Catholic Luther and his gang of thugs showed the pope that they could also tell the god of the Jews what to believe.

Good comments! As a former Protestant (converting to the TRUE GOSPEL of Jesus Christ--in and through His One True Catholic Church), what I have discovered (for over 35 years as a bible only believer) that the entire emphasis of being a bible only Protestant is a total reliance on "attacking the TRUTH of over 1500 years of Catholic Apostolic Church History, particularly condemning and passing their personal opinionated judgement against Jesus Christ and His One True Universal Catholic Church. Protestantism cannot survive on its own without attacking the FULLNESS of the FAITH and the FULLNESS of the TRUTH of the Catholic Church, its TRUTH of doctrine, principles,and teachings that are grounded in Jesus Christ HIMSELF!!
I would love to hear your conversion story.

I'm nit even sure what you call fundamentalist..But to me I am one.
I believe in the Bible as,God's holy Spirit filled word.
I BELUEVE in Jesus Christ as my only Saviour.
I am pro life
And BELUEVE we should vote fir people who share our beliefs,if we can find any
I BELUEVE there is coming a time when we all should stand together as Christians. because it will please God and we may need to.
I am not a big joined if movement but I think Fundamentalists and Evangelicals,go to all churches
So, have you managed to convince yourself that the god of the Jews is aligned to your way of believing ... or are you still working on that project?

So you fundies actually DO worship the Bible which you think is GOD.
It is as many Catholics have suspected. Thanks for your honesty. Most fundies would never admit to worshiping the Book.

The rest of the races here on earth were created before God "FORMED" Adam.
You must be posting about the DAYTONA 500 RACES...
There is as much said about it ...as there is about God creating a human race before Adam and Eve
So you must be Roman Catholic ...
You come up with assumptions that have no foundation in the Bible...
That's really an odd ONE..what happened after the floods if that theory is true..makes no sense.

LOL God loves His Son, Jesus, but He loves us MORE. Think about THAT, June :)
If he sent his son to earth to be murdered to save a lot of selfish heaven hogs, then he might just as easily and temperamentally send the selfish heaven hogs straight to hell for being so greedy.

That is ... if he existed, he might pull that stunt.

Who knows what a cruel and fickle god will be up to if he gets into one of his evil moods?

Sorry that God and His Son Jesus are not acceptable to you,
You better join Judaism ... or you will not be favored by the one god. I'm warning you for your own good.

That god created good and evil, and he knows how to use both weapons for his own cause.

He allowed souls to wander knowing they would suffer if they did wander ... that was the good-"hearted" part of the god. Imagine what his evil side is capable of doing when he gets in an evil mood.

Join Judaism ... for your own good.

Hey Old Jay Gee, its over man. This has been the most lopsided debate I've ever seen. You guys have been proven to be ridiculous ignorants. You should have never tried to get into this. Seriously, this ain't funny. You guys can't possibly really believe what you're saying anymore .. There's no way.
Amazing, isn't it?
