<quoted text>You never bother to get to the nitty gritty of what you want to convince me of. The Holy City of Jerusalem is a city,not a person,but a city is comprised of people who build that city. Jesus does not marry a city does He? The whole Bride of Christ is comprised of redeemed peoples who are filled with the Spirit of "God.Jesus does not marry Angels,nor is the New Jerusalem a place that holds alien beings which are not from this planet.So what is your point? We are the Bride of Christ,but the Wedding has YET to happen,so technically speaking we are engaged to Him,and many of us are in testing as to how we will be presented to Him. What is the truth about the 10 Virgins?5 had oil in their lamps,the other 5 were sloughing and lost their opportunity to get those lamps oiled in time for the arrival of the Groom.What is this OIL that was needed?
The New City of Jerusalem has to have human occupants,surely they are the redeemed of the Lord Jesus Christ,who will become His BRIDE!
Must be something in the holy water...are you guys drinking that stuff???

Another mistake in the bible. Remember these are the inspired words of God.
How many stalls and horsemen?
1KI 4:26 And Solomon had forty thousand stalls of horses for his chariots, and twelve thousand horsemen.
2CH 9:25 And Solomon had four thousand stalls for horses and chariots, and twelve thousand horsemen; whom he bestowed in the chariot cities, and with the king at Jerusalem.
Forty thousand, or four thousand??? What is the real answer?
Very poor writing I might ad, especially in the holy bible.

What? a 3rd of born-agains do not believe Jesus Christ is the only path to Heaven.??

Latest stats also show that the born-again movement has decreased by 22% since 1976. And only 1 in 3 adults who claim to have been 'born again' believe that Jesus Christ is the only way to Heaven.

Obviously, for the evangelical, this is a major problem. If you take the Bible as a literal word for word document, and eliminate reason and logic, you are left to believe that all others are headed to hell except for the born-again believer. Well, requiring your members to be ignorant and embrace bible only has come to a head. You've driven plenty of people into atheism by incorporating forced stupidity into the Bible. Now your own members are becoming enlightened and going against age old evangelical beliefs.
Yikes!

the common misconception among you and all the other fundies is that the Bible came prepared- from the Apostles- and the Roman Catholic Church deciphered the writings, thus forming a theology based upon what a group of Bishops could see, after careful study.
well, that is how the Pentecostal revival was formed. that's not how the catholic faith was formed. The Church came first and the Bible as you know it, is the product of the sacred tradition of this Church. Jesus never commanded anyone to form a Christian set on scriptures. He simply installed an authoritative teaching Magisterium. if you weren't so deliberately ignorant, you could see the Church that's still standing to this day.
Paul was preaching to Jews...not Catholics.when he spoke of traditions in both Thessaloinan epistles.....hence the definition of "tradition"..Quote: tradition: paradosis: transmission, i.e.(concretely) a precept; specially, the Jewish traditionary law:--ordinance, tradition.

But....this is either ignored by catlicks.....denied by catlicks...or not known by catlicks!!!!!

Introduction to the Book of 1 Thessalonians
The Testimony and Success of a Faithful Congregation
The Mission of the Local Church
1 Thessalonians 1:1-20
by Cooper Abrams
Introduction: 1 Thessalonians is Paul's earliest Epistles (letters) written around 51-52 AD. Paul was probably in Corinth a short time after he left Thessalonica.
1. The church at Thessalonica was founded by Paul on his 2nd missionary journey in which the Gospel was taken to Macedonia which was eastern Europe. This was a sea side Roman city, with a good harbor which made it an important trade center. After beginning the new church in Philippi, Paul went to Thessalonica and the New Testament tells us he was only there three weeks or three Jewish Sabbath days.
a. In Acts 17:1-16 Paul and Silas stopped there on his way after leaving Philippi, Berea. It was on the east coast of Macedonia between Berea and Athens. Silas was the Jew from Jerusalem who had been sent to Antioch after the Paul and Barabus went there to resolve the issue of Gentile believers eating meat from the local pagan run meat markets and eating meat with blood still in it. He was led of the Lord to be Paul's helper and traveled with him.
b. Paul, as was his practice, went to the Jewish synagogue and there he reasoned with the Jews from the Scriptures the Old Testament scriptures. In other words, Paul preached Jesus the Messiah from the Old Testament.
c. Some of the Jews believed but others, moved by jealousy opposed Paul and the Gospel. These who opposed him were Jews, self-righteous Pharisees. Although the Old Testament clearly showed Jesus to be the Christ the Messiah, they rejected Him the same as the Jewish religious leaders in Jerusalem.
-These unbelieving Jews were not satisfied just to reject the Gospel, they also wanted to destroy Paul who preached it. Some of the most dangerous people in the world are religious zealots. The Jews gathered a mob of men of dubious character, called "lewd men of a baser sort" (Acts 17:5), to destroy Paul. These were evil and vulgar men, whom the Jewish leaders had stirred up and bribed.

It is a program that seeks out and destroyes those "black holes"....but you had better know your OS very well, as you can destroy it's startup system in the process.
if a trojan miner has entered your startup process, you have to nearly rewrite it to rid it, and that requires you to be an expert programmer....and I can't help you with that from here.

Scripture is not world history. Scriptures are christian belief ONLY!.
There are no writers, scribes, philosophers, statesmen, government officials, or Jews from the entire mediteranean from 4BCE to 30AD that recorded or handed down any tradition/story/miracle that there was a God man named Jesus, yet ONLY in christian scriptures it claims the crowds following Jesus were enormous, and he performed miracles for thousands, yet TOTAL silence from anyone in the entire mediteranean during this time period.
The only writings/stories/hand me down traditions came ONLY decades after this man supposedly died. Then suspiciously these writings disappeared for nearly 160 years before they ALL suspiciously appeared again at the same time and ONLY on the doorstep of the catholic fathers and no one else.
.... Imagine today for the very first time, we hear about the civil war that ended about 160 years ago? About the same amount of time lapsed after the death of Jesus (christians claim)before the christian fathers heard about the gospel writers and what they wrote for the first time.
UNBELIEVABLE!
.... Anyone can write anything about a dead man because he can't dispute anything they wrote about him.
.....very troublesome.
TO THE CATHOLICS HERE ..THIS IS WHAT I MEANT BY MY POST ..You and the ARGUMENTS AGSINST belief in Scripture

TO MICHAEL

Any other collection of writings this old ..That agree on so many things ..That hark back to even older works in their content by events
That happened ..would be hailed as great history ..

But because of FAITH at its heart it's,mocked as myth..superstition.

The words,might be in terms understood at the time ..But they are not contradictory ..despite what you say .

They explain Creation..the settling of Israel...the awaited Messiah ..believed to be so by many Jews ..
The events of His life and death..the spread of Christianity .

It's history ...written by people who believed in ONE GOD ..

And was accepted as such f or centuries,..until secularism invaded the world ...

The bible ALSO says.....
Who is the father of Joseph?
MAT 1:16 And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.
LUK 3:23 And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, which was the son of Heli.
Confrinting, who was the real father of Joseph? The bible gives two different (answers) names. Was it Jacob or Heli?
Take a guess?
One genealogy is of Mary ..another of Joseph ..both descendants of King David ..

Today on the anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun at Fatima, Portugal, Pope Francis consecrated the entire world to the Immaculate heart of Mary.
Pope Pius XII in 1952 consecrated the Soviet Union to Mary. They of course, laughed in his face. But Pius warned them that the Blessed Virgin is always victorious. 40 yrs later, they collapsed and now Russia is still going through a conversion process (that'll likely take another generation or two to reverse the damage caused by the Communists).

I think the age of the self proclaimed, bible thumping authorities is coming to an end. This too will likely take a generation or two to reverse. The false Christianity you all preached will slowly filter away in my opinion.

Ah yes, Paul was telling the Jews to hold steadfast to the JEWISH traditions the Apostles were teaching them by word of mouth and letter. lol
You all think you find a way around every problematic verse. If it don't fit with your ideology, you simply come up with something that does!
The Bible is not yours to play around with. Its a collection of sacred Books that was compiled by the Catholic Church for the Catholic Church. 1500 yrs later, some morons got a hold of it and started 45,000 different christianities. You, Ox, are 45,001. You do not share any of the theology your fellow born againers believe. You may as well pay $29.00 to become your own minister and kick Preston and Confrint out on the street. Heck, declare yourself a Bishop, then shove a Bible verse down their throat until they agree with ya! lol

The Psalms
139

God's Omnipresence and Omniscience
To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.


1 O LORD, thou hast searched me, and known me.

2 Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising;
thou understandest my thought afar off.


3 Thou compassest my path and my lying down,
and art acquainted with all my ways.


4 For there is not a word in my tongue,
but, lo, O LORD, thou knowest it altogether.


5 Thou hast beset me behind and before,
and laid thine hand upon me.


6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
it is high, I cannot attain unto it.


7 Whither shall I go from thy Spirit?
Or whither shall I flee from thy presence?


8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there:
if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.


9 If I take the wings of the morning,
and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;


10 even there shall thy hand lead me,
and thy right hand shall hold me.


11 If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me;
even the night shall be light about me.


12 Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee;
but the night shineth as the day:
the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.


13 For thou hast possessed my reins:
thou hast covered me in my mother's womb.


14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made:
marvelous are thy works;
and that my soul knoweth right well.


15 My substance was not hid from thee
when I was made in secret,
and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.


16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect;
and in thy book all my members were written,
which in continuance were fashioned,
when as yet there was none of them.


17 How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God!
How great is the sum of them!


18 If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand:
when I awake, I am still with thee.


19 Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God:
depart from me therefore, ye bloody men.


20 For they speak against thee wickedly,
and thine enemies take thy name in vain.


21 Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate thee?
And am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee?


22 I hate them with perfect hatred:
I count them mine enemies.


23 Search me, O God, and know my heart:
try me, and know my thoughts:


24 and see if there be any wicked way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.

Able to reAch WHO He wants ..HOW HE CHOOSES ..where THEY are .
