God’s Dietary Laws: No Pigs, Crabs, Lobsters, or Shrimp

little lamb, re: "And a voice stated ' stop calling unclean what God has cleansed '" Actually, that is incorrect. The verse says: "What God has cleansed you must not call common."  (Apr 18, 2016 | post #7)

No choice in taking the Mark 666

re: "No choice in taking the Mark 666" Actually, "666" is the number of the beast and not the mark.  (Apr 18, 2016 | post #16)

Matthew 121:40

With the new year upon us, maybe there will be someone new looking in who knows of examples as requested in the OP and clarified in further posts. And again, remember that the purpose of this topic is not to discuss how long the Messiah was in the heart of the earth. As stated, there are other topics that do that. However, there are those who say that Matthew 12:40 is using common Jewish idiomatic language such as the Messiah saying that He would be in the heart of the earth for 3 nights when He knew that it would only be for 2 nights. But in order to say that it was common, one would have to know of other instances where the same pattern had to have been used. I am simply looking for some of those instances, scriptural or otherwise. So far no one has come forth with any.  (Jan 17, 2016 | post #71)

Why do people still believe Jesus died on a Friday?

I guess Just the Truth has left the building.  (Jan 2, 2016 | post #26)

Why did Catholic church try to change the SABBATH to sunday

Nsk14, re: "The text of the verse rules this out; St. Paul says 'so that the collection will not have to be taken when I arrive', which would certainly be the case if it are a matter of people saving up at homen." Even if the collections (money and food) were to be stored up at a central location, nothing is saiid about rest and worship on the first day of the week. So my point still stands that there is not a single scripture that says that anyone got together on the first of the week for a special day of rest and worship. If the 3rd Commandment (RCC) has been recinded, I should think that there would be clear, unmistakable scriptural instruction outlining the change.  (Aug 8, 2015 | post #8)

Why did Catholic church try to change the SABBATH to sunday

Nsk14, re: "Note my above citation of 1 Corinthians 16." Tthere is nothing in the passage that indicates a first day gathering. The text merely says that everyone should "lay by him in store" on the first day of the week. The New Swedish and Norwegian Bibles read: "At home by himself" The Lamsa Translation reads: "Let each of you put aside and keep in his house". The Weymouth reads: "Let each of you put on one side and store up at his home". Ballantine's Translation reads: "Let each of you lay up at home". The Syriac, on this passage reads: "Let every one of you lay aside and preserve at home". And the New Catholic Edition of the Bible reads: "....let each one of you put aside at home and lay up whatever he has a mind". This verse says nothing about going to church on the first day or even assembling together on the first day.  (Jul 27, 2015 | post #6)

Just the Truth, re: "Yes, Jesus was crucified on Wednesday..." How do you square that with Luke 24:21?  (Jun 17, 2015 | post #24)

RELIGION SATAN DAMNED, I have no idea what your comment has to do with the OP. I wonder if you might explain?  (Mar 27, 2015 | post #35)

Why do people still believe Jesus died on a Friday?

Disciple, re: "So how is it that people still believe this Friday evening death and Sunday morning resurrection...? " If by evening you mean around 3pm in the afternoon, the usual reason is that they believe that the "preparation " and "Sabbath " mentioned in Luke 23:54 was referring to the 6th day of the week and the weekly Sabbath. However, John 19:14 says that it was the "preparation day of the Passover" which could fall on any day of the week. And they usually try to get around Matthew 12:40 by saying it is using common Jewish idiomatic language where the Messiah's forecast of 3 nights actually means 2 nights.  (Mar 25, 2015 | post #18)

Matthew 121:40

Perhaps a slight edit of the OP will make it a bit more clear. Whenever the three days and three nights of Matthew 12:40 is brought up in a “discussion” with 6th day of the week crucifixion folks, they frequently argue that it is a common Jewish idiom for counting any part of a day as a whole day. I wonder if anyone knows of any writing that shows an example from the first century or before regarding a period of time that is said to consist of a specific number of days and/or a specific number of nights where the period of time absolutely couldn't have included at least a part of each one of the specific number of days and at least a part of each one of the specific number of nights? To say it was a common idiom, there must be examples of it in order to say that it was common.  (Mar 25, 2015 | post #33)

I don't understand

dollarsbill, re: "Rev 20 They shall be tormented day and night forever ..." The KJV only says that the devil will be tormented forever. There is no scripture that says that anyone else will be (tortured forever).  (Dec 7, 2014 | post #634)
