  1. Before writing was invented, people greatly respected the integrity of oral history. The narrative would then have been passed down from the various people involved. Adam would have been the author of the beginning of Genesis, various others might have contributed based on relevance and importance of their contribution. But it was Moses who authorized and ordered it being recorded into writing and those he authorized continued to write it to include his death. That would be Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus and Numbers. Deuteronomy was added later during the reign of Josiah when another written recor
  2. So you're argument and defense of your viewpoint is that logic is unscriptural and should be avoided by Christians? Doesn't address what I wrote.
  3. You are using the natural ambiguity of language to "force" the Bible to say things it clearly does not say. God told Adam and Eve that on the day they ate the fruit they would die. On that day the process of death began. Often the initiation, the process and the conclusion are referred to by the same noun or verb. Since we understand what is sin, yet do not have the capacity to resist it the curse of sin inhabits us all from birth, but does not actually become sin until we make the choice to sin. The Bible was intended to be read with common sense, not blind devotion to vague concepts that def
  4. When I decided to redo https://kjBible.org, I wanted to copy the look and feel of the older (1700s) Bibles. I found scans of the 1769 King James bible online (in DPF format) and downloaded it to use as a guide. I'm only able to work at it occasionally and my regular job permits. Recently, though, I've been working on page layout for my site https://byTheFireplace.com and was able to get it to display the pages like a book (an example can be viewed at https://dev.bythefireplace.com/Fiction/Christian/442-The-Innocence-of-Father-Brown/chapter-1/test/#page-1 ) I'm hoping to be able to use that tec
  5. The Master Study Bible is published by Holman Press. I used the Holman crossreference for my sites, https://myOpenBible.org, https://phpBible.org and https://kjBible.org. (I also have the Treasury of Scriptural Knowledge crossreference, but it is massive, leaving me with the problem of having too many crossreference verses to fit in the margin). The verses you mention only partly match up the the Holman crossreference I have, so they may have changed it.
  6. Here is how I have defined "Legalism" and "Liberalism" in regards to Christianity and the Bible. God's word expresses both Obedience and Compassion. Those two will ALWAYS be in balance. Legalists place Obedience above Compassion to the point that Compassion is trivialized and more often than not completely dismissed entirely. Liberals place Compassion above Obedience to the point that Obedience is trivialized and more often than not dismissed entirely. However, the practice of Legalism always results in disobedience, because true Obedience factors in Compassion. (Example: t
  7. Happy Birthday! may God bless you and yours. 🎂

  8. This is funny. Anyone of any intelligence knows that masks are worthless in stopping the spread of disease among the population, and actually creates health hazards instead of preventing them. It's political theater, and nothing more.
  9. In the New testament the word Prophet (προφήτης) can mean either a speaker or someone who predicts the future. Since the Bible mentions a lot of things that hasn't happened yet, whenever we tell people about the prophecies of the Bible, we are literally acting as a prophet. Yes, there are people who profess the truths of God, and in that meaning of the word they are modern day prophets. And also there are people who warn about the things the Bible say will happen, so they also are prophets of God. But I think what you really mean are those who claim to know of future events n
  10. You assume the condemnation of sin is some arbitrary attribute, genetically handed down. What we inherit from Adam is both the knowledge of right and wrong coupled with the inability to always choose what is right. That creates sin, and condemns us. It's not until a child reaches the age of accountability that they make a sinful choice, and at that point become a sinner, in need of salvation. Sin is something we do. A sin nature is something we inherit, but doesn't become sin until we make that first choice to sin, understanding that it's wrong. Our sin nature itself does not condemn us, our c
  11. You could offer a definition, I could offer a definition, but there would result in thousands of other definitions disagreeing with either. The old rules of "Before you begin a debate, define the terms" seems to have been completely ignored when it comes to Calvinism. I wonder if the ignore it when Armenians discuss Arminianism?
  12. But whether that belief denotes mere Calvinism or hyper-Calvinism is the question and different people have different answers.
  13. I've found that when one person uses the word "Calvinism" it rarely means what everyone else thinks it means. There are a lot of different types of Calvinism, some of them hyper-Calvinism, some of them simply "once saved always saved"-ism. You can't assume any one speaker is using your exact definition. You have to feel out what exactly they mean. For my part, I consider myself a 4.5 point Calvinist, because one of the points is often interpreted in a different way than I interpret it. And that presents another problem, even the very points of Calvinism (TULIP) can be interpreted differently,
