  1. Indeed, the English word "paradise" is often used for the Garden of Eden. But that is NOT the question. The question is whether God the Holy Spirit ever inspired such a usage in the Holy Scriptures. If you use common human usage as your argument, then common human usage is your authority; but a sad (and unsound) authority it is for Biblical doctrine. Destroyed in the Flood. Where does God's Word indicates that "captivity" is a "them"? Actually, in His resurrection our Lord Jesus Christ took the captivity of death itself captive. Now the power of death and hell are in His han
  2. As for myself, I KNOW that Paradise is "a part" of the third heaven - because God's OWN Word says so: 2 Corinthians 12:4 -- "How that he [the one who was 'caught up to the third heaven' according to verse 2] was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter." Do you have ANY passage of Scripture that defines the Garden of Eden as "Biblical Paradise"? (If not, then your statement is human fabrication.) Do you have ANY passage of Scripture which indicates that Jesus took "Biblical Paradise" (apparently the Garden of Eden, ac
  3. Once again, what does God's OWN Word actually say about this place called "paradise" --
  4. I myself am also praying that Vice President Pence will serve like a Daniel for President Trump.
  5. We are voting for a Leader, and we desire that our Leaders possess good moral character.
  6. Acts 20:29-30 -- "For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them."
  7. The apostle was speaking under the inspiration of God the Holy Spirit TO - the believers at Thessalonica. The apostle was speaking under the inspiration of God the Holy Spirit ABOUT - "ANY" who "would not work." 2 Thessalonians 3:10 -- "For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if ANY would not work, neither should he eat."
  8. This also is a misrepresentation of my position, for my position presents the need to balance ALL of God's teaching on the matter. Consider the following: Also consider: Now, the "entire body of principles in God's Word" on this matter would include the following studies: 1. The responsibility to give in support of church leadership and the Lord's work. 2. The responsibility to help fellow believers in material need. 3. The responsibility to help the Lord's Jewish brethren in material need. 4. The responsibility to help the general poor and needy. 5. The r
  9. This statement is a misrepresentation of my position, and as such is a false accusation. I have indeed indicated that those who WILL NOT work (that is -- the "unworthy lazy") "should not be given food." However, I have also indicated that welfare is "supposed to be FOR those who CANNOT work." Consider the following:
  10. Ah, I see. Then I must contend that you are falsely accusing me. A "liberal" interpretation" would be one wherein the Scriptures can be handled "fluidly," allowing for the redefining of terminology and for an allegorical understanding of passages. In Webster's New World College Dictionary 4th edition, the #4 definition for "liberal" is as follows -- "not restricted to the literal meaning; not strict [a "liberal" interpretation of the Bible]." (Politically, such is the manner with which liberals are handling the Constitution of the United States.) Whereas, a "literal" interpretation wou
  11. At this point, I am guessing that your use of the word "liberal" above is a mistype, and that you actually meant to use the word "literal."
  12. Matthew 25:31-46 -- "When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: and before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: and he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: for I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I w
  13. Just a small comment at this point - There is a difference between a "movement" and an "organized association." An "organized association" has membership by an official membership "role." A "movement" simply has membership through interactive relationship and influence.
  14. In relation to my own God-given responsibility of stewardship over the material wealth that the Lord our God has entrusted to me, I must determine the answer to that matter for each case through the entire body of principles in God's Word concerning work ethic versus laziness, as well as through prayerful submission to the guidance of the indwelling Holy Spirit.
  15. Actually, it is best to seek obedience unto God's Holy Word in ALL matters, both in helping the genuine needy, as well as in confronting the unworthy lazy. The precepts and principles of God's Holy Word are not to be compromised either on the right hand or on the left. When God's Word states -- "If any WOULD NOT work, NEITHER SHOULD he eat," God's Word is providing a clear instruction concerning our behavior toward the unworthy lazy. Any individual, group, or program that does not seek a legitimate application of this Biblical principle in its giving policies toward the poor and need is not
