  1. - The below is an item of interest that may or may not have any bearing upon the OP. ● Heb 11:17 . . By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son At the time of the offering of Isaac, Abraham actually had two biological sons; the other was Ishmael. So then, how might Isaac have been the only biological son? Well; it's impossible to actually revise one's biological heritage; but there was a legal way to do it back then. ● Gen 21:10 . .[Sarah] said unto Abraham, C
  2. The koiné Greek word for "only begotten" in John 1:14, John 1:18, and John 3:16, John 3:18, Heb 11:17, and 1John 4:9 is monogenes (mon-og-en-ace') which is a combo of two words. I'll tell you what it means; but I won't tell you how to interpret it because there lacks a consensus of opinion how best to do so. The first is mono, which is a common prefix, e.g. monophonic, monogamy, monofilament, monotonous, mononucleotide, monochrome, monogram, monolith, monologue, monomial, et al. The other word is genes; from whence we get the English word gene; which Webster's defines a
  3. - ● Gen 1:31 . . And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. Some feel that the cosmos-- all of its forms of life, matter, and energy --was created incomplete, not quite up to snuff: that it was to Man that God entrusted the task of putting on the finishing touches. But that is very doubtful. Why ever would God, after an overall inspection, conclude His work by pronouncing it all good-- and not just good, but "very" good. Why would He say the creation was very good if in truth it was incomplete?
  4. - ● Gen 6:5 . . God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. It's freaky to contemplate that humanity's designer has a way to eavesdrop His creatures' mental processes on a level with which they are mostly unfamiliar. ● Matt 15:19 . . Out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, So then, it's not how your mind works that defines you, no, it's how your heart works that defines you; and a man's heart is easily capable of hoodwinking his own consciousness.
  5. - Rom 12:1 . . Present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. Sacrifices are basically things dedicated to God; i.e. set aside for God's purposes and/or utilized in such a way as to make God feel special instead of disgusted and/or disappointed. Rom 12:2 . . Be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Personal Bible reading is a good place to begin; however, the will of God isn't mea
  6. - Hello again; Sorry for that temporary blackout. It was definitely cowardice on my part for letting a certain element hereabouts intimidate me. Nehemiah would have never caved like I did and I'm ashamed. Anyway, I'm ready now to put my nose back to the grindstone; so let's get back on track forthwith and get this wall built!! ● Gen 1:28a . . And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, Some interpret that verse to be an edict requiring married people to have children; and that they have no business getting married for any ot
  7. Think about it Invicta. How's anybody supposed to discuss the Bible if they don't know what they're talking about? Those kinds of discussions can only end up as perpetual bull sessions that never get to the bottom of anything because the Bible isn't meant to be learned by means of discussion; it's meant to be learned by instruction that's taught by someone enabled by God for that purpose. (Eph 4:11-14) ● 1Cor 12:29 . . Are all teachers? The answer to that is a great big NO. ● 1Pet 4:11a . . If man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God.
  8. Patience me boy; patience. If this thread survives; it will eventually get to information in the New Testament's epistles related to Christ's believing followers hooking up with Spirit-enabled teachers. BTW: If you prefer teachers with seminary degrees, and/or recommendations, and/or accolades, and/or books published, and/or many years and hours of preaching, lecturing, and Sunday school experience: I can tell you right now that your search criteria is faulty; but we'll get to that all in good time. /
  9. Though Roman Catholicism incorporates the Ten Commandments portion of the covenant that Yhvh's people agreed upon with God as per Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy; technically it isn't based upon that covenant. /
  10. There's some information about me in the "Introduce Yourself" area. Look for New Old Man On The Block. My testimony is there too. You'll have to scroll down a little to find it. There's additional information contained in the introduction to the Daily Genesis thread in the "Bible Issues" area. BTW: If you are not competent and/or qualified to teach the Bible, then you are sure as heckfire not competent and/or qualified to discuss it nor to critique others making the effort. /
  11. - ● Luke 16:25 . . Abraham said, Son, remember I should think that one of the negative aspects of hell is memory. How people down there retain their memories sans the brain cells they left behind with their corpse, I don't know; but they do, just as the rich man is able to experience thirst sans a flesh and blood tongue. The older one gets, the more memories they accumulate, and many of those memories haunt us with terrible regret. However, people in hell not only have to cope with their bad memories, but also the good ones too, and I should think it is rememberin
  12. - Rom 6:11 . . Reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. "dead to sin" in this case doesn't mean Christ's sheep don't sin (cf. 1John 1:8-10). It means that sin can no longer give God cause to slam them with the sum of all fears. ● John 5:24 . . Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. Note the grammatical tense of the "hath" verb in the above vers
  13. There's some information about me in the "Introduce Yourself" area. Look for New Old Man On The Block. My testimony is there too. You'll have to scroll down a little to find it. There's additional information contained in the introduction to the Daily Genesis thread. BTW: Just a friendly reminder gang. This thread isn't about me, nor is it about you. It's about Christ's commandments. Let's stay on-topic; always keeping in mind the world is watching, so we really ought to give them something useful to think about instead of talking about ourselves. /
  14. It ain't what you know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so. (Mark Twain) DaveW; is it impossible that what you sincerely think is truth isn't? Do you honestly believe yourself infallible and speaking for God ex cathedra? I urge you to exercise restraint in your choice of words lest the hapless day arrive when you are forced to eat them. /
