The messenger brings the word from the authority, to the person.
Who’s interpretation is true?
the boy's interpretation is true, as long as there is no authority present to supersede his decision, isn’t it? Surly the fulfillment was according to boy and out the context and the spirit of the message that was sent. This seems to be the case in today’s society. To go by one’s own judgement and not according the authority who sent the word, and disregard for the judgement thereof, of which the messenger found abhorring.
that and I busted out laughing when I read it
The word Hell is used a lot here it seems…so I thought it may be interesting to chat about it.
I am sure we have many different takes on it between us all.
I’ll kick it of with this.....
Those of us who have done a lot of witnessing , outreach , and trying to share our faith with unbelievers know that we are often confronted with many questions, especially on the subject of Hell and eternal punishment. We’ve been there, done that haven’t we.
We have found that many people have a real problem with Orthodox Christianity's belief that non-Christians will be punished eternally because they are not Christians.
We have found that this is one of the main reasons many Christians do NOT enjoy sharing their faith with the...
I've written out a study outlining the possible year of the second coming of Christ, based on the jubilee year cycles that occur every 50 years as mandated by the Torah, the 1290 years of Daniel, and then the 1335 years of Daniel which come after, which expires around 2027 AD. The appointed times in the book of Daniel accurately predicted the first coming of Jesus 490 years after the decree to rebuild Jerusalem around 457 BC, so knowing the approximate year of the return of the Lord is related to understanding these appointed times in Daniel and in the Law of God. The study can be found here in English...
We know that we have had many threads on 'Law v Grace' and 'Faith v Works’ Including hundreds of posts on all of them.
We basically all know now where each other stands on these issues as we have all ready the numerous posts.
So here I just wish to ask in this Thread…not what you each believe, but for those of you who do believe that we are required by God to keep the law to tell us how you personally actually do that.
Please tell us how it works for in your every day life?
If you have been a Christian for many years believing this, then how has it been working for you?
*How much closer to perfection are you now than when you first believed?
Now that these misleading dates of the rapture, and end of the world have come and gone. Let’s get the scriptures correct. Revelation Chapter 12 have been misused, misunderstood, and flat out abused. let's see if we can get it right by the POWER of God’s Wisdom.
#1. I believe that Revelation chapter 12 is referring to the birth of Christ and his church. Matthew chapter 2 hold this information, I believe. by keeping one hand on Matthews chapter 2, we can understand chapter 12 in Revelation. Not saying that anyone’s beliefs are right or wrong, but can be discussed.
the reason for saying this, it dawned on me when explaining the difference of choice and will that there is no freewill as advertised in philosophy corners. its some thing I have been aware of, but never found the explanation for.
the reality that God can bring anyone to his knees is proof enough. and many kings presidents dictators and other manipulators of the public's perception of themselves know this. freewill serves as a secular thought and feel good that one has control over one's self. nope not so, for one, no one escapes what's in their hearts and will do it should the opportunity presents itself that satisfies the fear of consequences. and two, one may not be willing to do some thing, but again if circumstances exist they...
