|1||who can explain to me?||John 1:1||Renovate Me||120284|
|Hi Rowdy, Yes you say correctly, for no one does have all the answers, and I would steer away from anyone who feels they do.
I just caught your post about the concept of the Trinity, and I thought I'd share something I heard the other day.
We all are aware that God is Love, right? well that proves existance of the Trinity I am told, because love cannot exist without an object, right? So, there is the spirit of love, the one that loves, and the one that is loved. hence three in one.
Also, man was created in God's image, right? That is to say that man is three in one as well. We are comprised of body, soul, and spirit. But you are right. We will not know completely until that which is perfect comes to us. Only then will we know as we are now known. Until then, we can only peer through a soiled window, and catch glimpses of what will be (see the second half of the "Love Chapter" 1Cor 13)
In His awesome Love,

|Thank you, Hank, for your response.
Yet it seems my biggest problem with non-believers always seems to be the first 6 chapters of Genesis.
|3||Jesus is the Son of Man?||Dan 7:13||Renovate Me||116070|
|Thank you, Suede, for an insightful answer, Me.|
|4||How many, where are Beatitudes?||Matt 5:3||Renovate Me||115750|
|Tim, Thank you for your answer and thank you for clearing up the discrepancy. Now I understand what the godly man was referring to. You have increased my faith in God and man. Bless You,
|5||How many, where are Beatitudes?||Matt 5:3||Renovate Me||115708|
|Thank you Tim, What I was referring to was a statement that a respected minister made while I had my head under the hood of his car today. (I was ministering to an oil leak.) I am aware that there are Beatitudes found in Luke, but I was told that there are also (The complete number of)7 Beatitudes in the Book of Revelation. has anyone heard of this?
Tim, your other comment also interests me. you say Ten? In Matthew I count 8, (verses 3 thru 10) and then in 5:11 there is an application of the former verse, thought to be spoken to the disciples, because of the change in the pronoun used. What do you think?
|6||looking for scripture||Rom 12:1||Renovate Me||114834|
|Hi. Looks to me like you accidentally posted a question insted of a note, so I answered you in the question above so that it would not remain an unanswered question. I agree with you how this is a wonderful site and I have received many wonderful answers to my questions as well.
God Bless You and yours.

|10||where Paul studied after his conversion?||Gal 1:12||Renovate Me||112391|
|Thank you for your input, Rowdy. I have used the Gateway search feature, but I guess I just could not come up w/the right words to pinpoint what I needed. Another great word search site is at blueletterbible it does exact phrase matches as well as every occurence of each individual word in the phrase, up to 5 at a time.
God bless you also,
|11||where Paul studied after his conversion?||Gal 1:12||Renovate Me||112383|
|Thank you, terrib. I was looking all over in The Book Of Acts, No wonder I couldn't find it! (o:
My study partner and I were discussing this, so now I am able to fill her in. Thanks again, may God bless.

|Rowdy, Thank you for this reply which is the very essence of my reasons for logging on to this delightful forum.|
|13||The Exodus's importance to Hebrews?||Exodus||Renovate Me||112203|
|I have always appreciated and looked forward to your responses, My eternal brother. This is why I wish to thank you for you clarification of your previous post. Your post did initially have a negative effect on me, but again, I am sensitive.
It is extremely difficult to portray our message from the heart over this media, and too often we are misinterpreted. Without the benefit of body language, (accounting for 85-90 percent) it is actually impossible to accurately portray our true feelings. I find many of my posts on this Forum to be: not answered in the vein in which they are intended, but attackerd by those who feel I am wrong and they should correct my wayward thoughts.
I am thanking you with my heart for your splendid response, (in multiple, as they may be) and look forward to future threads that link us together.
Blessings con amore, my brother.
|14||verse says no longer bound by old test?||Rom 8:1||Renovate Me||112124|
|The OT laws were not canceled by the NT, but perfected in the first coming of Christ. Jesus summed up ten commandments for us into two great commandments.(Mat 22:37-40) It would be impossible to break either of Jesus' two commandments without violating at least one of the original ten, and versa-vise.|

|Tim, If you do not have a problem with using churches for AA, I guess that is the answer I was looking for and the pastor has my blessings.
Thank you for your valued input.
|16||How do we know saturday is the sabbath d||Col 2:16||Renovate Me||110981|
|Thank you, Kalos for your reply. I never intended to state any facts in my post, I was trying to help the questioner imagine the way things were back in the timeframe of the OT, in which his inquiry was based.
Yet my presumptions were not entirely unfounded, as the ones most likely to have originated the idea of a solar calendar would have been the Egyptians. This came about when they noticed that the star Sirius, in Canis Major, as being visible right before sunrise was something to take note of. The star had a yearly cycle only 12 minutes shorter than the sun, and after Sirius appeared in the east, the Nile would begin to flood. This could point to the new year being related to a geophysical event, not entirely astronomical.
Based on this knowledge, they devised a 365-day calendar that seems to have begun around 4236 BC, the earliest recorded year in history.
They eventually had a system of 36 stars to mark out the year (which equals about 10.5 days per week) and used three different calendars concurrently until approx 2,000 BC:
a star-based calendar for agriculture,
a solar year of 365 days,
a lunar calendar for their festivals.
Assyria was a kingdom of northern Mesopotamia in what is now northern Iraq and southeastern Turkey. For accounting, the Assyrians also used a kind of week, of five days, relating to the name of one of their officials. This way, interest on loans could be calculated for a number of weeks in advance independent of the inaccuracies of the civil year.
At about the time of the conquest of Babylonia in 539 B.C., Persian kings made the Babylonian calendar the standard in the Persian Empire.The origin and history of the calendar year of 12 months of 30 days, plus five days (that is, 365 days), remain unknown. It became official under the Sasanian dynasty, approx 226 A.D.
Thanks again, and God Bless

|18||can i pay my tithes to my mother?||2 Cor 9:7||Renovate Me||109392|
|Also from John MacArthur, "One study of several denominations revealed a gradual decline in giving over seventeen years, though average income increased sharply in that time period. Material riches are proving to be a spiritual liability. Christians now have more money at their disposal than at any time in human history, but they proportionately invest far less in the kingdom. The same study further revealed that almost half of all charitable giving in the United States comes from households with annual incomes under 30,000 dollars. James 2:5 comes to mind: "Has God not chosen the poor of this world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom which He promised to those who love Him?"
-as the musician once said,
"Golden country, your face is so red, with all of your money, your poor could be fed..."

|Thanks, here's a story for you about conquering the beast.
A hunter was walking through the jungle and he was startled as he came upon a pygmy standing next to a very large dead beast.
Standing there amazed, he asked the pygmy, "did you kill that?" To which the pygmy answered "Yes."
Then the hunter inquired how such a small person could ever overcome such a huge beast, to which the pygmy replied,"I killed it with my club."
The astonished hunter then asked,"Oh? How big is your club?" and the pygmy replied, "There are 85 of us."
My wounded brother, We are members of a club that is able to conquer any beast that comes our way, and this club is called the church. And oh how powerful the club is and how we are all needed to attend every meeting.
I will pray for your liberation from this addiction. We must start by praying specifically for power over the beast, the very next time the urge strikes. I know as well as you that this is a real tough enemy to conquer.
In His service and yours.
|20||can i pay my tithes to my mother?||2 Cor 9:7||Renovate Me||109212|
|Thank you, Prayon for your post but please allow me to clarify for I am afraid the meaning of my message was misunderstood.
I give very generously to my church and pastor in time and money, but my income has been known to fluctuate wildly so sometimes I give 50 percent and sometimes 20 and sometimes less than 10 percent. This is what makes me feel good as part of a congregation and I pay no attention to the word 'tithe' since I feel that it is ALL God's money, we are only using His gifts during our short journey upon His earth. To me, it is not how much to give, but rather, how much should I KEEP? Which is why I chose the verse above to head this thread. What is a tithe for? Well it is hard to understand how one can put guidelines on the feelings in one's heart. If one, like me at times, has all needs met and bills have been paid, then I would not feel right giving ten percent of a week's income, because "he who sows sparingly..." That is what makes tithing impertinent. However, the fact remains, that in many churches, if every member would faithfully give ten percent every week, there would be no need for the fund-raisers that are so often necessary.
One final verse in closing, from KJV, Heb 11:6
But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
In His Generous Grasp,
