In the end of Moses life he has a song where God prophesies about Israel falling away
and God spiring up jealousy by going to the gentiles
Isaiah and the Song of Moses start the same way and both speak of a rebellious Israel and Isaiah
appears to build on the same. Moses spoke of a future falling away. Isaiah speaks as though it is here.
So what's with all this God yelling to a people who are not my people who aren't even seeking him 'here I am! here I am! In a Christian view the...
Just curious, but -- if you are seeking "spiritual advancement, possibly to enlightenment" -- are you in the habit of clinging to your religious and/or spiritual beliefs? Do you hold your beliefs firmly? Do you see them as necessary for your spiritual advancement?
And if so, how do you figure that is helping you?

I put this in religious debate because marriage and having families tends to be very important in most religions, the bible says to go forth and plant the seed or raise children is what it means, replenish the earth.

The correct method that works for me is to rely on my Consciousness to...
The lack of impressive floors in the buildings for the most part!

Most other grand churches in other countries have beautiful gleaming floors nice patterns with checkerboard squares or floral motifs. Look at the lovely floors at Notre Dame Paris, St. John the Divine in New York, the St. Peter's Basilica in Rome and the Westminster Abbey in London.
Why were the floors skimped...
What does it take to be seen as a "educated" person within religion/spiritual life?
Can on only say that the person is educated if they have a masters degree or doctor degree in the field?
What about those who cultivate a religious path? One who live only for the spiritual advancements? is this person "educated" enough?
This place in 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 has been the subject of debate in eschatological circles. For futurists and dispensationalists this is one of the most relied places when it comes to the theory and teaching of the rapture.
As always context is king. Quoting scriptures is not enough to teach sound doctrine. Understanding the original audience and the context is paramount to interpreting the meaning. We have been separated from the original audience by thousands of years, by culture,...
