    The bible and slavery - please post direct passages from the bible that you believe support slavery.

    Mark 10:44 And whoever of you desires to be first shall be slave of all. John 8:34 Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. Romans 6:18 And having been set free from sin, you became slaves of righteousness. Romans 6:22 But now having been set...

    JESUS, God, the Ordinal First and Last

    Ah! You are not being honest! Here ^^ you said verse 12 describes the peircing ( that's on the cross ). But you have admitted that the story at pentacost does NOT have your lord being pierced. That splits the verse in half. And you have admitted that no one is mounring in the story at...

    To Die For The Sin of Mankind – what does that really mean ?

    I think you may have misunderstood Jesus’ words in John 8. If you read from John 8:34 to John 8:47, you can see clearly that Jesus was NOT referring to Abraham as the ‘father of lies’, he was referring to the devil as the ‘father of lies’. In context, when the Jews refused to listen to Jesus, a...

    Love and Rebellion

    I said I have Eternal Life, the freedom I have is in Christ and living the abundant life that He promised. “Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. Therefore if the Son...

    The Four Horsemen

    As I mentioned to you before, you're using what is called "word salad". IOW, rambling "essays" minus paragraphs. You have the full right to do that, but many of us have better things to do with our time.

    The Four Horsemen

    Catholics believe in human sacrifice to a God. They are appalled if an Aztec does it, but feel they attain perfection if they do it. They believe the Command from God not to kill. They believe God is true justice. But then they think that God demands the death/murder of His innocent Son for...

    what does it mean to be free?

    I suppose people can come up with a variety of thoughts about what it means to be free in many different situations. I think ultimately the words of Jesus refer to the most important freedom of all because it involves eternal freedom. Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever...

    Who imprisoned us?

    Fascinating. Any evidence for that? (Citing more Bible passages won't help. They are claims, not evidence.)

    Who imprisoned us?

    I agree that it is not "who" but "what." The "what" is "sin." Compare: Romans 5:21; 6:6; John 8:34; James 1:15.

    All Have Sinned

    Not only it is revealed in the scriptures, which claim to be the words of God the Creator... “that all have sinned”, but Jesus also stated that, “one who commits sin is a slave to sin” ( John 8:34). I wonder why people prefer to remain in ignorance, rather than listen to their Creator’s...

    Your sun shall no more go down. Is it because you will be awfully rich?

    I more or less agree. But what about the reference to the Black Sea? What is it?

    Your sun shall no more go down. Is it because you will be awfully rich?

    Easy way to understand that the sun won't be your light nor the moon is because as you can see in the first verse God Himself promises to arise upon them like the sun Himself. So God will be the Light of the heavenly Jerusalem and is so now (spiritually speaking). Therefore they have no need of...

    Kanye West's "Christian" - "Sunday Service" - Jesus is King Album, Chick Fil-A & the Real Lord's Day

    Further more Isaiah 58, it speaks of "break every yoke": Is there not the song, Would you be free from the Burden of Sin [1 John 3:4]? This was why there was to be no Burdens borne upon the 7th Day Sabbath day of God, for the Day is the Sign of freedom from the burden of Sin! And it came to...

    The Lord's Day, is it really Sunday?

    Yeah, this is the problem. I quoted the scripture, and you simply choose to think otherwise than what it plainly said. The "burden", and "bondage" is sin. There are two yokes, the Yoke of Jesus Christ, and His ways, or the yoke of the devil, and his. Those which laboured, laboured under the...

    Were Adam and Eve real people?

    Adam and Eve in Paradise is literal. It is not allegorical or symbolic The Book of Genesis does not mention it was an apple - it was the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil. However, apple is mentioned first in: Deuteronomy 32:10 New International Version (NIV) In a desert land he...

    The Gospel of John Claims that Jesus is God

    A) Hi Tigger2 1) GRAMMATICAL RULES VERSUS TRANSLATOR BIAS I very much agree with you that a translator will use their own personal context which affects their translation. This is a point @Oeste makes, (though it works against the trinitarian theology as much as it does for it). An...

    The Gospel of John Claims that Jesus is God

    Maybe I was unclear (a common problem these days). I was specifically referring to the exceptions to clear article use: especially those 'prepositional' examples which cause irregular article use or nonuse. These exceptions could also include abstract nouns, personal names, etc. We can see...

    Everyone Who Claims Homosexuality is a Sin is Bisexual

    Actually no, sin is defined in God's Word as breaking God's Commandments and not believing and following God's Word *1 John 3:4; Romans 14:23. Sin does involve choice but when we are all sinners and have a sinful nature all we choose without salvation is sin. Salvation is from sin where God...

    Love your neighborhood Jew as yourself

    When I studied Christianity, Christians were defined by their belief/faith/profession that Jesus is the Messiah, that he died for everyone's sins, and that he rose from the dead. A fuller expression of this is the Nicene Creed, although modern Evangelicals are less educated in this. However...
