    It was hitler who persecuted the Jews because they (acccording to the flesh) will always be superior to all races because they brought forth the MESSIAH ( from Judah) through the prophets. It took a whole race distinct from all others to bring the MESSIAH into the world. And the tribe of Judah which is (praise) not the Law such as Levi which keepeth the oracles and all the law. Judah is praise the Lord tribe, for the Lion (Christ) came from the exclusiveness of this tribe by the Law or the prophets. No other race of people will ever!!!! bring such a great gift to the inhabitants of the world. For this purpose I condemn all people who ever persecuted them. This spirit came not from the apostles neither KIng Jesus but is anti-christ. Paul did not Hate the Jews of his generation neither any other his harsh speeches were against them who opposed him even as he opposed Stephen whose blood he shed toghether with all them that heard him that day. Paul's warnings was for them who did not see the Romans coming to destroy the Temple even as Jesus said and warned.

    Neither Hitler nor any nationalist will ever acheive what the Jews have done. This include Americans. From now on I will spell those "christians" who kill with a k like kristian. So that the difference can be seen. Maybe the ku klux klan was trying to tell us something (kill kill kill) with the flaming cross as it's symbol. Which also is the mark of the beast. Didn't Constatine use the Sign of the cross to kill. Isn't there a distinct difference between the christians who were the apostles fruits (like the apostles they lay down their life) the Kristians after Konstatine killed all that opposed Kristianity and they received the mark of the beast in their right hand even as they do to this day.
    Now I'm glad that I have none of the traditions of them who lived in the dark ages for in them is no light. Their darkness is known in all the world today.
    Commandment number two: :tsk: Thou shall not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath,or that is in the water under the earth: thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: [he says you hate him if you do] read the Exodus 20:4-6
    I have no greater desire than to have all nations come to the knowledge of the truth. And worship together at the coming of the Lord who is loking for a church with out spot or wrinkle.
    The meek shall inherit the earth.Have you read Isaiah 25 yet. It's coming into all the earth till all be consumed with the Knowledge of the Lord, even as the waters cover the sea. And all false gods will undone.

    There are many belifes and to say that I am a choosen one or someone speacial because of what I believe in would be prideful and that is a sin. If our belifes are not the same hey who am I to tell you yours are not right.? I know what I believe and I stand by it , but
    I will not put down others for there belifes or even if they believe in nothing at all. Everyone has a choice and each will make his or her own.:)

    There are no "chosen ones", only good choosers.

    Maybe each person has to feel he/she is chosen so that person will find the Divine within. Feeling you are chosen causes you to deal with ego. When you have dealt with ego you then find the Divine within.

    For YOU behold his calling of YOU, brothers, that not many wise in a fleshly way were called, not many powerful, not many of noble birth; but God chose the foolish things of the world, that he might put the wise men to shame; and God chose the weak things of the world, that he might put the strong things to shame; and God chose the ignoble things of the world and the things looked down upon, the things that are not, that he might bring to nothing the things that are, in order that no flesh might boast in the sight of God. But it is due to him that YOU are in union with Christ Jesus, who has become to us wisdom from God, also righteousness and sanctification and release by ransom; that it may be just as it is written: "He that boasts, let him boast in Jehovah.(1 corinthians 1; 26-31)

    Be known to you that the book you quote, while very effective in spreading the word of our Lord, is also mistranslated many times and subject to the viewpoint of the translater. And has been translated through several different languages. Believe no man's interpretation of the word of God, but seek the Truth within your heart. (you know this already:D ) But what I was going to say was what if the Trinity you speak of is a false one. Interpreted by a people who believed women were inferior in every way, lower even then the herd in the field. Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, are from a patriarchal point of view, and I have come to believe that the Divine Trinity is Father/Mother/Child.

    PS Master Vigil, we are all co-creators in this world. And to think oneself as better than another would be walking the path of Lucifer, who was cast out of Heaven for letting his head get bigger than his heart.

    Enhanced Spirit - I was wondering when someone would bring that up. It is true that the bible was written in an entirely different ancient language and has been translated and interpreted into several versions over Christian history. This is exactly why I had asked for a sign from Dr. Khan's own heart and mind. However it seems that whenever I say something he only brushes off my comments as trivial. I hope he, along with some others, sees what you have said and think of their own pride.

    Also, kudos to you for acknowledging female as an intregal part of the Divine. There is a balance that must be acknowledged and respected. Thank you.

    I've tried to do some research in referance to the trinity. I've tried to find any hidden symbolical patturns within the Bible, however this is merely speculation as I haven't proved it yet.

    Well I'm sure that preacher believed what he was saying with all his heart. I think it is just not right to say "we are the chosen." If one does good things for the love of God, that is beautiful. If we help each other because it is the right thing to do, that act should be sufficient unto itself. God must be shaking his virtual head in dismay at all of the religions who use His name in such a way. We can't all be right, could we all be wrong?

    On a lighter note, this thread put me in mind of a song...

    Oh Lord it's hard to be humble
    When you're perfect in every way
    I can't wait to look in the mirror
    'Cause I get better lookin each day
    To know me is to love me
    I must be a hell of a man
    Oh Lord it's hard to be humble
    But I'm doin' the best that I can
