    Did you actually read it, or did you make such an assumption based on the title?

    Incorrect! This is biology--factual, not opinion. For one, vertebrates and invertebrates are NOT species, but classifications within the animal kingdom.

    Noah must have brought 2 of every SPECIES.

    Consider that Noah brought two dogs... why, then, are there so many species of dog today, instead of two?

    Only the traits those two dogs carried would be seen today... however, dogs are too diverse for all genetic makeup to be drawn back to a single pair of dogs, unless you believe in evolution (which I'm assuming you don't. Besides, if you did, the time between the supposed world flood and now would not be sufficient enough to produce such genetic diversity from two individual "dogs")

    Thus, such such genetic diversity to exist today, Noah would have to bring two individuals of each species.

    Ooooh! Can I play? :)

    Sin is an offense against reason, truth, and right conscience; it is failure in genuine love for God and neighbor caused by a perverse attachment to certain goods. It wounds the nature of man and injures human solidarity. It has been defined as "an utterance, a deed, or a desire contrary to the eternal law."

    How's that grab ya?

    Why, then, would the Romans simply concede with the wishes of the Jews? Furthermore, crucifixion was not the only means of execution. Why would they choose crucifixion-- a punishment for sedition-- of all the punishments available to them? And, sure, it was against Jewish law to kill, but had they followed such a rule in the past? No; there were various Jewish rebellions in which many Romans were killed. If they were disrupted enough with Jesus, they would not hesitate to have him eliminated.

    Most Holy Mary Mother of God we honor and evoke your presence to ease the hearts and minds of all people. All attitudes and denominations who seek the brilliance of your miraculous visions. I ask Your intercession to the Father for all the people so that they will receive the unrelenting power of the Holy Spirit in their search for truth. Please guide us to that place where death is not an issue but only a new beginning . I Pray in your power and divine devotion that this is done for all the people and that is done quietly and without the need for retribution. Thank You Most Holy Mary Mother of God for Your Intercession . Amen...

    Finalfrogo, i See youtr POint about the Species and such. It is a good theory, but what i meant by Invertibrates and Vertebrates, was to make an assurption that he too diffrent types of each animal on the ark, not every spiecies, some anilmals died out as a result of not going on the ark.

    Now, Sin itself is an Archaic word, many dont take it seriously....Sin in my own words is, A trangression(breaking) of the law. God's Law that is.

    Our Beloved Holy Mother whose message comes with the Sun, for the Son, has impressed many wonderful messages on my heart. Our Beloved Holy Mother has impressed through the power of The Holy Spirit that you are truly a wonderful Man of God. I will pray for your strength as you continue this Holy Quest. You are one of five here now who Shine in the Brightest Rays Of Light. Some will question but through the Power Of The Holy Spirit be made aware ...She comes to intercede to her Son on our behalf and to advocate the forgiveness of others as the divine key we are to use to unlock the Mercy of Heaven. She is sent to remove all heresies. She is sent in the final days to ready the world for the Second Coming . It is near. If you pray to the East you will see... A prophecy made many centuries ago is about to become reality. Thank You... In the Spirit of Jesus Christ you are loved...

    "During this period, many men will abuse of the freedom of conscience conceded to them. It is of such men that Jude the Apostle spoke when he said: 'These men blaspheme whatever they do not understand; and they corrupt whatever they know naturally as irrational animals do... They will ridicule Christian simplicity; they will call it folly and nonsense, but they will have the highest regard for advanced knowledge, and for the skill by which the axioms of law, the precepts of morality, the Holy Canons and religious dogmas are clouded by senseless questions and elaborate arguments."​

    There are three threads that I have seen exactly the same of this as of yet, and may well be more. I have had all of my questions answered. Quite francly they did not impress me.

    The Man Jerrell is here to inform Mr. Maxist... His quest is noble... Are your criticisms just as noble ? Why does man complain about things that are not his way. Why does'nt man just move on and ask The Holy Spirit to impress him. I guarantee The Holy Spirit is quite impressive. Is man fearful perhaps. The Lord should be feared, but the fear does dissipate when He is obeyed out of Love. Interesting questions that perhaps there are no earthly answers to. Be Kind to your neighbor Mr . Maxist and if you are not impressed by the color of his house perhaps it is time to visit elsewhere. The answer lies in your own freedom of choice. If you are perplexed I know a visit to the prayer closet will ease your mind.

    I have a question for you Jerrell. Did God say the following:





    If God did not say that, then why is it in the Bible? If He did, why are you worshipping this psycho?

    Yes God did say that. God is a Powerful God and he demands obidence. Seeing that he is creator and all, he has the right to do so.

    But analize the Whole Context and see why he said this.

    Leveticus 24:13 tells us that God said this becuase he brought them out of the Land of Egypt. That was something. God sent ten plagues on the Egyptians, and killed alot of people to get the Hebrews out of Egypt. Now after he has brought them out, shall they turn their back on him? It's like this, Will you burst your butt raising your child, then pay one million dollars to get your child out of jail, and then your child goes right back to doing what he was before you saved him? To keep him striaght you got to ahve tough love. That is the kind of God, God is . He is a True Father, he has Tough Love.

    [FONT=Arial, Geneva, Helvetica]Pr 13:24 -He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes[/FONT]

    [FONT=Arial, Geneva, Helvetica]Heb 12:6 -For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.[/FONT]

    Chasteneth means [FONT=Arial, Helvetica]
    1. discipline, chastening, correction
      1. discipline, correction
      2. chastening
    I worhsip him becuase he is a Good God. YOu ought to Focus on his good also.

    1Peter 5: [FONT=Arial, Geneva, Helvetica]6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: 7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.[/FONT]

    [FONT=Arial, Geneva, Helvetica]Ga 3:14 -That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.[/FONT]

    God lvoes the World John 3:16

    And he loved you enough to reach out and try to save you

    [FONT=Arial, Geneva, Helvetica]Isa 49:6 - And he said, It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth[/FONT]

    [FONT=Arial, Geneva, Helvetica]Joh 8:12 - Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.[/FONT]


    God at times brings judgemnt. While Most times he brings promise. He loved you enough to send his son to die for you. That is reason enough to worship him.

    Jerrell Our Beloved Holy Mother has impressed upon my heart the following message for you... Be not tired nor afraid but rather be courages and unrelenting . Be forthright and clear . Be not weary and remember what was done to Jesus... "And they shall mock him, and shall spit upon him, and shall kill him; and the third day He Shall Rise Again." May all who read this be filled with joy and peace . May all who read this follow their hearts to a good and gentle place. And may all who read this be Blessed with the kindness and love of Jesus...

    "A great sign appeared in the sky, a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars..."
    Revelation 12:1


    "We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through. I do not think that wide circles of American society or wide circles of the Christian community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel versus the anti-Gospel."

    Pointing out the positives of one's religion and the idea that the deity you believe is good, is not proselytizing.
