Is the blood of Jesus not wine? Why did they make us drink it at church then?oracle said:to shake off the wine that many are drunk with, .
No, I'm using figurative language. In other words its refering to it as being intoxicated or drunk, I'm not talking about Jesus blood, I quoted from a non-canonical gospel. You're misinterpreting the context.SoulTYPE01 said:Is the blood of Jesus not wine? Why did they make us drink it at church then?
you have taken it out of context and changed the interpretation of its meaning. I am not refering to wine as christs blood here.oracle said:And when you decide to overcome your own ego, to be reborn in Spirit, to shake off the wine that many are drunk with, when you take off the outer garment (the flesh) and trample over it
jewscout said:This is how i look at it,
In the Jewish faith The satan (not Satan, it's a job title not his name, like being The accountant) is there to test us. He tempts us so that we may try to become closer to G-d. He doesn't want us to fail he wants us to succeed because he is the stone upon which we are ground to refine ourselves spiritually. It is through his temptations that we become closer to G-d. He creates the ladder that we climb to get closer to G-d. It doesn't matter how far along you are to the top, just that the direction you keep moving is always foward, not backward.
And it is said that when The satan is relieved and taken away that the world will weep because we will never be able to get closer to G-d than we will be at that point.
It's not up to Him....it's up to you!SoulTYPE01 said:But I went through Baptism/Communion/Confirmation all in my youger years. But that is not the path I chose to take, then AND now. So does God want me to return to his ways? Or merely let me wander?
It is my choice which road I take, yes. But God's preference would be direct to him. Same goes for Satan.Hope said:It's not up to Him....it's up to you!
