Re: Hosea 6:6 and Jesus

Here's a good video on sacrifice, and why God didn't desire meaningless sacrifice and what such was to represent. The sacrifice was really only meaningful, so far as the person's heart was in it, they understood the gravity of their sin, and placed faith in such institutions to make them right with...

Re: Hosea 6:6 and Jesus

I Forgot to mention that these is one place I ran into God the Happy torturer and delighter in inflicting of wrath. So, not to malign the Roman Catholic Church, but the truth is that they have in the past taught that God loves to see folks suffer to purify them and throws lightening bolts and smite...

Re: The Ten Commandments

The Ten Commandments were given to the Jews. Are Gentile Christians supposed to follow them? If so, why? Thanks. Answer: Given to the Jews... Why? God chose a people unto himself who would reveal who he is to the rest of the world as noted in Exodus 19:5,6 - Deut 10:15 -Isaiah 61:6... and they fail...

Re: John 20:28, My Lord and My God

Only a person ignoring or ignorant of many passages of Scripture, both OT and NT, would deny that Jesus was prophesied to be the Messiah, that He would be God, and that He claimed to be God, that His apostles considered Him to be God: http://www.godandscience.org/doctrine/was_jesus_god.html Good st...

John 20:28, My Lord and My God

John 20 in context: 19 In the evening of that first day of the week, the disciples were gathered together with the doors locked because of their fear of the Jews. Then Jesus came, stood among them, and said to them, “Peace to you!” 20 Having said this, He showed them His hands and His side. So the d...

Re: Age of Consent

I spend a great deal of time discussing Islam and Christianity with Muslims. The age of consent came up. I came to G&S for some input because I usually get good responses. The argument is that God did not specify the age of consent, and He didn't. In my view, God left it up to the parents to dec...
