Re: Please Introduce Yourself Here

Gman, That's very funny how similar our beginnings are. I always had a particular love for the Jewish people and for the Jewish faith, and as I started to grow and learn more about the Bible and about Moshiach, I felt like the Hebrew-ness of Him and of our faith as a whole was being ignored and und...

Re: Confessing/confiding a fault (James 5:16, Galations 6:1)

Brad, I wasn't referring to "spiritual" in a theological sense (e.g., spiritual v. carnal), but spiritual in a philosophical (e.g., immaterial v. material). Your mind is obviously not a material thing any more than your soul is. Yet both are necessarily (or, in strict philosophical terms, essential...

Re: Confessing/confiding a fault (James 5:16, Galations 6:1)

Lover 137 says, Interesting verses. So, you predict that I am going to be worse, that other seven more wicked spirits will come into me? How can you know that? It does not have to be true at all. Btw, do you think that this also can happen to you? And do you think that everybody who was down and th...

Re: The Sabbath, to keep or not to keep....

Be more fun to have an all out slam fest, but since you asked, well....ok. Let's take the context of Romans 7:7. I don't see in any way how one would promote this verse in any sense of keeping a 7th day Sabbath. First, the Law was given to Israel. Specifically, the Sabbath wasn't a merely day of wo...

Re: The Sabbath, to keep or not to keep....

Through Christ who fulfilled the law for me (Matthew 5:17), I keep the sabbath everyday... For in Christ everyday is a sabbath (Romans 14:5), and everyday is a day of rest (Hebrews 4:11).. Christ finished (John 19:30), fulfilled, consummated everything depicted, foreshadowed, blue printed in the old...

Re: The Sabbath, to keep or not to keep....

Everyday is a sabbath to those of us who have entered into HIS rest... - Romans 14:5 - One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind. - Hebrews 4:11 - Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall aft...

Re: Confessing/confiding a fault (James 5:16, Galations 6:1)

Bradigan, A few things to add to some of the other counsel you've received, much of which is good I believe. Going back to your original post, you appear to believe that any symptoms you might have with regard to depression are the result of struggling with sexual temptation. You might be right. I ...

Re: Confessing/confiding a fault (James 5:16, Galations 6:1)

Brad, First just a bit about me so you know where I'm coming from. I'm a hospital chaplain so see a lot of "behind the scenes stuff" myself. I also teach courses in philosophy and theology at a local seminary and have been a committed Christian for well over twenty years. So let me address two issu...

Thanks, Rick. Took the words out of my mouth. Must have been while you were kissing him :harp: 8-}2 :lol: Daniel, I think you may be confused. Just because all men in Australia kiss each other, that doesn't hold true for the rest of the world. :mrgreen: Well.. I know they hold hands in Saudi. :shak...
