I am not a leftist. I am a Torah-practicing follower of YHVH (God). I felt I had to mention this because what I want to talk about is the RFRA “victory” for Christians regarding their right not to provide a service to the LGBT community. I want to examine the Christians’ moral position on this issue and compare it to what the bible says to see if they have a biblical foundation. Continue Reading
What do we make of the following verses?
Is 45:7 I form the light, and create darkness; I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.
Amos 3:6 Shall the horn be blown in a city, and the people not tremble? Shall evil (rah) befall a city, and the Lord hath not done it?
Lam 3:38 Out of the mouth of the Most High proceedeth not evil (rah) and good?
These verses are incriminating aren’t they? They plainly state that He created darkness and evil yet we know there is no evil or darkness in Yahweh. So how do we reconcile the two? Continue Reading
Col 2:13,14 When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, 14 having canceled the written code, with its regulations that was against us and that stood opposed to us; he took it away, nailing it to the cross.
William Barrett, explains that one of the most fundamental differences between the Western, Hellenistic mind and the Hebrew mind is found in the area of knowing vs. doing. Says Barrett, “The distinction…arises from the difference between doing and knowing. The Hebrew is concerned with practice, the Greek with knowledge. Right conduct is the ultimate concern of the Hebrew, right thinking that of the Greek. Duty and strictness of conscience are the paramount things in life for the Hebrew; for the Greek, the spontaneous and luminous play of the intelligence. The Hebrew thus extols the moral virtues as the substance and meaning of life; the Greek subordinates them to the intellectual virtues…the contrast is between practice and theory, between the moral man and the theoretical or intellectual man.”
Be sure your sin will find you out. (Num 32:23)
Nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known. (Luke 8:17)
There is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known. (Luke 12:2)
That which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops. (Luke 23:3)
God knoweth your hearts. (Luke 16:15)
The Spirit searcheth all things. (1 Cor 2:10)
Ladies, has your husband ever told you that a woman showed an interest in him, perhaps even asked him out, but he refused (which is good), but did not mention that he was married? He reasons that he’s wearing his ring (also good) and so there was no need to say it? This probably makes sense and you probably thanked him for being honest and cooked him his favorite meal. I too would give you guys kudo’s for your honesty. That’s a good start, but there’s more…
