    Bible Study The Milk Understanding

    Can you please prove your use of these metaphors for the process you claim they mean?

    The USA - home, but not home like it was

    Oh really? Who is the world's leading supplier of food? And most of what is shipped out isn't something that readily is table ready. We ship poultry products (including eggs) and beef, pork, sheep, and now goat. Some fish...but not excessive amounts. Corn products including corn syrup and...

    The USA - home, but not home like it was

    European food is really different. It is good and a lot of stuff is locally produced as well as grown. But America feeds 60% of the world population with those processed foods. Most of those fresh fruits and vegetables in our grocery stores isn't locally grown. They come from Mexico and...

    Churches in ID, WA and Oregon?

    It will likely be in the spring or summer before I go... Just interesting to me that the region I lived in for so many years has gone this direction and is now a mission field.

    Did Jesus not validate Book of Enoch?

    Josephus is interesting in that in "History of the Jews" book he refuses to quote scriptures (as that was the job of the Levites) but he does explain them to the Roman audience. Many Jews to this day consider him somewhat of a traitor...and I'm not exactly sure why. But I find a lot of good...

    Cool Runnings

    Another instance of NOT my idea of a good time.

    Churches in ID, WA and Oregon?

    Today we had a missionary from Portland OR in our Sunday School class telling us about life in Portland. He serves in a predominantly Indian section of the city where people are Hindus. He has had very little success as has his predecessors. Rents and COL is very high in the city. My...

    Cool Runnings

    Ever ridden a bobsled? There's a reason they wear crash helmets and goggles. Over 80 mph in an ice half tube... It's cold and huddling up to a bunch of guys wearing spandex is not my idea of a good time.

    Here's A Random Thought for You

    I have two pairs of work boots...one brown and one black. One time I put on one of each pair accidentally. (Same brand and model) The guys never did let me forget about it either.

    Did Jesus not validate Book of Enoch?

    This is why we call the BLEND of art and science as Hermeneutics. You can't use all science and no art nor vice versa. (But most people could use more science in their approach) Literalists are at an extreme disadvantage when deciphering scriptures...(which is the most used method) I'm...

    Bible Study The Holy Spirit

    I said that Paul explained how to live without the practices of the old testament Law...(Torah) but that he was explaining the Law as it pertains to daily life... subsequently it was all about heart condition and not outward practices that meant nothing. To take anything else out of what I...

    Did Jesus not validate Book of Enoch?

    I would tend to disagree with him on how he said that. It's close to the truth but still missing it. Hebrew is an idiomatic and metaphoric language...often with more than one meaning at a time. Greek tended to be less idiomatic and metaphoric but it still had them. But there were many...

    Bible Study The Holy Spirit

    Actually Paul explained Old Testament scriptures in his letters as how it applied to daily life in the time he lived in without the Law practices.

    Did Jesus not validate Book of Enoch?

    The book itself has an included preface written into the story line that explains how it is not scripture and is deliberately not scripture because it deliberately fails the tests of scripture (one of which being single author but the book claims multiple authors but the truth was single...

    Did Jesus not validate Book of Enoch?

    Ok... Ya got a point there...I agree But that doesn't erase my other points. Sola Scripture is a false set of rules for a discussion. Oral tradition and anthropology studies show clearly that Jude is a summation of Talmud and other religiously based stories that prove a set of lessons.
