  1. "Mark Them"

    Seems like I recall someone saying... I think that the shallow "drive-by" poster has already added his two-cents.  Shallow posters like that are simply desiring attention, as their responses are very limited in intellect and they never have any meaningful Original Post to offer.
  2. 10 Ideas for Enjoying God’s Word

    Will you please let us know...are you or are you not an agnostic? 
  3. Hebrews 6

    Wow.  
  4. Hebrews 6

    I must be on ignore...
  5. Gehazi was healed and restored?

    Yeah...it's easy to get them mixed up...real easy when it doesn't fit your story.   Is he saying that even the Bible has the names mixed up...that even though his version says Elisha, it actually means Elijah? It's rather easy to read the story of who the prophet was that dealt with Naaman's leprosy... Like I said earlier...pride trumps truth.
  6. Hebrews 6

    That, my friend, is why I don't really know what he's trying to say.
  7. Hebrews 6

    I don't really know what beameup was trying to say. I was just making a stab at what he provided. I could be wrong (again), but I think...and I stress THINK...that beameup falls into the camp that believes the book of Hebrews is for the tribulation period. Therefore, I really don't know what he's trying to say. If I'm wrong beameup, and you don't have me on ignore so that you can read this, I apologize.
  8. Gehazi was healed and restored?

    That nailed it!
  9. Hebrews 6

    I could be wrong, but it appears to me that beameup is saying that Acts 2 is directly related to Hebrews 6; therefore, those first believers (on whom the Holy Ghost sat in Acts 2) tasted the heavenly gift and tasted the powers of the world to come (according to his emphasis). Therefore, if any of those from Acts 2 fell away, it wasn't possible for them to be renewed unto repentance. And they were Hebrews.
  10. The Priesthood of New Testament Believers

    I've always believed the "they" in Revelation 14:12 is describing two separate groups of people... Here are they that keep... 1. the commandments of God (the first group being devout law-practicing Jews) (comma), and 2. the faith of Jesus (the second group being those who have placed their faith in Jesus Christ) Both groups are referred to as saints in scripture, and (in my understanding) those two groups are the only people who will refuse the mark. To me, it's made clear since only 1/3 of the world's Jews will survive until the end of the tribulation...and THEN they will be saved when Christ appears...yet many believers will die for and because of their faith during the tribulation. Many people use that verse to prove that salvation is obtained by works and faith during the tribulation; however, that's not what the verse is implying at all. The verse doesn't say, Here is the patience salvation of the saints. It is saying that those people will have the patience to not receive the mark of the beast as previous verses make clear. Not receiving the mark is proof of the believer's salvation from the one true God and proof of the devout Jews' devotion to not worshiping a false god. Not saying I'm right about my view, but that's how I see it. 
  11. The One, True Gospel & God's Saving Grace

    I could be wrong, but it seems as though there's a marked difference in the participation of the moderators. Also, I'm still flabbergasted as to why Critical Mass (who introduced himself as an agnostic) is arguing scripture. Has he renounced his agnosticism and is now saved?

    Pride trumps truth I guess.
  14. Does God allow alcohol?

    Well, when I first brought up the verse, all I did was post the verse by itself with nothing else; however, you refused to acknowledge what the verse plainly says. Therefore, I attempted to expound upon the verse for you. That was my only motivation. I have no irons in this fire myself.  What I do find interesting is that when someone explains something from scripture (that you do agree with) with exhaustive explanation of scripture and commentary, you "Like" it. Yet that too falls under your definition of man-made doctrine. Now, since you are also opposed to the drinking of alcohol and believe that the Bible warns against it, perhaps you can explain the verses from 1 Timothy that you quoted and gave commentary on. Ensure to explain where those verses allow for only the deacons who can control their use of it according to your own previous statements. Looks like all deacons can drink a little to me...whether they can control themselves or not.
  15. Does God allow alcohol?

    Wretched, can you honestly say that Proverbs 20:1 doesn't show that there's something inherently sinful with wine in and of itself? Look at the verse again... Proverbs 20:1 Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise. What is a mocker? Is it those who drink wine? No. Is it those who drink enough wine to get drunk? No. Is it those who can't control themselves with wine? No. What is a mocker according to that verse? Wine. Wine itself is a mocker. Is mocking sin? Seems like I recall some kids who mocked Elisha, and some two she-bears killed 42 of them because of their mocking. What does the word "mock" mean? Another word for mock is to scorn. Look through the Bible and see how it talks about scorners... Wine IS a mocker. ______________________________________________ Strong drink is raging. What is raging? Is it those who drink strong drink? No. Is it those who drink enough strong drink to get drunk? No. Is it those who can't control themselves with strong drink? No. What is raging according to that verse? Strong drink. Strong drink itself is raging. Is rage a sin? Seems like I recall the Bible saying, "Why do the heathen rage?" Raging is associated with being tumultuous, fighting, commotions, moaning, being loud, and acting without a level head. Look through the Bible and see how it talks about rage. Strong drink IS raging. _____________________________________________ and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise. Deceived by what? Wine and strong drink. Is deception sinful? Yes; it's lying. Does wine and strong drink deceive? Yes.
