I was answering on a post in Facebook on this subject, spelled out clearly what the intent of the law is, and what 'freedom of religion' means, (really, that religion is not just what one does in church or at home, but the entire life of the believer, which encompasses, or should, all aspects of a believer's life-and of course, I was told I was wrong.). And I was accused of being a bigot, a homophobe, hateful, etc. It really does no good to argue-no matter how one may say they love homosexuals, but it doesn't mean we have to agree with what they do, or support it, we will always be told that we really hate them. The lost have NO idea of what true biblical love and Christianty are. The best we can do it get folks saved, one soul at a time.
Downsides: bad backs. And it doesn't take anything to throw it out, it just...happens. I split wood with an axe, cut down brush with the same, haul hay, chase and wrassle 200 pound goats, no sweat. But wait, let me bend slightly to attach my trailer chain to my truck Aaaaaaand, there goes my back. I've done it taking the clothes out of my dryer, sitting in the restroom, takes nothing, literally. BUT, on the plus side, in 4 years I can order from the senior menu at Denny's.
Well, I know its only by God's good grace that my old truck is still running-I have needed a new transmission for at leat 6 months or more, but as I have npo other options at the moment, I have continued to run it, usually just to and from work, about 5 miles each way. I have to run it initially in second gear, (its automatic), until I hit about 37 mph, then I can shift to drive and it works okay, but anytime I go below 35, gotta go back to 2nd. Only recently I am finding that 2nd gear is starting to lag, so it may not continue much longer. I currently have two other vehicles being worked on, a Ranger and a Jeep, but the guy working on them is really dragging. Gonna have to beat that boy. But praise God He has kept the truck running as long as He has and I know He will provide.
Everything about modern culture and society is set up in such a way that its virtually impossible to pay people daily in a majority of jobs. Now, I'm not saying its right, just saying that its how it is and good luck trying to change it back. We know that society would get worse and worse, because wicked men are waxing worse and worse. A lot of what the Bible forbade in the Old testament is not done anymore, anywhere. But also remember, it was written FOR Israel, not for everyone, everywhere. Like the rest of the law of Moses. Is it a good principle? Of course it is, but its not a good society we live in, not a godly society, so we should not expect it to run like God demanded of Israel. I suppose if a church has the ability to have paid staff, they could pay daily if they chose-but even there, when you are dependent upon the money coming in one day, maybe two, per week, even then you need to work the pay according to when the money comes in. The OT biblical principle is based upon people who, as was said above, generally worked as day labour. It was to make clear that, whatever agreement was made by the one hiring, would be made good according to the agreement. If he hired them to be paid that day, they were to be paid that day; if he hired them with the understanding that they would be paid weekly, then he was to pay them weekly, not keep it extra time over the agreement.
Okay, where are we? Who is asking the next question? Seems to have gotten a bit confusing.
If I may add a rule, if Li Bai Jia doesn't mind, let's keep questions to where the answer is a clear Biblical fact, not speculation, ie, not, Who were the sons of God that married the daughters of men? because it will lead to speculation and argument. Clear facts. And since I'm not sure where we are, if I may, I will ask the next question and we can continue on. Ahem ahem.. What animal was used for the atonement sacrifice for Israel on the Day of Atonement?
Actually I believe Jesus was born around 5BC-primarily because, according to the current calendar, Herod the Great, who was the king that sought to kill Jesus, died in 4BC. Of course, because of a monk's mistake, we may never be exactly sure on any of those dates. So, if that's the case, then Jesus was actually born 5 years before Christ-HA! Then He would have died on about 29AD, I believe. But I honestly am not sure, haven't personally done that math.
Its supposed to be ancient dry blood. And it is said to have turned part liquid, so they are calling it a 'partial miracle'. I suspect it is a device that releases a small amount of water into the 'blood' so that it liquifies. A simple parlour trick, and of course, no one would ever be allowed to inspect it to see what it actually is.
Thats their story and they're sticking to it. its like how someone explains away 1-1/2 days being actually three nights and days, concerning Jesus dying on Friday and raising on Sunday and somehow that's three days and three nights. If the Bible had just said Three Days, then maybe the explanation of "any part of a day is considered a day", would make a little more sense. but when it says Thee Days and three nights" that's pretty specific. Or the days of creation not really meaning literal days, except that it specifies evening and mornings. Which is exactly what makes a Hebrew day. Too specific to mean anything but just what it says.
We have a station called Retro, and it has a lot of the old shows like Hogan's Heroes, Batman, the old Superman, even the late 70's, early 80's Dr. Who with Tom Baker, one of the best runs in many opinions. I think a lot of the stations I get are local Reno channels. I live about 60 miles away, but I bought an antenna and attached it to my old satellite dish and it boosts the power of the antenna. If you look online you can see how to do that.
Yeah, this is why I got rid of satellite and cable. Now I get about 16 local channels, with old movies and classic TV shows like Andy Griffith and Star Trek, original, 1966 Batman and 1970's Wonder Woman. And Soupy Sales-remember him? Much preferred over such drivel.
