We can discuss that ad nauseum... but I find that it generally makes people unhappy. Can we agree to be fellow believers in Christ?


Of course. My only intention here was to answer Bible questions FROM the Bible. So you people that keep asking me to answer in my own words, please learn to read. My opinion is just as good as yours, so why even ask me? But the Bible's opinion is quite different...why do you think so many people are so "tore up" over this thread?

All the verses you you quoted I have read over 20 times already. I know exactly where they are as well. Here is some advise, don't get your life doctrine from the book of Matthew, Acts, or Hebrews.

You will just get all screwed up in Jewish tribulation doctrine that does not apply to Christians today.

Read Matthew chapter 5 through 7. How much of that do you think YOU are suppose to follow? How about Matthew chapter 24 and 25?

If you followed Jesus's teachings in these passages, you would end up in hell when you died just like the rich man in Luke 16.

You get your New Testament doctrine from Paul's letters. He is the apostle to YOU (gentiles) after all.

Once again, if you follow what Jesus said in these texts, you would have to chop your hands and feet off, pluck your eyes out and sell all you got. You would die lost on you way to hell.

Do you know why???!?!?! All these thing sound a lot like WORKS don't they? And every good Christian knows,

Ephesian 2:8-9
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast. "

Jesus was sent to the Jews my friend, and thus most of what the Gospels say....deal with the Jews. Not Christians. You must "rightly divide the word of God".

Isaiah 28:13
13 But the word of the LORD was unto them PRECEPT upon PRECEPT, PRECEPT upon PRECEPT; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken. "

2 TIMOTHY 2:15
"Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, RIGHTLY dividing the word of truth. "

Be careful in Matthew friend....

Ah I see. The teachings of Christ that came from his mouth before he was crucified will lead you to hell.

Okay then.

You are not the droid I am looking for.

ROMANS 9
13 As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I HATED.

MALACHI 1
2 I have loved you, saith the LORD. Yet ye say, Wherein hast thou loved us? Was not Esau Jacob's brother? saith the LORD: yet I loved Jacob,
3 And I HATED Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness.

So why does God hate Esau??????????? ↓↓↓↓

GENESIS 27:41
" And Esau HATED Jacob because of the blessing wherewith his father blessed him: and Esau said in his heart, The days of mourning for my father are at hand; then will I slay my brother Jacob.

Genesis 12:3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

Proverbs 6:16 These six things doth the LORD HATE: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
PSALM 26
5 I have HATED the congregation of evil doers; and will not sit with the wicked.

DEUTERONOMY 7:9-10 (goes along with it)
9 Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations;
10 And repayeth them that hate him to their face, to destroy them: he will not be slack to him that hateth him, he will repay him to his face.

Can't think of others, but I'll try to find you more than seven. Maybe this is all? I look some more.

First off, Romans, malichi,psalms and proverbs were not written about or in the words of christ, i regard them as stories and nothing more...

But if we must....

So why does God hate Esau...?

And Esau HATED Jacob because of the blessing wherewith his father blessed him: and Esau said in his heart, The days of mourning for my father are at hand; then will I slay my brother Jacob.

God didn't hate either of them, but hate was in Esau's heart "because of the blessing wherewith his father blessed him" I would have to read up on jacob, he probably had great possessions or a great love of God, for whatever reason Esau was jelous of Jacob...

Genesis 12:3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

This has no relevence in this discussion.... we move on...


Proverbs 6:16 These six things doth the LORD HATE: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
PSALM 26
5 I have HATED the congregation of evil doers; and will not sit with the wicked.


So you know the mind of God, but again from Psalms and proverbs.....stories of men, men that hated men! Outdated information to say the least... this is why i ask you to use your own words, when you speak from the heart everyone can see who you are....But when you hide behind your Book and its stories of men from milenia ago...you can get confused.

Again why i ask people to read Christs words before the rest of the bible.... Lets see the difference


27But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, 28Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you. 29And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloke forbid not to take thy coat also. 30Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again. 31And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise. 32For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them. 33And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same. 34And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again. 35But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil. 36Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful. 37Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven: 38Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.

This is the way, explained clearly for all to see.... Can you speak against these words?

Hooray! A star
But please do read the revelation stuff, it explains EXACTLY what the 144k people are. But if your not interested in that, I would have glazed over it too...

God really sounds just like us humans doesn't 'he'?

I mean, humans are petty, filled with Hatreds for many things that don't fit into their thinking.. and somehow, we BELIEVE 'God" does the same as us.

Isn't that a bit silly of us to Expect an Omnipotent Being to have any human Characteristics?

Lots of people can live their lives without any Hatred, and yet here is 'God' filled with Hatred for things we supposedly do... it makes no sense to me.

Sooo you understand that Jesus was not sent to the Gentiles then? And most of his teachings were for the Jews in the coming Tribulation? OR they could have applied while he was on earth IF the Jew accepted him as Messiah. Do you understand this, I'm serious, VERY few people do, which is why there are over 50 different Christian denominations.

Well, we were originally created in HIS IMAGE you know....but now we are a much lesser image made after Adam. So yeah, why wouldn't God have the same emotions as us? On a different scale of course.

Jesus was a mumza; he may had been legally the "social" son of Joseph but he was not the biological son of Joseph and thats the bottom line. You can fluff it up all you like but thats fact. Jesus did NOT decend from the House of David simply because he was not blood related. To the high priests of Jerusalem then and the rabbis of present times, they don't agree with you.

Now can someone tell me what Jesus did between the age of 13 and 30?

He was a carpenter before he started his ministry. This means he would have had to have been in a guild and would have travelled where ever the guild needed him to go, most likely the front lines of the Roman Empire as they were the dominant money machine at the time.

You don't just "Be" a carpenter. You have to be trained. In those days you received that training from guilds.

That is just logical speculation and is as worthy as anyone else's.

It does explain how he would have picked up the radical concepts that he was teaching though.

With Love,

Your Brother

So what you are saying is.....

those who have not sinned can cast the first stone....I don't think that applies to Mr KJV

I am most comfortable with my own beliefs; but this is all too confusing.

I'm sure what Jesus actually preached was nice and all but from what I'm reading here from Mr KJV, he is not exactly making me warm and furry inside.
