I asked you why and still you haven't answered.
King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.) The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
So you can prove your point by using only non-Christianic examples?
Or you don't have a clue what you are talking about.
Once again,by common sense you mean imagination because there's nothing even implying the eye as a tool.
That's why it is called common sense....You are supposed to think it out for yourself without someone handing it to you on a silver platter....It has nothing to do with imagination...It has to do with using your brain, which very few religious people know how to do, because they can't take their 'Gods' out of the equation.
What does the 'third eye' do? Well, it allows you to perceive things in the physical realm that you couldn't ordinarily see. This is where you dreams take place at night, and how you see them. What are dreams? Messages from God. What is astral projection? It's a god-given ability. What else does the 'third eye' do? It produces Melatonin, which is what makes you sleepy at night, and affects your brain waves, to get you into a more meditative state; sleep. Now if meditation was such a bad thing, then why did God design our bodies that way? I don't know about you; but that sounds like a tool to me. But go ahead and keep thinking what you want. I didn't misquote anything, because the part of darkness is irrelevant. Obviously if it is a tool that can be used for good, it can be used for bad as well. How do you think the "Satanists" exert so much control over us? Because they can know things that we can't; especially if they keep us ignorant of it in the first place.
I won't keep ranting; but you are wrongity, wrong, wrong, trying to come to my thread and accuse me of purposely deceiving people...That's what religion does for you; it blinds you to people with different opinions than your own...
Like I've said before,if there was anything like you describe in NT then you wouldn't need to fool around with paintings etc. You needed something to make your claim look more legit so you added them. How's that for using common sense? Stereotyping religious people is a bit overdone and it's meant for people who can't form their own opinions. I can so spare me.
What you described might be a tool but what you described it's nowhere to be found in the NT. Half the sentence is "irrelevant"...? Now that's something! Well,good for Christians of ATS that have you telling them which parts of the Word they should keep and which ones not. About the satanists: They play in their home turf...for now. I'm sure you know this too so I'm not gonna elaborate.
"Remember him—before the silver cord is severed, or the golden bowl is broken; before the pitcher is shattered at the spring, or the wheel broken at the well, and the dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it." - Ecclesiastes 12:6-7
Woah there...! I was thinking to leave this thread but this made things interesting. I'm not accusing you,I'm stating the obvious which I backed up several times. This is what His Word does for people,it opens their eyes and they can see who's honest and who's not. Your own OP is proving me right. Am i wrong? change your OP and put this from RSV: 22The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is sound, your whole body will be full of light; 23but if your eye is not sound, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!
I didn't 'fool around' with paintings...If you don't like religious artwork that agrees with me, then that's your problem. I don't 'need' anything to make my claim legit, it's called supporting evidence. Ever heard of it? I don't know how that is for common sense. Seems way off the mark to me. I can't form my own opinion? Maybe you should take a look at this OP and what you are complaining about....I don't think you can form your own opinions...that's the problem.
Listen to me carefully, mkay? I do not care what you think is relevant to the bible or not. You can't just pick the NT and exclude everything else. If Christianity was just about the NT, they wouldn't have included the OT would they? They sure as hell didn't see fit to include the Books of Enoch or Yahweh did they? But I mean let's forget that little inconvenient point for you, shall we? Christians follow The Bible, and that is what I will use. You can like it, or you can leave this discussion. I care not.
The 'Eye' was mentioned in Matthew 6:22-23, and the silver cord of astral projection was already mentioned in the OT. The Gospel of Thomas, which once again, you can like it or leave, also mentions making the two become one. Isn't that the point of marriage now? And by irrelevant; I meant that it didn't need saying, because I presumed, capable thinking people, would obviously realize the reverse is true. But please tell me...what relevance does Matthew 6:23 hold to debunking the statement I made? Not a damn thing, because the only way you can distance yourself from that argument is by claiming, the eye is not a tool.
No, you haven't stated anything obvious. What you have done is used your prejudice to attempt and influence members of this forum. There is nothing close to 'stating the obvious', when what you are really trying to do is say, I'm a general of Satan's army because I don't agree with you. You are A) wrong, and B) I don't know if you have a single clue who or what Satan really is. You can see who is being honest and who isn't? Great, please do tell me how well you perform as a psychic circus act.

Do you know what 'sound' meant in those terms? Strong, solid, stout.
Which came first, the darkness or the light?
If you want to disagree with me, that's fine. But to beat around the bush, saying in round about ways, how I am deceiving and manipulating people on purpose, is not only wrong, it is deceptive in it's own. Just because someone disagree's with you doesn't mean they are being deceptive...It's called having an alternate opinion. Sheesh..
Also why are you trying to use the Bible to support your world system based on the mystery schools when the mystery schools are clearly outlined in the Bible as teachings of the fallen angels (Mystery Babylon)? The standard opinion of mystery school students is that Christianity is a perversion of their system. Most of the supporting interpretations from the OT are from that of Kaballah and the Talmud, both of which are remnants of Egyptian and Babylonian (Sumerian) mystery school teachings. The Torah is supposed to be held above both of those and it contradicts most of the teachings found in the prior two.
Supporting evidence which are not from the source of the religion we're talking about.
Should we start taking into account movies too? Of course not.
I was talking about people who adopt stereotypes,not the ones who make them.
So what Christ said is just my imagination?
The OT is included where? Christianity?
It is mentioned by some Christians,it can be read by Christians but not followed. That would go against their own religion.
No,Christians don't follow the bible,they follow Christ. I've said this over and over again.
That would go against their own religion.
The eye not only is not mentioned as a tool
Some translations say single and some others don't and by reading 22 and 23 together we see
it's not talking about what you want it to talk.
I did and you can't undone it no matter how hard you try.
Prejudice"- your opinion,it's not backed up by anything factual and if anything,in page 5 I gave you a chance to think again but you said that you have researched etc. So I even gave you the benefit of the doubt while I shouldn't.
When did I call you a "general of Satan's army"? More lies.
Common sense and observation.
You want a reply from Genesis or you're just fooling around as usual? I thought you know your OT.
"Beat around the bush"? I'm always going straight to the point. You said that before but I'm not talking about your opinions,I'm talking about what you posted and how you posted it
Honestly you are comparing the God of the Bible to a solar deity when the Bible itself calls Satan by the name of another solar deity Appolyon.
The Greek Ἄδωνις (Greek pronunciation: [ˈadɔːnis]), Adōnis was a borrowing from the Semitic word adon, "lord", which is related to Adonai, one of the names used to refer to the God (אֲדֹנָי) in the Hebrew Bible and still used in Judaism to the present day. Syrian Adonis is Gauas or Aos, to Egyptian Osiris, to the Semitic Tammuz and Baal Hadad, to the Etruscan Atunis and the Phrygian Attis, all of whom are deities of rebirth and vegetation.
the Bible itself calls Satan by the name of another solar deity Appolyon.
Again Mystery Babylon is identified in the Bible as a church which is against the true God of the Bible. By all symbols and rituals Roman Catholicism is Mithraism and was even founded by the head of a Mithraic Sun cult from the Sol Invictus branch, Constantine.
Most of the supporting interpretations from the OT are from that of Kaballah and the Talmud, both of which are remnants of Egyptian and Babylonian (Sumerian) mystery school teachings. The Torah is supposed to be held above both of those and it contradicts most of the teachings found in the prior two.
