any belief system that claims women are inferior species, that your children should be taken outside and stoned to death and so on, it's a system that hates at least half of the world's population and isn't it interesting that the half it hates is the half that makes more humans (women)
enlil = moon god. extrapolate that. think think. use yer noggin
There is nothing to think about. This is simply an attempt to displace attributes of God the father, that we don't like, onto these lesser gods. Thus its simply an attempt to misrepresent God to construct something more palatable for todays world.
who tries to give the planet to jesus?
the owner, that's who.
jesus is enki-ea, redux
I have heard the Sea of Reeds theory often. I personally don't believe it for these two reasons:
1. The entire Egyptian army drowned trying to chase them. Obviously that could not have happened in shallow water.
2. The bottom of the Sea would be muck. But the Israelites walked through and their wagons/carts/etc all made it through as well. Opening dams and draining water does not account for them walking across dry ground.
I believe God used natural events to aid the Israelites. Obviously I don't have specific answers. The Bible says the parting of the Red Sea took all night long by a strong East wind. Exodus 14:21. One of the most intriguing theories I have read is that a very large or even super volcano eruption in the same world region could account for most of the plagues.
Jesus knew if He completed His mission, that the same person that gave it to satan would give it to him.
When Moses had defeated the king of Egypt, he completed the humiliation by stealing a truckload of gold and destroying the king and his army in an elaborate feat, before he fled the country in the dark of the night followed by hundreds of thousands Israeli runaways. So was it God who bred the frogs and locust, spread the pest, foresaw the darkness, mixed rust in the Nile and poisoned all the Egyptian firstborns, or is the truth more sinister— and human? I’ll let you chew on that a bit longer, for in this post I’ll explain exactly what happened when Moses &al walked across the Red Sea, walking on the sea bed with the water standing like walls to their left and right.
Nowhere in the text does it say ‘Red Sea’, it says ‘Sea of Reeds’, a play with words over the Egyptian name for ‘Paradise’: ‘The Field of Reeds’ a concept you find in the “Egyptian Book of the Dead” and elsewhere. Another thing you should know, is that the Egyptians built elaborate dams, dug out giant basins and used an intricate system of sluises to control irrigation and move water throughout the land and control the annual flooding of the Nile. They have found huge dams built by ancient Egyptians around the time of Moses. Take a look at en.wikipedia.org... for the remnants of one of them, built around 2650 BC. The Ankh cross was called the ‘Key of the Nile’ and they where actual keys used to open and close gates and sluises along the Nile, to fill and empty giant lakes and basins in intricate systems in order to make Egypt green and fertile, compared to today’s dry desert. Moses and his flock comes to one of these lake basins, whereupon Moses raises his hand and staff and the water parts both ways until the water stands like a wall to the left and right. In simple, Moses signals to the dam workers and they open and close the right sluises and close the gates to the left and right of Moses and his pack and they walk across the floor of the basin. When they are on the other side, Moses signals his insiders by the sluises by raising his staff again and they open the gates flooding the basin again, destroying the king and his army in the process. Now they could leave into the dead cold desert night, warmed by the unleavened bread reacting with the wine in their tummies raising the body temperature.
He didn't "steal a truckload of godl." The Egyptians voluntarily gave it to the Israelites hoping that their offering would make the plagues stop.
Also, the Israelites did not defeat the Egyptians, God did.
The Egyptians were held back by a pillar of fire from the sky and by the archangels themselves. If you are trying to say that Israelites did not actually cross through the seas which supernaturally parted when Moses was commanded to put his staff down on the shore, you are wrong, as the story explains much of the Egyptian army drowned when the water suddenly crashed back together and Pharoah was left on the shore in dismay. Another supernatural feat is that all of the Egyptian's firstborn were killed in one night. At least that's how the Bible story goes.
in fact, that's what egypt means, khem = ham.
atum was the egyptian god of creation and finisher of the world. it's actually a plural word, as is adam.
i don't think alchemy was originally black magic. i think it was originally medicine.
