I have a whole bunch of them, so here I'm gonna say you're allowed to post as many as you like (from any Holy book, except the Satanic Bible, obviously) . Here's one of mine..."And I looked, and there was none to help; and I wondered that there was none to uphold: therefore mine own arm brought salvation unto me; and my fury, it upheld me." Isaiah 63:5
sorry, my bible is not handy and its been a while since i had stuff memorized. BUT, I love Song of Solomen..the whole thing...and any scripture relating to the fact that god can make good of any situation...(im not really stalking you, you just start ineresting threads)ill have to go get my bible so i can say wich scripture specifically..
all i can find is my dictionary...but i also love the descritpion of what a wife should be. proverbs i think...i may jsut be setting myself up for trouble here, but its just my opinion and Im allowed to have it..but that description is exactly what ive always wanted to be. a wife.
OH YEAH!! I love Ruth too!! and I love the scriptures my kids have been learning. I love hearing thier tiny little voices recite them with such conviction. Now, if only I could find a church that I liked...
Just one?, Ok. John 14:27 "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be fearful." There is a song called "A Blessing", that uses this verse.
My favorite...hmm. There are so many I love. I guess, right now, I would say Matthew 6:33, "Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you." Pretty much says it all.
John 6:54 Then Jesus said to them: Amen, amen I say unto you: Except you eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, you shall not have life in you. 55 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath everlasting life: and I will raise him up in the last day.
I think I may have to say simply: "God is Love." We blame God for bad things, but I believe God loves those more when they are in trouble. We are always in a battle between good and bad. If those living in the First Century believed that God is all love, we in the twenty-first century should also believe that God Is Love.
Isaiah 45:7 - 7I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.
Job 26:13 - 13 By his spirit he hath garnished the heavens; his hand hath formed the crooked serpent.
Gospel of Thomas 114: 1-3 (1) Simon Peter said to them: "Let Mary go away from us, for women are not worthy of life." (2) Jesus said: "Look, I will draw her in so as to make her male, so that she too may become a living male spirit, similar to you." (3) (But I say to you): "Every woman who makes herself male will enter the kingdom of heaven."
(Okay, I just like the last one because it's so lulzy.)
Well, I'm actually reading it like the Apollonian idea of perfection--the beginning of an androgynous sense of it... In that (and moms, don't hate me! Just theory from women's history, etc.) women's life was dominated by childbirth, etc. (Back then they barely made it to 30 and died giving birth a LOT.) So that literally, and physically, they didn't have time for enlightenment. So that these passages are actually seeking those 'rights' for women.
Just a thought--other than the obvious--that they were all a bunch of misogynists! ...Sandra's on to something, I think...But Sanctus seems to study this stuff, so I thought I'd ask.
To me it sounds like a verse that people would use to defend female to male sex changes.
"BUT IT'S IN DA BIBLE! D:" "IT'S IN THE SUPER SECRET SPECIAL BIBLE! D:"
I know I've read that certain sects of Gnosticism see women as evil, because according to them, it was a female that created the demiurge (architect) 'Yaldabaoth' (The Christian God of the Old Testament.)
So, Gnosticism, just like Christianity blames women for the downfall of everything. Women's only salvation is if they get sex changes.
Qur'an, Ch 2-THE COW, V 255: Allah. There is no god but He,-the Living, the Self-subsisting, Eternal. No slumber can seize Him nor sleep. His are all things in the heavens and on earth. Who is there can intercede in His presence except as He permitteth? He knoweth what (appeareth to His creatures as) before or after or behind them. Nor shall they compass aught of His knowledge except as He willeth. His Throne doth extend over the heavens and the earth, and He feeleth no fatigue in guarding and preserving them for He is the Most High, the Supreme (in glory).
Isaiah 2:2-3, And it shall come to pass in the last days that the mountain of the Lord's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exhalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. And many people shall go and say, come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
II Timothy 3:1-5,7 "But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God; holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth."
"For anyone who has watched television, read a newspaper, lost a retirement to corporate greed and corruption, or just walked outside their front door, it is obvious this prophecy has been fulfilled by our generation. Our leaders are often corrupt; our cities are filled with crime, brutality, and neon signs proclaiming our sinful, godless nature. The New Age Movement brings in increasing numbers of mystics who claim to be the enlightened ones. They are some of the most educated and influential people in our societies, and yet the most lacking in real truth." I found this and it seems to define the times.
