Praise God! Hello brothers and sisters in Christ. I hope you are well.
I just saw this on TV last night(TBN) and this blew my mind. If you look up the original Hebrew meaning to the first genealogy in the bible found in Genesis 5 you'll find a awe inspiring message from God telling the end from the beginning.
Mahalalel The Blessed God
Jared Shall come down
Methuselah His death shall bring
Lamech The Despairing
Noah Rest, or comfort
The message is Man (is) appointed mortal sorrow; (but) the Blessed God shall come down teaching (that) His death shall bring (the) despairing rest. Genesis foretells of The Passion!
I do. It’s no metaphor, it’s our history and ancestry. I looked it up and it's all there, supernatural indeed. There is no way that the Jewish writers would have intentionally put that there. God is amazing, praise Him.
i dont want to be rude to the chriatians but i thought it was jesus's supposed ressurection that brought comfort not his death. From the gospel narration his crucifixion was a terrible and sad event only redeeemed by his apparent ressurection. also as everyone knows there is a lot lost in translation, i would think that structuring the senetence in biblical hebrew would make no sense at all, just some observations.
If you doubt the bible and it’s message, go back to the Greek. Compare the Dead Sea Scrolls, and all the ancient biblical texts today's bibles not some of the newer ones because they tend to paraphrase. but the NASB, KJV, ASV, LTV, NKJV. They were taken from the original and you'd be surprised how accurate those books are compared to the originals
Let's see proof the Jesus existed how about secular sources that might help you and others. Cornelius Tacitus, Lucian of Samosata Suetonius Pliny the Younger, Thallus and Phlegon Mara Bar-Serapion. Probably the most famous skeptic was Flavius Josephus a Jewish historian. All of these people were famed secular historians plus over 500 eyewitnesses(including His followers) who testified to the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
The word dinosaurs was created(for you the alphabet, which came from nothing exploded from nothing and by change the word just appeared) in 1841, but before that they were called dragons which appears in the bible several times, but besides that how about the kinds of dinosaurs.
tanniyn (dragon) =dinosaur
behemoth= brachiosaurus- Job 40:15-24
Leviathan=kronosaurus-Job chapter 41, Psalm 104:25, 26 and Isaiah 27:1
Since I answered your inquires please answer mine.
How can mutations (recombining of the genetic code) create any new, improved varieties? (Recombining English letters will never produce Chinese books.)
Natural selection only works with the genetic information available and tends only to keep a species stable. How would you explain the increasing complexity in the genetic code that must have occurred if evolution were true?
How would evolution explain mimicry? Did the plants and animals develop mimicry by chance, by their intelligent choice, or by design?
How did thought evolve?
How do you explain the immaterial like thought, love, mercy, guilt. These feelings would nature evolve by purely natural means. If you believe they did tell me when, where, WHY, and how?
Ok, that's your choice, but you can't deny He did fulfilled over 300 propheues written by Jews the very ones who cruified Him. And to say in was just chances: The odd of Him just fufilling 8 is 1 in 10 to the 17th power in other words Impossible.
I have the truth(God and The Bible), you have words. Is the best way to put it. The true atheist can’t really have truth because truth is immaterial. Most of your HP life consist of debating what you don't believe in. The fact that you can negate something means that something exists now whether He exist to you would put you in a better position to argue.
You know- this argument about whether or not- GOD is real. Isn't the argument you should be having.
The argument you should be having is whether or not the interpreted text was manipulated.
The bible is a history book and mythology book, combined into ONE book. Any acts consistent to make your mind wonder outside of reality was done to appear so. Many statements offered up were altered or changed.
An example: the bible goes back 6,000 years. science has proven the Earth and mankind has existed longer than 10,000+ years.
If you're going to alter your own reality by living your life by these words, don't you think it would be nice if they could actually be considered "REAL" facts.
My example above proves that mankind EXISTED long before 'religion' was ever conceived.
If you only knew how many assumptions are made before those “scientist” pick a date for the age of the earth you wouldn’t be so quick to believe what you see a TV. In order to make evolution seems the least bit plausible they age the earth 40 years every 20 minutes every year for the past 40 years. Great new research film called Darwin’s Dilemma I suggest you watch it. Young earth proof.
Taking the Bible literally can lead to all manner of problems.Interpretation is more a problem than an answer, especially with so many conflicting interpretations. That's why humility and restraint are so important....
