    You mean who has the worst concept? Both equally hateful!
    After this, David subdued and humbled the Philistines by conquering Gath, their largest city.  David also conquered the land of Moab.  He made the people lie down on the ground in a row, and he measured them off in groups with a length of rope.  He measured off two groups to be executed for every one group to be spared.  The Moabites who were spared became David's servants and brought him tribute money.   (2 Samuel 8:1-2 NLT)



    Qur’an 4.89 They desire that you should disbelieve as they have disbelieved, so that you might be (all) alike; therefore take not from among them friends until they fly (their homes) in Allah’s way; but if they turn back, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them, and take not from among them a friend or a helper.

        I agree one should look for the good in these tomes. I did so many years ago, and took what I needed then. I will not be fed either book as the word of god. many who wrote what I am showing here were insane. Obviously, provably crazy! to tell people that every word in these books are the inspired word of god is also crazy.
        The bible and Quoran I read were not to be taken literally like people do here.
        Like all information the tomes are informative about mental processes that took place a long time ago, and it is easy to see that many things were understood, but more were not.
        As for "living it" There is not even one human who obeys the mosaic law for example, and the Ten commandments if read in their entirety are again psychologically naive. smile

            Exactly, and the conclusions that we arrive at are all different.
            Any book that you and I jointly read will produce an entirely unique form in each of our minds.
            If the book says it was a beautiful lake near the mountains, we each have a unique picture. We can educate ourselves to be able to share much of what is written, but it can never be the same.  smile We are indeed unique!

                    Mohit, perhaps we seek what you may call "Godliness" and I may call something else, but love is an interesting concept when applied.
                    I mean to say, if we understand that it is godly to kneel and speak as equals with your little loved ones, and nurture your mother and father, love and care for all the creatures and plants that we interact with, always stop and help those in need and honor life in these ways, I believe we are being hedonistic, selfish and correct! lol
                    I fully understand that I do these things for myself.
                    First we learn to love and respect ourself, then we have plenty of love inside, plenty to share. The sharing brings joy! I understand how love works, i live it daily!
                    You give it,you get it back many times, and if you don't it matters not.
                    love totally allows children to be heard, and heard as equals. This provides the real meaning of life, and the grounding of self awareness that is kind respectful of life and accurate, so it furthers the ability of the child to full consciousness with the capacity to consider enlarging it. smile

    If Abraham was dedicated enough to circumsize himself with a rock, there has to be a God who told him to do it. It pretty much seals the deal for me.

        Why not let the Rock of Jesus Christ circumcise your heart?  Romans 2:29 "But he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that which is of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the letter; and his praise is not from men, but from God."

                It got back to me from Las Vegas, a Mormon reader referred to you and Carrie Bradshaw's dialogue ~~ looks like you're not considered a devout Mormon in their book...maybe we're making progress :-)  You know orthodox Christianity would NEVER teach such a thing as to put Jesus as a brother of Lucifer.  This is simply a well-known fact that Mormons teach such things.  I can see that either you are like Peter, and deny your lord in times of trial, or you are truly finding the real God, who is Jesus Christ (Immanuel).

                  Niether would the LDs church teach that Jesus is brothers with lucifer. People (Like you) just use that to sensationalize. LDS doctrine does not subscribe to traditional creedal trinitarianism. That is, the LDS do not believe the extra-biblical doctrines which surround many Christians' ideas about God, such as expressed by the Nicene Creed. Specifically, the LDS do not accept the proposition that Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit are "of one substance (homoousios) with the Father," as the Nicene Creed declares.

                  Rather, LDS doctrine teaches that God the Father is physically and personally distinct from Jesus Christ, His Only Begotten Son. The Father is understood to be the literal father of His spirit children.

                  LDS believe that Jesus Christ's role is central to our Heavenly Father's plan. Christ is unique in several respects from all other spirit children of God:
                  Jesus was and is perfect
                  Jesus is God (See John 1:1-2, Hebrews 1:6, 1 Nephi 11:16–26, D&C 76:13).
                  Jesus is the Creator (See John 1:3, Hebrews 1:1–6, Mosiah 3:3, Helaman 14:12, Moses 2:1).
                  Jesus obeyed the Father in all things (See 3 Nephi 11:11).
                  Jesus was chosen and foreordained to be the Redeemer (See Isaiah 43:11, Mosiah 13:28–34, 3 Nephi 9:15, Moses 4:2).
                  Jesus is the Mediator between God and humanity (See John 14:6, 1 Timothy 2:5, Hebrews 8:5, 2 Nephi 2:28, D&C 76:69).
                  Jesus was "the Only Begotten"—only He, of all God's children, had a physical inheritance in His body from God the Father. All other mortals have two mortal parents, and Satan and his followers never receive physical bodies at all. (See John 1:14, John 3:16, John 14:3, Jacob 4:11, Alma 12:33–34).
                  God the Father also had many other spirit children, created in His image and that of His Only Begotten. These children include all humans born on the earth. Some of God's children rebelled against Him, and contested the choice of Jesus as Savior. (See D&C 76:25–27). The leader of these children was Lucifer, or Satan. Those spirit children of God who followed Satan in his rebellion against Christ are sometimes referred to as "demons," or "devils."

                    You said, "the LDS do not believe the extra-biblical doctrines which surround many Christians' ideas about God."  Do you not know that the Book of Mormon is extra-biblical?  Nothing I've stated to you about orthodox Christianity is extra-biblical.  I challenge you to prove your foundational doctrine using the Bible alone, for you will have much more respect from me or any orthodox Christian.

                    You said, "the LDS do not accept the proposition that Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit are "of one substance (homoousios) with the Father."  The Bible states that the Holy Spirit overshadowed Mary and she bagat the Son of God.  He is called the Son of God, so, since the Holy Spirit conceived Him and God is Spirit, the Holy Spirit must be God.  Do the math.  Jesus is called Immanuel (God with us) and Everlasting Father in the Bible.

                    You said, "His Only Begotten Son. The Father is understood to be the literal father of His spirit children."  God has one Son, Himself in the flesh through His Spirit (God is Spirit); then you go on to say the Father has other spirit children, indicating He has wives or had wives in Heaven.  This is not Biblical.  If Jesus is the ONLY BEGOTTEN, whether (in heaven, as Mormons teach) or on earth, that's what it means.  The ONLY BORN.

                    You then said, "God the Father also had many other spirit children, created in His image and that of His Only Begotten. These children include all humans born on the earth."  If these children include all humans born on the earth, He would have several "begotten" children, for this is what "begotten" means ~ BORN.

                    And, if you want to take it a step further, we are told to be "born of the Spirit", so if the Spirit is not God, we are then not to be "born of God".  They are one in the same.

                    You said, "LDS doctrine teaches that God the Father is physically and personally distinct from Jesus Christ."  Then, you say "Jesus is God (See John 1:1-2, Hebrews 1:6)".  Is that not contradicting yourself?

    The Book of Mormon is certainly extra biblical but definately not unscriptoral unlike the Nicean creed, the Athenasian creed, the apostles creed, Etc.
    You said that no orthadox christian would ever teach that Jesus is the brother of Satan, and niether do Mormons. We simply believe Christ's relationship with the father, whom he prayed to is a father son relationship. It can be difficult to wrap your brain around but I find it interesting that some of the earliest christians believed the same thing.

    We do know that Christian orthodoxy before Nicaea was not the Trinitarian creeds now popular:

    'Subordinationism', it is true, was pre-Nicean orthodoxy.
    ‘Subordinationism’ is a doctrine which means that Jesus and/or the Holy Ghost are ‘subordinate’ or ‘subject’ to God the Father. In subordinationism, Jesus must be a separate being from the Father, because you can’t be subject to yourself! This was the orthodox position before the Nicean council. Ideas that were once orthodox were later considered unacceptable after the councils altered and added to the doctrine.

    Writers who are usually reckoned orthodox but who lived a century or two centuries before the outbreak of the Arian Controversy, such as Irenaeus and Tertullian and Novatian and Justin Martyr, held some views which would later, in the fourth century, have been branded heretical...Irenaeus and Tertullian both believed that God had not always been a Trinity but had at some point put forth the Son and the Spirit so as to be distinct from him. Tertullian, borrowing from Stoicism, believed that God was material (though only of a very refined material, a kind of thinking gas), so that his statement that Father, Son and Spirit were 'of one substance', beautifully orthodox though it sounds, was of a corporeality which would have profoundly shocked Origen, Athanasius and the Cappadocian theologians, had they known of it.

      When God became a man, He did not cease to exist as the Almighty, omnipresent God (Spirit).  Jesus was made a "little lower than the angels" for He was made a man.  He is both Son of God and Son of Man in the person of Jesus Christ.  He is the express image of God.  This is why Jesus said the Father is in Him and He in the Father; that if we've seen Him, we've seen the Father.  He is the only image of the Father, for the Father is Spirit.  Likewise, as we do, He prayed to the Almighty Spirit as we do.  We could not pray directly to the Father in the Old Testament because we were not righteous.  It took His human, yet perfect, blood to be the atonement for our sins.  Once this happened, we can now, as Man, come directly to Him when we are saved by that blood.

    now you are taking literally the phrase "God is spirit" are we to say that god is only a spirit, or that he is only a fire, or that he is only light, or only life? no.Also, if God is a spirit and we have to worship him in spirit, do mortals have to leave our bodies to worship him?
    Thus I believe that man is also spirit and is, like God, housed in a physical body. We were, after all, created in the "image" of God.

      Yes, our spirit worships Him in spirit and truth.  God's Spirit dwells in us and seals us to Himself.  While we have a spirit, breathed into us by God Himself upon creation, we do not become gods, rather one with Him as His sons and daughters when we are "born again" (of the Spirit) through our salvation experience ~ the indwelling of His Holy Spirit.

                that is the way we interpert it. you just like to think otherwise to oversimplify and astonish others into believing that we venerate ourselves. It is a deeper understanding that those who overcome with faith will inherit a crown of rightousness, and become joint heirs with Christ. But if we are to inherit all that the father has just what does he have? hence he deligates to man the Priesthood, the authority to act in his name.

      Gal 5:6 “For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything, but faith working through love.”

      God is not concerned with the “profession of faith”, in that Mat 15: 8 states, “These people honor Me with their lips, but their hearts are far from Me.”

      Mat 15:19 “For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, slanders. These are the things which defile the man; but to eat with unwashed hands does not defile the man." Did you notice that the washing of hands, which is included in the Law of Moses, does not matter any longer?

      Notice what comes out of the heart: the breaking of the 10 commandments; however, Jesus said it's not by fleshly keeping of the commandments that matters, but keeping them in our hearts as well!  The ten commandments are summed up in two: Love the Lord thy God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength and Love your neighbor as yourself; for in doing so you have fulfilled the whole LAW.  The work of faith is love.  Faith without the work of faith being love is dead.  Check out 1 Cor 13 (entire chapter).

      Luke 16:16 “The Law and the Prophets were proclaimed until John; since that time the gospel of the kingdom of God has been preached, and everyone is forcing his way into it.”

      John 1:17 “For the Law was given through Moses; grace and truth were realized through Jesus Christ.”

      Eph 2:8-9 "For by grace are you saved through faith and that not of yourselves; it's the gift of God, not of works, lest any man should boast."

      Galatians 5:14, 18, 22-23 “For the whole Law is fulfilled in one word, in the statement, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” “But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law.” “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no Law.”

      Mormonism believes salvation comes after earning it through works; that is not what Orthodox Christianity believes, based on the Bible alone.  When a person is saved, the evidence of their salvation is bearing the fruit of the Spirit.  We don't get saved by performing certain acts or works, but rather allowing the Spirit to work through us because of our faith in Him.  We are as saved at the profession of faith (evidenced by a changed heart) as we will be after a lifetime.  Believers earn rewards for works that He does through us, and not for works done of ourselves.

      I have a full hub on this subject called "Will He Know You?", as there's so much to see!

        The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints believes the same thing about grace that the earliest Christians believed. Modern Protestant ideas are different from earlier teachings, which is fine, but it doesn't make Mormon ideas "false" if we agree with how the earliest followers of Jesus saw the matter.

        One Evangelical Christian author wrote of his sudden discovery that his previous beliefs about salvation were very different from those held by the early Christians:

        If there's any single doctrine that we would expect to find the faithful associates of the apostles teaching, it's the doctrine of salvation by faith alone. After all, that is the cornerstone doctrine of the Reformation. In fact, we frequently say that persons who don't hold to this doctrine aren't really Christians…
        Our problem is that Augustine, Luther, and other Western theologians have convinced us that there's an irreconcilable conflict between salvation based on grace and salvation conditioned on works or obedience. They have used a fallacious form of argumentation known as the "false dilemma," by asserting that there are only two possibilities regarding salvation: it's either (1) a gift from God or (2) it's something we earn by our works.
        The early Christians [and the Latter-day Saints!] would have replied that a gift is no less a gift simply because it's conditioned on obedience....
        The early Christians believed that salvation is a gift from God but that God gives His gift to whomever He chooses. And He chooses to give it to those who love and obey him.

        The Latter-day Saints are pleased to be in the company of the earliest Christians. And, the LDS cannot be excluded as Christians because they have not embraced the modified doctrines adopted later.

          Do they believe Messiah is the only mediator between God and man and that He is The Savior of all them that come to Him?

          Salvation is NOT...by faith alone....it is by grace alone, through faith and that not of ourselves.

            There's only one church founded on the Rock of Jesus Christ.  If the "Protestants" broke away from the Catholic church, it's because they went back to the original truths of the foundational ROCK of the Bible.  To say Protestants adopted different, later, modified teachings is false.  They got away from Catholicism's different, later, modified teachings.  Why offend each other?  If the seven churches in Revelation are all founded on the Rock of Jesus Christ, the Word of God, why do we slay one another with the "I'm older than you?".  This needs to stop.

            Now, when it comes to Mormonism, they were founded in the 1800's and if you dig into their roots of their leaders and the Book of Mormon, they follow a completely different God and Jesus than we do:  http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/False%20Religions/M

              And the LDS Church claims that the Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Churches and the Protestant Churches all modified or adopted later teachings not in keeping with the Gospel, and that it's the LDS Church that went back to or "restored" the "original truths" of the Gospel.

              I do think the whole back and forth about which denomination is closer to the Early Church needs to stop too, as it's only inevitable that when LDS and Protestants argue over that, some loudmouth, smartypants Catholic bookworm like me will be too tempted to chime in with, "Historically, liturgically, and theologically speaking, you're both wrong." wink

                1000+ year differences in foundational doctrine is a bit more obvious ~ as I said, the Catholic and Protestant churches have the same gospel foundation.  Mormons have a different gospel, intertwined with enough terminology, to appear to be of the light, but I will not believe it ~ no matter what.  I won't become a Catholic either, but because of the gospel, I do not call Catholicism a false religion.

                    He did have a Bible and faith, enough to pray to god, he saw a light, and in the midst of that light stood Jesus Christ even on the right hand of God, and they did in reality speak to him, and though he was hated and persicuted for it, yet it was true. The foundation of the Latter Day Saints is Jesus the Christ, the son of God, the only name by which men are saved in the kingdom of God. The Book of Mormon is the word of God, it is the stone cut out of the mountain without hands and it will roll forth untill the earth is filled with the lord's eternal message of salvation. We talk of christ, we preach of Christ, we prophecy of Christ, and we write according to his prophecies, so our children will know where to turn for a remission of their sins.
                    The Lord has bound himself by solemn covenant, no longer are the children of men left to wander throughout mortality without knowing the lord's eternal plan. Remember that these things are true, because the Lord God has revealed these truths to us.

            "Hinn agreed, "We do have much in common. The prophet Joseph Smith told his people that they would have to learn how to become god's themselves, the same as all the gods have done before. I tell those who come to my crusades the same thing. When one is born again by faith in Jesus, he is given a new spirit man that wasn't there before—a spirit man that is divine in nature and God-like. As children of God we too are gods here on earth. The Word has become flesh in me! ...I am a little god on earth! You are a little god on earth!"

    Praying to/for the dead is not the same as conversing with them.  Our Prayers should be to our god, not to the dead, that is true.  However, "the dead" may be working out their Penatence by "assisting" with our lives.  Yeshua HaMachiach is a Great Example of this!!!  Although, He is not working out His Penatence as He has nothing to Repent for...
    Even animals do not "mate" with the same sex and we are supposed to be the higher order in the animal kingdom!!!
    Scripture is to be "Engraved upon your heart" so that you LIVE it but don't go about regurgitating it... There is nothing worse than a radical religionist who only knows how to recite memorized verses.  Know what is in the Book you use for Spiritual Guidance and speak it in your own words, in respect to your own life... that is what Pentacost was all about!!!
    As far as Grandchildren, may God Bless and Protect them in their innocence.

    Judah's daughter is more of a liar than you are usmanali/whatever - although I do love to see two religionists getting it on, here is what the bible says about child molestation, rape and selling children for sex:

    If a man is caught in the act of raping a young woman who is not engaged, he must pay fifty pieces of silver to her father.  Then he must marry the young woman because he violated her, and he will never be allowed to divorce her.  Deuteronomy 22:28-29

    Anyone who is captured will be run through with a sword.  Their little children will be dashed to death right before their eyes.  Their homes will be sacked and their wives raped by the attacking hordes.  For I will stir up the Medes against Babylon, and no amount of silver or gold will buy them off.  The attacking armies will shoot down the young people with arrows.  They will have no mercy on helpless babies and will show no compassion for the children. Isaiah 13:15-18 NLT

    When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are.  If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again.  But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract with her.  And if the slave girl's owner arranges for her to marry his son, he may no longer treat her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter.  If he himself marries her and then takes another wife, he may not reduce her food or clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife.  If he fails in any of these three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment.   Exodus 21:7-11 NLT

    Judah's daughter is also going against the word of god by preaching. Women are forbidden from preaching.

    And you usmanali are a @#$%#&*&(*@)(*)

    Ignorant peasants the pair of you. And you think you are going to persuade anyone to join your cults? lol lol

      Mark, you are such an oppressive spirit.  First of all, you are quoting the Old Testament, which is the Covenant of sin and death.  When God prophesied what would happen as punishment, He is just.  The Old Covenant was the same as "an eye for an eye", for the evil practiced against His nations was then enforced upon the attackers.  The New Covenant is not this way.  I gave you a link to female apostles and prophetesses, so you cannot continue to bash women or shut them up, for we are not separated in the Lord from man, and it is by His Spirit we speak and preach.

    The English poet/painter/philosopher - William Blake - said "everything that lives is holey".
    Some of his contemporaries, particularly orthodox religious leaders, were a little miffed at some of his views as they tended to be contrary to the notion that there may be one religious point of view that was superior to all the others.
    Power bases, fortunes and self interest would all be shattered if it were put about that "everything that lives is holey".  Such notions would be totally outrageous.  Really, how could all the plebeians and peasants be compelled to do the tasks required of them - plow the fields, tend the factories, fight the wars, etc?

    Catholicism will win but only if it has time to prepare.  Time after time has shown that Catholics have been unstoppable when they know their enemies and have had time to develop counter-measures against them.

      nature = mother nature = great architect of the universe = great kind of israel = one eyed dajjal = antichrist = lucifer = satan

    Make Money. Now I know your understanding. I know why you believe in replacement theology.
    I know Bible well and I believe I do understand it. The Apocrypha Books are not significantly valuable except perhaps purgatory which will be in contrary of John 3:3. We do not need thicker Bible we need only to act on it.
    Why we have so much protestants? Because it is not the Church, but became religion. Whys second Commandment was removed? Idolatry is most common sin in today's religion.
    Then we do not eat Jesus, we eat Last Supper (communion) to remember to go together to get into the WORD - LOGOS - JESUS. Read the Bible well, please. smile

      Replacement theology is an incorrect term.  There is a seamless transition from the Old Testament to the New Testament.  You might want to read this, http://www.whymostfail.com/chosen.html

      John 3:3 does not even relate to purgatory, it is referring to the Sacrament of Baptism.  This web page on the Sacrament of Baptism lists many Bible verses about Baptism including why infants should be Baptized.  If you are interested in Purgatory this web page lists many Bible verses concerning Purgatory.

      No Commandments were removed.  Why do you mention idolatry.  Catholics and Lutherans seem to agree about the Ten Commandments.  See, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ten_Commandments

      Well Jesus did say to eat His Body and Blood to receive everlasting life and be raised up in the last day and those that don't won't as we see in John 6:54-55 (verses 53-54 in the KJB).  Yes Jesus introduced the Holy Eucharist at the last supper, "And whilst they were at supper, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and broke: and gave to his disciples, and said: Take ye, and eat. This is my body. 27 And taking the chalice, he gave thanks, and gave to them, saying: Drink ye all of this. 28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which shall be shed for many unto remission of sins" (Matthew 26:26-28).  It's not symbolic.  This web page lists many Bible verses that show His Real Presence in the Holy Eucharist.  Yes we need to act on the Bible.  Before you reply you may want to read all these Bible verses.  Let's try to get over the bickering please.

      God bless

        Mike all your comments you made I am well familiar. I am not Lutheran. Luther however did not finished reformation. He did not restore the Second Commandment. This is negative mark from me.
        In John 6 Lord is talking about His Word. The bread and wine represent His body and blood it is truth. But it not changes bread to body and blood. He is talking about the WORD all the time. You are only right if you pull the verses out of context. I do not try to criticize. It is only what bother me is that people do not like to listen especially religious. They are locked to man made doctrines.
        Then you like apocrypha. It is OK with me it is your choice. But the same time your church does not accept what is written in basic Bible.
        Do not sound I do not take communion. I just do not believe it is Jesus body and blood. It means we would sacrifice Jesus all over and over again. Remember Moses strike the rock twice? Jesus symbolizes the Rock because He is Rock. But He is not granite, really. Moses should to strike once and this is why he could not enter Promise Land. He made two errors. If you are priest then you have something to preach next Sunday and we both have something common.
        See mistakes without repentance make impact on people as a whole all of us Christians.
