    Lord we believe, help our unbelief. For you have given us all things that pertain to life and godliness.

    Yeah, when things go off the rails that far, it's hard to tell what to do.

    Hahaha! What happened? Your ignore list malfunctioning?

    God knows what you're smoking, dude.

    You'd better read the posts again, because you're making yourself look like fool too. So... yes... (you have) trouble with English.


    HEY... anyone out there care enough about De Maria to knock some sense into his head here?

    (Thought so.)

    Hm? Well, I've got a bit of respect for lightbearer. So, I'll go back and check it out.

    Let's look at your post, Y.

    You're talking about this verse.

    2 Corinthians 10:7 Do ye look on things after the outward appearance? if any man trust to himself that he is Christ's, let him of himself think this again, that, as he is Christ's, even so are we Christ's.

    Is that correct?

    You claim that it is wrongly interpreted because it has the 's.

You arrive at conclusions that could not possibly be derived from the initial language.
    Oh, ok. My bad.

    Nothing wrong with the possessive in that case. Although Lynne is right that we are Christ:

    1 Corinthians 6:17 But he who is united to the Lord becomes one spirit with him.

    Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me; and the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

    2 Corinthians 5:20 So we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We beseech you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.

    Romans 12:4-5
    For just as we have many members in one body and all the members do not have the same function, so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.

    Acts 26:14 And when we had all fallen to the ground, I heard a voice saying to me in the Hebrew language, ‘Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me? It hurts you to kick against the goads.’ 15 And I said, ‘Who are you, Lord?’ And the Lord said, ‘I am Jesus whom you are persecuting. 16 But rise and stand upon your feet; for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to appoint you to serve and bear witness to the things in which you have seen me and to those in which I will appear to you, 17 delivering you from the people and from the Gentiles—to whom I send you

    Saul was not persecuting Jesus, but the Church:

    1 Corinthians 15:9 For I am the least of the apostles, unfit to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.

    I for one believe every scripture quoted above.
    How about it jmldn 2, do you believe those words or are you a picky eater.

    Those words you posted were written by liars whereas the list of verses I posted
    were allegedly spoken by Yeshua-Jesus.

    This thread is not about whose post "trumps' another. It is about the subject in the OP.

    I see all of scripture as the Word of God.

    jmld2, all scripture is the word of God but what these eggheads are so gleefully trying to point out at your expense is the bibles we have are not 100% scripture. There are a few and relatively unimportant errors in all bibles. I say unimportant because the bible is very redundant as it teaches the same thing over and over and if an error creeps in one place it will be purged out in many other places. What these people don't want to talk about is the errors in all our heads far outweigh any errors in our bibles. By their pretense of superior knowledge they would like to think and cause you to think they have the truth and we don't. Nothing could be further from the truth.
    Sincerely, JimD

    Dear d,
    Actually, the parables about the "good seed", the word of the "kingdom" is kept hidden from the "wicked" (Mt 13 & Daniel 12:10 & Mt 13:13). It is the "tare seed"/gospel of the "false prophets" (Mt 7:15), which is cast together with the "good seed", which is followed by the "many" (Mt 7:13). The "good seed", the gospel of the "kingdom", which is not understood, is effectively nailed to the cross, and the false gospel of grace, is heralded as the saving grace of God, but which according to Yeshua, in Mt 7:13, leads to "destruction". But don't worry, not all is lost, while you still breath, you have a chance to repent.

    Everyone is entitled to their belief as to what the Word of God is. Taking the scriptures apart word for word is not my goal.
