Gentlemen please remember Ephesians 4:29 in your dialogue. "Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but ONLY such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear."
Imagine if a poll produced results saying only 5% of Christians think it is justifiable to kill in the name of Christianity. This would cause an outrage. How can these results be published and there be no outcry? If 5% of Muslims in America support Al-Qaeda and 27% refuse to answer the question, how is this not a problem that needs to be addressed? Take a look at the wording of the statistics at the end. It's interesting to see when words like "only" and "By six to one" are used. I am increasingly amazed at the "tolerance" of America that turns a blind eye to the obvious intolerance of radical Islam which gets away with murder. America has successfully been hypnotized into believing that "Islam is a peacful religion" when all evidence points to the contrary. "It's only a minority of extremists; this is not what Islam condones." Why doesn't the majority then speak out and defend itself against the radical extremists who dishonor Islam? They get angry over comic strips or against a papal misspeak, why not this? We know what the majority of Islam is concerned with, and it is not peace. Brothers and sisters let us not be deceived. Let us not be blind to what is really happening. Be aware of the media's carefully crafted words and subjective tolerance.
Neil, I have seen some of what Wiki says elsewhere as I was browsing around last night. I don't have the links with me at this location and I'm on a very slow connection. As stated in Wiki, an Archbishop and the Cardinal are responsible for the chapters. Interesting. As for the verses, also stated, the responsible one is Robert Estienne, aka Robert Stephens. Wiki says his son Robert held to the Catholic faith. Another source declares that Robert Stephens Sr. was a Catholic that supposedly turned Calvinist, but it's not known if this was before or after adding the verses which was done on some journey. I'm not finding much info about this man, especially how he determined the verses. Even if he was sound in the faith, what he did must be seriously questioned. On one hand, most Christians have no idea that chapters and verses were added by uninspired men having no authority from God to do such a thing, and on the other, the Christians that do know casually gloss over this like it‚Äôs no big deal because of all the ‚Äúbenefits.‚ÄĚ I‚Äôm becoming more convinced, especially from the Catholic involvement, that this is very serious regardless of how long ago the divisions were created and despite the alleged benefits. I believe the problem is much greater than we would tend to think.
Hey Neil, since your here, I'm having difficulty finding the history of the addition of chapters and verses. Who did it? Why? How was it accomplished? I believe this was first seen in the Geneva Bible, correct? Also, the paragraphs as noted in the KJB, those from the translated texts?
"And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?"
In essence, SW, and others, this is what you all are preaching.
If you don't know or refuse to acknowledge who the enemy is then you ain't fit for the kingdom of heaven.
You scripture abuse, SW, would also apply to Hitler and the like. You and the others in your camp evidently enjoy being comfortable in the system you bow down to. Blame it on God all you want, though I don't advise such action.
And the question again, do you believe in mind control?
Yes, I know it's a gambling site. And from what I could find that's the only site with this specific photo. I'm awaiting a response from eog as to where this photo was obtained. Everyone else is displaying the other photo of Cho with glasses that doesn't look like killer boy either.
There's already alot of strange things with this, as expected, that I won't go into now. What I would like for you all to do is examine the sole undated photo of Cho with his glasses, and then compare that to all the "killer manifesto" images and video. To me they don't even look alike. Moreover, the following site has a photo of Cho, supposedly, that looks different than the others.
I just seen this boy on state-run media and he was definitely under the influence of the devil's sorceries, government-endorsed drugs.
Prediction 1: In a few years there'll be a video, "What Really Happened at VT?"
Prediction 2: More "profiling" of "future terrorists" and innocent people being locked up and/or given "medication" against the will. Don't ever be shy now. Not running to the same excess of riot? Careful careful now.
Prediction 3: Gun control distraction.
Prediction 4: Americans will continue to run to the STATE for "peace and safety."
Great Sermon! so many great truths in this message and so many false teaching exposed. A shocking message to all who profess to know Jesus Christ whether they be saved or not. Praise God for this!! God gets all the glory for this!!! Also, did you realize he knew he wouldnt be asked back...through God and im sure experience Paul Washer knew how people would and do react to the truth especially here in America. My God is highly to be praised for this and i needed this, Amen!
I too am stunned at the desire to destroy such beauty. It's difficult to think that anyone could look into the face of such beauty and think it a "problem." God is gracious to give us Downs babies. They exemplify the unconditional love and unrestricted affection that all of us should admire. What barbarity. In the name of convenience we have achieved the unthinkable: nothing short of infanticide. God have mercy on us for being so silent as his beautiful roses are plucked.
‚ÄúNeil,‚ÄĚ I‚Äôm only curious what motivates your fallacy fetish that permeates many of your posts, not credentials as if trying to determine qualifications for your assignment. Any ‚Äúcredentials‚ÄĚ I have or don‚Äôt have are irrelevant to the information that has been requested of you. I need ‚Äúcredentials‚ÄĚ to ask for the sources of your statement? (Not asking anymore though, I‚Äėm content with your answer)
Off topic clarification: My last typed sentence at 1:46pm is actually part of the response at 1:34pm, thus making it one post or one message. Sermon Audio guy had rudely cut me off, but kindly allowed me to finish speaking via Daniel2.
‚Äú‚Ä¶but professed Christians who make wild claims.‚ÄĚ
You mean those who don‚Äôt believe what you do.
Sure, puff yourself up and ‚Äúrefute‚ÄĚ others while sliding in your own ‚Äúwild claims.‚ÄĚ
Readers consider, they‚Äôre not all obvious like Billy Graham and Rick Warren. Of course there can never be a confession by those wise, subtle agents of Rome, just keep in mind the Jesuit oaths when dealing with professed Christians wherever they may be.
I cannot say for sure that this individual or person know as ‚ÄúNeil‚ÄĚ is a dissembler or not, but he‚Äôs undoubtedly very suspicious, ‚Äúa person of interest‚ÄĚ if you will. Be careful.
Since I was a little late, I had read with interest at your latest attempt of practicing your hobby with Luke the physician, but since the thread seemed to be at an end, I figured to just let it go. (Though he sure could have used my assistance and encouragement) I do agree with Luke and it seems we have much in common, and I guess you can say we are related in Christ as it appears Luke believes the true gospel. From reading his past responses I gather he drops in for a short while then goes away for a time, kinda like doctor Wade.
I've been commenting and lurking on here longer than Luke so I'm familiar with your agenda and your stubbornness. I do wonder if you're an individual or possibly a person, a group of individuals, simply using the single name of Neil. Either way, it appears that "Neil" has an assignment.
Your statement to Vigilante was sarcastic and you know it. BTW, I think the issue is about the existence of HIV. For those that believe the virus is real, the other issue regards whether or not it causes "AIDS" or any other disease. Essentially, do germs/viruses/demons, whatever the latest terminology may be, cause disease.
But more importantly "fallacious" Neil, the readers are curious for the sources of your previous statement.
