Yes I remember the town drunk would get drunk and check himself into jail to avoid his wife. Not a great role model for husband and wife for a family show I must say but way better than what is out today I guess.

Revelation 3:20 KJV 20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
I will take a stab at it.
1. What is the door? Mans Heart or Spirt 2. What is the knock? Repeated calls for salvation 3. Whose is the voice? The Holy Spirt 4. What does "come in to him" mean? As Christ came to Zaccheus 5. What does "sup with me" mean? Christ is the Bread of Life or Living Water and giver of the marraige feast.
If you answer all questions correctly, I will award you the theologian of the month.
John UK - I must say the line of questioning is quite silly. No I do not hear a audible voice with my ears but I do however hear from my Shepard though. The Holy Spirt of God does speak to me when I pray, read my bible, testify, sing etc.. Now this is not a audible voice but can be heard only thru having the Holy Spirt of God on the inside,ie being born again. I do talk to The Lord in prayer sometime audibly and sometime in my inside voice/mind. Now if you say that you do not or can not speak or hear The Lord thru prayer then I guess that is why you can not hear his voice. I must admit when I sin and do wrong my Sheperd thru the Holy Spirt makes known to me that I messed up by conviction for doing wrong. Now he did not speak audibly but I did hear him speak to me thru his Holy Spirt bearing witness with my spirt.
I interpret scripture in the context of the chapter or chapters surrounding the verse. So I assume we understand The Lord is drawing a narrative/picture to something these folks can understand. As most knew what a job of a Shepard entailed. The sheep knew their shepherd and know his voice when he spoke. The Sheep looked to the shepherd for daily care and provisions, they knew if they followed him they would be taken care of and protected.

John 10:27-29 KJV 27 My sheep **hear my voice**, and I know them, and they follow me: 28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. 29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.
Sieriously some of you are questioning what these verses mean? Granted when I was lost I would not have been able to tell you but the Holy Spirt of God guides me in all truth. This is basic 101 verse for a born again believer and is very clear in what it states. Am I missing something in this conversation?
Infant baptism and baptism without salvation has sent a many of people to hell. Ye must be born again, faith in Christ and him alone. Baptism does not save anyone, it's something that comes after salvation thru being obedient to Gods word.
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness. (2 Timothy 2:15, 16 KJV)
They that tarry long at the wine; they that go to seek mixed wine. Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his colour in the cup, when it moveth itself aright. At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder. Thine eyes shall behold strange women, and thine heart shall utter perverse things. Yea, thou shalt be as he that lieth down in the midst of the sea, or as he that lieth upon the top of a mast. They have stricken me, shalt thou say, and I was not sick; they have beaten me, and I felt it not: when shall I awake? I will seek it yet again. (Proverbs 23:30-35 KJV)
You can not deny it is in the word of God. Thank God for the Blood of Christ. I am remarried, I was gloriously saved when going thru my divorce, I had to get really low before God could do anything with me. I remarried 5 years later to my wife that God sent me . God knew I needed a good help meet as I had two children I was raising on my own. I am glad my sins gone. God remembers them no more. Let me repeat that he Remembers them no more, their far as the east is from the west, behind his back and in the depths of the sea, their gone!!!
I remember a recent news article somewhere where someone had done some research into the sodomites claims that they were born that way...
They found one set (possibly more) of identical twins where one of the twins identified as gay and the other did not.... They both have the same identical dna so if the gays claim were true...they would have to both be gay or both be straight...not one straight and the other gay.
People who engage in homosexual acts and lifestyles were not born gay. Instead they should be told the clear biblical view that they were born a sinner, prone to sinning. As we all are, since the fall...
John Y is certainly taking the Romanist view on this.
It would be impossible to create an image of God the Father as He is Spirit and is infinite. How could fallen finite man even comprehend Him enough to create an image like Him.
No one here knows what Christ looks like. So to even have an image is wrong because if you do, wouldn't it be logical to assume that when you pray or think about Christ you would have that wrong image in your head.... Which is idolatry in the end.
There can be no legitimate reason to have an image of Christ. ( I mean an image of His face)
