  1. The book of Hebrews was written to (drum roll please) HEBREWS! Those who for generations had followed the laws and precepts of the Old Testament. For over a thousand years the Hebrews worshiped God according to these laws and precepts found in the OT, and God was pleased to give them His laws and precepts and expected them to follow them precisely, but now they are being told something completely new! The OT laws and precepts about the blood of bulls and goats covering sins is no longer in effect. It has been replaced with the perfect sacrifice of Jesus Christ. These Hebrews were having their goods plundered and were suffering simply because they were now Christians. Even the writer of Hebrews himself was in chains, so they figured hey we will simply return to our roots of Judaism, after all it worked for thousands of years and surely God will understand that since we are being persecuted He will allow us to revert to the way things used to be. NOT! Benji
  2. If Trump walked on water the liberal media's headlines would read Trump Can't Swim!
  3. Some churches teach that we are not totally depraved, that we retained some of God's goodness that He imputed to Adam and Eve prior to the fall and even though mankind fell, we didn't fall so low that all of His goodness in us was erased. We are basically good people with a few minor faults and all we need to do is "fan the flames in our souls" and God will be revived within us. They will also say "we are the captain's of our souls. If we want to get saved we can, or if we decide we don't want to get saved we will not." As for me, I will quote Al on the TV sitcom Home Improvement, "I don't think so Tim." Benji 🙂
  4. If Jesus isn't God then who is He? Is He another God who is not quite almighty, but perhaps just mighty? Isaiah 43:10 "You are my witnesses," declares the LORD, "and my servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe me and understand that I am He. Before me no god was formed, nor will there be one after me." Did God change His mind and decide that after Isaiah died He was going to create another God and call Him Jesus? If so where can I find this in scripture? If Jesus isn't God why is He called God in 32 New Testament verses? Why do we worship Jesus if He isn't God. We are strictly forbidden by God to worship any other god, yet Jesus was worshiped in the NT at least six times. Why did Thomas call Jesus God in John 20:28? Perhaps Thomas was mistaken? There is only one God and One Lord. Eph 4:5-6 "One Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all." Not two, just one. Benji
  5. I will chime in here. First lets find out how many Gods there are according to God's word, after all He should know! Keep in mind that God's word is the absolute truth. I will only quote one passage that states how many Gods there are to save space and time. Isaiah 43:10b "....I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me." So based on this there is only one God, not thousands like the Mormons teach or two like the JW's teach. Titus 2:13 "[We are] waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ." Not of our great God and of our great Savior Jesus Christ. Acts 5:3&4 "But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land? While it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God." Did the writer of Acts make a mistake here? First he said Ananias lied to the Holy Spirit but in the very next verse he said he lied to God. So who did Ananias lie to, God or the Holy Spirit? Both and at the same time. The Holy Spirit is God and God is the Holy Spirit. Benji
  6. I can't find any edit button. I'm guessing that after a set amount of time the author can no longer edit the post. Maybe the admin can do it for me? Benji
  7. Any or all. A simple phone call from someone could easily land one in federal prison, although just thinking about it now that we no longer have a Communist in the White House maybe some sanity might once again prevail. Benji
  8. These same guys would be the first to have you arrested if you damaged a bald eagle's egg. Their reasoning? Because if left alone it will soon be a bald eagle. They are blinded by Satan that a fetus if left alone will soon be a person. As Jesus said of people like this "ye are of your father the devil. He was a liar from the beginning." Benji
  9. The teacher announced to the class that they were going to learn a new word today, and the word was officiate. She asks if anyone can give her a sentence with the word officiate in it. Little Johnny raises his hand and says "my sister got sick from a fish she ate." benji
  10. I have found the Institute for Creation Research an excellent resourse for biblical answers to scientific questions. The evilutionists hate them so they must be good!!! Benji
  11. Do you know what a bad doctor and a guy with a short temper have in common? Neither one has any patience. Benji
  12. Yes I have heard of it but just in passing. Hopefully it will die a quick death. Benji
  13. Yup you read that right. It was in the newspaper last night. The cops arrested them for assault and battery. Benji
  14. A golf joke. It was a beautiful Saturday morning and two guys who were casual friends were playing a round of golf. As one of them was getting ready to tee off, a hearse and a number of cars appeared on a road that ran along one side of the course. One of the guys removed his hat stood at attention and held the hat over his heart until the last car passed by. The other guy said "that was VERY touching." The other guy said "thanks, she was a great wife, I'm gonna miss her." Benji
  15. Lets see. I have one KJV, one NLT, one NIV, one NASB, one Greek/English interlinear, one German (can't read it though!!!) and my wife has a copy of The Message. When studying I refer to the Blue Letter Bible website. It has lots and lots of good stuff, great commentators and about 20 different translations of the bible and an excellent search engine too.
