  1. Gotta watch that cereal 🥗 And then there's one of the interests of your namesake, Origen, "hermeneutics".
  2. Indeed. We have coins, and stamps, and a plethora of carvings and totems all with repesentations of tiki demons going on. No cause to stumble though.
  3. Thanks, William. Yes, I drifted away from regular posting on this site, but the occasional email notification comes through, and this one piqued my interest as I too dislike the pathetic, badly acted Christian-themed movies but enjoyed the movies you mentioned. Just last Sunday our ekklesia discussed Desmond Doss, Hacksaw Ridge, & the Medal of Honor with its pagan image and whether to accept such a thing. The days of the week derive from pagan sources and it would be absurd to prohibit the convention of their use, so the rule is to be in the world but not of the world.
  4. Desmond Doss, the reason for the movie and Medal of Honor recipient, was of 7th Day Adventist persuasion. Question: Does the fact that the actual said Medal of Honor has the image of the Greek pagan deity Minerva engraved on it present a problem for Christians on scriptural grounds?
  5. An exception would be the likes of John when writing under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit: 2Jn 1:1 (1) The elder unto the elect lady and her children, whom I love in the truth; and not I only, but also all they that have known the truth; 2Jn 1:13 (13) The children of thy elect sister greet thee. Amen.
  6. I can in light of these verses. I believe it is called having faith in Christ that He will keep His Word. Heb 10:22-23 (22) Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. (23) Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) Heb 10:35-39 (35) Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. (36) For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. (37) For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry. (38) Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. (39) But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.
  7. The prophecies may seem vague to some, but we can't blame God for that, nor for the ignorance of those who oppose Him. Mat 23:34-39 (34) Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them you shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall you scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city: (35) That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar. (36) Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation. (37) O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you that kill the prophets, and stone them which are sent unto you, how often would I have gathered your children together, even as a hen gathers her chickens under her wings, and you would not! (38) Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. (39) For I say unto you, You shall not see me henceforth, till you shall say, Blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord.
  8. Hi Andrew. According to your belief why was Jesus crucified?

    That'll come out one day and she'll tell him about her list. He will listen patiently and buy her flowers the next day.

    She dropped a bag of potatoes and one of them has blocked the exhaust, now she doesn't realise what's behind his preoccupation.

  13. So Paul got it wrong in this chapter, and it shouldn't be in the Bible??? Gal 3:1-29 (1) O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? (2) This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? (3) Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh? (4) Have ye suffered so many things in vain? if it be yet in vain. (5) He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? (6) Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness. (7) Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham. (8) And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed. (9) So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham. (10) For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them. (11) But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith. (12) And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them. (13) Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: (14) That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. (15) Brethren, I speak after the manner of men; Though it be but a man's covenant, yet if it be confirmed, no man disannulleth, or addeth thereto. (16) Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ. (17) And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect. (18) For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise. (19) Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator. (20) Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one. (21) Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law. (22) But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe. (23) But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. (24) Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. (25) But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. (26) For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. (27) For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. (28) There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. (29) And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.
