    Network Cutting Ties With Sean Hannity Over Breach Of Contract?

    I like Shawn Hannity but I don't think he has thought this one through. With all the sexual misconduct in Washington, I don't believe they need any help or encouragement in the department of sex. Do you? Now, not only will we see their over grown ego and bloated heads seeking power we will have to look at their nasty crocth filled pants that will horrify ever woman in the work place. Hannity is now a big X mark for my interest in his self promoting and money Hungary gain. I didn't know that erectile dysfunction was caused from cancer (maybe a few cases but not the norm). I thought erectile dysfunction mainly was in OLD men that still wanted to function like they were 21 again. Hmmmmmm, I could be wrong but these are my thoughts. I guess Hannity and Dr Phil are concerned with their own future in this department. Yep, that's all Washington needs! More scary stuff and taxes for the American people. I'm sure this will be an additional benefit for every male government employee. Sick barb

    Where in the Bible does it say God the son?

    If we followed this translation rule consistently, we would need to translate all of these passages in this way (because all of these lack the article in front of them): John 1:1 as “a beginning,” rather than “the beginning.” John 1:4 as “a life,” rather than simply “life.” John 1:6 as “there came a man sent from a god.” John 1:18 as “No one has seen a god at any time.” Carson adds, “Even in this chapter, ‘you are the King of Israel’ (1:49) has no article before ‘King’ in the original (cf. also Jn. 8:39; 17:17; Rom. 14:17; Gal. 4:25; Rev. 1:20).”[4] Third, John most likely wrote it this way to show the diversity in the Godhead. He wanted to be clear that Jesus was God (in nature), but he was a separate person from God (in person). This grammatical construction brilliantly shows the unity of God (Jesus is God), while also preserving the diversity of God (Jesus is not the Father). Carson notes, “The effect of ordering the words this way is to emphasize ‘God’, as if John were saying, ‘and the word was God!’ In fact, if John had included the article, he would have been saying something quite untrue. He would have been so identifying the Word with God that no divine being could exist apart from the Word.”[5] Greek expert Daniel Wallace writes, Fourth, elsewhere, John uses the definite article to refer to Christ. If Jehovah’s witnesses are hanging their case on this weak grammatical argument, they will find themselves in trouble when we get to 20:28. Here, John uses the definite article to refer to Christ (ho theos), when he exclaims, “My Lord and my God!” Jehovah’s Witnesses dodge this biblical assertion of Jesus’ deity by arguing that this is similar to someone winning a car on The Price is Right and exclaiming, “Oh my God! Oh my God! Oh my God!” However, Jesus’ clear affirmation of Thomas’ belief surely invalidates this completely bizarre interpretation (20:29). It shouldn’t surprise us that Greek grammarians have viciously criticized the translators of the New World Translation for their poor scholarship. Cult expert Ron Rhodes writes, Due to these vicious critiques by NT scholars, the Watchtower has always protected the identity of its translators. They argue that they hide the identity of the translators in order to be humble and give the glory to God. Suspiciously, however, this anonymity has made it difficult to check the credentials of their “scholarly” translators. When Raymond Franz was disfellowshiped from the Jehovah’s Witnesses, he gave up the names of the translators: Nathan Knorr, Frederick Franz, Albert Schroeder, George Gangas, and Milton Henschel. Rhodes writes, “It quickly became apparent that the committee was completely unqualified for the task. Four of the five men in the committee had no Hebrew or Greek. The fifth—Frederick Franz—claimed to know Hebrew and Greek, but upon examination under oath in court of law in Edinburgh, Scotland, was found to fail a simple Hebrew test.”[8] For more on this subject, see our earlier article “Jehovah’s Witnesses.” [1] Carson, D.A. The Gospel According to John. Grand Rapids, MI: Inter-Varsity Press, 1991. 117. [2] Grammatically, the predicate noun is the noun that is equated with the subject by means of the verb “to be.” For example, “She is the woman.” She is the subject. Woman is the predicate nominative. In this passage, the predicate nominative is theos or “God.” [3] R. H.

    Where in the Bible does it say God the son?

    Then quit askinking the same questions that we have already answered. The only reason you don't want these things printed is because you have no answers for them. You remind me of the Pharisees that taught the Jewish people false doctrine..Jesus called them Vipers and sons of the devil. They were hell bound because of their false religion. You should take note! Read it, give me some answers. I haven't spammed anywhere near the mess you have posted from nwt and your watch tower so please refrain from telling me what I can and cannot post.. thank you

    Where in the Bible does it say God the son?

    Bot, this thread has 7 pages that have been filled with answers for you. You have been given Scripture to address each and every question you asked. The questions weren't answered with our own words but with God's very own authority to His very inspired word. You highly esteem God, why would you not see and hear His very truth and path that He has chosen to reveal to us the path to eternal life? If you believe God then one must surrender to His will and not our own or other mere man's. The Bible is His truth and that is where we/you can find the answers to your 54 questions. Why ask when the answers are just a glimpse away for you to behold.? If you really want to know then put down you nwt and watchtower and pick up the Bible.......we can't make you want to read and know the truth, that's on you. I feel we have adequately provided the seed now it's up to you and in God's hand. I also will be praying for ya. barb

  13. I just don't believe this. My church certainly doesn't feel this way, of course I belong to a very small church but I go to Bible studies on Wednesdays at the largest church here in town with a congregation of about 6500,(that's members) and they don't feel that way either. This very topic was discussed this past Wed. and all stood firm on his nomination and immediately voting him in. Once again we are faced with lies and more lies to come. The Dems are the most underhanded, power Hungary folks that have ever headed up our country. This has got to come to an end and we are the ones that can make this Republican across the board in Nov. We have just got to take this stand. barb

    Psalms 37:28 "The. Righteous shall inherit the land. And dwell in it forever". Who are the righteous? In the OT the righteous are those that believed and had faith in God. They were the ones that believed God would send His Messiah that He had promised. There was no peace on Earth for them so the OT Saints looked forward and hoped for a earthy paradise. They looked forward to a future restoration of the earth...The righteous today are those that have been redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ. Psalms 37:1-40 is all about the heritage of the righteous and the calamity of the wicked. We can't just pull one verse out of a whole chapter and decide that it's gonna mean a certain thing to us or add something to it that it doesn't say. Scripture must be read verse by verse to understand and realize its whole and true meaning. It was not necessary for you to tell me that I was raised wrong, I think I conveyed that to you. Only by God's touch can one become aware of their sinful way of living and our beliefs that we were raised with to be found wrong. That's why I can praise and glorify Him, He didn't leave me as I was raised and in the unbelief that would land me in hell.. Yes, God angels live righteous unto Him but they could or never will be able to forgive sin. None of them died for yours or my sin. JESUS did! When I say God can not look upon sin, I mean, God cannot look upon it with out a holy wrath and being a just God, sin must be punished. Jesus satisfied God's wrath by His righteous life while here on Earth. Sin has to be covered by a blood sacrifice, like when God covered Adam and Eve with the animal skin in Eden. God always demanded a sacrifice in the OT to cover sin but it had to be done over and over. When Jesus sacrifice Himself it was once and for all. God's wrath was finally satisfied. Here are several Scripture that will help in the 100%God and 100% man. I will only list them as I know you dislike printing of so much Scripture. It is up to you to read them. If you don't, then your question was only fruitless with no desire to know truth. Romans 9:5, Colossians 2:9-10, Titus 2:11-14, Romans 1:1-4, Psalms 49:7,. Galatians 4:4-5, and 1Peter 1:18-19 last but not least. Did Jesus talk to Himself. No He spoke and prayed to the the Holy Father. Like I said, Jesus emptied Himself that He may become exposed to and tempted by sin to show us how we should live that would be pleasing to God. He was sinless even to the point of death. He chose to do this for us and to satisfy our Heavenly Father. He imputed His righteousness to us. I know I've said this over and over. If you have no intentions in believing these things or turning to Jesus, why do you keep asking over and over again. Is it to show that you must be the one that is right in your belief? Is it to prove your right and we're wrong and you're smarter than us or is it to show us that your new world translation is right and God's inspired word is wrong and needs some help with the watchtowers translation. What is it bot? What have you accomplished?

    The one thing we must remember is:. When Jesus was here and walked among man, He emptied Himself in that He would experience the same trials and temptations as man but never falling to these things that we experience and do fall. He had to live a righteous life so He could give His righteousness to us. Impute His righteousness to us so God would charge us blameless. I can not stress enough that God is holy and can not look upon sin. Jesus lived that sinless life for us, for you and me. If He had not we would all be spending eternity in hell. On Earth Jesus was 100% God and 100% man. If He lived sinless then He had to be God come down to man. God Himself is the only one that could ever full fill His own standards, His own law. If Jesus was created like us then He would have never been able to full fill the righteousness that God demands. Why is this so hard to understand? Why must one continue to fight against GOD/JESUS and His word? I realize that beliefs have been ingrained into several here from childhood but our true source is the Holy Bible. I was raise to believe if you're good ( morally) you go to heaven, if you're bad (murder, etc.) then you go to hell. Thank God, He did a work in my heart and lead me to His truths. False religion and false beliefs lead straight to hell. barb
