    Happy Thanksgiving

    happy Thanksgiving b/a and all here at DV... thank you barb
  3. Thank you for your response and I agree about the LEFT as a whole in our nation or should I say the world. I suppose I should have made myself more clear as I was trying to express the attitudes of this board. The attitudes of the RIGHT are no less slanted or brought forth with disgust and venom than the left on this site. We use this board to Express our political views with little or no regard to others. We all have even reduced ourselves to name calling and belittling one that hasn't the same political affiliation as ours. I do agree that nation wide the LEFT pushes everything to the extreme but the RIGHT on this board does no less and even looks for ways to push, shove, belittle and will not even give the LEFT ones the right to voice themselves without ridicule. If we can be this blatantly abusive here among other dinarians, is it not buyable that this is also occurring thru out our nation but only hiding in chats and not in public? I bring this not to argue but to point out that the things we Express here are the things that are actually in our own hearts and minds. Rude is rude and I know because there are times that I have become very rude, times that i wish i could take back. I struggle everyday with niceness but every once and awhile i am given a nugget. Today it would seem that the nugget is seeing both sides of the coin but just wait for tomorrow, my nugget may be a lump of coal......have a good day. barb
  4. I Also took this as a joke, but anymore both sides tend to be bent out of shape when they want to express a particular point. What's good for one should apply to all but WE have allowed our own political parties to rule our voices to the tune of disregarding anyone or thing that disagrees with our thoughts. I'm not here to agree with b/a but I truly see no reason on this one to bash her because of the figure of speech as a joke that she used. It has become or has been for sometime to rip her just because she signs her name and gives her opinion while others can say or apply any negative thought they may conjure up without any retaliation what so ever. The right is just as guilty as the left in my mind. There us no respect on either side. Man has not evolved but continuously devolves by the minute. The political powers have taken over what little common sense that has been given to mankind. We are truly a sad people with no hope with this continued hate and badgering of our fellow mankind.

    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
  8. lol....I could use a new phone, a new iPad and a airline ticket to Texas. Do you have enough $s for that?. I've already voted but I have 2 little dogs that would love some of that Texas beef bone. Book their seats on a private jet and they will vote anyway you want them to. barb
  9. Early voted today. REPUBLICAN across the board. This is war to save our Nation. Vote early and vote often!!!!!!😂

    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.

Mark, do you or have you read much of DA Carson's writings. He is usually one of the speakers that I attend in FL every yr. He is just great in his teachings and theologically sound. If you haven't read him,. You should, you would enjoy and very educational barb

    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
