    Reminds me of the old joke about major vs. minor surgery. It's minor surgery when they do it to you, and major surgery when it's done to me. So it's minor illness when you have it, but serious...

    Sometimes it does. I will say that I feel seriously ill, but I do get your point. I'm not in the hospital, so that is good to say.

    Isn't that something of a contradiction? If you're vaxed, and if the vax works, then dueling with Covid won't be necessary, will it?

    I'm walking proof the vax is not effective at prevention.

    What a reassuring justification for appointing a person to SCOTUS. "You're a black female, so you're in!"
  5. It's a simple equation. When a person wants to...

    It's a simple equation. When a person wants to believe whatever he/she wants to believe, then that person will cut loose from any objective standard as much as possible.
  6. Why do you believe that? He appealed to John...

    Why do you believe that?

    He appealed to John the Baptist, who himself had been prophecied...by Scripture.
  7. If it's only "nice", then the problem becomes...

    If it's only "nice", then the problem becomes evident.

    I have found that people usually make such comments when they have beliefs not really supported by the Bible.
  8. I've often wondered as well what Pilate's point...

    I've often wondered as well what Pilate's point was. He was replying to the contention of Christ that, "Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice.”

    38Pilate said to him, “What is truth?”...
  9. Mine is non-existent. I used an online help to...

    Mine is non-existent. I used an online help to translate, "What is true?" as opposed to "truth".
  10. Perhaps even more to the point, "Quid est verum?"

    Perhaps even more to the point, "Quid est verum?"

    Could hardly believe my eyes after reading that. I can only surmise that someone has been asleep the past several years. Tom's reply was right on point. "Madam Mim picked Schiff head because of all...

    Who pointed out John 3:16 as a love verse? The rest of your reply is just material that you cooked up yourself from who knows where. My emphasis was on the belief aspect which directly lifts up and...
  13. Just as the serpent was strictly an issue of...

    Just as the serpent was strictly an issue of obedient faith, so salvation now is a matter of obedient faith. So it still comes down to, "whosoever believeth in Him."
  14. And prophecy REQUIRES authority. But I still...

    And prophecy REQUIRES authority.

    But I still think we can agree on John 3:16.

    Sure sounds a lot like authority being exercised to me.
  16. There is no compelling reason to believe that....

    There is no compelling reason to believe that. The authors of the NT took it as basically literal. "If we had no other means by which to determine whether Genesis is myth or history, the New...

    The only appeal to the Bible you made were vague references which included an admonition to read the entire Bible. I can only say that if you have Scripture to validate your views, then bring them...
  18. “It does not need to be backed up by scripture.”...

    “It does not need to be backed up by scripture.” That is your quote. Perhaps you meant to say something else.
  19. We all need the Holy Spirit. I’ve never said...

    We all need the Holy Spirit. I’ve never said otherwise. You have just said, however, that you do not need the Bible to support your views. That’s all yours
  20. You don’t need scripture? Well…ok then. At least...

    You don’t need scripture? Well…ok then. At least you have made that view plain.
  21. Walter, surely you realize that is the weakest...

    Walter, surely you realize that is the weakest response you could have made? It amounts to, "Oh, just read the whole Bible and you'll see it in there somewhere!!" Pretty bad.

    It is one thing to...
  22. Walter, to make such a claim, you will need...

    Walter, to make such a claim, you will need scriptural support. You plainly do not have any. The only sense I can make of your statement is if you are referring to what Jesus did on the cross.

    And...
  23. You have yet to summon the courage to answer the...

    You have yet to summon the courage to answer the question about the resurrection, so you lose all authority to question why others have not answered all of your questions. The resurrection question...
  24. You mean in the same manner you have done in...

    You mean in the same manner you have done in answering if you believe in the resurrection? Like that? Is that what you mean?

    That's true as long as "again and again" works out to none at all.

    Exactly correct. It's all driven by a hatred of anything related to Trump.

    Except, of course, that you cannot explain your own gaffe. Too bad. And putting "EXACTLY" in all caps does not prove anything other than an utter lack of ideas and self-control. I oftentimes wonder...

    Well yeah, but he means other than all of that stuff.
  28. I find it much preferable to your own explanation...

    I find it much preferable to your own explanation of, "Athos says so".

    First you claim I never say why I believe, and then you admit that I do appeal to the teaching of the Bible. You need to...
  29. Uhm..."Scripture says so" is the explanation for...

    Uhm..."Scripture says so" is the explanation for my beliefs. Most people catch on to that fairly quickly. It is an appeal to the authority of the Bible.
  30. True for everyone including you.

    True for everyone including you.
  31. Walter, here's the deal. If you believe something...

    Walter, here's the deal. If you believe something to be true, then you should be able to say, "It says so here and here and here." Pointing to an admittedly disjointed video is not a good strategy....
  32. I get what you are saying, but the opposite side...

    I get what you are saying, but the opposite side of the coin, the sovereignty of God, is also a very clear teaching of the Bible. I don't really know how to resolve the issue other than to say they...
  33. I would not disagree with that, but it is still...

    I would not disagree with that, but it is still not what the text I quoted is referring to.

    As I said, runaway hyperbole. "People died?" The only person who died was one of the protestors who was killed by an out of control member of the Capitol Police force. "Trump cultists"? Oh brother.
  35. No, He didn't. He did not seek Abraham's approval...

    No, He didn't. He did not seek Abraham's approval at all. It is very clear from the text that God had shown up in order to judge the city of Sodom. He did seek Abraham's involvement, but He certainly...

    That was not the point of the text at all. The point is the eternal nature of God. It had nothing to do with us.

    If you can find a passage in the Bible that teaches explicitly the idea that God...

    Man is always given limited authority. It's the same authority you gave your children, but you certainly didn't need their permission to override that limited authority.

    No one gave God authority...
  38. Fair enough as long as we understand that "God...

    Fair enough as long as we understand that "God had no authority" is not the answer. He exercised PLENTY of authority.

    Now you might be saying that God had put man in charge of the Garden, and of...

    Our disagreement is with your idea that God had no authority in the Garden. It's just an incorrect idea that is contradicted on a number of occasions, the most important of which is the fact that God...

    What a disaster this clown has been. But he has done one thing for certain. He has made many of us long for the good ole days of Donald Trump.

    Then how did Eve become aware of the commandment which she most certainly knew? Sorry Walter, but to suggest that God had no authority in the Garden is just silly. He certainly had plenty of...

    God had already told Adam and Eve to not eat the fruit. Eve knew that perfectly well, so how you decided that God did not have the authority to do so is a little mystifying. He clearly knew He did...

    How is the use of "Herr Doctor" more egregious than the constant drumbeat of referring to conservatives as "wackos"? Are we not back to the pot calling the kettle black?
  45. What are the chances of Biden/Harris not running in 2024?

    Especially if the dems are swamped in the midterms as seems very likely. If not B/H, then who? Michelle? HC? Booker? Will the dems think clearly enough to see B/H as having been a disaster and a...

    Like I said…honesty. It was not a dangerous situation as the video makes clear. You are not being truthful. Disappointing.
