    Part III Methodius Discourse on the Resurrection par 11 (300 ad) "For," says the Book of Wisdom, "God created man to be immortal, and made him to be an image of His own eternity." Methodius Extracts From the Work on Things Created par 9 (300 ad) But if there are thirteen days in the sight of God from the creation of the world, how can Wisdom say, in the Book of the Son of Sirach: "Who can number the sand of the sea, and the drops of rain, and the days of eternity?" Cyril of Jerusalem Catechetical Lecture 4.33 (315-386 ad) Read the Divine Scriptures, the twenty-two books of the Old Testament, these that have been translated by the Seventy-two Interpreters Cyril of Jerusalem Catechetical Lecture 4.34 (315-386 ad) And when they had fulfilled the task in seventy-two days, he brought together all their translations, which they had made in different chambers without sending them one to another, and found that they agreed not only in the sense but even in words. For the process was no word-craft, nor contrivance of human devices: but the translation of the Divine Scriptures, spoken by the Holy Ghost, was of the Holy Ghost accomplished. Augustine of Hippo City of God Book 18 ch 43 (354-430 ad)

    Which of the learned men of the day recognized the Messiah that had been promised and prophesied in those books that they knew so well. And the truth was right in front of them. Josephus was ignorant. He may have been able to write,, but he was an ignorant man.

    No they did not. The Jews did not regard them as canonical, and why don't you study a little bit more before making obviously untrue statements. For example, Josephus says:

    To add to this thread, it was during this same time of the Nazi round up of Jews in Greece when the monks of Mount Athos hid Jews within the monasteries to avoid them from being captured. That was the only time in a thousand years when any females were admitted into the Holy Mountain (according to the ancient rule which was introduced forbidding women there, not because women are inferior by any means, for the greatest Christian Saint is a woman and the guardian of Mount Athos (the Virgin Mary), but because it was established to be a place for male monks to seek constant and incessant prayer for the world, undistracted). But during those dark days, the monks risked their lives and security to protect these innocent Jewish women.

    No. I know exactly what the apostles taught and what the early Christians believed. It's the gospels and the epistles.

    Actually, they did. As did Jesus. In Matthew 6:33, Jesus is borrowing from Wisdom Of Solomon 8:7. This should not be a surprise, as Matthew's audience is Jewish-and would've known the literature and regarded it as scripture.

    Here is a man who found the truth in the Orthodox Church and joined at great financial risk to himself and with the knowledge that he would be mocked and alienated by long time friends and loved ones for joining. But when a person comes to see the truth, as led by God’s will through the Holy Spirit, than nothing can stop them, even death itself. God bless all those who struggle yet persevere, for it is the Church of the martyrs which demonstrates where the Church of the Saints is, and it is the Orthodox Church which has always been and will always be the Church of the martyrs and the Church of the Saints. May they continue to pray and intercede for us before the Throne of God, and through their prayers, may God have mercy on us.

    You do not know that. You take the word of someone who said that.. and yet the books were known to Jude who quoted from it. you say,,, does not mean much. Do you realize,, that the same influence that banned Enoch also wanted to remove the Revelation of John.

    Enoch was a prophet. Enoch did not write the book of Enoch. Do you not know, or just not care, that it is a 1st century forgery?

    I am afraid I don't have a full answer for that. But a great deal as far as I can tell. You have made clear your total rejection of Enoch,, the collected books or even mention of him. Repeatedly.. Some removed the books from the bible,, others retained them. Jude called him a prophet.

    2. United States – 10.59 million barrels per day In a disappointment to Americans everywhere, the US sits at second place with production equal to 12% of the total. Because of its high-tech economy and stable investment climate, the US is at the forefront of non-conventional energy extraction including shale oil and tar sands. These types of oil drilling have reshaped the landscape: the Bakken oil development in North Dakota now shines as brightly at night as regional neighbors like Minneapolis-St. Paul and Chicago. In the future, the US appears set to reclaim its mantle as top oil producer from Saudi Arabia as it moves to tap into an estimated 1,442 billion barrels of recoverable oil. In the meantime, the US is forced to import oil from Mexico, Canada, and other sources as its consumption still exceeds production. 1. Saudi Arabia – 11.75 million barrels per day The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia produces a whopping 13.24 percent of all the oil produced daily in the entire world. Considering that they sit on over 260 billion barrels of oil–the second highest total after Venezuela–the fortune of the House of Saud appears secure. Its crown as oil champion, however, is less secure: when accounting for energy production including natural gas and biofuels, Saudi Arabia is already behind the United States. https://financesonline.com/top-10-oil-producing-countries-in-the-world-wheres-the-greatest-petroleum-dominion/

    Are you humbled by the fact that the Jews of Jesus day didn't regard the duetero books as Scripture? Probably not. You probably didn't know that.

    Including the Duetero canon, btw. God is absolutely revealed in that literature and it is a shame Protestants don't read it (Jesus and the apostles did). Reading the *whole* bible is very humbling.

    Then why do you reject them when they don't suit your narrowed doctrine. There is much more than just Romans.. and some tangential in there. You reject the writings of a prophet though scripture confirms he was one. I really wonder how much of the bible you have not read,, because your teachers do not seem to be teaching all of it. You really need to read the whole bible.

    A "mythology" is not inherently false. It can be simply a set of stories, traditions, or beliefs associated with a particular group or the history of an event, arising naturally or deliberately fostered. We can call literally all faith traditions "mythologies". I just don't bother to sit around antagonizing other faiths like you do because a) it's a waste of time and b) as the old monastic saying goes "keep your eyes on your own plate".

    I just started looking at the Constitution Party platform since you recommended it awhile back. There are some good things in it, but there are also some concessions to statism that I think are dangerous despite the fact that I'm moving away from strict anarcho-capitalist libertarianism. They support regulation of "obscenity", which isn't really defined, they support some drug restrictions, and they are careful to show their respect for agents of our currently illegitimate state (veterans), as well as condemning attempts to cut their benefits despite the fact that they are paid out of our pockets and for participating in unjust wars for an unjust system.

    The Constitution Party isn't all bad, and I might support some of their candidates, but I don't think there is any party I can support on principle (LP is pro-choice so not an option) I respect strict theonomy even though I'm not sure I agree with it yet. I don't think anybody believes what I'm starting to believe these days.

    OK, so my question is, with relations to Galatians, how is it that you can call Roman Catholics on this board "brothers" even though they add works to the gospel just like the Judaizers did? How is adding baptism as a requirement in order to be saved any different than adding circumcision as a requirement?

    Out of curiosity, how do you interpret Galatians 1:8-9 and 2 John 9-11?
