    I like LOTR, but as a kid my favorite books were the Chronicles of Narnia. It's interesting how Tolkien got C.S Lewis to see Christianity in a different way and was instrumental in his conversion.

    Sounds nice. I haven't been to the south of France. But I have been to Paris, Normandy and the East part of France (when I was in Switzerland, a Swiss couple I'm friends with took me across the border to France one day.) Like I said, I love Europe and I've always loved French and the idea of living there for a while. You guys might think I'm silly, but I think everything sounds better in French. Someone could be reading from the phonebook, and it would make my heart melt. :p

    I was in Switzerland for 3 months, for a YWAM class. That's where this picture was taken. I thought the countryside and small towns were absolutely beautiful… And the people are very nice. I was surprised that Zurich wasn't as nice as I had remembered. But I love Europe and I've always wanted to live either in France or somewhere in Western Europe.

    I think there are a number of ways to know about God, he reveals Himself in a number of different ways. But do you believe that those other ways should always be in harmony with scripture?

    Again, without the mind and testimony of the Church, then we can only rely on the Scriptures. But these Scriptures, though sufficient in proclaiming the Gospel, is not the exhaustive source of teachings and revelations of God. The wonders and beauty and truths of God and what He has done cannot be contained in any book.

    Of course, I am simply trying to demonstrate another example of the way doctrines and Apostolic beliefs get distorted in time by men and women who paint pictures in their own heads instead of heeding the teachings held down by our fathers in the faith. And by the way, as a student of the Bible, I’m sure you might understand the significance of why it was indeed a fig tree. There are no coincidences.

    Hmm. It's certainly possible, but I'd be interested in knowing how they came up with that. I'm pretty sure that the Bible doesn't say what type of fruit it was. Not that it really matters… I hope we can all agree that the important point is about obedience, simply trusting and obeying God. Eve disobeyed, as did Adam.

    The fruit, according to the Saints, was actually a fig, which was considered by the ancient Israelites to be the most royal and beneficial fruits. It wasn’t until the Renaissance when it was painted to be an apple.

    Heh... sorry to put that picture in your mind. The thing is, if we're to believe that the eating of the fruit actually means having sex with the Serpent… It clearly says that Eve ate it and then handed some to Adam who also ate. So Adam have sex with the serpent too? It does get very convoluted and absurd, but I wanted to know if those who believe the serpent seed theory believe that.

    I know I said I would bow out of this thread, but I feel I must speak now to you as a concerned friend, straight talk and to the point, hoping to shake you out of the trance your are in. Donnay, you are being misled by men with innovative interpretations and heretical beliefs, apart and against the teachings of the Apostles Whom Christ sent into the world. You are making the misleading complete by relying on your own mind as the definer of what is true or not. You have followed the path of Sola and those like him my putting your faith in yourself and your mind to know what is truth or not, calling it “the Scriptures” when in actuality it is your interpretation of Scriptures which you have elevated as the pillar and foundation of truth. You have in fact made yourself to be the word of God, the mind of God, and the voice of God. This is pride and the biggest destructive passion which exists, which has led many to isolation, bitterness, and despair. Do not be so blind woman that you pit yourself against the God-bearing Saints of Jesus Christ, and naively follow the lies and heresies of those decievers who are whispering in your ear and counting the money you send to them. These hucksters who create connections which do not exist and make claims which are distortions and dangerous. They preach a false gospel, apart from the teachings of the Apostles and those who were entrusted to carry down those teachings.

    So even though the writer of Genesis said that Eve conceived immediately after saying she had sex with her husband Adam, you're claiming that those two points can be separated and we can believe that the serpent was the true biological father, even though that's not what it says? I'm sorry, but that's how false doctrines get started… By hinging an entire doctrine on something that just isn't there, it has to be added to the text. Also, you didn't answer my question… Please answer this because I'm genuinely curious to know your answer to this. Do you believe that Adam and Eve had a threesome with a serpent? Yes or no please. :)

    Hold on, we are not done with the verse yet. So before going to that other verse (which is in a different chapter) let us go back to the verse and look at the pertinent part. Adam had relations with his wife Eve, and she conceived, gave birth to Cain ^ This is coming from the writer of Genesis. The following part of the verse (which I didn't post above) was a quote from Eve, but the first part is a very clear statement by the writer of Genesis, who was inspired by God. Are you saying that you disbelieve those plain words? The fact that the passage you are posting from chapter 3 (the punishment) comes before the verse that says she had sex with Adam does not help your case… In fact it does just the opposite. Also, there is so much wrong with that I don't even know where to begin.

    Which part are you talking about? Obviously it's Eve talking in the quoted part: “I have gotten a man with the help of the Lord.” Where did I claim otherwise?

    I agree that Satan set out from the beginning to stop God's plan. But not through having sex with Eve and fathering Cain, which directly and clearly contradicts a number of scriptures, starting with Genesis 4:1 Adam had relations with his wife Eve, and she conceived, gave birth to Cain and said, “I have gotten a man with the help of the Lord.” I do agree with the angelic interpretation of Genesis 6:4, and in my view that is the way that Satan tried to corrupt mankind. Unlike the serpent seed theory, the angelic interpretation of Genesis 6:4 has a lot of strong, compelling evidence to back it up. I want to say more but I actually have to go right now to do something… But I'll try to come back later.

    I like to look at many different versions to compare them. But the ones I use the most are the KJV, ESV and NASB. I believe that all the races came from Noah's three sons. That is what the Bible says. These three were the sons of Noah, and from these the whole earth was populated.Genesis 9:19 There can be a number of reasons why different skin colors and features came about. As far as I've seen, the Bible doesn't say much about that. But why so much focus on race anyway? Especially when God makes it clear that the physical is not what matters.

    And while I do believe the BIble requires civil authorities to punish homosexuality, and with death as the maximum penalty, I don't think it would be legitimate even for the government to just round up people in a gay bar.

  8. Sorry, but you have failed. That verse does not contain the words "Grace is irresistible." You can interpret it that way, but that's not what the verse says. You had to admit there was "relational language" in the Bible. Yet you have stuck to your guns that there isn't a verse that says "Have a relationship with Jesus." Likewise there is no verse that says "Grace is irresistible." If you were honest you would simply admit that. But you aren't honest.
