Re: Almighty God Has Toes!!!

If God does not have a body then He must be some spooky nothingness floating about in nowhere land? Mark 16: 19,So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. 1 Peter 3: 22, Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; ang...

Re: Almighty God Has Toes!!!

I guess flood waters have hands... Psalm 98:8 Let the floods clap their hands: let the hills be joyful together So do the trees of the fields... Isa 55:12 the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. This same verse tel...

Re: What is "SIN"

When you use "miss the mark" as your definition of sin, you infer that one is "aiming at" not losing their keys under the command of, in this case, God. Excuse me. "Missing the mark" is not MY definition, it is THE definition. And yes, it does imply that one is "aiming at" something, that something...

Re: What is "SIN"

Your definition of sin as "missed the mark" needs refinement. Sorry, that is the biblical definition of the word. Here is what Vine's has to say: Sin--is, lit., "a missing of the mark," Wikapedia says this:Christian hamartiology ( from Greek: ἁμαρτία, hamartia, "missing the mark , error" and -λογια...

BTW, all sin is wickedness.
I would disagree. Scripture uses them differently.

All wickedness is indeed sin... all sins pay the same wage...

Re: Almighty God Has Toes!!!

I watched the videos and I was not persuaded by Dake's arguments. He did not address the anthropomorphism that was predominantly used in the Hebrew tradition. He did not even attempt to explain the need for Jesus to be made in the likeness of men, if God was already in the likeness of men. (Phil 2:7...

Re: What is "SIN"

1 Timothy 1:13 New King James Version ... although I was formerly a blasphemer, a persecutor, and an insolent man; but I obtained mercy because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. Something that I'd like to add to the thoughts we are exchanging concering "What is Sin?" is a thought concerning the abov...

Re: What is "SIN"

All were sinful, but not all would rise to the degree of what we would call wicked. That might be so, however it poses a number of challenges. To me, Jesus set me free from sin and its dominion. I am dead to sin. I am alive to Christ, however He did not free me from mistakes, nor mistakes others ma...

Re: What is "SIN"

I think we should pause and ponder the spirit and nature of sin in the wicked. Dake had interesting notes that he actually believed sin was a spirit. I don't recall the note at the moment, but certainly made it interesting study. The Bible uses various terms to describe missing the mark of God's st...

Re: Almighty God Has Toes!!!

So, you don't have toes, or are you made in the image and likeness of something with a cloven hoof? How to you explain that everyone looks different? If you say that being made in the image of God requires God to have toes because people have toes, then what skin color does God have? People have di...
