Re: Almighty God Has Toes!!!

"If what Dake says about God having a physical body in the likeness of men, then why did the son of God have to be MADE in the likeness of men? According to Dake, he already was." He was the Word, (John 1;1) with a Spiritual body, who was with God the Father, and was also God. He had to become like...

Re: What is "SIN"

It was stated by Grandfather, " "Missing the mark" is not MY definition, it is THE definition." It has been some years since I delved deeply into the topic of what sin was/is. This brought me back some to my older studies about sin and its master and brought in some other thoughts. Grandfather stat...

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...

Re: What is "SIN"

BTW, all sin is wickedness. I would disagree. Scripture uses them differently. All wickedness is indeed sin... all sins pay the same wage... So a murdering child killer gets the same punishment as some one who locks their keys in the car? If one can't differentiate between the two, they deserve the...

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: What is "SIN"

The good thing is that perfection does not negate fallibility, or what we may define as mistakes or errors. Fallibility is part of perfection. Case in point, God created man and repented because of the evil man did. Jesus was temped in every way as a man. He could have prevented temptation, but did...

Re: What is "SIN"

It is written..."Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled." (Titus 1:15) Purity itself is a faithful glorification of God. Anything done by the pure glorifies God...even their misspellings and st...

Re: Almighty God Has Toes!!!

Hill Top. Do you still believe God has no toes, therefore no body? If He had a body, He would not be a spirit. The Word had a body, and it was manifested in the flesh with toes. As God the Father is one with Jesus, together they have toes. Again wrong. Read your bible with an open mind. It does not...
