Green or Orange?

2 Thessalonians 2:10b-12 King James Version
... because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved... GOD SHALL SEND THEM STRONG DELUSION, that they should believe a lie: THAT THEY ALL MIGHT BE DAMNED who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

It is some "interesting logic," isn't it?

I reckon so.

I had some Irish friends who started in the dawn of Saint Paddy's and drank themselves into oblivion by the night. +irish +irish

How else would the life of a legendary Christian be celebrated?

Certainly not by catering to the flesh with drunkenness.

Kinda what I was thinking... But, there were celebrations in Old Testament times where strong drink was permitted.

There is a difference between "permitted to" and "encouraged to".
In the OT, men couldn't control the flesh like those who have crucified the flesh can now.
Thanks be to God.

I am curious as to what you base this statement on?

From what I have read and studied over the years, men in the old testament and the new testament have the same power to control the flesh. Men in the old testament crucified the flesh with the affections and lust. Enoch, John the Baptist, the disciples, and many others are prime examples of such control.


Word up!

Because Jesus had yet to be crucified, men of the OT could not partake of that death, burial, and resurrection WITH CHRIST. (Rom 6:3-7)
Enoch was before the Mosaic Law was in force, and "but sin is not imputed when there is no law." (Rom 5:13)
John, the disciples, and the "many others" were given the atonements of the Law to cover their sins.
They could exert some effort to refuse to submit to temptation, some better than others, but they were all still in the flesh instead of in the Spirit.
That honor wasn't afforded to men till after Jesus made it available. (Rom 8:1-10)
