[geocentrism] Re: Three days and three nights

Fair enough.......... However, the point I was making is your argument is 
emotional and is not one found in scripture it is the reasoning of man. Here is 
what I mean.... how bad Hitler was has noting to do with whether or not God and 
the scripture you have in your hand mean exactly what it looks like at face 
value.... When he said he ordained them and do not resist them. Those who say 
it means anything other than what it plainly says have a burden of proof on 
them to prove that it dose not mean exactly that! The point being you can?t 
prove that because all you have is what you have been given including the text. 
The text states that all the answers including how to read and understand the 
text are found in and only in the text not in mans ability to reason or 
anywhere else. There is obviously a "correct way" to read scripture. Scripture 
itself states that it is not found in man?s reasoning abilities or any other 
place except in the text itself and not to look beyond it. And e
 veryone
 will have to determine for themselves if they will accept only and only what 
God states or their own abilities at interpreting what he said. Nothing that I 
have stated has been contrary to scripture and only by scripture will anyone 
know for sure if what I or anyone else says it true or not. That is the 
standard and choice everyone has been given. I could be wrong and If someone 
can demonstrate from scripture, not their reasoning or ideas , but scripture 
then I will accept it as so.

You say that "Hitler only slaughtered 6 million Jews ..." Are we talking of 
numbers here? This is 6 million too many.

Your understanding, then, is that God did indeed place Hitler, Lenin and co., 
in power. You are entitled to believe this if you wish, but I do not share your 
view. That does not mean that I do not understand the Scripture, whereas you 
do. It means that we have differing understandings. One of us is wrong, and 
that man might well be you.

"Plain text," as you put it, may not always be quite so "plain" as you think.

(N) Surely you are not saying that God placed Hitler, Lenin, Pol Pot, Amin,

first appears? 

(A) Surely you are not saying that these governments were less righteous than 
any of the developing countries whose governments allow the murder of 46 
million babies a year,126000 per day in the US alone since 1976??. 40 million. 
This is just the Abortion murders??Do you really think Hitler or Paul pot were 
in any less of God?s favor. ??????.Hitler only slaughtered 6 million Jews and 
he didn?t do all the killing in the war??.How is tolerating them any less 
Culpable. Most people who use this kind of argument just want to either explain 
away what they don?t understand ? or Just want to blame God for the evil..

The short answer to your emotional argument is YES!??.Why??..

Romans 8: 28. And we know that ALL THINGS work together FOR THE GOOD TO THEM 
THAT LOVE GOD, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Matthew 13:41. The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall 
gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do 
iniquity;????.Until then God is not forcing evil from the earth? he is giving 
everyone the opportunity to make a choice trust him or else, which comes 
latter????.

MY PERSONAL FAVORITE ?..the one that gives me the most comfort

2Corinthians 10: 6. And having in a readiness to REVENGE all disobedience, WHEN 
YOUR OBEDIENCE IS FULFILLED???????????.Romans 13:19. Beloved, do not avenge 
yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, "Vengeance is 
Mine, I will repay,'' says the Lord. ?????????? People are so worried about the 
evil of others?..the speck in Hitters eye while ignoring the plank in our 
own?.. this argument does not invalidate the plain word of God, who said He 
ordained them or what ever your translation states??????.It is not our problem 
to worry about the governments our job is????.

Matthew 28:18. And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, ALL POWER is given 
unto me in heaven and in earth. 19. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, 
baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy 
Ghost: 20. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: 
and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen????..God is 
working his plan not mine or yours?? I don?t understand everything but if I did 
then I would be God. This is not my place, my place is to trust in him and his 
word. He will take care of Hitter, Paul pot, us and the abortionist too???.in 
his time, his way, not ours. How is tolerating them any less Culpable. Most 
people who use this kind of argument just want to either explain away what they 
don?t understand ? ????..

2 Peter 2:9. Then the Lord knows how to "deliver the godly" out of temptations 
and to "reserve the unjust under punishment for the day of judgment," 10. and 
especially those who walk according to the flesh in the lust of uncleanness and 
despise authority. They are presumptuous, self-willed; they are not afraid to 
speak evil of dignitaries, 11. whereas angels, who are greater in power and 
might, do not bring a reviling accusation against them before the Lord. 12. But 
these, like natural brute beasts made to be caught and destroyed, "speak evil 
of the things they do not understand," and will utterly perish in their own 
corruption, ????.

?????????. or Just want to blame God for the evil.

(N)How about different translations of the same Scriptures? Do we try and 
understand them, or do we just read them? When translating from one language to 
another, it is the meaning that is of the utmost importance, not the direct, 
word-for-word translation.


(A)The scripture says the same thing in your native language as it does in the 
original?..that is not to say that they all use the same words but the context 
of all Scripture will yield exactly the same meaning. And if it does not, then 
it is not the word of God it would then be a product of man??This is only a 
problem for those who put there trust in man to have preserved his word. Mine 
is in God, I believe that he has preserved it. Those who try to convince you 
other wise do not know anything about translations or scripture! Every single 
verse we have is handed down there are no originals of any scripture or letters 
anywhere. I challenge anyone to show me one. There are however a lot of people 
trying to prop them selves up as learned scholarly individuals?saying that well 
it doesn?t mean that, or it rely means something other than what it plainly 
states?.?. Who told them that? ??.It was not God, He never told anyone that?. 
..That is the pure and vain imagination of men!?...
But
here is what he did say?..Galatians 1: 8. But even if we, or an angel from 
heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let 
him be accursed ????Now how can you do that if it cannot be understood and he 
tells you not to think beyond what is written????Only if your faith is in God 
providence absolutely???.. Colossians 2:8 Beware lest anyone cheat you through 
philosophy and EMPTY DECEIT, according to the tradition of men, according to 
the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. ???? you can 
find anyone claiming to be Christian who will take any position you want and 
tell you and mean it that they are following scripture??? God made man gave man 
language, gave man the ability to read, what he wrote?.. He knows exactly what 
it means to you and me and only by faith in God can you call ANY scripture 
anywhere God?s word. I challenge anyone to show me where other than by faith. 
The ONLY problem is not my interpretation or yours or "how
do I
read it" ?. Only will you accept what he plainly said or will you chose to 
adopt some methodology or hermeneutic not even mentioned in scripture, as the 
"correct way" for understanding? ?????? The Test? Show me where I have not 
spoken as the oracles of God or where God said that he did not intend it that 
way. If you can not do so, the problem is not with how to read scripture, it is 
with men?s willingness to accept ONLY what it says, because all provisions of 
scripture are/were provide by God. Otherwise who is to say what is and is not 
scripture? And any interpretation will do, I mean what?s the standard??.. 
People have it and the standard! Tey chose the "reasoning of men" over plain 
text.
