The closer to the Second Commin' So what's the down side?

Where there is no law there is no sin!?!    Posted 03-08-2002 at 16:28:30       [Reply]  [No Email]
The first sins The Creator, warned man [Gen.2:17] disobey Me and you shall surely
die [He had commanded them not to eat of the tree] or you shall surely die. But Satan
said [Gen.3:1-4] You shall not surely die, and this was the first recorded lie in history,
it was told by Satan not by man, and he twisted God's word,and deceived [Gen.3:5] and what did Eve do? [Gen.3:6] she ate and her husband ate of what God said not to eat,and the 1st sin on human kind against God happened. By doing what they had done they had placed another god in place of the true God-they broke the 1st. Commandment,Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Exodus 20:3,they also broke
the 5th commandment by dishonoring their only parent, and he broke the 10th Commandment, lust vanity, egotism,and pride entered into their heart, and the 8th commandment by stealing what was not theirs, 4 of the 10 commandments were broken in the original sin, and there children, Cain and Abel, Cain tilled the ground, and Abel attended the flocks, But by jealousy Cain murdered Abel, Murder was a sin from the very begining,and Where is thy brother? Cain lied to God, therefore he broke another commandment, Cain broke the 6th and the 9th commandment.And what about Joshua 24:2 Before Abraham's time worshipping idols a transgressions of God's law. The penalty of sin reigned from Adam to Moses. [Romans 5:14] and in Genesis 35:2,4, Idolatry was committed in the generations after Abraham,Leviticus 18:1,27 they were taking the name of God in vain a sin before Moses' time. Exodus 20;8-11In Gen. 39:1-2,7 what of Potiphar's with her advances towards Joseph, Joseph refused, why? adultery!*** Where there is no law, sin is not imputed, Joseph knew God's law and he knew that sin would be imputed if he broked that law!, and in Exodus 20:15 How did Jacob, who lived before the10 Commandments were repeated at Sinai, know it was a sin to steal? {Gen.30:33}Jacob knew and understood the meaning of the word steal, and it was sin, in those days as these days, and what about Abraham's wife, when God prevented King Abimelech from marrying Abraham's wife,[Gen.20:3,4] if Abimelech would have taken her to himself it would have been adultery, it would have been a sin,transgression of the law.And did Abraham,who lived between the time of Adam and Moses, have thorough knolwsedge of God's Commandments? Gen.26:5, and God's statues" and God's laws? How did Abraham learn all these things? God's Voice!
Which We hear loud and clear through His Inspired Word written for us, to have
for a witness and a warning, and thus we hear His voice call, The Holy Ghost leading us
to a place God wants us to be, which is in Him, and through Our High Priest which is our
Elder Brother Jesus Christ whom has redeemed us from the pentally of death through our repentace and His shed blood which we are made white as snow in the presents of
Our Holy Father our Creator.

The only down side I can think of is possibly running out of patience while we wait for that glorious day. Satan is running rampant in the world, attacking our country and even attacking us on personal levels. Anything to get us to loose faith. Not gona happen here, I can't wait for the biggest, baddest show down of all time, cause we already know who's gona win.
Keep the faith, joy and peace of mind that we are protected by the blood. Amen.

I don't understand! I am pretty happy here living down on Earth. I have heard people talking about then end forever. There have been so many perdictions for the end that people have people have listened to others sold or gave away everything sat in a barn waiting and it never happen. Is the world full of sheep just looking for some one to follow? Yes the end will come some day and what can we do about it. Nothing! Most likely we will just die and never see it come. If something is going to run into the earth and wipe out the world why worry about it? What can you do about stopping it? California is going to fall into the sea? New York is going to be hit with a Tidal wave? Come on are there that many people out there that are just waiting for it to happen with nothing else to do? I remember everone wanting to make Bomb Shelters, tucking my head between my knees and going under a desk in the 50s at school. Give me a break do you think that would have helped? I know this guy if I tell him is sure is cold out he says this ain't cold you should have seen the winter of 19?? and I told him YA you should have been here during the Ice age it was worst then that year! They have been talking about the END since the beginging. Like the saying goes "All Good Things Must End Someday"!!! Let me know when it is ready to happen and I won't pay my Taxes! Mark H.

Mark you have misunderstood me. I'm not unhappy with my lot in life. I know God's plans for me after I die is going to be better then any thing I can imagine here. This does not mean I am going to set in the barn and wait. To the contrary. I do not believe in the word "content".
I have been blessed with a life you couldn't believe. Love of family and friends. I retired with a pension I'm embarised to talk about. I have a little farm to play with. I can afford the old tractors, tools, horses, and what not. I can take care of my family when I'm gone. Somebody blessed me, it wasn't luck and I sure am not smart enough to do it on my own. God got me through Vietnam (I too was an infrantryman) and 20 years as police officer. So if this is what I have in this word then yes I can't wait to see what's in the next.

One thing my Mother told me just befor she died of Cancer was Mark, I sure hope there is a God because I'm in a lot of pain and dieing soon. I told her you have lead a good life and if there is a Heaven you will be sure to go, and when your their tell Dad I said I will see you when it's my turn. She told me Dad probley won't be there because he took his own life, I said one mistake was not enought. This is how she felt in the end because of what she read. These were two great people in my lfe and I can't belive there isn't something better for them in the end! Mark H.

There is only one non-pardonable sin. Sucide isn't it and I will pay $5000 to any who can prove otherwise.

When a person is in so much pain that there is nothing that can be done. And that pain is changing them for the worst I can understand why it could be done. The only problem is Doctors won't help in ending it so it only leaves you to do it. We do it for animals all the time but with people they just let them suffer. They told me that all that they could do for my Mother is let her starve to death and that's how she ended 72 years of a Great life! I wish I could have saved her the pain she had in the end. You never want to watch a love one go from over 200 lbs to around 60lbs in 6 months time. Giving them water by dripping it on there toung. Having them tell you the see things running around on the floor and you having to say it gone away now. Where is the dignety in dieing this way? People can say it is wrong but after they watch someone go through this they love I think they will change their mind about a early ending. Mark H.

Its not so much what you do but why you do it. There is a differance between doing something out of love and doing something for revenge or anger.

I wanted to give her enought Morphine to keep her asleep at the end but my Sister said it was wrong because the Bible said so. I just could not understand why the Bible would want you to suffer this much. Never again do I want to watch that happen again, I hope someone will help me when I get to a point when it is to late to do it myself. That sure is asking a lot of someone to do. Mark H.

Have you sister show you that part in the Bible. People know a lot about the Bible until it comes time to show you then it's I can't find it right now. Best solution is read it youself.

Mark Hendershot    Posted 03-08-2002 at 10:10:40       [Reply]  [No Email]
I guess the Bible I read is my heart, the way I feel about things. They are talking about re-writing the bible to make it politcly correct now. The Bible was wrote by man and he wrote it in a way that is hard to understand sometimes I can't quote you any chapters but when I used to read it all the time I found lots of things like destroying all the animals, babies and people in this city because of all the bad things going on in it. Could he of not just killed the bad ones? I have a problem with its in his big plan and that we should just belive. He could make a few of the bad leaders sick in this world with his power and save alot of others from suffering insted. Thats one I don't get! Mark H.

Man did not write the Bible, man did write it down though, The Bible is the Word of God. He created all this to be good, but man made it bad. My grandmother passed in a similiar way that your mother did. I seemed to me that man (doctors) allowed her to suffer by trying to save her, in the old days she would of went without near the amount of suffering. Don't blame God for that, blame man, then forgive them for it, just as God will forgive you, Mark Hendershot, for all the terrible things that YOU have done. Read your Bible all the time once again, you will begin to understand it better and better, he will reveal many truths, It seems to me you are still looking?

First, don't let anyone tell you what the Bible says, have them show you. Second read Rev.22:18-20. If you read about the slaughters in the Bible read further and find out why. There are no contradictions.

The biggest problem with the bible is 10 diferent people read it 10 differeny answers . as for sucide I can,t codem person for doing it as I feel you can,t have sane mind and do it You are techially sick Only people who suffer are the ones left behind and soceity is not the kindess good luck bob
