    How to differentiate between truth and tradition

    I don't worship humans- Prayer to and worship of humans is a hallmark of the catholic church. I’m not interested in debating the difference between veneration and worship; with every kiss and genuflection, parishioners demonstrate that, in the cc, there is none. Idol worship in the Catholic...

    How to differentiate between truth and tradition

    I didn’t think to make the distinctions that you do here; I didn’t think such was necessary. Perhaps I overestimate the intelligence of the readers here. You make a particularly good point in that last paragraph. Thank you.

    How many were crucified with Yeshua?

    The Bereans studied day and night for no apparent reason because variations in scripture were inspired by the Holy Spirit as simply artistic choices, knowing that one day there’d be college/uni courses on “the Bible as literature”.

    The Great Commission-is it for every Christian

    How does your understanding jibe with those verses? Can’t edit now so correcting the best way I know how.

    How to differentiate between truth and tradition

    Please post the scriptures that establish such traditions as the worship of humans, purgatory, the making of idols, the… well, I could go on all day with the questions. Perhaps you’re working from a different book because no matter how many times I read the 6 different translations I have, I...

    How to differentiate between truth and tradition

    You win. It’s obvious that you have no intention of actually answering the question so we’re done. Have a good life. If you do choose, you can throw some more nonsense posts on the page; you’re welcome to the last word as I’m done with you. Happy New Year!

    The Great Commission-is it for every Christian

    Your reasoning is sound but not definitive by any means. I can’t recall where or even exactly how it was phrased but aren’t there verses that speak of people in general, not an audience of apostles and disciples, as “some are called as teachers, some as prophets, healers”, etc. Hope does your...

    How to differentiate between truth and tradition

    In response to the original post you responded as follows: Traditions are nothing more than laws established. To which I responded: The NUMBER of crosses on Golgotha is a matter of law? You came back with this: Yes -- The law hung them there. All of these including Jesus broke the governing...

    How to differentiate between truth and tradition

    A couple of commenters here have suggested that traditions are harmless, that debunking the nonsensical man-made traditions is unnecessary. A few things here- 1) CARM is a forum for debate and discussion. This is the subject that interests me at the moment. If the question is of no interest to...

    How to differentiate between truth and tradition

    You’ve managed to answer the question AND evade it entirely, an amazing rhetorical feat of disingenuous nonsense. I’m sure you know that you haven’t addressed the real question in this post, evidenced by the fact you’ve ignored the other two questions. How is the December 25th birthdate of...

    The Great Commission-is it for every Christian

    Matthew 28:16-20 Is the “Great Commission” for all believers through the ages or for the contemporaneous audience standing before Yeshua?

    How to differentiate between truth and tradition

    Yeshua spoke against the traditions of the Pharisees more than anything else. How does that jibe with your assertion?

    How to differentiate between truth and tradition

    Yeshua HaMoshiach was born December 25th? This is a matter of law? How so?

    The number of crosses on Golgotha is a matter of law? Please elaborate.

    How to differentiate between truth and tradition

    I’m a student of the scriptures, well aware that I know little with certainty and amazed at all who claim to know more than humanly possible. Are you certain of your traditions and why? Yeshua admonished more people about their traditions than any other topic, declaring that men prefer their...

    How many were crucified with Yeshua?

    I think that there is a point to every jot and tittle in the various translations that exist; that purpose being primarily to foster discussion, thereby promoting the Gospel through reasoned debate. I don’t see where anyone has definitively proven either interpretation. I believe what I believe...

    How many were crucified with Yeshua?

    So there’s no point to the different words being used? YHWH just likes to mix things up a bit arbitrarily?

    How many were crucified with Yeshua?

    19:18 where they crucified him, and with him two others, on this side, and on that side, and Jesus in the midst. That’s the verse. Nothing in what you wrote on this thread negates or supports your interpretation. It can be understood as “two others on this side AND two others on that side” or...

    How many were crucified with Yeshua?

    Hawk did a fine job of answering your question; I’ve got nothing to add.
