As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, https://forums.carm.org/vb5/ but if clicking on forum on carm.org homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

    Turn it upside down. To where it once was, the POV of JESUS, his DISCIPLES and his SERVANTS.

    Know God YHWH Elohim is One. And love Him with all. Mk 12, red letter words.

          Waitaminute. I AM. A NAME of YHWH oh NO.
          There is a spirit of Sodom in Israel in these last days ( Jerusalem is one of the World capitals for “Gay Pride”) where Sodomy, drunkenness , foolish conversations, and all manner of perversity are held to be normal things and where those who rally against such acts are slandered and called many names . Revelation 11:8 comes to mind:

          καὶ τὸ πτῶμα αὐτῶν ἐπὶ τῆς πλατείας τῆς πόλεως τῆς μεγάλης, ἥτις καλεῖται πνευματικῶς Σόδομα καὶ Αἴγυπτος, ὅπου καὶ ὁ Κύριος αὐτῶν ἐσταυρώθη.

            If you've ever paid attention to anything Jameson has written, you know that he started with biblical Hebrew. Yes, he knows it fluently, which is more than can be said for certain others who post here.

              He may have started with it, but it is not true that he is fluent in Biblical Hebrew.

                Can you read "a little bit" of Biblical Hebrew ? Say Genesis Chapter 1 ?

                  Humans are vessels to be filled. Satan knows that. Those who refuse to be filled with the Holy Spirit, will be filled by something else and/or by someone -- be it by alcohol, or by three demonic entities, or by pride, or by ambition, etc. . No human vessel is able to remain empty.

                    I'm an auto something. Otto Warmbier I hope not. The Koreans got him and how he died no one knows.

                    Man, I don't even know the ALPHABET. A Hebrew cop would get me handcuffed forwards AND backwards.

                      Certainly if you took Psalm 110:1 seriously AS RENDERED, sir, certainly you would be unitarian sir.

                      Alas and alack sir. A lack of simple common sense sir.

                        Continuing on about Bart Ehrman's view of Philo:

                        ...by the time of Jesus and his followers, most Jews were almost certainly monotheists. But even as they believed that there was only one God Almighty, it was widely held that there were other divine beings -- angels, cherubim, seraphim, principalities, powers, hypostases...

                        This last TERM being of Philo specifically, and not of OT canon at all.

                        Remember, Philo was the culprit who made the Word a "hypostasis," which is a WHO instead of a WHAT, what God speaks forth, the dominant Semitic definition of the Memra.

                        ...Moreover, there was some sense of continuity -- not only discontinuity -- between the divine and human realms. And there was a kind of spectrum of divinity: the Angel of the Lord, already in scripture, could be both angel and God.

                        How Jesus Became God, Bart Ehrman, p. 83.

                        This last sentence I disagree with. I do not think there was in a last analysis any view of angels BEING God Himself at all. They represented God, and sometimes even spoke for God in the first person, as a mouthpiece or instrument of YHWH. They did not come to earth as an incarnation or veil or costume-being OF YHWH.

                        This was the impetus of the gnostic tradition, making God PRETEND to be a man on earth, with a so-called COSTUME of flesh. Leading to all kinds of wayward speculations. INCLUDING the so-called Incarnation of Jesus.
                        Shema will change the Christian World.

                        Turn it upside down. To where it once was, the POV of JESUS, his DISCIPLES and his SERVANTS.

                        Know God YHWH Elohim is One. And love Him with all. Mk 12, red letter words.
