Tozsu, The difference here being,which is of no small significance,is that God Himself placed the value upon each one mentioned in this chapter. Your comparison is far from equal.
while you were writing I edited my post, please read, it brings more balance.
Julia, What of Abraham,and God's declaration regarding him;For I have known him, to the end that he may command his children and his household after him, that they may keep the way of the LORD, to do righteousness and justice; to the end that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which He hath spoken of him.'Genesis 18:19A movement may be one thing, but what God hath said stands! The two words you have made to be equally bad. In reality, only one of those words are bad. Can you guess which one?
savannah,Is there a reason why you use the name julia instead of julius?
Is there a difference,other than the spelling?
julia is a female namejulius is a male name
But all along I am being told; In Christ, there is no difference between Jew and Greek, slave and free person, male and female. You are all the same in Christ Jesus. - Galatians 3:28 So again I ask,what's the difference? Now you have me confused! Is there a double standard of sorts in this case?
Savannah, I am a simple person, and have difficulty reading hidden messages in your posts. Now I see that you "mispelled" it on purpose. I think it is mean and childish.
OK! Tozsu, I do offer an apology to you. I sincerely do. I must also offer you this as well;If my actions are deemed mean and childish, what might be said of one who is turning God's ordained order and authority given us in His Holy Word upside-down? Thanks for your patience and sincerity, there's a refreshing purity in your simple personhood. I am glad to have discourse with you.
Thanks savannah, but someone else should get your apology.I think I understand your passion about what you believe is right. I am learning from this thread.With your last post you restored my belief in civility:)"what might be said of one who is turning God's ordained order and authority given us in His Holy Word upside-down"I had similar thoughts regarding other topics/threads before.What I don't know is that do they do it fully intentionally or are they blinded to see certain truths. If they are blinded by the devil they just need light. What I learned that many that I thought were doing it intentionally in fact were only blinded.
