Hello HE_Reigns,I appreciated this
Dorcas, you were right above. Ormly is not looking at the italicized words in Luk 3:38 "Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God."In all four cases where it says "the son" in this one verse alone - they are italicized, which means, it is not in the Greek.
Lord Bless you Dorcas. I am sure you have been touched at the heart also and are praying with Christ's mercy. This has affected me also and I noticed it when I saw an article on another site written by an anonymous. This signature to writings does not mean the same to me now. We must grieve with those who grieve and I feel, though the decision was Scriptural, I'm sure the decision makers are grieving also. I've seen some of the biggest strongest men I've known, weep at disfellowships.Thank you for your concerns.
