1 John 3
2 Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous.
Ken, do you NOTICE that after it says "....Can, who was of that wicked one..." it also says "....BECAUSE his OWN WORKS WERE EVIL..."
Ken, you are still discarding what you don't like or what doesn't fit your ideology and schemes. It means that, just like you have chosen evil when tested by Satan, Cain did the same. Cain CHOSE to do evil, but Able was righteous. OF that wicked one....means he chose to do follow Satan and do evil instead of good.
Reading means nothing if you chose not to use spiritual wisdom. Selective reasoning doesn't cut it....never has....never will.
Then, Ken, on top of all of that, you would stake your soul on abusing 1 Corinthians 3:11
3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
Beguiled doesn't mean to sexually seduce.
1. to influence by trickery, flattery, etc.; mislead; delude.
2. to take away from by cheating or deceiving (usually followed by of ): to be beguiled of money.
3. to charm or divert: a multitude of attractions to beguile the tourist.
4. to pass (time) pleasantly: beguiling the long afternoon with a good book
An opposing opinion...."Now We see in the definition below of "beguile" from the same English dictionary used above, what it's meaning is. We see here that this definition has the same meaning as does the Hebrew word nasha' (Strong's #05377) used in Genesis 3:13 and translated as "beguiled". They both mean deceived. The reference to seduction shown in Strong's is clearly referring to the deception used in seducing one and not to the act of sex itself
be-guile (be-gil'), v. t. To work upon by guile; delude; cheat; disappoint or foil; deprive artfully (of) ; draw (into, out of etc.) as by wiles; charm or divert; while away (time) pleasantly. - be-guile'ment, n. The act of beguiling; the state of being beguiled; a beguiling agency or influence.-- be-guil'er (- gi'ler), n. -- be-guil'ing-ly, adv.
Therefore we can say with certainty that EVE did NOT have sex with Satan which led to the birth of Cain. Eve herself said that she believed that Cain was the man child promised by God in Genesis 4:1"
Ken, you ever heard of the saying "If I could buy you for what you're worth and sell you for what you think you are worth?"
Ken or Donnie, should we consider the KJV bible corrupt on the subject of the Holy Spirit? Did the KJV flub the correct gender of the Holy Spirit?I just quote the text because you are never going to hear beyond sermons reading verse 3-d as "my text for MY additions."
My once upon a time stray cat I took in gave birth to two persian looking ones, one solid black and one tabbyish. The same thing can happen in humans--so I am told.
ONE Mother: Two Fathers!
Since I just copy and paste I don't paint: you have to decide that the ONLY Bible or history on the subject means that Cain himself WAS a son of the Devil as stated (marked by speaking on his own and violating the command to PREACH the Word by READING the Word for Comfort and Doctrine) or that the Devil ENTERED him and REgenerated him. Take your pick: it makes little difference since I don't plan to fleece you in tithes and offerings.
Jesus said that the Jewish clergy which "had a covenant with death and hell" COULD NOT HEAR His message to the "babes" to HIDE from the WISE or SOPHISTS means speaking their own words, singing, playing instruments, acting or dancing--that gliding around on the podium. Do you believe that Jesus was violating ALL of the law by "showing partiality?"
I don't do dogma (includes musical performance or turning God's Word into a song) so I will just COPY AND PASTE and you can decide that it is FIGURATIVE when there is no hint of being figurative.
If I am right then people who will boast about UPSETTING you but moving slowly (Serpent creepethh) so you don't know that you have been INJECTED to NOT RESIST imposing musical performance which is the MARK of the BEAST in the garden because Christ called him-her-it a singing and harp-playing prositute" and in Revelation we learn from caring enough to read and define that:
The MARK is believing that an always gender-singing and playing instead of SPEAKING that which is written for our learning.
The Beast (Lucifer-Zoe-Venus) in the Garden of Eden is the Babylon Mother of Harlots (Revelation 17) using lusted after FRUITS (same as in Amos 8) as a sudden NEW STYLE OF MUSIC or SATYRIC Drama.
The IMAGE or IDOL is REpresenting or IMAGING (Greeks called it a third remove from facts) the WORD of God as TRUE WORSHIP. Jameson says of the hypocrites in Ezekiel 33 "they TURNED the Words of God into a song-Psalmos."
You are correct, Jesus never said 'thou shalt not be a hypocrite.'
I don't intend to spend much time when people cannot read and consider the posted BIBLE TEXT. Did you know that besides using MAYBERRY as sermons and using ARTIST to paint the sermon proves that God does HIDE from the great pretenders quickly replacing the preachers who use the TEXT?
