Faithsite seems to have been hijacked by a terrorist in Cyprus. I think he has a SECRET PLANT working inside of Jabez who EXCLUDES any defense of those BASHING churches of Christ.
This may be a HIGH CRIME and certainly NOT Christian.
I was accused of swiping a concept from someone about the sexual seduction in the garden of Eden. I posted the following response and as usual they poured GRACE all over my head accusing me of twisting Scriptures and being like Satan. Same old FaithSlight wrecking crew. Without even giving me a chance to say that I needed to get out of the sand box--especially since Bri-Ann jumped in, they CUT ME off.
Here is what I posted to prove that Paul and all recorded history sees the seduction of Eve as sexual and the "serpent" as a Musical Enchanter the same Ophis in Revelation whose speakers, singers and musicians are called SORCERERS which is the same meaning as the Serpent.
I hardly believe there is enough grace to call posted scripture twisted and Satanic. Here is what gets banned rather than refuted:
<font color=purple>FIRST: Any Jewish Scholar would be experts in the prophets which are NOT part of modern New Testament "Christianity." Both Isaiah and Ezekiel identify Tyre with Lucifer in the garden of Eden.
<font color=blue>Thou hast BEEN in EDEN the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy TABRETS
and of thy PIPES
was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. Ezekiel 28:13 </font>
The king/queen of Babylon adds STRING instruments.
<font color=purple>In Isaiah The king/queen of Tyre is identified as the "singing and harp playing prostitute in Eden."
<font color=blue>And it shall come to pass in that day, that Tyre shall be forgotten seventy years, according to the days of one king: after the end of seventy years shall Tyre sing as an harlot.
Here is the song of the prostitute:
<font color=blue>Take an harp
, go about the city, thou that hast been forgotten; make sweet melody, sing many songs,
that thou mayest be remembered. Isaiah 23:16
And it shall come to pass after the end of seventy years, that the Lord will visit Tyre, and she shall turn to her hire, and shall commit fornication with all the kingdoms of the world upon the face of the earth. Isaiah 23:17</font>
This is repeated in Revelation 17 and 18 where the Babylon Harlot's operatives: speakers, singers and musicians are called SORERERS by which the world was or is being deceived.
<font color=purple>SECONDLY: Paul warned of being BEGUILED by pointing to Eve whom the "Jewish authorities" taught meant a SEXUAL attack.
<font color=blue>2Co 11:2 For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to ONE HUSBAND, that I may present you as a CHASTE VIRGIN to Christ.
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. 2 Corinthians 11:3 </font>
<font color=purple>Why would Paul MISLEAD you by using a REAL sexual deception to a spiritual deception? Beguiled is the Greek:
<font color=blue>G1818 exapatao ex-ap-at-ah'-o From G1537 and G538 ; to seduce wholly:--beguile, deceive.
Liddel and Scott: exapataô deceive or beguile, deceive thoroughly, surround yourself with compassion for your swindling tricks, seduce a woman,
<font color=blue>"As soon as he received the intelligence, Thonis sent a message to Proteus, who was at Memphis, to this effect: "A stranger is arrived from Greece; he is by race a Teucrian, and has done a wicked deed in the country from which he is come.
Having beguiled the wife of the man whose guest he was, he carried her away with him, and much treasure also. Compelled by stress of weather, he has now put in here. Are we to let him depart as he came, or shall we seize what he has brought?" Proteus replied, "Seize the man, be he who he may, that has dealt thus wickedly with his friend, and bring him before me, that I may hear what he will say for himself."
- First, thou didst seduce the wife of thy own host- then,
not content therewith, thou must violently excite her mind,
and steal her away from her husband.
</font><font color=purple>Thirdly: JOHN IDENTIFIED CAIN AS OF THAT WICKED ONE.</font>
<font color=blue>1 John 3:11 For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.
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 brothers righteous. 1 John 3:12
G3834 panourgia pan-oorg-ee'-ah From G3835 ; adroitness, that is, (in a bad sense) trickery or sophistry:(cunning) craftiness, subtilty.
L&S: Panourg-eô dared a righteous crime, to be adulterated,
panourg-ia Knave, rogue, villian
The Enchanters or Seers were the mantis diviner, seer, prophet, .Ag.1202, Ch.559, Eu. 169 (lyr.); ho mantis mantin ekpraxas eme, of Apollo and Cassandra, Id.Ag.1275; of the Pythian priestess, of Dionysus, toude manteôs chorou of this prophetic band, II. a kind of grasshopper,
the praying mantis, Mantis religiosa,</font>
These were the Prophesying Muses Paul identified as the UNLEASHED LOCUSTS or grasshoppers!
<font color=purple>LOOKING AT 11:3 AGAIN
</font> The older scholars saw this as both Adam and Eve sexually handled: Eve was seduced but Adam was led by her. That is because Satan is SHEtain and Lucifer is seen as bisexual.
<font color=blue>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. 2 Corinthians 11:3
2 Cor 11:3 phoboumai de mê pôs, hôs ho OPIS exêpatêsen Heuan en têi panourgiai autou, phtharêi ta noêmata humôn apo tês haplotêtos [kai tês hagnotêtos] tês eis ton christon.</font>
The serpent or Nachash in Hebrew is OPHIS in Greek:
The serpent was a Musical Enchanter or enchantress.
<font color=blue>Phtharêi phtheirô Corrupt
b. seduce a woman, hupo tês thugatros adikoumenon kai Dionusiou tou phtheirantos autên kinaidou</font>
The kinaidou were the
<font color=blue>A. catamite, Pl.Grg.494e, etc.: generally, lewd fellow, 2. public dancer
(g5351) fthi'-ro; prob. strength. (to pine or waste): prop. to shrivel or wither, i.e. to spoil (by any process) or (gen.) to ruin (espec. fig. by mor. influences, to deprave): - corrupt (self), defile, destroy
(g5353) fthong'-gos; from 5350; utterance, i.e. a musical note (vocal or instrumental): - sound.
utter a sound or voice, of the flute, of the lyre, phorminx, whether it rings sound or cracked, palamêisi to clap with the hands, </font>
We leave it to others to DISPROVE the historic view that this speaks of a SEXUAL ATTACK just as Cain and Able as the theme of the TWO SONS speak of the agriculturists who practiced FERTILITY CULTS while the Shepherd allowed their "gods" move as THEY moved: what God said of Himself.
