    Events relating to Holy Week

    The point was simply that I haven't previously associated the word "lynchpin" with the infallibility of anything, much less to my personal belief in, and foundation in, the resurrection of Christ (which was established well before any exposure to twi or pfal.) Furthermore, prior to pfal, I was also already well aware of the canonization of the Bible, and the differences between what is written on the pages of a book and a personal relationship with the Lord. So, if you think that vpw's "chuck the whole thing out the window" statement had much of an impact or effect on my thinking at the time (or since then)... well then, it does indeed seem you'd be mistaken.

    Is this not a doctrinal forum, regardless of what was or wasn't in pfal (which itself was a far cry from the "rightly divided" word of truth.)

    Not fooling anyone, Raf. And I'm sure we'll each end [rewarded] appropriately.

    Never heard of it being the "lynchpin" of anything, much less thought it. Impossible. For starters, I'm well aware of the correlation, and the difference, between the Bible and the Word of God (something which you appear to have little to no regard or concern for.) Yes, I plainly (and perhaps unfairly) shortcut the steps between 1 and 3. Still, there is a fundamental difference in attitude that affects our approach to what is written in the Bible. Some will direct their focus on finding a problem and why it can't be resolved, while others choose to remain focused on finding an answer. Mistaking what the Bible is (and isn't) is a roadblock that many just never seem to be able to really overcome.

    Step 1: Step 2: There is no scripture, as scripture cannot be broken. (John 10:35.) Step 3: There is no God.

    Did Jesus Rise from the Dead?

    Redirect and define things however you want, Raf. Doesn't make you or what you say right, and it sure doesn't indicate that you comprehend much of anything that I've said on the matter. Frankly, it was so ridiculous to me that anyone would say or might think that the "proof" (or evidence, if you prefer) they have for the resurrection is obtained by revelation (which was plainly alluded to), that I'm inclined to think your own chosen verbiage (i.e., "spiritual insight") and view of it probably isn't much different. Not all evidence is "black or white," and not all evidence is conclusive. Neither is all evidence always obvious, or "verifiable." Personal witness and testimonies are often part of the evidence presented in any courtroom of law, where a jury is used to render a verdict on what the truth is. In short, your huffing and puffing here about certain qualifiers and that "evidence is evidence" really means nothing, other than you don't like the qualifiers. However, right from the get go you made it abundantly clear that you are tossing out and will nullify the evidence and testimony of scripture. So, aside from that, I likewise plainly stated that considered from a material (physical senses only) perspective, there isn't going to be any of the kind of evidence that you were looking for. However, there can be (and are) reasons (transcending that which is written in scripture) for arriving at (i.e., ascertaining) a belief in (the truth of) the resurrection of Christ from the dead, that require an individual to "render a verdict." And even though you said that "Zooming in" and "zooming out" is fair, apparently you still either: (1) have no idea what I might have been referring to, or (2) have no idea how to do it as it relates to this particular issue. But, go ahead and plod along with your fun here. What you think of me or my view on the matter isn't going to change any.

    Personal tax records indicate otherwise.

    So, you think they defied the IRS, stopped paying it, and have broken the law?

    Probably have been, since 1984 (when the law changed.)

    Thus Saith Paul

    Yeah, isn't it wonderful that you're so much sharper and clearly understand the message so much better than those apostles that were brought up in the culture and thinking of that day and time. Or, maybe you prefer to think they just chose to be disobedient and not carry it out. Oh, but that's right.... I almost forgot. You don''t believe any of that really happened anyways...

    Thus Saith Paul

    Well, it seems that Zechariah 8 alludes to the coming (or return) of Christ first, and the instructions that were given to the apostles prior to this were unmistakably clear ( see Matt. 10:5, for example.) However, given that I'm also aware of the possibility that the 144 thousand (of Rev. 7:4) might be sent to all the nations. So, the order of it is a bit uncertain. Still seems, Israel first, either way.

    How does your brain know for sure where any thought or sensation comes from?

    Did Jesus Rise from the Dead?

    What difference is there (in your thinking), if there is any, between that and either of the two statements below (which also, may or may not mean the same thing to you)? Once you accept that which is unproveable as true, anything can be accepted as true. Once you accept that which is unproveable as true, anything can be believed.

    Did Jesus Rise from the Dead?

    It's quite twisted (of course)... but, not completely out in left field (from the post below.) There's an obvious difference (or at least, should be obvious) between ascertaining whether something is real, and proving it is real. Evidently your believing is bound to what can be proven. (Which is not at all uncommon, especially for those that tend more to their intellectual side.)
