How do we know the bible was talking about Egypt whenever it mentions Egypt? The story of the Exodus sounds like it could take place just about anywhere and there is no historical evidence of Israelites in Egypt.

3915f1  No.3351

You're reasoning backwards. If the ancient document says Egypt you presume it means Egypt unless there is compelling evidence in the negative, not an absence of supporting evidence.

>sounds like it could take place just about anywhere

What other place has pharohs and a red sea? Those are both named in Exodus

Do you like it when someone belittles you? Then why do you do it to others; Jesus says in Matthew 7:12, "So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets". Attack their arguments don't attack the person, even if they all are literally the stereotypical neckbeard(most of them aren't) just ignore that attribute. Even if they do verbally attack you, reflect the love of Jesus and love them just as you would love your neighbor.

There need to be an answer when every Christians come across outdated gatcha questions that have been answered like "why does god allow evil".

>Attack their arguments don't attack the person

Pick your battles, and don't cast your pearls before swine. I agree with you, it's better to attack the argument, but you can't debate every edgelord on 8chan. There will be people who after proven wrong will desperately starwman, and go "kike on a stick", and yes it looks bad on their part. However there are some thick people on here who aren't worth talking to in good faith.

San Fransisco Failed, Germany Failed, Iceland Failed, there have been countless attempts to ban infant male circumcision that have failed despite having a majority support in the area? Areas where religious minorities are at an all time low, circumcision rates are essentially non-existent. Yet non-medically justified, routine genital mutilation (religious or not) continues to occur despite the gender counter part being forbidden by law.

What message does it send where males are violated at birth, while females have their bodies protected by law? Iceland hospitals refused to conduct infant circumcision and had signed agreements among the hospitals across the country to refuse such services as medically unjustified. As a result a vote to illegalize the practice was initiated which resulted in international uproar.

It's an extremely simple topic that people have an illogical habit of complicating. The right to inflict bodily injury on another persons body without their consent. Religiously motivated or not. I cant religiously mutilate animals. It's considered animal abuse.

The main contention I have, is to put the practice into perspective to see the true tragedy and the reason why it's not complicated to see why it should be illegal. To turn the infant, into a grown adult, and keep the situation identical.

You are 25 years old. Your parents have decided to take you against your will to the doctors, where people over power you, forcefully strap you onto an operating table, strap your legs and arms down so you can't move, and without anesthesia, take a knife to your genitals, cutting the most private part of your body as you scream in pain. This is something you'd expect in a scene from the Saw movie franchise. Not something we would callously turn a blind eye happening to infants.

So what are you thoughts on why so many countries have failed their own children to protect them from genital mutilation.

Not circumsised thank god and would never do it to my own kids.

Most pedophiles use their lifestyle as a way to hide their actions so long as they aren't hardcore autists.

It's why you commonly see pedos and sexual deviants in positions of power. Recently it was discovered that the Original Nightstalker was a police officer and I believe this decade BTK was discovered to be a town priest.

In short, these people aren't true believers in the faith. They are using it as a cover so people won't suspect them, no different from any other disguise.

the Eternal Word became flesh at a point in time. Does this mean that, the second Person of the Trinity (He who is eternal and CANNOT change) allowed "time" (something He created) to change His nature?

His humanity did not exist before the incarnation, unless the theophanies are, indeed, Christ Jesus.

So the theophanies are the post-incarnate Word, the Second Person of the Trinity? So His Incarnation gave Him a human body eternally?

af2544  No.3268


The theophanies are pre-incarnate. His resurrection body is also different, maybe the same as he was in the theophanies.

My main argument is that taking on human form in the old testament did not involve taking on human nature, which he did when born as a baby.

Happy Easter!

The fact that Jesus rose from the dead on the third day is our only hope. If you are redeemed, you will have a resurrection body. We will be resurrected by the power of Christ.

>12 Now if Christ is preached, that He has been raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead?

>13 But if there is no resurrection of the dead, not even Christ has been raised;

>14 and if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is vain, your faith also is vain.

>15 Moreover we are even found to be false witnesses of God, because we testified against God that He raised Christ, whom He did not raise, if in fact the dead are not raised.

>16 For if the dead are not raised, not even Christ has been raised;

>17 and if Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still in your sins.

>18 Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished.

>19 If we have hoped in Christ in this life only, we are of all men most to be pitied.

>We are by definition supernaturalists, believing in the spiritual realm.

While esoteric stuff happens only on the mind with no effect on anything in reality, God's work manifests in the actual physical realm, while being explained away as "accident" or "coincidence" by non-believers.

This is the difference between various "magic" teachings (usually involving drugs), which at most give you hallucinations and the actual truth (Christianity).

I am a non demon Christian. For the past month or so I been studying Romans and I just cant shake off how baptism is described as being buried with Christ. Not sure, I looked at Beasley Murray's book on baptism in the NT but it only just seems like baptismal regeneration, which isnt what I was told by my evangelical friends.

Should I just be a Lutheran? Am I missing something here?

Honestly, as long as that style of worship motivates you to give Jesus something to eat when he's hungry, give Him something to drink when he's thirsty, take Him in when he's a stranger, clothe Him when he's naked, take care of Him when He's sick, and visit Him when He's in prison, more power to you.

You're in the Bible belt. There is no shortage of conservative Protestant churches where you are, they're just usually not the ones with the billboards.

The issue you're identifying isn't ubiquitous across Protestant churches, and it isn't outright solved in eastern orthodoxy or roman catholicism.

If you wanted to go to a traditional Latin mass, it looks like there is an FSSP parish pretty close to you. The main mass is at 9 AM. The other masses are listed as low masses (meaning the priest wouldn't chant). Also, if you go this Sunday (Easter) evidently they have an easter egg hunt and barbeque.
