There is a big difference in buying a damaged generator from a coworker who needed fast cash and a car from someone who had placed his faith in something that you knew beforehand would not occur. The first guy wanted money which you gave him and therefore has no moral or legal right to reclaim the generator. But the second fellow gave you the truck for a pathetic and tragic reason which you knew was false, but you took the truck anyway. That, to me, seems like profiting from someone’s misery. My example to you in the previous post was not to highlight the Rolex but to show the ethical conundrum.
in my case, this would be before literally wearing the binding off my "NIV" bible before converting, by God's grace, to Catholicism from 20+ years in the pitiful heresy of Protestantism.
“A daily Mass attendee will hear most of the entire bible read to him every two years.”
Ummm...no. Most but not all of the New Testament, and just a fraction of the Old.
13.5% of the Old Testament, and 71.5% of the New Testament. 41% of the New Testament and 4% of the Old if you don’t go every day.
Ping to #84.
I think alot of people should apologize for being so gullible as to be taken in by a goofy old guy who’s been wrong SEVERAL times before!
It wasn’t a demand, it was a recommendation based upon biblical principles.
The Baptist “magesterium” is the local church, which wouldn’t apply to the relationship in this instance.
I think he should commit Hari-Kari-on TV.
Because to be "honestly wrong" he had to:
(1) Ignore a significant amount of what is written in the Bible (including the "no man knows the day" teaching by Jesus). This is tantamount to ripping pages out of the Bible, because you don't like what they say.
(2) He had to twist and bend scripture in other areas to support his prophecy. This includes being dogmatic about verses--demanding that there is only once correct intrepretation of a verse: the intrepretation that supports YOUR position.
(3) The Bible bluntly states that those that hold themselves out to be religious teachers will be held to a higher standard by God come judgement day.
(4) This is the second time he has made the exact same "honest mistake." As the old saying goes: once is an accident, the second time is a pattern. And the "honest mistake" he keeps making is placing his own, private interpretation of scripture above what the text of the Bible clearly states--states in such a clear manner that even a child can understand it: no man knows the hour or the day.
