Francis, in my opinion is not the "man of sin," but for sure, he is no scholar of RCC history.
We know from history that it was Augustine (the Bishop of Hippo) who came up with Mary being
held in "Hyperdulia" or high Veneration or adoration offered only to Mary.


He is one of many.  The man of sin is not a single person, neither a succession of the popes~But all, including all false prophets, but not limited to them, but also their followers!

The Roman Catholic church is not by themselves the beast of Revelation 17,18, etc.  but part of all false religions that fills this earth, called, Mystery Babylon, the great".

Tyler, you my friend need to learn church history a little better.  You blame Augustine for everything, besides, that holy man recanted much of his early beliefs, as he became more converted to the truth. Do you need proof?  Other than that, good post.

hap, you said that the fact that God saying He will destroy the wicked is a side to Him we don't want to see.

I disagree. It has been agreed with, that destruction takes place, but what you don't want to acknowledge is that *God* tells us that He gets NO PLEASURE from their destruction, that He wishes none should perish.  It seems that is something you can't grasp. That God will discipline, but when He does, it doesn't remove WHO He is. God IS love, God SO loves the world.

Shalom Rabbi!

It is good to have another Messianic here.  Actually I suspect there may be a couple of others here but are not bold enough to come right out and say so.

I know who they are.   I don't think they're in hiding.

Shalom from Messianic rabbi Jacob Ben Avraham,  I am from Houston, Texas, a Torah teacher and a teacher of basic Hebrew,  I enjoy writing, and have written my first e-book,  I am here to share ideas with all who are interested in reading topics from a Messianic Jewish viewpoint.  I am of Ashkenazi origin (Germany and East Europe) from Father's side and Turkish-Armenian from mother's side.  I was adopted into a Lutheran family, but later, found out about my Jewish roots and returned to the roots of the faith, but never denying Yeshua (Jesus) as LORD and Savior, I was wondering if this forum can add a "Messianic Jewish" section to the forum which shows various religious groups.  Perhaps my first post will be "What is Messianic Judaism?" I think that would be interesting.  Thanks for having me...............Rabbi Jacob

Wouldn't a Messianic section be inviting more divisiveness in the Body of Christ?   Didn't Paul say that there is neither Jew nor Gentile in the body of Christ as there is One New Man in Christ?

I appreciated the ministry of Zola Levitt (now deceased).   He called himself a Hebrew Christian.   He was a Baptist.   I heard him teach at a Baptist church.   His closest theological associate was a Baptist.   He would wear the garb when he taught the symbolism of the feasts and rituals.   He always pointed to Christ and how He fulfilled these things.   

I think that all posters here should be allowed to expressed their views as long as they do not distort who Christ is or what He accomplished on the cross.   There are many denominational distinctions here, but most denominations are in agreement that the New Covenant is not a distinctive covenant with Israel.   That's the divider.   I don't know what you believe in that regard as you've not had an opportunity to express that.   Also, if you are going to have a Jewish emphasis I hope you do acknowledge that Jews have a broad range of beliefs.   Non-Jews typically have little knowledge of Judaism and tend to believe that Jews are separated by one thing:  Do they believe that Jesus was Messiah or not.    Many Jews believe that Israel is Messiah and that Zionism is anti-Messianic.

Thank you, Alan. ::smile::

Matthew 22:14.
"For many are called, but few are chosen.”

The point of the parable.

Do not be like those who refused to come at all or like the one who showed up but was found not dressed properly?

Or, was Jesus saying something else?

Dave;, that song sums it up pretty nicely as well.

Read the verses they prove God is a conditional God

This thread reminds me of Job and his three friends!  Neither Job or his friends were correct.  May I remind you that God is indeed a conditional God, and that ALL OF THOSE CONDITIONS WERE FULFILLED BY ONE MAN, JESUS CHRIST!   There are two covenants, one given to the first Adam, and he did not obey that covenant of works for all that he represented; and there is another covenant that is ALL OF GRACE, made with Christ and his seed, which he fulfilled perfectly!  There are no conditions for the children of grace to meet, in order to enter into eternal life, NONE whatsoever. 

Also, it is very true that God's love is limited to Christ and his seed, both Jews and Gentiles~(the world of John 3:16)

Now, would like to continue to discuss this?

That sounds like it exactly to me.

It reminds me of a song we used to sing back in the day: (early 70s)

I cannot come.
I cannot come to the banquet, Don't trouble me now.
I have married a wife, I have bought me a cow.
I have fields and commitments that cost a pretty sum.
Please hold me excused,
I cannot come.

I found the song:
