Good comments on the Mormons.

Simply put, I think The Mormons graze not in the pasture God provides but they do feast in the pasture Joseph Smith created, hence they are filled with error.

That lesson can be learned from this example which speaks of Israel, once upon a time.

Hosea 13:6 According to ***their pasture***, so were they filled; they were filled, and their heart was exalted; therefore have they forgotten me.

Their pasture which filled them I think can be seen in verse 2.

13:2 And now they sin more and more, and have made them molten images of their silver, and idols ***according to their own understanding***, all of it the work of the craftsmen: they say of them, Let the men that sacrifice kiss the calves.

20 times the KJV renders the term pasture.
Here is a link for anyone who cares to see.

https://www.blueletterbible.org/search/search.cfm?Criteria=pasture&t=KJV#s=s_primary_0_1

I think these words best sums it up.

Psalm 100:3 Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

God sent The True light in English almost 500 years ago to reveal the vain jangling of Rome, not to reconcile to it.

Rom. 10:17 Faith comes by hearing the Word of God.

“ Consider this may be speaking to that ”
Ezek 36:23 And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, saith ***the Lord GOD***, when ***I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes***. 1 Peter 3:15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:

I'm going to my bank today and will tell them that I feel they are oppressing me by the lack of zeros they fail to attribute to my account which says $2.28 but I know should really be $2,000,000.28.
I shall supply the mentioned government school document as proof and demand a withdral.
I will then donate all proceeds of this endeavor to the end Lincoln links fund for the preservation of sound minds.

I hesitated to comment but I'm going to make a mention of something I saw in Malachi concerning the tithe.

Yes, I agree that fruitless debates occur more often than sunrises here, but healthy, honest looks at the Scriptures on topics we think we already know can be beneficial.

The thing I noticed in Malachi was that the priests were the ones being spoken to in Malachi 3 concerning robbing God of His tithe. While I agree everything is His, I can only see at the beginning in Malachi what God is specifically addressing; and I don't think it is cash or monetary concerns but is the currency that matters. So what was God looking for?

where is mine honour, where is my fear?

In John 10 we hear
robbers entering in by other means as well and I believe speaks to the same "currency".

Not sure I completely agree, though. 1 Peter does not appear to be written solely to a Jewish audience at least to me.
Great observation. I agree with your assesment that 1 Peter is not written regarding soley a Jewish audience, but also consider that neither was the prophet Hosea.

Hosea 2:18 And in that day will I make a covenant for them with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven, and with the creeping things of the ground: and I will break the bow and the sword and the battle out of the earth, and will make them to lie down safely.

Did God make a covenant with animals?

No. But He did so with His bride.

Acts 10:11-12 And saw heaven opened, and a certain vessel descending unto him, as it had been a great sheet knit at the four corners, and let down to the earth: Wherein were all manner of fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air.

That picture is given more clarity further on.

Acts 10:45 And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost.

As I was reading your post I recalled that Hosea 2:23 has some more light on what people group Peter was speaking on in 1 Peter 2:10 and thought I'd pass it along.

Blessings

Thanks for the Psalm 98 mention Sister B.

I agree with your thought on the OT and NT being in it together. The picture, to me, is that they are intertwined quite eloquently like a perfected symphony of Lovingkindness.

Psalm 98:1 O sing unto the LORD a new song; for he hath done marvellous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory.

Psalm 98:2 The LORD hath made known his salvation: his righteousness hath he openly shewed in the sight of the heathen.

Isa 52:10 The LORD hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.

Isa 52:15 ... for that which had not been told them *shall they see*; and that which they had not heard shall they consider.

Rom 16:25,26 But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith:

Acts 13:47 For so hath the Lord commanded us, saying, I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth

Rom 15:9 And that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy; as it is written, For this cause I will confess to thee among the Gentiles, and sing unto thy name.

At least I WENT to school, Christopher. You could have gone, too, if you would only have agreed to undergo delousing and detoxification, but oh NO, you had other plans. You wanted to be the most pitiable habitual patron of the Woonsocket Soup Kitchen.
No, James, I never met Herschel Walker, but I was cellmates one time with Bubba Joe “Tightrope” Walker. He was in for making moonshine—his defense was that he thought a thousand gallons for personal use was not unreasonable—and I got locked up for drag racing in my goatcart. What made it so bad was that I was winning when I realized my opponent was actually a cop in an unmarked hay wagon.
BTW, the judge was Tightrope’s cousin Earl, so Tightrope got off with community service. He had to donate ten gallons to the local chapter of the Sheriff’s Auxiliary for their annual barbecue and horseshoe tournament.
I remember reading about that race in the local mullet wrap. I think he only pressed charges on you because he accused you of using some of Tightrope's "octane booster" as the reason he lost his first race.
That judge....It wouldn't happen to be Earl of the Ledbetter clan would it?

I didn't know you went to UGA Doc. That must have been back in the day when V. Dooley was the principal.
Did you ever rub elbows with H. "paper bag of cash" Walker?

One reason people don’t have a firm knowledge of doctrine is because they are lazy and uncommitted to personally searching the scriptures. They would rather have Spurgeon, Gill, Matthew Henry or someone else tell them what the Bible means than to take seriously their personal duty to learn it for themselves.
Good thoughts.

Paul charged Timothy to war a good warfare according to the prophecies which went before on him. Traditions from the fathers were shown to be lies from doing just that. Those prophesies Paul refers to are cited by NT writers numerous times and are expounded upon by them in their context. Instead of making attempts of reconciling the prophets to traditions they instead revealed those vain jangling traditions as false and enlightened Paul to call things that were gain to him, dung.

John 6:45, Isa, 54:13, Isa. 2:3, Micah 4:2 all say He will teach us of His ways. I believe Him!

Nope, I'm saying that is what I think which means I am expressing what I think.
And I think that's all for me on this topic.

I think many examples have been provided in this thread by others to show that using necessary means for protection are acceptable in the eyes of God. Those needing more examples from Scripture to shape their thoughts on the matter can be found when God used a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

1. It must be God's fault that America has a regular Sandy Hook and the nation does nothing about it except blame mental health problems.

2. Today the idea of a right to have a deadly weapon for no other reason than bureaucratic rules, ancient ideas or to kill intruders does seem to be primitive and uncivilised, - Besides unnecessary!

1. The Boston marathon had a tragedy due to a pressure cooker filled with nails. It was neither God's fault, nor the manufacture of the pressure cooker and nails. It was, however, the intention of the individuals to harm, maim, and kill for a reason that I cannot fathom. Shall we ban pressure cookers and nails? THEIR actions received the just consequences.

2. Intruders do not care about rules. Only law abiding citizens do. One who lawfully carries can and do defend others and themselves from those who make these choices of destruction.

Isn't it interesting that
In the early 1780’s when the outcome of the war with the British was in serious doubt, The need for guns and clothing and food to supply George Washington’s Army were in critical short supply; nevertheless, the Congress voted to fund at great cost the Bible in English to issue to the soldiers.

The faith of his own making would simply be filthy rags
so good riddens to them. Perhaps he will be called to the Faith which is the fruit of the indwelling Holy Spirit (Gal 5:22) which is the life of Christ and part and parcel of the gift of grace. Only God knows.
Then he will know that faith is not given; rather it buds and blossoms into life (the just shall live by faith) in the heart of those who hear (ears to hear) or read (with eyes to see and a heart to perceive) the word of God.

Rom 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

That is an interesting idea on Demas, but here is something else to consider.

2 Tim 1:4 For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica;

Paul and those with him (Demas included) were not delivered as of yet from the present evil world Per Gal 1:4, which is during the same timeline as The commentary in 2 Timothy 1:4.

Gal 1:4 Who gave himself for our sins,that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:

I think that will Paul mentioned can be seen when The Son prayed to the Father to keep them from the evil.

John 17:15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.

and I think we see why Demas went the way he did according to John's 1 letter.

1 John 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, **the love of the Father is not in him.**

I think that was a great question you asked SC and I have been thinking on it myself.

We should be able to put to the test that which we believe and not think above what is written(1 Cor 4:6).

1 Thess 5:21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.

There are biblical examples that can be used to show the harm of holding fast to deceit like in Jer. 8:5.

I think it was David who was shown his error by a prophet in a similar manner.
