Q u e s t i o n s W e  M a y  H a v e
p a g e  3 5

-Should a Christian go to war, which obviously would entail the killing of others?.Exodus 20:13. And, if they do, would they be guilty of murder?

What is in the heart? Would you be going because you like to destroy? Would you be going because you are not sure if God would protect your nation? Would you be going with the concept that the Creator is guiding you in protecting your nation and that this is how He wants it done in this particular case? And have you looked at the experience of others who have done so.

"Coexistence on this tightly knit earth should be viewed as an existence not only without wars, but also without [the government] telling us how to live, what to say, what to think, what to know and what not to know."....Aleksandr Isayevich Solzhenitsyn, from a speech given September 11, 1973. Author of.The Gulag Archipelago.and numerous other books.."We know they.(who's they?).are lying. They know they are lying. They know we know they are lying. We know they know we know they are lying, but they are still lying."....Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn.

Malachi 2:10 "Have we not all one father? Has not one God created us? Why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother..."

Only you can decide depending on what you believe.(are sure about).in your heart at this time in your spiritual growth:.Romans 14:23 "...For whatsoever is not of faith is sin.".(sin is a 'missing the mark'; in this case, of what? Missing the mark of complete trust in this Great Infinite One)

Belief is different for everyone; God does not want clones. Nor will God hold your own particular beliefs against you:.Romans 8:1,2 "There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Emmanuel, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Emmanuel has made me free from the law of sin and death.".(what more does it mean to be 'in Christ?)


-How did Noah get all those animals into the ark?.Genesis 6:19,20 "And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shall you bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee. They shall be male and female. Of fowls after their kind and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive."
To accommodate the massive flood soon to occur.(way back then).the ark was about as large as the Titanic. It was 437 feet long, 73 feet wide and 44 feet high.

There are only 300 species of land mammals known to science which are larger than a sheep and almost three times as many are not any larger than a house cat. Noah was instructed to take two of every kind, not two of every variety. For example, two cats, two dogs; not two Collies, two poodles, etc. You would have thought Noah could have left mosquitos, black flies, wasps and other annoying pests out. Ha ha!

The same ratio of boat constuction.(6 to 1).God instructed Noah to use, is used today as the optimum for construction of large ocean going vessels.


-Does the Bible condone slavery?
Slavery is when someone tells you what to do with your body and your life, by controlling your life in some manner.(Karl Marx's Communist Manifesto), without regard for your input. Taking of your possessions as this ancient corrupt king wanted to do.(1Kings 20:1-28).is an example of slavery. How these corrupt ones think?.Psalms 83:3-5. Creeping slavery also occurred in Roman times when Paul was around:.Jude 1:11,14,15 "Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward and perished in the gainsaying of Core...the Lord comes with ten thousands of his saints, to execute judgment upon all and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him."

James 5:1-6 "Go to now, you rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you. Your riches are corrupted and your garments are motheaten. Your gold and silver is cankered and the rust of them shall be a witness against you and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. You have heaped treasure together for the last days. Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, cries and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth. You have lived in pleasure on the earth and been wanton. You have nourished your hearts as in a day of slaughter. You have condemned and killed the just and he does not resist you." Psalms 35:20 "For they speak not peace, but they devise deceitful matters against them that are quiet in the land." Habakkuk 2:5-13 "Yea also, because he transgresses by wine, he is a proud man, neither keeps at home, who enlarges his desire as hell and is as death and cannot be satisfied, but gathers unto him all nations and heaps unto him all people. Shall not all these take up a parable against him and a taunting proverb against him and say, Woe to him that increases that which is not his! How long? And to him that lades himself with thick clay! shall they not rise up suddenly that shall bite you and awake that shall vex you and you shall be for booties unto them? Because you have spoiled many nations, all the remnant of the people shall spoil you, because of men's blood and for the violence of the land, of the city and of all that dwell therein. Woe to him that covets an evil covetousness to his house, that he may set his nest on high, that he may be delivered from the power of evil! You have consulted shame to your house by cutting off many people and have sinned against your soul. For the stone shall cry out of the wall and the beam out of the timber shall answer it. Woe to him that builds a town with blood and establishes a city by iniquity! Behold, is it not of the LORD of hosts that the people shall labour in the very fire and the people shall weary themselves for very vanity?" Micah 2:1,2 "Woe to them that devise iniquity and work evil upon their beds! When the morning is light, they practise it because it is in the power of their hand. And they covet fields and take them by violence and houses they take away; so they oppress a man and his house, even a man and his heritage." Amos 4:1 "Hear this word...which oppress the poor, which crush the needy, which say to their masters, Bring and let us drink.".Micah 2:1,2.

Slavery comes in many forms today. The Bible talks about slavery in a negative way:.1Timothy 1:10; Isaiah 5:8; 28:14,15; Ezekiel 22:12; Nehemiah 5:1-10; 1Samuel 8:10-19; Lamentations 5:1-9; 2Corinthians 3:17; Jeremiah 5:12; Amos 2:6-8; 1Timothy 6:10

Even in the Old Testament, now superseded by the new covenant, greed was contrary to the commonly called, law of Moses.(Old Testament laws). For example the Creator in His workings with people back then provided that, when the children of Israel should enter the land of Canaan, the land should be equitably divided, so all would have a share at no cost or control because the land could not be hijacked from the people and sold back.(Lamentations 5:4).to them:.Numbers 26:53-56. But, alas, because those often in control are those of low consciousness, they followed that which would enrich them at the disadvantage of others:.Isaiah 1:6,7.

Do you have to buy land today or is it free to you as a child of the Creator born on the Earth, for building your home for you and your family. If you have to purchase land, then who is it owned by and/or where did they get it from and why are developers selling land back to you that was given by the Creator for all humanity? The low consciousness of man truly has no bounds in its greed and control for selfish advantage.

And in order to prevent avarice, the Creator ordained that every seven years debts were to be forgiven and that the jubilee occurring once in fifty years, was to be that, if necessary, every man and every family should be restored to their former possessions:.Leviticus 25. Perhaps there could have been no law so well framed to prevent the existence and avoid the evils of the covetousness seen in today's societies:.Deuteronomy 15:1-18 Yet, in defiance of the obvious requirements and spirit of that law, the people in the time of Isaiah had become generally covetous:.Isaiah1:4-7; 5:20,21,23. It's the abnormal way of living. It's the way of the ordinary lower consciousness of humanity and it's a hurtful way to all but those exercising control over others instead of lifting others up to a higher level. 

The Creator made the land not to feed the greed of the few wanting to control it.(Job 20:4-20), but the natural hunger of the many.

There were those whose motivation in life is greed and the control towards greed, so that they stand alone being lords and owners and masters of all, with all others relegated to being tenants and servants:.Matthew 23:4 "For they bind heavy burdens.(some of the burdens today are similar and worse than in olden times:.1Samuel 8:10-22).and grievous to be borne and lay them on men's shoulders, but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers."

Because of such obsessive.preoccupation, serious things await those walking the greed/control path of life:.Ephesians 5:5,6 "For this you know, that no...covetous man, who is an idolater.(covetous people don't share; they worship what they have carved for themselves through principles of greed and control:.Isaiah 2:8; Jeremiah 1:16; 25:14), has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God....for because of these things comes the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.".There is a universal law called reap what you have sown, but because it doesn't unfold its wrath immediately, the foolish think nothing will come upon them:.Isaiah 56:11,12. Those so foolish fail to see the destructive pattern they have set up both for themselves and for others. It's one's attitude that either keys you in or locks you out, until you change it. Decisions toward a new and better direction are important.

Job 15:20-30 "The wicked man travails with pain all his days and the number of these years is hidden to others. A dreadful sound is in his ears. In prosperity the destroyer shall come upon him. He believes not that he shall return out of darkness and he is waited for of the sword...Trouble and anguish shall make him afraid...He shall not be rich, neither shall his substance continue...He shall not depart out of darkness..."

In Revelation, the last book of the Bible, Revelation chapters 17 and 18, our Creator deals harshly with an evil world system that perpetuates slavery in all its forms.

The Creator is not a slave and He created us in His image:.Genesis 1:27.


-What is a saint?
A saint is one who is in the family of God:.Ephesians 3:18. There are degrees of spirituality.

A saint is a sinner.(Romans 5:18,19).who has accepted the way of the Father by desiring a change of heart toward higher consciousness principles, all thanks to Emmanuel the Christ. He then has been placed in a state of righteousness by having all sin removed that hithertohad separated him from this relationship with the Father, therefore enabling a continuous state of sonship with the Father in the brotherhood of Christ. Basically, a saint then, is one who is now awakened to his or her true state of being, a state he or she possessed before the world was made:.2Timothy 1:9.

Paul, in the Book of Ephesians, refers to "saints" and to "the faithful".


-Are there exaggerations in the Bible?
On the contrary, rather than using overstatements, the Bible tends to understate. An example.(when there, click on the 'burnt Hazor with fire' link).
-Why does the Bible talk of more than one heaven?
The three heavens are: where God is, the third heaven.
   The 'second heaven' would be the starry heavens:.Deuteronomy 17:3; Jeremiah 8:2; Matthew 24:29.

And the first.(from our perspective anyway).heaven would be our atmosphere.(Genesis 1:6).from where Emmanuel disappeared, much higher into the invisible third heaven from and into which, Satan was previously cast from:.Acts 1:11 "Which also said, You men of Galilee, why stand you gazing up into heaven? This same Emmanuel, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as you have seen him go into heaven."

executives without character are disasters and scandals waiting to happen."....Michael Josephson
