One flesh is caused by sexual intercourse, and nothing more. But one flesh itself is the state of being metaphorically and spiritually one body with another. The wife's body does not belong to her, but to her husband, and vice versa, because they are one flesh and their bodies are the same. (1 Cor 7). Similarly, we are one in spirit with Christ, and our ...

What differences will being a Christian make in this life? There are as many reactions to being a Christian and having new and eternal life in Jesus as there are people. Sadly many do not seem to be any different than they were before they were Christian. 1 Corinthians 3:1-3 And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto ...

The question does not state any perspective from which to believe that being a Christian will make a difference in this world so, like each of the other answers, I will be as broad as possible. Most Christians believe that Christians set out to uphold high moral values and to help others. Many Christians do indeed try to do this and, by doing so, leave ...

You all need to stop looking through your human eyes, applying your human logic, trying to use your human understanding of what 'one flesh' really means. Instead, look at 'one flesh' from the Creator's perspective, from God's perspective. What do you think God sees at the union of a man & a woman in marriage? From that moment forward, at the creating ...

Living up to Jesus' standards- No one can and we are all unworthy in themselves. No one is good on their own and each man, woman and child is worthy of, and on a trajectory for, only one thing-hell, until God changes that for us. That is why it is only through God's great mercy that anyone is saved. Nothing we can do on our part can save us (Ephesians 2:8, ...

God gave us rules not that we could ever follow all of them, but to convict us of our sin. And, I think the best example of someone that was 'almost' perfect was Moses. He did everything perfectly until the very end when he stuck the rock. HE STRUCK A ROCK and that kept him out of the promised land. After leading all those ungrateful people for 40 years (the ...

I'll call this a rumor. Even the most devout missionaries of the late 1700's Baptistic church, who were stereotyped as those who only had a bible and hymnal to their names, had more than that. One was Mr. Nesom and the other was Ezra Courtney, both who lived in the 1700's-early 1800's. Luther, Calvin, Hus, Rudger, and many of the other reformists, aka ...

And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God. Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed. (John 20:28) Besides no one of the prophets before Jesus ever said something like this: Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known ...

@Susan has now provided a solid answer based on the Hebrew usages of the word for "horn," so there is no need no repeat that information. The general picture is that horns symbolize strength and power. In this answer I will offer some excerpts from the theological writings of Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772), covering his symbolic and spiritual interpretation ...

This is an interesting topic; there has been quite a bit written about it. A Hebrew Lexicon is a good place to start and will give you a basic idea of the range of meanings.1 The term is קרן , qeren. The lexicon is a little difficult to read, so I have reproduced a portion of it here with liberal excerpting, clarifying, expansion of abbreviations, etc. Words ...

in the original Greek language, Simon is called the 'Kananaios' in Mark 3:18 and Matthew 10:4 and, being similar to the Greek word Kananaia (Canaanite), this is generally assumed to mean the 'Canaanite', as we read in most English translations. However, in copying from Mark, the author of Luke and Acts noticed the similarity of this Greek word to the Aramaic ...

The unfaithfulness of the Jews in no way hinders or nullifies God's promises to Abraham and his seed. "What I am saying is this: the Law, which came four hundred and thirty years later, does not invalidate a covenant previously ratified by God, so as to nullify the promise." (Galatians 3:17 NASB) Despite their unfaithfulness, God has confirmed and ...

Question 1: He's being faithful to Himself as the God who cannot lie (Titus 1:2) and who has magnified His Word above His name (Psalm 138:2).

I've read two basic answers. The sons of God were fallen angels (demons) that impregnated women, creating a race of giants. These nephilim are what caused God to finally decide to wipe out an already wicked race* and start over with Noah** and his family. The sons of God were merely the righteous sons of Seth who intermarried with the (presumably pagan ...

I like the Psalm 23:4 Even though I walk   through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil,   for you are with me; your rod and your staff,   they comfort me.

In Joshua 1:7-9, faith in God coupled with obedience is said to produce courage and overcome fear and discouragement. “Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go. Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate ...
