You can run from the Truth but you cannot hide.

I have read some of the most ridiculous arguments on Romans 1:18-32.

How is it that the reprobate mind see’s itself as Holy practicing that which God Condemns, searches for meanings in scripture which cannot be supported in the text. This is not about people God hates, it is a plea to flee the unrighteousness  and repent before it is too late and judgement ensues, be ye Holy for I AM Holy.

As A. T. Robertson has so eloquently stated in his work,

Robertson, A.T. “Commentary on Romans 1:1”. “Robertson’s Word Pictures of the New Testament”.

“Verse 18

For the wrath of God is revealed (αποκαλυπτεται γαρ οργη τεου — apokaluptetai gar orgē theou). Note in Romans Paul‘s use of γαρ — gar now argumentative, now explanatory, now both as here. There is a parallel and antecedent revelation (see Romans 1:17) of God‘s wrath corresponding to the revelation of God‘s righteousness, this an unwritten revelation, but plainly made known. Οργη — Orgē is from οργαω— orgaō to teem, to swell. It is the temper of God towards sin, not rage, but the wrath of reason and law (Shedd). The revelation of God‘s righteousness in the gospel was necessary because of the failure of men to attain it without it, for God‘s wrath justly rested upon all both Gentiles (Romans 1:18-32) and Jews (2:1-3:20).

Ungodliness (ασεβειαν — asebeian). Irreligion, want of reverence toward God, old word (cf. 2 Timothy 2:16).

Unrighteousness (αδικιαν — adikian). Lack (α — a privative and δικη — dikē) of right conduct toward men, injustice (Romans 9:14Luke 18:6). This follows naturally from irreverence. The basis of ethical conduct rests on the nature of God and our attitude toward him, otherwise the law of the jungle (cf. Nietzsche, “might makes right”).

Hold down the truth (την αλητειαν κατεχοντων — tēn alētheian katechontōn). Truth (αλητεια αλητης — alētheiaα — alēthēs from λητω — a privative and λαντανω — lēthō or κατεχω — lanthanōto conceal) is out in the open, but wicked men, so to speak, put it in a box and sit on the lid and “hold it down in unrighteousness.” Their evil deeds conceal the open truth of God from men. Cf. 2 Thessalonians 2:6. for this use of katechō to hinder.

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;”

It is a revealing of the motives of men God is speaking with, Heb. 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

Roberson continues on verse 19:

“Verse 19

Because (διοτι — dioti). Gives the reason (δια οτι — diaτο γνωστον του τεου — hoti like our “for that”) for the revelation of God‘s wrath.

That which may be known of God (γινωσκω — to gnōston tou theou). Verbal adjective from η γνωσις — ginōskō either “the known” as elsewhere in N.T. (Acts 1:19Acts 15:18, etc.) or “the knowable” as usual in ancient Greek, that is “the knowledge” (χρηστον — hē gnōsis) of God. SeePhilemon 3:8. Cf. same use of the verbal αμετατετον — chrēston in Romans 2:4πανερον εν αυτοις— ametatheton in Hebrews 6:17.

Manifest in them (ο τεος επανερωσεν — phaneron en autois). In their hearts and consciences.

God manifested (πανεροω — ho theos ephanerōsen). First aorist active indicative of phaneroō Not mere tautology. See Romans 2:14-16.”

This is the Law written on our hearts when we are honest and we cannot deny the unholy acts of man.

20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen , being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

Note how Robertson continues this study,

“Verse 20

The invisible things of him (τα αορατα αυτου — ta aorata autou). Another verbal adjective (α — aprivative and οραω — horaō to see), old word, either unseen or invisible as here and elsewhere in N.T. (Colossians 1:15., etc.). The attributes of God‘s nature defined here as “his everlasting power and divinity” (η τε αιδιος αυτου δυναμις και τειοτης — hē te aidios autou dunamis kai theiotēs). Αιδιος —Aidios is for αειδιος — aeidios from αει — aei (always), old word, in N.T. only here and Judges 1:6, common in Philo (ζωη αιδιος — zōē aidios), elsewhere αιωνιος — aiōnios Τειοτης — Theiotēs is from τειος — theios (from τεος — theos) quality of τεος — theos and corresponds more to Latin divinitas from divus, divine. In Colossians 2:9 Paul uses τεοτης — theotēs (Latin deitas from deus) deity, both old words and nowhere else in the N.T. Τεοτης — Theotēs is Divine Personality, τειοτης — theiotēs Divine Nature and properties (Sanday and Headlam).

Since the creation of the world (απο κτισεως κοσμου — apo ktiseōs kosmou). He means by God and unto God as antecedent to and superior to the world (cf. Colossians 1:15. about Christ).

Are clearly seen (κατοραται — kathoratai). Present passive indicative of κατοραω — kathoraō(perfective use of κατα — katȧ), old word, only here in N.T., with direct reference to αορατα — aorata

Being perceived (νοουμενα — nooumena). Present passive participle of νοεω — noeō to use the νους — nous (intellect).

That they may be without excuse (εις το ειναι αυτους αναπολογητους — eis to einai autous anapologētous). More likely, “so that they are without excuse.” The use of εις το — eis to and the infinitive (with accusative of general reference) for result like ωστε — hōste is reasonably clear in the N.T. (Moulton, Prolegomena, p. 219; Robertson, Grammar, p. 1003). Αναπολογητους — Anapologētous is another verbal with αν — an from απολογεομαι — apologeomai Old word, in N.T. only here and Romans 2:1 (“inexcusable” here).

21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful ; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened .

Robertson’s says in disecting verse 21 how men deal with their understand of God out of their own vain hearts of unbelief in this manner.

“Verse 21

Because that (διοτι — dioti). As in Romans 1:19.

Knowing God (γνοντες τον τεον — gnontes ton theon). Second aorist active participle of γινωσκω —ginōskō to know by personal experience. Definite statement that originally men had some knowledge of God. No people, however degraded, have yet been found without some yearning after a god, a seeking to find the true God and get back to him as Paul said in Athens (Acts 17:27).

Glorified not as God (ουχ ως τεον εδοχασαν — ouch hōs theon edoxasan). They knew more than they did. This is the reason for the condemnation of the heathen (Romans 2:12-16), the failure to do what they know.

Their senseless heart (η ασυνετος αυτων καρδια — hē asunetos autōn kardia). Καρδια — Kardiais the most comprehensive term for all our faculties whether feeling (Romans 9:2), will (1 Corinthians 4:5), intellect (Romans 10:6). It may be the home of the Holy Spirit (Romans 5:5) or of evil desires (Romans 1:24). See notes on Mark 7:21. for list of vices that come “out of the heart.” Ασυνετος — Asunetos is a verbal adjective from συνιημι — suniēmi to put together, and α — a privative, unintelligent, not able to put together the manifest evidence about God (Romans 1:20). So darkness settled down on their hearts (εσκοτιστη — eskotisthē first aorist ingressive passive of σκοτιζω — skotizō to darken).”

There is no wonder why men today speak so rabidly about Biblical Authority and God for it foretold of there ignorance, arrogance, and effectual destruction of the high mined disbeliever of our day.

22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools ,

Further study with Roberson says:

“Verse 22

Professing themselves to be wise (πασκοντες ειναι σοποι — phaskontes einai sophoi). Σοποι —Sophoi is predicate nominative with ειναι — einai in indirect discourse agreeing with πασκοντες —phaskontes (old verb, from πημι — phēmi to say, rare in N.T.) in case and number according to regular Greek idiom (Robertson, Grammar, p. 1038).

Became vain (εματαιωτησαν — emataiōthēsan). Ingressive first aorist passive indicative of ματαιοω— mataioō from ματαιος — mataios (empty). Empty reasonings as often today.

Became fools (εμωραντησαν — emōranthēsan). Ingressive first aorist passive of μωραινω — mōrainōto be a fool, old word from μωρος — mōros a fool. An oxymoron or sharp saying, true and one that cuts to the bone.

For the likeness of an image (εν ομοιωματι εικονος — en homoiōmati eikonos). Both words, “a likeness which consists in an image or copy” (Lightfoot). See note on Philemon 2:7 for “likeness of men” and Colossians 1:15 for “image of God.” Paul shows indignant contempt for these grotesque efforts to present pictures of a deity that had been lost (Denney). Why is it that heathen images of gods in the form of men and beasts are so horrible to look upon?”

23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four footed beasts, and creeping things.

Robertson skips this verse however, but Fritz Rienecker, ALinguistic Key To The Greek New Testament 1982 Zondarvan states verse 23 this way:

“ηλλαξαν aor. άλλáσσω to exchange. The exchanged one thing for another (Hodge). ἄφθαρτος likeness, implies a resemblance which maybe accidental. Είκων image, presupposes and archetype of which it is a copy. The gen. is gen. of apposition or explanation. (For the word and the preceding, s. Lightfoot, Notes.) φθαρτός corruptible. πετεινά (pl.) birds.τετράπους four-footed.  έρπετά (pl.) creeping things, snakes.”

24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

Robertson continues the his study of verse 24 this way:

“Verse 24

Wherefore (διο — dio). Paul‘s inexorable logic. See it also in Romans 1:26 with the same verb and inRomans 1:28 και — kai like “and so.”

God gave them up (παρεδωκεν αυτους ο τεος — paredōken autous ho theos). First aorist active indicative of παραδιδωμι — paradidōmi old and common verb to hand over (beside, παρα — para) to one‘s power as in Matthew 4:12. These people had already wilfully deserted God who merely left them to their own self-determination and self-destruction, part of the price of man‘s moral freedom. Paul refers to this stage and state of man in Acts 17:30 by “overlooked” (υπεριδων — huperidōn). The withdrawal of God‘s restraint sent men deeper down. Three times Paul uses παρεδωκεν — paredōken here (Romans 1:24Romans 1:26Romans 1:28), not three stages in the giving over, but a repetition of the same withdrawal. The words sound to us like clods on the coffin as God leaves men to work their own wicked will.

That their bodies should be dishonoured (του ατιμαζεσται τα σωματα αυτων — tou atimazesthai ta sōmata autōn). Contemplated result expressed by του — tou (genitive article) and the passive infinitive ατιμαζεσται — atimazesthai (from ατιμος — atimos α — a privative and τιμος —timos dishonoured) with the accusative of general reference. Christians had a new sense of dignity for the body (1 Thessalonians 4:41 Corinthians 6:13). Heathenism left its stamp on the bodies of men and women.”

Here we note the same marks on how we view ourselves today, how we fashion the views of ourselves. On the one hand as those made in the image of God the Latin as Imago Dei as Kiel and Delitzsch Vol. I  Pg.61-62 The  Pentateuch says in reference to this verse: “The creation of man does not take place though a word addressed by God to the earth, but as the result of the divine decree, “We will make man in Our image, after our likeness,”  which proclaimes at the very outset the distinction and pre-eminence of man above all the other creatures of the earth.”.

We have a distinction laid on us that sets us apart from the rest of the creation. We have within us body, soul (ψυχή psuche) and spirit, no other creature has this distinction. Worship is reserved for mankind no other species upon the earth does this. Note in verse 25 what happens next it is a replay of the fall of man in the garden. 

25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator , who is blessed for ever. Amen.

Robertson continues his explanation of these passages in this manner.

“Verse 25

Exchanged (μετηλλαχαν — metēllaxan). First aorist active indicative of μεταλλασσω — metallassōold word for exchanging trade, only here and Romans 1:26 in N.T. What a bargain they made, “the truth of God for (εν — en) the (τωι — tōi) lie.” “The price of mythology” (Bengel).

Worshipped (εσεβαστησαν — esebasthēsan). First aorist passive (used transitively) of σεβαζομαι —sebazomai old verb, used in late Greek like σεβομαι — sebomai to worship.

Rather than the Creator (παρα τον κτισαντα — para ton ktisanta). Placed side by side (παρα —para the Creator and the creature, κτισις — ktisis) they preferred the creature.

Who is blessed forever. Amen (ος εστιν ευλογητοσ Αμην — hos estin eulogētoṡ Amēn). One of Paul‘s doxologies which may come at any moment when he is greatly stirred, as in Romans 9:5.Ευλογητος — Eulogētos is verbal of ευλογεω — eulogeō f0).

This returns us to the problem of the Garden of Eden when Eve desires to be as God. Man always returns to the heights of vanity in comparing himself as a god or setting others up as gods even in early Rome Hercules and others assessing themselves to be god like. The Roman emperor was deemed as a god with the power over life and death and many others even in our late centuries the Japanese Emperor was deemed as a god. But none of us can Create any thing, that is to say as in the scriptural definition: To bring into existence something out of nothing. We cannot breath life into anyone with body soul and spirit, only God can for we are God breathed. Not even Women as pom-pus as they are about bringing life into the world they are only the vessels by which life is delivered. Without God they are empty vessels and devoid of all life and life as we know it ceases. This is why Life is sacred otherwise murder, euthanasia, abortion and any other sin would simple have no sense at all, no morality we would be like the beasts or as the humanist who believes “All things are permissible but not all things are expedient.”. There would be no law and killing some only a matter of circumstance, rape, incest all permissible and in fact the pleasure principal would rule” that which bring me the greatest pleasure is the greatest good.

26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

We will continue the study with Robertson:

“Verse 26

Unto vile passions (εις πατη ατιμιας — eis pathē atimias). Unto passions of dishonour. Πατος —Pathos old word from πασχω — paschō to experience, originally meant any feeling whether good or bad, but in N.T. always in bad sense as here, 1 Thessalonians 4:5Colossians 3:5 (only N.T. examples).

That which is against nature (την παρα πυσιν — tēn para phusin). The degradation of sex is what Paul here notes as one of the results of heathenism (the loss of God in the life of man). They passed by the Creator.”

We hear the cries of the Preacher echoed in Ecclesiastes 1:ff “Vanity of Vanity all is Vanity and vexation of spirit” we hear in verse 14. These verse here echo the same message and the same conclusion for in Chapter 12: 13-14 we find this ” Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter fear God and keep his commandment for this is the whole duty of man for God shall bring every work into judgement every secret thing whether it be good or whether it be evil.”

27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another ; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

we will continue this study with Robertson:

“Verse 27

Turned (εχεκαυτησαν — exekauthēsan). First aorist passive indicative, causative aorist, of εκκαιω —ekkaiō old verb, to burn out, to set on fire, to inflame with anger or lust. Here only in N.T.

Lust (ορεχει — orexei). Only here in N.T.

Unseemliness (ασχημοσυνην — aschēmosunēn). Old word from ασχημον — aschēmon (deformed). In N.T. only here and Revelation 16:15.

Recompense (αντιμιστιαν — antimisthian). See note on 2 Corinthians 6:13 for only other N.T. instance of this late Pauline word, there in good sense, here in bad.

Which was due (hēn edei). Imperfect active for obligation still on them coming down from the past. This debt will be paid in full (apolambanontes pay back as in Luke 6:34, and due as in Luke 23:41). Nature will attend to that in their own bodies and souls.

What have our accusers missed when they read this “the natural use of the woman”, what did the creator say, she will be a help meet (Companion) for him for this is flesh of my flesh and bone of my bone she shall be called Woman. After the fall of mankind note the curse in Gen. 3:16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception. In sorrow thou shalt bring forth children: and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.  Anyone that has been around a pregnant woman for any length of time knows the difficulties associated here. The natural order is male and female, not male and male or female and female or even male and male and occasionally a female this is not the natural order, but we see the corruption evident even in nature and the animal lust that is exhibited. But here he describes those who should know better than to act as the base animals do. We have altered the divine pattern which was given by the Creator and dishonored ourselves by practicing that which the Creator has deemed an abomination in Lev. 20:13, 18:22 or the condemnation of Sodomites in Deut. 23:17, which is stated again in 1Cor. 6:9 and even condemns acts which lend men to acting as women, defined as effeminate. This is the baseness of life without the Creator contrary to the whims of men or women the ultimate goal in life is not the multiple orgasm or life without nagging to put it politically correct and not having to put down the toilet seat or any of the other of the reasons I have heard from the wranglings of those who practice this life style. This life style is contrary to the understand of what Love is  in Jn. 5:3 If you love me keep my commandments and my commandments are not grievous (or burdensome).

Instead let us move on and learn the rest of this passage.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient ;

Continuing this study Robertson clarifies:

“Verse 28

And even as they refused (και κατως ουκ εδοκιμασαν — kai kathōs ouk edokimasan). “And even as they rejected” after trial just as δοκιμαζω — dokimazō is used of testing coins. They tested God at first and turned aside from him.

Knowledge (επιγνωσει — epignōsei). Full knowledge (επι — epi additional, γνωσις — gnōsis). They had a dim memory that was a caricature.

Unto a reprobate mind (εις αδοκιμον νουν — eis adokimon noun). Play on ουκ εδοκιμασαν — ouk edokimasan They rejected God and God rejected their mental attitude and gave them over (Romans 1:24,Romans 1:26Romans 1:28). See this adjective already in 1 Corinthians 9:272 Corinthians 13:5-7. Like an old abandoned building, the home of bats and snakes, left “to do those things which are not fitting” (ποιειν τα μη κατηκοντα — poiein ta mē kathēkonta), like the night clubs of modern cities, the dives and dens of the underworld, without God and in the darkness of unrestrained animal impulses. This was a technical term with Stoics (2 Maccabees 6:4).

29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

Verse 29

Being called with (πεπληρωμενους — peplērōmenous). Perfect passive participle of the common verbπληροω — plēroō state of completion, “filled to the brim with” four vices in the associative instrumental case (αδικιαι — adikiāi unrighteousness as in Romans 1:18πονηριαι — ponēriāi active wickedness as in Mark 7:22πλεονεχιαι — pleonexiāi covetousness as in 1 Thessalonians 2:5Luke 12:15κακιαι— kakiāi maliciousness or inward viciousness of disposition as in 1 Corinthians 5:8). Note asyndeton, no connective in the lists in Romans 1:29-31. Dramatic effect. The order of these words varies in the MSS. and πορνειαι — porneiāi fornication, is not genuine here (absent in Aleph A B C).

Full of (μεστους — mestous). Paul changes from participle to adjective. Old adjective, rare in the N.T., like μεστοω — mestoō to fill full (only in Acts 2:13 in N.T.), stuffed full of (with genitive). Five substantives in the genitive (πτονου — phthonou envy, as in Galatians 5:21πονου — phonou murder, and so a paronomasia or combination with πτονου — phthonou of like sounding words, εριδος — eridos strife, as in 2 Corinthians 12:16κακοητιας — kakoēthias malignity, and here only in N.T. though old word from κακοητης — kakoēthēs and that from κακος — kakos and ητος — ēthos a tendency to put a bad construction on things, depravity of heart and malicious disposition.

30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

Verse 30

Paul changes the construction again to twelve substantives and adjectives that give vivid touches to this composite photograph of the God abandoned soul.

Whisperers (πσιτυριστας — psithuristas). Old word from πσιτυριζω — psithurizō to speak into the ear, to speak secretly, an onomatopoetic word like πσιτυρισμος — psithurismos (2 Corinthians 12:20) and only here in N.T.

Backbiters (καταλαλους — katalalous). Found nowhere else except in Hermas, compound likeκαταλαλεω — katalaleō to talk back (James 4:11), and καταλαλια — katalalia talking back (2 Corinthians 12:20), talkers back whether secretly or openly.

Hateful to God (τεοστυγεις — theostugeis). Old word from τεος — theos and στυγεω — stugeō All the ancient examples take it in the passive sense and so probably here. So στυγητος — stugētos (Titus 3:13). Vulgate has deo odibiles.

Insolent (υβριστας — hubristas). Old word for agent from υβριζω — hubrizō to give insult to, here alone in N.T. save 1 Timothy 1:13.

Haughty (υπερηπανους — huperēphanous). From υπερ — huper and παινομαι — phainomai to appear above others, arrogant in thought and conduct, “stuck up.”

Boastful (αλαζονας — alazonas). From αλη — alē wandering. Empty pretenders, swaggerers, braggarts.

Inventors of evil things (επευρετας κακων — epheuretas kakōn). Inventors of new forms of vice as Nero was. Tacitus (Ann. IV. ii) describes Sejanus as facinorum omnium repertor and Virgil (Aen. ii. 163)scelerum inventor.

Disobedient to parents (γονευσιν απειτεις — goneusin apeitheis). Cf. 1 Timothy 1:92 Timothy 3:2. An ancient and a modern trait.

31 Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

Verse 31

Without understanding (ασυνετους — asunetous). Same word in Romans 1:21.

Covenant-breakers (ασυντετους — asunthetous). Another paronomasia or pun. Α — A privative and verbal συντετος — sunthetos from συντιτημι — suntithēmi to put together. Old word, common in lxx (Jer 3:7), men “false to their engagements” (Sanday and Headlam), who treat covenants as “a scrap of paper.”

Without natural affection (αστοργους — astorgous). Late word, α — a privative and στοργη — storgēlove of kindred. In N.T. only here and 2 Timothy 3:3.

Unmerciful (ανελεημονας — aneleēmonas). From α — a privative and ελεημων — eleēmōn merciful. Late word, only here in N.T. Some MSS. add ασπονδους — aspondous implacable, from 2 Timothy 3:3. It is a terrible picture of the effects of sin on the lives of men and women. The late Dr. R. H. Graves of Canton, China, said that a Chinaman who got hold of this chapter declared that Paul could not have written it, but only a modern missionary who had been to China. It is drawn to the life because Paul knew Pagan Graeco-Roman civilization.

32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Verse 32

The ordinance of God (το δικαιωμα του τεου — to dikaiōma tou theou). The heathen knows that God condemns such evil practices.

But also consent with them (αλλα και συνευδοκουσιν — alla kai suneudokousin). Late verb for hearty approval as in Luke 11:48Acts 8:11 Corinthians 7:12. It is a tragedy of American city government that so many of the officials are proven to be hand in glove with the underworld of law-breakers.”

In conclusion all of those who seek to hate God and mock his laws will still have to answer in the end. We are here to inform men of the Truth, remember your fight is not with me it is with the principalities and power above this world, those who practice these abominations are fighting against God not men. This is not an interpretation it is plain when you read the scripture, it not a grey area we have sufficient understanding from scripture to access the meaning in fact it is self evident to anyone who takes the time to read the text and evaluate it meaning , Robertson is only one tool in the Master tool box of understanding the Greek. For those who brand me as a Legalist I will deal with that in a later post you can be rest assured, You will not change the Truth of God into a lie….

Final Project is on the ERA movement of the 1960’s

My Final Project is on the ERA movement Better Known as Evil Right Away, because that is what it was. Someone lied to you in telling you Religion was only a personal responsible (not binding on any other person) and its Authority was not universal neither was its application to the entirety of mankind and this was a lie as well so I speak only to the Christian here my words are wasted on the non-believers.
Someone told you that God changes His mind and his laws just for you and yes this is a lie too, Rom.2:11 for God is not a man that he should Lie, Num. 23:19. Some of you hold the view that the Biblical Text is the work of men and has changed over the Centuries as is the teaching of the Tubingen School of Thought that holds the position that the scribes changed the word of God over time to fit the Coming of Christ and Christianity and this too is a lie and is provable. They stated that when we research Texts from the past that it will show the gradual changes that were made from the Text we have today and their sugar stick was Isaiah 53 (note that word past tense). An extant copy of Isa. 53 was found in the in the Dead Sea Scrolls and the scholars one of which was my Professor at ACU and a graduate of Pepperdine University in Old Testament Studies who I studied Greek under, these men found after they examined the 2 Texts, one from the Dead Sea called The Great Isaiah Scroll dating back to 100 BCE against the oldest know until that time which our Biblical Text is based on Dated at 1000 AD and reading them side by side and read they are the same. You ask what does that prove?, it proves the evolutionary progression did not exist in the Biblical Text as the Tubingen School theorized and their scholarship and the modernism they declare is a lie. Why don’t you hear about this, because people do not want the truth told, it affirms God is real and mans lies toward God are somehow being hidden. This is not the only evidence there is much, much more such as the “Aveeroo” (transliteration) being found not as a modern understanding of the Word as the Tubingen school’s used it and as they told us but found a thousand years before the Hebrews were known to exist and proving their existence, as the Biblical Text has told us, contrary to Liberal teaching even though the enemies of the Hebrews sought to eradicate them and Gods Word throughout their existence in History. God Word never changers only the lies of men toward God. You won’t hear the import of this understanding because modern scholarship (Rational Religion) rejects the Truth and prefers the good story telling like that of our Ms. GxxxE and others appreciate where truth and its implications are turned into a lie, no difference that the original lie for women who had a movement, which started with “ye shall be as gods knowing the difference between good and evil’ like then and now not recognizing the implications of their actions or accepting the responsibility like men do. You cannot return (It’s how sin entered the world), its documented, its provable and its Authority unquestionable. Notice I did not say that it could not be disobeyed or lied about, or questioned by infidels who keep the party line told till people get tired enough of hearing it and accept the false teachings trading the Truth for a lie and there are many false teachers, just compare what God says (not what I tell you, no debate tricks with and attack on man to discredit me), compare what they teach and what God says “Study” , there are many false teachers just look around you at those who teach things contrary to the teaching of God. Don’t be angry with me be angry with God he is the one you go against, so be honest like men of God you wish to be equal with and accept responsibility for the lies (with God there is no compromise) when you hold the positions of men not God. Mankind has never changed in History in its gossip, backbiting, and its lewdness like when Moses returned for the mountain with God’s Law only to find Aaron a priest of God acquiescing to the demands of the people to take them back to Egypt and committing Idolatry and lewdness not recognizing their utter disregard for what God had given them or the like the Answer to Chxxxxxxe Sxxxxr who claims that because it was allowed means it was approved by God in Biblical times with female Judges and Prophetess has failed to study 1 Sam. 8:4-20 and learn that it was a rejection of God with the Kings (it was an evil time with a stiffnecked people) and a disgrace and for the hardness of their heart God allowed it and taught the lessons which needed to be learned (be careful what you ask God for he may just give it to you). 1Sam 8:7 Notice what God said to Samuel, “And the LORD said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them.” Or did you forget the Kings were not a blessing but a curse of the taskmaster and then use that to justify that it was approved by God, you wrest the scriptures to you own destruction and this is where false teaching begins applying Scripture where it does not apply with a meaning you can apply, not recognizing the influence to a cause that is contrary to the Word of God or Plan of God. This is not about what I believe your problems are with God but what He tells you if you listen. This movement is concerned with how equal you are to the men of sin, glory and the lust for power not just being able to survive but wanting it your way rather than what God actually teaches. Wanting to be of the world and more like the world than Godly and lying to yourselves to justify this fact only shows you misunderstanding of the Biblical Text and its application. No Christian has the right to go against Scripture, read the Book for women doing these things proves you are not a Christian for by definition a Christian is one who belongs to Christ and follows Christ and yes we as Christian can hold each other accountable 1 Peter 3:15 this is the Law of Christ (not referencing the misquote “ we are not under the Law referring “The Old Law of Sin and Death” different impetus there) and are held to Biblical Authority not men’s but Gods we as Christians are demanded to unlike the world of Sin and Death who have no hope.
To the rest of the class who laugh and scorn at these words as one man’s opinion, “you do greatly err not knowing the scriptures neither the power of God”. We have the right in this country, God given, not instituted by men neither given by man nor can it be infringed that is Constitutional and so is the right to speak, before you say a word study what I tell you, before you ridicule without knowledge or wisdom. Until you are familiar enough with the Text don’t citizen unless you just want to incite and show ignorance. To the Christian it is a matter of Service to God but to you and enslavement of mankind steeped in the Raw Base Animalistic and heathen understanding of non- belief, Biblical religion is not you make it up as you go that’s a fairy tale Ms. Gemme I’m sure can teach you many fairy tale if you ask her she seems pretty good at it but that doen’t solve the issues of mankind. When you misapply and reject the Biblical Authority as a fairytale and as story telling you commit the Unpardonable Sin which cannot be forgiven, so beware in denying the Holy Spirit, His Word has come. When you deny that there is no hope and you are left to your own devices. Don’t ever say you were never told or I didn’t know, all you can say is I didn’t care see Mark 3:22-30, Matt. 12 31-32 and its understanding applies see: Mark 3:22-27 and Luke 11:14-23 and for the Scholarly who know who the Respected Christian theologian Dr. F.F. Bruce is he writes, “…Speaking against the Son of man might be due to a failure to recognize Him for what He is. So Paul recalls how in his pre-Christian days he thought it his duty to oppose the name of Jesus of Nazareth. But if, having seen the light on the Damascus road, he had deliberately closed his eyes to it and kicked out against the goad which was directing him into the true path, that would have been the sin against the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit persuades and enables men to accept Christ and enjoy the saving benefits of the gospel [John 16:8; 1 Corinthians 2:12-14; Acts 7:51], but if anyone refuses to submit to the Spirit’s gracious constraint, preferring to call good evil and evil good, how can the gospel avail for him? The deliberate refusal of the grace of God is the one sin which by its very nature is irremediable” [F.F. Bruce, Answers to Questions (Grand Rapids, Michigan: Zondervan Publishing House, 1973), pp. 46-47.].
“Anyone who rejects the Holy Spirit’s convicting influence and does not repent will not be forgiven, ‘neither in this world, neither in the world to come’ (Matthew 12:32)” [Ray Comfort, “The Unpardonable Sin,” The Evidence Bible (Gainesville, Florida: Bridge-Logo Publishers, 2001).].

I tell this day not everyone goes to Heaven and not all religions are the same and not all gods are true, universalism is the tool of the False Teacher against the one true God and on this I Stand. This is not my pulpit, it is not my word, your problem is with God not me so if you have that problem you will meet him shortly, your life is short and I urge everyone to do what is written in 2 Tim. 2:15. In some ways I see Hope in Others I see what caused Jesus to weep in the garden and His statement before he died his prayer “Father forgive them for they know not what they do.” , but now you have no excuse you know what you do and the only excuse you can have is Laxness, backbiting, false teaching and a blatant disregard for what God teaches ( by the way its called mocking God for those who don’t get it). I leave you with this understanding for those who still wish to laugh mock and scorn it is you choice to obey to you glory or disobey to you own destruction as for me my responsibility with God for you is done, I’m command to speak not my word but his, personally I would rather choose to be silent rather than go through the mockery and ridicule, it is not easy to have to obey his commands but I have no choice. Lastly for those who do this (Ridicule, Mock and Doubt) I leave you with this what will you say to the Judge of the earth and Universe when he says as he did to Thomas, “Bring forth thy finger… Bring forth thy hand…. See: John 20:27, you were told and this is why I wrote on the ERA amendment. If the professor wishes he may share it with you, I care not, it is up to him, it is the reason I am what I am. As always.

In response to the Poll at http://polldaddy.com/poll/3162776/?view=results

This is America not Mexico, It’s not Iran or Iraq, It’s not Canada, My descendants were German, Russian, Welsh and Bavarian, but we swear our allegiance to this country which is biblically based not Islamic or any other, contrary to the popular beliefs of the infidels in the ivory towers of this country preaching their secular revisionist history based on John Locke and forced Universalism and Pacifism. Our basic values are not set by the stupidity of school administrators and are so misaligned from what they should be it borders on insanity. The using our schools as a testing ground for legal, psychological and political agendas which never should happen and most of the time never reflect the morals of the home and in most cases are totally against the morals of the home and religion. Never, Never, Never should a show of patriotism and our flag be construed as offensive in this county, if it is then we have a problem with those who are offended, this is not their county it is our country, Americans  not Afro American NOT Hispanic American Not Latin Americans and not White Americans, we are just Americans. To polarize this into agendas of causes or someone laying claim to America by outside interests is not tolerable, especially when they use our children and our schools to do it, we don’t pay homage to La Raza (NCLR) or any other, we don’t shed American blood for Mexico, Islam or any other. Two hundred year of our forefathers who would puke at the thought of what we have tolerated and what we are allowing our great nation to stand for. We (Americans) pay taxes these are our schools not the governments and we need to make them understand this, or we need to fire all of them from the top down and start over. Research the Dumbing of America and you will begin to understand Why we need to stop this Now. We need to restructure at the top and get rid of the agenda of governmental interference and political agendas when it comes to our children, where religious rights reflect the Constitutional values set forth by the founding fathers. Government was to protect the rights of Religion with out becoming a religion, read the Trial of William Penn and William Mead which set the tone of how America views religion, the axiomatic  biblical principal : Where there is not law there is no sin, (If you don’t bind something you do not impede it, it is a protection mechanism that was well understood by the founder of Pennsylvania and Delaware and is quoted in the Trial at Ole Bailey’s) and was the pattern used to construct the Constitution and is the underlying principal of Constitutional statement we follow “Congress shall make no law concerning Religion., it is to protect religion not to make our government atheistic or humanist or any other it was to respect and preserve our Right To Religion Not From It or to wipe it from the pages of our legal system, contrary to the stupidity of our Supreme Court and our governmental bureaucrats who have their own agenda. Even Thomas Jefferson who penned the Constitution knew better than to try to make this Country a Universalist nation and states so in his writings and is the reason Jeremy Bentham’s System of Law was rejected by John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Paine and the Committee on Constitutional Reform.  This needs to stop, Pride in this Nation as Americans not political agenda’s to divide this nation. I trust the founding fathers and their wisdom not the stupidity of those in White house who deem the Constitution an imperfect document and seek to deceive this nation and replace it with change leading us back to the enslavement of the Bastille. I am a former Marine, a preacher, debater, a marriage counselor, a Christian, a grandfather, a cowboy and I will die for This country and defend it from those who would pervert or try to dissolve the bonds of this country or its sovereignty. You will give me Liberty or you will give me death, I fight for this county not Mexico or Canada and if you cannot swear allegiance to this nation maybe you should find a county where you are proud to be there like Iraq or Iran or Afghanistan or just go back to Mexico and don’t tread on Me or this nation.

Citizen’s Rule Book

It is some what sobering to read the early fathers of this country and recognize that they saw it necessary to swear allegiance to this country in a solemn oath as a matter of being a citizen of this great nation and those who were in alliance with other nations or swear allegiance to any foreign ideologies or plotting to over throw this countries ideals were considered traitors and treasonous and they were sought out and either imprisoned or deported after the signing of the constitution, our families were immigrants who came here seeking a new life in a free country and had to swear allegiance to it when now foreign nationals (illegal immigrates in to California estimated at between 10,000 to 50,000 people under the banner of Socialism) are openly trying to over throw this country and its ideals, they say they are protected by our Constitution that they are openly trying to over throw and living in this country off its welfare an the leader of this country is telling immigration not to arrest them and wants to grant them open citizenship without them showing allegiance to it, this is not only criminal it is a complete disregard for the sacredness for which our forefathers lost their lives and is an out right plot against us as Americans.
