We agree to disagree. I once held the same perspective as you. I have spent 10 years studying Scripture. I have spent years in the study of apologetics. I have dealt with the difficult questions. I have critically studied the arguments such as the like of which you have posed. I can spend hour... days of providing documentation... and research. I have learned that I can not nor is it my job to convince you. I know what you believe Richard. I have followed your posts. Not once did I block you or chastise you. You are entiltled to your belief and views. I will continue to respect your opposing views for as I stated... I understand.
I dont need apologetics i just need you to be and remain as my brother, I need you to realize my love will never betray you even when i am weak. life has been brutal to me and you can join in and i wont hold it against you. i am the whipping post of this god forsaken population. it is what it is
Under who's banner?
from Vigano's appeal:
"it is our sacred duty to unite ourselves to the spiritual battle, aligning ourselves without hesitation under the banners of Christ our King and Mary our Queen."
[There is NO scriptural support raising up Mary to any such position equal to Jesus Christ ... as "co-redemptrix" .. https://fatima.org/news-views/catholic-apologetics-106/]
"In the silence and fasting which prepares us for the Feast of the Assumption of the Queen of Heaven, let us invoke the Most Holy Virgin, terrible as an army set in battle array"
The "Queen of Heaven" ?!!
Read Jeremiah 7 and 45 and see what GOD has to say about who the "queen of heaven" is and about honoring, praying and making vows to her.
No, brothers and sisters in CHRIST, by NO OTHER NAME can salvation be found than his who died on the cross at Calvary ... the fully God fully human man ... Jesus.
Origen of Alexandria[a] (c. 184 – c. 253), also known as Origen Adamantius,[b] was an early Christian scholar, ascetic, and theologian who was born and spent the first half of his career in Alexandria. He was a prolific writer who wrote roughly 2,000 treatises in multiple branches of theology, including textual criticism, biblical exegesis and hermeneutics, homiletics, and spirituality. He was one of the most influential figures in early Christian theology, apologetics, and asceticism. He has been described as "the greatest genius the early church ever produced"
Why would Peter command those who asked, "What shall we do?" to be saved and after they believed, to "Repent & be Baptized"..?
Why the many instances in the Acts of the Apostles where they found rivers, lakes, and pools to literally DUNK the un-baptized, if it were completed by Birth?
Why would Saul of Tarsus be commanded to, "..arise and be baptized"
Apologetics isn't my specialty, but hermeneutics is. If you'd like, we can "Bubba-Gump" this topic, and take it to the Greek & Hebrew, of the meanings of "shall" and "Baptize" and the hundreds of Biblical and Jewish examples of literal SUBMERSION of adults.
Happy to do so.
(You can lead with your documentation, of how you dispute a clear ordinance of rite/ritual canonized in scripture, seamless across all know CODEX.)
Then, I'll respond with mine.
Or, we leave it here, and I wish only HIS Blessings upon you and yours, and all the readers of this thread.

Media is nothing more than reinforcing a human conditioning that has been designed for the elites destructive means , they have poured vast amounts of resources into scholarly apologetics ripping us away from God for centuries. SEE For the sake of Christ , I pray all SEE !!The human condition as it has stood for centuries is a manufactured thing that rips us away from the spirit of the lord SEE it before it becomes a battle with demons within you.
In combining the scriptures about the Magi following the “Signs” to the birthplace of Jesus with the “Great Sign In Heaven” described in The Book of Revelation, noted Biblical “apologetics” scholars like Dr. Michael Heiser had no trouble publishing their research papers with titles like “September 11: Happy Birthday to Jesus”—as to defend Christianity means telling the truth that Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was born on 11 September 3 BC.I have no doubt that barely any of you know this truth about the day our Lord Jesus was born on—but make no mistake about it, this true date is known to the demonic monsters that killed/sacrificed over 3,000 innocent human beings to their “god” on 11 September 2001—and when I heard that Biden announced that all US troops in Afghanistan will be withdrawn by 11 September 2021 after this war sacrificed another over 500,000 innocent human beings, this actual demonic spitting in the face of Jesus brought immediately to my mind Ezekiel 25:17, where God w
Among Biblical scholars “apologetics” rarely enter into anything having to do with “eschatology”—with one of the lone exceptions being Matthew 2: 1-12 and Revelation 12: 1-9—both of which are found in the New Testament and reference Old Testament scriptures—and when examining all of the ancient languages used in them, sees both “apologetics” and “eschatology” Biblical scholars agreeing that both of them describe astrological events that have already happened, not future ones to come—and are:
Matthew 2: 1-12:
After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east arrived in Jerusalem, asking, “Where is the One who has been born King of the Jews?
We saw His star in the east and have come to worship Him.”
When King Herod heard this, he was disturbed, and all Jerusalem with him.
And when he had assembled all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he asked them where the Christ was to be born.
“In Bethlehem in Judea,” they repli
The following provides some reasons as to why it is vitally important for Christians to make as reasoned and as sound of a defense for their faith as can possibly be made.
Do you delve into the apologetics of what the frontline of the battle between heaven and hell look like, or do you wait until the entire world is on the frontline and the prideful condemnatory masses fall under the weight of the demons they didnt know and refused to see that were in them? The future is crushing, the weight of the hoardes of hell seemingly infinite. Trump has brought down the frontline allowing God to be more present, take advantage and purify yourself of the worlds negativity, come back to Gods pure love and joy. The time is short, dont sacrifice your God given head for your pride and haughtiness.
