Temple dwelling God

It has been put that this is a contradiction in the bible, though I have to ask, who cares anyway, but here is my response...
God dwells in chosen temples...2 Chron 7:12,16 Agree
God dwells not in temples...Acts 7:48 Agree

I agree with what both those verses say, yet God stills dwells in temples, the Acts 7:48 is only partially quoted, that is because the author at evilbible.com has a pretext.

Conclusion: God dwells in temples, singular and plural (though not buildings).

Dave, can you leave off the spidery italics please - they are hard to read.

There are much better contradictions than this one.

There are no contradictions in these two passages only confirmation that God desires a dwelling place with man, that the dwelling place and time is of God's choosing and he is sovereign in this matter. I hope this isn't to black and white for some. The word of God is all of the bible not isolated scripture, which is only a section of the word of God sometimes taken out of context often to distort scripture to suit ones own agenda, fears or insecurities.

Love

Peter

Dinsy, which italics look spidery, it looks fine on mine, and none of it is italics on mine??

Meg said...

I would humbly submit that there are no real contradictions in the Textus Receptus, not in either Chronicles, Acts or elsewhere. This is not a view that I originated; it's that of the late Bible scholar Dr. Edward F. Hills, among many others. It was also the view of the established church until the "Enlightenment."

Italics: dinsy, you've got a point... but I can still read them...

Dave said...

I have changed the font type to see if that helps, if it does then I will avoid using Trebuchet again.
On the subject of contradictions etc, if someone thinks the bible is contradictory, or evil (as on evilbible.com) then i ahve an answer that someone told me yesterday...don't read it.

There I've said it...don't read the Bible...it was never meant for forensic examination...it was meant for something else...maybe thats the next post!!

GOD SAID KILL THE HOMOS

Leviticus 20:13:
(American Standard Version, 1901) "And if a man lie with mankind, as with womankind, both of them have committed abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them."

GOD OF LOVE

Exd 21:15 And he that smiteth his father, or his mother, shall be surely put to death.

GOD OF LOVE

Exodus 22:19
19. Whosoever lieth with a beast shall surely be put to deatH
19. Quisquis concubuerit cum animali, morte moriatur.

GOD OF LOVE

Kill Followers of Other Religions.

1) If your own full brother, or your son or daughter, or your beloved wife, or you intimate friend, entices you secretly to serve other gods, whom you and your fathers have not known, gods of any other nations, near at hand or far away, from one end of the earth to the other: do not yield to him or listen to him, nor look with pity upon him, to spare or shield him, but kill him. Your hand shall be the first raised to slay him; the rest of the people shall join in with you. You shall stone him to death, because he sought to lead you astray from the Lord, your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, that place of slavery. And all Israel, hearing of this, shall fear and never do such evil as this in your midst. (Deuteronomy 13:7-12 NAB)



2) Suppose a man or woman among you, in one of your towns that the LORD your God is giving you, has done evil in the sight of the LORD your God and has violated the covenant by serving other gods or by worshiping the sun, the moon, or any of the forces of heaven, which I have strictly forbidden. When you hear about it, investigate the matter thoroughly. If it is true that this detestable thing has been done in Israel, then that man or woman must be taken to the gates of the town and stoned to death. (Deuteronomy 17:2-5 NLT)

Kill People for Working on the Sabbath

The LORD then gave these further instructions to Moses: 'Tell the people of Israel to keep my Sabbath day, for the Sabbath is a sign of the covenant between me and you forever. It helps you to remember that I am the LORD, who makes you holy. Yes, keep the Sabbath day, for it is holy. Anyone who desecrates it must die; anyone who works on that day will be cut off from the community. Work six days only, but the seventh day must be a day of total rest. I repeat: Because the LORD considers it a holy day, anyone who works on the Sabbath must be put to death.' (Exodus 31:12-15

Kill Sons of Sinners

Make ready to slaughter his sons for the guilt of their fathers; Lest they rise and posses the earth, and fill the breadth of the world with tyrants. (Isaiah 14:21

CL, glad(?) to see you're back on form!!!!!

Dave said...

CL, I believe the bible but do not want to kill everyone, why are your quotes always Old Testament ones...I think you are so obsessed with Christianity that you actually want to be one...why not give it a go...mind you, do you really want to love people?

Brian said...

CL, try looking into the New Testament. In my understanding, the Laws set forth in the OT, most, at least the ones you quote, were commanded by God to Moses and Aaron to establish order after leaving Egypt, wandering for 40 years, worshipping idols, disobeying God.

Without access to the Holy Spirit, for council, guidance, discernment, etc., God laid out strict laws to establish the nation of Israel.

Lest you forget, God previously wiped out all those that disobeyed him in a flood.

OT laws were given to establish Israel as a nation. They were simply a lawless people, having just been set free from captivity. Heck, just a few days with the absence of their leader had all the people melting their gold down to make a golden Calf to worship. They did not know what to do.

The New Testament...Jesus, Emmanuel, the son of God, (try to wrap your mind around this), FULFILLED those laws. Mankind was no longer bound by OT law, Christ was/is the Law. The new covanent/rainbow of the promise that God loves all of us, and only wants us to love him back.

If you think about it, God could have just killed everyone off again in another flood, or great earth consuming fire. but, he did not. God came down to Earth, lived amongst his creation, and saw that it was good, but it again needed correction. But because God loves his children, his creation, he gave up his only son, to be tortured and crucified, killed instead of mankind.

Now we have the gift that Jesus left for us, the holy spirit. Which if you let it, can give guidance, council, discerment, wisdom, direction, comfort, all the things that the OT Israelites did not have direct access to. We have the indwelling of the holy spirit to help give us understanding of right and wrong, sin fom righteousness.

Understanding that all of those Laws while true and good to know, are imparted into our spirits once we invite Jesus into our hearts. We, our hearts, minds, soul, spirits are forever changed to only want to reeflect God and Christs love out into the world.

But we will always make mistakes, sin, but, because of what Christ did for us on the cross, we are forgiven for those mistakes. That is part of the journey that we are all on. Killing and death are a part of the fallen world we live in. It's up to each individual to make the choice as to how they will live their lives.

And where they want to spend eternity. In the prescence of God the Father or absolute separation from God.

Kill All of Babylon



"Go up, my warriors, against the land of Merathaim and against the people of Pekod. Yes, march against Babylon, the land of rebels, a land that I will judge! Pursue, kill, and completely destroy them, as I have commanded you," says the LORD. "Let the battle cry be heard in the land, a shout of great destruction". (Jeremiah 50:21-22 NLT)

CL why do you call me St.Peter? You make the assumtion that I am a Christian, you do not know me I do not know you. You say God is on your side!! Which god are you talking about the God of mercy , love and goodness or your god of contadictions? are you a contradiction? someone who loves God and hates christians. Or do you love the things that God hates?
Is there so much hate in you that you need to express it toward those whom love God....interesting.

Love

Peter

"Truth must prevail, everyone else must be destroyed"

... that's a good idea CL! You should consider starting a fanatical religious movement.

"Go up, my warriors, against the land of Merathaim and against the people of Pekod. Yes, march against Babylon, the land of rebels, a land that I will judge! Pursue, kill, and completely destroy them, as I have commanded you,"

OK CL ... if you could just point me in the the right direction to Merathaim and the people of Pekod and I'll be on my way.

christians are EVIL.

Local church has sign saying believe in be'jesus and you will recieve eternal life.

I dont want eternal life. Give me hell fire any day rather than follow a religeon who have spent 2006 years murdering, torturing non believers.

Oh so ONLY christians can Love people.

I do not want what you describe as 'hell fire' but I also don't follow a religion that has spent torturing and murdering non believers. You can target it as much as you want, protest and march, attend rallies etc, but it makes no difference...what are you going to do to make this world a better place to live...spouting your hate will not do this, sorry my friend, you shout at everyone yet do nothing about it.

Oh so ONLY christians can Love people.

That is not what I said, there is loving people in all religions, what I was meaning is that whatever religion you choose or do not choose, the heart of the matter is that you cannot love anyone, the problem is not with other religions, it is that you have no inner peace and rest.

Shieldsy said...

"christian bombs have killed thousands in Iraq and Afghanistan"

By your logic that must mean you are a Christian then CL ... because the bombs are dropped by our national government in your name just as much as anyone elses. Or when national governments go to war are they only doing it on behalf of the Christians in the population. If they are then I must have missed that press release.

I happen to believe this government has inacted the most anti-christian legislation for many generations. But don't let my opinions get in the way of your blind prejudice.

Do you not find it ironic that the only one who ever goes on about death, or murder or destroying people is yourself?

Anonymous said...

CL, if you want hell fire, then that's what you're going to get.

If you're reading and referring to the NAB, you're reading an extremely flawed "translation" of the Bible, anyway. It's not at all accurate.

Run from God, misconstrue His Word all you want, and eventually you'll reap the consequences.

I'd rather, in love, see you saved.
