  1. "Star / Stars" is an interesting word study, they appear exactly 66 times (63 verses) that I can see: Gen_1:16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. Gen_15:5 And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be. Gen_22:17 That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed
  2. It's about contrast, both to the eye or cameras (which are worse) you can't see incredibly faint things and bright things at the same time. There are reports of those in space being able to see many more stars under the right lighting conditions [no other bright objects in field of view, eyes adapted] but that would fall under the category of everything and everyone being a grand conspiracy so would not be considered by skeptics. On a dark night try to look at the stars with a bright flashlight shining in your eyes... to get an idea of the effect. Also (partially) why there are
  3. There is no 'flat' earth model that cohesively reconciles even a handful (usually no more than one at a time) of the most basic of observations, instead providing an endless litany of contradictory pseudo-scientific explanations that prey on the ignorance and or gullibility of the victim / adherent. The amount of Gaslighting, Conflation and Logical Fallacy that takes place in the movement is quite frankly astonishing. I thought the discussion had run it's course (here) but apparently not... as expected. [just ask if you want an invite to the members only area, to those who can't se
  4. By 'telling people', you mean the instance of him telling the person (Nicodemus) in which he also, in that conversation, describes the forthcoming required event (Calvary)? Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be? ... And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:9 ... 14-15 Men in the OT (that had to perform works) did sin but their regular sacrifice (works) temporarily paid (covered) sin until the ultimate (timeless) payment Jes
  5. Catholic artwork, Why do they do it? Occultism: Babylon, Egypt etc... gods with wings, sun god with wings and on and on; Also related to the non-biblical 'halo' symbolism with angels / 'saints' (as well as many other forms of sun-worship symbolism they are obsessed with, among other things).
  6. Interesting shoe designs, made me think of some verses that might be appropriate: Thou hast enlarged my steps under me, that my feet did not slip. Psalms 18:36 Mine eyes are ever toward the LORD; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net. Psalms 25:15 He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. Psalms 40:2 For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling. Psalms 116:8 I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I might keep thy wo
  7. 1 - You generally can't, similar to as @Peter said best option is to just be a living example of it, which will be possibly remembered in the future; it is especially difficult with family because of how familiar they are with the old man, many times viewing your new life and sanctification as hypocrisy (if they see you still occasionally struggle) or self righteousness if you have gotten / been blessed with victory over certain sins, not understanding your intentions getting defensive viewing it as an attack on the way they want to choose to live. That said, you can always keep an eye /

  9. At first glance I was originally excited, thinking some good work was possibly going on in the area; The fact it was so dramatic, and contrary to my experiences (seemed fake / staged) raised my suspicions, those suspicions were seemingly confirmed looking into his history / channel videos, finding some pretty bad stuff (detailed in that post). Seemed like a sensational media (attention seeking) stunt, which made sense researching him and discovering:
  10. 1 Chronicles 21:1-17 (also 2 Samuel 24:1-9) I think the short answer is Pride, perhaps also Ambition for future (un-sanctioned) conquest / expansion, David (having been allowed to be tempted) trusted and or took pride in Israel's own strength / numbers for protection, and not God. As we know... greater numbers, strength / weakness of armies are irrelevant to God in terms of victory (or defeat) in war, or for safety etc... And five of you shall chase an hundred, and an hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight: and your enemies shall fall before you by the sword. Levitic
  11. @radorn @Piper LT Was discussed here, I noticed it because that is my area and it was a very bizarre video(s) seemed totally staged to me as I've never seen anything like that in my 35 years in this area.
  12. Your system may be different but here you can generally leave a note for the postman, or call them and basically give them permission to leave it by the door or by the mailboxes, whatever; which I guess removes their liability for lost / undelivered packages and than they will leave it.
  13. I'm from Vancouver (obviously) and there're quite a variety of immigrants here, my closest friends have been foreigners: Vietnamese, Indian, Russian, Polish; their struggle to learn the nuance of English (even after many years, decades of experience) has always been amusing to me: Obviously the language of the KJV is on another level, than what we commonly use, which is why even as a native English speaker it took me a while to get used to, it is so different and enjoyable to me, so specific, so precise. Modern English writing has become so lazy, totally devoid of the exposition / vo
  14. In my early transition at first I was agnostic at best, thinking there are all these god's either one is right or they are all wrong. Obviously God revealed himself to me, Jesus Christ (drew me to himself). And than I was like ok... what about all these denominations and versions and it was the same thing, either one is right or they are all wrong. And, rather than a denomination, determining (being shown) it was the KJV itself that had authority and not any denomination(s). I started to trust it, in faith. (not because I, at that point, had intellectually proved it).
