Question: If The Unrighteous Are Going To Be Spared And Take Part In The Second Resurrection Why Are There Verses In Scripture That Emphasize Unrighteousness Will Be Punished Also?

 

Donald Bohanon: The term unrighteousness when referenced in scripture is  just another term for sin.And as it pertains to destruction in association with that sin.. its normally in the context of very serious and or very offensive and abominable sin.

 

In other words on occasion the term unrighteousness is used to describe wickedness. It’s also important to note that although the Bible makes a distinction between the unrighteous and the wicked in Isaiah 55:7..not all the unrighteous will be spared.

 

That will be determined by how they conducted themselves in this life,in relation to how they lived and what they practiced,supported and promoted.And the mercy they showed to others.Mankind as a whole will be reconciled back to God.But that does not apply to the wicked,ungodly and or hater of God/abominably evil.

 

Which is actually a different level and class of sin and or rebellion.In short, some times unrighteousness when mentioned in scripture means sin/unrighteousness.And sometimes unrighteousness when mentioned in association with destruction, means wickedness and or ungodliness.If that makes sense.

 

I’m sure you will probably find the original term sin/iniquity translated to unrighteousness in English in certain instances, from the original Greek and Hebrew text and other texts.But determining what kind of sin it is, very offensive,abominable, or basic sin, can normally be determined by the punishment associated with the sin/unrighteousness. Simply put ungodliness/wickedness will be judged harshly and punished harshly.And results in spiritual  death when judged. 

 

The Bible says them that had the law shall be judged by it and them that had not the law shall perish or be destroyed without  it.Because the conscience and thoughts will bear witness against them.

 

And will be used to excuse or accuse the man or woman who didn’t know the truth or have God’s word or his law.Romans 2:11-16 .In other words your thoughts and conscience will be used to determine if you knew your actions were wrong or not.As opposed to direct or written revelation alone being used to determine it.

 

That’s also supported and consistent with Matthew 5:27-28 where Christ states that a man  who is married and looks on a woman with her in his heart has committed adultery with her already in his heart.In other words his thoughts are bearing witness against him and accusing him.In this case no actions are necessary to be deemed guilty the thoughts bear witness and accuse.As is emphasized in Romans 2:11-16.

 

There are numerous additional verses in scripture which validate and support  Romans 2:11-16 as well. Mankind as a whole will be reconciled back to God but the wicked will be destroyed.And when you understand it,they really are just a small minority in the bigger scheme of things.

 

The term “the unrighteous” on the other hand is often mentioned as it relates to the term “sinner”.The term “sinner” and “the unrighteous” are often used interchangeably  and often used to describe one another.Although there are instances where the term “sinner ” is used to describe the wicked as well.But normally the terms wicked,ungodly and hater of God,are used in the same context to describe a very evil, rebellious and defiant individual.

 

The hater of God,the ungodly and the wicked,would be considered a different, higher level, and class of evil individual…1 John 5:16-17.And all those terms mean the same thing.According to scripture this individual is appointed for destruction.Deuteronomy 7:10,Psalm 1:5-6,Psalms 21:8-9,Psalms 92:6-7,Proverbs 11:21 ,Malachi 4:1-3,Matthew 13:49-50,2 Peter 2:4-9,Romans 1:30,Romans 1:32.To suggest all men will be saved is totally unbiblical  and is based on taking certain Bible verses out of context.And is a gross misrepresentation of God and his word.


Deuteronomy 7:10
King James Version (KJV)
10 And repayeth them that hate him to their face, to destroy them: he will not be slack to him that hateth him, he will repay him to his face.

 

 

 

Psalm 1:5-6
King James Version (KJV)
5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

6 For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

 

 

Psalm 21:8-9
King James Version (KJV)
8 Thine hand shall find out all thine enemies: thy right hand shall find out those that hate thee.

9 Thou shalt make them as a fiery oven in the time of thine anger: the Lord shall swallow them up in his wrath, and the fire shall devour them.

 

 

Psalm 92:6-7
King James Version (KJV)
6 A brutish man knoweth not; neither doth a fool understand this.

7 When the wicked spring as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish; it is that they shall be destroyed for ever:

 

 

Proverbs 11:21
King James Version (KJV)
21 Though hand join in hand, the wicked shall not be unpunished: but the seed of the righteous shall be delivered.

 

Malachi 4:1-3
King James Version (KJV)
4 For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.

2 But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.

3 And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the Lord of hosts.

 

 

Matthew 13:49-50
King James Version (KJV)
49 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,

50 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

 

 

2 Peter 2:4-9
King James Version (KJV)
4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;

5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;

6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;

7 And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:

8 (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)

9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:

 

Romans 1:30
King James Version (KJV)
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

 

Romans 1:32
King James Version (KJV)
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.

 

 


I think it’s also important to note that anytime  there’s disagreement about certain topics in the Bible between different groups…in regards to whether all will be saved, or some will be destroyed.If the Bible appears to be saying based on some verses, all will be saved or reconciled  back to God.

 

While some are emphasizing based on the overwhelming, preponderance of scripture,that the wicked will be destroyed.The only logical, biblically supported conclusion to come to,is there has to be some gray area involved.And that gray area is the unrighteous man. He isn’t righteous but he isn’t wicked either.He’s somewhere in between.And when you study scripture that becomes clear.This is the individual who will live under Christs rulership primarily.

 

The Bible says in Psalms 1:5-6 that the sinner will not stand in the congregation of the righteous.But notice.. neither is the spiritual death penalty applied to that person as it is with the wicked. We see that it’s emphasizing in these verses the wicked will not stand in the judgment.

 

Which means the wicked will be destroyed.It also says the sinner/unrighteous man or woman will not stand in the congregation of the righteous.

 

In other words, it’s simply emphasizing the unrighteous/the sinner will not be destroyed, neither will they be born into the spiritual family of God at that time.Why? And where does that leave the unrighteous/sinner? Well they will be resurrected,shown mercy, and allowed to live under the rulership of Christ.And that second resurrection is emphasized in Ezekiel 37:1-14.

 

This resurrection begins with Israel but will eventually include all peoples who ever lived.The wicked will  participate in the third and final resurrection emphasized in Revelation 20:11-15.This is the resurrection to destruction.The Bible emphasizes in verse eleven that no place is found for these individuals.And the ensuing destruction emphasized in the verse fifteen further validates this.As well as numerous other verses too many to include in this short article.


 

Ezekiel 37:1-14
The hand of the LORD was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones,
[2] And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry.
[3] And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest.
[4] Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD.
[5] Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:
[6] And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
[7] So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone.
[8] And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them.
[9] Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.
[10] So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.
[11] Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.
[12] Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.
[13] And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves,
[14] And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the LORD have spoken it, and performed it, saith the LORD.


As an example…either the group emphasizing all men will be saved.Or the group emphasizing the wicked will be destroyed.Are misinterpreting verses in scripture and are not taking into account the logical possibility that there may be some gray area involved.

 

Most things pertaining to life are never simply black and white.There is normally some gray area involved.And when you study scripture you begin to see that applies to the Bible in some instances as well.What’s most important is that you always follow what God’s word is clearly  saying and never men.You have to always follow God’s word regardless of how many people are following  an established belief.Lest you fall into condemnation.And it results in your destruction.All sin has produced the physical death penalty.But not all sins produce spiritual death when judged. Some sins result in spiritual death when judged and some do not 1 John 5:16-17.


1 John 5:16-17
King James Version (KJV)
16 If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it.

17 All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death.

Question:How Does A Person Insure Their Name Is Written In The Book Of Life Which Is Mentioned In (Revelation 20:15)

 

Donald Bohanon: Good question.A person can insure their name is written  in the book of life simply by living righteously or in accordance with God and Christ instruction which is to follow the commandments and the word of God as a whole in conjunction with faith and doing good works.Notice Psalms 69:27-28.Here King David moved by the spirit of God to write it…equates being written in the book of life/the living with righteousness or living righteously.And conversely outlines that iniquity/sin or living contrary to the Bible and it’s commandments, can insure you are blotted out of the book of life.

 

I know and have heard some false unlearned ministers equate being written in the book of life with a simple verbal acceptance of Jesus Christ as ones savior.And as the only qualification for being written in the book of life.

 

While providing no biblical proof, in it’s proper context, to validate that claim.When you understand that true acceptance of Jesus Christ is determined by obedience to the instruction and guidelines Christ outlines and commands us to follow Psalms 69:28 becomes just another example of the Bible interpreting,validating, and confirming itself.


Psalm 69:27-28
King James Version (KJV)
27 Add iniquity unto their iniquity: and let them not come into thy righteousness.

28 Let them be blotted out of the book of the living, and not be written with the righteous.


As opposed to unlearned individuals applying their own personal interpretation to scripture, while providing not an ounce of biblical proof to substantiate those claims.And in so doing leading  many astray.You will be recorded in the book of life based on your obedience to God’s commandments and word in conjunction with faith and by doing good works /showing love and mercy.

 

Revelation 20:11-15 also emphasizes a persons works/behavior will determine whether they are written in the book of life or not.Which is also supported by Psalms 69:28.Again.. just another clear example of the Bible interpreting itself.You will be  judged by the books in the Bible and your obedience to what’s commanded by God and Christ in those books will determine if your name is written in the book of the living/the book of life.


Revelation 20:11-15
King James Version (KJV)
11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.

12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

 


The wicked/hater of God/ungodly will be resurrected to destruction which is emphasized in Revelation 20:11-15 .Also notice Psalms1:5-6.Where it states here the wicked shall not stand in the judgment or survive the judgment.Not to mention Romans 1:32 where it emphasizes the judgment of these individuals is in the context of  the death or destruction of them.In Revelation 20:11-15 ..the statement “and there was found no place for them” as well as the ensuing punishment in verse fifteen clearly shows this is a resurrection to judgment and destruction for the evil actions and behavior of the individuals being judged at that time.Destruction (which is also supported by numerous other verses in scripture)as opposed to a resurrection to live under the rulership of Christ, while being judged at that particular time.Which some of the Churches of God teach.For more information listen to Judgment Day:The Day Of Wrath-Redone.

 

We are in agreement on everything else with the exception of God’s punishment on the wicked.It’s also important to note that being written in the book of life doesn’t necessarily mean all those written in the book of life will be born into the spiritual family of God.But simply involves some being spared damnation when they are judged and allowed to live under Christ rulership. After which that person will  be required to develop perfect righteous character,be filled with the Holy Spirit, and then  ultimately be born into the spiritual family themselves..Revelation 21:7-27.The predestined,called, elect of God, are obviously written in the book of life as well but they will be Kings and Priests under God and Christs authority and will participate in the first resurrection. A chosen few to  be born into the spiritual family of God and rule over mankind with Christ when he returns.This why they are referred to as the first fruits of salvation.The rest of mankind will eventually be born into God’s family in time sequence.


Revelation 21:7-27
King James Version (KJV)
7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

9 And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife.

10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,

11 Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;

12 And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:

13 On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.

14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

15 And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.

16 And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.

17 And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.

18 And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.

19 And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald;

20 The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolyte; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.

21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls: every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.

22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.

23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.

24 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.

25 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.

26 And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.

27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

Question:If I were an open and proud lesbian or homosexual but helped save many lives by giving and helping many will God have mercy on me when I’m judged? 

 

 

Donald Bohanon:I will try to answer the question with a question.Let’s say for instance you gave to and helped thousands of people in your life but millions on the other hand are condemned and destroyed physically and spiritually as a result of you supporting,practicing and promoting corrupting,destructive, sexually perverse behavior, through lies, propaganda and false information.You support, practice and promote, the destructive, corrupting behavior, motivated by your selfish, perverted lust and sex addiction.

 

Do you think the fact that you helped thousands will override the fact that you were responsible for the destruction of millions of spiritual lives?Do you  think God is going to spare you because you helped thousands but were essentially responsible for destroying millions of physical and spiritual lives?

 

Now keep in mind one spiritual life is of much, much,much greater value than a physical life in God’s eyes because you can’t resurrect a spiritual life when it’s destroyed.Not discounting the abominable evil behavior the perversion produces if not repented of..Romans 1:26-32.To be effective acts of  mercy/love/kindness can never be used as a type of  atonement for continued abominable evil behavior.But as part of a sincere change in behavior.So you helped and saved thousands of physical lives but were instrumental in destroying millions of physical and spiritual lives?

 

By practicing  and promoting the behavior and even encouraging , manipulating and  forcing others to practice it and drawing them into the corrupting,destructive lifestyle and behavior.What verdict do you think God is going to render when he judges you?… Romans 1:32

Question:What Do You Think About Bishop T.D. Jake’s Do You Think He Is A False Minister?

 

Donald Bohanon: Let me see…..He rejects the bibles clear instruction for obeying God’s doctrine which is based on keeping the commandments and the word of God as a whole.Of which God says you don’t have the father or the son if you don’t follow or obey it… 2 John 9-11.

 

He also promotes the false,unbiblical, soul destroying doctrine of salvation by grace through faith only, which promotes and encourages hypocrisy and rebellion against the commandments and the word of God as a whole…Related Link. He promotes tolerance and acceptance of abominable sins such as homosexuality,bisexuality,lesbianism,etc..Isaiah 5:20-25.

 

Something which God’s word strongly rejects and says never to tolerate or associate with lest you be drawn into it (and as a society you will be) to your destruction.

 

Encouraging separation can be a good  thing under the right circumstances. This is what God in his love and wisdom understood when instructing Israel not to mingle with surrounding wicked tribes, instruction they didn’t heed,which ultimately resulted in them following the same sick practices of child sacrifice,sexual perversions,etc,that those surrounding wicked nations practiced,which eventually led to their destruction.

 

This is what normally happens when you associate with individuals who engage in questionable and very dangerous, corrupting and destructive behavior.You eventually begin to be influenced by the behavior and ultimately begin to practice it to your own detriment and destruction,no matter how corrupting,perverse and destructive it is..

 

This has historically been proven and is the case, and is further supported by reputable,reliable,unbiased studies regarding social behavior.And this is what these perverse groups,ie homosexuals and lesbians understand(association will eventually lead to participation).

 

Tolerance leads to acceptance.Acceptance leads to associaton. Association then leads to participation .And participation leads to destruction.That’s why they’re so aggressively promoting the call for tolerance,association,inclusion and acceptance.Because they understand tolerance eventually works its way into full blown participation.Which is and has always been their goal.Tolerance of evil,perverted,physically and spiritually destructive behavior is never a good thing, but quite the opposite.

 

We are to wholeheartedly accept and embrace people  from all backgrounds,races and nationalities,etc. But only as they separate themselves  from very dangerous and destructive sinful behavior that’s contrary to God and his word.Lest we ourselves be drawn into that very same behavior to our  destruction and detriment…Ephesians 5:10-13. This is what the bible commands.Love the individual,but hate and reject the sin/destructive behavior that’s contrary to God and his word.


Isaiah 5:20-25
King James Version (KJV)

20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

22 Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:

23 Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!

24 Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the Lord of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

25 Therefore is the anger of the Lord kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.

2 Corinthians 6:15-18

King James Version (KJV)

17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.

18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

 

 

Ephesians 5:10-13
King James Version (KJV)

10 Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.

11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.

13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.

 


Based on his stance and position on these issues, not to mention the many rumors surrounding his own secret behavior, which may be true based on his suspect mannerisms and  position regarding these issues,amongst other things.

 

I don’t think, I know without a shadow of a doubt he is a false representative of Christ in every sense of the word. He’s doing  much more  harm than good by promoting the false, soul destroying doctrine of salvation by grace through faith,and his liberal false form of Christianity.And to follow his counsel in regards to these issues will most certainly lead to physical and spiritual destruction when judged, as well as the destruction of the nation.He is a false minister through and through.He’s actually doing Satan’s work under the deceptive cloak of a false love.God knows who he is and a day of reckoning is coming.The truth will be exposed in the judgment.And to misrepresent God and his word and bear false witness against God’s true servants carries with it serious consequences… 2 Peter 2:1-3,James 3:1,Jude 14-15.The truth of the matter is he shouldn’t be teaching  because he doesn’t know or understand the bible and he doesn’t know what he’s taking about.

 

And I would personally wholeheartedly reject his counsel in relation to the things that pertain to God and what he requires and desires,loves and hates,likes or dislikes.Or his thoughts about true servants of God that he doesn’t know at all and knows nothing at all about .And I’m convinced he’s not the man he portrays himself to be.

 

In other words he’s not who you think he is.He’s a liar and a deceiver,who speaks well and deceives the people by good words and fair speeches…Romans 16:17-18. He teaches  lies contrary to the word of God to appease the people so as not to offend anyone and  to keep the money flowing in.

 

But you can’t serve God and not offend anyone because the truth will always hurt and offend.That’s actually a decision you have to make when serving God, do you want to please men or is your focus on pleasing God?If your focus is on speaking lies to please men and to appear righteous in their eyes,and make more money you need to quickly find another profession.As he should.

 

Some may say he and other ministers who teach false doctrines give to the poor,etc.But the problem is they keep much more than they give.I think its safe to say, and I have also read reports that suggest charities of the sort keep upwards of 90% of the funds that are raised and only disperse about 10% to those in need. But in reality it should be the other way around 90% should be given to the poor and 10% or so should be kept to pay expenses and salaries.That’s one of the reasons most of these ministers are not transparent about their earnings and how those earnings are dispersed.But yes he is a false representative of Christ/false minister who is doing much more harm than good based on the biblically contrasting, dangerous and destructive,information he’s teaching and disseminating. He’s essentially creating sinful, rebellious hypocrites, based on the false and damaging doctrine, information and the false liberal form of Christianity he teaches.And hypocrisy results in condemnation as well…Job 27:8. 


2 Corinthians 11:13-15
King James Version (KJV)

13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.

14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

 

 

2 Peter 2:1-3
King James Version (KJV)

2 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.

3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

Question: Have You Ever Tried To Hit On The Actress Stacey D.?

 

Donald Bohanon: That’s an interesting question and  I would be curious why you would ask it.I would respond to that by asking did she make that claim?And if she did that is not the truth at all.I actually sent her a facebook message a couple of  years ago with a three word question which was “what’s the catch?” Now she may have completely misinterpreted that question to mean something it didn’t. 

 

I intentionally blocked out the last name for privacy reasons. But anyone she knows and has been possibly peddling that false rumor to will know who I’m talking about.Let me also clarify I don’t know her personally and don’t have anything against her I’m just setting the record straight.

 

The motivation behind the question was Donald Trump running as president and the fact that she being a black woman and a conservative Trump supporter had me curious and wondering. So the question was meant to find out why she chose the conservative platfrom or party and why she was supporting Donald Trump.I was curious to know if she had some kind of inside information into the goings on of the campaign and his political objectives.

 

And that’s all it was, but she never responded back so I never messaged her again.I eventually took it upon myself to investigate and find out what his real  motivations were.

 

So that’s the whole story in a nutshell and is really nothing to talk about.If she is claiming it was a come on she would be wrong, and if so I’m not sure how she could come to that conclusion based on that simple three word question with no sexual or suggestive overtones or undertones and with no follow up.I actually still have that one message I sent if anyone wants to see it.

Question:Is It A Sin Or Inappropriate To Like A Females Picture On Facebook?

 

Donald Bohanon: It depends if you are married and if you follow the like with some kind of overt sexual suggestion and or sexual advance,but to like a females photo would not be considered inappropriate if you are not married.And If you don’t have the wrong  intention as in sexual lust in your heart,etc.

 

I have female facebook  friends and have liked several pictures but I do it for two reasons primarily.One is to let the woman know I think it’s a nice picture because that can be uplifting because women are emotional creatures and feel good about themselves when you do like their picture.And that in turn can have a positive impact especially if the woman is having a bad day or feeling down.

 

I also do it to direct them to links that I post. But I have never approached a woman inappropriately or in a sexual manner and none of those friends can tell you that unless they’re lying. And if they do make those claims against anyone don’t believe it unless they provide proof to substantiate it because in this age of social media and technology there would be all kinds of  electronic footprints and proof to substantiate those claims.

 

But if you are liking photos as a form of compliment and admiration,or even if you compliment them verbally and you are not married and aren’t motivated by sexual lust,then no I don’t consider that inappropriate nor is it condemned by scripture.

Statement:  Christianity which uses the bible as it’s foundation. Same bible, where God gave commandments on how to conduct slavery: Leviticus 25:44-46,Exodus 21. Luke 12:47-48. The bible that has ludicrous laws on rape Deuteronomy 22:28-29, and countless example where God sent his people to commit horrible violent genocides. I’m not dissing you for having faith because I have faith & the bible has beautiful righteous passages I was brought up to believe that the bible is the truth the whole truth and nothing but the righteous truth, but after reading passages like these I couldn’t follow blindly anymore my spirit and good sense didn’t allow me to. Keep faith & be righteous, just don’t have dump blind faith in the light of logic and good sense. There is NOTHING wrong with 2 men agreeing to none deadly regulated battle where a referee is there to protect them, that’s why it’s a sport.

 

Donald Bohanon: Are you a Muslim ? Because you sound like one when you try to take scripture completely out of context and make the Bible look like a flawed, error filled, contradicting compilation of books, and God look like a cruel and heartless God something they regularly do.As well as one other group specifically.

 

Homosexuals also regularly twist and distort the word of God with lies, distortions of the facts and truth, with vitriol. In a deceptive effort to make God look heartless and uncaring, but nothing could be further from the truth. Slavery was as much a part of society at that time as cars are today.That’s just how it was.

 

They were necessary to perform many of the tasks Israelis and other nations were not capable of performing by themselves.But God gave Israel clear instruction on how to treat those slaves. Don’t mistake slavery under Israeli rule, for  slavery under Egyptian rule, or the slavery of  blacks under American rule,they were like night and day.

 

The term slave under Israeli rule in this context is more in line with a hired servant.Those servants were treated fairly, compensated with food and shelter, and allowed to leave at a set amount of years. Some of those servants chose to remain servants under Israeli rule because they had it so good, as opposed to becoming slaves for other more cruel and brutal nations.

 

Where they were provided what ever amount of food those nations chose to give them, beaten terribly in many cases, worked to exhaustion, never allowed to leave, and even killed in many cases.

 

In some cases God gave Israel the choice of making some slaves,slaves for life.But only as way to insure those same evil and barbaric tribes and nations were not able to rebuild and pick up where they left off. Eventually doing the same abominable evil acts that caused them to go into slavery in the first place.Preventing the rebirth of the widespread evil was God’s motivation in giving Israel that choice.

 


But in light of all the evil many of these conquered tribes had done, God still instructed Israel not to treat those slaves harshly and reminded them they were slaves at one time in foreign lands, and to remember how they were treated, and to not treat their servants the same way, but with compassion and fairness.


Exodus 21

New International Version (NIV)

2 “If you buy a Hebrew servant, he is to serve you for six years. But in the seventh year, he shall go free, without paying anything. 3 If he comes alone, he is to go free alone; but if he has a wife when he comes, she is to go with him.

 

 

Exodus 23:9

New International Version (NIV)

9 “Do not oppress a foreigner; you yourselves know how it feels to be foreigners, because you were foreigners in Egypt.

 



Leviticus 25:45

New International Version (NIV)

45 You may also buy some of the temporary residents living among you and members of their clans born in your country, and they will become your property.

 

 

Leviticus 25:53

New International Version (NIV)

53 They are to be treated as workers hired from year to year; you must see to it that those to whom they owe service do not rule over them ruthlessly.



God only instructed  nations to conquer other nations when those nations that God had leveled the decree against,were guilty of burning their own children alive as sacrifices to demons they called God’s.Raping the women of other tribes and killing them.They would also take the infants of the peoples they had conquered, grab them by the ankles and dash them against stone walls until their little frail infant bodies disintegrated, all while the parents of those infants watched helplessly


Isaiah 13:16-18

New International Version (NIV)

16 Their infants will be dashed to pieces before their eyes;
their houses will be looted and their wives violated.
17 See, I will stir up against them the Medes,
who do not care for silver
and have no delight in gold.
18 Their bows will strike down the young men;
they will have no mercy on infants,
nor will they look with compassion on children.



Isaiah 13:16-18 Is an example of God sending the Medes,against Israel, a nation notorious for their barbarism and their lack of compassion for infants and children.As well as sending them against other nations who were regularly engaging in the practice of child sacrifice and who had conquered other nations and showed no mercy to their children.

 

So God responded in kind, by rendering to them the same punishment for their abominable evil, and payment for what they themselves had done when conquering other nations. God ultimately punished the Medes for their evil and barbarism as well.Above is an example of God sending them against Israel because Israel was eventually corrupted and began to follow the same sick practices of Idol/Demon worship and child sacrifice amongst other wicked practices that the surrounding wicked nations practiced.


Deuteronomy 12:29-31

King James Version (KJV)

29 When the Lord thy God shall cut off the nations from before thee, whither thou goest to possess them, and thou succeedest them, and dwellest in their land;

30 Take heed to thyself that thou be not snared by following them, after that they be destroyed from before thee; and that thou enquire not after their gods, saying, How did these nations serve their gods? even so will I do likewise.

31 Thou shalt not do so unto the Lord thy God: for every abomination to the Lord, which he hateth, have they done unto their gods; for even their sons and their daughters they have burnt in the fire to their gods.

.

 

 

Jeremiah 19:4-5

 “Because they have forsaken Me and have made this an alien place and have burned sacrifices in it to other gods, that neither they nor their forefathers nor the kings of Judah had ever known, and because they have filled this place with the blood of the innocent and have built the high places of Baal to burn their sons in the fire as burnt offerings to Baal, a thing which I never commanded or spoke of, nor did it ever enter My mind;

 

 

Jeremiah 32:35
“They built the high places of Baal that are in the valley of Ben-hinnom to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire to Molech, which I had not commanded them nor had it entered My mind that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin.

 

 

Ezekiel 16:20-21
“Moreover, you took your sons and daughters whom you had borne to Me and sacrificed them to idols to be devoured. Were your harlotries so small a matter? “You slaughtered My children and offered them up to idols by causing them to pass through the fire.

 

 

Ezekiel 23:37
“For they have committed adultery, and blood is on their hands. Thus they have committed adultery with their idols and even caused their sons, whom they bore to Me, to pass through the fire to them as food.

 

 

2 Kings 17:31
and the Avvites made Nibhaz and Tartak; and the Sepharvites burned their children in the fire to Adrammelech and Anammelech the gods of Sepharvaim.

 

 


Psalm 106:36-42

King James Version (KJV)

36 And they served their idols: which were a snare unto them.

37 Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils,

38 And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood.

39 Thus were they defiled with their own works, and went a whoring with their own inventions.

40 Therefore was the wrath of the Lord kindled against his people, insomuch that he abhorred his own inheritance.

41 And he gave them into the hand of the heathen; and they that hated them ruled over them.

42 Their enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under their hand.



God was greatly angered by this demonic barbarism and instructed Israel and other nations to punish those demonic barbaric nations without mercy,to render to them the same punishment that they themselves had visited on others. As far as I’m concerned they had it coming times twenty.And that is simply the act of a loving, just God, and not the heartless God that you try to portray  him as.

 

I would really be angry if God had done nothing.A God who doesn’t punish that type of evil is the real definition of an uncaring God in my opinion.And God is the giver of life and he can take it when ever he chooses, and all those nations that God leveled that decree against(Israel included) because they eventually began to follow the same sick practices as the nations around them,all had it coming and were guilty of doing things that would make what Hitler, Pol Pot, Stalin, and Idi Amin did look like acts of kindness by comparison.

 

I run across Muslims and Homosexuals all the time who try and twist,and distort scripture just like you are doing and take it completely out of context to paint a false picture about God in an effort to discredit God, Christ and Christianity, simply because what it teaches is contrary to and justifiably condemns the lifestyles they live, and false religion they follow. Instruction that rightfully and justifiably forbids certain twisted, filthy, warped self destructive practices and behaviors, that they have become enslaved and shackled by.

 

And stop twisting Deuteronomy 22:28-29 to make it sound like rape, that verse is in the context of fornication and that is all it means.It’s saying if a man sleeps with a virgin he is not married to, he is to pay her father fifty shekles of silver and then to marry the young lady.

 

The term rape in the NIV version is in the context of the man sleeping with the young lady without the fathers consent, which is considered rape in their culture.Because the father has complete authority over the daughter.The daughter can’t sleep with a man or marry a man without the fathers consent.To sleep with the daughter without the fathers consent is viewed as rape even if the daughter consented, it would still be viewed as rape in their culture.

 

It’s essentially like taking the fathers property without his consent.Which would be considered a form of rape and theft.In other words  you have no right to her unless the father gives her to you,in marriage that is.But it also applied in the rare case actual rape would occur.Fifty shekles of silver and marriage for life would be considered a very harsh punishment.But the verse is in no way a condoning of rape by God.

 

It is not in the context of forced sexual relations on a  girl, but in the context of consensual sexual relations out of  wedlock! And by the way all false prophets and teachers will be punished by being cast into the lake of fire, so please for your sake don’t willfully twist Gods word and lie on him to deceive others and make a point. 


2 Peter 2:1-3

King James Version (KJV)

2 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. 2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. 3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not


The Bible is the truth and nothing but the truth that becomes quite evident when you put it in it’s proper context.But when you twist and distort it because of your lack of knowledge and understanding of it, it begins to morph into something that it is not, based on your own lack of understanding and knowledge, and gross biblical misinterpretation and misrepresentation.

Statement:  First of all no, I am defiantly not a Muslim, I have as many issues if not more with Islam and the Quran then I have with the bible.
If anything I’d have to say I’m a Christian, but I’m sure you’d judge me & say I’m not. I was born into a very strict evangelic home, and I’m happy about that. I accepted Christ into my life at a pretty young age then was baptized in my later teens.
I’m also very analytic, curious and logical person who asks many questions, which suites me well in my career as an engineer.

During my young adulthood I would attend my congregations bible studies & one day decided I would read the bible from start to end and study it myself.
That’s when I started struggling with many verses and passages in the bible. Things that would not jive with my spirit, and my good sense.

First let’s take on “context”.

 

 

First Rape:
———
I could maybe give you that one, the scripture never explicitly condoned rape.
But what do you call fornication with the daughter or sister of the man you just killed.
Do you really believe these woman wanted to “fornicate” with the man who just killed their loved ones and burnt their homes.
Why wasn’t God’s commandment not to touch the women. The man who “fornicated” with these woman should have been punished.
Instead The woman is punished and forced to marry the man who killed her loved ones sacked her belongings and “fornicated with her”.
All I’m going to say is that the bible leaves many important unanswered questions & creates ambiguities on this subject, which is VERY dangerous.
Ask most women they would consider this being raped.

 

 

Genocide:
———
War is war and I don’t disagrees that the description of what these nations would do was demonic & barbaric.

Verses like you quoted: Psalm 106:36-42
37 Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils,
38 And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood.

But then then these verses:
Deuteronomy 2:34 And we took all his cities at that time, and utterly destroyed the men, and the women, and the little ones, of every city, we left none to remain.
Deuteronomy 3:6 And we utterly destroyed them, … utterly destroying the men, women, and children, of every city.

How is it demonic & barbaric to spill innocent blood of their children but justified murder with Gods people genocide children. It’s ok as long as its not in sacrifice for an idol???
Killing children is killing children. I though u said u hated violence. I call it genocide & I hate it, it’s evil and I hope it never happens again in history.

 

 

Slavery:
——–
This one is close to my heart. First of all I noticed how you picked and choose what renditions of the bible to pick your verses from.
Which is another point that bothers me about the bibles; How many times it’s be rewritten to fit peoples ideals.

 

 


I see you picked the New International Version (which I has also owned) to quote the verses you carefully picked and chose on SLAVERY not servitude!
Let me tell you something you already know. You don’t OWN a servant, you don’t OWN your servant’s children, you don’t BEAT your servant!
Wrong is wrong, evil is evil & taking another humans freedom is abysmal in whatever CONTEXT or time is abysmal.
I don’t care if it’s colonial slavery or not, slavery is slavery!
For the bible not to clearly condemn & state this to me is mind boggling.
There are so many verses on slavery I could quote but I will only quote one from the same version of the bible you used:

 

 

Leviticus 25:44-46
“Your male and female slaves are to come from the nations around you; from them you may buy slaves.
You may also buy some of the temporary residents living among you and members of their clans born in your country, and they will become your property.
You can bequeath them to your children as inherited property and can make them slaves for life, but you must not rule over your fellow Israelites ruthlessly.

As someone who’s descendants endured the atrocities of slavery I can’t look past this.
I tell you today if anybody ever tries to enslave my family, children, loved ones or myself. I will without hesitation lay my life or take my slavers life fighting from my freedom.  And I pray that god would find me just in my decision.

In conclusion,
My point is too many Christians judge others using the scripture which a full of holes and they do so hypocritically.
Saying that putting this verses in context justifies them is extremely dangerous and the reason why people have used the bible and other books to justify their crimes and atrocities.
I’m just a man and I don’t know much. I don’t know the why of many things but got gave me sense and logic so I use it. Please don’t call me a liar I never lied throughout this discussion.

 

 

Donald, we could continue this discussion elsewhere if you like. I can’t really have these discussion with people in my congregation as I believe they would immediately judge me and I wouldn’t feel comfortable anymore.

 

 

 

Donald Bohanon: Here we go again. 1. Rape?: There is nothing to support that statement you are just lying where is the Bible verse? You haven’t provided anything to substantiate what you said and if you do I’m certain you are taking it out of context.Provide the verse and I will put it in it’s proper context.

 

I’m certain you are taking it out of context like homosexuals do, often taking one verse or two and completely twisting it and taking it out of context in an effort to paint a false distorted  picture of God.Now there are accounts of rape and fornication in the Bible but  God has never condoned either, and as long as you falsely attack God and the  Bible I am going to expose your lies.  

 

And yes I will say you are not Christian the truth of the matter is I really think you are a homosexual because they are  one of the primary groups that twist God’s words like you are doing now. Being so twisted and evil themselves,but yet deceptively play the righteous role like you are doing. “Don’t listen to God and his word!, take heed too and follow me!, because I’m so righteous that I have a love and righteousness that supersedes God’s love and the Bible’s definition of love” is what you are saying in so many words. “God is evil but I am good, humble, righteous, loving, and caring, don’t look to God as a righteous example, look to me” is essentially what you are saying.

 

But that’s what that filthy perversion does, makes you hate God and righteousness and exalt yourself above God. Which is the very attitude and character of Satan himself. Further confirmation of how powerfully led by Satan, homosexuals and lesbians are. It’s been my experience that people who do that are some of the most wicked,twisted, perverted individuals on planet earth, and live lives completely contrary to God’s word and what he defines as righteous and good.

 

Just examine them closely and thoroughly you will see it. And my response to that is get the heck out of here with that self righteous hypocrisy, being absolutely filthy but presenting a false image of righteousness,humility, mercy and love. But living completely contrary to God’s law of love,the commandments, and his word.

 

Which is the only source and standard by which proper moral behavior should be defined or judged. Get the you know what (I almost slipped up and said something else) out of here, with that eeeeeeeevil, self righteous, hypocrisy.

 

2. Genocide?: God calls the shots, he is the creator of everything, man and all other creations and life forms, his actions are always just and good. The brutality and barbarism of these surrounding tribes and nations was simply demonic, and that is not surprising considering the fact they worshiped demons,so much so they sacrificed their own sons and daughters to demons, they were possessed by devils!

 

Below is an example of Israel engaging in the practice something they inherited from other wicked nations who’s customs they eventually adopted.The same nations God sent Israel against because those nations practiced that same behavior.But Israel, to God’s sadness and dismay, began to follow the same practices as is outline below.So God eventually had to destroy Israel as well to put and end to the practice.


Deuteronomy 12:29-31

King James Version (KJV)

29 When the Lord thy God shall cut off the nations from before thee, whither thou goest to possess them, and thou succeedest them, and dwellest in their land;

30 Take heed to thyself that thou be not snared by following them, after that they be destroyed from before thee; and that thou enquire not after their gods, saying, How did these nations serve their gods? even so will I do likewise.

31 Thou shalt not do so unto the Lord thy God: for every abomination to the Lord, which he hateth, have they done unto their gods; for even their sons and their daughters they have burnt in the fire to their gods.

 

 

Jeremiah 19:4-5

 “Because they have forsaken Me and have made this an alien place and have burned sacrifices in it to other gods, that neither they nor their forefathers nor the kings of Judah had ever known, and because they have filled this place with the blood of the innocent and have built the high places of Baal to burn their sons in the fire as burnt offerings to Baal, a thing which I never commanded or spoke of, nor did it ever enter My mind;

Jeremiah 32:35
“They built the high places of Baal that are in the valley of Ben-hinnom to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire to Molech, which I had not commanded them nor had it entered My mind that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin.

 

 

Ezekiel 16:20-21
“Moreover, you took your sons and daughters whom you had borne to Me and sacrificed them to idols to be devoured. Were your harlotries so small a matter? “You slaughtered My children and offered them up to idols by causing them to pass through the fire.

 

 

Ezekiel 23:37
“For they have committed adultery, and blood is on their hands. Thus they have committed adultery with their idols and even caused their sons, whom they bore to Me, to pass through the fire to them as food.

 

 

2 Kings 17:31
and the Avvites made Nibhaz and Tartak; and the Sepharvites burned their children in the fire to Adrammelech and Anammelech the gods of Sepharvaim.

 

 

 

Psalm 106:35-39

King James Version (KJV)

35 But were mingled among the heathen, and learned their works.

36 And they served their idols: which were a snare unto them.

37 Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils,

38 And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood.

39 Thus were they defiled with their own works, and went a whoring with their own inventions.


When you invite devils in they come right in, and take total control.Which was obvious considering the way these people were behaving, engaging in bestiality (having sex with animals).Sacrificing their own sons and daughters to demons by cutting them open and burning them alive.These people were demon possessed, they were no longer thinking for themselves, demons were in full control of them, and that was quite obvious based on the way they were behaving.

 

Their destruction was justified, turning the cheek in an environment where blood thirsty barbarians  ruled was tantamount to suicide. These crazed individuals showed no mercy to anyone  not even infants! God’s decree of an eye for eye was necessary to prevent the evil from continuing and spreading to the destruction of more infant lives and lives in general.And to punish them for the same evil they had heaped on other peoples and nations. At a time when most of these surrounding nations lived by no laws, evident by their savagery and barbarism.

 

I doubt you would be so angry and disagreeable if it was your wife being gang raped, or your infant son or daughter being dashed to pieces, bust wide open, right before your  eyes.Or burned alive right before your eyes. And keep in mind this was a regular practice.

 

Whatever environment a child is  raised in, they will grow to be shaped by that environment. Not only was God  punishing these wicked tribes for the fact that they had killed infants and  children themselves,their own sons and daughters at that,commanding that they should be punished in the same way, an eye for an eye. But he was also destroying a future generation that would have  eventually grown up to be as evil and twisted as their fathers and mothers if not  more. Elimination of  a seed of evil doers was necessary in God eyes.

 

And if you  think those children wouldn’t have grown up to be products of their environments, knowing nothing but what they had been taught by their parents,…. ruthlessness,barbarism, mass murder,satan worship, child sacrifice, bestiality, etc. Brutal, barbaric and  ruthless, you are just clueless and fooling yourself. And these acts were so prevalent and widespread that they eventually corrupted Israel and Israel began to  follow the same practices.All of it was evil and barbaric and God punished all of  them to put an end to the steady growth and progression of the evil, and he was justified in doing so. It was an act of love in every sense of the word when you understand what he actually prevented, in terms of future child sacrifice, mass murder,gang rape, savagery, bloodshed, and barbarism.

 

 

3.Slavery?: I haven’t picked and chosen verses, the Bible is consistent with its description in terms of the way those servants were to be treated, fairly and with compassion, there you go again twisting scripture  taking verses out of context and lying on God.God even  informed Israel if they were to beat a servant and break bones or harm them that servant was to be compensated or set free.

 

Even though those nations had ruled over their slaves  and Israelites ruthlessly…Exodus 1:13-14. God instructed Israel  not to rule over them ruthlessly or with rigor. In the case of some cruel and brutal nations who ruled over their slaves without an ounce of compassion God instructed Israel they could make them slaves for life if they so chose.A just and righteous decree in my opinion considering how treacherously and heartlessly those barbaric tribes dealt with nations.

 

God knew if he allowed them to go free and rebuild they would pick up where they left off , engaging in the same ruthlessness and brutality which included sacrificing and killing their own sons and daughters,and destroying and pillaging other nations and countries motivated by nothing but evil, greed and lust,something which God was trying to prevent.But God still instructed Israel not to rule over them with rigor.


Exodus 23:9

King James Version (KJV)

9 Also thou shalt not oppress a stranger: for ye know the heart of a stranger,seeing ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.

 

 

Leviticus 25:43
King James Version (KJV)

43 Thou shalt not rule over him with rigour; but shalt fear thy God.


So what Bible are you reading? You are  obviously twisting the Bible again and taking it out of context, provide the verse and I will put it in its proper context. And here are the same verses below in the King James version what’s the difference? It is saying the same thing I only provided the NIV version because I knew it would be easier to interpret for those who are not familiar with the King James version. The NIV version is a translation into plain english not an altering of scripture, there is no difference in the meaning. Don’t try to paint a false picture to ignorant onlookers, that it is somehow different, it is not, it is just a translation not an altering of the verse.



Exodus 21:2

King James Version (KJV)

2 If thou buy an Hebrew servant, six years he shall serve: and in the seventh he shall go out free for nothing.

 

 

Exodus 23:9

King James Version (KJV)

9 Also thou shalt not oppress a stranger: for ye know the heart of a stranger,

seeing ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.

 

 

Leviticus 25:45

King James Version (KJV)

45 Moreover of the children of the strangers that do sojourn among you, of them

shall ye buy, and of their families that are with you, which they begat in your land: and they shall be your possession.

 

 

 

Leviticus 25:53

King James Version (KJV)

53 And as a yearly hired servant shall he be with him: and the other shall not rule with rigour over him in thy sight.


I felt it important to address this mans blatant lies, and gross distortions.misinterpretations  and misrepresentations of scripture. He is displaying all the characteristics of some one who is homosexual or bisexual and simply seeks to discredit God and his word, through lies and distortions of his word.

 

Because they hate it because it condemns the physically and spiritually destructive behavior  they love and are shackled by. They seek to exalt themselves above God and his  word as a true righteous examples, while being absolutely evil, filthy and perverse, and living completely contrary to God’s word. Many examples of twisted homosexual behavior rarely reported by the liberal mainstream prove how sick  and demented they are, twisted and rendered deranged by perverted lust.

 

This is what they normally do and after they have drawn others into that physically and spiritually destructive lifestyle through lies,deception, false information and false science,in an effort to further their twisted agenda, for the full acceptance of the perverse lifestyle. Now, he may claim  he is not homosexual or bisexual, but that is something they do also, twist God’s word and claim to be straight, but everything that he is doing is consistent with what homosexuals/bisexuals do all the time. His lies, and gross distortions of God’s word has hate for God, and pro homosexual or practicing homosexual/bisexual written all over it.


Romans 1:26-32

Romans 1:30

King James Version (KJV)

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


You sound ridiculous claiming to be a Christian rejecting the very word of God.True Christians strive to live by every word of God, not reject it’s validity and authority. How can you be a Christian but hate the very word of God itself which is for mans benefit, not to hurt him? You lie on God and twist his word to create a false image of him? That is not an example of a Christian or love for God, but a clear and obvious hate for God.


Matthew 4:4

King James Version (KJV)

4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

 

Luke 4:4

King James Version (KJV)

4 And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.


I have no desire to communicate with you in any other capacity either. I really see right through you. And two men cant walk together unless they be agreed.


 

Amos 3:3

King James Version (KJV)

3 Can two walk together, except they be agreed?

 

 

Luke 6:46
King James Version (KJV)

46 And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?


 

We don’t have anything in common why would I want to speak to you in a different setting or elsewhere? It will never happen. I’m convinced you are motivated by perverted sexual lust as opposed to sincerely seeking the truth.You lie on God and twist his word and make him out to be something that he is not, while at the same time subtly exalting yourself, tooting your own horn as a true righteous example, separate from the Bibles definition of righteousness. Which is ridiculous, evil, self righteous, proud, satanic, and contrary to scripture.

 

We have nothing in common I have no interest in getting to know you in any capacity under any circumstances, or on any level.You lie and slander God and twist and distort his word? You are not a Christian you are an enemy of God, evidenced by your hate for his word and your tendency to quickly twist and distort it to present a flawed, distorted perception of God and his word.


John 14:23-24

King James Version (KJV)

23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.

 

 

2 Corinthians 6:15-17

New International Version (NIV)

15 What harmony is there between Christ and Belia? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? 16 What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said:
“I will live with them
and walk among them,
and I will be their God,
and they will be my people.”
17 Therefore,
“Come out from them
and be separate,
says the Lord.
Touch no unclean thing,
and I will receive you.”

 

 

1 John 3:10

King James Version (KJV)

10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.


I don’t hate you though, and I wish you the best of luck, we are simply going in completely different directions and have nothing in common. You are lake of fire bound with that evil, slanderous, deceptive attitude.

 

You seek to establish your own self righteousness separate from how the Bible defines righteousness, which is like filthy rags to God for all the obvious reasons.  I seek God’s righteousness that comes only by faith, reading and obeying the commandments and word of God, and acknowledging  him as supreme ruler and authority, who knows, sees and understands, much more than man will  ever know in a million lifetimes.

 

I actually feel sorry for you because I know your fate if you don’t change that behavior. And by the way the Bible has always encouraged the righteous to judge but in righteousness. Which means the person who is judging must be righteous themselves. Judging is an important part of the Christian faith because it is meant primarily to expose evil for what it is, before it spreads to the destruction of multiple millions of clueless,conforming followers. And the Bible is not full of holes,nor does it contradict itself, men simply intentionally or mistakenly grossly misinterpret it much like you are doing now.

 

Because of either their hate for it because it exposes and condemns behavior  they love and practice which is contrary to the Bible. Or because of their lack of knowledge and understanding of it. Also lacking the understanding of the importance of allowing it to interpret itself, but rather applying their own personal interpretation to it, which screws it up, distorts it, and leads to gross biblical misinterpretation every time.Something you have clearly exhibited yourself  today,as it relates to many of your ignorant ill informed statements.But all the best to you.I will pray for you.

 


John 7:24

King James Version (KJV)

24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.

 

 

Ephesians 5:10-11

New International Version (NIV)

10 and find out what pleases the Lord. 11 Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.

Question: In The Article Entitled “Will A National Day Of Prayer Save America” You Provide A Verse In “Isaiah 66:2” Which Sates God Will Look To The Person Who Is Poor… Are You Suggesting God Will Not Work Through A Person Who Has Wealth?

 

Donald Bohanon: Good question.Let me clarify what I meant and what the verse means. To respond, absolutely not.That’s not what I meant at all.God has worked through several servants who in fact had great wealth. King David was one.King Hezekiah was another. Solomon was another.Abraham was another and so on.

 

The verse in Isaiah 66:2 is in the context of having a poor/contrite/meek/humble spirit as it relates to ones willingness to obey and fully submit to God ‘s doctrine,word and “his will” in the fear of God,while never allowing wealth,greed and lust to be an impediment to that.

 

As all the previously mentioned servants did,with the exception of Solomon who eventually fell off and was eventually corrupted by worldly lusts and desires.In fact God tells us in 3 John 1:2…. that above all else he wishes that his servants should prosper financially and or materially and be in good health,but only as their soul prospers or as spiritual growth takes place first.

 

But God insures us through his word in Psalms 37:1-6, that the servants needs will  be taken care of during the conversion process in terms of being fed.As they grow to delight themselves in the lord and become stronger and more grounded spiritually the desires of the heart will come.And understand that a desire and a need are different.A desire is something you want, a need is something you need and  or must have to exist.

 

The desires will come once the servant is at a place spiritually where they delight in serving God through complete adherence to doctrine and the bible as a whole, while eventually being filled with the holy spirit.Repent be baptized and filled with the holy spirit as the bible instructs us Acts 2:38 .

 

The bible also tells us  in Proverbs 28:13 that the person who hides their sin, or is not exhibiting that spiritual change and growth emphasized in 3 John 1: 2.. will not prosper spiritually or otherwise… which is supportive of  3 John 1:2… and vice versa.

 

Spiritual growth in knowledge and obedience to God is actually conducive to mental,emotional,physical and spiritual health,which is the context in which God meant it,in terms of being in good health, when you understand it.

 

God desires that all his servants should prosper and be in good health as they grow spiritually and fully submit to the doctrine,word and “will of God”.Emphasis on God’s will first and foremost.

 

But It’s important  to God that spiritual growth takes place first. In other words the servant should become steadfast in obedience,unmovable and unshakable,thoroughly versed in the doctrines and word of God first, before God will impart abundant material blessings.

 

Because if not the material blessings can and will be a snare and cause a spiritually under developed person to fall from their spiritual steadfastness.And eventually be corrupted and perverted by worldly lusts and desires,which can result in the spiritual death of  that person.Something God certainly doesn’t want to happen, and wants to prevent.Romans 11:22,Hebrews 6:6-8,Hebrews 10:26-31. 

 

It’s also important to emphasize not all material blessings come from God.Matthew 4:9-11,Luke 4:6-8. If the blessings are coming from God they will be based on or in the context of  that servants goodness,righteousness and or obedience… Proverbs 12:2,3John 1:2. Great question I hope this answers it.
