point of interest: according to mosaic law, jesus is in no way related to david, which is one of hte big prophecies for the messiah
update: dan can't read. nevermind.
further update: when i get around to it, i'll give my 'thoughts upon reading the bible' wrap up
http://www.churchofsatan.org/werewolf.html how to be a werewolf
np: soul asylum - runaway train
oops.. i thought it said mary and joseph were betrothed when she got pregnant. but upon rereading, they were espoused. nevermind
indeed. silly dan.
on a related note, i have a question for ya.. on my bible takehome final, there's a question i'm completely stumped on: why did abraham attempt to argue god out of smashing sodom [the whole, will you spare it if there's 20 rightous men deal], but put up no resistance to god telling him to sacrifice isaac?
because it was a test of abraham's faith in god's promise. god had promised him a son, and abraham had to have faith that god would fulfill that promise. basically, he knew that god would provide a sacrifice in place of isaac... or at least that's what god was testing. also, when god was going to destroy soddom and ghomorrah, abraham didn't have to do anything, this was a direct order from god to abraham... so it was testing his obediance.
at least that's what i learned in sunday school... not sure what your bible teacher wants to hear.
i don't think it really matters what he wants to hear if i can support my argument (i hope so anyway, cuz i don't agree with him on everything
whether it was a direct order or not tho, it seems to me like he's not being very obedient abotu sodom. god says he's gonna go smash the city and abraham starts arguing with him. if it's just that he didnt directly try to oppose it in any way, he could've argued about isaac too and still gone along with it grudgingly. the point of the question is he puts up resistance at all

heh, that's what i was thinking, but i can't place it because the wrong tune will not out, out damned tune from my head..
of course he was hot.. if you were god, would you want an ugly kid? nobody would worship hermes the homely..

cuz i want somebody to shove
i need somebody to shove
i want somebody to shove me
