My statement was not about rather or not Jesus overcame the temptation. My statement was thatRead Moresatan did tempt Jesus. Lets deal with one idea at a time. Do we agree or disagree that satan did tempt Jesus--even though Jesus did not succumb to the temptations?

Here you say: <<<. It doesn't meant ion heaven, though that doesn't reallyRead Morematter&gt;&gt; &gt;&gt; Are you now suggesting that what the bible actually says does not matter, because you say it doesn't mean what it does say? Actually that is exactly what Jesus was talking about referring to taking for doctrine the teachings of man. The bible says one thing but man comes along and says: &quot;Well it really does not mean that, and it does not matter anyway....&quot;

Yes, I believe that was my original statement---that satan tempted Jesus, but Jesus didn't succumbRead Moret o it. Jesus was the object of temptation---and He, as the Son of Man, had to be. &quot;For we do not have a High Priest Who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted tempted as we are, yet without sin&quot;. (Hebrews 4:15) He did, however, pass the test, so we can &quot;come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in the time of need.&quot; THAT is the whole point. It's not just about semantics, but about reality. Remember, Jesus was fully God and at the same time, fully man. He laid aside His Divine rights temporarily while on earth (see Philippians 2:5-11) to conquer sin and death once and for all. Amazing grace! Regarding heaven statement, I said it is not worded that way in the Bible. Everything in the Bible matters, I never said it doesn't, just that in this reference, whether it said in heaven (which it doesn't ) or not was not the point, but a distraction and adding to the Word, which you should not do! I am not talking traditions of men, but realities that are found in the Bible---the Word sternly warns not to add to it, which you are doing by saying it says &quot;in heaven&quot;. The Truth is, Jesus said &quot;Why do you call me good? No one is good but One, that is God&quot;. That would be Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He is good!

Is that the one you say was buried in the earth for THREE DAYS and THREE NIGHTS—but can onlyRead Morec ount two nights and one day because he was buried FRIDAY NIGHT and rose on SUNDAY MORNING which is only two nights and one day?

Is that the same one who celebrate by LYING TO CHILDREN about a rabbit bringing dyed chicken eggs?Read MoreA nd is the day you talking about called EASTER which is the name of a pagan goddess condemned in the Old Testament?

This Easter you refer to, the one that comes on a different date of each year because of itsRead Moreconnect ion with the pagan spring rituals that were calculated to occur on the first Sunday after the first full moon after the spring equinox&hellip;.yes I am quite familiar with it.

He means some blacks, that is true for some but not all. We must be careful with how we word andRead Moreper ceive things. If everything you speak about talks about dividing among races then the agenda is racism. We were not made different colors to dominate over one another but to celebrate and bring uniqueness to the table. Every awareness isn't beneficial awareness some can cause strife with each other.

Of course there are no absolutes in creation. But black people have an annual income of more thanRead Morea trillion dollars. And since the evolution of integration black people have failed to spend in their own community to build communities like Rosewood and Black Wall Street were. I grew up on the tail end of segregation and I can remember when South Chicago street was lined with black businesses. Right now black people spend over 6 billion dollars a year on beauty products (most of it to less black looking) outside of their own community. Many of them will spend 2, 3 hundred dollars or a pair of shoes, but won't even have 20 or 30 dollars worth of book in their homes. To tell black people what their problem is, is not about dividing the races, it is about identifying our weaknesses. The same with my son. If he is falling short of his potential in taking advantage of opportunity--I will bring it to his attention. Don't you think that is the right thing to do?
