Being Thankful
Category: Teaching Topics

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
Time is GOD'S way of preventing everything from happening all at once. 

 

BEING THANKFUL      
"Enter HIS gates with praise and thanksgiving, HIS courts with acclamation. Praise Him! Be thankful to HIM! Bless HIS Name!" [Psalms (Tehillym) 100. 4 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

 

The majority of occurrences of the word thankful or thanks in the OLD COVENANT are translated from the Hebrew word "yadah" which means to hold out the hand, to extend an empty hand, revere, or worship with extended hands

 

A truly thankful person is one who has come to grips with certain realities about his need before the GREAT GOD of all flesh.  The ALMIGHTY ONE commands us to be thankful.  It was a duty given to the Levitical priests "to be present every morning to praise and extol the LORD, and at evening too." [1 Chronicles (Dibre Hayamin Alef) 23. 30 Tanakh, Kethuvim]   When the HOLY ONE, blessed be HE, brought the Israelites back to Jerusalem in the times of Nehemiah "he began with thanksgiving, with prayer and praise" [Nehemiah/Nechemah 11. 17] and the Levites "led the thanksgiving psalms and songs." [Nehemiah (Nechemah) 12. 8 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

 

The Hebrew word used by the OLD COVENANT writers is a picture of one holding out an empty, thankful hand to the ETERNAL ONE.  There is nothing we can bring to GOD that causes HIM to bless us.  Our empty hands picture our inadequacy to accomplish the will of the EVERLASTING FATHER (in our own strength), or to provide for our own needs or the needs of others. 

 

The prophet Jonah "prayed to the LORD his GOD from the belly of the fish" [Jonah/Yonah 2. 1] and even in this loathsome dilemma proclaimed, "but I, with loud THANKSGIVING, will sacrifice to YOU; what I have vowed I will perform. Salvation is of the LORD." [Jonah (Yonah) 2. 9 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

 

Nebuchadnezzar had to learn this lesson.  Although he had been warned to repent of his arrogant, boastful, self-importance he still uttered, "There is great Babylon, which I have built by my vast power to be a royal residence for the glory of my majesty!" [Daniel (Danyel) 4. 30 Tanakh, Kethuvim] This great king was driven out by OMNIPOTENT GOD and caused to eat grass "like the cattle and beasts of the field" — and when his senses returned, Nebuchadnezzar realized that even a mighty king's hands are empty unless the MIGHTY KING of kings fills them. 

 

In our generation, people deny their dependency upon their MAJESTIC HEAVENLY CREATOR.  "Because that, when they knew GOD, they glorified HIM not as GOD, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish hearts were darkened." [Romans 1. 21]   Our witness to this darkened world is to live with the reality of our own empty hands extended in thankfulness to "THE ONE" WHO supplies ALL our needs.  "O LORD, YOU open YOUR hand, they (and we) are well satisfied." [Psalms (Tehillym) 104. 28 Tanakh, Kethuvim] How majestic is HIS ways in all the earth! 

 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
 We gratefully acknowledge and adore YOU, O INVINCIBLE LORD, our GREAT GOD, that YOU are our CREATOR and PRESERVER, the ROCK of our life and the SHIELD of our help. We give thanks to YOU for our lives which are in YOUR hands, for our souls which are ever in YOUR keeping, for YOUR wondrous providence and for YOUR continuous goodness, which YOU bestow on us day by day. Truly, YOUR mercies never fail and YOUR lovingkindness never ceases. Therefore we forever put our trust in YOU.
 Giving thanks brings the light forth instead of hiding it, it is shared, not spoken in secret, but shouted with joy. For this is not about us. In the light of others we see the love GOD has shown in our lives and praise HIM for the love HE shows. HIS love is the LIGHT that shines out of us.  Be filled with thanksgiving in your heart shining bright into the lives of those who so desperately need the love, peace and joy that burns brightly in you.

 Thank YOU LORD for WHO YOU are — MASTER DESIGNER, FATHER, REDEEMER, LOVER — WHO loves us deeply even when we fail to love those around us. And thank YOU for the opportunities YOU give us each day to show the world that we follow YOU and YOU alone...for we too are aliens and strangers in this world.
 “I will praise YOU, O LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all YOUR wonders.” — Truly, giving thanks is too precious to be reserved for just one day a year!
Our love and blessings to each of you,
Rabbi Del & Rifkah  

 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem, is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes.  Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

Thankful Beyond Measure
Category: Teaching Topics

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
Suffering is always a preparation for greatness. 

 

THANKFUL BEYOND MEASURE      
"In everything give thanks; for this is the will of GOD in CHRIST JESUS for you." [1 Thessalonians 5. 18] 

 

This can be one of the most challenging passages in HOLY SCRIPTURE when suffering and  adversity surrounds us.  Yet it is a command along with supporting instructions: "Be filled with the SPIRIT...giving thanks always above all things to GOD THE FATHER in the NAME of our LORD JESUS CHRIST." [Ephesians 5. 18, 20]  "Rejoice in the LORD always. Again I will say, REJOICE! Let your gentleness be known to all men. The LORD is at hand. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to GOD; and the peace of GOD, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through MESSIAH Y’SHUA." [Philippians 4. 4 - 7] 

 

Even in tribulation we are to be thankful and give glory to our LOVING LORD GOD — "glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope." [Romans 5. 3 - 4]  This is done by faith alone, following the perfect example of the HUMBLED & EXALTED MAN OF SORROWS. "Let this mind be in you which was also in MESSIAH Y’SHUA." [Philippians 2. 5] 

 

No matter the trials we must endure, we will never have to suffer as did THE GALILEAN when HE, "for the joy that was set before HIM endured the cross, despising the shame." [Hebrews 12. 2]  We are instructed in the OLD COVENANT — "If you have run with the footmen, and they have wearied you, then how can you contend with horses? And if in the land of peace, in which you trusted, they wearied you, then how will you do in the floodplain of the Jordan?" [Jeremiah (Yirmeyah) 12. 5 Tanakh, Nevi'im]  Simply stated...if a little pain overcomes you, how can you endure the cross? 

 

"For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal." [2 Corinthians 4. 1 - 18]  Knowing the just shall live by faith, we should not hide ourselves in times of trouble from the MIGHTY INTERCESSOR. 

 

And through faith, we can face any situation knowing they are in accordance to HIS OWN purpose and grace.  Then we, who are loved with ALMIGHTY GOD'S inestimable everlasting love know with full assurance, it is GOD WHO works all things out for our good, for those who love HIM. [Romans 8. 28] 

 

So we can rejoice more and more giving thanks and praise continually to the TRUE & LIVING GOD WHO not only loves us, but does all things amazingly and beyond measure.

 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
 We give thanks with a grateful heart remembering and praising our MIGHTY CREATOR. To those who know the SAVIOR thanksgiving and worship are our way of life every day.  HEAVENLY FATHER, teach us to emulate YOUR oWN grace and mercy. Cause YOUR truth to fall upon our hearts like seed upon fertile ground. And, may we learn to love YOUR Law ever more deeply and to find in it the beauty of holiness. Amen
 Happy & Blessed Thanksgiving! Truly, giving thanks is such a cherished conversation with the PRECIOUS ONE WHO redeemed us, do it every day, you will be continually grateful that you did!
 “Give thanks to the LORD, call on HIS NAME; make known among the nations what HE has done. Sing to HIM, sing praise to HIM; tell of all HIS wonderful acts. Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is GOD'S will for you in CHRIST JESUS.” 1 Thessalonians 5:18  

 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem, is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes.  Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

Forever Endures
Category: Teaching Topics

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
The key to the treasures of the ETERNAL ONE is reverence. 

 

FOREVER ENDURES      
"The LORD abides (endures) forever." [Psalms (Tehillym) 9. 7 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

 

This world and the heavens are going to all pass away completely as everything decays and dies — "they will perish…grow old like a garment." [Hebrews 1. 11]   But GOD, the ALMIGHTY CREATOR, is eternal!  "May the glory of the LORD endure forever; may the LORD rejoice in HIS works." [Psalms (Tehillym) 104. 31 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

 

The great name of the KING OF GLORY will never change.  "May HIS NAME be eternal; while the sun lasts, may HIS NAME endure. Men shall be blessed in HIM; all nations shall call HIM blessed." [Psalms (Tehillym) 72. 17 Tanakh, Kethuvim]   Likewise, HIS righteousness and character is everlasting, "Wealth and riches are in HIS House, and HIS righteousness lasts forever. HE is gracious, compassionate, generous and righteous." [Psalms (Tehillym) 112. 3 - 4 Tanakh, Kethuvim]   Psalms 136 declares the MIGHTY ONE'S ever-enduring mercies and concludes  with wonderful assurances and promises.  "O, give thanks and praise to the GOD OF HEAVEN! HIS mercy and steadfast love is forever." [Psalms (Tehillym) 136. 26 Tanakh, Kethuvim]  Since the HOLY ONE'S perfect righteousness and everlasting great mercy will last forever, we should continually thank and praise HIM with every breath in our being. 

 

The wondrous, life-giving WORD OF GOD will also endure.  This is confirmed in both OLD & NEW COVENANTS — "The LORD exists forever; YOUR WORD stands firm in heaven. YOUR faithfulness is for all generations; YOU have established the earth, and it stands." [Psalms (Tehillym) 119. 89 - 90 Tanakh, Kethuvim]  "All flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of the grass. The grass withers, and its flower falls away, but the WORD OF THE LORD endures forever." [1 Peter 1. 24 - 25] 

 

GOD'S love, so rich and pure, will always endure, eternity will be filled with HIS great love.  "For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of GOD which is in CHRIST JESUS our LORD." [Romans 8. 38 - 39] 

 

We know for certainty that we shall also live forever, because the HOLY ONE is forever. "His (David's) seed shall continue forever, his throne, as the sun before ME; as the moon, established forever, an enduring witness in the sky. Selah" [Psalms (Tehillym) 89. 36 - 37 Tanakh, Kethuvim]   "The world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of GOD abides forever." [1 John 2. 17]   O the riches we, who serve the LORD OF GLORY, have in abundance awaiting us; and the great joy in serving and loving HIM even now.

 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
Return to the HOLY ONE OF JACOB. In returning to HIM you will find rest and be saved and receive quietness, confidence and strength.  So, let us celebrate the ties of love and faith that bind us in the LORD Y’SHUA ha'MASHIACH, the GREAT GOD of our salvation.  Give thanks to the LORD, call on HIS NAME; make known among the nations what HE has done. Sing to HIM, sing praise to HIM; tell of all HIS wonderful acts. 1 Chronicles 16:8-9
Give thanks to the LORD, for HE is good; HIS love endures forever. Psalm 136:2  As you reflect on our many blessings give thanks to the ONE WHO has provided so richly for us.  

 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem, is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes.  Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

Glorified Vision
Category: Teaching Topics

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
To prevent irritating others, be as vague as possible, but do it with enthusiasm. 

 

GLORIFIED VISION      
"In the midst of the seven lamp-stands ONE like the SON OF MAN, clothed with a garment down to the feet and girded about the chest with a golden band." [Revelation 1. 13] 

 

This is a sanctuary scene, a priestly scene, as viewed in the OLD COVENANT Tabernacle and Temple.  The ANCIENT OF DAYS is seen inspecting the Church (HIS people) just as Aaron inspected the candlestick in the Holy Place — noticing the oil supply, the condition of the wicks, and snuffing the carbon, if necessary, so the lights would burn bright.  The lamp-stands represent testimony"You are the light of the world" and "judgment begins at the HOUSE OF GOD" — so MESSIAH Y’SHUA trims and refines HIS Church into perfection. 

 

"Clothed with garments down to HIS feet" symbolizes dignity and honor.  The LORD Y’SHUA, in a priestly robe, is a Priest; a royal garment, a King; in a judicial attire, a Judge (Prophet).  This robe is made of linen which represents righteousness (to be holy).  The Holy Garments of linen are the mitre (head-dress, turban), broidered coat, girdle and the breeches. Symbolically, they are worn to show:  the Mitre — holiness of thought; Broidered Coat — holiness of heart; Girdle — holiness of service; Breeches — holiness of flesh. 

 

The robe was seamless indicating no beginning and no ending.  The hem of the blue (heaven’s color) robe had alternating bells and pomegranates.  Pomegranates with their multitude of seed indicating fruitfulness.  The bell, which is gold, has a tongue in it.  Gold for DIVINE, a tongue for telling the testimony. The bells ring clearly because of the pomegranate between each bell.  Our LORD JESUS wore the fruit and bells spiritually all around the hem of HIS seamless garment as HE walked upon the earth.  HE had a clear ringing testimony which was backed up by the fruit of HIS life

 

The JEWISH TALMUD proclaims: "The Bells said to the fruit-bearing TreesWhy do you not make any noise?The Trees replyOur fruits are sufficient advertisement for us." 

 

"The Golden Belt around HIS breast" speaks of HIS righteousness; the gold, HIS Divine Glory.  As the RIGHTEOUS JUDGE, Y’SHUA will usher in the "Day of Vengeance." [Isaiah/Yeshayah 63. 1 - 4]   Because HE is the SON OF MAN, HE will judge all humanity.  "For as the FATHER has life in HIMSELF, so HE has granted the SON to have life in HIMSELF, and has given HIM authority to execute judgment also, because HE is the SON OF MAN." [John 5. 26 - 27] 

 

"HIS head and HIS hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and HIS eyes like a flame of fire." [Revelation 1. 14]  "HIS head and hairs, white as wool" illustrates JESUS' fatherhood and patriarchal dignity and wisdom as the ANCIENT of DAYS.  The LORD Y’SHUA ha'MASHIACH is all this!  In HIM is all the full divine perfections of GOD'S nature embodied.   In HIM is all the hidden treasure of divine wisdom and spiritual illumination. 

 

"Eyes as a flame of fire" shows intelligence - burning, all penetrating intelligence. . . power to read secrets, to bring hidden things to light, to warm and search all hearts at a single glance.  Nothing is hidden from HIM WHO is OMNISCIENT GOD. 

 

"HIS feet were like fine copper, as if refined in a furnace, and HIS voice as the sound of many waters." [Revelation 1. 15]  "HIS feet were like burning copper refined in a furnace."  Copper represents judgment.  "I will glorify the place where MY feet rest." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 60. 13 Tanakh, Nevi'im]  "HIS feet shall tread down HIS enemies; they shall tread the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of ALMIGHTY GOD." [Revelation 19. 15; Isaiah/Yeshayah 63. 1 - 6] 

 

"Voice as the sound of many waters" show that HE is powerful, yet altogether lovely.  "See that you do not refuse HIM WHO speaks, for if they did not escape WHO refused HIM WHO spoke on earth, much more shall we not escape if we turn away from HIM WHO speaks from heaven WHOSE VOICE then shook the earth." [Hebrews 12. 25; Jeremiah/Yirmeyah 25. 30-31; Psalms/Tehillym 29] 

 

"HE had in HIS right hand seven stars, out of HIS mouth went a sharp two-edged sword, and HIS countenance was like the sun shining in its strength." [Revelation 1. 16]   "In HIS right hand seven stars" — here the LORD JESUS is seen upholding and sustaining the ministry of HIS Church. [Isaiah/Yeshayah 41. 10]   "Out of HIS mouth...a sharp Two-Edged Sword" this is HIS OWN WORD, the LIVING, ACTIVE, POWERFUL WORD OF GOD, by which HE shall judge the Church. [Hebrew 4. 1 2]   "HIS countenance as the sun shines in HIS strength." MESSIAH Y’SHUA is the GREAT CREATIVE SOURCE from which all light comes.  HE is the "SON OF RIGHTEOUSNESS." [Malachi/Malakhi 4. 2]   Y’SHUA is "the LIGHT of the Eternal City." [Revelation 21. 23; 22. 5] 

 

"And when I saw HIM, I fell at HIS feet as dead. But HE laid HIS right hand on me saying to me Do not be afraid; I am the FIRST and the LAST." [Revelation 1. 17]   Here the glory of MESSIAH'S presence is too great — words cannot describe HIM — HE is so overwhelming to see, John is completely prostrated as though dead.  But, John is reassured by the words of the LORD — Fear Not! John's fears and ours are forever gone when we realize MESSIAH Y’SHUA'S three-fold revelation of HIMSELF: "I am HE WHO lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death." [Revelation 1. 18]  "I am the FIRST and LAST" — now MESSIAH shows HIS deity. [Isaiah/Yeshayah 41. 4; 48. 12; Revelation 22. 13]  "I am HE WHO lives and was dead, and behold, I AM ALIVE FOREVERMORE." [Revelation 1. 18]   The LORD JESUS CHRIST is the LIVING ONE WHO tasted death on our behalf, Who was victorious over all and came forth CONQUEROR & GLORIOUS KING. 

 

"I have the keys of death and hell." The LORD Y’SHUA holds the keys (authority, power over) of hell. [Revelation 1. 18]  Y’SHUA, the KING ETERNAL, opens and none can shut, HE shuts and none can open.  While death still holds the bodies of the Saints temporarily, their spirits are no longer in Hades, but in the heavenlies with JESUS CHRIST THE LORD.  The gates of hell cannot prevail against the Church in the LORD Y’SHUA ha'MASHIACH.  Hallelu'YAH! 

 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
 We give thanks and praise to the LORD GOD our GUARDIAN & REDEEMER. May the love of your HOLY NAME and YOUR Law be rooted deep in our soul and quicken every heart to draw nearer to YOU. May our knowledge of YOU rise like the morning dawn as our longings and aspirations reach out toward a higher goal. May our faith be unshaken and our heart undismayed as we labor and wait for the fulfillment of YOUR prophets of old. And, may YOUR Law be established in the hearts of men and that YOUR children unite in peace and love to serve YOU, our FATHER, the ALMIGHTY AWESOME GOD. Amen!
 There are no accidents; everything that happens to us is purposeful and for the best. We can feel secure knowing that we are wrapped in GOD’S loving embrace. All praise to GOD ALMIGHTY!
 Together, let's prepare our hearts to celebrate and exult in GOD’S amazing love, grace and mercy by continually giving HIM thanks and look to the birth of Y’SHUA and triumphantly proclaim: “Thanks be to GOD for HIS indescribable gift!” 1 Corinthians 9:15  Hearts are truly thankful, when we thank GOD continually for HIS blessings; and when we do we are changed inside.  

 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem, is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes.  Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

Sin & Confession
Category: Teaching Topics

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
Smart is when you believe only half of what you hear. Brilliant is when you know which half to believe. 

 

SIN & CONFESSION        
"All unrighteousness is sin." [1 John 5. 17] 

 

People come up with different definitions as to what sin is, and the most common definition is "missing the mark" or a "failure to live up to an expected standard." However, this definition fails to take into account that when the mark is missed, something is hit. 

 

The Apostle John simply defined sin as "lawlessness" and strongly advises believers not to do such things. John then goes on to inform us what we are to do if we do sin.  "My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the FATHER, JESUS CHRIST THE RIGHTEOUS. And HE HIMSELF is the PROPITIATION for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world. Now by this we know that we know HIM, if we keep HIS commandments." [1 John 2. 1 - 3] 

 

"If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us." [1 John 1. 8]  "If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His worD is not in us." [1 John 1. 10]  Sin is a choice, we have the potential to obey or disobey.  And it is possible for a believer to loose his rewards.  "Look to yourselves, that we do not lose those things we worked for, but that we may receive a full reward. Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of CHRIST does not have GOD." [2 John 1. 8 - 9]   "Are you so foolish? Having begun in the SPIRIT, are you now being made perfect by the flesh? Have you suffered so many things in vain?" [Galatians 3. 3 - 4]  "Whoever endures TO THE END shall be saved." [Matthew 10. 22; 24. 13] 

 

"Whoever abides in HIM does not sin." [1 John 3. 6]   Do not play games with your soul.  Don't be deceived by your own emotions, images or ideas of what you think the ETERNAL LORD GOD means — Read what HE says; Accept what HE commands; then Prepare yourself to know HIM personally and fully (trust and obey).  "Awake to righteousness, and do not sin." [1 Corinthians 15. 34] 

 

"If we walk in the light as HE is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of JESUS CHRIST HIS SON cleanses us from all sin. If we confess our sins, HE is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." [1 John 1. 7, 9]   Hold on to the ENDURING ONE, HE is faithful to save. 

 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
 Most blessed are YOU, O GOD, YOU are hidden from the eyes of all the living and are beyond the comprehension of all creatures. The mind of genius cannot comprehend more than a broken fragment of YOUR glory. The tongues of poets and sages falter as they seek to express YOUR incomparable wisdom and splendor. Yet though YOUR greatness surpasses our understanding, we feel YOUR nearness and are overcome with wonder and with awe as we behold the signs of YOUR soon-coming. 
 May the grace of our LORD Y’SHUA ha'MASHIACH be with your spirit as you prepare to stand before the WONDROUS KING.  

 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem, is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes.  Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

What Each Area of the Site is Meant For: Blogs - This is your personal space. This is where you should post thoughts that are not intended for extensive further discussion. Observations from personal study and events that have occurred in your life belong here. Unless your post ends with questions or makes it apparent that discussion is to follow, it should probably be a blog. As discussed later, blogs are limited to those who hold to historic Christian beliefs. Forums - This is for open discussion relating to the topic posted. Dialogue is encouraged to stay on topic, so if a side conversation begins, open a new discussion. This is where the majority of the activity has taken place so far. Topics should remain general in nature, while in depth discussion on narrow topics should take place in groups. Groups - This is a place to congregate with people who have similar interests and positions in order to have open discussion. The conversation in here is not required to remain on topic, so it is more ready to follow rabbit trails. This is where you should go if you want to gather with a particular kind of theologian. Before initiating a new group, we ask that you consider posting a question in the discussion forum area to see if there is enough interest to justify a separate group. The reason we encourage such action is that, in the event that a group is inactive for 6 months or more, the moderators of Scriptural Studies reserve the right to close down and delete the group due to inactivity. Events - This is available to anyone that wants to post an event that you think the members of Scriptural Studies may be interested in. Contact Denis, Rabbi Del, Rifkah, or Marti for more details on advertising. Our Attitude of conduct: In case you missed them on your way in, take some time to become acquainted with the conduct we expect on this site. You may find our Attidudes on the main forum page. Our purpose at Scripural Studies is that the conversations move in a Gracious way. We define Gracious in the following way: 1) Not closed minded 2) Not self-promoting 3) Not characterized by mass amounts of cut-and-paste proof-texting 4) Not characterized by mass amounts of cut-and-paste from other places 5) Irenic 6) Not slanderous 7) No spamming 8) Perpetual venting bitterness 9) Not confusing or disruptive But in all things you'll be welcome here
