The Field, The World
Category: Teaching Topics

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
Only those who repent of their sin will be forgiven.

 

THE FIELD, THE WORLD       
"And it became known to all those dwelling in Jerusalem as that field is called in their own language, Akel-dama, meaning Field of Blood." [Acts 1. 19] 

 

This field was fittingly called "akel-dama" so named as it was purchased with blood money.  Judas Iscariot, the betrayer of MESSIAH, purchased it (through the chief priests, following Judas' suicide) as they stated — "It is not lawful to put them (the pieces of silver) into the treasury, because they are the price of blood." [Matthew 27. 6]   Certainly, the blood Judas sold was "INNOCENT BLOOD." 

 

The loathsomely detestable "thirty shekels of silver" finalized this transaction.  However, this slave was none other than CREATOR GOD in the flesh, so the thirty pieces of silver, the amount set by the religious leaders, was the price for the sale of the MOST HIGH ONE. 

 

The Prophet Zechariah had acted out a prophecy of these strange events some 500 years before.  "So they weighed out for my wages, thirty shekels of silver the noble sum that I was worthy in their estimation." [Zechariah (Zecharyah) 11. 12 Tanakh, Nevi'im]  

 

According to prophecy and its fulfillment, Judas threw this "blood money" down in the Temple and went out and hanged himself.  The money was used to buy the Potter's Field to bury strangers in.  [Matthew 27. 5 - 10]   "Throw it to the potter that princely price they set on me. So I took the thirty pieces of silver and threw them into the HOUSE OF THE LORD for the potter." [Zechariah (Zecharyah) 11. 13 Tanakh, Nevi'im]  

 

These and many other details in these accounts constitute a remarkable type and fulfillment of prophecy, a testimony of divine inspiration and divine foreordination.   It is also a striking picture of the price of our salvation:  For the "Field of Blood" typifies that great field, the world.  The field is the world [Matthew 13. 38], and YESHUA ha'MASHIACH is the GOD/MAN WHO searched for the "treasure hidden in a field...and for joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field." [Matthew 13. 44]   All that the LORD YESHUA had, HIS life's-blood, was willingly shed that we, dead in our sins and hidden in the world of filth, might be "purchased with HIS own blood." [Acts 20. 28]    How very thankful I am that this MAN OF SORROWS, the ROCK OF OUR SALVATION cared enough to pay such a price to buy back such a worthless worm like me! 

 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
May the LIGHT of the HOLY ONE, blessed be HE, fill you with a yearning desire to submit to HIS inscrutable will and give you strength for your daily task as you share the knowledge and wisdom of the LOVING MASTER with others.
 O LORD GOD OF JACOB, YOU are my GOD...in the night how my soul desires and yearns for YOU.  I long for YOUR irreproachable judgments in the earth, for the world to learn of YOUR integrity, YOUR majesty and YOUR righteousness. Amen 

 

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.

Redeemed From Enemy's Hand
Category: Teaching Topics

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
Egotisms is nothing more than the antiseptic that dulls the pain of stupidity. 

 

REDEEMED FROM ENEMY’S HAND     
"Give thanks and praise to the LORD, for HE is good, HIS mercy is eternal! Thus, let the redeemed of the LORD say so, those HE redeemed from the hand of the enemy." [Psalms (Tehillym) 107. 1 - 2 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

 

There are four examples of GOD’S deliverance from particular problems that this hymn of praise surrounds. 
The first are the lost travelers who are out of provisions and far from a city:  "Some lost their way and wandered in the wilderness in the wasteland; they found no city to dwell in. Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them." [Psalms (Tehillym) 107. 4 - 5 Tanakh, Nevi'im]
 Second, there are the prisoners bound by their own rebelliousness: "Some lived in deepest darkness and in the shadow of death, captive in affliction and irons — because they rebelled against the WORD OF GOD, despising the counsel of the MOST HIGH. Therefore HE humbled their heart through suffering; they stumbled with no one to help." [Psalms (Tehillym) 107. 10 - 12 Tanakh, Nevi'im]
 The third, due to their own sins, are in physical illness: "There were fools who suffered for their sinful way, and for their iniquities they were afflicted. Their soul abhorred all manner of food, and they drew near to the gates of death. In their trouble they cried to the LORD, and HE saved them out of their troubles. HE sent HIS WORD and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions." [Psalms (Tehillym) 107. 17 - 20 Tanakh, Nevi'im]
  Forth, are the sailors who face shipwreck on stormy seas:  "Others go down to the sea in ships, who ply their business on mighty waters; they have seen the works of the LORD and HIS wonders in the deep. By HIS Word HE raised a stormy wind, which lifts up the waves of the sea. They mount up to the heavens and plunge down again to the depths, their soul melts from their troubles. They reeled and staggered like a drunken man, all their skill to no avail. In their adversity they cried to the LORD and HE saved them out of their troubles. HE calmed the storm so that its waves are stilled. Then they rejoiced when all was quiet, and HE guided them to their desired haven." [Psalms (Tehillym) 107. 23 - 30 Tanakh, Nevi'im]]   

 

This is just like the restless pattern during the time of the judges when "everyone did what was right in his own eyes, doing as they pleased." [Judges (Shofetim) 21. 25 Tanakh, Nevi’im]  As a result of their rebellious treachery, the SOVEREIGN ONE brought the people of Israel into captivity just as HE warned would happen to them. "If you or your descendants turn away from following ME and do not keep MY commandments and MY laws which I have set before you, but go and serve other gods to worship them, then I will cut Israel off the land which I gave them; I will reject the House which I have consecrated to MY NAME And Israel shall become a proverb and a byword among all peoples." [1 Kings (Melakhim Alef) 9. 6 – 7 Tanakh, Nevi’im] 

 

Solomon’s prayer of dedication for the Temple, has this same pattern [1 Kings 8. 22 – 61], for he knew that man’s tendency to rebel and forget the LORD’S provision when things go well, thus they inflict GOD’S righteous judgment.  But the ALL-KNOWING CREATOR has always used times of trouble to bring mankind back to HIMSELF.  HE truly is a GOD of grace, mercy, and love, desiring to forgive and restore those who repent and call on HIM for deliverance. 

 

This truth applies today, we still tend to rebel and the BELOVED SAVIOR remains long-suffering, willing to forgive and restore when one repents.  "The genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of MESSIAH YESHUA." [1 Peter 1. 7]  After HE tests us, may we come forth more than conquerors for HIS glory. 

 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
As we bid farewell to Sabbath at the Havdallah Ceremony, we use all of our senses: We taste the wine, smell the spices, see the shadow of candles, hear prayers and songs, touch family and friends as we wish them a Good Week.
 May the sweetness of Sabbath be felt all through your week! 

 

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.

Customs - Mizrach
Category: Teaching Topics

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
Faith is not believing that the ALMIGHTY can, it's knowing that HE will. 

 

CUSTOMS MIZRACH      
"The many peoples and the multitudes of the nations shall come to seek the LORD OF HOSTS in Jerusalem and to pray before the LORD." [Zechariah (Zecharyah) 8. 22 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

 

The "Mizrach" (rising of the sun — The East) is a Jewish custom to turn toward Jerusalem during the time of prayer.  "When YOUR people go out to battle against their enemy, by wherever way YOU send them, and they pray to the LORD in the direction of the City which YOU have chosen, and of the House which I have built to YOUR NAME, O hear in heaven their prayer and supplication and uphold their cause." [1 King (Melakhim Alef) 8. 44 - 45 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

 

In BIBLE days, worshipers in the Temple in Jerusalem faced the Holy of Holies; those in the City itself turned toward the Temple Court; those in Israel faced in the direction of Jerusalem; those outside Israel turned toward the Land of Israel. GOD’S Dwelling Places (Wilderness Tabernacle & Temple) always faced the East as the LORD comes to HIS Temple from the East.  It is noticed that when Daniel prayed three times a day to the LORD GOD, he opened his windows toward Jerusalem. [Daniel/Danyel 6. 10] 

 

Jerusalem is the spiritual center on the earth.  The love for Jerusalem is admonished in the words of the Psalmist:  "If I forget you, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget its skill! If I do not remember you, let my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth if I do not exalt Jerusalem above my chief joy." [Psalms (Tehillym) 137. 5 - 6 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

 

The ALMIGHTY ONE commands prayer for this CITY OF THE GREAT KING — "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: May they prosper who love you. Peace be within your walls, prosperity within your palaces." [Psalms (Tehillym) 122. 6 - 9 Tanakh, Kethuvim]   "Upon your walls, O Jerusalem, I have set watchmen, who shall never be silent by day or by night. O you, LORD'S watchmen, do not keep silent, take no rest and give no rest to HIM, until HE establishes Jerusalem makes her renowned on earth." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 62. 6 - 7 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

 

When the PRINCE OF PEACE comes to earth again, prayers for the peace of Jerusalem will be answered.  Prayers for peace to come to the heart of the Jew will be realized when he recognizes YESHUA ha'MASHIACH, his PRINCE OF PEACE, and accepts JESUS OF NAZARETH as the long-awaited MESSIAH OF ISRAEL and the SAVIOR-REDEEMER of mankind! 

 

This peace which the SUPREME GOD desires for both Jew and Gentile was purchased at tremendous cost, even the precious life-blood of the LORD JESUS.  Isaiah, the Jewish prophet, describes this —  "But HE (MESSIAH) was wounded because of our transgressions, HE was bruised because of our iniquities. HE bore the chastisement for our peace, and by HIS stripes we were healed." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 53. 5 Tanakh, Nevi'im]  The MASTER OF THE UNIVERSE has much to say concerning the Land of Israel (Eretz Yisroel) of which Jerusalem is the center.  The REVERED BIBLE prophetically describes its boundaries and also foretells its destruction and restoration.  When restored, Israel shall cover an area of 300,000 square miles. The Land boundaries are from the River of Egypt to the Euphrates and from Hethlon to Kadesh. [Genesis/Berepooh 15. 18; Numbers/Vayikra 34. 2 - 15; Ezekiel/Yehezke-El  48. 1 - 35; Jeremiah/Yirmeyah 31. 38 - 40] 

 

This Land was never to be sold to any other people —  "The land must not be sold beyond reclaim, for the land is MINE; you are but strangers resident with ME." [Leviticus (Vayikra) 25. 23 Tanakh, Torah]  Thus, the Land belongs to the OMNIPOTENT CREATOR and HE gave it to the Jews.  They are the heirs to the Land of Israel.  Speaking to the people of the land, the Jews, ALMIGHTY GOD foretells through the Prophet Moses —  "I will take you to be MY people, and I will be your GOD. And you shall know that I, the LORD, am your GOD WHO freed you from under the burdens of the Egyptians. I will bring you into the land which I raised MY hand (swore) to give to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; and I will give it to you for a possession, I the LORD." [Exodus (Shemot) 6. 7 - 8 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

 

Zion comes from a root which means a dry, barren place or arid wilderness.  In this, its original condition, it is a type of the land and the people of Israel.  But owing to the great power and skill of the GREAT HUSBANDMAN, the MESSIAH YESHUA, this dry ground will be transformed into a fruitful garden and the spiritually barren people brought to full bloom! [Ezekiel/Yehezke-El  36. 6 - 12, 15, 30, 34 - 35] 

 

It has been said that the TRUE & LIVING GOD was through with the Jewish people and that they would never return to the Promised Land.  However, they are wrong!  Moses wrote GOD'S WORD concerning the scattering of Israel; and the desolation of the land. [Deuteronomy/Devarim 28. 64 - 65 with Leviticus/Vayikra  26. 32 - 33]  

 

Even as every one of the prophecies concerning the Dispersion of natural Israel were literally and are being literally fulfilled, just so the Re-gathering and Restoration of natural Israel must literally come to pass.  As it was prophesied that a literal; people were literally scattered among literal nations and suffered literal persecution and this was all literally fulfilled, just so these same prophets foretold that Israel would just as literally be preserved from extinction or assimilation, and would in the End Time, just before the return of their MESSIAH YESHUA, be brought back again as a nation into their own land! [Leviticus/Vayikra 26. 44 - 45] 

 

The HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL is gathering the Jews from the four corners of the earth even as HE said HE would!  Israel is back in the Land!  GOD INVINCIBLE has kept HIS WORD literally! [Jeremiah/Yirmeyah 30. 10 - 11] 

 

The Land of Israel has been passed from nation to nation.  When it was in the hands of the Gentiles it remained undeveloped, untouched.  Why?  Because it is not Gentile property; because the TRUE GOD decreed that under HIM the Jews would do the restoring and renewing —  "I will restore of My people Israel. They shall build ruined cities and inhabit them; they shall plant vineyards and drink their wine; they shall till gardens and eat their fruits. And I will plant them upon their soil, nevermore to be uprooted from the soil I have given them, and they shall know ME said the LORD your GOD." [Amos 9. 14 - 15 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

 

The prophecy of Isaiah 18. 3 contains an important notice to all the people of the world in the last days — "All you who live in the world and inhabit the earth, when a banner is raised in the hills, take note! When a ram's horn is blown, give heed!" [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 18. 3 Tanakh, Nevi'im]  In other words, when the flag (banner) is lifted up in the mountains of Jerusalem and the ram's horn blown, let all the nations take notice.  In 1920, the Flag of Judah was flown from the Tower of David and the Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem blew the Ram's Horn which sounded out over the land! 

 

The LORD SUPREME is gathering the Jews back to Eretz Yisrael (Land of Israel — the Land of Promise) for a specific purpose, not only to cultivate it, to cause "the desert to bloom as the rose" not only to have a homeland, but GOD is bringing this dispersed and wandering people back in readiness for the return of their MESSIAH!  "For the LORD shall build up Zion; HE has appeared in all HIS glory." [Psalms (Tehillym) 102. 16 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

 

There is an amazing prophecy concerning Jerusalem given by YESHUA ha'MASHIACH HIMSELF which will be fulfilled — "Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled." [Luke 21. 24]   It was during first week in June 1967 that the Old City of Jerusalem came into the hands of the Jews who are an independent nation, Israel.  This is the first time Jerusalem has been in the hands of an Independent Israel since 597 BC.   Yet, Jerusalem and the Temple Mount will continue to be trampled by the Gentiles until the end of the Great Tribulation and the start of the 1,000-Year Reign of MESSIAH, the Kingdom Age.  We can continue to stand on the WORD OF THE LORD for it is truth and life.  

 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
 Welcoming Shabbat Chazon (Sabbath of Prophecy)!  Devarim (“words” – Deuteronomy 1-3:22’ Isaiah 1:1-27; Mark 14:1-16) — Come, let us go out to greet the Sabbath Queen; Sabbath presence, let us welcome. 
This is the Sabbath preceding Tisha b’Av is called Shabbat Chazon, the Sabbath of prophecy. The hafTORAH is Isaiah’s foretelling of the destruction of the Temple.

We honor & praise the LORD YESHUA, the BLESSED ONE, WHO gives true Sabbath peace & rest; and separates the sacred from the ordinary.
 The children of Israel are to keep Sabbath, to observe it throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant. It is a sign between ME and the children of Israel forever.  It is our heritage. May it bring rest and joy, peace and comfort to your dwellings, our beloved family; and through it may the HOLY NAME OF THE LORD GOD be praised WHO sanctifies the Sabbath.  Enjoy the delight of the Kedushat Shevi'it — Sabbath Holiness! 

 

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.

Remember Balaam
Category: Teaching Topics

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
GOD is not mocked: if you seek HIM — inquire of HIM and for HIM as your first and vital necessity — you will find HIM; but if you forsake HIM, HE will cast you off forever.

 

REMEMBER BALAAM      
"O MY people, REMEMBER what Balak king of Moab plotted against you, and how Balaam son of Beor responded to him. Recall your passage from pootim to Gilgal the crossing of the Jordan and you will recognize the gracious and righteous acts of the LORD." [Micah (Michah) 6. 5 Tanakh, Nevi'im]  

 

The NEW COVENANT writers have left us serious reflective warnings in regards to Balaam.  Peter warned against the Way of Balaam; the book of Jude, against the Error of Balaam; and John, against the Doctrine of Balaam.  CREATOR GOD evidently considers these warnings necessary and appropriate for CHRISTians today as well.  

 

Balaam was a foreigner from Mesopotamia who used sorcery to receive his predictions for which he was famous. [Numbers/B'Midvar 22. 7, 12; 24. 1; Deuteronomy/Devarim 23. 4]   ALMIGHTY GOD used him to bless Israel when Balak had hired him to curse Israel.  He even received direct revelation from GOD MOST HIGH.   Balaam was rebuked by the ALL-KNOWING ONE OF ISRAEL for his iniquity; GOD used a dumb donkey speaking with a man's voice to restrain the madness of the prophet. [2 Peter 2. 16]  

 

The Way of Balaam was a readiness to prostitute one's high spiritual gifts and privileges, for they "loved the wages of unrighteousness." [2 Peter 2. 15]   Many are willing to preach contrary to GOD'S HOLY INERRANT WORD for personal gain.  

 

The Error of Balaam was evidently his willingness to compromise his own standards of morality and truth in order run greedily to accommodate those of his pagan patrons "for profit." [Jude 1. 11]  

 

The Doctrine of Balaam was already penetrating in the church in John's day, teachers used their own teaching authority to persuade GOD'S people that it was all right for them to compromise their standards, even "to commit fornication" with their idol-worshipping enemies. "But I have a few things against you, because you have there those who hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit sexual immorality." [Revelation 2. 14]  

 

We are faced with similar influences that are shamefully exploiting true CHRISTian ministry today.  Those clear warnings against Balaam-ism are still compelling and urgently essential. That is why the faithful prophet Micah, urged GOD'S people to "REMEMBER Balaam" and his fatally disastrous end — the children of Israel killed him with a sword.  

 

Will you heed OMNIPOTENT GOD'S loving warning, or will you go along with the crowd by discarding the eternal for the temporal? There is a way which seems right to a man, but the end is eternal destruction!  ALMIGHTY GOD knows what we can handle, and HE gives us all the things we need to achieve our potential in life. Balaam’s downfall teaches us to appreciate what we have, and not to hope for things that may be out of our league. Because if we do, we might just wind up being rebuked by a donkey.  

 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
Let us renew our commitment to walk in loving obedience to the LOVING MASTER all the days of our lives.  May the HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL bless you abundantly.  Magnified and sanctified be the GLORIOUS NAME of the LORD GOD in the world which HE created according to HIS will.  May HE establish HIS Kingdom during our life and during our days, and during the life of all the House of Israel, even speedily and at a near time, Amen. 

 

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.

Father's Instructions
Category: Teaching Topics

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
Challenges can be stepping stones or stumbling blocks.  Its just a matter of how you view them.

 

FATHER'S INSTRUCTIONS       
"My son, heed the discipline of your father, and do not forsake the instruction of your mother." [Proverbs (Mishle) 1. 8 Tanakh, Kethuvim]

 

Proverbs is the best book "for learning wisdom and discipline; for understanding words of discernment; for acquiring the discipline for success, righteousness, justice, and equity for endowing the simple with shrewdness, the young with knowledge and foresight." [Proverbs (Mishle) 1. 2 - 4 Tanakh, Kethuvim]   Then there are the Proverbs that are laid out in the form of lessons.  David, in all probability, compiled these lessons for each of them begins with the loving words "my son" or "sons." [Proverbs/Mishle 1. 8; 2. 1; 3. 1, 11, 21; 4. 1, 10, 20; 5. 1, 7; 6. 20; 7. 1, 24; 8. 32] 

 

The first one urges the importance of children being willing to heed the counsel of their parents.  One of the main characteristics of the "last days" is predicted to be the fact that children will be "disobedient to parents." [2 Timothy 3. 1 - 2]  "Children, obey your parents in the LORD; for this is right. Honor your father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise." [Ephesians 6. 1 - 2]  This applies especially to children with GOD-fearing parents as we teach obedience to all the commands of our LOVING HEAVENLY FATHER through the LORD JESUS, the BLESSED MESSIAH REDEEMER.  

 

It is extremely important that each lesson emphasizes the immediate significance for young people to obey the WORD OF GOD as taught them by their parents. Wise counsel, learning, discretion, instruction, knowledge, understanding and wisdom are promised over and over to those who know, love and obey GOD'S HOLY WRITTEN WORD. 

 

"MY son, IF you accept MY WORDS and treasure up MY commandments; IF you make your ear attentive to wisdom and your mind open to discernment; IF you call to understanding and cry aloud to discernment, IF you seek her as you do silver, and search for her as for hidden treasures; THEN you will understand the fear of the LORD and attain knowledge of GOD." [Proverbs (Mishle) 2. 1 - 5 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
LORD our GOD, great, eternal, wonderful in glory, WHO keeps covenant and promises for those that love YOU with their whole heart, WHO is the LIFE of all, the HELP of those that flee to YOU, the HOPE of those who cry to YOU, cleanse us from our sins, secret and open, and from every thought displeasing to YOUR goodness — cleanse our bodies and souls, our hearts and consciences, that with a pure heart, and a clear soul, with perfect love and calm hope, we may venture confidently and fearlessly to pray to YOU.  We thank YOU and in the MAGNIFICENT NAME of YESHUA we pray, Amen! 

 

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.
