  2. It may be "according to Judaism" but certainly not according to scripture. You appear to be citing "Jewish sources" rather than the stated scriptural context. It really doesnt matter what anyone wants to call it; it only matters what God wants to call it; and God does call it "the seventh-day Sabbath" as well as "the Sabbath of The Lord Thy God," [not of Moses] and IF as you say God gave the Sabbath to "them" only, then we are dealing with at least two scriptural false hoods: 1) all the other commandments "must" also be for "them" 2) the seventh-day Sabbath is not described as only for/of the Jews The red-bolded "them" is taken out of Biblical context when we try to say "only for them." Scripture also tells us that not all who are Israel, actually are, Israel."" So in NT times your bolded "them" consisted not only of Jews but of all nations, which makes much more sense hermenutically: Today, "them" means everyone who names the name of Christ. .Now, with this other thing you said: Romans 2 is not a description of "the law," it is a detailed accounting of how we humans respond to the law; and how God has made provisions for all nations and peoples to understand and accept His law: "The law" as in God's law" is not racially prejudiced, and includes "every nation, tongue and people..." Otherwise, it would not be God's law; it would be ours. The whole climate change thing is being promoted by the Vatican as something we can change or do something about. This is in defiance of the Bible's accounting of how the "natural disasters" coming upon us are not caused by human hands. In Dan 8:25, for example, we are told ""Through his cunning He shall cause deceit to prosper under his rule; And he shall exalt himself in his heart. He shall destroy many in their prosperity. He shall even rise against the Prince of princes; But he shall be broken without human means. So, Biblically speaking, "human hands cannot fix whats happening. Since you are quoting from The Council Of Trent; I am thinking I can quote from other, pertinent sources, as well: I believe that The Pope's statements on climate change are in ignorance of real science, and that his real aim has never changed from that of past Popes, in finding ways to control the world by whatever forms of transnational government he can get. The current Pope states: which we can agree with to a degree, and then he finally gets around to what the OP of this topic is getting at: God has not restrained the powers of darkness from carrying forward their deadly work of vitiating the air, one of the sources of life and nutrition, with a deadly miasma. Not only is vegetable life affected but man suffers from pestilence. . . . These things are the result of drops from the vials of God's wrath [GOD TAKES RESPONSIBILITY FOR THAT WHICH HE ALLOWS OR DOES NOT PREVENT. SEE EXODUS 7:3; 8:32; 1 CHRONICLES 10:4, 13, 14.] being sprinkled on the earth, and are but faint representations of what will be in the near future.--3SM 391 (1891). {LDE 27.1} Notice that in the Pope's own encyclical, the purported solutions have nothing to do with the climate. Its about "imposing obligations" on anyone who does not go along, Its about world dominion. Whats to stop them from including "the Sunday obligation" once this thing develops more?

    Days of Praise

    January 24, 2020 Paul's Growth “For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.” (Romans 12:3) Many times today we look at Paul and wish to be greatly used of God as he was. But Scripture teaches us that use of Paul as a role model requires a proper view of Paul—his humility and his submission to Christ. Paul didn’t start out as a humble servant. In fact, before his conversion, he was quite proud of his pedigree (Philippians 3:4-6). He was the overseer at the stoning of Stephen (Acts 7:58). He was fanatical, the haughty persecutor of the early church (8:3). In grace, he was informed of his error by “Jesus whom thou persecutest” (9:5), and soon Paul recognized the worthlessness of his background and human achievement, and counted all these things “but dung, that I may win Christ” (Philippians 3:8). Once his view of Christ was proper, Paul’s view of himself began to decrease. In AD 56 or so, Paul, who had been set apart for a ministry to the Gentiles “from my mother’s womb” (Galatians 1:15), called himself “the least of the apostles, that am not meet [fit] to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. But by the grace of God I am what I am” (1 Corinthians 15:9-10). While in prison several years later, Paul wrote to the Gentile churches he had founded, marveling that this ministry was given “unto me, who am less than the least of all saints” (Ephesians 3:8). Shortly before he was beheaded in prison for his faith, he testified “that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief” (1 Timothy 1:15). As Paul grew older, his evaluation of his own worth decreased. As one draws closer and closer to the light, he is able to see more clearly his own unworthiness. JDM
  13. The glabella is a medical term given to the space on the human head that is located above the nose and between the eyebrows. This area of the head sits just over the frontal bone of the skull and works to connect the two structures known as superciliary ridges. The word glabella comes from the Latin word glabellus, which means smooth and hairless, and glaber, meaning bald, due to the lack of hair that is usually found in this area. If you have a unibrow, your glabella might be hidden! James

    Trivia Quiz?

    Answer: On this day in 1957, the Wham-O toy company rolled out the first batch of their aerodynamic plastic discs—now known as Frisbees. The story of the Frisbee began in Bridgeport, Connecticut, where William Frisbie opened the Frisbie Pie Company in 1871. Students from nearby universities would throw the empty pie tins to each other, yelling “Frisbie!” as they let go. In 1955, Walter Morrison invented a plastic version of the disc and sold it to the toy company Wham-O as the “Pluto Platter”–an attempt to capitalize on the nation’s flying saucer hysteria. A year after the toy’s release, Wham-O changed its name to the Frisbee, a reference to the historic pie company.
