    I’ll take that as a “no”

    • Not sure if by “no” means I don’t take heed to what scripture says, if that is what you are getting at, then by any stretch it is incorrect. We see adaptation into monotheistic themes from polytheism, while I adhere to what polytheism points out, I am not so sure that the monotheistic adaptation of concepts and ideologies properly reflects in…[Read more]

    @shamaskuruk Do you believe the scriptures are true?

    • When you say the scriptures I make the assumption you mean the translation from the Hebrew Tanakh to the latter KJV? Or do you also include the Koine Greek as the original New Testament (which is Semitic writings) to the modern KJV? You are asking a very broad question, with no specificity and therefore it is hard to answer that question. If you…[Read more]

    Yeah, NO!

    On the last day of creation, God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness” (Genesis 1:26). Thus, He finished His work with a “personal touch.” God formed Adam from the dust and gave him life by sharing His own breath (Genesis 2:7). Accordingly, humanity is unique among all God’s creations, having both a material body and…[Read more]

    Every verse of scripture is important.

      Awesome, concerning the connection of “image” and “likeness” with idol worship.

      Genesis 1: 27-28 concerning image, so image and the image of God. Right from the start, human creation is for (P) an event sui generis. Then God said, åðúåîãë åðîìöá íãà äùòð “Let us make humankind in our image, according to our likeness; and let them have dominion ov…[Read more]

        There are a few issues with this response, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness”, you make the point I made earlier and you make a conflicting statement as well

        “That we were made to resemble God.”

        “Adam did not resemble God in the sense of God’s having flesh and blood.”

        This is in conflict to Genesis 1 as God makes mankind in hi…[Read more]

    @shamaskuruk a simple google search result…

    Answer: The definition of idolatry, according to Webster, is “the worship of idols or excessive devotion to, or reverence for some person or thing.” An idol is anything that replaces the one, true God. The most prevalent form of idolatry in Bible times was the worship of images that were thought to…[Read more]

    • dan replied 1 year ago

      Okay so you give a general definition which encompasses the dictionary usage, and no need to include etymologies, which is fine.

      We can get more into the ancient Israelite’s later on.

      We can get into Ba’al and Dagon later on as well.

      We can talk about other religions as well.

      “Idolatry extends beyond the worship of idols and images and false…[Read more]
