Hey.. many years have gone by since I've done this I need to check some answers..
2 number cubes are rolled. a)What is the probability of getting 6 at least on one cube?  b)What is the probability of getting a number 6 if we know that the sum of two numbers is 8?

well.. moses asked for mercy for his ppl.. God answered...
in my translation is another word instead of's "gave up"

this evil doesn't mean God was supposed to sin against them..He was just about to do justice, but Moses asked for mercy.. and He listened.. (I've said..and I'll say it again.. God had known Israel's sin before and he had known this Moses request before..and that He will approve it..He just let it to be written...I don't know if you understand me..)

when I said 11th verse I meant "And Moses besought the Lord his God,

I know what are you trying to say.. but don't you think that God is going to give up on judgement day...

Moses was praying and.. God heard his prayer..Proverbs 15:29 The Lord is far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of the righteous.
if you pray He will answer to you too..
but He knows everything since the very first beginning..cause He is the beginning

you are so predictable .. didn't He know all those things? He knew them and had let them be written...

#9 Re: Dark Discussions at Cafe Infinity » Justice » 2013-03-05 05:48:18

yep... if you're correct - I must be incorrect, bobbym.

#10 Re: Dark Discussions at Cafe Infinity » Justice » 2013-03-04 23:33:54

you are looking on God as on man... you can't trapped Him in the same box.. His mind is multidimensional... He is the alpha and omega.. He has no time.. the decision He makes now, He knows what will be the result..
His will determines the way your ways should be.. He doesn't have to be corrected.. all He does is complement things
He has a free will to give you and to take away from you.. and at any time He is just..

I really have too much, have a rest smile

#11 Re: Dark Discussions at Cafe Infinity » Justice » 2013-03-04 23:18:43

What He says - He does it (cause nothing what He says is wrong, He doesn't need to correct himself)... His mind is not like ours- changeable..He can't contradict himself.. He knows everything... He knows your decision about your salvation in the future.. although you may never choose Jesus for your Savior (and He is going to let it happen)
judgement day may be millions of years from now..but it may be in a few hours... reading the predictions from Bible, that time is very near..

#12 Re: Dark Discussions at Cafe Infinity » Justice » 2013-03-04 23:10:15

Bible says that there is the one knows it except Him, but there is time... and be awake and prepared...otherwise all those warnings would be unnecessary

go to bed bobbym.. smile

#13 Re: Dark Discussions at Cafe Infinity » Justice » 2013-03-04 23:03:29

he didn't please Him like those two examples... he sacrificed but not completely ...
if God let sinners to live doesn't mean that He tolerates and forgives! Today is the time of mercy..He is still waiting for souls to repent (those who repent He will forgive)..but there will not be many who will do it.. there exists a moment where He will close the doors
the day of God's Judgement is yet to come..

#14 Re: Dark Discussions at Cafe Infinity » Justice » 2013-03-04 22:47:38

your story is about sacrifice... he didn't please God by doing that.. there will be different rewards in Heaven (and that he lived long is not a argument for anything..many bad sinners live long)
Ananias and Sapphira lived in New Testament time- time of mercy..Abel and Cain in Old.. (see the difference?)

#15 Re: Dark Discussions at Cafe Infinity » Justice » 2013-03-04 22:32:36

Acts 5:1-11
But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession,

2 And kept back part of the price, his wife also being privy to it, and brought a certain part, and laid it at the apostles' feet.

3 But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land?

4 Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God.

5 And Ananias hearing these words fell down, and gave up the ghost: and great fear came on all them that heard these things.

6 And the young men arose, wound him up, and carried him out, and buried him.

7 And it was about the space of three hours after, when his wife, not knowing what was done, came in.

8 And Peter answered unto her, Tell me whether ye sold the land for so much? And she said, Yea, for so much.

9 Then Peter said unto her, How is it that ye have agreed together to tempt the Spirit of the Lord? behold, the feet of them which have buried thy husband are at the door, and shall carry thee out.

10 Then fell she down straightway at his feet, and yielded up the ghost: and the young men came in, and found her dead, and, carrying her forth, buried her by her husband.

11 And great fear came upon all the church, and upon as many as heard these things.

Genesis 4
3 And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the Lord.

4 And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the Lord had respect unto Abel and to his offering:

5 But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.

6 And the Lord said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen?

7 If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.

hmm.. funny story, but you can't fool God
should you be sleeping now bobbymmm?

#17 Re: Dark Discussions at Cafe Infinity » Justice » 2013-03-04 22:09:45

well I see much connection.. but perhaps my clumsy expression is not showing it properly smile
God is just.. and He determines what is just what not..that's all I'm saying

#18 Re: Dark Discussions at Cafe Infinity » Justice » 2013-03-04 22:00:53

Well I believe there is God behind Old Testament..but I know it's difficult to understand it.. I couldn't understand it before I understood New Testament completely...

#19 Re: Dark Discussions at Cafe Infinity » Justice » 2013-03-04 21:29:35

lol.. so your conclusion is that I say to stone everyone who is wrong?

of course that I am wrong many times.. but concerning this things that I am saying (unfortunately with my poor english vocabulary)..if this things are wrong then all heaven and hell (according to bible) can't make sense and the whole bible must be a lie then..

#20 Re: Dark Discussions at Cafe Infinity » Justice » 2013-03-04 11:57:57

The definition I gave was only related to negative side..actually judgement...
But of course justice has an upside and a down side
Laws are just to the extent that they agree with God's natural and revealed laws.. some of these we all know, others would be disputed...

bobbym..Is it possible that what you think is not quite correct?

Sorry for the "mad" know that my englsih is bad

Well, all things considered, I do agree to some point with the Bible. But there are things, like the God killing almost all of mankind in a flood, that I really do not like.

well... there are things that we can't understand..what would you say to a man that hasn't seen integrals and doesn't see in it nothing but little "snakes"..

Second, I am Christian mostly because I was born into a Christian family. I am still to young to decide which religion, if any, I want to belong to.

when I talk about Christ and the Bible, I'm not talking about the religion...for me a Christian is a spiritually newborn man (John 3:3-7- Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.), and not just the etiquette that you get when a catholic priest sprinkles you with water..

btw.. I think you're not too young..

Third, as I got it, the whole Bible is just a series of stories that were documented by people who believed in God. How do I know that what they've written is truly God's word? … a-Rec.html

you mean like you-not?
why are you mad at me when I say that we don't belong to the same One..I thought that is obvious

dear stefy.. it's not my idea, it is written in the Bible- the book that you should take as the Word of God if you're a true Christian
btw.. that sentence was to bobbym

#24 Re: Dark Discussions at Cafe Infinity » Justice » 2013-03-03 02:12:28

bobbym, I believe there is only one God ..but people worship different gods and I surely don't belong to  the  same  one
stefy..who  am  I to judge that man's God's judgement's supernatural to love such man is possible in Jesus. .there were many murderers who repented and converted to God

Romans 3:10-11 wrote:

There is none righteous, no, not one:
There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.

Who feels righteous enough?

To eastern people...tell me what have your gods done for you? My God died instead of me because He loved me...(since the penalty for sin is death and since God is righteous..  to fulfill that righteousness the blood had to be shed ) tell me, is there a greater love than that.. to die for a sinner who spits on you and fornicates with other gods?

btw,"an eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth" is very mathematical, don't you think?

there are few attributes of God.. we shouldn't mix them... this is what Jesus said

Luke 6:27-38  wrote:

But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,
Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.
And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloak forbid not to take thy coat also.
Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again.
And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.
For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them.
And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same.
And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again.
But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.
Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.
Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:
Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.

Is this justice? No, it's mercy.
