Hey.. many years have gone by since I've done this exercises..so 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 repent..it'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...
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 work..so, have a rest
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 ..it 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..
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..
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?)
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.
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.
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..
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" word..you 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?
bobbym, I believe there is only one God ..but people worship different gods ..you and I surely don't belong to the same one
stefy..who am I to judge that man ..it's God's judgement ..it's supernatural to love such man ..it is possible in Jesus. .there were many murderers who repented and converted to God
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 )..now 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
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.
