The Holy Bible recorded this teaching of the Christ's:
"Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and unto God the things that are God's."

IMHO Trump is somehow in the place of Caesar here. There is no need to connect Trump to God too much. He is as connected to God as all of us.

Perhaps, but the Democrats do not want to render unto Trump the things that are Trump's. They seem to think he stole the office of the president by Russian collusion.

A really useful long term guide? :roll: And how exactly is that meant to be useful after 68AD when the Julio-Claudian dynasty came to an end?

Actually it is possible to know. A self-authenticating spiritual experience is perfectly plausible. You may not be able to prove it to anyone else but you would still know.

Tracey Cooke - Important Revelations on Trump & Coronavirus created in China

This guy claims to be a modern day prophet that sees visions from God. But is he?
Is he saying that President Trump will be assassinated after he wins the election?

Well, I usually quote what I think my intended audience will listen to most. This topic's OP believes in the Bible more so I quote that. If my intended audience are, say, Muslims, I might as well find something in the Qu'ran instead.

Christians have implicitly excepted that this is a filthy Zoroastrian-Jewish lie. Activities were restricted on the seventh day because it was the day of Ahura Mazda. The week that we follow has nothing do with the Jews and was instituted by Augustus. We rest on the first day of the week, the day of the Sun, not the seventh day of the week like the Jews.

Its like when people say remember the true meaning of Christmas. I agree. Christmas is a pagan festival of Sun worship, its got nothing to do with the birth of Jewish Messiah claimant.

Studies of the original Hebrew, how writers conveyed meaning in those days plus the culture of the time suggest that "day" can be used to denote a time period that has metaphysical significance rather than something of fixed length. In modern times we sometimes use "day" in this way too.

Of course, fundamentalist atheists and Young Earth Creationists will insist on reading the Bible as an instruction manual or a textbook. These are both pretty much cut from the same cloth and there is no shifting them, although IMO the former are the dumber ones because they do not own up to their dogmatism.

This video goes into a bit more depth on this:

This video answers the questions as to what the Holy Bible really teaches about the days of creation:

Genesis Creation Days: Did God Really Create in Six Ordinary Days?



Did God create the "Heavens, Earth, Sea, and everything in them" in just six days as God Himself said in the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:11)?
