David Russell Molsey replied to Rush's discussion Sabbath, HomeWORK, WORKing Out in the group Christian Men
"Rush,You really have two problems that need to be addressed first. 1. The Sabbath isn't Sunday, note Matthew 28.1 'Now after the Sabbath, toward the dawn of the first day of the week'. Sabbath in Jewish culture is Saturday and the…"

David Russell Molsey replied to Josh Billings's discussion KJV vs. NIV in the group Christian Men
"Josh,While no translation is perfect, what we have here is a case of potential mistranslation/transliteration. The name Lucifer comes from the Latin, lucifer, and it literally means the Morning Star, which is Venus. While, potentially a reference to…"

David Russell Molsey replied to Rawb's discussion Article: 8 Gnostic Myths You May Have Imbibed in the group Christian Men
"Rawb, Thanks. Perhaps we should go for anti-materialism and split the difference. Since Gnosticism is both dualistic as defined in terms of good and evil (admittedly, I was thinking in terms of body and spirit, i.e. human substance dualism) and, as…"

David Russell Molsey replied to Rawb's discussion Article: 8 Gnostic Myths You May Have Imbibed in the group Christian Men
"Rawb,I think there's a lot of merit to this post. N. T. Wright's Surprised by Hope points out the same thing. My only real critique is that it's dualism/anti-materialism that's been imbibed. Gnosticism, as the name implies,…"

David Russell Molsey replied to Elliott Jason Ridgway's discussion Unitarian Universalism... is it Christian..? in the group Christian Men
"I'm going to have to go with no. A Christian denomination (or non-denomination) must be one that is centred around Jesus Christ as Saviour, Lord, and Son of God. Unitarian Universalist churches, or at least the ones I know of, are usually more…"

David Russell Molsey replied to kid iowa's discussion What kind of hat is acceptable... in the group Manly Hats!
"I'd recommend an ivy/cabby hat. You can usually find them in cotton and linen, as well as wool for the winter. The right straw fedora wouldn't look out of place either, so long as you wear it right. Try hatsinthebelfry.com. You can find…"

David Russell Molsey replied to Nick H's discussion Preaching to the converted in the group Christian Men
"Oh, also, I should note that biblically, and even in the early church, church meetings were almost entirely for believers. Evangelism rarely took place on Sunday mornings, it took place Monday through Saturday in one on one and small group…"

David Russell Molsey replied to Nick H's discussion Preaching to the converted in the group Christian Men
"I'm not trying to defend his actions, but I would note that Jesus said not cast pearls before swine, nor what is holy to dogs. Perhaps, given an Augustinian understanding of grace, this bishop sees these people as no longer Christians (or that…"

David Russell Molsey replied to Joe W's discussion To Cut Or Not in the group Christian Men
"It isn't necessary, but I think it is easier. I would say the same for uncircumcised men, that their children should remain uncircumcised. Of course, I really have no right in this conversation, I don't have children, but it is my intent…"

David Russell Molsey replied to Joe W's discussion To Cut Or Not in the group Christian Men
"I personally believe, unless you have strong convictions otherwise, that your son ought to match you, so to speak, it makes teaching him how to take care of himself easier because he hasn't anything you don't."

David Russell Molsey replied to Zachary Clayton's discussion Baptism. in the group Christian Men
"Zach,   I should note two things: 1. I mostly agree with Jamie.    2. In the early Church, the Eucharist was, amongst other things, a kind of return to one's baptism. Just as in baptism you were buried with Christ and raised…"

David Russell Molsey replied to Zachary Clayton's discussion Baptism. in the group Christian Men
"Zach,   I know how you're feeling. My church, so scrupulous about maintaining its records only recorded the month and year in which I was baptized, but not the day. I also am now living a much more serious Christian walk than I did when I…"

David Russell Molsey replied to discerning music's discussion Is There A Trinity? in the group Christian Men
"Shane,   I take offense because I believe it. Because I don't think it is stupid or senseless prattle but the truth. If it is stupid, it's stupid in the same way that God becoming man and dying for the sins of the world is stupid."

David Russell Molsey replied to discerning music's discussion Is There A Trinity? in the group Christian Men
"Shane,   30 years? How about for non-Trinitarians 1800-1900 years and for most Trinitarians 2000 years. I'm sorry you find the Church's majority teaching for at least nearly its entire existence annoying, but as a Church historian I…"

"All I do know, is that the motivations of government are often very different then the motivations of the common man. And very different from the what the propagandists would have you believe."
