Re: stuck on circumcision...

Exodus 6:4-8 : I also established My covenant with them to give them the land of Canaan, the land in which they lived as sojourners. Moreover, I have heard the groaning of the people of Israel whom the Egyptians hold as slaves, and I have remembered My covenant. Say therefore to the people of Isra...

Re: stuck on circumcision...

As a further point, I notice in Genesis 17:14 that Yahuweh says the following: Any uncircumcised male who is not circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin shall be cut off from his people . Yahuweh here says "his people (Hebrew 'ameyha / עמיה )", not "my people (Hebrew 'ammiy / עמי )". Further proof ...

Re: stuck on circumcision...

It definitely seems that being circumcised doesn't preclude you from having a relationship with God - The Ruach Kodesh in-dwelt non-circumcised people as mentioned in Acts, so we know that it's nothing to do with salvation which is good to know. Well one only needs to see Petros' response to the Se...

Re: stuck on circumcision...

That's one of the problems isn't it Nige - practically all those who promote the "you should be circumcised" have already had the snip done. But not done for the reasons why Yahuweh tells Abraham to do it. As far as I can see however, the Covenant of circumcision is all to do with the possession of ...

Re: Acts 20:7: The First Day of the Week, or a Sabbath?

All Erasmus actually did was compile some 12 Century Greek manuscripts into a book that could be printed and distributed. The printing press was also the brain child of a RC member and was originally used to print indulgence slips. Is the TR a perfect base? No, far from it. But it's still at least 7...

Re: Acts 20:7: The First Day of the Week, or a Sabbath?

Well I would rather say that Galatians, not Paul, is the basis of Christianity. As for "to whom" were the 7 letters in Revelation written to, then I guess that whilst Christianity as a whole is a false religion, there are some people encased within it whom understand a heck of a lot, and try to chan...

Re: Acts 20:7: The First Day of the Week, or a Sabbath?

If we were to think that everyone named in Scripture was an adumbration of all those with the same name, we'd have to pretty much say that everyone named Judah/Judas were all traitors and betrayers. As they weren't, I would go with the 'imaginative' bit :) Coincidences do happen, so the fact that Pa...

Re: Acts 20:7: The First Day of the Week, or a Sabbath?

That is a very, very good point Noel. Several of the reformers wanted to fully break off from the Roman Catholic Church, starting a new tree. The Anabaptists were one such group, but they were severely persecuted by not only the Roman Catholic Church, but by Lutherans and other such "Protestant" Chr...

Due to the fact that a few spam-bots have tried to join the forums, registration is now no longer automatic for people - once you've registered, you need to check your email Inbox that you registered with for an email from TWTY forum, asking to confirm that you are in fact a real person, or at least...

Re: Acts 20:7: The First Day of the Week, or a Sabbath?

Good question there Rob. Again, we have to look at what Yahuweh says in the Torah regarding His seven feasts, although concentrating on the second, third, and fourth feasts, as the times for each of them is reliant on the other. First is the Festival of Unleavened Bread. Lev 23:6-8: And on the fifte...

Always a good icebreaker for people :) I'm called Stephen, although I'm more regularly referred to as "Swalchy" (or "git"). I'm a self employed Computer Technician, and a general all-round geek (seriously - I'm extremely geeky). I spend most of my time translating most things ancient/koine Greek (th...

Hello all, and welcome to the new The Way to Yahuweh Forum. This forum is mainly to discuss translations of Scripture, the Renewed Covenant, and Paul's Writings, but really, any other thing to do with Scripture (like commentaries from the Early Church Fathers, other Jewish/Christian Greek/Latin Lite...

Re: Helloooo

Hello all, and welcome to the new forums.

Obviously not that many people on it yet (been live about, erm, 5 mins?), but I expect such a forum on TWTY to grow :)

Just one main rule: try not to argue too much, especially if someone's viewpoint differs quite a lot from your own :)
