SEX and GOD and the Bible

By Bob Barney 
image from gospelcentric.org 
It is very unfortunate that so many people have had their minds obfuscated with false religious dogma concerning sex and what God really wants us to know about the subject. You will see that God is no prude when it comes to sex and actually has given us a guideline on how to enjoy it without any guilt!    In Genesis, God creates man and woman after the GOD kind. Notice that all other created beings are created after their own kind, but man was created after God’s own kind. Note also that God says “Let US make man in OUR image”. At least two beings are talking together, and they claim to be God  (see the meaning of the word God here  ). What is the very first thing that God realized about man? “It is not good for the man to be alone.”  God does not want us to be alone. He wants us in a union with another human, just as God is one, he wants us to be one, with the helpmate that God gives us. Next notice the first command God gave to Adam and Eve. Gen 1:28   God blessed them and told them, "Multiply and fill the earth and subdue it. Be masters over the fish and birds and all the animals."  Then we read a little later this: Gen. 4:1   “Now Adam slept with his wife, Eve, and she became pregnant.” (NLT translation).    So sex was made for us to enjoy and to recreate after our own kind! We are meant to become part of the God Family. However, this command to have sex does not give us the license to have it with just anyone. Here are just SOME of the Biblical restrictions:

What if the moon landings had failed? The poignant and moving speech that President Nixon would have delivered if Apollo 11 astronauts had not come home

The memo laid out a list of instructions for President Nixon, among which was the tragic task of calling the 'widows-to-be' to express condolences and then to deliver a moving and thoughtful speech to the United States and ultimately the watching world.

    Mt. St. Helens Renewal Slow, Steady

    This is an eyewitness report of ecological renewal at the volcano that erupted 32 years ago.

    This past Saturday, August 4, a group of about 60 people hiked the Johnston Ridge trail to view Mt. St. Helens and hear about its geology and ecology.  The event, advertised on DoNotBeDeceived.org, was organized with help from members of the Design Science Association of Portland and 7 Wonders Museum on highway 504 west of Mt. St. Helens.  The event featured geologist Dr. Steven A. Austin, who personally researched the volcano in the weeks and years after its May 18, 1980 eruption and has hiked the area numerous times.  Dr. Austin had even scuba-dived into Spirit Lake to view the patterns of tree deposition after sonar his team towed under a boat revealed trees sinking into the bottom in upright positions, analogous to the petrified forests of Specimen Ridge.  He also discovered a 1/4oth scale “miniature Grand Canyon” carved by a mudflow in 1982.  This canyon (left center in photo) was the destination of the hike.

    Geology:  The volcano is very stark, with most of the surroundings still highly impacted by the eruption 32 years ago.  Two deep gorges, Loowit Canyon, headed with a large waterfall, and Step Canyon, 600 feet deep, descend from the crater and flow into the North Fork of the Toutle River.  Mudflow damage along this river is still visible for miles west Mt. St. Helens.  In the vast landslide debris field below the crater, the “Little Grand Canyon” becomes visible after about 1.5 miles on the trail.  In many ways (except for color) the 200′ deep canyon resembles its larger namesake: it has stratified layers, round-headed side canyons and sharp gullies entering from both sides.  There is a small stream flowing through it reached after a descent down Truman Trail, after 4.6 miles of hiking (requires off-trail permit).

    What makes this little canyon fascinating and relevant to catastrophist geology is that we know exactly how and when it formed.  The main eruption on May 18, 1980 deposited a thick layer of landslide debris.  In June, a pyroclastic flow deposited 25 feet of sediments that show remarkable laminations at both large and small scales – a surprise to pre-eruption geological thinking.  Finally, on March 19, 1982, a mudflow that poured from the crater deposited mud on top of the other flows, then overtopped a debris dam, causing rapid downcutting and upstream cutting through the three layers.  While it might appear that the stream carved the canyon, we know from this highly-monitored volcano that the stream is a mere relic that had nothing to do with the canyon’s rapid, catastrophic formation….

    Does this coin found near Jerusalem prove that Samson lived... and that he did fight the lion?

    Samson and DelilahSamson and Delilah (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

    A tiny seal has been uncovered that could be the first archaeological evidence of Samson, the Biblical slayer of Philistines.

    Archaeologists discovered the ancient artifact while excavating the tell of Beit Shemesh in the Judaean Hills near Jerusalem, Israel.

    It appears to depict the Old Testament story of Samson, whose might was undone by his lust for the temptress Delilah, and his fight with a lion.

    The seal, which measures less than an inch in diameter, shows a large animal with a feline tail attacking a human figure.

    The seal was discovered at a level of excavation that dates it to roughly the 11th century BC, when Israelite tribes had moved into the area after Joshua's conquest of Canaan.

    It was a time when the Jews were led by ad hoc leaders known as judges, one of whom was Samson.

    The location of the find was close to the River Sorek that marked the boundary between the Israelites and their Philistine foes, The Daily Telegraph reported.

    The location also indicates that the figure on the seal could represent Samson, according to Israeli archaeologists Professor Shlomo Bunimovitz and Dr Zvi Lederman.

    Beit Shemesh is regularly mentioned in the Old Testament, most notably in chapter 6 of the book of Samuel I - the ruler of Israel immediately after Samson - as being the first city encountered by the ark of the covenant on its way back from Philistia after having been captured by the Philistines in battle.

    The first Christian Church A.D. 37: at Glastonbury; Britain

    Founded by Joseph of Arimathaea, Christ's great-uncle
    Also: Irish and Scottish Ancestry

    The Legends of Glastonbury and other lost history..

    image from www.graal.co.uk"The reason, today, we are so unaware of the fact that the British church was the true church established by Joseph of Arimathaea, by the direction of St. Philip, is because most all the records have been destroyed.  There have been enough records to survive, though, to establish beyond all doubt that the church of Britain (not to be confused with the present day Anglican Church of England) was the true church, before being Romanized.         For this reason most everyone has assumed that the true church was the Roman Catholic Church, which is entirely false.  Neither the Roman Catholic Church nor her Protestant daughters represent the true church established by our Messiah.  There was a church established at Rome, and Linus {2nd Tim 4:21} (the son of Caractacus) was appointed by the Apostle Paul to be the first Bishop, and it was not related in any way to the Roman Catholic Church, ever!  It was called, Basilica Di Pudenziana (also the Palace of the British).

    Despite what the Catholic Church states, the Catholic Church cannot really trace it's roots all the way back to Peter one of the Twelve Apostles.  And while the Roman Catholic hierarchy was founded about A.D. 350, after Constantine;  The first real Catholic Church was not formed until A.D. 590-604 with the first real Pope being Gregory I (who refused the title!).  The first Roman Bishop to adopt the title "Pope" was Boniface III in A.D. 610.  So before that the world new nothing of a Pope.  

    Naturally, the Pope of Roman Catholicism could not make the claims to godly power on earth as he does today (the binding and loosing of souls in Purgatory,  possessing the Keys to Heaven, Christ's Vicar on earth, sole authority to interpret Scripture, Sainting deceased people, Extreme Unction...) if it were disclosed that he is not in a direct line from Apostle Peter (Not that the wild claims to power by the Popery could ever be reconciled with Biblical Scripture anyway, but that is a different topic for a different study. (See:  The History of Christianity (Roman), An Account of the Inquisition, Do Catholics Worship the Mother Mary? And if they do, is it against God's Word?, Mother Mary Apparitions: The hidden dark side, Exposing the emergence of the first beast of Revelation chapter 13).

    But it should be noted that Jesus did NOT appoint Peter to the headship of the Apostles and expressly forbade any such notion, as stated in:

    Luke 22:24-26 (Jesus speaking with the 12 Apostles)
    24 And there was also a strife among them, which of them should be accounted the greatest.
    25 And he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise authority upon them are called benefactors.
    26 But ye shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger  (KJV)

    (See also: Eph 1:22-23, 1st Cor 3:11, and Col 1:18).

    But there were Christian Churches starting in 37 A.D. when there was established by Joseph of Arimathaea the first above ground church in the world at Glastonbury.  Glastonbury lies in the heart of Somerset County, in southwest England.  In early British times Glastonbury was actually a small island (the waters have since dried up - as late as the early part of the 16th century).  You will remember this Joseph of Arimathaea from Scripture, he is the one who provided the tomb for the Messiah Jesus Christ to buried in: 

    John 19:38
    38 And after this Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, besought Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus: and Pilate gave him leave. He came therefore, and took the body of Jesus.  (KJV)

    Luke 23:52-53
    52 This man went unto Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus.
    53 And he took it down, and wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a sepulchre that was hewn in stone, wherein never man before was laid.  (KJV)

    Joseph of Arimathaea was also a member of the Sanhedrin that had manipulated the Roman government into crucifying Jesus Christ, but Joseph did not vote for it There is reason to believe that Joseph was not present at the final trial of Jesus before the Sanhedrin, and that perhaps Jesus Himself asked Joseph not to attend*, but there is no mention of it in the Bible either way, other than "The same had not consented to the counsel and deed of them" {Luke 23:51}.  History records that Joseph left the Sanhedrin in 36 A.D.*

    Luke 23:50-51
    50 And, behold, there was a man named Joseph, a counsellor; and he was a good man, and a just:
    51 (The same had not consented to the counsel and deed of them;) he was of Arimathaea, a city of the Jews: who also himself waited for the kingdom of God.  (KJV)

    Joseph is also the great-uncle to Jesus Christ on Mary's side* (obviously, for God was Jesus' Father).  History also records that Jesus Christ was with Joseph of Aramathaea in Glastonbury during His twelfth through thirtieth years where He (Jesus) is not mentioned in Scripture*.
