I was raised Catholic. Got into computers, became interested in decryption. Then decided to decrypt the Bible. Then God showed up in my life, and many times has been my favorite part of life. I like the idea of everyone coming back to the Catholic Faith by learning what faith really means. And hope for the end of all the arguments and the beginnings to the purity.

comment What does it mean when it says,“There is a sin unto death”
@Joseph I actually had a similar understanding to 'Matthew 16:19' at one point in time. So I want to share what changed my mind. First was the meaning to the "Kingdom of Heaven". Once I learned of it's location as "Within You"(Luke 17:21) I had to take another look at what being "loosed in heaven" meant. These teaching are what I believe represents this verse. [Luke 11:24-26] along with [Matthew 13:30], hey I could be wrong. I just ask that you chew on it for a while before you give me your diagnosis. Thanks Joseph

Since the term has a range of usage, that is why I was trying to show the reason with drinking. For example if Pharmakeia was to mean "Fortune-Telling" this would not be the result of faith, but of control. My problem is that many read this verse and see it as a list of things to not do. This would be it's own law in a fashion. The Question states: "What use of drugs is practicing a fleshly lifestyle". So I read it as discernment of 'fleshly lifestyle' or 'not'. However 'your' opinion matters to me, and I know that hermeneutics usually does word study. So I will do as you wish, with this post.

@Davïd That's OK, the question did not ask for the meaning of Pharmakeia. However the scope is defined, its base is from reason. The reasons on one side are fleshly, reasons on the other are deemed in Love. That doesn't mean that I displayed this meaning in a simplified easy to understand way. I'll hear suggestions ^^

comment Texts in second temple Judaism using “one like a son of man” as in Daniel 7 to refer to angel
So the "Son of Man" in concept means the "Speaking of a Man born of Adam". For Example: "Son of man, describe the temple to the house of Israel, that they may be ashamed of their iniquities; and let them measure the pattern." (Eze 43:10 NKJV) It is a direct communication to the "Spoken Words by Man". If you understanding this I suggest "Ezekiel 3". Blessings

comment Texts in second temple Judaism using “one like a son of man” as in Daniel 7 to refer to angel
Yes, and here is the difference. The Hebrew word for "Man" is "Adam". Therefore from the term "Son of Man", can mean "Son of Adam". Now this usage of the term "Son" is used as a "Inheritance to Feature" similarly found in 3-D Modelling. Where the Child Node connects to a Parent Node. With the understanding of how the Jews viewed the word Spirit as a "Wind" or "Breath", and this term is not as confined as a concept as western perspective, but uses an eastern perspective as the fullness of character, thought, and breath. The Breath Node is the parent to the Speaking Node.

comment Why does Jesus refer to himself as the “Son of Man” in Mark 2:10?
Yes, and this is how we are both right. The Hebrew word for "Man" is "Adam". So Jesus came formed as "Adam". Jesus the "Son of Adam" was a child through his "Mother". How he is the "Second Adam" is that God Breathed Life into the Woman. In similarity to Adam: "And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being." (Genesis 2:7 NKJV). In this case the Breath of Life came upon Mary.

comment What does it mean for a man to leave his father and mother?
It was Jewish Custom for the families to all live together. Part of the marriage ceremony was for the husband to add an addition to the family tent while the woman waited. This theme carries on to help explain the Parable of the Ten Virgins.
