Come unto me, all ye who are weary and heavy-laden and I will give you Rest. Matthew 11:28.

The grace and salvation of the Almighty does not require us to believe in Him.

It requires us to believe in ourselves and in the future of the human race. It requires fulfilling that one and only one contract He has with the Universe - the cyclical renewal phenomenon that even electrons obey - the Rest state.

Fulfilling the Sabbath contract is the only path to salvation for humankind and the Universe. There is neither new nor old testament, as the Sabbath contract is the one and only testament between Creator and Creation.

comment What does 1 Corinthians 9:27 literally say?
Paul sounds very paganistic - penance himself by punishing himself violently.

comment A woman is not to put on a man's dress?
Off topic - why are fundamentalists often are at each other's throats accusing each other of "false teachings"? Just curious.

comment What does it mean that the least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than John the Baptist?
I would like to add that Jethro(father-in-law of Moses) and Jesus advocated that representative Democracy in its purest form is the kingdom of heaven.

comment Does “foundations of the earth” in Job 38:4 refer to just the earth, or is it a metaphor for more?
I think the Hebrew compound word refers to "founding of the earth" rather than the "foundation of the earth".

comment Satan: Stumbling Block or Accuser?
I don't find your Hebrew etymology of the word accepted anywhere. I don't trust Christian derived evolution/derivation of the word. I must need more education on this word - and I cannot trust Christian sources.

comment Satan: Stumbling Block or Accuser?
“enemy” is very different from “adversary”. As much as an unflinching tyrant is very different from a merciless prosecutor. So is a "devil" different from the "satan".

comment Does Romans 13:8 include a prohibition of taking loans?
So too, this generation is (and many generations have been) living in heightened messianic expectation. So much so, that many messianic expectators/spectators have indulged in despoiling the environment believing that there is no point in conserving the planet - nonchalantly consequently killing millions thro climate change because a messiah is coming to repair the planet and because their messiah says that they will always have the poor.

comment Ecclesiastes 11:1-2 Puzzlement
Tashlich is usually performed on the first day of Rosh HaShanah, except if it falls on Shabbat - but could be performed anytime before end of Sukkot. Unfortunately תשליך is not the same root spelling as תשלח.

Further note: In my request to debunk my suggestions grammatically, it also includes using means of contextually related references.

comment Should John 1:18 read “the only begotten God”?
You need to explain that the word μονογενὴς is mono-produced. So μονογενὴς θεός does not mean the "only god" but "the only produced god", "the only created god", or "the only begotten god". It can't be denied that this passage describes an entity that is produced/reproduced/created. So that the possibility exists that the passage says "the only reproduced/created god".

comment What is the sign of the Son of Man?
For goodness' sake, I don't know how to pronounce this word. Smoo-e-io, smoo-e-ion? That reminds me of the schmoo chart in signal analysis of electronic signatures. Schmoo being originated from abner's pet that the cartoonist simply drew in the cartoon strip Lil' Abner.

comment What is the sign of the Son of Man?
"The only speculation, that I feel is possibly true, is that the sign is the miraculous prediction of the majority of the Jewish nation converting to Christianity" - Christians and Muslims feel so vindicated about their religion when Jews convert, don't they??!!! It's like a trophy - like the moose or bear or wolf head trophies that hangs high on the wall at the Bugaboo Creek restaurants in Maine. To be shown off to everyone.

comment Was 'σκύβαλον' (skubalon) profanity?
It is like Queen Victoria, the Empress of India. With the advent of Victorian age, many ideas and expressions considered acceptable became profane. With the advent of Pauline theology, I guess similar phenomenon happened in the mid-east and Roman empire.

comment Was 'σκύβαλον' (skubalon) profanity?
It's impossible to make a point on this issue because profanity as we understand today is highly correlated to obscenity and vulgarity - which are considered art forms and elegance in those days. The elegance is how well you could articulate your obscenities. So to be profanely elegant or elegantly profane would have been a very commendable skill then.

comment Why do many chinese Bibles translate “Logos” in John 1:1 as 道 (Dao)?
youtube.com/watch?v=DA-AkJzpKmg&feature=related - I have been very intrigued by the claims of this pastor. So I googled the pastor's name and found that that he was currently under investigation for misuse of church funds - huffingtonpost.com/2012/06/26/…

comment Who are the “divine beings” in Psalm 82?
Zechariah Sitchin and the History Channel propounds the belief they are aliens. Isaac Asimov suggested the use of the plural in various passages signify a transition/power struggle from/between paganistic pantheism to/with monotheistic Israel - as evidenced by the ideological struggle between northern and southern kingdoms that had lay nascent until the death of Solomon.

Given the oft debated nature of the Song of Songs in its purpose (1. to show the love of Christ for the Church ??? Songs of Songs was written before Jesus.
