    This Congressman deserves a standing ovation and be re-elected.

    Any “Christian” who objects to the Word of God being on a table, is no Christian or has back slidden!

    Once again Mikey, open you ears here and listen, because I don’t want you to prove the prophet Isaiah correct when he ask God to do this to his fellow Jews “Make the heart of this people dull, and their ears heavy, and blind their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their hearts, and turn and be healed.”

    The bible is not Christian in origin, yes Christians do read and use it, but all the authors of the books of the bible were Jewish, except for Luke. Both Old and New Testament are Jewish scriptures. For the first 100 years after Christ rose from the dead, the believers were Jewish and worshiped in a synagogue.

    Now I know that God has put a veil over the eyes of the Jewish people and I pray that it will be lifted from your eyes Mikey for you to see and recognize that Jesus / Yeshua is the one and only Messiah of the Jewish people and the world.

    Which “Word of God” should be on that table, Bob? Bhagavad Gita? Upanishads? Book of Mormon? Tibetan Book of the Dead? How about the sacred books of Wicca, Buddhism, Zoroastrianism, New Thought communities? Oh, and there are so many more! See, in your apparently unenlightened mind, the bible (whichever version you prefer–perhaps the children’s comic book) is THE word of god, but it is merely A book of god, no more or less than these others. Now, no more talk of veils and prayers and prophets and scriptures and worship. None of those practices have the least thing to do with the United States Government and its military and, especially, its Constitution.

    Paula,

    There is only one Word of God that is theopneustos, which is Greek for God breathed. All the others are mans words!

    Rev,

    And what word would that be? If it’s a Bible, which one? King James, NIV, etc? If it’s a specific version, how do you know that’s the right one?

    Does your version have the verses where God orders the Israelites to murder infants, the elderly, and women and children?

    “There is only one Word of God that is theopneustos, which is Greek for God breathed.”

    Gee Rev Bob, I was raised that God’s name was God.

    G,

    There are several names used for God in scripture, you have Jehovah, Yahweh, Adonai, Elohim, Jehovah-Nissi, Jehovah-Rapha, and many more, all the names describe a certain aspect of His character.

  7. Rev Bob

    The Guy,

    Does not matter which version, each version has been translated from the original Hebrew and Greek texts of the scripture.

  8. G

    “There are several names used for God in scripture, you have Jehovah, Yahweh, Adonai, Elohim, Jehovah-Nissi, Jehovah-Rapha, and many more, all the names describe a certain aspect of His character.”

    I was never told about God being called those names: Adonai, Elohim, Jehovah-Nissi, Jehovah-Rapha.

    “There is only one Word of God that is theopneustos, which is Greek for God breathed. All the others are mans words!”

    If god has so many names, then why did you pick the Greek name for God?

  9. Rev Bob

    I am not sure what you mean that I pick the Greek name for God, do you mean Adonai?

    Here is a link which you will find most if not all of the names of God in the OT

    Rev Bob, you are the one that pick the Greek word theopneustos , not me. Make up your mind.

  11. Rev Bob

    G,

    All theopneustos means is “God breathed” in reference to the bible, it is not a name for God.

  12. G

    Well, Reve Bob, no religious teacher informed me of that Greek word so blame the church authorities for not doing their jobs properly.

  13. Rev Bob

    G,

    No biggy

  14. G

    Rev Bob, right back at you.
