    1 John 3:8 NIV
    (8) He who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil's work.

    Since we cannot count on Google to have spiritual understanding I tried the New Testament also. Would you like to explain the difference between "reason" and "purpose?"

      They already know monsters exist.

        You use scripture as a drunk uses a lamp post. For support rather than illumination.

        Don't you realise that the reason the translators used both words synonymously is that they don't understand the difference?
        I know Him, correctly, as Messiah whom you call Christ. Yah Shua whom you call Jesus. Messianists who you call Christians.

        "Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm".

        I refuse, point blank, to speak peace to the unregenerate, hypocrites, religious dogma lovers and those that oppose the following statement:
        A regenerate man trusts in the evangelism of salvation conditioned on the atoning blood and imputed justness of Messiah alone.
        If you are fully persuaded, by experience, of this delightful, beautiful and life giving doctrine then I love you as a brother.

        Anyone who thinks that salvation is conditioned on anything a man thinks, does or says is atheist. I cannot and will not speak peace to him or her.

        I don't make statements online that I wouldn't repeat in front of my Maker, my grandmother or a judge.

          The reason for the realm of time is to separate the perfection of eternity from the corruption of time. All that became in the realm of time is subject to time and will reach its conclusion. All that is eternal, speaks for itself.

            Why not lead with your reason in the OP?

            Why must most of your posts (and that of others given to this tactic) be a game of Whack-A-Mole ®?

            It may not be the intent of those that engage in this method, but the practice of asking a question then sitting back and denouncing answers proffered comes across as smugness (Matthew 5:37).

              First and foremostly it is not my reason. It is the reason and as such is available to all those that have an interest in the eternal.

              "Whack a mole" or expose a hypocrite who can only cut and paste from denominational creeds.

              If you don't like my methods then scroll past.

                Time separates the creation from the eternal. Time also separates events and allows prophesy to become. Time is a perfect means of separation. Time also allows a space for repentance. Time is a currency and can be used or abused. It can be invested or wasted. People attempt to save time, but where would you store it.

                In further answer to AMR's query about the ways I post. It is to give people time to ponder and I always hope that their ponderings will be rewarded, but there is little if any evidence of that, time will tell...

                      The measurement of time also grants us the gift of history from which man should learn. However, an old lecturer of mine on Church history pointed out that one lesson history teaches is that man seldom learns from history. Time will tell...

                            Time also leaves room for presumption. Man presumes that if there is a Creator and Judge the man has plenty of time to put things right before he meets his Maker.

                            The presumption is met with:

                            "Surely thou didst set them in slippery places: thou castedst them down into destruction".

                            In my word studies I have found that sometimes the best way to get the last drop of meaning out of a word is to look at the antonyms.I was going to post them, but I'll leave that to you. You've got pleanty of time, haven't you!
