Easy: smoke and mirrors don't help you or Barbey at all. Let's look again and PLEASE try and stay substantial!Have Fun and God Bless
Deuteronomy 17:17 Neither shall he multiply wives to himself, that his heart turn not away: neither shall he greatly multiply to himself silver and gold.
NOTICE what Barbey and Neo did (dishonestly): They took out the second part of the verse! It is in CONJUNCTION AND CONTEXTUALLY that we understand this verse! I don't care about Barbey's PhD. I have a Masters, good enough. Barbey and Neo are simply wrong! Contextually! I don't NEED to redress my post: They BOTH need to pay attention to what I actually proved and NOT truncate scripture! It infuriates me! You are lying when you do so! It is INCREDIBLY dishonest, not academic and amounts to a damnable lie (because man is trying to edit God). I then posted, not so much to get away from Deuteronomy but to enforce it: 1 Corinthians 7:2 to prove, clearly, that Barbey and Neo are wrong:
I'm right, you are wrong. You clearly tried to obfuscate. Everyone in thread can see it. Your mind might work this way, but I suggest you pay attention to God instead of trying to prove misconceptions in your own head. You are responsible 1) to God, 2) to the VAST majority of those with enough skills to read and grasp the full of their bibles against you 3) to me in particular because you chose to be dishonest with me, AGAIN! 4) Yourself. Don't give yourself room to lie to yourself in your ignorance and pride. You are a child in a man's body doubling down: reread my post. It proves, conclusively, you are wrong. YOU are the one that cut out scripture purposefully and rendered it violently from the text! Deuteronomy 17:17 BY CONTEXT says "No!" clearly to the first BECAUSE it clearly allows 'some' to the second! Do you EVEN grasp that? Did Barbey? No. I also accuse any professor you have of being inept or dishonest on this point as well if they stand with your incompetence. It is important that I am responsible to his/her correction: They need it. I've given it. Print this out and show it to his/her. -Lon"Who cares what barbey a.c. et al thinks?" 1 Corinthians 7:2: But because of sexual immorality, each man should have his own wife, and each woman should have her own husband. Oops, clearly (clearly) Barbey and Neo are wrong.
No, you and he aren't correct. The scripture says 1) "not multiply wives." Do you KNOW what a 'multiple (rahbah) ' is???? "to increase after one!" In the next breath of the sentence 'and not money/wealth (don't multiply) "greatly" either!' IOW, the first: a prohibition, none at all (after the first)! The second? Not to 'overdo it "WITH MONEY/Wealth!"' EXACTLY opposite what you and Barbeyac (dishonestly?) want (desperately?) to believe! The first says "No increase!." The SECOND says 'not exceed.' You and whoever Barbey is, blew it. I EXPECT you to not be strong-willed in ignorance. I EXPECT you to apologize when you realize you've been purposefully ignorant and arrogant.
