A Nazarene Looks at the Book of Mormon Part 1 - Nazarene Space By James Scott Trimm The Book of Mormon makes a major mistake from a Nazarene standpoint. The Book of Mormon does not represent the teachings of the Bible, but instead presents the teachings Protestant Christians have BELIEVED are in the Bible. Although the Book of Mormon, unlike the Bible, presents a continuous story line running from "Old Testament Times" through into "New Testament Times"; the Book of Mormon is still clearly dividable into "Old Testament" and "New Testament" portions. Now in its "Old Testament Portion" the Book of Mormon teaches exactly what Christians WISH they could find in the "Old Testament" portion of the Bible. ...that our children may know the deadness of the law; and they by knowing the deadness of the law, may look forward unto that life which is in Christ, and know for what end the law was given. "...but I say to you, that the time shall come when it shall no more be expedient to keep the law of Moses." - Mosiah 13:27 (supposedly in 148 BC) James Trimm
Platonic Solids (PRIME) The so-called Platonic Solids are regular polyhedra. “Polyhedra” is a Greek word meaning “many faces.” There are five of these, and they are characterized by the fact that each face is a regular polygon, that is, a straight-sided figure with equal sides and equal angles: It is natural to wonder why there should be exactly five Platonic solids, and whether there might conceivably be one that simply hasn't been discovered yet. However, it is not difficult to show that there must be five—and that there cannot be more than five. First, consider that at each vertex (point) at least three faces must come together, for if only two came together they would collapse against one another and we would not get a solid. Now, each interior angle of an equilateral triangle is 60°, hence we could fit together three, four, or five of them at a vertex, and these correspond to to the tetrahedron, the octahedron, and the icosahedron. And that makes five regular polyhedra. Contributors , author Citation Info
Aboriginal Hebrews Black Hebrews? The very words cause many people to grin at what appears to be simply a play on words. No one reads about such people in european authored history books and there are only a few references to "Ethiopian Jews" in white Jewish sources. Yet Black Hebrews have existed since biblical times. Their story begins with the Patriarch Abraham (2117-1942 B.C.), a native of the Sumerian city of Ur in ancient Mesopotamia. It has been confirmed that the ancient Sumerians were akin to the modern Black Dravidians of India. This truth is grossly neglected, suppressed, and distorted in most European and American historical texts which are flavored with race prejudice. Biblical history relates that the descendants of Abraham, namely Jacob (Israel) and his twelve sons and their wives, 70 in all, migrated from Canaan to Egypt around the year 1827 B.C. The biblical Hebrews were indistinguishable from native Egyptians and Ethiopians. Dr. In 1896, a man by the name of William S.
