The Forgotten Books of Eden: Fourth Book of Maccabees: Chapter I Sacred Texts Bible Apocrypha Index Previous Next Buy this Book at The Forgotten Books of Eden, by Rutherford H. Platt, Jr., [1926], at An outline of philosophy from ancient times concerning Inspired Reason. Civilization has never achieved higher thought. PHILOSOPHICAL in the highest degree is the question I propose to discuss, namely whether the Inspired Reason is supreme ruler over the passions; and to the philosophy of it I would seriously entreat your earnest attention. 2 For not only is the subject generally necessary as a branch of knowledge, but it includes the praise of the greatest of virtues, whereby I mean self-control. 3 That is to say, if Reason p. 178 is proved to control the passions adverse to temperance, gluttony and lust, it is also clearly shown to be lord over the passions, like malevolence, opposed to justice, and over those opposed to manliness, namely rage and pain and fear. 22 Under pleasure, also, comes that moral debasement which p. 179 p. 180

Agência Ecclesia - Flock How to Completely Anonymize Your BitTorrent Traffic with BTGuard Why Yahuwah & Yahushua Only World’s Last Chance is committed to presenting truth and truth alone as it is discovered from Scripture. Many organizations and individuals choose to ignore or bury any new truth that disagrees with their previously stated beliefs, assuming that people will lose faith in them if they have to make a course correction. When printed in books, preached to congregations or posted on a website, long-held beliefs seem cast in concrete. World’s Last Chance believes that truth is ever advancing and has covenanted to bring to its website advancing truth as it unfolds. There will be, therefore, older material that may seem inconsistent with newer postings. However, it is felt that the other truths in the previously written articles are still important and should not be taken off and discarded because of that inconsistency. An example is the use of the corrected name of the Creator, Yahuwah, and His Son, Yahushua. Scripture says that the Creator winks at the times of our ignorance (Acts 17:30).

Why "Yahushua"? Some have written me asking for an explanation of why I use the form "Yahushua" in reference to the Messiah while others use "Yahshua", "Yeshua" or "Yehoshua". The purpose of this study is to go through each of these pronunciations and determine which is the most correct. I'm not one that believes that you need to pronounce the Messiah's name exactly like I do in order to be saved. Acts 2:38 Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Yahushua Messiah for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. And this is just in the book of Acts! Origin of the name "Jesus" According to the American Heritage Dictionary, the etymological origin of "Jesus" is: Jesus ..Middle English, from Late Latin Isus, from Greek Isous, from Hebrew yû‘, from yhôûa‘, Joshua... Notice that it says that the origin of His name is from Latin, then Greek, then Hebrew. If you look up the name "Jesus" in a Strong's lexicon it has "Iesous": Yehoshua Yeshua

50 Kick-Ass Websites You Need to Know About - Page 1 It's time to update the entries in your browser's links toolbar. But with recent estimates putting the size of the internet at well more than 100 million distinct websites, it's getting harder and harder to get a handle on all the great stuff that's out there. That's why we've compiled this list. And unlike some lists you may have seen, which try to name the very "best" websites, but end up just telling you a lot of stuff you already know, we've chosen instead to highlight 50 of our favorite sites that fly under most people's radar. Think of it as the Maximum PC blog roll (remember those?). These sites represent great alternatives to popular web destinations like YouTube and Hulu, and include useful references, powerful web apps, and the unknown blogs you must absolutely bookmark. You might have heard of some of these sites, but we'll bet you haven't heard of all them. See What Can Be Done with 4 Kilobytes Clutter-Free Social Networking You can admit it.

A Composite of the four Gospels. The four Gospels are combined into a single text, not four side-by-side parallel Gospels. Have you ever read one of the four Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, or John) wishing that you could somehow read all four of the Gospels together, at the same time? You read one story and you remember that there is more to the story but where is it? Each of the four Gospels give only a part of the picture. So when we read any one of the four Gospels, by itself, we are missing much of the story. We can only get the whole picture when all four Gospels are read together. You can use your own Bible in trying to find the parallel stories in the four Gospels yourself. Biblical scholars have provided a very good way to study these parallel stories in the different gospels. It is very interesting to view the parallel texts side-by-side, but it is not easy reading because it is often difficult to figure out how the texts can fit together. Below is the same selection of text, but as they are found in this Composite Gospel. I chose to use a Harmony of the Gospels by A.
