    Weekly Bible reading was Titus through Philemon. What you wont hear that Someone found interesting!

    Titus 2 --10 not stealing from them, but showing complete trustworthiness, so that in every way they may adorn the teaching of our Savior, God.

    13 while we wait for the happy hope and glorious manifestation of the great God and of our Savior, Jesus Christ, 14 who gave himself for us to set us free

    Titus chapter 3

    4 However, when the kindness of our Savior, God, and his love for mankind were manifested 5 (not because of any righteous works we had done, but because of his own mercy), he saved us by means of the bath that brought us to life and by making us new by holy spirit. 6 He poured this spirit out richly on us through Jesus Christ our Savior,

    Heres what I found interesting. The Saviour is interchanged between God and Jesus and in Titus 2:13 this saviour is joined to both God and Christ.

    this, to me, shows that if you believe God and Christ are of the same divine essence, or a trinity maybe, or even if you believe they are seperate beings or what have you, they are both our saviour....either way they are equal in this.

    John 5:18 This is why the Jews began seeking all the more to kill him, because not only was he breaking the Sabbath but he was also calling God his own Father, making himself equal to God.

    interesting thought i guess. 'Course if i had stated this in a comment Id be labelled an apostate by the time the next comment was made. Oh the LOVE they show. Hm

    The example of Paul caring about Philemon's sick servant was brought up. It really contradicts how the BOrg treat the elderly and infirm. Especially how they should not apply to attend and Interantional Convention.

    I really like how they say that they must be self sufficient BUT we will send you wherever the hell we feel like. What youre sent to london? Or scandinavia where its more expensive?
