The Pheromone of the Holy Spirit

For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.

(2 Peter 1:21) ESV

We, that’s me and the Holy Spirit, worked on an impromptu word study. You never know what you might find when you look at the original Hebrew and Greek texts.

Solianity

“‘I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.

(Revelation 3:15-16) ESV

The sun god Ra, Helios, and all its many forms has transitioned into the modern age of popular science (SciPop) by hitching a ride with Christianity.

Known of God

Davidson Analytical Hebrew and Chaldee Lexicon page CCXCVIII

Jesus answered him, “I have spoken openly to the world. I have always taught in synagogues and in the temple, where all Jews come together. I have said nothing in secret.

(John 18:20) ESV

“You can only be fully loved when you’re fully known,’ is heartwarming sentiment and it’s used as an exhortation to participate in small groups which meet between church services on week days.

Facultative Authority

Johnny Depp in Sweeny Todd

The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

(2 Thessalonians 2:9-12) NKJV

Facultative means: of or relating to the grant of permission, authority, or privilege. For us it describes a mode of argumentation where atheists take the perspective that the Bible is true.

Insects Evolved Wings

Praise the Lord from the earth, You great sea creatures and all the depths; Fire and hail, snow and clouds; Stormy wind, fulfilling His word; Mountains and all hills; Fruitful trees and all cedars; Beasts and all cattle; Creeping things and flying fowl; Kings of the earth and all peoples; Princes and all judges of the earth; Both young men and maidens; Old men and children.

(Psalms 148:7-12) NKJV

If we find insects with wings in the buried remains of a Mississippi swamp, does it mean that insects evolved wings in the swamp? No, it means that insects with wings were buried in a swamp.

Sharks and Bony Fish

So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. And God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.”

(Genesis 1:21-22) NKJV

Sedimentary deposits containing sharks and bony fish can be assigned to the Mississippian because of how the evolution narrative, of development from primitive to advanced, overlays with the geological timescale.

Spread of Amphibians

Who say to the seers, “Do not see,” And to the prophets, “Do not prophesy to us right things; Speak to us smooth things, prophesy deceits.

(Isaiah 30:10) NKJV

Amphibians were buried in a swamp. Does that mean that amphibians were spreading? No, it doesn’t, it means that amphibians lived in a swamp that got buried.
