What is a vaccine against homosexuality? Is there such a thing? This issue may be answered by the statements of Pope Francis when he warned against “administering a vaccine against faith”. And the publisher fully agrees with him that there is such a thing.
When the Pope mentioned ‘vaccine against faith”, definitely, he is referring to “faith” as a disease because vaccines are only intended to prevent diseases. But when he further warned against ‘administering’ the vaccine, then he logically means that he is warning against the prevention of a disease. (more…)
Nowadays, seldom you could find a preacher teaching “oral sex” as forbidden “meat eating”. Instead, you could find priests and preachers, who are fun of sex organs. At the same time, they are silent on the issue and some are allegedly forgiving and accommodating to homosexuals, lesbians and heterosexuals, who are also sexually “eating” the same organs.
Note that animals were given as food according to Genesis 9:2-3. ( 2All the animals, birds and fish will live in fear of you. They are all placed under your power. 3Now you can eat them, as well as green plants; I give them all to you for food (Today’s English Version)). (more…)
Homosexual and lesbian desires, just like pedophilia and bestiality, are viewed by laymen as psychological anomalies. In fact, even some of these involved individuals admit the abnormalities to be so, especially, if taking into consideration the anatomical aspect of the issue. Others would justify the aberrant sexual desires by proposing that ‘God created them to be so, hence, their behaviors are still within normal limits’. But others would cry out their grievances against the prevailing belief on sex for discriminating their desires by assailing the prevailing laws on marriage between man and woman, as if their abnormal behaviors deserve equal protection of law.
Based on the above belief and allegation, are these homosexuals and lesbians, who are extensions of homosexuality behavior, entitled to equal protection of law on marriage despite the proposition that ‘Satan is gay? How do we know that Satan is gay or doing homosexual acts? (more…)
Filipino language has an equivalence for forbidden meat. But like sodomy, the term is being understood as not connected to the prohibition “eating meat with blood still in it” but may be deeply noted to be just the same, as it is still a type of sexual perversion.
Thus, if you happen to talk to a man, who would boast his sexual prowess done to a woman or the unusual effort of the woman, the discussion would always be taken not in a biblical perspective but on a sexual sense.
The violation of prohibition, which maybe sexually “eating” by a man or by the woman of the other’s genitalia, is not being consciously considered. Instead, the discussion would usually end up in “laughter”, “enjoyable and light conversion“, “bragging”, etc.
Tradition and hesitance on the part of preachers to confront the issue resulted in the contamination of the meaning of the prohibition, especially, at present,when pornography is rampant. Worst, some priests are helping in the promotion of the prohibited act. (more…)
What is the connection between forbidden meat and destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah? Is there any logical connection between them? After discussing the “Concluding topic on Procreation and Prohibited Meat“, let us connect the prohibited act to actual scriptural event, to confirm whether or not the Words indeed are referring to a living human meat or animal meat.
The subject verse states, to wit:
4The one thing you must not eat is meat with blood still in it; I forbid this because the life is in the blood.(Genesis 9:4, TEV)
We will try to see, based on scriptural evidence, if in case of its violation, it had indeed resulted to punitive actions. But when we say punitive actions, let us agree that it means punitive actions by the One who spoke, to the exclusion of punitive actions by parents, preachers, imams, etc, who are not the origin of the Words.
Why punitive actions, by the way? Because, the words were spoken immediately after the flood. They can be used as a clue to the gravity of the “prohibited act” in the eyes of the One who spoke the prohibition, (more…)
Before proceeding to the articles on application of the rules on human procreation stated in9:1-7, we will review first and try to have a concluding sub-topic on forbidden meat, otherwise known as “Eating Meat with Blood Still in it“.
In the first topic, “What is it” readers were introduced to five major and five minor elements of Genesis 9:1-7 verses 1-7, to wit;
1. General statement- Taking a human life is punishable. (Verses 5 and 6).
- If the one taking a human life is an animal, God will punish the animal with death. (Verse 5)
- If the one taking is a human being, then God permitted other human being to kill him. (Verse 6)
- There is distinction on the procedure of punishment between human beings and animals. (Verse 5 and 6)
2. Human beings are superior to animals.(Verse 2)
- Human beings are permitted to (more…)
What is the significance of the opening and closing procreation statements in prohibited meat? And what are these opening and closing procreation statements? Merriam-Webster dictionary defines “procreate” as “to produce children or offspring”.
As an example of the word, it cites “procreate” for animals, as follows: “animals have a natural instinct to procreate”.
To look into the operational definition of The Word on “procreate”, we will review some verses in the “Word” to have a comprehensive and full understanding of the word “procreate”.
This is to understand how to apply the word in human beings and animals. And whether or not the definition and example given by Merriam-Webster dictionary is comprehensive enough.
The “Word” states as follows:
15 God said to Noah, 16 “Go out of the boat with your wife, your sons, and their wives. 17 Take all the birds and animals out with you, so that they may reproduce and spread over all the earth.” 18 So Noah went out of the boat with his wife, his sons, and their wives. 19 All the animals and birds went out of the boat in groups of their own kind. (Genesis 8:15, TEV).
In God’s Word, is there any prohibition/condition pertaining to the act to procreate for animals and birds? None.
For Human Beings:
9 God blessed Noah and his sons and said, “Have (more…)
What is the scriptural difference between human and animal meat? And what is its significance to the discussion on prohibited or forbidden meat?
We have previously discussed the following topics concerning the verse, to wit: 1) What is it? 2) the Logic of the Words, and 3) the Circumstances when Words were Spoken, with the subject verse stating as follows:
4The one thing you must not eat is meat with blood still in it; I forbid this because the life is in the blood. (Genesis 9:4, TEV)
The previous discussions logically point to a human meat as the one beingto be eaten, if with blood still in it.
The verb “eat” and it’s counterpart
Now, let us try to dissect the verb “eat” that is being used in the verse. Eating is a function of the (more…). Aside from , there are other functions
