David Bauscher Peshitta Translation
The Texas RAT Wrote:As for your dictionary quote, it is not a credible dictionary because instead of taking the definition of the word from the language it was transliterated from they just used what modern day people are hoodwinked into believing it means.
And that believe/faith is what is most important. Sounds/Words change meaning depending on the culture in which they are used, therefore it is the faith or belief of the local populace that counts. If you really study Paul's ministry, you will see that he believed the same.

The Texas RAT Wrote:And if you think that it bears no fruit to try and teach the truth then why do you bother? I on the other hand think it does no good to sit back and let lies be taught, and therefore I think it is better to present the truth of the matter even if others try their best to belittle the truth, calling it pointless. And to you it might seem pointless, but as for fruitless I doubt that just because you can not receive it does not mean that no one else will
Did you know that I've read the entire Scripture, front to back, using what I believed to be the divine names (a variation of the Tetragrammaton and other names such as Elohim instead of G-d, Set-Apart instead of Holy, etc.), having once believed the exact same thing as you? I even tried to teach such things but the Holy Spirit did not permit me and exposed the error of my beliefs in due time. So in case you're wondering, I've been there and done that, and praise the Almighty, I was brought out of it. There are no lies being taught here, only linguistic misunderstanding and cultural misinterpretations. These I came to understand from a diligent study of the original languages and a heart open to receive from our Heavenly Father.

As for the question of bearing fruit, I encourage you to forget about being right and defending your theology, and instead for the sake of your life honestly ask yourself if you are bearing fruit because of this. If, after having been convinced of this theology, you are truly better off? If your relationship with your Heavenly Father is any better? Has this helped you to bring anyone to a saving knowledge of Meshikha? Has it brought joy, warmth and comfort to the people in your life? Right now we are merely engaged an internet debate, but those are the pertinent questions that truly matter for your life once the browser window is closed. So please consider that, and in the meantime, we can simply agree to disagree <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/smile.gif" alt="Smile" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->

Amen. And one thing not mentioned in your list is the meaning of the Tetragrammaton, which can be broken down a number of ways such as "He Exists/Breathes" or "He Is / He Who Is" which can be paraphrased as "the Eternal One" or "the Self-Existing One". Truly, it denotes His eternal nature, the fact that He is "ein sof" - without end (or beginning), and does not change. The very source of everything. Reminds me of a song we sing in Shul sometimes based on a passage in Revelations - "Asher haya, v'hoveh, v'yavoh" - who was, who is and who is to come!

Shabbat shalom.
