I perceive a burden you bear, in your posts. It is very frustrating to see these things so clearly and those things articulated well only to be frustrated in the knowledge that one is arguing against an insurmountable will to disagree, from others. The passages you cite are endearing to me, as it is the word of GOD and not subject to 'after the fact' interpretation. GOD's WORD is GOD's WORD. Who dares believe in GOD and not believe HIS WORD? To NOT believe GOD's GIVEN WORD, is to deny GOD. Is it not? I like the way you logically advance your point.
