It's very easy to link from another user. The propteries can tell, where the pic comes from.

That's irrelevant.  My point is that if I have a username "dientamin" on photobucket, does it mean that I'm "dientamin" on the entire Internet, everywhere this name appears?  

Edit:  thank you for helping answer my question!

The "photobucket" link for the pictures belongs to a person who has been banned here - dientamin

Would that be you returning?


How do you link a photobucket account with a username on a forum?  

If I was "stephanie767" on photobucket and there was a banned stephanie767 on here, that doesn't mean I'm the same person!

Man translated it, not God, and man is fallible.  

But God is omnipotent and everpresent. Do you believe that our Lord would let man fail in tranfering His word to the world and it's peoples? No, faith in the divine spirts ability is what you are lacking. The Bible was placed into this world by God and through man. Man could never write such a perfect text.

God gave us free will.  I'm free (as are billions of others) to translate my own rough version of the original texts, however faulty, and give it to someone, and they may never know the difference.  I feel that only the original texts can be trusted totally.  Those are the texts that were "placed into this world by God and through man," not the translations.

I am loving this place. I got linked here by a friend and I can't help feeling a Strong and Loving presence here Grin . I just wanted to ask Acedia why the idea that the word of God would change through language cyphers ever occured to him? God wouldn't let His text truely lose His meaning simply from a change in wording or language.

Again, hello and thank you for existing. Finally an oasis from the rest of the sinful internet.

Man translated it, not God, and man is fallible.

I have a friend who, at her church, is learning to read, write, speak, etc. Koine Greek, which is the language the New Testament was written in.  I found it very interesting that when read in Greek, and then read in English, some details or the overall feeling of a passage can be changed.  She feels that learning to read this language has helped her understand the Bible much better than before.  

Anyone else had an experience like this?  I'm interesting in learning this too, along with learning to speak Hebrew (Old Testament), to see what more I can draw from the original texts.  
6  Theology / General Theology / What is this image/symbol? on: August 06, 2005, 07:01:14 PM
I am wondering what this particular image/symbol is.  I had never run across it before today, and am wondering what it is.  I have a few pictures of it:  

It's the little thing that appears to be a wounded heart with thorns around it, and a burning cross on the top.  What is this?  What does it mean, or represent, or whatever?  What's its history?
