on another rnadomly amusing blog, where some folks are cliaming that mark driscoll is not ...dangerous?? ...not flaccid?? a manly man??
the idea was offered that Jesus, Word Made Flesh is sarcastic when speaking to the woman at the well. (john 4ish for those whio want to foolow along from whatever random trasnlations are approved by...whoever... it's handy for me to stick to kjv...i figure of shakepearan english was good enuff for Jesus, it's goof enuff for me... o..wait.. Jesus spoke aramaic, so all the discussion about "what Jesus said" whn had by people who don;t wanna look at tri-consonental roots are kinda like people holding stuff up to a mirror and asking their friends "Does this doctrine make me look fat??"
those who are used to accepting driscoll, piper, et al as authroitative might take a look at an onjective source or 3 on this "Messiah" issue, and samaritans.
so... somebody,,,lol... who evidently thinks there is soe othr "subhect" to the New Testament other than Jesus, offers that when Jesus tells the woman at the well, yeah, I know, the dude is not ur husband..so..this is somehow a "techincality". of course, if the offerer of this thought cannot show me examples of samaritan marraige law....i;m gomna figure "technicaloty" is some effeminate term for "she has an active social life"...thus, i ask him:
realllly, name me the technicality here.
she says, when she could easily lie, she has no husband.
He's "forcing her" ??? to do what??
see that the Messiah is standing there??
she "changes the subject" ????
4:19 The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet.
and so she asks, directly, is a Noahite or Mosaic placing of ther point on worship more correct.
and Jesus, being Messiah, and not a manly man wanting to make sure she gets this whole sin thing properly, sees herelf as the idol worshippin slut that everybody >>is<<. not "in effect" as some flaccid softening of tone for palatbility and political correctness: >is<,
goesto the point that
:"when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him."
and woman, in her imperfect holiness stays on point:
:"The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things."
and once again, Jesus refuses to call her out on her foibles, but proclaims the Living Christ:
:"4:26 Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he."
so what does the woman do??? she proclaims Christ:
:"4:29 Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ?"
what is it the manly disciples do???
o yeah... they woof at Jesus for talking to her.
Jesus Says: "My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work."
so..what's driscoll's meat, other than not flaccid?
