    No, friend. Let's deal with the meaning of those 3 verses FIRST. Since this is the THIRD TIME I ask you to tell your understanding of three simple verses, indeed, you ARE playing games to avoid having a conversation based upon mutual understanding.

    Everyone reading this thread can see your deliberate evasions.

    The fact that all of us are sinners and thus have fallen short of the glory of God is important if we are able to establish what those three, now four verses that I quoted all mean in context

    I do not plan to ignore those types of verses, but to look at them separately, and have no foundation such as the three verses I outlined in the OP is to avoid the very important context.

    Here is another one of those important "context verses"

    John 3:17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.​

    Again, you need to go back to the beginning to see who you is.

    But that aside, are you actually saying witches are believers?

    God hates witchcraft, not witches.

    May I ask what dog you have in this fight? I mean are you a witch or contemplating such, or do you know someone who is a witch so you need to justify things?

    There is no basis for that interpretation in anything I posted.

    O.k. something worth discussing in John 3:17 is who would be condemning the world. The Trinity means that the Son is part of God, so I assume it would not be some other part of God who is condemning the world. Maybe the Father would be condemning, but another possibility might be Satan. Satan is my guess.

    What's your thought?

    You are simply jumping to absurd, improbable conclusions that have no basis in ANYTHING I posted here.

    Sounds like an evasion to me. Further more, if I may be so bold, I think you know God doesn't like witches.

    No, that is 100% wrong, I am merely asking a question, and the fact you evaded that question as you did, speaks for itself.

    Since you believe that is "worth discussing" could you please create a new thread for it?

    You are attempting to establish something about a topic on which I have been silent. Therefore, you are merely guessing, projecting, and off topic. I AM NOT THE ISSUE. Scripture is the issue here. In advance, I thank you for your cooperation on this.

    I thought this was going to be a discussion and not a "find the hidden agenda" rabbit trail, so I'll just move on then, thanks!

    o.k. we won't discuss that here. I'm having difficulty understanding what it is that you want to discuss, so I guess I will give up for now.

    No "hidden agenda" here. It is the obvious agenda of some to derail this away from my original intentions. I can use the words "obvious agenda" because so far, no one has attempted to deal with the meaning of those three verses in the OP.

    I will say this, my intention is to create a very positive discussion about the nature and attributes of God, based upon Scriptures, which some are making obvious attempts to derail.

    Your silence has spoken, and I had already left it at that.

    Me too, but I can tell you what he doesn't want to discuss.

    JohnT can you please tell us what you are expecting from posters here, as your OP was not exactly clear on that? Thanks.

    Yes of course! Though continued participation will cause desolation.
    Be blessed.

    Your are trying to address unbelievers with Bible verses addressed to believers, what does that accomplish.
