    Since it has been implied that anyone who opens a Bible and begins to expand upon its content is "preaching", what are your views?

    Of note to those who are so concerned with my reply to bROTHER eD,(yes, the captials are on purpose for the following, no disrespect intended on my behalf so any suspected is only on your behalf and thus makes you solely responsible for the impugnation) anytime something as wonderful, something completely and individually singualr in event as the Virgin Birth, and may I add Immacualte! one should ALWAYS refer to that event in script form with captilization to show the proper emphasis and due respect to that event.

    So when he referred to that event in paranthesis and without proper capitalization is when I mnade my illustrious remark that maybe he didn't ascribe the The Virgin Birth, but rather he does ascribe to "a" virgin birth.:applause:

    I feel justified in my remark due to there has never been, no will there ever be, nor could there be, any birth so worthy of such recognition!!!:jesus:

    My "complaint" is now registered.

    re: pontification

    I'm t'other Ed, not the one to whom you are here referring, but I will allow my alter ego to ask a question and give a comment, nonetheless. LC, you're on!

    "Are you now ascribing the occurence of 'The Virgin Birth' "of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ", the equivalent of God , here, or at least Deity to the event itself? Our Lord was "born King of the Jews", when "God was manifested in the flesh", in Bethlehem, but the birth, itself, is not Deity!

    That is exactly what you are suggesting, with this, with the misuse of upper-case letters, whether or not that is your intent. The particular Bible version you appear to believe in (and that apparently only about 10% over 100% of the time :rolleyes: ), in no place, of which I'm aware, ever 'capitalizes' the word "birth", in reference to that of the Lord Jesus. Nor is the phrase "virgin birth" even to be found in the KJV, RV, or ASV, at all. So how come you should suddenly be allowed to do this??

    BTW, the words you are searching for are "singular" (not singualr); "Immaculate" (not Immacualte, which is properly not capitalized, here, as well); and "made" (not mnade).

    Complaint dismissed!"

    I think (and hope) the OP meant expound on the Bible, rather than expand on it.
