    Bro. Bobby!! Its probably the same difference as the question

    Is this glass of water half full or half empty??

    But its worth a good search on bible words----you're a preacher of the word, aren't you??? Do your own search of the blood and thus settle the question "once and for all!!!"

    By the way---I noticed that your home town is Quitman, LA!! Near the site of my old university Alma Matter-----LTU!!!! Ruston, LA!! They didn't "learn me a thang!!!!!":laugh: :laugh:

    I would say poured... and emptied.

    Spilled implies not all was lost, that He retained some. But when He showed Himself to the eleven, He was flesh and bones... without blood. All was emptied out between the court and the cross.

    If one does a study on the Greek word for 'shed' in Matthew 26:28, one can only come to the conclusion that Christ's blood was poured out.

    Luk 22:20

    Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup [is] the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.

    Rev 16:2¶And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and [upon] them which worshipped his image.

    2Sa 14:14For we must needs die, and [are] as water spilt on the ground, which cannot be gathered up again; neither doth God respect [any] person: yet doth he devise means, that his banished be not expelled from him.

    I would say neither, I would say "shed".

    I suppose it would have been wise to ask what his real objection was. Sounds hyper-sensitive to me.

    When I spill something, I have just wasted it...
    Jesus' blood was not wasted.
    I like the word poured better...

    Spilt also sounds like an accident.
    "I spilt a glass of milk"
    Meant I didn't mean to.

    Jesus meant to give up his blood.
    He shed his blood, poured it out... but it wasn't an accident, nor was it wasted... so I intentionally stay away from "spilt"

    But that is just me. I would not correct someone over it.

    I think they're all correct because what these words actually mean is that Christ gave up His life....for us.

    Amen, Amy.

    "One day a plain village woman,
    driven by love for her Lord,
    suddenly poured out a valuable essence,
    disregarding the scorn,

    and one it was broken and spilled out,
    a fragrance filled all the room,
    like a prisoner released from his shackes,
    like a spirt set free from the tomb,

    ............

    Broken and spilled out,
    for the love of me, Jesus,
    God's most precious treasure,
    lavished on me,

    Broken and spilled out,
    and poured at my feet,
    in sweet abandon,
    let me be broken,
    and spilled out for thee."

    I don't believe that spilled or poured is scripture but I could be wrong. I do find myself defended in my sermons that none of Christ's blood was wasted, so this has been an issue with me over the years. I would not say anything to anyone who used "poured or spilt" but for me I use what the scripture says and that is "shed". A lot of sayings in sermons is picked up from songs and I have been called on it for using them over the years. You hear something so much from the time you were a small boy in songs and sermons that you take them to be actual scripture when they in fact are not. I still get things wrong after all these years but try to correct myself when my attention is called to it. Pelple love to tell the Preacher "that is not scripture" or "could you tell me where to find that"?
    I suspect that was the case in the OP.

    I don't have a problem with any of them.

    In regards to "spilt", as DQuixote pointed out, a vase can be broken, and it's contents spilled out. You can break the vase deliberately or by accident, so spilt doesn't necessarily mean by accident, either.

    Can we get back to insulting each other or arguing over calvinism vs. free-willism? This stuff about spilt/poured/etc. and alchohol is getting really boring.

    On a serious note, I believe that all three terms, 'poured' and 'shed', specifically, and 'spilled', by implication, are Biblical terms, and refer to the death of the Lord Jesus on Mt. Moriah, and as AmyG. said, this is what it refers to. I'm sure I, personally, can and do find other things far more consequential than the use or misuse of these three terms.

    (One of these days someone is actually going to comment on the 'Mt. Moriah' bit, but I'm not holding my breath while waiting.)

    Heard a sermon re Mt Moriah : As Abraham’s son carried the wood of the sacrifice up Mt Moriah so Gods son carried the wood of the sacrifice up Mt Moriah , and his blood was (shed,spilt,or poured out,) and went down the earthquake crack into the cave where Jeremiah had hid the ark of the covenant, and poured onto the mercy seat.

    Is this along the lines you were referring to Ed ??

    No, it had nothing to do with Jeremiah, for I'd not heard that, to my recollection, but it is irrelevant. There was no earthly "ark of the covenant", for the blood to be applied to when "Abraham offered up Isaac", and the earthly "ark of the covenant" was in the temple, when our Lord was crucified, and not below in some cave. In either case, gravity did not cause the "shed blood" of either the ram, or the Lord to cover the earthly 'mercy seat', but it is a nice try, and you are getting there with the comment of 'carrying the wood'. And thanks for the input, BTW. Try again. :)
