I have read through your paper concerning divorce and remarriage. I agree with most of your remarks. There is however one atatement, let's say I do not understand. In Matthew 19:9, JESUS states "I say unto you", not Moses but Jesus, that "whosoever shall put away his wife, EXCEPT for fornication". So reading this there is one exception, and that is fornication. But this is not what you are saying. Can you please clarify this for me?

Subject: Women Ministers
City: San Diego
Mr. Tony Warren and Mountain Retreat friends,
I am a housewife in San Diego California, and I came across your site while searching for information on women ministers for my Bible study. Upon searching for Ruth and reformed theology I came across your website and I have become hooked on the excellent articles I have found here. Thank you so very much for a great website just chock full of so much useful information and theology. I have learned a wealth of things in just the short time I have been here. It's indeed wonderful to see people working so hard doing the Lord's work and remaining faithful to the bible. Your Eschatology section is a home run. Just amazing how all things work together for good to them that love God. God Bless you.

Subject: The Real Sabbath
Name: Nancy Jackson
The Sabbath is Saturday (from Friday sunset to Saturday sunset). God created the Sabbath as a day to rest from labors and remember him as the creator. The Sabbath is not a "Jewish Sabbath," since it was given to all mankind at creation before there ever was a Jew. Jesus kept the Sabbath and called himself "Lord of the Sabbath." The early Christian churches kept the Sabbath until 300 years after Jesus's dealth, when Constantine, of Rome, changed the worship from Sabbath to Sunday and mingled the pagan religion with the Christian. Paul preached in the churches on Sabbath, and he often traveled on the first day of the week (Sunday). Paul would not have used the Sabbath as a major travel day, according to the Jewish culture. There is no command to keep Sunday as a holy day in the Bible, and the early Christians did not keep Sunday as a holy day.

Subject: Mother Mary
I want to say up front that I am Roman catholic. I just read the article by Tony Warren, "Did Jesus have Brothers and Sisters". I think that the author takes to much upon himself because the bible can be interpreted in many different ways. As a catholic, I have reverence and respect for Mary, and I don't believe that she had more children. Just because the bible says Jesus had brothers and sisters does not mean Mary had more children. It's all in the way you look at scripture. The Catholic Church has not been wrong all these years, your site seems anti Catholic, and you should stick to fixing Protestant doctrines.

Just a few lines to thank you for your article on Tattoos. It is a topic that is current and well needed, as our younger pastors are perverting so many of the old ways and tearing down the wisdom that came with them, with their new age interpretations. Tattoos are not Christina, they are pagan, and always has been. May the mountain Retreat continue to shine over the earth.

If it were true that your free will is what saves you, why does John say in John 1:12,13, "But as many as received him,(looks like His free will, not mine) to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man,(the new birth is performed by God's free will, not ours) but of God."(KJV) If God didn't initiate salvation, and it were up to our free will, no one would be saved. "There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God." Rom. 3:11(KJV)

I would just like to express my appreciation for the Center for Biblical Theology and Eschatology website. For most of my life I have been a member of a Dispensational congregation. But thanks to your center, I am no longer holding that position. The reason is that through your insistance that we study the bible carefully, I have come to realize that this is a twisted view that is not found anywhere in scripture. It wasn't easy, but thanks to your website I have come to see the truth.
So thanks to you and those at the Mountain retreat.

Subject: Bible Versions
To Mountain Retreat Bible center,
The author of this site lets us all know in no uncertain terms about his distaste for all the special versions of the Bible out there - Versions like the The Student Bible, The Living Bible, The Seniors Devotional Bible, The Knowing Jesus Bible, The NIV, The Life Promises Bible, the Beginner's Bible, etc. Who are you to tell us that these are not relatively faithful translations?
It seems that you think that all these new editions are an attempt to water down scripture and a marketing ploy to get sales, but I must respectfully disagree. The Bible text in these versions are basically the same as in the KJV. Minus the unimportant passages, the hard words and antiquated language. You all should remember, the bible has to modernize just like people. You're not going to bring hip kids to God by the use of the KJV of the bible. Wise Up!

You epitomize the statement made by Yahshuah when he said in Ma 15:6 "by your tradition you make the Word of God of non effect". He (Yahshuah) is the Word of God. Your PAGAN teaching of a triune God, Sunday worship, denial of Torah, worship of Ishtar(Easter), Christmas, Halloween and the propagation of "replacement theology" you make His teaching and sacrifice of non effect. The one you call Jesus is a Jew and taught Torah. I do not condemn you, I merely ask you to sincerely pray and seek revelation. Stop regrinding the old fodder of false "Christianity" and diligently ask for the Spiritual guidance that leads to truth. You are pushing the same old Catholic doctrines that caused bloodshed, pain and agony. I do not expect you to publish this, but I must speak out in the hope that I might be the one to reach that heart of yours that is thirsting after the God of Israel. You will find Him when you seek Him with all your heart. Baruch haShem Yahshuah!!

Subject: Israel Articles
Just a few lines to thank you for such clear and scriptural teaching regarding the 10 Lost Tribes of Israel. It's so refreshing to read something that is grounded in scripture and not politics or tradition. The Hebrew Roots Movement is growing by leaps and bounds due mainly to the dispensationalist teachings and those who don't understand who the
"Israel of God" really is. They always seem to leave out important passages in their teachings like Ephesians 2:11-19, Romans 11, Romans 9, and Revelation 7 among others, that show who the true Israel is. God bless you and your ministry.
