So, are you suggesting that Jesus' death absolves his followers from all sin - forever? 

yep

This brings us back to being able to live a life of sin until, in the end, you suddenly give yourself up to Jesus and all your sin will be forgiven. 

I think that is an unrealistic scenario:  If you adopt that strategy for your life then your deathbed conversion is hardly likely to be sincere is it?

But in the case of a sincere deathbed conversion then it would work as well as any other.

Indeed, much of the discussion recently has been that we don't need to be good moral people, we just, at some point, need to have faith in God.  I guess morality is for Jews, Muslims and atheists then.   Don't know

We've been reading how Jesus has been condemning the religious elites for their immorality so I think its obvious that Jesus expects his followers to be 'moral'.  In case you don't think its obvious I will assure you that he does.

I found the prophets in the OT tended to blame every single incident that occurred to the Israelites on their not adhering to the law.  They even made more than a few juicy incidents up Yeah, RIGHT..  However I'm not convinced this affected their religion once it had gained form, nor was their lack of adherence to the religious law the cause of any trouble.  It just seems a little unbelievable.  I probably made my position on that clear as we went though the OT.  So, from a more historic, rather than hysteric position, once Solomon built the temple in Jerusalem, and the religion of the Jews found form, it went on building on that form for about 700 years until the Greeks came in and started the Hellenization of the area.  That is when the divisions (Sadducee, Pharisee, Essene, etc...) began to occur, and the people were tempted or forced away from their core religion both to the new Gentile religions and to variants of Judaism.  Sure there were wars and strife along the way, but these did not have the same effect on Judaism that the Greek and Roman occupations had.

Ah, that's what you mean.  I think that even after Solomon the record of the prophets is that Israel and then Judah kept the religion poorly.  Which led to the exile in Babylon.

Just get the paddles split on your current King. Much cheaper.
I agree with BurgerBob!

Jesus said that he didn't come to abolish the law but to fulfill it.  How do you think that Jesus fulfilled the law?

I reckon that he did it by paying the penalty for sin that it required.  and once that was done it didn't need to be paid any more.
In reading Matthew, I think he did by teaching people how to properly obey the law.

So, I've been following a Benge 290 on Brass Ark's site, and I'd like to know whether it's a suitable Jazz/commercial horn.  I still play my Duo Gravis but the valves are becoming increasingly difficult for my smallish and aging hand.  Any advice?  I've considered mods for my DG, but would just picking up the Benge do the trick?

I suspect it's only in the last 40 years that there have been enough examples of good concert halls (plus the easy international mobility to study them) for people to discern the common elements that make them good.

C'mon Rob - you need to get out of Dallas more.  The 3 best concert halls in the world were built in 1870, 1900 (Boston Symphony Hall - designed by a Harvard acoustician!), and 1888.  Their architects knew what they were doing.

How does it play? What situations did you use it in?

Devil's advocate here;

Personally, the Benge 165 is a pretty sub-standard instrument compared to any of the horns available now, like cheap Bach 42s and Conn 88Hs. I haven't played one that really resonated.

Is this a name brand American made or Yamaha valve trombone, or something else?

If it has that much of a problem I would bet it's "something else."

There's a lot of junk out there.  You might need to bite the bullet and buy a real instrument.
