2. "a multitude of individuals of the same nature or genus (τό ἔθνος τό θῆλυ ἤ ἀρρεν, Xenophon, oec. 7, 26): πᾶν ἔθνος ἀνθρώπων, the human race, Acts 17:26 (but this seems to belong under the next entry).
3. race, nation: Matthew 21:43; Acts 10:35, etc.; ἔθνος ἐπί ἔθνος, Matthew 24:7; Mark 13:8: οἱ ἄρχοντες, οἱ βασιλεῖς τῶν ἐθνῶν, Matthew 20:25; Luke 22:25; used (in the singular) of the Jewish people, Luke 7:5; Luke 23:2; John 11:48, 50-53; John 18:35; Acts 10:22; Acts 24:2 (), ; .
4. (τά ἔθνη, like הַגויִם in the O. T., foreign nations not worshipping the true God, pagans, Gentiles, (cf. Trench, § xcviii.): Matthew 4:15 (Γαλιλαία τῶν ἐθνῶν), ; (3 John 1:7 R G; cf. Revelation 15:3 G L T Tr WH marginal reading after John 10:7), and very often; in plain contradistinction to the Jews: Romans 3:29; Romans 9:24; (1 Corinthians 1:23 G L T Tr WH): Galatians 2:8, etc.; ὁ λαός (τοῦ Θεοῦ, Jews) καί τά ἔθνη, Luke 2:32; Acts 26:17, 23; Romans 15:10.

What do you think of this website? https://www.isiphambano.com/
Looks like they are influenced by cultural marxism
listened to one of the lectures, so far can agree with you... Will listen to some more though
Wish people will come to understand that evil comes from good intentions eminating from the heart. The road to hell is paved with good intentions, and the abundance of the heart brings forth evil things. Listening to this, all i hear is they know what's best for us, hardly an attempt to reason about it when they are that woke right.
So ignorance is bliss after all.
WTF?!?!? Yes great idea... if the world confuses you, stop thinking?!?! Waaahahahahaha
Joyce Meyer is a total fraud
@TruthCanary just another fake out for herself duping all those poor gullible fools. She has no idea what true religion is
The amount of heresy and false teaching coming from her over the years is astonishing. Lots of New Age ideas amongst others.
And then she says things like "get tattoos, drink whatever you want, do whatever you want because it's just legalism not to"
Great testimony from an ex New Ager
@TruthCanary thanks will have a look. Do you have Netflix? Are you aware of the Wild Wild Country documentary on the rajneeshees
@TruthCanary but people are already worshipping the new age messiah
@Daniel van Straaten She's excellent. Have you read her Secret Thoughts?
What are you a fan of?
How do you define libertarian?
