John 1:12-13  But as many as received him, he gave them power to be made the sons of God, to them that believe in his name.  Who are born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
In case any BODers want to falsely argue that the sense of the words "not of blood" is that of "not of a bloodline" or some other falsity, there is proof positive that when the Latin word in John 1:13 "sanguinibus" is used in Scripture, the sense is always that of BLOOD BEING SHED or BLOOD SHED. So an accurate understanding of John 1:13 is...
Who, not of blood (being shed), not of the will of flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God are born. (Jo 1:13)
Note the examples of Scripture below. In each case of the word "sanguinibus" there is a reference to blood shed
Multiplicatae sunt infirmitates eorum, postea acceleraverunt. Non congregabo conventicula eorum de sanguinibus; nec memor ero nominum eorum per labia mea. (Ps 15:4)
Their infirmities were multiplied: afterward they made hast. I will not assemble their conventicles of blood: neither will I be mindful of their names by my lips. (Ps 15:4)
Libera me de sanguinibus, Deus, Deus salutis meae, et exsultabit lingua mea justitiam tuam. (Ps. 50:16)
Deliver me from bloods o God, the God of my salvation: and my tongue shall exult thy justice. (Ps. 50:16)
Et effuderunt sanguinem innocentem, sanguinem filiorum suorum et filiarum suarum, quas sacrificaverunt sculptilibus Chanaan. Et infecta est terra in sanguinibus, (Ps 105:38 )
And they shed innocent blood: the blood of their sons and of their daughters, which they sacrificed to the sculptures of Chanaan. And the land was infected with blood, (Ps 105:38 )
Et dixit ad me: Iniquitas domus Israel et Juda magna est nimis valde, et repleta est terra sanguinibus, et civitas repleta est aversione: dixerunt enim: Dereliquit Dominus terram, et Dominus non videt. (Ez 9:9)
And he said to me: The iniquity of the house of Israel, and Juda is exceeding great, and the land is replenished with blood, and the city is replenished with aversion: for they have said: Our Lord hath forsaken the earth, and our Lord seeth not. (Ez 9:9)
Audite hoc, principes domus Jacob, et judices domus Israel, qui abominamini judicium, et omnia recta pervertitis : qui aedificatis Sion in sanguinibus, et Jerusalem in iniquitate. (Mic 3:9-10)
Hear this ye Princes of the house of Jacob, and ye judges of the house of Israel: which abhor judgment, and pervert all right things. Which build Sion in blood, and Jerusalem in iniquity. (Mic 3:9-10)
Vae qui aedificat civitatem in sanguinibus, et praeparat urbem in iniquitate. (Hab 2:12)
Woe to him that buildeth a city in bloods, and prepareth a city in iniquity. (Hab 2:12)
Quia iniquitas Libani operiet te, et vastitas animalium deterrebit eos de sanguinibus hominum, et iniquitate terrae, et civitatis, et omnium habitantium in ea. (Hab:2:17)
Because the iniquity of Libanus shall cover thee, and the wasting of the beasts shall terrify them for the bloods of men, and the iniquity of the land, and of the city, and of all that dwell therein. (Hab:2:17)
Qui non ex sanguinibus, neque ex voluntate carnis, neque ex voluntate viri, sed ex Deo nati sunt. (Jo 1:13)
Who, not of blood, not of the will of flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God are born. (Jo 1:13)
This completely refutes BOB. BOD is refuted where it says "nor of the will of man".
Good post Freedom. Unfortunately, I don't think they will get it, however.
