Biblical Numerology: NUMBER TWO – Part XVIII

 HOW MANY CLASSES OF ANIMALS ARE THERE? – Part IV

A dumb ass rebukes a covetous prophet. Many Christians, claiming to be “free in Christ” are actually imprisoned as slaves to self-indulgence, worldly ambition, and covetousness. Covetousness underlies almost all other sins of the flesh, strengthened by self-justification as enabled by the popular doctrinal distortions contained in the counterfeit gospel.

All who are co-laborers with God and joint-heirs with Christ (1 Cor. 3: 9; Rom. 8: 17) should patiently labor for their salvation while life and probation lingers.  God used Balaam’s ass on which he was riding on in his covetous mission, to warn the erstwhile prophet who “loved the wages of unrighteousness.” Balaam means “destroyer of the people.” See Numbers chapter 22; Deut. 23: 4; Joshua 13: 22; 2 Pet. 2: 13-22; Jude 11.

 First this: Pope Francis was recently quoted as saying that animals, particularly our beloved pets, have souls that go to heaven. Later they say that he was misquoted. See follow up story December 13, “Did Pope Francis really say all animals go to heaven?” by Brandon Ambrosino: www.vox.com). Rick Gladstone of the New York Times, December 14, (www.bostonglobe.com.) wrote (words in italics mine):

      “Pope Francis has given hope to gays, unmarried couples and advocates of the Big Bang theory. Now, he has endeared himself to dog lovers, animal-rights activists and vegans. . . . Charles Camosy, an author and professor of Christian ethics at Fordham University, said it was difficult to know precisely what Francis meant, since he spoke in ‘pastoral language that is not really meant to be dissected by academics.’ But asked if the remarks had caused a new debate on whether animals have souls, suffer andgo to heaven, Camosy said, ‘In a word: Absolutely.’  Read more
