Another 'coincidence'?

According to news, Racka is the place where ISIS seats; it is also the ugly, despective and insulting word Jesus said we would not be pardoned, if we were to use to insult our brother.

    Yes. Just because two words have a similar pronunciation doesn't mean that any real connection exists between them. Don't confuse mere correlation with causation.

    The Arabic name of the city is الرقة‎ (ar-Raqqah). According to Matthew 5:22, Jesus uses the Aramaic word "raca" (ρακα in Greek transliteration). I doubt the words would have exactly the same spelling in either Arabic or Aramaic.

    Besides, the name "Raca" refers to a lot of other places too.

    * Raca, a Biblical term of Aramaic origin used in Matthew 5:22

    * Rača, a town and municipality in Serbia

    * Rača (river), a river in Slovenia

    * Rača, Bratislava, borough of Bratislava, Slovakia

    * Raça, a village and suco in East Timor in Lospalos district

    * Royal Academy of Culinary Arts, college in Jordan

    * Royal Automobile Club of Australia, Australian organisation

    More coincidences? Methinks so.

      For Him, it wasn't a coincidence the Temple fell to Babylonians on 537 BC, and ITS DISTANCE to Jerusalem is the same number, in nautical miles. NASA allowed us to measure the exact distance. Yahweh wanted it so, when He said: "Son of Man, draw a chord over Jerusalem..."

    ISIS = Israeli Secret Intelligence Service = daughter of Mossad. Al Qaeda = daughter of CIA. First Mossad does the Statue of Liberty, then some "old" bridge, then explosion in the sea floods New Sodom (New York), later New Gomorah (Los Angeles) is flooded. God punishes when murder (abortion), witchcraft, and sodomy are legalized. America has to go. Good-bye, America, you filled the earth with your poison (pornography, abortions, sodomy, murdering civilians worldwide, etc.) and now you pay for the blood of innocent. youtube.com/watch?v=94rcOVJBMYQ

      Park - you visit too much Youtube. "No one knows the date; not the Son, neither the angels..." It seems you received some undisclosed e-mail from up there.

    It's actually "Raca."

    "You have heard that the ancients were told, 'YOU SHALL NOT COMMIT MURDER ' and 'Whoever commits murder shall be liable to the court.' 22"But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother shall be guilty before the court; and whoever says to his brother, 'You good-for-nothing,' shall be guilty before the supreme court; and whoever says, 'You fool,' shall be guilty enough to go into the fiery hell.-Matthew 5:22

      In Hebrew, Yeshua's language, there is no "pronounciation". ISIS kills their own 'brothers', they 'despice' the West too. Even from the mouth of an atheist, His Word becomes Truth.

      The spirit behind "fool" is disdain, pride in himself and despise for others, which I believe this word partakes. I - personally - do not think is a coincidence. For Him, there are no "coincidences"; all has its place and time, even this stupid little thing.
