Re: The Honest Atheist?

It seems to me that if there is enough natural evidence to point to God, and that man can be condemned based on this amount of evidence, then the natural thought process of the mind is incapable of coming to a complete certainty there is not God. Complete certainty must come from a progressive cont...

Re: Why Is The Law Bondage?

One of the reasons that the Law creates bondage and doom is that in Deuteronomy 32 God has declared doom to those under that covenant. He promises to rescue his faithful followers out of that covenant before the destruction (explained in some detail in the first part of Romans 7) of that covenant n...

Re: Why Is The Law Bondage?

I believe that when Paul says, "those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God," he is not talking about true disciples that have eternal life and will still undergo some judgment. I would go ahead and categorize those living like that as still being under bondage to their sin. I do n...

Re: Why Is The Law Bondage?

Why does the law lead to bondage? Any thoughts? Everyone would be a transgressor in one way or another if we were judged by or held under the holy Law alone. I can't think of better imagery than bondage for being held in these transgressions (sin) and their penalty. Conversely, the new covenant, es...

Why Is The Law Bondage?

Gal 4: Hagar and Sarah 22 For it is written that Abraham had two sons: the one by a bondwoman, the other by a freewoman. 23 But he who was of the bondwoman was born according to the flesh, and he of the freewoman through promise, 24 which things are symbolic. For these are the[d] two covenants: the ...

Re: How Does YEC Explain The Fossil Record?

According to the article in the link below, "Some of today's species look a lot like their Mesozoic counterparts." If the Mesozoic mammals look so much like today's species, how can we be so sure they weren't today's species? Or is it mere presumption that they COULDN'T have been the same mammal ty...

Re: How Does YEC Explain The Fossil Record?

See, if the above was true then that would go a long way to support a global flood and it would go a long way to undermine the theory of evolution as we know it. But how do we verify these claims? You might find that journal -- here's a possibly more authoritative or scholarly reference to it... Th...

Re: How Does YEC Explain The Fossil Record?

It's not really a subject on my mind right now.... but a quick search did turn up this quote from a message board (obviously not a great source since people like me post on message boards!). In any case, he/she seems to provide a 'source' for their information. There have been numerous caches of "m...

Re: How Does YEC Explain The Fossil Record?

This is just a theory below (and I'm not even that well informed, but applying logic...), I think what he's saying (and what I've read) is that it's a statistics issue -- we barely even find fossils compared to the number of beings living in a given time -- to my mind, it's quite a remarkable set o...

Re: How Does YEC Explain The Fossil Record?

The latest response from my friend... Matt, Fossils of mammals are extremely rare, so to find them buried together with dinosaur fossils would be a chance happening. Nevertheless, a few mammal fossils have been found in the vicinity of dinosaur fossils. At the American Museum of Natural History in ...
