Re: Love and the Trinity

The social trinity and a proof based on love seems really desperate to me. But, it begs two questions. First, if God can’t be complete without expressing His love in eternity, then what do you do when considering that the greatest expression of love is to lay down your life for another — that didn’...

No longer receiving email notifications

The forum has stopped sending me email notifications of replies, etc. I'm not sure exactly when it started, but it's been some time, probably at least 6 months ago. It still has my correct email address. Is anyone else having this problem?

Re: Mark of the Beast

Focusedman, this looks to me like more or less standard Seventh Day Adventist beliefs. If you were interested in discussing those points in light of the Bible, I'm sure you'd find some good discussion here. But looking over your past posts, it's pretty clear you're just here to preach your views, an...

Re: Esoteric study

For Jesus said “Rather, the kingdom is inside of you, and it is outside of you”. That's from the Gospel of Thomas. Nothing like it is ever stated in the Bible, and it seems much closer to gnosticism than to anything the Bible says Jesus said. So it's not reasonable to believe Jesus ever said it. Th...

Re: Born Again or Begotten Again?

"Adoption as sons" is a poor translation of "υιοθεσια" (huiothesia). The word ought to be translated as the "placing as sons." Could you please provide your source for this? I checked several Greek references (Robertson, Nicoll, Alford, and Zodhiates), and none support it; all say 'adoption' is cor...

Re: John 8:58

Also, doesn't verse 54 directly equate, from the mouth of Jesus, the Father and God? And so the popular Trinitarian interpretation of 58 would be that Jesus is saying that he is the Father? Lends more to Modelism it seems. In v54 He says the Father is God. In v58, according to Robertson, Vincent, a...

Hey, does anyone know if Steve’s two-hour segment on secular radio yesterday is or will be posted somewhere?

I do not know where everyone is, but I suspect the 'Active Topics' option on the board index has left to try and find them.
Hope it returns very soon.
It must be paying attention, because it's already returned to the 'Quick links' menu at the top left. :)

Re: Is Damascus Syria? Isa 17:1

I've been hearing for many years that the Isaiah 17 prophecy of the destruction of Damascus has never been fulfilled, so must still come. This is untrue; it was destroyed by the Assyrians under Tiglath-Pileser in 732 BC, fulfilling this prophecy, and has been destroyed several times since then. Who ...

Re: Steve Gregg Responds to Jack Hibbs

Shame. Video is no longer available (at least through the link). "Copyright claim by Real Life with Jack Hibbs" would have enjoyed seeing it. Wow -- that's, at best, very disappointing. Why engage on issues, or pay any attention when someone points out you don't know as much about the idea you're t...
