Re: Soteriology

I believe Jesus' death and resurrection had far greater effect, namely He suffered and died for the sins of all who ever lived. If so, how does that benefit the more than 90% of all people who are not Christians? But it is easy to see how one might take on the penalty (think debt) of another. Hmmm....

Re: Sacrificial System (and Atonement)

I ran across this quote from NT Wright the other day - thought it would provoke some good discussion: The more I’ve puzzled away about the meaning of sacrifice in the first century and so forth, and the more I’ve read from both Christian and Jewish writers on this subject, the more it really does s...

Re: What happens when you commit suicide

As a universal reconciliationist I believe the Lord gets what he wants eventually, which is to have you in His loving arms. If you aren’t saved you will go to hell, and it becomes a matter of how long. I wouldn’t want to find out though. Since God himself could take you at any time, and he has not d...

Re: Trinities podcast

Dr Tuggy did very well vs Dr Michael Brown. Out the gate, I think Tuggy gave deference to the older man, at first Tuggy let Brown go on rabbit trails. By the middle, both men were tracking and in form. And I though by the end Tuggy was in his element, making clear his points for which I thought Brow...

Re: Trinities podcast

Listened to "The Apostle Paul a Unitarian." Imo, a very sober and clarifying talk. I'd already been leaning increasingly, the more I notice the distinctions made between God and Jesus in the Bible, to the view that only the father is God. Plan to one day to reveal my own leanings in person to a Chri...

Re: Church or Club

Great read Paidon. Puts it rather starkly. Entity X is the most reflective of modern gatherings I believe. I've been going to "church" of some form for 11 years. From 2013 - 2016 I was a part of a home church that was similar to what is described of the Early Church. I speak for myself in the follow...

Re: (Seemingly) strange applications of OT prophecy in the N

This is the one that I found most peculiar: An angel told Joseph to take Jesus as a baby to Egypt to hide him from Herod. Matthew wrote that when Jesus was brought back from Egypt this fulfilled Hosea's prophecy "Out of Egypt have I called my son." So he got up, took the child and his mother during...

Re: (Seemingly) strange applications of OT prophecy in the N

Thank you very much for the resource, Carmine. Having read just a few pages so far, I can see that they (the authors of the article) are, or have been, "on my wavelength" on this, and am looking forward to reading how they come to terms with this problem, as time permits. I do have a working knowled...

(Seemingly) strange applications of OT prophecy in the NT

I've been turning this over in my mind for a while, ever since my wife and I had a discussion in which she was quite taken aback by remarks I made while we were discussing a particular New Testament passage. We were discussing the birth of Jesus, and she said that it was predicted by Isaiah. I said ...

Re: hell question

Write out Revelation 14:11 on a piece of paper. Next to it, write out Isaiah 34:10. Read all of Isaiah 34. I don’t think you can do that and sincerely still think Revelation 14:11 supports eternal torment, though when I was younger that’s the verse I heard quoted most often to support the view. Havi...
