Re: John 8:58

I think I answered that in the final three sentences of my post: One who was called "Yahweh" was in heaven. The other was the One on earth who had been talking with Abraham. Through the power of the One in heaven, the One on earth was able to rain sulfur and fire on Sodom and Gomorrah . The One was ...

Re: John 8:58

Thanks Paidion, so you don't think that verse 56 plays into the interpretation of 58? I do indeed believe it to be related. For years I have affirmed that Jesus is the divine Son of God whom the Father begat before all ages as the first of His acts. So Abraham did indeed see Him in his day. Accordi...

Re: John 8:58

As I understand verse 58, Jesus was simply saying that He existed before Abraham. I think it is mere assumption that He was trying to say that He was the "the Great I AM." I don't think the verse implies either Trinitarianism or Modalism.

Re: The Bible, the word of God

I know this post is almost 2 years old, but I ran across it today, and decided to express my thoughts on the subject "The Word of God": THE WORD OF GOD The expression, “The word of God” is never used in the Bible as a reference to the Bible. How could it? For when the writers used the expression, th...

Re: Paul's genuine apostleship

I am puzzled that any genuine Christian would question the authenticity of Paul's apostleship—especially when one considers that 13 or possibly 14 of the 27 New Testament writings were written by Paul.

Re: Are You a Unitrinian?

Through Mrs. King's influence Carman became an advocate of 'unitrinianism,' a philosophy which "drew on the theories of François-Alexandre-Nicolas-Chéri Delsarte to develop a strategy of mind-body-spirit harmonization aimed at undoing the physical, psychological, and spiritual damage caused by urba...

Are You a Unitrinian?

This post has arisen out of a dream I had last night. In my dream, I noticed that someone had written "Unutrinian" While yet dreaming, I said to myself, "That should be spelled "Unitrinian." Then I awoke, and thought, "Just what is a Unitrinian, anyway?" I've never heard of it. I speculated that it ...

Re: Are we called to sell our possessions and give to the poor?

And thank you, Steve! However, I would like to point out that my assertion that the English word "moron" was derived from the Greek "μωρος" (morōs), was mere supposition on my part. A few minutes ago, I looked it up and discovered that my supposition happens to be correct. From Wikipedia: "Moron" wa...

Re: Are we called to sell our possessions and give to the poor?

Hi Steve, I thought I would check out just one of your statements that seem to be intended to show that Jesus used hyperbole: Jesus says that one who calls another a "fool" faces the fire of Gehenna (Matt.5:22), but Jesus and Paul both call people by this term (Luke 24:25; Gal.3:1); In Matthew 5:22,...
