Re: Paul's great omission

The Begetting (or Generation) of the Son of God Before All Ages During my youth, I thought Jesus being the “only-begotten Son of God” referred to his having been begotten in the womb of Mary. But when I began reading second-century Christian writers in my early twenties, I realized that they taught...

Re: Paul's great omission

True. Paul did not teach that Jesus is God or part of a "Trinity". However, throughout the New Testament Jesus is identified as "The Son of God." In the beginning, God begat a Son—another Being like Himself. The son of a human being is human as is his father, and thus is a human being himself. Likew...

I wonder why women's periods are called menstrual periods rather that womenstrual periods.

Re: As A People The US has Gone Insane

Makes no sense at all. Neither does the assertion that the fetus is not a human being. For it is human, and it is a being. It follows that it is a human being. The abortionist might be convinced by that reasoning that it is a human being, but he would then affirm that it is not a "person" until it h...

Re: As A People The US has Gone Insane

"Murder" is the deliberate unnecessary killing of a human being. Abortionists argue that the fetus is not a human being.

Re: Did Jesus Command His Apostles to Kill?

Okay, I can see your point, Homer and Steve, if you consider these words as part of Jesus' parable.
I had taken it as Jesus' words to His disciples subsequent to the parable, concerning the attitude of certain people who would "not have this man (Jesus) to rule over us."

Did Jesus Command His Apostles to Kill?

According to Luke in his gospel, Jesus commanded the apostles to bring his enemies to Him and to slaughter them in front of Him! Here are the words of Jesus, according to Luke: "...But as for these enemies of mine, who did not want me to reign over them, bring them here and slaughter them before me....

Re: Our “spirits”?

I see nothing at all in 1 Cor 5:8 or Philippians 1 that addresses the matter.

Re: Our “spirits”?

John clearly taught that He would raise his disciples, not on the day of their death on the LAST DAY. Joh 6:39 And this is the will of him who sent me, that I should lose nothing of all that he has given me, but raise it up on the last day . Joh 6:40 For this is the will of my Father, that everyone ...

Re: Our “spirits”?

You wrote: Paul never mentioned grave or resurrection life but was clearly "torn" in his choice which certainly would not be the case if he were simply going to a grave. He could wait to be dead in the grave at anytime in his life and there would be no urgency in his decision, he would simply live o...
