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,...

Re: Breakthrough Movie

Okay. I did an internet search, and looked at the official trailer. Looks pretty dramatic.

Re: Breakthrough Movie

What is the title of the movie? Clicking on the words "Breakthrough Movie" does not get me anywhere.

Re: Conditional Immortality & Universalism

I think that "near-death experiences" are similar to dreams. Just as dreams can seem very realistic, so do NDEs.

Re: YouTube Videos Christology

Jesus' statement was His answer to the question the Jews asked Him: 57 So the Jews said to him, "You are not yet fifty years old, and have you seen Abraham?" 58 Jesus said to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I am." It seems to me that Jesus' response indicated that He existed p...

Re: YouTube Videos Christology

Most Unitarians would agree with the first paragraph but many would disagree that John 8:58 is meant to imply pre-existence.

Re: Conditional Immortality & Universalism

Hi Paidion, Jesus said that some hearing His words had (present indicative active) eternal life as was speaking. If those persons had eternal life prior to their death, and were then "dead as a doornail" for centuries, how could they have had eternal life? Do you see eternal life as only future or ...

Puzzling

**PUZZLING TRANSLATIONS** I am puzzled concerning the way in which translators render the Greek words “απειθεω” (apeitheō) and “απειθεια” (apeitheia). First let me assert that the Greek letter “α” (alpha) is a prefix meaning “not” or “without.” This meaning carries over into English where the first ...
