Re: Paul's genuine apostleship

They also reject Acts, for the most part—because it is so pro-Paul. But if Luke can't be trusted to write objective history, we'd better eliminate his Gospel also. Hebrews also is too Pauline to be trusted, because it speaks of the new covenant ending the relevance of the old one. I assume they woul...

Paul's genuine apostleship

Was Paul a False Apostle who Corrupted Christianity? Steve Gregg For some reason, there are a number of Christians who (as was the case in the first century church) feel compelled to question Paul’s apostleship. This they do, I assume, because they either misunderstand his words, or else understand...

Why would one not choose to be a Christian?

Here is another correspondence from just today: Dear Steve, I've been listening to your show for a few months now. A few weeks ago you invited non christians to call up and explain why they did not want to become christians, because you could not think of any reason why someone would not want to be...

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

Hi jwalsh, My views are very much like Homer's, though I was once much closer to the Bruderhof in my thinking on this subject. In studying and meditating of the teachings of Christ, through the years, it became plain the degree to which Jesus used hyperbole in his teaching. It seems dangerous to ass...

Should I stay in my church?

Whenever I write long responses to people asking my counsel concerning a very common problem, I figure that posting it here might benefit a larger number of people than just the one to whom it was originally addressed. The following is my recent response to a sister who has had trouble finding a goo...

Re: Conditional Immortality & Universalism

Hi Homer, Yes, if the sinner is immediately consumed when cast into the lake of fire, there would be no opportunity for him to later repent. However, to say that human immortality is conditional (as I believe the Bible teaches) does not mean that a mortal being cannot be sustained for a period of ti...

Re: Digital Ministries link does not appear to be valid

Jacob, Thank you so much for pointing these out! I do not keep track of the contents of any of the websites, as you probably know, because they are the creations of other people who also manage them. I would love to have those lectures on our website. If you would contact Tim Pearson about this (at ...

Re: Presto Chango!

Good observations, Homer. I don't think that the reference to not discerning "the body" (1 Corinthians 11:29) has anything to do with transubstantiation, that is, with acknowledging the change of bakery goods into a human body (why would Paul, then, not follow up with the complementary phrase, "and ...
