Re: Did Paul Disagree With Jesus About Anger?

I once heard Bruxy Cavey address this by first quoting the full passage: “Be angry, and do not sin”: do not let the sun go down on your wrath, nor give place to the devil. He then said that the way to be angry and not sin is prescribed here as not letting the sun go down on your wrath. In other word...

Re: THE 16 COMMANDMENTS

Thank you, Jason. How do you think that principle would be applied if someone is about to harm you or your family? Steve once said that you are to love your enemy, but not at the expense of the innocent party. My thinking would be similar, so I would defend my family from harm if there was no other...

Re: THE 16 COMMANDMENTS

Paidion, I think Jesus said there was only one command which summarized all the law and the prophets. So I'd say your list contains examples of that one command, but is not exhaustive when it comes to its application. I remember a sermon by Greg Boyd where he talked about principles versus rules. On...

Who will judge the world?

There are many passages in scripture about God's judgement of the world on the last day, so what do we make of 1 Corinthians 6:2? Or do you not know that the saints will judge the world? If the world is judged by you, are you not competent to constitute the smallest law courts? Will God judge the wo...

Re: Literally 6 Days

I'm visualizing a whirlwind of creation punctuated by resting/ceasing on the seventh "day." The universe and the earth would look ancient, for good reason, but actually be a week old. Again, I have no idea if God hyper-lapsed the universe into existence, but I wouldn't think it odd. He's done strang...

Re: Literally 6 Days

TK, you asked a valid question about why God would allow for the appearance of stellar evolution and Singalphile mentioned that perhaps there might be usefulness in having done so. I think a real possibility is that God laid out the universe in such a way as to make us marvel at it. If that was His ...

Re: Do you agree with the Ark Encounter?

Evolution is supported by an overwhelming abundance of evidence. I know I'm not going to convince you of that, but really that was beside my point. Luther believed in a literal Genesis just like he believed in a literal firmament that held celestial bodies that rotated around a still earth. The rej...

Re: Do you agree with the Ark Encounter?

It is my understanding that the early church and the church down through the ages has always accepted Genesis 1-3 as being literal. It has only been in the last 200 years with Darwinian evolution and so-called modern science (that also gives us the global warming hoax) coming on the scene that peop...

Re: Do you agree with the Ark Encounter?

Dwight: Not always. In fact, Paul (and the writer of Hebrews, if not Paul) clearly tells us those things you mentioned were meant to correspond to heavenly things. So if Genesis was not to be taken literally, Paul certainly forgot to tell us that. He certainly had every opportunity to tell us that,...

Re: Do you agree with the Ark Encounter?

I find it a matter of interest that Moses, whose work we're discussing, was told by God to write down the dimensions of the tabernacle and set up an entire system of worship that represented "heavenly" things. The God of the bible seems very interested in having people write down things which repres...
