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

Christ not only demands that we give freely to all who ask from us (Matt. 5:42), with such prodigality that one hand is ignorant of the other’s largesse (Matt. 6:3); he explicitly forbids storing up earthly wealth – not merely storing it up too obsessively Is giving feely to all who ask the loving ...

I was assigned an aisle seat, a nicely dressed gentleman was in the window seat, with an empty seat between us. I was reading a Christian book of some sort ...

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 i...

Re: Presto Chango!

Thanks Steve and good observation on your part also. I hadn't caught the missing "blood" idea about Paul's statement. Paul made considerable use of body (soma) in reference to the church, particularly in 1 Cor. 12.
