Re: Newcomb's Paradox and Time

You still haven't explained why God would have intended to destroy that nation if He had known in advance that the nation would turn from its evil? God is simply communicating to his people the consequences of different choices because they do not share God's foreknowledge therefore they have free ...

Re: Newcomb's Paradox and Time

If at any time I declare concerning a nation or a kingdom, that I will pluck up and break down and destroy it, and if that nation, concerning which I have spoken, turns from its evil, I will relent of the disaster that I intended to do to it. (Jeremiah 18:7,8) Would God have intended to destroy tha...

Re: Newcomb's Paradox and Time

Thanks for posting. I thought this was very pertinent; I had never thought of foreknowledge and free will in this way: As Cargile puts it, "The player is free-he just cannot escape being 'seen' making his free choice." I think more pertinent might have been "foreseen" instead of "seen" although may...

Re: For Partial Preterists: Any OT Passages on the 2nd Coming?

For Partial Preterists -

Are there any passages in the Old Testament that refer to Christ's Second Coming? Or is that all fulfilled in Jesus?





They believe in a literal second coming.

Re: The Basis of Our Eternal Destiny

Or is Hell God's temporary blessing to train people to depart from wrongdoing and then to live righteously? This seems to be a huge contradiction. We are supposed to believe persons in hell then repent and are on a sort of probation, living righteously for some unknown period until they earn there ...

Re: New Heavens and New Earth

A couple of light questions. (1) if Jesus came as the Second Adam to restore what was lost at the Fall and we will get a New Creation to restore Eden to its original state, why will we not be married or given in marriage? Adam and Eve were. Why no procreation? (2) why will there be a New Heavens? T...

Re: The Basis of Our Eternal Destiny

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. It sounds like instead of being saved by faith in Christ that instead the death of Christ has cancelled out the "through one man's death sin came into the world and death c...

Re: Was the first pope married?

So why do Roman Catholic authorities forbid marriage for priests, bishops, popes, etc.? Do they consider such officials holier, if they refrain from sexual activity? Yet, there is evidence that a large number of popes in history not only had sex, but generated a significant number of offspring. Ref...

Re: Revelation Fixation

So someone whose name is "John" had a vision. He wrote down what he saw in his vision. Does it make sense to interpret that vision as descriptive of future events? Paidion Why not? There are plenty of prophecies in the bible. On the other hand since we have an Olivet Discourse clearly describing th...
