Belly of the Beast Documentary

Has anyone seen this documentary, discussing the pagan influences in our country's founding and the layout and symbolism of Washington DC and rituals associated with our Presidents, etc.? It's a purchase on Vimeo and I think other places. I'm curious what folks think. It's a very well done film. I d...

Re: Newcomb's Paradox and Time

Maybe more to the point is William Lane Craig's discussion -- I haven't read it yet. His stuff takes more time and energy than I have right now.... http://www.leaderu.com/offices/billcraig/docs/newcomb.html Divine Foreknowledge and Newcomb's Paradox Dr. William Lane Craig William Lane Craig is Resea...

Re: Newcomb's Paradox and Time

Probably not relevant to the question and a distraction, but I don't like the way it's premised. It is not possible for the white box to have "either" all or nothing. It has one or the other as an absolute truth. We may not know the truth, but that truth is real. And if it has $1mm and it is known t...

Re: The Basis of Our Eternal Destiny

Paul seemed to think there was some bit of what you "do" that bears on your eternal fate... Maybe just to prevent hardening of the heart that can lead to rejection of Christ, but it's not entirely clear what he meant. 1 Corinthians 9:24-27 24 Do you not know that all the runners in a stadium compete...

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?

John 3:16

This passage came up (as it often does) in a bible study I'm in, and I never noticed something about it. In the NET translation I often use, it starts not with "So God so loved the world..." but instead "For this is the way God loved the world...." I always took this in the sense of "how much" God l...

Re: John 3:13

I found this reference in THE TEXT OF JOHN 3:13 by DAVID ALAN BLACK from the Grace Theological Journal 6.1 (1985) 49-66 to commentary by C.J. Wright, Jesus. The Revelation oj God (Londo~: Hodder and Stoughton. 1950) 73. ...beginquote... One could also point in this connection to 1:51, where the expr...

Re: John 3:13

I found this in NET full translation notes. Looks like some folks think all of 13ff are the author's thoughts and not Jesus' words. I think their failure to mention the figurative (and not just mythical) aspect of, for example, Moses ascending and descending re: Torah is instructive. I've seen enoug...

Re: John 3:13

I believe it is the concluding phrase not present in all translations and manuscripts: "which is in heaven."

Bruce Metzger has suggested that phrase was likely an interpretive embellishment representing later Christological developments in some of the manuscripts.
