Re: Why did Jesus stop reading?

Hi Paidion, Thanks for your answer. I remain unconvinced. Maybe you could answer a few more questions. You asked me, “Do you think that Jesus was saying that the Pharisees were failing to keep the commandment to kill the son who curses his parents?” This question seems like a smokescreen that avoids...

Re: Why did Jesus stop reading?

Thanks Paidion. I see what you are trying to show. However, I think that your answer ignores the fact that Jesus attributes both statements to Moses and sandwiches that affirmation between two separate statements that each suggest that those words of Moses were actually commandments from God. In oth...

Re: Why did Jesus stop reading?

I know I said I was done, but your post has inspired a question, Paidion. Then I discovered that Mark quoted these words of Jesus significantly differently. "For Moses said, ‘Honor your father and your mother’; and, ‘He who curses father or mother, let him be put to death.’" (Mark 7:10) So we cannot...

Re: Why did Jesus stop reading?

Thanks Matt. Can't say I agree with you. Not on the basis of being shocked by your suggestion though. It just doesn't read that way to me. If the activity was demonic, it was allowed by God since He warns Noah, ahead of time, to build an ark. And He obviously had the power to prevent it because He s...

Re: Why did Jesus stop reading?

If this is true the Christian religion is built upon sand I tend to agree with you, Homer. It seems to me that inspiration is less involved in the selection of writings than it is in the writings themselves. Matt, I am curious. How would you explain the flood in light of your understanding of progr...

Re: Why did Jesus stop reading?

If this is Paidon's argument, then the criteria should be much more stringent than theological cherry picking. I'll let Paidion speak for himself. My position is that the Bible progressively reveals that 'wrath' and 'vengeance' are more about the natural consequences of our rebellion than they are ...

Why did Jesus stop reading?

Morbo, I don't think that Dizerner is critiquing your statements. As I'm sure you are aware, Paidion has often stated his opinion about the inspiration of any scripture that suggests God might be the author of acts of judgement. My understanding is that Paidion believes that the passages that descri...

Re: Why did Jesus stop reading?

In verse 21 Jesus says, "Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing." The promise of the Lord's vengeance was not to be fulfilled on "that" day. The promise of the scripture regarding His message of "good news" was indeed being fulfilled that day. That message needed to be rejected before He ...

Re: Understanding Lordship Salvation

[/quote] I always thought it would be easier as a married person, by the way.[/quote] 1 Corinthians 7:33-34 tells us that we will be more concerned with the things of the world if we are married and less able to care about the things of The Lord.
