Re: 666 YEARS dates Revelation's composition

I'm not so well-versed about Revelation, so I can't add much. That's interesting, though. I'll keep it in mind. I have often wondered just how long it would have taken the Revelation to be disseminated to the seven churches and the wider Church. Seems like it must have been a few months at least. Pe...

Re: the trinity would be revealed in a Jewish way of thinkin

The OT mentions the Spirit of God (or the Lord). What did the Israelites think about that? Were they binitarians (God in two persons)? Perhaps Justin Martyr should have mentioned that to Trypho ... unless they didn't understand the Spirit like that. Since they understood God to be Spirit, I don’t t...

Re: the trinity would be revealed in a Jewish way of thinkin

What is the "Jewish way" by which Jesus' divinity (leave aside trinitarianism) was taught? The OT mentions the Spirit of God (or the Lord). What did the Israelites think about that? Were they binitarians (God in two persons)? Perhaps Justin Martyr should have mentioned that to Trypho ... unless they...

Re: 2020 NASB update will be gender inclusive

I'm all for increasing clarity, but I do find word-for-word translation to be more linguistically interesting. As for which method is more accurate, that's hard to say. In 1 Cor 9:5 "sister woman" is translated as "believing wife" or "Christian wife" by most translations (including the NASB), which ...

Re: Could Luke 20:38 support Universalism?

There is always more to learn and discussions in places like FB just don’t flow as well or go so deep: at least in my opinion. I tried to follow the Narrow Path FB group for a while, but I agree that it's not as conducive to fruitful Christian fellowship and idea sharing (at least imo, for me). But...

Re: Could Luke 20:38 support Universalism?

A little off topic here, This forum seems like it got a lot more interaction about five (5) years ago. What happened? Some possible factors: 1. The regulars have grown older and thus have less time for online discussion. 2. The regulars have grown wiser and thus spend less time in online discussion...

Re: Is Jesus the Everlasting Father?

I don't see a word that corresponds to "Father" in there either, but all of the well-known English translations have it, so I guess it's in there, beyond my understanding. Hebrew sure is strange (to me). I do think Isaiah 9:6 seems to violate the gist of binitarianism and trinitarianism, to call the...

Re: Trusting Genesis and the Christian Faith

That's a good response, Steve. There are a few things that I don't like to see (from other people in general): 1. The equating of the word "literal" with the word "true". 2. A person departing from God because he or she doesn't think, for example, that the universe is a few thousand years old. (Whet...
