Re: Revelation 20:5 Confusion

Hi Doug, I've actually just finished reading your book "Making Sense of the Millennium". I recently purchased it from Amazon. I appreciate the research and work you invested in writing it. In this book, you make some excellent points with respect to the topic of this thread. I found your discussion ...

Re: Revelation 20:5 Confusion

Hi PWS, I've wrestled with the passage quite a bit myself. Here are some observations in response to your questions. Can I assume that "the rest of the dead" are in contrast to those mentioned in verse 4? That is, unbelievers? That would be my conclusion as well. If so, then since they did not come ...

Re: Hank Hanegraaff converts to Orthodoxy

Hi TK, Comparison between Orthodoxy, Protestantism & Roman Catholicism is a good, concise summary of the Orthodox distinctives from Roman Catholicism and Protestantism. Regarding the authority of the Pope, this page states that the Orthodox church believes that: As the Bishop of Rome, he has a prima...

Re: Hank Hanegraaff converts to Orthodoxy

Thanks for sharing these sources Si and TK. In many ways, I was surprised by this turn of events but in other ways, I wasn't. Hank has been referencing the importance of partaking of the uncreated energy of the Eucharist and the other means of grace during the broadcast much more in recent years. I'...

Re: Who Came from the Graves?

This passage has always been a stumbling block for me. The idea that it was a mass resuscitation has its merits but that explanation has never quite settled the uneasiness I felt when reading this passage. The whole account has always felt somewhat gratuitous, arbitrary and contrived to me. Especial...

Re: Introverts & Fellowship

A solution would be to feel comfortable meeting and having fellowship with new folks. Have you arrived at that place of comfort yet? I think that I have in most situations. I can understand how you feel about the superficiality of social gatherings. I agree that the way most people handle these sit...

Re: Introverts & Fellowship

Hi Jason, Many people can sympathize with what you are experiencing, I'm sure. I struggle with exactly this same sort of thing myself on a daily basis. You might find it encouraging to know that to a large extent, I think I can honestly say that I've managed to overcome my tendency towards introvers...

Re: Literally 6 Days

There is no indication that the original creation was corruptible. God said that it was GOOD! It's because Adam and Eve Sinned There's no such thing as a "lesser" paradise I can't see how you think the original creation was not corruptible. If it were not corruptible, Adam and Eve could not have si...

Re: Literally 6 Days

Hi Dwight, Yes, the 7 day range is the aspect of the creation week that I was referring to. The question is, is 7 significant because it's the number of days it took God to finish the creation or is 7 significant for other reasons? 7 is obviously used many, many other times in Scripture. Many of tho...
