Re: Literally 6 Days

Hi Dwight, I too have had difficulty with the terms myth and mytho-historical when applied to passages in the Bible. I think these terms can send the wrong message although I suppose when properly explained, they are useful terms. I'm not sure any single term adequately captures what may have been g...

Re: Preferred Bible Translation

If you'd like to study the Scriptures in their original languages as well as multiple modern translations, I've found blueletterbible.org to be a very helpful site. Once you look up a chapter, clicking the "Tools" button on the left of each verse presents an inline box showing both the original Gree...

Re: Did dinosaurs ever live alongside humans?

Hi Homer, Perhaps some contemporaries of Job would have been capable of discerning that Leviathan and Behemoth were not physically accessible in their own time period, if indeed they weren't. Other people probably wouldn't have been concerned with and/or capable of such discernment. However, why wou...

Re: Did dinosaurs ever live alongside humans?

Nothing God says about these creatures, nor their context, provides any reason to see them as imaginary or spiritual beings. Perhaps not on a casual, isolated reading of these passages. Yes, Leviathan and Behemoth are presented as physical creatures contemporary with Job. Job is challenged to physi...

Re: Did dinosaurs ever live alongside humans?

Hi Steve/TK, I personally have not made up my mind regarding the age of the earth or whether dinosaurs and man ever co-existed. However, despite the similarities of Behemoth and Leviathan to dinosaurs, I could see this as being merely coincidental. In Job, it seems likely to me that Behemoth and Lev...

Re: Spiritual Warfare and Bible Translators

I have heard it argued that if demons had the power to influence the the physical world, then this would mean demons had the power to create, a power that belongs only to God. Taking this logic even further, it could be claimed that if demons had such creative power, this would destroy the argument ...

Re: Letters, Epistles, and Baptism for the Dead

Thank you for the recommendation Homer and Steve. There a couple of other books in my purchase and reading queue, but I've added this one to the list. Perhaps someday soon. I'll be sure to respond once I've been able to read it.

Re: "Behold I come soon"

Hi Ian, There are at least 3 reasons 1st century Christians would have found comfort and hope in the judgment on Israel of 70 A.D.: Christians were being persecuted by the Jewish religious leaders. The judgment by Rome robbed them of the power to continue to do that. The destruction of the temple si...

Re: Letters, Epistles, and Baptism for the Dead

Hi Homer,

Sounds like an interesting book. I checked it out online. Seems like it was printed back in the 90's. Just wondering how you heard of it and what made you decide it might be a good read?

Re: Animals on the ark

Hi Matt, I agree that one's view of origins should not depend solely on the feasibility of the Ark. As you and Timios both point out, the saving of all animals on Earth via Noah's Ark may have been quite doable. However, despite how feasible the Ark situation is, it invariably leads to other questio...
