Re: Are we called to sell our possessions and give to the poor?

Hi jwalsh, My views are very much like Homer's, though I was once much closer to the Bruderhof in my thinking on this subject. In studying and meditating of the teachings of Christ, through the years, it became plain the degree to which Jesus used hyperbole in his teaching. It seems dangerous to ass...

However, to say that human immortality is conditional (as I believe the Bible teaches) does not mean that a mortal being cannot be sustained for a period of ti...

Re: Digital Ministries link does not appear to be valid

Jacob, Thank you so much for pointing these out! I do not keep track of the contents of any of the websites, as you probably know, because they are the creations of other people who also manage them. I would love to have those lectures on our website. If you would contact Tim Pearson about this (at ...

Re: Presto Chango!

Good observations, Homer. I don't think that the reference to not discerning "the body" (1 Corinthians 11:29) has anything to do with transubstantiation, that is, with acknowledging the change of bakery goods into a human body (why would Paul, then, not follow up with the complementary phrase, "and ...

Re: Digital Ministries link does not appear to be valid

I apologize, Jacob. The man who created and ran the digital ministries.us site has closed that site down. The materials that were there can (mostly) be found now at the following sites:

Re: 1 Timothy 2:11-15 and 1 Corinthians 14:33-40 revisited

The proof that this is a quote from the Corinthians' letter to Paul in verse 34-35 is that Paul refers back to these two verses in verse 39, telling the Corinthians to "FORBID NOT TO SPEAK WITH TONGUES" - a clear reproof of the earlier opinion expressing that women WERE to be forbidden to speak in ...
