Recent thoughts on Job...

I've been struggling a bit with the book of Job (one of my favorite books) Up until recently, I believed that Job (the man) was a historical person and that Job (the story) was literally true I still believe the man was a historical person (though I don't see the point as particularly important) And...

Re: Preaching to Myself

Thanks Steve. I wrote this poem as we grieved We named you Noah We never got to meet you Until you were asleep Instead of tears of joy We used our tears to weep We are glad we got to hold you And see your hands and feet We’re so sorry that we could not hear The sound of your heartbeat We hope that y...

Re: A question of clarification for our Open Theist friends

I was just reading an older book from Roger Olson titled "Questions to All Your Answers" On page 97 he says "But what if God has a blueprint for your life but somehow hides from himself whether or not you will live according to it? (A group of evangelicals called open theists believe God limits his ...

Re: A question of clarification for our Open Theist friends

I also believe you've been representing open theism accurately.

I remember, a while back, I was reading something by Dallas Willard that made me think he might be taking the 'willful ignorance' view. But he was also reluctant to take the label 'open theist' as far as I know.

Re: Where Does it Fit?, or Was there Pottery on the Ark?

I don't disregard the date. I just don't take it as 100% fact. It seems to me a lot of their dating methods are based on presuppositions. I am genuinely open to multiple views (theistic evolution, old earth creationism & young earth creationism). I am a young earth creationist because I was persuade...

Re: Where Does it Fit?, or Was there Pottery on the Ark?

I read the AIG article some time ago and it doesn’t really answer the question as to where it fits other that it was built after Babel and after the flood. For some reason I have a hard time accepting that because the bible says there were cities very early on (Cain built cities) and Gobekl Tepe wa...
