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...

Re: Does "Holy" Mean "Set Apart"?

I have noticed the same thing. Interestingly, I was just reading a book by Scot McKnight and he also made the argument that holy has more to do with devotion than separation. If 'theology' books are part of the problem here, perhaps 'theology' is also part of the solution. After all, how could 'holy...

Re: Answering a correspondent about full-preterism

Quote from the email you received... "I live in New England and it has divided so many people in the body of Christ" This is the line that struck me. I've been pastoring in NY State, now, for 15+ years and I can honestly say I've NEVER come across full preterism other than on the internet. Of course...
