Re: Proverbs 30, and Jesus' pre-incarnate "sonship"

Hi Paidion, A few verses where " kai " means even or namely (as Strong lists it). Revelation 1:7 (YLT) - "Lo, he doth come with the clouds, and see him shall every eye, even ( kai ) those who did pierce him, and wail because of him shall all the tribes of the land. Yes! Amen!" This verse shows that ...

Re: Proverbs 30, and Jesus' pre-incarnate "sonship"

Hi again Paidion, Part of the issue for attempting to define the obscure is that we simply lack the necessary vocabulary to accurately describe eternal things. Yet in spite of that struggle, as sons and daughters of God, we all have a compulsion to put into words our impressions of the God who loved...

Re: Proverbs 30, and Jesus' pre-incarnate "sonship"

Hi Singalphile, Regarding the question of how God could be called a "Father" before Jesus the incarnate Son was conceived, and later "begotten" in heaven as the First-born from among the dead: Wouldn't God's creation of the "sons of God" (the angels who sang together for joy when the earth was creat...

Re: Proverbs 30, and Jesus' pre-incarnate "sonship"

Hi Paidion, Your argument might have more weight if Colossians 1:17 said that "He WAS before all things..." The fact that it uses the present tense, "He IS before all things" would seem to give Strong's "superior to" figurative sense to this instead. Especially since the very next verse 18 talks abo...

Re: Proverbs 30, and Jesus' pre-incarnate "sonship"

Referring to Anochria's and Paidion's older comments above concerning Psalms 2:12, "Kiss the Son…" was a directive given to the " kings " in Ps. 2:10. "Be wise, now therefore, O ye kings : be instructed ye judges of the earth". These "kings" and "judges of the earth" are the same " kings of the eart...

If you are interested in a link which you would be able to share with this person at your church, may I recommend the following? https://adammaarschalk.com/2013/09/08/the-bible-does-not-teach-that-damascus-syria-is-about-to-be-destroyed-2/ This link is a very thorough treatment of the Isaiah 17:1 ve...

Re: Presto Chango!

Hi Paidion, Indeed yes, we do feel blessed to have parted ways with that stifling atmosphere. They call themselves an independent Baptist church, and currently, I think they have two other branch churches started by them which are under their supervision. Very ingrown. Lots of intermarriage between ...

Re: Presto Chango!

Hi Homer, In one respect, your guess is correct; that church didn't allow ANY who were not members to participate - no exceptions - not even for visiting ministers. The argument was that they would not be able to determine whether the person was observing the ordinance in a properly righteous frame ...

THREE Beasts of Revelation - #1 and #3 compared

Contrary to popular opinion, there were actually three beasts that composed a major portion of the drama we find in Revelation: #1) The Sea Beast of Revelation 13:1-2 #2) The Land Beast (aka the False Prophet) of Revelation 13:11 #3) The Scarlet Beast in the wilderness of Revelation 17:3 Each of the...

Re: Presto Chango!

Hi Paidion, Since I'm not yet aware of your perspective on the communion observance, I'm not sure exactly what your intent is by saying we "receive Jesus in a special way" by this act. (Once received, always received.) What I do know is that mankind always seems to have the latent danger of giving u...
