Re: God and His Son

Darin and Paidion, If you google "Tertullian persona" you will find more on the subject than you care to read; everything from Catholic to Jehovah's Witness, and there is a lot in between. There are many opinions as to just what he meant. Regardless, Tertullian is by no means the final authority, an...

Re: God and His Son

Paidion, I do believe you are in error, though I probably did not explain myself very well. You wrote: Homer to Darin wrote: If I understand you, your position is the same as that which I believe to be the best explanation: not three persons but one God as three simultaneous persona? This is a posit...

Re: Matthew 25:46

Hello brother Rick, Matthew 25:32 (New King James Version) 32. All the nations ( ethnos ) will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. How do you get around the difficulty of ethnos , in the plural, being a reference to the ...

Re: God and His Son

Darin, You wrote: Like Paidion, I also don't like the compound view of God -- I know it's not orthodox, but I prefer to think of God as having different aspects which manifest in different ways -- there's a Word aspect that in some respects is unified with the Father aspect, but somehow can be manif...

Re: Matthew 25:46

Jess, You wrote regarding the sheep and the goats: The passage addresses judgment about how the sheep and goats treated Christians I believe you are correct in this statement. IMHO, the passage is one of the most misunderstood statements of Jesus. I do not take it as being primarily about helping th...

Re: Excellent Article on Hell

Suzana, Good to hear you the other day! You wrote: I have difficulty grasping the idea of being able to enjoy heaven knowing that people I may have loved are eternally suffering elsewhere. How would it be any different if they were suffering there for 10,000 years, until they repent, as some of the ...

Universalism and the Patience of God

Luke 13 (New King James Version) 1. There were present at that season some who told Him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. 2. And Jesus answered and said to them, “Do you suppose that these Galileans were worse sinners than all other Galileans, because they su...

Re: Prayer and Miracles

I had no interest in a debate re cessationist vs continuationist(?) positions. But I do think this article touches on the hiddenness of God and should perhaps have been posted on that thread. One thing that irks me is Christian blather about miracles. You would think they are routine, expected happe...

Prayer and Miracles

So if a person is diagnosed with cancer, they are prayed for, and the cancer disappears, we can not be sure it is a miracle:

[Some cancers may go away]

No problem to me - all healing is from God!
