Re: The Future: Open or Closed?

Heard this explanation many years ago: E. Cobham Brewer 1810–1897. Dictionary of Phrase and Fable. 1898. Cock-crow. The Hebrews divided the night into four watches: 1, The “beginning of the watches” or “even” (Lam. ii. 19); 2, “The middle watch” or “midnight” (Judg. vii. 19); 3, “The cock-crowing;” ...

Re: LimitedNegatives?

Paidion, You wrote: Why then later on, did He give the Israelites specific instructions about sacrificing? I think it was by way of concession. Other nations offered appeasing sacrifices to THEIR gods so that their gods would not harm them. So the Israelites wished to do the same. So God allowed it ...

Re: LimitedNegatives?

Perhaps there is a better explanation for this. Last night I browsed through Alexander Campbell's book "Christianity Restored", in particular the 85 pages devoted to principles of interpretation where he goes into great detail on various figures of speech. For example, he divides metonomy into four ...

Re: Getting Burned out on Theology?

Jason,

Jesus had some pretty firm positions and He wasn't much fun to be around for some folks either. Maybe you are too hard on yourself.

Re: LimitedNegatives?

Perhaps the term should actually be "limited negation". See here: http://www.semioticon.com/seo/N/negation.html Note: There is a "long" version of the article you can click on. Here is a comment from the conclusion: It seems simple to 'just say no', but negation is in fact astonishingly complicated....

Re: Getting Burned out on Theology?

Jason, Your comments regarding getting burned out on theology immediately brought to mind David Bercot's statement in the preface to his A Dictionary of Early Christian Beliefs . Bercot writes: The early church concentrated chiefly on the nature of Christian living because the essential core of Chri...

Re: The Hiddeness Of God

Jim, The same question would apply to numerous things. Why doesn't God make old people young again in answer to prayer? I'm 68. It would be nice to be 21 again (well, maybe not). I think his whole argument rests on a false understanding regarding prayer. As C. S. Lewis said, prayer is not weak, but ...

Re: Worship "In Spirit and Truth"

Paidion, et al I found in comments by John Peter Lange in his commentary on John the following: John 2:19-22 19. Jesus answered them, "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up." 20. The Jews then said, "It took forty-six years to build this temple, and will You raise it up in three ...

Re: Worship "In Spirit and Truth"

Hebrews 10:19-25 19.Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus, 20. by a new and living way which He inaugurated for us through the veil, that is, His flesh, 21. and since we have a great priest over the house of God, 22. let us draw near with a sinc...

Re: Prayer Request: I Need a Job

Hello Bro Rick! Glad to hear you got the job! Sorry to say I didn't notice this thread until today and then when I did I went racing through looking for how it all turned out. Kind of like reading an exciting suspense novel - except I don't read novels so I'm just guessing. Anyway its good news! God...
