Re: Breakthrough Movie

Darin,
Thanks for the info. Looked it up and saw that the movie was made from a book. Ordered the book for my wife; she'll read it and give me a report! Unbelievable how many books she reads. :D

Re: Conditional Immortality & Universalism

Hi Paidion, Jesus said that some hearing His words had (present indicative active) eternal life as was speaking. If those persons had eternal life prior to their death, and were then "dead as a doornail" for centuries, how could they have had eternal life? Do you see eternal life as only future or i...

Hi Steve, You wrote: However, to say that human immortality is conditional (as I believe the Bible teaches) does not mean that a mortal being cannot be sustained for a period of time prior to being allowed to be consumed. I'm struggling to see any difference in mortality between the saved and the lo...

Conditional Immortality & Universalism

Steve, Recently listening to your discussion of the final judgement in Revelations 20 I was struck by a thought I hadn't considered before and that is if immortality is conferred only upon faith in Christ (or attachment to Him) that there is no possibility of conversion in hell as the condemned woul...

Re: Presto Chango!

Thanks Steve and good observation on your part also. I hadn't caught the missing "blood" idea about Paul's statement. Paul made considerable use of body (soma) in reference to the church, particularly in 1 Cor. 12.

Re: Presto Chango!

BrotherAlan, I took some time while you were gone to do a more in depth study of John 6. You appear to take John 6:53-54 in a literal manner, the basis of the doctrine of transubstantiation. Considering these verses: John 6:53-54 (NASB) 53. So Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless ...

Re: The Holy Spirit - a person??

BrotherAlan, I might add, to what you said, that Matthew's recounting of Jesus' words regarding making disciples "baptizing them into (Greek eis , not en ) the name" can be understood as being baptized into the "person" of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, as the scriptures elsewhere speak of being ...

Re: Theology "From the Top"!

Hi Paidion, You wrote: I also think I gave another solution, the one I believe to be correct. God created man with free will. God always allows man always to exercise his free will, for He wants all people to freely choose to have a relationship with Him and to obey Him. If God forcibly overrules so...
