Re: Local flood and local fire?

However, when Peter refers to 'the world at that time' he is not referring to the whole planet. He is referring to the known world at the time of the flood, which when you look at the geographical context of Genesis 1-6 centers on the region of Mesopotamia. We don't need to look at Genesis to under...

Re: Local flood and local fire?

I don't see how it can be justified by the context and words in 2 Peter 3:3–7 that the term world means anything less than world. I don't see K addressing Peters words in that link, either (did I miss it?). Check: https://www.blueletterbible.org/nasb/2pe/3/3/ss1/s_1159003 https://www.blueletterbible...

Was that supposed to be a rebuttal? Don't see how you succeeded here if that was your intention.

Re: September 23, 2017 Revelation 12 sign

Matthew 24:42-44 1 Thessalonians 5 5 Now as to the times and the epochs, brethren, you have no need of anything to be written to you. 2 For you yourselves know full well that the day of the Lord will come just like a thief in the night. 3 While they are saying, “Peace and safety!” then destruction ...

Things that represent your relationship with him? Then I posted was my answer.

Re: Euthanasia for Unbearable Mental Illnesses

From my understanding, which comes mostly from my dad's hospice nurse, is that morphine can shut down organs. So, in lower doses, it helps with pain. In higher doses, it basically hastens organ failure. Is organ failure and death inevitable? In many cases, yes. But if someone is given high doses of...

Re: September 23, 2017 Revelation 12 sign

I think the progressive cycling of events that form prophecy is fairly accurate in the areas you see. I'm also fairly entertained by how we have a progressing pre-WWI geopolitics forming (I stated before Trump and the nationalist rise that will only continue). I think there is a rise of division syn...

Re: Euthanasia for Unbearable Mental Illnesses

I would like to really portray clarity, here, but I think it's going to be a bit hard for me. What if the reduction in pain = sedation which speeds up death? There is no easing the pain. There is no pain beyond the pain of dying (in my opinion including the comorbidities and disease/trauma leading t...

Re: Euthanasia for Unbearable Mental Illnesses

Rick, I'd say the line is pretty much indistinguishable, even with much knowledge and experience in light, moderate and heavy sedation... But the point remains? Especially if we are talking about IV vs oral. I've done both (helped my great aunt pass, too and it was oral morphine). And taking oral me...

Re: Euthanasia for Unbearable Mental Illnesses

Then there is the scenarios where people are 'helping' (coercion) others decide to die so they don't have to live with responsibilities of that person in their life, or the other extreme of Munchhausen disorder and projecting it upon the other person. The true debate does (as I think all here see) l...
