Start with Scripture?

Some food for thought. Of reformed theologians I find more good nuggets with Tim Keller than many others. We also thought it was important to begin our confession with God rather than with Scripture. This is significant. The Enlightenment was overconfident about human rationality. Some strands of it...

Re: Exactly what is the Gospel?

The Gospel isn't a what. It's a who.

Speaking of Ken Ham, things aren't going so well for him and AIG.

Re: Reason for Parables

Thank you for your thoughts. I agree that it seems like a horrendous view of God, which is definitely why it bothered me so much. What you say about there being an immediate context makes a lot of sense and is something that I considered, but I'm trying to be really really careful about falling int...

Re: Reason for Parables

Good thoughts in my opinion. I'm not a Calvinist, nor am I an Arminian. I think both those positions are helpful in understanding things and I also think that even positions that seem diametrically opposed within those two systems can be true at the same time when viewed and understood properly. I t...

Re: Question on faith

All truth is God's truth. Where things get silly, in my opinion, is when people take a particular approach to interpreting Scripture and they take their methodology or the systematic theology derived from it and then equate that with Scripture itself. You get all sorts of silly things when that is d...

Re: Why can`t I hear God?

under attack On November 8, 2012 A.D. the verse of Daniel 11:40 came to fulfillment. There isn't much left til the end of that chapter. October 19, 2012 A.D. is also significant regarding the wreaking of havoc as written in the New Testament Epistles. If one were to interpolate a literal time span ...

Re: Ken Ham and Bill Nye

Didn't watch the debate.

Ken Ham is about the worst representative of creationism that one could ask for in my opinion. He certainly doesn't represent me.

All I really need to say.

Re: Question on faith

I often see people say that God's word says thus and so, so they will have faith in God's word, not in (insert science, man's reasoning, etc). It is presented as that their take on something is solidly backed up by God's words. I wonder if it isnt often that they have faith in themselves, as having...

Re: Why can`t I hear God?

Okay, I definitely believe in God and accept Jesus as my Saviour but I do have doubts, tears and a lot of questions. The thing I`m wrestling with at the moment is although I am totally convinced in my faith I don`t seem to be hearing God. I talk to Him all the time but I can`t hear Him! Maybe I jus...

Re: Books ( or anything else) that changed our lives

Ellen White has some good materials. She also has some that in my opinion are a bit off the wall.

The issue I have with how some Seventh Day Adventists use her material is that she's treated as if she's scripture itself.

Re: Prayers

Jlay, Reading through that letter (which I did in full and carefully) was painful and at the same time I was also proud of you and your willingness to speak out. I'm glad my past writings were a little helpful to you and had no idea the depth of what you were addressing in your own life and ministry...
