Re: Movies that made you think

Three that come to mind. 1. Fiddler on the Roof - I've loved this movie since I was a teenager. But as my daughters grew older it came to mean so much more, and gave me a lot to ponder as a father. 2. Matrix - One of my favorite Sci Fi movies of all time. An exciting and at the time innovative non-C...

Re: John 20:28, My Lord and My God

One of the primary themes that John comes back to over and over in his Gospel is... Jesus is God. John makes this theme very clear, starting with the very first verse of his Gospel, John 1:1. "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." And throughout h...

Re: The accuracy of the Biblical creation account?

Also, this "stamp" doesn't exist for Day 7, God's rest, the symbol of which remains open for us to enter into even until now. (Hebrews 4:9-11) As I've said before Genesis 2:4 is my poster child for the premise that 'yom' does not necessarily refer to 24 hours within the context of the cre...

Re: The accuracy of the Biblical creation account?

I'm not sure where we are disagreeing in regards to the toledot The thing is when we see the towlĕdah phrase used (i.e., " these are the generations of... "), such points not to anything prior, but what is about to come after. This is the way it is always used in Scripture. Therefore, its ...

Re: The accuracy of the Biblical creation account?

Genesis 3 doesn't say prior to Adam if it does what verse is that in. We know that there was 24 hours starting from the first of one day of creation to the start of another day of creation, because the Bible says that the morning and the evening were the days. The day was only about 12 hours long i...

Re: The accuracy of the Biblical creation account?

So if all humans inherited their sin nature through one man, what does that say about any possible pre-Adamic men not having had a sin nature, as they would have preceded Adam? I was looking at 1 Cor 15:45 again recently due to a discussion at this site and I was struck by Paul's observation that A...

Re: The accuracy of the Biblical creation account?

Yes God created everything on day one but not in the way you are implying. God Created the heavens and the earth and light on day one then he took from what He created on day one and made everything from it. Actually, that's not what I am implying... What I am implying... actually explicitly statin...

Re: The accuracy of the Biblical creation account?

The sun could not have been there until day four because God said that was when He created it. So if God said He created it on day four then He did and it wasn't there until then. What everyone is over looking there dose not have to be a sun for there to be light. If you look at what the Bible you ...

Re: The accuracy of the Biblical creation account?

Gen 2:4 introduces a new creation episode. The traditional view takes “in that day” to mean “at the same time,” so that Gen 2:5-9 is a new way of describing the same events of Gen 1. However, “in that day” could very easily be construed in the sense of “right on the heels of” Gen 2:1-3. That is, ri...

Re: The accuracy of the Biblical creation account?

You can see it is more of a stretch to say the days were not days then to say God set up the concept of day and night on the first day like the Bible says He did A couple of quick questions about Genesis 1 "days" 1. How many hours does the period of time between evening and morning cover?...

Re: Was Adam and Eve saved?

I will put it this way. if he was saved then why did he not go to heaven when he died but instead to Abraham's busm? As a person who has put my faith in Jesus Christ, all three of these statements are true: I am saved - When I put my faith in Jesus Christ I passed from death into life and my final ...

Re: Certainty of belief

Here's why I'm certain that Christianity is true, and why I've put my faith in Jesus Christ. 1. First let's start with the existence of "God". Nature and science provide overwhelming evidence at both the intuitive level as well as the scientific level that some sort of intelligent Creator ...

Re: Were the Nephilim and the Sumerian mythical kings somehow related?

The issue with that is this: 6 And the angels who did not stay within their own position of authority, but left their proper dwelling, he has kept in eternal chains under gloomy darkness until the judgment of the great day— 7 just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise ind...
