Re: Catholic error in the Middle Ages

Dean Braxton makes it very clear there were only two persons receiving praise and glory in Heaven, the Father and the Son. NOBODY else!!

He did see the Mary mother of Jesus doing something with the Living Water but did not "speak" to her.

Re: Was the Emperor Constantine TRULY a Christian?

Constantine was not blind or deaf, he knew there were a good number of Christians in the officer ranks of the Legions. This is borne out by archeology of Roman forts as far north as Hadrian's Wall. Any Roman general wanting to be emperor absolutely needed all the support of the Legions he could get....

Re: Does Kent Hovind believe what he preach?

I don't feel too sorry for Hovind. He made his own bed and sowed his own seeds. I don't know a whole lot about his tax issues except what he really was doing was "structuring". Basically when you "structure" payments and income in such a way to avoid bank reporting requirements. ...

Re: sulfur

I don't know if this is accurate but I remember being told that "brimstone" was sulfur. I know my lungs don't even like safe levels of sulfur vapor. Found this out walking on the "safe" path in the volcano field in Hawaii.

Re: Well Trump fired...

But as each day goes by, I'm hoping against hope that Mueller will be the catalyst that somehow drains the chaos and corruption out of the White House... ... and gives us President Pence. Yes, strange how things might work. Let's face it, without Trump, we'd be looking at Slick Willy for a First Du...

Re: Have you had any supernatural experiences?

Supernatural AKA paranormal things do happen. If macho cops are willing to admit them then you should pay attention. Cops have this idea they might appear unhinged or weak or nuts if they admit a supernatural encounter, so when they do admit having one that means they were rattled so bad they don't ...

Re: Well Trump fired...

Comey is an embarrassment to the badge. He had all the spine of a jellyfish and none of the integrity of jellyfish. Comey was playing political politics long before Trump was a household name. He thought he could continue his game under Trump, likely thinking he was safe in his position. Well, Trump...

Re: The NKJV re examined

How many fans of the 1611 KJV known about these symbols in the 1611? I don't know exactly which printing these are in. Also notice there are margin notes! Wonder if King James saw this since he hated margin notes? Romans 1, a witch growing up from the ground with branches growing out from her finge...

Re: Gallup poll finds to fill pews - preach scripture

Totally agree. Speaking for myself I feel like I go away hungry, unfilled most times. Our church has slipped into the rut so many have that in trying to bolster plummeting attendance/membership the meat has been removed over the years. But this causes a vicious cycle of lower numbers and less meat g...

Re: Do any of you have the NASB Study Bible

I thought I had access but guess I don't. Do have an ESV study if that might help. I'll dig around and see what I can find to help you out. In the meanwhile, how about the Mounce Reverse-Interlinear New Testament? I like the feature of clicking the Greek word and the dictionary shows up to see most ...

Re: Why did no New Testament books mention AD70?

I lean to the earlier date. For one thing, late dating is a favorite tactic of Bible/Christianity haters like Bart Ehrmann. The further they can put the written Scriptures in the future, the easier it is to claim the Apostles did not write them but rather they were made up by others separated in tim...

Re: giants

When we visited Pompeii it was mentioned that male remains showed the average was around 5'3" +/- 2". IIRC women were 4'10" average. Lesser known than Pompeii is the nearby ruins of Herculaneum. The remains at that site were taller than Pompeii. Again plugging in the old 512k thumb dr...

Re: giants

Michael Heiser says Goliath was approximately 6'9" and he likely got that from the Septuagint. Also he says archeology in that region shows males were 5'3" - 5'5" and women about 5' for the era. I'm 6'4" and standing next to a 6'9" guy (usually a fit basketball player) I fee...
