Re: Do Reformed Christians Need to Embrace Six-Day Creation?

My understanding of the Reformed Mantra goes something like... "By Grace Alone Through Faith Alone In Christ Alone" The Reformed mantra goes FAR beyond that - offering God's grace only to a select number who cannot resist or choose it - in which salvation is a done deal made by God long b...

Re: John H. Walton said what about concordism?

However, as you note, the human writers were not the only agents involved in the creation of the OT Scriptures. The Holy Spirit was also involved, and the Holy Spirit is not limited in scope to original audience or the original context. Which is why Scripture is able to speak to all people of all t...

Re: Why doesn't Judaism proselytize Judaism ?

What the neocons seem to believe is that the supposed rewards and freedoms of Democracy are so compelling that, given the chances and leaders, societies under monarchies or dictatorships will excitedly embrace it. Most of them seem to be very secular in their thinking, and don't understand that such...

Re: Why doesn't Judaism proselytize Judaism ?

Any student of history knows my last comments about Jews are true. But that doesn't mean they or Israel haven't caused problems. And for the record, I despise the shenanigan's and beliefs of the neocons - they've conned themselves!

Re: Russian Jet Shot Down by Syrian Rebels

It's an exceptionally complex situation. Bad guys on every corner. Which is why the West gets caught up in trying to pick an entity to help, often ending up with bad results. But it's always the usual suspects that stir this stuff up. The Persians, various Islamists, the Russians. It's difficult to ...

K: My father-in-law escaped from Poland via Russia as a boy.


Ah, so you wake up with a lass of Polish descent, as well? My bride is 100% pure Polish - which translates to 100% stubbornness, LOL.

Re: John H. Walton said what about concordism?

DB: The place that I disagree with Walton and Heiser is their premise that the ONLY valid interpretation of Genesis 1 is what the original audience would have understood within the context of their ancient cosmology. That is certainly a significant and valid understanding, but it is not the ONLY va...

Re: Why doesn't Judaism proselytize Judaism ?

Anti-antisemitism is currently on the rise all over Europe! They've been targets and outcasts for thousands of years, with so many children of the Holocaust era still being alive - it's no wonder they isolate themselves. This is what Scripture predicts, BTW. And so many groups have been Jew haters -...

Rick: "The outcome would be Pence looking for a new job, and Trump having a new VP running mate. As much as most of us agree that Trump isn't the ideal president, can't we all acknowledge that he was the ideal candidate to beat Clinton? And without Trump, we'd all be complaining about presiden...

Re: John H. Walton said what about concordism?

Walton has views similar to those in Dr. Johnny Miller's book (I've discussed before): "In the Beginning We Misunderstood." And that is, Moses is not providing the newly created Israel, with its pre-scientific age understandings and having absorbed 4 centuries of ancient Egyptian / Mesopot...
