Re: How were the Chaldeans in Hab 1:5-6?

That is pretty good, DBowling!

Could also the Chaldeans also refer to their demonic religion and sorcery - occult arts too?

How were the Chaldeans in Hab 1:5-6?

Question - whom are the Chaldeans Habakkuk spoke of and whom Paul quoted in Acts 13:40 which refers to the Chaldeans? Habakkuk 1:5-6, "Look among the nations, and see; wonder and be astounded. For I am doing a work in your days that you would not believe if told. 6 For behold, I am raising up t...

Re: Luke 13:33

Just a word of caution... Usually people deny Christ's deity, not that he was actually a historical person who lived and died around 2000 years ago. Speaking with someone who denies history, you will probably have a hard time reasoning with him. Indeed, it is like trying to have a meaningful dialog...

Re: Was Jesus Tortured in hell for 3 days and 3 Nights?

Back to the subject. The doctrine that taught that Jesus was Tortured in hell for 3 days and 3 Nights was a development and twisting the old Ransom Theory that was popular way back around 200 - 600 ish AD where God paid a ransom to the devil so the devil would give up the souls of men. This develope...

Re: WAS dropping atom bombs on WWII Japan an immoral act?

Our discussion over when, in wartime, is it moral to kill enemy combatants, got me to thinking about the atom bombs dropped on civilian populations of Japan. Prior to dropping these, hundreds of thousands of Japanese civilians had already been killed by allied bombing. Japan still would not surrend...

Re: Why doesn't Judaism proselytize Judaism ?

Jews have long acted this way. Not sure why but I think it is to reduce corruption. Back in the day it made more sense as a number of Christians and other groups were against them. True... and I add in more below... Basically if they tried to proselytize Judaism they would have been sent to firing ...

Re: The Old Testament Concept of God

...I agree now, but the rebuttal some have of why would God allow and cause so much death to happen, well as you said those unsaved humans were enemies, and with the saved it is either a byproduct of being in this world and/or a way for God to discipline or strengthen us... I am not sure any answer...

Re: Was Jesus Tortured in hell for 3 days and 3 Nights?

Just returned last Monday night from a ministry trip. Great time. around 21 people came to Jesus - saved - in four days. Many more prayed for inner healing issues and set free. Now I return and see this topic... My answer is NO - Jesus was not tortured in hell in order to wrestle to get the keys of ...

You don't find many out there that simply let the text say what it says.

Except for his angel/human hybrid beliefs, that he doesn't get from consistent exegesis of the text.
