Re: What is Monotheism per the Bible?

I'm merely opening this for a discussion, but I do have questions. Clearly, Heiser is not saying there are more than one God or others like Himself / Yahweh - he affirms his belief in the ONE Holy Creator (of ALL things) God and the Trinity. Notice that these are gods Heiser notes from Scripture are...

Re: Is Repentance a Work?

I was actually kidding just a bit per Nessa's comment. But nothing I've said wasn't communicated publicly before. It's ancient history. I certainly appreciate his many thoughtful and insightful posts. But when a person disagrees with the viewpoint of another, no matter how sincere their passion - an...

Your Superbowl Prediction

OK, make your predictions now. Mine is, Chiefs by at least one touchdown! But with Brady, you just never know what might happen!

Nessa: Like Rob Bell, William Paul Young skirted around universalism.... And now he's finally admitting it...it's a Oprah Winfrey moment.. 'You're saved, you're saved... Everybody's saved Yep, the Oprah religion is all about feeding your own narcissism while going about espousing some feel-good non...

Re: Reasons to Believe Biochemist on Covid-19 Vaccines' Safety

You know, this thread is WAY past the point of beating a dead horse - as now it's becoming exceptionally personal and now beating on each other - as, at this point, just about zero grace being shown in the back and forth. And I was going to respond to some things I disagreed with. But as I can see c...

Re: Reasons to Believe Biochemist on Covid-19 Vaccines' Safety

Rick: Philip, You going to say anything about this? Or is it only when I say something you don’t like? This is pathetic. It really is. I'll comment later - I'm working - and no need to get so testy, Rick! Seems like you take things way too personally, sometimes. But I haven't even had time read the...

Again, what part of Russia - and what was your option?

Re: Reasons to Believe Biochemist on Covid-19 Vaccines' Safety

Rick: The people who can see through this charade that’s been perpetrated on us will see it. And you can't possibly know that to be the truth, even if some qualified experts think it is - and certainly as most don't think so. Rick: Others will just be sheep and get the vaccine for something that ov...

Re: Elon Musk on the meaning of life

Hello, Dimitar, long time since you've been here. Do you still live in Russia? If so, what part of Russia?

Hope you'll hang around - we don't have too many from your area of the world.

Re: Reasons to Believe Biochemist on Covid-19 Vaccines' Safety

Rick, I'm struggling to understand some of your logic here - and please don't take this personally. You said: I still haven’t come to any conclusions whether or not masks work, especially when there’s really no way to practically wear them “properly” 100% of the time. And you said: For me personally...

Arguments and Perspectives for the Existence of the Soul

A new poster has asked about this matter of the soul and what evidence or research there might be concerning it. Here's some info linked per Dr. Michael Heiser: Here are some good links to get started on the issue of the mind / body / soul: https://drmsh.com/biblical-anthropology-and-the-mind-body-d...

Re: Reasons to Believe Biochemist on Covid-19 Vaccines' Safety

Thanks, Stu - I'll look into it. Weird thing is, they had been pretty careful about precautions, don't go out too much. This stuff just really sucks!
