Re: WAS Nero the Beast written of in Revelation - or NOT?

What I have noticed with apocalyptic writing ( Revelation and Daniel for example) is that, when it comes to interpreting ( certain)imagery concretely, the writer does that for us. It seems to me that symbolism is huge in revelatory visions. You had Stephen's before he was stoned ( as he was being st...

Re: Immigration reform (for Byblos)

For example, the legislature in Alabama passed a law in 2019 that made it a Class A felony to provide an abortion to a person who has been pregnant for more than 6 weeks, regardless of how she became pregnant. In other words, if a woman is raped and becomes pregnant, but doesn't find out for 6 week...

Re: Immigration reform (for Byblos)

Anyone that comes in illegally should be deported back, unless they come from a war zone or avoiding persecution ( religious) Those that come under those circumstances should be monitored for at least one year and if they commit ANY crime during that period, are deported immediately. Immigration has...

Ed,
Do you think the majority of the Democratic party would agree with that 1956 Republican party platform?

Re: Is salvation Given or is it earned?

This is why I question predestination. If Salvation given and not earned what’s the point You have to define predestination. Are people predestined to be saved? Or are those that believe, predestined for salvation ? The difference being the view that God has predestined people to be saved and other...

What a mess you guys are in.
A President that doesn't shake the hand of the House Speaker and a House Speaker the tears apart a SOU speech on Live TV.

Re: Anyone else horrified?

The only thing that truly shocks me is that anyone is shocked but what ANY politician does anymore.
Trump simply wasn't smart enough ( or cared enough) to be discreet in the same way that every other president or politician has been when they do this "quid pro quo" crap.

Re: Quick answers about Bible

Jesus said don’t call anyone father but the father in heaven. Why other churches have being called pastors father. Why? Jesus even makes the explicit statement to "call no one your father but your Father in heaven"? Matthew 23:9 This is a direct statement to not call any one by the TITLE Father, th...

Re: RTB: Serious Problems with Evolution

At the level of organism reproduction. If the organism reproduces, the new material is selected. If it doesn't, it isn't. What drives that reproduction? I find Michael behe’s natural selection and directed mutation . My stance has gradually grown more evolution friendly https://evolutionnews.org/20...
