Re: Dr. Michael Heiser

I've got a different angle on the local vs global flood puzzle. The clues are right in the Bible in plain sight. Here goes: the flood came to destroy the wicked, right? Now, after the flood the population should be much more obedient than the previous occupants, nephilim and their offspring and foll...

Re: Billy Graham

Son of a poor dirt farmer in North Carolina to world known preacher and moral compass. He's still touching people's lives and consciences. His body is deceased but his work for the Lord will continue to the end of time. Who could write a life story or movie script like that, except God? I don't see ...

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

I used to believe Jesus was in hell for 3 days. This was due to the Apostle's Creed read at the beginning of every service (reformed). "He descended into Hell, and on the 3rd day rose from the dead." Certainly gives the definite impression that Jesus was cast into hell to take the torment for our si...

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

Sometimes I sense a little bit of latent hostility toward my presence on this board, although not from everyone here. I could be misinterpreting signals, but this doesn't seem like the friendliest place for discussion, or at least not for me. Just sayin'. No hostility at all. This forum has been ar...

Reliable source for events in Israel & Middle East

I've watched this guy part time the past 2 years and he's got great insight on events swirling around Israel. He's a retired Israeli Army commander who still has contacts in active duty, so he gets scoop others have no idea about. But he won't divulge classified info or put people at risk with unwis...

Re: Dr. Michael Heiser

I was just using Revelation 22 to back up my point.Also I think you are technically correct about the KJV bible but I don't want to get side tracked from my original point. You see the KJV bible is an old earth translation in both the old and new testaments,and so why are all new translations young...

Re: Dr. Michael Heiser

I believe >>>>>>>. Revelation 22:18-19 .So I have problems trusting anybody who relies on modern biblical scholorship for truth. I also think that when it comes to the OT the Christian church has allowed itself to be influenced by religious jews who reject Jesus as their Messiah. Revelation 22 is r...

Re: Dr. Michael Heiser

One observation that was driven home to me is, never ever ever base your theology, belief system or even a single point based only on an English translation of any kind. Not unless you've done a bunch of study in the original sources. A good example is Psalm 82 , the ESV is the only one I know of t...

Re: Dr. Michael Heiser

Close to a year ago after the BSF study classes were done for the summer, I felt lost on what to study and where to go. So I prayed about it, asking for guidance. The answer came swiftly, first Dr. Hugh Ross and a couple weeks later, Dr Michael Heiser. I have been busy since then. Before I used to s...

Re: Samuel and Eli

I'd forgotten about that story. As a kid our family got the newest children's bible stories book from the church. The part about Eli breaking his neck was presented as he was big as in tall. That's why he broke his neck, falling from higher than "normal" people is what killed him. I remember being c...
