Actually 2 Peter 3:5 isn't talking about the flood of Noah at all but about a flood that happened earlier than that. We are getting a little off topic (no thanks to me :D ), but if you will read again, I posted that vs. 6 (not vs. 5) referenced the flood we read about in Genesis 6 . Maybe we could ...

Talking to a Jehovah's Witness

I've had an opportunity to study in-depth with several members of this group, and wanted to share some thoughts. When talking with a Jehovah's Witness, arguing from the Bible is often not the best approach (at least at the beginning of the study). Because the New World Translation (NWT) is an interp...

The verses in Psalms 68:33 and 2 Peter 3:5 say (in the King James ) that the earth is old, not young. So does Moses in Genesis 49:26 and Deuternomy 33:13-18 The problem is that the terms "ancient" and "long ago" are subjective descriptors. Are the mountains ancient? Yes. Did the heavens exist long ...

<blockquote> 1. Genesis 2:4 reads, " These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day (yom) that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens ". Firstly I bring your attention to 'generations' - why not have 'days' rather than 'generations' (which implies ...

Well, it has been a while since I have been able to post to this forum. I enjoy the discussions here, but work has been quite hectic and if I am to stick to my priorities, I cannot let the addictiveness of meeting on-line override my commitments to my family, my church family, personal evangelism an...

Kurieo, Nice to make your acquaintance. My reading of your other posts and Felgar's comments has risen my anticipation of your return. Thanks for your response. Strix, it is not my intention to discuss every aspect of the YEC vs. OEC debate within this thread. I certainly don't anticipate that type ...

Re: RE: Demon possession

Felgar, you're encouragement is always refreshing (sincerely)... and yes, as you wrote in your previous post, "all these things take some measure of Faith to believe in the first place". You'll find in third world countries demonic forces reveal themselves more openly. It's part of Satan's strategy ...

I second what Little Shepherd has said... excerpts from the Quran: Surah 9:5 - "So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay...

RE: Darwinian Theology

Another interesting insight into Darwin's mind: "...I am quite conscious that my speculations run beyond the bounds of true science...It is a mere rag of an hypothesis with as many flaw(s) and holes as sound parts." --- Charles Darwin to Asa Gray, cited by Adrian Desmond and James Moore, Darwin , (N...

Your point about letting you and the Holy Spirit decide the validity of various ancient scriptures sort of invalidates 2000 years of thought and scholarship. How do you know whether or not what you decide is really true? Can you say with certainty whether or not it was a result of divine inspiratio...

RE: Demon possession

Many use vague scriptures to make claims that certain things, like miracles, healing, or speaking in tongues are not longer a part of the Christian life today, but scripture does not say this is the case. (1 Cor 13 is the scripture used to support this) Thank you for the response, Zoe... I would be...

Re: Fighting against demons

Zechariah is referencing the end times, not the present. I agree that Zechariah is referencing the end times, but if you go back through the verses, tracking the phrase "that day" backwards through the 12th chapter, you end up in Zech. 12:3 "It will come about in that day..." What day? Zech. 12:2-3...

RE: Biblical evidence that Satan = angel

I'd like to throw in my 2 cents if I could (although the value of my input may depreciate with some after they read it)... :wink: I do not find any Scriptural evidence that Satan was once an angel. That does not mean that he is or isn't...or was or wasn't... we just simply aren't told. There are som...
