Re: Mysterious UFOs over Washington, D.C.

Rick: To me, they’re simply UFOs (Unidentified Flying Objects) at this point. I’m curious as to what Heiser thinks they are. Rick, Heiser is getting ready to weigh in more on the recent UFO stories involving the U.S. military. And the fact that these videos have been linked from within military shou...

Re: Can a born again Christian be unborn? OSAS

I believe 1 John 2:19 IS contrasting those of belief from those of only SEEMED to believe but then moved on / didn't truly believe. The entirety of the chapter shows contrasts between true believers and those who do not believe / aren't saved. "... does not know where he is going because the darknes...

Re: Can a born again Christian be unborn? OSAS

Also, do you believe God chooses who is saved and who is not, or that God wills all men to be saved but it's our freewill which determines if we believe or not. NO one can believe without God making it POSSIBLE. God chose, before we even existed, the ONLY category of those whom would be in Eternity...

Amazing to see a s...

Re: Can a born again Christian be unborn? OSAS

No matter how many Scriptures (https://www.godandscience.org/doctrine/security_believer.html - and this is a great start) one shows people obsessed with believing salvation can be lost, it never seems to satisfy them! So, instead of embracing what the Apostle Paul and others have stated, they'd rath...

Re: All Israel Will Be Saved

Yes, the OT believers had faith in the very same God (which includes the Father, Son and Holy Spirit) - it's just that we now have a more complete understanding of the Persons and attributes of God. Of course, in comparison to our future understandings of God, what WE know NOW is likely to pale in c...

Re: All Israel Will Be Saved

If I'm reading Ged's diagram correctly, this is about what my understandings are to do with Israel and Jews - that a large, BELIEVING remnant will eventually embrace Jesus as Messiah, before Jesus comes back. But the idea of some, concerning the Jews - "If you're a Jew, you're IN!" - simply cannot b...

Re: RTB: Serious Problems with Evolution

Paul, welcome to the forum! You'll find a range of beliefs on Darwinian / macro-evolution here. Old earth creationists like myself typically believe ALL life required a Creator God as the originator of all things. But the reality is, arguments over evolution aren't the most important questions that ...

Re: God and Science

Of course, there is a metaphysical force that keeps the basic laws of existence in balance. It doesn't matter what you call it: God, Allah, Energy. If it's easier for you to personalize, this is not a mistake. It matters VERY much what you call "it" - as one's eternal destination depends upon what ...

Dr. Michael Heiser Teaching TEMPORARY Eternal Life???!!!

I agree, Rick - as it appears he's latched onto the defenseless position of TEMPORARY eternal life (the ultimate oxymoron!) and/or that our only hope of "maintaining" our salvation lies within our own questionable ability to remain in faith through our own human efforts. And no one could ever have a...

Stu, are you starting to consider you could have been wrong or perhaps misled by the Flatties?

Re: Is Abortion Murder?

Jill, welcome to the forum and thanks for sharing! I totally agree, abortion IS murder!

I see your information page shows you are not a Christian, so I am curious as to your faith beliefs - and are they what drives you to be against abortion?
