Re: Caught In Hail Storm

Perhaps God sent the hail to remind you to think about Jesus and what he has done for you. This is always a good thing to do even if that wasn't the purpose of the hail.

Promises delayed

The Israelites spent 400 years in Egypt. They were invited to settle in Egypt to escape the famine in their own land. At first they were honored guests but that status changed. Now there arose a new king over Egypt, who did not know Joseph. And he said to his people, “Behold, the people of Israel ar...

This is your last warning. Stop misrepresenting other believers who disagree with your YEC interpretation.

You've been warned in the past, and continue to bear false witness against your brothers in Christ.
Who have I misrepresented?

MAECs

Among those who believe that God created the earth there is disagreement as to how and when he did so. Some believe he created it in six literal days, just as the Bible says. They are known as young earth creationists or YECs. Others believe he created the earth gradually over millions of years and ...

Re: Trump Moving U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem!!!

God chose the Jews as the nation through whom he would bring salvation to the world and he promised to bless those who bless them. He chose Jerusalem to be the capital of his people. By moving the embassy to Jerusalem President Trump is aligning our country with God and enabling us to receive the bl...

A random arrow

1 Kings 22:1-40 describes the battle in which King Ahab of Israel lost his life. He asked Jehoshaphat, the king of Judah, to join him in taking Ramoth-gilead back from the Syrians. Jehoshaphat agreed to help but insisted that they ask God’s guidance first. Ahab called 400 prophets and asked whether ...

Christian counseling

If you have a problem and need a professional counselor you probably won’t have much trouble finding one unless you want a counselor who believes the Bible and uses that as the basis for his work. Most counselors base their work on secular beliefs. One organization that does offer Biblical counselin...

Re: Local flood and local fire?

In theophilus' defense, he doesn't take Genesis quite as literally and concretely when he believes the sun only became visible, but was already created. Why he feels the need to be inconsistent, and take yom literally and concretely, is puzzling. There is nothing inconsistent in my beliefs. The Bib...

Re: Local flood and local fire?

Another indicator in the text that the presence of an evening (end) and morning (beginning) does not imply 24 hours is the absence of an evening and a morning in day 7. What does the absence of an evening and morning for day 7 tell us? How long was day 7, since it had no evening and morning (Hebrew...

And yet, the Genesis 2 account is NOT the same, is it?

Re: Local flood and local fire?

So, according to your interpretation, each day is the same as we know a day today, the earth rotates on its axis, and in relation to the sun, each place on the earth has daylight and darkness. Tell me then, according to your interpretation, when was the sun created, before or after this point in Ge...

*shakes head* Where does it say that Adam was created on the sixth day in Genesis 2? It is found in Genesis 1, verses 26 and 27: Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.

Re: Local flood and local fire?

You are presuming that we know how long a day/yom within the context of the Genesis 1 creation account is. Which brings me to one of my favorite questions? How long is the day/yom in Genesis 2:4? The word day can have many meanings and it is the context of each usage that shows which meaning is int...
