Exalted Being

Exalted Being (13/17)

  1. Joy Robinson, the wife of JohnE308 passed away yesterday. John is on Facebook as "John E Robinson". Those that knew here were blessed. Please pray for comfort and direction for John.
  2. Some additional discussion regarding Jesus from Hebrew perspective:
  3. This could spark some interesting discussion: Comments on: Why bother to make Christianity more and more liberal/leftistwhy not just be true to ones self Suprised when talking to those outside thier church up bringing Presupposition of having "no traditions". Various comments on "inerrancy" The "Emergent Church" Learning from people we do not agree with History Revision Rascism Barbarians Offence versus adulthood Erasing history as a way of cheating
  4. This is a pretty amazing little piece of Scripture to meditate on. For me anyway.......
  5. I would say the 'cockroach in the muffin' so to speak is the point the Rabbi DID NOT address, which was the resurrection of Jesus itself, of which all 4 Gospels are all in agreement that it did happen. Anyone see that? The 4 gospels mention people who are there and things that were said. The Rabbi is presenting it as if each Gospel writer is saying that the only people mentioned were there. No one is saying that. The events following that were mentioned would be an issue if they excluded or somehow made impossible what the other gospel witnesses said, which they didnt. The accident witness example the Rabbi gives misses the same point that his dealing with the resurrction does....the fact that no one said the accident DID NOT happen. Same with the Gospel accounts. So how would that happen? The witnesses all agree the accident happened but not on the details, so the case would be thrown out and then say it never happened because they each mention certain things that are left out by others? The point is that they all agree that the resurrection happened. The main point of the Gospels is to inform of that, and the Rabbi is focusing on MAKING detail conflicts in order to toss the whole "muffin" . I would argue the cockroach is in the muffin he is serving.
  7. I would argue are that it is not a contract, but rather it is a suzrain covenant. A contract is between equals, there is no way to read the Bible and come away with the idea that God thinks we are
  8. Yeah, totally agree.....there is a lot in there. it turns out......there are "2 sides every coin." To continue the conversation......
