Re: From legalism to grace. Anyone read this book

No. All religion has moral law of some kind. Even the most antinomian liberalised heresies have SOME kind of moral law they demand obedience to.

Re: From legalism to grace. Anyone read this book

Re: One In The Greek

Re: perspective

I think you aren't understanding me.

I didnt say there is no Milky Way. I do not agree that is what we are told it is. Those "scientific discoveries" include manmade global warming and evolution.

Re: The Present reign of Jesus Christ

1. The quote in the original post is apparently from an historicist amillennial view. I am more of an historicist premillennial. So I don"'t necessarily agree the Rev 20 binding of satan is an...

Re: One In The Greek

He misunderstood Philippians 2, it has nothing to do with Jesus "before the incarnation". A very common error, and an example of numerous catholic, trinitarian traditions still holding people's minds...

Is there really a moon? Stars? Really?

I'm saying they are real, but are not what Bill Nye says they are.

Re: The Present reign of Jesus Christ

The binding of satan in Revelation 20 is a specific event occurring immediately after the destruction of the two beasts. It is not the same binding which Jesus enforced during His earthly ministry....

Re: "Churches arm, train congregants"

God is not a statue, carved in stone. He is open to our prayers. He responds to us, like a Father.

Two days ago I was reading the kids a bed time story (Herodotus' Histories, Book I) and we read his account of Pisistratus and "the most ridiculous event in all history".

What's wrong with state-created entities, like 501(c)3 corporations masquerading as non profit churches practicing many of the rites of Baal, having armed security?
