Re: Esther's Controversy

Hi FD & friends First off, I have certainly asked the same questions about Esther and SoS. I didn't see anything in your original post that suggested you had a problem with them btw, at least not beyond the natural questions that are raised from them being unusual in not mentioning YHWH directly. Do...

This topic made me think, how a young earther explain one hour of two thousand years?
IF I were a young earther (and I'm not) I might draw attention to Jesus' first recorded miracle.

Re: Vatican - Green Pass

I'm pretty certain that the entry fee to a Bethel fairyland vacation is way higher in the long term.

I've previously visited St Peters and Vatican city, so I guess that's as close as I'll get to the other mother ship.

It was interesting.

Re: Vatican - Green Pass

Hi Marina

They would be wise to do so.

This is a separate issue to whether the "Bethel Visits" vs "Disneyland" is an appropriate form of pressure on parents, but if they are going down that road then they should take appropriate health precautions.

My 2c as always,

Re: What means "Stumble" in the Bible?

Hi FD

I feel I might have accidentally dug myself a hole.

I'd feel awful if you thought your post wasn't worthy for some reason. It was very interesting and on point. Please don't hesitate to share your fine thoughts.

Best,
Apollos

Re: What means "Stumble" in the Bible?

Hi FD

I think you were very clear.

I was taking your thought and running with it a bit, but from the perspective of the individual rather than an organization.

From the perspective of how an organization/society can misuse this, I very much agree.

Best,
Apollos

Re: What means "Stumble" in the Bible?

Hi FD I guess the safest route is to do one's best not to stumble anyone. I agree with you that an impression that early Christians were in some constant fear about this would be off. But maybe timing is important in this case. At the time that Jesus spoke the words to his immediate audience (and ul...

Re: 8 Persons in One GOD ?

This is what I've lead to believe trinitarians believe? Multiple people being in one body, or one person consisting of multipe personas (which is modalism I think) or several components of a single literal body/being with their own sentience. Hi PoJ Yes, I think you're describing modalism. That wou...

Re: 8 Persons in One GOD ?

Likewise Apollos, through this argumentation I'd say you're claiming the GB is saying the Slave is "one literal body" or "a conjoined individual", but that is not the case. Hi PoJ I think you'll see I'm not claiming anything other than a potential contradiction. Nothing to argue about here. As such...
