Re: How is the Virus Affecting You?

Learned yesterday that a nephew has just tested positive. Was running a very high fever, but is somewhat better now.

Re: Modalism

Sorry to bring this up at such a late date, but I have mostly not been active in this form for the past year (as should be obvious).

Ohio: Your assertion that the verse says "Spirit" rather than...

Re: A Practical Exercise in Spotting what is and isn't Acceptable Comment

Mentioning a focus on Jesus Christ is not the same as focusing on Jesus Christ. Not saying that is not what was meant, but just noting that what was said was not what should be meant.

For example,...

Re: Your thoughts on Near Death Experiences and testimonies

But since we are talking about faith and not logical, verifiable certainty, the true do not prove anything. At best, they are comfort to the one who got the vision, or possibly to a few close to that...

Re: Politics and the Church

Snopes, factcheck.org, Reuters, politifact.com, misbar.com, and more.

Seems that Reuters gave a lot of specific references to unnamed sources from times before Tim Allen's name was ever attributed...

Re: Coronavirus Powergrab?

Any idea what TV show I would be looking for?

And I assume that you mean the fake HydroxyChloroquine cure.

Re: Coronavirus Powergrab?

Terry,

While it is true that ActBlue is a contribution clearinghouse for Democratic campaigns, it is not a slush fund where anything going in simply goes to Democratic things wherever they want it...

Re: STUDY: White Police Officers NOT more likely to Kill Minorities

Well it is almost certain that the big bad boogeyman is on a side because almost everyone has moved to one pole or the other. There is almost no longer a middle ground in American society. And it is...

Re: STUDY: White Police Officers NOT more likely to Kill Minorities

First, everything must be looked at as both a whole and on a case-by-case basis. To only consider on a case-by-case basis ignores the total and attempts to stratify the whole in such a manner as to...

Re: What is the Church really?

The church is referred to in various places as the body of Christ, the assembly (paraphrased), the pillar and ground of the truth, and eventually, the bride of Christ (among other things). There is...

Re: How is the Virus Affecting You?

The virus has been "with us" for these few months now and does not seem to be going away. Someone elsewhere made mention of the start of a 2nd wave. But that is premature. This is still the first...

Re: Coronavirus Powergrab?

That's no riddle. It's pandemic. And now that another month has gone by and it has not just "gone away" like the Orange One predicted, but has gotten much worse. What else can I say?

Re: Bone of My Bones & Flesh of My Flesh

Re: Coronavirus Powergrab?

Not necessarily legit. Just human rather than bots. They have at least one reason to reopen the country but have nothing to say about any reason to not reopen the country. They only see economics....

Re: Modalism

The theological problem is not that they are accused of modalism, but that they do espouse a form of modalism.

Yet at the same time they declare that the three are co-eternal and co-equal.

And...

Re: Christ is the Body, "the Body-Christ"

I think you misunderstood what I was saying. The two passages might have a connection, but that connection does not make what they are saying the same thing.

Related? Maybe or even probably.

I went to public schools as well. And I had to learn some things much later in life.

One short comment: For the verses that mention something (as opposed to a feeling, etc.) that is called...

I never said that it was simply a turn of phrase. It has meaning or it wouldn't have been said. But whether it is simply the same as other declarations is not clear. Surely there is some...
