Apologetics / Re: The Love of Many Shall Wax Cold
« Last post by George on Today at 08:18:35 AM »
None of this is any proof to you because like so many Premillennarians/Dispensationalists you have your eyes on the world instead of the prize.

Nonsense, I have my eyes in the bible and that's how I know God still loves the people of Israel, and Jerusalem was destroyed in 70 ad, and love is growing cold in the world. How else would you explain the hatred of Trump, the persecution of Israel, the homosexuals in the media and your attacks on the Dispensational brethren? It's sure not love.

 :bump: How else?

And all the brain dead alleged Christians who voted for him have no one to blame but themselves for whatever happens. Stupidity cannot be placed at anyone else's doorstep but those who are stupid. A person's actions make him both responsible and heir of the consequences.

Sounds like sour grapes to me.  :laugh: :smileyBounce: :laugh: :smileyBounce: :laugh:

Eschatology / Re: This Generation Shall Not Pass Until All be Fulfilled

Well, it's an oldie at least.  :(  He denies that this spoke of 70 ad which is not good and not acceptable.

The word generation is used in many different ways, and people don't like to accept that if they have an agenda. I would suggest reading this article on the word generation.



 Wow! This should be required reading in every church.  &TY

Well now I see why your timing is all off on the covenants, and on 70 AD. Do the match? OK, if you insist!

14 Generations X3 = 42 and 42 X 40 years each = 1680 years from Christ to Abraham

That's absurd! It's been at least 2000 years by everyone's account, and probably a lot more.


I must say, I have learned so much from these threads. From my math, a generation cannot possibly be 40 years, at least not from reading the biblical record. Too many inconsistencies all throughout the Bible. So this is totally incorrect math and totally incorrect intrpretation of this.

So what do you believe scripture teaches concerning the length of a generation? Nothing?

The scriptures teach that the length of a generation can be any number of years. You'd know that if you only read the bible and let it interpret itself instead of trying to push Preterism. The children of Israel were prophecied to be in Egypt 4 generations. And they were. Are you telling us they were there 160 years when God plainly said they were there 430 years? You see the people here can count. Does that sound like 40 years a generation to you?

I see a lot of unsound interpretation in his understanding, because it is not even close from the biblical narrative that a generation cannot possibly be 40 years. And if not, then his whole conclusion based upon that math fails.  I have never really understood why people who are clearly proven wrong, cling to their beliefs anyway? How is that possible?

Theology / Re: Do You Call Yourself A Calvinist?

I just read this thread again. Calvinists!! But you gotta love the devotion to their tradition, even though it's misplaced.

>>>
They didn't have to argue it, everyone knows it has nothing to do with John Calvin. That's just silly.
<<<

Actually, what is truly silly is arguing that a doctrine named after John Calvin, actually has nothing whatsoever to do with John Calvin. Now that's truly silly. If it has nothing to do with Calvin, as you propose, why is it called Calvin-ism? It's a misnomer, isn't it?

Yup!  :Goodpoint:

The latest poll says that 75 to 80 percent of "Republicans" still support Trump and think he's doing a good job.  :Say_what:

Why are you surprised? Have you been listening to some of the unchristian and racist comments in this forum by alleged stable minded Christians about how if we stand against Trump's dumb policies we're all liberals or Democrats, and it's the Muslims, Africans and Mexicans that are the big problems, and the media news is all fake? To misquote a famous actor, "They can't handle the truth!"  Dare I say that it's the militant religious right wing that is fueling the Republican party right now and they are Delusional! They can't fix the problems, they only make them worse. For example, instead of fixing the Affordable Care act, they tear it up and leave the old, the poor and widows to fend for themselves. They pee on you and tell you no, it's just raining, it's good for the flowers.

Now that's scary! How could anyone in their right mind have understood what's going on and still think he is doing a good job?

It's called the mob mentality. Us against them. It's like when a whole city gets in an uproar over a crime and goes out as a mob and lynches someone without regard for a trial or consideration if he really did what he was accused of. Nothing matters to a mob except it's us against them. Or the short version, it's Stupidity! Then they want to take money we don't even have, give it to billionaires in tax breaks, reduce our coast guard and cut out the people who look out for our food, air and water safety. Thus the title, Trump's Thoughtless, Stupid and Dangerous Policies. Yes, that's scary, and that is the brand new Republican party, evidently.
