    The distortion is of the theology of the passage.

    A leading theme of the theology of the NT is, that God is King. So central is this, that the Good News Jesus preached is, the Good News of the...

    ISTM that the testimony of alleged witnesses has a right to be heard and believed, until and unless there are solid reasons to suspect it.

    The question is not whether testimony by past writers is...

    I’ve had epilepsy all my life, but I still enjoyed the fairly frequent pint of beer when I was at university. Since then I have not had any beer at all and that was quite a long time ago. OTOH I...

    That sounds like the kind of book that is very badly needed today.

    Well, Isis and Horus and Seb, actually. “Seb” is a misreading of “Geb”, a correction not made until roughly 1915 (AFAIK). Set the brother/murderer of Osiris is not mentioned by Hislop by name -...

    It still sells - and has been translated into German, French, Spanish, and (most recently ?) Russian.

    None of which stops it being…not exactly good scholarship. Thanks to AH, a lot of people have...

    There is a discussion of this and other “sea-monster”-passages in the OT in Alexander Heidel’s (ageing but still useful) translation of the Enuma Eliš. The dragon is mentioned here:...

    That is just - infantile. To regard anything like that as evidence for Christianity, would be foolish in the extreme. What is really depressing, is that any thinking person could seriously suppose...

    People cannot make videotapes of abstractions. So why should they be capable of videotaping God ? They cannot videotape everything they admit is real in the universe - why must the Creator be capable...

    Both sets of texts are true, but at different “levels”. The OP is correct - and so are these texts. They are complimentary, not contradictory.
    God always does all His Will - without exception. In...

    I would agree with that. Perhaps knowing Christ is like being married - the experience can be had, and known about; but it is too irreducibly personal & dialogical & inward to be replicated for...

    I don’t visualise God at all (which is in no way a claim to be More Spiritual Than Thou !). Am I being mean to quibble with your use of the word “localised” ?

    OTOH, the Bible does not shy away...

    Sounds like a Novus Ordo Mass - which is somewhat notorious for the amount of standing and sitting it involves. The 1962 Mass involves much less gymnastics. After the end of the homily/sermon in...

    It may be worth looking at the OT background of the verse as well. And is the verse a saying of Jesus, or a comment of the Evangelist ?

    St Paul, like other NT writers, seems to have a Christology of “economic” subordinationism. This is suggested by his words in 1 Corinthians 15:

    “24Then the end will come, when He hands over the...

    STM mossy is right on this, and that the Pope is missing the point of those words pretty badly :( The change, alters the theology of the LP significantly, and therefore changes the theology of St...

    Short answer: God so willed. Though whether the Incarnation was intended anyway, regardless of sin, is another question.

    It is coherent, if people are equal in some ways, but not in others. That people are equal and unequal in different ways seems undeniable and self-evident. For instance: all people are equal in being...

    There is no “objective”, quantifiable test of these things, empirically available to all comers. Communion with God, however genuine, *cannot* be tested in the way one can test for the presence of an...

    This sounds like a recipe for Philistinism. And the options suggested, leave out such humane courses as the Classics. The textual criticism of Virgil leaves very little room for the politicisation of...

    The advantage BB has over IB is that:

    1. Adult baptism is the only kind with clear NT support - the defence of IB that argues from the mention of the Philippian gaoler’s “household” in Acts 16, is...
