Hi Paidion,
I just came across this thread and it's sad to hear you say you're leaving. This forum has been very valuable to me over the years and you have been a big part of the reason.

I don't visit as often as I used to (not sure if you remember, but I was also compared to Joseph Smith in one of the threads), but I still pop in from time to time because I have a lot of respect for several of the people who post on this forum.

If you do leave, I completely understand why, but you will be missed by some of us.

Thank you, psimmond. A few years ago I began writing a book called "The Supreme Sacrifice of Jesus Christ." I never finished writing the book. I thought I had posted the first three chapters on the old forum, but in checking I see that I posted only Chapter 1 and Chapter3. If you are interested in reading these chapters, the links are below:

Chapter 1

Chapter 3
http://www.wvss.com/forumc/viewtopic.php?t=793&sid=69555104baa1d61de17e578b8dee55e1

If you read these chapters, and would be interested in Chapter 2, just PM me, and I'll make it available to you.

Sincerely,
Paidion

Paidion, thanks for the links.
The first chapter made me think of NT Wright and NPP (with a Church of Christ baptismal view). I think the NPP was a long overdue corrective and has dealt a blow to the doctrine of imputation. (Unfortunately, the doctrine of imputation is still quite strong in the Protestant church.)

I think the third chapter makes a good point about ANE influences on early worship.

Sorry psimmond (Peter isn't it?) but I am unfamiliar with the acronyms NPP and ANE as you used them in your post above.

At the slight risk of putting my foot in my mouth...

NPP- New Perspective on Paul

ANE- Ancient Near East

Thanks, jasonmodar. That's what I had in mind.

Sorry for the confusion.
