How can Christian's be deceived today, like the Jews were in Jesus time

I have some questions begging for comments and thoughts from inquisitive and self-analyzing minds. So to setup the argument or scenario: The Hebrews/Jews had their own preconceptions of what the Messiah would be like. And in many respects they were both wrong and surprised by Jesus. They had become ...

Re: General Question about various beliefs held by various people

I totally understand if you are not going to post anymore on this thread. I probably will continue to post on this thread going forward as I read bits of text and, yes, even "pray" through some things. More of a record for myself. Because some serious accusations against my "preferred and emotionall...

Re: General Question about various beliefs held by various people

Yes, you are probably right. And its because this topic makes me extremely frustrated and angry. Its also because DUE to the fact that so many believers believe these "heretical or wrong" beliefs IMO, it has indirectly caused me MUCH unnecessary suffering and problems when I came to believe. My open...

Re: General Question about various beliefs held by various people

According to the common evolutionary theorizings, humans would have originated from a small primitive human population of more than 2. I mean, according to how they think evolution happens, relatively slowly apes would appear closer and closer to ancient human ancestors. So 2 originals would most li...

Re: General Question about various beliefs held by various people

Jesus openly used metaphors, and his disciples did not always understand what he meant. BUT.... there was ALWAYS a true interpretation and meaning which was intended by the original author to be understood a certain way. “This He said, and after that He said to them, “Our friend Lazarus has fallen a...

Re: General Question about various beliefs held by various people

I mean its a good funny point, honestly. I like that. :lol: But its really not comparable. God created the universe. He knows everything that can be known. "Forgetting" as in.... forgetting Adam's sin of eating from the tree of knowledge... like that's a historical fact. But its a sin... so he "forg...

Re: General Question about various beliefs held by various people

Homer said: njd83, Does Boyd have anything to say about the accuracy of prophets? How does the following fit with open theism: Deuteronomy 18:20-22 New American Standard Bible 20 But the prophet who speaks a word presumptuously in My name, a word which I have not commanded him to speak, or which he ...

Re: General Question about various beliefs held by various people

You took God forgetting as non-literal; you already allow for metaphor. Remind me please. Oh yeah, forgetting sins. ““They will not teach again, each man his neighbor and each man his brother, saying, ‘Know the LORD,’ for they will all know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them,” decla...

Re: General Question about various beliefs held by various people

I just read the definition of Open Theism, and it makes sense to me. I did not initially understand what Dizerner brought up about Contingency vs Necessity, because I am not schooled in philosophy, just 2 classes: Intro Logic and Existentialism. I have just read up a bit about Contingency VS Necessi...

Re: General Question about various beliefs held by various people

Sorry for walls of text. You quoted a section of Boyd's book that had a contextual section right before it. Here is the section right before the quote: In the same way that God predestined and foreknew the death of Jesus without predestining or foreknowing which individuals would condemn him, Ch 1 B...
