Re: As A People The US has Gone Insane

It may not even matter. My sister in law a proud socialist once said that the fetus may indeed be a human being but as long as it is in the women's body she has a right to kill it. Using similar reasoning, one could affirm that as long as children are in their parents care, their parents have the r...

Re: Did the writer to the Hebrews use the nominative case as a vocative?

We should note that the author explicitly states that verse 8 is said “to the Son” (πρὸς τὸν υἱόν). In v. 8, both «ὁ θρόνος σου» and «ὁ θεός» are declined in the nominative case, which, unless they are in apposition, is nonsensiboth could not be the subject of the sentence. It is highly improbable ...

Re: Did the writer to the Hebrews use the nominative case as a vocative?

I haven't claimed to be a "higher authority" than anyone else. It's just plain Greek. Why should I believe a ridiculous aberration of plain Greek grammar? If the nominative case can be used as a vocative, one would expect to find more than one instance of such a use. Would you accept the "English gr...

By the authority of Hellenistic Greek grammar, which I spent a year studying at the Winnipeg Bible Institute, and an additional 3 years of studying at the University of Manitoba, where I received a BSc degree.

Re: Paul's great omission

The Begetting (or Generation) of the Son of God Before All Ages During my youth, I thought Jesus being the “only-begotten Son of God” referred to his having been begotten in the womb of Mary. But when I began reading second-century Christian writers in my early twenties, I realized that they taught...

Re: Paul's great omission

True. Paul did not teach that Jesus is God or part of a "Trinity". However, throughout the New Testament Jesus is identified as "The Son of God." In the beginning, God begat a Son—another Being like Himself. The son of a human being is human as is his father, and thus is a human being himself. Likew...

I wonder why women's periods are called menstrual periods rather that womenstrual periods.

Re: As A People The US has Gone Insane

Makes no sense at all. Neither does the assertion that the fetus is not a human being. For it is human, and it is a being. It follows that it is a human being. The abortionist might be convinced by that reasoning that it is a human being, but he would then affirm that it is not a "person" until it h...

Re: As A People The US has Gone Insane

"Murder" is the deliberate unnecessary killing of a human being. Abortionists argue that the fetus is not a human being.

Re: Did Jesus Command His Apostles to Kill?

Okay, I can see your point, Homer and Steve, if you consider these words as part of Jesus' parable.
I had taken it as Jesus' words to His disciples subsequent to the parable, concerning the attitude of certain people who would "not have this man (Jesus) to rule over us."
