Re: As A People The US has Gone Insane

Kaufmannphillips, Long time no hear! Do you believes the borders of the US should be open with no restriction? Why or why not? You wrote: And if she had crossed the border without papers, both she and the baby could have been shipped back to the Northern Triangle to be dismembered. Good example of f...

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

Hi Paidion, You may find the following of interest: The question is a bit simplistic. The answer is that all occurrences of θεός in Heb. 1:8–9 are in fact nominative. Anyone who can read a declension table can tell you that. But, that isn’t actually the real question, which is, “Are all occurrences ...

Hi Paidion,

You wrote:
Abortionists argue that the fetus is not a human being.
So how does in make sense to charge the woman who used meth with murder? National schizophrenia comes to mind.

To my mind Roe v. Wade is similar to the infamous Dred Scott decision by the Supreme Court.

As A People The US has Gone Insane

Today I heard the prayer by representative Cleaver at the US House of Representatives close with "Amen and Awomen' after they had changed from he or she to "them", among other gender things. The politically correct crowd has gone completely nuts! Representative Cleaver, who uttered the words, showed...

Re: Our “spirits”?

Hi Paidion,

Do you believe that soul, spirit, physical body are inseparable? Did those who appeared with Jesus at the transfiguration then go back to their graves or were they resurrected for the event?

Re: Did Jesus Command His Apostles to Kill?

Hi Paidion, I don't think you can consider verse 27 apart from the parable that precedes it. Note verse 14: 14. But his citizens hated him and sent a delegation after him, saying, ‘We do not want this man to reign over us.’ I think the reference in verse 27 is to either the judgement of 70AD or the ...

I think Paul is saying that he would rather be absent from this present mortal body, and present with the Lord in the future immortal resurrected body that he will receive when Jesus returns and raises the dead.

Re: Newcomb's Paradox and Time

Paidion, Consider two Greek words for time, chronos and kairos. Theologian Paul Tillich wrote that kairos describes: "that feeling that the time is ripe, prepared, mature." It is a Greek word which, again, witnesses to the richness of the Greek language and the poverty of modern languages in compari...

Re: Newcomb's Paradox and Time

Darin,

Thanks for posting. I thought this was very pertinent; I had never thought of foreknowledge and free will in this way:
As Cargile puts it, "The player is free-he just cannot escape being 'seen' making his free choice."
