Re: The Vision of Peter in Acts 10:9-16

I have "no agendas or pet doctrines to support" (indeed I ate pork this week but would easily give it up if obliged to) but in Isaiah 66 v 17 today I read: Those who consecrate and purify themselves to go into the gardens, following one who is among those who eat the flesh of pigs, rats and other un...

Prayers please

I`d be thankful if you would add us to your prayers briefly for tomorrow. I`ve suddenly come over with an infection in my neck where my titanium plate is. Antibiotics will likely not clear it so an operation tomorrow has been proposed as most likely. But it`s my wife who is my concern. She has ovari...

Re: The Vision of Peter in Acts 10:9-16

Dwight, why do you begin each paragraph with "Dwight speaking"? I don`t know but maybe you set Steve on edge even before getting to the "meat" of what you wanted to say (sorry for the pun :D )

With your name at the head of the post, we know it`s you speaking.

Re: The last will be first. How do you see it?

Hi Steve In Matthew 20 where Jesus says this, there is indeed a succession of time at work, implying that he could, at least in part, have been talking about the Jews and Gentiles there. But he also says the same or similar in Mark 10 in the passage about the rich young man. There he appears to be t...

The last will be first. How do you see it?

I drive a 10-seater bus for handicapped children, some with "mere" learning difficulties (but on initial glance normal kids), others quite clearly visibly so. I have one who is especially pitiful to look at and my heart goes out to her - and to her mum to be honest. Also she cannot speak. She is now...

Re: "all religions have historically treated women like this

both good answers, thank you. I have had one or two FB ding dongs with this man before. I sometimes post David Wood videos to my own page and it really winds him up, though as you say his antipathy began earlier, perhaps with a past experience of the relative behaviour of certain Christians and Musl...

"all religions have historically treated women like this"

Some of my non-Christian FB "friends" from the UK use such atrocities as occurred this week in Manchester as a platform to air their opinions about "all religions". Here`s one statement: "All religions have historically tried to subjugate women; all religions obviously led by insecure men!!" It`s of...

Re: Eternal conscious torment revisited

Hi TK

Like I said I`m not hitting on PW. I`ve listened to him and others like him (Tim Conway for example) for hours. But this doctrine...
