      What are the parameters for this thread? Can we interact with the statement of faith (pro/con)? What is the line between discussion/debate and 'arguing'?

      What can we talk about relevant to the thread without infractions?
      Know God and make Him known! (YWAM)

      They said: "Where is the God of Elijah?"
      I say: "Where are the Elijahs of God?" (Ravenhill "Why Revival Tarries")

      Rev. 1:17, 18; Jer. 9:23, 24

                his deciples said unto him, Lo speakest no proverb.
                Now are we sure that thou knowest all things,
                and needest not that man should ask thee by this
                We believe that thou camest forth from god.
                Jesus answered them, Do ye NOW believe?
                Other interesting verses He whom god rose from the dead man have taken and hung on a tree,
                Though we preach God rose christ from the dead we are found to be false witness and our preaching is vain,
                Dont tell anyone of the vison untill the son of man be risen from the dead AGAIN ,
                Matthew 17:9 As they were coming down from the mountain, Jesus commanded them, saying, "Tell the vision to no one until the Son of Man has risen from the dead."

                    That he will die for our sins? Really? You can read Matthew 27, or skip straight to Psalm 22.

                      I like it too and I agree with it!
                      Jer 23:5 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD[YHVH], that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.

                          I had read it when I first came here, but had forgotten about it.
                          Thanks, Inzl Kett, for digging it up!

                            ## Bad idea. Bits of it are "difficult", like the creation in six days: because another understanding of the chapter is that the days are not there to say how long the work of creation took, but that they are a literary device of the Priestly author to emphasise the importance of the Sabbath. They are not a diary, but a piece of theology.

                            The second theory isn't disbelief in what Genesis 1 says as Scripture - it's still belief in what that part of Scripture is saying; it is belief with a content different from the "obvious" meaning of the content of Gen.1

                            One can therefore be Christian, & not accept everything in the TOL


                            Note to Mod: if the above or any of it counts as argument (for the purposes of: the site ? the thread ? whatever-it-may-be): please edit/delete/take other action, as per post 151. Thank you.

                              Question - does "Christian" mean "Evangelical Christian" ? The TOL does not exclude those who are not Evangelicals; but the proposal made by the OP might have that effect For those who are not Evangelicals, this question is not exactly idle.

                                Can you explain how that would work? You know, the evening and the morning were the first day? And Exodus 20 stating explicitly the earth was made in six days, so you shall work six days and then rest? Loop that 7th day rest with how the day isn't a day for us.
