the Father revealed things to him.
if you want i would like to discuss further but am heading to bed.

You have correctly analyzed his hermeneutical problems, and your rebuttals have been perfectly clear. I have gone round & round with him for years& cannot get past his literalism nor his hatred of Calvinism.
I compose longer posts in Word or plain text editors and just manually add the BB Codes. Well, not manually, as I use some macro like software that I can define simple shortcuts that expand to the formatting codes.
Adolf von Harnack, for example, wrote a book translated into English as What Is Christianity? Harnack argued that the essence of Christianity is found in two principles, the universal fatherhood of God and the universal brotherhood of man. Ironically, those two principles are actually foreign to Christianity. God is not the father of everybody, except as their Creator. When the Scriptures speak of God's fatherhood, they describe a filial relationship that exists only between God and his redeemed children. Only those who are in Christ have the privilege of addressing God as Father … it is so insidious when people talk about the universal fatherhood of God. It is an extraordinary privilege that we [Christians] can address the Creator of heaven and earth in terms of filial and personal intimacy … The Bible speaks of a universal neighborhood, not a universal brotherhood. That is, every person is my neighbor, but only fellow Christians are the adopted children of God.
