Getting to Know You....

Thought maybe it might be nice to have a thread where people can post pics or links to personal pics.      (I had my 8th anniversary a few days back, and a new acquaintance asked me about it.    And I realized, I still had pics from a defunct Blog (Which is fortunate because I lost the ones I had on my hard drive that crashed a few months ago, and only have left a DVD that's buried somewhere in moving boxes)…See More

Let me preface the following by noting that I have not been politically active for many years.  In the giant spectrum of things I am probably "liberal" and not a denizen of the American Religious…Continue

Baptism in One Name Only?

Started by Frank P. Spinella Jr. in Theology (General). Last reply by Robert Atwood Jan 15. 25 Replies

Matthew's gospel concludes with a commission to baptize in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.  But if Acts is accurate, Peter wasted little time violating that commission (Acts…Continue

Whence Knowledge?

Started by Frank P. Spinella Jr. in Theology (General). Last reply by Robert Atwood Jan 4. 41 Replies

Reading Paul's invectives against the wisdom of the world (e.g., 1 Cor. 1:18-25, 1 Cor. 3:18-20), one could almost read him as encouraging Christians to abandon reason for blind faith, to ignore…Continue

The Toranto Blessing -- A Decade Later

First Thessalonians and the Wrath of God against the Jews

Started by Frank P. Spinella Jr. in Theology (General). Last reply by Robert Atwood Dec 7, 2014. 6 Replies

Since 1 Thess. 2:16 refers to God's wrath (ὀργὴ) against the Jews as having already come (ἔφθασεν), I hesitate to conclude that Paul was referring to a future event.  Given that his letter was…Continue

Salvation for the Gentiles: Why Such Slow Traction?

Started by Frank P. Spinella Jr. in Theology (General). Last reply by Robert Atwood Dec 5, 2014. 30 Replies

The notion that Christ died for the remission of Gentile as well as Jewish sins is generally presumed to have originated with Paul.  Before the gospels were written the doctrine of atonement was…Continue
