If anyone wants to dish further about the pit of hell we're descending to in the US three days from now, there's a thread in the Lounge.

Stay sane, stay safe.

Re: Jesus from Outer Space

And Paul had only one bad heavenly entity, Satan, not a multitude of demons: 2 Co 4:4 "whose minds the god of this age [genitive] has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them." Paul never involved demons as ruler...

I am curious about this verse: Καὶ ὑμεῖς μιμηταὶ ἡμῶν ἐγενήθητε καὶ τοῦ κυρίου, δεξάμενοι τὸν λόγον ἐν θλίψει πολλῇ μετὰ χαρᾶς πνεύματος ἁγίου And you became imitators of us, and imitators of the Lord , accepting the Word in much affliction, with joy of the Holy Spirit. They accepted the Word. In mu...

Re: The Biblical God is not infinite

Many of my Christian friends are convinced God is a God of pure love and do not see the wrath at all, not even when it's literally in the scripture and this isn't really a problem to them in the least. They see God this way and that is all there is to it. That has been my experience too. But I thin...

Absolute wacko by the looks of it. KJV fundamentalist, holocaust denier, Obama hater, Alex Jones enthusiast, etc. etc.

Who has read the best commentaries on Mark knows very well, I think, that Mark is the gospel of the double meaning par excellence.
Which commentaries are you thinking of? Thanks

Re: Galatians 1 & Mark 1

It would make sense that Paul read Mark (even though this is not what is being proposed I think). Paul speaks in such supernatural terms that it is hard to believe he is referencing a historical source - a source which even he admits he never saw or witnessed. The only think that Paul could be an a...

Thanks for checking. He is mistaken, but I wanted to make sure he had not been misquoted.
You’re not going to give us a text?? So out of character, lol.
