comment In Prophecy what does a beast represent?
Some would say that the beast would be literal, I believe. What tradition's answers, and what eschatalogical viewpoint are you looking for? Pre-Millenial, Post-Millenial, Amillenial?

comment How was Judas Iscariot, as the son of perdition, able to work miracles and cast out demons?
@SȱɳɨȼƮħeǶḝÐɠḝħȱɠ, not to mention... Judas... Pilate... The Pharisees... Sadducees... the crowds chanting "Crucify Him!" etc... all used to move Christ closer to crucifixion.

comment What is the significance of shouting “Hosanna” by the people of Jerusalem?
I think you may have answered your own question. I think they intended him to save them from Rome, specifically, and reestablish the sovereignty of the Jewish Nation. He didn't do that, and so they then saw no use for him.

comment Why are the wicked resurrected only to be destroyed and sent to the Lake of Fire?
I don't think we'll know why God designed the soul for the body. That's, I think, where our knowledge comes to an end. I think it's enough to know that hell is a place of torment, where the full penalty for transgression can never be repaid, as its a penalty against an infinite God.

I'm not sure if they'll be in the same body as what they lived in before they died on earth, or whether they'll be resurrected into new bodies, which will then be punished, but it does seem as though, biblically, they will suffer eternal hell with a physical body, yes. At least that's how I read it.

Made title more descriptive, and fixed some spelling / grammar.

comment Why was the New Testament Written in Greek?
@fredsbend Exactly. That's the point I was trying to get across in both my original comment, and in my follow up.

comment Why was the New Testament Written in Greek?
Good points, and of course, God isn't constrained by technology. I think it emphasises God's wisdom in that he put all the right people at all the right places at all the right times, all throughout history, distinctly for the purpose of preparing all things for Christ's coming. I agree 100% with your overall argument. God is no servant to history, instead history is God-ordained to serve His purposes. In other words, the fullness of time came, not with a God in waiting, but because He orchestrated it, including, but not limited to, technology & political and social climates.

comment Any philosphers arguing that the Christian worldview is the most rational?
Francis Schaeffer made exactly this argument in three of his books wrapped up currently under the title "Trilogy" amazon.com/Francis-Schaeffer-Trilogy-Three-Essential/dp/…

comment Why was the New Testament Written in Greek?
Many people believe that this is what the Bible means when it says in Galatians 4:4, that the fullness of time had come. The time and culture were properly set at that moment, and that moment only, to accept and spread the good news.

comment How does the life of Joseph (son of Jacob) foreshadow the life of Jesus the Messiah?
I thought about it, but Christ ruled after his resurrection, whereas Joseph ruled during his time away. I didn't think that was close enough of a parallel to merit mentioning.

comment What is a Christian's justification for a legal prohibition of homosexual marriage?
I think I can rent your answer. Even if I can't buy it. :) I suppose I don't see the government as a proper tool for the church to use for catechesis. That seems to be your viewpoint. I agree that legislation influences morality, but I don't think it's naive to assume convictions can thrive in a society contrary to those beliefs. Church history tells us that the church thrives under persecution and hardship. (Matthew 16:18) I would agree with your point about the naïveté of the secular person. Good discussion. If we have more, we should move it to chat.

comment What is a Christian's justification for a legal prohibition of homosexual marriage?
In short, I think that the problem started long before the gay marriage debate happened. I agree that the deeper understanding of marriage is important, and more people should view it as such, but the short-sighted view of marriage as being nothing more or less than 1 man/1 woman does leave something to be desired. If I want to be truly reflective on marriage, it would need to be only allowed to Christians, because only they can reflect the interactions of Christ and the Church clearly. "Christian" marriage should always be different than legal marriage from a practical standpoint.
