I'm a born-again Christian, active member of the body of Christ, husband and father, and Bible teacher. I love to study Scripture, and firmly believe it is the only credible standard for truth.

Aside from my devotion to God, His people, and His word, I don't really have any loyalty to a particular doctrine or creed.

comment Did Jesus commit any sin pertaining to the Sabbath?
@gideonmarx Your reasoning doesn't make any sense... if that were true, why didn't Johanan ben Zakkai change the Hebrew Bible too? Why doesn't the LXX differ drastically from the MT? The post-AD70 changes made the law less stringent (because there was no more temple) -- not more stringent. If anything you should be arguing that what I said is true and then some. Also, how would you know "it was different" if you reject later testimony (like the Bible)? What you are presenting is "revisionist history" and is neither Christian nor scholarly.

comment Did Jesus commit any sin pertaining to the Sabbath?
@gideonmarx That's a bit like saying that we can never know what people in the OT believed because our oldest manuscripts of the TaNaKh are from 600 AD. The Mishnah teaches about the Oral Law, which Jesus frequently refuted according to the New Testament... the NT whose extant manuscripts were written centuries after Jesus' death, btw.

comment Clarifications on “Temporal Predestination”
You have some useful information in here, but I DV'd because it is way, way, way too long. When I got to the end I felt like it would have only taken you about a paragraph to summarize the parts of your post that actually answered my question. (Not trying to be mean, just trying to offer some constructive criticism.) If you can rework the post for more efficiency, I'll remove my DV (possibly up-vote.) Thanks.

comment Was the Trinity still a Trinity when Jesus died?
It could also be in regards to "Father, why have You forsaken Me?" which is interpreted by many to indicate a separation took place between the Father and the Son at that moment.

comment What is the Biblical definition of “prophecy”?
Also, it would be good if you could provide some sort of credible source for what you're claiming. (As it is now it just sounds like your personal opinion.)

comment What is the Biblical definition of “prophecy”?
Based on your answer, it sounds like all of Scripture could be considered "prophecy"... If that's what you're saying then it wouldn't "usually" be telling the future, right?
