comment What is the basis of the argument that asserts that Open Theism is heretical?
I do thank Affable Greek for his thoughtful comment. It does make me wonder how God could have created anything if He did not know, in advance (logically - not temporally) what it would look like. Anyway, much obliged.

comment What evidence is there that the New Testament was originally written in Aramaic?
Thanks Affable Greek. But there is a paradox here. It is hard to produce evidence when the contention is that there is no evidence.

comment Do Rob Bell and Tullian Tchividjian represent sides of any prior Christian controversy?
Bell says that the word aion has two meanings in Greek but that it does not mean "forever" as we think of forever. But the most authoritative lexicon is Bauer. Bauer shows aion to mean: 1. very long time, eternity. 2.a segment of time or age. 3. the world. 4. the Aeon as a person. He defines aionios as: 1. without beginning. 2. without beginning or end. 3. without end. We should note that the last meaning can include the idea of eternal quality. This means eternity or time without end. So despite Bell this is a biblical concept.

I could have weasel worded it, I suppose. Maybe I should have. But the bottom line would be the same. He is simply guilty of poor workmanship, which offends me.
