14 minutes 46 seconds ago Old Testament marriages by Mckinley

I have been trying to find a link or some information that is more indepth concerning the old testament regulations regarding men having more than one wife at one time. I understand after the fall man did that which was good in his own eyes and how concubines were taken in battle to support those who lost their husbands, but is their any information saying that this practice was a sin even though practiced?

Friday, May 22, 2015 3:04 PM Eschatology Question by Tom

I belong to a Church that I really appreciate for their high view of Scripture and how they want to grow each member of the local body into mature believers. They refuse to get sucked into the latest movements.
However, every once in a while it is clear from their view on Eschatology (historic Premillenial) that they are not fond of Amil position.
Last Wednesday's Bible study was a good example of this.
While my pastor asked us to turn to a specific Bible passage (sorry I can't remember the reference) he said this shows that the Amillennial view that claims there is no future for Isreal is wrong and it is clear from this and many other passages that there is indeed a future of Isreal.
While I am not sure how much I should say if anything to either my pastor or others concerning this, quite frankly I am not sure what to say.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Thanks
Tom

Tuesday, May 19, 2015 11:05 PM What is Marriage to Evangelical Millennials? by Tom



I just read an article at http://www.dennyburk.com/what-is-marriage-to-evangelical-millennials-firstthingsmag/ that made me think whether or not the findings of the evangelical college professor concerning evangelical students and their views on marriage is actually widespread view among evangelical students.
I am starting to believe that it is, mainly because I have left a few Churches because of liberal views of Scripture being accepted.

Pilgrim

Like you I enjoyed Dallas Willard's article called Reflections of Dawkins. In fact it is worth reading again.
I must say however, this is the first time that I have noticed you featuring an author such as Dallas Willard who has heretical leanings. giggle

Friday, May 1, 2015 4:15 AM Reflections on Dawkins' "The Blind watchmaker" by Pilgrim

This month's Article of the Month is a bit different, but I am confident that most will truly enjoy and benefit from it. The author, Dallas Willard, takes the views of Stephen Dawkins to task which are expressed in his book, The Blind Watchmaker. The premise is held by Dawkins and others in the so-called 'scientific world' that the present existence of all things which they admit has a semblance of reproducible order is not an indication that the origins of all things requires an outside intelligent designer, aka: God. They hold that this incredible order of nature could have come about through natural phenomena alone. Put simply, evolution can adequately explain life as we know it, so they claim. Dr. Willard strongly disagrees and in his article refutes Dawkins claims and shows that they are in fact anything but conclusions based on actual science.

I thoroughly enjoyed this one and I hope you will as well. grin

You can read it now by clicking here: Reflections on Dawkins' The Blind Watchmaker.

In His service and grace,
