Jonathan Edwards Question

6 hours ago Suggestions for possible competition by John_C
I belong to a private Christian forum group that is currently using Yuku as its forum platform. Apparently, Yuku is being bought out by Tapatalk, and the forum administrator has been disappointed in what is needed administratively in moving and managing the forum in Tapatalk, so the private forum might just close. Are forum software disappearing except those like The Highway which I assume Jeff has programmed without using any forum software? I wonder if there are still general forum software around that the private group could possibly migrate

IMO, Facebook and other known social media just pale over what a good discussion forum, like this, offers. And someone mentioned that Tapatalk was basically develop for mobile device usage, not necessarily laptops. Please do not tell me that the laptop will disappear in a few years.

Mon Jun 26, 2017 1:43 AM Jonathan Edwards Question by Tom
I have been doing a bit of study on eschatology, especially where it comes to the views of Reformed theologians such as Jonathan Edwards. It is no secret that Jonathan Edwards was Postmil in his eschatology. He actually wrote only one commentary on the Bible and that was on the book of Revelation.
I was researching this subject and came across an old thread on the subject and was attracted to something J_Edwards said, which can be found at:

Alford, Henry. The Revelation . Alf. London: Cambridge, 1884
Barnes, Albert. Revelation in Notes on the New Testament; Grand Rapids: Baker Book House, 1884–85
Calvin, John.
Clarke, Adam. Adam Clarke’s Commentary on the Holy Bible: Grand Rapids: Baker Book House, 1967
Edwards, Jonathan
Elliott, E.B. Horae Apocalypticae . 4 vols. Eng. tr. 3d ed. London: Seeley, Burnside, and Seeley, 1828
Gill, John. Commentary of the Whole Bible.
Henry, Matthew. Acts to Revelation, vol. 6 in Matthew Henry’s Commentary on the Whole Bible: Old Tappan, N.J.: Fleming H. Revell
Knox, John.
Ladd, George E. A Commentary on the Revelation of John . Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 1972. (Historical premillennial, some classify as more futurist, others as preterist-futurist! He is difficult to categorize)
Luther, Martin.
Newton, Sir Issac: The Prophecies of Daniel & the Aopcalypse. 1733.
Torrey, R. A. The Treasury of Scripture Knowledge: Old Tappan, NJ.: Fleming H. Revell (Historical premillennialist)
Spurgeon, C H is classified as a Historicist: Keep this in mind when reading his sermons on the Revelation
Wesley, John.
Whitefield, George

I was sharing this with a good friend of mine and this is the answer at got back.
How could Edwards be both a Historicist and Postmillennial?

Seeing this is not my area of specialty, I thought I would put out his question to the board.

Please note, I have done a little additional research and many of the sites I have gone through, have people like Edwards and Spurgeon as either Preterists, or Partial Preterists.

Mon Jun 26, 2017 12:13 AM Should a Muslim be able to hold office? by Tom
Here is a question I am struggling with.
I am hearing a lot of Christians saying that in the USA no Muslim should be allowed to hold political office.
Yet, is this in keeping with the constitution of the United States?

In case you don't know, there is a movement in the USA that believes Christians should not be allowed to hold office. I believe Senator Bernie Sanders would support the later.

What do you think about this issue?

Sun Jun 25, 2017 1:05 PM Levirate Marriage by Johan
Can anyone perhaps help me with what the meaning of the levirate marriage was (Deuteronomy 25:5 - 10). I've read somewhere that it was an ancient Middle-Eastern custom but then why was it taken up in Scripture?

Wed Jun 21, 2017 4:21 PM Peter Enns by AJ Castellitto
My pastor Lane Tipton was talking about how Enns, who I had never heard of, almost took down Westminster....he also talked about the danger of Seminaries in a broader general sense .... In the desire of many to make them appeal to potential candidates. And the danger of compromising the true mission ...... Any thoughts?
