Fri Oct 19, 2018 1:50 AM Very Interesting Eschatological Discussion [by Tom]

I found a 2009 discussion between a Postmillennial (Doug Wilson), a Historic Premillenialism (Jim Hamilton) and Amillennialism (Sam Storms); with John Piper as the moderator.
https://youtu.be/W75bzrvJtLs
The discussion is over 2 hours long. So, I would actually like to forward it until about ½ way. Sam Storm says something that actually made things heat up.
1:15:22 Storms “if Rev 20 teaches a pre-millennial view as you (Hamilton) articulated, I’d have to abandon biblical inerrancy”...
As I think about Revelation chapter 20, it seems that in most discussions on eschatology press on. Especially Historical Premils against Amils.
I was wondering if I could get a few opinions of this spirited discussion between Hamilton and Storms.
By the way, if it is possible please try and forget who these people are. Rather, think about how they represent their various positions. Even though I consider myself Amil; I have a few problems with all four people in certain areas.

Tue Oct 16, 2018 1:45 AM Agree or Disagree and Why? [by Tom]
Would you agree or disagree with the following?

Quote
The first Adam was only innocent, and so he could be corrupted.

But the second Adam, Jesus Christ, was divine, and so could not be corrupted, regardless of Him putting on flesh and blood.

There are some that may think that it was possible for Jesus Christ to sin, but this isn’t so.
The nature of man, flesh and bmlood, was governed by the divine nature of Christ.
Christ did not put on corrupted flesh. His flesh was not fashioned like ours is, but was fashioned in the womb of a woman by the Holy Spirit.

Some may say “Well, He was tried like us in all areas, and so why would He be tried if it weren’t possible for Him to sin?”

But does putting a 100% pure block of gold in a furnace mean that any percent of that block of gold can be found to be impure?
Of course not. A pure block of gold is tried only to show that it is pure, and the fact that it is tried does not mean it must have an impurity.

Christ was that pure gold, being tried by the same fiery temptations as us, but only able to come out pure. There was never any impurities in Christ that could be purged from Him.
All of His trials were only to display how glorious He is.
Ours are to display how glorious we aren’t, moving us to glory in the one who is glorious.

Just a small edit. This topic has been discussed before on the Highway; and I should have probably revealed that. However, I thought before I say more, I would give others a chance to chime in. By the way Pilgrim, I am in agreement with you on this topic.

Mon Oct 15, 2018 4:47 AM ADHD [by Tom]
Today during worship service, I sat behind a family whose teenage son (nearly 6’ tall) was disruptive. I could tell his parents were agitated and felt helpless; they even tried to discipline him. During the sermon, their son said loud enough for many to hear “this is so boring!”
After the service, I talked to his dad and told him I was praying for him and his family. He told me his son has ADHD and though it doesn’t excuse him, his mind doesn’t work normal. His dad told me that he appreciates my prayers.
I am assuming his parents are actively seeking solutions for their son and I do not want to make them feel unwelcome in Church. However, his actions made it very hard to concentrate on the sermon.
Does anyone reading this have any knowledge of ADHD and how one might help a family like this?
I am going to be looking to see if there is anything written by Dr. Jay Adams on the subject. But, I thought it might help to make this enquiry on The-Highway.
Thanks
Tom

Fri Oct 12, 2018 5:06 PM Quoting Scripture a Comfort? [by Tom]

A while ago I was with a group of Christians who were discussing the resent death of a friend's baby.
One of the men shared how someone who meant well quoted Romans 8:28 to the mother of the baby.
He said that he felt like punching the person for saying it.
As I thought of that, I am reminded of some time ago, when I was in hospital for 10 days. I was very sick and had no idea if I was going to live or die. One of the things I remember during that time was that very Scripture, Romans 8:28 and a few other verses I had committed to memory because I couldn't even read my Bible. That verse was an enormous comfort to me, as I contemplated on it's truth.
My question, seeing how everyone in that Christian group agreed with him that it was very inappropriate to quote Scripture to a mother in morning. Were they correct?

Wed Oct 10, 2018 6:44 PM Ever heard of Michael Heiser [by Susan]
Hello,
I have a good friend who has been reading a lot of online articles and listening to broadcasts by Dr. Michael Heiser. He wrote a book called The Unseen Realm which she's also reading.

He is a professor at Liberty University and Scholar-in-Residence for Logos Bible Software which a reformed pastor I know said is a good and helpful Bible Program.

I read a blog series by Dr. Heiser’s friend Ronn Johnson called the Bible’s Big Picture in on his blog. Dr. Heiser did not agree with everything his friend teaches but evidently agreed enough to let him post on his blog. Dr. Heiser later wrote his own thoughts on the atonement.

http://drmsh.com/bibles-big-story/ Ronn Johnson is a follower of NT Wright.

http://drmsh.com/random-thoughts-substitutionary-atonement/

I have found very few people online that will say anything bad about his teaching aside from James White and Ken Ham. Dr. Heiser is an “expert in Semitic Languages” so it is claimed that one cannot refute his teachings unless one has a Ph. D in his field of study.

His credentials: http://serveliterary.com/authors/dr-michael-s-heiser/

Your comments are welcome.
