The following post was first on the Jerusalem thread in the Political forum. Seeing that it went unanswered (and that the subject matter fits better here) I thought it best to repeat it in this forum. Lest somehow this is considered a "zombie" thread I am also adding to this. I really do want answers to this.
The "soon", "the time is at hand", and "shortly" references in Revelation are often dismissed by futurists as "soon in God's time", that is "a day is as a thousand years". But this is...
There are apparently two types of people discussed below. Please explain, in your response, who are the people described in this text? Who are those who love the darkness, because their deeds are evil, and who are those who do what is true and come to the light so that their deeds may be clearly seen as being carried out by God?
 And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil....
IN another Thread JonC stated "the average member does not care about the SBC except in giving to missions".
So how much emphasis should a church put on the fellowship of the SBC (or any other Baptist denomination)
Granted, one of the major points is the missions program - but should we encourage our members to attend the local association, State and even national meetings,
Should we have classes on the history of the SBC
Open for discussion.

Almost all Arminian argument includes at least one of these improperly exegeted texts.
1) Matthew 23:37 “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to it! How often would I have gathered your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you would not! (ESV)”
2) 1 Timothy 2:4 "who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. (ESV)
3) 2 Peter 3:9 "The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some...
Often here on the BB, people suggest that an uneducated debater or theologian can be just as effective as an educated one. The idea is that we all have the same Holy Spirit, so education isn't that helpful for Bible interpretation. Well, yes and no.
The answer to the idea that theological education doesn't help much is the Biblical concept of what I call a trilogy of the mind: knowledge, understanding, wisdom. Now that term is not in Scripture, but the concept is there quite often, with...
It was stunning to many people that the U.S. Supreme Court even took up the case of Jack Phillips, the owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop in Lakewood, Colorado, who refused, on religious grounds claiming a violation of First Amendment rights to make a cake for gay couple, Dave Mullins and Charlie Craig, who came in to buy a wedding cake... The following link below tells the whole story... Thoughts?... Brother Glen

It might be helpful to offer 5 or 6 things that you were no longer confident were the teaching of scripture.
Most of us were at first exposed to the Dispensational Premill scheme.
List some examples,and offer your thoughts, here is one example;
in the supposed earthly 1000 yr Kingdom..... were you ever comfortable with the idea.....of The Glorified Lord Jesus Christ on earth with unsaved sinners who eventually rise up in rebellion against God himself as if they could do any such thing?...
The word 'for' appears rather a lot in the New Testament, well over 1,000 times in the KJV and equally often, I think in many other versions.
I was interested to discover that there are 21 Greek words which the KJV translates as 'for.' Just in case anyone is interested, they are:
dia (a few times with the genitive, several times with the accusative)
epi (sometimes with the accusative, sometimes with the dative)
