The Only Begotten Son
by Michael Marlowe
1) "I will argue that the rendering “one and only” is semantically reductionistic and theologically inadequate." It is never a good start when an argument begins with obscure and undefined words. "Semantically reductionistic" seems to be the claim monogenes has within is semantic range "begotten." That is not an argument, that is a claim. "Theologically inadequate" again claims unique or one of a kind (not one...
In his encyclical, "The Reunion of Christendom" (1885), Pope Leo XIII stated that the pope holds "upon this earth the place of God Almighty."
In the Catechism, can be found the following: "The Pope takes the place of Jesus Christ on earth...by divine right the pope has supreme and full power in faith and morals over each and every pastor and his flock. He is the true Vicar of Christ, the head of the entire church, the father and teacher of all Christians He is the infallible ruler, the...
A couple weeks back I went to the Dr to have some bloodwork done.....
Turns out I have an A1C of 8.7. The Dr says that means diabetes. I'm going to have to make diet changes and go on extra medication. They even gave me a blood glucose meter, but I don't actually need to use it unless I feel faint

In Luke 12:43-48 we find Jesus speaking about a returning master and four different types of slaves. The return of the master (Jesus) points towards the impending judgement that awaits each one of us where we find out whether we will enter into the kingdom of God (master’s household) or not. So, what happens when the master returns? If the master finds his slave at work (being faithful and obedient), he will be put in charge of the master’s possessions (enters the household of God, heaven)....
The Protestant churches today and even some brethren are backing away from identifying the AntiChrist power, and yet the Reformers and even those before them saw clearly who the AntiChrist was. What is happening to the churches today, are they becoming blind and forgetful of the truth they once saw clearly. Here is a list I came across of Pre-Reformation and Reformers Interpretations:
Date Name Reference Interpretation
c. 1310 Dante Alighieri
Rev. 17 Harlot=Roman Church
c. 1331 Michael of...
A Caution Concerning Creeds and Confessions
When I first entered my Reformed stage (what Sproul Jr. referred to as the "cage" stage!) I was quite interested with all things Reformed, including studying out the various Confessions, especially the Westminster Confession of Faith.
Although I still believe in the five Sola's I hesitate to call myself Reformed or Calvinist because of the additional baggage of those two terms.
But I noticed a tendency. Confessions tend to, over time, impose an...
No, that particular word does not occur in any Bible translation that I am aware of. I thought it would be a catchy header for the intent of this thread.
I'll be citing certain words in several Bible translations and tell you how often they occur.
NRSV : 3
NIV : 7
NET : 18
NLT : 19
LEB : 22
CSB : 25
ISV and EXB : 28
CEB : 40
Are you surprised that the NRSV used that word so rarely? Perhaps you were taken by surprise that the NIV uses it infrequently.
CSB : 1
