    I guess that we all will need to stop using 'him and her" and use now 'they and them"

    Yes, I find that to be a highly annoying practice of the NIV 2011, also.

    Sorry for demolishing one of your pet theories. See my Humanoids thread. The ESV and NASB both use the word them more often in the New Testament than the NIV.

    Well, we might as well shut off our Apple IPads and other electronics, pull out our camping supplies, and pop our tents in the forest, as CNN is basically saying the world as we know it is over. Talk about gloom and doom...

    "Hong Kong / London (CNN Business)Global stock markets plummeted for a seventh consecutive day on Friday as the coronavirus continued to spread, increasing fears that the epidemic will wipe out corporate profits and push some of the world's biggest economies into recession.

    China's Shanghai Composite (SHCOMP) closed down 3.7%, bringing losses for the week to 5.6%, the index's worst performance since April 2019. Japan's Nikkei (N225) ended down 3.7% and benchmark indexes in Australia and South Korea both shed 3.3%.

    European stocks suffered even greater losses, with Germany's DAX (DAX) dropping as much as 5% in early trading and London's FTSE 100 (UKX) shedding 4.4%. In Italy, where 17 people have now died as a result of the virus, the benchmark FTSE MIB index was down nearly 4%.

    US stock futures were also sharply lower Friday, suggesting that the country's three main indexes will resume their plunge after a sharp sell-off on Thursday during which the Dow suffered its worst ever points loss, dropping 1,191 points, or 4.4%. The S&P 500 suffered a similar fall and has slid more than 10% from its recent peak....
    The corporate warnings paint a dire picture of the effect that the coronavirus is having on some of the world's biggest economies. Growth in China is expected to slow significantly, and other economies such as Japan and Germany could slide into recession as the outbreak compounds weakness caused by factors including the trade war between the United States and China.
    If the coronavirus outbreak becomes a global pandemic, $1 trillion could be wiped off the world economy, with recessions in the United States and the eurozone, according to economists at Oxford Economics. "

    Theology taught from Genesis through Revelation. Covenant Theology. God established covenants. These covenants revolve around the Promised One, Jesus Christ. The covenants were always given to the elect people of the promise.
    What dispensationalism has done is it has attempted to remove the clear flow of the covenants and instead create different ages for different times. I grew up in dispensationalism. I read my Bible and I see how woefully lacking it is in scripture.

    Your label of "replacement theology" is inaccurate. There is no replacement. God has always made his covenant with his elect.

    Romans 9:3-8 For I could wish that I myself were accursed and cut off from Christ for the sake of my brothers, my kinsmen according to the flesh. They are Israelites, and to them belong the adoption, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the worship, and the promises. To them belong the patriarchs, and from their race, according to the flesh, is the Christ, who is God over all, blessed forever. Amen. But it is not as though the word of God has failed. For not all who are descended from Israel belong to Israel, and not all are children of Abraham because they are his offspring, but “Through Isaac shall your offspring be named.” This means that it is not the children of the flesh who are the children of God, but the children of the promise are counted as offspring.

    Not even the vaunted nas is immune to that, as 2020 looks like to be getting into some degree the gender Inclusive game!

    The death rate by flu is 0.02 of 1 percent.
    The death rate of the Corona virus is 2 percent.

    This means that the Corona virus is more deadly than the common flu, if it is left unchecked.

    So, if the world population is 10 billion humans and 2 percent of humanity dies from the Corona Virus we end up with 200 million people dead.

    Compare that same to the common flu at 0.02 of 1 percent and you have 20 million dead.

    Hopefully that gives you a better understanding of the strength of the Corona virus as compared with the common flu.

    This is why quarantine and extreme diligence is taking place. It's a big deal.

    Don't you bother to read? It's in at least 50 countries so far, and it's just starting. Two other nations with the greatest threat are Iran and Italy. I know that Iran is intentionally under reporting their figures. I believe Italy's numbers. Japan is struggling. Schools will be closed for at least a month in the whole nation.

    Israel has announced that they might have a vaccine now for it, as does a medical center here in USA now!
    main problem is rules and regulations, as said could take up to a year to get it distributed out!
    dems will now be trying to bottle this all up, as they see this as another way to take down trump, due to him not "doing enough about it"
