Re: Paul and Sin: Romans 7 (mainly)

Hi Pastor Daniel, I have to disagree on your interpretation of the illustration of Romans 7. It is actually quite clear what Paul is saying, with regards to sin and our relationship with the Law and the Spirit of life and our new relationship with the Law. Okay, using your starting point (I'm going ...

Re: Real or Fake?

Hi Pastor Daniel, Thank you for explaining to me your rationale for posting all those references. They make sense to me now that I understand the intention of having all that many links! I have a question with regards to your statement, "When it comes to recognizing spiritual fakes, I'm afraid that ...

Real or Fake?

Hi Ps Daniel, As I was looking through your posts on New Age infiltrating Christianity and your numerous links to New Agey sites, I was just thinking how helpful is it to do so? I do understand that your intention is to bring to awareness that we may have let in teachings that seem dubious and no do...

Re: 2 Thessalonians: Paul's theology of suffering

Hi Ps Daniel, You answered it indirectly. Just for me to tie your two statements together, "the intrinsic value of suffering for the gospel here, lies not in the actual suffering aspects. It lies in the fact that this was God's will for them." and "Worth" here is a Greek word that means "to desire s...

Bill Johnson tweeted the following:- "Both the religious spirit and the political spirit wrangle over words. That's why people under that influence are known to take statements out of context with which to accuse the one they mistrust. Stay away from the desire to find that one phrase that proves y...

Re: 2 Thessalonians: Paul's theology of suffering

Hi Ps Daniel, Thanks for this biblical perspective of suffering. I would like to ask a question based on your post, "Paul calls it "worthy of this calling". "Worth" here is a Greek word that means "to desire something on the basis of its evident worth or value." This means that Paul actually sees po...

Re: Deception in the Last Days (2Thess 2:1-12, 2Tim 3:1-8)

In context of 2 Thess 2, I would like to do a more contextual exegesis by looking at Chap 2 through the big picture of Paul's second letter to the Thessalonians. Basic information that we can deduce that is happening among the Thessalonians that caused Paul to write this letter is: 1) Teaching that ...
