    The Consuming Fire

    In analyzing the ultimate demise of the wicked, we are told throughout the scriptures that the wicked will 'be consumed' and 'consume away into smoke', 'be destroyed', be 'devoured', suffer 'the second death', be as 'the tares in the fire', 'chaff', be 'burnt up', be 'as if they had not been'...

    Calvinism vs Arminianism

    Wow. It has been awhile since I have posted here. Things look different! Lately on another website I have been constantly exposed to Calvinist arguments. I don't adhere to it but I can see the support for in the scriptures for it (John 6:37-40 for one example) I would like to know how the...

    1 Corinthians 15: Resurrection not Immortality!

    We see that Paul preached the resurrection to the Gentiles. The Gentiles were pagan Greeks and Romans who believed that the soul was immortal. As a matter of fact, we see that Paul was mocked by many Gentiles for preaching resurrection. Why? Because everybody believed in the immortality of the...

    Conditional Immortality through the years

    This post of mine seemed to go ignored and/or missed in the 'Hell' thread and I feel it is important to note. Too many like to play the 'cult card' when it comes to denying the immortality of the soul and belief in conditional immortality. Here are many since the reformers who didn't belong to...

    Bible Study Analysis of Psalm 37

    It is necessary to understand the viewpoint of the Hebrews on the final judgment of mankind. This chapter expresses it quite clearly. Here it is. This chapter along with many other texts show: 1) The Hebrews did not have a concept of an immortal soul 2) That David and the rest of the...

    'Death', 'destroy' and 'destruction'

    There has been so much talk from traditionalists who support the immortality of the soul that the terms 'death', 'destruction' 'perishing', and 'destroy' don't mean 'finality' but simply existence in a corrupt form. This is necessary to believe to reconcile the doctrine of a) eternal torment...

    Our little pooch passed on today...

    :cry: Hey folks. It is a sad day for me and my wife. What started out as a routine teeth cleaning for our old dog ended up as heart failure and him passing on. My wife has owned him since he was a few weeks old and he would have been 17 in November. Luckily the doctor was keeping...

    Steve Irwin 'Crocodile Hunter' dead at 44

    Steve Irwin was stung in the heart by a stingray while filming off the coast of Australia. I for one am very sad, not just because I really have enjoyed the man over the last few years but sad for his young family who will miss their dad. How tragic! I'm really going to miss the guy and...

    Spy Spotter

    When I was experiencing spam from program I had downloaded, I came across this program to detect spy ware and accidentally downloaded it. It gave me more problems than without it. It was blocking everything and sending me constant messages. After painstaking effort, I managed to get it off...

    The 'spirit' in the Bible

    Many try to interpret the spirit as the soul and that it survives death. However, the two words ‘soul’ and ‘spirit’ cannot be used interchangeably, nor does either refer to something that is immortal. This “spirit†is not conscious or immortal, but the life...

    The 'soul' in the Bible

    It is important in understanding that whether saints can be conscious is heaven or the wicked in hell, or whether the wicked will burn eternally, we must look at the views the scripture has on the ‘soul’ and the ‘spirit’. The reason this is important is that what we...

    Biblical case for annihilationism

    Biblical case for annihilationism Despite the insistence by some that annihilation of the wicked “has holes†(which theory doesn’t?), is “biblically unsupportable†and “cultic doctrineâ€Â, annihilation is the best and most biblically cohesive view of the...

    Back in March, I wrote this up and I thought I'd bring it back as it didn't seem to take off then. I thought it would be fun to 'poke fun' at the idiosyncracies of your own faith in the vein of 'you might be a redneck if...' If you can't laugh at your church, who can you laugh at? You can...

    Hellfire texts explained as annihilation

    The Bible is full of references to the ultimate destruction of the enemies of God. Many NT references which seem to support eternal torment use language from the OT that signifies total destruction. Whereas most people see eternal torment, the Bible uses them as complete annihilation...

    A joke I heard...

    Saw this joke hanging in my office and I thought I would have to share it. :-D "A man and his wife were looking for a new vehicle and the man (of course) was trying to be frugal, picking out a number of used cars that he felt would fit the bill for what they needed. His wife, on the other...

    Removing search/word memory...

    Hey y'all. I run Windows XP here and I am wondering how do you get rid of the search/word memory from your browser? For example when I type in the word 'how' in my search engine, it automatically would put in 'how to clean your carpet' that I had searched for 4 or 5 days ago. Also even in...

    Rich Man and Lazarus

    Folks, I found this site on the parable of the Rich man and Lazarus. It is probably one of the most thorough exegetical studies on it that I have seen (and from a non-Adventist too for all you SDA bashers!). It is very good. I know how we feel about it all and we all have our own...
