I didn't know Karen was into track. Cool! Sorry to hear about her knee injury. I hear those types of injuries can take some time to fully heal so I'll keep her in my prayers. In my younger years I…"
Hope you and your wife are doing well.
You wrote, "I thought I had made the point well enough, that men before Adam sinned, but that having no law from God, that sin was not held against them."
Serious question. …"

I am a bit confused by your reply. On the one hand, you say God chose you, but on the other hand you say that we have free will. It would be appreciated if you can explain your understanding because I don't get…"

Beale does deal with it. When you get your book, check out the chapter on justification. I skipped ahead and am reading that chapter now. Its probably better to read the first three chapters before skipping ahead…"
"I’ve asked this before, more than once, and haven’t been given any answer I can accept. What is it that the believer gained in AD70 that they didn’t already have by virtue of the cross? They were justified by the works of Jesus, by His death and resurrection. From that event we walk in the Lord with our “inner” man cleansed."
This seems like a confusing statement to me.First you say " What is it that the believer gained in AD70 that they didn’t already have by virtue of the cross?" but then you go on to say "They were justified by the works of Jesus, by His death and resurrection.
Which was it? At the cross or after the resurrection? Or was it at the ascension? Or was it to be at his appearing a second time per Heb 9:28 so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.
You also said " Our future hope is that our whole man - including our “outer” man - will be changed also, just like Jesus’ was when He rose from the grave! We will be GLORIFIED."
Could you please quote some scriptures where this hope is promised to the Church? Or do you believe that all promises to the OT Israel hasn't been fulfilled? Was their promises transferred to us? If so where?
Thanks Sharon but it seems since your views have changed i have seen you write very little about them and would love to get a better understanding.
Would you say your views are similar to Vince's new hyper-realism views?
