The Creed vs. The Scripture: Living with the Tension

As part of a New Testament seminary course I have been reading a book called Practicing Theological Interpretation by Joel Green. While I am enjoying the book and I do recommend it for its thorough discussion of various hermeneutical paradigms, one section on the "Rule of Faith" as dictated by the "Creed" (singularly referencing the collective creeds of the church throughout history) was challenging. Here is my brief response:

The Covenant Creation Archive

The purpose of the “Covenant Creation Archive” is to provide those desiring to sincerely and diligently look into a covenantal, non-concordist framework for Genesis creation which harmonizes the beginning of the Bible (creation) with the end of the Bible (Revelation) with a…

Barth vs. Brunner on "Natural Theology"

I recently wrote a paper analyzing Karl Barth's arguments against Emil Brunner's theses laid out in an essay called "Nature and Grace." Barth was deeply concerned about the consequences of a so-called "true natural theology" which ascribes a "point of contact" for divine revelation apart from God's self-revelation in Jesus Christ, witnessed by the Scripture. Here is how Barth defines "natural theology":

"By 'natural theology' I mean every (positive or negative)…

Ken Palmer Banned for Plagiarism

To the members of Death is Defeated:



We have recently uncovered widespread instances of plagiarism by one of our former members here, Ken Palmer. We initially discovered two instances involving names familiar to most of us here which occurred on another forum where Ken posts: He copied large sections from articles by both Ward Fenley and Sam Frost and passed the writing--the scholarship, the ideas, the work--off as his own. Of course these were blatant, glaring instances of…

New Article from NCMI: "God and Time" by Ward Fenley



a message from Ward:

 

This article scratches the surface of an extremely complex issue, but that affects and encompasses our lives. It is the subject of God and Time. What I have proposed here is not meant to be novel for the sake of being novel. And I am sure others have contemplated the idea;…

"Fully and Entirely--Not JUST Spiritually"

This recent statement from Sam may serve as a basic summary of his new brand of preterism:

"Full Preterism can live with an end to history. Full Preterism can live with a finite number of God's people. Full Preterism can live with a Final State of manifested perfection where heaven and earth [are] joined together where there is ONLY God's Perfect Bride, where there is no potentiality for sin or evil, and where God fully and entirely dwells. Not just "spiritually" but…

In the New Heavens and New Earth: WE, the HEAVENS, ARE the TEMPLE

(Make no mistake: the identity of God's covenant people is ALWAYS "on topic" at deathisdefeated.)

Recently a poster here, in his zeal to prove that the "New Heavens and New Earth" is global and universal in scope, and is not synonymous with the New Jerusalem, and also to prove that "the heavens" are not the temple (thus taking issue with a temple creation motif in Genesis 1), wrote this:

"The text clearly states that God and Lamb are the temple in the…

Context? Indeed!

I will never believe with "literalist preterists" (isn't that an oxymoron?) that Israel was saved with an everlasting salvation under Cyrus as Ken has posited here recently. Nor will I believe that the Genesis 3 curse on the ground was removed by Noah's flood, as Michael Bennett teaches. Both of these are…

Happy Earth Day, Everyone!!!

The Heavens Declare the Glory of God!

And it is true, that unlike the atheist, we as believers have been given the ability to thank God for "creation." But it is also true that unbelievers can also appreciate its beauty. And if our thankfulness to God as Creator is merely a thankfulness for that physical beauty…
