O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
At the end of 2007, Tim Martin and I published the 3rd edition of Beyond Creation Science. This is the edition is which we first defined and developed Covenant Creation. Before this, only one conference paper had been issued on the subject.
Imagine our surprise, while the book was still at the printer, Ed Stevens had published in the Dec. 2007 issue of Fulfilled Magazine a critique of Covenant Creation. …

Adam was promised the death for eating from the Tree of The Knowledge of Good and Evil. What kind of death was it?
Some say this death was physical death. Some say this death was spiritual death. And some say this death was spiritual death followed by physical death 900-some years later.
Some believe Adam was created immortal, that, had Adam not sinned, he would never die. Does this make…
Everybody knows that there were eight people saved by Noah's ark. But what we typically fail to realize is that some people don't count. Servants for instance.
I'd like to compare two events, Noah's Flood and Jacob's travel to Egypt, to show that the ancients counted people differently than we do today. …
In the previous article http://deathisdefeated.ning.com/profiles/blogs/the-problem-of-context-in-the-genealogy-of-genesis-5?xg_source=activity, we established that the flood account was embedded in the Genesis 5 genealogy. That genealogy ended with the last two verses of Genesis 9.
In Genesis 6, the embedded account starts with
1 Now it…
We rarely read things in the Bible in their proper context. Part of this has to do with the chapter and verse divisions. I’d like for everyone to read this extended text from Genesis straight through starting near the end of Genesis 4, all the way to my chosen end.
You will notice, in Genesis 4 that we have the birth of Seth and Enosh. The first two verses of tell us a bit about Adam (the meaning of these two verses is not germane to…
Young Earth Creationists believe and teach that Humans and Apes from the same ancestors is impossible, yet that Foxes and Dogs from the same ancestors happened over a period of only 400 years or so from the time of Noah's Flood until the time of Abraham and Job.
It is difficult to get a detailed description of the differences between the actual genes in these numerous species. Genes being the feature that evolution "works on" in a well understood and demonstrable manner.…Continue

The 3rd edition of Beyond Creation Science is almost 5 years old. It's past time to start on a new edition.
Tim and I plan to start on the new edition this winter and post the chapters one at a time as they are finished.
The basic structure of the first four chapters of the book will remain unchanged, but these chapters do have things we need to fix. Beyond that, we will wait and see.
Any comments, the more specific the better, please email to me.…
"For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled." Matthew 5:18
If you are a Christian, but you are not a follower of Ellen G. White, then you most likely do not follow the practice of Saturday Sabbath, kosher diet, sacrifices, etc., all the things found in the Law. Far more than the jots and tittles have passed away. Essentially the whole Law has passed…Continue
What is the defining difference between Partial preterism, Covenant Eschatology which denies Covenant Creation, and Covenant Eschatology that embraces Covenant Creation?
Is it not Genesis 1 eschatology?
Preterism focuses on Adam's death (Gen. 3) and the judicial end of sin and death. That is, preterists agree that Genesis 3 has an eschatology and that eschatology was completed in the first century. This in fact might be a good way to define preterism. God put…Continue

DEATH THROUGH SIN
A contention exists among some traditionalist that there was no death even in the animal world until Adam sinned. To support this idea, about one half of one verse in Romans is cited: “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin…”…Continue
Welcome all followers of Harold Camping.
As you know, Salvation ended last May and today was "The End of the Age." That makes all of you Full Preterists.
We have differences in the precise understanding, nature, and timing of the events of the end, but we are in fundamental agreement.
The Age to Come Is Now Here!
Welcome AD 2011…Continue

In another thread, William posted a lengthy exert from this piece by Gordon Clark. The jist of the article is that science is really a mess of unproven theories based on some low level facts, and careful examination will show that these low level facts are still only theories.
Clark has a much higher opinion of theology. Why?
Ultimately, the Hebrew Scriptures ar a bunch of…Continue

Michael Bennett asks, "Does CC think that God's people were formed out of the real water?"
Actually, I think God's people are formed out of baptism. That is standard Church of Christ / Christian Church doctrine. We think of the water in the baptistry as a symbol.
Other churches have different views.
