Comment on Questions and Parables: Grace in Luke 17 by Pat Badstibner https://henryneufeld.com/threads/2016/05/14/questions-and-parables-grace-in-luke-17/#comment-6642 Tue, 17 May 2016 19:56:19 +0000 https://henryneufeld.com/threads/?p=7736#comment-6642 Great post my friend, thanks for referencing my post and I’m glad it blessed you. When we see God’s law as representative of God’s holiness, our love for God grows exponentially. Because we come to understand that this Holy God loves this mess of a sinner intensely, passionately and seriously. As, I said in the post we can only begin to understand God’s love for us when we stop playing the limbo with His law.

Comment on Overthinking by Virginia Davidson https://henryneufeld.com/threads/2016/05/02/overthinking/#comment-6641 Tue, 03 May 2016 00:23:07 +0000 https://henryneufeld.com/threads/?p=7719#comment-6641 So glad your tree sap was less complex than mine. 🙂 Nothing would touch it but isopropyl alcohol and a whole lot of rubbing with a sturdy rag. And often, the sap was accompanied by bud coats and bits of stems.

Then those trees died, 26 of them–hybrid poplars–and the sap problem is gone. It cost us $10,000.00 to take those sap-makers away, but it was good riddance! No more sap tracked into the house, either!

I’m wondering if you calculated all the available space on your property? Did you run an azimuth between the trees to see if there is a 1) less vulnerable space for sap droppings, or 2) consider removing a tree or two (only if they are liquid amber) to open a free space? Then there’s the possibility of trading in your car for one with a smaller footprint. It seems to me you didn’t overthink–you actually under-thought through this. (Hmmm, I’m wondering if a dash is really necessary for under-thought. Perhaps I should just separate with a space.)

Comment on Tonight on the Energion Tuesday Night Hangout: Age of the Earth and some Textual Discussion by Henry Neufeld https://henryneufeld.com/threads/2016/04/12/tonight-on-the-energion-tuesday-night-hangout-age-of-the-earth-and-some-textual-discussion/#comment-6638 Wed, 13 Apr 2016 13:42:16 +0000 https://henryneufeld.com/threads/?p=7698#comment-6638 I think many “vocal subsets” are unfortunate, yet the best way to work is to discuss. I thought he was a kinder, gentler young earth creationist than I had heard before. I preferred having Elgin Hushbeck, an old earth creationist interview him, as the difference is a bit narrower and can focus on the age of the earth rather than evolutionary theory, which it would if I, a theistic evolutionist (but see this), was doing the interview.

It is to the detriment of evangelical Christianity that a vocal subset believe and support YEC.

Comment on The Apologetics of Hebrews – Can You Defend a Dead Church? by ainsleyblair https://henryneufeld.com/threads/2016/04/12/the-apologetics-of-hebrews-can-you-defend-a-dead-church/#comment-6636 Tue, 12 Apr 2016 19:53:56 +0000 https://henryneufeld.com/threads/?p=7696#comment-6636 From the time I intentionally gave my heart to the Lord (preschool years), I have read and studied the Bible, EGW, and other theological/inspirational books. It seems God worked with His creation (mankind) in ways they could understand – together with the times they lived. They wanted a king – He reluctantly gave them a king. Etc. From Eden to the times we are living in now, God interacts/intervenes for our best good and (in His wisdom) the best good of the universe. My name is Carroll Dunston.

(Smiley face here) Thanks for looking this up.

I think the Learning Bible, as a study Bible, doesn’t have a very firm theological position, but I suspect its editors/writers did not want to make a definite affirmation of modern miracles, or of the gifts of the Spirit being operational in the 20th/21st century church, in order to avoid that controversy. It was originally produced under the auspices of the American Bible Society, which even more makes me tend to think they were trying for a bit generic.

You are definitely right, however, that one needs to pay attention to the theological biases of study Bibles.
