    • The Death of Protestant America?
      from First Things: "America was Methodist, once upon a time—Methodist, or Baptist, or Presbyterian, or Congregationalist, or Episcopalian. A little light Unitarianism on one side, a lot of stern Calvinism on the other, and the Easter Parade running right down the middle: our annual Spring epiphany, crowned in bright new bonnets. "The average American these days would have ­trouble recalling the dogmas that once defined all the jarring sects, but their names remain at least half alive: a kind of verbal remembrance of the nation’s religious history ... "And yet, even while we may remember the names of the old denominations, we tend to forget that it all made a kind of sense, back in the day, and it came with a kind of order ... Through most of the nation’s history, these endless divisions and ­revisions of Protestantism renounced one another and sermonized against one another. They squabbled, sneered, and fought. But they had something in common, for all that. Together they formed a vague but vast unity. Together they formed America.... http://www.firstthings.com/article/2008/08/001-the-death-of-protestant-america-a-political-theory-of-the-protestant-mainline "'... the destiny of America,' as Alexis de Tocqueville observed in 1835, was 'embodied in the first Puritan who landed on those shores, just as the whole human race was represented by the first man.'"
    • WHATS SO IMPORTANT ABOUT THE SABBATH AND ITS TRUE DAY?
      I the Bible does not tell me that he kept the sabbath, so either it was not something he was doing. or it was not important for us to know and in either case it's no reason to think I am still supposed to keep it other than the first commandment that Jesus gave us. Remember the Sabbath to keep it Holy......    with the Holy Spirit living in us, we don't need that reminder any longer.     Besides after what Eve did to him, who knows if Adam wanted to ditch his wife or not.
    • Creation and an Old Earth - One Possibility
      On the surface there was no land. Just sea.  Obviously the core of the planet was the same as today.. 1 In the beginning God created the sky and the land. 2 Now the land was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.  9 And God said, “Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear.” And it was so. 10 God called the dry ground “land,” and the gathered waters he called “seas.”   Its seems pretty clear?
    • Creation and an Old Earth - One Possibility
      It sure is. So there is ambiguity there.  Is it a summary of the chapter, or does it begin the order of events?  The wording is not clear enough.  I personally believe the first few words are a summary, followed be a sequential order of events. Let me paraphrase it in my own wording: In the beginning (of Man's story) God made the dry land and the sky.    Before this,  the land was formless and empty below the ocean, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the spirit of God was hovering over the waters. Then light filtered down to the surface where the spirit of God was, and there was the first day. Then God made the expanse between the ocean and the cloudy mists, and there was visible sky.  Then dry land appeared out of the ocean.   Then God produced the sun and the moon and the stars as visibility improved and these could be seen through the misty cloudy sky. So the way I see it is just one possibility, the entire universe being created in creation week is another possibility.
