Response to the Lampstand July 2017 on the Devil

We know a few people were scratching their heads on the final part of the Lampstand’s insert on EC wondering what was up.  The table moved on to discuss the devil.  Honestly the representation of the EC position is so totally weird that it is hardly worth comment.  Nonsense.  Whatever something thinks they might have understood they clearly didn’t.  The other side of the table is not much better – an unbalanced focus on winning an argument against a strawman and this is the result.  Below is the table: Continue reading

Lampstand July 2017 insert – Death and Sin

So the Lampstand Magazine continues on its insert to misrepresent the EC position on what death means and in the process neglect a serious number of scriptural passages raised by EC.  The relevant part of their insert is shown below: Continue reading

Lampstand Magazine “Death the Last Enemy” Vol 23 (2017) response

Once again the Lampstand Magazine has demonstrated regrettable quality control in an article called “Death the Last Enemy (Part 2)” in Volume 23.  Strawmen attacks abound and the article notably fails (as did the last one) to deal with any of the arguments/rationale advanced by those who accept EC.

The first man Adam and The Lampstand

first man adam

The bible dictates how we should understand things – including human summaries of the gospel.  The Lampstand wishes to insist Adam was the first man in their July 2017 insert.  We have already dealt with the scriptural differences between Gen 1 and 2 (which deals therefore with Gen 1:27).  The second proof text they advance is the view of Adam that Eve was the mother of all living Gen 3:23, as if Adam was someone informed on the state of the world outside the cloistered garden

Interestingly as old earth creationists, they strictly believe ‘Adam is the first man in the current creation’ (which is not in the bible of course).  This is just bad biblical exposition.  In the context of 1 Cor 15:45 Adam is the first man and Jesus the last Adam, Adam the first man and Jesus the second (1Cor 15:47).  It’s bad exposition to demand Adam was literally first and Christ spiritually second & last.  Nothing more nothing less.
