Scholars seek to reclaim a dirty word: secularism | Religion News Service

Scholars have little likelihood of finding the Kingdom of God, as scripture says few mighty in intellect and the gifts of this world, will find the truth. That is just the way it is. However, even plain logic, and these boys have logic, can hit upon the truth even if they are not called to love truth.

And the truth is, secular can mean sanctioned. It isn't inherently holy, nor is it inherently evil. Separation of church and state was introduced by Jesus Christ. Holy is a spiritual concept, not a physical one. The New Zion is heavenly, not earthly, so holy things no longer exist.

We don't want to go too far into gnosticism, for the physical bodies of believers are the temple of the Holy Spirit and He dwells there, not in some building made with stones. But that body will be redeemed, at the Last Day. This is the reality of the New Covenant.

Government is no longer holy. Nor is government inherently evil although it is capable of doing evil from time to time. Government generally keeps order and punishes evil. That is at least the job God has given it.

But it is not holy, as folks like Sarah Palin and Rick Perry,  would have you believe. That false teaching is a sure way for government to abuse the citizens under its thumb.

Those who make the mistake of believing things are still holy are guilty of false religion. Palin and Perry are religious frauds. Even the scholars know that.

Revelation Timeline

This timeline of the Book of Revelation, written after the destruction of the temple in 70 AD, was originally posted at this static page on this blog entitled Essential Articles/END TIMES:



Revelation

Here is a brief timeline regarding the Book of Revelation. Clearly, the book of Revelation was written after the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD. The real destruction was to follow.

And clearly also, most of the prophets who were killed were killed in Jerusalem. The Great City clearly refers to Jerusalem multiple times. However, the destruction of the beast does not. I am putting this timeline out there. I believe it has merit and makes more sense than other timelines, especially Dispensationalist timelines which are created out of thin air:

1. Rev chapter 18 speaks to the destruction of Jerusalem but was written after the destruction of the Temple in 70 AD. It could speak to the completed destruction after 70 AD, in 135 AD, when Jerusalem was literally ploughed under. In 70 AD, 30,000 He…

Predestined to Hell

The human mind cannot always take in the sobering reality of predestination. We who are predestined are greatful, but sorrowful. We know many we love are not so predestined. It hurts. Paul said he could wish that he would suffer if his kinsmen would be saved.

But it is also that same Apostle Paul who told the truth in Romans chapter 9, that some vessels were created for special use, like fancy kitchenware, and others were created for menial use, to be thrown away.

The truth is, sin is created by those who are not kept from it. The devil and Adam created sin in their acts of defiance, having been permitted to have a will apart from the will of God. They used that will to create sin. It is always that way. Only God is good, and only His Will is sinless.

So then, there are a few predestined to heaven, through God given faith. And there are many, including many who believed in predestination like Calvin and the Protestants, who are predestined to hell. They were created for menial use onl…
