    Day of the Lord - The Heathen

    I'm not sure that I understand your question. As there are no survivors from Esau, the 'no survivors' are 'nobody'. God always preserves a remnant of Isreal, which is additional evidence that the book is not using "Edom" symbolically.

    I've simply come to the conclusion that there is nobody who is interesting and interested at work... or at church... or.. or....

    Annihilationists confuse types related to eternal punishment with the reality

    As I said before, none of the passages that are unambiguous parables contain proper names. Jesus isn't using everyday activities that teach spiritual principles. He is simply telling what appears to be a true story. The proximity to other parables is irrelevant. This passage mentions that the...

    Why do theologians say the USA isn't mentioned in prophecy? See Rev 12

    Canada's in there too... if you know how to read the non-equidistant letter sequence code. "Can anything good come out of Nazareth?"

    I'm not being childish at all; rather, I'm using your logic against you. I don't believe the passage is symbolic. I believe it is straightforward plain speech that means exactly what it says. There are passages that are symbolic and even cryptic, but I honestly don't think this is one of them.

    Chatting someone up

    "Creepy" is what the typical female thinks of attention from a man she finds unattractive. The same attention from a man she finds attractive is "charming" (or some other positive adjective). There are some people, myself included, who don't have a keen 'ear' for subtle cues and who prefer...

    To borrow your logic, that interpretation means that the word of God is presenting a lie, for Edom is not Israel. You have a choice at this point: either you accept that metaphors are not, in fact, lies at all, but merely comparisons not using "like" or "as", and the Bible does include...

    He still has not answered my direct question as to whether he believes that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh. Rather telling, IMO.

    "Apposes" is not a word in English. The word is "opposes".

    Annihilationists confuse types related to eternal punishment with the reality

    Noted below. Do you revel in irrelevance, or do you think you're funny? There is no moral of the story; it's direct teaching. The rich man doesn't "represent" anyone, and Lazarus doesn't "represent" anyone. In parables, the characters represent others, in metaphorical language. There is no...

    Annihilationists confuse types related to eternal punishment with the reality

    It has nothing to do with translation. Jesus told several parables, and then He told a story. Some people think the story is a parable; others don't. Both have their reasons. I think the "non-parable" view has stronger evidence and is more compelling.

    Galatian Conundrums

    I agree; our walk should not be based on logic, but rather on faith. Logic is a tool to defend the faith, and to point out flaws in the reasoning of others with whom we disagree.

    Perhaps one day, you'll look up what I said and realize that it is serious. Meanwhile, go on demonstrating your ignorance and fruitlessness.

    Day of the Lord - The Heathen

    I don't think you've come anywhere near proving your assertion that Edom (Esau) represents Israel. Both "Edom" and "Esau" mean the descendants of the literal brother of the literal Jacob. The NIV is far more clear: Because of the violence against your brother Jacob, you will be covered with...
