The subject of angels has long fascinated mankind, not just believers but unbelievers, and not just dedicated believers bent on spiritual growth, but also those with "itchy ears" for this subject but not necessarily for other teachings of the Bible.

Wolfgang, a friend, asked me to "build a bridge" between Illich and Girard. The figure of Anti-Christ carries a lot of colorful, historical baggage.
Building on fairly slight New Testament evidence, the legend of an Anti-Christ whose appearance will initiate the last battle begins to grow in early Christian times. Hippolytus, a little later, knows that the Deceiver will resemble Christ in every particular. His mouth is a cubit wide, his teeth a span in length, his fingers are like sickles.
As recently as 2, for example, the United States Congress felt it necessary to censure Bob Jones University for this view.
Vladimir Solovyev, the late nineteenth century Russian theologian, poet, and pamphleteer; and psychologist C. In what follows I will try to summarize each of their views and then compare them.
Ivan Illich was a Roman Catholic priest, who lived from to Inhe withdrew from all church office after inquisitorial proceedings were begun against him in Rome.
Late in his life, at my initiative, he agreed to share his thoughts on how the institutionalization of Christianity has shaped the modern civilization that grew out of Latin Christendom. He used the old Latin adage corruptio optimi pessima — the corruption of the best is the worst.
He had recently expressed the same idea in a lecture at the McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago: I want to explore with you a phenomenon that I consider constitutive of the West, of that West which has shaped me, body and soul, flesh and blood.
This central reality of the West is marvelously expressed in the old Latin phrase: A priest and a Levite happen upon him. There is no way of categorizing who my neighbor ought to be. It can only be a free creation between two people, and one which cannot happen unless something comes to me through the other, by the other, in his bodily presence.
It has a telos. It aims at somebody, some body, but not according to a rule. It is a revealed possibility, disclosed by the Incarnation, the presence of God amongst us. And this denial, infidelity, turning away, coldness is what the New Testament calls sin, something which can only recognized by the light of this new glimmer of mutuality.
Freedom, for Illich, is the keynote of the New Testament. But freedom is also what gives the New Testament its unique volatility, its liability to corruption once its institutionalization is attempted.
There is a temptation to try to manage and, eventually, to legislate this new love, to create an institution that will guarantee it, insure it, and protect it by criminalizing its opposite.Nov 19, · This video simply reveals what is written in the Bible's original language without the translations.

William Lane Craig is a prolific Christian philosopher, apologist, author, and public debater. He is the best debater – on any topic – that I’ve ever heard. As far as I can tell, he has won nearly all his debates with srmvision.com debating him, atheists have consistently failed to put forward solid arguments, and consistently failed to point out the flaws in Craig’s arguments.
