  • Bible Answers: Ezekiel 18 represents individual responsibility

    “I just read Ezekiel 18. Does it support the doctrine of eternal security?”—Katrina
    The doctrine of “eternal security” holds that once an individual becomes a Christian (i.e., is accepted by God through Christ), that individual can never “lose” her salvation.
    This doctrine has its roots in numerous texts (John 1:12; 3:5-7; Rom. 8:15-17; II Cor. 5:17ff; Eph. 1:11-14; 2:5-7; Phil. 1:6; Col. 2:10-15; I Pet. 1:3-5; passim).
    As can be seen from this list, the doctrine is essentially a New Testament teaching. Christian biblical scholars sometimes point to ancient Hebrew themes (such as the Covenant, the Chosen People, Exodus and the Promised Land, et al.) that they suggest are consistent with “eternal security.”
    The text at hand is fascinating. Ezekiel 18 presents one of the earliest and most clear statements regarding individual responsibility before God. Theretofore, responsibility for sin and repentance was born by the community, the tribe and clan and family. In this passage, the “word of the Lord” (18:1) clearly states that God will deal with both a father and his son as individuals for their faith and their conduct.
    Concomitantly, there is grace: the wicked man who turns from his sin and lives righteously will find life (18:21-22, 27-28).

  • Tales of the Holocaust Torah Scroll

    Rabbi Schwab of Temple Beth Shalom will tell the tale of the Holocaust Memorial Torah Scroll’s journey, its near destruction, and now its restoration: 4 p.m. Jan. 26 at White Rock Presbyterian Church, 310 Rover Blvd. in White Rock.
    In Europe, a document dating back some 4,000 years, detailing a part of human history in the ancient Near East, with guidelines for living a good life, was written down 350 years ago.
    The process took a full year as a scribe carefully and reverently copied each letter, by hand with a quill pen and special ink on parchment, from a previous version following a mystical tradition. Now imagine how this scroll of wisdom, teaching and history was revered and how many upheavals the people who treasured it endured.
    Finally, by the time of World War II, the community to which it had been entrusted could no longer keep it safe, so it was hidden until the winds of war passed.
    The community itself did not survive the Nazi Holocaust. The resting place of their sacred text was lost, locked behind the Iron Curtain in Czechoslovakia.
    How was it found? How was it liberated? How did it find its way from its hiding place to London, England, and from there to New Mexico?

  • Bible Answers: Revelations modern mysteries

    “If the Book of Revelation is the prophecy of the end times, why aren’t there references to modern technology (planes, guns, tanks, etc.)?” — Devin
    The book doesn’t address modern technology because that is not consistent with its nature or purpose.
    The book was written to first century Christians. The language, apocalyptic in nature (meaning “hidden” or encoded), would be challenging enough for them. Detailed descriptions of machines that might exist two millennia in the future would be completely confusing and would likely derail the purpose for writing to them in the first place.
    Furthermore, in spite of the “future” significance so often accorded to the Book of Revelation, it nonetheless possesses a relevance for every generation in which it is read. The power of the message; i.e., “no matter how tough this life is, Christ has conquered and the believer’s ultimate hope is in Him,” should be heard repeatedly throughout the years. References to modern technology would not add anything of substance to the communication of this message.
    There is another reason it does not contain “modern” technology. No one knows when the end of the world will take place.
