The authorship of some Johannine literature has been debated since about the year However, Eusebius mentions that the consensus is that the second and third epistles of John are not his but were written by some other John. Eusebius also goes to some length to establish with the reader that there is no general consensus regarding the revelation of John. The revelation of John could only be what is now called the book of Revelation. The bishops of Asia Minor supposedly requested him to write his gospel to deal with the heresy of the Ebionites , who asserted that Christ did not exist before Mary.

John probably knew and undoubtedly approved of the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke, but these gospels spoke of Jesus primarily in the year following the imprisonment and death of John the Baptist.

Outlook Other Abstract The scriptural geology SG movement is described by historians as a reaction among both scientists and theologians to the long-ages models being proposed by geologists in the early nineteenth century. Specifically, it occupied the period of to after which time the movement essentially died out until revived by George McCready Price and the modern creationist movement of the twentieth century. Possible reasons for the precipitous decline of scriptural geology after the s are explored.

Historians have noted remarkable similarities between scriptural geology SG and the modern creationist movement popularly known as young-earth creationism or YEC. Most of the basic issues have not dramatically changed in the last years and more. A review of the more important issues in the SG movement can prove very helpful in resolving parallel issues being grappled with by YEC scholars today.

One issue that caused the most diverse opinions among SG was where to place the biblical Flood in the geological record. This remains one of the most hotly debated issues among creationist geologists today. This was republished in abridged form as The Great Turning Point Mortenson and has been serialized with some individual chapters published in the Journal of Creation and subsequently posted on the creation.

There is a great controversy within our churches and theological schools threatening the unconditional Gospel of grace by compromising faith alone as the condition for salvation. This is the explicit concern of the epistles to the Romans and Galatians, and it surfaces as well in some other epistles, such as Ephesians, Colossians, Philippians, and First John. Centuries later, the battle cry of the Reformation was sola fide, and so perhaps it must be heard again today. The evangelical church is in need of a decisive authoritative voice in defense of sola fide as the condition and confirmation of salvation.

Jesus is calling for you! First, there is the curious detail that Bartimaeus sheds his cloak as he rises to go to Jesus. Why did he discard one of the few things he had, and something as valuable as a cloak? Some scholars see this as Bartimaeus rejecting worldly possessions on his way to Christ.
