    I am NOT looking for something to say back here (I already replied) but just look at the kind of comments I get at other places I post (and this is a board where other reformed folk post at as well JFYI).

    -Sophmore phase?

    -Not my first love?

    -Doesn't answer allthe questions?


    Just wanted to share.

    Sophomore? That's quite a complement. I'm honored to be in the presence of an upper classman.

    In their view, most of the Luke 16 passage is taken literally. I'm curious about what they say it means to be in Abraham's bosom. Is that taken literally too? If I understand where they're coming from, Lazarus was literally in Abraham's bosom. How large would that bosom have to be to accommodate all of the OT saints? And what would have happened to those saints who lived before Abraham? Since he was born after they lived, they couldn't have been placed in Abraham's bosom?

    Just wondered if you've gotten a feel for what they believe about this?

    My apple seems to get more and more shiny each day, how about yours?

    I'd congratulate this underclassmen understanding your greater experience and understanding...assure him after finger-painting he'll grasp what you're talking about...

    Okay, don't really say that. :D

    It's a mixed board. There are some who are reformed and it's civil discussion MOST times.

    If you notice though, I have posted here more and more as time goes on. Eventually I will post here only I believe.


    They believe Abraham's bosom was a "resting place" that the Saints went to before Christ's crucifiction.

    That is exactly why we have our membership agreement here on PB; it creates likemindedness. There are less discontinuities, which create more harmony. On boards that differ greatly in theology, you're gonna have these silly arguments. It will eventually tire you. My suggestion: You will know what to expect prior to embarking in conversations on boards of this type. Keep it centered on that which you can agree on. You will have less frustration.

    Perhaps...but with most of my goofy responses, there is a hint of truth... :detective:

    When an opponent in debate resorts to condescension you can be sure he's trying to hide the fact that he is, infact, insecure in his position.

    last I checked, wasn't there a similar belief on 'Abraham's Bosom' in the early church as well ?

    Oh! Oh! I got one! (hand waving madly in air)

    J. Vernon McGee said Jonah was dead for 3 days inside the fish, and that's why he was such a good type of Christ! You gotta take it literally, as Jonah was 3 days in the belly of the fish, so shall the Son of Man be... get it? Just exactly the same! Mom had to call to tell me this exciting fact, and how long ago she'd learned it.

    Dead? Ppl have been found alive inside of a whale before. Where does it say he died?!

    And as having been (past tense) a dispy...I was taught (or maybe God guided my heart to already know) that Abraham's bosom WAS heaven (a symbolic term).
