I understand about "there is only now," but I think time is something God created with space. And that gives us the perception of past and future, but I sometimes wonder how we'll perceive time, maybe just truly in the present, when we're immortalized because there will be no death or corruption which seems to have something to do with us perceiving time the way we do. Death is ever getting closer, and, as you get older, times seems to go faster. It's all a matter of perception that can even be altered through various means. Even our perception of space can be altered, but I think we'll perceive both differently when we're immortalized. If we can be snatched away into the air to the celestial realm, I think even matter will be perceived differently which actually is just space, which you can see if you've got a powerful enough microscope.
I no longer believe in the concept of "free will" for anybody except God even though we make choices in our life.
I think God is "omniscient" and omnipotent.
I don't believe "God chooses to forget my sin." I think I'm justified through Jesus Christ's faith.
I don't think "The incarnate Son chose to 'close his eyes' to the divine nature." I think he simply emptied himself "taking the form of a slave, coming to be in the likeness of humanity."
I think to say "he did not cease to be God" is a loaded statement because Jesus said the Father is his God. The word "God" can be interpreted various ways. Even Satan is said to be "the god of this eon."
I really don't care about "Augustinian logic" or that of any of the so called church fathers.
I don't believe "God has a triune nature." Scripture says God is one Lord. The trinity is just church doctrine that's a remnant of the political expediency of the Roman Empire. Yahweh was never said to be a "triune" god in the Hebrew Scriptures, and he was never said to be a "triune" god in the Greek scriptures either. I believe the Father, Yahweh Elohim, is the source of all. Yeshua HaMashiach, commonly called Jesus Christ, is the word of God, the only-begotten son of God, and the image of God. The holy spirit is simply the power of God that generated the Christ child in the virgin Mary, inspired the authors of the ancient scriptures, and lives in us believers.
I know there is much fondness for the Hebrew scriptures and culture, but I think God intentionally chose the Greek language to spread the evangel to all the nations at the time. I don't think Greek philosophy or mythology diminishes the Greek scriptures even though both are applied by the church to distort the evangel.
I think the "sheep" and "goat" applies to live nations and how they treated Israel at the judgment that will come a thousand years before dead individuals are raised and judged at the great white throne. http://www.saviourofall.org/charts/ChartOfJudgments.html
I don't think there is a "Holy Ghost" because I think that's simply an inaccurate translation for "holy spirit" which is just the power of God.
There are various figurative interpretations of many things in the Hebrew and Greek scriptures. Some see things more literally than figuratively though.
I think "kneeling is worship," and "forced submission" isn't necessarily a bad thing if you realize that love is the most powerful force in the universe, and experiencing submission by the love of God is something that's good and will happen to all eventually.
Annihilation is not the answer. It is simply a misconception. I think, even when the word "destroy" is used in scripture, it is not meant to be thought of as a permanent condition because other scripture makes it clear that all on the earth and in the heavens will be reconciled to God through Christ's blood on the cross; God is the savior of all mankind; and God will be all in all.
I think the answer is not to forsake the literal for the figurative, but to know their purpose and place and be enlightened by both.
Everything in this post is just my perspective about what I've read in yours. I intend no offense, and I claim no authority. I also recognize no authority but God as we read in the word of God even though I realize everybody has a different interpretation.
