In trying to get back in the swing of posting, I ‘m publishing an article here from one of my Facebook friends.
This was something he wrote and posted on FB last month and I really liked it a lot. I told him I would post it here later so that others could read it as well. Hope you enjoy it too.

Alright, time to get back in the habit of posting new content here on KR! Sorry everyone for being absent from around here. I’ve got a ton of stuff from last month’s Theological Conference in Atlanta and this month’s One God Conference in Austin to share and publish here.
I’ll start today with a paper I just received the other day from Dr. John Roller on the importance of Conditional Immortality. I really enjoyed it and I hope you will too!

For those that subscribe to Anthony Buzzard’s wonderful monthly newsletter “Focus on the Kingdom“, you have undoubtedly seen several announcements for the 2012 Theological Conference (the 21st) that will occur next week May 3rd – May 6th in Atlanta GA. I will be making my way there for my 3rd straight year! It truly is a wonderful conference where Biblical Unitarian/One God Believers from all over the world can hear speakers, make new friends, and fellowship with one another. Last year we had people from Europe, South Africa, South America, Australia, Canada, and from all over the USA. Hope to see you there too!

I read this article awhile back and found it interesting. And I thought it would be good to post here on the KR Blog. I hope you find it interesting as well. Enjoy!
Biblical Unitarianism from the Early Church through the Middle Ages
by Mark M. Mattison
The term “biblical unitarianism,” as used in this journal, denotes a non-Trinitarian theology which is consistent with the inspired Word of God. It is our belief that this understanding of the Scriptures is not new, but has been propagated at various times and places throughout church history. The purpose of this article is to lay a foundation for the future discussion of this topic.
First, however, we must define our terms.

Here’s the 6th installment in this series:
Biblical Common Sense – Death – An ENEMY!
The Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 15:26 says: “The last enemy that will be abolished is death.” Now everyone knows what an enemy is. It is someone or something that harms or opposes us. However the typical sentiment one hears at a mainstream Christian funeral is that death has taken the deceased to a “better place”. Other variants often expressed can be “God has called so and so home”, or “The Lord needed another member of heaven”. But does anyone stop and think about what this actually means? Such ideas mean that death isn’t so bad. For the saved, death would be taking us to the best possible place we could ever hope to be!

Here’s the 5th installment in this series:
Biblical Common Sense – Death – Usage of the Sleep Metaphor
I’ve been to several funerals the last few years where I have heard the preachers often say that the deceased is now “more alive than ever” up in heaven. Yet this runs counter to the most consistent description used in The Bible in reference to the dead. A description that isn’t something that means energized and alert, but the exact opposite with the word “sleep”. Of course this is a metaphor (something used, or regarded as being used, to represent something else) to describe the death. This metaphor is repeatedly used throughout many of the Old Testament books.

Here’s the 4th installment in this series:
Biblical Common Sense – Death – You shall surely NOT die!
In all of God’s Holy Scripture, there’s not a single verse that tell us that human beings have an immortal soul. In fact the very word “immortal” is used only once in 1 Timothy 1:17 and there it refers once again only to God Himself.
However there is a verse in the Bible that does promote the idea that we don’t really die. That verse would be none other than Genesis 3:4.
Genesis 3:4 “The serpent said to the woman, “You surely will not die!”“

Here’s the next section (Part 2) on death.
Biblical Common Sense – Death – Who Possesses Immortality?
One might ask, is anyone naturally in possession of immortality? Yes! Scripture in fact clearly indicates who already has immortality.
1 Timothy 1:17 “Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.”
1 Timothy 6:15-16 “which He will bring about at the proper time– He who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords who alone possesses immortality and dwells in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see. To Him be honor and eternal dominion! Amen.”

Finally, after way too long of a delay since posting the first third (about Jesus) of my lengthy paper entitled “A Common Sense Approach to the Biblical Presentation of Jesus, Death, & THE Devil”, here is the 2nd main topic – DEATH.
Like the first section on Jesus (started on KR here: Biblical Common Sense – Intro – What & Why), this has several sub-sections that are best published in smaller, easier to read sections here on KR. So for my next several posts, I’ll add the sections that follow one another. I’ll also try to provide all the links at the end of each post to the entire series just for reference.
