Science: Genetics: Genome Reveals Why Giraffes Have Long Necks [A Foolish Article by the Journal “Nature”]

“Some of the specific genes identified are involved in regulating both skeletal and cardiovascular development. This COULD mean that mutations in a small number of genes are driving the giraffe’s adaptations, such as a long neck and a turbocharged cardiovascular system, in parallel, says Cavener.This study identifies genes associated with the giraffe’s adaptations, BUT DOES…

Progressive Sanctification, Rule of Life, Moral Law, and Antinomianism… Revisited

What If We Used Words Objectively? Imagine if Christians, rather than fighting against terms needlessly, took those terms back, defining them clearly and objectively, and educating others on the right use of them. Progressive Sanctification (Literally, proceeding onward in, forward in, or increasing in, being set apart for a sacred purpose) 1913 Webster Dictionary: Progressive:…

The true Gospel is good news and glad tidings for true sinners; not for pretend ones, not for those in the legal/judicial sense only, but for true (experimental/felt) sinners.
