I don't know quite what it is, but expose my kids to something, and they are keen as mustard to do it themselves.

Go to a dinosaur exhibit - suddenly we're drawing, talking and wanting to watch movies about dinosaurs.

Read about superheroes - suddenly we're (Jack, mostly) dressing up as superheros.

Watch Toy Story - suddenly cowboys and spacemen are the go.

What you are about to see is what happened after we took the car through a carwash...

FLASHBACK: Non-Scripture-Equivalent Prophecy 2 - Its value.

Category: God and Church

Written by The Kiwi

Third in a 2006 series on prophecy that does not need to be added to Scripture.

I think most cessationists would agree with me that their definition of prophecy is that it is Scripture-equivalent. To break that down further, that means that prophecy is a) as valuable as Scripture, b) as authoritative as Scripture and c) as accurate as Scripture. What's more, cessationists would argue this has always been the case, and God has always intended prophecy to be that way.

I disagree.

When I was a child, my parents described a place we were going to visit – a big, blue house, with a tree and tyre swing in the front yard and the beach just across the road. They expected me to be really excited about it, so, dutifully, I was. I had the whole place pictured in my minds eye, and I thought about it for the whole 2 hours it took us to get there. When we got there…

FLASHBACK: Non-Scripture-Equivalent Prophecy 1 - How can it not be for today?

Category: Main Blog
Published: Thursday, 17 July 2014
Written by The Kiwi

This series was an interesting foray into the area of whether prophecy should be written down as Scripture, or whether there is room for prophecy that is not equal to Scripture. Written beginning in March 2006.

Not long ago I listened to a tape of a message by D.A. Carson called, "Greater than King David". The basic message was explaining why Jesus said John the Baptist was the greatest to have been born of a woman and why even the least in the Kingdom of Heaven is greater than he. But that, though interesting, is not what I want to discuss here.
