Dear Oliphints,

It would have been helpful to me if one of you could have provided a definition of philosophy during your chat. Maybe you did and I missed it. I remember at the start Oliphint Sr. spoke about philosophy asking big questions about ultimate reality and knowledge, is that how the term “philosophy” is being used? Is it the action of asking big questions? Thanks for any help you can give.

Thank you for this discussion! It’s neat to see a son interview a father who’s well known, on an important topic! I did appreciate it.

Easiest way to memorise scripture

Hi Everyone,
I have published a book on Amazon which has hit the Top 10 under ‘Christianity & Education’
“How to Memorize Bible Verses: The fast and easy way to memorizing scripture”

However I am not sure how to spread the word in the Christian community about the
website that goes with it: www[dot]memorizebiblescripture[dot]com

If any one has any ideas at all let me know, as everyone who has listened to the Audio’s
has really appreciated it. I have been told to offer a large margin for affiliates and that
seems to be helping

Thank you.

I was so happy to find your podcast, and really enjoyed listening to it. I have some points to bring up if you will entertain them. I have come to believe 2 Peter 3 is a reference to the coming judgement of Jerusalem (yes I am a partial preterest) and find that the dichotomy in the “end of times” where some passages seem to point to Christs return with destruction and other to him returning to a transformed world (or partially transformed) as King can be reconciled by one set (the one of destruction) being the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD (and the ending of the covenant with the Jews) and the final return of Christ at the end of time to finalize the rejuvenation of creation to how is was before the fall. Any thought on that idea?

Thanks for entertaining my view.
