As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, https://forums.carm.org/vb5/ but if clicking on forum on carm.org homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

  • OT: Jesus

    I read this question on Quora and they made a joke out of it. Why isnít Jesus old yet? He is immortal but also has a human nature. As this answer on Quora also suggested, He should be subject to age related health issues. Why does He probably not? Because Heís glorified?
    Serious question.

    Serious question.
    Here is one important testimony that that might help you understand the transformation that took place in the resurrection of Jesus Christ and there are many others in the New Testament
    1Co 15:1-58 ESV

    (1) Now I would remind you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand,

    (2) and by which you are being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you--unless you believed in vain.

    (3) For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures,

    (4) that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures,

    (5) and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve.

    (6) Then he appeared to more than five hundred brothers at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have fallen asleep.

    (7) Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles.

    (8) Last of all, as to one untimely born, he appeared also to me.

    (9) For I am the least of the apostles, unworthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.

    (10) But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me was not in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them, though it was not I, but the grace of God that is with me.

    (11) Whether then it was I or they, so we preach and so you believed.

    (12) Now if Christ is proclaimed as raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead?

    (13) But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised.

    (14) And if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain.

    (15) We are even found to be misrepresenting God, because we testified about God that he raised Christ, whom he did not raise if it is true that the dead are not raised.

    (16) For if the dead are not raised, not even Christ has been raised.

    (17) And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins.

    (18) Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished.

    (19) If in Christ we have hope in this life only, we are of all people most to be pitied.

    (20) But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.

    (21) For as by a man came death, by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead.

    (22) For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive.

    (23) But each in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, then at his coming those who belong to Christ.

    (24) Then comes the end, when he delivers the kingdom to God the Father after destroying every rule and every authority and power.

    (25) For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet.

    (26) The last enemy to be destroyed is death.

    (27) For "God has put all things in subjection under his feet." But when it says, "all things are put in subjection," it is plain that he is excepted who put all things in subjection under him.

    (28) When all things are subjected to him, then the Son himself will also be subjected to him who put all things in subjection under him, that God may be all in all.

    (29) Otherwise, what do people mean by being baptized on behalf of the dead? If the dead are not raised at all, why are people baptized on their behalf?

    (30) Why are we in danger every hour?

    (31) I protest, brothers, by my pride in you, which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die every day!

    (32) What do I gain if, humanly speaking, I fought with beasts at Ephesus? If the dead are not raised, "Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die."

    (33) Do not be deceived: "Bad company ruins good morals."

    (34) Wake up from your drunken stupor, as is right, and do not go on sinning. For some have no knowledge of God. I say this to your shame.

    (35) But someone will ask, "How are the dead raised? With what kind of body do they come?"

    (36) You foolish person! What you sow does not come to life unless it dies.

    (37) And what you sow is not the body that is to be, but a bare kernel, perhaps of wheat or of some other grain.

    (38) But God gives it a body as he has chosen, and to each kind of seed its own body.

    (39) For not all flesh is the same, but there is one kind for humans, another for animals, another for birds, and another for fish.

    (40) There are heavenly bodies and earthly bodies, but the glory of the heavenly is of one kind, and the glory of the earthly is of another.

    (41) There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for star differs from star in glory.

    (42) So is it with the resurrection of the dead. What is sown is perishable; what is raised is imperishable.

    (43) It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness; it is raised in power.

    (44) It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body.

    (45) Thus it is written, "The first man Adam became a living being"; the last Adam became a life-giving spirit.

    (46) But it is not the spiritual that is first but the natural, and then the spiritual.

    (47) The first man was from the earth, a man of dust; the second man is from heaven.

    (48) As was the man of dust, so also are those who are of the dust, and as is the man of heaven, so also are those who are of heaven.

    (49) Just as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the man of heaven.

    (50) I tell you this, brothers: flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable.

    (51) Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,

    (52) in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed.

    (53) For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality.

    (54) When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written: "Death is swallowed up in victory."

    (55) "O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?"

    (56) The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.

    (57) But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

    (58) Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.

      I find Quora to be hostile towards the Bible.

        Yes, heaven and heavenly bodies are not earth and earthly bodies,

        Revelation of John 21:4
        And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes. And death shall be no longer, nor mourning, nor outcry, nor pain will be any longer; for the first things passed away. - LITV


        Test all things and praise God from whom all blessings flow!
