Die Like Men? A Response to Dr. Michael Heiser
10/19/2009 - Tur8infanWe are all going to die. I don't mean that in an imminent way, though perhaps some of us will pass shortly, but instead in a general sense. It is the condition of humanity that all men die. You and I will both die one day. If you are not righteous in God's eyes when you come before His holy judgment, you will be sentenced to hell. Now, while there is time, repent of your sins. Ask God for mercy, and seize hold of Christ as your mediator. But that's not the primary reason I wrote this post. After all, many of the readers of this blog already believe.
Instead, I wanted to focus on responding to something Dr. Michael Heiser has written. I hope to add a few points to the excellent points already presented by Dr. White in his earlier post (link). You may recall that Dr. Heiser wrote: "If these elohim are humans, why are they sentenced to die “like humans”? A clear contrast is intended by both the grammar and structure of the Hebrew text (Prinsloo; Handy, “Sounds”)."
Dr. Heiser is referring to Psalm 82.
Psalm 82 is a warning to unjust judges. God is the judge of judges, just as he is elsewhere described as the King of kings and Lord of lords. (1 Timothy 6:15; Revelation 17:14; and Revelation 19:16)

10/01/2009 - James WhiteA decade ago I preached on James 2, a text often cited by those promoting works-salvation systems. Of course, they always say we have "no response" to the text, but, they have also rarely ever taken the time to actually hear how we understand and honor this text. For those who wish a written discussion, please see the lengthy exegesis offered in The God Who Justifies.
