A Temporal Rift

Tuesday, August 30, 2016
For every one day in Heaven that passes, one thousand days pass on earth.  How many days would have to pass on earth to equal one thousand years in Heaven?

Sincerely,
All About The Math

Dear All About The Math,

If we were simply doing math, the answer would be 365 million days… but this subject isn’t about arithmetic.  You have misunderstood 2 Pet 3:8.  That verse isn’t discussing a literal time-delay between Heaven and Earth; it is addressing the patience of God (as seen in the following verse – 2 Pet 3:9).  God is patient with mankind and is patiently awaiting the proper time to end this world (2 Pet 3:10) because He wants everyone to have the opportunity to obey Christ.

Big Boned - Part 2

Monday, August 29, 2016
This is a follow-up to the "Big Boned" question I asked.  Why was that a bad thing then that the people were together?  Is it like when the Jews were only to wed people from their tribes, no one outside of that?

Sincerely,

Dear Average Height,

We aren’t completely sure what you are asking, so if we don’t answer your question, feel free to e-mail us at askyourpreacher@mvchurchofchrist.org, and we’ll try and clarify things via e-mail.

We think that what you are asking is why it was wrong for the Nephilim to intermarry with other people in Gen 6:4.  The answer is – it wasn’t wrong.  Gen 6:4 is simply stating that these larger people intermarried with the normal-sized people in the days of Noah.  The Bible isn’t saying it was wrong; it is simply stating what happened.  It is, and always has been, perfectly fine for tall people to marry short people.
