  • Re: OT: Kindle Paper White vs iPad Mini for reading purposes

    [quote user="Filipe Moreira"] My question for those that own a Kindle Paper White is: would it help with my eyes strains or is the change to a e-ink screen not noticeable enough? [/quote] I own a Nook Simple touch, which was on sale and only $50. The e-ink display is far superior for reading than my Android tablets, Nook HD+ and my wife's iPad mini

    [quote user="Divinesoteriology"] The issue with that perspective is the the context is about the son of man arriving or coming, which did not take place in 70 a.d. or in 1843,1844, or in 1914.

Matt 23 begins the prophesy of the temples destruction. Matt 24 spells it out "not one stone left upon another". The rest of the passages tells what would happen BEFORE the fall of the temple. The

    [quote user="Divinesoteriology"] "This is one of the hardest verses in the gospels to interpret." [/quote] No it isn't. It is very clear and plain what it says and what it means. What this commentary SHOULD say is "This is one of the hardest verses in the gospels for dispensationalists to accept."

They had always claimed prior to that it would be "the generation that sees the fig tree", or as they claimed, the generation which saw Israel become
