Combining RR-BB.com into RaptureForums.com

Because it has become insanely difficult to manage a bulletin board these days, the managers of Rapture Ready and Rapture Forums have decided to join our boards together under a software program that is easier to manage. Because RF has their database operating well under an Enforo license, we decided to make Rapture Forums the focal point of a consolidation. Since Chris, the owner of RF, has long experience in running a forum, he can better manage the problems that come with this technology.

If you do not have an account at https://www.raptureforums.com/forums/, please sign up. By the end of November, it will become the forward address of RR-BB.com

  • Welcoming the Stranger

    Reading my study Bible and reading the Greek/Hebrew, I realized that the definition of the word stranger used in Leviticus where this command is first given means “foreigners”/proselyte.

    Reading further and combining historical background, the Israelites were forbidden to mingle with pagan nations.

    Does this shoot down the political narrative that this pertains to immigration?

    Israel was to drive out the pagans, not invite them. This combined with the fact that it refers to proselytes means it would be more covenant related, wouldn’t it?
