    I had the pleasure of attending the Forgotten Gospel Conference this weekend. It was such a breath of fresh air to my soul. I loved this interview with Ilaria Ramelli and am thankful for the work she is doing. Peter mentioned that she has not been physically well, so please pray for her healing and that she would be strengthened in spirit while she is afflicted.

    Thanks for posting. Would love a transcript of this.

    It’s so interesting and encouraging (and Peter mentioned as much in regards to the spectrum of traditions) to see a Reformed pastor and a Catholic historian/theologian – where there are significant differences – arriving at a similiar telos ….that grace is boundless.

  3. Wow, I absolutely loved this interview – Amazing! I hope and pray that Dr. Ramelli heals as soon as possible. Someone watching this interview though not catching the first part, might think there’s some kind of Freudian Psychoanalysis going on –

    “Unt vat du yoo zink aboat zee ‘Apokatastatis’ – do zees fears com from di Vather or di Mutter?”
    – Ha!

    A truly genuine sense of Joy and Peace really does comes though in this discussion, especially when we take to heart that God will be ‘All in All’ in the fullness of time.



  4. Also concerning “Gerald Schroeder” This looks to be fascinating –

    Wiki –
    His works frequently cite Talmudic, Midrashic and medieval commentaries on Biblical creation accounts, such as commentaries written by the Jewish philosopher Nachmanides. Among other things, Schroeder attempts to reconcile a six-day creation as described in Genesis with the scientific evidence that the world is billions of years old using the idea that the perceived flow of time for a given event in an expanding universe varies with the observer’s perspective of that event. He attempts to reconcile the two perspectives numerically, calculating the effect of the stretching of space-time, based on Einstein’s general relativity.

    Namely, that from the perspective of the point of origin of the Big Bang, according to Einstein’s equations of the ‘stretching factor’, time dilates by a factor of roughly 1,000,000,000,000, meaning one trillion days on earth would appear to pass as one day from that point, due to the stretching of space. When applied to the estimated age of the universe at 13.8 billion years, from the perspective of the point of origin, the universe today would appear to have just begun its sixth day of existence, or if the universe is 15 billion years old from the perspective of earth, it would appear to have just completed its sixth day. Antony Flew, an academic philosopher who promoted atheism for most of his adult life indicated that the arguments of Gerald Schroeder had influenced his decision to become a deist.

    His theories to reconcile faith and science have drawn some criticism from both religious and non-religious scientists, and his works remain controversial in scientific circles.’
