  1. Re: The precise meaning of the Salvation of "All Israel"

    Your Post has absolutely highlighted for me, once again, the utter FOLLY of labelling. I have tried very hard not to put a "tag" on my Soteriological position because it tends to put up immediate...
  2. Re: The precise meaning of the Salvation of "All Israel"

    Yes, I DO understand, actually. Thank you for your post.

    I am sure now that my current position is the correct one based on more coherent and well-integrated EXEGESIS together with a better...
  3. Re: The precise meaning of the Salvation of "All Israel"

    After several months away from this forum, I have with much DETERMINED DELIBERATION completely re-read the posts in this thread and I can see where I got terribly confused in my understanding of the...
  4. Re: Amillennial futurism asserted and dispensationalism finally rejected!

    Thanks Milt for your observations.

    I can agree with you, of course, that in the overall scheme of things there are probably more important issues and challenges facing the EKKLESIA. I understand...
  5. Re: Amillennial futurism asserted and dispensationalism finally rejected!

    I now return to the MAIN PURPOSE of this thread which is to demonstrate that the scriptures themselves UNEQUIVOCALLY delineate signs which must precede the ONE, VISIBLE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST. I...
  6. Re: Amillennial futurism asserted and dispensationalism finally rejected!

    I thank you for your understanding reply here and I am pleasantly grateful for it.

    I did not expect you to agree with my STATED VIEWS and DECLARED SOTERIOLOGY; however, you have allowed me to...
  7. Re: Amillennial futurism asserted and dispensationalism finally rejected!

    I had not long finished saying that I am NOT an Arminian or a Calvinist, than the thought occurred to me that although theological "labelling" is not an entirely attractive thing to me, if "push...
  8. Re: Amillennial futurism asserted and dispensationalism finally rejected!

    I thought I was finished with this site. However, integrity demands that I clarify a CRUCIAL issue.

    "So for anyone who wants to keep on believing...
  9. Re: Amillennial futurism asserted and dispensationalism finally rejected!

    On reflection, it has occured to me that my views are poles apart from that espoused at Pnet. Also,my views on Soteriology remain unchanged and are similar to those held by Dr Norman Geisler in his...
  10. Amillennial futurism asserted and dispensationalism finally rejected!

    After some 30 years of agonising and wrestling over the nuances of meaning in Matthew 24, I must conclude that this is one of the MOST DIFFICULT passages - in my view - in the whole of scripture.

    Hi Jimmy,

  12. Re: The extent, way and manner in which God DIRECTLY purposes evil and HINDERS the go

    Hi Aaron,

    When I first read your INITIAL post in this thread it appeared that you were making a SERIOUS attempt to engage in the complexities of DIVINE CAUSALITY (which is what this thread is...
  13. Re: The extent, way and manner in which God DIRECTLY purposes evil and HINDERS the go

    Thanks Bob,

    I appreciate the CLARITY you have brought here and the excellent word study.

    You have also provided a COHERENT articulation on why God is NEVER ACCOUNTABLE. You state:

    "God is...
  14. Re: The extent, way and manner in which God DIRECTLY purposes evil and HINDERS the go

    This is an excellent post by Eileen and I have been reflecting on it.

    Eileen Quotes Matthew 26:54 to illustrate the point that in the eyes of God ALL THINGS MUST BE!

    She then writes these...
  15. Re: The extent, way and manner in which God DIRECTLY purposes evil and HINDERS the go

    In this post Milt states:

    "Either by punishment, either by vengeance, or by any reason one can study, very simply put, God does cause evil whether you translate the word as: calamity, displeasure,...
  16. Re: The extent, way and manner in which God DIRECTLY purposes evil and HINDERS the go

    Thank you Calvinator, Eileen, Trav and Kevin,

    I receive your kind affirmation of me as a Brother in the Lord as coming from the lips of God Himself. It is sweet and precious, believe you me.

    It...
  17. Re: The extent, way and manner in which God DIRECTLY purposes evil and HINDERS the go

    Thanks Nicholas,

    God has answered my prayer in the words of your post.

    You give some good and wise advice, I think. You state:

    "There are just some things that must be left alone for the...
  18. Re: The extent, way and manner in which God DIRECTLY purposes evil and HINDERS the go

    Hi Jimmy,

    You conclude your post by asking of me:

    "To hold to your position you have to basically say scripture is not saying what it is saying. There has been much scripture quoted in this...
  19. Re: The extent, way and manner in which God DIRECTLY purposes evil and HINDERS the go

    Hi Calvinator,

    I DO appreciate the KEY and STRATEGIC verses that you are presenting here. They cut to the HEART of this matter and enhance DIALOGUE and true discussion! Thank you!

    You Quote...
  20. Re: The extent, way and manner in which God DIRECTLY purposes evil and HINDERS the go

    Hi Brandon,

    In your response to my post where I asserted that, in my opinion, God would DELIGHT that ALL MEN (not just the Elect, you will understand) bow to His Law and its infinite and righteous...
  21. Re: The extent, way and manner in which God DIRECTLY purposes evil and HINDERS the go

    Hi Kevin,

    You further ask of me:

    "Where are the terms common and grace in the bible, and where does this "love" or "grace" lead for the reprobate?

    I believe with conviction that to use the...
  22. Re: The extent, way and manner in which God DIRECTLY purposes evil and HINDERS the go

    Hi Kevin,

    You ask of me:

    "Can you provide some verses that substantiate the claim that Christ's atonement is sufficient for every single member of the human race, but only effective or...
  23. Re: The extent, way and manner in which God DIRECTLY purposes evil and HINDERS the go

    Hi Milt,

    Your style and SENSE OF HUMOUR is utterly unique. You humorously "pontificate":

    "Well, I forewarned you! (Sorry if I got out of my style, perhaps is the old man in me, or I am just...
