    Re: The Epistemological Work of the Holy Spirit

    I never said the Holy Spirit was not the person who raises the dead to life! What I said was that the Holy Spirit does not do this in a vacuum. There must be a previous understanding of the gospel or...
  2. Re: What Havoc The One Covenant of Grace Establishes

    BTW Brian, who sees some glimpses of progress in redemptive history misses out on two crucial points. He states: "We have the direct authority of the New Testament for believing that the covenant of...
  3. Re: Letter of Departure to all the members of Grace Baptist Chapel in St. Louis, MO

    The wrath of God will come at the end of time, but the kindness of God is still required of the saints. Luke 6 still stands. I never said that it was grace, although God allows gifts to the...

    Re: Mean, Harsh and Arrogant? Aboslutely!

    The fruits of the spirit are not mean harsh and arrogant. That does not mean that people cannot engage in debate. But the Spirit breeds certain kind feelings, and it is a gift of God.

    Re: Tobias Crisp’s View of Christ Made Sin

    Bill, I agree. But it is obvious by His words that he felt separated. I never believed that He was actually separated. The concept of one God means what it implies. No separation.
  6. Re: Letter of Departure to all the members of Grace Baptist Chapel in St. Louis, MO

    I don't see what the big deal is Brandon. If there are people who are elect, it is obvious that there are people who are passed by. They are passed by on purpose. They were not the ones loved from...
  7. Re: Letter of Departure to all the members of Grace Baptist Chapel in St. Louis, MO

    They may say you are mean harsh and arrogant because even the Lord takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked.

    However, I don't support those folks for their Arminian tendencies either. My...

    Re: The Epistemological Work of the Holy Spirit

    Joe said, "If the soil is not prepared before hand, you could preach 10000 sermons to a person that will have little if any effect at all."

    I do not disagree with this at all Joe. But, when the...

    Sorry, I meant Brian....not Greg.
  10. Re: What Havoc The One Covenant of Grace Establishes

    Paul was called lawless by the circumcision. That is ok. I have big shoulders, and I can bear that brand. With pride. The law of Christ will establish true holiness. With a change of priesthood there...
  11. Re: What Havoc The One Covenant of Grace Establishes

    Bill I would say that law preaching and hell preaching are preparitory preachings that are not used by the apostles. Except, hell warnings do seem to be given by Christ, as a doctrine probably,...
  12. Re: Covenant theology and Predestination Revisited

    Those distinctions make sense to me. As long as one states that the three are all essential to the salvation of the elect, and that none are optional, these distinctions are helpful.
  13. Re: What Havoc The One Covenant of Grace Establishes

    Except for the following statement, you sound like a New Covenant Theologian: "It is more purely evangelical. Even the New Testament, as we have seen, contains a legal element, it reveals the law...

    Re: Tobias Crisp’s View of Christ Made Sin

    All I said Gideon, is that Christ had a sense of separation. I take Him at His word. But to say that He ceased to be the eternal God is not what I would support at all, ever. Jesus Christ is the...

    Re: The Other Side of the Coin!

    I don't mean to say that faith is the basis for imputed righteousness. Christ is the basis for righteousness, but true faith is a gift of God, so that it is not a work of man. I understand that...

    Re: The Effects of the "Welfare" State

    And neither were the people, the working poor and the old in NO were asking for a lifetime handout Brandon. They were asking for help in a crisis, something the government was unwilling to offer. And...

    Re: The Other Side of the Coin!

    I realize that some say that faith does not establish righteousness. They believe that regeneration is not tied to faith, and in this sense they are "hardshell". They believe that faith is a result...
  18. Re: God's Will to Justify His People IS the Justification of Them

    I would agree with you that God does see these as having been completed. My only concern is that someone could say that they don't then have to be played out in time. But yes, God does see even the...
  19. Re: God's Will to Justify His People IS the Justification of Them

    Brandon, this is my view. The decree will and must stand and be fulfilled. But it must be fulfilled in this life. So, the eternal justification of the elect is an unshaken and certain decree. It is...

    Re: Tobias Crisp’s View of Christ Made Sin

    Jesus was not made into a sinner on the cross. Sin was not infused into Him. If we read the account of Christ's suffering on the cross he was still doing good, promising the thief on the cross, etc....

  22. Re: God's Will to Justify His People IS the Justification of Them

    Brandon, you have made an interesting statement. However I have some questions. It is true that in Romans 8 Paul says the elect are justified, and glorified in the decree of God. However, that means...

    Re: The Law of Moses and the Law of Christ

    I agree with that statement. An example is John Calvin. I have read in countless places that he was not a covenant theologian. However, I believe that just because he used different terminology does...
