    Re: Seen any billboards lately?

    I saw one in Mustang Ridge advertising a Buckies truck stop in Luling. It said:

    Buckies (and had a picture of a beaver smiling)....Eat Here/ Get Gas....

    It lasted about a month....

    Re: Article: James Exposed

    Well then, James cannot be talking about what you call "devilish faith" as faith differs greatly from a mere acknowledgement of facts. I can acknowledge the fact that gravity (or Christ or THE...

    Re: Article: James Exposed

    You said James refers to "devilish" faith. Devils don't have faith, they know their place. Do you now agree?

    You said James is talking about justification before men and that James is about doing...

    Devils don't have faith. Devils know their place.

    Works is works is works. I don't buy the "faith-law" dichotomy.

    Re: Perseverance of the Saints

    In regards to "backsliding," you should take a look at the lives of David and Samson who were both elect individuals. Human beings are sinners and will remain so until glorification.

    Re: What is God's Purpose for the Church?

    God's purpose in the true ecclesia is the glorification of Himself.

    If what you perceive to be true above is true, then it is occurring for the true ecclesia's benefit (Rom 8:28). Obviously, this...
  12. Re: Can We Discern God's Sovereign Will in Massive Natural Disasters?

    I wasn't aware of that.



    Yep; I always found it to be a strong support of God's grace and sovereignty. Any good we do is a gift of God--yet even though the reprobate may do many good things in...
  13. Re: Can We Discern God's Sovereign Will in Massive Natural Disasters?

    I like the references; I was thinking particularly of this passage in the context of this thread:

    Ecc 9:1 For all this I considered in my heart even to declare all this, that the righteous, and...
  14. Re: Can We Discern God's Sovereign Will in Massive Natural Disasters?

    Yeah, I always was a sucker for a good twelve string...
  15. Re: Can We Discern God's Sovereign Will in Massive Natural Disasters?

    I understand; I guess my thinking was going to the Scriptures that talk about having "tribulation in this world" and not yet having "resisted unto blood." I'm sure my thinking is also influenced by...

    Re: Supralapsarian Studies

    Yes I agree, but even when we speak of a right to left manner of thinking, it implies some sort of order (movement) of thought which-- when speaking of eternity and immutability-- tends to be...

    Re: Supralapsarian Studies

    In pondering the immutability and eternality of God, and after realizing that the entirety of reality was the result of a single thought (decree), I'm trying to get my mind around the non-sequential...
  18. Re: Has God Predestined Any Humans to Salvation Who Don't Hear the Gospel in this Lif

    I agree. The infancy argument (ostensibly) is founded on a scientific idea of physical maturation of the brain and its (theoretical) ability to comprehend sensory input in a rational manner. Since...
  19. Re: Can We Discern God's Sovereign Will in Massive Natural Disasters?

    In regards to natural disasters, I think the difference is a spiritual one. The Lord grants peace to His own regardless of what He has ordained to occur in the natural world: Job 13:15 Though he...
  20. Re: Can We Discern God's Sovereign Will in Massive Natural Disasters?

    Yeah, I don't believe there is a direct correlation between punishment and sin either for the elect; but there are examples of some harsher chastisements (from the world's perspective). In my mind,...
  21. Re: Can We Discern God's Sovereign Will in Massive Natural Disasters?

    Maybe 1Cor 5:4-6, 2 Sam 24:12-16 and Job's experience are relevant here?
  22. Re: Has God Predestined Any Humans to Salvation Who Don't Hear the Gospel in this Lif

    I believe that a knowledge of the truth is the promise of the Spirit to all of God's elect and always thought this a timely experiential event. I haven't studied it in depth because there really...
  23. Re: Has God Predestined Any Humans to Salvation Who Don't Hear the Gospel in this Lif

    I agree! Most people assume that man has to perform something in order to make the gospel effective, but this view excludes by definition elect infants that may be aborted and the intellectually...

    Re: New Covenant/Body of Christ!

    I too agree. How can a natural man recieve the things (truth) of the Spirit--in any age-- apart from the testimony of the Spirit with his own--thereby evidencing His presence (regeneracy)?
