    Right - infant baptism is nonsense, and so is a some of what those who affirm it say about the covenants. But a lot of the stuff you and I believe is equally nonsense, and we just don't know it....

    I guess I believe in the first position outlined in the document, as I believe that God does extend the option of forgiveness to people, in this life, on the grounds of his mercy. I deny that God...

    Glenn, I honestly didn't intend to mis-represent your position. You said, "What is the proper BMI requirement of the Holy Spirit?" - I thought you were saying it was ridiculous for the Holy Spirit to...

    Correlation is not causation, but it often indicates causation. Again, to deny that smoking significantly increases the risk of cancer, is willful ignorance on your part. Smoking is bad for you. It...

    The apostle Paul did occupy at least some of his time correcting the Corinthian church for their moral failings, and pastors are to reprove, rebuke and encourage with all long-suffering and doctrine....

    Ridiculous. That's like saying, "Glen, go ahead and commit adultery to the glory of God." Foolishness.

    Smoking causes cancer. Anyone telling you to smoke is being very unloving indeed. It shows...

    Gluttony just means eating to excess. We should keep our eating in moderation. We shouldn't make food an idol.

    Right, I was assuming that it was a bit more than the occasional pipe.

    But, even with your own analogy, Brandan, you'd have to admit that eating too many hamburgers can be bad for you. Gluttony is...

    Hi Razor,

    I agree with everybody else here..... this pastor seems to be off his rocker....

    But, I have to say, I don't agree with smoking. The evidence is pretty much in on smoking: its bad for...

    A neo-hyper Calvinist? Whaaaaaa?

    What is that, Bob?

    This is a reply to both Bob and Brandon.

    Hi Brandon, what you said on eternal justification sounded very good to me, and if that's what eternal justification means, I believe I accept the...

    I guess the short answer to you on this one is: when it comes to the matter of imputed righteousness, my opinion is still being formed. On some issues, I feel I have a fully formed opinion. Take, for...

    I see. I believe scripture clearly teaches that God's people are created anew in this life. They are a new creation. And, the new man of righteousness is a spiritual man, in this world. Scripture...

    Thank you for the response Brandan, it gave me something to think about.

    I agree that "made" (G4160 poieo) implies the imputation of our sins to Christ. But if you look again at the Greek, you'll...

    Hello Vandim, thank you for your response.

    Do you believe there is a difference between being imputed (counted/reckoned) righteous, and being made righteous?

    With respect to 1 Cor. 1:30-31 and...
  17. Thanks for your comments Bob. Yes, I agree that...

    Thanks for your comments Bob. Yes, I agree that imputation is certainly in the Bible. I personally don't mind the word "righteousness" as opposed to "rightness" because, in English, "righteousness"...

    Thanks Vadim! As it happens, I greatly appreciate the theory of quantum in-determinism. I basically believe it is yet another proof of God. When they say "event A happened completely at random" all...

    I'm claiming the phrase, "imputed righteousness of Christ" or even just "the righteousness of Christ" is not used by Paul when explaining justification. Paul speaks of imputed righteousness. He uses...
  21. What does the imputed righteousness of Christ mean to you?

    I don't think I've ever heard two people describe the imputed righteousness of Christ the same way. Its not a phrase that exists in the Bible. So, my question is, how would you describe it? What does...

    Is the universe mechanical?

    I basically believe that the universe is a mechanism, in both the material and the spiritual realms. There are material mechanisms and there are spiritual mechanisms. God alone exists outside the...

    When we trust in God, we're trusting that in a being who is all powerful, whose...

    Thank you for opening this important subject. As it happens, Bob's expression 'without means' caught my attention too. However, I take a different view to you on what regeneration is, so I'd like to...

    I'm always inclined towards the attitude which says, "Don't give over the lexicon." In other words, I hate it when people who are in the right, accept terms for themselves that make them look bad. It...
