    God The Father IS The Holy Spirit

    This is a denial of the Holy Spirit as a distinct person. I guess I should have been more clear, but I think you knew what I meant.

    Re: Unitariansm vs. The Trinity

    It should be pointed out that Bryan is not only denying the deity of the Lord Jesus, but he is denying the existance of the Holy Spirit as the person of God.

    I very rarely visit the Predestinarian forum anymore. I had the great misfortune of visiting today while this topic was on the front page.

    Re: Description of Supralapsarianism

    Hi Carol,

    I have struggled with the same type of questions for as long as I've believed that God is sovereign over all things. In fact, I still struggle often (like just today, in reading...

    Poll: Re: Do you believe in duty faith?

    Duty faith discussions are confusing (to me at least) because the definition varies from person to person and article to article. In my understanding, men are certainly legally and morally obligated...

    If the revelation of the gospel comes by way of inspired Scripture (Bob says, "the gospel as revealed in the Bible"), then I believe that one would be illogical to turn around and judge the...

    Re: Sanctification

    Hi Greg,

    The Greek noun in question is hagiasmos. The verb "sanctify" is hagiazo. As you can see, they are clearly related. Both of these are also closely related to "holy", which is hagios. ...

    Re: Sanctification

    The believer is set apart from the penalty of sin in Christ. Great...

    Thanks Milt - great point about the subjunctive mood. Even so, John is associating love with deeds, and that was the major point I wanted to make with that verse. Also, I absolutely agree that...

    Hi Bob,

    I agree that we should examine the motive, and that external works can be duplicated by non-believers! Though, that does not present an argument against works being used, in the believer,...
