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

    St. Nicholas:

    I had written a longer reply in which I quoted you and made direct responses to your various statements. Providentially, several hours ago when I clicked "submit reply" it asked me...
  2. Re: The extent, way and manner in which God DIRECTLY purposes evil and HINDERS the go

    In the book of Ezekiel we also find language regarding the wicked very similar to that found in the Psalms.

    Ezekiel 21:29 while they see for you false visions, while they divine lies for you - to...
  3. Re: The extent, way and manner in which God DIRECTLY purposes evil and HINDERS the go

    The steak is the objective reconciliation accomplished by Christ on the cross. It is what it is regardless if people deny it just as steak remains steak even if people say it is not steak. Remind me...
  4. Re: The extent, way and manner in which God DIRECTLY purposes evil and HINDERS the go

    I don't know why my short responses and questions require such a lengthy answer unless you are attempting to attack the imaginary wildboar that exists in your mind and not what I actually wrote.

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

    This is just the standard enthusiast answer. I think people often confuse their own indigestion with the working of the Holy Spirit. There are countless sects and cults founded upon this idea that...
  6. Re: The extent, way and manner in which God DIRECTLY purposes evil and HINDERS the go

    So does that mean that Ezekiel was a reprobate or that God was a reprobate? I'm talking about actual texts and you are retreating into man-made system. The Scriptures speak of the wicked turning and...
  7. Re: The extent, way and manner in which God DIRECTLY purposes evil and HINDERS the go

    Yet, He also says He loves them and desires that they turn from their sin.

    Psalm 5:5The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.

    Unless you have stopped...
  8. Re: The extent, way and manner in which God DIRECTLY purposes evil and HINDERS the go

    I really don't think I did. You were trying to prove that the "wicked" are forever under God's wrath and therefore are not loved by God. I provided Scriptural examples where the wicked receive God's...
  9. Re: The extent, way and manner in which God DIRECTLY purposes evil and HINDERS the go

    This makes the assumption that love and hatred are completely incompatible. I also think it is the wrong way to read the text. The purpose is that each person read the text and realize that they are...
  10. Re: The extent, way and manner in which God DIRECTLY purposes evil and HINDERS the go

    I understand what you are saying but the verse above do not teach what you are teaching. You are starting with the presupposition that if a person is justified objectively then God will give them...
  11. Re: The extent, way and manner in which God DIRECTLY purposes evil and HINDERS the go

    Rom 3:24, (NASB), being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus;

    28 After this, Jesus, knowing that all things had already been accomplished, to fulfill...
  12. Re: The extent, way and manner in which God DIRECTLY purposes evil and HINDERS the go

    There is nothing deficient in the atonement or the food. Steak is steak regardless of whether or not you believe it is steak.



    I agree.



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

    3. For all human beings who are and will be in heaven or hell.



    There is no deficiency in Christ's death. If I give food to a homeless person and the homeless person either doesn't believe it...
  14. Re: The extent, way and manner in which God DIRECTLY purposes evil and HINDERS the go

    The death of Christ is definitely effective and forever.
  15. Re: The extent, way and manner in which God DIRECTLY purposes evil and HINDERS the go

    Calvinator:

    I believe the "if" statements to be true, but I'm guessing you don't--so there is disagreement but no point in going round and round about it. It is interesting though--most Arminians...
  16. Re: The extent, way and manner in which God DIRECTLY purposes evil and HINDERS the go

    I completely agree :D



    Amen!:D
  17. Re: Comparison of Jesus' baptism in the 4 gospels

    Whammer:

    It's not as if St. Nicholas and I are usually buddy, buddy and that he comes running to my defense all the time. Generally speaking he disagrees with me and has used some pretty harsh...
  18. Re: Comparison of Jesus' baptism in the 4 gospels

    I regard the book James as part of the antilegoummena. I do not regard it as being on the same level as the Gospels or the letters of Paul. I do regard it as Scripture which can only be interpreted...
  19. Re: Comparison of Jesus' baptism in the 4 gospels

    Paul was not writing primarily about future writings but of past writings--probably the Old Testament was in view. But Paul's statement that all Scripture is God-breathed does apply to all of...
  20. Re: Comparison of Jesus' baptism in the 4 gospels

    Your questions are based on your interpretation of when John knew he would baptize Jesus and when John knew that Jesus was the Messiah so it can hardly be said that time has nothing to do with it.
  21. Re: Comparison of Jesus' baptism in the 4 gospels

    This is one of the irritations I have with books that try to arrange the Bible in chronological order. It can serve some use but is no substitute for the books as the appear in their original form....

    Re: No Imputed Righteousness In Augustine

    I apologize, I misspoke or miswrote or whatever. But my point was simply that Augustine was not thinking in those catagories or dealing with those particular issues that people on both sides of the...

    Re: Are Lay Ministers "Only Playing Church"?

    I'm not sure that there is a conflict between these two statements. They appear to be dealing with two slightly different issues.

    Re: No Imputed Righteousness In Augustine

    I just don't think that Augustine was conceiving of justification as a separate thing or using it to refer to the same thing we are. It's a bit like trying to take what the Belgic Confession speaks...

    Re: Confusion In the Trems Used

    I would have to look at the context of each of these passages individually to determine if the translators chose the best English word in each of these passages but to suggest that a particular Greek...
