    Welsh Tract Society and Unitarianism

    I read through some of Ed Vrell's book and noticed he really laid into the Welsh Tract Society (for being anti-triniarian - or anti-trinitarian gnostic trash as Ed calls them!), and later this week,...

    Agree with you Vadim. Duty faith is another gospel. It's not the Good news of salvation.

    That's my conclusion as well Vadim. As a denomination goes, they're still probably one of the best. I don't think I could regularly attend one of their congregations.

    BTW, I'm headed to Ashland...

    Sounds good to me Bob.. Did you write the attachment? I haven't read it yet, but before I do I will lay my thoughts down here... I believe that the atonement was necessary ONLY because God wanted it...

    I started using the term hyper free-gracer last year to describe what I am.

    From our former contributor and dearly departed sister Eileen:

    Adultery and smoking is not the same thing. Smoking a cigar does not cause cancer. Glenn knows what to do if he’s a regenerate believer. Nobody needs to babysit him.

    John, I wasn't making fun of you. But I was simply pointing out the absurdity of defining gluttony as "eating to excess". This is no way meant to be an attack upon you, so please don't take it...

    Eating hamburgers is bad also especially if the meat is charred (known carcinogen). Smoking a cigarette, cigar, or occasional pipe isn’t going to kill anyone.

    Jesus saved all kinds of people, even smokers! I'm reminded of this article written years ago on "regional sanctification": https://www.pristinegrace.org/media.php?id=296

    I think Bob is referring to the fact that the definition of a hyper-calvinist has changed over time.

    Thank you Bob. While I disagree with Vadimís position that this is more than semantics (at least as it pertains to us) I do agree we probably shouldnít use constraining words to describe God. ...

    One more final note, here in Missouri, where I grew up, we would use English very improperly. For example, I'd ask my mom, "Can we go to the park today?" I wasn't asking in a FORMAL sense. I was...

    Hi Vadim,

    I understand your frustration, but that's how we talk over here in America. The phrase "I just can't - I just can't" is one that I and others use often. But the real meaning is "I...

    a) He acts out of the constraint of His own nature, He cannot do otherwise!


    I read this to say, He acts according to His will, He will not do otherwise!


    b) Likewise, God is free only to...

    I suppose it’s a matter of will not instead of can not. God CAN do anything. HE IS ABSOLUTELY FREEE. There are no constraints. But we know HE WILL NOT do certain things. This is a matter of...

    Bottom line, God counts His people as righteous because of Christ - and HIS work - not upon anything being performed within the individual. This quote by John Gill sums up what I believe.:

    It is by faith that the elect are reckoned righteous within THEIR mind (not God's).

    There are four aspects of justification for God's elect.

    I believe after our resurrection, we will have a righteousness imparted to us - and we will no longer have this body of death - we will have a new body and will be incapable of sinning. But as for...
