    Re: What Now?

    Never just study and be waiting. Read Paul's letter to the Thessalonians. He is very hard on them for doing the exact same thing you are wondering about Mary. Go and do something for the Lord. ...
  3. Re: Can We Discern God's Sovereign Will in Massive Natural Disasters?

    I actually never heard it put that wrath was vicarious or substitutionary. I have heard His death is, but not God's wrath..
  4. Re: Can We Discern God's Sovereign Will in Massive Natural Disasters?

    Perhaps there is a distinction that must be made when speaking of the wrath of God towards a person. To say His wrath will never come upon an elect cannot possibly be true when we confess that...
  5. Poll: Re: Does God Ever Impute Sin to the Elect in Christ?

    In post 13, I need to make a correction. I stated:

    Just as Christ was the object of both Love and wrath on the cross did not make Gos immutable, then neither can the double imputation of sin...
  6. Poll: Re: Does God Ever Impute Sin to the Elect in Christ?

    Bob, we die because of sin. We do not 'experientially' die. As I said before, your 'doctrine' is very very close to denying original sin and does deny imputed sin of Adam.

    Please exegete this...
  7. Poll: Re: Does God Ever Impute Sin to the Elect in Christ?

    It all depends on how you translate impute. I believe in your myopic narrow translation one can say no. But in the broadest acceptable understanding of the word logizomi, then yes, there is a...

    Re: Warning Passages

    I agree. None the less, God has no pleasure, no favorable disposition towards the same lot who perish.

    Of course. I was just waiting for others since I started the thread. I will answer by close of day.

    Specifically this verse...

    Re: Warning Passages

    This fits #2 in my OP. It is a mixed congregation. Wheat and Tares. You notice the writers shift from the third to the second person. But, beloved, we are convinced of better things concerning...

    Bob, I did not have 3 specific examples in mind. I think that all could be lumped into a group that speaks of conditionalism. My 3 answers were just general statements regarding warning passages as...

    Warning Passages

    I do not believe the warning passages of scripture have been discussed here in a while. There is no need to look at them again as a whole, since they all present the same argument. So what are the...

    Piper is once again spot on in some areas and not in others. He has always affirmed this. I believe he wrote the same thing about Katrina, I may be wrong, but I vaguely remember reading something...

    Read these people last will and testaments. It amazes me how much of God they spoke about and His providence.

    I never looked at the encounters with the Pharisees as debates, but I may be mistaken. Would you consider when paul preached till midnight in troas is was a debate? The word dialegomai can mean...

    Poll: Re: Is debating doctrines is profitless?

    The irony is Scripture does not show any examples of debates. At least I am unaware of any. The biblical witness shows proclamation. I am not sure how we can use Scripture as a guide for debating....

  18. Re: Comparison of Jesus' baptism in the 4 gospels

    The problem Bryan is having with this is because of not looking at the different Greek words used to speak of knowing or seeing.

    I knew that. Remember it is not the 'world' I am against, it is your definition of the world without locality that is error, hence the stipulation.

    You are wrong in your answer though. You said we cannot tell who are the tares and who are the wheat, yet the parable says the 'servants' doulos, did notice them yet we still commanded to not pull...

    Since tares will not be present in Heaven, this is about the Kingdom of God on earth. I am the one using 10 commentaries and exegetical studies of the words to determine meaning. Not some anti...
