  1. Re: We Do Not Separate God's Decree from the Actual Events of Time

    I'm sorry you dislike the accusation. I'm trying to stress that what the elect inherited from Adam was JUST THE SAME AS THE REPROBATE, hence the need to completely destroy it. I realise you might...
  2. Re: We Do Not Separate God's Decree from the Actual Events of Time

    Yes they (the elect that is) were in Christ - IN CHRIST, but in the flesh before their new birth by the Spirit they were also in Adam, which is why what they inherited from Adam, the sinful fallen...
  3. Re: We Do Not Separate God's Decree from the Actual Events of Time

    Brandan writes in his blog:-



    I quite agree Brandan that an all Sovereign God decrees all the events of time. No doubt about that.

    However, your blog entry would appear to be preciptated...

    Re: Birth Day Greeting's -Ian Potts

    Thanks for the greetings! :)

    I had a nice day but feel amazed at where all the years are going!

    My son Benjamin has his birthday the day before mine (on the 9th) so I tend to play...
  6. Re: God's Will to Justify His People IS the Justification of Them

    May I just add a few thoughts to this interesting discussion? I haven't had time to read the whole thread but I do check 'new posts' at times and noticed the truth of Christ's faith had come up. This...
  7. Re: God's Sovereignty in Hardening Reprobate Hearts

    Brandan,

    Thanks for calling me Brother again. :) I thought things were a bit cool when I read 'Mr. Potts' in your other post...


    I replied simply because the BREVITY of your statement could...
  8. Re: God's Sovereignty in Hardening Reprobate Hearts

    Just want to make a short comment as a parenphesis to this particular discussion, seeing as my name has been mentioned...

    For anyone unfamiliar to this, Brandan is referring to that which was...

    Re: ~Mercy

    Eileen,

    I noticed the comment highlighted by myself in your post above that this will be your last post and visit. I don't know your reasons for 'leaving' but I didn't think such a thing should...
  10. Re: Sin and Righteousness: Imputed or Imparted or Both?

    It has been revealed in the Bible that Christ was "made sin" for us and that He "bore our sins in his own body on the tree". To the degree with which the Lord has revealed to me His TRUTH by His...
  11. Re: Sin and Righteousness: Imputed or Imparted or Both?

    Hello ‘Snark’ – nice to meet you.


    You bring up an important truth, and that may well have been Bunyan’s intention with his analogy. However I was ‘borrowing’ the analogy, not referring to...
  12. Re: Sin and Righteousness: Imputed or Imparted or Both?

    Joe posted the following in the thread about 'mystery' and I think it is worth repeating here...


    I have repeated this, because whatever objections Brandan may have to people dismissing certains...

    Thanks for that Joe. Gill is right, surely?

    Re: Beware of Those who Teach "Mystery"

    Thanks Brandan, I'm glad to hear that.

    Nevertheless do you really disagree with what I wrote about the Trinity and 'hypostatic union' in my last post? Is that the consensus of view from others...

    Re: Beware of Those who Teach "Mystery"

    This 'blog' by Brandan arose I think because I made a comment in a private message to him that the doctrine of the Trinity is a 'mystery' which we cannot fully comprehend. Whether my use of the word...
  16. Re: Sin and Righteousness: Imputed or Imparted or Both?

    If Harald does his research well then he will find that sin is not only legal breaking of God's law. It is that which entered into the world when man fell, and death by sin. It is that evil nature...
  17. Re: Sin and Righteousness: Imputed or Imparted or Both?

    A brief reply to Ray's good point here...

    I fully understand that my position contradicts various writers of the past. I also understand that it can be difficult to grasp for those who have...
  18. Re: Sin and Righteousness: Imputed or Imparted or Both?

    [size=2]To begin with can I say that I am pleased to hear that although ‘Red Beetle’ may find fault with my doctrine he also says that he has heard many good things about me. The Bible tells us to...
  19. Re: Sin and Righteousness: Imputed or Imparted or Both?

    I said earlier that I would not discuss this matter further. But as I’ve found before on this forum I have received replies and comments from several quarters, much of them quite critical.

    I...
  20. Re: Sin and Righteousness: Imputed or Imparted or Both?

    Red Beetle,

    Sorry, but no, I won't offer you any further explanation. What I have stated is scriptural and true. Whether you believe or not is another matter. I perceive from your posts that you...
  21. Re: Sin and Righteousness: Imputed or Imparted or Both?

    But imputation, whether 'real' or 'forensic' is still a reckoning isn't it? You think Biblical imputation is 'real reckoning'. But that stops short of what 2 Cor 5:21 says: "made sin". Not "reckoned...
  22. Re: Sin and Righteousness: Imputed or Imparted or Both?

    Well, I’m wrong about many things ‘Red Beetle’. I don’t deny that. My fallible, frail mind gets much wrong, and I daily fear being led aside from the truth by many influences, particularly the...
  23. Re: Sin and Righteousness: Imputed or Imparted or Both?

    The quotes from Don Fortner which Brandan has posted do not present the full picture of what he states on this matter. Here is an extract from the article "He hath made him sin" by Fortner which I...

    Re: Head Coverings

    Fair question.

    Some don't. Some say the passage refers to women in prayer and therefore that they should cover their heads when praying, wherever they are. Trouble with that position is where do...

    Re: Head Coverings

    I beg to differ Brandan. :)

    Long hair for women, short for men is quite common among many people. It doesn't stand out in any way. I could go to any gathering and see such differences, and I'd...
