Re: For Whom Would You Vote?

As the demographic makeup of America changes, I suspect we will see more and more "progressive" candidates in office. Which is unfortunate, for Libertarian minded guys like myself. My friends on the left seem to think that government is the answer to every societal ill. Add in the fact that many of ...

Re: Hell

Well said Steve.

Why should anyone feel the need to be dogmatic on something that the bible is ambiguous about? Suppose that Steve did "take a side", then what? Would anything really change? I doubt it...

Re: Salvation: 1 The Formula

Paidon, As you know, I have long been puzzled by your view (rejection of imputed righteousness, which seems to be plainly taught by Paul). You write: God isn't interested in our having a POSITIONAL righteousness, but only in our possession of ACTUAL righteousness. As I understand imputed righteousn...

Re: Salvation: 1 The Formula

What do you mean by "righteous standing"? If you mean some sort of "imputed righteousness" or "white robe of righteousness," so that when God looks at me He doesn't see my sin but Christ's righteousness, then I reply that this is Fundamentalist and Protestant error, a total misrepresentation of sal...

Re: Salvation: 1 The Formula

Do you feel that God is going to send you through "cleansing fires" to purge you? ... everyone will be salted with fire. (Mark 9:49) Hi Paidion, Thanks for the quick reply! I am assuming from your answer that you do not feel like you have attained a completely righteous standing before God, please ...

Re: Salvation: 1 The Formula

Hi guys, I would like to add my thoughts to this discussion. I have always sought to understand exactly what salvation is and what it entails. I do not claim that I have it all figured out, so I am always eager to learn more. While I admit that it seems to be a very nuanced subject, the one thing th...

Re: Debating an Atheist

I think you are misusing the term 'metaphysics'. Metaphysics is a branch of philosophy having to deal with 'being' and existence; ontology. You're mistaken. Metaphysics is derived from the Latin word metaphysica , meaning beyond the physical . It deals with things that are beyond our senses, so it ...

Re: Debating an Atheist

Scientists think nature is uniform, to the extent it is (not all things always uniform), based on evidence. For example with carbon dating, it is known that the ratio of carbon in the air is not uniform due to nuclear testing. But we have no reason to suspect the speed of light changes (other than ...
