Re: Where Is Everybody?

Hey everyone! I just happened to check the forum for the first time in a LONG time, and saw this thread. Life often gets in the way, and plus I don't have as much free time as I used to. I remember a preacher named Zac Poonen teaching me when I was 19 that I should read and study my BIble as much as...

Re: Tensions between the Old Testament and Jesus

Thanks for all the comments, especially Steve and Matt. I've been just reading the gospels for the last year, trying to just steer clear of anything but Jesus. I have definitely seen and learnt more of Christ, and it is true that it appears he confided much in the Old Testament's authenticity. The t...

Tensions between the Old Testament and Jesus

Hi, I have a quick question which I hope will spark a good discussion. I don't understand how Jesus, in Luke 9, could rebuke James and John for wanting to send fire down from heaven. That is, I don't understand it in light of the fact that Elijah specifically said that him bringing down the fire was...

Album Release

Hello brothers and sisters, I have been away from the forum for some time now but I check it occasionally. I wanted to let you all know that my album has been released and you can listen to it for free on my website, soundcloud, or spotify (although the latter two are still processing). If you like ...

James 2:24, Works, and Salvation

James 2:24 I remember when Steve debated Tim Staples and Tim mentioned this verse. How can we really say, as evangelicals, that we are saved by faith alone? I've always explained this verse in that true faith will always express itself in works. But is that just a fancy way of dancing around the fa...

Re: Is it Blasphemous to say that God is the Author of Evil?

I just read this entire thread. Interesting conversation. Hello robbyyoung, nice to meet you. I'm sorry to say that I am also in agreement with these contrary opinions expressed against your view, but I'm sure that doesn't shake you from your convictions. Your zeal is admirable. I feel like all of y...

Steve's Preterism Debate

Hello everyone, I haven't posted in a very long time but I still peruse the forum every once in a while. I hope you all are well in Jesus. I'm curious if Steve's debate with Don Preston was ever recorded and if I could somehow find it. Some of the questions have been swirling around in my mind latel...

Re: UR Consistent With Libertarian Free Will

I know that it is contrary to our intuition to see that .999... is equal to 1. I think the reason is that our minds cannot comprehend an infinite series of 9s after the decimal point. Our brains insist on there being only a billion or a trillion or "eighty-twelve jillion" nines. In each of those ca...

Re: Calv vs. Arm - Practical Application?

For example, I think I heard somewhere that Calvinists don't give "altar calls". I don't know if that's true of if it has anything to do with Calvinism or Reformed Theology. Gotta go. Most Calvinists I have known are against the idea of altar calls. They are also against the idea of the sinner's pr...

Re: Types, Antitypes, and Universalism

The OT is full of types and shadows of great and important doctrines of the church, and the corresponding antitypes are in the NT. Where, in the OT, do we find any judgement that would be a type for universalism? They all seem to be decidedly against it, with some people saved and others irrevocabl...
