Re: Should Trump Be Removed from Office

A bit off topic, but I wonder what views folks have of the "government" being on his shoulder. I dont follow. Innumerable men and women have had the gov't on their shoulder. Political plots and wrangling interests me no more than sports (not that there's anything wrong with being interesting in tho...

Re: Preaching in Acts and Christology

So, I did distinguish between "son" as in paternity vs. "son" as in title. That He was the son in the paternal sense is not in question (after all, He was conceived by the HS and not Joseph) -- the question is whether the title has more meaning than that and the only place that is addressed clearly...

Re: Should Trump Be Removed from Office

If you want to know the perspective of someone who doesn't follow politics, here it is: 1. I am generally saddened by Christians who get make these kinds of grand political pronouncements. I think it's a waste of time at best, and that it does more harm than good in promoting the gospel. 2. Nothing ...

Re: Preaching in Acts and Christology

I do think that Jesus, as the word/logos, was with God and was God and had glory with God (all references from John) before His incarnation. I also don't think Romans 1:4 necessarily means what you say it means, if you mean that He was not the Son of God before His resurrection. Jesus was referred t...

Re: Preaching in Acts and Christology

I do think it's fair to use the silence to help determine what was most important to the apostles and their scribes. Surely more was said than what was recorded, but it doesn't seem like key facts would be left out of every sermon. Looking at the 8 theological statements that the New Testament says ...

Re: suicide

As Homer said, please seek some local help if you can. We'll continue to pray for you.

... and I don't know the answer either, and it just doesn't seem to me like the important thing to think about.

Re: Trinities podcast

Dale Tuggy and Chris Date debated the divinity of Jesus a few days ago https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LSve-Aln16Y I didn't find it very informative, but it was long, and I may have been inattentive during some parts (especially the Q&A). Chris Date seemed to be going for some more obscure arguments...

Re: Where Is Everybody?

Yeah. Forums are much better for developing and tracking arguments and ideas, I think, but the majority has spoken!

Re: Our “spirits”?

I reckon we have or are a spirit and/or soul, so I'm a dualist, I guess. Other than that, I haven't really thought about it. I found Colossians 2:5 interesting: "For though I am absent in body, yet I am with you in spirit, rejoicing to see your good order and the firmness of your faith in Christ." W...

Re: Trinities podcast

I've listened to 6 or so random episodes, not all related closely to trinitarianism. It's often interesting and informative. But is there some episode where he simply describes his view of the Father, the Son, and the Spirit - how they're the same and how they're different? Frankly, I can't really t...
