Re: Recent thoughts on Job...

Steve, I looked up the passages to which you referred in (Matt.4:1, Mark 1:12, and Luke 4:1). These do indeed seem to say that God led Jesus out into the desert with the purpose of being tempted by the devil, which suggests that God used the devil as a tool for accomplishing His purposes in His bel...

Re: Recent thoughts on Job...

But I struggle, specifically, with the idea that Satan requested specific permission to do specific things to Job. Job is possibly the oldest book of the Old Testament. It seems that there was a development both in the understanding of God's character as well as Satan's. For some reason, David felt...

Re: Answering a correspondent about full-preterism

Anyways, I just felt like sharing this. (Totally surprised me). But at the same time, the number of full preterists seems to be growing. Hi RickC, Consistent Full Preterism is making an argument. Here’s what’s currently being discussed: DeCosta & Miano Interview (Time 1:24:08): https://youtu.be/tUf...

Jesus had Incorrect Opinions?

Hi Singalphile, I think it would be helpful if we had an example to the thought presented. If Jesus is God, He cannot deny Himself or can He? If not, He was no more ignorant of Himself than The Father. Therefore, whatever limitations He had they cannot deny or contradict His oneness with The Father....

Re: The Pat Answer to the Election Question

Well, I'll answer from the "openess" point of view. God did not know in advance that the person would not become a Christian. For if He had known in advance that this was the case, then the person COULD NOT have become a Christian. For if the person HAD of his own free will chosen to become a Chris...

Re: The Pat Answer to the Election Question

I took the time to consider Jeremiah 3:7 and found that there are a number of translations that differ considerably from the quote above: ... I do not see how Jeremiah 3:7 can be of any support to your position. Hi Homer, I believe you are correct concerning Jer 3:7 . In its context, this passage c...

Re: THE 16 COMMANDMENTS

Hi Paidion, There seems to be a misunderstanding here that causes a contradiction in scripture, for example Deut. 6:13 and 10:20 , as well as its practical application in 1 Kings 2:23 and Jeremiah 12:16 all demand the opposite of what your saying. Nehemia Gordon is a Hebrew scholar who solved the Gr...

Re: Was Joseph a Calvinist?

Hi Paidion, God is the author of righteous judgments, not sin. 1 Kings 22:20-23 & 2 Thess. 2:10-12 are examples of God turning people over to their own transgressions for judgment. God's sovereignty on how He exercises judgment is of course His business, but these two texts clearly establishes who's...

Re: Was Joseph a Calvinist?

Hi Matt, As always, thanks for your patience and fine analysis of the discussion. You stated: In regards to "a"... I agree that God can prevent or allow evil. The Isaiah 45:7 passage, it seems to me, is about judgment. Judgment is NOT causing evil. It is a response to evil. Because of this important...

Re: Was Joseph a Calvinist?

I'll try again. I do not think Joseph's words are fallacious. I think his statements are true. I think you and others tend to misinterpret them. What you are calling 'face value' is, in my opinion, bad interpretation. Ok my friend, I apologize for my muddled response and will try to find common gro...
