Re: Natural Evil a Retroactive Effect of the Fall of Man?

It strikes me that some variation of this is very intuitively plausible and answers a lot of difficult questions. Yet, if one keeps going with the logic—evolution itself could be a result of the fall and curse of sin. This seems reinforced when one thinks about the principles of evolution—selfish do...

Re: The Democrat Party Is Finished?

I'm not condemning anyone. I am presenting facts, which you obviously reject out of hand in your adulation of Trump. I will say no more after this post. I don't have to. The truth will come out as the people of United States find out to their chagrin the ramifications of having this man as presiden...

Re: 10/25 Afternoon show - Re: voting

Hi Pete, If we follow Paul's reasoning in Romans 13 it seems that the rulers must be submitted to if they are carrying out God's purpose, which makes it difficult to either secede or overthrow them while being in God's will.

Re: Calvinism and the Middle Voice

I read it, Homer. The middle voice can be a rather complex matter. Here's the way I understand it: First , the middle voice is not reflexive. It would be incorrect to translate it as "having prepared themselves for destruction." Secondly , the classic use of the middle involved self-interest for th...
