Re: Baptismal Regeneration

Thank you for replying back Homer. It is amazing to me that people like Geisler write in his book “Bible Difficulties” that eis is used for “because of”. I have saved the the two (2) page preposition study; I’m going to study it.

Re: Baptismal Regeneration

Thank you for replying back Paidion!

You make some good points!

Of course people who focus on faith will go to Eph 2:8-9 and say baptism is a work. They will then compare baptism to circumcision - a la Paul’s talk in Galatians. Further, they will say - what about the thief on the cross?

Re: Additional Thoughts on the Nephilim

Justin Martyr wrote the following in his 2nd apology: He evidently made for man—committed the care of men and of all things under heaven to angels whom He appointed over them. But the angels transgressed this appointment, and were captivated by love of women, and begat children who are those that ar...

Re: Additional Thoughts on the Nephilim

I could be wrong, but I had read that your belief (only human involvement) is not the traditional or historical accepted view. The book of Enoch seems to show that Jews thought it were fallen angels.

Re: Pride

I have reflected on this issue as well. It seems that one has to have a certain level of self-esteem just to wake up, get dressed, go to work, and complete all the daily tasks. To me, pride would be saying that I did it all myself. It would be forgetting the fact that everything I truly have was giv...

Baptismal Regeneration

I read Justin Martyr’s first Apology today. He taught/wrote about baptismal regeneration. I have heard that most of the early fathers believed/taught this doctrine. Has anyone else every studied this issue in the early church father’s writings?

Re: Our “spirits”?

Thank you Paidion for taking time to respond. J P Moreland has written a book “The Soul” that deals with your objections - about the mind/spirit. Dale Tuggy summarizes some good arguments for the soul in some short videos. https://youtu.be/2ARcvXUYSn8 https://youtu.be/jXw7-yKhZ-U Paidion - what do y...
