Re: Is God in Control?

I wonder whether people say that God is in control because it provides for them a sense of security. It depends how you define control. Does God force people and events to play out precisely according to script or can the actors adlib or can nature just move randomly? If God exists and if God is om...

Re: Reconciled to God , not Jesus

No offense, and I don't mean to criticize your view at all, but from my understanding that's not really any kind of Trinitarian view. That's very close to Arius' own view (and that of many of the early pre-Nicene "church fathers"). I think in Arius's view Jesus is a separate creation whereas in my ...

Re: Reconciled to God , not Jesus

This is a huge biblical fact that undercuts Trinitarianism imo. Jesus is not God. We do not, or did not, need to be reconciled to the son but to the Father alone, because the Father alone is the only true God. I'm not sure it undercuts all Trinitarianism, maybe a certain kind. I think of Jesus as "...

Re: For Whom Would You Vote?

I just noticed that my spell-check accepts progressives as a word, and does not accept regressives. But I do. I just forced my spell-check to add regressives to my word-processor's dictionary. There! That's one tiny victory. ;)

Re: What happens when you commit suicide

do you become unsaved? I hope you consider that God made you for a reason and purpose and it was not to commit suicide so please think carefully about the good you can do for others simply through your intelligence. Also i bet there are people who would be devastated by your action. My personal opi...

Re: 2020 NASB update will be gender inclusive

I don't know why bother, I already have an NRSV. Thankfully I have a few copies of the 95 NASB on my bookshelf. I won't be buying a 2020 NASB, they're basically abandoning the "most literal" niche they carved out in an already crowded Bible translation market. I pray the NKJV and ESV don't follow s...

Re: Could Luke 20:38 support Universalism?

Now He is not the God of the dead but the living; for all live to Him.” "All live to Him" is in the present indicative active tense which tells us the action (living) was occurring as Jesus spoke. As Jesus was speaking Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob were alive. I can see no support for universalism in H...

Re: Alien Invasion

There's a "caravan" of people hoofing it from Central America toward the U.S. Border. Supposedly, the burgeoning throng just happened to blossom spontaneously (with a little help from Community Organizer types), and is scheduled to arrive at the U.S. southern on or about election day. Nifty coincid...

Re: (Seemingly) strange applications of OT prophecy in the N

It's interesting how two people can see the same thing and react so differently! She thinks it's neat, while I think it borders on being a stumbling block! It's actually the issue that bothers me most (probably the only issue that bothers me) about the New Testament. I think it's neat too. For exam...
