Re: Diug Wilson's "pennies"

Paidion, is Logic useful when dealing with things outside and beyond our dimensional reality? It's all we've got, but it's not all there is. Cause and effect may only be true within our time and space continuum. God is not bound by them and they only seem "real" to us because of our limited perspect...

Re: Soteriology

So those who die as non-Christians are DOOMED, you say. What do you make of Paul's words to Timothy: For to this end we toil and strive, because we have our hope set on the living God, who is the Savior of all people, especially of those who believe. (1 Timothy 4:10 ESV) Does the term "all people" ...

Theology of Constatine

Re: What should a pastor do? Coronavirus edition

Again, in a society like ours, it would be very unusual for a Christian to have occasion to have to break a law. There are no laws made by legislatures that apply to the coronavirus responses. There are no legitimate dictators here. If laws are made that violate constitutional authority, then that ...

Re: What should a pastor do? Coronavirus edition

American ignorance of the role of constitutional government seems to be at an all time high, which bodes ill for people who believe that it is a form of government worth preserving. When government officials say, "You cannot do this..." we have every right to say, why not? Who says so? If they can ...

I'm curious Steve about the scriptural limits you suggest as to obeying authorities. Isn't government's authority positional instead of a mere dele...

Re: "Being in the form (morphe) of God" Philippians 2:6

I see what you're saying. But, I think both positions go too far. I don't think the idea is outer appearance like a visual appearance, but something more inner than that but not so "inner" as to refer to existential or ontological "essence" or "nature." I think it has more to do with His "posture" o...
