Re: Denying yourself

Thanks. I’m well acquainted with Willard (and am a big fan). Not familiar with that one and will check it out. Thanks. (Though wealth and poverty isn’t really the issue he’s facing. More of a time management and rest/leisure).

Denying yourself

We were discussing Luke 9:23 during our bible study class at church and one of our members was struggling with the limits of denying yourself. What role does self-care and self-satisfaction and joie de vivre play in the Christian life? I have struggled with this very question over the years and had ...

Re: Abe Lincoln on the Bible

He was pretty well known for being antagonistic towards Christianity until he created a political persona. I think we tend to invent our own heroes. You might find this interesting. https://www.lewrockwell.com/2018/09/thomas-dilorenzo/lincoln-as-he-really-was/ Here’s a relevant excerpt: The book con...

Re: If the devil believes in God....

Check out James 2:19. Sin is stupid, I guess.

Re: Are You a Unitrinian?

That's funny... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bliss_Carman ... Through Mrs. King's influence Carman became an advocate of 'unitrinianism,' a philosophy which "drew on the theories of François-Alexandre-Nicolas-Chéri Delsarte to develop a strategy of mind-body-spirit harmonization aimed at undoing th...

Re: YouTube Videos Christology

Most Unitarians would agree with the first paragraph but many would disagree that John 8:58 is meant to imply pre-existence. What do they think it meant? I think most would say that He pre-existed in the mind of God — that He existed in God's foreknowledge -- that it was part of God’s plan that Jes...

“Breakthrough” Movie

Watched this with my family last night. I’m curious what people think.

Re: YouTube Videos Christology

Well... Jesus Himself was a unitarian. In His prayer to the Father, He addressed the Father as "the only true God" (John 17:3). He also affirmed His own pre-existence with the words "Before Abraham was, I am." (John 8:58). Most Unitarians would agree with the first paragraph but many would disagree...

Re: YouTube Videos Christology

If the Son of God is that "Wisdom" of Proverbs 8, and was begotten by God as His first acts (as it states there), then He MUST have been more than human at His begetting. No human was begotten prior to his existence as a zygote in his mother's womb. The fact that He was begotten as the first of God...

Re: YouTube Videos Christology

The Problem with Unitarianism: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=SGqQNjbnFOI Just quickly, you seem unaware of the significant variations in Unitarian positions on this. Many early and late adoptionists And subordinationists would hold to likeness of kind and even pre-existence. (even Arius). But liken...
