Re: Understanding Lordship Salvation

Doug, there's nothing that I am aware of that I haven't been willing to submit to His lordship. That doesn't mean it's always clear whether I have submitted to His lordship or if I have said, "Lord, let me first..." at the preference of my family. Maybe it's never been unclear to you. Praise God if ...

Re: Understanding Lordship Salvation

I agree with backwoodsman's analysis. But I'm with rusty in regards to the question. I had a much easier time with the question when I was single. In the context of marriage and children, with all of the varied personalities and likes, trying to follow the primary command of Christ to love others an...

Re: Did God Cause a Man to be Born Blind?

Surely not, Paidion. Doesn't matter. Still was referring to doing it before it was too late.

Re: Did God Cause a Man to be Born Blind?

But no one even directly addressed the matter of the alternate reading. 3,4 Jesus answered, "Neither this man NOR his parents sinned. But in order that the works of God might be revealed in him, it is necessary to work the works of Him who sent Me, while it is day; night is coming when no one can w...

Re: Laws of the Israelites

We pray, believing that God can (and does) intervene in human history. So, by extension, we believe in a God who could intervene in human suffering but often doesn't. That's ok with us but for Him to actually be the one who causes suffering is not ok? In human terms, would we feel better about a man...

As far as I can see, the shadows and types given us in the Scriptures (Abraham and Isaac come to mind) are that of a Father losing a Son to receive back something to Himself . As a parent, I am sure most realize that they would sooner endure any punishment themselves , then allow a beloved child to...

Re: Is our life-span fixed?

Hi Paidion, I believe Moses' and Joshua's account of those events. That doesn't mean that I think God causes tsunamis to kill people for their disobedience today. The circumstances of this day and age are vastly different than when God was establishing Israel as His chosen people. The question I hav...

Before the debate, I thought the videos would be available to both, and I said I would post them. I am not accustomed to the idea of selling recorded information, which I would wish for all peopl...
