Re: Can 2 Timothy 2:24 be MISUSED?

I think it's usually easy to identify when someone is being quarrelsome. I'm sure it can be misused, though. In my experience, it's usually best to keep one's mouth shut about most such things. I will occasionally give my own contrary opinion about something if someone else did. I'm sure we're all c...

Re: U.S. Kavanaugh Supreme Court Nomination

IMO this may have happened 36 years ago in High School and K would have been 17, so to now use this as a reason to keep him off the SCOTUS is more then unfair. This is all political & i wish one senator had the backbone to say so. I think I agree. Short of something really bizarre, it's difficult t...

Re: To Marry or not to Marry?

Okay. Pardon me. I thought it was because you loved being single. No, not at all. It was related to walking single file on the narrow path or something like that. 6 years, I was 33, and I don't think the idea of dating or marriage had ever entered my mind at all. 1 Corinthians 7! For those who are ...

Re: To Marry or not to Marry?

Just out of curiosity. Why is your name on this forum "Singalphile" instead of "Singlephile"? I think I explained it once or twice before somewhere, though I wouldn't expect anyone to remember. I can hardly remember. I think it was only to make it more unique. It certainly had nothing at all to do ...

Re: To Marry or not to Marry?

Thank you for the continued advice, TruthInLove (Carmine). Blooming where you're planted is great. The thing is, I'm not "planted" anywhere. I'm hoping that there's some reason for that, other than just me being an apparently low libido loner :). I hope and pray that God's got something special in m...

Re: U.S. Kavanaugh Supreme Court Nomination

Agreed. If the act did occur as Ford claims, then she has more evidence. But if she had let it out all at once, Kavanaugh would have withdrawn months ago and someone else would have been nominated and confirmed by now. That would have defeated the whole purpose. They just needed to feed out enough i...

U.S. Kavanaugh Supreme Court Nomination

I know politics isn't our usual thing, but this Kavanaugh situation is fascinating, right? I've only read a few stories, and I watched or read most of the hearings and testimonies. I can only think of two realistic possibilities, and both involve politics: 1) The accuser (Ford) concocted the story e...

Re: Why Couldn't Satan be Literally Imprisoned Now?

Musing about this again, and re-reading this thread. I've seen only one passage that could be used to imply that Satan was not completely sealed away - in a way that matches the imagery of being chained up, thrown into an abyss, shut and sealed in - shortly after the visions of Revelation circa AD 7...

Re: A question of clarification for our Open Theist friends

I don't know anything about what is or isn't mainstream or common among open theists, but I've certainly heard and considered the possibility that God chooses not to know. I think that for some people, open theism isn't primarily about solving complex mysteries like foreknowledge and free will. Rath...

Re: Methinks They Protesteth Too Much

A neighbor stopped by our garage sale one day and we got into a pleasant theological discussion. He said he was an atheist because God had let his dog die. One can have sympathy. I bet we've all humbly asked God to help a loved friend with some pain or bad situation? (If you haven't, I guess you're...
