Re: Darius the Mede as God Himself

Hi friends, I originally posted this around Christmas-time as it seems like traffic to the forum is usually higher then and I thought the likelihood of catching the attention of someone this topic might interest would be higher. However, I also realize many people are busy gearing up for the holiday...

Re: Foreknowledge = Determinism? And God's Character.

Hi Paidion, I agree that God has a mind just as we do. Some similarities between the thought processes of God and man seem likely to account for at least one component of the image we share. My point about the brain is simply that human thought processes need assistance from some physical component ...

Re: Foreknowledge = Determinism? And God's Character.

And I thought, ‘After she has done all this she will return to me,’ but she did not return, and her treacherous sister Judah saw it. (Jeremiah 3:6-7 ESV) Wasn't the LORD surprised in this case? This may very well be God speaking in such a way that enables us to relate to Him. Arguably, the mechanic...

Re: Foreknowledge = Determinism? And God's Character.

Hi Si, I and I'm sure many others can appreciate where you are coming from on this. My own brother is grappling with this very subject. It may very well be that we can do nothing but that which God already knows we will do. We may never be able to surprise God with our actions. That doesn't necessar...

Re: Preaching to Myself

Hi all, This subject has always troubled me and I've been thinking about this quite a bit as of this post. There are some very good points mentioned here in favor of the existence of an age of accountability. Personally, I hope one does exist. However, if it does exist, I'm curious as to the implica...

Re: Hints of the Messiah in the Line of Cain

Thanks Paidion. Are you saying that you don't believe God uses typology or numerology or does the study of these subjects just seem speculative, dangerous, unhelpful, uninteresting or otherwise inconsequential to you? How do you feel about God's possible use of wordplays on things of obvious prophet...

Re: The faith OF Jesus Christ

Hi Si,

Perhaps this article will help you decide for yourself. It seems to give a pretty thorough discussion. The correct translation appears to be quite debatable.

"Faith IN Christ" or "Faithfulness OF Christ"

Re: Hints of the Messiah in the Line of Cain

Hi Paidion, Thanks for the question. You are absolutely correct about Noah decending from Seth. Though, I'm not sure what portion of my post suggested that Cain may have had descendents who survived beyond the flood. That's not at all what I meant to suggest. I must have been unclear on some point. ...

Hints of the Messiah in the Line of Cain

Many of the forum's readers have expressed a belief in the symbolism employed in Genesis in relationship to whether it should be taken literally or not. Though, it's not my intent to argue in this thread as to how literal Genesis should or should not be taken, I would like to piggyback on this trend...

Re: Suggestions for adult Sunday school materials?

Just throwing one out there but you may want to check out http://regularbaptistpress.org/sunday-school/adults/truth-for-living . I can't vouch for the newest material from them but years ago, as a new Christian, I found their material very informative. Also, I'd recommend These Were God's People . I...
