Re: Why do no Hymns Speak of God Raising Jesus?

Paidion, How are we to understand this if Jesus is Holy Spirit?

Luke 12: 10 And everyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but the one who mblasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven.

Re: Why do no Hymns Speak of God Raising Jesus?

Thanks Paidion. That was my question. I didn't want to sound offensive such as "How did he descend upon himself?"

Re: Why not Universal Reconciliation?

I have no desire that people suffer in hell Are you more loving then God? Does God desire to see people suffer? What good is the suffering if it neither ends nor eventually brings people to God? No doubt as you point out and I agree the Tares are thrown in the furnace or lake of fire. It is indeed ...

Re: Why do no Hymns Speak of God Raising Jesus?

While I agree during his life the acts were of the Father but weren't they through the Holy Spirit? Wondering why you left that part out. Left what part out? The Holy Spirit? The Lord [Jesus] is the Spirit. (2 Corinthians 3:17) Thanks Paidion. So how does the following work?  Luke 3:21 Now when all...

Re: Why do no Hymns Speak of God Raising Jesus?

Paidion, isn't it possible that his letting go ended ended at the time of his death?

While I agree during his life the acts were of the Father but weren't they through the Holy Spirit? Wondering why you left that part out.

Re: Why not Universal Reconciliation?

crgfstr1, You asked: Homer, I don't understand how points 2 and 3 from Steve's statement which are possibilities (don't have to be probabilities) can be refuted by other alternative possibilities. In order to say that 2 and 3 aren't possibilities, scripture needs to be provided that clearly shows t...

Re: Why not Universal Reconciliation?

While Restorationism is at least as "scriptural," to the objective exegete, as is any other view, it also may be the most "philosophically" coherent (or most "theologically" harmonious with the biblical view of God), in that it makes the most logical sense of certain known scriptural facts, namely:...

Re: Why do no Hymns Speak of God Raising Jesus?

...(And, for the record, with respect to that old question, "If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?", since sound is defined as, "That which is heard," we can simply say that the tree makes a sound potentially , though not actually ; that is, it produce...

Re: Why not Universal Reconciliation?

All things we know of that are described as long lasting come to an end. They are not eternal . It may surprise some of you, but I actually agree with Homer on this particular point. "Long-lasting" implies lasting for a long time (not forever)—the same with "long-enduring." I don't think these are ...

Re: Why not Universal Reconciliation?

crgfstr1, Homer is at it again, making the same false statements that he has made (and been unable to defend when challenged) for many years. He always claims that the arguments for Restorationism have to "explain away" scriptures, and are "philosophical." He cannot show that such is the case with ...
