Re: Just what kind of Preterist might I be? (and how about you)?

Rick, Thanks for the interesting summaries. I have never been much into labels, but I can see that some labels I have accepted may be too inexact. I think you are right that I would be a "Modern Preterist" more than a "Historical Preterist," but then, I have not been acquainted with the nuances of t...

The psalmist does not sound penitent. He sounds as if he is affirming his unswerving loyalty to God.

Re: Death Penalty For Homosexuals?

In my opinion, it is not the church's responsibility to force the government to do what is right, though the church, through its preaching or counseling of rulers (Acts 24:24-25), may have a role in educating lawmakers concerning God's standards of justice, which influence may trickle down to the ad...

Re: Timothy an Apostle?

As Paidion pointed out in the above post, Timothy is listed along with Paul and Silvanus (a.k.a. Silas) as one of the senders of the epistle to the Thessalonians (1:1). Therefore, it is most natural to believe that he, Paul and Silvanus, are to be identified as the "we" in 1 Thessalonians 2:6— "Nor ...

Re: Is Satan's 1st Sin even Possible?

I am jumping in here pretty late. It seems that this thread grew rather rapidly! Matt's theory sounds plausible, though we have to work with an almost total absence of biblical data. It makes sense, and, I suppose, cannot be disproved. As for God only creating good things, some things can be "good" ...

Re: Is Satan's 1st Sin even Possible?

Could God have created an evil being- who had no choice but to be evil? When we ask what God could or could not have created, we are, I think, raising the question of what God might wish to have created, rather than His ability to create whatever He might wish. If God wished to have such a being as...

Re: Stewardship & Retirement Savings

I agree with Paidion. I don't think that God will lead all people the same, because not all have the same calling, nor the same future. I have not saved anything for my future, and have never worried about it. Truth is, it's a lot more fun to give than to save—and, to my way of thinking, safer too! ...

Re: Augustinian and Calvinism

Calvin's beliefs on predestination and divine sovereignty (that is, the views usually associated with "Calvinism") came from Augustine.

The latter also was the father of many Roman Catholic views as well, many of which Calvin did not follow.
