Re: Despot of the Oikas

Darin, I overlooked something in 5:14: 1 Timothy 5:14 New American Standard Bible (NASB) 14. Therefore, I want younger widows to get married, bear children, keep house , and give the enemy no occasion for reproach The word translated "younger", the Grk. neoteras , is translated correctly but "widows...

Re: Despot of the Oikas

Darin,

If we grant that the word means "rule over" it seems to me to be irrelevant to the complementarian/egalitarian argument given that the context clearly points to the subject of widows.

Re: True Forgiveness

Hi Paidion, I have a couple questions for you. In consideration of this: Forgiveness vs. Restoration of Trust By Rick Warren “Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: ‘It is mine to avenge; I will repay,’ says the Lord” (Romans 12:19 NIV). Who has a be...

Re: True Forgiveness

Hi Paidion, You wrote, However, if the employee will not restore his position because he cannot trust him not to repeat the offence, that would indicate that he does not really believe that the employee has repented ( had a genuine change of heart and mind). For if he did, he would not repeat the of...

Re: Love and the Trinity

Backwoodsman,

Interesting point re space and time!

It seems to me that if God is love and the greatest expression of that love is to lay down your life for another, it would be gratuitous to lay your life down where there is no need. The argument as stated would not apply where there was no sin.

Re: True Forgiveness

Hi Paidion, In the example you gave I could agree with you. By repaying the employer, repentance was demonstrated to likely be genuine. However, I would insist that forgiving a person and restoring trust are not the same thing. Consider another example: a person operates a day care for children and ...

Re: True Forgiveness

Hi Paidion, Could you elaborate on what you mean by this statement: 3. Your relationship with the offender is restored. If your relationship included being in authority over the person (say employer or supervisor) and he embezzled or abused/molested another person, would "restoring the relationship"...

Re: The First Christmas

Then the question would be was Christ the beginning of creation (i.e. first thing God created) or was Christ the origin (source) of all that has been created? Colossians 1:15-17 New American Standard Bible (NASB) 15. He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16. For by Him...
