Should Trump Be Removed from Office

Christianity Today has called for Trump to be removed from office and says it is wrong for Christians to support Trump. Franklin Graham strongly disagrees. I have a lot of respect for Eric Metaxas who has spoken favorably for Trump. I see Trump as a very flawed man, but on the whole I think he has h...

Re: Mark of the Beast

Focusedman,

But you did not answer my question. You only quoted a scripture without exegeting it and then veered off into irrelevance to my request. Again, how is our sonship comparable or different than the sonship of Jesus?

Re: Mark of the Beast

focusedman, You Wrote: Divine Sonship is not exclusive to the person Jesus, but it is inclusive to each individual that has the faith to take God at his word. Could you elaborate on this statement? Do you believe Jesus is not God's sui generis Son? Do you see no difference in our adopted status and ...

Re: Mark of the Beast

Focusedman, Could you show from the scriptures where the Old Covenant, which included the Ten Commandments, was ever an obligation upon anyone other than the children of Israel to whom it was given? Can you cite any passage in scripture where any gentile was chastised for not keeping the Law of Mose...

Re: Born Again or Begotten Again?

Hi Paidion, Read the article at the link you posted. The author is Reformed or Calvinist, if you will, and his idea about being "placed as a son" would seem to dovetail with a Calvinist idea of being elected as a son and then at conversion being placed as a son: The son was always the son ( elect? )...

Re: Born Again or Begotten Again?

Hi Paidion, I do not think there is any doubt that gennao in its various uses means begotten or born. But in either case it seems we can not take it literally in reference to our becoming a Christian. Paul, in numerous places, references our "adoption as sons". How can this be if we are literally "b...
