I think we can all be assured, from scriptures, that the undertaking to "change" the sights of the Old Testament to the sights of the N.T. in Acts 15 for example were no small matters. It was in fact hotly debated among the Apostles and elders.

I consider such things quite healthy and scripturally secure methodology. UNTIL it comes to the point of condemning each others. It is there that we fall and fail, ourselves.

Believers, at some point, have to be 'fully' convinced in their own minds. Romans 14:5. This may lead one to esteem a day more than another, or one to eat certain meats, and another, not. This is not a problem. We all are demanded to 'work out our own salvation.' Phil. 2:12. Which appears to be no small challenge. We all have to prove our own work, Gal. 6:4. Variations in sights and works ARE allowed. Heresies must come, to show who stands where, why, and who is right/wrong.

We all, in our own faith, stand in between the balances of what is right and wrong, and debate this even in ourselves, everyday don't we?

Having posted here for quite some time, I think the format here does an excellent job, overall. As do the mods, again, generally speaking. Speaking as a "survivor" who has not survived at other sites where only certain factions are allowed to speak. And others, not at all.

If we ain't got contentions, we just ain't living. The Gospel is always delivered "in contentions, disputes and debates." Acts 17:16-17.

I mean, here are a couple of believers, called by the Holy Spirit to work, having a bit of a contentious riff:

Acts 15:39
And the contention was so sharp between them, that they departed asunder one from the other: and so Barnabas took Mark, and sailed unto Cyprus;

What this doesn't mean is that either man condemned each others. They saw differently on the above, and they were moved to work, differently.

But it's the same Spirit that works all in all in any case of sights. Paul rejoiced no matter how Christ was preached. Phil. 1:8. I might think Paul had more confidence in Christ than he had in others or even in himself.

i.e. the Political Debates=Red Herrings, all.
Bill,

I only point out a logical fallacy when one is committed because it is fallacious reasoning and prevent rational discussion. Isn't that a reasonable response?

It seems to me that the claim of using a red herring fallacy could have been a red herring fallacy in its own right. After all, didn't that claim result in the thread being distracted from the OP toward the discussion of what a red herring is?
Logical fallacies prevent reasonable discussion from continuing. Don't you understand that? When I mention a logical fallacy, it is to deal with the kind of reasoning being used to present a case. Surely you are not wanting me to allow irrational thinking to continue in a post that is advocating a position.:whirl

oz you made your point i like a good debate /disagreement like you i tend to lean toward p,o.t.s perseverance of the saints .. while i do have a tendency lean toward eternal security.. i find no place in scripture that we can do as we please and still make it to heaven..can we walk away from what we received that a Big question and depends on who a person ask .will be the answer . in the end no one will agree .

If it is constrained from entering into rdeligion, okay, point taken, but faith in God is absolute, unequivical, faith or Eternal Death, a condition we cannot even imagine. My science, say for flying the once impossible to fly Helicopter is completely separate from science and the Scientific Method.

Your point doesn't make sense when compared with this response to what I wrote.
