    Calvinism---Why bother to evangelize

    Hey Drew! Good to see you again. It's been a long time! : ) Yes, but for what purpose? So that free will can be exercised and through faith, decisions made. The Calvinist tries to use phrases and concepts that only make sense from an Arminianist perspective. Calvinism tries to make God...

    Christian Conditionalism

    The Bible just doesn't teach what you think it does, reformed. First of all, the word for 'death' is 'thanatos'. Nowhere in the usage of it applying to the wicked in the afterlife are we to interpret it other than it's intended meaning 'cessation of life'. 'thanatos' is the Greek equivalent of...

    Calvinism---Why bother to evangelize

    "Romans 10:12-17 "For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, abounding in riches for all who call on Him; for “WHOEVER WILL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED.†How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they...

    ... WHEN DO THE AFTER LIFE START....WHEN WE DIE...

    Saltwater, it is simply personification intending to show that in the grave, all are equal. Nowhere in all the OT will you find support for Sheol being used in this way literally. Sheol is translated the vast majority of the time as 'the grave'. Look at Ecclesiastes 9 again. The bottom line...

    Christian Conditionalism

    Au contraire, Danus. There is MUCH support for the total destruction and eternal death of God's enemies. The scriptures are rife with it! I have pages of biblical references to it and a paper I did on this very subject if you are interested. I can send it to you if you PM me with a contact...

    ... WHEN DO THE AFTER LIFE START....WHEN WE DIE...

    Apparently you don't recognize metaphor. Notice the terms 'maggot' and 'worms'. These are not disembodied souls. This is metaphor for the feebleness of death. This is the same language used in Job 21:26 Power and placement means nothing when you are dead. The 'kings' bring this thought out...

    ... WHEN DO THE AFTER LIFE START....WHEN WE DIE...

    And what we have here is a gross ignorance of the context of the verse. We must compare the language of 2 Cor 5 with that of 1 Corinthians 15. Look closely at the language of 2 Corinthians 5: This earthly tent Paul speaks about is our body. Now this is important. Paul wants to be...

    Willfull Sinning

    ALL our sin is 'willful'. We do not 'accidentally' fall into sin. We CHOOSE to sin even when we know that it is wrong. This is what Paul was saying, 'The things I don't want to do, I do and the things I wish to do, I do not!' Living a life of sinful rebellion is much different than 'willfully'...

    Is Hell an Invention of the church ?

    The contempt is what is experienced by the living towards the dead. It is symbolic, figurative language. The NT does not disprove annihilation. All the 'eternal torment' texts find their symbolic meaning in the OT language of complete extinction. Terms such as 'day and night forever and...

    Pelagianism

    Pelagius believed that there was no original sin and that by our choices, we can remain sinless, in essence, we can save ourselves by our choices. Though Pelagianism was condemned at the Council of Ephesus in 431 A.D, the Catholic Church eventually adopted their own form of semi-Pelagianism by...

    Do Seventh Day Adventists Preach Error?

    I would like you to address my statement instead of affirming in your own mind what you already believe. What exactly was the purpose of the seventh day being 'blessed', and 'hallowed' by God outside of man's sphere of influence and then referred directly back to in the Sabbath commandment of...

    Do Seventh Day Adventists Preach Error?

    As pat and convenient to say that 'Jesus is our Sabbath rest' based on a cursory reading of Hebrews 4, Sabbath abrogators cannot simply excuse away many things about the validity of the Sabbath. 1) The Sabbath was not some sort of temporary covenant for a specific people. The seventh day was...

    Should Christians listen to the Beatles?

    As far as Christians go, you can do much, much worse than the Beatles! The question is WHY would you listen to them. Their music pre-1965 was good. The late sixties stuff leaves much to be desired musically. I'm not sure how a band goes from 'Hard Days Night' and 'I Want to Hold Your Hand'...
