re: United Methodist Church special session this week - Quidam65
[quote]People don’t like the thought of Calvinism because they like the thought of choice. If your salvation ultimately depends on your unprompted choice, then Christ’s sacrifice was not enough. [/quote] Then why bother to preach the Gospel if the decision is already made? I know that's the var...

re: United Methodist Church special session this week - Quidam65
[quote]Also, if you believe God knows all, then he can’t learn. He therefore could not learn of your choice to follow him. He already knew. Therefore, the choice necessarily has to be preordained. [/quote] That's conflating foreknowledge (knowing who would accept and who would reject) with predes...

re: United Methodist Church special session this week - Quidam65
[quote]I always sort of thought that God didn't pick who would chose Him, but He can look through all of time and therefore already knows what choice everyone will make. If that makes sense. [/quote] Again the mystery is why create someone who would reject Him? That is beyond my understanding (...

[quote]There is no one who goes to Hell that deserved to go to Heaven, which is really the point of the book of Romans: all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.[/quote] I agree completely, and God had no obligation to give mankind an out when Adam sinned (He didn't with Lucifer and t...

[quote]I'm not well-versed in this area of theology, but, if I remember my college courses well enough, this sounds like a throwback view from the old days of Calvin -- basic Pre-destination. Am I wrong about that?[/quote] Reformed is a synonym for Calvinism. Basically, God picked at the outset ...

[quote]I was a passenger in a car that hit a kid in Tuscaloosa in 2009. I still remember the glass shattering on me from the impact. He was stumbling drunk and tripping balls. We called the cops immediately and he survived, but I was fricked up about it for a long time. Started snorting blow and dri...

[quote]This is an interesting story. Can you share with us the heresy?[/quote] They were teaching Reformed Theology a/k/a Calvinism. Which, as I said, I consider heresy (since it essentially IMHO turns God into a sadistic bully, picking some to be saved and others to be damned, but blaming the d...

[quote]Ed "The Bed"... Why? [/quote] Because when he preached about sex, he and his wife would have a bed on the roof of their church (which anyone flying into DFW Airport could see). Google it and have fun. I have personal history with them and will not go back. Told them a few years ago ...

[quote]Why aren't any of you joining your local KJV/fundamental church?[/quote] Because the Fort Worth Star Telegram reported that IB's have the same problem that the SBC has in moving around predators. So I can join an IB church and worry about my grandson being victimized by a predator, plus...

[quote]No, David was not a homosexual. No, David did not commit homosexuality with his dear friend Jonathan. They were close as brothers, not lovers. Nothing in the Bible says anything about a homosexual relationship between David and Jonathan. What it does describe is a bond and closeness that they...
