    Ask God. According to your system, He is the One who would have made that determination. :-)

    Please don't get personal.



    God decrees whatsoever comes to pass, does He not?

    I believe the push back against LFW is the concept of "the ability to do otherwise than what one ends up doing." I believe that is a poor way of looking at...

    You ask that as if it depends on me. Depends on what God decrees, right? ;) I'll do what I am able.

    But the act of "deliberation" is defined as, "to think about or discuss something very...

    Exactly, yet it is a creature acting in accordance with its own innate desires, the very thing Compatibilists claims is what makes human choice free and accountable.

    You say that as if I'm not merely doing as God decreed...like you might have some say in convincing me not to teach what God decreed for me to believe and teach? Strange... lol :-)

    On earth as it is in heaven

    Why does the Jesus ask us to pray that God's will be done on earth as it is in heaven if the Lord's will is already being done on earth as it is in heaven?

    Yet, Compatibilists argue that a moral choice is 'free' in that the person is "doing what he desires." I'm saying that is NOT a significant enough of a criteria on which to call a choice FREE,...

    So, we should belittle and mock those who interpret the bible differently than we do? We all believe we are "standing up for the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ," but of course that is why we have a...

    I didn't think I would need to cite a commonly known fact. Even Calvinistic scholars acknowledge that their soteriological views are not the most popular...in fact some pride themselves on that. If...

    Hatred is used in the original language to connote the choice of one over another (i.e. as in 'hate your mother and father'). In the OT it is used to indicate the 'wrath' or 'condemnation' sinful...

    I affirmed that already, remember. We are debating the WHY. Is it "Unable to be willing" or just plain ol "unable to complete the action."

    Either way, the point that God won't be lying is agreed...

    So aborted unborn babies are righteous since they didn't disobey God's laws? They get in on the basis of their own righteousness, not the righteousness of Christ? Christ is NOT the only way?

    Right...is God really the "do as I say not as I do" kind of God? I don't believe so. Christ didn't represent God like that anyway. Good verse! He loved him even though he walked away.
