    I guess that was a poorly worded question on my part-😂 I think my main idea here was sin and reconciling sin with the Calvinist idea of Gods decrees and the necessary results of that being God “willing” everything including sin. What I meant by the capacity for evil but not the choice for...

    Question for fellow non-Calvinists

    Not specifically- just more something not devoted to that certain theology.

    Question for fellow non-Calvinists

    For my fellow non-Calvinist believers on the board, what are some of your favorite authors or theologians? Any recommended reading- Authors or books that have been influential in your walk? I’ve downloaded some sample kindle books but wanted to hear from y’all if there is something highly...

    Civic, just quickly reading that, I think I agree with most (If not all) of it, thank you! but where do the decrees of God come in in relation to the free will and choices you spoke about? That’s confusing to me and what about nothing happening that God doesn’t “will” to happen including sin?

    The term “death” is used as a figurative element in speech- just as we use it today Example : “that party is dead” how did the dead man in Luke understand why he was in torment? He was “dead” How did he have the capacity to understand? I think there’s plenty of scriptural examples that show...

    We talk about everything- just this specific topic is hard for both of us… we are each still thinking and talking about it and chewing on all the different intricacies. I’m still reading on your posts- we are going out of town tomorrow so I should be packing- won’t be posting much for a while...

    Civic, are you suggesting that every time the term “dead” or “nekros” is found in scripture that it is the literal definition of the word and that it doesn’t use that word in figurative senses as well?

    Theo, go back and take a quick gander at your last post with all your Greek definitions - should we say the same about you? I’ve been pretty forward that I am working this through in real time on this forum.. not an expert on anything- never even eluded to that. why do you keep coming and...

    There are literal definitions and figurative definitions and theology can turn on a definition. for example “dead” - comes from the word nekros and is a noun that literally means dead, but when used figuratively it is a very fluid term- interestingly it does not speak to inability. If we are...

    Can you show me this is the Bible? The will of God and the will of man being the same will? This would be an example of God using evil to work his good purpose. This doesn’t necessitate that God decrees everything It doesn’t sit well to say that “God and man are equal in Christ” Christ humbly...

    I guess there’s also the issue with words- in this case, what does “free” mean? Are we free in the sense of being able to make a decision that was not directly or indirectly scripted ? the definition of freedom from Webster's Third New International Dictionary gives this definition: "the...

    Glad we are past that now… 🙌 how far does the “liberty of the will” go? How is there liberty of the will when God wills everything- that’s the part that doesn’t seem to shake out to me… it feels a bit like a web of confusing statements- please don’t take that personal rev, just seems...

    please show you’ve falsely accused me multiple times of having erroneous intentions. Nobody is harassing you- just holding you accountable for your words. Go back and read what was written I said you “seem to be a hostile type of person” that’s an opinion based on your previous response...

    can you show me anything shocking that i have said? can you quote a lie? Please show me how I sinned against you at any level but specifically at a level that would have you questioning how I live with myself?? What specific actions did you condemn? The fact that I found it funny that you...
