    Most difficult scripture passage?

    It's of candidates. One that came to mind lately is this one: Proverbs 22:6 (A)Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it. It seems there are countless examples of well meaning believers flowing good practices that loose children. Your thoughts?

    Christ's universal compassion.

    Matthew 9 36 But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. Christ was offering himself as the spiritual leader, the great Shepherd. John 20 30And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of...

    Free will infinite regression problem

    We make the decisions in life that we most desire to make. One may choose to do something they really hate, like eating broccoli. But they still desired to do It because of some other motivation, weight loss or good health for example. It was still what they desired to eat most at the moment...

    Corridors of time problem

    The reformed view is thast God knows the future because He planned out and created and brought into existence every event in history. He has a master plan it will go according to his plan. A common non Calvinist view is that God "looks down the corridors of time" to know the future. This is...

    Yes a fetus is an unborn baby

    Despite the fake news by our resident scientist, This is common knowledge, the term has been around long before fetus. And it's widely recognised for example: In humans, an unborn baby that develops and grows inside the...

    No real difference between compatibalism and hard determinism.

    At least on a practical level for most people that I can tell. The main point of compatibilism is that men are free to do what they want. I think people calling themselves determinists agree that men do what they want. Seems to me the difference is simply a matter of Semantics and...

    Presbyterians believe complete divine determination Including determining sin John Murray (c) It respects good and evil, so that even the sins of men come within the scope of his rule and providence.

    Calvin believed complete divine determinism

    Including determining sinful acts.. Or so it seems. A quote: But the question about the will of man is unseasonably introduced on the present occasion. If God controls the purposes of men, and turns their thoughts and exertions to whatever purpose he pleases, men do not therefore cease to...

    How does a desire enter your mind?

    1. It arises deterministicly through the interaction of your nature, and your circumstances. 2. It arises spontaneously and randomly from these. 3. It's arises by a combination of deterministic and random, science would call this "probabilisticly". Whatever a free will is, it would have fall...

    Atonement limited or general?

    Scriptures to consider: Colossians 1 For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell, 20 and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross. ___________________________________...

    Yes God loves everyone, no doubt.

    Matthew 5 43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 [o]But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, 45 that you may be sons of your...

    I am a big tent guy

    It is a sad thing to me to see believers bickering and calling each other heretics over all kinds of issues here. But such is the flesh. On the bright side, it seems this behavior is less than it was in the past, with different factions burning each other at the stake back in the day. I...

    The handwriting of requirements is gone folks

    Col 2: 13 And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, 14 having wiped out the [i]handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the...

    Does God have an inner conflict?

    The more "high" calvinist view is that God does not desire the salvation of all men. They say this would create inner conflict with God which can't be the case. However, they are still left with passages they mush admit describe a will of God that is in conflict than another will of God...

    For Christ's sake

    The reason we are blessed in persecution for Christ sake, is because he is God very God who will not give his glory to another. Matthew 5 11 Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Isaiah 48 9 “For My name’s sake I will...

    Mandating covid shot for kids is assinine

    To say the very least. And hopefully it will bite the dems in the arse in upcoming elections. 99.9 percent for kids and covid survival rate, and possible heart problems from the shot. It's mind blowing that we have come to this. It's a cult now, there is no other way to describe it. And...

    For free willers about heaven.

    Will we have free will to reject God in heaven? If so we are never secure and might fall from heaven. If not, then why is free will seen as so critical to you? If we are not free in heaven, then is our love really genuine(in heaven that is)? I HAVE BEEN TOLD ITS NOT.
