    The Skinny on Foreknowledge in a Short Op

    Rom 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. 29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30 Moreover...

    The Skinny on Foreknowledge in a Short Op

    The text that I dealt with did not present us with what God foreknows, but whom God foreknew. And, he foreknew that Israel as his people would not believe in their redeemer. Foreknew describes an action. Edit per mod. These comments imply that you are calling someone out for their thinking...

    The Skinny on Foreknowledge in a Short Op

    Years ago I spent some time in Vietnam. The locals there had a saying when two or more things are the same. It was "same/same." Here are three things in a context that are the same. 1 I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of...

    The Skinny on Foreknowledge in a Short Op

    You are on the wrong subject. God is not teaching omniscience, though he does that in other passages, he is teaching foreknowledge in the passage I quoted. There is a difference. Think! The subject is the people group Israel in the New Testament days. Through Christ he has kept promises to them...

    The Skinny on Foreknowledge in a Short Op

    Foreknowledge is a New Testament word. It is not a description of an attribute of God in the four thousand years of the Old Testament. This word appears first in Romans 11 in the context of God's people, Israel, with whom he had a long two thousand year covenant relationship, beginning with the...

    KJVONLYism and Gnosticism - Are there parallels?

    Do you understand that God is in the world today? If your answer is yes, then I will ask where do you think he is? Your answer will be critical to your understanding of God. Where on earth does God live and what is he doing and how is he doing it? Your correct approach to the words of the...

    KJVONLYism and Gnosticism - Are there parallels?

    You are claiming that inspiration is a worthless commodity, which of course it is if one believes your weird reasoning. Your whole premise is built upon your misguided reasoning that God cannot and will not and has not preserved his words in translation when he has demonstrated in several places...

    KJVONLYism and Gnosticism - Are there parallels?

    One does not need a KJV to get saved or to tell someone else how to be saved. He certainly does not need a Hebrew and Greek bible as is testified by every single English speaker that ever gets saved. None have ever been saved by a witness who was speaking those languages. All the witness needs...

    KJVONLYism and Gnosticism - Are there parallels?

    I have never in my lifetime ever quoted any of the KJV translators. I have quoted the KJV but it claims in it's pages at least 2000 times to be the word of the Lord or the word of God or it says "and God said" this or that, so I am quoting God. Who else would know what God said that one could be...

    KJVONLYism and Gnosticism - Are there parallels?

    I am not understanding the application in our present context. Explain what you think your verse means. If it is what I think you mean, then the original Hebrew and Greek is in the same classification as the KJV because of the simple fact that they too are on earth and not in heaven. Is this...

    KJVONLYism and Gnosticism - Are there parallels?

    I have asked you at least 100 times over the years what the bible does teach about the preservation of his words and you have never, as far as I can tell, ever presented a case for his true teaching on the subject. The best you have ever done is quote others (some of whom are rank heretics) who...

    Rev. 16:5

    Defending the trinity and 5 dollars will get you a cup of coffee at Starbucks, but it will not get one eternal life. I would not be surprised if there have not been some totally depraved men who have defended the trinity within their religious structures. They probably would not attempt to...

    Rev. 16:5

    I am just telling you something about Egypt that is taught in the KJV. Here is what God said: Jer 42:19 The LORD hath said concerning you, O ye remnant of Judah; Go ye not into Egypt: know certainly that I have admonished you this day.

    Rev. 16:5

    Egypt is always a metaphor for the world and one must always go "down" into Egypt. At least that is true in the KJV. I do not know, but if I did claim to know it would not be because God told me. I would have to believe men, some of whom might be totally depraved.

    Rev. 16:5

    Some things do not need to be proven to me from the minds and sources of men, who are admittedly totally depraved. Some people teaches total depravity as you know, unless they are speaking in the context of the preservation of the scriptures, then the same people will not even admit there is a...

    KJVONLYism and Gnosticism - Are there parallels?

    The NT quotes from the OT and the translation from the Hebrew to the Greek were not always word for word, but they were inspired of God in both testaments. Who would argue with that. This is not sane logic and reasoning to say that God does not have your permission to translate his words into...

    Arminian confusion

    God is the one who justifies. That means he is the one who provides the salvation and sets the conditions for receiving it. Since all men are condemned by their sins, God has provided one means through which he offers salvation from the penalty of sins. This one sacrifice is the only way to God...
