When civic posted this verse, I am comforted that my Savior would never misrepresent what others have said.
Jesus stated, “What comes out of the mouth proceeds from the heart, and this is what defiles. For out of the heart come evil intentions, murder, adultery, fornication, theft, false witness, slander. These are what defile a person.”
It is a blessing that God will meet you at your need, and perchance compassion instead of the justice we all should experience.
Before you post anything that you can't substantiate, think about your witness for Christ and how a purposeful misquote will be taken by lurkers. We claim to be honest, let's actually be honest.
Why would I need to substantiate anything, when all you have to do is look back thru the trail of posts and you can see exactly what i am saying. Do you actually read the posts that you make comments about?
Thank you for taking the time to respond to my questions. I'll work on responding to your post here for about 10 minutes, and then I'll have to move on. Due to time limitations, I'll just respond to a few of your comments.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 faith is not to equate them but rather to understand through a Calvinist view how exactly that idea gets worked out- example: God gave us the capacity for evil and for sin and indeed decrees that they will happen and then that they will work together for his good but when it comes to his creation “faithing”, if you will, he draws the line?
A good and perfect God could have created a good and perfect world. Why does sin exist at all when he decrees everything… just questions I had... I did learn that questioning Calvinism is not for the faint of heart
I’m sure I’m a pretty poor poster too so no worries!
There’s a lot of reasons I was asking- yes, I do have a hard time reconciling these ideas to scripture and yes, I also don’t see them rationally explained but that’s also my opinion and seeking to understand became a bit of a war here which was not my intent so I backed off. I’m not interested in fighting at all- just really did have some questions that I felt like asking my husband would cause more anger than worth because these questions naturally elicit passionate responses-
Anyway, this thread went in all kinds of directions and I felt wasn’t probably the best of me to even ask- I haven’t been on a forum before and I’ve learned a lot-
