<sigh>Have you thought about what total inability means?
I wonder if you can post a thought without being incredibly insulting.
Yet, I posted a thread about Cornelius from Acts 10, an unsaved man who was wanting to be saved.
Do you want a "Hero Biscuit" for wasting everyone's time?
Remember I discussed justification by faith in the OT from Rom 3-5?
I find that I lose brain cells whenever I read your posts.
So I tend not to bother reading your posts.
I am not assuming that a command implies ability, I know it does.
You are in error.
Acts 17:29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device. 30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: 31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.
You've demonstrated a "command".
You have NOT demonstrated that it "implies ability".
I did not even have to try hard,
I can tell.
That's why you failed miserably.
Theo, and I gave you scenarios above that demonstrates your teaching of total inability is inconsistent with the scriptures.
No, actually, you didn't.
How are you going to handle that?
You posted Scriptures.
We believe Scriptures.
You demonstrate that don't UNDERSTAND what the Scriptures teach.
How am I "going to handle that"?
I'm going to continue to live my life, love God, study the Scriptures, and reject your heresies.
And I'm likely going to put you on "ignore" in the near future, since the more posts of yours I read, the more brain cells die. And I don't like it when my brain cells die.
Are you just going to say that I am mean to you and therefore you are not going to answer?
No, I'm going to say you ignore my reponses, and misrepresent me, so I'm not going to waste my time answering.
Over the years I've found that bullies with gigantic chips on their shoulders, such as yourself, know nothing about what the Scriptures teach, and are simply seeking attention. That's why they (you) constantly harass people who have no desire to hear from them.
As I say, the more of your posts I read, the more of my brain cells die.
Yes, I have thought through them. I have given them lots of thought. That is why I am here. Because I don't think most Calvinists think on their own.
More insults by you.
This is why your posts are a waste of space.
It is more like programming. I think there might be a point when reasoning and logic is no longer possible. I was amazed at the responses in my Cornelius thread. It is not at all difficult to follow the logic in that historical offering yet it seems like no one gets it. why is that?
Because you don't understand anything.
If my teaching is false I don't want them to accept it. But, it is not false and the scriptures nowhere presents us with the Calvinist teaching of total depravity.
You are mistaken.
But you should not mistake your misguided stubbornness, for truth.
It is just a dark miracle that a person of your intellectual stature and achievements could be persuaded to fall for something like that. An average 5th grader would know better.
Why do you think that people who you constantly insult are going to care at ALL about the false teachings you proclaim?
Read my Cornelius thread and you will see an unsaved man doing all the things your religion teaches that an unsaved man cannot do. We will talk about consistency then.
No, we won't.
Because I'm not going to waste my time.
God forbids me from wasting my time.
