As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, but if clicking on forum on homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

  • "acquired" in Trinitarianism VS "adopted" in Adoptionism

    The conclusion that reconciles Scriptures is that God/theWord acquired a complete human body (including soul) and come under the influence of the non-omniscient human senses/nature.

    So according to your Trinitarian view...

    Christ is the Son of God in respect to his divine nature; but that as a man, he was only acquired as the firstborn of God.

    Whereas CARM says that according to Adoptionism...

    Christ is the Son of God in respect to his divine nature; but that as a man, he was only adopted as the firstborn of God.

    It would seem that a boy who is adopted is a son, whereas a boy who is acquired is a slave.

    Since the dictionary defines adopted as "to choose or take as one's own; make one's own by selection or assent".

    And the dictionary defines aquired as "to come into possession or ownership of; get as one's own".


    I do not agree with either the Adoptionism view that Jesus was adopted or the Trinitarian view that Jesus was acquired.

    I believe Christ is the Son of God in respect to being transcendent God immanent (manifest) in this creation...

    For this creation, YHWH God (the only one who transcends all creations) determined to create a universe with a kingdom of redeemed humans (living souls) for his glory where he would reign as a living soul himself. The Scriptures describe how God would accomplish his plan. In an instant, transcendent God (God the Father) created the supernatural and space-time of this universe and also became immanent as a spirit (the Spirit of God) and in the form of a living soul with a spiritual body (the Word of God). God the Father created all things within the universe by the power of the Spirit of God commanded by the Word of God. But whereas God created each of us, God himself as the Word is Jesus. At his birth, the Word exchanged his spiritual body for a natural body to be made like us so he could make reconciliation for our sins. At his resurrection, the Word regained his spiritual body and he will also give each of his elect a spiritual body when he returns to reign in his kingdom forever.
