Re: Plumb the depths of Adoption

So Paul is talking about what we get (authority) as opposed to who we are (born again sons of God). I've never taken issue with the adoptive stance and the organic stance co-existing, I have always...

Re: Plumb the depths of Adoption

The meaning of adoption under Roman law was still a legal transfer of identity. So it does not matter how much better Roman adoption was to adoption today, or what benefits it brought, when its...

Re: The Psalms are the word of Christ

Then there were plenty of heretical groups trying to Reform the Catholics as well, the Cathars for example.

I don't know what history books you are reading.

The history books I read, by real...

Re: The Psalms are the word of Christ

Let us not forget that in "Life-study of the Psalms" Lee says that every Psalm is a spiritual supply to us and we love all the Psalms and that the Psalms are fully Christ-centred. This somewhat...

Re: The Psalms are the word of Christ

FYI Psalms is actually a collection of 5 books and not all the Psalms are cited. If Christ did not cite a certain Psalm we should ask ourselves why.

Where it concerns the Law, most Christians...

Re: The Psalms are the word of Christ

Further to the scholarly sources which I presented that shows that Huss did not recover justification by faith alone, here is a ChristianityToday article which supports the idea that Luther recovered...

Re: The Psalms are the word of Christ

What are your sources to say that Hus taught justification by faith alone? This article by ChristianityToday says otherwise:

unlike many other reformers, Hus retained much of Catholic theology. He...

Re: The Psalms are the word of Christ

Luther recovered justification by faith that's a historical fact.

There is a research article The Recovery of the Doctrine of Justification by Faith F. W. Dillistone, First Published July 1,...

Re: The Psalms are the word of Christ

Yes Psalm 22 which is about Christ.

But every Psalm? It's possible but the New Testament record does not show that Jesus quoted all of the Psalms, unless he did in fact but it was not recorded....

Re: The Psalms are the word of Christ

I think that if Luther were here on this forum today he would be praising Lee for "sticking to the books which present Christ to me, clearly and purely". If that is what Lee was doing then if we...

Re: The Psalms are the word of Christ

That would change things I suppose.

But we know the enemies David was speaking of was Absalom and those with him in the rebellion.

Re: The Psalms are the word of Christ

There are many parallels between Lee and Luther. Like Lee, Luther also distinguished between scripture which shows us Christ and Scripture which doesn't. Luther wrote:


Let us banish this Epistle...

Re: The Psalms are the word of Christ

Human concepts in the writing, copying and interpretation is also a good point. The recovery version footnotes addresses some of these as well by pointing out different meanings of certain words. ...

Re: The Psalms are the word of Christ

I would hold onto the 20% and the 80% would still be valuable.

All Christians who read their bible do this sort of dividing anyway, because of human bias, preference, background etc. Every person...

Re: The Psalms are the word of Christ

David's failures reflect our fallen human condition and inability to keep the law. They do not reflect Christ because Christ did not fail in anything.

Solomon is still a picture of Christ, as is...

Re: The Psalms are the word of Christ

Human concepts are those which contradict the New Testament plan, which seem good to us (and the world at large) but which contradict God's plan in Christ. They include law-keeping for righteousness,...

Re: The Psalms are the word of Christ

What about the particular Psalms in question. Do you think that David was justified in desiring death upon His enemies when those enemies were sent as a punishment from God (i.e as a consequence of...

Re: The Psalms are the word of Christ

I don't know why some people react in horror when it is mentioned that the Bible contains human concepts.

The Bible is including humanity, God and also Satan - the three main parties that were...

Re: The Psalms are the word of Christ

Why should David the sinner have disqualified Psalm 16? Psalm 16 is about Christ because of Acts 2. Psalm 2 is also about Christ because of New Testament quotations.

A good test of whether a...

Re: Attending Different Churches: Divisive attitudes

Firstly, the legitimacy of a church and legitimacy of the speaking are two separate matters so I will address them one by one.

We can choose who we believe is God's oracle. Whether they are or...

Re: How do you know the Lord's leading?

I will try - my way of telling Aron "you could put more effort into answering the question than using it to attack the recovery". I have taken the Psalm thing to the other thread where it belongs....

Re: Attending Different Churches: Divisive attitudes

You have the choice to choose who you think is God's oracle or not, and which church you want to go to.

I thought you wanted simple answers, before you just wanted a yes or no answer, and I...
