Re: Lee and LC: Home Runs and Strikeouts

INTP

Not that different.

And I think that we are talking about different things here. My main complaints relate to

1. Lee's kind of Trinity/Triune that majors on the oneness to the near...

Re: 'Ground of the Church'

And they act more like the religious rulers that Jesus spoke against. They really do not care for the flock, but order it around and profit from it.

Re: Lee and LC: Home Runs and Strikeouts

I cannot say what is and what is not taking the "image of God" too far. But I would ask why we have a compelling to come to an understanding of a similarity with God in every possible way as rating...

Re: Climate Change

I saw a drop from about 70 to 15 from early afternoon until shortly after dark. And I've seen it warm up during the night. But this is not unheard of over the period of recorded temperatures in the...

Re: 'Ground of the Church'

While the average member of any particular assembly/group does not engage in the ongoing discussions about the doctrines and positions that cause the separation of meetings, behind the scenes there...

Re: LC Gibberish

Have they written a song to this yet? I could never remember such a convoluted set of words without a tune to sing it to.

Also, I like the fact that it is a palindrome of ridiculous words, thereby...

Re: LC Gibberish

This is the primary sickness of the LC. The idea that having more and better knowledge makes for a better Christian experience and position in God's kingdom.

Not saying that there isn't some of...

Re: Lee and LC: Home Runs and Strikeouts

BTW.

I really like your analysis of "impersonal transformation." We must each be transformed though our active participation, spoken of in Romans 8 as "walking." Not just basking in a trickle of...

Re: Lee and LC: Home Runs and Strikeouts

On the Triune God . . .

I have come to realize that the confusing analysis provided in the Athanasian creed is almost more meaningful than the standard evangelical doctrine of the trinity. And...

Re: Recommended Christian Books, Authors, Blogs or Videos

I would say that there are many good places to seek things for your own learning and enlightenment. But it is difficult to say that any particular one of those is good for discussion with those in...

Re: LSM versus Christian teaching, 1965 - 2015

I have not been a follower of this thread, but started reading through it today. The quote, below, from one of the earliest posts, concerns an area of concern to me as I have been reading in the...

Well, you said it well.

Re: Politics and the Church

The last time I checked, the kingdom of God was not in the business of abortions. That is in the kingdom of the world.

While God may have used Israel to deal with the sins of the Canaanintes, most...

You fail to note that I did not specifically argue that you or Ohio were anything. All of the things the two of you passed on are essentially found in the public media, mostly in...

Re: Politics and the Church

The whole premise that the conservative side (Republican) is God's and the liberal (Democrat) is of the devil is a tale spun by the kind of ignorant people who believe in America as a Christian...

Re: Politics and the Church

Actually, I did not attribute the quotes at all. You are the lame brain to jumped to make them into being about you.

All from the smartest man in the room.

Re: Politics and the Church

How much of the media seems to (or is) against him is really not a cause for lying. But for Trump, it makes him want to double-down and talk about how to simply shut them up.

As for the caravan,...

Re: Politics and the Church

Yes. The mode of releasing the information was a grandstand of the worst kind. But you mistake mode of release for veracity, or lack thereof.

All of the claims of lies you make are without merit....

Re: Politics and the Church

Probably best not to try to define the source of any of our positions.

I am a third generation Republican (don't have enough information to look beyond that). My Grandfather despised Roosevelt. I...

Re: Politics and the Church

The "mostly" was left out. His life does include the drinking and partying, along with the rather sexist behavior that some of his HS and college friends recalled. Excusable after enough years of...

Re: Politics and the Church

I'm beginning to conclude that the only smear campaign is being orchestrated by Trump. It is time to play "Apprentice" with him and declare "you're fired." One term. No more. Maybe less, though I...

Re: Politics and the Church

First, not picking on ZNP here. Just using this one comment to discuss. I see that he is in agreement on part of the following.

I agree that it should be a matter of finding the truth, not making...

The presumption of innocence technically does not apply to nomination confirmations. The question is not whether the person should or should not be jailed, or even just put on parole. It is whether...

Yes, that is exactly where we are. And there is a Kitchen Aid mixer whipping it to a frenzy . . . . the Tweeter-in-chief himself. The official Divider of the United States.
