Re: Plumb the depths of Adoption

This is true in the NT.

And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Matt 7:23

Compare:

And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I...

Re: Plumb the depths of Adoption

13 who delivered us out of the power of darkness, and translated us into the kingdom of the Son of his love; 14 in whom we have our redemption, the forgiveness...

Re: Plumb the depths of Adoption

The term refers to the ruling and reigning position of Jesus. At the time of the gospel that was much easier to convey with the Roman term than the Hebrew term. At the time of the gospel Israel was...

Re: Plumb the depths of Adoption

Most Greek stories deal with appeasement (a lower stature person trying to mollify the powerful offended person) or clemency (a powerful person trying to subjugate someone else). I am not aware of...

Re: Plumb the depths of Adoption

The NT and Paul never say that this is "what we got" rather this is what we are foreordained to get, and it is never that "we get it" but rather it is "through Jesus".

Jesus has been appointed...

The term is not that we were "adopted" as it is understood today, but rather

Plumb the depths of Adoption

If "most Christians" do not properly appreciate the depths of Paul's unique use of the Roman legal word for "adoption," then rather than condemning them in front of all the LC's, he should plumb the...

Re: Politics and the Church

What are you talking about. We already have laws where men convicted of sexual crimes can choose to be castrated. That is far more control than we exert on women.

It is a very ugly situation.

Facts:

Re: Politics and the Church

By "christian values" are you referring to where he says he did things as a teenager he is now ashamed of and has since repented of?

Re: Politics and the Church

We are not a purely capitalist society. The fire dept does not work as a function of capitalism (we tried that). Likewise with the police dept and school system.

"Obama Care" and "Medicare" are...

Re: The Psalms are the word of Christ

I view this differently. I have repeatedly been shown in my experience to be foolish and that my thoughts are not God's. As a result I have found the most success in beginning with the assumption...

Re: The Psalms are the word of Christ

Fair enough, lets accept your suggestion that there are human concepts expressed in God's word and let's also accept that there are human concepts expressed in God's word in the OT.

But how are...

Re: The Psalms are the word of Christ

Wow! I mean Wow! Using this same logic most of the OT chapters are human concepts! No wonder he is called the "MOTA" because he alone is able to tell us which parts of God's word are the God's...

Re: Poor poor Christianity?

If you are trying to make a point about "Christianity being invented because the apocalypse didn't come soon enough" then I missed it.

Re: Politics and the Church

I think we can all agree that accusing someone of this crime 30 years after the "fact" on the eve of the vote for their confirmation with an anonymous accusation has the appearance of evil.

Re: Poor poor Christianity?

You are completely mistaken. The fact that there are sinners who are sinning does not mean that the opportunity to receive Jesus sacrifice is not open to them and that should they receive that...

Sure. Oldest forms of currency were simply a simplified barter system (cattle, salt, etc.). Things of value that everyone needed were used as a form of money. The problem is that this is foolish. ...

Re: Poor poor Christianity?

How is this a straw man? You have very clearly said that the blood of the covenant is an unholy thing, it is not "Godly". You have said that the animal sacrifices by the Jews are an embarrassment...
