Re: CONSEQUENTIAL HISTORY

Ron Kangas is the one who is obsessed.

In the first place, who believes that John Ingalls "just" cared for right and wrong? Of course, John cared for God. That's exactly WHY he was dealing with...

Re: The Problem of Evil

The POE asserts that an all-powerful, all-knowing, all-good God would NOT permit that. But in doing so it assumes we have a complete understanding of good, which we don't. We have some idea of what...

Re: The Problem of Evil

Many people have been through traumatic experiences which they realize in retrospect changed them for the better.

They often say, "What happened was bad. But I wouldn't change it. It made me the...

Re: The Problem of Evil

This is what I meant when I said we don't know precisely what "good" and "love" mean. We have some idea, but not complete knowledge. As such we are unqualified to say that an all-powerful,...

Re: The Problem of Evil

Part of the trouble with the POE is those that think it is conclusive assume they have an absolute understanding of what "good" and "evil" really mean. But assuming such a thing is likely unwise. ...

Re: One Church - One City - Biblical?

You NEVER "get the feeling of the Body." If you did you would just take a vote and go with the majority.

What you do is have fellowship with other Christians and try to hear the Lord's speaking. ...

Re: The Problem of Evil

"If you laid all the philosophers in the world end to end, they would never reach a conclusion."

I have never said the POE was not an interesting issue. I just said it is inconclusive in its...

Re: The Problem of Evil

People have been claiming that kind of thing for centuries. And God is still good and there is still evil in the world, which is an ultimately an indictment of the POE itself. If that's an act of...

Re: New Comic Strip -- MOTA

This is the key point. If the servants in the parable of the wheat and the weeds (Matt 13) were not able to discern real believers from false believers, then certainly we are not able to discern real...

Re: One Church - One City - Biblical?

The LR has never recognized any church which met as the church in the city which did not join the fold of the LR. This shows that the local ground is really just a "first line of defense" in...

All good stuff, brothers and sisters!

Another problem with the idea "practical expression"--which is actually being brought out here but I want to clarify--is that it can become a weapon for...

Re: One Church - One City - Biblical?

Another issue is the false dichotomy of the Church and Ministry put forth by Nee and Lee. Churches and ministries are all part of the Church, but different manifestations of it. There are no...

Re: One Church - One City - Biblical?

I agree with this. The church in the city is similar to the universal church, it is all the believers in that city. But the bible never says they all have to meet together, nor especially that they...

Re: The Problem of Evil

Nope. That's a straw man.

Anyway, I've said my peace. Open minded people understand my point. I'm out of the conversation for now.

Re: The Problem of Evil

The option to love God by definition must include the option to choose not to, i.e. choose evil. Therefore, if you object that God gave us the option to chose evil, you are also objecting that he...

Re: The Problem of Evil

I've already spoken to this. God did not create evil. He defined it. He can't help but define it, because he embodies what it isn't. If you choose it, that's not his creation, that's yours. So I...

Re: The Problem of Evil

Yes, good is God. Evil is contrary to God. Therefore both are defined by God. Good exists as a thing, that is God, but evil doesn't. I think that is pretty understandable.

Re: The Problem of Evil

Well, maybe zeek was saying it more than you.

But the whole "problem of evil" problem, when worked out, either leads to that conclusion, or to the conclusion that allowing the potential of evil...

Re: The Problem of Evil

I was speaking of our will and all our other faculties. They can be used for good or evil. They are the "knife" which can be misused.

Saying God is responsible for the evil acts of his creatures is like saying a father is responsible for the evil acts of his son. Again, it's just a bad argument. It's based on equivocation. There...
