Re: Is impeachment and removal from office possible? What would it take?

Can I get an example of this "radicalism"?
Just keep reading the daily news - you'll see plenty of it. But perhaps what I see as extreme liberalism, you see as a good thing.

Re: Is impeachment and removal from office possible? What would it take?

If Trump doesn't lower his loudmouth, arrogant, aggressive style, and become more presidential in his delivery, he might very well lose this coming election. Not by ticking off Republicans, but by alienating those more moderate and independent - ESPECIALLY women! He thinks the same bombastic approac...

Re: Does or does NOT God change His mind?

K: There's a third possibility, which is there are just contradictions. :twisted:
A bit like considering oneself being in "married bliss." :roll:

Re: Does or does NOT God change His mind?

It's a rhetorical question - mostly wanted people to discover the many places in the Bible that are mysteries or apparent contradictions. If God could change His mind, then He would not always be the same - or rather, of one mind with ONE collective and perfect knowledge of ALL things past, present ...

Does or does NOT God change His mind?

OK, so there are many Bible difficulties that might, on the surface, SEEM to be contractions, yet further study and analysis that can be explained or reconciled: https://carm.org/does-lord-change-or-not (as further below). And there are many such Scriptural difficulties - here's a list of them, fro...

Abel: I mean in the alt-right media we have everybody from Christians to atheists, agnostics, pagans, etc and even things that sound like conspiracy theories to me,but they still strive overall to get things right as far as the news and politics goes. Abel, you constantly rail against the sensibili...

Re: Open theism

Paul: If God controls or manipulates or over rules the choices people make, then they don't have free will. Incorrect!!! First of all, NO one has unlimited free choices to make - AND humans have limitations of what they are capable of. The Bible is full of intentions of evil people that God thwarte...

Re: Is impeachment and removal from office possible? What would it take?

As long as Washington's Senators can make it there permanent home, nothing will change. It mostly stays all about getting re-elected. Term limits are urgently needed! Also, wish there was a way around the parties that control so much vetting, etc. Joe Blow has no chance of getting on the ticket, muc...

Re: Open theism

Notice God did NOT make Pharaoh's heart hard - as it was ALREADY hard and determined to abuse God's people and resist Him. What God did do is hardENED his already hard heart - fixing him in his resolve and determination (amidst immense pressure from his people and leaders to immediately get rid of c...

Re: Open theism

Consider: Proverbs 19:21 ESV Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand. Proverbs 16:9 ESV The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps. Psalm 115:3 ESV Our God is in the heavens; he does all that he pleases. Isaiah 45:6-7 ESV Tha...

Re: Open theism

Paul: If he controls outcomes, then He is accountable for results, both good AND bad, see the issue? When I say He controls outcomes, I mean ULTIMATE ones He desires - and those could be immediate or long-term outcomes. Obviously, if one takes the position that God controls every action and intent o...

Re: Is impeachment and removal from office possible? What would it take?

To be fair, IF a president is impeached too close to an election, that election should be postponed for six months.

Unless Trump does something really outrageous and dangerous, there simply is no way the U.S. Senate is going to send him packing!

Re: KJV only version that's inspired?

A really good way to study Scripture is to study multiple translations of the same verse, side by side. Here's a great tool for this: https://www.biblestudytools.com/compare-translations/ For instance, look at this comparison of the translations of Genesis 1:1 from the above tool: https://www.bibles...
