Re: Hi

Some of them are still around. Yes, just thinking of Rick's personality makes me cry - with laughter! :lol:

Re: The Toolbox argument against Intelligent Design

My, my, how extraordinarily complex must have been the supposed evolutionary mechanisms blindly stumbled upon by non-intelligent things, and how utterly dependent they would have been upon just the right things and conditions somehow brilliantly coming into existence 11 or so billion years before. I...

Re: Brother ill

Looks like they are sending my brother home with a antibiotic catheter drip. He says they give him a 50% chance of eliminating the infection and preventing toe removal. He told me he and his "pinky" greatly appreciate your prayers!

Re: A Re-Post on Calvinism

My take is that he’s cherrypicked Scriptures to fit an unScriptural theological construct based upon the logic of men! BTW, BOTH Arminians and Calvinists make this mistake! What God predestined was that He so would save all who would be willing - WITH HIS HELP - to begin to be drawn toward loving Hi...

A Re-Post on Calvinism

Love without free will? Not possible. Hell - just our refusing of God... Yes, forced love is NOT love! Was just thinking about this - the very fact that God is sovereign AND He actually hates the very sins He nonetheless has chosen to allow us the freedom to commit (but for a limited period) - that...

Re: Sounds like Al was not a big fan of God.

Clay, yes, God must FIRST make it possible for a person to believe, and his enlightening is effective upon those so WILLING to listen to His prompting. But God clearly gives men a choice to accept or reject Him. Scripture teaches BOTH of these are true - and there is no contradiction between them. C...

Re: Brother ill

Thanks, Blessed, and for all praying! Here's what I know, as of last night: The doctors want him to lose his small toe. However, they say he could go home with an anti-biotic drip port, which would give him about a 60% chance of curing the infection. As long as its monitored, there doesn't seem to b...

Re: Sounds like Al was not a big fan of God.

It really doesn't matter how smart you are. OTHER THAN, often people who are - or at least seem to be - very smart, are rather full of themselves. Which leads to God's least-favorite sin: Pride! Such people are exceptionally impressed with themselves, and often think their intellect makes them supe...

Re: Sounds like Al was not a big fan of God.

Should read "my main point is that salvation is available to EVERYONE - except those who blaspheme against the Holy Spirit" No one today can commit Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit - least not as per as it is specifically referred to in the New Testament. Because Jesus isn't walking amongst us hea...
