. . K, I would agree. From God's perspective, he knows who is saved...and they cannot be taken away from Him. However...and I think you agreed...from a human perspective, a person is free to choose and unchoose God as the Peter text clearly states. They had escaped the corruption and knew the Lord a...

Let me reword my opinion on the topic.

I believe in once saved, always saved but only in the context of a steadfast Christian. A steadfast Christian can never lose his/her salvation.

Remember our TAOA discussion? I made the comment "I'm not a calvinist nor a catholic. That may be where we differ." And you replied, "It most certainly is!" Eh, let me just get the actual quote . . . From this thread : Children don't go to hell. I'm not a catholic, nor am I a calvinist. Here's wher...

Please pray for mankind to learn to live in peace and in Harmony, tell your church to do this, its very important. In my opinion...the world turmoil is more of a blessing than the actual "peace and safety" you seem to be praying for. While people are saying, "Peace and safety," destruction will com...

"Once saved, always saved" IS a correct doctrine. You cannot lose your salvation. I agree...one cannot "lose" your salvation. My point above is that one can certainly CHOOSE to opt out. If not...freewill is not really freewill. Choosing and losing are quite different. The Christian community that p...

. . If we Christians truly believe that God endowed his created beings with total and complete freewill, then we must believe that just as we can choose Christ, we can just as easily choose against Christ one day later or ten years later. We are justified by faith but our faith is evidenced by what ...

Re: OK to pass 2nd hand goods?

Yet, there's this passage I believe in Malachi where God chided the people for disrespect when they offer blemish lamb to Him. Does this passage only apply to the "obligatory offering", or does it emcompass all our givings (giving our best)? First of all, this passage and the lamb is teaching a dif...

I've been reading through some stuff on a
web site called Christian Apologetics & Research Ministry and
within this is a page titled, Is Mormonism Christian?.

I believe it offers the information you are looking for.

But (and assuming the Christian view of sin, which it ought to be clear I really don't share, so huge apologies to Keith Richards if he's reading this, I think he's a terrific guy in pretty much every respect and I love his guitar playing) Keith Richards has lived the unchristian lifestyle, and he'...

Re: This had to be written by a woman...

Just proves the point-women are wiser! Though I don't know about your God but my God would never do such a thing. My God says-you leave your parents and cleave to your wife. It seems he places a pretty high importance on women. He says the two will become one flesh-sounds like cares about equality....

people will find the cross foolish, but God still chose the foolishness of the cross as a way to save those who believe That's the nub of it. To you, that's a reason to believe. To me, that's the oldest confidence trick in the book. Sometimes building confidence is the point of the "trick" and so i...

For example, there is Scripture (biblical), tradition (ecclesiastical?), experience (pneumatological perhaps?) and reason. I think "reason" is perhaps being overlooked in the above (rational Christians?). This seems to imply that a "Biblical/Scripture" Christian is without reason and irrational. It...

Hi BW, just letting you know I didn't get that implication in your words, but I just thought to clarify the point further. Also, just something additional to think on is that Genesis only ever says God saw his creation as "good" and "very good." I believe Augustine within the fourth century was per...
