Ah, trying to lead me, are you? of course...but a saying about a horse and water comes to mind From my perspective you have missed the forest for a tree. You haven't grasped the breadth of the gospel but have fixated on the element of belief (which you then restrict in meaning). I can conceive of m...

hey Jac, hope all is well. Is K still behaving? saw the snappy title to this thread and thought I would give it a look Believing in Christ for salvation means to trust His promise that, because of who He is and what He did, He is the guarantor of eternal life if you just trust Him for it. please cla...

Re: And the Word became flesh

So, how is Jesus any different than the rest of the prophets in the sense of being the Word of God? Thanks. a few things to start with: a) read Hebrews and observe the contrast made by the author between Christ and the rest b) note how prophets say "This is what God told me to tell you" whereas in ...

ttoews, I understand your concerns, but part of the problem I have with your entire line of thought is that you aren't offering an alternative. you were supposed to do that too Now, apart from everything else you have said, I simply submit that Jesus MUST HAVE been separated from God (the Father) o...

thanks for the response Jac...your position is the one I last held...its just that when the question came up I questioned the presumptions that founded that position and my doubts remain notwithstanding your efforts. For what's its worth I'll continue to point out the weaknesses that I see in your e...

..., does it not logically follow that, to use classical terminology, God "turned His back" on His Son? And, how else do you explain Jesus statement on the cross? Jac, I have a bit more time so allow me to expand on the difficulty I have with your explanation. Yes, Jesus calls out from the cross in...

Sorry this took me so long to get to, ttoews. School/work/church has been crazy as of late. no problem, its the same at this end Anyway, this gets into a question of what exactly happened on the cross. Primarily I draw this conclusion from 2 Cor. 5:21. As the NASB reads: He made Him who knew no sin...

Firstly, I would agree that the Christian's greatest desire is to see Christ return to reign physically on this earth. shouldn't that read "a dispensationalist Christian's greatest desire..."? K: you mentioned Constantine. I'm not so sure he was a blessing. Yes the persecutions stopped, but then th...

However, at the death of Jesus, the Father was forced to turn His back on the Son and the Son took sin upon Himself. It is possibly the greatest mystery in all of Christianity: how can God die? But, He did . . . the Son was separated from the source of life for three days. Jac, this came up at a st...
