Re: Bore our sins in his body

2 Corinthians 5:21
He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.


Made to be sin on our behalf, then, which part inside or out, is not sin?

“Microchimerism"

Apparently Mary and Jesus are even more closely related than we (even Catholics) ever could presume. An actual physical relationship that will go on forever that absolutely confirms the "Ark of the Covenant" designation Mary has always had in the Church's eyes. Of course, you can go a lot further th...

Re: Who Knows

No Story, no one ever said your dad was going to hell. There is a place for people like your dad, and me and most people, who to a good extent, display the will of God in the form of love. He in His great Mercy will provide for the sake of love. Love is the only thing you can take with you from, one...

Re: Who Knows

Storyteller: I always think of the story of the lost sheep. Christ went out to look for, and save, the one last, lost lamb. How much more lost can a "lamb" be than in hell? What if, just if, God goes out for that last, lost lamb? Sorry Story, I know your heart wishes otherwise but Philip is quite c...

Re: Who Knows

Rick: Edit: okay, after reading my quote that you edited again, I think I could’ve worded it better. Christ’s sacrifice atones for all people, whether or not they believe in him. But only those who believe in him, are saved. Does that clarify it better? I didn’t mean to imply that Christ’s atoning ...

Re: Who Knows

Yeah, just going to leave Universalism alone. We are talking past one another. Just let Stu iron out his meaning if he returns. I don’t think his thoughts had anything what-so-ever to do with Universalism. That was your questioning contribution. Rick: In a nutshell, within universalism , Christianit...

Re: Who Knows

Rick: Universalism doctrine says-Christ died for the sins of the world; therefore, ALL go to heaven. Biblical Christianity doctrine says-Christ died for the sins of the world; therefore, ALL WHO BELIEVE IN HIM go to heaven. I’m just speaking about doctrine. We’re in lock step here. Universalists, n...

Re: Who Knows

Rickd: In a nutshell, within universalism, is the belief that Christ’s sacrifice atones for all people, regardless of whether or not they believe in him. Of course, that’s not biblical Christianity. I didn’t get Stu saying anything other than if all men go to heaven regardless then why the sacrific...

Re: What Makes Human Beings Special?

How about being created in the image of God? No other creature is. If being created in the image of God is what makes us superior/special compared to animals, suppose we discovered intelligent life on a distant planet, and they looked much different from us; does this mean we are entitled to treat ...
