  • Looks like you came and went...well, if you come again nudge me and I'll send a friend request. I'm purging inactives over a year to see what that does to the list. :cheers:
    I've been meaning to say welcome aboard. This place is hard on newcomers. Too hard really and I see you've stuck around since the first of the year, so you must be of hardy stock. :)
    i would reply to your verse but can't for some reason.??
    suffice it to say as a summary that
    Jesus limited his omniscience as a human and grew in Grace and knowledge.
    the Father revealed things to him.

    if you want i would like to discuss further but am heading to bed.
    You are welcome, and my prayers (along with hubby's) will continue through your recuperation.
    I will keep you (and your pretty wife) in prayer as you go through the surgery.
    Reps on TOL 'can' be a status thing. As far as I use it, it is just send quick messages and perhaps pertinent links. Such is more social and perhaps a bit of feedback on something said. In Him -Lon
    I used the Contact Info tab above with the send via email option. I cannot see the email address so it is likely the one you used to register with here. I deleted your posted email address on my profile page unless you want email from all and anyone. ;)
    I do not know. In fact I was surprized when he mentioned a church. A lot of OVers do not attend a church at all.
    You have correctly analyzed his hermeneutical problems, and your rebuttals have been perfectly clear. I have gone round & round with him for years& cannot get past his literalism nor his hatred of Calvinism.
    Note: My quote below is from Sproul's commentary on the WCF in his Truths We Confess vol. 2 (pp 69-70).

    Harnack began the process of humanizing God and what now is known as open theism.
    Adolf von Harnack, for example, wrote a book translated into English as What Is Christianity? Harnack argued that the essence of Christianity is found in two principles, the universal fatherhood of God and the universal brotherhood of man. Ironically, those two principles are actually foreign to Christianity. God is not the father of everybody, except as their Creator. When the Scriptures speak of God's fatherhood, they describe a filial relationship that exists only between God and his redeemed children. Only those who are in Christ have the privilege of addressing God as Father … it is so insidious when people talk about the universal fatherhood of God. It is an extraordinary privilege that we [Christians] can address the Creator of heaven and earth in terms of filial and personal intimacy … The Bible speaks of a universal neighborhood, not a universal brotherhood. That is, every person is my neighbor, but only fellow Christians are the adopted children of God.
