    Do you think it is possible to be right on every Biblical doctrine?
    Do you believe any man can have a good understanding of every single truth in God's word?

    Are you that person?

    Nice try! :thumbs: I wonder if there is anyone crazy enough to actually claim to understand everything about God...wait, didn't David Koresh think he understood everything about God? :smilewinkgrin: :laugh:

    THere is one poster who seems to think that. He shocked me once when I posted a thread about going sinless for an entire day.
    He said he has before.
    So I would not be suprised by any more self righteousness from him.

    I believe the One in whom I have put my trust has taken care of all my doctrinal defections, for "in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge" (Col 2:3).

    In our present state...

    No.
    No. No woman either.
    No.

    1Cor 13:12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

    :laugh: Maybe I'm a little cynical tonight, but I just don't see how any person could possibly honestly believe that about themselves. We have all sinned and fall short of the glory of God, right? :1_grouphug:

    We all know who you are talking about...so quit with the accusations. It is arrogant and un-Christ-like. It seems to me that YOU really enjoy pointing fingers at this poster...do you ever admit that there is the slightest possiblity that you could be wrong? Quit trying to get the speck out of somebody else's eye and remove the beam from your own. This poster NEVER said he was perfect...but it seems to me that you want to attack him because you reject what he has to say. Instead of responding in a Christlike manner, you attack him...then you turn right around and say he is self-righteous. That is being hypocritical...like what Jesus told the Pharisees in Matthew 7:1-2.

    Sounds like you have an agenda. Every single post you make about this poster is a personal attack.

    Actually, more than one person has said they can go a day without sinning, on this board, or at least that it is certainly possible for one to do so.

    While I do not know what is prompting some of what I am reading the last few days (nor do I especially care), I do not recall standingfirminChrist, as being one of those individuals who made that particular statement, nor am I involved in any personal disagreement with anyone particular person, to my knowledge.

    My disagreements, on the BB, with any and all are doctrinal.

    Going sinless for a day doesn't have anything to do with being right or wrong about certain---if not all---doctrine

    Personally----I want to "square" myself up as close as possible to every doctrine the Bible lays before us-----like a Civil Engineer planning a bridge span over the Mississippi River----he's got to be right on every account----so, yes, I believe a person can be "squared up" with Bible doctrine

    So, Dale??? Why are you worried about somebody saying they can and have gone a day without sin??? Does it bother you that maybe they can--maybe they're right---why should it bother you

    Again----your statement about being right about every Bible doctrine and then stateing that someone on the board has gone sinless is two different subjects----is a statement in the mind of this moderator "not well taken"

    Back to the original OP----is it possible to be right on every Biblcal doctrine???

    So stick to the original statement and disregard the statement of going sinless for a day

    I don't think the OP meant it his way, but here's the way I take it.

    I think I'm right on the things that I know enough about. Surely no one here goes around saying, "I'm right on this one, but on this other one, I'm wrong." I'd much rather say, "some things are settled with me. On these other things, here's where I am right now, but I may not be there tomorrow. I'm open to more light." There are a few propositions where I simply have to say, "I don't have a firm opinion."

    The sovereignty of God? Settled
    His attributes, omnipotence, omniscience, omnipresence? Settled
    His immutability? Settled
    Salvation by grace through faith? Settled
    Eternal Security? Settled
    Substitutionary atonement? Settled.

    Baptism by immersionof believers only? Settled.
    Non-sacramental ordinances? Settled.

    Eschatology? I'm historical premillenial, but I didn't used to be. Open to more light.

    Do I think I'm right on everything? Yep, as of today. Tomorrow, I may find that I'm not. I've revised what I believe too many times to hold otherwise.

    Because of my many shortcomings, I don't think I can go sinless for a day. For that reason, my gaze is on Jesus, my Lord and Savior. He paid the price I couldn't pay.

    Of course.

    Absolutely. (And I'm the only one.) :laugh:

    Well, I wasn't for sure who he was talking about, but since you attacked dale in this post, I can figure it out now...

    Thanks...

    Does he really think he can go without sinning for a day?

    Yeah, right Tim.....your nose is growing! All I did was point out to Dale that he was attacking SFIC (without naming names). Wasn't hard to figure out. Everybody knew and so did you.
    For what?
    Galatians 5:13 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
    Galatians 5:14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
    Galatians 5:15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.
    Galatians 5:16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
    Galatians 5:17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
    Galatians 5:18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.

    If it were not possible for a believer to "Walk in the Spirit", why did God say to do this? Nobody is perfect Tim....it's a daily struggle (Gal. 5:17), however God has given us the Holy Spirit in order that we will have victory over the flesh through Christ...this is a promise.

    Until Linda's false accusation against Dale, I wouldn't have known either
    I also believed it to be another poster, he's a Pastor.

    Probably the same person Ed Sutton was thinking of

    But do you think it is likely that you will change your perspective on anything?

    I prefer to think of it this way: I am not consciously aware of being wrong on any particular issue. I believe that it is highly likely that I am unaware of some deficiency in my understanding of doctrine.

    Response to Question A: No human is perfect--it is the goal we should all strive for, as directed to by God, but I don't believe it's possible on this earth.

    Response to Question B: I believe we can reach a good understanding of MANY truths. Great biblical scholars and thinkers have probably even reached a good understanding of MOST truths. Those same greatest Christian minds would tell you that their own wisdom and learning was never enough, because God is infinite and we are not. We'll understand it all "by-and-by", but NOT here-and-now.

    Response to Question C: Not even close. I learn something every single day--sometimes from the BB, even!!! :laugh: I'm just sorry there has to be such unhappiness about it at times! :tear:
