I was raised Southern Baptist and baptized in a Southern Baptist church. Back then, the SBC believed in soul liberty.
This recent resolution says that I hold to false teaching on the atonement: Southern Baptist Convention > On The Necessity Of Penal Substitutionary Atonement
There have been several threads on various aspects of the atonement (mostly on the Penal Substitution Theory). Throughout I've been challenged on my position - which is a good thing - but no one has really asked me what I believe - which is perhaps not so much a good thing. Since we can't prove a negative, I thought I would also provide what I believe to be true in terms of the Cross.
I believe that while we were enemies of God we were reconciled to Him through Christ’s death and having...
...Despite their absolute lack of any EVIDENCE to support their claims, the preterists here still won't admit their doctrine is false. We have gone through at least six complete threads where they've had every opportunity to present such evidence if it existed, but they're still batting ZERO.
Let's pick up a few loose ends from the previous thread. First of all, Mr. kent, MY ENGLISH ISN'T LIMITED. I do lots of electronic communicating, and I often resort to shortcuts, handles, textese, &...
"but you do not believe because you are not among my sheep." (John 10:26)
My Arminian brothers have a problem when it comes to who takes credit for the salvation of their souls, and the point at which they have an issue is at the point of faith.

Often here on the BB, people suggest that an uneducated debater or theologian can be just as effective as an educated one. The idea is that we all have the same Holy Spirit, so education isn't that helpful for Bible interpretation. Well, yes and no.
The answer to the idea that theological education doesn't help much is the Biblical concept of what I call a trilogy of the mind: knowledge, understanding, wisdom. Now that term is not in Scripture, but the concept is there quite often, with...
It was stunning to many people that the U.S. Supreme Court even took up the case of Jack Phillips, the owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop in Lakewood, Colorado, who refused, on religious grounds claiming a violation of First Amendment rights to make a cake for gay couple, Dave Mullins and Charlie Craig, who came in to buy a wedding cake...

It might be helpful to offer 5 or 6 things that you were no longer confident were the teaching of scripture.
Most of us were at first exposed to the Dispensational Premill scheme.
List some examples,and offer your thoughts, here is one example;
in the supposed earthly 1000 yr Kingdom..... were you ever comfortable with the idea.....of The Glorified Lord Jesus Christ on earth with unsaved sinners who eventually rise up in rebellion against God himself as if they could do any such thing?...
The word 'for' appears rather a lot in the New Testament, well over 1,000 times in the KJV and equally often, I think in many other versions.
I was interested to discover that there are 21 Greek words which the KJV translates as 'for.' Just in case anyone is interested, they are:
dia (a few times with the genitive, several times with the accusative)
epi (sometimes with the accusative, sometimes with the dative)
