This is how I know this debate will sound like.
Imagine you have a WHITE car and some man comes and says it is BLUE.
You ask him to show you where it is blue, So he proceeds to tell you a car must have four wheels, an engine, when you turn the key it turns on the car, and when you step on the gas it moves around, so therefore the car is BLUE!
He will emphasize all that is True to obscure his falsehood which is the car is blue when it clearly is not.

And they Sing the Song of Moses . . .
Rev.15:3 and Deuteronomy 32
Then I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous: seven angels having the seven last plagues, because in them the wrath of God has been completed.
And I saw something like a glassy sea having been mixed with fire, and those who prevailed over the Beast, and over his image, and over the number of his name, standing on the glassy sea, having the harps of God.
And they sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and...
NEW ORLEANS (BP) -- New Testament scholars N.T. Wright and Simon Gathercole addressed the meaning of the atonement at the 14th annual Greer-Heard Point-Counterpoint Forum, Nov. 10-11, at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.
The question considered was whether substitution -- the view that Christ died in the place of sinners -- is enough to communicate the full meaning of atonement. In a departure from previous Greer-Heard forums, this year's event featured conservative Christian...
Retribution Theology is basically the view that good deeds result in good things happening. That one who sows evil will reap evil. "One who sows to the flesh will of the flesh reap a whirl wind." Galatians 6:8
The thinking that bad happens as a result of sin is seen in the question given to Jesus, "Rabi, who sinned, this man or his parents?" (John 9:2)
This same thinking is carried over to expressions concerning God's wrath.
That God MUST have satisfaction for all injustice done to...
Does the Church condemn those who disagree with its teachings?
Ask any Catholic and he will say "of course not!".
The RCC has declared "If anyone says that the sinner is justified by faith alone, meaning that nothing else is required to cooperate in order to obtain the grace of justification, and that it is not in any way necessary that he be prepared and disposed by the action of his own will, let him be anathema" (session VI, can. 9).
Sounds like a condemnation correct? Not so fast,...
The reason I ask this question is because of the central importance of Jesus to the Quran and the Semitic history of the Arabs. It seems to me that Sunni and Shia Islam are about as out there as Mormonism and should be given the moniker of "false Gospel" by Christians instead of being treated as entirely Pagan religions like Eastern Religions and Greek Mythology. It seems that Islam is an erroneous take on the truth rather than a faith that never cared about the truth to begin with.
in a recent thread, John 3:16 was cited.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (NIV)
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. (ESV)
for God did so love the world, that His Son -- the only begotten -- He gave, that every one who is believing in him may not perish, but may have life age-during. (Young’s Literal)
We can start off this thread with full agreement ! ! !
2 Peter 1:16 For we did not follow cunningly devised fables when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of His majesty. 17 For He received from God the Father honor and glory when such a voice came to Him from the Excellent Glory: “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” 18 And we heard this voice which came from heaven when we were with Him on the holy mountain.
From the Faithful Word Bap church thread
Very few people change their minds on strongly held opinions due to interaction on the BB. I know of no Calvinists who have become Arminians. I know of no Arminians who have become Calvinists. I know of no KJVOs who have accepted the modern translations, and know of no proponents of modern translations who have become KJVO, due to the BB.
So are you able to prove Tom wrong?
Have you changed any doctrine because of what you have learned on BB?
