I was thinking back to the post by Dave Taylor and realized it really didn't gain the information needed to really know which camp people are in. Deacon later said that most people are Classical theists. But over half are voting something other than Armenian or Calvin. But I realize that some declare themselves to be "other" when they are for the most part classical theists.
So this is likely a two-parter. And I'll start with this question and take recommendations for the second...
In theological discussions (recently with a discussion of Penal Substitution Theory) a term often crops up. This term is “necessarily implied”.
The problem with the term is that it bridges the gap between two opposing methods of viewing Scripture by bring both exegesis and eisegesis together as an acceptable mode of “interpretation”. Quite simply, if it is not actually in the text of Scripture one can say it is “necessarily implied” as a way of masking the eisegesis, or the foreign element...
Does Monergistic theology teach by grace faith through salvation? The interpretation that reneration precedes faith is at issue. Election precedes the creation of mankind (Ephesians 1:4) and therefore precedes faith is not at issue here. Ephesians 2:8 teaches faith precedes salvation saying, "by grace ye are saved through faith."
I began a teaching a video course on interpreting the various OT genre in our Sunday morning Bible study.
Two weeks ago a class member ventured ahead of the class and read the question below.
He was quite concerned about this multiple choice question.
What are your impressions? How would you answer the question and how could you relieve his concerns?
Why should we read OT narrative like general fiction literature?
a. Doing so allows the modern reader to contribute meaning to the text that...
In a closed thread @davidtaylorjr wrote, "This shows a lack of knowledge with regard to textual criticism. It also tries to act as though these verses are not included in the new translations, they are. I am looking at the long ending of Mark in my ESV right as I type this. This is a red herring argument."
I never said that the ESV did not cite it. I gave it as an examle, yes. ESV omits from Luke 4:4, "every word of God." 90.7% of the evidence has the reading, only 0.4% omit it. There...
And behold, a lawyer stood up to put him to the test, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” He said to him, “What is written in the Law? How do you read it?” And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.” And he said to him, “You have answered correctly; do this, and you will live.”
But he, desiring to justify himself, said to...
I would like to explain why free will is necessary for us to fulfill God's greatest commandment and how we can establish a true and solid foundation for our belief system.
First, I would like to point out that everyone, no matter how good their intentions, how intelligent, or how well educated they may be are all susceptible to selection bias ( Selection bias - Wikipedia ) It doesn't take long to see how selection bias has crept into these debates time and time again in the past. People on...
It's also a Friday crucifixion view, but doesn't require a figurative approach to 3 days and 3 nights.
Matt. 12:40 For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
The Wednesday crucifixion view takes the 3 day and 3 nights literally, but fudges on clear third day passages, like those in Luke 24. It ends up making Sunday the fifth day (forth if you delay counting until...
