  1. I just started looking at the Constitution Party platform since you recommended it awhile back. There are some good things in it, but there are also some concessions to statism that I think are dangerous despite the fact that I'm moving away from strict anarcho-capitalist libertarianism. They support regulation of "obscenity", which isn't really defined, they support some drug restrictions, and they are careful to show their respect for agents of our currently illegitimate state (veterans), as well as condemning attempts to cut their benefits despite the fact that they are paid out of our pockets and for participating in unjust wars for an unjust system.

    The Constitution Party isn't all bad, and I might support some of their candidates, but I don't think there is any party I can support on principle (LP is pro-choice so not an option) I respect strict theonomy even though I'm not sure I agree with it yet. I don't think anybody believes what I'm starting to believe these days.
  2. My vm from June 15
  3. What last one?
  4. Are you purposely dodging that last one?
  5. Do you believe that it is possible to ethically justify joining the military or the police in modern day America? Or would you agree with me that it cannot be justified with our country in the state that its currently in? What would be your reasoning for your answer, one way or another?
  6. OK, so my question is, with relations to Galatians, how is it that you can call Roman Catholics on this board "brothers" even though they add works to the gospel just like the Judaizers did? How is adding baptism as a requirement in order to be saved any different than adding circumcision as a requirement?
  7. I would interpret the Galatians passage as Paul addressing his fellow believers about the errors of the Judaizers, teachng the Gentiles that they can only become Christians through the works of the OT law.

    The 2 John passage is a warning to stay away from deceivers at the time who were trying to convince others that the Messiah had not come yet. John is reminding his disciple that Christ has come, and if you're not in the Messiah, you're not in the Father.
  8. Out of curiosity, how do you interpret Galatians 1:8-9 and 2 John 9-11?
  9. Thanks for the compliment
  10. Thank you, my dear brother-in-Christ. It is a privilege to be sharing God's truth on these forums with Christians like yourself. I am encouraged by you.
