    It's literally everywhere....literally. And it's not accurate to say they are "conflicting". God decreed countless things that were against His commands, in.order that His purpose would stand in the earth....and that purpose does include glorifying His justice in the judgement of the wicked.

    There is God's revealed will: Do as I command. And God's decree: What I've purposed, I will bring about. These two wills are not the same. The Bible is replete with examples of God decreeing things that are against His revealed will for an ultimately good purpose. The verse in Matthew is an example of one of those things.

    If you read the rest of that verse, what Jesus is proclaiming is a judgment against the religious leaders of Israel. They killed the prophets and and prevented the people from knowing God. When you understand other parts of the Bible, you understand that the Jews rejection of God was part of the purposeful plan of God. Read Romans 9 through 11.

    The analogy doesn't comport with the Bible. The Bible describes man as being DEAD in sin. The proper picture would be if you had a car in your yard with a free sign, and there was a corpse in the yard next to it. Dead men don't accept anything. It's important to have a Biblical conception of man before you start painting the picture, or you'll get the entire painting wrong.

    HU advocates synergism, which is against the Westminster Confession. His misunderstanding of the Westminster Confession was pointed out to him by Reformed Observer. So, why isn't he guilty of a capital crime? The entire idea of capital punishment for theological beliefs has no warrant from Scripture, or the apostles. It's a holdover from Rome.

    You saying I'm "taking things out of context" is meaningless. You don't even know what the context of anything in the Bible is. You read John chapter 6 and you tell me what the context is. Also, you saying that I'm "proof texting" like that is some kind of bad thing is ridiculous. That is what a Christian does. He looks to the Bible alone for His doctrine. If he believes anything theologically, it's because the Bible teaches it.

    The website you are quoting from is a cult website that promulgates the "serpent seed" idea. It's completely refuted by Scripture.

    I, too, enjoy using the King James (Authorized Version) Bible, and it has been my main translation since I was a young boy. In fact, several years ago, I would have almost considered someone a heretic if he didn't use the KJV. However, as we become older and, hopefully, more mature in our faith, we come to realize that many of the theological positions we used to hold were wrong. The exclusivity of the KJV is one of those positions, for me. Though I believe it to be the premium version for English-speakers, I also recognize that its language can become a stumblingblock for many people. Therefore, other translations have to be used for understanding, memorizing, and citing of God's word. So, I am not a "KJV-Only" person. Having said that, I find that the ministry website of the Trinitarian Bible Society has some very good information and insights about why the KJV still ought to be used as the standard version for English-speaking Christians and churches.

    That depends on your worldview, particularly as it relates to whether human beings have souls or not. From a Christian worldview, no, consent is not always the precondition for any behavior. In fact, if God did not give us new hearts by the Holy Spirit ("being born again") to trust and follow Him, then no one would consent to believing in Him. That's because we're all born in sin, and our natural selves don't want anything to do with God, due to that sin nature. But once again, if one rejects the Christian worldview about the nature of human beings, then that person has to justify why pedophilia is objectively wrong, given the assertion that human beings are just biological machines subject to the laws of chemistry and physics. And to insert the need for consent in sexual behavior goes way beyond biology, chemistry, or physics. Otherwise, consent becomes an impossibility, or, at best, just something that is dependent upon impersonal and random material forces which no human being can control unto himself.

    Right. You believe salvation requires something from man. Therefore, you believe salvation is not free. That is a false gospel. Read Romans chapter 4 to understand what the real gospel is. If something was required from man in salvation, then it wouldn't be credited as a gift, it would be an obligatory payment for something done. But the gospel is not a payment from something man does. It's a completely free gift. Man can't boast about anything that he did in His salvation. It is all because of God.

    Pete, either salvation is free or it isn't. Romans chapter 4 talks about this. Check it out.
