I need you around to take some of the flaming I'm getting
No worries. I wasn't even really offended, just curious. I don't mind being called out, in fact if I'm teaching falsehood I want to be called out. I hope you didn't take my antinomian accusation to heart either. I too believe in monergistic sanctification, though I don't think synergistic sanctification is as bad as synergistic justification. I think I have good reasons for feeling that way, but its something we can discuss another time.
I'll comment on your thread, though it will probably be later today. I Haven't checked the board today, but if you haven't commented on your active hardening thread, I'd advise you to check it.
So I can't stake out a theological position (which I get from the Bible itself) that says some churches are true churches and some churches are not? The Bible says this. I will tone it down a little, but why are you buying in to this crusade against me, Bryan?
For what its worth, its not just you. I've been getting it too. I think its just spiritual blindness. What else could it be?
I believe you. Then again, I know someone in my church who said he sided more with Van Til but I know he would never say anything like that. Maybe he doesn't really understand what Van Til believed?
I'm honestly kind of down/stunned right now. I really thought Theo was solid. Sad...
Epistemology came up in this thread, and you were mentioned multiple times, you may find this interesting: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthr...omise-on/page2
In the light of the post I +repped about a minute ago, I have to ask you, do you REALLY think turning anyone here into a Carpenterite would be an improvement?
I was hoping you'd respond to this thread: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthr...ported-slavery I'm curious what your Biblically based stance on this would be, despite the fact that its not technically a religious thread.
OK, so this guy "Icon O'Clast" just joins out of the blue, posts one thread about marriage being a "religious" topic and then proceeds to bump my James White destroys Marc Carpenter thread in order to post 2 OTC articles. Marc Carpenter has used the "Iconoclast" label before here: http://agrammatos.wordpress.com/2010...e-evil-part-3/ Are you curious at all who this new poster is, or is it just me?
I'd still like an answer to this, even if its "I still don't know."
