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."
If you can get past the terminology, you might have a unique perpsective to add here:
Defending anti-statism to those who don't have at least an elementary knowledge of the ideas is tough.
I still wanted to know you're answer to this, if you have one:
OK, you've had your fun, now come back and rejoin the forum
I even had to post "American Atrocities" because you weren't here to do it, that shows you've been gone too long
Sorry to post three times.... I really wish you'd make some PM space...
While not quite 100 persons deep, I think this partially shows what I'm talking about:
Mind you, I agree with him that this proves N.T. Wright to be unregenerate. But, apparently this proves Phil Johnson is unregenerate too? By what bizarre stretch of logic. Phil Johnson isn't speaking peace to people who deny the resurrection! But of course, the know-it-alls at OTC assumes that everyone is constantly thinking about who they speak peace too the way the people at OTC do, so they automatically assume that Phil Johnson understands the implications of speaking peace to N.T. Wright and therefore declare him unregenerate as well. And even ignoring the Arminianism thing, they'd then declare me to be unregenerate, because I won't say Phil Johnson is unsaved.
Do you see why I think these people are insane?
Continuing from before...
Also, BTW: Chris confirmed for me that the peace speaking thing really does go on forever. He said that in a hypothetical scenario where "peace speaking" went 100 persons deep, essentially if Mr. 100 speaks peace to Mr. 99 speaks peace to Mr. 98.... speaks peace to Mr. 2 (That would be you, the tolerant tolerant calvinist) speaks peace to Mr. 1 (That would be me, the Tolerant Calvinist) speaks peace to Mr 0, the Arminian, they say that if Mr. 100 actually knows that the peace speaking chain leads back to Arminians, that he's unregenerate as well.
Chris Duncan never even got to answering my marriage questions, and I don't think he's going to either. He can't get past the fact that I don't accept his insane peace-speaking theory.
And not only that, he completely lied about my stance multiple times, so I had to spend half my time correcting his misconception. For instance, he kept misreading "There was a time in my life when I did believe it was hypothetically possible to deny the Deity of Christ and still be saved, but I don't believe that anymore" as "I believe those who deny the Deity of Christ can be saved."
