Also, I am definitely not looking to attend a "Reconstructionist Church". I think that very concept is stupid.
Hey, Sola. I know you mentioned you are a former reconstructionist, and I've noted that you often ask people if they are. While I am not one, several people have predicted that I'm eventually going to become one. Why do you think that's such an awful position to hold (at least in comparison to anything else) and what's your Biblical argument against it? Note that I'm only asking about reconstructionism as a political theory, not the federal visionism that is often tied to it (some reconstructionists are against the Federal Vision.)
If you ever have the time, I'd love to continue the conversation we were having here: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthr...19#post5768519
You should start posting again.
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
