Rising above a narrow view - wisdom of God

Over my approximately 45 year journey of God's word I have grown in many ways and in some ways much less. One area that is of much value is rising above the narrow views I once held. I was, and am, an avid student of God's word spending hours upon hours in study although not as much today as I used ...

Re: Conditional Grace & Unconditional Righteousness

Genesis 6:5–9 New King James Version 5   Then the L ORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6   And the L ORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. 7   So the L O...

Re: Computer Home Page

I thought I would ask an innocent question, trying to avoid controversy and stimulate some discussion. What “Home Page” do you use on your computer? It has been a while since I have used anything other than the typical web browser homepage that generally shows my Favorites and Frequently visited si...

Re: Can one be outside of God's will and not sin?

I believe that Jesus is only doing the works of the Father. Jesus is at perfect harmony with His Father. I do not believe a case can be made for Jesus doing anything that is outside of the Fathers will, but not against that will. It seems we are back to what the will of the Father actually is? I gu...

Re: Can one be outside of God's will and not sin?

In John 5 Jesus says: The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise. I have a question for you and it might be better for another thread. We can certainly discuss it in another thread if need be. According to t...

Re: Can one be outside of God's will and not sin?

Considering the prayer as sinful isn't a problem unless one holds to a belief that Paul needed to remain sinlessly perfect. To me, Paul missed the mark with these prayers. And, he admits as much. In my view, Paul could have sinned like any saint can and may have done so, but his request would have ...

Re: Can one be outside of God's will and not sin?

Indeed all we have is what is written. Three requests, three denials before God pointed Paul in the proper direction. Curious - why do you make the assumption there were three denials? I cannot pull that from the text in question. Where do you derive that information from? I do see Paul besought th...

Re: Can one be outside of God's will and not sin?

There is one aspect of this topic that we have not approached and that is faith. Can a man receive what is asked if he does not believe what he says will come to pass as Jesus said? The thing is Paul was not answered with a no, but was answered with a different solution with an explanation of suffic...
