|2 Proverbs 1:1 Be not drawn into dispute concerning neither the King James Only controversy, Eternal Security vs Eternal Insecurity, nor Calvinism vs Arminianism.
1:2 For it tendeth only to frustration. The major portion of thy brethren neither can nor will understand the issues.
1:3 Neither will they answer thee according to Scripture, reason or logic. But their answer proceedeth out of their own emotions and the imaginings of their hearts.
1:4 Take heed unto thyself lest thou assay to challenge their pet beliefs,
1:5 For in the day that thou challengeth therof, they shall turn on thee and rend thee to pieces;
1:6 Insomuch that, if it were possible, even the very elect should be utterly cut off from all rational thought; and that without remedy.
1:7 Cast not thy learning before them that despise learning of any kind.

|You want to know the truth and need to know, but banging you with doctrine won't help? Pray tell, what will help? If the answer to your question is not to be found in Bible doctrine, then where is it to be found?
What would you like folks to be banging you with? Reader's Digest, Popular Mechanics, Southern Living, TV Guide, philosophy, New Age crystals, opinions off the top of people's heads with no supporting Scriptural reference?
If you truly do not want Bible doctrine and a clear explanation from Scriptue, I can recommend about a dozen posters on this Forum who will be glad to oblige you.

|"Actually the question is not absurd at all." Yes, it is. Moreover, it is FOOLISH, balmy, crazy, harebrained, insane, loony, preposterous, silly, and wacky.

|Forrest, you need not apologize. I'm the one who needs to apologize.
Charis is right, "Fear not, Radioman's bark is worse than his bite :-)"
Actually, I don't bite. I owe you an apology. I was wrong. Please accept my belated apology. I was reading too fast and honestly did not notice that what you were doing was making corrections to your copy and then reposting it, which is perfectly legitimate.
According to the respondents to this Forum, there are at least half a dozen unforgivable sins. But neither a misspelling nor a typographical error constitutes unpardonable sin. If anything, you are to be commended for taking care to proofread and edit your submissions. Keep up the good work.
Let no one say of you that you are "monitoring the questions in an inferior way."
Again it was wrong of me to come down on you the way I did. -Radioman
|9||Babies in heaven when they die?||Bible general Archive 1||Radioman||5900|
|1) "...so also are all other elect persons who are incapable of being outwardly called by the ministry of the Word."
NASB Romans 10:13-14 for "WHOEVER WILL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED." How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher?
2) The implication that non-elect babies go to hell to suffer eternal torment and torture is both cruel and absurd.
3) "Also, faithful members of the covenant have the right, based upon the promises of God, to expect that God will work in their children. Thus, Christians who lose a child may be comforted thus, but unbelievers may not."
Surprise! Bulletin! Hello? God does not have any grandchildren, contrary to your doctrine.
4) "...it doesn't work unless you have Reformed soteriology." I don't believe I've ever had that. Is it something you can get by drinking from a public water fountain?

|Apparently, as far as you are concerned, a prohibition against slandering another man's character is not a commandment.
What does your life attest to?

Apology accepted! Please excuse my unintentionally late reply to your posting of 12:52pm. I only saw it a few minutes ago.
Before I say anything else, let me say: I overlooked and was completely unaware of your apology until just a few minutes ago. I regret and apologize for any and all harsh remarks that I posted to you between 12:52pm and the writing of this note (approx. 9:00pm). For such replies of mine to be posted after your apology only compounds my offensive behavior.
Please let me explain something that accounts for, but does not excuse, my outburst. Dr. Scofield has been a favorite of mine since childhood. I am exceedingly sensitive to any personal criticism of Dr. Scofield. But, as I say, this is no excuse for rudeness or unkindness on my part.
I gladly choose to forget our heated exchange and put it in the past. I freely, joyfully, sincerely accept your apology. I must apologize to you for my overreaction to your comment. Will you forgive me?
You had the right intention when you attempted to get the discussion between JVH0212 and Lionstrong back on track.
I assure you I think none the worse of you. It is I who hope that you think none the worse of me.
Consider the sword in your heart removed.
EdB, I would rather be your friend than not.

And I also look forward to sharing that moment when we join hands in heaven, no more to "see through a glass, darkly."
3 John 1:2 Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers.

|I understand how to take medicine literally. But, would someone please explain to me: How does one take medicine figuratively? ? ? ? ? ? ?|

|I, too, am seeing terrible liberties taken with the Bible -- RIGHT HERE ON THIS VERY FORUM. Of course, on the forum EVERYONE is right and EVERYONE ELSE is wrong -- at the same time. The previous statement itself is a good example of the type of reasoning that prevails here.
Maybe we should have a new web address or forum name. How about "Babble-on.com?"
And, yes, I agree with you. It does come down to the actual word the author used -- in every case. The inspiration of the scriptures extends not merely to the general ideas. Verbal, Plenary Inspiration means that EVERY WORD is inspired.
To quote one of those infamous Bible scholars: "Inspiration extends to the actual words."

|Tim, you are so right.
We learn what the Bible MEANS by what it SAYS.
Words have meaning and the Bible will mean what the words say.

|You write: "I have found in the past, that knowledge of certain cultural customs, or ancient language information has helped me to see some interesting points. However, I believe this knowledge to be unnecessary for understanding of the Bible."
Following is an alternate viewpoint, one held by EVERY reputable Bible scholar.
"How to Study Your Bible: Closing the Gaps"
"...in order to get the most out of God's Word, in order to really understand what God meant by what He said we have to close some gaps.
"The gaps in our understanding of the Bible are related to an ancient document. We're dealing with an ancient document. This book is a very old book...it is ancient. It was completed, as you obviously know, in the first century A.D., that's 2,000 years ago, and so we have a very old document. That creates some gaps for us. If we're going to understand the Bible we have to close those gaps.
"Gap number one is a language gap. The Bible was not written in English. [It was written in Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek.]
"So knowing the language is very important. Somebody has to know the language. If you as a Bible student don't know it, you have to have somebody who does know it informing you about it. That's where commentaries come in to be of help to you and study materials and Vine's Dictionary of New Testament Words and Dictionary of Old Testament Words and those kinds of things that help you to come to grips with what the words mean.
"A second gap that has to be closed is the culture gap. That deals not with the speech but with the customs. Speech is connected to custom.
"You can't recreate the scenery biblically unless you know the culture, that's very, very important unless you know the background. Understanding many things about culture, Jewish culture, Greek culture very, very important in interpreting the Scripture. The culture of the mystery religions, the culture of the Pharisees, the culture of the Sadducees, the Romans, the whole situation there, the culture around Israel, the polytheism, the polytheism meaning the many god pagans, the culture of Baal worship, all of that stuff that surrounds the biblical data is part of understanding the framework in which language exists and in which stories are told.
"Thirdly the geographical gap, the geography gap.
"[First] you understand much about [the language and] the culture of the Bible, [then] you understand much about the geography of the Bible, and then you're going to get to understanding the fourth point which is the history, the plot itself. You have to close those gaps.
"Now let's talk about those...those four gaps...the language gap, that gives you the speech; the culture gap gives you the customs and the idioms; the geography gaps creates the scenery, the actual scenario around it; and the history gap is the plot, what's going on historically around that. What is the context of history. I have found through the years that spending a maximum of time on these matters is crucial to all effective Bible understanding."

|"after you have concluded what the passage says . . . consult a commentary or outside source . . . to insure you haven't arrived in left field."
Consult a commentary to insure you haven't arrived in left field! That's the best idea I've read all day.
Could that be what various posters have repeatedly tried to get across for the last six months? Yes.

|"There is a person that visits this forum from time to time that has been taught by "the find a verse that works for you and put it together with other such verses and make a doctrine that you like" method.
"That person is hard to convince they are wrong..."
Yes, there is such a person on this forum. His/her name is "Legion" for there are many.
|19||Should the Bible be taken literally?||Bible general Archive 1||Radioman||15192|
|Yes, Ed, I agree with you. From time to time all of us have done, if not the same thing, then something similar. As I said, his name is Legion for there are many [of us]. :-)
If I would ever claim infallibility for myself, the moment I did so I would be proving that I am fallible. Thanks for your input and your moderating influence in this matter.

|You obviously did not understand a word of what I posted previously. To say that "there are no gaps at all" is absurd and contrary to reason.
