I HATE God & Christians

How do really feel about God and His followers, Ruth ? You say Christians are "close minded". That don't sound too bad ! Well, Ruth, your rant certainly establishes that ~you~ aren't closed minded. Bro. Rat  (Feb 24, 2013 | post #4)

Free will or pre-destination?

"free will and pre-destination are not mutually exclusive" Quite true ! Christian theology maintains the doctrine of Concursus Dei... https://sites.goog le.com/site/theolo gicaldictionary/c# ConcursusDei God's predestination of everything which occurs is compatible with human volitional liberty (and responsibility).

According to your opinion, where doe's Islam fit into G-d...

Another antichrist religion ! Their false doctrine demotes Christ from God the Son in Sacred Scripture, to merely a "prophet " in the Koran. The Supreme Being preserves His Elect from apostate religions, though. The Calvinist Rodent  (Feb 24, 2013 | post #2)

Free will or pre-destination?

As a Calvinist, Bro. Rat can't subscribe to an unlimited and sovereign human Free Will. We have "free" will, and God has Free Will. But our volitional freedom is inferior and secondary to His ! The Reformed Rodent  (Feb 24, 2013 | post #26)

How can any intelligent person claim that God made lesbians?

"How can any intelligent person claim that God made every thing 6000 to 10,000 years ago and that all life forms on earth were made in current form ?" Well, intelligent Christians ~don't~ argue for creation "6000 to 10,000 years ago". Ain't in the Bible. Just flawed scholarship by Church of Ireland Archbishop James Ussher (15811656). All we know from the Scriptures about Time vis-a-vis Creation is that it literally occurred in six 24-hour days (an "evening " and a "morning ", Genesis Chapter One). Nothing in God's Word about when. The Reformed Rodent  (Feb 24, 2013 | post #161)

How can any intelligent person claim that God made lesbians?

"Homosexuals are rejected by God" 1 Corinthians 6:9b-10... "Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God" (NIV 1984 Edition) El Raton de los Datos  (Feb 24, 2013 | post #151)

"For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections" To the extent God lifts His restraining hand in our lives ...we sin ! Bro. Rat  (Feb 24, 2013 | post #149)

Do You Have to Believe in the Trinity to be Saved?

"I hear some people say if you dont believe in the trinity your not saved. Where in the bible does it say this ?" The Bible depicts the Godhead as "Father" , "Son" and "Holy Spirit". If you deny this Trinitarian formula then you rely for your salvation on something ~other~ than the God of the Bible. The DataRat  (Feb 24, 2013 | post #27)

How can any intelligent person claim that God made lesbians?

"First half billion years of earth no life" Bro. Rat, and Genesis 1:34, referred to the first six days of creation. The Tulip Rodent  (Feb 24, 2013 | post #142)

Do you blame gays?

"do you blame them for being here in the Christian threads" Of course NOT ! Homosexuals should be ~welcomed~ in public Christian forums. They need to know their sexual perversion is an "abomination " unto God (Leviticus 18:22, cf 1 Corinthians 6:9-10). http://www.biblega teway.com/passage/ ?search=Leviticus% 2018:22&versio n=NASB http://www.biblega teway.com/passage/ ?search=1%20Corint hians%206:9-10 &version=NIV19 84 Bro. Rat would hope that sodomites https://sites.goog le.com/site/theolo gicaldictionary/s# Sodomites wouldn't dismiss all Christians out of hand as "Fundies ". (Although ~some~ are.) And further that Christians would realize that homosexuality (while being an "abomination ") isn't the only sin. Heterosexual adultery also excludes a person from eternal life ! (And that's just one example.) [ Sodomy, however, being the only serious sin which is publicly defended. Don't often hear thieves protesting that theft is ok. Or murderers arguing that unlawful homicide isn't all that bad. Etc. ] The DataRat  (Feb 24, 2013 | post #10)

God's little helper: Satan

"How can God be 'all-good' if he employs a monster such as Satan ?" What Satan means for evil, the Lord uses for good. The Old Testament mostly teaches by example. And we see an example of this principle in Genesis 50:20. http://www.biblega teway.com/passage/ ?search=Genesis%20 50:20&version= NIV1984 The Tulip Rodent  (Feb 24, 2013 | post #23)

God's little helper: Satan

"Satan presides over Hell" That ain't found anywhere in the Scriptures. Fact is: Satan will be too busy himself being punished in Hell to worry about administrating the punishment of humans there ! But, as Luther said: "The Devil is God's devil". Satan has to get the Lord's permission to do anything (Job 1:12ff). The Devil unwittingly serves the Supreme Being's plan. Hell is first a place of punishment for Satan and the other reprobate angels. Only secondarily it is for reprobate humans. Bro. Rat  (Feb 24, 2013 | post #22)
