yes, I understand and appreciate philosophy but your diagnosis is
I understand the within the Bible is "theology" which includes
which includes a system of thought or systematic theology.  Either you
made this reply without first reading through my entire response or
are being obtuse.  I am distinquishing between regeneration and
conversion, as the scriptures do.  I've already commented on this.

If you do not have a mind for such things then perhaps you need
to reassess why you are posting in this NG!

You're rambling and your sentences make no sense.

Neo!  Neo?  Is that some new term you heard today?  I suggest
you first learn its definition before you employ it.
Besides that rediculous miscalculation on your part, you chose not
to reply to the content of Packers statement, which is my own
thoughts on this as well.  Again I ask, what are you doing here if
you are unwilling to discuss point -counter point?

Now where is there any content in this?  You skirt the issues
entirely.  You try to dismiss an argument by overstating it.  Very
dishonest and very immature.  You present your self as being
very shallow in your considerations.

You seem not to know your bible very well.  My grade school glass
easily answer your question.  Do you not have the leading of Spirit to
recall those scriptures that speak toward such things?  Besides, I did
reference a verse and why it supports my position.  You are unable
to grasp this elementary thing?  How about Eph 2:8 and "not of your
selves." Also, as already noted, if we are "chosen before the
foundation of the world" and if we cannot come to Christ unless
the Father draws us, and if none seek after God and if all are
dead in sin, and all are living in darkness, then were in your
theology is the capacity for a self-willed response?

Yet synergism and semi-Pelagianism is employed.  Aquinas
brought in Aristolism and RCism has ever since employed it.

And how does this support your supposition?  How do you think
you actually answered the point I made concerning the dynamic
of Lazarus rising from the dead and distinction to be made between
regeneration and conversion?  You've answered nothing.  Where
is you substantive rebuttal?

Eisegetically.  You bring your presuppositions and then read into
what is written to seek support for what you have already determined
to be so.
Again, you apply a term that you have no understanding of if its
definition.  Neo-evangelicalism would not stand in opposition to
your position.  You really do need to "study to show yourself

It's not a church under the Biblical teaching.  The NT church has no
ecclesiastical priesthood.  No sacramentalism.  No new order of
sacrifice.  No intermediaries.  etc etc.  It is an organization.  It
an ecclesiastical organization but an organization none the less.

This is like talking to a little child.  What is your point in
posting here?  Obviously it isn't to discuss.  Obviously it isn't
to grow in understanding or to allow steel to sharpen steel.  Cant
you even address this issue of "should" in regard to your proposition
that this verse supported your position?  Are you able to even
follow the progression or development of thought here?  Don't
get me wrong, I'm not pontificating here.  It's just that your
responses are, are, are...... non-responses.  There is no content
in them!!!
> But not of texts of your neo-evangelical friends, I don't want mind
Again, your presuppositionalism is showing.  What is wrong with
the thought of being educated by your elders?  What is wrong
with the thought of learning from others who have tread the path
not only of a longer duration, but a deeper mining of the truth.  Do
you think you can walk this path all on your own?
Besides, the RCO is best at mind control through its employment
of indoctrinization, not biblical teaching.

Do you reread what you write before you post it?  Are all your
pencils without erasers?  Your sentence structures either are
to make sense of or they are meaningless completely.
You keep make this request and I keep providing you with not only
scripture, but the theological reasoning for it.  I've already
you several times.  Why not respond to those specific notations?

Again, it seems that English is not your native tongue.  Is that so?
Look at the > >> and you will see that I did not deny your quoting the
verse.  But you have not replied to my question.  How do you think it
supports you?  As I have been saying, you present these verses as
if no development or defense be made that you are right in your
presupposition.  I asked for you exegesis.  Why are you ignoring the
request?  What do you think is actually be taught in the verse and
how do find support for that conclusion?  Is this too much to ask
of you?

Plenty of scriptural references for my position and a discussion
on what is being distinquished and why.  Where is your equal?
