    Discussion thread: One on One: AMR and JCWR on the Temporality of God

    We can discuss the One on One here.

    http://www.theologyonline.com/forums...ad.php?t=53669

    To be honest I really don't know much about JCWR and I don't know what prompted this debate so I have no idea how this will go or how interesting it will be.

    I'm looking forward to it.

    I admire AMR's theological knowledge and ability in debate and JCWR has proven himself to be nothing if not irenic, courteous and intellectually up to the challenge.

    Let the games begin!

    nothing

    I know this is a kinder gentler TOL.

    But come on now!! I think so far AMR has basically said nothing.

    Nothing!

    p.s. Come to think of it though, there's less there than there normally is to disagree with

    That's too funny
    Contrary to what many Americans seem to think, the document we now call "the Constitution" and the Declaration of Independence are not pretty much the same thing or "connected in spirit," or "two sides of the same coin." The two documents were written by two different groups of people at two different times to accomplish two totally different goals.

    Yet with all his bad theology, he is in the Body of Christ because he believes he has failed, and that Jesus died for his sin and that the Father raised the son from the dead.

    And others that try really hard aren't.
    Jesus saves completely. http://www.climatedepot.com/ http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/

    Titus 1

    For there are many insubordinate, both idle talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision, whose mouths must be stopped

    Ephesians 5

    11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret

    JCWR, has made his first post. Very interesting.

    I like the way he kept it short and understandable.... call me lazy but my eyes glaze over when I see long posts.

    JCWR despises me, from what I can tell. I am surprised he is opposing AMR, another one who does not like me.

    I must say that I am cheering for JCWR, because I think he is right on track.

    The one issue for credibility, though, is that his view is actually the A-theory of time, the one Open Theists resonate with. He is defending the A-theory, but calling it the B-theory.

    Could someone tell him to look into that before AMR thinks he lacks credibility?

    Keep his content, but correct his view to A vs B theory (A is dynamic/temporal; B is static/timeless).

    For a moment there, Bob, I thought you actually understood the nature of entropy when applied to information theory. Oh, the irony! :squint:

    Prepare yourself for some serious glazing to come, then. I am up next in the debate.

    This from one who is a bastion of credibility?

    Anyway, the debate will proceed despite JCWR's apparent confusion on the topic. I will try and clear things up for you both.
