    Grandstand discussion: "Ghost's Views on The Nature of Christ"

    This thread is made available for members' opinions and comments regarding the new One on One Debate between AMR and Ghost entitled "Ghost's Views on The Nature of Christ."

    The debate can be found here.
    "The immutable God never learned anything and never changed his mind. He knew everything from eternity."

    " The difference between faith and saving faith are the propositions believed."

    Okay, to get things rolling here, we need to know whether or not there will actually be a one-on-one. We wait with great curiosity to see if the opening post receives an answer. Stay tuned!
    Galatians 5:22-23 (New International Version)

    But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

    What are my fruits today?

    "Moral standards" are a lot like lighthouses: they exist to help us stay on course as we sail through life. But we have to steer BY them, but not directly AT them. Lest we end up marooned on the shoals of perpetual self-righteousness.

    Well basically ghost is paranoid of AMR's intellect. And instead of actually defending himself against AMR's accusations by spending some time reading up on the the things he's being accused of and thinking about how his views may differ, he's simply denying the claims by attacking AMR's character and motives.
    Ghost feels free to constantly attack Calvinism whenever he feels like it, but then he throws his toys out of the stroller when he's challenged.

    I partly agree with this. While the debate itself is not that compelling to me....one of the participants suffers from APD(antisocial personality disorder) and displays a classic textbook example of sociopathy.

    So, it's interesting to observe the interactions from that standpoint.

    How do you know this? Do you dress your opinions with technical terms for impact, or have you made an examination? I doubt you know the person you are referring to as having mental disorders. What specific textbook are you referring to when you say one is a sociopath? It would be better to use laymen terms; such as wacky, or
    So, what?

    believe it!

    Do you know what sociopath means? Have you even bothered to look it up?

    It's not the same thing as psychopath. Let your fingers do the googling before you speak next time.

    Keyword = sociopathy

    I think the Incarnation was a good choice. Very clear theology and a tough one to run from. Then again, ghost can be rather ghost-like, walking out the door with mystery, not to be seen again for months...
    Let's hope he enjoins the battle.
    Futility: "More than at any other time in history, mankind faces a crossroads. One path leads to despair and hopelessness; the other, to total extinction. Let us pray that we will have the wisdom to choose correctly. I speak, by the way, not with any sense of futility, but with a panicky conviction of the absolute meaninglessness of existence."
    - Woody Allen

    Hope:
    Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
    Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthyŚmeditate on these things.
    Philippians 4:6-8

    You are not boring! Your behavior can be quite reprehensible at times, yet, in the main, theologically, I am with you.
    I wonder, in passing, why you are so angry?
    Your sense of humor is quite endearing, otherwise, I'd simply have to ignore you as a great parochial clod!
    On occasion you can be quite insouciant.
    Do carry on in your own inimitable fashion.

    I am rooting for Ghost. I do not believe that Jesus had two natures. I just cannot find any scriptural support for that view. Jesus is God the Son, God incarnate.
