  • I have an idea!

    I think a Battle Royale needs to exist that is truly a Battle Royale. Something with teams.

    I think there should be a battle with me, Sozo, Lawless, and emahoslove, maybe e4e, on one team. And godrulz, keypurr, STONE, and whoever else believes in keeping the law for righteousness, on the other side.

    What do you think?

      I must have missed this the first time around.

        I'm afraid I do not believe in keeping the law for righteousness. We are saved by grace through faith in the person and finished work of Christ. I also believe in the Law of Love. The commandments are summarized as loving God supremely and others equal as ourselves. I am also not antinomian and reject lawlessness. Because I love Jesus and others, I will not murder, kill, steal, commit adultery, etc. I cannot be saved by being a moral person or a Pharisee. Keypurr is a Sabbatarian, etc. If I was on their team, I would get kicked off their island.

        I like the idea of a group Battle. However, few of us agree with each other on every point. Each thread is like a battle. I would also enjoy an Open Theism vs Calvinism battle more than one on the nuances of sanctification, since your team and myself are basically in the Protestant, evangelical tradition in the area of justification.

        You would kick me off your island, and I would not want to be on the losing team of the 'law' island. I am in the New Covenant of Grace and am not a very good OT person. I do not know half the dietary and ceremonial laws. I like Augustine's idea of "Love God, and do as you please." This is a royal law of loving God and others.

          It seems to have been an interesting proposal, but, obviously, the teams are going to have to be re-thought. And, just possibly, the definitions of the sides.

            I think that's probably too many people for a debate. It would get ugly.

              They would probably have to agree on a single post, rather than each getting a post.

                Could they agree on a single post though?

                  Not a chance! It would take months to get through a single exchange.

                    They would take turns.

                        That would save time, and amount to almost the same thing.

                            I should probably take a moment to state that I still think it is an interesting idea, no matter improbable.

                              Yeah, I do too actually. There has certainly been no limit to the amount of discussions this topic has raised around here.
