He's nothing but an expert at spouting a doctrine that resides in his head and hasn't touched his heart since he was much younger, if it ever did at all. I wouldn't be half surprised to find out one day that he no longer considers himself a Christian.

    I love the Lord with my very life. This is what gives the love I have for myself meaning and I love my neighbor as I love myself.

    In fact, it is my doctrine (i.e. free will) that gives anything I do meaning. AMR and those who agree with him can't complain about anything. If he doesn't like what I have to say, the only reason he has to read it, according to his doctrine, is because God predestined that he read what I wrote.

    I'm encouraged to find out that my long standing opinion of AMR was dead on correct. It's been years since I've had any direct correspondence with him as he has done me the great favor of completely ignoring me, no matter what I say (its been some source of fun trying to goad him into saying something to me). Its been so long since I've had to deal with him directly that I had begun to wonder whether I had over reacted to him back when he first showed up here on TOL. This one on one has reassured me that he is as despicable a person as I have ever come across.

    That's all complete speculation, of course, but I've grown to trust my intuition in such things. Whether I'm even close to being right about that at all or not, the fact is that I have exactly zero respect for AMR as a human being and believe strongly that men such as Jeffery Dahmer and Hitler will have a better time of it in Hell than the likes of AMR who makes it his hobby to blaspheme the God of Justice.

    Arsenios,

    I know you are angling always for the theosis doctrines underpinning Eastern Orthodoxy, hence your quibble with my words above, which are more cogently stated as follows:
    Alongside of the archetypal knowledge of God, found in God Himself, there is also an ectypal knowledge of Him, given to man by revelation. The latter is related to the former as a copy is to the original, and therefore does not possess the same measure of clearness and perfection. All our knowledge of God is derived from His self-revelation in nature and in Scripture. Consequently, our knowledge of God is on the one hand ectypal and analogical, but on the other hand also true and accurate, since it is a copy of the archetypal knowledge which God has of Himself.
    —Louis Berkhof, Systematic Theology

    I would hope you actually agree that we cannot know things as God knows things. Hence, a bit of pre-reading is in order:

    Bob Enyart invited AMR to take a shot at answering the 50 questions that Bob had asked Dr. Lamerson in Battle Royale X.

    AMR has begun answer the 50 questions in the One on One so we can discuss their conversation here as it develops.

    I like to call this One on One....

    One on One - Enyart vs. AMR

    Battle Royale 10.50

    Or possibly....

    I'll read Bob's posts. The rest will be a waste (or no more profitable than Dr. Lamerson's posts were anyway). Just my opinion.
