Thanks for the rep and the wise counsel. I agree and it has changed my approach, along with a few other factors. I've too long been trapped by others into thinking the primary focus has to be somewhat direct and adversarial. The true focus has to be on the Simplicity of God and His Rhema. Notice I haven't been online much for several months. That's partially why.
Because you're a good egg with a good heart. I had someone give me a similar consideration on the point, having grown up with an entirely favorable impression of the name and giving the "Oh, brother" when I first heard about the objection, years ago. I'm not looking down on anyone, just trying to shake the tree I fell out of. :cheers:
And when you cannot do that while continuing to do your job, the only thing left to do is quit, yes?
I will note that Vance does not specifically say "quit" in this article (and its talking about police, not military, not sure how much of a difference it makes). But, I don't see how you can read that and still say policing is an honest job.
i. Pre-Fall man—posse peccare (the ability to sin) and posse non peccare
(the ability to not sin). Pelagius taught that this condition remains after
ii. Post-Fall man—non posse non peccare (the inability to not sin). This is
the moral condition of original sin.
Adam's "free will" consisted of the mutability, that is, the potentiality of obedience or disobedience. This is not libertarian free will, the liberty of indifference. Whatever Adam would do it was what he was most inclined to do when he did so do. Libertarian free will claims a choice bereft of want/inclination as if neutrality were possible in the will. This is nonsense and when we use terms like "free will" we need to define them beforehand so everyone is on the same page.
