The Transition has Already Started



  • Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me

  • a pondering:

    I wonder about the Calvinists doctrine of an all-encompassing decree...

    Wouldn't it have been the same for God merely to create such a thing in His mind and not enact it? The moment He created everlasting people, it became real. Real people who would spend eternity in hell if it so pleased Him.

    It don't make sense:

    Life is just a play, and we are all playing our pre-appointed parts, with our pre-appointed scripts and pre-appointed cues, our determined dialogues, our determined wardrobes. But it would have to even go deeper than that. Even the thoughts of the actors were constructed by the Director/Composer/Screenwriter.

    God, in essence is the Master of Puppets in Calvinism.

    How boring that would be for God. God created for His glory, right? Is the only way that He can recieve glory is by pre-scripting it unto Him? Must He force people to give Him glory?

    If it is a play that He wanted, without any surprise, without any spontaneity, without any freedom or legitimate liberty, why would would He play it for real?

    It sounds like Mount Olympus where the gods are playing around with the mortals in their whim. But with God, the consequences are real. He has pre-determined and appointed men to populate hell, where they will be tormented forever.

    Could He not create in His image and likeness and woo people unto Him?

    Can anyone imagine for a moment that God has created the world in such a way that it in a real sense is not pre-appointed?

    Why must the prevailing view of God's sovereignty be that He must have pre-appointed and pre-determined all things?

    It is fallacious to imagine that for God to be in control of His universe He must therefore foreordain and initiate everything. In fact, it diminishes God to suggest that He cannot control what He doesn't foreordain and originate.

  • Colin, yes, that is a good proverb. I hope people will not be fooled by the ultra-liberal in moderate clothing.

    Hi Gojira,
    you took me off your links. Was I a bad girl?

    We agree!

    I don't!

    I still need to get over to your place and check it out!

  • Antonio,
    I love ya, brother! Did you purposely go off-topic here? Is there a connection I am missing? haha

    Your thoughts are along the same lines as mine, though, in regards to the "Calvinists doctrine of an all-encompassing decree."

    I especially like this quote:
    In fact, it diminishes God to suggest that He cannot control what He doesn't foreordain and originate.


    Hi jel,
    I am sorry to insult hillbillies!

    The options for a pro-life person as myself are looking very limited right now. It is not comforting.

  • I am still smiling. I copied, linked back to you and posted at my place.

  • I love it. I like to say that Ms. Clinton has already been President for 8 years so she shouldn't be able to run. If I could say one thing positive about her, she did come down to my area when we had the floods in June, so as a senator she did ONE thing I do appreciate. ;)

  • I am glad you liked it, Bob!

    BJ? BJ Scoggins? Thanks for the visit. I am so pressed for time. I miss writing. I long to have some time to wrtie some more. New baby is a big adjustment.

    Hi Kenny,
    You are right, I think!

    Hello, Ibex!
    I have missed seeing you around! I used your line about Hillary having already been president for 8 years. I like that!
    That was nice of her to come and see you during the floods. Then again, it is the least a senator should do!
