Man was given authority over all of God’s creation, and abusing any of it is sinful. The fact of ecological sin is already in force, God said it. We don’t need anyone else to add to it.
Hi Alan. I'm all for being good stewards of God's creation but when it comes down to labeling something an "ecological sin", it seems a slippery slope. Who is qualified to establish what is an ecological sin? And what will be the infallible measure?

The bible is exceeding clear that "sin" is the transgression of the law (1 John 3:4). The "law" was given at Sinai and in the wilderness so unless "ecological sins" can be found enumerated there..... let's not become guilty of adding to God's law like the pope and his committee of devils are doing.

I know some Jews will have the Scripture in very tiny pieces of paper posted on their doors; part of keeping an Old Testament rule.
Probable from this text:

Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes. And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. ***And thou shalt write them upon the door posts of thine house, and upon thy gates:*** Deut 11:18-20

Sadly, they've been wrongly taught for millennia what "these my words" were/are for if they had understood correctly they'd be sons and daughters of the Most High God and brothers and sisters of His Redeemer, Christ Jesus.

The sheer stupidity that passes for wisdom these days isn't worth wasting a keystroke. And the "faithful" hang on every word this fool utters.

Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. 1 John 3:4

Why can't all of you simply wait for the facts to be devulged?
You should be suspect of any individual making all of the decisions for our country. And when questioned, there is always subversion to avoid answering Yea, Nay. Hardly do we hear a straightforward answer from this president. He plays the blame game always and says he never asks for forgiveness because he doesn't need. This should give everyone pause.
There is too much confusion among our leaders. Don't add to it. Make sure you hear both sides of an issue before severing your brain from reality.
God turns man to believe lies if they don't want truth.
Whose facts shall we wait for? The Dems' or the Repubs? If one side is telling the truth the other side is lying. It seems you already have your mind made up that the Repubs are lying so why lecture us about waiting?

Good one, Lurker. Back when I was going to school, they had the 4H Club. Now it’s 4N: Nuts, Nitwits, Nudniks and Nincompoops. Graduates go on to become liberal journalists and politicians.
Hey Doc.,

Just curious. You had 4H Club in second grade or third before you were drafted?

"Washington Post columnist: 'if you're conservative, you're automatically a racist'"

If you're a Washington Post columnist, you're automatically an idiot.

See how that works?

Hi Lurker, they are considered natural rights because in nature, created by God, we see that demonstration of survival instinct is intrinsic in the design. One needs no permission to protect wife and children, it's not up for discussion. The arguments from those who for generations have become comfortable with having govt as a parental authority/entity ignores this. Today in the US, those who would entrench themselves as parental authorities here, use tragedy to increase control, not because they give a rip about victims, but because they fear an armed people. As the fallen who lust for power should.
Still waiting for someone to explain how America would be safer if I no longer had my single shot .22. If anyone thinks the issue is about mean looking black rifles, they are deluded.
Hey Mike,

Thanks for your thoughts grounded in reality. Obviously, I concur.

But as for that .22 varmint rifle; I'd encourage you to not offend or neglect it as it may pull its own trigger and seriously injure someone. After all, guns kill.

Blessings to you and yours, brother. I'm going back to the shadows of reality.

Thanks for your take, Lurker
Perhaps Deism, the belief existing at the time of the founding fathers, selectively picked and embeded such 'natural right' into American existence without caring for the whole context of the law of Christ.
It is true that spirits are frenzy regarding the topic, which has become totally entrenched in American nationalism as an untouchable sacred cow, yet there is no reason why this should be out the pale of biblical check.
Thanks for your thoughts
Regards
Thanks sister B. I appreciate you taking the time to hear out our particular situation. It's not an easy one.

Personally, I don't believe we, as a nation, will be able to put an end to the mass shootings. In my opinion, the best chance we have in our power to curtail them is to do away with gun free zones at schools, churches, shopping centers, etc. They are an open invitation to lunatics who can't handle freedom.

Aside from that, God has the solution but He isn't speaking just yet.

Blessings.

Thanks Lurker for yours.
So to be an American means the right to bear arms. Where did that come from?
From a revolutionary war of which like-minded leaders wrote a Constitution perpetuating the idea.
Not so, sister B.

The right to bear arms, among other rights specifically enumerated in our constitution, are considered natural rights. They are not granted to the states and the people by the federal government, which could just as easily take them away, but are considered inalienable rights granted by our Creator. In this regard, an old idea has not been perpetuated. I'm sure you could argue the biblical legitimacy of a natural right if you choose but, right or wrong, that's the way it is.

As I said earlier, any attempt to infringe on the right to bear arms will be met with fierce resistance. So you can hypothesize all you want but it isn't helpful as it doesn't deal with the realities as they exist here.

Lurker,
Self-protection comes in many shapes, colours, and sizes, gun obssession too.
Americans need to separate the two.
[…] Definitions need to change in their heads, along with reading their politics with insight, before they can perceive the folly...
Sister B,

I offered a rationalization of the defensive steps this congregation in the article is taking to preserve life. You offered criticism but no workable alternative.

I believe they are doing what they believe best for their own safety in their setting. I'd go a step further and post a sign out front: "This is NOT a gun free zone."

You live is a society where the general population is barred from bearing fire arms. We do not. The right to bear arms is grounded in our constitution and any attempt to infringe that right will be met with fierce resistance. That's just the way it is and we in the USA have to deal with it accordingly.

We have to deal with the possibility of some sick nut-job copy-cat waltzing into a gun-free zone and killing innocents, with deadly force if necessary, without infringing on the right of the rest of the law abiding citizens to defend themselves, family and property.

An unwillingness to view this from our perspective is unhelpful.

Self defense comes in many forms, which includes ducking, and taking cover. Self-protection is tantamount to a lack of faith, and denying God's sovereignty? Give me a break.
Hey Chris,

I believe our brothers and sisters across the pond are focused so keenly on guns they are missing the point of the news item and the discussion: Self preservation.

Self preservation is instinctive not only for people but for animals, plants, etc. All of God's creation has the innate drive to live. Fight of flight is instinctive.

To employ a gun defensively is no different that putting on a seatbelt when driving; getting a vaccine shot for the flu; getting an annual wellness check from your doctor; installing locks on the entrance doors of your house; etc.

But when it comes to preserving life with a defensive firearm, the Brits say the Americans are trusting in their guns and not God. Apparently they have no idea how silly that comes across.

There were two instances where the seed of the word had a start but then fell away.
Such became partakers of heavenly enlightment from the Holy Ghost and even it says that they received the word with joy, went forth and *believed*, but their end was not of true enduring permanence:

"They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, *receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe*, and in time of temptation fall away.

And that which fell among thorns are they, which, *when they have heard, go forth*, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection."

It could be said that such are cases of tasting of heavenly things in vain.

Amen to that, sister B.

I had the parable of the sower/soils (Mark 4:1-20) in mind to couple with the Hebrews 6:4-6 text but didn't have room. I believe the two texts together demonstrate precisely what has happened to Joshua Harris.

Many will say he was saved therefore just needs to get right with God. But the fruit he now bears reveals the state of his stony heart.

. . .

Thanks Chris,

I agree with your thoughts. As for me, I've said all I have to say so will step back to the sidelines.

Blessings

Lurker:
Respectfully —The key to the passage that tells us the spiritual condition of the named is found in v4 "...and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost..." (Hebrews 6:4) to partake means to receive a share of. Lost people don't get a piece of the Holy Ghost. You must consider the context of the passage, which begins in Hebrews 5:12- it is discussing those who did not mature, and the leaders if the church, former Hebrews, who are used to the sacrifice, could not wrap their head around the fact that One time sacrifice was good enough, so were preaching salvation again to those who fell into sin, in lieu of making them get right. He was telling them it was impossible for someone who is saved and worldly to get re-saved. They just need to get right.
Steven, Thank you for an interesting interpretation of the text. However, I respectfully disagree. For what it's worth, so does Matthew Henry.

The apostle was saying it is impossible to renew unto repentance those who bear thorns and briars, in spite of their ever so religious past, whose end is the lake of fire. Nothing about getting right:

Heb 6:8 But that which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned.

Again—we don’t know his heart. I’m just making the suggestion that he could have been saved and now he’s running from God.
For that, there is still a penalty—just not hell. Matthew 5:19
Not possible, Steven. Rejection of God and His Christ by a born again believer is a pretty serious falling away.

Heb 6:4-6 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.

If, as you suggest, JH was saved, by what means could he be renewed unto repentance? There is no remedy remaining for him. And if there is no remedy for a once born again fallen man, then the Son failed to keep His Father's will to lose none of all that were given to Him of the Father (John 6:39).

However, what is possible is JH has never experienced the new birth and could still be brought to submission and repentance by God.

Sorry y'all but Fred is right. We have the freedom to walk away from Christ. He will never let us go but we can let go of Him.[…] Every promise of salvation in the scripture has a condition. If we fulfil the conditions the promises are ours.
Indeed the promises of God have conditions. But you wrongly assume man has the ability to fulfill the conditions. The responsibility and ability falls to the Son.

John 6:39 And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.

It is His alone to redeem in time and preserve that which was given to Him.

Jude 1:24-25 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.

Joshua Harris fell because he was none of His but an antichrist, goat, tare.

1 John 2:19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.

"Not of us"? Not of the Father given to the Son.

Sadly, the constructs of men (CF's, creeds, systematic theologies, commentaries, etc.) continues its work of division amongst those whom God has made to stand in His sight as one new man in Christ by His free gift upon regeneration. It's been going on for centuries.

I wonder how God will look on this come judgment day..... brothers/sisters casting away brothers/sisters over petty disagreements which have no eternal consequence.

Ps. 51:5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
Commentary by: Charles H. Spurgeon
Thanks for that commentary, June.

If I'm not mistaken, that's the third commentary on Psalm 51:5 you've posted and all three have the same in common:

1) All obviously uphold and promote the doctrine of imputation of original sin.

2) All are reformed.

3) All willfully ignore Psalm 139:13-16.

How is it possible to say 'I love God with all my heart, mind, soul and strength' yet willfully ignore a portion of the word He inspired because it casts a cloud of doubt over a man's doctrine? Seems a bit hypocritical to me which is why I will never associate myself with the reformed label. Still, I've never denied anyone the right to be wrong.

Have a great day June.

You and Bro. James have been misrepresented, slandered, and gossiped about for days on this thread, while you both have been patient and gracious in your comments.

Are you absolutely certain that David was speaking of his own sin and iniquity and not his mother's?

Ps 139:13-16 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.

A sin ridden, dead on arrival, fetus written in the book of life?

Okay John. You've made it abundantly clear that you will not engage legitimate biblical questions but will ever practice deflection and diversion.... So be it.

Have a great rest of the day.

. . .

June,

You can ask me about my beliefs if you want. I don't bite. The answer is NO, I'm not Arminian.

John just can't get over the fact that his version of original sin isn't biblical and he can't convince me otherwise. That's why he falsely accuses me of such things as humanist, cultish, mysticism, etc, etc. to which I won't even dignify with an objection. It doesn't bother me. God knows my heart.

John and I have been on the comment board for around 13 years and have discussed about everything there is to discuss. There are a few here who know both of us well and our beliefs and if they had a mind to speak up I believe would say that I'm none of the things John accuses me of.
