  1. I wonder if you would mind answering a question for me - and I would prefer a simple, straightforward answer because I am a relatively simple bloke. Have you ever been a member of this site under a different name? Actually another question, if I may - what name would that be, if you have indeed previously been a member here under a different name. Just wondering, because your way of answering sounds familiar but I am not sure where from.
  2. Dave, I have checked on Tozer and listened to his sermon on God's sovereignty and man's freewill. He argues against the Calvinist and the so called 'reformed theology'. I see the comments from countless 'calvinists' who reject Tozer as an Armenian.

    In Tozer's writings he claims to be neither.

    Could you please show the evidence for warning that Tozer is a Calvinist? Please...don't destroy my book review with more about Calvinism but, either a PM to me or a separate thread.

    Thanks Dave (1Tim).

  3. I apologise for giving a warning.
  4. Easter is not associated with the Passover in fact. Check the dates of Easter as compared to the Passover - they can be as much as a month different. They are calculated differently. I am making no other statement than that Easter is not always during the feast of unleavened bread. Draw whatever conclusions you like from that, but it is fact.
  5. The first and last day of the feast of unleavened bread were Sabbath days, and the regular weekly Sabbath was also observed. Aside from those, there was nothing stopping the execution of Peter. The Passover itself wa not a Sabbath.
  6. Ok, I think I understand. I really was not trying to be difficult, it just seemed to me that your intent was unclear. A problem with my understanding or your explanation? Not sure which, but there was a disconnect between us.
  7. I am sorry, but this still isn't clear. What does you qualification "as what it actually is" mean exactly? Isn't the KJV "what it actually is"?
  8. Why should we believe anything that you say, considering you believe that Paul was a murderer after he was saved, and without repentance compare Paul to Calvin as a murderer. Aside from your constant rewriting of history to suit your own beliefs, which you have done constantly over the years you have been a member here, misrepresenting all sorts of baptist beliefs according to your own twisted views of both history and theology. And of course you keep saying you are not a Calvinist, but also keep promoting and defending Calvin seemingly at every opportunity. I think I hear quacking.......
  9. I am confused as to your motive for the various lines of argument. Are you following this line in preparation for an attack on the KJV? Can I ask you outright, because of my confusion, are you a supporter of the KJV or a detractor? I ask only because I am unsure of your point here or in other threads. Please don't take this as an aggressive question - it is not meant that way.
  10. No disagreement, but another aspect. You cannot force people to learn. In my adult Sunday school class I have been teaching a basic apologetics course, but first up not everyone comes.
  11. Just asking a simple question. I am afraid that your answer is so complex that I cannot tell if you believe it is an error or not. Simple question, any chance of a simple answer?
  12. I can't help it, I have to revisit this...... How absolutely disgraceful to compare the pre-salvation sins of Paul with the active leadership activities of Calvin. Yes, Paul was responsible for the killing of Christians, and he personally desired letters from the leaders of the Jews to give him authority to hunt down Christians wherever he found them. Act 9:1-5 (1) And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest, (2) And desired of him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem. (3) And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven: (4) And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? (5) And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. BUT THESE THINGS WERE BEFORE HE WAS SAVED!!!!!! Calvin on teh other hand was responsible, both directly in some cases, and indirectly in other cases, of causing the death of men whom he considered to be heretics. John Calvin argued: “Whoever shall now contend that it is unjust to put heretics and blasphemers to death, knowingly and willingly incur their guilt. It is not human authority that speaks, it is God who speaks and prescribes a perpetual rule for His Church.” That he was involved in such actions is hardly surprising considering the above statement. AND THESE THINGS WERE WHILST HE WAS A LEADER OF HIS NEW CHURCH. I hesitate to say after he was saved, because the only record I have of anything like a salvation testimony, is not a salvation testimony. But the biggest difference, and the thing that makes the statement of Invicta so reprehensible, is that Paul's actions were before he was saved, the action's of Calvin were while he was the leader of his church. To even think of comparing the two, one the actions of an unsaved man who then got saved, and the other the actions of a man who was leading a church, is the height of misrepresentation, and shows how far a man will go to lift up Calvin - even to the depths of discrediting and slandering an Apostle of God, so as to present a murderous false teacher in the best light he can. I say this is a foul and desperate action of a man who is committed to promoting a false teacher.
  13. You have said this several times, and yet you defend him, even to the point of slandering the Apostle Paul to do so, you support those who ARE calvinists when they come to attack on this site, you state things in the same terms as Calvinists, and you make statements that promote the Calvinist definitions of Bible terms. You keep saying you are not a Calvinist, but you sound a lot like one. And I don't know that I have ever met a Calvinist who didn't initially refuse to acknowledge his true position. But if you say you are not, then we are forced to accept it........... Can't help thinking...... if it swims like a duck, and waddles like a duck, and quacks like a duck...................

  15. Not twisting your words - anyone can read what you said and what I said, and I am comfortable with that. And I will point out that Paul did not murder anyone after he was saved, whilst Calvin murdered people WHILE HE LED HIS CHURCH AS POPE. Someone is deliberately misrepresenting here, and it is not me. To slander the Apostle Paul like that to defend a murderer and false teacher is an abominable thing.
