    Murder

    Everyone that conspires together to take the life of the innocent. Don't care if it is the husband, woman, or doctor. Enemies of God seek death but we seek to suffer life in Jesus Christ.
  2. Please let me introduce my brother in Christ, @FalconMan, we enjoy taking both political and theological liberals Snipe hunting. If you're a political or theological liberal feel free to contact either FalconMan or I through PM. We'll set you up for a tour of Big Sky Country in search of the Snipe. The Snipe is a majestic creature 'round here parts' with an innate sense of righteousness which has a tendency to allude everyone to this day.
  3. Cheers, "here's to all those that place too much emphasis on how we say things rather than what we say".

    Murder

    The arguments are derived from following principles of interpretation that entails both a negative explicit and positive implicit of a command. For example, the 6th commandment is that "you shall not murder". That's the negative explicit. The positive implicit would be "you shall preserve life". The principle must not result in either contradicting one another. That is, the implicit may never contradict an explicit command.

    Murder

    I wholeheartedly agree. I'm reminded of two principles found in Just War Theory. The two principles which come to mind are to do with Last Resort and Proportionality. In summation, force may be only authorized as as a last resort when peaceful means are exhausted and then the force exhibited must be proportional to the attack.
  6. There's only one Trinitarian baptism. One baptism with multiple aspects of which the timing of each salvific role performed by three Persons does not necessarily take place simultaneously at the moment water is administered. Ephesians 4:1-7 I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, 2 with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, 3 eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 4 There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call— 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. 7 But grace was given to each one of us according to the measure of Christ's gift. There is no need to baptize more than once for the physical aspect (outward) and then for the spiritual aspect (inward). There's no need to baptize for the covenant sign and seal or initiation into the body of Christ, another for regeneration, and yet again for the remission of sins, etc.

    Murder

    The duty of the civil magistrate is to actively seek out evil and combat it. While the civil magistrate may demonstrate mercy it is not their place to demonstrate grace [forgiveness]. Personally, I don't want my government acting as priest and mediator between man and God. I expect the civil magistrate to be a stumbling block to the unrighteous and simultaneously transparent to the righteous [law abiding]. I expect the civil magistrate to punish the criminals for their crimes. Earthly crimes as a result of sin have earthly consequences.
  8. Were they rebaptized? Was the re-administration of water used? Were they rebaptized in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit? Anabaptist, if it possible for yous to answer the questions above honestly yous haven't any ground to stand on for rebaptizing covenant children.

    Murder

    Do we have a duty to protect the life of the innocent [earthly crime]? If so, standing out in front of a murder factory with a sign is the very least that can be done. Earthly sin and/or crime [murder] has earthly consequences. Murder should be condemned. Salvation aside people are getting away with murder.

    Murder

    Is the unbelief you once held before your regeneration and conversion forgiven? Even unbelief is forgivable. God's grace at times of recognition is just so overwhelming.
  11. Linksys Night Hawk series have VPN. As well as the above posted recommendation for Bitdefender software. If a malware has infected a computer within the network and tries to establish a connection to the outside Bitdefender will shut down the connection and notify the admin by way of mobile device. Routers have come a long ways.
  12. So the day the saints come into communion in remembrance of Jesus Christ's death as well as the day of His Resurrection has no blessing?
  13. Made easy today. Lots of Routers have VPN capability. No need to configure a dedicated VPN or purchase VPN services.
  14. Has anyone ever tried Spybot Search and Destroy: Home - Spybot Anti-Malware and Antivirus WWW.SAFER-NETWORKING.ORG Spybot offers a unique technology for your security. Far beyond antivirus Spybot searches and destroys unwanted software and protects your privacy.
  15. I'd reinstitute animal sacrifices.
  16. I'll accept a service dog but I think culture has gotten out of hand with pets and "emotional support" animals.
  17. Hi Mike, Glad to hear things are coming along and you are doing pretty good. Go to your profile: https://www.christforums.com/profile/886-just-mike/ And then upper right in a light grey button you'll see "edit profile". Here's a screen shot with the button circled in red:
  18. In terms of salvation I do not think the cross should be separated from the resurrection. However, to answer your question I believe death was conquered at the cross/resurrection. At that time both OT saints [forward looking faith] and NT saints [historical looking faith] intersected in faith believing the promises of God.
  19. In an attempt to make the profile pages more personal they've been revamped. To edit your profile information please visit your profile page and edit your profile. Basic questions and fields to answer them in will display:
  20. Not at all. I'll argue that only Elect infants are heaven bound. Without unconditional election no infant nor adult is heaven bound. Problem is, we do not know which adults as well as infants are elect. I do not believe the Elect can lose their salvation. Therefore, elect infants will remain in the faith or come back to it should they demonstrate a prodigal moment. If credo-baptism [profession of faith] guaranteed only the Elect were baptized then no adults which are baptized should ever depart from the faith. However, that's not the case as evidenced by so many adults which have departed the faith. Therefore, such attempts are futile. Besides, if we knew we would not only select which infants but also adults. It is the duty of Christ Jesus to divide the sheep from the goats and the wheat from the tares. And as we are to preach the gospel to every tribe, tongue, and nation without distinction... . as heads of households we are not to distinguish between Elect and non-Elect infants. We are to administer the sacrament to our children without distinction. We are heads of households and that is our responsibility as the name and title of "head of household" implies. In a covenant household [Reformed] we raise our children in the moment conveying God's grace to them now and the blessings to them now as members of the covenant now under the sovereignty of God now. That is, in contrast to one day in the future when emphasis is placed upon themselves to perform a work or act of faith. Again, Baptist seemingly don't acknowledge that Covenant baptist acknowledge Credo-Baptism for adults capable of making a profession of faith. There is no question as to whether adults are to believe and be baptized. The question and contention is whether the sign and seal of baptism ought be administered to children of the household. With restraint, I'll refrain from repeating that the house of Israel which was in a covenant relationship is addressed in Acts 2. Nowhere were children abrogated, but instead Peter used an allusion to the OT a familiar covenant language to them in that the seal of the covenant [promise] was being given to not only heads but their children and those far off. Nowhere in Scripture are children abrogated from the Covenant. NT makes strong use of imagery of the smallest faith of children yet today Baptist replace that with adult like faith. Christ Jesus can overcome even the weakest faith of a child. A child that grows up believing that they are indeed children of God rather than one day after when. Lastly, elect infants will grow up and remain in the covenant and demonstrate saving faith. To those others which depart both Hebrews 6 and the Epistles of John address that they were temporarily illuminated, tasting the goodness, but not one of us. That pertains to not only non elect infants in the covenant church but as well as the Baptist church with only adult membership.
