Thursday, January 12, 2017 7:04 PM Genesis 1 & 2. What do we have a right to deduce? by usher


I've recently had the privilege of a private email exchange with Joseph Nally, one of your own at IIIMill. He directed me here, as he hadn't time to continue the exchange.

One thing he said was (my emphasis):

Quote:
Though it is not recorded that God said anything like, "Adam, I command you to name these animal" this does not mean He didnít! Genesis 1-2 is not a complete record. It is historical and it is accurate, but it is not complete (does not recount every conversation between God and Adam, or every aspect of creation). In addition, Adam could have been just following the example of God himself in naming each of the days. Or he could have been told to name items, as in those days naming something meant your power over that which was named, which Adam was given by God (Gen 1:26). We simply do not know.


I'm wondering what 3Mill teaches about God and Adam actually conversing. Nally here seems to be saying that they did, indeed, converse. But the accounts (Gen 1 and 2) do not say they conversed. On what grounds should we assume they did?

Thanks.

Thursday, January 12, 2017 12:11 PM JI Packer Question by Tom

My pastor was telling me how years ago he took a course under JI Packer and for the most part he really liked the course. However, my pastor said that one conversation he had with Dr. Packer left him scratching his head.
Packer asked him if he was Reformed and when he said yes. He asked him another question. "Are you confessional?" My pastor also said yes to this.
Dr. Packer then said: (with a little bit of a frown on his face) "I could never be confessional."
Like my pastor, I am not sure why he would say something like that.
Anyone have any ideas as to why?

Why is it that many want to claim to be Reformed and even acknowledge that they proudly hold to being a 4 point Calvinist,.. my question stems with this declaration, what is Amyraldism, and how wrong is this theology?

Friday, January 6, 2017 1:20 PM Is Love a Feeling? by Tom

I was recently involved in a Reformed blog where the question was asked "Is Love a Feeling?
I said to the person that love is not a feeling, because if love was a feeling, one could fall in and out of love, based on how they feel in the moment. I went on to state that love certainly creates feelings, but it is not a feeling in itself.
Other replies , were in agreement with this, except for one person who said he was surprised that so many who are Reformed would give an answer like that. For Reformed people have always affirmed that love was indeed a feeling. He said anyone who has read history would know this. For example Jonathon Edwards, was very clear about "religious affections", that love was a feeling that was pure, unlike the feelings that change like the emotions of sinful man.
What are your thoughts on the matter?

Tom
