My understanding is the same as yours. Yet, I do not have a problem with the term itself if it is qualified. It was pretty shocking to see just how much animosity there is even among Calvinists on the issue. It is lucky I wasn't a new believer who happened upon the issue. Sigh......

Yeh, the debate over 'theotokos' is ageless. It has been mentioned here on the board, even back 16 years ago. I tend to reject the language/phraseology of "mother of God" since it can easily be understood that Mary gave birth to God Himself, i.e., God didn't exist befo...

Theotokos: “God bearer” or sometimes “Mother of God” Recently I came upon quite a heated debate among Calvinists on the term theotokos. Some on both sides declared each other to be heretics. My understand is that when the term was originally used, all it really was saying is tha...

1. I don't know where you got "hyper covenant theology" from? 2. In the article linked, there is a statement in the very beginning which states: "Most Christian views on the Old Covenant hold that the Old Testament has been superseded or abrogated and replaced wi...

We are not our own; therefore let us forget ourselves as much as possible, and all that is about us. We belong to the Lord; let us live and die to Him; let His will and wisdom preside in all our actions; let all the parts of our life be referred to Him as their unique goal. ~ Jo...

Pride feeds off nearly anything: a fair measure of ability and wisdom, a single compliment, season of remarkable prosperity, a call to serve God in a position of prestige, even the honor of suffering for the truth! Puritan Richard Mayo said of pride: 'It is hard to starve this s...

1. This view which you have described, albeit briefly, smacks of a "hyper-Dispensationalist" view. I was exposed to this radical view about 40 years ago by an acquaintance who was studying at a school in Grand Rapids which taught this. He insisted that the majority of t...

Jonathan Edwards must be placed among the praying saints—one whom God mightily used through the instrumentality of prayer. As in the instance of the great New Englander, purity of heart should be ingrained in the very foundation areas of every man who is a true leader of his fell...

I had a brief conversation the other day with an evangelical Christian with some disturbing (to me) beliefs. I am looking for some sound apologetics to counter-address what I believe is distortion of sound Christian faith. In a nutshell, he stated that Jesus came for the Jews on...

Hi all, While having a discussion with my Dispensational friend about JtB, I mentioned that the last prophecy in the OT concerned him. He disagreed and said that Malachi 3 concerns JtB but not chapter 4. The best I can tell from my sources is that the first couple of verses in c...

Pilgrim, you do have a great point about whether or not heretics like Enns is even worth dealing with. Unfortunately, he has had influence on a lot of people. I certainly wouldn't want to become guilty of making people aware of him; so they would think there is merit in what he i...

Heretics like Peter Enns are in many ways similar to the modern "Main Street Media", those infamous purveyors of Fake News......no, VERY Fake News. They both are looking for that "something new" which would bring them notoriety, first and foremost (cf. Acts 17...

I found the information from the person who talked about Paul being mistaken that I mentioned in my opening post. Unfortunately, I was mistaken concerning one thing. It had to do with a literal Adam and Eve. Dr. Peter Enns, stated that Paul believed in a literal Adam and Eve; but...
