Rebekah replied to Lon R.'s discussion Predestination in the group Christian Men
"Is the "corn" example like the "compass" example you could have used, or do you actually think it was a bad translation?  "Corn" in 1611 England just meant "grain," not specifically the maize that North…"

"Michal, I guess first you would have to consider the structure of the original poetry, and then think of the structure of the audience your translation was aiming at. Lots of the Psalms and Proverbs are acrostics in hebrew to facilitate…"

"I've heard that KJV was made poetic on purpose. So I wonder if that doesn't degrade it's authenticity for the sake of being poetic. Note: I'm not trying to attack KJV, I'm just genuinely curious and would appreciate an…"

"I meant same as regular KJV, not the original books. I like the archaic words, too, but for the sake of the people here who don't and for ease of reading, I chose NKJV."

Michal the Slovak replied to Lon R.'s discussion Predestination in the group Christian Men
"Yes, that is also a very valid argument. As I have wrote in my first reply, there was a time in my life where I was very influenced by Calvinism and I still sympathize with it. But I can't say one is right, the other is wrong. Luckily, my…"

Stephen Jashub Comstock replied to Lon R.'s discussion Predestination in the group Christian Men
"As a confessional Presbyterian, I am a full Calvinist. The argument is too great for a paragraph answer, so I'll give a quick summation. Man is depraved and his will is bound (not free). God chose some for salvation to display his mercy, others…"

"Even nature itself shows us there is a God, and to whom much is given, much is required. Therefore, God has revealed Himself to every man in some measure or another. We choose whether we strive to follow Him, with whatever we know."

"I couldn't agree with you more, but. But still, the killer in the story was predestined to kill after all. I think it boils down to that we can't accept Jesus if he's not revealed to us (by God), and we also can't reject him,…"

"I think the emphasis is not on "whoever", but "whoever believes", meaning "those, and only those who believe", as I interpret it."

Paying off a large credit card debt vs. settlement? Are there pros? How bad are the cons?

I am going start with the disclaimer: Yes I realize the mistakes I have made to get to this point.As a results of a departure from a job and lifestyle I did not enjoy, and things "not going as well as forecasted" in my early 20s it appears I have accumulated a large debt on a credit card of mine.  The minimum payments are manageable, however don't really get me anywhere, too large of payments are over extending myself since I do have other financial obligations.These obligations are normal ones…See More
