  1. So I just came across an advertisement for "Dress Pant Sweatpants"... Why... just why?

  2. I just updated my status which hasn't been updated in forever but I couldn't think of anything witty to say.

      It doesn't have to be anything witty. You could give us updates about anything that you want to say or share with us. :)

  3. To Quote the hymn Amazing Grace, "the Lord has promised good to me, His Word my hope secures"; or to put it in a rather blunt way... A Christian who does not read the Bible ( or pray much as well), is like the man who decides to go without food or water. If you think I'm being overzealous, the testimony of Scripture will tell you the same ( Psalm 1 for example), as well as experience of myself and others. And if that leaves you unconvinced, my Grandfather is on his death bed, and one of the main things that has kept me going through the vigils and utter turmoil; is the testimony of Scripture

  5. @@Steel Accord, Thank you very much for clarifying your position on that. I remember you mentioning in a post somewhere at some point that you identified yourself as... I think it was 'Gnostic Catholic' if I remember correctly. Which from a historical perspective don't really go together. So if I was remembering that right. I'm assuming you are using the term 'Gnostic' in different way than is typically used? (Otherwise you would have given Spoon and I very different answers.)
  6. @@Steel Accord, No problem, I have to be rather thick skinned being online and all . But I was curious, because you said Jesus was "part of the Divine". Am I to take this as meaning you do not believe Jesus was fully God? As the Trinitarian view would hold? Or am I misunderstanding your position?
  7. @@Steel Accord, You make me sound like I'm grading a paper. I do give you credit for talking about Christ's humanity ( I would disagree on the 'why' Jesus was afraid; e.g. the crucifixion in and of itself would be nothing compared to a just God's wrath upon Sin after all). But I'm simply asking for a clarification on your position. If someone were to ask me a detailed view of my position on such matters, I would readily provide a link to a statement of Faith or Confession (in my case the London Baptist Confession of 1689 to be precise). If we were discussing educational policies, would it be w
  8. I see, thank you but... Would you mind elaborating upon this statement please? Although, I suppose for the sake of clarity, it might be better for me to ask, "who or what is God, in your position?"
  9. @@Steel Accord, If you don't mind me asking, you take different stances on things than I normally encounter ( but you've described yourself as 'Unorthodox' so maybe you'll forgive my curiosity); but what is your stance on Christ's becoming human while maintaining his deity ( the whole 100% God 100% Man topic of the Incarnation) and for what reason he died precisely in your view?
  10. I like leaving things to those far wiser than myself; so I will leave the Westminster Shorter Catechism here with Scripture proofs and then some words from the Danish Gadfly: "Man's chief end is to glorify God (1 Cor. 10:31), and to enjoy him for ever (Ps. 73:25-26)." “The matter is quite simple. The bible is very easy to understand. But we Christians are a bunch of scheming swindlers. We pretend to be unable to understand it because we know very well that the minute we understand, we are obliged to act accordingly. Take any words in the New Testament and forget everything except pledg
  11. Well, my initial thinking would be that Christians are to be a comfort to those who mourn or are suffering, as much as one is able. And upon do a quick search of Holy Scripture, God says through the pen of the Apostle Paul: 3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. 5 For as we share abundantly in Christ's sufferings, so through Christ we share abundantly in com
  12. Was a legitimate question in my view, and someone would have likely made the observation eventually. Best have it brought up and discussed in passing sooner than later.
  13. To be blunt, if the all caps thread is somehow out of anger because of this thread. That says two things: 1. An insecurity in one's own beliefs. 2. They should avoid the Internet in general. Personally, I probably disagree with 90% of the positions people have on this site alone, but like an adult I accept that fact, and move on. If one can't dialogue with people who will fundamentaly disagree with your belief system because they hurt your feelings by simply having certain views (if someone was being uncivil that's another matter), the public forum in general is not for you. If people can'

      Just the people who got the cheap seats like myself. If I had known that would equate be cheap in spirit as well, I would have tried to get better tickets. Next time around I'll do my best to get near the front to be with the die hard fans. On another note I learned I can instantly get a crush on a woman, if she knows how to play an awesome solo ( One of the guitarists in the band is female and an amazing guitarist).

  15. My Lutheran friends here will likely appreciate my taste here... My pick is "A Mighty Fortress is Our God".
  16. @, Myself ( and many others here on the forums I'm sure) will be in prayer during your time of trouble. Our hope is in God, especially when we feel utterly lost and our eyes are filled with tears.
  17. @, For times as this when we are deeply suffering, God made the Lament Psalms: Psalm 42 1 As the deer pants for the water brooks, So my soul pants for You, O God. 2 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God; When shall I come and appear before God? 3 My tears have been my food day and night, While they say to me all day long, “Where is your God?” 4 These things I remember and I pour out my soul within me. For I used to go along with the throng and lead them in procession to th

      Heh welcome. :)

      Hehe maybe. There are probably several reformed geeks out there in some way or another who may get me. :)

      Yeah probably will. :) well I guess I'll go ahead and like it then.

      That was my first exposure actually..... I think I went into a comma for a few minutes.

  21. They are Punkish as with the bands that are called 'Punk' bands today, and there first album could be described as such; but Punk 'Proper', really only existed in from 1977-1980 roughly. This is because it was a reaction against the excesses of 70's stadium rock, in much the same way Grunge was a reaction to the excesses of 80's hair metal ( I can count on my fingers the 80's bands I like; so thank Heaven for Grunge bands). Both are also quite Nihilistic in outlook. Punk in terms of musical style... the album title "Never Mind the Bollocks", is an apt description; songs should generally be no
