The Glory Has Departed

LPC has left a new comment on your post "Intrepid Rydecki Back to Justification by Faith, W...":
Indeed that is a very very good question!!! It is NOT confusing and it is NOT a bad question. Goodness what an opportunity.
Rev. Paul R is in a corner so rather than answering the question he changes it. He is skipping the question.
Of course, forgiveness is not distributed without the means of grace.
So then forgiveness therefore is not distributed without repentance for it is the means of grace that creates repentance and faith. What is so hard in answering that question?
What is happening to him is like the Federal Visionaries of Calvinism. This group comes very close to the Lutheran view of the Supper but could not quite make it to the finish line and land on the Lutheran side. Why? Their ankles are chained to Calvin's separation of the Supper from the Holy Spirit. The influence is just too great because that would mean they are no longer Calvinists.
IMHO, this is similar to what is happening here. Rev. R. does not like to answer, because his ankles are tied to the poles of UOJ.
GJ - On Sunday, Dr. Cruz garnered 500 page-reads on a single post here. Anyone who can beat the squirrel post is a winner.
Joe Krohn has also pushed back the squirrels in popularity.
