Ichabod explores the Age of Apostasy, predicted in 2 Thessalonians 2:3, with an emphasis on UOJ, Church Growth, and Emergent Church heresies. The antidote to these poisons is trusting the efficacious Word in the Means of Grace. John 16:8. Most readers are WELS, LCMS, ELS, or ELCA. This blog also covers the Roman Catholic Church, Eastern Orthodoxy, and the mainline denominations.
The Glory Has Departed
Lutheran book boxes sent to three African seminaries -
I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 1 Timothy 2:1-4
http://higherthings.org How could God send anyone to Hell? Pr. Borghardt answers that He doesn't. Christ died for everyone. Those in Hell have rejected that....
George BorghardtI'm sorry. I was putting the best construction on your stuff. There's folks in Eldona just like you who deny objective justification. You are probably friends with them.
In all seriousness, you seem like a person who loves theology. You got a lot of zeal. Learn to listen before you spend time misrepresenting what others teach. I can't be teaching universalism while saying rejecting Jesus lands us in hell. That's just an ignorant observation.
Gregory L. JacksonGeorge, according to you and your Halle Pietists, I am already forgiven and saved. It is not slander to rebuke false doctrine. You need to study Luther's Large Catechism, his Galatian's Commentary, and Romans 4. You studied Greek? Read it in Greek - logizo - counted righteous, not before or without faith. You will not own the Universalism you spout, so I will name you a crypto-Universalist. That is more precise.
George BorghardtNever said before or without faith, my friend. Faith saves cuz Jesus saves. Next response gets you blocked smile emoticon
Paul RydeckiI'm just glad you're helping the world to see what OJ really teaches (e.g., salvation apart from faith in Christ, that God doesn't send people to hell, etc.), and how eager you are to mock the Gospel of Christ and those who confess it. It's easier for the flock of Christ to identify the wolf when the sheep's clothing comes off.
George BorghardtThanks! Have a great day. My confession is just fine! smile emoticon. Enjoy your days guys! Have fun storming the castle!
