  • Re: What is Behemoth??

    [quote user="MJ. Smith"] "Obviously" is a marker for an underlying assumption that one considers to be self-evident. It is that underlying assumption I am trying to grasp. Since I do not understand where "spiritual language" falls on the "literal language - figurative language" spectrum, I don't have a clue as to what you are trying to say. To guess

  • Re: What is Behemoth??

    [quote user="Matthew C Jones"] I guess what really surprises me is how I seem to agree with Erasmus more than most orthodox people on the forums. Now Erasmus and Luther both knew they were in the right. At least one of them had to be wrong. Then there is Behemoth, 6 day creation, Wikipedia's "List of logicians" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_logicians

    [quote user="MJ. Smith"]I agree wholeheartedly. The image that I like is that we can see truth through a window - reason can narrow the window frame i.e. can eliminate more that is untrue.[/quote] I like the images you come up with a lot. Sooner or later I'm going to wind up stealing them and using them as illistrations for my own arguments. Yours in

    [quote user="MJ. Smith"]Again I don't believe it is your intent, this sounds suspiciously like man-became-God rather than God-became-man (the incarnation).[/quote] Now this I like. This is precisely the view I hear professed from modernist pulpits. I like to think of it as "new-age gnosticism". That is, gnosticism with a twist. We're given an opposite

    [quote user="Jules lamond"] Now this sensitivity is in-line with scripture. You hit the nail on the head instead of dancing around it. See my previous post. [/quote] Hi Jules. I think you should get in the habit of quoting the bits of other people's posts that you're responding to. Of course this is for my benefit (and others I suppose) but I'm interested

    [quote user="Charles Nason"]Logic is grounded in the character of God.[/quote] How do you know that? Logic is a created thing. God precedes logic. I can't say that what you say is false because nothing has been revealed to me, either in scripture or in natural evidence to say it is false. However, neither can you say it's true for the same reason. We

    [quote user="MJ.

    [quote user="Matthew C Jones"] [quote user="John McComb"] "God's revelation is not contrary to human reason but rather is beyond human reason". I would only amend that sentence to read, "beyond perfect human reason", meaning a more or less imaginary, flawless human argument that exhausts all physical and metaphysical possibilities.

    [quote user="MJ. Smith"] You realize, I assume, that the Buddhist logicians would disagree strongly with this very Western view. [/quote] No, but I don't care either. I don't see my view as being "Western", only scientific. Mathematics and metaphysics are not disciplines that can be influenced by cultural woolgathering. Or perhaps I should put it another

  • Re: 1st John and it's apparent contradictions

    [quote user="MJ. Smith"] The fallacy I was refering to was "appeal to authority". Obviously, this is something that we intentionally do without fallicious intent in Scripture study. As one who believes that God's revelation is not contrary to human reason but rather is beyond human reason I am quite willing to apply logics (plural) to scripture and

    [quote user="Calvin Habig"] This is a question for those who do HTML code in the preparation of Libronix PBBs.
