    As you might gather from my sig, I don't consider it much of a threat at all.

    IMO, the two "gutters" are antinomianism and legalism. In practical terms, it is impossible to navigate a path...

    Great movie.

    I recall the one doctor (the non-expert) Charlie consulted did refer to Raymond as "high-functioning," and that really did not seem accurate.

    Raymond was specifically "autistic...

    So perhaps we should add up all the "we must do works to obtain salvation" passages, and all the "faith alone is sufficient to obtain salvation" passages, pick the winner, and white out the losers.

    That's not a small point, and I don't understand why conservatives often go to the "leave it to the States" position. The only reason to want to stop abortion is the belief that it is the...

    That could be because some passages do read that way.

    John 6, for example, reads as if the only "work" one need do to obtain "eternal life" is to "believe in the one He sent."

    We tend to interpret the passage through v. 18, which shows that "works" are the necessary evidence of "faith." And the overall context shows that the kind of "works" that are in view are generally...

    I've been thinking for quite a while -- like, decades -- that one of the worst things churches ever did was accept tax-exempt status. Whatever the original intent, it has long since turned into a...

    Only if they turn into liberals or atheists.

    (I chose to prefer Prov. 26:5 over 26:4.)

    I wonder whether that has usually been the case, and we're only now becoming aware of it.

    If you *would* pass judgment on NON-blacks, aren't you behaving in a racist manner?

    ISTM we need to question the Constitutionality of protections for even "real" whistleblowers. Trump was right: He has -- or at least *should* have -- the right to confront his accuser(s).
