    Too be fair, objective conversation rarely seems to be the goal in the majority of Civics thread discussions, no matter who they're started by.

    Jim, there was likely a better way to reply than this. I think we all need to keep in mind passages like Matthew 5:22 that warn against this sort of dialog against our fellow brothers and sisters in...

    I've made this point before, but many many years ago I was part of a cult, and one of the cult's main talking points for proving that IT was the truth and that Christianity was a lie was that there...

    The Neoplatonic and then later Christian idea of God as "the good" is based on Plato's metaphysical concept of Forms. If you're not familiar with Platonic Forms, that might be where the confusion...

    It's typically argued by Christian philosophers that there is interpersonal play within the Christian conception of the eternal God, namely between the persons of the Godhead within the trinity.

    It sounds to me that you're entirely confused on what it means for God's nature to be identified with "the good." While your nature may do good and bad, it is not "the good," and "the bad." I suggest...

    But is not subjective to him, it is him. He is the good. You don't talk about any of God's other essential attributes as being subjective to him, do you? It seems to me that it's just unnecessary...

    Well, I think you'll get no argument that the Church will prevail from Christ's point of view. I don't take much stock in pre/post/ or amillennial views. What will happen will happen, regardless of...

    So, essentially you're a post-tribulation, perhaps even a post-millennial Catholic. Not unheard of, I suppose, but I imagine not common.

    To be clear, my view is that it would neither be subjective or objective (from God's point of view). If subjective, then God takes the horn of Euthyphro's dilemma that suggests that he wills the...

    Yes, I know that that the common dating is 4 B.C. As I pointed out previously, some scholars suggest a 1 B.C dating instead. Would you like me to send those to you via PM?
