    I can't be upset about Blizzard banning of the Winnie the Pooh stereotypes, though. How is that not a blatant ethnic slur based on stereotypes of the happy fat Asian man? (And it's one I've seen...

    I heard a sermon not that long ago where the pastor argued that God works with people incrementally and doesn't seek to change everything at once. That there is room to grow. I think that fits with...

    So you're accepting this person's definition of antinomianism and using it in your own post about how you don't see it as a threat, to be clear?

    The way this person is using the term seems to be...

    Wouldn't it be better to lean in the legalist direction if you had to go one way or the other? If you look at Paul's letters, you get the distinct impression it's not as big a deal to lean in the...

    And Hillary's spokesman all but confirmed it was Tulsi when directly asked.

    That, and Tulsi Gabbard has been accused of being a Russian stooge for months.

    This isn't a new problem in Christianity at all. James and Paul both address it, and Pelagius got started on his infamous path by asking what was actually a perfectly reasonable question: Why do...

    I think historically speaking it refers to Old Testament laws, but in more modern usage, I hear it more in terms of what I said. But this is one of those terms that not everybody uses in the same...

    Antinomianism is the teaching that it does not matter how Christians behave or how many sins they commit; that as long as they accept the resurrection as a historical fact, they will go to heaven. I...

    Put it this way, if there aren't any works, there is good reason to think there is no salvation (with obvious exceptions like the thief on the cross).

    I didn't say anything about them being good presidents, to be clear. I just mean that they have ideas that at least deserve discussion.

    I've been a LeBron fan for all 16 years he's been in the league, but no longer. If I end up going to a Hornets game this year and it happens to be against the Lakers, I'm booing him.
