  1. US Law Prohibits Islamic Immigration to US

    We need to shut down ALL Muslim immigration to the US and outlaw Islam in the US if we want to preserve our nation.   If you want to be Muslim, go to a Muslim country.  The US has no use for Islam or those who follow it.
  2. God has not predetermined who will be saved, but he has predetermined how long man has to respond to the message.  It's like standing at the airport and trying to decide whether or not to book a particular flight.   If you wait to long, the decision will be made for you.    There is a fixed date when the doors of grace will close, not because God has run out of patience but because man has run out of time.
  3. It's not the only text I have.  It's the only text that is needed to make the point that Jesus return is fixed in the future.   You are simply not competent to properly exegete the passage and you are looking for any possible way to get around it, instead of believing it.   You should try actually believing the Bible instead of trying to weasel your way out of what it says. You're still wrong because you are don't understand the interplay between the humanity and deity of Jesus while he was operating in his earthly ministry.  It doesn't compromise Jesus' deity at all that He didn't know the fixed date of His return at that time.   That Jesus voluntarily operated under a limited prerogatives didn't mean that he was any less God.  It simply agrees with what Paul said in Phil. 2:5-11 There is not one translation you can use that will support your incompetent handling of Acts. 1: 6-7, including the translation you cite.   This is not as much a translation issue as it is an issue of your unwillingness to come to grips with the plain meaning of Scripture.
  4. Nonsense.  God doesn't "oops"  in the first place.   If God is every error, mankind is doomed.
  5. The Immigration and Nationality Act passed June 27, 1952 revised the laws relating to immigration, naturalization, and nationality for the United States. That act, which became Public Law 414, established both the law and the intent of Congress regarding the immigration of Aliens to the US and remains in effect today. Among the many issues it covers, one in particular, found in Chapter 2 Section 212, is the prohibition of entry to the US if the Alien belongs to an organization seeking to overthrow the government of the United States by “force, violence, or other unconstitutional means.” This, by its very definition, rules out Islamic immigration to the United States, but this law is being ignored by the White House.   The laws prohibits entry of “Aliens who the consular officer or the Attorney General knows or has reason to believe seek to enter the United States solely, principally, or incidentally to engage in activities which would be prejudicial to the public interest, or endanger the welfare, safety, or security of the United States.” It also prohibits the entry of Aliens who are members of or affiliated with any organization that advocates or teaches, the overthrow by force, violence, or other unconstitutional means of the US or of all forms of law, and Aliens who publish, circulate and distribute materials teaching or advocating the overthrow by force, violence or other unconstitutional means of the US Government or of all forms of law.   For the rest of the article>>>
  6. Warning From Germany

    Is that where I place my faith???   I don't really get that question.
  7. Warning From Germany

    Well, if they are trying sell these people as refugees, then why edit out the women and children???  Why edit out the elderly??   These are not refugees.  This is an invasion, not a refugee crisis.   And we here in the west are just naïve enough to believe that these people are fleeing Syria.  It is well known that they are coming from Turkey, Libya, Afghanistan, etc.  They are not Syrian refugees.
  8. Warning From Germany

    If you notice all of the media coverage, these refugees are not elderly and are mostly men who look to be between the ages of 18-40.  They have iPhones and nice clothes.   Very few of them are women and children.    And there are reports out of Europe, like Germany and Sweden and it is getting really nasty over there.  It's common in the news coverage.  I can't believe you haven't seen those reports. These refugees need to be kept out of the US.  They are more trouble than they're worth.
  9. And since God is all-knowing, he is never going to truly  regret keeping those promises.  The only reason he would truly regret something he has done is if it were a mistake.  
  10. You were saying something then that looks to be the opposite of what you're saying now.   So yes, it is YOUR theology that is a mess, not mine. 
  11. The daughter of Babylon

    If you knew my best friend's wife...
  12. God doesn't "see" into the future.  God is not bound by linear time, so he is not standing in the present and seeing into the future.  God is already in the future.   Rule #1: God doesn't make mistakes.  That is indisputable.  God is not capable of error.  That is theology 101.  Therefore, your take on Gen. 6:6 is wrong.  That means that your shallow, one dimensional view of the word, "repent"  is erroneous. If God is capable of making mistakes, then we cannot trust the Bible.  God is infallible and HIs word is infallible.   IF God is capable of error, then how do know that the Bible has no errors in it?   If it has errors, what kind of errors?   How would those errors possibly affect our eternal destiny??   Did God make a mistake about salvation?   If God makes mistakes then he is not worthy of our worship and 100% of our trust. From God's perspective the future does exist because God often refers to the future in the past tense.  You will see that all throughout the book of Revelation.   For God, the future is as established as the past. You know Oakwood, I have always appreciated and have been really inspired by your insights into current events and politics, as well as your support of Israel.   But your theology is a mess.   You have a lot to come to grips with when it comes to the essential attributes of God, particularly his omniscience.
  13. I am going off of the Greek, not the NJKV.   If you want to argue that NKJV is an inspired transalation, go for it.   But the ESV is as much a formal translation as the NKJV.  The New American Standard Bible, which is considered by scholars to be the most accurate of the modern translations agrees with the ESV  So when they had come together, they were asking Him, saying, “Lord, is it at this time You are restoring the kingdom to Israel?” 7 He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or epochs which the Father has fixed by His own authority; (Acts. 1:6-7, NASB) You are letting your theology drive your interpretation and you hang your hat on NKJV because it words it the way you need it worded to make your case, but the Greek simply doesn't support the notion that fixed is not a correct English word to put in that text.   The word in Greek, in this context, can be rendered, "fixed, placed, established, set, all of which are synonymous.   So really don't have a case to make.
  14. God can't make a mistake.  So God can't change his mind.   God doesn't ever make a miscalculation, or error, so there never any need on his part to change his mind.
  15. When I say that not every event in the future is fixed, I am saying that God does not micromanage everything we say, do and think.   God doesn't hasn't predetermined what you will have for breakfast.  I am not a hard determinist.   The book of Revelation shows us that the events God has spoken of are fixed events and God is sovereignly bringing the world to the end that he has planned for it. Acts. 1:6-7 clearly tell us that the events of the end times are fixed and one must commit intellectual suicide to say otherwise.    God always operates in the fullness of time.  Jesus, according to the NT was born in the fullness of time.   In fact, Jesus was born at the perfect time in history.   It didn't just happen.   God is sovereign over history and over the future.  If God has no fixed date for what he has planned, if it all just comes together and God is just a pleasantly surprised as we are, then he is not sovereign.   If God doesn't really know how things are going to go in the future, then he is not sovereign.   And none of us want a God who is not sovereign managing our salvation.
