Church Fathers & Becoming gods:What is your thought on what a Mormon told me, saying that even the Church Fathers said that we can become as gods like the Mormons believe, "as God is man can become, as man is God once was"? (THIS CALL IS CARRIED ON PAST THE BREAK EVEN THOUGH IT SEEMS LIKE STEVE ENDED IT IN THE FIRST HALF.)
3rd & 4th Generation or Not the Father's or Son's Sins, but their own:There seems to be a contradiction because in Ezekiel 18 that each person is responsible for their own sin, not the father or the son, but in the 10 commandments it says that sins of the fathers would be passed down 3 or 4 generations. How do you harmonize these? [Ezekiel 18, Exodus 20]
Choosing to put the Blood on the Door:The 10th plague & the Passover are good examples of salvation, being covered by the Blood, but it's also a good example of freewill, isn't it? God does the saving, but they were choosing to put the blood on the door. Isn't it a good example of defending against Calvinism?
Not Willing that any should perish:Not willing that anyone perish, God is 'being patient waiting for us' to evangelize the world, what does Steve say about that in contrast to how John MacArthur would answer it? [2 Peter 3:9]
Babylon & the Tribes of Dan, Judah & Benjamin:When you read about the 144,000 in Revelation 7, & all the tribes are mentioned except for the Tribe of Dan, but when the 10 tribes of Israel were taken by Assyria & Judah & Benjamin by Babylon, & the 2 tribes from Babylon returned, but what about the other 10?
The Book of Revelation Prophecy:If Revelation was written just before 70 AD, only a few years before the roman ambush of 70 AD, how could that be enough time to get the prophecy out to 7 churches or Jerusalem?
Forgiveness but then giving up on them:Jesus said to forgive 490 times a day, but God seemed to give up on people & quit forgiving them, turning them over to a reprobate mind, according to Romans 1? [Romans 1]
Investigative Judgment:When debating Doug Batchelor, ask about the false doctrine of the investigative judgment, because if they were so wrong about that, how can they not be wrong about everything else, including keeping the Sabbath?
The Heart:It says in Jeremiah that "the heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?", so do Christians have a deceitful & wicked heart, & what's the difference between the heart & the flesh, if there is a difference?
Pagan Holidays:God was getting really upset w/ a king for doing this idolatry stuff yet claiming to be following God, so how is that different than us celebrating pagan days such as Christmas & Easter?
