An Answer to the Problem of Evil
Anglican Forum » Philosophy

he problem of evil is something I have struggled with for a very long time, as you may know. In fact, I might even go as far as to admit that it has served as a kind of road block to my growing in faith. Wherefore, I'm quite pleased that I seem to have found an answer. I remember reading a quote from some long-gone pope that although shedding one drop of Christ's would have been sufficient to save the human race, he suffered pain and death on the cross to demonstrate his love for us.

The Beast Revelation This letter is dedicated to all Christians. The following letter is a summary of Revelation 13. Its purpose is to show the method used in finding the conclusions which have been stated. Nothing new has been added from my previous letters. It is more of a compilation of them all. This writing is the same material in different words. The Bible uses this same method of explanation. There are four Gospels. In each you see a different view of the same material....

Where are you in the world did you get saved because you wanted or because you asked for it ? Can we be saved because Jesus wanted it or becuase you were destined tell you own testimony how you are saved ? Tell us how you were saved and what you wanted was by your will or by God's will. Because you can't be saved by your own efforts only by God's who put you in your life ..read more

Thoughts on mortal sin/venial sin
Anglican Forum » Philosophy
by Lowly Layman
3M ago
Hi all, What do you guys think about mortal vs. Venial sins? I guess I never gave it much credence. I thought sin was sin and that prior to baptism and lively faith, all sin was mortal, but afterward sin could not remove salvation unless it destroyed one's faith. But I must confess, when I read scripture, I'm not sure I was on the right track. Our Lord talked about the "weightier matters of the law", implying a hierarchy. We are told also that not every sin after baptism leads to death...but... Thoughts on mortal sin/venial sin ..read more

Excellent new book on Philosophy, Classical Theism, and Natural Theology
Anglican Forum » Philosophy
by Stalwart
3M ago
For some time in recent years, there's been a rejection of philosophy and classical theism, among those who considered themselves faithful orthodox Christians. Scott Oliphint, a major professor at Westminster Seminary, has been leading a massive crusade to reject classical theism among orthodox Christians. Now granted, his church has severely censured him, and the Seminary ordered him to retract his dangerous opinions. But his views are still out there, and classical theism (ie. the...

Immanuel Kant and the moral law
Anglican Forum » Philosophy
by Stalwart
3M ago
For those of you who are philosophically inclined, what do you think about Immanuel Kant as the guy who put the nail in the coffin of moral law, and natural law? The Western civilization has been on a downhill ever since. I think Kant may be the most evil philosopher in history, for what he has done. But what do you think? To me, this picture captures it all: View attachment 2156 ..read more

Anglicanism and SSA.

So this is a question that has most likely been asked a million times, but its one that's very personal to me. I'm greatly interested in Liturgical forms of Christianity; as I think they are among the most beautiful and fullest expressions of the Christian faith. I'm currently am not a Christian, but I am letting God guide me to a place where I can find some answers. However, a part of me feels as if there's a caveat to this. I'm gay/have same sex attractions. I'm also in a relationship... Anglicanism and SSA ..read more

Historic Anglican view of the Church & State
Anglican Forum » Philosophy
by Othniel
3M ago
I listened to a podcast not very long ago which posited that Jewel's view of church & state was much closer than we modern democratics tend to hold- namely, that he seemed to draw a Chalcedonian analogy of one people, 2 kingdoms- the civil government and the sacred government. Are there any recommended resource for this view, or other historically Anglican views on the same? (Primarily non-American preferred, but not opposed ..read more
