With Donald Trump in the Oval Office, one might expect me to be dancing on the graves of our vanquished foes, but I am not gloating. Yes, it took me days to stop basking in the afterglow of unexpected rescue, but it has taken me weeks to reluctantly conclude that the Democratic Party, its leaders, and many of its followers are worse than deranged. They are evil. Since the election, Trump Derangement Syndrome has been exhibited in serial episodes of recounts, electoral college chicanery, and now a wall of obstruction at every turn by the Democratic Party in Congress — not to mention violent protest.
Had the election been decided differently, however, would it not be we or at least I who would have sought every conceivable remedy to reverse or mitigate the disaster? Would I not be suffering from Hillary Derangement Syndrome? The answer is There is no moral equivalency here. Start a Wiki. The Demons of Sin , generally regarded as simply Demons and more formally known as the Demons of Deadly Sin , [note 1] were supernatural entities inhabiting the vessels of sin.
Derived from six of the surviving earthlings from the Second Period , each of the demons, coded after a deadly sin, began wreaking havoc upon humanity over the centuries. Contents [ show ]. Categories :. The fact that God made these promises of forgiveness demonstrates that He knew long before it ever happened that His Son would not fail in His mission.
Otherwise, we imply that God could not forgive sins until He knew for certain that His Son would succeed in His mission as our Redeemer. Imagine: God waiting to see if His Son would fail! On the contrary, God's promises are fulfilled in the historical event of the cross, but the cross is founded upon the infallible work of God Himself. Because of this, He also knew that He could pronounce absolute forgiveness to those who called upon His name centuries before this ever happened.
We cannot have it both ways. We cannot say, "God forgave them" and at the same time "God rolled their sins forward. Furthermore, the "rolling forward" concept leads to serious implications: If Israelites died in their sins since their sins were "rolled forward" and not truly forgiven on the spot , what was the disposition of their souls until the time of Christ?
Were they in torment—but after the cross, they were led into glory? Were they in some spiritual limbo until Christ's blood was shed? Could God bring them into Paradise without having truly forgiven them—and if so, how does this impact our understanding of divine forgiveness and "no partiality"?
In any case, we end up hammering a round peg into a square hole: it just does not work. The "rolled forward" concept makes unwarranted leaps in our teaching on God, His infallibility, and forgiveness. Leave a comment. You are commenting using your WordPress.
