Scriptural Determinism

A set of scripture passages that I personally see as clearly affirming a view often referred to as Divine Determinism. Specifically, God alone is the only uncaused-first-cause, or ultimate cause, of everything that happens.

Resolving the Münchhausen Trilemma

Standard epistemology paradigms are often criticized for not delivering on ultimate justification for claims. However, humans all recognize a simple mechanism that really does ultimately justify claims. Why then does the Münchhausen trilemma get any traction? Simple: successful epistemology requires submission to God.

The Book of Hebrews and the Real Presence

Based on the Book of Hebrews, this is a challenge for Roman Catholics, Eastern Orthodox, and anyone else who holds to the ideas that the bread and wine, during the Christian communion becomes Christ's flesh and blood literally; becomes God, and is to be worshipped;and is to be re-offered in sacrifice to atone for sins.

Does God make us sin?

If God made everything, does He make us sin? Recognized as one of the most critical aspects of the philosophical question known as “the problem of evil”, responses to this question from Christians have been both incredibly diverse and strenuously adamant. And often, horrifically contradictory...

If God knows the future, do I have a choice?

There are many who insist that a choice, a true choice, cannot be foreknown. The outcome cannot be predetermined, or it isn’t really a choice. They recognize that if the outcome is predetermined, then the one who chooses could never have chosen otherwise...

"What's an easy way to show that Mormonism is false?"

An extraordinarily important, core aspect of the Mormon faith is the concept of "free agency." Jesus Christ exercised free agency, Satan exercised it, and we also exercise it. Their "free agency" seems to be identical to what others refer to as "libertarian free will." Unlike many other Christian groups, Mormons correctly realize that their concept of "free agency" cannot be correct if we, and everything around us, were actually entirely created by God.

"Re: your answer to my question "Should homosexuals be executed?". There is a clear conflict with Matt 7:1 and Rom 12:19. Discuss."

Matthew 7:1-5 "Do not judge so that you will not be judged. For in the way you judge, you will be judged; and by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you. Why do you look at the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?

I'm not convinced that God does do this, because I'm not convinced that these things happen as described. I haven't seen any evidence for it. Granted, this website does not allow for very lengthy questions that could include evidence, but regardless, my point is that I see absolutely no reason to accept the question as asked.
