Re: Rethinking the doctrine of hell

I had to look up Christus Victor, as I had never actually heard the term before, lol. I suppose you could say I am somewhat of an advocate for it but there also seems to be a Protestant version as well. It may be that the latter seems to de-emphasizes sin and our culpability in it. If you look up so...

Re: Metal music

I'm definitely more of a fan of Tarja, but some of the newer stuff is ok. I just liked Tarja's voice better and I thought it made their style better as a whole. edit: I forgot to mention that part of the reason is that Passion and the Opera, She is My Sin, The Kinslayer, Sleepwalker, and their rendi...

Re: Rethinking the doctrine of hell

Hello Brandon, Hey RoosterOnAStick, I once held a view similar to yours, although my rationale was not God’s love. I've had long discussions with people who emphasize God's love but conclude that hell will eventually be empty, that universalism is true. I see where your coming from, but I should men...

Re: Metal music

Oh man, early Dethklok and Metalocalypse is so good. . Yeah man, I loved the first and second albums, even if the second one was a bit more serious. The third album I didn't like because it just didn't feel like Dethklok. Did you ever listen to Epica's Classical Conspiracy album? Honestly I just go...

Re: Rethinking the doctrine of hell

Interesting discussion, I have a somewhat different take on the matter. I don't view Hell as God throwing us to fiery demons as part of His righteous wrath so to speak. I am also not an annihilationist either. I'll start with the latter first. Consider for a moment that Satan and his demons try to u...

Re: Metal music

I'm definitely a metalhead to a certain degree too. It can be hard to find good metal that isn't explicitly anti-Christian but it is out there. I used to be into the Christian Metalcore scene but no so much anymore. I stick with melodic, power, or symphonic metal for the most part. My favorite bands...

Pathfinder

Wondering who else here has had the chance to play it and wanted to discuss what you guys think. Personally I'm DMing a campaign in this system when I can (hasn't happened much as of late lol). I found it has definitely fixed a lot of things from D&D 3.5. Classes and races are the biggest improvemen...

Re: Super Smash bros.

I liked Melee the best, but I admit it had too many clones. After that I liked the original. Brawl was good too but it felt like it was missing something.

Re: Recommend a Board Game

Hmm, over the past few years I've had some number of interesting board games. First off, +1 for Pandemic, especially if you have the expansion for it (On the Brink). My personal favorite has been Fury of Dracula. Sadly the game is out of print but you should be able to find it on eBay. It is basical...

Re: Calvinism: Is it biblical?

Hello, Something I often think is missed when discussing Calvinism is the concept of time as we understand it. We are beings inside of time, bound by it and experience it as more or less a sequence of events. God is not bound by such things, He sees all things simultaneously as they are. Often when ...

Dark Souls 2 anyone?

Just wondering if anyone else has had the chance to play it yet. The series as a whole has been one of my favorites. I got the game on PS3 when it first came out. :-)
