A Chronology of the Resurrection Appearances - Community in Mission. When we encounter the resurrection accounts in the New Testament, we face a challenge in putting all the pieces together in such a way that the sequence of events flows in logical order.

A Chronology of the Resurrection Appearances - Community in Mission

St Cyril’s Third Letter to Nestorius « Orthodox Unity (Orthodox Joint Commission)

Whereas our Saviour saith in plain terms, He that loveth father or mother above Me is not worthy of Me, and he that loveth son or daughter above Me is not worthy of Me [Matthew 10:37]: what shall be our lot, from whom thy piety claims to be loved in higher degree than Christ the Saviour of us all?

Grados de oracion, Fray Juan Gonzalez Arintero OP. Against double predestination. October 15, 2018 at 11:10 am (Uncategorized) STA can be read as defining predestination as divine providence in human life, helping it to attain its last end, namely beatitude, that it cannot achieve without help.

Against double predestination

So defined, there can be no double predestination for two decisive reasons: 1.) Hell is not an end simpliciter.2.) Hell is the last end in some way only so far as we see it as a final end we can attain entirely by ourselves. Double predestination makes the mistake of assuming we need just as much help to go to Hell as to Heaven, and so God has to pitch us in one bin or another. SixDay Science.

Recent Presentation on Messianic Prophecy: Divine Hiddenness, pt. 2. Strange Notions cites an objection that has come up here a few times before: “[O]n standard theisms, God supposedly loves us, and so desires our ultimate well-being. But that ultimate well-being necessarily involves having a positive relationship with God, and in order to have such a relationship one must first believe that God exists.
