comment What did Paul mean when he said, “ We are seated in the heavenly realms”?
@Jas3.1 - We are still the biological descendants of Adam on this earth (physical bodies), and thus we are still exposed to our inherent rebellious Adamic nature. Thus we are to consider our bodies "dead," since we were united with Christ's death on the cross (Rom 6:5-6).

comment Are the thoughts of the Gentiles conflicting in Romans 2:15?
Frank is there any tie to the New Covenant in the context, where the law is written on the heart (Heb 8:10 and Heb 8:16)?

Friend - please provide an analysis that will better help us to understand your view. Anecdotes do not always help to sway the views of others. If you have an interesting view, please describe your analysis! Thanks!

comment Forgiveness, yes or no?
Thanks for joining us! If you like, you can hyperlink your verse citations, so that with a click anyone can check the verse (to include its wider context). I had a quick question for you: Do you think that overlooking sins (forgiveness or passing over) is warranted in cases where the believer is sinning against the collective body of believers, or perhaps against the authority of the one who is leading those believers? In other words, is there a difference between sinning one-on-one (forgiveness is always unconditional) and sinning one-on-many (forgiveness is sometimes conditional)?

comment What evidence supports Matthew as Paul's source?
I read the article, and the author points to The Fragments of Papias, where there is mention of the writings of Matthew as one of two source documents for the gospel accounts--the other being Mark's Gospel. (Please click here.) Finally, eschatological passages in Thessalonians had possible referents to Mark (Chapter 13). So there appeared only one passage in Matthew that aligned in concept with one passage from Paul, and that concerned the wisdom of the Lord hidden from "the wise and intelligent," who never seem to arrive at truth.

comment What does “teachers of the Torah” mean in 1 Timothy 1:7?
@fdp - I use antinomianism in context of the Christian New Testament (for example, fornication or drunkenness), which were not "unlawful" by the standards of Roman Law.

@fdb - Thank you for holding me accountable; I have added more information (to include some Biblical references) to back my suppositions. Thanks!
