comment According to Two Kingdom theology, could a man hold both secular and spiritual office?
I added a leading paragraph to make explicit that Horton's views should be equated with Calvin's views.

comment Does God change?
Matt, God minimally necessarily learns the specific outcomes in history as time unfolds. God as mutable goes deeper, but that's far beyond a comment. To be fair, if you constrain your comment to only some of God's attributes (holy, just, etc) then yes, we agree.

comment What is the basis of my fractured understanding of “Sola Scriptura”?
Sola Scriptura is well defined as scripture as the sole infallible rule for faith and practice. See the WCF, 1689 LBCF, HC, near any confession of the mainline Protestant churches. Please consider using this definition to tailor your response.

comment Can I believe in evolution and still be a Christian?
"The view that physical death entered the world at the fall is actually a minority view throughout Christian history." This is the objection at issue, and that Augustine citation, while appropriate to establish a view being established deep in church history, doesn't give me information as to when the early church thinks dead became active such as to obviate or allow for macro evolution. I'm sorry, but we've ceased making progress. I think we should hang this discussion up.

@Flimzy - It does not help either of us to cite positive arguments forumated 1500 to support the existence of negative views in the preceding 1500 years. Specifically, you need to cite something in around 300AD or before to support that early Christian History views Genesis as figurative. Otherwise you're arguing from a vacuum. As for arguing from the majority, the majority of biblical scholars also think the whole book is myth. ;) I think I see where you're coming from, though, and I don't believe I agree. Thanks for the comment, though!

But that's anachronism? How is that valid?

If you have a citation for death-at-fall being a minority view, I would be thankful for it.

I'd be glad to walk you through the details, Ingo. Propose a change that you believe God can effect on Himself and remain God.
