comment What does “in the image of God” mean?
Instinctive behaviour is believed to be a result of the development of traits most suitable for survival. There is an interesting use of game theory to illustrate thus point. Morality is better described as conscious choice of acts of normative rightness, regardless of outcomes.

comment What does “in the image of God” mean?
I read that the only animal with anything resembling moral sensibilities was the South American vampire bat that shares precious blood meal with starving roostmates by regurgitation. Google vampire bat bloodmeal. The question to ask is if these are instinctive, like the maternal instinct.

comment Is there any Christian group that takes Matthew 23:8-10 literally?
Oops, my bad. I don't believe there are groups that apply the strictures of that passage to the secular realm, prohibiting the addressing of biological fathers as Father.

comment Are Calvinism and Arminianism compatible?
@San Jacinto: I responded that Arminians do not believe someone can make a false confession that disqualifies them. Lack of works does the latter. Was that helpful? :)

comment Are Calvinism and Arminianism compatible?
Arminians believe that a response from man is possible and is required, it being belief in Christ manifested through good works, as final judgment is based on good works, ranging from mere giving of water to extensive caring for the downtrodden. People who call Him Lord and even do miracles are called lawbreakers and cast out. They left out caring for the disadvantaged. Progressive societies care for their weak, unlike the jungle. But then animals do not have the image of God.

comment What must one do in order to lose his or her salvation?
Israel was rescued from Egypt. They never went back. However no one over twenty reached their destination. If you want, I can correlate this situation to the Christian life. Not everyone accepts that salvation is reaching your destination.
