comment Is to ignore Satan also to underestimate the potential he has to assault the Christian?
Yes, as Death seems to be an anthropomorphism of the concept of death.

comment Does the Bible condemn white lies?
This answer equates lying with bearing false witness, but that can't be true if Rehab is commended as righteous in lying to protect the spies.

@GregMcNulty good question, and the answer is that we don't. We are called to resist him, not cast him anywhere. dleyva3 is referring to Revelation 20:14 where God throws death and Hell into the lake of fire for final destruction during judgment day.

comment God | The Shepherd That “Breaks Legs”?
@AJHenderson I suppose you're right. It's a more sophisticated argument to talk about suffering as a result of discipline from the Lord. We know biblically that God disciplines his people, but the mechanics of that discipline aren't spelled out directly. We know that God causes/ordains suffering in believers. Finally we know that God always works for the good of his people, so it's possible to draw the inference that God may discipline his people through suffering for their good, but since it is an inference, it shouldn't be necessarily stated dogmatically.

comment God | The Shepherd That “Breaks Legs”?
@AJHenderson maybe not exactly pertinent, it is more of a blanket statement. All things, includes, well, all things. Pleasant things, discomfort, discipline, and so forth would all be considered things that work to the good. I wouldn't however want to use this passage to make the point that the Bible says that God disciplines people. He does, but this isn't the passage for it.

The meat of the question is how, specifically, can it be said that every transgression did receive a just retribution when it appears that there are yet some transgressions which have not.

comment How to be saved after adultery?
@GregMcNulty or I guess a third option, that it is convenient in the sense that there is a perfect biblical example to serve as a case study. That really is convenient.

comment How to be saved after adultery?
@GregMcNulty convenient as in an easy way out so that you can commit more adultery, or convenient as in great that it saves you from damnation? The first is not indicative of faith/repentance and the second is a colossal understatement.
