An Excellent Question

Jim over at Faith Classics has asked an excellent question regarding 2nd Peter 2:1 that concerns the potential for a believer to deny the Lord. The purpose of this article is not to redirect any discussion on this topic and I encourage everyone who would wish to comment to take part in the discussion over at Faith Classics. While I do consider Faith Classics an excellent site and heartily recommend it to everyone, the specific purpose of this article is not to promote Faith Classics. It is neither my intent to promote any specific position on the extent of the Atonement or to offer any evidence for or against any other doctrine or position. The purpose of my article is to fully explain why I consider this to be such an excellent question.

A question such as this, when considered, forces us to evaluate and prioritize our values. We must weigh our convictions and determine whether we will allow the scripture to inform them or if we must strive for a compatible interpretation. This question goes even beyond that. This question forces us to consider the very source of our strength and power. Ultimately we must ask ourselves if the strength of our hope is in the certainty of our theology or interpretation or is found only in the power of God through Christ our Lord.

KC, I appreciate the support. I am not totally settled on this subject what am really hoping to get more than the normal pat answers.

God bless!
