    But why can’t the torah give life? Because its from the god who has no intention but to condemn all to hell no matter how well they keep his law. This is why we need the Trinity to save us from the god of the torah. This is why although against “the law” Paul says he is “still under law to Christ.” Because there is still a law, but it is the law of a different God.

    I know you ignore comments here and that’s fine. But at least read this one. Its off topic so don’t post it. It is to apprise you that I mentioned you in a comment on another blog, as well as your term “progressive justification.”

    I’ll even give you my comment so you don’t have to click the link if you don’t want to. BTW my email is fake so you can’t respond to me that way.

    I am curious though on your take on my take on Doug Wilson’s take that only men need salvation and that marrying and pleasing the wife’s every whim till death is the source of his salvation. I know you have written on the Protestant Divorce Mill. But I think there you only tackled the notion of reformed elders commanding men to divorce their wives due to the husbands not submitting to falae reformed docrrine.

    Your blog has gotten boring and I can see you ran out of topics. So I present you one you have yet to address. And that is a specific type of progressive justification scheme—and one that is a major part of the foundation of the Protestant Divorce Mill. One that even is found in churches outside evangelicalism as well as obviously inside.

    The comment:

    Their beef is that Dalrock exposed that they are heretics who equate marriage to Christianity, teach that only men need saving, and teach that men are saved by getting married AND keeping their wife happy until death. I only found Dalrock’s site a few months ago, and going back and reading those old posts and the comments, that’s how I see it. To these people (Doug Wilson and the like) the idea of two people who are Christians and already saved getting married for normal reasons (i.e. not for the man to save himself in a progressive justification scheme of pleasing his wife from then on for justification) is totally alien. The idea of two Christians who are saved marrying and strengthening each other is alien to them—marriage is beyond the Catholic view of a sacrament, the man has to crucify himself daily on the cross of the wife’s will to be saved, according to these Wilsonites. Marriage is not in the category of Christian living or santification to them but of justification. (Oh no, I’m starting to sound a bit like Paul Dohse of Paul’s Passing Thoughts.)
