    I don't want to know more about the philosophy behind transhumanism. I want to know who is involved particularly "in high places" [Ephesians 6:12] both secular and non-secular. Caution noted and not without consideration, thanks for your concern.

    Men, I agree with both of your statements. Mankind is deceived by Satan to attempt to 'build a better man' and relieve himselves from the guilt of sin. "The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God." [Psalms 53:1] Then, when man's endeavors backfire there is Satan to pick up the pieces... "And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me." [Matthew 4:9] But, I'm still interested to know who these people are that are involved in this 'fool's errand.'

    Just another way the Spirit of the Anti-Christ manifests itself into a human philosophy.  It all has one agenda - the removal of God in an Institute of belief, practice, and or language. 
    I don't really care about the intricacies.

    Man has been seeking this since the fall. Look at the old myths with humans mating with gods and becoming demigods and humans who were punished being changed into animals or plants. And despite what our position might be concerning "the sons of God" of Genesis 6 (i.e. fallen angels or the godly line of Seth) the stories about interbreeding of the heavenly with the earthly were greatly debated since the time of the so-called Church Fathers even hundreds of years before that amongst the Jews. I'm presently reading the Book of Enoch (yes, I know it's a fraud) but the legends were still there and that book still dates from 200 BC to 200 AD.
    If falling angels showed up today saying they are aliens from another galaxy who have arrived to help us "evolve" you know millions would look to cross breed with them and anyone who opposed will be labeled an "alienphobe".

    Transhumanism
    Transhumanism is a class of philosophies of life that seek the continuation and acceleration of the evolution of intelligent life beyond its currently human form and human limitations by means of science and technology, guided by life-promoting principles and values. – Max More (1990)
    “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.” [Romans 1:22-23]
    Transhumanism is just another attempt to avert God and build a "better" human. Fromr the little I've read it appears to be a global movement. I sure would like to have a list of their membership. It might help me understand some of our politicians actions and activities. Anyone else looked into 'transhumanism?

    1Timothy115 got a reaction from SureWord in Was there any Baptist who interpreted Jonah 3: 10 that repentance of sin is a work prior to Steven Anderson?   
    I've seen a lot of debate over Genesis 6:6 "repented the LORD" and other places in scripture.  I believe that what happened was God correcting the course of mankind and every land creature  man had touched. If God was repenting, who was He repenting to? Who was He required to change for? God observed Noah living in His will; so, mankind was preserved which goes with Malachi 3:6, Hebrews 13:8, James 1:17, 1 Peter 3:20, and 2 Peter 2:5. Hebrews 11:7, 1 Peter 3:20, and 2 Peter 2:5.
    I believe what we call God repentance is actually man's obedience or return to obedience and aligning with the will of God. It's man turning into the will of God and not attempting to go against the current of God's will. Such was the case with Nineveh. Opposed to everything Holy, but when they turned to the will of God, they were no longer out of God's will.
    I've always likened, God's repent, to a man attempting to paddle up stream against a fast current. how long before he realizes he has to go near to the shore to continue. Like us coming near to the Lord and into God's will. "Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you." James 4:8

    When you "believe", it is called "faith". All the rest that they did simply demonstrated that faith. They believed enough to take action.
    The actual "repentance" occurred in their hearts the moment they "believed God".

    Steven Anderson is an anti-semite who essentially believes every IFB pastor or layman who disagrees with him on any issue is going to hell. This, of course, is to establish his complete power and authority over his flock to prevent any questioning of his teachings. Apparently, though,  recently he's had some serious personal issues within his own family that led to a departure of many from his church. These things happen. Pastors can have wives and children who do bad things but the difference here is Anderson isn't going to hell because of it. If this was to happen to any other preacher it would be a sure sign they are possessed of devils and going to hell. In other words, he's a hypocrite.
    Now, that being said, the first time the word "repent" is used in the bible is in Genesis 6:6 and it's the Lord who repents. Following the Law of First Mention this would make repentance an act of changing one's mind and regretting a decision which leads to change but the change itself is not repentance just the fruit of repentance.
    Remember when our Lord told the Twelve to forgive a brother 70x7? That was a brother who repented but still kept committing the same offense yet he still was considered to have repented. Sometimes the works may take awhile to follow 
    Apparently, God can show regret and change his mind about something even though he's omniscient and immutable. My guess it's a case of anthropomorphism.

Nor does it matter if Jesus spoke Old English (which all of us know He did not) or Hebrew, Latin, Greek, or Russian. The fact is that OB is a KJV site. Refrain from using other versions.
