Often perseverance of the saints will come up when explaining salvation, and calvinists or non-calvinists may quip: "well if you believe in eternal security you also believe in perseverance of the saints". Not quite. Perseverance of the saints is a byproduct of predestination . So they are...

I tend to agree with you about the unique quality of the Church Age, but Jesus quoted Psalm 82, when He said, "you are Gods". So what did that mean for Israel? We know this was before the hypostatic union, so was this an acknowledgment of a future age of corporate hupostasis? I'm glad you...

If we are indeed Gods, being in union with Christ, does that mean that hupostasis is extended to Church Age believers as a whole (to a lesser degree)? Hupostasis in the sense of 'GOD-MAN', yes I believe that would be correct (also as you mentioned only possible in this dispensation due to requiring...
