Thank you Mark, I appreciate the encouraging word. Shira you write in a way that is clear, effective, relatable and easily understood by all. Representative of that to which I aspire.

Bro. Josef, great answers you gave concerning the reprobate mind. Thank you brother for the Truth. So many want to change the Truth to a lie every single day. They simply deny the Truth. Why? because they have a reprobate mind. It is not possible for them to change their minds yet they believe they have a will that is free, but their will is in bondage to sin. Dead in trespasses and sins, it is their nature yet they don't want to admit it.
---Mark_V. on 10/9/13


when God turns anyone over to a reprobate mind, He is just saying you can do what you want and God won't interfere. God will also turn us over to satan for the destruction of the flesh. I pray I never cross that line.

"What is a reprobate mind?" A mind lost, without meaningful direction, without hope, without God, 'in' - as absorbed by - 'the world' - as this sensually based system of things, controlled, and dictated to, and by, those sensually based perceptions of the outwardly tangible adornments of this age that entice and seduce the senses.
"How do you get a reprobate mind?
You do not. That mind is an innate part of man's carnal nature.
"How do you get rid of a reprobate mind??" You do not. Father does.
Father instructs us to yield to ourselves to Him as a living sacrifice, that we may be conformed to the image of His Son. How? Through a renewing of the mind via His Spirit and His word.

Thank you donna66 and bruceb for your insights on "REPROBATE".

I checked out your references and they all seem sound.

You have saved me from going down a wrong path.

Apocatastasis

I also checked with a modern day refiner of silver. He told me that after the refining process "by fire" ,which is so complete, that which is left over cannot be refined again.

It is discarded as worthless. Reprobate Silver.

May Christ be formed in us before our souls receive their dismission from this body.

For as the tree falls so shall it lie

and no matter how much of heaven's rain falls on a field of tares it will never become wheat.

teri --- "disapproved" might have been used. It is a synonym for "reprobate". But check any good dictionary. You'll come up with other, more powerful, definitions for reprobate e.g. depraved, perverse, perverted, immoral...
any of these would have done.

The construction is not re-probate. It is similar to "reprove", which is not re-prove.

Etymology: Middle English, from Late Latin reprobatus, past participle of reprobare
(the word can be either a verb or an adjective)
---Donna66 on 8/30/09


If "dokimos" is translated into English as "Approved", why is "adokimos" translated as "reprobate" instead of "Disapproved"?

Is there a reason the translators used this construction? "RE + PROBATE"

Since "Nous"(Reason/Mind)is the supposed ruler of "Psyche" (Soul) and one of the three distinct parts of the soul is it not proper to, by extension, refer to reprobate nous as reprobate soul?
---Tery on 8/29/09


Well, I certainly can tell you the truth! A reprobate mind is a person who prefers to do evil rather than good....I wonder how many people in the world who has this reprobate mind. Unfortunately I know one person who has it. It is important to remember that it is NOT A DISEASE OF THE MIND. It is pure evil!
---catherine on 8/26/09




I beleive reprobate is, to be turned. Once you have recieced the True Enlightenment of God's Word (God's Church), then getting envolved with that is deceiving light (Man-made relig-org's churches,trinity-islam-muslam & the such like.), God Will turn you over to that & you'l believe them lies to be dammed. All because of the god of this world,2nd Cori. 11 v's 14-15.

Even the ENGLISH definition of reprobate is not what Terry says. Terry shows some imagination in his definition, but Webster would disagree.
Webster calls it unworthy, unacceptable, or evil. Other English sources say "depraved, perverse, perverted, immoral"
---Donna66 on 8/23/09


Reprobate: Unfit, unworthy, disapproved, disqualified, substandard, rejected, failure, self-righteous, contrary, delusional, deceived...

Some people know & know that they know. It's good to know your course (heading) is bearing true. Others know but don't know that they know. It's okay. They need an ocassional memory jog. Many of us don't know & honestly know we don't know. All of the above folk are teachable. But, then there are the people who don't know but don't know they don't know. They're self-proclaimed know it alls & only God can help them!
---Leon on 8/23/09


Terry,

It's not always wise to apply modern English definitions to the Hebrew or Greek scriptures, even if they feel correct.

Reprobate is used once, in Ro 1:28...

reprobate: Gr. adokimos -- not standing the test: not approved: unfit

mind: Gr. nous (from the base, ginosko) -- the mind, comprising alike the faculties of perceiving and understanding and those of feeling, judging, determining


As can be seen above, from Strong's, and by a reading of Ro 1:20-Ro 2:16, there is no mention of any redemption through the erroneous concept of a "pergatory". The only second chance is through the continued faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus.
---BruceB on 8/23/09


Reprobate Mind

RE + PROBATE "Psyche"

"AGAIN" + "PROBATION" "Soul"

To place a soul on probation again so that it may be proven.

Not rejection but a second chance

Reprobate is the opposite of elect.

Frances
Atheists by definition DO NOT BELIEVE that there is a God. I was raised as an atheist and was saved as an adult. Until then, I didn't even really know who Jesus was:). But now I have been Christian for 30 yrs. Not all atheist's work against God. I never thought about God when I was atheist. When one is involved in another religion, he/she is anti-Christ and is working against God. This is a dangerous position. My suggestion to you is that we all (no matter what religion or lack of) have the same chance to be saved. Atheists have an equal chance to accept Jesus Christ and be forgiven like anyone else. Thanks for your post:).LOve, JOdy

I will tell you this much: A person with such a mind is destined for HELL. This is a person who rather do evil than good. I will be glad when God sends all wicked men to hell and all the Saints to heaven. What is the good news? That's it.
---catherine on 7/27/08


I wonder what this world would be like if all the wicked people would ship out, and stop taking up space. As long as the wicked are in control of everything, everything will be messy in this world. Do you want to know why? I shall tell you why! Because the wicked do not have a healthy mind. A healthy mind is well connected to a healthy spirit. And to have a healthy spirit you need God. And the only way to have God is to be born-again.+++

2Co 4:4 In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing . . . the gospel . . . Christ . . .

2Co 6:14 Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness?

Atheist,

Since God can remove your blindness - Luk 24:32, why hasn't He? Has God left you blind because He loves you?

You are here serving Satan, sowing discord, because you don't even believe in God. God hates those that sow discord - Pr 6:19.

I am the Christian, not you.

Yet, I hope you repent and RUN to God.

Only GOD has the ability to know who will always reject Jesus AND also reject the guarantee of eternal life...

Ephesians 1:14
"which is the guarantee of our inheritance"

God knows our final destination because of HIS 'FORE'knowledge. Since WE don't have FOREknowledge, we cannot know, neither should PREdestination be any concern of ours. Ideally, we SHOULD be at peace about this, but human nature is that we'd rather be puffed up and pretend that we are 'the elite'/special ones and bicker. This is one of the reasons unbelievers have gotten such a bad idea about the living God (and one of the reasons that Aetheists have so sincerely rejected what they know is not "LOVE",...they reject 'MAMMON' Christianity).
---more_excellent_way on 7/24/08


Unbelievers haven't yet had a chance to reject TRUE God (LOVE), they have only rejected FALSE god (institutional Christianity has always mispresented God by putting Him in a bad light).

EVERYONE on earth has salvation available to them...
Luke 3:6
"and ALL flesh shall see the salvation of God."
but not everyone has a peaceful and just spirit.

We should know Him as "Abba Father" (dear Father, Romans 8:15), not master/overseer, and we should be a "FRIEND", not slave/servant (James 2:23).

A person will have a reprobate/REBELLIOUS mind until they learn/have a peaceful and just spirit and can LOVE the creator (instead of simply have FAITH).

Jer 6:30

Reprobate silver shall [men] call them, because the LORD hath rejected them.

Rom 1:28

And even as they did not like to retain God in [their] knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient,

2Ti 3:8

Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.

Titus 1:16

They profess that they know God, but in works they deny [him], being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.

A servant:

"Prov 8:17 I love them that love me

Restated, this means, "I hate them that hate Me."

I have read numerous "interpretations" of Bible verse. This is undoubtably the worst I have ever seen.

You have changed the meaning to the exact opposite. A message of love and forgiveness for all to encourage the same in return, you have changed to one of hate for hate? who's the Christain here, you or me?
---atheist on 7/23/08


Atheist,

Jas 2:19 You believe that there is one God, you do well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

Matt 8:29 . . . Jesus, you Son of God? are you come here to torment us before the time?

Luke 8:28 . . . Jesus, you Son of God most high? I beseech you, torment me not.

Matt 25:30 And cast you the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Luke 13:28

Rejecting Jesus & rejecting truth is why they will suffer. Even the devils fear that suffering.

Prov 8:17 I love them that love me

Restated, this means, "I hate them that hate Me."

I hope you will surrender to Jesus. The devils would if they could.

Jody, in your opinion I have made wild statements and I humbly apologize if I have offended anyone. But I speak as I find. I am a reasoning creature, by the grace of God who made us all reasoning creatures. So if someone can persuade me to change, I will do so. I have changed on several postitions so far. I admitted I was wrong about Jesus - he never sinned even as a boy. I have admitted that it is possible the dinosaur bones are (some of them) real bones (though not of this planet) and I have admitted that we are actually predestined, when I preferred to think it was about what we did, not what God has done already. So please, if you have time, Jody, instruct me where I am going wrong. I am also changing concerning praying for the dead.
---frances008 on 7/22/08


Although this is a time when the god of this world is in control it is a time of grace for Christians and unbelievers. Christians, through persecution are going to inherit the promise of Salvation. Unbelievers are being allowed to grow together as tares with the wheat. But that doesn't mean God cannot see what is happening. He is keeping records. It would be wrong of us to say otherwise. God is ultimately in control and will decide and using his Word to judge us by, whether we have believed and obeyed, or disbelieved and sinned. Unbelief is sin. Other sins make us filthy compared to God but our belief is like a white robe that covers all our sins.

Jody, why did Jesus say 'My father's house has many mansions'? Why does it say in the Bible that God will save whoever he likes. God is the boss, not you or I. Who knows how many Buddhists, Muslims and Jews have the Holy Spirit in them. They just have not been introduced to the true God of Christianity or the true Jesus only a false one that our political leaders represent to them. Jesus is clear about the evil people who stop others from getting to Heaven receiving a worse fate than a millstone around the neck etc. God means 'good' and is good and there is no evil or unfairness in him. Atheists work deliberately against God, they believe in Him alright, they just happen to hate him.
---frances008 on 7/22/08


Jody, do not limit God. He is able to convert people in the ambulance on the way to the hospital, if they are chosen by God. Even in the moments before they enter Hell. The eternal soul has many chances to receive Christ in my opinion. They will be chosen according to what kind of people they are. Atheists are not a prime example of fertile ground, rather they have seared their consciences by the work they have done against God, by their sinful unbelief. They have considered seeking God, and rejected the idea. This is a different kettle of fish to characters who believe sincerely that their god is the true one, and have made an honest mistake.
---frances008 on 7/22/08


Frances, you really have made allot of wild statements. Don't have time to respond to them all. I do want to say that it is misleading to suppose that "good" Buddhists, Muslims and Jews can go to heaven bc they can be converted while leaving atheists out of this scheme:). An active nonbeliever goes to Hell. It does not matter if they are Buddhist,Moslim,Jew or atheist. One must accept Jesus Christ as saviour to qualify for heaven. An atheist has the same chance(or better)for conversion as anyone.:)
---jody on 7/22/08


Frances ... You say ... "Atheist, I am not surprised you approve of AlanofUk's 'one size fits all' God"

Two points ... My God is the same as yours ...there a a few perceptions whiere we may differ, although I don't recall that I have ever disagreed with anything you have said about God (except maybe on predestination?)

There is only one God, and only one Saviour.

I have tried to defuse the hatred that is sometimes shown here for different denominations and shades of understanding, but that does not make me a one God fits all person

The other point is that I see nowhere in anything that Atheist says that he approves of any God at all, let alone my God, who is the same as yours.

Man oh Man are you ready for this: A reprobate mind is someone who pursues evil in preference to good. This person God has condemned to eternal damnation. Do we know of anyone like this? I do.
---catherine on 7/22/08


Atheist, I am not surprised you approve of AlanofUk's 'one size fits all' God. The reason that we all argue is that on this site there are only a handful of us who agree in the God of the Bible, and those few of us who agree and believe in Him have no differences. This is difficult for you to see. You look at Alan and you say 'Now that is a god I can believe in.' Alan, you will notice has a lot of votes. He has a god that a lot of people can accept because his god is the god of this world. There is One True God. The believers in other gods are deceivers/deceived and you will probably get along with them. 'Broad is the way that leads to destruction and many will take it, narrow the way that leads to eternal life and few will find it.'
---frances008 on 7/21/08


Atheist, I don't know who told you that believing is the condition for escaping hell. There will be many self-proclaimed believers in God in Hell. Also, who told you that good Buddhists, Muslims and Jews are going to Hell? I have not seen that written in the Bible. I believe some of them will be converted before they die, and the children are not accountable for their religious practices. Finally, some people may secretly love Christ, or do a kindness to a Christian in their life, which God will honour with a reward. It is atheists who are going around spreading these ideas of a nasty unfair God. For that no doubt they will go to Hell. There they will be free to blaspheme Jesus to His Face, because I am sure Jesus visits Hell.
---frances008 on 7/21/08


A reprobate mind is one who rejects God and especially hates Jesus Christ. They are reprobate because of sin, which has resulted in God giving them over to Satan to learn a lesson. If they go through a lot of suffering then God is being merciful and trying to get them to repent. If they are not going through any suffering, that is because God does not want them, for some reason (self induced).

Atheist, you will not be tortured in hell for all eternity. God tells us to love our enemies and to forgive them. If God expects that from us, then we can expect the same from him. If we can't, then God is untrustworthy and therefore not God.
---old_guy on 7/20/08


Part 1 - Atheist, it is true that God made you, and that He calls you. You can answer His call if you live in obedience. Because God will honour your obedience with a relationship with Him. The reason you are going to be tortured in Hell for eternity if you do not choose God is because it is evil not to choose good (God). All men are born with original sin. Some realize the deal that God is offering all men. Others refuse to.

Alan,

From reading your posts I have no doubt that your god is not like that. (And your beliefs guide and help you in good ways.) That sadistic god is more like Gordon's.

But that's one of my continual points. Everyone here claims that there is one god, but what he did, how he did it, what he wants us to do, whether there's an afterlife, and the punishments or rewards in it, and all different for everyone.

When it get's down to it, on what you each consider important, then you start talking about false religions, gods, teaching, and reprobates in the most unloving and "unchristian" ways.

Your gods and beliefs separate people more than bring them together.

Where's the god in that?

In reading your conversation between the atheists and alan, I shall say this: Everything works OUT for the glory of GOD. God uses people like you. And what's so funny about it is, you do not even know that you are being used by a God that you refuse to acknowledge. I think it's funny as all get out. He shall also use you for His glory on Judgment Day, when you and all unbelievers will be forced to bow before my God, the true God, and declare that Jesus is Lord. Ofcourse, then it shall be too late. This too shall be for His glory. The good news is: Even Atheists, if God so chooses, can be saved. From HELL. Have a good Sunday, my friend. Thank you Jesus.

I have been identified here as a reprobate, although it bothers me not to be predestined to damnation in a hell and by a god that doesn't exist. Although, I think it quite hypocritcal and stupid to be judged as an immoral person by people who have never met me.

But apparently, my foundation, as predestined by god, lies even deeper, as I am an atheist. Apparently, he made me in such a way as not to believe in him at all.

Why then is your god so sadistic as to create me and predestined me to have the beliefs that I have, and then plan to torture me for eternity for simply doing what he made and planned for me to do?

That's a farse. There is no such thing as predestination, or predestined to be a reprobate.

If you consider yourself reprobate, that would be of your own decision to be one.
If you enjoy the idea of being a reprobate, it's doubtful that you have actually become one.

Blogging about Christianity doesn't make one a Christian and thinking you might be too far gone for God is false humility and error.

Rom. 1:28. These have left the truth, they call good evil and evil good (Isa 5:20).

Their actions, beliefs, and teachings, are an example of heresy and sin.

On the other hand there is the past more accurate definition, which is based on pre-destination and Calvinist doctrine. There are those elected to go to Heaven, and there are the non-elect (the reprobates, from the Latin "reprobatus" meaning reproved or condemned) who were destined to Hell.

Its use currently seems to have devolved to be a name attached by those who know their going to Heaven to the others they believe will not.
