I am a Baptist Fundamentalist and I say no.
What do the Baptist Fundamentalists who post here say, and why?
Galatians 2:15-16 presents that belief comes before faith, which means there is no requirement to have faith before one can be saved. This passage also shares that we are justified by faith (not saved by faith) alone, apart from works.
This thread is focused primarily on Galatians 2:15-16 as the core passage upon which other passages support the assertion I have made.
We ourselves are Jews by birth and not Gentile sinners; yet we know that a person is not justified by works of the law...
This awesome word which merely means to think differently, or turn around and go back, feeling remorse, has lost a considerable amount of usage in the last hundred years.
It seems no longer to impart the same depth of importance that it has in past centuries, and seems that it is soon to be scorned or consigned to “old school” no longer needed.
In replacement, the modern Grace thinking seems to go along the lines of easy confession, or a “my bad” style admission without the sting of...
Someone in a different thread asked me for historical proof of an eariler date of Revelation. I posted the following but, to this date, there has been no response. So I start a new thread on this because I believe this quote of Papias has bearing on the dating of Revelation. If no outright proof, I believe it strongly implies the earlier date.
The best and earliest source would probably be Papias, AD 130, about 50 years before Irenaeus.
Here is a quote from Ed...
There is no special gift of faith we all have been dealt a measure of faithand this faith can grow by hearing the word of God. Faith is nothing more than simply hoping Christ will save us.
We are all dealt a measure of faith to begin with.
The above statement is an assertion of universality about humans that the Bible does not confirm. Instead, the assertion comes from the philosophy of man and is then forced upon God as though it were a fact.
Is MB's assertion supported in the...
This Books is called “The Acts of the Apostles” in many Bibles. It should be referred to as “The Acts of the Holy Spirit”, as He is mentioned in Acts more than in any other Book of the entire Holy Bible.
There are some who regard the Holy Spirit as a created being, as did the early Church heretic, Origen, who lived in the 2nd/3rd century. The Jehovah’s Witnesses, as other cults, teach this blasphemy today. Further, the “Personality” of the Holy Spirit is also denied by some, who teach that...
One of the tactics of false teachers is to make claims not based on specific statements contextually considered, but on undefined statements. For example, say I claim God put invisible pink elephants in orbit around Mars. You say show me the evidence.
I say "all things are possible with God." Then I attack, by saying by your denial that God did not put them in orbit, you are diminishing the divine attributes of God, and you deny God is sovereign and does as He pleases.
Take, "No one...
Can you prove by Scripture that there is true freedom of the will?
Does not the Scripture state, “For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God's law; indeed, it cannot. Those who are in the flesh cannot please God.”
Does not the Scripture state, “But thanks be to God, that you who were once slaves of sin have become obedient from the heart to the standard of teaching to which you were committed, and, having been set free from sin, have become...
1. How come no one witnessed all these Christians being raptured? I think the best answer is that it happened truly as Jesus forewarned, like a thief in the night. The same time that that the priests were ministering in the Temple and heard the voice saying “Let us depart from here”.
In an earlier post I had gone into more detail on this, including the quote from Josephus on this event. IMO, I think the “depart from here” was a reference to those just then leaving Hades, followed a split...
