No actually they didn't know. Jesus told them prior he was to die and they questioned it,
22 Now while they were staying in Galilee, Jesus said to them, “The Son of Man is about to be betrayed into the hands of men, 23 and they will kill Him, and the third day He will be raised up.” And they were exceedingly sorrowful.
He predicted it 3 times that he was to rise, and they still doubted it after! And you believe they understood he was to die comeback alive and then...
In another thread - Steve stated he is opposed to Family Planning.
Now, Gen 9:7 states: And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein.
So is it wrong for a couple to practice family planning ?
Some will say that, we have accomplished that mission,
and now, we should practice family planning so we do not
overpopulate the earth

I have a few reasons to leave the SBC now, but I wanted to discuss with you guys and my church leaders whether I should stay or not. Here are my current reasons for wanting to leave, which may expand honestly:
1. The denomination is too "big tent." I now believe that doctrine and moral teaching is of extremely high importance. A significant minority, if not a majority at times, of Southern Baptist churches teach or enforce things I could in no way support. (Charismaticism, a kind of...
I think this is the proper forum for this topic.
Some on the BB think that C.H.S. only made one nod toward the RV and its textual decisions. I am here to set the record straight.
It is true he favored the KJV in may ways over that of the RV, however, in terms of textual choices many times he held to the readings of the RV --not that of the KJV.
"...we desire that the common version may be purged of every blunder of transcribers, or addition of human ignorance, or human knowledge, that so...
Do we bow down enough in church services?
The meaning of the Greek word most commonly translated "worship" (proskuneo) is :
worship or veneration of a divine or supposedly divine object, expressed concretely with falling face down in front of someone (Friberg Lexicon)
This meaning is very clear in many of the uses of the word "worship" (proskuneo) in the Bible. For example:
NIV 1 Corinthians 14:25b So they will fall down and worship God, exclaiming, "God is really among you!"
This thread is to explore the wrath of God.
Let me start by pointing out that Ephesians 2, 4, 5, 6 all use the word wrath.
For example: 6Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.
It is not uncommon to read into the word "wrath" terms such as rage, fury, barely or out of controlled anger.
However, that is not (imo) the type of display or the thinking that should be attached to the use of the word...
NOTE: I am placing this thread in the Calvinism & Arminian Debate forum because it will invariably turn that way. I am just saving time.
With Mark Corbett's thread having been closed, I want to turn the attention on how to approach scripture when a single word or phrase seems to be the central point of a person's argument. For instance, the word "called" in Matthew 22:14 was cited as proof that the Gospel call can be rejected (conditional election). I made the case earlier in the thread...
I believe in Eternal Security. However, I have found a deep problem with Eternal Security of the believer as commonly interpreted.
I believe Eternal Security may be giving many people who aren't Spirit indwelled a ton of false confidence. Like myself and a number of people I know over the years that are all positive we weren't saved and Spirit indwelled until a considerable time after becoming a church-going Christian.
As a result, and also because of the need to understand the bible...
I am a retired police officer. Through the years I have always defended officers. I have always, unconditionally sided with them in their disputes against the public. In one encounter, my perspective has changed 180 degrees. I now fully understand why so many people now hate police. The rotten apples ruin it for the rest of them.
