15The LORD God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it. 16And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, “You may surely eat of every tree of the garden, 17but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.”
1 Corinthians 15:
20But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. 21For as by a man came death, by a man has come also the...
Do you read the Bible with the care and respect we would give any other text or do you treat it like a personal basket of fortune cookies? Do you take a half-sentence from anywhere in the Bible and claim its meaning, independent of its context? Is that Okay? Is it what God intended?
Would you be happy with someone treating your statements in the same manner you treat God's Word?
While searching for biographical information on J. J. Ray, author of God Wrote Only One Bible in 1955 (1976 edition at link), I ran across a June 14, 2004 thread by Paul of Eugene (Oregon) called Can any body tell me about JJ Ray?. Paul was looking for information on Ray for Maurice Robinson of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. That's been nearly 14 years, and Paul and Maurice may have found what they were looking for by now. But, as for me, I couldn't find much of anything readily...
OK, I will readily admit that my supernatural gifts, to those at my Charismatic church, have one of three sources: flesh, devil, the Living God.
I must be careful about making sure they are not of my flesh.
That said, I am convinced it is instead one of two sources that give me spiritual power: The Holy Spirit of the Living God, as I believe, or the devil.
Here is a list of the spiritual gifts I now have that would need to be tested:
I now speak in tongues, interpret tongues, perform...
I need your thoughts on the names being in the Book of Life,
We know some names are not written
And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
And whosoever was not found written in the book of lifewas cast into the lake of fire.
We know some names are blotted out
Let them be blotted out of the book of the living, and not be written with the righteous....
A thread where these...
To be "born again" [John 3; a brand spanking new child of God, crying loudly, Abba, Father], is merely the beginning, not the end:
Romans 8:19 KJB - For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.
Ephesians 4:13 KJB - Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
Ephesians 4:15 KJB - But speaking the...
Many preachers teach that 1 Corinthians 13:8-12 teaches that the sign gifts will cease, the claim is that the "perfect" of vs 10 is the completed canon of scriptures. However I have a hard time seeing how the completed scriptures were what enable Paul to "know even as I also am known". I am beginning to wonder if this interpretation of this passage of scripture is a knee jerk reaction to charismatic doctrine and chaos? I see it as a definite possibility that what the "perfect" is and what...
