Here are a few versions of the verse:
(1 Timothy 6:16)
NASB: who alone possesses immortality and dwells in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see. To Him be honor and eternal dominion! Amen.
NKJV: who alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see, to whom be honor and everlasting power. Amen.
CSB: who alone is immortal and who lives in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or can see, to him be honor and eternal power. Amen....
God is not saving anyone without the faithful witness of another person. Our New Testament is a compilation of the testimonies of eye witnesses of the life and ministry of Jesus Christ who heard his teachings. Anyone who is saved must believe what these men wrote. There is no other way that God is making himself and his doctrines known to us. The only people who ever saw the resurrected Lord Jesus, with the exception of Paul on the Damascus Road, (whose conversion is a typical teaching of...
On another board I am involved in a private discussion with a little under dozen members and a few staff regarding a man who exhibits questionable character. A few comments coupled with our sermon today led me to start this thread about how we deal with sin on an online forum.
The problem in that discussion became the fact that the Bible does not mention the internet. But Scripture does speak of how Christians are to behave towards one another, towards those “outside” (the World) and...
What is lacking in what God has given in order for everyman to believe in the Gosepl ?
I believe God has given all in order to freely believe and be saved . No need for regeneration to precede faith or even the idea of prevenient Grace . God has freely given all . Nothing is lacking .
The most understandable and encouraging attribute concerning salvation is that of its permanency, after all, it is called “eternal salvation” (Heb 5:9). What part of salvation is temporary, seeing that one of the meanings of redemption is that of being saved from “eternal damnation” (Mar 3:29). Is it a sensible truism that one can be eternally saved and then not eternally saved? Thus being temporarily saved from “everlasting punishment” (Mat 25:46) is clearly a concept of an oxymoron?
I often hear the argument that we are predestinated for the adoption after we believe. How is this view maintained in light of Romans 8:29-30?
Romans 8:29-30 KJV
For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.  Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
Notice the order given is this...
John 3:19-21 KJV
And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.  For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.  But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
Vs.19: Not coming to the light is what condemns men.
Vs. 20: Every one who does evil refuses to come to...
The fact that Al Sharpton is alive is proof that the kkk doesn’t exist and have not existed for decades now!
