Murder in the Holy Bible is a very serious crime, which is the unlawful, deliberate, taking of another human life. Because humans have been created in the "Image of God", it is one of the highest crimes against the Lord, and other humans. The Bible's punishment for murder, has been from the Book of Genesis, to Revelation, death. The passage in Revalation show the seriousness of this crime, and its punishment is, "the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death”, which is a far...
I realize that I have not participated on this forum for several years but I need some help with a problem. I have a man in my church who is insisting that the book Trail of Blood is legitimate. I have tried to dissuade him from this by using the argument that any seminary history professor worth his or her salt will tell you that Trail of Blood may be nice in sentiment but sentiment doesn't make something true. Are there any definitive quotes or books out there that can help me show this...
16 For this reason the Jews persecuted Jesus, and sought to kill Him, because He had done these things on the Sabbath. 17 But Jesus answered them, “My Father has been working until now, and I have been working.”18 Therefore the Jews sought all the more to kill Him, because He not only broke the Sabbath, but also said that God was His own Father, making Himself equal with God. 19 Then Jesus answered and said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what...
Now to be clear i do hold to eternal security. Not the Calvinist version of it ( based on ' election ' ) . But After we believe we are sealed by the Holy Spirit until the day of redemption. We cannot be unsealed .
So my post is about why there is no Joy in Calvinism . I first noticed this from listening to Paul washer . I could not understand why he had such anguish in his face and why so much railing and ranting towards his listeners on right living and the dangers of false teachings ect...
Hello Forum Readers,
The following essay is my personal opinion.
I am not trying to provoke anyone in particular but I know some may become irritated.
This essay has many aspects of an argument but it reflects the argument I have had in my own mind.
I hope you will still be able to receive me.
It will take a few postings to fit all of it in here.
I have joy.
I would like to present a little of why that is.
The Ooooh Song
Here we go!
“And He (Jesus) said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to all creation”
This is a command by the Lord Jesus Christ, that is to take the Gospel Message to “all creation”, which is the entire human race. Matthew 28:19-20; Luke 24:46-48; Acts 1:8, say the same thing;
“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold,...
... choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD
In order for that verse to say to choose, we must look at the definitions of "choice"
: power of choosing
Between a number of options or alternative courses of action
Webster says options are.
something that may be chosen: such as...
(2 Cor. 5:18-19) " And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation."
Note the distinctions made between 'us' and the 'world', and 'their trespasses'.
What is the World? (Eph. 2:2) "Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of...
I assert with confidence that,
1. God's omniscience allows Him to be the most free and most creative Being, omniscience in no way reduces His transcendence -- Does the LORD have freedom as the greatest creative Being? I ask because does God have to decide from eternity past all He wills to do in whatever future occurs? If God knows the future exhaustively, which would have to include His own future works, then He at one time might had more freedom and creativity than He does now. He must...
Friel tackles this. Frankly, I think even he's too squishy on it, but he does concede it's time for Pastor's to get firm and denounce it.
