8 Reasons Most Churches Never Break the 200 Attendance Mark - CareyNieuwhof.com
What has been happening and even recently is that what is referred to as "Free-Will" is often misrepresented and then argued against based on the misrepresentation. This is a logical fallacy known as a strawman argument. The "Idea of Free-Will" is presented as being divorced from God's plan and purposes and set up as strictly something man does on his own without God at all. I suppose it is believed that in order for it to truly be free will then it has to be. Maybe that is a legitimate...
We had quite a bit of disagreement on the meaning and application of Romans 11 in a thread on regeneration, so I decided to go through the whole chapter section by section. Note. I do not have a computer at this time and am doing it on my phone, so it will be very non-exhaustive.
verses 1-Having dealt with the harsh reality that the majority of Jews had rejected the Gospel, Paul asks, “has God rejected His people?” The answer is a strong negative; “God forbid”. God has not cast away His...
.....why must it then be credited as righteousness?
Take a look at the following passages.
Gen. 15:6 Abram believed the LORD, and he credited it to him as righteousness.
Rom. 4:2 If, in fact, Abraham was justified by works, he had something to boast about—but not before God.a 3 What does Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.”
Rom. 4:5 However, to the one who does not work but trusts God who justifies the ungodly, their faith is credited as...
The challenge I am putting up here in the OP is for anyone to show even one scripture that says God's 4th Commandment of the 10 commandments (Exodus 20:8-11) which was spoken and written by God himself to his people, has been abolished and we are now commanded to keep Sunday as a Holy day.
Can anyone please show me where in all the bible does is say (SOLA SCRIPTURA; Scripture only please)...
1. That God's 4th commandments 7th day Sabbath has been abolished?
2. That Jesus is a Sabbath?
Romans 10:17 tells us that faith comes from hearing and hearing from the word of Christ.
If election is not a predetermined choice by God in eternity past to decide who will be saved. Then what about people who never have an opportunity to hear the word of Christ? Was it their free will choice to reject the Gospel if they never have a chance to hear the Gospel in the first place?
There are two or three views. Water, the Spirit or the Body of Chrisr (1 Corinthians 12:12-13). What I would like to see are, as much as possible definitve explainations for each. Where I would be able to give a defence for each view. It is my view, the term for baptism, unqualified, refers to water. So you know in advance where I am coming from.
Generally, it seems to be believed that called here refers to God's drawing or invitation in the temporal realm.
Rom. 8:30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified. (emphasis mine)
Wondering if that's true. The very next usage of this word by Paul is in Romans 9.
Rom. 9:7 Nor because they are his descendants are they all Abraham’s children. On the contrary, “It is through Isaac that your...
