Dispensationalism as a system seeks to give an answer to what is contained in the bible as each of the other eschatological systems do.
Some Like John MacArthur and John Of Japan can give a biblical reason for their belief.
Others have been exposed to this system and trapped in it. What do I mean by trapped?
They have no real reason or cannot articulate a reasonable scriptural position.
They will argue until they are blue in the face, or tweet out ideas, but cannot actually defend their...
So this post will probably get some people heated. It’s not intended to, but based off of many other threads I’ve read, I can only come to the conclusion that it will attract those from both far-sides of the Bible translation spectrum.
When do we finally say that we have enough English translations? At what point does it become more about making a buck than ensuring the Word of God is available in English? Look at all the English translations we have available!
Now I am not saying we...

Hematidrosis - Wikipedia
Jesus was so distressed in the garden of Gethsemane over His coming death that He was literally sweating blood, a medical condition known as hematidrosis, which only Luke reported on due to his background in medicine. Jesus purchased us with His unfathomable suffering, so that we’d live in obedient gratitude for the preciousness of His sacrifice.
Atheist-turned-Christian Lee Strobel had been hesitant to accept...
I understand the reservations some have about teachers like Joel Osteen and Joyce Meyer, but if God is sovereign over salvation, can't God use their preaching to draw His elect unto Himself anyway, despite how questionable certain particulars of their theology might be?
Also, are there any contemporary preachers who focus on the power of positive thinking who don't have a questionable theology?
So let me start off by saying that I really do not wish for this post to become a text source debate and why you do or do not think the source of the texts is good or bad in your opinion.
I simply want to get other believers input on the NIV 2011. It’s at the top of the charts for sales in 2021, with the KJV at #2. I’ve read some criticism regarding the 2011 revision, and wondering if anyone has any input on it, or can further discuss the pros and cons of the revision.
For the record, I...
There is a difference between Biblical inerrancy and Biblical infallibility. While biblical infallibility claims that the Bible is without error in every matter required for salvation, Biblical inerrancy claims that the Bible is without error in every detail possible, including scientific and historical details.
The distinction between Biblical infallibility and Biblical inerrancy matters because many people, when first confronted with the apparent contradictions in the Gospels, stop...
In at least six passages, the Spirit speaks about when the Israelites worshiped a golden calf in the wilderness (Exod. 32; Deut. 9; Neh. 9; Ps. 106; Acts 7; and 1 Cor. 10.) Interpreters debate whom they worshiped in the Golden Calf incident (GCI) when they worshiped the calf.
Did they worship Yahweh, one or more false gods, or both in the GCI when they worshiped the calf?
