There has to be a difference but oftentimes the two are mingled together. I'd say heretics are those that teach anther gospel and or compromise the essential core doctrines of the faith, while a false teacher may just teach a false view on something. Ie Joel Osteen is a heretic, while according to my view those that teach Evangelical Conditionalism I believe to be false teachers.
Those that teach one has to tithe 10% in order to be...
Often we hear and read of theologians claiming that God exists "outside" of time and yet one can look in vain to find such language ever used in the Bible. They simply do not understand the nature of time. They think that time is a "dimension" or "sphere" rather than a measurement of things that have a beginning and end.
God does not exist outside of time, He just cannot be measured by time. The best way to illustrate time is to take a tape measure. A tape measure has a clip at the end...
Does God love all of the lost?
44 But I [Jesus] say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
47 And if...
John 20:31 but these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.
1. The gospel was put in writing that we may believe
2. We must believe in Jesus Christ.
3. Believing in Jesus provides new life. You are now living and no longer dead.
NEW ORLEANS (LBM) – A noted scholar has published a focused assessment on study notes in the newly published Christian Standard Bible (CSB), saying non-Calvinists “will be disappointed” due to the heavy Calvinistic leaning in some of its comments about passages that address salvation.
Adam Harwood, associate professor of theology with the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, described the actual Bible translation as a “theologically conservative resource,” but took issue with the...
There is a point in some of our lives, if not all, when the message of the gospel hit us squarely between the eyes or pierced our hearts, and our physical body was pumping adrenaline like that of a marathon runner. I grew up in church hearing the gospel for years, as well as having it backed up by my mother in our private conversations. At fourteen years of age, it struck home. The questions poured out of me and mom would answer as best she knew how with help from scripture. The heart...
Name the first sin mentioned in the Bible according to Orthodox Judaism? It is found within the first 3 chapters of Genesis. Being able to read Hebrew would make this easier. This sin also leads God to "curse" something also found in the first 3 chapters of Genesis.
A little history here. I was born Jewish and raised in the Orthodox Community. I was an Orthodox Rabbi at one point in my life.
I do not have an ax to grind here and just hoping for some light bantering after a few posts I...
Ordered a copy of the book by this name on eBay and await to read it. But also came across another article.
A Statement on Divorce & Remarriage in the Life of Bethlehem Baptist Church | Desiring God
1. A believer and unbeliever should not marry (1 Cor. 7:39; 2 Cor. 6:14-15).
2. Since death breaks the marriage bond (Rom. 7:2-3; 1 Cor. 7:39), remarriage is permissible without sin for a believing widow or widower, if the marriage is with another believer.
3. Divorce may be...
This thread is motivated by an email I recently received criticizing me for being a staunch proponent of the preaching of the Gospel.
Romans 10:17 states that " faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ", i.e. the Gospel. This is a truth that should be precious to all Christians, but especially Calvinists.
One frequent criticism made about Calvinists is that they proclaim the Gospel in vain. After all, since only the Elect will be saved, and God has chosen His elect from...
I will focus on R rated movies, but the question could entail all movies. The answer to the question may depend on the movie and or the person as this could be a romans issue where to some people a certain film is a sin, and to others it may not be. I imagine that to the Fundamentalist Baptist any R rated movie would be a sin to watch. And on the other side there are those claiming to be evangelical that will watch anything and claim its all okay.
