On another thread it was stated God formed Jesus in Mary’s womb without any of her genetic material. Like Adam, God simply formed the human elements of Jesus, and used Mary to give birth.
This has wide ranging implications of how we view the humanity of Jesus.
I’ll give a few thoughts later, after I’ve had time to consider it. I was hoping others would give their opinions.
peace to you
The concept of "race" didn't exist in ancient history like it does today. Inter-racial marriage was practiced throughout the Bible, including the genealogy of Jesus.
Matthew 1:1-14 - The genealogy of Jesus, in which four Afro-Asiatic women are included: Rahab, Tamar, Ruth, and Bathsheba.
It makes sense that King Solomon would become romantically involved with the Queen of Sheba, given that his mother,...
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...
Unlike our Wesleyan brothers and sisters, Calvinists don’t believe that sinless perfection is possible in this lifetime.
On the other hand, if you live your entire life without any evidence of regeneration, that’s reason to doubt that you were truly saved in the first place.
Sometimes God holds back His sanctifying grace from His elect ones, leaving them to manifold temptations, so they will humble themselves and draw closer to Him.
This is from the 1689 London Baptist Confession, a...

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?
11And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.
The Atonement of Christ has reconciled the elect world to God. It secured and ensured for it [ the elect world] every spiritual blessing needed to live unto God and for His Glory through Jesus Christ.
Even before the elect are born into this world as sinners, they have already [by the blood of Christ] been reconciled to God, it will now be a matter of time for it...
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...
