The comments on God’s Inspiration of the Bible raise the subject of dictation. I am creating this thread more specific just for that topic.
The Bible has ONE Author, God the Holy Spirit, Who dictated to the writers what they should write, as He did with Jeremiah, etc I'll add here that the term "mechanical dictation" is a term invented by liberals to mock evangelicals and fundamentalists. That seems right for the particular expression, but I believe there are two additional considerations:...
What do you believe about the adoption of believers? Have we already been adopted as children of God?
Galatians 4:5 To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.
Romans 8:15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. . . .
23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for...
There is nowhere in the bible that mentions Jesus having a wife and children, but there is also nowhere in the bible that say Jesus did NOT have a wife and children either. Does the allegation the Jesus had a wife and children violate any Christian doctrine? What if Jesus really get married and had children, would it affect any doctrine of Christianity.
In the past two weeks, Kevin Bauder has written two blog posts about inspiration. Here are some excerpts.
When people think about the inspiration of the Bible, they tend to imagine it as a process. They think of inspiration as a way of stating how the Bible got to be what it is. Trying to answer the how question is one of the reasons that we are surrounded by so-called “theories of inspiration.” The verse [2 Timothy 3:16] contains two adjectives: inspired and profitable. This is the point at...
Has the KJV-only claim that the KJV is based on a superior original-language text been proven to be factually true or has it been merely assumed to be true?
D. A. Waite asserted that “the Textus Receptus is based on over 5,210 Greek manuscripts or over 99% of those preserved for us” and that “the Textus Receptus manuscripts are almost perfect mirrors of one another” (Central Seminary Refuted, pp. 67, 95). D. A. Waite wrote: “The Textus Receptus manuscripts vary in spellings somewhat....
To me, the “elect of God” (Mat 24:24: Rom 8:33; Col 3:12; Tit 1:1) are those whom God knows are going to “choose life” (Deu 30:19) and receive the Lord Jesus; and this before the “foundation of the world” (Eph 1:4), even from the eternal past. He chose us before we chose Him, because He foreknew of our receiving Christ into our lives (Jhn 1:12).
Therefore, those whom He foreknew would choose Him, He “predestinated unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the...
Bodily resurrection of the dead is the great hope of the ages.
Job testified to his belief that after he would die, he would yet see God in his flesh:
Job 19:25 For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: 26 And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God: 27 Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.
Long after the bodily resurrection...
God does NOT practice righteousness for the BAC;
the BAC must do the practicing of righteousness for him/her self.
"If you know that He is righteous,
you know that everyone who practices righteousness is born of Him."
1 John 2:29
"Little children, let no one deceive you.
He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous."
1 John 3:7
"In this the children of God and the children of the devil are manifest:
Whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God,
nor is he...
