“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.” (3:16-17)
The main purpose of the study, is to see what Jesus Christ means when He says, “for God so loved the world”. Are we to take these words in their natural meaning, which was so understood for the first three and a half centuries of the...

"How do you feel about the eclipse on August 21,2017, and what are your thoughts on it only touching the USA? So rare and another one coming 7 yrs later April 8, 2024 making an X on America. Do you think this is a sign from God? of Judgment?"
Can anyone quote Calvin stating he taught limited atonement in the manor the typical puritan five pointer would contend?
In all my reading (which admittedly was not exhaustive and much left in the dust of the Forgottenness) I do not recall a single confirming statement, but rather found him embracing the typical view that the blood was certainly for all, but redemption was given to the few. In other words, he seemed to take as factual, Johns view of the atonement as complete and...
Over a few threads @Martin Marprelate , @Yeshua1 and I have disagreed over whether or not certain people held to Penal Substitution Atonement. This began concerning in what way Christ was “made sin” for us but probably should have started here, with defining PSA.
It only took 3 threads to discover that we never settled on the definition of Penal Substitution Atonement. I think we both took for granted the definition was plain, yet we hold different definitions.
What was claimed is that...
The "fig tree" in Matt.24:32 is claimed dogmatically to be Israel. That idea is found nowhere in the entire Holy Bible or Apocrypha. Yet, it is a teaching found in Gnosticism. I quote from the Apocalypse of Peter, found in the Gnostic Society Library online:
"And ye, take ye the likeness thereof (learn a parable) from the fig-tree: so soon as the shoot thereof is come forth and the twigs grown, the end of the world shall come.
And I, Peter, answered and said unto him: Interpret unto me...
I was unable to respond to your response to my comments in time before the thread was closed.
The reason I said that you misunderstand Partial Preterism ("PP" from here on out), is because the view is not necessarily monolithic. I will explain later.
First, let us get the obvious out of the way. PP rejects the mid-19th-century invention of Dispensationalism. I came out of Dispensationalism, so I understand the vitriolic response from the dispensational side towards any view that...
On another thread a brother suggested Martin Luther (and many others) affirmed the Penal Substitution Theory of Atonement (PST) because their understanding of Christ's work contained both penal and substitution aspects. A quick search reveals that this has become a very common position (if you hold to PST yourself). I'd like to look at a few of these, starting with Luther.
Here is what Martin Luther taught on the subject:
“But now, if God’s wrath is to be taken away from me and I am to...
The Wycliffe Bible (1395) does not contain the word "church", but it contains the following:
"chirch", "chirche", "chirches","chirchis" representing the people of God in both Old and New Testaments.
The Tyndale New Testament (1525) uses the word "church" twice, in the NT, Acts 14:13, 19:37; both times representing heathen, idolatrous temples.
The Miles Coverdale Bible (1535) uses the word "churches" three times, in the OT, Lev. 26:31, Hosea 8:14, Amos 7:9; and each time in an idolatrous or...

John Hagee on Salvation for the Jews...
John Hagee, who pastors a church in Texas with an active membership of over 19,000 and who has a radio and television ministry that reaches 99 million homes, has written a book, which, by his own admission, is an attack on the very foundations of the Christian faith! In a video promoting his new book, Hagee makes the following claims:
“In Defense of Israel will shake Christian theology. It scripturally proves that the...
John 16:8 And when he is come,[the Comforter] he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: 9Of sin, because they believe not on me; 10Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; 11Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.
Acts 24:24 And after certain days, when Felix came with his wife Drusilla, which was a Jewess, he sent for Paul, and heard him concerning the faith in Christ.25And as he reasoned of righteousness,...
